Zacki's service was outstanding. She was personable and got along with all of my guests. Everyone loved her and her food. She was very easy to work with in planning my dinner party and her attention to detail was very much appreciated. I would recommend her a million times over! She is the best you'll find in this area.

The food was delicious, there was plenty of it, and everyone enjoyed the meal. We did not need wait staff, just the food prep. It was delivered on time, and the service was professional and courteous. I would definitely use Black Creek Catering again.

About

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.

I had a casual office work party at my house. I wanted to do burgers and brats, but didn't want to spend my time at the grill. Lamar came and brought everything needed for the party and manned the grill, so that I could entertain my guests. The food was great and the service was perfect. I will use Lamar again for my catering needs.

Chef Camille and her team catered my August 2014 wedding reception AMAZINGLY! She was extremely helpful in creating a menu that complimented our tropical theme. ChefCamille was a delight to work with she very professional, offered creative ideas but also patient & accomodating with the overwhelmed bride-2-be, me;). Presentation was elegant, heard the food was yummy and guests are still raving about how delicious 2Girls Catering cupcakes were. Sometimes everything doesn't unfold exactly how one plans, but I applaud this cater in going the extra mile to make her customers happy at the end of the day. Want great service, delish dishes, fab desserts all executed with compassion & sensitivity to your personal request as well as outstanding professionalism give Chef Camille a call! Oh yea, with hectic schedules we all fight to find the time to create well balanced meals, so try 2girls prepared meals. We did and loved it! Thanks ChefCamille for being such a blessings to us♡♡♡

I was planning an open house event for our company and contacted multiple caterers for heavy hors d'oeuvres and drinks for about 60 people. Shawn instantly reached out to talk though the event with me so he could understand what I was looking for. What was so great about working with Shawn is from the beginning he was in the same page as me and knew exactly what I was looking for. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and worked with me to create a wonderful menu and overall fantastic experience for our guests. The food was phenomenal and our guests were all raving. Not only did Shawn deliver amazing food and service as promised, but he beyond exceeded my expectations and truly was a delight to work with. I would highly recommend him and look forward to working with him again in the future.

My husband turned 50 this year, and we decided it would be fun to have a chef come to our home (July 5, 2014) to cook a wonderful meal for our family of 5 plus our extended family. Wow!!! What an amazing experience and wonderful birthday celebration! Chefs Alex, Leo, and their assistant, Ashanta, were incredible to work with. I found them on Thumbtack, and was a little nervous going in. They instantly put me at ease with their great ideas, their awesome personalities, and their aim to please. It was so easy to work with them from start to finish. They planned and grocery shopped in just 5 days (I unfortunately did not give them much advance notice.) Our menu was incredible. We started the evening with delicious appetizers, including brie in croute with raspberry – served with assorted crackers, shrimp, homemade salsa and guac, chicken Florentine roulade on crackers, and bruschetta on crostini. All beautifully presented and delicious! Next, we were seated for salads (bowls made of cucumber!), and then our entrees. Amazing presentation, and everything was delectable. For dinner, our guests had the choice of filet --or mahi with mango salsa. The entrees were served with mashed potatoes and green beans. Again – amazing flavor and presentation. Clean plates all around. After dinner, we were treated to an incredible assortment of desserts – pear and blueberry cobbler, lemon meringue tartlets, chocolate torte, and meringue with chocolate kisses. We were in heaven. Our guests were so pleased and impressed with everything and kept complimenting the chefs throughout the evening. After each course, Alex, Leo, and Ashanta were so great about cleaning up and making sure we were happy. They went above & beyond to make sure we got exactly what we wanted out of our catering experience. They expertly handled every detail -- even last-minute floral arrangements. (Beautiful and affordable!) AV Catering was everything I had hoped for (and more!) in a chef/caterer. I would highly recommend them to anyone who was looking for a great chef/catering company for their event. -- Ronnie G.

Unique. Delicious. Distinctive taste in each empanada flavor. Easy navigation thru their website and Order Form. We loved the ability to customize the qty. of flavors based on our individual preferences. Excited to try more. Last week we placed an order of 50 empanadas to surprise my family of 10 (which includes picky grandparents, college boys, a pregnant sister & health conscious parents) after traveling a 7-hr road trip. This uncomplicated stress-free, FUN finger food idea was worth it! Most impressed by how warm and fresh the flaky golden empanadas tasted as you bit into them and had cheese oozing out. Chicken, Ham & Cheese and Sweet Corn were the favorites. Also enhancing the experience is how cool the owners are; brothers Hernan & Santiago. They brought the Latin flare and empanada enthusiasm right to our living room sharing funny stories from Buenos Aires and advising on best ways to eat them (with wine!! coffee, etc.) Definitely ordering again in December! Makus is the ideal catering option for holiday parties here in Raleigh. And I highly recommend for people who like to eat family-style and prefer to share food & stories instead of dish duty!

I reached out to Moses T's Catering because we actually needed staff to help serve at my mother's retirement celebration during the July 4th weekend. I sent my request to Thumbtack with very short notice not knowing what to expect. Chef Q contacted me and really listened to what our needs were and he made some great suggestions to make this huge event a success. He sent members of his staff over for 2 days and they helped with setting up, serving food, hors d'oeuvres and keeping things in order. We could NOT have done the event without his help. The staff was on time, neat, helpful, friendly and professional. As a professional planner myself -- I was very pleased and really quite grateful that it went so well. I would not only highly recommend his staffing services, but I am willing to bet that his catering services are also excellent and plan to book Moses T's Catering as soon as I have another large event in Raleigh, NC. Thank you Chef Q and crew -- you all ROCKED!

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!

I have been to several events catered by My Chef Catering and found both their food and presentation to be superb. I have since hired Steven to prepare food for an event and it garnered rave reviews from guests. Steve is easy to work with and I would highly recommend his services.

Drew did a fantastic job catering a party for 45 in my home. He took my gluten allergy very seriously, and made sure that everything he made for our party would be safe for me to eat. The tables were spread with a wonderful variety of tasty, beautifully displayed food. Drew also ordered my wine (which was great) and acted as bartender, while his lovely wife Kelli managed all aspects of the food, and did an amazing job keeping the food stocked, dishes cleared, and then cleaned up and stored the extra food in my refrigerator! I was beyond grateful and very happy to have Drew and Kelli helping to make it a wonderful, memorable occasion for me and my fiance. Thank you for everything, Drew and Kelli! I highly recommend RallyPoint for an elegant catered gathering!
