We are very grateful to have found Chef AJ as our wedding caterer. He exemplifies culinary talent and professionalism backed with years of experience in the catering and wedding industry. He is personable and very pleasant to work with outstanding problem solving skills. We had about 180 guests for a seated dinner. My husband and I did not have a wedding planner but with the assistance, patience, and experience from Chef AJ our wedding turned out spectacular with guests raving about the food! The table settings with napkins and dinnerware were beautifully set up. Thank you Chef AJ and to your team for executing our magnificent wedding dinner! We highly recommend Red Dot Cuisine!
This was the best catering service we could have ever chosen. Everything was so elegant yet professional. Food was awesome, chef and staff get thumbs up. Will definitely hire again!
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.
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
Lionel came to our house and cooked a wonderful dinner. He made our anniversary evening very special. He was very professional and is quite an excellent chef.
Keif's Catering was perfect for our event - they were on time, the food was great, and he had interesting options for our budget that really stood out from other catering choices that we saw. We would definitely hire Keif again in the future.
Chef Daniel and Heirloom made my daughter's wedding the perfect event. Not only was the food some of the best I have ever put in my mouth, they were so helpful in the overall organization and flow of the event. I will definitely use them for all our catering needs and highly recommend them to anyone.
I had a great experience with Chef B and team. The menu options are delicious and the chef made great recommendations to fit our needs. As a planner you look for vendors that you can trust and that will represent your brand well. Chef B and team exceeded my expectations... true professionals. I highly recommend their team for all of your catering needs!
Chef Sallie recently catered our wedding reception with a variety of appetizers and drinks. The entire process from the initial tasting, to the food delivery and set up was always professional. As our wedding approached we had to contact Chef Sallie with several questions and she always responded quickly with answers. Guests raved about the appetizers. (The goat cheese tarts are amazing!) Chef Sallie is very easy to work with and we highly recommend her.
Chef Devown is an amazing chef! His flavor is always on point and he has been able to work with me on any budget i have had. His fish taco's are amazing and my family just loves his chicken parm.
Honestly Chef Mark and his staff were so professional , the food and the creativity of the food was declious. He was professional at every point from the beginning to the end. EVERYONE at my daughter’s grad party was asking where did you find the Chef! All adults and high schoolers were very pleased with the food. I’m going to have Chef Mark over to my home for a girl’s night seafood cooking class in the near future!
Qmami catered my daughter's team party and the food was excellent. The delivery was right on time and everyone raved about the food. I would definitely use them again.
Great Chef...Awesome Taste!
Kelly is an amazing chef and very accommodating and dependable. Her passion for cuisine is evident in each meal. We used Kelly’s services for about 6 months on a weekly basis. She is kind, courteous and above all a talented chef! My husband and myself were on a very strict diet and her meal prep and delivery made it easy to follow and tasty! Kelly will be filling a hefty dessert order at our corporate Christmas party this December. If you’re looking for a talented chef that really cares about her craft and clientele...the search is over!
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.
I had a fantastic experience and an inventive and creative meal created by Chef Josue. The creativity of the food, the ambiance of the setting, and the quality of the ingredients made it a memorable night. A meal of this quality at a restaurant would have cost much more, but to have it with new friends in a home setting was that much more meaningful and something I definitely want to try and recommend to friends and family. Bravo!
Chef K's Creations made our wedding cake. It was just what we had wanted and we couldn't have been happier with it!!
I hired Chef Saga as a private Chef for a special occasion and she did awesome. She works very quietly, fast and clean. This was an event for 50 guests and she served amazing food. Here are some pictures.
Food was delicious. On time, clean and very professional, not to mention fast. Chef GT is for sure an expert. Will hire him again for sure!!
