Had my daughter's 4th birthday at a park & utilized Jesus's catering services. Everyone raved about the food-it was delicious. The servers arrived punctually, served food to the guests on time, and were very courteous. Will definitely use them again!

I would highly recommend Lilian for your catering needs! She catered our business cocktail party for approximately 25 people in our home supplying tray-passed hors d'oeuvres. She possesses a vivacious personality and is extremely fun to work with! Her culinary skills are excellent...the food was fantastic! (My personal favorite was the Sicilian Swordfish Skewers.) She will be the first person I call when I need a caterer again!!

Shawna is AMAZING!! She was the ONLY vendor we had for our wedding that didn't give us any difficulties. I emailed her asking to make changes and every time her response was "of course"! The food was amazing and her services were beyond outstanding. Shawna was flexible in creating our brunch menu and catered to a handful of vegans we had on our guest list. Even our non vegan guests enjoyed the vegan options! We were looking forward to left overs but everyone enjoyed the food so much, there were none!! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a caterer whether it be a wedding or any special event. I am definitely keeping her information in case I need a caterer again someday! If you want to be stress free about catering, choose Shawna! You won't be disappointed!!

June was fantastic! She was extremely responsive to every inquiry/email I had, and made it so easy to decide on our menu for our event (Bridal Shower). Her pricing is extremely affordable, and the food was delicious! Everyone loved all the food, but the crowd favorite was definitely the Cheesy Hashbrown casserole. I would highly recommend her for any event catering needs!!

We found Prime Cuts Catering through Thumbtack, we emailed Ron and he responded via phone immediately after. We put him in touch with the host and set everything up. At the party the staff catering was excellent: professional, friendly, clean, prompt. Everything you would want and expect. But the food was absolutely amazing!!! It was cooked to perfection and we are still craving it days after!!! Everything was delicious!!! The prices and service was great! We couldn't ask for anything better!!! We are super happy we choose Prime Cuts and will definitely be using it again. We are really grateful for Ron's flexibility and timing, and are so happy he catered for my Uncle's special day! Many thanks!! Sincerely, Ashley and Clifton Rider

Lavonne catered my 40th birthday bash. She made the evening so much more enjoyable. I didn’t have to worry about looking after the food or cleaning up. I could just enjoy my time with family and friends. And the food assortment was delicious. I’d certainly recommend her to anyone wanting a friendly, fun, quality catering service.

Fantastic meal, way exceeded expectations and was much more affordable than other private chefs we contacted. Would highly recommend to anyone hosting a dinner!! Originally we looked at making a group dinner reservation to dine out in Palm Springs for a birthday party, having Cucina Migrante come to our vacation rental made for a more relaxing and unforgettable dining experience. Francesco and Adisa are true pros!

David & his team did an amazing job for my 30th birthday party! He was very flexible and accessible at all times. I had a few occasions where I had to increase the number of guests, and he handled that with no problem. I also had a situation where I was not going to be at the house prior to the party, as we were on a large group party bus winetasting and he was accommodating and understanding and able to set up the food in our house without me even having to be there. The food was absolutely delicious and he worked with me to customize a menu that would fit the theme of the party but was also very affordable! He provided more than enough food and utensils, we were eating leftovers for days! I will definitely be using Steal Your Taste in the future! Thanks David!

We had a phenomenal Thanksgiving Dinner prepared and delivered by BAPS catering. We were expecting about 20 people for our holiday dinner and BAPS catering delivered a wonderful meal that everyone loved. The turkey was moist, the vegetables, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and pumpkin cheesecake were delicious. Needless to say, we had enough food to satisfy everyone and still had some great Thanksgiving leftovers. We would definitely recommend BAPS catering for everyone who wants tasty food cooked just the way you like. Thanks for helping us make our holiday dinner such a success!

I first hired Christine from Enjoy Dining In to cater a small business luncheon last year and not only was the food delicious, but the peace of mind I got from knowing everything regarding the food was taken care of was priceless. Christine took care of everything which freed me up to focus on the clients in attendance. Th folks at the lunch were delighted that they were able to have a delicious, healthy meal at the event, even the folks with special dietary needs enjoyed the gluten free options. Since then I've hired Christine a number of times and I'm always impressed with her food and her dependability. Looking forward to our next event together Christine! Thank you, I can't recommend this serve highly enough!

Daily Chew Catering dished up a bit of heaven on a plate for a holiday party recently and from the first time I contacted Carly until the last bit of food was gone, we were blown away by the entire experience. Daily Chew Catering offers a wide selection of menu options, so there's guaranteed to be something great for every palate, and everything is done well. Daily Chew does food service right, and I'll no doubt be quick to call back and start planning for our next event as soon as the time comes. Thank you for the professionalism, the amazing food, and your passion for great-tasting, incredible quality catering experience!
