Carmen and her team are some of the hardest working people I have had the honor to see in action. We chose An Affair to Remember to cater our daughter's wedding in Morganton because she is down-to-earth and seemed very service-oriented. If there is something we need at weddings is service. Carmen's team exceeded our expectations. For the sake of simplicity I asked Carmen to prepare a buffet. Everyone said the food was delicious. As the mother of the bride I had no appetite (except for champagne). All the food was devoured. I feel I did not take advantage Carmen's full abilities by not asking for passed appetizers or food stations. She arrived with her team around noon and stayed until 11pm to wash all our rented dishes and clean up. By the time she left our kitchen was spotless. Bravo, Carmen. The only thing I would add for someone who has never had a caterer: buy your own ice. It was an oversight on my part and assumed caterers brought it. Thankfully I had a willing guest happy to run out for it. Another thing: We had a cheesecake wedding cake and I was worried about cutting it. Carmen stepped in and said she would cut it and set out the coffee service at the same time. She helped make our wedding wonderful.

Chef Tyler hasn't catered for our event as yet however what I can say that to date he has been so quick to respond and came up with an amazing menu to fit out budget. We simply can't wait until our event. Will do another review once that has been held but I can only imagine it will be superb.

100% satisfied. We used Julian (Chef Segreto) and his wife Lilly for a catering event at our house in Dec 2017. We had approx 30 people over. The food Julian made was incredible. The service that Julian & Lilly provided was top-notch. We will definitely be using them again next year. We recommend Chef Segreto & Lilly without reservation! Pete & Kate Ford

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.

A Taste of Soul made our big day even better. They were attentive and flexible with the service. They engaged with our guest and had fun during the event. And the food was outstanding. Couldn't have been better!!

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.

Sylvia catered a small cocktail party in my home. The food was fabulous. Everyone went on about it. She was very easy to chat with when selecting the menu. She is very efficient from setting up and cleaning up too. I will definitely ask Sylvia to cater my next party as well as special dinners for friends and families. I would highly recommend Sylvia to folks who want to enjoy your gathering rather than trying to be host and caterer.

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!!!!!!!��

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.

Great experience with Chef Dave. Lots of communication. He was on time, the food was delicious and because of him, our event was a success and much easier for us to prepare everything and attend to our guests.

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 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!

We used Cooking with Joya for a corporate breakfast event celebrating our admins. It was delicious! Everyone commented on how amazing the food was and asked if we could use her again in the future. The answer was definitely yes! She was on time, easy to work with and very professional. Would highly recommend Cooking with Joya for their next catered event.

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!!!

Natalie did an outstanding job organizing our event. Her level of detail is unmatched by others we contacted. She genuinely cared about executing our vision well beyond our expectations. I highly recommend her and will certainly not look elsewhere when we do other events. In fact, we are in talks with her now about a future project! She's the best!
