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!

I had an amazing experience with Carolina and Gourmet Lovers Catering!! The food was incredible but the personal customer service put them over the top! I hired them for a baby shower event and so many guests asked me where I got the food from! Will definitely look to them again for my next event. 110% satisfied!

My husband and I highly recommend MR. WORLDWIDE CATERING! Jose, the Owner and Chef, was incredible every step of the way, we were looking for a caterer for our wedding only a couple months out after another caterer fell through and Jose stepped and truly outdid himself! I wish I had found him in the beginning. He went above and beyond all our expectations. Mr. Worlwide Catering's food is absolutely delicious! The variety of food options and Jose's willingness to work with our tastes was phenomenal. Literally, every wedding guest told us they LOVED Jose's food and were very impressed with the varietes and flavors. Sadly, often wedding food is bland and uninspired, luck for us Jose is passionate about his food and ensured it was absolutely mouth watering! Jose's incredible food is only outdone by his work ethic, reliability and impeccable professionalism! He truly cared about us and our special day, ensuring our needs were met, even personally serving us our plates to ensure we sat and ate knowing weddings get hectic for the bride and groom. My husband and I are so grateful Jose was our caterer and have 100% confidence that he is THE caterer to trust for every event!

Super easy to work with, everything was perfect. The signature salmon dish is one of the best I've ever had. Totally not typical catering food.

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!

Tonya and her team were incredible! We had a 50 person private party, she worked with me on the perfect menu and provided food and bartending services. They used my outdoor kitchen to fire the food right before serving so it was hot and awesome. Everyone mentioned how great the food was, and most went back for more. The best part of having a caterer is to not have to worry about anything. We never once had to think or worry about anything being ready or right. Thanks!!!

WE WOULD GIVE 10 STARS IF WE COULD!!!   Chef Mumsie and her team were impeccable from start to finish.  We bid for catering and event planning assistance for our three corporate events and loved the personalization and variety presented by Chef Mumsie.  Once we were put in contact with Bridgette the event committee had all of their questions answered professionally and in a timely manner.   She offered to give us a tasting which put our minds at ease since we were looking for multiple events with completely different expectations.  We contracted with the Chef Mumsie team for our Officer’s Retreat, Product Launch Press Party and the Employee/Family Picnic.  They proved that they can execute any type of event flawlessly…  the plated, upscale 5-course dinner for our 10 corporate officers and their spouses, the cocktail party with tray passed hors d’oeuvres for 200 during the new product launch and the fun, casual employee/family picnic for 500.  When completing three different events in three days at three different locations we somewhat expected some minor hiccups but to our astonishment not only did we get everything we wanted they even surprised us with things we never anticipated, such as the personalized ice sculpture for the officer’s dinner or the live chef action Flight! at the launch party and the cotton candy, popcorn and fondue stations for the picnic.  Those personal touches surprised us yes but they were also the things that took our events from nice to EXTRAORDINARY.  The planning committee has received ongoing praise for the success of our weekend’s festivities but we know we owe it all to Chef Mumsie and her incredible team.  Without a doubt, this is now officially our catering company for all our corporate events.   A million Thanks, Oliver!  J Davis and Compan

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.

I planned a personal cooking lesson for my boyfriend's birthday, and couldn't have asked for a better experience! Chef Keith took time to get to know exactly what we were looking for, and he was flexible in creating our personalized 3 course menu. He showed up to my house on time, and was prepared with all of the food and cooking tools. He even cleaned up afterwards and left my kitchen spotless. The food was amazing! Chef Keith is very knowledgable about cooking. I would highly recommend hiring Chef Keith! It was absolutely worth it!!

Edmond was able to cater our party for 25 people on very short notice. He went out of his way to understand our needs by making suggestions and took great pride in preparing a delicious meal. Several of our guests raved about the food and inquired who our caterer was. Edmond was punctual with his set up and preparation and there was plenty of food for everyone. We would recommend Gabriel's for your next party. Thanks again Edmond!

Tray Gourmet Catering provided a wonderful Afternoon Tea to our 140 guests in Carlsbad . They generously donated their services to our Non-Profit fundraiser impressing our Board Members, but most important our guests. The majority of our guests don't usually have an opportunity to come to such a event. Our Afternoon Tea included 5 traditional Tea sandwiches as well as special sandwiches for our young guests, We also had an assortment of 4 delicious desserts . The plate presentation was beautiful too. The entire staff was very friendly, had prompt delivery and set up and they executeded all of our requests. I also had the opportunity to see them serve a wedding in Vista. Again it was a beautiful presentation and the kitchen smelled amazing, wish I could have stayed to eat there too. Just love the staff at Tray Gourmet Catering. Jeanette Ansell Sequoia Dream Foundation

After receiving a great referral for a caterer, we hired RE Catering for a company event of 20 people. I have yet experienced a caterer who exemplifies the understanding and professionalism required to successfully prepare, serve and clean up an event as well as they did. We're a small S Corp. and appreciated this wonderful experience. The menu had many choices, food was outstanding and the service extraordinary. We became a regular customer and continued to use RE Catering for company lunches and various events. I would highly recommend RE Catering. You won't be disappointed!! Tiburon Design Torrance, CA

Though I was only looking for a drop-off service, Joseph ended up coming with a staff of 2 and making most of the food fresh in my kitchen. There was plenty of food and their service was fantastic. All my guests had a lovely time.

It was a pleasure working with Diane and her food was quite tasty. She made my husband's birthday celebration joyful and may life so much easier at a very busy time. This was our first experience with a personal chef and we will certainly consider doing it again in the future for another special occasion.
