I strongly recommend this company! I hired mermaid catering for a small group dinner this past weekend. Julie was responsive over thumbtack about coordinating details and customizing a menu for our group. The food was amazing - we had a charcuterie board, glazed Korean BBQ meatballs, Caesar salad, steak with crab butter, rolls and butter, and a dessert board. We also purchased a brunch board for the following morning. Mermaid catering is reliable and professional, and their food is delicious! I will definitely book again in the future!

Details: Shower (baby, bridal, etc.) • 6 - 10 guests • Dinner • Breakfast / brunch • Standard (basic ingredients) • Dessert • French • Mediterranean / Middle Eastern • American - formal • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

My husband and I decided to get married rather quickly and only had 13 days to pull together all the details. Julie at Mermaid Catering was one of the first caterers to respond to my request for a quote. After exchanging a few messages via the Thumbtack site, Julie had a good idea of the type of food items we wanted and was very prompt in responding with a great menu and great price quote. We worked with Julie to secure a bartender. We supplied all the alcohol and Mermaid Catering supplied all the mixers, plates, plastic glasses, etc. The food was delicious, fresh and beautifully presented. Julie was fun and easy to work with, she was prompt getting back to me and arrived at our wedding with ample time to set up. Julie, you did a GREAT job, the food was delicious and the presentation beautiful. Thank you for working with me under such time restraints. We received many compliments on the food and presentation. Thank you SO much for helping to make our wedding perfect!

We had a welcome home party for our best friends and used mermaid catering. The food and service was amazing!!!! Due to the larger size of the party we requested having a bartender as well. The price was extremely reasonable and allowed me to really enjoy the event. She was very professional and stayed on top of all the timing involved given it was a surprise party. I will be using mermaid catering again and again. Such a success
