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.

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.
Jackie was breathtaking. She was extremely professional and truly an amazing chef. The menu that I ordered was lump crab cakes with hollandaise sauce, quinoa with cranberry and heirloom tomatoes and sauteed asparagus with garlic sauce and the taste was out of this world. She topped the dinner off with an apple tarte tartin. Now, I usually eat at French restaurants all over the world because I'm a traveler but this experience I had with Jackie made me feel like I was in Paris at a French Bistro. I will hire her again for my daughter's graduation party this Summer and I can't wait. I am doing a Parisian theme party as my daughter is traveling abroad to France this summer. I have only great things to say about Jackie from start to finish
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.
It was my Son's graduation party, she organised the food for +80 people. She and her waiters were fantastic! The food became the conversation piece of the day. ABSOLUTELY SUPERB.
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.
Mary and her crew did a fantastic job catering our wedding luncheon in northern Virginia. The food and service were terrific.
As a single male who can't cook and has no time to do so properly, my diet has suffered due to years of compromising meals like pizza and takeout Chinese, etc. Therefore I cannot tell you how happy I am about Scott and the service he provides. I save money over eating out and delivery and the food Scott makes is immeasurably better, healthier and prepared by an obviously talented chef. The food is amazing; the ingredients are fresh and clearly chosen with care; Scott is charming and delivers it to you direct. It's pretty great and highly recommended.
Healthy Catering Company catered food to our new year party for about 50 people. The experience was fantastic! Food was so fresh and delicious absolutely loved it.
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.
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....
The first thing you should know is that attention to detail is Giovanni's specialty. Everything from the inviting music, to the immaculate place settings, to the incredible food, were set up to create the perfect atmosphere for conversation before, during and after dinner. And as organized as everything is, we still felt at home and relaxed at our EatWithMe event. Oh, and dinner?? Spectacular! The courses were beautifully plated, with flavors that are unique but still approachable and able to please both the developed and newbie foodie. You can tell Chef Gio loves his craft not only through conversation; his food will tell you as well! Would absolutely recommend Chef Gio's services!
I had the opportunity to use TJ's catering services for my Farewell reception. I only gave them a general idea of what I want, and their took care of the rest. I was very impressed with the quality of their work, professionalism and punctuality. The foods were delicious, well presented and clean. My guests really appreciated the service. As a happy customer, I requested TJ's catering services again for my first daughter's graduation party next month...looking forward for another magnificent reception. I recommend you TJ's catering services. Their prices are also reasonable. LC!
I’ve known Nikki for a couple years now and her food has been fantastic. She’s actually catering my wedding and I can’t wait.
K&A Catering staff was very professional. The food was awesome and the service was great. Thanks to making my event a huge success.
From the very first time I've placed an order for myself and my family, the food has always beem fantastic. The portion sizes are great and you get way more bang for your buck. I'll continue to come back to Sweet Creations and Catering for more food!
I am so glad that I got Afro-Veg to cater an event I was having. Mari, the chef promptly communicated with me about the the menu and pricing. I order some items off of the Indian cuisine section, and the Chana Masala and Samosas were so, so good. Mari also dropped the food off at my house and helped me take them to the table. Awesome food, awesome service, 100% recommend.
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.
