TESTIMONIAL

  • I just wanted to tell you what a fantastic dinner Elegant Fare provided for us last night. The food was delicious and our server Evelyn, was the best Christmas gift. She made the food presentation and clean up go smoothly, and was so gracious and courteous. When she finished you wouldn’t have known our kitchen had just served a small army.
