Event Help and Wait Staff

I was having a birthday party and looking for event staff. After reading several profiles and reviews I received a message from Harvest Caterers offering their services. I entered into this agreement very cautiously as I had NEVER acquired any services like this before, always relying on family and friends. Now, I will NEVER have an event without Harvest Caterers! Darlene and her team are AWESOME! Darlene’s magic appeared immediately and way before my event. She reassured me that she and her team would take EVERYTHING at my event and began planning that very moment I hired her. Initially I was only hiring them for the day of because I already ordered food from another vendor. When my guest list expanded I asked Harvest to supply 3 dishes and they were phenomenal. My guests raved about the Garlic Wings, Rasta Pasta, and Ribs. The staff were professional, attentive and warm. The 4 servers and bartender arrived 2 hours before my event, set up and were in place before my guests arrived. They served my family and closest friends with such kindness and care that set the vibe for the whole evening. At the end they packed and cleaned up EVERYTHING. All I had to do was walk out the door. Several of my guests complimented their work. It’s been 3 days since my event and I’m still getting calls complimenting and inquiring about their services. I don’t mean to drag this review but I just had to share just how wonderful they were and how pleased I am with the outcome of this arrangement. I was having a very trying day leading up to my party. I had a full turnout of over a 150 people and had Darlene and her team not been the most competent, kind, warm and professional team they were, my event could have been a bust.

Wedding and Event Catering

Working with Ms. Darlene was an amazing experience. She was professional, thorough, follow up was impeccable. They showed up way ahead of schedule. Setup everything and the food was DELICIOUS!! I haven’t had a chance to communicate with her because I’ve been answering emails and texts about where I catered the food from. Book her now, you won’t regret it. Thanks for making my first Thumbtack experience awesome. I’m grateful!!

Wedding and Event Catering

Darlene and Harvest caterers gave me great quality for a reasonable price and went above and beyond. She fixed my tables so they can go with my theme which allowed me not to need a decorator for my small intimate wedding and the decorations she added went PERFECTLY with my theme!!

Darlene is very kind and responsive. She worked out the menu within my budget. Her staff was on time and very professional. They took care of everything- I barely had to lift a finger! I would certainly use this catering service again!

    I decided to get into my line of work because of my passion for good tasting food. I would go out to restaurants and either not enjoy the food or the service.
