Zacki prepared a wonderful ancient Mediterranean meal for our intimate private wedding party. Zacki is very knowledgeable about ancient foods which brought unique flavors to the dishes she lovingly prepares. Every guest at the party enjoyed the appetizers, salad, two great entrees and a healthy and tasty fresh fruit pastry for dessert. The food was fresh and delicious and Zacki and her assistant Kathryn were a joy.

Camille catered my wedding vow renewal last September and we wanted to do something different than a normal dinner. My theme was "The Twenties" and she came up with a 7 course tasting menu based on our ethnic backgrounds. Her and her crew did an excellent job. Everyone was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the food. Not to mention the food was AMAZING! It was plated beautifully and everyone enjoyed it! We recommend her to all of our friends!

Lewis was fantastic for our wedding! The food was delicious, the service was wonderful, and He and his wife were both a joy to work with. They were friendly, prompt, and personable. They surpassed my expectations and helped make our special day a wonderful experience for us and our guests. We will certainly be keeping them in mind for any events we might host in the future!

Chris and Joe catered our daughter's wedding and it was delicious! We received so many compliments on the food. One guest even said it was the best wedding food he had ever had! Great job and easy to work with! We had a cake issue and they were even thoughtful enough to handle that while we were at the wedding. Very accommodating!

A few years ago Damon catered our wedding in Chapel Hill. We had an initial planning meeting plus several phone calls. He was always available or very prompt in returning my calls, which was very important, since we had only 3 months to plan. He was very professional and gave us exactly what we wanted! His fees were very reasonable and the food was delicious with a beautiful presentation. I have recommended Damon to my friends for other events and will use him again for an event that needs to be catered!

I found Chrisabethella Catering through Thumbtack. Never having heard of the company before, I wasn't 100% sure, but after speaking with Courtney and seeing the level of professionalism and knowledge she exhibited, I chose Chrisabethella Catering to cater my wedding. Catering involved into "Catering *and* Event Rentals," once Courtney explained her capabilities to also handle our event rentals. She was extremely flexible in the items I needed (our primary color was a very tricky shade of dark purple-blue), and was always patient with me as we went through the process of coordinating the right items. We had many late-in-the-game changes to our wedding, and through it all, Courtney was patient, responsive, and took the time to consult with me and make sure all of my questions were answered -- no matter how small or trivial they seemed. The fact that Courtney acted as a trusted advisor in my wedding planning process was amazing -- she went above and beyond to meet strict budgetary requirements, yet provided her professional opinion on if cutting X or Y would result in a lower quality service, or hinder the guest experience. As someone who did most of the planning on my own and who isn't too wedding-savvy, this type of assistance was invaluable. Did I mention that all of our guests loved the food, Courtney's team did a great job delivering everything on-time, and she even followed up with me that day to make sure we had everything we needed? I am so glad to have had such a wonderful caterer/rentals vendor who cared as much about staying within budget and providing guests with a quality experience as I did! From catering, to event rentals, to the cake, and consultation -- Chrisabethella Catering definitely hit the mark!

Teresa has organized and planned the menu and rental needs for a 32 person wedding reception. She did an incredible job of listening to our vision and coming up with beautiful and creative ideas on how to execute that vision. She has great connections and knowledge of rental needs, which took a HUGE stress off my plate. She has been patient, gracious and generous with her time. She has incredible energy and knowledge and has made a potentially stressful event an enjoyable and fun experience. HIGHLY recommended!!!! She's amazing!

Taste catering catered my daughter's 13th birthday party. She was professional, on time and most importantly the food she cooked was amazing. My daughter is a vegetarian and she wanted a movie themed party. Taste catering met her wants from the decorations all the way to the tuxedo dressed gourmet veggie dogs and assortment of chocolate drizzled popcorn. All the teens were satisfied and happy. I will definitely use Taste Catering again and highly recommend it to all my friends.

Elegant Events is a life saver! The caterer of my wedding canceled at the last minute. A friend told me about Chef Lynn Suitt. I contacted her and she did not hesitate. We started right away. The service and the food were excellent!

Carlos and Miguel were a pleasure to work with and made the whole process stress-free. We looked at multiple caterers before our wedding, and they offered not only the best price but the best service, as well. We were so grateful for how smoothly things went and how delicious the food was- everyone commented on it! I highly recommend Chinelos for anyone looking for a caterer for a wedding or any other event.

I recommend highly Maggie and Comfort Cuisine. She has helped me with dinners for business associates and all kinds of family gatherings including milestone birthdays, engagement parties, and most recently a welcome party before my daughter's wedding. It is cheaper and better than going to a restaurant. All I have to do is get the house clean and decide on a menu, and Maggie takes over. No worries. The food is delicious and her flower arrangements are incredible. Her helpers are efficient and so very nice to work with. For easy, wonderful, at home catered dinners and parties, there is no one better than Maggie and Comfort Cuisine!!

We hired Drew Schenck to cater our wedding reception. From the first meeting to the reception clean-up, Drew was an absolute privilege to work with. Not only did he create a delicious custom menu for us, he took the worry and stress out of all the decision making. Drew and his staff went far beyond our expectations with their level of service, quality, and professionalism. We recommend Drew to anyone looking for catering needs and we look forward to working with him again in the future.

Donna was my favorite vendor to work with in my wedding planning process. From the first time I met her, she was both kind and went above and beyond to provide the best catering possible within my budget. I had no worries at my reception, because her and the 9 Lyvz team were excellent, professional, and even helped me pass out the cake and champagne toasts. I consider Donna a friend and brag to all my friends about how great she was.

My wedding was truly a magical weekend at Mountain Farm Lavender Farm in Celo, NC. Elizabeth catered my Friday evening casual outdoor rehearsal dinner in a true farm to table fashion. She offered delicious creations from her locally grown organic produce and we loved it! We even got to pick our own flowers from her gardens. She has a true gift for taking the finest quality local ingredients and creating a divine feast to please a wide variety of palates. We highly recommend Elizabeth!

Charlene asked that I place a review on her Thumbtack – where do I begin. I have worked with Char’s Catering for several of my events. My first encounter was a wedding in 2012. I was allowed to join the bride and groom for their taste testing and the food was outstanding. Nothing was too salty or over/under cooked. We had baked tilapia – delicious. Our next encounter was for a retirement celebration in Reidsville in 2013. Yes she travels. Again the food was absolutely delicious and her staff was awesome as well. I remember the salad being the bomb! I love salads and it just stood out. I’m not sure if it was the dressing or the freshness of the salad itself. Then she catered for a fund raising event in October 2015 for me. The food was incredible, even a guest caterer asked who she was. Her staff were efficient and very helpful. Our most recent taste testing was in April 2016 for an upcoming event in October. Boy, the food was once again outstanding and prepared differently. She also offered desserts. Our client had a field day with the desserts. She has a glowing personality and is very personable and professional. She is organized and timely which is a must in this industry. She is neat, clean and works hard to please her clients. I’ve seen her in action and been a client of hers. When selecting a caterer, I think about what event I’m doing and if that caterer can meet the theme of the event and prepare & present good tasting food for the guests. Char’s catering can do this, she meets the clients requests. She is my go to caterer. She comes highly recommended.

WONDERFUL TO WORK WITH! Karen and her staff from Visions are great. So much was included for our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception the next day. The menu and price was better than we found anywhere else, especially linens, all the dishes and servers. The food was tasty and buffet setup matched our event colors. We will recommend them to all our friends!!!
