Chef Kev was fantastic! Great food, arrived on time and went above and beyond setting everything up beautifully. He really cared that everything was just right. Also the food was amazing!! I would definitely recommend him to a friend, and use his catering services again in the future.

Chef Serge and Aaron are an exceptional team. Our Memorial Day grill / pool party was fueled by chef’s outstanding food, service, and conversation. I’m not sure we can have another large party without the expertise of Chef Serge! Highly recommend he and his team for your next outing. We are already planning ours. Many thanks for making memories for my family. Bring in Chef Serge to cater your food needs and just worry about having fun!

Top of the city catering was responsive, professional, and worked very well with us to plan and execute the event. The food was delicious, and I felt like I had a great partner every step of the way. This was for a corporate holiday lunch event, and we have received nothing but compliments from the 100 people that were invited.

I don't think I can truly and fully express how blessed Ryan and I were to have had Eleven Courses as our caterer for our wedding day. From the moment we had our tasting, to the finalizing of details, to the actual wedding day, Ryan and I were in great hands. There was NEVER a doubt in our minds that Eleven Courses would let us down. I feel like I could write an entire essay on how amazing Melissa Benson and the rest of the Eleven Courses crew carried themselves throughout this wedding planning process, without mentioning how amazing the food was...because I could totally write an entire essay on that too. To keep things short though, Melissa was just great with following up and answering all of our questions. Catering to our vegetarian guests was a breeze, and making changes to the contract was effortless. Melissa, I am so sad Ryan and I never got the honor of meeting you in person, but if I could, I would give you a HUGE hug right now for everything you did for us. Chrissy was our day of coordinator, which i was personally ecstatic about because she hosted our food tasting, and I absolutely loved working with her. Chrissy, if you are reading this, I am so sad that i did NOT get a chance to hug you that day, because you were just awesome about listening to our needs, and really making sure that Ryan and I got a chance to eat. Not only that, but Ryan and I came back to the venue and found that the room was absolutely spotless. Thank you SO much for taking care of the cleanup. Now on to the food: I can only say one word: incredible. EVERYONE in the wedding commented on how crazy amazing the food was. We barely had any leftovers!! [Which, I was very sad about haha]. Chef Jim, it was such an honor to have met you....your dishes were excellent. And my goodness, can I just also add how incredibly humble Chef Jim is? This is actually turning into an essay, so to sum it all up, Eleven Courses, I am thoroughly impressed with how great you guys were on our special day. If I ever need catering services, I will call you up in a heartbeat. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Lena

I can only say good things about my experience with Chef Myles. Everything was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. I was unsure of the menu and Chef Myles helped me plan what to serve and the party goers loved every single item. I will use Chefs 2 Go Catering for all my catering needs!!!!!!

I genuinely can’t say enough good things about this business. I hired AC Catering for two events I held in June and July 2017. Everything was excellent! I was beyond happy with everything from the food, to the services, to the people I interacted with during the planning phase and the actual events. This small, family owned business actually exceeded my expectations. They have an extensive menu to choose from which allowed me to tailor both events’ meals appropriately. The pricing was great and the amount of food I received was more than enough. AC Catering received many compliments for the quality of their food at both of my events. I took a risk and hired them without having tasted any of their food, but I have to say there was no need for worry. The food was also delicious! Both my guests and I enjoyed every bite. The serve and clean up service was also top notch. George Sullivan and his staff were extremely attentive to my needs during my banquet. They helped to ensure that the dinner ran smoothly, and cleanup was quick and efficient. I can't leave this review without noting that it was a great pleasure working with George Sullivan (principal owner/operator) when coordinating my needs. He was very responsive to the myriad of questions I had, extremely flexible as I proposed changes for my event, and just an extremely nice guy. I am so glad I found this business. I will definitely be using AC Catering if I have any catering needs in the future.

Chef Nikki is the BOMB.COM!! She and her husband Paul are excellent in the kitchen and on the grill... She can cook for me and my husband every day if she wants too, we will never turn her down...😂😂😘😘Every meal is excellent and tasteful down to the deserts. Nikki is very clean and sanitary, you don't have to worry. She takes her business and license very serious... I definitely recommend her for your next meal, your next desert or your next catering event... Also, make sure you check her out for your hair care needs on IG @Nikko.stylez.

I had Afro-Veg cater my house warming party and it was beyond what I could have imagined. She was very professional and helped me come up with vegan foods that would cater to my vegan friends as well as satisfy the taste pallet of my carnivorous guest too. She brought my vision to life in the form of African inspired food. The food was amazingly good and everyone to this day still talk about it. I will definately use her services again for other events as well as recommending her for catering services. This is by far the best vegan food I ever tasted!

Chesapeake Food Works has provided catering services to me through my position as Executive Assistant to the Headmaster of an independent Baltimore boys' K-12 school, since Jan 2007, at least. I initially worked with the owner, Amy LeVie, until roughly Oct 2011, through Coburn's Restaurant, where she was the catering manager. I began working directly with Chesapeake Food Works around Nov 2011 when Amy purchased the catering business and have maintained a consistent working relationship since that time. I do a tremendous amount of events planning and CFW has provided me with everything from a simple wraps/salads/desserts/drinks luncheon for three people up to a full buffet event for 300 people and everything in between. CFW has provided breakfasts, lunches, dinners, morning or afternoon snacks, and refreshments, of an ever changing variety over the course of the years. At times, they may be on campus several times during any given week. They are professional and provide a consistently high quality product. I never have to worry that they will not show up or they will forget things for an event. When I request a quote for an event, I generally receive a response within an hour or two and rarely wait even 24 hours. I have recommended them to just about every other department within my organization and many now use CFW on a consistent basis. In addition, I have also recommended CFW to friends and family members. If you are looking for a caterer who is reasonable, conscientious, dependable, and consistently provides great service and really good food, I would highly recommend that you use Chesapeake Food Works.
