Chef Kev made a great menu for our annual company picnic! All the guests thoroughly enjoyed the dinner and dessert. He was professional, friendly, and very accommodating!! I would definitely recommend him for other catering events and will keep him in mind for future occasions with our company.

Chef Serge did a great job preparing hot hors d'oeuvres and mini dessert for 30 guests at our holiday open house last weekend. He arrived in advance with two women to help serve and left our kitchen cleaner than when they arrived. He was respectful of our budget, quick to answer email, and made the whole experience of working together easy and enjoyable. Among the appetizers served: Chef Serge's chicken samosas with delicious (African inspired?) filling, shrimp scorpions with spicy sauce to die for and bread pudding were the big hits of the night. Merci Chef Serge!

Mercedes Jo catered a repast for my stepson today and it was fabulous. The food was delicious and plentiful, beautifully presented. Everyone was pleased by the variety and freshness of the sandwiches and the veggie spring rolls were just snapped up! The fruit, veggie and cheese platters were also lovely and fresh and the dessert selection topped off the event. In addition, Mercedes was so nice and easy to work with that she immensely eased a very stressful time for us. I highly recommend her.

Maribel and her team did a fantastic job making our cocktail hour and reception exactly what me and my husband wanted. Maribel worked with us to provide the menu we wanted along with providing suggestions. She was always very timely on her responses. She provided touches to the reception that made my life as a bride easier. In addition the food and dessert were excellent. I highly recommend her!

Denean's Party and Design are the most professional and personable event planners and decorators I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They helped me plan my daughter's first baby shower and the process went painlessly they did a wonderful job I would definitely hire them again and again. I had so many compliments on the decor and candy buffet they will definitely have more clients come their way. Thank you!

On a whim, I decided to use Thumbtack to find a caterer for my mom's 72nd birthday party. OMG. I am SOOOO glad that I did!! I have planned a number of parties in my day, and I have yet to find one with such great professionalism and wonderful customer service I experienced with AC Catering. First off, they can fix just about anything!! While I had a basic menu in mind, I was forced to rethink things based on the wide variety of options presented by AC Catering. Other caterers wanted me to come up with the menu initially without giving me an idea of their speciality items. With AC Catering, you can get ANYTHING from breakfast, lunch, dinner..including smoked pit grilled items. So, I contacted them with my initial thoughts for a menu. Within 2 days, I received a proposal from the owner, George. Pricing was perfect, even with delivery. Additionally, they provide utensils, plates, condiments, etc. I was pleased. I had to make a last minute change. George was able to accommodate my request with no hassle. I called him just to make sure this change wouldn't pose a problem. He said "No worries. I got you." And, he wasn't kidding. So, party day comes. I'm a bit nervous because I never tasted the food or visited his brick and mortar store. However, the previous reviews from Thumbtack customers were all stellar. After meeting George in person, I totally understand why the reviews are so stellar. George is extremely pleasant and engaging. He arrived on time and was totally prepared to set up everything. He shared some jokes with my brother. Gave compliments to the birthday girl. He even shared the history about his family business. This party was for 50+ people. So, everything had to be right. Let me just say that George and his team didn't disappoint! The greens (with smoked turkey), baked beans and rice were EXCELLENT. I've eaten a lot of rice in my day. But, can I tell you how fabulous the yellow rice is? Very delicious. For meats, I ordered bbq chicken and burgers. Again, everything was wonderful. You would think burgers would just be bland and lacking flavor. NOT AC Catering burgers. They were thick, juicy, and seasoned well. More than enough food was provided. In fact, I had to encourage guests to take home plates of food. The deviled eggs were tasty. However, they were a bit messy due to lots of filling. But, it was totally fine. My guests put the smash on them. All throughout the event, everyone had positive comments and asked "who catered the food?" I didn't hesitate to tell them about George and AC Catering. I HIGHLY recommend them. In fact, I'm trying to find another excuse to celebrate so I can utilize them again!! Thank you, George, for making my mom's birthday so great. You will be hearing from me again. May your catering business continue to grow. God Bless you and your family.

The experience was wonderful! The presentation in itself was awesome. Nicely set, worthy of a feature on a food network. The food was delicious. Breakfast consisted of waffles with a strawberry on top, scrambled eggs, home fries and fried chicken. Everything was well seasoned and definitely satisfied my appetite. Thanks Jackie!!!

We had Catering Reserved cater our company Holiday party and I cannot say enough about how wonderful this company is is. Dianna was so easy to work with. She took care of all my questions, concerns, and needs with phenomenal professionalism. Her patience with me while I was trying to organize a corporate event, waiting on final menu selections, head counts, and final approvals from the owners was unparalleled. Maritza was our event captain for the party and she and her staff were FANTASTIC! The servers and bartender were so sweet and friendly. Their attention to detail and willingness to help with last minute adjustments was such a blessing. The food was INCREDIBLE. Everything from the appetizers to the entrees and sides, right down to dessert, was SO DELICIOUS. I have never had so many employees come to me to express how great the good was. I am so grateful for Catering Reserved, not just for the amazing food, but for the truly fantastic staff, and for the tremendous and sincere effort in helping me put together a great 100+ person event. I cannot wait to have another reason to employ their services and I wholeheartedly recommend them for any event.

We hired Healthy Catering for a party at our home for 80 guests. Nasrin proposed a menu that included appetizers, entrees and desserts. Everything went well on the day of the event. Nasrin went the extra mile by making extra veg dishes that we didn't order. Our guests loved her vegetarian and non-veg dishes. Her food is wholesome and better than most restaurants that we've visited. I would definitely hire Nasrin again.

Sandra was fantastic! I hired her to prepare a gluten-free plated dinner for my parents' 60th birthday party - 6 adults and 2 preschoolers. She was pleasant to work with and efficient as we went back and forth on details and logistics. On the day of the event, she arrived with all the materials she needed and got right to work. My family was able to hang out and enjoy each other's company as Sandra cooked, set the table, plated and served the food, and cleaned up afterwards. And the food was fantastic! My sister-in-law raved about the flourless chocolate cake with vanilla bean whipped cream, "this is the dessert I didn't know I was waiting for my whole life!" Everyone really enjoyed the cuban salad with avocado and chicken enchiladas with mexican style rice and tomatillo salsa. And there were even leftovers! When Sandra left, the kitchen was nice and tidy and all the leftovers were labeled and put away in the fridge. What sets Sandra apart is her thoughtfulness: I really appreciated that she made sure everything was gluten free and even tested the recipe out ahead of time! She brought activity kits for the preschoolers. And she brought placemats and napkin rings as well.

Chef Giovanni is not only a creative and dynamic chef, he is also a warm person. I was so relieved to welcome Chef Giovanni at my house for my dinner party, he put me at ease with his calm demeanor and ideas. We had been exchanging emails and texts the week prior to the event, he was responsive unlike other chefs I had worked with in the past. Chef had also been tasked to provide a meal for a pescatarian, gluten-free guest, and a “no shell fish” guest. When Chef arrived, he took several inexpensive bouquets from Trader Joes and transformed them into stunning centerpieces for my dining room table. The entire dining room morphed into a chic bistro that looked like it should have been in the south of France as opposed to Maryland. Once the first guest arrived, the smell of bouillabaisse was permeating the house and the guests were excited by the aroma but also the drinks and amuse-boushe Chef had prepared for their arrival. The amuse-boushe was phyllo dough stuffed with spiced lamb. It was crunchy on the outside with flavors of raisins, spices and lamb on the inside. This was an exceptional way to start our culinary journey! Once the guests were seated and wine was poured, the appetizer was served. It was not my favorite combination of flavors but others seem to enjoy it. Next the main course, the bouillabaisse was served. I was stunned to see how beautiful the bouillabaisse was prepared; with cilantro and lime on top and was chocked full of lobster, crab, scallops, fish. My guests were asking him for the recipe for the rue and the steps to making such an intriguing meal. The dessert was also nicely done, my guests really enjoyed the presentation and the taste. Chef Giovanni talked about what he made, helped serve the guests. He also helped pour the wine and kept the night flowing. Chef Giovanni also left me with a spotless kitchen which was the perfect end to a perfect night. I am a customer very happy with a first-time experiment with inviting a chef into my home. I think it is a great way to entertain without breaking the bank. When you consider how much time and preparation that goes into an evening like this, I feel that Chef Giovanni provides quality ingredients and exceptional service for a reasonable rate.

I was in desperate need of a Caterer for my wedding and about 4 months before our big day, October 4, 2014, I found Mrs. Patricia Wright online. I read prior reviews on Ms. Wright and also interviewed other caterers, but after she invited my then future husband and me to test her food, I knew I had to have her for my wedding. Ms. Wright is honest, professional, personable and a JOY to work with. I trusted her and knew that I did not have to worry any longer. Not only is she professional, but, her food is "out of this world". She worked beyond expectations and everyone at my wedding gave compliments on how well the event took place and how delicious the food was. I can not thank Mrs. Wright enough for the outstanding job she did for our wedding.

International catering and Events really pulled out all the stops to make the wedding I attended an event for the ages. Customer satisfaction must be a priority because everything was spectacularly done. They added a personal touch to the event that made it extra special and all guests had to do was sit back, relax and enjoy!

I used this group for my sister's surprise (2nd time around) baby sprinkle (shower). The pair were prompt. The decorations and favors were so cute, and looked as if a lot of TLC was put into them. It was fun to learn about facials and to get some pampering. We got to select wine, and the company used local wineries, which I find really important as it shows me, they care about supporting small business, which I care about too. Overall, it was a fun event -- I like it for the convenience and all the little elements that made this party special. They also really catered to my sister, a.k.a the honoree. I would recommend the group.

Chesapeake Food Works has provided catering services to me through my position as Executive Assistant to the Headmaster of an independent Baltimore boys' K-12 school, since Jan 2007, at least. I initially worked with the owner, Amy LeVie, until roughly Oct 2011, through Coburn's Restaurant, where she was the catering manager. I began working directly with Chesapeake Food Works around Nov 2011 when Amy purchased the catering business and have maintained a consistent working relationship since that time. I do a tremendous amount of events planning and CFW has provided me with everything from a simple wraps/salads/desserts/drinks luncheon for three people up to a full buffet event for 300 people and everything in between. CFW has provided breakfasts, lunches, dinners, morning or afternoon snacks, and refreshments, of an ever changing variety over the course of the years. At times, they may be on campus several times during any given week. They are professional and provide a consistently high quality product. I never have to worry that they will not show up or they will forget things for an event. When I request a quote for an event, I generally receive a response within an hour or two and rarely wait even 24 hours. I have recommended them to just about every other department within my organization and many now use CFW on a consistent basis. In addition, I have also recommended CFW to friends and family members. If you are looking for a caterer who is reasonable, conscientious, dependable, and consistently provides great service and really good food, I would highly recommend that you use Chesapeake Food Works.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
