AJ the Owner and Executive Chef customized our menu. The word NO was never used by him. YES YES YES was always the answer to my every question and request. From his first response through Thumbtack, to the day of the event, he met all requests with Joy and Professionalism. He was always timely and a Man of his Word. AJ and his team on the day of the event executed everything from the set up to the break down smoothly and efficiently. He brought a clay oven, and a sugar cane processing machine to make many of the items fresh at the event. He worked very hard at the event to prepare custom ordered menu items. He was very focused and very friendly to all the guests. Preparing for the event he went out of his way to meet all the special requests. He even purchased specific colors for all the linens, table cloths, table overlays and napkins to enhance the theme of the event. The food menu was outstanding, sensational, fabulous and amazing. All the food was hot, fresh and was filled with flavor and great taste.. The servers always kept refilling the serving dishes. The salads, condiments, and accent dishes were all prepared with fresh ingredients. The experience with Red Dot Catering was SUPREME. I will definitely be calling AJ again. AJ and his Team made our event very memorable for everyone who was Blessed to attend. Thank you AJ for everything. There are not enough words of Gratitude to express how Grateful we are to work with such a Man of Integrity. Many Blessings to you and Red Dot Catering. God Bless You. April

I cant say enough good things about Kiefs Catering. He was on time and very diligent. Very positive when I spoke with him over the phone. Event was for a 30 year high school reunion with over 100 guests. Chef Kief made his job look easywhich in turn made me look good. Thank you, Chris E.

We hired Kelli with Arcodoro after meeting several other caterers. She was well organized, personable and we felt that our wedding reception was her top priority, no matter how many other clients she may have had. She met us at our reception venue and asked us questions about what we wanted our day to be like and came up with so many ideas that we would have never thought of. From our first meeting we liked Kelli and felt very comfortable with her. She only had two months to put our reception together and never made us feel like that was an issue. She helped us come us with a menu that was varied and delicious and was beautifully presented! The chef made a fantastic pumpkin ravioli with a cream sauce that was the hit of our reception! Kelli and her staff went above and beyond in setting up our venue and making it look even more beautiful that we had imagined. They set up all of the tables from tablecloths to decor to the lighting of so many candles. Our cake table and guest book table were simply amazing and Kelli even took charge of setting up and arranging our cupcake cake because the cake vendor arrived too soon and the cake table was not ready yet. Our cake looked EXACTLY the way we wanted it, even though Kelli had only seen a picture of it one time. She was the go to person for all of our other vendors and she made us feel like we had nothing to worry about. The staff was awesome as well, and everyone with Arcodoro made sure that my bride and I were taken care of all evening! We truly felt like everything was under control and we were able to be the guests of honor at our reception. Kelli is not just a wedding caterer, she does it all...and makes it look effortless. That's the kind of service that I will recommend to everyone we know. Kelli, Thank you for everything you and your staff did to make our wedding day the best day ever for both of us! The venue looked fabulous, the food was great and all of our guests just raved about what a great time they had! We heard over and over that it was the best wedding reception they had ever been to. YOU ROCK and we can't thank you enough for going above and beyond for us and allowing us to enjoy our reception and guests without worrying about a thing! You provided us with personal service from start to finish and we won't hesitate to contact you again next time we need the level of service you offer. Mollie and Kimberlie Hines

Truly outstanding! Exceeded our high expectations. Mark is a credit to chefs everywhere. The special birthday dinner for my wife, family and friends was fantastic (the oo's and ah's from our guests at every course was telling). He tailored it perfectly to our request. The cost was also spot on to our stated budget. How he managed to do all of that was a marvel. A real pleasure listening to him explain as he cooked; encyclopedic knowledge of foods and cooking. His lovely assistant/wife, Louise, was just as special and kind in her service to all of us. I could not give a higher recommendation. These two are a rare find.

Chef Roy is low key and easy going. No drama. No hassle. He responded to my brief (a birthday dinner for 40-50 people doing Mexican food) specifically and didn't just send me some preprepared materials on what was on offer like some of the other chefs responding to the request. He came by the venue in advance to site check, then showed up on time and prepared. The food was just as ordered and delicious.

Chef Steven was very responsive, professional and punctual. He delivered and set up the food for a company lunch. We had Grilled Salmon, Grilled Mesquite Chicken Breast, Wild Rice, Sweet Pepper Corn, Seasoned Vegetable Medley, Salad, Rolls, and Lemon Pound Cake. Most everything was tasty and flavorful. I would recommend Three Little Kitchens. Thanks again!

Chef T and Raven were wonderful. They worked closely with us on the menus. They brought samples for us to try and adjusted the menu to our liking. They were exceptionally organized when they arrived and provided everything required for the party (down to bringing their own dish soap so as not to use mine). They cleaned up as they went along and left my home in perfect condition. The food was delicious and a fun time was had by all.

Chef Devown was a consummate professional, and the entire process from start to finish was fantastic. Communication between us was prompt and professional. We were able to easily come up with a great menu within our budget . He showed up on time and completely prepared - and the meal prep was done without any thought or effort on my part. The food was amazing! My guests are still talking about it. I would not hesitate again to hire Devown for any dinner party or private catering event.

I had a themed event and Mason's Creative Catering (MCC) exceeded my expectations on food, creativity, and service. Kevin Mason is one of the most respectable chefs who takes into account the budget he is given to ensure that he, not only stays well within the budget, but also by creating such high quality, and tasty courses. It was my first experience with this company and I will definitely highly recommend to try MCC for your next event. ~Mia D. Taylor

Met with Chef Joy yesterday for a Fajita tasting for our upcoming wedding in a few months! She was very professional, very polite, very kind and above all....had AMAZING food! My (soon to be) husband is a VERY picky eater. Especially when it comes to rice and meat and he had zero complaints on either. We booked that day and look forward to working with Chef Joy at Laniers Catering for our wedding in a few months!
