Only if you want to get sick

My experience was so bad I contacted the Operations and Review Specialist, Office of Customer and Government Relations Division of Hotels and Restaurants, Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation. The lady I spoke to pointed out Crystal Bay Caterer report sanitation report online, it speaks for itself - I saw Crystal Bay is rated as a Risk level 2: This is the definition she provided me of Risk Level 2: * Cooks raw animal food and cools any cooked/heated TCS food; OR * Conducts a special process [ROP; growing sprouts; smoking TCS food for preservation; curing TCS food; uses additives or components to make a food nonTCS (such as using vinegar to achieve a pH of less than 4.2 for sushi rice); holding live clams, mussels, oysters or scallops in a water tank; custom processing animals for personal use (e.g., cook your catch)]; OR * Serves any raw or undercooked animal food - requires a consumer advisory I processed an official complaint, #201802**** on 5/15 - as all of Crystal Bay Caterer Sanitation reports, it is online; but this summary is not an inspection report, but the response to my specific above complaint "Violation Observation Intermediate - Certified Food Manager or person in charge lacks (which is Chef Sam LoPiccolo ) knowledge of foodborne illnesses and symptoms of illness that would prevent an employee from working with food, clean equipment and utensils, and single-service items."

I attended an event Crystal Bay Catering hosted for my friend Barbara did for Christmas 2017 at sea ranch - everyone got sick afterward (including me) - the food was definitely not good. So after the event and I got time I look into it further. I looked Crystal Bay Caterers up on the internet on Fla Department of Health inspection. They inspected Crystal Bay on April 19 and they have like an Administrative Compliant recommendation filed against them for consistent bad sanitation reports. Their employees do not even wash their hands before they handle food, it is in the report. Barbara already did a Yelp review on them, but obviously, the word did not get out in time for us - This Catering Company ruined my Christmas - before you use them you should look Crystal Bay Caterer up on the internet Florida Health Dept. Business: CRYSTAL BAY CATERERS District: Region 2 •License Type: Catering License Number: CAT601**** – lasts review had an Administrative complaint recommended (Follow-up Inspection Required) for 5 violations – repeat violations. Read some history, this company had to be reprimanded by Fla Health Department for stupid simple things like not washing their hands before using their bare hands preparing raw food. What moron’s, the Health Department is in your kitchen, you know you are being watched, and you still do stupid (and gross stuff) right in front of them? I can only image what they do when they are not being inspected. Again, do not take my word, look up their entire report yourself before you use Crystal Bay Caterers
