We really enjoyed working with Chef Kevin. He developed a perfect (and very reasonable) menu for my motherâs 90th birthday party (a late afternoon reception). We had 50 people attending and he reassured me all along the way that the event would go well, and it did! Chef and his assistant arrived early, helped set up the room for better flow, arranged the food and punch tables, and added lovely special touches such as red roses and petals on the serving tables. Guests praised the food and my mother is still raving about the event. Many thanks to Chef Kev! We highly recommend him.
Chef Serge et al were fantastic. I put together a surprise birthday party for my husband in my house and they were punctual, professional, responsive, and fun. I received many compliments on the food and will definitely refer anyone who asks!
Mercedes Jo & Staff, thank you for Catering my 50th Birthday party and the food was absolutely amazing! All of my guests raved about the taste of each dish, many thanks and I am forever grateful!
Top of the City Catering offers incredible food paired with first class service. Maribel, the owner and her most professional staff did an amazing job at a military retirement party where the guests are still raving about the food and service. She is our go to caterer for all our events going forward. St. Jane de Chantal in Bethesda would give her six stars if we could.
Candra was hired as the event coordinator for a 50th birthday party. She took care of everything from the decorations, food, cake, even the event location. The food was delicious. Everyone had a great time! Wonderful to work with. Will certainly hire her again in the future.
Did my moms 75th birthday party, they played various music kept the party going all night. Enjoy them very much, will definitely hire again!
I loved everything about working with Dianna of Catering reserved! From start to finish she delivered everything she promised, including delicious food! She was prompt, creative, and thorough in her proposal; she worked with me to refine my needs and I was very comfortable with my final decisions; Her pricing was affordable and fair and most importantly she promised there would really be enough food to feed everyone and there was! She promised it would be delivered on time (it was), that her staff would set it all up nicely without my help (he did!) and that it would be hot and delicious (and it was!). Nothing was forgotten; nothing was omitted. The serving utensils were there, the sterno, and the clear containers were perfect for serving the food in. I didn't need china serving dishes for my event, but Dianna does offer that and if my next event needs Catering Reserved's full service, I won't hesitate to use it. (Food plus waitstaff for setup and clean up.) I've never met Dianna in person, and I never tasted her food prior to hiring her for my very important event, but from our first conversation I just knew I could trust her, and I was right. I highly recommended her! Thanks to Catering Reserved, I got to visit with my guests and totally enjoy my "after-the-wedding" party.
I began working with Richard months ago and made it very clear that I was working on a tight budget for my graduation/birthday party. He was very understandable and was able to work with my budget and provide me with excellent foods! He also gave me great advise on how to save money and to make the party better. Day of the party he was extremely helpful and the food was excellent! Everyone at the party raved about the food! I have already recommended him to many of my friends and hope that I will be able to work with him again!
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.
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Chef Jackie. She is a delightful person, who also did a lovely job cooking, serving, and cleaning up for a small (4 people) dinner party. She arrived late, but did call to let us know, and she was ready when the guest of honor and her partner arrived. The presentation was nice, and the food was good. Her chocolate mousse was outstanding! She also did a great job of cleaning up. This is not a knock, but she doesn't stand on ceremony, so if you are looking for very formal service, this isn't it (which fit my style just fine). I definitely recommend her for catering a party, and expect she would be a wonderful teacher for a cooking class.
It's a pleasure to rate this review for Candi and her team. Candi is very talented, creative, professional, and she loves what she does. I've utilized her services on three separate occasions - Gender Reveal, Baby Shower, and my moms 80th Birthday Celebration. All three events were outstanding. Candi makes your dreams come true!!! Please utilize her services for your next event. You won't be disappointed. I keep coming back!!! Thank you Candi!!
Esther takes great pride in her work. We had a lovely dinner party with 10 adults and 10 children. She made the entire experience so enjoyable and the good was delicious! She left our kitchen spotless and we could truly enjoy her evening. Looking forward to the next time.
I held a birthday brunch for a friend in my home for 15 guests. Iyea prepared chicken and red velvet waffles, shrimp and grits, and egg fritatta. The food was delicious and there was more than enough quantity wise. Iyea stayed in touch leading up to my event and followed up afterward for feedback. I would use her again. She does not handle the presentation of the food so you will need to be prepared with your own serving dishes.
Olive Express provided an affordable and delicious catering for my engagement party. Everyone LOVED the food and the set up looked fantastic. I would recommend them for any event! The staff is very flexible and willing to work with you on any menu that fits your budget and theme. Additionally, Yvonne is especially responsive to email and phone calls. I am looking forward to using Olive Express again at my friend's baby shower!
I used Healthy Catering Co. to host a dinner party for 8 guests after a recommendation from my coworker. I loved loved loved the variety as far as vegetarian dishes. It was a breeze to call in advance and schedule my dinner party. Nasrin was very attentive and helpful about explaining the various foods. My only wish is that I had a big enough stomach to enjoy all the delicious dishes.
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.
Patricia Wright catered a Graduation party for me. She was very accommodating with the menu I wanted and professional from beginning to end. The food was outstanding and all the guests enjoyed it. I would recommend The Wright Caterer for any event and will use her services again!
