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.
We were thrilled with Hog Day Afternoon Catering!! The food was to die for!! Everything was so good, really impressive!! Thank you!!
We hired Anton for my grandmother's 90th birthday dinner and everything was great! We couldn't have asked for a better experience.
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!
I had the pleasure of working with Allison, she came to my house and gave me cooking lessons. She was very patient and fully explained everything she did. I learned so much from these lessons. I am now able to prepare gourmet food in my own kitchen. My husband and family are thrilled! If you want to learn some new things, even starting from scratch call Allison today, she in amazing!
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.
I have had the pleasure of attending a few of Deirdre's catering events. The appetizers and main course were exceptional as was the food presentation.
I would like to thank John Gale and his staff for the wonderful stations and hors d’oeuvres prepared for me, my husband, and our 50 guests at our housewarming party on John gave us an extremely reasonable price quote and then went above and beyond our expectations. The food was delicious and substantial, and we got so many comments on how amazing everything tasted. The guests particularly loved the BBQ pull pork sliders, the wonderfully seasoned grilled chicken BLT sandwiches, and the spicy deviled eggs! John listened to us every step of the way and made sure to give us what we wanted and more. He was easily accessible—by email, phone, text, and in person (how many people could say they are able to reach their caterer at 11 p.m. at night?). We were able to relax at our party because John and his staff took care of everything (I cannot describe what a great feeling it is to just enjoy the party and know that we didn’t need to worry about anything). We can see John's unparalleled passion for what he does and his sense of pride in serving others. We look forward to many more events with John Gale and his wonderful staff
I hired Catering by J Wicks for my husbands surprise 50th birthday and it was a wonderful experience! The food was fabulous and the staff was awesome! They were on time and such a pleasure to deal with. They were attentive to all of my guests needs and anticipated all of my needs as the host. I will definitely hire them again for future events and I highly recommend them! Marie Tobin
Catered Large wedding. Food was outstanding and service was great! Highly recommend Ma'idah Catering
We hired Classic Diner Catering for a store event and was extremely pleased with the food and service. We will certainly work with their team again!
Toni and her family and staff made our event wonderful. We were serving about 60 friends at our home and the food was fabulous and plentiful. Toni worked with me to plan exactly the type of event I had hoped for. Her staff were professional and personable and really made the evening special.
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!
They were very professional and the food was amazing. I have recommended them to a few of my friends and they all have booked them for their upcoming events. Josette also works with your budget but what made me choose her company was for the work they do for special needs children and their families. She turned her lost into something positive. Keep up the great work
Mo’s Tasty Explosions Catering created a wonderful experience for my retirement. The quality of the food was hot, fresh and delicious. Not only was the food delicious but the desserts did not disappoint. Highly recommend.
Great service, very personable and a joy to work with!
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. :)
The food was delicious and very flavorful and the service was great from the whole Sister's soul food team. They showed up on time and set everything up in a timely matter. I highly recommend Sister's for any type of event your having.
The food is always delicious, well balanced and service provided is always exceptional. Thank you!
