Testimonials

"Jason and his team bring a Michelin star experience to the workplace. The food is always delicious, fresh, on time, and very affordable. The main distinction between Ambrosia and a different catering company is the quality that Ambrosia demands from its chefs; only the best of the best get accepted, and every employee has previously worked at a world-renowned restaurant. You can truly taste the difference, and your employees will love you for it!"

Daniel PolotskyCEO, Coinflip

"Ambrosia Foods brings restaurant-quality food right to your workplace. Their food is always delivered on time and is priced fairly. Our whole office looks forward to their lunches – it’s really amazing."
