I don't usually write reviews and am very cautious when reading others reviews. However I must say that everything that all the other reviewers have said is absolutely on point about Mr. & Mrs. Spinelli and their Chef Services!!! they were absolutely amazing to work with. I hired Mr. Spinelli's team to run a waffle station and omelet bar for a birthday brunch. We were running late. They came dressed professionally, with their tools, and ready to work! They stepped in and got everything ready and put everything in it's place without any question. They were beyond friendly. They went above and beyond, preforming tasks that I did not even expect them to do. Everyone there could see that they took pride in their work and service as they stayed longer to ensure that everything was in order. It seemed so chaotic but you could not tell from their demeanor. I don't think there are enough words to express my gratitude for them coming in and making my party a memorable one. Afterwards, everyone asked me if they could get their contact information for future events. I would definitely recommend their services to anyone looking for servers or catering! Thanks Mr. & Mrs. Spinelli!

Chef Margherita was outstanding! She provided plated dinner for small dinner party at our home. She is incredibly flexible and easy to work with. Every part of the meal was amazing. Lump crab salad with heirloom tomatoes was so flavorful and delicious. The best part of the night is that we didn't have to do a thing- she brings everything that she needs to make it an amazing evening. I think I will plan another dinner party, just so we can have Chef Margherita come again!

Michael is a consummate Chef. His attention to detail, ability to listen, yet, offer his expertise to enhance the culinary choices based on his experience, and his understanding of the importance of presentation, food quality, and overall excellence, far exceeded my expectations. Rave reviews from all who attended my daughter's bridal shower luncheon. I recommend Souperb Catering, with Michael at its helm, without any hesitation. You will not be disappointed!

I had Chefs Catering for my husbands birthday party over the summer and it was amazing!! I loved that Mike was able to put together a menu that worked perfectly for our party. He was open to anything I requested. He really does a great job. I wouldn't think twice about having him for another event!

We hired Epicurean Services for an in home cooking lesson. My boyfriend is a moderately experienced chef and Bradley did a fantastic job of working with his level of experience to make the lesson informative for both of us. He cooked stuffed fish, rice pilaf and green bean almondine. The rice pilaf was delicious and simple, I have already remade it less than a week later. The green beans and tilapia were creamy and filled with flavor. Bradley was so much fun to talk to and I really enjoyed the convenience and comfort of having a fine dining experience at home. I look forward to using Epicurean Services in the future for events and relaxing date nights. Bradley is passionate and knowledgeable about his work and I would recommend his services to any human being with the ability to eat food.
