I don't even know where to begin! Jose is an amazing caterer and I am so happy we hired him for our wedding this past Friday. When we were first tasting caterers food they all seemed metiocre but Joses was amazing! We hired him on the spot! Not to mention he was the most reasonable price! Then everyone was making me nervous saying that catered food is never as good when they have too cool it in large quantities (we had 180 people). When we got to the reception everyone was already eating appetizers and happy. When Jose spotted my husband and I he came up to us and told us he had made us each an appetizer plate and if we wanted it. Then he came up to me to make sure I wanted dinner served when I had originally asked. I did and he brought us the first 2 plates. The food was amazing! Just as good as I remember! Everyone was so pleased and kept talking about how the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding! That was exactly what I wanted! His bartender was amazing and all his staff was so friendly. The setup looked nice and professional. The drinks he brought were great and everyone was talking about how great the mint water was! Then I ordered cheeseburger sliders and French fries to be served late night and they were amazing! He even brought wings and everyone was so excited! They went fast and by the time I got over there everything was gone. Jose told me let me get your plates and pulled out two foil covered plates. He always thought of us first and without him I wouldn't have eaten. All day everything had hiccups and my rentals were late, everything was slightly wrong except Jose! He really came through and went above and beyond. I will definitely hire him again for any events and recommend him to the fullest!

We had a Celebration of Life for my husband who passed away May 4. Michael was wonderful and so experienced. We did a Mexican buffet and that is one of his specialties. My guests absolutely raved about the food. The staff were wonderful, helpful and caring. They told me at the end of the evening that they ran out of business cards so many people asked! I was nervous about doing this large gathering of 80 people and Michael worked with me and advised me like the professional he is. I can't say enough good things.

Michelle was fast to respond, gave us a quote immediately, followed up appropriately and delivered a fantastic buffet - hot and tasty. Her prices are very fair and the food quality top-notch. For not having a lot of time between need and delivery - she was extremely helpful in deciding what we needed and thinking of the things we didn't. I highly recommend her and if I'm in the area again I would not hesitate to engage her services. Thanks again Michelle - Kathleen and Chris Gallavan

We hired Jeff and his staff for our wedding weekend. Friday we had a "meet and greet" BBQ and Saturday Jeff provided the food for our buffet style taco bar. We live in San Diego so we were really in the dark about Palm Springs area caterers. The food and the presentation was outstanding. We gave Jeff ideas for what we wanted and he took control and delivered all of it and more. He is a pleasure to work with and makes every effort to ensure the food is excellent and that everything runs smoothly (even when it's not his responsibility). Jeff helped with many components of our weekend, including putting us in touch with a reliable party rental business and culinary artist for the wedding cake. We are eternally grateful for Jeff and the Creating Catering staff for being part of our special weekend.

Awesome is the perfect word to describe events by Jessica! I had to back-to-back parties in early December that couldn't have been more perfectly executed. Jessica thought of absolutely everything to make each party a success. From the caterers...to the bartender...to the waitstaff that she hired, all were perfectly informed, professional and fantastic at their jobs. The food was amazing, the staff was prompt and polite. Both parties could not have been any better! The first person I will call before planning my next event will be Jessica! She's AWESOME!

We asked our friends and family members who had recently been married what they thought the most important part of the wedding was, and they unanimously said "THE FOOD". From the moment we requested a quote Bill's attention to detail made it a wonderful and memorable experience. We were provided with and absolutely delicious lunch at our tasting; where Bill customized our menu to fit our unique wedding theme. The staff was friendly, informative, professional and genuinely warm and kind. Bill's help however moved beyond his fabulous food. For any and EVERY coordination mishap, he was there with creative and inventive solutions. His staff went above and beyond, even assisting in set up and decoration. We were truly overwhelmed by their generosity and their willingness to be of assistance. On our wedding day, as we ran from the car to the venue to avoid the terrible storm; we were greeted by Bill with a mini buffet for the bridal party so that we would have a chance to actually eat at our wedding. To say the food was amazing is an understatement. I cannot describe how delicious it was or how beautifully and artfully arranged. I truly cannot do it justice. When asked, our guest said that hands down, it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Our menu included custom flank steak sliders with asian slaw, a variety of sushi, mini ribs, chicken skewers, grilled vegetable stuffed crepes, procuitto wrapped asparagus, endive spoons filled with tabouleh, chicken sate, and so much more. The service was impeccable and after everything was done, the staff cleaned and left everything immaculate. Most importantly, Bill was sensitive and understanding of our situation. You see , we were two brides. Bill and his staff were shining examples of what it is to treat everyone with equality and dignity and respect. We were afraid of vendors not wanting to work with us and Bill took all that anxiety away. Through his vast network he found amazing and supportive vendors who were ready to celebrate with us and were empowered by our decision to get married. We cannot thank Bill enough for the many kindnesses he bestowed on us and we cannot wait to eat at his amazing restaurant again. - C & A

Chef Sarena prepared an amazing dinner and breakfast buffet for our 20 guests at a Palm Springs 40th birthday party. The food was spectacular and received universal raves from the guests. Chef Sarena was also a delight to work with. She was responsive to messages and helped plan a delicious menu for both meals, soliciting the host's preferences and designing a menu that reflected them. But, again, the highlight was the food -- made with fresh ingredients and prepared with a meticulous attention to detail. I would use Chef Sarena again in a heartbeat!

Zeke Casas catered my daughters Quinceñera, he made Chili verde, rice, beans, fresh salad, an amazing salad dressing, rolls, and salsa. So many people loved the food.. so much flavor with every bit.. there was not one thing without flavor.. the family rated his food as the most amazing, delicious, dish they have tasted. Zeke and his crew are very respectful, helpful, and caring. They take the time out to make sure everything was to your liking.. they left the hall kitchen spotless, like no one had ever used it.. I give Zeke and his crew 10 stars.. amazing job, amazing food, and I recommend him for your next event... never can go wrong with a great caterers..

The flowers and the decoration are extremely pretty and I loved it so much. She really did a lot of wonderful works and helped us had a beautiful wedding. I would highly recommend her to be your planner. Thank you Esther!!!

Qworks did an excellent job catering my Mother in Law's Celebration of Life. We ordered the cheese and cracker platter and anti-pasta skewers for appetizers. For lunch we had "the works" which included tri-tip and grilled chicken, with salad, green beans with roasted tomatoes and their cheesy potatoes. The beverage package included cucumber water, strawberry lemonade, ice tea and coffee service. They even stayed and served our guests and hand carved the tri-tip. They set everything up and tore it down making the day go perfectly. They even brought the paper goods and all condiments. I highly recommend Qworks for your next event.

We found Joey on Thumbtack and after reading her profile we thought she would be the perfect choice for our personal chef dinner for my daughter's bachlorette weekend. Besides being a ton of fun Joey's food was amazing! Especially the Greek Brushetta!!! Yummy! Joey was a perfect fit and even though we had a problem with the rental home's BBQ she made it work. I do think that if Joey had a helper it might of been easier on her. Our crazy night in with Joey as our personal chef for my daughter (the bride to be), her bridesmaids/girlfriends and myself (mother of the bride) was everything we wanted! We truly enjoyed our evening and it was such a treat :)

From the beginning Chef Gil was extremely attentive to what I was looking for in my menu. I really liked the fact that unlike other caterers who have their preset generic menus we created a menu together that was totally unique and tailored to what I wanted. He also took the very specific ideas I gave him and put his own touches on them adding a real level of elevation (even the water station had cucumbers and lemons and looked gorgeous).

We ordered a charcuterie for 40. Tanya, the owner, came to interview us and to gather information about our event and our needs. She submitted a proposal which met all of our needs. Her proposal included food, labor, disposables, and rentals. She recommended a. Vendor for centerpieces that were hand made, and stunning. When rain was predicted for day of event, she came to our home day prior to event to help us set up an indoor event as opposed to an outdoor one. On day of event she picked up a cake that was outside of her scope of work. She showed up promptly and had food beautifully displayed by time event started. She stayed through event helping to replenish buffet and serve Champagne and cake. She stored left over food and cleaned up kitchen and moved rentals out of house at end of event. She was professional and treated all our guests with great respect. She provided a stress free event for me, and exceeded my expectations. She was excellent at sourcing food, vendors, and at providing suggestions. I will use her again, and just today recommended her to a local business owner who hosts private events.

Meraki is a Greek word used to describe putting a lot of love, creativity and soul into something which is why Jory Pomeranz chose the name. It is easy to smell, taste and see that a lot of love goes into each Meraki Meal. Jory has a natural ability to combine flavors. He can time every course so they are not only cooked at the perfect temperature, but served at the correct temperature and add flare to something basic like a chicken thigh. Even the grill marks on a piece of chicken are perfectly spread out and just enough to give the chicken a grill flavor without ruining the juicy tenderness we all strive for when making chicken. Jory can make things that you hated as a kid taste delectable. Jory adds spices and sauces up until the minute prior to serving to make sure each plate is perfect. I once saw Jory save what was about to be terrible chicken tacos by creating a homemade taco sauce from a nearly empty refrigerator. With Meraki Meals the food suits the season. Who wants to eat watermelon in October when pomegranate and apples are so delicious. Every Meraki Meal tastes like the season and uses fresh fruits and vegetables. Meraki Meals put a healthy spin on what looks and tastes like a calorie nightmare, but each meal is filled with proteins and vitamins. Not only is the flavor impeccable, the presentation is a work of art. Even when catering for 35-40 people, Meraki Meals are served in beautiful silver dishes. Meraki Meals are great for crowds of any size. I have to make a conscious effort not to scrape my plate clean every time I have had Meraki Meals. I highly recommend Meraki Meals for a party of any size, but especially 8-12 people because this might give the chef a chance to sit and talk with you which is a treat of its own!
