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!
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!
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!
We had a very special breakfast catered by Madkins catering. The food was amazing! All of our guests have been raving about how great it was. They are very professional and such a pleasure to work with. We will definitely hire them again in the future.
Outstanding caterer. The food was really delicious and the customer service was outstanding. Prices are very reasonable!
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!
Susan does a marvelous job of catering. The food is yummy, the kitchen runs smoothly and the experience is delightful for all.
San Francisco City Hall for a wedding reception has many rules and regulations as it is a government building and requires a lot of security and supervision. In addition to that, there isn't a kitchen on site so a tent is required as well as all rental equipment. Chef Mark and his group truly went above and beyond for our event. My husband does not like seafood at all but after our tasting, he was so impressed with the fish that he even considered having the fish as his entree for our wedding. Our guests were so impressed by our appetizers and dinner. We were assured restaurant quality and I wasn't surprised when all of our guests complimented us on how delicious the food was. It was catered specifically to us and Chef Mark and Roy spent time with us discussing what we would like for ourselves and our guests. Everything was tailored specifically to our celebration and that is truly a representation of us for the night. It was more than we could have asked for. We can't thank you enough for this. My initial concern was that Mark Kearney's Group is based from LA whereas our wedding in San Francisco but the communication was always frequent and Roy was very responsive and caring about our concerns. From start to finish they always assured us that they truly wanted to make sure our special night went without any concerns and they were on our side. Our event did not go without any bumps and when I found out from our wedding coordinator that a broken stove was delivered, I just couldn't believe that Chef Mark and his crew was able to deliver such wonderful meals to our guests under such a stressful situation. It's not the events that go flawlessly that are impressive but the ones that have a lot of obstacles that are impressive. I had absolutely no idea the kind of stress that must have been involved and our coordinator only told us afterwards so we had no idea on the day of. It is truly a mark of their professionalism. The thing is, I was already so impressed with all the other details that Chef Mark went out of his way to take care of for us. He made sure that a bottle of champagne was saved for us. When appetizers came around he specifically made sure my favorite came to me directly. When he flew up for our walk through, he took the time to take a picture of my husband and me because he was excited for us. We never requested any of these, but he just did them because he cares. His execution of the night was perfect as far as I am concerned and did not go unnoticed by ALL of our other vendors. EVERYONE was very impressed and I am so incredibly grateful and thankful for him and Roy and the rest of their team. You guys are amazing and we can't thank you enough!! We love you!
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
Carolina spent a lot of time working with us to ensure the menu was exactly what we wanted. Her staff was extremely helpful getting us prepared for the day even beyond catering responsibilities. The food was outstanding and received a number of compliments from our friends and family. We would not hesitate to hire her again for our next event.
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!!!
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.
Chef Pena's food was delicious! The presentation was just as good as the food. He cooked a variety of dishes to fit the desires of all food palates. We also enjoyed his company!
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!!
I was a guest at my friends dinner party that was catered by the Segar's, food was great and I would recommend their services.
All of the guests were extremely happy and full of complimentts of the food!
Acacia’s Table is great!!!!! Good company, good food and great service. Thank You Acacia!
Thank you very much for catering our UCR Chicano Latino Alumni Fundraiser. Everything was beyond what we expected. Thank you!
Carolina and her beautiful team were the perfect choice to cater fmy wedding reception. The food was truly delicious and generously portioned. My guests ( you don't and old) raved about the food. They crafted a menu that worked with my Fiesta themed wedding made up of the freshest ingredients cooked to perfection. Carolina was attentive to every detail- bringing us samples to try, checking in with me in the days before to see if I wanted any changes and that the prep for my home wedding was under control. She even sent her team member, Erika over the day before to help us with the decorating. There was not a single thing I didn't love about them and their food! Do it hesitate to hire Super Food for Super People for your next event! I loved them and you will too. Delicious food lovingly prepared by terrific people.
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!
