I contact 4 caterers for proposals and suggestions for a 50th birthday party I was throwing for myself. Leslie of Lets Eat had the most interesting selections out there and was a total pleasure to work with. The food at the party was terrific and beautifully presented. Leslie and her assistant Ernestine made sure that everyone had everything that they needed and it always was plentiful and beautiful. As the party was winding down they boxed up and labelled the leftovers maiing it oh so easy for me. Leslie is a true professional who handles everything so well all you have to do is enjoy your own affair. Kudos to Let's Eat!

Kat, you were a joy to work with, so much positive energy. Your guest spoke very highly of you during your toast and for the short time that I have known you, I knew no one was lying! It brought tears to my eyes (not hard to do by the way!) You had an awesome party and most importantly, you appeared to have a ball!!! Happy 50th and please do call us again.
I live in Chicago, Il and had to find a caterer for a graduation party I was giving for my son in Altanta. After doing research on the internet and making phone calls, I sent my son a few menus to choose from. He chose Let's Eat. I have to say it was a great choice. From my first phone call to the company, I knew I was in good hands. The service was perfect, the staff so nice, and they left my sister's house in pristine condition. The food was wonderful. Everyone had a different favorite, which someone told me was a sign of a good caterer. I recommend Let's Eat highly.

It was great hearing from you!!! Thanks for the positive feedback. The party was awesome and I was hoping that you were able to enjoy the party! I know that hiring someone while out of town can be stressful. Please call again if you need a caterer in the future. It was a joy working with you.
Thanks again for catering my party on Saturday. Everyone was raving about the service and yummy food! I was very impressed with the presentation and how little work I needed to do at the party. I was able to enjoy my guests and not have a big mess to clean up in the end. I will surely recommend you to all my friends and neighbors for future events. Best of luck with your business in the future. I hope to work with you again soon!

The pleasure was all mine!! You had an awesome party. The 80's theme was fantastic and your guest participated in a major way. My only regret is that I couldn't find my afro wig in time to wear to the party. The party was in full swing when we left so I know that you were glad that you didn't have to clean up after your guest left. Please call again and refer us to friends.
I would normally not choose a new caterer over the internet, but the reviews were so great! Utilizing Let's Eat Catering allowed me to have a stress free time for my wedding reception. Everyone raved about the food and her arrangement of the food was very pleasing to the eye. My only criticism would be that if the amount of people in attendance actually came, I fear the proportions would have been a little tight. But that's it. I would absolutely use Let's Eat again and again. Also, Leslie provided service to me with only a couple of weeks notice, which I thought may not be possible and it was fabulous. Thank you Leslie!!!

Thanks for your review. I'm glad that we were able to service your event. That date was booked and cancelled by 2 different people so we happened to be available. It was meant for us to meet! It was a great wedding, very intimate with close friends and family. We enjoyed it as much as your guest did. Thankfully, we have been fortunate enough to have never run out of food for an event. While you didn't have as many guest as you contracted for, a lot of your guest did come back for food a couple of times and some took plates and storage bags of food home. I am sure that you would have been fine if all of your guest had attended. We'd love to be of service to you again so please feel free to call us if you need a caterer.
Great Food, Great Presentation, and Great Service. Let's Eat catered an engagement party that I was having for a friend in my home, and simply made it a great hassle-free event. The only dilemma I'll have the next time I call is which items to select because they all look so good. Leslie, Thank you for a great event.

You guys are the best!!! Thanks for the opportunity. Throwing that party for your friend spoke volumes for the type of people that you are. It was a great party and I don't blame the bride-to-be for being emotional because I almost cried myself for the gesture!! Call me anytime. You and your friends were wonderful to serve and it was a pleasure!
Let's Eat Gourmet catered an after wedding day brunch for 60 people in my home. Leslie is extremely friendly, competent and I would absolutely have her do any catering event I needed. From my first contact with her, she was right on top of things and the food was not only delicious, but the presentation was also outstanding. Leslie was willing to work with me to be able to provide the best food at a reasonable price. A plus was that even though she was forced through a detour and was lost (absolutely no fault on her part), she kept in touch with me and when she arrived had the buffet up and running in a very short time. All my guests were very impressed. She deserves 5 stars!!

That detour wore me out!!!! I was frazzled as time passed and we weren't at your home on time but it all worked out. Thanks for being so patient and gracious. You had the option to come unglued but instead you kept me calm!!! Given the circumstances, it all came together. Thanks for the awesome review.
I had never before worked with a caterer until Leslie helped me with an informal party at my house. I recently had surgery and wasn't sure if I would physically be up to preparing everything and handling all the details myself, so Leslie came to the rescue. She worked with my budget and everything from the presentation to the food itself was absolutely wonderful, making my first catering experience one which did not disappoint. Everyone commented on how good the food was, and my sweet tooth was definitely satisfied with Leslie's Chocolate Trifle and Berry Bliss, which she set up in wine glasses for individual servings. Beautiful! I look forward to working with Leslie again in the future and highly recommend Let's Eat Gourmet to anyone in need of top-notch catering with attention to detail. Thanks, Leslie!

I have gotten some of my best clients from this site. Thanks to Kudzu for putting us in each other's path!! I 'm glad that we could assist and extremely happy that you and your guest liked the food. Please call again.
Let's Eat Gourmet Catering provided on-time, excellent service for our Graduation Reception. The staff was well-prepared, professional and the service was excellent. The food was appealing and well prepared. Leslie worked with our planning committee up until the 9th hour to design a menu that was delicious and affordable. Thanks Leslie for everything.

Thanks for the opportunity! The event turned out very well and the last minute rentals definately made the event that much better. You guys had a vision and executed it very well. It was beautiful and I'm glad that I was a part.
Let's Eat catered my 40th birthday party dinner for 40 on June 2, 2007 on short notice. They provided an excellent menu selection, price, and the service and presentation was superb! My guests are still raving about the "Slammin Salmon". Leslie Carr and her staff are very cordial and professional and went out of their way to provide "extra" services such as taking my guests purses and coats and leaving my kitchen spotless. I would highly recommend Let's Eat Gourmet Catering and will use them for all of my social events.

Thanks so much for the review. I am overwhelmed every time I check the site and get another good review. I am so happy that you were happy!! You hosted an awesome party and I'm glad that we were able to contribute to its success. Enjoy your 40's and please call us when you need us again!!
I'm not sure which event this review is from but I am glad that you were pleased with food and service. Thanks for taking the time to post a review. This is how this site works best!! Thanks again.
I was a bit nervous about trying a new caterer, but I had an important employee awards event to plan and the caterer HAD to be good. I had success with Kudzu.com before and thought I would try it again when it came to finding a caterer. Leslie and Robert with Let's Eat Gourmet (LEG) were absolutely wonderful. From the outset, Leslie was very attentive and customer-focused. After emailing menus and references, she then followed up with a phone call to further personalize her effort to win my business. No other caterers I contacted followed up. After talking to one of her references, I felt much more confident that L E G would meet my expectations. This event planner has used L E G many times. She raved about Leslie's talent for providing delicious gourmet food and was very impressed with her meticulous attention to detail. The reference gave her a 10+ on a scale of 1-10 and I do too! The food was delectable. The stuffed chicken with mushroom sauce, fresh vegetable medley, wild rice, and lemonade was a hit! I also appreciated the fact that I didn't have to do a thing while they served. Normally I'm scattered at these events working on various details with the food or drinks, but not with Leslie and Robert there. They took care of everything - from refreshing the food to packing up the leftovers. I could actually sit and enjoy the luncheon. I will certainly use Let's Eat Gourmet again for my office luncheons and I'll let all my friends know what a great caterer I have found!

I am so happy that you were pleased with our food and service. It's almost impossible to please everyone but we try our best to do what we can to make the event enjoyable for you AND your guest. We don't want our client exhausted at the end of an event!! I'm glad that your experience was a good one and please share the info with others. This is a referral business so each event is advertisement and it's important to us that our clients are pleased. Thanks for the opportunity to serve and we look forward to working with you again! It was a joy for me too.
From the very first contact, Leslie was extremely professional and her love for her work came through in the wonderful spread of delicious food. I was looking for something different as I am responsible for doing a lot of catering orders at work, and I was NOT disappointed. Great job Leslie! I'll definately use you again - everyone loved it!
