Chef Kevin is a miracle worker. He stayed within our budget and produced healthy, delicious food for our high school music department banquet. One of the most accommodating and flexible caterers I've worked with in my 30 years of doing events. Five stars!

Chef Serge was a pleasant person to work with. Very professional, easily customized my brunch menu and was able to deliver great quality food with minimal instructions. Would definitely recommend him to anyone.

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.

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!

Candra is an amazing event planner! Very professional, organized, energetic and best of all passionate. She handles things in a timely fashion and events always go off with out a hitch. From food, decor, activities, and surprises...her events are always fantastic. I have been to several of her events...and each one fantastic! She stands out because she can plan & host a party. Which she does both remarkably well. She can vibe with any crowd from toddlers up to senior citizens. Her passion for the youth makes any child party/event amazing. I've seen her in action and kids just love her!

SO IMPRESSED! Chris Spear of Big Little Bites started by asking me to fill out a short but thoughtful questionnaire so he could get an idea of what I wanted so he could craft a custom dining experience with me. In less than two days, he provided back an incredible list of dishes for me to choose from. He was prompt, polite, and professional. I will hire him for future events.

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.

The overall experience was good with Extravagant Affairs Catering Event Rentals and Decor. The Staff was very professional and punctual and the service and decor and set up was excellent. I wish I could give this vendor an Excellent review, but we were asked to pay for a hot box for the food and our food was cold. All of our guest complained about their food being cold. The beef was tough, the chicken was dry and most of the guest didn't even eat their food. The food was very disappointing and it took away from the excellent job that Shovanna and the rest of her team did with pulling together a really beautiful ceremony and reception.

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.

They were great! Yvonne set up a custom menu for our Halloween event at the office and we couldn't have been happier. The office loved all the Halloween inspired desserts and food. They even took extra time to set up the dishes and make them look perfect with extra decorations. Will definitely be using them again for future events!

Nasrin and her crew were a pleasure to work with! She went the extra mile with a few of our guest’s dietary requirements/food allergies. All of the food was perfectly prepared and ready when my guests were hungry. That was the best food that we ever had with catering company and be that delicious. I recommend to anyone especially for Middle Eastern type of events. Everyone was well fed and pleasantly pleased with the food and service! Wonderful food from wonderful people!

Honestly I don’t even know where to begin because my whole experience with Sandra was more than amazing. I started talking to Sandra six months before my event to begin coordinating. Throughout my communications with her over the past few months she was responsive, creative, highly organized and helped plan the most perfect dinner for my friend’s bachelorette. She worked with me from start to finish to prepare the most amazing menu. She arrived with her two assistants and they were extremely friendly, organized, professional, efficient and the food was utterly amazing. Our group of 7 girls just couldn’t stop raving about the food! Sandra set up a GORGEOUS table scape and printed the most adorable customized menus. everything was just seamless. I don’t have enough good things to say about this experience. It was absolutely amazing and unforgettable. It was something all of us girls will always cherish. Thank you Sandra for the most beautiful night!!!

From start to finish this was a painless and incredibly impressive experience. I host plenty of professional business development or marketing events that are catered and in upscale venues, and CCC was as good, if not better in many respects, than those catering services 3 and 4 times his costs. Will for sure use them again.
