Bar Tending Services was Excellent. The Bar Tender arrived right on schedule and immediately went to work setting up the Bar. The Bar Tender was able to quickly make all of our desired mixed drinks for our guests and was very capable with the alcohol and mixes. I will use Party Services and Staffing for upcoming events.

We had an amazing service from Rob. He helped create special drinks and was flexible when I needed him to come earlier than requested. Have had many bar services and this was the best so far. Thanks Rob and company!

Marcel was EXCELLENT! I had an unusual catering job, one he hadn't done before. He was terrific at following up with me, patient when I had to delay getting back to him, and took care to understand exactly what I needed. And then he carried it out to the letter, with perfect results. And he's super easy to work with. By sheer coincidence, one of my event attendees had used his catering services just a couple of months before, and also had only glowing reviews of his food and his service. If you have need for catering or chef services, you can't go wrong by hiring Marcel for the job. I can't wait to use him again!

Rob bartended for an afternoon at my 40th poolside birthday party, expertly catering to the needs of 20 guests with diverse needs and requests. His drinks were top notch and he was proactive in asking guests what they wanted and making the pool rounds. And working with Rob was a breeze, as he was responsive to email and had helpful suggestions beforehand about the shopping and drink list. Five stars!!

We live in Laguna Niguel, and Madkins Catering was on time and I remember saying to the waitstaff, "omg, there's still more food?! Needless to say there was so much food. Madkins Catering was upfront with me in the very beginning explaining how much of each appetizer or food item I'd actually be getting which is great. I think we adjusted the amounts a few times because I thought it was going to be too much food lol, and it ended up being still too much food.... But who's complaining? :-) My guests were very pleased with the meal and left on a very very full stomach. This company is very nice and professional and delivered exactly what I wanted. I forgot to do a review at the time of the event, but the event was about 2 weeks ago. Everyone please try them, the food is delicious and at a great price!

I was really under the gun preparing for my wifes birthday party and Andrew relieved a lot of my stress with his bar and event knowledge and guiding me on what to provide. He was on top of everything from the moment I contacted him. Andrew was absolutely amazing!! He put together a bar menu of specialty cocktails, he provided all the additional supplies needed, everyone loved his personality, he went beyond what was expected of him, and he truely made Sharon's birthday special. I most certainly will be hiring him in the future. I highly recommend him to everyone in need of a bartender/mixologist for their party or event!!

I hired Jill's bartending service for an event I was hosting in which we had no idea what kind of drinks we wanted. Jill was great because she took charge and helped us create a perfectly themed drink menu that was appropriate for our event. During the event, she was awesome! Not only did she keep the drinks coming but she kept the attendees entertained. Jill was truly everything you want your bartender to be!

I have nothing but great things to say about the service, quality, and overall delivery of Best Mobile Chef. From beginning to end, Shawna was very attentive and professional. As a bride, I can honestly say that planning a wedding is one of the most stressful experiences in your life; however, Shawna did an amazing job at making sure I was not stressed or worried when it came to the catering, bartending, and cake. She made sure that each and every need was met, and she even offered her assistance with cutting our cake even though that was out of her services. We sat down and went over every detail, and Shawna made sure to keep in touch throughout the way to maintain things and to make sure that we were on track with everything. Finally on the day of, the food and setup was more than what was expected. Our family and friends spoke so highly of the food and service. Shawna and her team was absolutely phenomenal! My husband and I would definitely book Shawna and her team again for a large dinner, and even desserts. We are both forever thankful and grateful!

Chef Mumsie catered an event at one of other properties and the food was so delicious, I hired her to cater our Christmas Party at our building (Bayside Terrace). She and her staff were very helpful, courteous and attentive to our needs. They were only scheduled to drop off the food due to another event occurring the same day, however, they not only dropped off the food, but stayed and assisted with setting up the warmers, provided other utensils we did not have and ensured that we were okay and ready to serve before they left. Overall, the food was delicious and the service was great! I would recommend her services to anyone who is looking for a quality catering company to service your event!

Open Bar provided services for my grandmother's funeral and I couldn't ask for a more professional service and at the price they charged, it felt like a steal. It was so easy to book them - Brooke, one of the owners was incredibly responsive and indulged all of my questions - and communicating my needs for the event was easy and stress-free. The bartender arrived early, was dressed very professionally, and maintained an air about him that was perfect for the tone (being a funeral and all). He made sure my parents were taken care of, and kept the bar area neat. I can't recommend Open Bar enough!

I hired smoking Gun bartending to do a annual halloween party me and my wife do every year. This time we wanted to make it more of a professional event, so we hired catering, security, and a Bartender by the name of Luke. I was very impressed at how Luke handled our guests needs, he even created some aweome spooky themed drinks off the top of his head. I as well as all my guest of about 95 friends and family had a amazing halloween bash and making the decision to hire Smokin Gun was one of the main reasons. Thank you luke for you’re fun attitude and tasty drinks. Defenitly recomend him the his service if you can book him!

Jordan is an excellent chef and caterer. He produces food that is way beyond the standard catering services. If you want cookie cutter catering go with someone else. If you want really great food at a great price stop on by or use his catering.

Wow what a wonderful Engagement Party we had at our home !! Making it even more fabulous was the outstanding bar tending service of Frankie J. We had over 150 people so he brought a back up bartender Carlos who was just as wonderful. People still can't stop talking about the VIP service Frankie J provided. Remembering many family members cocktails and walking around replenishing their glasses through out the night. The service he provided went way beyond a normal bartender for hire. I am so so so happy I chose Frankie J over all the other choices that Thumbtack offered. I will never hire anyone else and I've had many many parties. He was the very very BEST !!!!!!

I am beyond grateful to Thumbtack for connecting me to Chef Keith Prante and his team at Hautè Productions Events and Catering to cater my mom's 80th birthday celebration. They are absolutely A-MAZING! Chef Prante was one of two chefs who responded to my request via Thumbtack, and I also received a personal referral. Neither of the other caterers offered ANYWHERE NEAR the quality, selections, variety and value that Hautè offered at my price point. We had our tasting today, and it absolutely sealed the deal! Everything was delicious and the presentation was outstanding. I highly recommend Hautè Productions to any potential customer who appreciates excellence, accommodation and genuine customer service.

Hiring Steven and his phenomenal crew was the best decision we could have made for our event! We were tremendously impressed by Steven's professionalism and flexibility to all of our requests, he is an incredibly smart and resourceful businessman and was able accommodate our many brand-standards (for a very attractive price) and wow our guests with the results. The food was simply delicious, the service was exceptional (very warm and affable) and the set up/breakdown was seamless even in our small half kitchen and office space! If you're looking to work with a professional and provide a seamless catering service at your next event, I urge you to hire Steven!!

We engaged Roger to tend bar at a customer appreciation event this week. He was punctual and after he set up the bar area, he offered assistance with our last-minute preparations. During the event, he went the extra mile and proactively approached guests to check on them and provide refills if appropriate. While guests were eating, he cleared plates and helped with keeping tables tidy. After our guests left, he remained and helped with clean up. Roger was personable, professional and provided exceptional service, assisting in any way he could to make our event a success. We will engage him for our future events. Please take this review with a grain of salt ; ) … We don’t want scheduling conflicts when we need to hire Roger for one of our events.
