We celebrated our 31 wedding anniversary by having Chef Tony prepare our dinner. Our celebration took place on April 30, 2014, the day it rained cats, dogs and cows! Chef Tony was on time regardless of the severe weather issues. He prepared an exemplary five course meal,with each course accompanied with a great wine. It was like having "Food Network" with the most personable Chef in your home live! What a great memorable experience, which we plan to repeat with Chef Tony again!

Chuck was very helpful throughout our process, always very responsive and accommodating. I of course was a little worried because this was a lunch for our entire company, but Chuck made the process seamless. He was prompt on arrival and set things up very quickly. I did feel badly because our meeting ran a bit over and he was waiting for me to come out and pay the remainder of the invoice. Even with that though, Chuck was very kind and friendly. I did notice after he left that the Assorted Cookies I had ordered were not there. I emailed him and he let me know that they were out and with all the hustle and bustle, he had forgotten to take it off the invoice. I think I would have preferred to have been made aware of the cookies being out beforehand, that way we could have substituted with something else, like the cannoli tray. I did receive the refund a couple hours later, though! Otherwise, it was a very pleasant, easy experience and I would absolutely recommend Every Detail to friends and family.

Last weekend I hosted a 50th Anniversary Dinner Party for my parents. Chef Dan worked with me to put together a menu that would satisfy both the adults and the teenagers in our large family. The food was amazing, each course topping the one prior and the servers he brought were fabulous as well. It was an important evening for my parents and Chef Dan made it a night to remember. I would highly recommend him and hope to hire him again in the future.

Chef Anton was great to work with for our retirement luncheon. He was responsive, professional, flexible, on-time and exceeded all of our expectations. We had Chef Anton caterer a 35 person office luncheon. The spread included mixed greens salad, cheese steak egg rolls, dumplings, pork loin, chicken parm, spinach and potatoes. We also received cannoliis. Chef Anton showed up early, setup everything and the food was great. Everyone in the office thanked me for setting up such a nice event, but I need to thank Chef Anton! All of the food was very good, but the cheese steak eggs rolls were amazing, chicken parm delicious and the salad even received a lot of praise. Thanks Chef Anton and we will look to you for future retirement luncheons and other events!

I ordered a cake from Dees Desserts for my daughters college graduation last year. Not only was the cake absolutely beautiful, I can honestly say I have never tasted a cake like this before. WOW!! When we cut it open, it had 5 + layers, so moist, so fresh.. The icing was literally to die for. All I needed to do was give Dee a theme and off she went. 200% satisfied. I am ordering another one for June 2015. Highly recommended!!

We hired Sodiah Thomas and her crew to cater our wedding this past summer, and they truly surpassed our expectations with respect to food quality, duties performed, and overall value. From the start, Sodiah was easy to work with. She responded to my Thumbtack request promptly with a generous offering that was within our budget. Over the following weeks, Sodiah was always in contact as we finalized our tasting menu and as soon we tasted the appetizers, we were sold. We wanted our wedding dinner to reflect not only our personalities but also the joining of our cultures (Asian-American and American), and Sodiah and the talented Chef Tristan made this happen with their eagerness and food creativity. On our wedding day, the dishes tasted just as good or even better than during our tasting, which is always a concern with scale-up. Our guests thought the food was delicious! And the best part… when the evening was over, I turned around, and Sodiah and her crew had already cleaned everything (without me having to ask), packed everything, and left us with little to do but to enjoy the rest of the evening! I’m a big fan of people who are passionate about what they do, who work hard and exceed expectations. S&B Catering did just that, and hiring them was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Thank you, Sodiah, Tristan, and the rest of the S&B family!

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.

John prepared a wonderful lunch for a birthday party at my home. The ingredients were fresh and expertly prepared. My guests raved about the quality of the food. The biggest "win" was the Caprese Pasta Salad - Delicious. I would highly recommend using J Wicks LLC for any event and look forward to using them again in the future.

When I met with Chef John for a contract signing he was very professional and accommodating to my very specific needs and wants. While creating the menu and going over it chef John catered to some foods I really wanted to include Because of my ethnic background. He was very accepting to looking into these dishes recreating them in his own way but still keeping their authentic taste for the dinner.

First off Nancy is a really nice person and a great chef. She has been working with us for two weeks preparing some great meals for my family. The menus she has suggested have had a good variety and the food has been prepared in a healthy and tasty way. I was just thinking I can't wait to go to work tomorrow to eat some chicken pot pie Nancy made from scratch! She is a true professional that cooks with out effort and cleans up perfectly before leaving. She is highly recommended from me.

    I'm inquiring about this service for my mother and grandmother. They are elderly and live in Ewing, NJ. I live in Philadelphia and am not able to prepare meals for them on a daily basis. As a result they buy a lot of frozen Swanson dinners, which isn't good for them on a daily basis.
