    Great Food, Pleasant Service and Patient!!

    Our son found Chef Jeff for his wedding. Chef Jeff and team was very patient as we adjusted the menu to be sure that we had enough entrees, sides, and deserts.

    All of the food was delicious and the service was very good. I especially liked the mango salsa on their chicken. The beef was very good. They had generous serving sizes.

    Everyone was happy with the food and they made it easy for us to bring left overs home.

    It was awesome

    We had a meal catered in our home to celebrate a birthday..the food, service, and their pleasant demeanor made it an exceptional experience. When the meal was completed, the cleanup was much appreciated. I would highly recommend chef Chef Jeff and his daughter Amber.

    Amazing Caterer

    So grateful for Chef Jeff and his team. Amber was extremely easy to work with and called me to see how I was doing when our venue cancelled on us. She was so helpful and willing to be flexible with our needs. The food was amazing. Highly recommend!

    Chef Jeff Catering's reply:

    Thank you Allie! I loved working with you. It was a challenging year to say the least but what a joy to cater your wedding! Your friends and family were awesome and it was such a beautiful event to be apart of. Thank you for having us!
