We were looking for catering services for our small and intimate wedding during December 2015. Food was a big part of the event, but we also had a limited budget, so we shopped around to find someone that would fit our needs. Pete understood our menu concept right away and was able to work with our budget. He didn't fuzz about small details that we wanted to incorporate and went above and beyond to make them happen. He even provided ideas on how to improve the overall experience, not just the food. We interviewed lots of chefs and catering companies and we couldn't be happier about working with Pete. Our foodie friends and family members praised the food, the presentation was extraordinary and the service was very professional. Pete also provided support for the drinks, bringing with him a great mixologist that crafted creative drinks for the crowd. Finally, the next morning Pete prepared brunch for guests that spent the night at the venue (and ourselves) and even tho some things did not go as planned for him (the professional oven broke down!), he was able to have everything ready flawlessly by the time we woke up. Thank you Pete for taking care of such important part of our event! We are looking forward to working with you again.

Meal was amazing; we asked for a 100% vegetarian meal and all of the courses were fantastic; he really knows how to prepare vegetarian food. Sat was engaging and professional and the service and food were outstanding. We understand why he was voted best personal chef of Thumbtack - we would definitely hire Sat again!

This was my first experience ordering catering service so I wasn't sure what to expect. Debbie did a great job for our group. The food was delicious and plentiful. Debbie worked with some special criteria to make the deliveries to us but was on time and well prepared. Thank you Debbie for the great food and all your hard work!

Stephanie catered brunch for 13 of us and everything was fantastic. She was right on time, everything was wrapped up and ready to serve, and all of the dishes were delicious! A couple of friends even asked about how I found her in case they had a future event,I would definitely use her catering service again.

Deb makes the most amazing quiche and is such a pleasure to work with. I worked with her when she prepared quiches for our Christmas party at our home. She takes such pride in her quiches and her full service catering and has developed this into an outstanding business. I would recommend her to cater your next event and assure anyone that she delivers the best quiches and excellent services along with her great smiles and laughs.

We have found Alisa through Thumbtack based upon the reviews and were extremely pleased with her Catering Service for our Wedding. Alisa and her team arrived early, set up the tables and had the venue smelling wonderful with all of the food she cooked. Not only did her and the team assist with the dinner service, but they also cleaned and packed away all of the rental settings. This was extremely beneficial and gave both us and our friends additional time to enjoy the day. If anyone ever needs Catering Services in the East Bay, she is the best and has the most reasonable prices! Greg-n-Greg

I've known Grace for many years. I have been over to her house for home cooked meals that were truly gourmet, and delicious. She also prepared some food and sold it from her home. On the level of catering for large parties, I went to our friend Dave's party last month were Grace did the catering. The food was flawless, delicious, with great presentation, and great variety. I strongly recommend Grace for catering your events.

From the point of connecting with Daniella about my dinner party, to meeting with her in person beforehand to discuss menu and pricing, and on to the event itself, there was never a time I didn't feel confident in her experience and her ability to pull off a fantastic Greek dinner for my friend's 60th birthday. And that she did! My friends are still raving about her and I could not have been more pleased with every single detail. Food was fabulous! I highly recommend Daniella for any catering needs or for cooking for a private party. She handles it all. Wish I could have her cook for me on a regular basis!

I was planning a Celebration of Life service for. Very dear friend. The event location was in Walnut Creek, CA and I was in Florida. Dawn, from Aurora Catering, was so helpful in the planning of the catering for about 100 people. She took so much of the stress off of me with her advice. The food selection was delicious and well displayed. Aurora's staff was unbelievably organized, efficient and wonderful. Lindsay, who was my contact that, made everything run so smoothly I didn't have to worry about anything except circulating among my guests. I would highly recommend Aurora Catering.

I've used DidiCoco'a for all my catering needs from an intimate gathering of 6, to my Mother's 70th birthday party for over 100 guest. What I appreciate the most is her attention to detail, from her fabulous food( chicken wings and pralines to die for) to her professional service. You the customer envision it she delivers with style and elegance. I've confidently referred DidiCoco'a to friends and coworkers who have voiced the same sentiments. The prices are competitive, however you get what you pay for, which is fresh top quality ingredients. DidiCoco'a is my go to catering service!!

I didn’t take pictures to show you guys but Cheri did an excellent job on my fiancé’s and my dinner for two. Not only did the food taste great but the set up was very nice. We had no hesitation hiring her for our upcoming June 2019 wedding! She will give you quality food for an affordable price. Not to mention she also has other vendors if your looking to have her company cater your wedding. She puts time and detail into her creations. I definitely recommend her.

Daniel was an amazing caterer. He was extremely prompt and came with most of the catering gear he needed (which is good because I have very few kitchen tools). Our entire group loved the food: cheese/meat course, tuna tartar, couscous, salmon, and tiramisu. It was delicious! And as a bonus, we did not need to clean up :)
