Carmen and her staff were outstanding! Everyone at the wedding complemented the food and the appearance of the food! She offered us rentals for tablecloths and her crystal trees to! Unlike most caterers, she was able to offer this to me! She helped so much with everything anything she could!

This was a Celebration of Life reception in honor of my Dad. The event was held at a community center with a full kitchen and my Mom and I decided that a Personal Chef would be more Special than a normal caterer. And more special it was, as Chef Tyler and his team presented an amazing spread that everyone loved. A dozen tidbits and finger foods that took care of teenagers, younger kids, adults of all ages and every food need from Gluten Free to Nut Free. Simple items like Mini Tortilla Pizzas and Baked Chicken Nuggets combined with more sophisticated dishes like Tuna Tartare and Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus received raves from all. The staff handled the initial surge really well and kept plenty of food refreshed for the full three hours. Only an hour to set up and prepare and only an hour to clean-up was no problem for the well- organized crew. Chef Tyler took the time to clearly understand our needs and wishes, and was extremely accommodating and flexible along the way. All in all a superb performance and I would highly recommend Chef Tyler for any similar event.

Chef Julian was easy to work with, delivered a delightful gourmet meal and an awesome experience for our party of 8. He was prompt, brought everything he needed to our home to cook, serve and clean up. His easy-going, personable manner ensured a fun, interactive evening. While not inexpensive, this special evening was a superb birthday experience!

We needed catering of lunch and dinner for at least 30 days to possibly 1 year, 7 days every week for approximately 100 people with emphasis on vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and special diets. Many caterers with great reviews were easy to dismiss once they were interviewed. Carolina catering delivered what they promised: delicious food at a reasonable price with excellent personal service and a huge selection - even for those special dietary needs. I have used caterers throughout the country to take on this monumental task and no one has delivered the quality, variety, and scrumptious food Carolina Gourmet Catering has. I cannot thank them enough. And, by the way, we are 3 weeks into our project and continue to be very happy with the results. The only problem we have had was running out of food because people have been going back for second and third helpings because the food is so good! Make sure you prepare for this if it's buffet style.

We were pleasantly surprised at the level of service we received on such last minute notice. I would highly recommend A Taste of Soul for any group looking for inexpensive but delicious options. Thank you so much for supplying the food for our corporate meeting!

Roosterdoodles catered my parents 50th wedding Anniversary and I can't even find good enough words to describe how great the entire experience was to have worked with them. They were kind and professional from the moment I met with them all the way up until they finished my event. The food they prepared was over the moon delicious and presented with so much care and personal touches. My guests kept asking who the caterer was. After this whole experience they feel like family to me and I will use them for every special event I have!!!! A huge THANK YOU and a round of applause to the lovely Donato's!!!!!!!��

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.

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 Catherine cater a birthday brunch for me and a couple girlfriends and it was amazing! Not only is she very personable, she made sweet potato biscuits that I could have eaten 100 of! I am hiring her again to help with a bridal shower and would recommend her without hesitation for any small event you may have. The Cook Nook has delicious food and is delightful to work with!

I have been looking for a Caterer for my daughter's wedding. I knew she wanted a Down-Home Southern BBQ. I began emailing different caterers. Matthew was so prompt in responding to me. He was extremely patient, as this is my first time planning a wedding. Matthew took the time to answer every single question I had. And Logan was a joy to deal with on the phone. I did find other Caterers that may have cost a little less, but I believe in providing excellent customer service and these two gentlemen have done just that!!! Thank you Matthew and Logan for making this an easy choice!! I so look forward to meeting you in the Spring!!!
