I am so lucky to have hired Jen to cater a surprise 50th birthday party for my husband - all planned with less than a two week notice. The party was at our home with 40 of our close friends and I wanted casual, fun, and delicious food for our guests. Jen did not disappoint. I was able to select items from her website and they all turned out to be as good as they looked in the photos. We served hearty appetizers (finger foods) and Jen was very helpful in recommending what to select and how much would be needed. The best part is that she removed all the stress for me so I could just enjoy our guests. I highly recommend Jen for any private event. She not only is great with food but she is super friendly. Thank you Jen!

In-home catering for birthday party- buffet luncheon, for 50 people. Sara was a pleasure to work with - both professionally and personally. She was very responsive to modifications in menu, with helpful suggestions along the way. Food was of high quality, well-prepared and presented. Servers were very pleasant and helpful to guests, as requested. Very positive,unsolicited 'reviews' from everyone about the food, Sara, and her staff. High recommendation!

Catered my wife's 40th birthday party at our residence. Made many special requests such as coconut shrimp, california rolls, and miso sea bass. Everything was outstanding. Many guest commented on how good the flanks steak and grilled vegetables were. But by far, people raved about the miso sea bass. Even asking for the recipe. Plus, Chris left the kitchen spotless. Maybe even cleaner than he found it! Would hire him again.

I was extremely lucky to randomly find Daniel on Thumbtack. I was planning a big birthday party August 5 and wanted to enjoy my party instead of being exhausted. Daniel took care of everything from tables, chairs, tablecloths, bartender, the waitresses and of course the food. He is a very very calm person and everything went marticulous and a great time was had by all. Excellent food and desserts served In time and very professional in the service and cleaning. I recommend him highly and would use hI'm again for another carefree party. Nishat Siddiqi

My friends and I enjoyed our dinner together. I liked the environment that we cooked in. The chef was very knowledgeable and we all enjoyed sharing in the cooking. One of the items was a new recipe that she tried on us that did not turn out well and the dinner also took longer than expected. I appreciated the price she gave us and thought that was reasonable considering the entire event.

John catered an in-home 80th birthday party for 25 people this past weekend. All the food was excellent and well-presented - beautiful stationary displays and the passed appetizers won raves. John was very easy to work with, very professional and very helpful in crafting the menu. I knew what I wanted for the most part, but he helped me hone in on the perfect amount of food. We had enough food that the anyone could come back for seconds or thirds, but not an insane amount of leftovers that would go to waste.

Visnja & Donna did a wonderful job catering our my Mother's 60th birthday party. We chose them because they were open, flexible, and the food was amazing. Hostess Catering also offered a great value for high quality, delicious food. They didn't try to nickel and dime everything, but were willing to work with us to create the menu we wanted within our budget. They were professional and easy to work with. I would love to work with them again and recommend them to anyone!

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.

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!!

Helga catered the holiday party at my place of business. It was my first time catering this event and the first time I'd used Helga. She was wonderful; the food was delicious; and the event was a huge success! I will employ her services for future events. Helga made it easy to figure out what to serve; she works with you on the menu, taking into consideration the budget and preferences. She is personable and professional, and the food she prepares is homemade and delicious.

He was very personable! He will definitely be hired for my next event!

It was an amazing experience, from start to finish. Her menu selections were perfect for an early Summer Dinner Party for eight. The drinks were out of this world, the appetizers were tremendous, the dinner- truly delicious, and the desert, fantastic! They arrived on time, were unassuming and completely professional and the kitchen was magically spotless when they left. Cheers to Mary and Gathered Table!!

I hired Only Catering to do a barbecue for my husband's birthday party of 35 people. I had never used a caterer before and was nervous. Laurie worked with me to get the menu I wanted: Barbecue ribs, chicken wings, pulled pork, baked beans, potato salad, coleslaw, vegetable salad, veggies and dip, all at a very reasonable price. The food was excellent and plentiful. My worry about not having enough food was unfounded....there was enough left over for several meals afterward! Laurie's catering service includes food, table cloths, paper products, utensils, and beverages if you want them. We were very pleased with her service and would highly recommend Only Catering.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
