We LOVED Taqueria Cazadores! Very professional set up, more than enough (very delicious) food and super friendly staff. This is an amazing option for casual catering for work or friends for any occasion. Would DEFINITELY use Evan again - highly recommend!

Though he had had a late cooking night before and got our food ready a bit late, Sat prepared a great breakfast for our group of 15 friends. Sat worked with me on the menu and had good suggestions for what to put together. The food was creative and delicious, and Sat was a pleasure to have in our house.

We were in a bind. It was Tuesday and we were hosting a bridal shower with 40 guests on Saturday. Thumbtack was easy to use and quickly got us in contact with Stephanie. Stephanie was available to speak on the phone that evening, was flexible and creative with the menu, and affordable! The day of the party, Stephanie and her staff member were punctual and professional. Food was plentiful, too. After the luncheon, they helped clean the dishes and pack up the leftovers. Thanks to Stephanie's Catering, our shower was a success!

Working with any caterer can be an overwhelming process, especially when time allocation and budget is tight; and you want everything done right. With "A Plus Catering" I would say to trust the process. Like the line from the movie Shakespeare In Love, "It Will All Work Out In The End" and you and your guest will be extremely happy at the end of the process. Jennine and the staff at "A Plus Catering" are professionals and they will take good care of you and your guest. Her team was extremely courteous and demonstrated a high level of flexibility to meet the needs of my guest. Unlike big party chains, and hotel venues; making the customer happy is Jennine's top priority. So it goes without saying that the food was very good, the serving team was excellent, and if your event calls for a bartender; she got you! And, if there is a problem, call her; she got you! Open communication worked for me. "Peace of Mind" is what you get with "A Plus Catering". Peace of mind that she is there for you and that this is not just a business, but personal to her. I hope this review was helpful for you.

Debbie was awesome to work with. She was very quick to respond to emails and came up with a creative menu for my party. The food was the hit of the party, and no one went home hungry! The food not only tasted great, but looked beautiful. I would definitely recommend and use Debbie again.

We hired Chef Gray to prepare an intimate birthday dinner for my boyfriend. She was wonderful to work with. She prepared a creative menu and worked with me to align it to his food restrictions and tastes, while still keeping the interesting flavor combinations that attracted me to her work in the first place. She was on time, well-prepared, and efficient, and the food was fresh, unique, incredibly tasty, and perfectly presented. The kitchen was left orderly and clean. Beyond that, she was very pleasant, professional, and friendly, and we had a lovely conversation at the end of the evening. I would definitely recommend her to friends.

I had a great experience with hiring Kitchenina as our caterers for an event with 40 people. The communication was always prompt, polite and friendly. They did a great job on the day of the event to ensure that the food was delivered on time (despite the traffic/weather conditions) and made my job as the event organizer much easier. I would definitely work with Kitchenina again in the future, and regret that I did not take photos of the food! (Thanks for the brownies as well!)

Evertthing was cooked to perfection, looked beautiful and tasted delicious. I don't think it could have gone any better and I highly reccomend her for any occassion! Thanks again Rose!!!!!

This caterer prepared lunch for 30 people on Memorial Day for us. We found them on Thumbtack and we’re glad we went with them! Everything was as expected or better! First of all, their smoked ribs were AMAZING. Everything else (chicken skewers-very tender, deviled eggs with smoked bacon, garlic and honey meatballs, grilled corn, vegan pasta salad, arugula salad) was delicious as well. Everyone should add their Bourbon Banana Pudding for dessert, because it was so good! I love Paul Martin's banana cream pie, but this pudding was even better! I would definitely go back to them again. Too bad I forgot to take some photos!! And yes, they are very professional. Just tell Matt what you are looking for and he'll come up with a menu for you. Easy!

Angela is an exceptional caterer! We hired her for a long (10 day) job for a production crew, serving multiple meals for VERY hungry people. I heard consistently that they were the best meals the crew had ever had on a job. She was very thorough in her choices, and made it obvious that she takes pride in what she cooks, plans, and serves. We plan to make Angela our go-to caterer for ALL future jobs. As much as I would love to tell you to stay away so we can hoard her...you HAVE to hire Angela and try her meals for yourself!

Chef Anicette was absolutely fantastic! She created a unique and delicious menu for an in-home party using many of her original recipes which included pizettas, salad, crab fettuccine, chicken Parmesan and bananas foster. She was exceptionally responsive to all my requests and kept in close contact throughout the planning process. Her rates were much better than I had anticipated they would be and were worth every penny. Everyone at our party agreed that it was one of the best meals they had ever enjoyed. Chef Anicette has superb training and amazing talent. I will definitely be using her services in the future and have already suggested her to other friends and family members who are searching for catering services. 10/10 recommendation!

I wanted my own birthday to be one I could enjoy, I love cooking and I am always the one hosting and doing it myself! I decided for the first time to hire someone so I could have the night to enjoy. This is where Zack came in. I canteven begin to describe how great he was! He took over everything and made the night perfect! He worked with me on the menu and made everything seem possible, his menu he sent me looked amazing and creative. He arrived on time and immediately started preparing. The food was beyond my expectations, three entrees, which included a steak dish with delicious sauces, a Moroccan chicken stew and a shrimp dish with kale and corn, four side dishes, all unique and so perfectly complimentary to the entrees! My guests were so pleased. It really made my birthday! Thank you so much! Can't wait to have you back!

I was planning a family party with about 25 guests. Since I wanted to enjoy the party while everyone was here, I decided to get it catered. I requested bids on Thumbtack and received a few. I looked the caterers up on Yelp as well. Cooking with Traci had 50 reviews on Yelp and 49 of them were 5 star. I hired her and was very impressed with her communication, flexibility in planning the menu and suggestions. The day of the party, she arrived promptly and had everything ready as she promised. I had ordered salmon cakes with pesto dressing, roasted corn salad, green salad with fresh veggies and watermelon-feta salad. We also had two large loaves of freshly baked bread. Everything was so tasty and our guests loved it. I would definitely recommend Traci for catering. She also holds cooking classes in Berkeley. I hope to try one soon! Think about Traci for your next party!

We recently hired Eileen and her staff with What's Cookin to cater a backyard luau party. From beginning to end, she was very easy to work with. The bottom line is that her food was AMAZING! What a talent!! Our party guests raved about the dishes she prepared. Since the party was themed, we worked together to come up with the perfect selections for a summer luau. Her staff that worked the party with her were super friendly and smiley, professional, and instinctively knew how to "be there" for our guests needs. As the hosts of the party, my husband and I were able to focus entirely on our guests, which is exactly what we were looking for. We were all very impressed with everything, and are certain we found our new favorite caterer! Thanks Eileen and your staff for a job well done!

What an incredible pop-up and delicious food! Dennis was awesome in working with our organization for our holiday party. He was very responsive and helped us organize platters for ~80 people. His food was demolished by our team well before the night ended. Highly recommend!
