We were very late, needing catering for a party of 60 people 10 days later. They were very professional and helpful. The food and service was great, the guests were very happy.
Just a great experience all around. The food was phenomenal. Sat was accommodating and flexible, and the party was everything we could have hoped for. Our birthday dinner party for 16 went out without a hitch. Thanks so much!
Food was great (especially the bacon-wrapped apricots - YUM!). Drop-off was on time and pick-up was hassle free! Would absolutely call them again for my next party catering needs!
Debbie catered a party for my sister and I, for our birthday. We didn't have many ideas on what food to serve, only that we wanted appetizer style. Debbie was extremely helpful with supplying ideas on what to serve and how to serve them. knowing we were on a budget, she was very aware of cost and did all she could to help stay within our budget, She was also extremely flexible when it came to buying the food, knowing that some foods would need to be purchased a day in advanced due to spoilage and also being able to buy food that could be stored longer. Overall she was wonderful person to work with, especially during those crazy moments when we didn't know what we were doing. we a least knew that the food would be taken care of. As for the food, everything was FABULOUS! And the party was a huge success. I would hire her again in a heartbeat.
Delicious food, great service, kitchen perfectly clean afterward! The easiest and best dinner party for 12 people I have ever hosted!!
I have never used a caterer before so I really did not know what to expect. I had an idea of what I wanted and a vision of how I wanted things to go. Deborah and her assistant went above and beyond my expectations and vision. We discussed a plan prior to the party and I let her know I just did not want to worry about anything and be able to enjoy the party. She allowed me to do just that and the service she provided was excellent. I unfortunately had some stragglers come in late and she eagerly fixed them a plate with no questions asked. Everything was just as clean, if not cleaner, when they left as it was when they arrived. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking of having a caterer at their party.
We had a beautiful outdoor birthday party. This was a 70th birthday, with teens and youngsters helping out. Chet's attitude and kind interest in our small party made the occasion wonderful. He prepared amazing oysters, shrimp, and lobsters on the outdoor grill and provided an elegant table service. He was patient with the timing problems presented by toddlers in the party, and made sure everyone had fun! We stayed in budget and Chet was very respectful to support my choices for decor, timing and supplies. I can't wait to hire him again!
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!)
My husband and I booked Daniella to teach us an Italian cooking lesson. We had so much fun! Daniella was super patient, friendly, and taught us how to make some really delicious dishes. We can't wait to try them out for a dinner party we're hosting soon. I highly recommend Daniella and her services.
Rose Johnson Catering was my party partner for our son’s engagement celebration last weekend in Orinda. The party was a huge success, and Rose and her team deserve much credit for the success. Rose responded to my Thumbtack inquiry with a prompt, thorough, and reasonable bid. However, after viewing her beautiful website, I replied to Rose that while I personally thought her menus were perfection, my son had specified that he did not want the food for his party to be “too fancy.” I told Rose the party would be a casual afternoon affair on our deck and I feared her culinary talents would be wasted on my son and my husband. Rose persevered, pointing out in her reply that she could do a barbecue with a southwestern flavor. The food need not be "fancy," she observed, but it should be tasty. And she sent me a custom menu that my son, his fiancée, my sisters, my husband and I all proclaimed perfect, including seared medium rare tri-tip of beef with chimichurri sauce, grilled cilantro chicken with tortillas, chipotle laced potato salad, and Mexican rice, bean, and corn salad. But Rose did not stop with sending me the menu; she said she would use my kitchen and grill on my deck, ensuring the food would be fresh as well as tasty. And after I hired her, she came to my home to check out my kitchen, my deck, and my grill and advised me on renting and setting up dining rounds and serving tables, as well as how to ensure good traffic flow for 50 guests. Rose is a real party expert, and I am not, so her advice was very much appreciated. The day of the party, Rose, Floricel and Esteban arrived a full two hours early and took charge. I hired Rose Johnson Catering for the food, which they delivered beautifully. As it turned out, they helped with the entire party, going above and beyond in many instances and showing poise and flexibility in the face of surprises, like my son’s decision to give a speech and set off a round of champagne toasts before dessert. Rose poured the champagne herself. Several guests asked me during the party: Who catered this? Who is your caterer? I happily provided several referrals to Rose Johnson Catering. Guest comments about the food were very positive: Mike: “The tri-tip was great.” Helen: “The grilled chicken was fabulous.” Kay: “I loved the potato salad. And the guacamole was wonderful.” Liz: “So nice to have so many dishes gluten-free.” Cindy: “The brownies were amazing. I told them so.” Bill: “Those parfaits were a big hit.” Matt: “Great food! Great service!” There was plenty of food for 50 guests, even with 1/3 of them being hungry 20-something friends of my son’s from high school and college. We even had leftovers, which Rose packed up and left in my refrigerator, along with leaving my kitchen cleaner than she found it. My husband, son, future daughter-in-law and I made a brunch of the leftovers the next day, sharing the delicious food and happy memories of a wonderful party. Best of all, this was the first party I’ve ever hosted where I had a great time myself. I don’t think I’ll have another big party again without booking Rose Johnson Catering!
I hired Kitchen 350 to cater a company holiday party of about 30 people in the Mission district of SF. Matt and his team were perfectly on time to prepare at the venue. He was also accommodating with the menu (we asked for French and BBQ), and the food was delicious! Not one complaint from an office of somewhat picky eaters. Also, his server, Daniel, was so attentive the entire party. It was a level of service I didn't expect from a caterer, and it was sincerely appreciated. They also had everything cleaned up by the time the party was over. I would definitely hire again!
We hired Lindsey to bartend for our 40th birthday party. The party was 70's theme and Lindsey did a great job creating some signature cocktails and shots and poured cocktails that were popular in the 1970's. She even came in costume. She was on time, professional and kept the bar clean and organized all night.
Catered our New Years party for 16. Appetizers and food were excellent. Specializes in veggie, but did a meat course for us. All ingredients fresh, organic and gluten free. The gnocchi was to die for!
DidiCoco and her team catered my party in June. The food was amazing!! So flavorful and delicious. (Caribbean Wings, Confetti Rice Pilaf).She and her team was on time and very nice.
Exceptional. We hired Zach to cater and teach a sushi making class for 6 couples at my house for my wife's birthday. He was incredibly responsive and thoughtful. We emailed and spoke several times in advance of the event about what my expectations for the evening and the types of fish we wanted and what we wanted to make. He also give me a lot of tips on sake -- so I went out and bought several bottles of sake for the guests to do a sake taste testing He drove down to silicon valley from Sonoma, purchased the fish fresh from his contacts at Fisherman's Wharf, and arrived at our home later than expected but well before the guests, so we had plenty of time. He prepared 3 appetizers for us -- an excellent Japanese beef dish, a poke/ponzu dish and a scallop and moon fish sashimi dish with a coconut sauce. Then he taught the group how to make rolls and we each made several rolls with a wide variety of fish and ingredients that he brought. Zach explained a lot about sushi making, from how he evaluates the fish, how it should be cut, how sushi restaurants operate, what to look for at sushi restaurants, etc. His involvement in the evening beyond just preparing the food really helped make the party a lot of fun.
Kincy catering did a fantastic job at my party, the food was excellent and he was very professional.
Cheri doesn't just bring great food to the festivities, she puts her heart and soul in every bite. Professional, punctual, organized, creative, and incredibly joyful; it was an absolute pleasure to work with her at a recent party at my home. I highly recommend Phiesty Food for your next gathering! Thank you Cheri.🍻🍰🍗
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!
Even though we didnt use Dave, his prompt, professional and thoughtful nature were greatly appreciated! Since this is to be a group of 8 parents giving a party....when it is my turn to host my own party, I will definately use Dave.
I hired Basic Catering for a dinner party. We had salmon and chicken breasts with asparagus and a variety of salads. The food was amazing and the presentation was beautiful. Will definitely order from them again.
Amazing food and an amazing person! Chef Niko catered a party at my house last night and it was perfect! The food was outstanding! She is so easy to work with. I would definitely hire her again. If I could give more than 5 stars I would!
