I must say that Mark is a super laid back guy, so if you're a bridezilla and need reassurance, you can always email him and he is very responsive. Mark delivered all the food on time perfectly. He is very accommodating and has a wonderful staff on hand that made my wedding feel at ease and flow perfectly!

My husband and I really enjoyed working with Mark as our wedding caterer and received many compliments on the food at our wedding (especially Mark’s veggie lasagna). In addition to catering, Mark also provided the bartending staff for our reception. The staff passed appetizers, served drinks and re-stocked the buffet like pros and with 215 guests we were no easy wedding to cater to. I was told by multiple guests how much they liked Mark’s staff and how professional they all were and Mark made us feel at ease through the whole process while also being affordable. Mark provided my husband and me with a tasting at our home, which was great, and answered all of my questions in a timely fashion. Mark also provided us with all of our linens and serving needs for the evening (plates, glasses, utensils, etc). I wouldn’t hesitate to use Mark again for a future event.

There is much to be said about the skill level of Chef Mark and the quality of service found in Affordable Chef Services. Mark was the utmost professional, quick with his responses, helpful in decision-making, and actually MORE than made our wedding, he saved it! My husband and I were upset to discover that the reception venue had not provided adequately functioning kitchen appliances as promised, but Chef Mark creatively solved every hiccup and thrilled our guests with fresh veggies and delicious hot food. Not one of our guests knew of the behind-the-scenes stress, and we heard so many rave reviews! The wait staff were excellent and helpful, going above and beyond in preparations! Our family can whole-heartedly recommend Mark's attentive services and delicious food, any client is sure to be pleased!

They were absolutely amazing! Mark let us completely customize our menu and was always quick to respond. We had a medieval themed wedding and the whole crew totally got involved. They came dressed as"serving wenches"!! So cute. All involved were beyond professional and the food was insanely delicious. Budget friendly, tons of tasty food, great to work with. I highly recommend this vendor.

Marks crew did a great job at our wedding. People loved the food and the service was top notch. We were a little nervous to chose a caterer that we had never met or tasted, but it worked out great - just like the reviews we read from others that had used him.

I can't think of the adjectives to convey how satisfied my husband and I AND everyone at our wedding was with Affordable Chef Catering. Not only is Marks food awesome but Mark and his staff are stellar as well. All of them went way beyond the call of duty. It is not overstating to say that when my husbands family was two hours late for the ceremony Mark and his staff saved our wedding with their finely honed problem solving and people skills. Everything was perfect. Hire Affordable Chef and you will cut your wedding planning and wedding day stress way back!

An excellent caterer. The price could not be beat and the food was absolutely delightful. He even provided the tables and chairs, as our location had none available. Very friendly and organized, my wife and I felt completely at ease. I didn't worry about anything. Mark handled it all and if we ever have an event that needs to be catered again, Mark will be the first person we call.
