My job decided to put me in charge of catering our fall employee appreciation event. I wasn’t even sure where to start since I was not familiar with any caterers in the Montgomery County area. So I decided to go to the trusty internet to start my search. I came across thumbtack which is a great site by the way. You basically enter what you are looking for and like magic you start to receive quotes from different caterers in your area. Chef Kevin Reed was very prompt with his response and also included a sample menu with his quote which I thought was excellent. We conversed over email for a while and I was convinced this was the man for the job. I also was adamant about supporting a local small black business. The day of the event, He arrived on time along with his help. I told him what our theme would be and he nailed the set up perfectly. A beautiful fall theme was laid out in our employee lounge right before my eyes. The Chef and his staff were very personable and pleasant to work with. The food was hot, very good and healthy. My coworkers were very impressed with the food and service. I would definitely recommend his services. Hopefully we will be working together again soon on our company Holiday event. We have over 180 employees here and he was able to provide plenty of food and we had lots of leftovers. Kevin is top notch. Highly recommended.

Chef Kev jumped in last minute on a funeral luncheon. Saved the day. Really great food and service. Terrific staff. Could not ask for more and an excellent price. Soooo many people at the luncheon commented about the food and service. Thank you, Chef Kev! You made a difficult day much more manageable.

Chef Serge was eager to please and worked with us throughout the planning process to design a menu that captured our vision for a family wedding dinner. He worked around a number of dietary needs (gluten free and vegetarian options), incorporated vegetables from our garden into several of the recipes, and he even adapted some of the recipes for the kids. The food and service were excellent!

Chef and his team were excellent. Our event was not a typical event and he coped with it superbly. I do the same event every year and the amount of rave reviews from my guests about the food and the service was unprecedented. I will not hesitate to book chef in again or to recommend him and his team.

I cannot recommend Eleven Courses more. I worked with Megan as my coordinator and she was such a delight! She was very professional and easy-going to work with and answered all emailed questions quickly--I can honestly say that throughout the process I felt I was in good hands. I never felt uncomfortable asking about pricing or any strange questions or requests we had and the guidance Megan provided was much appreciated. We traveled a couple hours to Owings Mills, MD (we live in Springfield, VA) to attend our tasting at their offices. We met Jim and Megan in person, and the tasting decided it for my husband and me. We immediately knew these were the caterers for our wedding. The food was incredibly delicious and now, several weeks out after the wedding, our guests are still talking about how tasty everything was. Their prices are amazingly reasonable, especially given how beautifully presented and delicious their meals are--they have an affordable price point, however, the service and food delivered is that of the super-pricy, high-end caterers (services which I often use in my firm and am well-familiar with). It was very much appreciated how they didn't nickel and dime us and were proactive in helping out and finding ways to make the wedding special. We consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to have hired Eleven Courses for our caterers and intend to hire them again, should we plan another huge celebratory bash.

Eleven Courses recently catered my son’s wedding (they also catered my daughter’s wedding) and both times they hit a home run.  The food, service and attention to detail was simply impeccable.  Jim, Megan and the rest of the team were so easy to work with and overly flexible as we constantly changed things around.  Highly Recommended!

I selected Key Ingredients on the reviews on the their food and how they presented their food on the website. Two company's bid on my event the other company's bid was $1600 and Key Ingredients bid was $800 but in the end they changed me an additional $486 over the original quote and I found out later that items I had specified I wanted from the caterer in my Thumbtack original request were not included in my bid and I supplied so items. In the end with price increase and me providing some of the items I would chose them again. The service was great and the food was absolutely delicious. My guess are still talking about how good the food was and I had no left overs to speak of☺ NOTE TO VENDER: Your food and service is well worth the money and your prices are GOOD and reasonable. Don't low ball your services and food, it's well worth every honest dollar.

They were very cordial and very professional, and went out of their way to work with us to accommodate our individual needs on very short notice (we literally hired them the day before). They were also highly sensitive to the fact that the catering was for a memorial service for an immediate family member, and were extremely helpful in choosing an appropriate buffet to fit our budget. In the end, they were kind enough to drop the fees for the last hour because we ended up not needing it, which they technically didn't have to do and was much appreciated. They arrived on time and had everything set up and ready to go when we came back to the venue after the burial service. The food was very good and well-presented, with complements by the guests, and the staff was seamless in doing their work. We would definitely use this company again.

I can not express how thrilled I was with the service, food and attentiveness that came from Key Ingredients and Jose. I threw a 40th Surprise party in our home for my husband with a guest list of 60 adults and 20 children. I requested a latin cuisine which turned out beautifully. Everyone was impressed with the food and the service was seamless down to the small details of decorating the house with tea light candles. The staff passed Hors D'oeuvres and guests were not without food. My husband was so happy with every detail of the party and I would absolutely use Key Ingredients again and refer them to our friends and family. Thank you Jose for making this special event a great success.

Chef Myles' services were great! He served our Graduation Reception at the George Washington University in D.C. He was very accommodating, friendly, flexible, and responsive. He worked closely with our company to stay within budget and still provide superb service. The food was delicious!! I liked the variety in the menu. We had a few issues with prompt food replenishing during our event, so I recommend hiring an additional server for bigger events. Lastly, we were not impressed with our dessert, but I understand our budget restrictions limited his options. Will definitely hire again in the future. Thank you!

JUST HIRE DANIEL! Where do I begin to describe the services provided by Daniel? He was PROFESSIONAL, COURTEOUS, HELPFUL and JUST GREAT He should give lessons in "BarTending with Excellent Customer Service." #VERY TASTY COCKTAILS #DELECTABLE MOCKTAILS Daniel visited the site a few days before hand to decide how he would set up his station. He took all the stress out of deciding what signature drinks we should serve, based on theme, budget, number of guests expected... He provided a list of what we would need to purchase based on scale of party. He hand makes fresh juices as mixers and sets up a thoughtful, first rate display. HIS SERVICE IS SECOND TO NONE He promised that he would arrive 2 hours before the event to set up and was here an extra hour EARLY. His input and assistance is invaluable. His interactions with our guest was what one would expect at a 7 Star Hotel or Restaurant; he was engaging and appropriate. Seriously, no one else should be a contender for your event. If you want to enjoy your event and have guests call you the following day to compliment the services provided by your bartender, who they have "Officially Adopted" USE THE SERVICES OF F&Btainment by Daniel

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.

It was a pleasant experience to work with this company. THey replied quickly and helpfully to our questions (and as a student group we certainly had questions). They clearly made an effort into creating a custom menu for our event and budget. The only unfortunate thing is that there was not as much total food as hoped for and it ran out fairly quickly. But I would still recommend this company to anyone who asks.

I LOVE the healthy catering company, I've ordered from them multiple times and not once have I been disappointed in the slightest. You can see and taste that every dish is made with the tastiest spices and combinations of foods and it always tastes amazing. The food usually becomes the topic of conversation for my gatherings because nothing is mor convenient than being able to have finger food as well as full dishes. on top of that, they are very punctual and are a pleasure to deal with. I wouldn't think of ordering from another company after ordering from the healthy catering company!!

We were delighted! Chef Veronique MacRae, Exec Chef took care of everything. We were celebrating my Father-in-law's life. LTC John Burrer was laid to rest with his wife at Arlington National Cemetery on the 72nd anniversary of D-Day and LTC Burrer was a WWII and Korean War Veteran. We wanted a celebration of his life and food is a huge part of living. Chef Veronique was quick to understand what we wanted and she delivered. We had some idea about the number of guest we would have, but I was concerned that we would not know exactly how many could attend. Chef Veronique told me how she plans for events like this and she did not disappoint. We had plenty of food. Our service at Arlington started earlier then the scheduled time because we had all arrived early. So, that meant we returned to the Marriott Courtyard Rosslyn about an hour ahead of schedule. Chef Veronique had just started to set up when we showed up. She did not panic and continued to do her job in an expedited manner and had us ready to go in no time. There was a great variety of food for our guest to choose from. It was all very tasty and certainly exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend The Tasty Alternative. The food was great, the service was perfect, and the price was exceptional. Respectfully, Dennis L. Winston Salem, NC

Veronique was an amazing chef and were couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. She cooked an abundant and highly flavorful meal for our family of 16. Her food was beyond my expectations. She even made a separate meal (from start to finish) for my daughter who doesn't eat meat. Her ingredients were well chosen and fresh. Her personality was pleasant and fun. She even allowed our kids to help her prepare the meal as a fun way to participate in the evening. She stayed much longer than I thought she might to make sure our meal was thorough and complete. And to top it off, she dealt with a challenging kitchen that might have left less skilled chefs floundering a bit. I couldn't have been more pleased with our experience and I would highly recommend Chef Veronique to anyone looking for a yummy, fun meal.

First of all, the food was absolutely divine -- what a burst of flavor. We were not looking for anything fancy or elegant (the event was a mini IT conference), and the #1 requirement I most desired was delicious food that everyone (including the folks in my field with a plethora of allergies or food preferences) could build for themselves, a la Chipotle-style eating. Not only did Chef Veronique and her associate Kerry come through, but they were incredibly professional, quick-thinking in the face of complications, and obviously put a lot of heart into their work -- from food to delivery and setup. They hit my budget right on target, and everyone (including an attendee who was pretty much allergic to most things) complimented the food all day. I couldn't be happier with them.
