Tony Lawrence prepared an amazing array of Asian and other global dishes for my 80th birthday party in our home on September 19, 2014. We had 18 guests and they all loved Tony and his great staff. We have received nothing but compliments from our guests for a great party with delicious food and wine. No one left hungry and my family got to enjoy all the left overs. Tony was both efficient and flexible in the planning and preparation , with lots of fun and creative ideas. Of all the recommended chefs we spoke to , Tony was the only one who made a site visit before we even committed to use his services. He then made another visit closer to the date. Menu was impressive and we will definitely use Tony for our future catering needs.

The private catering service we received for our Super Bowl party was as amazing as the food and the food was out of this world! The homemade bleu cheese dressing for the wings was unlike any other we've ever had. Chicken tenders encrusted with pretzel die for. And the brisket? Seemed like it was literally melting in our mouths.

I can only say good things about my experience with Chef Myles. Everything was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. I was unsure of the menu and Chef Myles helped me plan what to serve and the party goers loved every single item. I will use Chefs 2 Go Catering for all my catering needs!!!!!!

I used S&B Event Concepts and Catering for a last minute in-home affair and I needed catering quick. It was my first time using a catering company. I setup a last-minute romantic in-home catered dinner for my wife and me. I got rid of the dogs and the kids. I shampooed the carpets and had a long-desired present ready for my wife when she walked in. In addition, when my wife walked in the S&B hostess / waitress and chef were standing (professionally dressed) adjacent to the dining room table. My wife was very surprised. The multi-course dinner, desert and event went perfectly. I worked with Sodiah from start to finish. She talked to me on the phone at times I liked -- at odd hours on occasion as she responded immediately once to my late-evening email. She always responded quickly to my calls. The food menu was huge. I picked out just the stuff I wanted. And, she kept it within my budget and not once suggesting items to raise my spending. We double checked all items and expectations including but not limited to the food selections and preparation desires, timing, supplies, etc. The table setup was complete with fine china and silverware, candles, white linens and other stuff to make it look very special. They used our kitchen and left it spotless (including the trash removal) when they left. She and her team were great to work with. They were pleasant, on-time and very professional. They remained out of site. They exceeded my expectations. They will be my go-to for in-home catering and catering for other events. I will call further in advance next time. I promise.

Gene catered my 35th birthday. The food was outstanding. All my guests were very impressed with the food and amazing service. What stood out besides the food, was the way Gene & Miranda explained to my guests what type of food & accompaniments they had & what to pair it with, it made the meal that much more delicious. I highly recommend Gene Philbin & Peculiar Culinary for what ever your food needs maybe.

Tony has done parties for me, some under difficult conditions, and created some great memories for me and my friends. Whether its a pool party or a sit down dinner the food and service where excellent. I especially appreciated how hard he worked with me in terms of my budget and expectations. He makes the planning fun and the event something special..

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Michael at Michael’s Event Catering for our wedding in October 2012. From the first day I contacted Michael, he was incredibly communicative and easy to work with. He was very willing to work with our budget, and went above and beyond with suggestions to help make our big day nicer for our guests and easier for us. Even though we were planning our wedding from out of state, the catering service was planned and implemented with grace and ease. From random nervous-bride questions to last-minute requests to day-of unplanned issues, Michael made it all happen for us. I even got a day-before-the-wedding pep talk from him when I began to wonder if it everything would work out as planned! I have never been to a wedding where I heard so many people comment on the charming wait/bar staff and the wonderful food. Even now, months later, I am getting compliments on the delicious meal that was served. Again, Michael and his staff went above and beyond to make my wedding day beautiful and memorable, and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. A million thanks to Michael’s Event Catering, for a job so incredibly well-done.
