I was extremely fortunate to have Jen Royle host a private catering event for me at my home. I was so impressed with Jen and all her services. Not only did she help plan the perfect menu for me and my guests, but she was on time, executed everything impeccably, and was the ultimate professional. I personally wanted Jen to interact with my guests and she couldn't have been more fun, energetic, or passionate about her food and cooking experiences. It should go without saying that the food was outstanding but just incase you were wondering... it was amazing. I had no idea what type of finger foods would work together but Jen planned the perfect combinations from mini chicken & waffles to tomato soup & grilled cheese shooters to beautiful salads and crostini's. Thank you, Jen for your outstanding catering services and I truly look forward to using you for all my upcoming needs!

Chris was a great caterer. He catered my son's Bar Mitzvah luncheon. He was extremely accomodating and helpful in planning the menu. Chris even went to my favorite bagel store to purchase the bagels! The food was delicious and his presentations were lovely. Additionally, his staff/servers were very professional and friendly. His prices were fair and reasonable and he provided much flexibility within our budget. He was prompt, leaving himself plenty of set up time. He and his staff also helped at the end with table and chair break down. I would highly recommend hiring Chris Hoffman to cater your event. I understand he also does personal home catering!

Daniel catered my daughter's graduation from high school/18th birthday. We have family members that are used to high end catering experiences. All were quite impressed. Daniel did a phenomenal job. The quality far exceeded expectations, the presentation was breathtaking. Daniel sat with my daughter and me to understand what we hoped to achieve and exceeded our expectations. I would use Daniel's catering services for both personal and work related functions and would recommend Daniel as caterer of choice.

It was truly a wonderful experience providing a different meal each week for 11 weeks. We not only enjoyed variety, but also very tasty, filling meals prepared with great care. Sara sought not just to serve food but to serve a group of adults each week with her culinary delights and her strong desire to meet our catering needs. Deacon Larry Cummins

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.

I can't speak highly enough of my experience with Manda & Me Catering. After Julie's prompt response to my Thumbtack inquiry we spoke over the phone about my ideas and concerns re: menu for the surprise birthday party I was planning. She was warm and professional, offering suggestions re: serving options as this was my 1st time hosting an event of this magnitude. Julie translated my jumbled ideas into several varied & balanced menu options from which to choose. Leading up to the day of the event she stayed in communication, making sure to check in about little details like color scheme for the party so the paper goods she brought didn't clash. On the day of the event Julie was on-time and so efficient with set up, creating a gorgeous and tempting display. Of course, not only did the food look amazing but it tasted delicious! Our guests raved about the menu and the empty chafing dishes really spoke volumes! I'm so grateful to Julie for her collaboration for this party and I highly recommend her for your upcoming event!

Hostess Catering catered our holiday open house for 100 people this weekend and everything was perfect. Visnja and Donna accommodated our desire for a completely gluten-free menu and our guests all raved about the delicious food. The servers were professional, personable and made our guests feel pampered. Most of all, I knew we were in good hands and was able to enjoy visiting with our friends and family!

William and his team were exceptional. The food was delicious, even when scaled up to serve 150 people (always gotta wonder how the amazing meal for two at the tasting will scale...just as excellent in this case!). They were thoughtful and attentive to details (details I wasn't even thinking or worried about). William worked with me to find something that was within our budget. The food was definitely our splurge item for the wedding as we both love good food but we definitely splurged on the right caterer. Don't plan on ever planning a wedding again, but if I did, would definitely hire again!

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.

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!

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!

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!

I had no idea what I wanted for food for my sister's bridal shower and Billy came up with a menu that I loved. The food was phenomenal as well as the presentation. It was a little crazy the day of and when he arrived but he was able to adapt and work around all of the people running around. I will definitely be keeping him in mind for anything else we need catered!

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.

I had Michael and his staff at my house party. They all came at early to help set up the home for the party as in putting the buffet together putting out plate for appetizers, and setting up the bar. They clean after the party was done. I will make sure I tell my other friends about this company. THank you again for such a great time, I actually got to enjoy my company.

Don is absolutely the best home chef who has prepared full meals for our busy family. Everyone, from Mom and Dad to the kids ranging from teenager to toddler, raves about his delicious and well planned meals. As a testament, everyone would rather eat Don's home prepared meals than go out to a restaurant, especially if the meal if followed up by one of his wife's homemade cookies! His service allows us to eat fine cuisine together as a family without worrying about "keeping a lid" on the little ones at a nice restaurant.
