Carolina was a pleasure to work with and made my life so easy. Chef Boris, Maria and bartender Peter were pleasant and very professional. The presentation, the food and the service were amazing.

Jose went above and beyond our expectations! I couldn't have been happier with the food and the service. He had really great prices, and the food was phenomenal. We have multiple people come up to us and say that they weren't expecting such great food at a wedding. We had the BBQ chicken and tri tip. Both were amazing, but the tri tip was definitely the stand out. I wasn't there when Jose and his team came to set up, but they took initiative to get everything ready. Jose even helped set up the desert table and helped cut the cake, even though we didn't order any desserts from him. He made sure to serve us (bride and groom) first. With no wedding coordinator, I had to worry about a lot of things during the wedding, but I never had to worry about the food; and that is priceless. I couldn't recommend his services more!

Absolutely amazing! Fabulous food and menu for a unique wedding venue and a frazzled bride. Could not have asked for better food, service or professionalism.

A big 'Thank You' to Susan and Wild Thyme. I hosted a group of 12 friends for a 'wine sharing' party at my house, and since I don't know what wines my guests will bring, it was important to have a wide variety of tasty bites to nosh on. The Wild Thyme team totally knocked it out of the park with a continuous flow of awesome bites for us, including: charcuterie plate, brisket sliders, roasted brussel sprouts w/ a bacon jam, grilled cheese sandwich wedges (yum!!) and more. One of my favorites was a single shrimp with a citrusy sauce and avocado wedge served in fancy spoon...great presentation and flavor! (paired really well with sauv blanc!) Overall I couldn't be happier with the food, service and fun that Susan and her team provided for us. I highly recommend that you give Wild Thyme a try!

Rich and his staff did a fabulous job hosting my birthday party . . first thunderstorm in 126 years! . .No kidding so we quickly went to Plan B and Rich adapted like a professional. My Party would not have been the same without him and his cordial staff. He was gracious; kind; and funny with our guests. .Food was excellent . .Will hire him again and recommend his services.

We were very happy with the food and service room Aioli. Catering our family event made everything run smoothly, and gave me the opportunity to mingle and visit with our guests. The food was delicious, and delivered and set up on time. I would highly recommend Aioli.

I used 'drop off' service, everything was perfect! Fantastic catering by Keith for a summer party I organized for my 89 year old mother. He and staff were right on time, plated everything on beautiful serving dishes, and set up everything. Food was terrific, got lots of compliments. Recommend highly.

We loved the level of service and the food was amazing! Our guests loved every course. The chef used fresh ingredients and each dish was deliciously prepared and well presented. The entire staff created a wonderful experience for us and our guests. They were professional, courteous, friendly, very accommodating, and completely self-sufficient. We didn't have to lift a finger. Even the planning stage was made easy. Bill was extremely responsive, very professional, and reliable. They were reasonabley priced, as well. I would highly recommend them.

We used BAPS! catering for our annual Halloween party for about 100 people. The food was AMAZING and a crowd pleaser. The prices were reasonable and Brad was professional and responsive; super helpful. They did drop-off service and set it up with everything we needed and extra supplies and food to replenish as things ran out. Would use them again and highly recommend them.

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.

I hired Diane to cook a multi-course meal in the comfort of our home in order to surprise my husband for Valentines Day. We agreed upon a menu, a time, a price and we were good to go. On the day of we corresponded a bit and she offered some of her personal items to help decorate for the special night which was above and beyond. I didn't need them but I did appreciate the offer. Diane is friendly, responsive and the food she made was DIVINE! Part of our meal included cream corn and French onion soup, both my husbands favorites. He loved both items. We were so full, we couldn't even eat the dessert we had planned for the evening. My husband said one more bite and he would have exploded. Diane was efficient in the kitchen, we were able to see the flambé for the steak from the dining room where we were enjoying our salad. She served the meal and cleaned up as each course went along. It was a new experience for both of us and it ended up being a very special evening.

He was on time, curtious and the food was delicious. I did run into a situation where the orginal order was not met, but he actually did make it up and promise to give me a discount on my next function. Which I am sure I will be calling him for my next function. So if you need a taco man and are on a budget. Luis and his family are great for it. :-) Thanks Luis!!! Until next time.

Jory came to our home to prepare a dinner for 10 guests. Our house staff was delighted by his ability to keep the kitchen clean while preparing for service. Since I run a food service company myself, this alone is laudable and the sign of a true chef. He prepared hor d'oeuvres, appetizers, three entreés, and served the crepe cake we brought in from Lady M Bakery. Afterwards, he offered coffee service while service wound down. The quality of the food was superb on all counts, and many of our guests asked for seconds and still left their plates empty. Mediterranean dishes of fennel branzino, victorian lamb, and gardenherbed lemon chicken were the highlights of the night. During service, our guests were shocked to see the double doors be drawn open and to find a spotless kitchen in between each course. Our guests are very well-to-do in the fashion industry. Jory is young and very well rounded personally—service was socially and culinarily seamless. He was even welcoming when our guests pillaged the leftovers in the kitchen throughout the night. My wife and I will book him to cook parties in the future and you should too.

We hired Island Soul for our mothers celebration of life party a week before the event. Luckily they were able to accommodate us on such short notice! Everyone at our event LOVED their food, and their speciality (pork belly) was to die for. They were so sweet and professional. We will be hiring them any time we need catering. Thank you so much you guys!!

Chef Steve did an amazing job preparing a luncheon at my home in Laguna Beach for 50 people. . The portions were large and scrumptious with lots of leftovers. I would definitely recommend him and will use his service again. Thanks Steve for a job well done.
