We are very pleased with our choice of Frank to do the job of putting together and installing our IKEA kitchen. Anyone who has put together IKEA furniture before knows it's quite a task! He is a family-owned business and works wonderfully with his son and wife. It was a pleasure getting to know them, all while watching our kitchen come together! Frank is thorough and precise about his decisions, always making sure we were happy. He saved us a good chunk of money, costing significantly less than the cost of the IKEA installers, while still doing a professional job. Best of all, we created a friendship with him and his family. They were so sweet to our 5 & 2 year old sons and were beyond trustworthy. Sometimes when you hire someone to do work in your home that requires a few days to accomplish, you can't wait to just have it done and have 'strangers' out of your house. I can honestly say that it was hard to say goodbye to him and his family when the job was done. Thank you Frank! We would do it all over again if we had to. We will add photos of the finished kitchen when our backsplash is done later this week!

Carmen was excellent! She catered my wedding of about 100 people. The food was excellent and her and her staff were very professional. The kitchen was cleaner than when she arrived. She had plates ready for me and the groom set apart of the guests which was very special for us. She was always quick to respond to my questions and had some great suggestions. Couldn't of asked for a better experience.

Chef Tyler catered a small dinner party I attended recently. It was an amazing mix of classy yet met the casual feel of our group. We enjoyed meeting the chefs and their professionalism was top notch! The food was to die for and I tried foods that I have never eaten in my life and tried a spin on foods that I love! I would recommend Chef Tyler for any event you are looking to cater.

Gourmet to go is wonderful! I have used the service for about a year now. Jim goes out of his way to make special requests for my meals and has always been accommodating. The food is great too! We are two full time working parents with a baby and not much time to cook, so this service has been very helpful.

Right from the start Sue was very easy to work with. She responded quickly to my questions as I was deciding on who to cater my daughter's wedding. Her confidence and accommodating manner won me over and I decided to go with Roosterdoodles for the big day. The selections to choose from for my menu were incredible. There was so much to choose from. I was able to choose just the perfect mix of food for the guests we were having. She made a trip to Clifton Park to meet me, see the venue,and offereed suggestions as to the table set up, etc. AS we neared the day, she responded with confirmations and asked if there was anything else she could help me with, like the cake and favors. I described the cake I was looking for and she said she could do anything. I decided to go with her for it, so she did everything. IShe offered some suggestions I did not want and I was very specific about what I wanted and she gave me exactly what I wanted. On the wedding day, she arrived with a small crew and delivered. She called to let me know exactly when she would be arriving and was on time. She and her crew worked the whole event, tending to the buffet and preparing the dessert table and clearing the buffet food. The presentation was gorgeous for everything, very classy. The mediterranean platter was unbelievable. The beef brisket was so tender, not tough like you often get with large quantities. The chicken was also incredibly tender and juicy, just perfect. The flavors of her sauces were mouth watering and obviously home made. The food was delicious. Everyone at my table all ask who catered. THey said it was the best wedding food they ever had. One guest said he rarely saw the quality of food that we had and he is global traveler by trade. Later that day and even the next two days, as I ran into friends and family, everyone commented on how amazing the food was. Some attended a wedding at a very popular country club in the area and they all agreed that my wedding was superior, both in the event itself and in the food. Susan's price was very reasonable, the service was excellent, and the food was out of this world. The cake was something like I had seen on pinterest. It was exactly what I wanted, even better! I will definately use Susan again. I can't wait to taste her other dishes. I may even make a trip to Cairo to visit her cafe. I know it would be worth the trip. I highly recommend Roosterdoodles for your event. You won't regret it!

Chef Sylvia was a highlight of a weekend celebrating a bride-to-be in the mountains! She was easy to communicate with via email or phone, had helpful suggestions of menu, arrived early and was so nice to work with. Her food was delicious, worked with dietary requirements of the group, and left the kitchen sparkling clean! Also, her whole process was flawless from beginning to end and very affordable. We will certainly use Chef Sylvia again when we are back in the Asheville area! Thank you!

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.

We had a phenomenal experience working with Top Hat and Liane. Liane and her staff showed up early to prepare giving us a lot of comfort. The food was phenomenal, as everyone loved the meal. We were able to customize the menu to our liking. The service with the bartender/server and chef were incredible. All in all, the event experience with Top Hat exceeded our expectations and we will most certainly use Liane and team again in the future. She took all the stress out of planning our first party.

Such an amazing chef! Desserts, soups, entrées, you name it they are delicious. Best turkey chili I've ever tasted. I could eat it everyday. Yummy chicken tikki masala, hearty and flavorful potato soup, she couldn't make a dry chicken breast if she tried....not to mention desserts that would make anyone's sweet tooth dance! Must try her vegan chocolate cake, you'll never want another cake, promise. Overall...great chef, highly recommended.

I am SO glad I chose to hire Joya to be the private chef at my event. She cooked 5 meals for us + snacks all vegan. Not everyone at the event was vegan but everyone found ALL the meals delicious which was amazing. She was one time and on schedule for everything, so sweet, put a lot of love into her food/work and I truly hope to work with her again in the future. If you are thinking about hiring Joya definitely do it! You will not regret it.

My coworkers and I had a GREAT time during our cooking class with The Cook Nook. Catherine was very professional and knowledgeable , she was very helpful, and made the class fun. We learned how to correctly hold a knife, chop vegetables, and my favorite part, make homemade egg rolls! I’d recommend Catherine and The Cook Nook 1,000%!!

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!!!

I was very fortuate to attend an Engagement Announcement Party planned and executed by the DIN events, llc company; in Charlotte, North Carolina. The entire experience was extremely extravagant and very very professionally done. The Event Location was beautifully decorated and enviting. There was a feeling of warmth and love in the air. The Caterer selected was outstanding!!!! The desserts that were prepared by the Dessert Chef were absolutely scrumptious. Ms. Smith's entire staff were pleasant and each guest were made to feel special. I always arrive at events early and upon my arrival the staff was in place. Ms. Smith has a natural warmth and a beautiful inviting smile; as you can tell she loves the profession she's chosen.

I first tried Sugar & Spice Bakery while I was shopping at Just Around The Corner in Lincolnton. I purchased a few of their snickerdoodle and chocolate chip cookies.. They were phenomenal.. Like, the best cookies I've EVER had. My daughter and I began going there for the sole purpose of purchasing cookies at least 3x a week. I used this bakery to order a few dozen cookies for our home and to send to the local police department as a thank you gift. Sugar & Spice personalized my order and was prompt with their responses to my questions. For my daughters second birthday, I inquired about a customized cake from and Sugar & Spice went above and beyond. The icing, peppermint and strawberry, tasted fantastic, so did the rest of the cake & cupcakes. They hold a higher standard of baking than most. The quality of their products and the amazing customer service are second to none. I'm so glad that I stumbled upon their booth months ago. I highly recommend them to anyone and everyone in need of a wonderful baker.

I was looking for an option for my best friend's birthday. We had some guest coming in from out of town and we knew they would be going out at least one night of the weekend so we were looking for another option! I basically went on Google and searched "Personal Chefs in Charlotte" and it lead me to Thumbtack. I was like what the hell, I'll give it a shot! So, I did and I received back several quotes almost immediately. I messaged each back and also checked out their profiles and searched them to see what I could find. I like to see pictures and I'm definitely a review reader. Another thing I'm big on is a personal connection. I can tell within a few minutes of talking with someone if I'm going to like that person or not. From the very first messages with Chris, I knew he was our guy. He was crazy quick at responding, which myself and our Type A birthday girl loved and I could tell was just a laid back guy. We are completely open to any food as long as it's good so I pretty much let him take the lead. He introduced the idea of a an Italian tasting menu to me and gave me some options and with the approval of the BG, we made our selections. He got to our party spot right on time, brought everything he needed and was very professional. He got to work right away getting everything started and we knew right off the bat he was going to work with us. He entertained all of our crazy questions while still working and just went with the flow. His food was AMAZING. Everything was so good. A few of us tried things we had never had and were pleasantly surprised. I believe in supporting small businesses and this guy was definitely worth every penny we spent. I will most definitely reach out to Chris in the future for my entertaining needs! Thank you Chef Chris for being awesome and putting up with us!!!
