We hired Mermaid Catering for our 10 year class reunion and were very pleased with our decision. From the start, Julie was flexible and responsive. She worked with our limited budget and designed a diverse menu that gave the appearance of a much more expensive spread. The food was delicious and people raved about it. Every detail was included down to sauces for each item, mini silverware, etc. The chalkboard tray was impressive, especially since our entire spread was disposable. Actually, the presentation overall was amazing. I would definitely recommend Julie and her team to anyone looking for a quality meal for 10 or 500!
Brandon did a wonderful job providing meals for our staff, including making sure that individuals like myself with food allergies always had a safe meal. His system of keeping track of allergies was also very helpful, when I wasn't able to get food myself I could have a staff member tell him who they were getting food for and he was able to reference my allergy list and prepare a box meal that he knew would be safe.
I was very satisfied with the services I was given with Colby Paige Catering. I hired them to come to my parents house and serve an intimate dinner for 2. My parents were more than satisfied with the food and services they were given. They loved the food and said it was excellent. Their chef, Jamila Wilson, was very nice and neat. She came with all of her own supplies and her own plates. She left with our kitchen exactly how it was before she came. She was also very fast and had the food prepared in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend this catering services to others and would hire them again!
Excellent customer service! Jennifer provided a number of pre-prepared meals for my father of which he thoroughly enjoyed. The pork tenderloin was amazing! Jennifer is professional and personable and very accommodating. Would highly recommend!!
Chef Maia's cooking skills knows no bounds. There are no dishes that can stop her. I have had the privilege of sampling her gourmet meals as well as her pastries....everything has simply been exquisite! I will continue to use Tie My Apron for all of my culinary delights. Chef Maia is pleasant, very detail oriented and a delight to have cook for you! I am glad to have the opportunity to let everyone else know what they have to look forward to!
They were very professional and sweet. The food was so good better than we could of every imagined. We tried new things and were not disappointed one bit. I will be using them again for another event next month. I would recommend them for any event you may be having. I appreciate them creating a memory forever. Excellent service and food.
Troy & Team, Its not quite one month later and we are still talking about the amazing presentation Personal Chefs in Box prepared for our reception. You were able to accommodate a lovely buffet in a private home that truly exceeded what I envisioned! Everyone working the evening maintained the perfect balance of professionalism with a personal touch and was more than willing to assist with all the minute details, even with last minute particulars I forgot to discuss ahead of time. The hot and cold courses were all delicious and left our guests raving. Judging from the amount of people who told me they went back for seconds and thirds, the seafood rolls and crab cake station were huge hits!! My personal favorite was the pork tenderloin and mango salad. Fantastic!! All told, we continue to receive compliments about how outstanding the food was and how enjoyable it was not only to taste a little of everything, but also to speak to you and listen to you describe the menu and preparation notes. Thank you for being a part of our special evening. Lea & Tom Weiss (August 14, 2014)
The Food is top notch! I've ordered quite a few meals from Up In Smoke Catering LLC and I have been completely satisfied with the taste and the quality of the food EVERY time. Great portions for the price. I highly recommend Up In Smoke Catering LLC to all my friends. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed. Jason T.

I contacted Alyse about in-home cooking for a special occasion and throughout the initial consultations whether it was via email, text, or voice, she was always prompt, clear, and had great follow through. We planned the surprise event for a group of ten people and when a last-minute change occurred, she easily accommodated a menu for three of the ten individuals who didn't eat seafood. For a group this size, she brought some help, and things went off without a hitch! Alyse was great with the meal planning, cost estimation, shopping, preparation, cooking, and post event clean-up. She started with homemade garlic biscuits and a herb butter that were marvelous! This served as a bit of an appetizer while the meal was being prepared. The first course was shrimp and grits, the second course was a Seafood Etouffee, and for desert, a Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee paired with Bourbon and Pecan Ice Cream. SLURP!! We really enjoyed the conversations with her and she and her assistant made the evening very memorable, certainly enjoyable, and tasty ! In case you're asking yourself the critical tell-tale question, Would he hire her again?, The answer is a resounding yes!
My name is Janie Elisabeth Beck, Nik's Catering Catered my wedding. I was in need of some one who understood my needs and my tight budget. I didn't have much in the way of a budget. Nik's catering worked with my budget and the food was amazing. We did a self service buffet style cuisine. Nicole suggested Italian because it was cheap and we could get more for our money. I came to Nicole through My best friend Marilyn Watt Nicole is her daughter and she thought that she could help me. Three months prior to my wedding I sat down with Nicole and we went through some sample menus that she prepared for me and how many people I was expecting and set up a few tastings to sample some of the foods to make our final decisions. The day of the wedding things were a little hectic but once the people arrived and the vows were said we all settled up for a party. When we got to the reception hall the tables were set and the food was ready and every thing was good. I was most impressed with the quality of services that Nik's catering provided with a budget of six hundred dollars I fell like I got service of some one who spent thousands. with everything that I got for the services I was extremely happy with the services Nik's catering offered and would use thier services in the future.
Just imagine having a head chef show up in your kitchen, what a treat. My wife and I were looking for something different and exciting for our anniversary. We knew exactly what we were looking for; delicious food, special treatment and a high level of service. We obtained the services of a premier personal chef. My wife and I had a wonderful evening at home thanks to Chef Gray. He brought all the food and ingredients, all the pots, pans and cooking utensils, beautiful table setting and glassware. Chef Gray took over my kitchen and prepared us a wonderful three course meal. He was the shining example of a highly trained professional chef. He transformed our dining room into a "Five Star Restaurant" with his personalized and attentive service. Chef Gray is a great listener and takes your dietary restrictions into consideration to customize your meal. He took care of everything, assisted with the menu, cooked for us, provided exceptional service and cleaned up the entire kitchen. Thank you Chef Gray for making our anniversary so uniquely special.
The chefs did an excellent job at preparing the food and in a timely manner!
Rafael was super flexible, understanding and produced an amazing private VIP meal!
Food delicious and fulfilling. My favorite was the mashed cauliflower with mushrooms and gravy and vegetable lasagna. Thank you for prepared meals😀
The food is absolutely delicious! I love the options too - healthy, Paleo, gluten-free and some indulgent dishes too. I don't like to cook, nor have the time, so this is perfect for me - I know I'll be eating healthy meals (and saving money instead of ordering out at work) that taste so good! The service is also outstanding. The owner is very responsive to requests, etc. I highly recommend!
I currently work crazy hours and needed a personal chef to cook for my husband and two kids. Professional foodies, goes above and beyond. Providing fresh meals made with love. Mrs Kim, is very professional and goes above and beyond for the customer. If your looking for a professional personal chef, then try professional foodies.
Victoria and La Dolce Vita have catered lunch for my office and her food was nothing short of perfection. Rarely does my entire staff agree on something, but without hesitation, everyone agreed it was the best catered lunch we have ever ordered. It's easy to taste when food is authentic and prepared fresh. I was so impressed, I'll not only be using La Dolce to cater for my office, but I'll be using them for a company event where I'll be hosting 125 clients on a charted cruise! Thanks for everything Victoria!!
My husband and I had a family get together. 8 people. We picked an italian style menu. He made a 5 course meal which i have to say is fantastic and way better than Olive garden. Plate decor was amazing. Very decent pricing. Great chef highly recommended.
We loved having Kathi's help with our evening meals while my husband was deployed. She helped make our meal plans and organize the grocery needs, she prepped and cooked all meals from start to finish and left my kitchen spotless. She even modified her dishes to meet my vegan/vegetarian lifestyle. She helped us find kid-friendly meal ideas and always made sure they were healthy and varied. We enjoyed all the food she prepared for us and already miss her very much!
