The Caters are definitely unique and outstanding. I had the privilege of trying the food on several different occasions and really enjoyed it. Would highly recommend them for unique eats.

Ali & Tessa are the kindest people in the world, & their FOOD is absolutely the greatest I've ever had, honest. AND, their server remembered my name & my favorite drink when I came the 2nd time, great customer service!

Planning for a large wedding is overwhelming, and as we entered into planning ours, like any couple, we had all sorts of preferences and specifics we wanted addressed for the food. I had had the pleasure of savoring some of Ali’s catering the previous year, and in particular I remembered his rice. I had maybe 8 or so meals of his creation during that time, and each batch of rice was different, and fit with the supplied meal. When I cook rice, it’s simple - just rice. But Ali really cares about food, and his rice, just rice!, was so good every time. And the rest of the food! such a variety, with each dish having been crafted with such grace. So we obviously met with Ali to cater our wedding. We wanted to feed about 200 with a relatively simple, healthy meal, focusing more on vegetables and variety than meats. During the menu process, he proved to be flexible, accommodating, and knowledgeable. He made sure we got what we wanted, but not without his excellent and polite input about what works and what might not. In terms of service, he helped us out beyond the scope of a caterer, finding staff to help him out and obtaining catering items that weren’t strictly limited to his job. And he brought an excellent and professional staff. On the day, we received universal praise for our choice in Ali, with some people saying it was some of the best food they’ve ever had! In particular, the salad he crafted with walnuts and his grilled steak were phenomenal. Hiring a caterer can mean introducing an unknown quantity to your event, but with Ali, you’ll get superior service and professionalism, and some of the best food available, crafted by a true artist.

Ali and Tessa did the catering for our wedding. I knew we were in good hands and confident they would do an excellent job, of which they did. Ali has a keen palate for food, he was able to take a small budget and wow our taste buds and our guests. I trusted Ali to make all the decisions for our dinner, he welcomed the opportunity to create a meal with minimal guides lines and dietary restrictions. What he delivered was an amazing and memorable meal. It’s not very often that guest rave about their wedding dinner, we had countless attendees comment on how delicious the food was. The evening would not have been success without the prior and day of efforts of Tessa. Ever calm and organized she was a joy to work with. She promptly reached out with any questions and was always warm and professional. It was such a relief and joy to not have to worry about anything during our reception, I knew Tessa and Ali had it all under control. I would happily recommend and encourage anyone to book Ali and Tessa for their catering services.

This is an outstanding company! Great service and the food is to die for! We utilized the Caterers for our Rehearsal dinner - it was a Fiesta party and we had steak and chicken fajitas along with rice, beans, guacamole. The meat was so delicious - we kept hearing from our guests - not just throughout the night but even weeks after how good the flavor was. There were some leftovers that we froze and ate for works and still tasted so delectable. I also cannot say enough about how wonderful it was to work with Ali and Tessa - our two main contacts from the Caterers, very friendly, responsive, and so easy to work with. You will not be disappointed!

The Caterers did a great job with our company lunch! They had many different menu options that we could pick from that would work best for our group and price range. What I appreciated the most is that they came in, displayed their food themselves in our breakroom, stuck around to talk about the food options to the employees and came back later to clean up! That is top notch service! Definitely will be using them in the future!

Phenomenal food! The marinated beef tenderloin kabobs were my favorite. But that is not all - for a family wedding gathering, The Caterers set a table for kings. My only complaint was there were so many choices I didn't have enough room on my plate to try them all! Aside from all the fabulous food that everyone is still talking about, The Caterer's took care of everything else -- the tables were beautifully set with fresh flowers to match the colors of our invitations, as did the cake. They also supplied the background music and drinks. We didn't have to do anything but enjoy the occasion with our family. The friendly and helpful staff treated my family like royalty. It was a night to remember, thanks to The Caterers!

I cannot say enough good things about the catering we ordered for our rehearsal dinner on 9/1/17. Tessa and Ali were easy to work with, very responsive to questions and emails, and worked within our budget. They delivered, set up and serviced a buffet style meal that was displayed beautifully and tasted delicious. All our guests were so impressed with the food and the setup. I would book them again in an instant.

The food and staff are amazing! My guest were blown away by the amazing food and service. I would highly recommend them for any of your catering needs. People that were at our party still talk about how great the food was. We had to push our party out one day do to heavy rains and The Caterers were very accommodating to my needs. Highly recommend!
