I hadn't used thumbtack before when I inquired via a Google search, about finding a good caterer/chef. After receiving numerous responses, I checked out 3 and asked for proposals. As soon as I heard Chef Marcel's voice, I sensed his sincerity and eagerness to please and I appreciated his warmth during our business conversation. While I wasn't able to make a decision right away due to an extensive business trip abroad, I told him I would call him upon my return to the U.S. When I returned, I told him that he was competing against another caterer and he simply said "what will it take to gain your business" and I instantly knew he was the person I wanted. I told him that I would first need to taste his food before a final decision was made and he invited me to his home where inner his lovely wife a baby girl. After tasting his delicious food, I told him he had the job and 2 others, all within a month's time period. Chef Marcel aims to please and my events have all turned out beautiful with delicious food and caring service. Relationships and trust are very important to me and chef Marcel along with his wife, are now a relationship that I truly value. I will continue to use his services for the many future events that I've planned while enjoying the additional benefits of working with a "friend". Give him a call and I'm confident you will choose no other.

I needed a caterer for my dad's funeral reception. Spoke to other caterers but Carolina of Gourmet Lover's Catering was the only one who gave her condolences, this meant a lot to me. The full service presentation was tasteful, the food delicious and reasonably priced. There were no exta added on fees like the other caterers. I highly recommend Gourmet Lover's Catering, Boris & Carolina are a wonderful team and you will not be disappointed.

Madkins Catering catered for East Los Angeles College bookstore Department. We were having a holiday meeting; Madkins Catering was punctual and the food arrived hot and ready to serve. The staff was very friendly and professional. Madkins Catering is very cost efficient and will try to work with your set budget. I had a set company budget and Madkins Catering was able to accommodate us. Besides the food being delicious we had a good amount left over as well. We have alot more events in the near future, there's no doubt who we'll be using for catering. Thank you Delores and Madkins Catering for making our holiday meeting that much more memorable.

In the past five years my husband and I have attended several fantastic entertainment and charitable fundraisers produce by The Mark Kearney Group. Our memorable highlights include The Jewel's of France in Beverly Hills for Juvenile Arthritis hosted by Teri Hatcher , MKG Emmy suite for breast cancer hosted by Adrienne Malouff, Project Angel Food hosted by Lisa Vanderpump. I hired Chef Mark and his fabulous catering company for our wedding this April in Newport Coast California. We absolutely adore his five star Pacific Rim cuisine. The catering crew was professional, kind and captivating. It truly made our Wedding Day special.

I had less than a week to throw together a reception in LA - a city I don't live in - and Chef Mumsie came to the rescue. You have to take a leap of faith when booking caterers on short notice and with no prior knowledge of their work and Chef Mumsie came through! Our reception was beautiful and seamless. The food was delicious and the staff was very professional. They made it so easy for me and my group and the event was great.

I decided to look for a caterer for my Mom's celebration of life and my internet search lead me to Thumbtack. After inputting my needs I quickly received a response back from Tonya at Sierra Madre Catering with a detailed quote and attached menu. When I called to speak with Tonya I immediately got a good vibe from her voice. She seemed excited and eager to help plan our event and made me feel comfortable that everything would be taken care of. I am so thankful I decided to use Sierra Madre for my event. We ordered appetizers and desserts and they arrived and set everything up, brought their own trash cans and kept the tables clean as people were done eating. The staff was professional and nice and their food was DELICIOUS! Many of our guests gave feedback that the food was great and they even ran out of business cards because a lot of people were interested in having their info. At such a difficult time with the passing of a loved one, these details are important but not ones you want to worry about yourselves and Tonya and Sierra Madre staff took that burden off my shoulders and I am so thankful for that. I will recommend them to anyone in need of a caterer for any event and if I could give more than 5 stars I most definitely would!! Thank you Tonya and Sierra Madre Catering!!

We highly recommend Chef Alexis and her wonderful team for your next event. We had been having difficulty trying to find a caterer who not only understood our needs for the event, but also was able to accommodate our last minute booking. Chef Alexis was more than accommodating with so many last minutes changes (menu, setup, guest count, staffing needs), always available to speak to be sure she and I were on the same page. She even went out of her way to hire additional staff to fit our “esthetic” for the event. Day of the event, Chef Alexis and her team went above and beyond to be sure everything ran smoothly. She was too able to work with our limited space to create a beautiful and delicious catering for our event. Thank you, Chef Alexis, for all your incredible help!!

One Hot Dish Catering Co. is amazing. They came down to Yorba Linda last month to cater our wedding of over 125 people. The wedding started at 6pm and they showed up very early to set up, meet with my wife about the location and agenda as well as to handle all the prep that was required. They went above and beyond with their gourmet 50/50 burgers and 3 cheese macaroni. Our guests are still complementing us on the food and catering we had at our special day. I would recommend One Hot Dish Catering to anyone looking for a small or large party. They are classy and will make sure you are well taken care of. We will be using them for all our events in the future.

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.

Nancy is amazing! I hired Nancy to cook for my clients surprise birthday party and it was the best decision ever! The food was amazing and plentiful! My client was so happy with the way everything turned out and so was I. As an event planner it is very important to have a caterer you can count on, someone who knows exactly what to do, how to do it and what it means to be professional...Nancy you are all that and much more! Thank you for being amazing and I look forward to many more events together!

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!

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!
