Chef Pete communicated well. He was responsive when I contacted him and was open to changing the menu. The meal was prepared by his sous chef, Russ. The food was exactly how I had envisioned and actually exceeded my expectations. I will hire him again when I come to Napa.

Sat Khalsa represented himself as described on Thumbtack. He was very professional & easy to work with. His dishes are superb. Sat is not only a seasoned chef, but a very knowledgeable nutritionist. He is a perfect chef for me because I am a foodie to begin with, but I also have to lose weight & eat healthy due to inflammation from auto immune. I am so happy with the delicious meals he prepared for me. I asked him to come back & cook for me next week too. Thank you Sat.

We hired Made With Love (Debbie) to cook a meal for our group of 5 one evening at our Air B&B in Sonoma. It was awesome to come home after a day of wine tasting to a lovey home cooked meal. Debbie had appetizers ready for us when we arrived, and the house smelled delicious. There was more than enough food... we even cancelled our reservations at Ad Hoc the next night to enjoy the leftovers!

I wish I could give her a million stars. From her original quote to her sweet and thoughtful follow-up email the day after my wedding, I was never disappointed by the professionalism and service provided by Alisa and her colleague. She worked catering into our already tight budget, corresponded with me (your typical type A personality) about small details and ever changing menu ideas/headcount, and was prompt, professional, and wonderful! The food was OUTSTANDING. She created 4 different pasta dishes, two excellent salads, veggies, and wonderful garlic bread. She and her colleague rinsed off all of our rented tableware, put them back into their crates, and even cleaned up after guests long after dinner was done! I could not have been happier with the quality and quantity of the food prepared and received several wonderful comments from my guests about the choice of food and caterer. Alisa and her colleague mingled with our guests, made themselves available when needed, and were very self-sufficient, which is a great thing to have on the day of a wedding! They even prepared a small treat for breakfast the next day. All in all, I would hire them again in a heartbeat and would advise you all to do the same if her quote comes your way. "Passionate" about food and service is what Alisa stands for and I couldn't ask for better for my wedding.

Hi had the pleasure of selecting Chet to prepare a menu and work my Friendsgiving event which was my first time starting a tradition with my friends. From Chet's initial response to my quote request through the end of my event, the services provided were first class! Chet worked with me on my menu and I felt that he truly listened and took my vision into consideration when delivering my sample menu. I was extremely nervous since in the past, I would always be the one to prepare meals for my guest however, this year I wanted to do something different allowing me the opportunity to spend time with my guest instead of slaving in the kitchen. Chet checked in with me a few days prior to my event to confirm final details and then it was show time. He showed up on time as expected with everything needed along with a helper and the magic began. I am very satisfied with the outcome. From the taste and flavors of the food, the presentation, the hospitality Chet and his crew showed my guest, the clean up, to Chet's willingness to do more than expected (setting up tableware and more). A+ to Chet. He will certainly be my go to for future events in need of catering. Well done!

I've been fortunate to experience both formal and informal meals prepared by Graham. Not only is he a gifted and sophisticated chef with knowledge of foods, wines, and culinary techniques from around the world, but he also has a great ability to craft the perfect setting for a meal. He could fill an empty warehouse with warmth, romance, and a sense of something worth celebrating. Graham is committed to his craft and takes great pride in his work. You will not be disappointed.

We had an incredible experience with Albert. He fed our indie film crew with delicious and varied meals, within our budget and on our schedule, and did an amazing job! We could not believe how lucky we were. What a treat to shoot for 12-16 hours, and then get to sit down and have fantastic meals! We would absolutely work with him again, and highly recommend his as a chef for any occasion.

The Dishes are so flavorful and delicately put together. I can tell a lot of time goes into preparing the dishes. I think what I like most is that all the ingredients are top shelf, and its prepared food that I can not get anywhere else at this level of quality. It's above restraunt standards. Especially impressed by the fact that they can hit the mark on so many dietary specific needs and still make it taste amazing! Get the Asian pear muffins! Or any of her famous baked goods! They will not disappoint.

I had Rainbow chef cater a baby shower. Lana was very helpful in the planning and menu selection and offered some great suggestions. The mother to be was on some food restrictions so Lana worked around that too. They prepared a nice mid day Mediterranean inspired meal with chicken lettuce cups, roasted vegetables with tahini sauce, a wonderful bruschetta, fruit salad and cupcakes in assorted flavors. The feedback on the food was amazing. Jenny showed up with the food and prepared it on my serving trays. She was on time and left my kitchen counter clean. I would highly recommend Rainbow chefs and will use them for future parties.

Lucas did a tremendous job for us. He accommodated last minute changes, dietary restrictions and additional guests. The food was superb. He personally delivered everything on Thanksgiving, quickly organized the meal for us, ensured everything was perfect and then excused himself. We had enough food for three times the number of people and had leftovers that saw us through the entire holiday weekend. All 14 of us heartily thank and recommend Lucas.

Chef Cheri catered an event for an organization that I am associated with and it was outstanding. Cheri food presentation was excellent and the food as so good. I was actually surprised at how much food she prepared for the price. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for catering services at a great price.

Everything about working with James was outstanding. I hosted a small dinner party for my family. Before the event, James suggested a couple menus based on our preferences. Communication before the dinner was excellent and clear. We all loved the food prepared--an arugula salad, chilean sea bass, and a lemon macaroon pie. He was also a pleasure to have in my house. Friendly, kind, and easygoing. I would definitely hire him again and highly recommend him.

We had a fantastic experience hiring John, and I would unreservedly recommend him. I was hosting an 8-person dinner party with a group of international friends at a rental property in Sonoma in mid November. He was very responsive to my fairly vague request on Thumbtack, instantly proposing a delicious-sounding 4 course meal with appetizers that took account of my preference for mostly vegan dishes. He was flexible and easy to work with at a very reasonable price point. He arrived on time with his wife to help, and they cooked, served and cleaned very professionally with a great friendly attitude. I would certainly hire him again.

Olive Cater team catered my birthday party in February and it was absolutely delicious. The buffet looked beautiful and had a wide variety of dishes with many vegetarian options. The shawarma was out of this world! Even though we eat a lot, we had leftover for the next day. It was fun to see the team cook and prepare the food at my house and they left the kitchen cleaner than it was before. I highly recommend Arkadi and Elinor service.

Ona Paek is a professional chef who prepared for our family an exquisite meal. The meal represented the regional fare of Korea and opened with an excellent kimchi seafood pancake. This was followed by a fresh salmon in a special orange sauce that really enhanced the flavor of the fish. Her talent of fresh healthy cooking and professional presentation made for a delightful home cooked meal. Additionally she is happy to share her passion and experience of food prepared to exacting standards.

Joan was recommended when our original caterer had an emergency and had to cancel at the last minute. Joan had been cooking meals for an elderly family member of one of my staff and they felt she might be able to fill in. We were a small retirement party of 15 celebrating with an informal cocktail party. Joan was able to create some tasty bites with less than 72 hours notice. I would utilize her skils again if the need arises!,

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
