On a wedding day where many things went wrong , Carmen was the definite right!! The food she suggested , prepared and served was creative , flavorful and within budget. The shrimp cocktail appatizer was was devine but the main dish of mouth watering chicken stole the show. Creative yet simple spices kept this dish tame enough for everyone but exploding with flavor. After going over the menu and tasting the samples we decided to have her design and create our wedding cake. As with everything else it was PERFECT. 4 tier elegant yet sexy cake that everyone enjoyed!! I would recommend Carmen to anyone I know needing a caterer, especially someone like myself that was completely lost in what to do. She was friendly ,helpful , professional and the 2nd best choice I made that day , first being marrying my wife :o)

This was our first time using Thumbtack and the first time we experienced Chef Tyler and his team’s capabilities, and we highly recommend them. Chef Tyler prepared spectacular dishes for a company holiday party in our home. Our guests are still raving about the food, which included several delicious appetizers, a fabulous steak entree, lots of side dishes, and a decadent chocolate lava cake. This event exceeded our expectations, and we definitely recommend hiring Chef Tyler versus going to a crowded, noisy restaurant or having a caterer drop-off pre-made dishes. Can’t wait until next year’s party and Chef Tyler’s next meal!

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!!

Jim is a superb caterer. He catered a convention for children with 40 people in attendance, which were mostly adults. It was held in North Charlotte at the Drury Inn and Suites. He kept in touch with me throughout the entire process and delivered the most delicious food my group has ever tasted.He arrived on time and the setup at the event was swift as he obviously knew what he was doing. He even included items I had not considered. His pricing is excellent and the serving size was extremely generous. I had guests inquire about the caterer due to the excellent food that they had eaten. We had chicken and everyone commented on how perfectly prepared it was.I highly recommend his services and I would not hesitate to use him again when the need arises.

my woman's group and I loved the Cajun Themed Brunch he prepared for us. We had a variety of food but the shrimp and grits were awesome. The crab cakes with the mango chutney were to die for. Overall his service delivery & presentation were super. Thanks for making our day with those patron cocktails.

Jessica whipped up a dinner for 10 at our place. The appetizers and dinner were fantastic. Jessica was a bundle of energy and on the go from the time she arrived until the time she left. Not only was she our chef, but server and cleaned up as well. We did 3 appetizers; shrimp cocktail, stuffed mushrooms and caprese salads. It was probably too much for 10 people but each one of them was terrific. Caesar salad proceeded our dinner of filet mignon with mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach. Your guests will love the food.

I ordered chili for a fundraiser. Yolanda was easy to work with and delivered exactly as promised. (We worked with another caterer who did not.) I will definitely use her services again.

Great overall experience, had a neighborhood get together with about 20 people, Top Hat provided bartending and catering services. Food was excellent, they provided all mixers, fruit, plates cups etc so took a lot off of our plate to prepare for the event. very reasonable prices. They went out of their way to make our guests feel comfortable and well cared for.

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.

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.

Total Events made our wedding everything we dreamed it would be. Trisha is thorough and has an amazing attention to detail. She thinks of everything, which made my job as the bride a breeze! She really listened to what we wanted and made our day exactly how we had envisioned it. More than that, she cared about us as a couple and made us feel so special. Would recommend Total Events to anyone for their big day!
