My husband and I hired Jen to prepare a "heavy apps" cocktail party for about 20 people. It (and she) was incredible! Her food was impeccable, flavor and presentation couldn't be beat. My personal favorites were her chicken pot pie cupcakes and shrimp scampi skewers. Lots of options and trust us, no one left hungry! We will absolutely have Jen back and I have given her information to a couple of my guests for their future parties. Honestly, you won't be disappointed!

Sara and her team provided fantastic catering services to a house party of forty people. Sara customized the menu and provided the right service and peace of mind to the host for the occasion. Guests gushed at the exquisite spread and food. Where so many caterers are high priced and rigid, Sara's courtesy, professionalism, flexibility, responsiveness and affordability back an art form.

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.

We had a house party that was for about 35 guests and we hired Daniel for the catering. It was the best decision we made! The food was amazing, from the hot appetizers to the main courses (chicken, beef) to the variety of desserts- it was all delicious. I couldn't believe how many guests commented about the food and the presentation. And the presentation was certainly unique- he served the entrees in giant martini glasses so that we could stand and mill about while holding food. Fantastic idea. Daniel first came over to our house to check out the layout and kitchen and we went over the menu and how we were going to set everything up. This helped to make sure that everything on the day of the party went smoothly. He had a server (his daughter) and she was such a huge help and worked very hard. Together, they took care of everything related to the food - everything! All the food was fresh and cooked right in the kitchen so we weren't eating reheated food. They not only cooked here and served, but they took care of the clean up and packaged and put away all the extra food for us. They took all the stress away from planning a party and we were left to enjoy ourselves. We had so many people we hadn't seen for years that it was wonderful to just relax and enjoy the conversation and food with them. I can't recommend Daniel highly enough. We would definitely hire him again!

Extremely professional, never had to ask for next course, very clean which is impressive since we did have barbecue meatballs, no sloppy messes. We have hot appetizers through out the party (2hrs.). As for the future, COME BACK!

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.

I think it is a resounding testimony when guests at a party are taking a photo of a persons business card during an event. Everything William did was impeccable, and made himself totally available during the event. I would (and will) recommend William to anyone that ever asks me about potential caterers for any event. I have no faults whatever to highlight, I'm sure that if I asked William to mow the lawn as part of festivities preparation that he would have done it without question.

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!

I used Lori's catering services for a small get together and birthday party for about 30 people. Since I was a novice at party giving, Lori was very good about checking in with me along the way and making suggestions about both the menu and the setup. We had more than enough food which had been a particular worry of mine since I could not picture amounts. The party was for noon on a Sunday and I elected to do sort of a blend between a brunch and a lunch. In particular, the strata, mango salad and berry fruit salad were the most popular and I found that the dressings, sauces and spreads that accompanied the food were what added to the uniqueness of the ham, rolls and other salads. Everything was tasty and fresh. The delivery person was on time and helpful with food placement as it was a buffet style. The dishes were all set to go on platters and we supplied the serving utensils and beverages. I would certainly recommend Lori for whatever occasion you might need these services.

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.

Working with Natural Foods was an absolute pleasure. From the initial contact through to the end, it was so easy. I was looking for a caterer for my housewarming party of 60. I really appreciated the focus on sustainable & seasonal. I was able to give Mr. Sawicki the framework of what I was looking for and he created such a unique & varied menu, I really felt like he listened and delivered on the party I was trying to create. My friends raved about the stuffed figs and amazing entrees! (the fish was amazing!) It was so easy to enjoy my party and so stress free. Professional, unique and you could see all the special touches. Natural Foods will be catering more of my parties, now I just need to have more reasons for parties!

We loved Vanessa! She helped with a friends and family party we had for about 50 people which was a mix of adults and kids. She wore multiple hats that night including tending bar, setting out food, cleaning up and restocking anything that needed to be filled. She stayed later than the time I booked her, since our dinner was running late, and had a great attitude about it. We'll definitely book her again.

I've worked with Chef Michael on many occasions ranging from intimate dinner parties to larger-scale holiday gatherings. Not only does he possess multifaceted culinary talent and knowledge, but he is also one of the most kind and patient men in the industry. His cheerful demeanor and grace under pressure make working with him an absolute pleasure. Anyone seeking someone with his level of expertise need look no further.

Food was amazing! She was amazing! I really didn't know what I wanted and she help me through figuring out what would work for my dinner party of 10. I also have some complicated food restrictions and she very willingly work around them. We ended up with an awesome three course meal. Most important she was able to go with the flow, if I didn't have something she needed she worked around it, when guests hadn't pretold me what they don't eat she worked around it. Everyone had a great time and it was because of the food and the service. Highly recommended!!

Cindy was very easy to communicate with when arranging for a bar-tender to serve drinks at our 60 person function. The bar-tender she provided was excellent and everything went perfectly - I'd definitely use Catering for You again.
