FABULOUS!!!!! Attentive to our needs, read my mind, anticipated what my guests would need and had an incredible personality! I received so many compliments from 65 guests about how phenomenal she was. The food was amazing, the service was amazing and her personality was terrific! I had some ideas in mind, and she was able to use her expertise to customize a menu that was absolutely perfect; it couldn't have been better. She was at my house for 10 hrs, and she stayed the entire time and it didn't impact the price at all. Even on the initial contact Jen was outstanding in understanding our catering needs. Her menu is expansive and not limited to what is posted on her website. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

We could not get our usual caterer. I found Sara's Cooking through the web via Thumbtack. I am so glad we did! She put everything together in very short notice. The food was fantastic! Cooked to perfection, extremely tasty and she was so accommodating to anything we wanted. Her prices where more affordable as well. Sara's Cooking will be one of our regular go to caterers from now on. I highly recommend her!

For more than 15 years I have been involved in fundraising. I have worked with dozens of caterers over these many years and I can confidently say that Cristo's Kitchen and Catering is the best that I have worked with. Outstanding service, detail oriented, professional, delicious food, honest and a great guy. Highly recommended and I look forward to working with them again.

I met Daniel for catering for my wedding. He was the only caterer who came to my venue right off the bat to view how everything would work. He also came to my home and put together a fabulous tasting with enough leftovers for us to enjoy in days after. Daniel was very willing to work with in our budget and was very professional, warm and friendly I would highly recommend Daniel and will be contacting him for any future altering needs.

John and his team were very professional!! They performed duties beyond their scope because my event planner wasn't doing her job. They all-in-all were instrumental at making sure my guests, myself and husband were well taken care of, from bringing water and a platter of food out to us when pictures were being taken, communicating with our DJ in a professional manner which in turn prompted my DJ to make a public announcement on how spectacular J & L Catering was. If I hadn't mentioned, the food was fantastic. I had great reviews from my family and friends for days/weeks. I would whole heartedly recommend John of J & L Caterers for all weddings.

William catered our family style wedding reception for 170 people at a private venue and we could not be happier. Not only is the food he cooks amazing, the service he provides is second to none. Prior to reaching out to William, we had been working with another larger, better known, and well-reviewed catering company. They turned out to be entirely unhelpful, unwilling to offer alternatives to help keep our budget manageable and did not take kindly to any requests outside their standard menu and offerings. After eating the deposit on our first caterer, we gave William a call and he provided the exact opposite experience. From our first phone call until after the event was over, he was wonderful to work with. He helped us with crafting a menu, determining alcohol volume (we had a backyard wedding), cocktail and reception layout, and even timeline. He was always very quick to respond, made extremely helpful suggestions, worked around our schedules (and held the tasting in our apartment), accommodated changes to dishes to make sure we got exactly what we wanted, provided more food (and rentals!) for far less money than other caterers we assessed, and had an extremely professional service staff. After it was all over, he put some leftover food in our fridge and my wife and I were able to enjoy it again for dinner the following night with a bottle of champagne. If you're looking for a caterer that really cares not only about the food that he cooks but also about you and making your event amazing, you've already found him.

Donna and Visnja were amazing! It was my first timing looking for caterers and I had a great experience. I primarily spoke with Donna and she was so bubbly, polite, and professional. She was quick to answer any of my questions and was very accommodating. I had a large family party but did not want to have a formal sit down dinner, so I opted for 3 of their food stations-the boardwalk, the skewer and the salad stations. They set everything up buffet style so my guests could eat at their choosing. I got so many compliments on the food! I was especially pleased to hear that the vegetarians of the group loved having so many tasty options (from the salad station). Next time I need to cater an event I know who to call. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer!

My husband and I hired S.Y.B Catering and Bar Services - a Division of S.Y.B Event Planning Services, for our wedding at the Waterworks Museum this past September and the entire staff, particularly Owner and our Day of Coordinator Soraya Y. Belgacem , were incredible to work with. We came to her not even a month before our date because our caterer we originally had backed out due to a death in the family. She met with us at the Waterworks, we chose her over another caterer because she was familiar with the venue, as it is not your typical lay out. She showed us her sample menu, listened to what we wanted and then gave us her opinion. She was even able to add table cloths, tables and chairs, to our order as the other caterer was handling that. Her staff, bartenders and catering team came in early, set up everything, decorated the tables. Everything looked AMAZING and we both were very happy. The food was also amazing, almost not your "typical" boring wedding foods. We wanted a social type of party, so we did lots of fun passed appetizers, chicken and waffle skewers, spinach and feta cigars, ahi tuna tar tar that they served on a spoon, mini Swedish meatballs, which came out on mini plates and mini forks (So cute!!) The food stations were also set up, very nicely. Since they specialize in Mediterranean, we did some fresh sea-foods, which were amazing and a Middle Eastern station, we never tasted Hummus like that before!! The bar service was great, amazing bartender, fun and happy. We did a custom cocktail - that was a pink and blue color, it tasted amazing. We even had champagne handed out as people walked in through the doors. Soraya handled everything to a T, we did not have to worry about anything. ALL of her staff were so professional and worked very hard! They even wrapped up some left overs for our after party! We can’t thank S.Y.B Event Planning Services and Soraya enough for helping to make our wedding day so wonderful!

I found Malone Catering on Thumbtack while assisting my son to find a caterer for his wedding. When I first saw the menus and prices I really thought I had to be misunderstanding, His prices are so reasonable that I could not believe he was in any way related to other wedding caterers. It seems that all wedding services have a 4X markup and we really needed to stay within a very frugal budget. I called Chef Marty and found him to be very easy to work with and very accommodating and I sent his info to my son immediately. The wedding last Sunday at Camp Kiwanee was beautiful and the guests raved about the delicious food. We had requested a buffet style and Marty and his staff did the serving. Absolutely wonderful. And I cannot say enough about his staff. They were so unobtrusive I never noticed them clearing after dinner but they did an incredible job. And every one of them was friendly and helpful and seemed happy to be there. I know my son and is new wife were extremely pleased with Malone Catering. We will not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a quality caterer at a reasonable price.

We selected Renee & her company Blonde on the Run Catering for our in-home Italian Wine tasting/pairing party and we were so happy we did. Renee and Tamara were friendly, professional and very accommodating in all aspects. The menu Renee came up with to match the 7 wines from Italy rocked. The food pairing was truly a match made in heaven. We look forward to hiring Renee for our next wine tasting party!

I am so glad that I found Chef Michael Haigh to do the catering for my birthday party. He did not disappoint in any way. From beginning to end Michael was a pleasure to work with, very flexible and professional in arranging for the best menu for the birthday meal, and then in delivering on the delicious meal.

Every year we do a thank you bbq to all those who participated in the cystic fibrosis walk for my daughters team. For the last 5 years I have had caterers that were just ok forcing me to look for another. This year fred and celebrations catered the event. It was amazing from the food, to the service. There was not one negative to mention. It was effortless for me which was great. I can't wait to use them again next year!!!! I am so happy not to have to look for any new caterers..Fred you won our hearts from your delicious food and service and the amazing attention to detail.

We worked with their catering division, and really appreciated their ability to tailor a menu specifically to our needs (a thematic party about travel to the UK & Ireland). Their ideas for apps were spot on and they also served up a specialty cocktail and whiskey tasting, and worked with our non-standard event space, which added up to a great value compared with renting a restaurant space!

I asked my daughter if she knew someone who could cook African rice. She mentioned that she knew someone who was a chef and started an catering company (Infuse Catering). My daughter spoke to the caterer and placed an order for Rice and Beef along with Shito. We didn't know there were 3 different types of African Rice. Although I received the wrong rice, I loved it. My daughter spoke with the caterer and they said that they would make me another to my liking.

Gathered Table catered a wedding in my home of 30 adults and some kids. Mary was wonderful to work with - they accommodated a very short timeline and she was wonderful about the menu and allowing me plenty of time for modifications and changes. She was laid back and relaxed, which helped ease my anxiety. The group was half Brazilian and half American, so they also made both Brazilian and American specialties. The food was awesome! They were extremely reliable and showed up with the right number of staff members to service the crowd well. The only negative was that we asked for leftover food to be left with us since we paid for it, but my guests saw them leaving with a lot of the food they brought in. Perhaps we ate most of the food and didn't really have leftovers, however this was not communicated with me or with my sister, who was communicating directly with them when I was not able to. My only suggestion would be to clarify this upfront. Late night when there were only 10 of us left having fun, we would have loved to dig in for more food!

There's not enough space or time to explain how pleased we were with our pig roast. Thyme and Tide was very professional. The food was phenomenal. Everything was fresh. There was no hidden costs. Price was Fair. We even had leftovers! This guy knows food and he left no mess behind. He'll be back at our house again for many years to come.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
