Fantastic! We had a small, casual wedding for about 45 guests and Carmen and her team did an excellent job. We were a bit untraditional having a cocktail hour prior to the ceremony and then a buffet dinner reception, however with this itinerary, my husband and I were able to enjoy the tasty appetizers with our guests and everyone could relax before the vows. The buffalo chicken pastry puffs were amazing! Carmen had a great team who she managed very well to ensure everything was ready exactly when it should be. The ladies on her team were so friendly and outgoing who kept things moving and food flowing constantly. If you are looking for good food, great service, value, and a relaxed (not uptight) team that will have fun with your guests then Carmen is your person.

I highly recommend Chef Tyler! We were hosting a work dinner and I decided at the last minute that I wanted more than just a caterer- I wanted to make it a special experience for everyone!! Special it was- it was a fabulous experience!! We called Chef Tyler on Saturday afternoon for a Monday evening event and he came through like a champ. Delicious appetizer tidbits including: grilled figs wrapped in prosciutto, several bruschettae (That’s plural for Bruschetta), charred okra, and grilled shrimp – all with local seasonal ingredients. These were both passed and serve on the buffet table. Then an amazing dinner buffet with Barbecued Chicken, cooked Sous Vide then seared on the grill; mango corn salsa (Yum!), summer veggie pasta salad, heirloom tomatoes and other scrumptious sides. Followed by fresh peach shortcake that was to die for. We raved, the guests raved, and you would have too if you’d been here. Now, we are looking for a new excuse to have him and his team back again. I highly recommend him!

Michelle's service and response time has been outstanding!! She has worked with me and my budget and has been able to offer excellent suggestions as well as been willing to facilitate my needs with a limited budget and time constraints!! I will write another review after the actual event but as of right now, hands down, she is amazing. After talking to several other caterers, I knew she was the one... encompassing excellent customer service, flexibility, creativity and willingness to help in a way that the other caterers were not. Thank you Michelle!!

Chef Dave prepared Christmas Dinner for my family of six. He prepared 2 meats, 3 sides, an additional entree served with white rice, an appetizer and a dessert. Everything was delicious! The meats were well seasoned, juicy and tender. The sides were flavorful. The dessert was a perfect to wonderful meal. There was so much food that I was able to send my brother home with leftovers, freeze enough food for dinner on New Years Day and have leftovers to eat after Christmas. Chef Dave was prompt, friendly and professional. My family and I will be hiring him again in the future.

Yolanda was the truly professional caterer we had hoped to find when we began our search. We had some unusual requests and Yolando didn't blink. She said, "sure, no problem." When she arrived, she set up a lovely buffet! The food was wonderful and beautifully presented. I hope I get the opportunity to recommend Yolanda to others.

We had a phenomenal experience working with Top Hat and Liane. Liane and her staff showed up early to prepare giving us a lot of comfort. The food was phenomenal, as everyone loved the meal. We were able to customize the menu to our liking. The service with the bartender/server and chef were incredible. All in all, the event experience with Top Hat exceeded our expectations and we will most certainly use Liane and team again in the future. She took all the stress out of planning our first party.

I had The Cook Nook cater a private dinner for two. The food was delicious, and the service was impeccable. Catherine prepared a steak dinner and honestly it was the best steak I’ve ever eaten and I’m a regular at Morton’s and Capital Grill. The appetizers, sides, and main dish were all delicious. It was a beautiful meal and a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend Catherine for a fantastic experience that your guests will thoroughly enjoy! Tamra R.

Oh my....the FOOD! Epps Bistro has provided my family with several weeks of food and Executive Chef, Terique Epps, cooked for a dinner party I hosted. Everyone raved about the food! He was extremely personable, professional and not only is he an excellent chef but he also cleaned up my kitchen (better than I would've) once he was done. I would recommend Epps Bistro to anyone!

I used Divine Cultural Cuisine for a private dinner party for 4. The Chef showed up on time with all the equipment. He was very careful and precise in cleaning his work area before and AFTER dinner. The party started at 7 pm and he showed up around 615pm to start prep work. Our menu was amazing and I am still full while typing this review. It consisted of Savannah calamari and crab stuffed shrimp as an appetizer. The portions were huge. We literally had to tell him to take the plate from us or we wouldn't have been able to eat the entree or dessert. I have to add, he applied some "orange sauce" to the shrimp that I literally would drink a bucket of. Chef Reeves is a saucier by trade so he knows what he is doing. Next, we were served a mixed green salad with a warm raspberry hazelnut dressing which was divine. Our main course was a surf and turf menu of orange soy glazed salmon and NY strip with mixed veggies and potato cakes. I don't know where to start. The steak was cooked perfectly. Salmon was cooked so well that I am troubled that I may never be able to cook salmon in my household again. And this orange soy glaze. He wouldn't tell us the ingredients but we tried to bribe him an undisclosed amount of money which he politely refused. I personally like grits so he made a side dish of his grits. They were the best grits I have ever tasted in my life and I am born and raised in the South. Just a wonderful meal from this point that was about to blow our minds. For dessert, might I add I don't even remember when he prepared it as we were stuffing our faces, creme brulee cheesecake with a white chocolate sauce and red velvet cake shooters with fresh fruit. The entire meal was better than I ever expected. My only regret is that we didn't know Chef Reeves and Divine Cultural Cuisine when we were getting married as we surely would have had him cater for us. We will be reaching out to him. We will be using him in the future and I truly believe if you have read all of this review up to this point, you will use him too.

I am SO glad I chose to hire Joya to be the private chef at my event. She cooked 5 meals for us + snacks all vegan. Not everyone at the event was vegan but everyone found ALL the meals delicious which was amazing. She was one time and on schedule for everything, so sweet, put a lot of love into her food/work and I truly hope to work with her again in the future. If you are thinking about hiring Joya definitely do it! You will not regret it.
