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.

Hired 24 Blackbirds Cafe and Market for our wedding day and they were simply amazing!!! The owner handles everything for you and makes it completely worry free on your special day. Everything was provided such as: plates, silverware, glassware, set up and break down. The most special moment for us is when they even offered to cut and serve our wedding cake to the guest. This is not apart of their services (I don't believe) but the fact that they offered was amazing. The food was amazing as well. From the food tasting in the beginning (she creates a cute little date set up) to the arrival of hot food at our reception. They served nice portion sizes to the guest (in the buffet line) and I have yet to hear of anyone who did not like the food (Chicken Marsala, Herb roasted veggies and Herb roasted potatoes, salad, and dinner rolls). I can't thank the staff enough for a great experience. It is already nerve wrecking the day of the wedding, worrying about the food was not one of our concerns and that was great. If I ever have another event that I need caterer 24 Blackbirds Cafe and Market will be getting our business!!!

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!

Maggie was an incredible caterer to work with! I'm so glad she reached out to me. My husband and I are vegan, so it was important to us to find a caterer that could create tasty, plant-based food for our wedding. Maggie was able to craft a menu with dishes from around the world and we received a ton of compliments during dinner from our guests on the food. From grandparents, to fellow vegans, the food was a hit! She and her team exceeded my expectations and helped make our wedding a night to remember :) Thank you Chef Maggie!

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.

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.

ERS (Joyce Lanier) catered by recent wedding, 02/01/14 at Harvest Baptist Church, Burlington, NC. The food was absolutely delicious and the presentation was delightful. I have received so many compliments on the reception. One of my guest has recommened ERS to her friend for her daughters wedding. Joyce and her staff are professional and friendly. She will make the food the BEST part of your event. She is easy to talk to and her main goal is to please! She goes beyond to make sure your expections are meet. She also made my wedding cake which was beautiful and absolutely delicious. My husband thought it was the best cake! Do YOURSELF a favor and call Joyce. You can leave it to her and not worry, it will be wonderful.
