I would not give this company your credit card number. I suddenly ended up with a charge on my credit card - in October 2019. I've called the accounting office and I've sent emails to no avail. Good luck getting accounting problems resolved. Now I have to cancel my card and work with visa to resolve this - a real pain and waste of my time. Never again.

I hired The Butler Did It to assist with a private function in our home. This annual party, to which we invite 30 or more adults and their kids, involves the final cooking, plating and serving of hot and cold appetizers and several large pans of paella. I did not want full catering, but rather, a team who could take charge of my prepped food and present it to my guests, leaving me free to socialize and enjoy the party. TBDI recommended that I hire two waitstaff and a lead cook, and that suggestion worked out perfectly!
The staff arrived in the middle of a thunderstorm accompanied by a power failure. They immediately calmed my panic, and got to work with kitchen prep and set up. When the power came back on, it became apparent very quickly that Chef Tom knew exactly what he was doing with paella, and also took on the challenge of breading and frying several dozen jamon croquettas. Servers Maeve and Chris were incredibly attentive to our guests. It was hilarious to see the expressions on the faces of our friends, who had never been greeted at our door with glasses of sangria and hot appetizers. Most of all, it was their personalities that shone. The staff were enjoying themselves, and the guests reacted accordingly, and asked me why I hadnt found TBDI ten years ago.
They left the kitchen spotless. The rental dishes were in their crates, the dishes were washed, and the leftovers were put away. A quick tidy up in the morning was all that was necessary. I wont hesitate to call TBDI as soon as we get a date established for next summers party. I suspect that some of my friends will be calling them too.
