"This was the best food!" EVERYONE Ellen catered to for our dinner last evening could not get over how delicious their meals were. There are not enough words of gratitude I can share with her or any of you who are considering to hire her for your event. Ellen is concise when reaching out with her menus, her menus are organized by cuisine (making it easy to discuss), her response time is excellent, there are no hidden last minute charges, she shows up at the agreed time, is able to work in a challenging kitchen (we are in an office with a no flame policy and she made do with sternos), her food presentation is attractive and appetizing, and she is an absolute gem to work with. I have been in the food and beverage industry for 20 years, worked with many many chefs and Ellen is the real deal. Our group was falling behind and dinner service was delayed by close to 45 minutes. She made sure the main courses were still hot and of the best integrity, which is difficult to do when serving poultry and fish. Everything was seasoned beautifully with a variety of flavors with each course. Truly, the whole experience was magical and I can't wait to work with her again. Thank you so much Ellen!

I hired Chef Nirschel to work a corporate dinner for my company. He was fantastic! He went above and beyond what was asked of him. He catered to my clients, food was amazing and he was fast and efficient.

This was last minute, and I haven't had better from chefs who had days to prepare. The menu was well suited to the occasion, the presentation was elegant and the taste good the the last bite. Thanks Wayne

We hired Tamara and her team for a 15 person dinner party. I wanted light bites so everyone would be able to eat as they wanted and mingle while enjoying their food. They met every one of my expectations. Tamara with Amoraco catering was so easy to work with. She was timely, responsive, and very flexible in creating the perfect menu for my dinner party. We were lucky enough to have chef Mona cook for us. Mona was so friendly and took care of everything so I did not have to worry about a single thing but enjoying the food and my guests. The food was outstanding-everything she cooked was perfect. We had 15 people and everyone commented on how awesome Mona was and how amazing the food was. Can not recommend Amoraco Catering enough! Will definitely be using them again.

Every year, our family gets together from SF, NYC and Austin TX. Recently, we elected to source a chef to help facilitate our big saturday night evening. One this night, there are 20 people under the roof and two dogs. Chef Dan and his fiance were superb. As anyone w a large family can attest, there are usually last-second snags. Chef Dan accomodated these schedule adjustments in stride. He arrived on time (early actually). He quickly surveyed the scene and was super accomodating of the toddlers running around complicating his efforts. He took it in stride and even played with the little ones. The food was outstanding. We have many unique diets in the family and Chef Dan accomodated all of them. When the gluten-free macnchhese hit the table, my niece shrieked in joy. I didnt ask Chef Dan for gluten free macncheese, he took the initiative based on our discussions prior to the event. On that note, Chef Dan was very easy to get a hold of prior to the event. Back to the food which was on point: the food was great! My family has picky eaters and there were no bad reviews. Id be happy to highlight the dishes we selected if requested. The scallops were seared to perfection and the lamb chops were spot on. Lastly, we didnt have to lift a finger. The service was on point.

This was a special dinner for two. Everything from start to finish was perfection. Steve (our chef) was friendly, talented, and thoughtful. I can't recommend this experience highly enough.

We had a wonderful time at our group cooking class at La Pulperia. Chef Carlos and his team were so gracious (accommodating of food allergies) and the food was delicious - empanadas, salmon tartar, guacamole and ricotta gnocchi (which we learned how to make). We enjoyed making one of their signature cocktails and sipped wine (and tequila). Thanks to Chef Carlos and everyone at La Pulperia for such a fun and unique time. Also, thanks so much to Tyler for setting everything up!

When Chef Peter says he will "wow" you with his food and presentation, he doesn't disappoint. He suggested a creative, yet appropriate menu; presented a delectable dinner for 6; and left the kitchen in pristine order. If that weren't enough, it's a pleasure to work with this talented young man.

Great service and Great food. Mr. Evans was prompted with delivery and professional. The food was fresh. The most popular dish of the night was the jerk wings. The mac and cheese balls was my favorite. If I had to choose a chef to travel when eating healthy on the go, meal prepping and enjoyable food, I would choose Kulinary Kings Catering services. .. Thanks again!!!

Melissa was great. We had an in-depth conversation up front about our dietary restrictions including a shellfish allergy, a gluten sensitivity, and a dairy sensitivity within our party. Overall, we were aiming for a vegan meal. She worked with us and gave us multiple suggestions on dinner options based on our likes and dislikes. She even came by the house to provide samples of her dishes before the event. The night of the event, she did a great job executing appetizers, dinner, and dessert. The food was delicious and she left our kitchen in better shape than she found. I highly recommend Melissa as your next personal chef!

Absolutely beyond 5 star experience. Chef Dave prepared the most incredible food. I am still blown away by what he was able to create for my wedding.

OpenSkies Hospitality hosted my bridal shower and made it a truly amazing experience! The food and service were high quality and Chef Albert did a great job! He was extremely responsive and accommodating! All of my guests couldn't get over how delicious the food was and how attentive the service was. I would highly recommend OpenSkies Hospitality for any event! I look forward to planning many more events with OpenSkies Hospitality.

I hired Chef Doris Worthington and her team at "Now That Was A Great Party" to cater my sister's 75th surprise birthday party on Sunday, April 9, 2017. It was by far the best decision I could have made. I found their catering service through Thumb Tack, and took a chance to use the service, because all the coordination had to be done long distance; by telephone, text and Email. This catering service is Top Notch. They lived up to their word and their website advertisement. They were very professional and knowledgable about their customer's catering needs. Doris was able to offer several suggestions which helped to enhance the success of our party. Every detail was perfectly coordinated by the Caterer; from the table displays (which were beautiful), to the choice of colors to blend in with our color scheme; to perfecto food choices. The food was absolutely delicious. My sister was totally surprised and most pleased with the service and the food. We could not have asked for better service. We are very grateful to Chef Doris and her team at "Now That Was A Great Party". They certainly lived up to the business name. We had a great time and would not hesitate to use them again, and refer their service to others.

The chefs are most accomodating to my dietary needs all the while making me feel like I'm not missing out on the foods I love. I was served a delicious and completely Vegan Mexican inspired dip that was seasoned perfectly and was creamy and "meaty". Their food was amazing!

Chef Pearl is a very professional and easy to work with person! She managed to make make cake only a few days after order and made it so beautiful! She always responds fast. If you are looking for a person who will make your life easier, hire Chef Pearl! It took me 10 minutes of phone conversation with her and my wedding cake order was done. And the cake turned out beautiful and delicious!

JP catered a party for us of about 40 adults and 20 kids and we had a great experience working with him - highly recommend his services! He was responsive and flexible during the planning phase, able to modify his gameplan day-of when our rooftop venue got rained out :( and prepped and served the food efficiently, beautifully and notably, without needing anything from us as hosts, letting us truly enjoy the party. On top of all that, all the guests loved the food itself and several have inquired about contacting JP for their own events. I’m happy to make those connections because JP is truly a great chef and a consummate professional!

Elemental did a nice job for my kid's 1st birthday party. My one call out is the chef listed two items' ingredients on the menu we agreed upon differently than how they were prepared the day of the party which I didn't love, but otherwise a solid job. Just needs to communicate any menu changes.

I love the convenience of this service. I work late and sometimes don't have time to make a meal, so knowing that something is in the fridge ready to go is amazing! The food is DELICIOUS. All fresh ingredients, super tasty and good for you! Bonus delivery to my door from my awesome chef. I even gave my pyrex containers to "go green" and they put my meals in them. I can easily pop them in my toaster oven to heat things up.
