Description

We are a family owned & operated, full service, licensed & insured catering company. My family and I have a love and a passion for innovative gourmet food, entertaining & creating memorable events for our friends and family. Our business is a way to extend that to you, our clients! We are and will remain a small company in order to continue to offer personal service and build relationships with our clients. We have established a reputation for exceptionally creative, mouth-watering food and personalized menu planning. Our highly trained and experienced staff are the best in the area! All of our menus are custom designed to meet individual needs, preferences and budgets. We do not have menus already put together, as we love to work with our clients to custom design a menu that is just right for them! (This takes about a week depending on how busy we are). We use the highest quality & freshest ingredients to create the perfect menu for your event. We never use pre-made or pre-packaged food in any of our creations, and can deliver it all~~from heart-healthy breakfasts, delicious & creative hors d'oeuvres for your cocktail party, fresh smoked salmon & pulled pork that will blow you away, amazing signature entrees, to some of the best desserts will ever taste! I promise you will not be disappointed!...

Great! Sandra is not only a food specialist, she is very reassuring- which was helpful as I planned what was for us, a large party in our home. She provided advice and good ideas about staging the food and bar as well as planning the menu. She and her assistant arrived promptly, as did Adrian, the bartender Sandra recommended. During the party, she was busy making sure the food was presented beaut...

First, Sandra is a doll - both professional and friendly. She immediately "got" our vision, and made very practical suggestions to help us have a fantastic time, delicious food, and as relaxed planning process as possible. We ended up changing our venue 3 weeks before our wedding due to some unexpected complications, and she shifted gears quickly and smoothly to accommodate the late change in plan...

It was fabulous! Our guests raved about the food, stating that it was the best 'wedding food' they had ever had. We had 12 people on the waitstaff and two bars with bartenders. The bars were open and hors devours were passed during cocktail hour. For dinner our guests enjoyed Side Street's signature salads individually plated and then their dinners were served as a second course. Side street serve...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We needed passed hors devours, plated meals, servers, and bartenders for our May wedding with 145 guests. The wedding was outdoors at a personal residence, so we needed a caterer who could work out of a small kitchen.

The party was wonderful! Several guests approached me and commented on the presentation and flavor of the food. We were very pleased with how fancy Sandra and her employee made the barbecue look, while still having a welcoming and relaxing feel. The service was prompt, there was more than enough food for all of our guests, and the staff was very friendly. You wouldn't even know a party had happene...

This is the second time Sandra has catered an event for us and we couldn't have been happier. We got numerous comments on the food served. We did very little and we're able to enjoy the event! From start to finish Side Street did everything! Our guests were so impressed that quite a few asked for her card. She and her staff get an A+ from us!

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Side Street catered an event at our home for 65 people. The event featured a buffet and a bar tended by Side Street.

It was lovely.   The  food they recommended, using our suggestions, was delicious. The service. was thoughtful and helpful and everything was  packaged, frozen, cleaned-up before they left.  The owner came earlier in the week to see us, visualize how to best arrange thing,s and gave us the reassurance that was so important at a very, difficult, stressful time.

Hi [Member Name Removed], Please forgive me for not responding to you right away. I had a serious injury, a few days before you called, which hindered my ability to do much of anything. As you can see by our reviews, we have a great reputation, and would hope somewhere down the road you would consider using our catering services. Thank you for your review. Sandra DeVaux

The best experience I could have ever hoped for. Sandra was a delight to work with. The food was delicious and she provided unexpected extras like decorating my dining room table with linens and risers, placing food title note cards next to each platter, cleaning away empty plates and serving cake to guests after it was cut. Plus she cleaned the entire kitchen afterward so you never would have kno...
