My employer hired Baja's Tacos to cater a company event at Qualcomm Stadium on 12/27. We host an annual tailgate party for clients and industry partners, and have used other caterers in the past. I got quotes from 5 caterers, and ultimately went with Baja's because it was evident that they are very passionate about what they do, and really dedicated to quality and authenticity. (side note: although cost wasn't a factor in our decision, Baja's price was probably the lowest of all 5 companies) Jesus was always quick to respond and answer questions, and every interaction I had with him was pleasant. We were extremely happy with the service that Jesus and his team provided, and the food was amazing. We had three types of tacos (carne asada, pollo and adobada) with fresh corn and flour tortillas and extra chips and guacamole as an appetizer. I appreciated that they included all the toppings including various salsas, guacamole, etc. in the price, as well as rice and beans. It was also very important to us that the tortillas be made fresh onsite, and they did not disappoint! In fact, they made everything right there, including salsa, guacamole. The team arrived well in advance of the event start, and were completely set up and ready to go before any guests arrived. They also provided plenty of staff to serve and cook., so no one had to wait in line. Overall, we would highly recommend Baja's Tacos and look forward to using them again in the future.

Amazing! Sit down dinner for 32. Everything perfect. People asked me for her card. First time hiring a catered dinner won't be the last. She made the party a celebration from the specialty drinks and passed hors d'oeuvres to the fillets and fish and through to dessert. Lilian, YOU made my husband's birthday special! Thank You so much.

I just gave a dinner party Saturday September 23, 2017 and Chef Shawna did an outstanding job. The food was so delicious. We had the cheesy bacon turkey sliders and the meatballs for appetizers (so yummy). Our salad was a beautiful presentation and the chicken marsala! .....I've never had any that tasty. The cake with berries was outstanding. Thank you Chef and Ms. Paulette for making me look good and you took all the stress out of throwing a party. I hope we will work together again (the holidays are coming).

This was my first experience with Thumbtack. I am very pleased with both Thumbtack and June Sper. June was very helpful with the planning of my appetizer menu. Her platters were very well done and she made an amazing shrimp cocktail tower, which everyone commented on. Delicious stuffed mushrooms and meatballs. Her proportions were very generous. Everything was fresh and delicious. I will be using June again.

Everybody loved the food. There was plenty and we even had leftovers. The caterers didn't mind all the stairs they had to take to carry their stove, tables etc. We will hire them again for sure when we are in the area.

Lavonne was very flexible working with our small event. A small event of important people all with different food issues. She created an appetizer feast for meat eaters, vegetarians, gluten-free, dairy-free. Everyone was happy and well fed. She did a great job and we will use her again. I recommend Sage Bleu for your catering needs.

Joan was helpful with meeting my budget needs, without skimping on delicious appetizers and main course. I hosted a coed baby shower so the menu needed to feed hungry men. We opted for lunch of fried chicken, mac and cheese, salads and jalapeno poppers, yummmmy! Everybody was satisfied and full. The chicken was tender and tasteful, but the mac and cheese was the biggest hit of the party. The ingredients were all fresh in all dishes. I did not have Joan serve or anything like that, it was all buffet. Great food and love and will definitely use her again! She was on time and the food arrived at the right temp.

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!

We ordered lunch for our wedding rehearsal day through Steal Your Taste Catering Company. Our menu consisted of tacos, beans, rice, and salad. It was all delicious and affordable! We had a ton of left overs that kept us fed and satisfied all the week. David also rented a margarita machine on our behalf and has it delivered with all the mixings. This company was organized, yummy, and reliable! I would highly recommend David and Steal Your Taste Catering Company.

I experienced the work of Chef Geoff Cole during a Mystery Pop-up dinner at La Marque in San Diego. Geoff had created a wonderful 4 course meal which included wild salmon wellington paired with a beautiful white sauce, a ceasar salad in a parmesan tuile, and for the entree a smoked salmon stuffed chicken breast paired with the most amazing citrus jalapeno glaze and dessert was a foie grastiramsu. Chef Geoff has wonderful stories to go with each dish which made them that much more special. The whole night was a fabulous experience with delicious food, paired wine and wonderful people. The event was intimate and created the perfect date night. I would recommend having Chef Geoff cook at any dinner party or special event.

I hosted a bachelorette dinner party at my home. We wanted the dinner to be special and unique. Not only did Christine deliver she went above and beyond. The food was excellent from beginning to end. Everything was fresh delicious and exceeded any expectations. Chris is not only an amazing cook but lovely to be around. She made our dinner party so wonderful from the first bite of the appetizers to the last bite of dinner. She was very professional but not stuffy and uptight she had a great balance. All of the women could not have been happier and could not stop talking about how great the dinner was. I would recommend to anyone! We appreciate how wonderful she did.

Pret (Monique) catered a dinner party for my Board of Directors recently with a delicious meal. Monique made everything so easy for me, thought of every detail! It was a huge relief for me to just "host" this lovely evening, with Pret doing all of the work! Fabulous pasta and amazing layered dessert!!

Michael and his team at URBN went above and beyond to make our corporate event a success! Their Pizzas were delicious and very well received by the entire team! Plus the fact that they bake them on the spot in their oven creates an unique experience. I would highly recommend them to anyone and will certainly use them again. Thanks on behalf of the entire Fox team!
