I am so thankful for Chef Kev! He was fabulous. He was very responsive. He took care of everything for us, decorations, serving ware, set up and clean up. I was able to relax and enjoy the surprise party for my mother. I had no worries. He created a great menu for 40 people. BBQ salmon bites, honey ginger broiled black tiger shrimp, red pepper jumbo lump crab salad on puff pastry cups, are just a few of the items he prepared along with great selection of beer and wine. Everything was delicious. Kevin was warm and friendly. He was very response and worked with me... when the guest of honor was hospitalized and we weren't sure if the party would take place. I could not of been more pleased Kevin was very cooperative and compassionate and communicated well during this difficult time. The quest of honor made it and it was a success! I highly recommend Chef Kev!

We had an amazing experience with Chef Diane. We had a dinner party for 8 people. Chef Diane worked with us to design the menu including appetizers, salad, entrée and dessert. Each dish she made was absolutely delicious! She was on time, extremely professional, and we and our guests loved the food! We would highly recommend her and definitely plan on using her again!

Eleven Courses Catering

Eleven Courses was extremely easy to work with -- every member of the team was comfortable communicating via email or phone, and replied to our questions and concerns in a timely manner. They let us do a free tasting before booking, which was great and helped inform our final menu decisions. Both the Chef and the Day-of-Event Coordinator joined us on the walk-through 6 weeks prior to our event. This was extremely helpful for us because we did not have a clear vision for what the set-up would look like. All of the guests really enjoyed the food, and the mashed potato bar was a big hit! Clean-up went smoothly, and the team was able to finish in the one-hour window given to them (or the venue would have charged us for the extra time). One word of caution would be to carefully consider your *estimated* guest headcount before signing the contract. We were only able to reduce our final headcount (which we provided 30 days before the event) by 10%, so we ended up paying for a few extra meals. However, this does seem to be industry standard and not necessarily exclusive of Eleven Courses -- we just wish it was a little more obvious to us when we signed the contract and that perhaps we had more guidance on how to arrive at our estimated headcount. All said and done, we felt we got a great bang for the buck and would recommend Eleven Courses to our friends and family.

We were very happy with the responsiveness from Chefs 2 Go Catering. We decided to cater an event at the last minute and they were very helpful with the menu planning and a price that was acceptable. They arrived early and my staff commented on how professionally they performed the setup. It was clear that the food was not packaged but had been prepared from scratch. We would use them again.

Chef Chris Spear is in one word, amazing. If I didn't limit myself to one word, I'd also add in: incredible, talented, entertaining, knowledgeable, friendly, intelligent, thoughtful, creative, and brilliant. My wife and I just had our third son a month prior, and it was her birthday and we were not able to go out and celebrate due to the wonderful chaos of having a new little one tethered to mom. Chris was able to bring more than just the restaurant experience to us with this incredible service he provides. We learned new cooking techniques, flavor combinations, recipes that are easy for weekly meal making with little-to-no time, and more. As advertised, Chris brought everything: the ingredients, the dishes, the serving ware, the napkins and place settings; EVERYTHING. And then he took it all home with him. Chris spent almost a solid 5 hours with us and never made us feel rushed or hurried throughout the whole experience. He explained all his dishes, discussed the ingredients with us, gave us his perspective and thoughts on the dish, all while giving us stories about his own personal life and family and how he got to where he is today. He clearly loves what he does and it shows through on the food. My wife and I cannot wait to remake the dishes, and have already started looking at new cookware that Chris recommended. Chris even gave us links and recommendations for recipes that were not part of the meal experience we had signed up for. Chris clearly cares about the food and experience first, which is beyond refreshing and hopefully what helps set him above other chefs. We have told both of our entire families and friends about this experience and could not recommend Chris more. I hope people believe us and take the opportunity to have a similarly amazing experience with Chris. Ours was truly a great experience, and for that, the least we can do is say THANK YOU to Chef Chris!

A cooking class for 5 guys can't be the easiest task for a chef. But Jackie did a marvelous job. The "class" was very well organized and, above all, it was great fun for all participants.

Columbia Chef is my go-to catering company. I use them for everything from a 10 person meeting, to a 150 person luncheon or dinner. They are always helpful, prompt and friendly. They respond quickly to requests for information, which helps me make informed decisions about my menu so that I can get on to the other parts of planning the event. Columbia Chef Catering is part of my event planning team.

Working with Anna was a pleasure! She adjusted to my dietary requests with true professionalism and checked in with me regularly before my event. The food was delicious! Perfectly seasoned and fulfilled all of my requests for the event. Her presentation was beautiful. She was punctual and true to her word at every stage. I would hire her again in a second!
