Chef Tony cooked us the most DELICIOUS top quality - fresh - dinner ever. Over a month later, my family is still raving about how tasty my birthday dinner was that Chef Tony cooked us. My birthday dinner menu included: -Rustic flat bread pizza with roasted eggplant, sundried tomatoes, arugula, manchego cheese with balsamic paint (the flatbread was perfectly crispy and the flavors came together amazing) -Mexican seafood ceviche (marinated sea bass scallops with avocado salad and lime crispy tortilla chips) I don't eat fish but the rest of my family devoured it and even I tried some and really enjoyed it!! It looked so light, tasty and refreshing that I couldn't help it! -French bree strawberries with toasted almonds in greek film cups (the bree and strawberry together was the perfect balance and broke up the courses perfectly) -Mini maryland crab cakes over granny smith apple cole slaw (everyone in my family went back for seconds and my brothers had 3 each! to the point where I had to stop them so they wouldn't be too full for the next courses. The slaw was soooooooooooooo tasty, I wish I knew how to make that as the perfect side-dish) -Spanish style Arroz con pollo (tomato rice chicken and chorizo) WORDS CAN NOT EXPRESS HOW GOOD THIS TASTED!! We literally could not stop eating it. This was legit real deal spanish arroz con pollo and better than I have eaten at any of the tons of spanish restaurants I have visited) -Cuban spiced grilled pork tenderloin with a pickled ginger mango slaw on a flour tortilla (once again the slaw was made completely different and incredibly flavorful and refreshing. It was the perfect topping for the soft tortilla tacos and the pork was very tasty and tender) -Argentinian steak (grilled latin filet mignon) with roasted red pepper saffron sauce served with whipped sweet potatoes sand grilled asparagus (by this point we were all incredibly full but HAD HAD HAD to eat this because that is how good it was. What an amazing way to end the dinner courses. The filet mignon did not need a knife at all and literally melted in my mouth. I WISH I watched Chef Tony make the sweet potatoes - they were the best I have ever eaten and I am huge food as well as my family. It had the perfect balance of sweet to it and I still am craving sweet potatoes made just like that! The asparagus was a perfect vegetable to go with it along with the home-made gravy he drizzled over the plate) -For dessert we had creme brûlée, italian cheese cake, flourless chocolate cake and warm chocolate chip cookies... For creme brûlée (one of my favorite desserts) Chef Tony even let us cook the top with the fire ourselves! Just typing this menu all over again makes me hungry thinking about the 5 star restaurant quality food Chef Tony made us. Everyone including myself literally loved every single food he served us. I can't express enough how much my family and I enjoyed having Chef Tony cook for us at home. I must have used the word flavorful 100x in this review, but that is literally the only way to explain it. Usually we go out for the family birthdays for all of the siblings, but this was just such a fun new twist that now everyone in my family wants to do this again with Chef Tony! Especially my brother who hates eating out, but the rest of the family always wants to eat out because sometimes it is nice to not have to cook...and now we have the perfect balance by getting a private chef for us like Chef Tony instead. This was the first time I ever hired a private chef and Chef Tony by far exceeded my expectations. He was also incredibly easy to work with on the menu. I can be a bit indecisive at times and I changed things about 3 times and Chef Tony was super easygoing about it and sent me back a new menu each time catering to exactly what I asked for. Since I hired him a week and a half before my birthday, he was very patient with me considering. He faceted with my sister to see her kitchen and go over everything we may or may not need. Oh, did I also mention he brought adorable blue blue linen napkins and made a printed menu with name on heading for every single person in my family eating, which was such a sweet and unique gesture on his end. He was also very friendly at my sister's house and was enjoyable to be around. I will 10000% be calling Chef Tony again and I have already told so many of my friends about him. TRUST ME WHEN I SAY - IT IS WORTH IT! Especially now that winter is coming, who wants to get dressed up and go out in freezing weather when you can hang out in the comfort of your home for quality time with family and friends, put the kids to bed without having to hire a babysitter, have some drinks, play games and get served 5 star quality restaurant food (if not better) ?!?! I am so happy I discovered Chef Tony and I look forward to definitely working again with him in the future. Also Chef Tony is a professional sommelier, but since we were drinking mixed drinks we didn't get the wine pairing included. I read very positive reviews about Chef Tony's wine pairing and my family and I very much look forward to trying that out eventually with Chef Tony. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU Chef Tony for giving me one of those most memorable birthday dinners ever, you truly impressed my family, fiancé's family & myself to the point where like I said, everyone still brings you and your cooking up. I wish I could truly explain in words how positive this review really was it, but I did my very best to try and put into words. Bravo Chef Tony, looking forward to working with you again soon!! ~Thea Francesca

Kathleen is an excellent face painter. I hired her for my daughter's my little pony themed birthday party. She was extremely professional, she brought little goody bags and a present for my daughter. All my guests at my party loved the job she done. I will definitely hire her again for another party. She was painting non stop at the party without even taking a break. I highly recommend her, and I'm so happy that I found her on Thumbtack.

We had two parties in one weekend and Anton made them awesome! First, we had a surprise birthday party for my sister-in-law. Anton did a personal chef dinner party for 14 family members at her home. It was FABULOUS! Anton made everything easy and the food was amazing! Appetizers, steak and lobster....He brought a server and helper and everything was handled beautifully including cleanup! We did nothing except enjoy! The second party was for my mother-in-law's 95th birthday celebration. He catered this event personally delivering his homemade and best Italian food I have ever had! I would recommend Anton and Feast Catering for any event you have! Hint: be sure you get the shrimp shooters and crab balls!

The private catering service we received for our Super Bowl party was as amazing as the food and the food was out of this world! The homemade bleu cheese dressing for the wings was unlike any other we've ever had. Chicken tenders encrusted with pretzel crumbs...to die for. And the brisket? Seemed like it was literally melting in our mouths.

I hired Chef Jim for my husband's 50th birthday party. It was a small intimate dinner for 20. We had both meat eaters and vegetarians attending. I thought this would be a challenge in such a small group. It was fabulous! The food was fantastic and Chef Jim was a "hoot" with the group. The best part, I didn't have to lift a finger! He took care of everything from planning the menu to clean-up. I highly recommend his services.

I used S&B Event Concepts and Catering for a last minute in-home affair and I needed catering quick. It was my first time using a catering company. I setup a last-minute romantic in-home catered dinner for my wife and me. I got rid of the dogs and the kids. I shampooed the carpets and had a long-desired present ready for my wife when she walked in. In addition, when my wife walked in the S&B hostess / waitress and chef were standing (professionally dressed) adjacent to the dining room table. My wife was very surprised. The multi-course dinner, desert and event went perfectly. I worked with Sodiah from start to finish. She talked to me on the phone at times I liked -- at odd hours on occasion as she responded immediately once to my late-evening email. She always responded quickly to my calls. The food menu was huge. I picked out just the stuff I wanted. And, she kept it within my budget and not once suggesting items to raise my spending. We double checked all items and expectations including but not limited to the food selections and preparation desires, timing, supplies, etc. The table setup was complete with fine china and silverware, candles, white linens and other stuff to make it look very special. They used our kitchen and left it spotless (including the trash removal) when they left. She and her team were great to work with. They were pleasant, on-time and very professional. They remained out of site. They exceeded my expectations. They will be my go-to for in-home catering and catering for other events. I will call further in advance next time. I promise.

What an awesome experience! We hired Elite Flavors Catering for a private dinner of (18) guests to celebrate my Dad's 70th Birthday! This was a first for us and boy were we pleased - working with John was so smooth. He stayed on top of every detail and delivered exactly what we envisioned. John and his team were punctual, professional and courteous. They executed four fantastic courses - the food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing! We highly recommend Elite Flavors Catering!

Chef Guidry of Twice the Spice Caterer food was delicious! She delivered personal chef service for a special birthday dinner party. The food was very fresh and high grade/quality. The menu items were well balanced and included an appetizer, several different entrees, and desert. Stephanie even brought drink mixers and adjusted the menu to everyone’s liking, taste, and dietary. Chef’s professionalism extended throughout her cooking and presentation. She was even able to accommodate a few unexpected guests. The food was well prepared, finely seasoned to perfection, absolutely picture perfect and enjoyably delicious! She definitely brought a fine dining restaurant experience to our home handling the shopping, cooking, serving and cleanup. We will definitely utilize Chef Guidry of Twice the Spice Caterer again! Many Thanks, Meek

The whole experience was great. Latonya worked around my schedule and was answering my emails even at 11pm at night. I think the food presentation was outstanding and everything came out great and tasty! The guests were satisfied and I was as well. Only thing I can say was that the chicken tenders were a little dry but that's due to transferring and holding. Other then that, I will be very glad to have her cater my events again. :)

Chef Doug has cooked for me on several occasions. He has a wealth of food knowledge and experience. He is timely, tidy, and professional. Pictured below is a salad with pickled strawberries, grilled chicken, dandelion greens, Gorgonzola, strawberry vinegarette. The other is monkfish on rice with a side of sea beans and accented with lemon zest.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
