Chef and his team were excellent. Our event was not a typical event and he coped with it superbly. I do the same event every year and the amount of rave reviews from my guests about the food and the service was unprecedented. I will not hesitate to book chef in again or to recommend him and his team.

Best value you could get in a wedding catering company! Quick basic info on my wedding since yours might be different: Late May wedding in Maryland, 7-hour reception with cocktail hour and dinner, approx. 100 guests, Manor, garden & tented reception setting, buffet dinner including a mix of food and drinks representing the cultures of the bride & groom (salvadoran, thai, new orleans, baltimore). Just two days after our wedding day I am feeling so good about the decision we made in booking Top of the City Catering. Maribel and her team were absolutely fantastic and we received soooo many compliments on our food, desserts, and cocktails, which were all provided by Top of the City. They had also done a great job of setting up décor for the guest tables, around the venue, and for the buffet and bar areas. In addition, the service throughout the day and night was phenomenal and we (bride & groom) always felt taken care of. For planning, we wanted a rustic, elegant feeling and they did a great job of presenting us ideas that were aligned with our vision. Top of the City Catering is a smaller catering business, but that does not make it any less in quality. When we were first looking into Top of the City I was a little leery because it was much more affordable and it usually is said, "You get what you pay for," but in this case that was NOT true at all. Maribel and her team are very responsive in communication, are very open and welcoming to your ideas and direction, and will always give suggestions from their expertise but still respect your wishes should you want something different. I really hope that Top of the City will gain momentum in growing its business and gaining the respect it deserves. Don't let the size of the company distract you from the amazing service, quality of food, flexibility, and affordable price you will get from Top of the City catering. Get a consultation with them and see for yourself!

I genuinely can’t say enough good things about this business. I hired AC Catering for two events I held in June and July 2017. Everything was excellent! I was beyond happy with everything from the food, to the services, to the people I interacted with during the planning phase and the actual events. This small, family owned business actually exceeded my expectations. They have an extensive menu to choose from which allowed me to tailor both events’ meals appropriately. The pricing was great and the amount of food I received was more than enough. AC Catering received many compliments for the quality of their food at both of my events. I took a risk and hired them without having tasted any of their food, but I have to say there was no need for worry. The food was also delicious! Both my guests and I enjoyed every bite. The serve and clean up service was also top notch. George Sullivan and his staff were extremely attentive to my needs during my banquet. They helped to ensure that the dinner ran smoothly, and cleanup was quick and efficient. I can't leave this review without noting that it was a great pleasure working with George Sullivan (principal owner/operator) when coordinating my needs. He was very responsive to the myriad of questions I had, extremely flexible as I proposed changes for my event, and just an extremely nice guy. I am so glad I found this business. I will definitely be using AC Catering if I have any catering needs in the future.

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!!!

Richard was a real pleasure to work with from the first phone call to the end of a very successful party. He was very helpful with his advice on our menu and with the guidance on the beverage purchases for a party our size (50,) He and Linda (the bartender) arrived on time and had the food laid out and the cooking stations and bar set up in plenty of time to start serving some early arriving guests. He circulated with the guests to make sure everyone was happy and had what they wanted and checked in with me throughout the evening to make sure all was going well from my perspective. Richard made crab cakes on the spot and they were a favorite. He also made delicious quesadillas on the spot, as well. His meatballs, chicken satay and stuffed mushrooms were all gobbled up. I overheard a couple of guests praising the peanut sauce and expressing interest in eating it by the spoonful:) All of the dips he provided were delicious as well. And the mini cheesecakes and cookies were also very good. All in all, Richard and Linda gave us a wonderful evening, without having to worry about a thing. To a person, I heard nothing but praise for the service and the food. I would hire Clever Catering again in a heartbeat:)

As a single male who can't cook and has no time to do so properly, my diet has suffered due to years of compromising meals like pizza and takeout Chinese, etc. Therefore I cannot tell you how happy I am about Scott and the service he provides. I save money over eating out and delivery and the food Scott makes is immeasurably better, healthier and prepared by an obviously talented chef. The food is amazing; the ingredients are fresh and clearly chosen with care; Scott is charming and delivers it to you direct. It's pretty great and highly recommended.

Mrs. Wright did a wonderful job catering my wedding on May 28th 2011. My wedding was 3 years ago and I still have family members come and tell me how good the food and service was. My reception dinner was buffet style and even though those types of dinners can get a little chaotic sometimes, she was able to keep every thing in order and running smoothly. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. Everything had a wonderful flavor to it and was seasoned perfectly. She had a loving sprirt that carred into her food. I will definitely use her services again and have already recommended her to co workers, friends, and family.

Columbia Chef is my go-to catering company. I use them for everything from a 10 person meeting, to a 150 person luncheon or dinner. They are always helpful, prompt and friendly. They respond quickly to requests for information, which helps me make informed decisions about my menu so that I can get on to the other parts of planning the event. Columbia Chef Catering is part of my event planning team.

I was very pleased with Made with Love Catering. She was on time, the set-up was fast. The food was warm at all times and most importantly she made enough food for the headcount I gave her. I even had a little bit to take home and enjoy the next day! Thank you! :)

Excellent customer service and great food! I contacted Chef Nikki because I wanted to reduce the amount of fast food my family was eating. She suggested prepared meals and quickly provided a menu of healthy meals for me to select from. The food was delicious, the portion sizes were generous, and everything was professionally packaged. Because of Chef Nikki I can serve home cooked meals that are as convenient as fast food. I will continue to hire her.

I hired Dani to cater a large work lunch at the non profit think tank where I work. She did an AMAZING job. She was extremely responsive, easy to schedule with (even when I sent her the wrong date), showed up early, and stayed throughout the lunch to make sure everything ran smoothly. Her food was delicious and easily catered to a range of dietary restrictions. About 90-100 people showed up (I had asked for catering for 70) and there were even leftovers. I can't recommend her enough! She has since come back for multiple events. Everyone at work has raved about her cooking.

I find wine interesting but intimidating. While my friends all have wine cellars, I stare cluelessly at the bottles in the store. When it was my turn to host happy hour I turned to Set The Table. Gabi planned the wine and food pairings with me, helped prepare and hosted a wonderful and entertaining tasting class. She brought knowledge, warmth and a wonderful sense of humor that lifted our evening to be a highlight that everyone still talks about. Thank you Gabi & Set the Table!
