Chef Marcel and his associates did an outstanding job for me. He catered a full buffet dinner for 80 guests in a garden setting. The appetizers, entrees and sides were as lovely as they were delicious. His servers, assistants and bartenders were consummate professionals. He also assisted me with furniture and equipment rentals as well as bar supplies. He and his associates left their work areas in perfect condition. I highly recommend Chef Marcel and would definitely use him again myself.
We had a very special breakfast catered by Madkins catering. The food was amazing! All of our guests have been raving about how great it was. They are very professional and such a pleasure to work with. We will definitely hire them again in the future.
Chef J David cooked us a great meal and catering carnival provided great service throughout the whole process.
My team had a great experience. It was a Mexican buffet business dinner. The servers Kim and Joy were wonderful. The food was excellent. We would definitely use Wild Thyme Catering again. Thank you Susan!!!
Understand my trepidation never having a professional Chef cooking for me in my humble home. I was seconds away from meeting and greeting the highly acclaimed Celebrity Chef, MARK KEARNEY and his AWESOME associate Victoria. I could belabor the OBVIOUS, however, kudos for the preparation, presentation , moreover, QUALITY of the Signature Cocktails, Appetizers, and Dinner OUTSTANDING. Another exceptional highlight of our evening was Chef Mark Kearney himself. So easy to be around, not pretentious, humble, funny, kind and genuinely warm. If you should ever have the opportunity to meet this amazing man and have him prepare OATMEAL you will be impressed
Ms. Johnson did an amazing job catering my event, hosted at St. Vincent de Paul, Council of Los Angeles Thrift Store for the SDSA General Membership Meeting, of 100 people with a buffet, drinks, hors d'oeuvre, and recyclable cutlery. Ms. Johnson helped me determine the best menu for my clients and type of event to make specific to my needs and all within my budget! Her staff was friendly, helpful, and self sufficient. I highly recommend Super Food for Super People for your next corporate event!
I hired Sierra Madre to cater a come-and-go brunch for close friends and out-of-town guests the morning after my daughter’s wedding. Initially I was concerned about travel time from Monrovia to my home in the Larchmont area of Los Angeles, but Tonya (owner-chef) assured me she would allow for all eventualities and be there with plenty of time to set up and be ready before the guests arrived. The menu was mimosas, orange juice, lox, bagel & cream cheese (with the usual trimmings), vegetarian omelets, pancakes, cut fruit, and sour cream coffee cake, coffee and tea. Everything turned out perfect! Tonya and her assistant, Chris, were at my house early, got set up and were ready to go before the guests started arriving. The food was wonderful. The on-the-spot food, pancakes and omelets, were outstanding; and Tonya’s sour cream coffee cake was a BIG hit. The guests loved everything. The only glitch was an under estimation of how much lox, bagels and cream cheese the guests would consume. Fortunately, I had anticipated that could happen and had an extra 60 ounces of lox on hand and an extra pint of cream cheese, and we have two bagel shops within walking distance. Tonya was great to work with and having her cater made my life so much easier. It was a beautiful brunch, within my budget, and I am thankful that I took the chance on hiring her company as I had relied solely on the Thumbtack reviews when I made the choice. I’ll definitely use Sierra Catering again. The only suggestion I might make is that more attention be paid to the serving dishes used. Mixing bowls really aren’t attractive bowls to put on the buffet table.
Chef Alexis made catering a meal in LA from MI a breeze!! Her communication is excellent and her food is even better. The lunches were a HUGE hit with our clients and really helped make my company stand out! We highly recommend So Divine Catering and are already working with them for our next round of luncheons!
I can not say enough good things about Roger and Gabe. They catered our office's Administrative Professionals Day luncheon and did a fantastic job! They arrived on time, had the food ready on time, and constantly kept enough food in our buffet. We have a few vegetarians in our office and Roger prepared cauliflower steaks for them. By the time one of our vegetarians got to the BBQ, her cauliflower steak had been mistakenly eaten by someone. Without being asked, Roger ran over to a nearby grocery store and purchased another cauliflower steak to make for our employee. While there was plenty of vegetarian sides for her to enjoy and she didn't make a fuss, Roger still took it upon himself to fix a mistake that was our fault - not his. Oh and the most important part, the food is amazing! Everyone in our office was raving about the food, that is before we all fell into our food comas. :) Big Mann BBQ is fantastic. I cannot recommend them enough!
After searching through many caterers, I was referred to PDA Cuisine for my wedding. They helped so much with the planning and created an amazing menu just for my reception within our budget. They came to us and did a free tasting before we even booked them just so we could taste their food and decide if we wanted to hire them. After trying the food and meeting the Chef and owner, we were sold. They did a great job!
Steven came to our home, to serve my husband and me our anniversary dinner. He brought a beautifully printed out menu explaining the courses. He brought his own dishware which was lovely. From the well displayed appetizers to the meal itself ... we were delighted! The food was five star! And dessert was impressive! A very wonderful experience from beginning to end. What a treat to have an impeccably dressed chef walk through the door of our home and create pure deelish!!! Thank you to Steven!!! Michael and Cindy Thee Ashburn, Virginia
We hired Danesh for a party of 14. She put together a superb event. First, Daneen is a gem of a human being. She is wonderful to work with and makes everything easy. Second, she is an outstanding chef. The meal she prepared for my guests, including hors d'Oeuvres, mains, and desserts, was most delicious. The pairings were great, the tastes both subtle and bold. Third, Daneen has a great eye for making the plate look cookbook perfect. She is wonderful, and I cannot wait for the chance to hire her again.
Work quality - phenomenal Professionalism - fantastic Responsiveness - Joanna couldn't have been more responsive if she tried. Value- heck yes! Do you know how pricey mobile bartending and catering vendors can be in LA? This company is a steal considering the amount of collaboration and quality of service your receive. Punctuality - On time, super fast in setting up, even faster tearing down. I highly recommend this vendor. I planned an entire event from another state and Joanna made me feel like I had nothing to worry about on her end. Will work with her again for sure.
I left this review on the Knot.com and thought I would repeat this here. We loved having Feast as our caterer for our wedding and highly recommend them. "For our wedding we were connected with Marcus and Feast Catering through a good friend who used to work at the Annenberg Beach House. What a great recommendation! Marcus sat down with us and was flexible in working with our budget. We really appreciated this. We were able to do a tasting with him, and Marcus was very receptive to feedback. We asked for an Asian influence for the menu and Marcus and his team pulled it off beautifully and creatively. The food was delicious. They arranged a beautiful beet salad that looked great in all the photos. We had soju coconut cocktails. The wines were good too. My niece said it was her favorite wedding food ever - Marcus was so kind to ask if we wanted a special meal for the few children that were attending. They had mac n' cheese, chicken nuggets - their favorites! Marcus managed his staff well, too. They decorated the tables nicely with the linens and Feast arranged the heat lamps and all the rentals for us. All of the staff were courteous and friendly - great service. Feast assigned a special person to look out for us as the bride and groom and make sure that we had all that we wanted - seconds on the buffet, an extra piece of wedding cake, another cocktail, anything. Thank you so much, Marcus!"
It was a pleasure working with Lindsay. She was enthusiastic and provided us with very quick and efficient service (not to mention the food was great). I have events coming up in the future and I would definitely consider her for them.
Fitch's Kitchen catered my wedding at the Wedding Tree in Point Fermin Park in San Pedro, CA. The food was delicious, it was delivered on time, and Fitch was very understanding about a hiccup with my payment method and delivered food anyway, making sure my day wasn't ruined by an oversight (that was my own doing). I had several guests comment on the food and ask where it was from. THANK YOU!!!
Acacia table catering is AWESOME. I’ve hired her for two of my film shoots and she kept my cast and crew happy with delicious food! We will be using her again and again!
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! I have hired other caterers in the past, but none of them come close the experience I had with Chef Lofthouse and his team. Chef Lofthouse created a spectacular menu and it was delicious to eat. He and his team took care of all of the planning and set-up for the event. They served perfectly on time, and gave me and my guests such great service, that my guests are still emailing me to get Chef Lofthouse's phone number. You are missing out if you don't have him cater your party!
Chef LaTay prepared an Excellent Brunch for my Father- in-Law's Home Going Celebration. The menu she suggested was a Hugh Hit! Pleasing to the palette and very nicely displayed. Everyone raved about the cheese grits and roasted potatoes, I still get compliments and the event was nine months ago! Since the event was buffet style her team also took charge of announcing and directing when each table came up an added plus for our family. Thank you Latay!
I absolutely loved my party because Iris was there to take care of everything, including the cleanup. There was an abundance of delicious appetizers and her crew served them to our guests as well as made and served the drinks. We have heard from several people how beautiful and delicious everything was. We'll certainly call Iris for our next party!
We have used Chef Mikey for both meal prep and catering. He is truly a gem. The meals he has prepped are flavorful, good variety and perfectly portioned. The last party Chef Mikey catered for us, he made jerk chicken wings that people couldn’t stop talking about. I’m craving them right now! I would highly recommend him for meal prep, private dinner parties or catering!
