Chef Dominick and his staff did a thoroughly professional job. Our unusually complicated brunch was beautifully presented and delicious and our guests were delighted. The Chef even prepared from scratch a special request from my husband that was not on the menu. For responsive communication, promptness, reliability, high quality dishes, courtesy, classiness and dedication to providing the best possible catering experience, I give Kitchen On Wheels outstanding marks. And, bonus, they cleaned up the kitchen like champs. I highly recommend and would hire again!
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.
Rick is the nicest, sweetest guy - not to mention an amazing chef! We hired him for our wedding and are very impressed with his work! EASY TO REACH: He is the ONLY caterer that you can easily get a hold of with his wonderful assistant and so flexible with our tight budget. FLEXIBLE TO BUDGET: I work at a non-profit so I was really nervous when we started throwing around the idea of catering the food. He was able to be creative to find a solution that fit our budget for our special day. AMAZING FOOD: We set up a tasting to sample his food and it was delicious! He was so generous and sent us home with the leftovers! CLEAN KITCHEN: Rick took us on a tour of his kitchen and showed us his health inspection. It was perfect! KIND HEART: From the moment we met Rick he just had something about him that makes you trust him. As we spoke with him we learned he is a man of many trades with his amazing cuisine, woodworking, and not to mention how he works with a program to train job skills to Developmentally Disabled population. He is just an all around great guy and wonderful chef!
From the very prompt responses from Chuck and John to ALL my questions and such when I was first thinking about booking them for our catering job for my office, to the food and the service we received, everything was TOP NOTCH!!! Honestly, Chuck and the quick and thorough customer service is why we decided to go with A Catered Affair for our office Christmas lunch. Jeremy, who delivered, served and cleaned up at our event was WONDERFUL and the food was TRULY delicious!! The ONLY comment made in any negative light was that the green beans and the carrots could have been cooked longer - they were a little too "crunchy" for most folks' liking. The meat however, turkey and the ham was literally the BEST we'd all had - everyone RAVED about it and the other side dishes (and we got ALOT of side dishes) were totally YUMMY! Everyone was extremely happy and FULL! We had a ton left over as well and we enjoyed it again today! I would recommend A Catered Affair to anyone and we WILL be using them for ALL our catering needs and have shared about them to our entire company here at Cox Media in Dayton, OH.
I needed a quality caterer in a hurry from afar. I read the reviews for Chef Jessica, and sent her some ideas for the 2 days we would need her. She is so easy to work with. The group wrote back telling me "the Catering was a hit! The quality of the food is great and we will definitely redo if we ever need it again!" Day 2 they came back with " She out did herself! Thank you for the awesome food, set up and take down was seamless. The display was beautiful!" I can say that my company is very loyal to a caterer once they find one they like. They are very particular about the quality, and Jessica hit it out of the park! We will continue to use her for future needs!.. Thank you Jessica!
The Happy Chefs are a unique Catering company they are very personable and attention oriated, their pricing is very resonable, would recommend them to anyone! They have catered to my benefits for numerous times!
I usually do the cooking for family functions but with my daughter's very casual, backyard wedding, I knew that I would be in over my head. DeAnna was great!!! And the FOOD, presentation and taste, were excellent!!! All my guests approached me to comment on the food. Needless to say, there was very little left. Thanks DeAnna, if I ever need catering again, I will use Bailey Family Catering. Kim Middleton
LOVED the food today that was catered by Big Red’s. Everything was spot on. They arrived on time, served on time and everyone really loved the food. Very satisfied and will definitely use them again in the future. Appreciate a job well done!!!
We hired Chef Kim to provide family meals, since we have a difficult time finding the time to prepare meals ourselves. We have been using her service for 2 weeks and are extremely happy. Kim has been professional, courteous and PROMPT! Not to mention the excellent meals we have received. It is very difficult to prepare tofu well, and Kim nailed it. My wife and I loved it!!!!!!! Also tried beef medallions prepared perfectly. Amazing meat and vegetarian options. We look forward to our next delivery. In my opinion, the cost is a bargain compared to eating at restaurants 4-5 nights per week (which was basically our situation before meeting Kim). I recommend her without reservation!
Charlie was extremely responsive while working with me to put together a menu for a four day corporate event that was within my budget without allowing the quality of the menu to suffer. The host of my event did not want any open flames to be used by the caterer and this was not an issue. Charlie was there to answer any and all of my questions as they came up and made me feel like I was in good hands of an experienced catering company throughout my experience.
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.
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.
