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!

We hired Cristo's to make appetizers (meatballs, beef satay, antipasto platter, bacon wrapped scallops, etc) for a 50th birthday party, including a server and a bartender. The food was perfect for the event and the servers were excellent and very professional. Everything went very smoothly and I would highly recommend Cristo's kitchen.

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.

William came to our house to cook for my dads 60th birthday party. Our entire party came to the conclusion that this was one of the most fun nights of our lives. William was extremely personable, kind, and an outstanding chef. The food that William made was spectacular and the night could not have been any better. Thank you again to William for being extremely generous and overall an outstanding chef.

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 have been to many catered events over the years. We recently hired Malone catering for a family party. The food was excellent and people who attended the bash raved about the menu. Malone Catering was responsive to our requests and kept it affordable. The variety of food was only exceeded by its quality. If you are having a catered time, do yourself a favor and hire these guys! (And make sure you invite me). Gerard

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!!

My experience with Penguin Caters has been outstanding from the first phone call through the last guest leaving our party. We used 1caterer and 1 bar tender, and I could not have been happier with either of them. They were very presentable, friendly, helpful, organized, efficient, I could go on and on. Misha, thank you for providing a true 5 star service. Your definitely going to hear from me again should I find myself in need of services like this again. I sincerely thank you.

Her attention to detail was noticed by all my guests who immediately took her card! The beautifully presentation means as much to Kendra as how delicious her food is.

I highly recommend Matt Stogryn as private Chef for parties large and small. I have worked with Matt on a Holiday Party for 100, and a dinner party for 12. Both times, Matt consulted with me with plenty of advance notice regarding menu, food restrictions, and drink pairings. Matt was on time, very organized with his prep. Matt was charming and knowledgeable when presenting each course to my guests, and the food was fantastic! Matt was clear on pricing in advance, took care of every detail. Wit Matt in the kitchen, I was able to enjoy my guests, and we all loved the food.

I know WOW Barbecue from way back; I even dined at their restaurant for a few times. I asked their customer service if they cater and they said yes. I employed them to provide food for my company’s product launch party for more than 200 guests. I contacted them 48 hours before our event, and they were able to deliver on such short notice. The owner and the customer service were very thoughtful; instead of trying to up-selling me, they tried to help me correctly estimate the number of guests and prevented me from over-ordering. Highly recommend them, definitely will hire them again!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
