We hosted an open house for 20 people in our new home and Dana did a superb job! Completely customized our menu and every bite was delicious and made from scratch. All of our guests commented how great the food (and presentation) was throughout the entire evening - we’ll definitely use Lily Pad Catering for all of our future in-home catering needs!

I would recommend Keita Hines’s Blessed Occasion to anyone! When working on our contract, she was extremely helpful and precise. She let me know exactly what to expect and what could be done to make my event the best it could be. She was easy to get in touch with and I never felt like I was left in the dark like some caterers I have worked with. She is very trustworthy and had no hidden chargers. She went above and beyond. We had requested her to cater for a Boy Scout Banquet for around 175 people. We had Fried Chicken, Roast Beef, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, and dinner rolls. The fried chicken was seasoned to perfection. The roast beef was so moist. The mashed potatoes were a hit! She even gave us dark and lite gravy. I don’t know what she adds to her green beans and corn to make them amazing, but they were not bland in the least. Everyone wanted seconds of everything! I was so grateful she gave use extra servings because we flew through the food. She even gave use an order of pasta con broccoli for families that were vegetarians! I had over 15 families tell me how delicious all the food was! When we thought the food could not get any better, her desserts were divine. She had a variety of cookies. (My favorite was the chocolate chunk cookies!) The brownies were moist and extra chocolaty. She even customized her shortbread/sugar cookies with blue and gold sprinkles (the Boy Scout colors!). For refreshments, she brought tea, pink lemonade, and BLUE raspberry cool aid. We appreciated how she took into consideration our event and added little touches like that. Keita and her family were on time to set up, which is very important to us. They were very nice and personable. They set up the food in a neat and organized way. It looked beautiful. Keita made sure I was familiar with the food set up and walked me through everything before we served our guests. I was over the top impressed and would recommend her to anyone needing catering, whether it is for a large or small group of people. I loved working with her and would definitely ask her to cater future events!

I hired Heavy Smoke to cater my wedding. What an amazing dinner. We had heard about the food and went to a BBQ cookoff to try some of the things they make to see if it was something we would like to pursue at the wedding. My mouth didn't know what hit it. We chose the brisket and pulled chicken and what a crowd pleaser this was. We had a picnic style wedding and Heavy Smoke not only cooked the meat, but they made their famous baked beans, salad, and a wonderful special recipe cole slaw. Minus the "I do's", this was honestly the highlight of the wedding. I spent more time answering questions about where I found them than I did about the wedding. :) I was very happy that everyone had such a wonderful BBQ dinner, and was very impressed with the way the guys handled the catering side of things. It was display that was very well put together, and certainly worthy of any wedding. Not a soul went home hungry. Great stuff and great guys. We are thinking about a redo very soon. Thank Heavy Smoke!!!

Vivian is the BEST! I hired her to prepare a surprise birthday dinner for my girlfriend. Every aspect of the evening was world class, from set-up and serving to our mouth watering 4-course meal. If you are looking for great food, and an awesome experience, I highly recommend Vivian for your catering needs. Best personal chef hands down!

They have catered for a family gathering recently, after trying the food truck at my work. Needless to say, they thought of ALL the little things that I didn't, and even came in clutch when I ran out of drinks at no added cost! Very responsive to emails, explained everything well, were more than willing to work with my budget! I will absolutely have them out again!

I have utilized Francesco's for Catering now going on two years and might be the best caterer I've ever used. The food is outstanding, service is top notch always on time always & attention to details. In fact I like the catering enough I try to go there and eat in the restaurant on my free time when I can. Definitely recommend this hidden gem!

Natina was prompt, well planned as well as full of ideas that we had not even thought of during our initial consultation. When it came to our ideas, Natina was very patient and she listened to all of our requests and executed them all to our liking. The food was amazing! It was far beyond our expectations. Noirblanc is my #1 choice for any future events. Thanks Again!

By choice we assembled the salads for the luncheon, but Bistro 517 did all the prep work. There were plenty of ingredients to assemble the salads. We could have used more dressing and ice tea. The wrapped asparagus was delicious, but it would have been nice to have 2 pp instead of one. The lemon mousse cake was outstanding and beautiful. Many of the guests took business cards.
