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.

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!

Allison has worked with me on many occasions teaching me the necessary tools to become a good cook. I felt very comfortable learning even the most basic skill such as using a knife properly, making simple and some not so simple sauces and also learning to put a menu together for a dinner party. I can say she is extremely patient, knowledgeable, and very talented. She really makes cooking, and creating delicious masterpieces look so easy. I've used Allison as a caterer for many different occasions. It's amazing to watch her make gormet dishes with ease for crowds of 12 or 100. She was a professional from start to finish and left my house as clean as she found it. Thanks Allison, I'm more comfortable in the kitchen however, I'm still going to use you for when I really want to impress family and friends.

I worked with Chef Jim to have a week of dinners catered for my team when we were in Wilmington for a trial. I actually reached out to him for another team first, only to have our case settle at the last minute. With that said, Chef Jim was flexible and we just moved our menu to the next group arriving a few weeks later. He was great about tailoring the menu to my request for healthy but tasty and we didn't miss the fat in any of the dishes we tried (normally we work out of hotels and use their in-house caterers, which means lots of heavy food with LOTS of fat and calories). With Chef Jim, we got lots of spices and flavors but didn't feel weighted down at the end of the meal. Chef Jim was punctual in getting everything set up and then returning later to tear everything down. I will definitely reach out to him for another menu next time I have a team in Wilmington.

We really liked S&B's set up at our wedding to make it a beautiful reception! The staff were friendly and very professional. Sodiah was especially flexible with the plans and easy to work with which helped to make the day go perfectly. The food was also great! 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.

Elite Flavors Catering did an awesome job catering our wedding! He was more than accommodating when it came to the needs of our guest. Chef John always responded with urgency and was very professional. We had a very hard time finding someone who would work with our budget but we found Chef John and his team and they had no problem doing everything we needed. Our guests really really loved the food. The BBQ Pork Sliders were a big hit! I want to thank Elite Flavors Catering for being apart of our special day and making it even greater for us !

I ordered 2 half pans (roast beef with gravy and 4 cheese pasta) for drop off for a First Communion party. The food was fresh and hot when delivered. The roast beef was tender and flavorful, the guests devoured it first. The pasta was really good as well. I highly recommend J Wicks for your next catering event!

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. :)
