Catering by Lovables


Hi Elizabeth,

Thank you so much for making the baby shower a very special event! The food was absolutely delicious, the presentation was beautiful and the service was nothing short of perfect! You received many compliments on the fruit and cheese platters... several ladies mentioned that they had never seen a fruit selection which included dried fruit and nuts. One of my friends is still talking about the chicken salad and the antipasto! The selection of salads had something for everybody, and we truly enjoyed them.

I appreciate your advice, your consideration and your help. Our guests had a fun time and couldn't have been more complimentary.

Three of your napkins were left behind, along with a napkin ring. I washed them and Felix will take them to you at Rotary tomorrow.

Thanks again,

Lynn Guarch-Pardo

Hi Elizabeth,

It is my understanding that you did the catering for the 50th Anniversary lunch for the Marian Center. I saw your van and people, but unfortunately, did not see you.

You put on a first class event; thank you, particularly since this was the first official program held since Sister Lucia passing. It could not have been a better event... all I heard were wonderful comments on the food and service.

Again, thank you of behalf of myself and the other members of the Board of Directors.

Hi Elizabeth,

A HUGE thank you for making us look so good Saturday night. The event was beautiful, and the food and Carl's service were highlights of our event.

Catering by Lovables lived up to its reputation!

With great appreciation,

Hi Marilyn,

I am writing to thank you for the catering you provided us at our Spring Graduation Reception this past Monday, April 29, 2013. We were very delighted with the food and presentation and received many compliments from the guests in attendance. Additionally, Alvin was extremely professional and helpful before, during and after the event to make sure it ran smoothly. He was an absolute pleasure to work with. I worked previously at Louis J. Aguirre & Associates and used your company at that time for some of the lunch & learns we held, so I was confident you would do a great job and that the quality of food would be excellent. I look forward to working with you at future graduation receptions.

I wanted to thank you a million for the wonderful reception for all those VIPs last Friday. With your lovely presentation, Cynthia's big time effort with the banners, etc. and the four orchids, the room looked very nice indeed - not just some exercise room!

All the food and beverages were perfect! Thanks so much - for all!!!

Dear Elizabeth,

Dear Elizabeth and Marilyn: My great apologies for not saying a proper good bye to you last evening (as I made it up the stairs one last time and plopped down it to a chair to recover from too much dancing)! Your food and service were all fabulous; we have received lots of compliments on what a great job you did, and I want to heartily second that! Your staff were friendly, efficient and professional, and you cooked up great food on all fronts. Many thanks for making the party such a success!

Best regards,

Bob & Edith


I must inform how your catering company really made a wonderful and impressionable difference to the Executive Command Staff Retreat May 23rd & 24th, 2011.

Your culinary expertise along with your staff, Carl are to be commended for the preparation, delivery, and doing an excellent job. Our staff enjoyed the training, the meals, breakfast and lunch, with the coffee, the fresh fruit, the pastries, was also a hit with no leftovers. The Churrasco Steak was perfect and the Grilled Lemon Chicken were a “hit”. Our collaboration and planning was well received. With all said, we would like to continue this working relationship with Catering by Lovables.

Good afternoon Elizabeth,

I just wanted you to know that last Thursday's fare was delicious.  I got lots of favorable compliments and everything was attractively prepared.  I have to tell you that I am not a fan of brownies, but I loved yours.  Most of all, the guest of honor was happy and she was able to take a good portion of the vegetable basket home.  Thank you for the quick turnaround too!



Good afternoon Elizabeth,

Thank you so much for the gift certificate of lunch for ten - the office will take full advantage of your generosity.  I will always choose Lovables for my events - I know I can count on you, I do not have to worry about any of the details, and your food is always exceptional.  The praise is still coming in - the quiche was a huge hit.  The room looked fantastic, you arrived early with delicious food, and your staff was courteous and efficient.  How much more could I ask for?  Thanks for everything Elizabeth and I look forward to seeing you soon.

Thank you,

Louise Jaffe

Elizabeth -- I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the platters you donated for my brothers fundraiser yesterday! Everything was delicious (as usual!!!). It turned out to be a beautiful night and even had some people end up jumping in the pool! (it was a little warm!!).

With your help, we were able to raise almost $9000 last night for them.

You are the BEST!

Hello Elizabeth,

I just wanted to drop a line, on behalf of everybody in our staff, to thank you for lunch today.

Everything was delicious, and made out for the perfect opportunity to have a meal together.

Kindest regards,

Marisa Lopez


I just wanted to say THANK YOU for the job that your staff did. I was impressed on how everything turned out. The food was absolutely delicious! That fajita station was my favorite.

And the fact that your staff dressed up as Mexicans, was the icing on the cake.

You are truly the best at what you do!

Milly Estrada

Hi Elizabeth,

Thank you for the coupon I received today…..when we plan our next office luncheon, you are the only caterer I would call. I would not hesitate a minute to recommend you to personal and business contacts – each event with you has far exceeded my expectations and hopes and has always been a “hit” with the employees and guests. Please know, I will keep you in mind and cannot wait until our next luncheon to see what you have in store for us. Take care.

Thank you,

Louise Jaffe

Lovables was absolutely THE BEST today! I just wanted you to know that everything was fresh, tasty, top quality and perfect!

Nancy Lee Ryan


I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful job you and your staff did at our Conch n Colada’s Party. We had so many great compliments from our guests and our CEO. It’s always a pleasure to work with you. Sorry this is so late in getting to you, we have been so busy with 6 special events this month! The other five take place at restaurants but they are more time consuming than Conch n’ Colada’s party.

Thanks again.

Cindy Kendall


I wanted to tell you that food this morning was great! The fruit bread was a hit!! Both our guests and employees enjoyed it. Thank you for your catering and we hope to continue working with you in the future.

Have a great rest of the day!

Cristina Guerrero

Elizabeth I have to tell you that I am very impressed with the order. I have been catering food for my boss for 5 years and I am always disappointed and constantly changing catering companies. I will from now on be using you and refer you as well to my marketing department that handles events here.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing what you prepare for lunch.

Thank you for the wonderful lunch!

Dear Elizabeth,

On behalf of the Miami Stories 2008 committee, the entire Board of Directors and Staff of New Theatre, we want to personally thank you for supporting our 3rd annual Miami Stories Fundraiser. Most importantly, thank you for suggesting the Miami Science Museum as the venue for our fundraiser. It was a totally magical, beginning with the beautiful setting, flowers, and the wonderful food and service you and your staff provided. Thank you for always taking care of us.

It is thanks to you, our loyal New Theater supporters, that this event has become a major success to be part of each year. Not only did many attend, but also donated many beyond the cost of your tickets, bought program ads, donated silent auction gifts and purchased silent auction items. Because of your generosity, we were able to raise a much needed $22,000 for New Theater.

Once again, thank you again for your support.


Ricky J. Martinez
Artistic director

Dear Elizabeth,

I was really touched that you thought of me and took the time to prepare this delicious lunch for me. I just want you to know that I am very appreciative and grateful.

You are really a very special, loving and lovable human being. They did not call you lovable for no reason. You are always welcome to my humble vessel.

Thank you again

Very sincerely,

Just wanted to thank you for an absolutely delicious holiday luncheon. You put that extra touch of gourmet into each dish! Everyone kept thanking me for setting up this great get-together for the office. Since we had a lot of left over, some of our employees were able o bring some home to share worth their families. An all around great luncheon from you and your staff. We will definitely do this again.

I also wanted to mention that the delivery person was extremely friendly and polite.

Happy Holidays to all of you at Catering by Lovables.

Dear Elizabeth and Marilyn:

I just came back from enjoying the delicious Thanksgiving luncheon you provided to my daughter's 5th grade class(es) at Ada Merritt K-8 Center. WOW - what a spread!

The parents were amazed at how wonderful everything was and the kids really enjoyed having such a delicious Thanksgiving luncheon. The kids made the enclosed card as a thank you for your generosity - hope you enjoy it as much as they enjoyed their lunch! I have already told the other parents about your generosity, but when I get back from my Thanksgiving weekend, I am going to also send your contact information in my next email. It isn't easy finding good quality/good price and dependability all in one caterer. (P.S. Carl arrived absolutely on-time - so on-time that I had just pulled up behind him and he helped me take my case of water and the cupcake cake! He is very nice - I gave him a kiss on the cheek to pass along to you!)

Thank you again - you made a lot of people's Thanksgiving!! Hope yours is as good!
I know this is a crazy time of year for you, but I wish you every success and joy through the holidays and throughout the next year.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and the lovables staff for the fantastic food for last Friday's event. Carl was amazing and was so helpful - I would take him to all my events if I could!!! We don't have any events in the immediate future that require catering, but when we do you will be the first catering company we consider. Thank you so much again for all your hard work and I look forward to working with you again soon.

All my best,

I appreciate your thoughts and ideas and look forward to receiving your proposal. See you Thursday evening.

Best regards,

Hi Elizabeth -

Thank you for the delicious boxed lunches.
I had so many agents ask who the company was, and I kept giving your name -- I was thinking maybe, in future deliveries, we should have either a few Lovables business cards, in the delivery, or (more timely/costly) a Lovables sticker / label on the boxes?

Just wanted to make sure you get the press you deserve!
Thanks a million - Donna (prop your feet up, and rest this weekend... yeah, right, I am sure :)

On behalf of Event Solutions and our staff at RITMO! PALOOZA, I thank you for lending your great talent , time and energy (and of course, your wonderful food and staff) to this event. Your presence made this event a truly memorable experience that I will remember for many years.

Marilyn and Elizabeth -

As always, your food was super- there were only four sandwiches left, along with a few bits of cheese! Very popular with the guests. The chicken buts were fantastic- first to go!

Thanks again for working with me to make both you and me look great!



Dear Elizabeth:

On behalf of all the members of the Host Committee for the annual Association Of Defense Communities Conference our sincere thanks for your most generous sponsorship of our VIP Reception, July 28th.

On a lovely summer evening some 120 very special guests, including representatives from the Department of Defense , local military installations, local governments, strolled through Viscaya while munching on the delicious foods you provided. The hor d'oevueres, the cavery stations, and tech service was excellent.

Your support of the premier event for a conference that brought over 700 delegates to our hometown was deeply appreciated.

Elizabeth... Marilyn... Nolan... thanks for the great job on Sunday... The food was great, plentiful. Everyone was extremely pleased... even though we showed up 45 minutes early, everything was ready to go and served properly. It was a great load off of Vicki's mind, not to have to worry about all the little details during this very trying time for her. It was very soothing to know that everything would be perfect and it was!! Thanks again for all the hard work and great service...


Dear Marilyn & Staff,

    Everyone had a blast at my daughter Margot's  Bat Mitzvah on Feb. 18th. The compliments that followed were plentiful. Most of all, everyone loved the food. Of course, we have you to thank for that - and enough leftovers to remind us of how fabulous your catering is.

    For the next affair (one of my child's weddings?), I wouldn't hesitate to think of Catering By Lovables again!

Please let me know the next time you would like to tour the museum so that I can arrange a couple of passes for you.


Dear lovables,
