This was an elegant dinner celebrating a recent marriage for seven people. It began with passed hot and cold hors d'oeuvres, cheeses and champagne, and continued with a dinner featuring a delicious beet borscht fsoup, a refreshing salad and a main course featuring fillet mignon and seared tuna. A white chocolate mousse with berries completed the sumptuous meal. Food preparation and presentation were excellent as was the cleanup.

We used Cazadores for our Startup Weekend. We reserved three meals: a lunch, and two dinners. The Indian buffet was delicious! It catered our vegan, vegetarian, and omnivore needs! Everyone raved about the Indian food! We also received a Mexican taco dinner. Similarly, Evan and his team grilled the meat and had hot tacos with all the fixings! There was even churros filled with caramel and vanilla custard! Bomb!!! Everyone also enjoyed the Chinese food. It was hard to resist!

Sat was the perfect Chef for my New Years Eve party. He was very responsive and great to work with planning the meal. He arrived right on time to begin prep and delivered a fantastic multi course evening. We choose a prime rib and a halibut option and both got rave reviews as did the hors d'oeuvres and appetizers. I'd highly recommend Chef Sat.

Debbie was absolutely outstanding. We hosted a dinner party for 12 people at our home and wanted to ensure it was a special experience for all. Debbie came up with a delicious and practical menu that was both delicious and took into account various dietary restrictions. She arrived early to prepare, was flexible to our timing when things started a little late, and ensured everything was tidy/clean before she left. In terms of food, everything was fantastic, but the Chicken Marbella and the Apple Crisp were especially delicious. Our guests left asking whether Debbie could help them with their next meal. We would highly recommend her :)!

Alisa was asked to do a drop off breakfast for our Corporate Farming Operations Team. The farm is in a remote location and we asked her to cater breakfast. She was on time, the food was perfect and was enjoyed by all!

Hi had the pleasure of selecting Chet to prepare a menu and work my Friendsgiving event which was my first time starting a tradition with my friends. From Chet's initial response to my quote request through the end of my event, the services provided were first class! Chet worked with me on my menu and I felt that he truly listened and took my vision into consideration when delivering my sample menu. I was extremely nervous since in the past, I would always be the one to prepare meals for my guest however, this year I wanted to do something different allowing me the opportunity to spend time with my guest instead of slaving in the kitchen. Chet checked in with me a few days prior to my event to confirm final details and then it was show time. He showed up on time as expected with everything needed along with a helper and the magic began. I am very satisfied with the outcome. From the taste and flavors of the food, the presentation, the hospitality Chet and his crew showed my guest, the clean up, to Chet's willingness to do more than expected (setting up tableware and more). A+ to Chet. He will certainly be my go to for future events in need of catering. Well done!

I hired Sean for a dinner party for 4 at my apartment. He did an excellent and highly professional job from start to finish -- from sending me a sample menu tailored to my request (he also has excellent sample menus on his website) to coordinating the logistics to pulling off an elegant meal with flawless service in my home. It's clear that Sean is committed to delivering a high-quality experience to his clients. He had lots of great touches like taking care of serving drinks, explaining the dishes, and printing menus for the event. I highly recommend his services!

Daniella was a perfect fit from Day 1. She made my birthday dinner party for 12 feel effortless with her thoughtful menu ideas, careful ingredient sourcing, flexibility, and responsiveness. It was seamless! She prepared a three course Mediterranean/North African meal, including hummus with tahine sourced from Israel, fresh veggie hors d'ouevres from the farmers market, delicious goat cheese/beet salad, a succulent chicken tagine, roasted veggies and cardamom spiced rice, and for the grand finale, a banana chocolate cake to die for! Perhaps most of all, I appreciated her openness and friendliness. She was a lovely addition in our home while she prepared the meal, and a true professional. Very, very happy that I was able to find her and have recommended her to others since.

I wanted to have a gorgeous dinner party for 30 of my colleagues at my home, and Graham and his staff made that happen. He took care of EVERYTHING - planned the meal, shopped, set a stunning table, brought perfectly paired wine and cooked and served everything. It was a seamless, lovely meal and we all felt like we'd been transported to an elegant yet relaxed restaurant. As the Host, it was a completely stress- free experience, and everyone is asking when we'll do it again...soon! Graham left everything spotless and everyone smiling. This guy can cook...and he's wonderful to have around. Two big thumbs up.

The Untamed Chef is not your ordinary caterer. Albert Hernandez is a professional chef who takes pride in all he does. Chef Albert was wonderful to work with from the very first hello. He took pride in putting together the menu that would fit what my daughter wanted. Just explaining everything over the phone tasted delicious. Not only did he provide delicious food, the entire staff was very pleasant. He arrived on time and after providing our meal, he left the kitchen spotless!!! I would recommend The Untamed Chef (Albert Hernandez) for your next time you need a professional chef.

Rose and her crew were wonderful. 5 star service and meal for sure. She prepared an absolutely delicious meal for our party of 12. She served 3 different appetizers, a wonderful salad, an entree of our choice and all were superb. Then to top it all off she prepared a fantastic dessert. It was so nice to stay in and enjoy the beautiful house we had rented in Santa Rosa while being served a wonderful meal! Highly recommend Rose!

Lucas Lovelace and his Team (2 server) helped us to celebrate our 100th Birthday (50 + 50 years) and brought a fantastic restaurant experience in our kitchen to the 20 guests at our home. From the first contact to the final touches on the three course dinner it had been a lot of fun to work with Lucas. He is very professional, courteous and an excellent chef with attention to detail. The food was outstanding and the Team left the kitchen as clean as they found it before the dinner preparation. We will definitely hire Lucas Lovelace again for one of our next parties!

Cheri has provided catering twice for my family and friends. The food was delicious and excellent servings. She is a professional chef and is very serious about her work and talent. I would highly recommend her. Not only is she good at cooking and preparation, but also good at negotiating financially to fit a budget for the needed menu. Have you tried her lemon pound cake? Desserts, etc... Those tender barbeque beef ribs. I cannot wait for more - hopefully soon... Thank you Cheri. Tenneh, Oakland, CA

We hired Farm to Table (Zachary Albright) to come to our house and prepare a meal for a birthday dinner for 14 people. The food was ABSOLUTELY amazing I wouldn't change a thing. The menu was extensive and the price was reasonable. I would suggest that he bring a helper as it was a little overwhelming for one person to prepare. I would highly recommend Farm to Table.

I hired Chef Dan for a corporate team dinner for 28 colleagues at a private venue in San Francisco. Dan is an absolute pleasure to work with. He is friendly, responsive, thoughtful, creative and detail oriented. Each step of the planning process went off without a hitch (menu selection, wine pairing advice) On the day/evening of our event, prep and service was smooth, and our meal was beautifully presented and delicious. Our team had an amazing time! I highly recommend Mise En Place & Dan!

We had a fantastic experience hiring John, and I would unreservedly recommend him. I was hosting an 8-person dinner party with a group of international friends at a rental property in Sonoma in mid November. He was very responsive to my fairly vague request on Thumbtack, instantly proposing a delicious-sounding 4 course meal with appetizers that took account of my preference for mostly vegan dishes. He was flexible and easy to work with at a very reasonable price point. He arrived on time with his wife to help, and they cooked, served and cleaned very professionally with a great friendly attitude. I would certainly hire him again.

i stumbled on itk and hired them to deliver food in 2012 when we were expecting our second child and they exceeded my expectations immediately. we have worked with them weekly since then because their food and staffing are terrific. The owner is an excellent, creative chef as well as a very nice person to work with. he knows our food preferences and brings us things we like without having to hassle with ordering specific things through a set menu or the computer; he knows us based on our conversations and figures out the menu. it's heaven when the food shows up. they samples a lot of world flavors and create amazing seasonal food. for a busy family like ours, itk beats other kinds of help in a big way: we eat healthier meals together in a much less frazzled state. wonderful service

Chef Sacha has prepared meals for me on several occasions. Whether a special event or dinner party, he always takes great care to ensure that the ingredients used are in season, and of quality. He is understanding and willing to accommodate any food allergies or aversions, and provides options for those with specialty diets. His twist on French classics creates flavor combinations that are tasteful and surprising, while his take on American bistro fare elevates your childhood favorites. His meals are always delicious, and the presentation impeccable. I highly recommend Chef Sacha for any of your culinary needs.
