Kitchen on Wheels Catering catered my wedding this October of 100 people. They came early and served appetizers, provided a bartender, and served the main course. Dominick met with me beforehand and was enthusiastic to work with my preferences for local, organic food. He worked with me to design a seasonal, organic menu at an incredibly reasonable rate. The food was phenomenal, and the guests raved about it all night. The service was exceptional as well. I would recommend Kitchen on Wheels to anyone, and would call them in a heartbeat for any catering needs I have in the future! Thanks so much, Dominick, for your great, thoughtful work.

Greg himself was over 2 hours late arriving to set up. He was supposed to arrive at 2:30 an food was to be served by 5-5:30. He arrived at 4:30 only to leave 15 min later because he received a call from his driver with the food saying he was lost and was having a panic attack. Greg and his sister left his niece, which was her 1st day on the job, (as she told me) at the reception to get drinks going, which she didn't do, that had to be done by my son-in-laws aunt's and grandmother and myself. My daughter's wedding was ruined. I am not being dramatic it was absolutely ruined. I didn't get to enjoy the reception nor did my son-in-laws mother because we were to busy getting coffee refilled and drinks and dealing with the driver who had come in thru the front door and told a guest how he needed to lay down because he was having a panic attack. So, while Greg dished out the food (which I was told some of the chicken was undercooked) uncles. aunts, and church elders were continuously checking on Greg's employee, which is ridiculous because they were there for a reception of their niece and nephew. Also, because of his lateness, about 150 ppl left because the wedding was at 4:30 and ppl were starving by 7:00 and no food had arrived. so needless to say her mother-in-law who paid for 300 ppl, only about 150 ppl actually ate. Greg arrived about 7:20 and food was served about 7:40. (ppl complained of the chicken being undercooked). I then found out, once the reception was over and cleaning up that Greg threw away about 4 trays of chicken, at least 4 trays of lasagna,(I saw this in 2 garbage bags that were half full of this food, and was told by a groomsman who was taking the trash out that he had taken 2 other bags just like that, he also took back the breadsticks he didn't use and took with him the green beans and salad that were left over. This truly disgusts me. This food was paid for and he just threw it away. he did leave 3 trays of chicken and 2 trays of lasagna, but threw away so much more without asking?? That food was paid for. I didn't pay for the food this was done by my daughter's mother-in-law. From what I understand Greg's response was to give her a $100 back and then credit towards her next event!!! Why he would think she would ever use him again is beyond me. His response was that in his contract, he's not responsible for what his driver does (he failed to respond to the fact that HE was 2 hrs late) also, that HE threw away all that food. He also said he'd already given us a big discount. That discount was because we had 300 guests (he had 3 ppl as his staff, which consisted of him, his sister and his niece who looked to be about 18 and it was her first time) and that was his excuse for not refunding her money back. The discount does not excuse the fact that HE was late, his driver was late, he threw away food, he didn't provide drink service (we did, aunts and grandma's and myself and her mother-in-law). When her mother-in-law said that was unacceptable I hear he threatened her with his lawyer. She wasn't even looking for a full refund which i believe she deserves, the very least she should be refunded for the 150 ppl that walked out.(she said she would have been ok with $500 back just for the gesture of admitting he completely screwed up our kids wedding reception) I don't now where this stands but I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS CATERER. I read his reviews and I met him in person. I trusted that he was going to help make my daughter's day special and something to remember. He definitely didn't make it special but it will be remembered. I understand things happen the driver getting lost, but none of this would've happened if Greg hadn't been late himself and there's no excuse for throwing away that food.

I had a phenomenal experience with A Catered Affair for my wedding reception. It was very easy to coordinate with the staff beforehand, so I didn't need to tend to anything on the wedding day. They had everything set up at the hall exactly as needed and it looked very professional. The staff did an amazing job of tending to the buffet and cleaning, and all with a smile. The food was delicious, and I got so many compliments about the great food and great service. I would recommend A Catered Affair for any event - I am incredibly pleased with my decision to have them cater my wedding!

The Nibbles staff catered my daughter's wedding that I had at my home. They were so professional, arriving on time with everything they needed. They were very attentive all night, keeping track of the flow of the reception and checking in with me on key points. But, at the same time they took it on themselves to make decisions for many things to keep things running smoothly (which I so appreciated since I was busy with other things). Their cleanup was great and they left my kitchen cleaner than they found it! Thanks Nibbles!

I had The Happy Chefs handle a birthday celebration dinner party for 10. Chef Jay and his crew did a top-notch job. Chef Jay was great at communicating before the event. At the event the food and the service were tremendous. The guests all raved about the food and clearly had a memorable evening.There were a number of courses/interaction points and their professionalism, personal interaction,flexibility and politeness were absolutely first class. In short, it was a spectacular event and I recommend The Happy Chefs without hesitation.

Marco went above and beyond for our wedding!!! He was very professional and punctual. You can tell just by talking with him his passion for his work. The food was amazing and such a hit! He made our taco bar beautifully and the food was exquisite. All of our guests were more than satisfied with the options. We will definitely be keeping his contact information for further events in our future!

Kristie is awesome to work with. She goes the extra mile to make wedding dreams come true. If we showed her an example of something we liked she new how to get it, either by making it herself or where to get it.We had a destination wedding and Kristie came to the beach and worked so hard to get us what we wanted.We came home and had a beautiful reception. So many guests replied " it looked like something out of a magazine" it was gorgeous. Kristie spent a lot of time with us working on every detail. She even MADE beautiful hair accessories that looked like antique brooches,found mothers gifts, bridesmaids gifts, she did it all, flowers, food , music, venue, photography. There are so many decisions and details with a wedding that we couldn't have done it with out her. She is so talented and has the best ideas. I would use her services again for parties, dinners, receptions, showers, loved working with her.

Chef Otis is VERY knowledgeable. We organized a grilling how to class and date night for 5 couples. He dealt with a food allergy without batting an eye. The theme of the meal was Jamaican Jerk Chicken and it was amazing!!! We are already planning our next event with Chef Otis.

Streetside 62 has excellent food for a good value. The restaurant is a terrific place to have a meal in the dining room and a cocktail on the patio. Their catering is top notch (of course it helps dealing with the owner directly). The food does not drop in quality just because it is a catering job. The 2 weddings and a few corporate events catered by Matt where very very good. Would recommend to anyone for sure.
