My fiance and I went on thumbtack, looking for a personal chef to do our wedding. Of all the chefs who responded to us we were immediately impressed with how professional and thorough Tony was. Whereas others who contacted us simply gave us a price range based on our number of guests, Tony supplied us with some examples of menus from previous clients, but also assured us that what he would prepare for us would be specifically customized to meet our needs. He came to our home for an initial consultation, and we immediately hit it off. He was personable and professional. We discussed the menu as well as the logistics; including a tent, tables and chairs, dinnerware, and decorative flowers. We were relieved when he told us that he would take care of all of those things if we wanted, and he did, except for the flowers. (Although he did supply flowers for the tables and even offered to find someone to perform the ceremony) The affair was to be an intimate dinner with seventeen guests and we planned to have our wedding at home in the garden. We decided where the food would be prepared as well as the dining and serving tables. The menu we agreed upon was eclectic, with an international theme. It would consist of a five course dinner with a wine pairing with each course, and a cocktail hour before the first course. From the start, we loved how it sounded and we were eagerly anticipating seeing and tasting everything. Incidentally, he also made another trip to our home weeks later when we were having second thoughts about how to set everything up. The day of the wedding Tony and his staff arrived promptly. The rental tables, chairs and dinnerware had arrived the previous afternoon. After the ceremony and some photo taking was the cocktail hour. The hors d'oeuvres were all delicious and beautifully presented, and so were each of the five courses to follow. The staff was professional and courteous and their appearances were tasteful. The table settings were elegant, and exactly what we had wanted. The quality and freshness of the food was outstanding. The third course, grilled Pacific salmon and pan seared Chilean sea bass, drizzled with a strawberry citrus sauce was one of the most delicious dishes I ever had in my fife, and the salmon was grilled absolutely perfectly. If I had to find something less than desirable, I would say that there was one server who most guests agreed was not very friendly but she may have just been nervous. As for the food, there was an Australian grilled boneless leg of lamb which was a little overcooked for my wife and my tastes, but our guests had no complaints. However in all honesty, to find negative aspects of the entire experience I'm reaching somewhat, as the overall experience was simply amazing and all the things we loved about it far outweigh the aforementioned mild disappointments. It exceeded our already hopeful expectations. Furthermore, the price was definitely reasonable. When one of our guests inquired about the cost per plate (not including rentals) he was astounded that it did not cost much more. Finally, all of our guests raved about the day to no end and many of them said it was the most elegant wedding they had ever attended. I'm quite certain some of them will be contacting Tony for an event of their own.

My husband and I were looking for a kind, friendly and personable bartender. After the reading the reviews for Santisi Catering, we decided to book and I am glad that we did. Our Bartender name was Kimberly(same as mine) and I said to myself " we have the same name so I know she will be wonderful". Kim was everything that we wanted in a bartender. I couldn't believe that she went into help mode from the moment she walked in the door, quickly saying "what do you need me to do" and " I will do it for you". We are already lookin forward to doing business again with Santisi Catering. Highly recommended.

Ummm So Shannon was AMAZING. With little direction to go on by me, she came with more then she promised. Her food was the highlight of my wife's baby shower, for sure. Everyone talked about how good teh food was, people were asking for recipes...it really was above and beyond what i could have asked for. Her prices were resonable and she was an absolute pleasure to have around. We didn't even get BBQ, and the food was delicious. I may be contacting her for a few small orders of her gluten free pastries (which she made for us custom). I really can't say enough about how impressed and thankful I am. Hire, Shannon now if your reading this...You will be glad if you do!

Anton was so wonderful to us during the whole process. From the first phone call, picking our buffett menu and pricing. We had a set per person price and he quoted us under it. We had impeccable service at our wedding reception. His staff treated my husband an I like a king and queen. Now to the food. The best I can come up with is amazingly awesome. Everything was way beyond my expectations. Every guest personally came to us remarking how superb the food was. I highly recommend Feast Caterers for any event you may need a caterer for. I look forward to planning another event with Chef Anton.

Kim was wonderful to work with. To say she was flexible is an understatement. She was so accommodating and willing to go the extra mile to make your event exactly the way you want it. Grill Chef Chaz was a wonderful grill chef who grilled for three & 1/2 hrs straight keeping the food flowing smoothly with no bottlenecking. He was so personable and a pleasure to have at the party. My guests were so pleased they asked for the caterers card. I whole heatedly recommend they're services!

We are thankful that they were our caterers and would recommend them to others.

Jerry's Kitchen just catered my son's graduation party and everything was fabulous! The crispy chicken sandwiches where huge and the cheesesteaks where tender and flavorful. The staff was super friendly and full of upbeat energy. My son's friends really got a kick out of the truck serving food in our driveway. Scott the owner made everything so easy for us.

Long story short found thumbtack online when searching for a drop off caterer for Thanksgiving less than 2 weeks prior to event. Eric called almost within minutes of my post. I took a day to talk things over with the family then called Eric back to hire Holy Smokers BBQ and Catering for my event. Price VERY reasonable; delivered on time; hot and ready to eat buffet style Salad was accompanied by their HOME MADE dressing;.Turkey was moist and tasty(even carved already);Pork loin best I have ever tasted ;.cornbread stuffing, greens and mac n cheese cooked perfect. The home made apple pie was out of this world; The sock it to me cake was even great for breakfast the next morning! I feel blessed to have found Holy Smokers BBQ. No dishes no cooking ! Best Thanksgiving in a long time. I will be calling them to book another family meal real soon. Wish I could give them 10 stars

I give two thumbs up for Enjoi Catering! I made a last minute decision to throw an Anniversary Party For My In-laws and Enjoi Catering came through for me and I was able to concentrate on my guest list and decorations. I gave them my request and They handled everything else. I was even able to sample my menu. My Menu consisted of Lamb Chops, Asparagus, Lobster Maccaroni, Crab Cakes and Shrimp Salad. Everything was delicious. With the Holidays coming up I'll definitely be in touch with Enjoi Catering. 👍👍

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!
