Chef James had great communication, provided a customized menu, and worked with us to facilitate our allotted budget for our wedding reception. Unfortunately, the reception hall we booked did not allow for outside caterers. Based off of his professionalism, I would contact Chef James again for any future needs. As mentioned before, Chef James provided a custom menu with phenomenal descriptions of the food giving us a clear idea of what to anticipate.

Gypsy Soul catered my outdoor wedding. We had a bohemian fiesta theme with a tapas buffet and made to order tacos right off the truck. It was amazing!! The tacos were so good and so fresh and was a really unique and fun alternative to the typical buffet style we originally planned. People are still talking about it!! Robyn and and her team did a great job. Compliments came from my guests about how nice they were too!! All the food was excellent and added to the already perfect day we had!!

Recently I had an impromptu wedding shower for my niece whose fiance was being sent to Afghanistan earlier than expected. I wanted it to be special and fun, but wasn't sure what to do. I had been to a street festival last summer where Hard Wood Cafe was selling their food and just loved their "Go Hog Wild" pulled pork sandwich - and don't get me started on their pulled pork nachos!!!.Really delicious food. I looked them up online hoping they catered-and they do! I started telling the owner Debbie about what I was doing and how much I wanted this to be a really fun and special event. During our conversation I told her how much I loved their cute little gypsy wagon and how we had first tried their delicious food at the street fair. After deciding on my menu, Debbie told me that the truck was available too! I couldn't believe it!!! Our event was a complete success. Everyone there kept commenting on how delicious the food was, and they all loved the truck too. My niece was brought to tears when she saw all of us. Having the truck there was icing on the cake for our party. I really felt like I had hit a home run for my sweet niece. And guess what? We lucked in with weather too - our party was on the 61 degree day that broke an over 100 year record! The food was great and these owners really know how to make an event special. Thank you Debbie & Craig! - Saundra D., Mequon, WI

Loulou catered our wedding this past summer and I can't say enough great things about working with her. Our reception was at an outdoor barn venue without any kitchen or prep space. She assembled a team that created the most beautiful, delicious menu. We had FOUR entree choices, including halibut, as a plated meal for 200 guests. We did a charcuterie station as well as 4 different passed appetizers. The salad and entrees were presented with such finesse and in a very timely manner. All ingredients were local which we loved. We've had so many people tell us at the wedding as well as weeks later how amazing our wedding food was. My wedding planner even commented that it was the best wedding meal she's ever tasted. Loulou's planning was extremely thorough and left us feeling relaxed and confident going into the wedding day. She's very open to the client's ideas and opinions and balances this well with providing her expertise. I would recommend Loulou catering any and all special events!

Frankies catered for my brother's wedding and EVERYONE was extremely impressed with the food! That was the talk of the entire church and friends and family for months! The service was quick, paid attention to detail (because my family is very picky and we want things done the way we want it done VERY WELL), and Frankies did a wonderful job giving us the quality food at a very affordable price (almost 60% less that other offers). I HIGHLY recommend Frankies!

We used The Fast Foodie for our August wedding and we couldn't have been happier! We contacted Jackie while we were still in the process of booking our venue and immediately knew that we HAD to have her and her food at our wedding. She did an amazing job of making sure our guests got food quickly and recommended the perfect portion sizes. Everyone raved about the food., Best wedding food and a very memorable experience!!

Moxie Girl was wonderful! We used them for both our catering for our wedding in addition to the bar service. Jodi and Ryanleigh are wonderful to work with, and the prices are an extreme value for the service and food you get. We had 300+ guests who raved about the dinner, most saying it was the best wedding food they have ever had. In addition, the bar service was fantastic and they were open to everything that we wanted for our big day. It is 3+ weeks after our wedding day, and we still hear the reviews from our family and friends. Great job- and thanks for making our day great!

I am so happy I used Thumbtack to find Anna!!! I decided that I wanted to be fancy-schmancy and have people walk around serve guests glasses of champagne during my wedding cocktail hour that took place in May of this year. I have no experience in event planning, so I really didn't know the best way to set this up. Thankfully, Anna was so helpful through everything. She completely understood what I was looking for, and I could not have asked for a better outcome. It's very refreshing to work with people who "just get it" and have fun, positive attitude. After we met in person the week before the wedding, I knew I had nothing to worry about. With minimal direction, she knew exactly what to do. Anna and her team were professional, polite, and so easy to work with. I highly recommend hiring Creative Catering, and if I ever need event catering in the future I know who to call!! Thank you, thank you!!!!!

I can highly recommend David and Guy and Ono Kine Grindz for your wedding reception or any and all catering needs - big or small. David and Guy did a FANTABULOUS JOB catering our wedding. They provided not only excellent food for our guests on August 30th 2014, but they gave the gift of that Hawaiian family love to everyone. From the first meeting to go over the menu and our budget with Guy, to the day of the event -- everything went so smoothly. David and Guy were both so wonderful in how they responded to my numerous phone calls with changes to the menu, special dietary requests, modifications to the final head count and my own wedding jitters, David even made me sit down and relax and have a cup of Kona coffee with him. He reassured me that everything was going to be great and not to worry. And it was! It was! What caterer does that for a client? We served succulent Kalua Pig -- Hawaiian pulled BBQ pork, Char Siu chicken -- delectable tangy grilled boneless thighs, purple rice, kim chee, savory and lightly spiced macaroni salad, and a delicious carrot and pineapple slaw, plus a lovely vegetarian pasta salad for our vegetarian guests. They even made a lovely grilled seitan burger with mango salsa for a vegan friend. It smelled so good and tasted fabulous. Service was buffet style and yet the servers went above and beyond, clearing tables, asking people if they could bring them anything else. People are still talking about how awesome the food was, and the best thing about it is we still eat Ono Kine Grindz food and knowing we can anytime we want is such a gift! And we love stopping in to say hello to David and Guy and the rest of the team at OKG. It's so much more than just the food.
