My experience with Sara's Cooking was most positive. Our son and fiance sadly needed to postpone their wedding plans a few weeks before the actual wedding date. Because so many people had made plans, purchased airline tickets...etc. We decided to turn our lemons into lemonade by hosting a friends and family event on the date the wedding would have been. We had committed to having Sara's Cooking for the wedding and now we needed to switch gears in changing our venue. Sara graciously and easily accommodated our switch and do so with utmost kindness. The food was most incredible with an international flare, home cooked goodness and beautiful presentation. I purposely had chosen Sara's Cooking because her menu selections grabbed my attention right away. My husband and I were not disappointed and neither were our guests. The chefs are topnotch, pay careful attention to detail, friendly, fun and were most accommodating to all our needs as we hosted our gathering. I will always recommend them and use them again for future events.

Daniel is an accomplished chef and caterer. We have hired him for graduation and dinner parties and each time he has made each event spectacular to the point where all the guests asked for his contact information. Daniel's has a real talent for creating, cooking, seasoning and presenting plates that never disappoint. We do not hesitate to recommend Daniel to others and would and will hire him over and over again.

We hired chef Colin for a bachelorette dinner. We requested a Cuban meal in honor of the bride and he exceeded our expectations. He was wonderful to work with! I would suggest him to everyone. He even brought the chef a little gift for the bride which was a very thoughtful. He was very friendly, professional, and the food was amazing! Thank you so much, Colin!

Lori, her partner Sam and her staff made my small event seamless. Lori and I were able to effectively communicate via email and text a half a dozen times in the span of 17 days which proved a tremendous value for me in terms of my time and energy. The team were prompt, professional, friendly, anticipated my needs and stayed on top of everything all night. They met and exceeded all my expectations and received rave reviews from my 50 guests. Chef Jim and Crew Debbie and Jim - I welcome you back anytime. It was so much fun to work with you. Chef Jim - The food and presentation was awesome and abundant. Thank you! Debbie and Jim - thank you for staying on top of the time and making it effortless for me to stay on schedule and stlll be able to enjoy the party with my guests.

Soraya and her team at SYB were amazing. Everything was perfect. After an initial preliminary plan on the phone, Soraya came to my house to plan the details of menu, serving, and set up. She came up with a creative menu for my Halloween party that was both fun in presentation and delicious. The signature cocktail was special and everyone enjoyed it. All of my guests were very impressed and raved about everything! Her team was attentive, friendly and professional. They came early in plenty of time to set up. I was able to relax and enjoy my party! They left all in good order and cleaned up. I highly recommend SYB and will use SYB with all my future parties.

Renee has to be one of the best chef's I've ever encountered in my life! Not only was the food incredible, but her personality and presentation was equally as good! Everything was flawless and our guests are still raving about the food! We are thrilled that we chose Renee and look forward to having her back for our next event. She truly is amazing!

I found Malone Catering on Thumbtack while assisting my son to find a caterer for his wedding. When I first saw the menus and prices I really thought I had to be misunderstanding, His prices are so reasonable that I could not believe he was in any way related to other wedding caterers. It seems that all wedding services have a 4X markup and we really needed to stay within a very frugal budget. I called Chef Marty and found him to be very easy to work with and very accommodating and I sent his info to my son immediately. The wedding last Sunday at Camp Kiwanee was beautiful and the guests raved about the delicious food. We had requested a buffet style and Marty and his staff did the serving. Absolutely wonderful. And I cannot say enough about his staff. They were so unobtrusive I never noticed them clearing after dinner but they did an incredible job. And every one of them was friendly and helpful and seemed happy to be there. I know my son and is new wife were extremely pleased with Malone Catering. We will not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a quality caterer at a reasonable price.

I absolutely recommend this bakeshop! I have so many good things to say :) Firstly, the owner was kind enough not only to have me come to her shop and taste test/consult but she also gave me cupcakes to take home to my now husband. Secondly, THEY WERE DELICIOUS! Not a single one was left. Finally, the prices are by far the best I found! Thank you

Mike cooked a beautiful and delicious meal for our bachelorette party. He was prompt, brought all his own equipment and ingredients, and cleaned everything immaculately. Mike was a fun addition to our celebration and was courteous yet charismatic. The meal was to die for, and Mike prepared a large menu while accommodating dietary restrictions. I feel confident that every guest at the party would hire Mike again. Of all the events that day, the chef was the best! Thanks, Mike!!

Let me start by saying, "Thank you to Chef Coe a me his team for going above and beyond to make sure my parents wedding anniversary was a fun fantastic success!" If your here, you've at least begun to feel the stress and pressure that planning a party can present. From the first conversation with Steve, my mind was put at ease. He and his team were prompt to reply to any questions and communicated with us thoroughly throughout the entire process. I had done some research on him and it seemed he had quite an extensive knowledge of an array of cuisines. Which was apparent as soon as we tasted the food he prepared. Amazing doesn't even begin to describe his food and all my guests agreed! When we asked how, his reply, " always fresh ingredients prepared with love and respect for the food." (A cute genuine response I thought) To top it all off they left my kitchen cleaner then when they arrived! Which was appreciated! We just had a few close friends and family for appetizers and an intimate meal to celebrate an important milestone for my parents, 50 yrs of marriage but Steve and his team we're so good attentive and respectful who would have thought they were cooking for royalty. My family and I cannot thank you enough and will be happy to refer you to anyone looking for services of that nature in the future. Sincerely, The Corelli Family

We had a wonderful experience with Chef Kevin. It was a real rare treat to be able to talk and watch a master chef in action. The food was remarkable and delicious but what was even better was his company. We had wonderful conversation and enjoyed his company immensely. We both felt that he was a member of our crazy family by the time he left. I can’t recommend this experience enough. We hope to do this again soon. Sincerely Barbara and Jim O’Connor.

Ryan is a consummate professional whose devotion to his craft resulted in inventive, inspired and absolutely delicious food. We had the pleasure of hiring Ryan for an intimate event we were hosting to celebrate our marriage and throughout the entire process he remained reliable and engaged—consistently inquiring about food preferences and making suggestions based upon our responses. Logistically, he was responsive and reliable. Communicating with him was simple and he would always answer our inquiries with expediency and professionalism. Moreover, Ryan has the creativity to assemble a fantastic meal with as little or as much specificity as is given. We had guests who were vegans, vegetarians, and gluten/lactose free, as well as adventurous omnivores and I can say with honesty that at the end of the event, the component of the event that we heard most complimented was the food (from guests of all preferences). I would not hesitate to hire Ryan again and would urge anyone to seek him out for any event in which a fantastic culinary experience would be warranted.
