Marcel was amazing! It was a five star experience from the service he offered, to the food he cooked, to the time he took to prep for my event. We had two chefs at my event who were amazed and very impressed with his cooking! I highly recommend him!

OMG! I can't say enough good things about our organization's experience with Zen Craft Catering. This was the first time using Thumbtack to secure services and I was a little nervous. Our organization was planning a holiday party and was trying to decide what to do about feeding our 50 guests. We were considering some type of delivery or catering but wasn't sure if we could swing getting a caterer on short notice. After putting in all of our information (late on a Sunday evening) we had a reply the very next day. Once we got in touch with Zen Craft Catering, and looked at their website, we were immediately impressed with the variety of the holiday party menu. After speaking with Amy, she worked with us to put together a menu, paying attention to our needs for vegan and vegetarian options. We were able to confirm the menu and work out all of the logistics in less than one day. Amy and Chef Sauber arrived at our event right on time with everything. (I was really impressed that their executive chef showed up for our small event). They completed their food prep and set up of buffet quickly. We were ready to kick off our party without a hitch. Zen Craft Catering went above and beyond, chef Sauber even made a second trip to get vegan dressing for our salad. The food was FANTASTIC! It looked gorgeous and was very flavorful. There was the right amount for the number of guests, and even some leftovers. Our guests raved about the food (the lobster mac and cheese was a hit, and the salmon with honey and chipotle glaze also received high praise. The kale salad with mandarin oranges and cherries was also popular). They treated us like a valuable client, were warm, friendly and professional. We are excited to have found a catering that can work with us. We are a community based organization that has done events and they exceeded out expectations. We look forward to working with them on future events!

They catered our wedding reception, the food was outstanding. The overall pricing was fair and slightly below market rates. The staff arrived on time ready to work. Servers, chef,dj all worth the money. Thank you again!

I loved working with Susan Kowalski from Wild Thyme Catering. She was professional, helpful, positive, and personable. At the last minute, I decided to throw my husband a surprise birthday dinner for 8 people. I wanted to try something new and have a chef prepare dinner in our home. Susan was able to work with the short time frame and within our budget. She listened to what I said my husband would like and helped me put together a fabulous menu. The food was outstanding and exactly what we talked about. Everyone had a great meal and an awesome time. I definitely recommend Susan, and hope to have her back sometime in the near future.

Had a great experience with Executive Chef Mark Kearney and Team. To set expectations before the review, I like to consider myself a food lover...not a critic, just a food lover. I love great dining experiences and am equally critical or disappointed when they fall short. My family and I were hosting Christmas Dinner for a total of 10 family members. I found Chef Mark on Thumbtack based on his previous reviews. Roy (part of Mark's team) promptly reached out with thought-starters for the meal and breakout of pricing. Over the next few weeks Roy, Mark and I worked closely crafting the perfect menu for my traditional Christmas dinner, while staying within my budget parameters. To note, Chef Mark is priced higher than some of the other chefs I was in contact with, but I'm glad we went with Mark based on the outcome. The menu consisted of 4 gourmet hors d oeuvres passed around while we opened presents. A fan favorite was the roasted fig with gorgonzola and prosciutto. Then time for dinner. We sat at the dining table and were served Butternut Ravioli as an appetizer, Lobster Bisque soup (a bit on the spicy side - only critique I have with the food all night) and an organic baby butterleaf salad with incredible apricot balsamic vinaigrette. The main course was both a grilled beef tenderloin (prepared to your liking) and pan roasted turkey breast. Sides that accompanied the main course were brocollini, green beans and bacon/garlic mashed potatoes. Everything (except the soup) was beyond 5 stars in terms of presentation, taste and expectations. Lastly we were served two very decadent and delicious deserts - a molten lava cake and traditional bread pudding. Two things to mention. My wife was forced (by her OBGYN) into a new diet two days prior to the Christmas dinner consisting of no dairy and no soy. When Chef Mark arrived we asked him what had dairy and soy ingredients and he quickly and thoughtfully mentioned that he could make my wife's servings without either dairy or soy. Talk about going above and beyond. This was much appreciated and set the tone for the entire dinner! I would potentially ask for two servers for the evening on future events. One to solely serve as sous chef, helping Mark prepare the food in the kitchen and the other server to help set the table, serve food, wine, etc.. throughout the evening. The 5 hours that Mark and Team allocate for the evening can go quickly. This might alleviate that. Either way, a great experience and thank you Mark and Team!

Ana is a wonderful chef and caterer. Her food is very good and very reasonable. I don't think I have tasted anything she made that was not good. A few of my favorite dishes are chicken enchilada, empanadas, her salad and her cake-pops.

We used Chantel & Bella for both our florals and wedding cake/ desserts and we are SOO happy we did! Chantel created our 21 table runners on-site (eucalyptus, white and ivory roses) working with our wedding coordinators to ensure the tables looked clean, simple and elegant. She decorated our Chuppah with white drapery, eucalyptus and white flowers (are you sensing a theme here? :)) and made sure all our bouquets and boutonnieres were perfect before photos. In addition to having her do our flowers, Chantel made us our simple two tier lemon cake with flowers, mini-cupcakes, regular cupcakes and her amazing rose flower cookies. Everyone LOVED dessert; the mini cupcakes came in 4 flavors which allowed guests to get a little bit of each flavor. The larger cupcakes were big enough to share or enjoy on your own and the cookies were perfect for all our little guests in attendance to run around eating. Every item was delicious, beautiful, and displayed so nicely for our evening wedding and reception. Additionally, Chantel helped me surprise my husband by having little kobe bryant legs and a basketball hide on the back of my cake. My husband LOVED this little personal touch and Chantel put a ton of effort and time into making my vision come true. I highly recommend you do a tasting to discover for yourself how wonderful her desserts are and view her floral designs from her previous events. Even though florals are newer to her, her great eye and sense of design in baking crosses right over and we would use her again in a heartbeat! Thanks again Chantel for making our day WONDERFUL! XOXO, Lauren & Callen G.

WeHo Sausage and Catering Co. delivered fantastic food for my event recently. Peter was very easy to work with. He understands my requests and accommodates our guests' different tastes. His food was cooked on-site and loved by my guests. I am still getting rave reviews from the guests after the party. I will definitely hire WeHo Sausage and Catering Co. for my future events.

Chef Lofthouse is incredible. He catered my 26th birthday party and fed 32 famished twenty somethings. Everything was amazing from the stuffed mushrooms to the bbq sliders! He was prompt, responsive and immensely attentive. I never saw an empty tray the entire night. This allowed me to relax and enjoy the party because I knew that he was 100% on top of it. We all know how hard it is to let go when you're hosting a party because you want everything to be great and your guests to be happy. I don't think I've ever had a party run as smoothly as this one and Chef Lofthouse was a big part of that. I will not only be hiring him again but I've already referred him to all my friends and clients. Thank you for a great night Chef!

Claudine is a wonderful person and a great cook. Her food was delicious. In hindsight, for the size of our house and kitchen, I probably would have used someone who was a bit more organized. She was a little late and had to bring lots of things for her food preparation, so dinner was a little late. She is very hands on which is great, I just didn't have the space for it! She and her assistant did a really nice job serving and cleaning everything for me. Claudine is a very hard worker.

I hired Chef Kerry to prepare all meals for a moderate size group over a weekend. He provided an amazing array of options for every meal that left all of my guests satisfied and full. All of our dietary restrictions were met with exceptionally delicious vegan dishes, desserts, and snacks. I will definitely reach out to Chef Kerry Prince for upcoming events both vegan and traditional in the future.

The lesson's provided by Chef Travis far exceeded my hopes and expectations! He answered every one of my questions and created videos to demonstrate his techniques. We had lessons using Skype, so we were able to chat and demonstrate skills throughout the lesson. The time spent in his lessons were extremely valuable and lots of fun! Anyone wanting to learn kitchen techniques would be happy to have lessons with Chef Travis!!

I was introduced to Elayne Good about two years ago. At that time I couldn't boil water. Elaine has painstakingly taught me about food, food combinations, food preparation, and general education on nutrition. I have watched her in the kitchen and marveled at the fact that she is like a chemist. She experiments with foods and flavors and ingredients and can come up with inventive and delicious new foods in a single meal. I adore this woman and could not recommend her highly enough. She is brilliant she is warm she is an incredible chef.
