    Exceptional ! I was hesitant at first and was thrilled the first time I ordered from you. Now many delicious orders later - I am in love with your company, quality and professionalism. Thank you for spoiling us with each order.

    My friend purchased a meal for us after my husband was recovering from surgery. The food arrived in an insulated bag, and each item was neatly packaged in plastic containers and tied with bows. It looked nice, but tasted even better. Each item had simple instructions about how to reheat and serve. Everything tested fresh and delicious. I would definitely use this service again. Yum!

    First off, the order always arrives on time. I love the secure zippered bags they come in and everything (every dish) is wrapped so prettily. The directions to reheat are very easy and the food is always delicious. We like the butterscotch bars the best!! I like to order for us after we both had a hard week at work and are just too tired to even go out. It makes a nice end of week treat for both of us.

    Wow! I cannot imagine a more wonderful surprise! Dear friends gifted us with a meal from Instead of Flowers following surgery. We received a call re:our gift and chose pork tenderloin with mashed potatoes, snow peas, spinach salad, rolls and butterscotch bars. Every single component of the meal was lovely from the packaging, the instructions, the portions (our meal for 2 fed us for 2 nights!) and the meal was absolutely delicious! It was fresh and scrumptious! (Btw the butterscotch bars are addictive) I am so impressed! I look forward to the opportunity to give this wonderful gift to someone else!!!

    While recovering from surgery, my co-workers provided us a deluxe meal for 4 from Instead of Flowers. I received a phone call and was given the choice of several different meals (they all sounded amazing) and asked when I would like the meal delivered. It arrived exactly when promised in an insulated cooler bag with complete instructions. It couldn't have been easier or more delicious. The portion sizes were generous and we even had a few leftovers. Even my boys who are picky eaters raved about it. We selected the pork tenderloin, spinach salad, sesame snow peas, mashed potatoes, french bread rolls, and butterscotch bars. I know I will use Instead of Flowers when I need to send a meal to someone.

    During the recovery from my husband's heart surgery, we were glad to be given two meals from Instead of Flowers. This week we chose the mango chicken on yellow rice. It showed up on time, was nicely made and accompanied by broccoli (that was not overcooked:), salad, rolls, and a good desert. We appreciated being able to make a few alterations in the suggested menu and the clear instructions for the final heating up of the food. Thank you!

    I had surgery this week and someone gifted me with a dinner. What a treat, the service is personal...they called me to let me know that I could choose a dinner from their website. Then I called back to order from a friendly person and right on time my dinner arrived the next day. There were almost too many choices. We went for Lasagna, with a Caesar Salad, with rolls, and zucchini and squash topped off with cheesecake! Two of us couldn't finish what they sent. Dinner came packed beautifully, with instructions on everything, In short, it was easy, well done and delicious. I've found a new way to help friends who are ill, or had a baby or lost someone....if you can't be there send "Instead of Flowers" you won't be disappointed.

    Unexpected Delight!

    Instead of Flowers was given as a sympathy gift for the loss of my mother by my dear neighbors. We didn't know what to expect, since we had never heard or used this vendor before. What a surprise! I contacted the vendor to place my order. The process was simple and easy, the food was delivered as scheduled and as ordered. We were totally surprised about the amount of food received, and especially the quality and deliciousness of every bite. Our order for 2 selection included: flank steak, salad, black beans and rice, broccoli, and desert. The package was delivered to our home in a lovely 'ice' pack bag to ensure food safety and quality. All we had to do was heat and serve. My husband and I were blown away about the excellent taste of the food! What a special dinner we had that night. A welcome and unexpected delight!

    This is my fourth time ordering after being given a gift card. I love the easy ordering process on line and the selection. The most recent order was lasagna but I still think I like the salmon the best!

    A friend sent me a gluten free meal. We chose the Caribbean Flank Steak. It was delicious! I highly recommend this service to anyone who wants a break from cooking or to send someone a delicious prepared meal. I have been using them since 2008 when a neighbor sent me a meal.
