Carmen was Ana amazing caterer to have! She catered my wedding with only three weeks notice and did a beautiful job! She helped decorate, set up a cheese and cracker buffet, and the meal she prepared was phenomenal. If you have her cater your event, you must request her Macaroni and Cheese! There was none of it left after my reception! Thank you so much Carmen! I couldn't have done this reception without your help! I will be forever thankful for you.

Our anniversary dinner prepared by Julian was presented nicely and tasted delicious. It was particularly nice to talk with Julian while he prepared the meal and discover some of his cooking technics. At the end of the evening when Julian departed, the kitchen was left spotless. We are looking forward to using Julian again. Butch & Martha

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.

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.

Chef Roy was very hospitable in responding to my need of delivering home cooked meals to family members who live out of state. Not only was his service outstanding but the menu selection and quality of food as well. This was a first time experience and it won't be the last. Chef Roy has my trust and loyalty as a customer. I would recommend Chef Roy's Creations to anyone. Visit http://souzouchefroycreations.com/ for more info. Thank you Chef and best of luck to you!

OMG! i hired Promiscuous Plates for my wife's birthday and had a 3 course meal. It was awesome! They bought the groceries and the wine. They even bought their own pots,pans and plates! The steak was so tender that i was able to cut it with a butter knife! I don't even really eat vegetables but I ate a salad with shrimp and I also had rice and carrots that were nice and sweet! Cleaned my plate. It was very affordable and she was easy to work with... I will definitely work with this company in the near future!

I hired Aijah for several meals when I was working late and couldn't prepare dinner. She's great! The food was amazing and she was very friendly. Our meal was very well prepared and always done on time. I've also hired her to prepare a full course meal for my wife's surprise party. She has always been 100% reliable for my family and I.

The job was a surprise party for my wife and I did not know what to serve, and I knew that Ernest is a chef, and being that he had more experience in the relationship area than me I asked him to prepare a one year anniversary dinner for me and my wife. To my surprise Ernest delivered, my wife loves the Caribbean culture so Ernest cooked a jerk chicken, rice and peas, cabbage, sweet plantain, and other fixings dinner to perfection. I can't wait to have him cook for my next function.

What an unforgettable day we had last Saturday! My daughter was married with her reception in our back yard. My husband and I had worked with a wedding planner and Liazzo's for nine months planning and tweaking that special day. Jessica and Jeremiah from Liazzo's were always prompt and prepared for each meeting, and extremely patient throughout the process. Not only was the food fantastic (people are still raving about it), but it was also beautifully displayed. Each station was unique and the variety provided something for everyone. I have used Liazzo's many times, and they keep getting better all the time. When it's time to have another wedding (I have 3 daughters:) I will definitely use them again!

As an owner of vacation and corporate rentals I have recommended Stan Gardner for catering to guests during their stay. He works with the guests to create a personal meal or meals during their stay. I have received rave reviews on everything. His meals are tasteful, unique, and affordable. The guests appreciate the health conscience ways he prepares the meals and his presentation is always impeccable. He personalizes the meals for each guest during their vacations from picnic type lunches during the summer to Thanksgiving and Christmas feasts during the holidays. I would highly recommend Mr. Gardner as a personal chef for a small family gathering or a large party.

We heard about Kyle from a friend who worked with him at The Pearl in Laguna Beach. Knowing that Thd Pearl is a world class health retreat we decided that we should talk to him. We immediately knew that Kyle would be the perfect person to welcome into our home and who could help us attain our goals through a new diet regeim. He prepared deliciois and creative food for us and we were able to eat more and loose weight quickly and in a healthy way. Kyle was fun to have around in the kitchen and always cleaned up perfectly. He filled our refrigerator with healthy clean food all labeled and packaged for easy consumption. We miss Kyle and hope that someday he will come back to Laguna Beach !!! Can't say enough about this fine chef and friend who helped us attain our health goals !! Thx Kyle. Rick & Lynn Cirelli.

My experience with Neighborly Cook was great. Our cook arrived on time, was very attentive to my family and respective of my kitchen. He prepared a delicious pesto pasta, sun-dried tomato, and grilled chicken dish, and even customized a bit of the meal for my picky kids! In addition to the main dish, he prepared a simple, healthy and delicious side salad to kick off the meal. After cooking, the cook cleaned up all utensils he used to prepare the meal and was on his way. It was great! Would definitely use this service again.
