If you want delicious food at an affordable price, you want Chef Kev! I’m am surly the pickiest eater there is, but Chef Kev got the best of me! We hired Chef Kev to provide the food for a networking event that we hosted. As an event planning company, we have had the chance to taste food from many different caterers throughout the Maryland, DC and VA area, but Chef Kev is among the best! His food made all the difference for our event and we cannot wait to begin referring our clients too him! (I should also mention how professional, and neat he was. He left the venue looking better than when he got there!)

Private chef for a wedding/baby shower for a client with special food requests (Autoimmune Paleo Diet). Chef was eager to work with food restrictions and had a fantastic attitude. Guests loved the food and raved about their interactions with the chef. Would hire again in a heartbeat.

I cannot recommend Eleven Courses more. I worked with Megan as my coordinator and she was such a delight! She was very professional and easy-going to work with and answered all emailed questions quickly--I can honestly say that throughout the process I felt I was in good hands. I never felt uncomfortable asking about pricing or any strange questions or requests we had and the guidance Megan provided was much appreciated. We traveled a couple hours to Owings Mills, MD (we live in Springfield, VA) to attend our tasting at their offices. We met Jim and Megan in person, and the tasting decided it for my husband and me. We immediately knew these were the caterers for our wedding. The food was incredibly delicious and now, several weeks out after the wedding, our guests are still talking about how tasty everything was. Their prices are amazingly reasonable, especially given how beautifully presented and delicious their meals are--they have an affordable price point, however, the service and food delivered is that of the super-pricy, high-end caterers (services which I often use in my firm and am well-familiar with). It was very much appreciated how they didn't nickel and dime us and were proactive in helping out and finding ways to make the wedding special. We consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to have hired Eleven Courses for our caterers and intend to hire them again, should we plan another huge celebratory bash.

My parents' 50th wedding anniversary party was a special celebration made all the more enjoyable because of the wonderful menu and service provided by Chef Myles and his team. Chef Myles was easy to work during the planning stages and was the consummate professional on the day of the event. I whole-heartedly recommend Chef Myles and the Chefs2GoCatering Team and look forward to working with them again in the future.

Kokamo's catered my tenth wedding anniversary dinner. The friendliness and professionalism of his staff was impeccable! Any questions or special requests we had was handled smoothly by Chef Perkins' team. The seafood macaroni and cheese was awesome!

We can not express into words the phenomenon job that Extravagant Affairs did for our wedding on 11/05/2016. From the time that we chose them to handle our catering needs to the very end of our special day, their team handled every detail with the highest level of class and commitment. Our guests are still talking about the excellent food selection. If you are looking for elegance, price affordability, and professionalism, I would definitely recommend them

Scott is fantastic and continually goes above and beyond. We planned our 25 person wedding weekend entirely from out of town, and couldn't have done it without Scott. From our first emails and Skype conversations, Scott made us feel heard and cared for -- something we definitely did not feel from the other four chefs we met with. He provided clear menu options and helped tailor the perfect selections, including accommodating our halal and vegetarian guests. Months later, our guests are still raving about the meal Scott prepared and entire experience he delivered. Beyond catering the evening, Scott and his team helped us evaluate the venue, find and acquire the linens & place settings, pick out & deliver flowers, and purchase food for the rest of the weekend. We highly recommend Scott as both a chef and as a trusted advisor with a big heart.

I've been to a few events that Ms. Logan was bar tending and I was very pleased. She was very professional, pleasant and she definitely knew her craft. I hire her for my wedding and the reception was turned up, largely due to her and her expertise behind the bar. She even created drinks named after me and my wife. Hire her if you want a good experience.

Everything about our experience with Sandra and her staff was superb. We had a 50th wedding anniversary buffet dinner with a Hawaiian theme for 26 family and friends. Her creativity, responsiveness and attention to detail was evident in all phases of the day and evening. Our guests raved about the menu and the ladies who prepared and served the meal. When they left everything was cleaned up superbly. We highly recommend Creative Visions !

Karen Wilder provided catering for my New Years Eve 2016 wedding. The food was excellent! Everything was well seasoned, tender, and flavorful. My wedding did not have a traditional kitchen with a stove, we used chafing dishes. Nevertheless, the food was hot as though it had just come out of the oven! We had a cocktail hour where her staff passed around appetizers - the lamb chops, sushi, and Maryland crab cakes were exceptional! The bartender was quick to serve drinks, and made very good drinks. She also delivered drinks to guests' tables. The staff cleaned up afterwards, and contained any left over food for us after the event. You cannot go wrong with this food! Top notch!

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.
