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 and his sous chef did a fantastic job preparing s three course dinner for an 80th birthday celebration for my mother-in-law. Our guests ranged in age from 4-86 and Chef Serge did a terrific job in helping us craft a menu that was pleasing to the wide range of palates present. He also brought plates and silverware for an additional fee which made everything so much simpler for us. The food was delicious. We had both fish and chicken available and both were cooked beautifully with the right amount of seasoning. He surprised us with an amuse bouche that left all of us looking forward to the rest of the meal. Chef Serge incorporated fresh seasonal ingredients into our meal. It was a blistering hot day so we all appreciated his use of summer fruit and vegetables. The ratatouille--was fabulous! We were particularly impressed by Chef Serge's friendly demeanor and how patient and engaged he was with the children. The kids really enjoyed watching the meal being prepared and had lots of questions to ask. Chef Serge and his souse chef answered them all and kept the children engaged. In the words of my nephew, "He's a great Chef!" We are so happy that we hired Chef Serge and Pure Kitchen Culinary Concept. We were able to relax and thoroughly enjoy ourselves and we hope to do it again soon.

Hire them now!! I can not even describe how perfect our experience with Maribel and her team! First off, Maribel and Noel were perfect right from the beginning. When I was planning I was having a hard time hearing back from vendors, but Maribel emailed at a quick pace and even gave me a personalized quote right from the beginning! At the tasting they not only provided an amazing experience with PERFECT food, they also wanted to get to know us better and told us about them. It was like having an amazing lunch with friends. They provided a TON of stuff for free or at the best cost around. We told them our colors and they ran with it. Communication with them was always quick and easy which is a blessing to a bride! Now at the wedding they made the space absolutely beautiful. I didn't tell them anything but colors and they brought so many decorations and made the space better than what I would have imagined and I didn't have to think twice about it! Since getting back we have been talking about our wedding with people and the first thing people talk about was the food. It was INCREDIBLE! Every person I've talked to actually got seconds at our wedding and the kids had a personalized kids meal! They also made sure we were served first and we had the food from the cocktail hour they saved from us, a beautiful salad, and our dinner! They made sure that we got to eat the food we paid for! We ate the left overs the next day and it was just s amazing! The team of server that they had with them were so professional and amazing. We are friends with people in the hotel banquet business, even my husband is a server, and we were all blown away by the staff. We also had a different business do our dessert and was going to charge us a cutting fee, but Maribel and her team cut our pies for free and even served them to our guest without anyone asking! Maribel and Noel are extremely kind people who are professional, excellent, and amazing people. Their team is quick and professional. We even got an email from our venue about how incredible they are! DO yourself a favor and contact them now, and you are ensured a delicious meal from incredible, professional people! Thank you Top of the City!!

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 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.

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.

Scott is fantastic and continually goes above and beyond. We planned our 25 person wedding weekend entirely from out of town, and couldn't have done it without Scott. From our first emails and Skype conversations, Scott made us feel heard and cared for -- something we definitely did not feel from the other four chefs we met with. He provided clear menu options and helped tailor the perfect selections, including accommodating our halal and vegetarian guests. Months later, our guests are still raving about the meal Scott prepared and entire experience he delivered. Beyond catering the evening, Scott and his team helped us evaluate the venue, find and acquire the linens & place settings, pick out & deliver flowers, and purchase food for the rest of the weekend. We highly recommend Scott as both a chef and as a trusted advisor with a big heart.

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.

Not enough good things to say about Iyea! We hired her for our cooking needs over a period of 5 days. Eight of us flew into Baltimore for a convention and rented a house. She was very flexible and responsive throughout the process. She came early in the morning to prepare breakfast. While we ate breakfast she prepared our lunches to-go, then returned again to prepare dinner. One of the nights we had a spontaneous party of 40, and she went to Costco and handled it like a champ! She did all our shopping and majority of the clean-up as well. Her prices are incredible reasonable and her food was delicious, she has the home cooked family feel in her cooking. Thank you Iyea for feeding our souls :)

Everything about our experience with Sandra and her staff was superb. We had a 50th wedding anniversary buffet dinner with a Hawaiian theme for 26 family and friends. Her creativity, responsiveness and attention to detail was evident in all phases of the day and evening. Our guests raved about the menu and the ladies who prepared and served the meal. When they left everything was cleaned up superbly. We highly recommend Creative Visions !

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.

I had the pleasure of attending a baby shower where this company catered the event, and from start to finish everything was so delicious. I have personally never had vegan food, and didn't know that there was so many options to choose from. I enjoyed the professionalism and the fact that the owner was present to answer any questions, and to explain what went into all the dishes on display. I just had to get her information so that she could come to one of my event and bless my company with some delicious healthy options.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
