I wanted a meal service to deliver several meals a week to my elderly in-laws. AJ has been outstanding. They are very pleased with the quality of the meals and the size of the serving. Highly recommended.
Thorough review- tasting and actual event. I had the pleasure of hiring Chef Roy for my first personal chef experience for my Wife and I's anniversary. Based on his great reviews and thorough quote response, I decided to request a tasting for his shrimp creole. Chef Roy arrived on time, professional, and seemed to love the art of cooking. I didn't think I would finish the generous sample tasting (free of charge BTW) but by the time we finished chatting, there was no more to take home! Fresh shrimp and vegetables. I hired him right on the spot and we began shaping the menu. I wanted my wife to have a little bit of everything, so I ordered his crab stuffed mushrooms, seafood gumbo, shrimp creole, and three desserts. The day of the event, Chef Roy arrived 1.5hr ahead of scheduled dinner time to prepare. He allowed us to have personal conversation while he prepared our meal which was great. As a complimentary thank you for our business, Chef Roy prepared boudin balls as an appetizer. Sooo good! Sadly, we didn't have room for desserprofessional! comment on that! We plan to eat it tomorrow :) He used gloves and lightly cleaned as he went along. Very personable, yet professional. Great experience!
Kevin was able to provide a meal for 30 people with only three days notice. We had an awards party for our football team and he was able to provide a hearty and delicious meal for us. He also provided delivery, plates, napkins, and disposable food warmers at no extra charge. Kevin was great to work with and he returned my emails and calls promptly. Mason's Creative Catering met all of my needs and exceeded my expectations. I will definitely use their services again.
Mark is a talented chef and very easy to work with. My wife and I rented a beach house and wanted to provide a special meal for 30 friends and family. Mark offered a wide variety options and on the evening of the event, every last detail went according to plan. He and his team arrived on time, made the last minute preparation to the extensive meal they had begun preparing in their own kitchen and then served it with grace and simplicity. The food was very good and when it was over they cleaned everything and left quietly. I will look for an occasion to use Mark again. It was very easy to arrange and the results were exactly as expected.
What a fun night! Chef Lionel prepared a meal for my husband and I to celebrate his birthday. Everything was delicious and we enjoyed getting to watch him at work. Thank you for a great night!
My wedding food was a hit! Keif's dishes tasted like home-cooked meals rather than normal bland wedding food which is why I loved Keif! We had baked chicken, green beans, rice, and fish. The menu varied so everyone got a little bit of what they wanted. The price was also very cheap compared to most catering companies for 200 guests. Lastly, we paid for two extra servers/waiters and they were also not pricey compared to other catering companies. Please do not look past Keif's Catering when planning your wedding! He is the best caterer with the best attitude and best wedding food. Thank you Keif and great luck with all your future endeavors!!
Chef Brandon provided a delicious luncheon for 10 of my friends in celebration of my 50th birthday. We enjoyed the meal he prepared and served, it was health happy for all to enjoy. His knowledge & professionalism in the kitchen showed thru in the delicious entree. Looking forward to our next celebration to hopefully have him available to cater our get-together.
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.
Great experience. Food, service and quality were fabulous. Highly recommended.

The flavor and presentation were amazing, looked and taste as if it took days to create. I will definitely use her services again. Keiry thank you for putting my family's thought and prayers in your hands.
MAM has been preparing my meals for about six months now. He is very professional, flexible, and reasonably priced, and delicious! Thanks for helping me keep my eating on track!
Melissa is great at what she does. I was able to share with her my specific goal for eating better. She understood my needs and worked diligently to create a custom menu, provide shopping list and prepare my meals. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for someone to create healthy, flavorful meals.
The food was good and the service was excellent. I have no complaints about the timeliness of my meal or the professionalism of the cook. She is very assertive and passionate about her cooking which made me enjoy her service even more. I would definitely recommend the linguine shrimp scampi with a salad! If you're looking for a good meal go to Nae Nae's Kitchen!!
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!
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!
We hired Chris to cook for my husband's birthday. He listened to our likes and dislikes and served a beautiful meal created just for our party. The food was amazing; with each guest commenting on how much they loved it. I would definitely recommend Chris
Cici's meals are quite the experience. Creative and always very delish, her meals can't be beat. From the sides, main dish, even the sauces are exceptional. Like her FB page and every week you will see what she creates. I highly reccemond you give her creations a try!
Our family is trying to eat healthy; and this type of service helps keep us on track. It's better than My Fit Food because it's more variety on the food options. Plus, it's the convenience of having a personal chef prepare the food in your home.
Last year at Thanksgiving my husbands family was coming in and I had been sick, so I contacted Elsa to see if she could prepare a meal for the first night of arrival of the whole clan. She prepared lasagna and spaghetti with meatballs a fantastic salad with her own dressing and bread. The meal was a success with my family and was a great start for the week long visit with family. I don't know what we would have done without her. In March of this year my inlaws were coming in to see her brother get married and I called Elsa to prepare a meal, my mother-In-law is very healthy and believes we should all be, well Elsa prepared salmon, steamed vegetables and a salad and it was so good, that my daughter-in-law who only eats fried shrimp went back for 2nds infact I think we all did including my mother-in-law. And she prepared as a surprise chocolate strawberry cake to die for. I would definitely recommend Catering Foodie, Elsa is the best.
Chef Diva prepared an intimate yet amazing meal for myself and several others. Her choices are healthy yet flavorful. Additionally, she offers an exceptional customer service experience.
