did an absolutely amazing job. The food was great, the price was very competitive. They arrived exactly on time and were able to start serving food as soon as the guests walked in. The presentation was excellent as well; the serving area was decorated with eye-catching but tasteful decorations and ornaments.
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
was extremely flexible and his staff were professional, courteous and helpful the whole way. I CANNOT speak highly enough of this company.

"Our dining experience was superb on the two occasions that we ate there. The first occasion was mid-week; we were seated right away and impressed with the service and food. The waitress/owner was exceptionally helpful and attentive. Our coffee was fresh, the breads varied and tasty, and the salads were a good size serving of mixed greens, cheese, tomatoes,
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
, etc. with a very tasty dressing of your choice (on the side), Our entrees (gnocchi and chicken parmesan) were exception and the sides were very tasty. Our second visit was on Valentine's Day; we didn't think about needing a reservation and did a 'walk up'. Unfortunately many others did make reservations and we had to wait. People with reservations were handled first as expected; however, the young woman handling 'walk-ups' made a mistake with her list causing a longer than expected wait. After being seated, we were served by the same waitress/owner who remembered us and apologized for the delay. Her service throughout was again exceptional. The coffee and salad were again fresh and well prepared. Although we were going to try two of their chicken breast entrees the waitress/owner alerted us that that they would take slightly longer to serve. We opted for our earlier favorite - chicken parmesan with a side of penne in a very tasty sauce. We were very well satisfied with our entrees but could not finish them and took the rest home.. Our discussion with the waitress/owner discovered that they had earlier similar businesses in the South Street area of Philadelphia and down in Wildwood Crest. It is clear that they have restaurant experience and have brought a much needed superb dining experience to our area. During our wait on the second visit we found out from others that they too were 'return eaters' who thoroughly enjoyed their prior visits and the expertly prepared dinners. By the way, on Monday through Friday they do have daily Lunch Specials and Early Bird dinners (3 to 6 Pm). We highly recommend
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
as a place to enjoy your next (and many future) dinners or lunches.

"Provided ALL the exact food that we asked for. The food was exceptionally great! Set up the kitchen beautifully! Called to verify several times so we would not be nervous. They were extremely helpful with recommendations. Excellent prices. Unusually kind, honest, and friendly. I will ALWAYS hire them! They are the best I have ever dealt with. I recommend them to everyone I know.

has been immersed in the
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
and restaurant business most of his life. Friends have hired him for a number of special events and private parties, which I have attended, and I am always impressed with how calm and in charge he is. His food is of the quality that people will still be talking about the next year when the next event is being planned.
I chaired this event for about 60 people and hired
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
as caterer as we wanted a turn-key event.
The request was for passed hors d'oeuvres and bar service.
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
and crew arrived two hours prior to the start of the two hour event, set up staging and prep in the kitchen and a bar service in the dining room.

personally prepared food throughout the party, sending out fresh, hot items that were passed pleasantly and efficiently by a young gentleman.
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
managed to do this in an organized, pleasant and creative way and did not create a mess, which was appreciated as the kitchen was accessible from two different rooms and guests occasionally passed through. The bar was staffed by the genuinely sweet and smiling

The food was gone almost as soon as it was brought out because it was delicious, fresh and smelled wonderful.

and staff worked continually through the two hour event. After dessert was served, they began clearing up to leave and after they left, there was no indication they had been there other than the lingering aromas of good food and the smiles on people's faces
I have attended functions in which full dinners were catered by

"Worst experience of my life, where do I begin... Ordered veggy pizzas, plain cheese, pepperoni, and BBQ chicken
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
from the downtown IUPUI location. Requested no bacon on the BBQ because it was a special request from my
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
and Jewish employees (against their beliefs). Made sure they got the request 10x and they confirmed. Got the pizzas (2 hours late) checked the boxes, it said there was a request for no bacon. I get a slice look at it, doesn't appear to have any on it. Everyone starts eating, as someone yells don't EAT THE
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
THEY GOT IT WRONG" people spit out the
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
and see the bacon bits (they hid it under the cheese like it was on purpose)... Call the location and the guy tries to lie to me saying I never made the request even though it's on the dang box, then he tries calling me a liar saying there was no bacon on it. Then the owner gets on the phone and tries to offer me a 50% coupon for next time like are you effing kidding me! You just tricked my employees into eating something they've never ingested and this is the best solution you have!? Truly stunned... If you're
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
, jewish, vegetarian, vegan, or just like what you order and pay for I would never eat at this place again.
Needless to say, it completely ruined everyone's night. Even the orders they got right, 80% of my employees complained of stomach aches and digestive problems.

"I had a party at Leonas on
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
last April, and it was great. Working with Stajah was great- the party was a huge hit. So, when looking for a place for my sons 2nd birthday, I figured Leonas was the place to go. I booked a party there for May 10, assuming they had the kids bounce house, as promised. When I was informed the bounce house was no longer there, I decided to cancel the party. Per my emails, that was canceled on December 23, 2013. I was informed by Stajah that since they couldn't honor the agreement and provide the bounce house, I would get a full refund for my deposit. I emailed her January 7th to inquire about my deposit. She said she was sorry and hasn't had a
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
to get to it, but she will get back to me within 2 days. Never heard back from her again. On January 22, I called and emailed. Someone named
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
replied that she had taken over
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
. She said she needs a little more time to "investigate" and would get back to me. Again, not another response since. So I emailed her again yesterday, and am still waiting. I am going to write the owner a letter personally and tell him the situation here. I mean, I am owed $250.00 and nobody really seems to be worried about it besides me. Honestly, if you want to work with a
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
company that's professional, prompt, and doesn't steal your money, don't go with Leonas. It really is a shame because the food is good, but the service is just flat out brutal. I am going to
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
my bank transactions again, hoping maybe I just missed it, but as I have been checking daily since December, haven't seen a thing. Do yourself a favor- work with someone else.

"When I first booked this venue for my party I was very excited. it was someplace different. They were fine to work with in the planning stages. I cant say they were so helpful but i have no general complaints up until the ngiht of my event.
I provided a time line of how i wnated the evening to go.When dinner shoudl be served ect. they could not follow the
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
time line, nor was anything ready when we had asked . When they finally did have dinner ready they ran out of food. they were not able to feed my guest. the Chef,
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
was as surprided as Iwas when he ran outof food. Not only did they run out they made no effort to try to find or get more food for my guests. Let me add that I was under 6 guest from my original number I have to the
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
.
Their staff was horrible. Not one of the staff except for the chef was apologetic or tried to make the situation better. In addition they lied to me and told me that the kids at my party which there were many had 2 and 3 helping which is not true.
When i did not pay that night and i met with the owner
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
the following Monday he was somewhat sorry for running out of food, but could not explain why. he then lied to me as well told me my guest were complementing him on their food and telling his staff how wonderful things were. in additon when i tired to follow up wiht
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
days later to discuss things further. he called me a liar and told me i had been
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
since the beginging of my planning process. then he told me never to call him again and hung up on me.The fact that he woudl not even listen to what I had to say speaks volumes to how wrong he was and how his venue messed up.
The owner
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
is not even involved in the planning process. His daughter
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
is the contact person. So how
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
can comment on things when he was not even part of the process just makes his credability even less. I
the
Durham Caterers Provider Name Locked
is unproffesional, and un pleasant to work with.While it is a differnt kind of place to have a party I woudl never recommend it
