My job decided to put me in charge of catering our fall employee appreciation event. I wasnât 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 Serge did a great job preparing hot hors d'oeuvres and mini dessert for 30 guests at our holiday open house last weekend. He arrived in advance with two women to help serve and left our kitchen cleaner than when they arrived. He was respectful of our budget, quick to answer email, and made the whole experience of working together easy and enjoyable. Among the appetizers served: Chef Serge's chicken samosas with delicious (African inspired?) filling, shrimp scorpions with spicy sauce to die for and bread pudding were the big hits of the night. Merci Chef Serge!
I contacted her 2 weeks before my church's Mission Conference to prepare dinner for Thursday and Friday night of the Conference for 75 and 100 people, respectively. Though my church was delayed in making payment prior to the event, she kept our contract and prepared all the meals on time. The food, Italian on Thursday and Jamaican on Friday, all tasted wonderful and everything was professionally done. Mercedes was pleasant and profession to work with. Thank you MJE!
I can tell you from experience that Top of the City is by far and away the best deal for a 5 star catering experience. Our 6th daughter was just married and I wish we had found Top of the City for the first 5. They gave us the best price with the most elegance and the most complete service than any of the previous caterers we used or interviewed, and we probably have checked out 30 during the past few years. Our guests raved over the appetizers, the dinner was nicely prepared and plentiful. The staff was very professional and friendly. Our wedding reception went smoothly and we were free to enjoy ourselves. Maribel the owner was immediately responsive every step of the way in the planning and flexible in accommodating our special needs and desires. Top of the City gets my vote for the best deal in town.

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.
Excellent service all around. Locally grown, and sourced in Lancaster county. Everything was either home cooked or prepared right in our kitchen. The chefs were professional and friendly. It was nice having them at our house. After diner they cleaned up the whole kitchen. Melissa said she enjoys researching any cuisine, so don't be afraid to ask for something exotic. Our dinner was for my wife's birthday, and included our immediate family. Everyone was very impressed. Our only wish was that we had more spacious stomachs. I highly recommend Stone Hill Catering and hope to have them over to prepare another special dinner.
I am the family party planner so when we planned a company sponsored happy hour, I was tasked with finding a caterer. I received several proposal from caterers on Thumbtack but decided on Chef Myles for his total solution. Everything was included; no hidden costs after the contract was signed. The food was prepared on premises under less than perfect conditions in an office environment with a small kitchen. The food was excellent and plentiful. Chef Myles staff were friendly and accomodating. I received many kudos for my selection of the caterer and the delicious food but the kudos should definitely go to Chef Myles and his staff. Thanks, for making me look good Chef Myles!
I enjoyed working with Dianna Gilbert of Catering Reserved because on my initial inquiry for caterers on thumbtack, she responded immediately. She listened to my requests and provided the menu I wanted. Ms Gilbert responded right away to any questions or concerns I had because this was all being planned from out of state. On the night of the dinner, the food arrived on time and was set up as she promised and I received many many compliments on the menu from my guests.
On a whim, I decided to use Thumbtack to find a caterer for my mom's 72nd birthday party. OMG. I am SOOOO glad that I did!! I have planned a number of parties in my day, and I have yet to find one with such great professionalism and wonderful customer service I experienced with AC Catering. First off, they can fix just about anything!! While I had a basic menu in mind, I was forced to rethink things based on the wide variety of options presented by AC Catering. Other caterers wanted me to come up with the menu initially without giving me an idea of their speciality items. With AC Catering, you can get ANYTHING from breakfast, lunch, dinner..including smoked pit grilled items. So, I contacted them with my initial thoughts for a menu. Within 2 days, I received a proposal from the owner, George. Pricing was perfect, even with delivery. Additionally, they provide utensils, plates, condiments, etc. I was pleased. I had to make a last minute change. George was able to accommodate my request with no hassle. I called him just to make sure this change wouldn't pose a problem. He said "No worries. I got you." And, he wasn't kidding. So, party day comes. I'm a bit nervous because I never tasted the food or visited his brick and mortar store. However, the previous reviews from Thumbtack customers were all stellar. After meeting George in person, I totally understand why the reviews are so stellar. George is extremely pleasant and engaging. He arrived on time and was totally prepared to set up everything. He shared some jokes with my brother. Gave compliments to the birthday girl. He even shared the history about his family business. This party was for 50+ people. So, everything had to be right. Let me just say that George and his team didn't disappoint! The greens (with smoked turkey), baked beans and rice were EXCELLENT. I've eaten a lot of rice in my day. But, can I tell you how fabulous the yellow rice is? Very delicious. For meats, I ordered bbq chicken and burgers. Again, everything was wonderful. You would think burgers would just be bland and lacking flavor. NOT AC Catering burgers. They were thick, juicy, and seasoned well. More than enough food was provided. In fact, I had to encourage guests to take home plates of food. The deviled eggs were tasty. However, they were a bit messy due to lots of filling. But, it was totally fine. My guests put the smash on them. All throughout the event, everyone had positive comments and asked "who catered the food?" I didn't hesitate to tell them about George and AC Catering. I HIGHLY recommend them. In fact, I'm trying to find another excuse to celebrate so I can utilize them again!! Thank you, George, for making my mom's birthday so great. You will be hearing from me again. May your catering business continue to grow. God Bless you and your family.
I must say hands down the best experience Chef B was so friendly and she made my husband’s birthday a most memorable one. She made the most amazing Mexican meal. It’s was so much food we had so much left over. She was so insightful and explained so much about Mexican Dishes I felt like I was experiencing it first hand. Her conversation was on point and we would definitely have her back over. She even cleaned the dishes at the end of the night. Thank you Chef B you rock!!!
PHG personnel where very professional and helpful from the get go. Candi, who set up the reservation for us, was understanding and very helpful to meeting our needs. The delivery was punctual. The food was great and everyone at the office party enjoyed the meal with complements that a great caterer was selected and a job well done. I wasn't to thank the PHG team for their service to DC Water and look forward to more opportunities with PHG. God bless PHG and may He grow their company beyond borders in Jesus name, amen.
I held a birthday brunch for a friend in my home for 15 guests. Iyea prepared chicken and red velvet waffles, shrimp and grits, and egg fritatta. The food was delicious and there was more than enough quantity wise. Iyea stayed in touch leading up to my event and followed up afterward for feedback. I would use her again. She does not handle the presentation of the food so you will need to be prepared with your own serving dishes.
We requested Tacos El Rey for catering our sons 1st communion. They were very professional, punctual, and did an excellent job in setting up our food. I would definitely have them cater again. The quality of favor in their food was superb. Our guest thought the fajita steak was outstanding, tender and flavorful.
Creative Visions Cuisine--the best ever. My guests are still talking about Sandra and her team--the food was great and very elegant, the team were wonderful to work with, and the guests felt royal. The best caterer ever....
I was asked to complete the task of finding a caterer for breakfast for a corporate meeting of 80 people within 4 days and to have them deliver the food before 6am. Thomas Franklin at Columbia Chef Catering was the 3rd business I had spoke to regarding my function. He was so pleasant and when he said yes to the 5:30am drop off I was sold!! Thank you so much for all of your assistance in making our function so much more pleasurable.
