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.

Matt was great for my event. From the start, he was very responsive and helped provide the list of what to buy. He also alleviated some of the planning by catering the appetizers which made it super helpful. We hired 1 server and 1 bartender-- which we definitely should've hired one more person for the amount of guests we had-- but the two were super helpful. Even when it was down pouring, Matt continued to help and serve guests. I would absolutely recommend Matt. If you are even thinking about having servers at your event, definitely go with Santisi Catering!

We booked Feast Cateres for my son's High School Grauation Party. I would first like to comment on Chef Anton's superior professionalism. He was very easy to talk to when planning our menu and answered all our questions. We had originally thought that we would have 90 people, but wound up having 124 RSVP. We were able to give Anton 2 weeks notice for the head count and Chef Anton had no problem accommodating the the increase of guests. The day of the event there were terrible storms and flash flooding. Anton did better then show up on time. He came a little early, which really put our minds at ease. Now, lets talk Food... All we can say is WOW! We got raves from all our guests. Everyone adored the fresh Brochetta, Chicken Parmesan, and the Penne in vodka sauce, However, the two big BIG hits of the night were the Pulled Pork Italiano and the Asian Dumplings. I generally shy away from pulled pork because it can get a little boring either in pork gravy or in a way too sweet BBQ sauce. Anton prepared the pulled pork with fresh Italian herbs and spices and it was moist and positively delectable. In fact, we took the left over pork to our church for a second Graduation Party on Sunday and it got raves from the 2nd crowd, too! The Asian dumpling with fresh ginger sauce were the real show stopper. My husband won't even order steamed dumplings in a Chinese restaurant, but could not stop eating Anton's home made dumplings. After both parties we had several requests for business cards and gave out a stack to many of our family and friends, so it goes without saying that we would definitely highly recommend Feast Caterers to anyone planning their next event. Thank you Anton for making our event most memorable. Wendy, Doug, Chad and Gabe Menz

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 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.

One word. Amazing! Chef Jay is truly one of a kind and was everything that we wanted in a caterer and more. He came to our rescue, for our wedding reception, after a very poor experience with another caterer. Chef Jay made us feel at ease and always available to answer any questions that we had. He worked with our budget and was the epitome of what it means to be a professional. The services at the reception were prompt, the menu was creative, and we are forever grateful to F.E.A.S.T. We have already recommended him to our friends and family. Simply put - outstanding!

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 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
