Chef Kev prepared an excellent menu for our dinner party. Everything was prepared and delivered on time. We were very happy with Chef Kevs service.
Chef Serge is so great! He is professional, charming, and super flexible! We hired him for a dinner party and the guests loved him too! I would recommend Chef Serge to everyone!
Mercedes Jo & Staff, thank you for Catering my 50th Birthday party and the food was absolutely amazing! All of my guests raved about the taste of each dish, many thanks and I am forever grateful!
Best value you could get in a wedding catering company! Quick basic info on my wedding since yours might be different: Late May wedding in Maryland, 7-hour reception with cocktail hour and dinner, approx. 100 guests, Manor, garden & tented reception setting, buffet dinner including a mix of food and drinks representing the cultures of the bride & groom (salvadoran, thai, new orleans, baltimore). Just two days after our wedding day I am feeling so good about the decision we made in booking Top of the City Catering. Maribel and her team were absolutely fantastic and we received soooo many compliments on our food, desserts, and cocktails, which were all provided by Top of the City. They had also done a great job of setting up décor for the guest tables, around the venue, and for the buffet and bar areas. In addition, the service throughout the day and night was phenomenal and we (bride & groom) always felt taken care of. For planning, we wanted a rustic, elegant feeling and they did a great job of presenting us ideas that were aligned with our vision. Top of the City Catering is a smaller catering business, but that does not make it any less in quality. When we were first looking into Top of the City I was a little leery because it was much more affordable and it usually is said, "You get what you pay for," but in this case that was NOT true at all. Maribel and her team are very responsive in communication, are very open and welcoming to your ideas and direction, and will always give suggestions from their expertise but still respect your wishes should you want something different. I really hope that Top of the City will gain momentum in growing its business and gaining the respect it deserves. Don't let the size of the company distract you from the amazing service, quality of food, flexibility, and affordable price you will get from Top of the City catering. Get a consultation with them and see for yourself!
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.
Chef Myles did a great job putting on a Mexican themed buffet for a last minute party. the food was delicious and just what we were looking for! Chef Myles was easy to work with and brought everything needed which made throwing the party very easy.
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 thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Chef Jackie. She is a delightful person, who also did a lovely job cooking, serving, and cleaning up for a small (4 people) dinner party. She arrived late, but did call to let us know, and she was ready when the guest of honor and her partner arrived. The presentation was nice, and the food was good. Her chocolate mousse was outstanding! She also did a great job of cleaning up. This is not a knock, but she doesn't stand on ceremony, so if you are looking for very formal service, this isn't it (which fit my style just fine). I definitely recommend her for catering a party, and expect she would be a wonderful teacher for a cooking class.
I loved everything about working with Dianna of Catering reserved! From start to finish she delivered everything she promised, including delicious food! She was prompt, creative, and thorough in her proposal; she worked with me to refine my needs and I was very comfortable with my final decisions; Her pricing was affordable and fair and most importantly she promised there would really be enough food to feed everyone and there was! She promised it would be delivered on time (it was), that her staff would set it all up nicely without my help (he did!) and that it would be hot and delicious (and it was!). Nothing was forgotten; nothing was omitted. The serving utensils were there, the sterno, and the clear containers were perfect for serving the food in. I didn't need china serving dishes for my event, but Dianna does offer that and if my next event needs Catering Reserved's full service, I won't hesitate to use it. (Food plus waitstaff for setup and clean up.) I've never met Dianna in person, and I never tasted her food prior to hiring her for my very important event, but from our first conversation I just knew I could trust her, and I was right. I highly recommended her! Thanks to Catering Reserved, I got to visit with my guests and totally enjoy my "after-the-wedding" party.
I highly recommend Shore is Delicious, Catering by Teresa. I contracted with Teresa to cater an after (Wedding) reception party at my house in Gambrills. Teresa was extremely helpful in helping me decide what menu would be appropriate, providing suggestions and alternatives during the planning process. Teresa was very easy to get a hold of when needed, and responded with the answers to my questions very quickly. A majority of the food that Teresa served to my 65 guests was hand made, and it was absolutely delicious! Teresa's cooking skills and ability to create a balanced menu were impressive. Teresa and her crew were on time, and had the area set-up and ready to go by the time my guests started to arrive after the wedding reception. She went out of her way by providing tasteful table coverings and center pieces, even thought I did not ask for those. The quality of her work was excellent! Aside from the delicious food, the most impressive attribute of Teresa's catering service was their willingness to provide the "Complete Service." Teresa prepared all of the food, delivered it, served it and stayed until the end, making sure that the area was 100% clean and in order before she left. In addition, Teresa brought along a crew of helpers that provided anything that was needed to ensure that my guests had a good time. When researching for caterers, this was tough to find. Most wanted to make the food, put it on the tables and go. Not Teresa. In closing, I highly recommend and without reservation Shore is Delicious, Catering by Teresa for anyone's catered event. The planning, preparation and care taken by Teresa and her crew was fabulous. Tom Doyle
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 used Healthy Catering Co. to host a dinner party for 8 guests after a recommendation from my coworker. I loved loved loved the variety as far as vegetarian dishes. It was a breeze to call in advance and schedule my dinner party. Nasrin was very attentive and helpful about explaining the various foods. My only wish is that I had a big enough stomach to enjoy all the delicious dishes.
Divas Cooking Party catered a graduation brunch at our home and from first contact to the final “show” Iyea was a joy to work with! She helped me plan the menu which she executed to delicious perfection! Thanks Divas!
Creative Visions Cuisine provided some fun, festive food for our Halloween Party last year. Our guests loved the unique presentation and the attention to detail that was incorporated into each dish. The food was delicious, so flavorful, fresh and well-prepared! We were so pleased with our experience and highly recommend Creative Visions for any occasion, celebration or themed event!
I love their catering services, my guests enjoy their appetizers .
Patricia Wright catered a Graduation party for me. She was very accommodating with the menu I wanted and professional from beginning to end. The food was outstanding and all the guests enjoyed it. I would recommend The Wright Caterer for any event and will use her services again!
Justin was friendly and responsive, and was very helpful in creating a wonderful menu for my husband's 40th birthday party at our home. I am vegetarian, so he made sure all the sides were veg-friendly and filling for me, while also being delicious for everyone else. He was communicative during the day of the event, and showed up on time (a little early even!), set everything up, and even surprised us with some delicious red velvet cake shooters, that went along nicely with our cake. I think one of my sons ate four of them! Everyone loved the food and complimented everything--I made sure to tell them all where it came from! I wanted a stress-free party with great food, and Justin made that possible! Thank you for helping to make it a wonderful night for everyone, especially my husband!
Chef Kimmy was very response to working with us even though we were putting together this party from Florida. She was on time and the food was excellent.
Everything I've order so far has been delicious. Started out just ordering dinners and now I'm having meal prep done for the week. Looking forward to this weekend menu.
Doing business with Afro Veg was a very pleasant experience. I ordered the "Jamaica Me Happy" special for my house party and everything was delicious! Surprisingly the portions were large and we had more than enough to go around. All my guests loved the dishes even though they were not all vegan.
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.
