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

Hog Day exceeded my expectations in catering my party. We live out of state but Shannon made it easy to do everything on the phone or through thumbtack. She helped me pick out a simple menu for that backyard BBQ feel. The day of the party they came and set everything up from the food down the utensils and plates. Nothing was left out!! The food was amazing!! Everyone raved about the brisket and the macaroni and cheese!! I highly recommend Hog Day for catering your event. Thank you to Shannon for making everything so easy and for an amazing price!

We ordered drop-off catering for my sister-in-law's baby shower for 30 people. Chef Anton worked with me to get the menu finalized and helped with getting me the proper equipment to host the party at my house, which was a huge help as I had a 6 week old baby as of the week of the party. The food was delivered and set up before schedule and everyone agreed that the food was delicious! One thing I wished had been disclosed earlier was delivery costs and other price line items. The initial quote thru Thumbtack was $15 per person but that did not include the delivery fee or other fees. It was well worth the cost, but I just wish I was aware earlier on. Thank you, Anton, I would happily recommend you to my family and friends!

Kim was amazing! She has been very communicative since the moment I contacted her via Thumbtack. Her food shows how much she loves sharing happiness through her dishes. Her food was very flavorful, fresh, and well executed. I would use her catering again for future events.

I have known Alison for 23 years. Allison has catered many events for me from baby showers to Super Bowl parties she hits the mark every time! The food looks amazing and taste even better. Allison has the innate ability to go into someone's kitchen and move around it as if it were her own. She is a master in the kitchen with a heart of gold. Allison uses the same care and love when cooking for your family or friends that she does her own. Cooking is her passion and it shows whether she's in her home or yours. I believe her sparkling personality and incredible Talent will make your occasion truly special. If she has sent you a quote do yourself a favor and reach out to her, you will not be disappointed.

Jerry's Kitchen is a gem within the food truck world. Their menu is full of variety and I have never been disappointed by a dish! They have always been respectful about catering to dietary restrictions and food allergies. I have seen them at multiple food truck festivals and catering events and they have the fastest, most courteous service every time.

Our experience with D’Lish catering was excellent. From the first contact through menu planning and food quality we had a pleasure working with Deirdre and her team. She was working to make our birthday party memorable and the catering experience seamless. The food selection and quality was superb and we received a lot of compliments for both throughout the evening and after the event. We are already planning another event and will consider D’Lish as our first choice. Highly recommended!

She catered my daughter's Outdoor Graduation Party. Her staff came early and went beyond the call of duty, setting up tables & chairs, grilling fantastic tasting food & constantly asking if I needed anything else. I give her company 5 stars. :-)

Lisa's Personal Catering, LLC is very professional and the food is delicious. Her specialty is fried chicken! She catered my father's 90th Birthday Party. She works well with you at the price you can afford and goes out of her way to make it happen! I totally recommend her!

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. :)
