Emma M. - Le Roy, NY
Order was delivered on time and packaging was exceptional. Everything was meticulously labeled with instructions printed right on each box. Everything was super fresh, cooked up beautifully and was absolutely delicious! I savored every bite. I love ordering from Goldbelly. It provides me the opportunity to eat food from Michelin starred (and other) restaurants I read about, but cannot visit due to their location in other states.
