We hired Gourmet Lovers Catering for our wedding that was on July 23, 2016, honestly nothing but AMAZING!!!. From the very first contact till the very day of the event, everything went smoothly, everyone was on top of everything and Carolina and Boris were always attentive and making sure that we were worried free for our special day. When we first contacted Gourmet Lovers Catering, Carolina was very quick to respond and be at our services in any way possible. Both Carolina and Boris are so very down to earth, sweet and beyond helpful. With Carolina's great customer service, we knew that we definitely had to set up a food tasting in which I still remember her exact words were "come hungry" and let me tell everyone who is reading this that she is not kidding!! :). The food trial was very, very impressive. Personally I am a person who admires presentations and if I do not see quality presentations it is a turnoff but Gourmet Lovers blew us away!!! One of the best presentations and food tastings that we had experienced when trying to find catering for our wedding. Both Carolina and Boris were very welcoming, so welcoming that we pretty much felt like family. The presentation was beautiful for being just a tasting they went above and beyond. The quality, freshness and taste of the food was beyond words, all the food that was tasted literally melted in your mouth. Everything that was tasted was delicious. We ended up choosing the Marsala Chicken. After the tasting, Carolina was constantly available all the time in case anything changed or any questions needed to be answered. Just everything was great, it was perfect. The day of our wedding, all of our guests loved the food that guests were going back for seconds. Their staff was amazing. During the whole night, we had a personal server attending to our every need (I apologize but we do not remember his name but he was super sweet and beyond helpful, Carolina and Boris if you can remember the gentleman please tell him a big thank you from us). Once again, everything was awesome. Carolina and Boris are very passionate about what they do and it shows within their service and work. From the bottom of our hearts, we want to say thank you, thank you, a million times thank you for catering our wedding. Carolina and Boris, you guys are amazing and we simply adore you. Thank you for making our wedding worry free and delicious!!!

We used Mr. Worldwide Catering for our wedding on June 6, 2015. Jose and his team did an outstanding job that went above and beyond my expectations. Our wedding was about 75 people and the salads were crunchy, kabobs (beef and chicken) were hot and moist, and my guests could not, I reiterate could not, stop talking about how amazing the food was. While many individuals think of wedding food as "blah", Jose made amazing food that impressed at an incredibly reasonable price point. For our wedding, we had fruit and veggie platters for the cocktail hour and for the main course we had: beef and chicken kabobs, hummus, roasted veggies, and a greek salad. He really worked with us on a menu that we wanted and delivered flawlessly.He plated and served both the appetizers and a meal for my husband and I so we could, shockingly, eat at our own wedding! My husband actually felt that what we ate on the wedding day was even better than our tasting!Not only did Jose offer incredible food at a reasonable price point, he was often in contact with my coordinator to ensure that everything flowed smoothly. I highly recommend Jose and his team. He was prompt, delivered everything he said and more, reasonable, personable, and everything I desired in a caterer.

Everything about Best Mobile Chef was absolutely incredible! Shawna and her staff catered our daughter's wedding and the food was so delicious and a great value. They were extremely professional and cleaned up everything including taking away the trash! We have passed her name on to friends and relatives and will gladly use her again. Best Mobile Chef went way beyond our expectations! 5 stars+ Paula Beam-Toedt San Marcos Wedding of Jamie Beam & Mike Krikorian

I highly recommend Chef Mumsie for a wedding that needs catering or for any event that involves great food and wonderful service. It is hard to describe the quality of good food other than to say that it was delicious and all the guests were raving about it. Appetizers included incredible onion pastry puffs that were the talk of more than one conversation I had that night. Salad was also a big hit, not something one usually expects to say about salad. The entree was talked, posted, and blogged about. Beautiful flatware and table settings were used, and the service was light-footed, courteous, and professional. We felt we were in a 5-star hotel, not our own backyard (which is where we actually were). Aside from all this, I want to mention how impressed we were with the hard work that was so evident. Chef Mumsie's staff was present from 2pm on toward 11pm and never stopped moving for a second. We were promised that we would not have to worry about a single event during the day and that was exactly what happened. Without even realizing that we had left so much in the hands of our caterers, we passed the night catching up with old friends, connecting people, taking photos, and meeting each other's friends from far off -- never once did we have to stop to check up on any details of any kind. Chef Mumsie seemed to be in eight places at once at any moment, and everything took care of itself as if by magic. There were no hidden charges, unexpected twists, or demands for attention. We are very impressed and grateful for their efforts in feeding and satisfying 80+ people in a somewhat confined space -- done with grace, speed, and invisibility. .. and deliciousness!

We asked our friends and family members who had recently been married what they thought the most important part of the wedding was, and they unanimously said "THE FOOD". From the moment we requested a quote Bill's attention to detail made it a wonderful and memorable experience. We were provided with and absolutely delicious lunch at our tasting; where Bill customized our menu to fit our unique wedding theme. The staff was friendly, informative, professional and genuinely warm and kind. Bill's help however moved beyond his fabulous food. For any and EVERY coordination mishap, he was there with creative and inventive solutions. His staff went above and beyond, even assisting in set up and decoration. We were truly overwhelmed by their generosity and their willingness to be of assistance. On our wedding day, as we ran from the car to the venue to avoid the terrible storm; we were greeted by Bill with a mini buffet for the bridal party so that we would have a chance to actually eat at our wedding. To say the food was amazing is an understatement. I cannot describe how delicious it was or how beautifully and artfully arranged. I truly cannot do it justice. When asked, our guest said that hands down, it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Our menu included custom flank steak sliders with asian slaw, a variety of sushi, mini ribs, chicken skewers, grilled vegetable stuffed crepes, procuitto wrapped asparagus, endive spoons filled with tabouleh, chicken sate, and so much more. The service was impeccable and after everything was done, the staff cleaned and left everything immaculate. Most importantly, Bill was sensitive and understanding of our situation. You see , we were two brides. Bill and his staff were shining examples of what it is to treat everyone with equality and dignity and respect. We were afraid of vendors not wanting to work with us and Bill took all that anxiety away. Through his vast network he found amazing and supportive vendors who were ready to celebrate with us and were empowered by our decision to get married. We cannot thank Bill enough for the many kindnesses he bestowed on us and we cannot wait to eat at his amazing restaurant again. - C & A

This was the first time I ever had a holiday dinner catered, and I couldn't be happier to have come across Rich at RE Catering. He was a most pleasant person to deal with, and true to his word. He delivered exactly what he promised... delicious home made food, piping hot on Thanksgiving afternoon, with plenty of leftovers. He delivered everything from rolls and butter to pumpkin pie and apple pie. The only thing I supplemented was sweet potato casserole. Although catering our holiday meal was supposed to be an exceptional event to accommodate my hectic work schedule, we are now considering having it caterer by Rich every year. 😋

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.

Our plans to have our wedding meal prepared by our favorite restaurant fell thru 3 weeks before our wedding. I knew Christine Mcmaster as an excellent cook and had been to 2 private dinners catered by her. Quite anxious, I called her and she put me at ease with her assurances and suggestions to take my time and figure out what we would really like. Great advice! We chose Mediterranean food. Together with Chris we quickly settled on a menu. There were so many details but she handled it all from overseeing the table setting, shopping, deliveries and arranging table display. It was amazing I actually could relax. The meal was sumptuous elegantly prepared and plated all by Chris and her kitchen staff. Our dinner menu was: A simple greek salad, hummus, tzatziki, baba ganoush, roasted vegetables, flat bread Then Shawarma lamb, roasted chickens, and feta rice w/ pistachios. There were 35 people at the wedding meal and all the courses were on time and beautifully plated. The kitchen was quiet and when I went in everyone was smiling and extremely busy. Chris ran the kitchen in a quiet organized way that was contagious to all who worked there. Truly an amazing woman. Her sense of elegance shined thru both in the delicious food and its presentation. My husband and I will have lasting memories of Christine and how she stepped in and played an integral part in helping create our dream wedding. I highly recommend you have her cater any function. All you have to do is relax and enjoy it.

Fitch's Kitchen catered my wedding at the Wedding Tree in Point Fermin Park in San Pedro, CA. The food was delicious, it was delivered on time, and Fitch was very understanding about a hiccup with my payment method and delivered food anyway, making sure my day wasn't ruined by an oversight (that was my own doing). I had several guests comment on the food and ask where it was from. THANK YOU!!!

Meraki is a Greek word used to describe putting a lot of love, creativity and soul into something which is why Jory Pomeranz chose the name. It is easy to smell, taste and see that a lot of love goes into each Meraki Meal. Jory has a natural ability to combine flavors. He can time every course so they are not only cooked at the perfect temperature, but served at the correct temperature and add flare to something basic like a chicken thigh. Even the grill marks on a piece of chicken are perfectly spread out and just enough to give the chicken a grill flavor without ruining the juicy tenderness we all strive for when making chicken. Jory can make things that you hated as a kid taste delectable. Jory adds spices and sauces up until the minute prior to serving to make sure each plate is perfect. I once saw Jory save what was about to be terrible chicken tacos by creating a homemade taco sauce from a nearly empty refrigerator. With Meraki Meals the food suits the season. Who wants to eat watermelon in October when pomegranate and apples are so delicious. Every Meraki Meal tastes like the season and uses fresh fruits and vegetables. Meraki Meals put a healthy spin on what looks and tastes like a calorie nightmare, but each meal is filled with proteins and vitamins. Not only is the flavor impeccable, the presentation is a work of art. Even when catering for 35-40 people, Meraki Meals are served in beautiful silver dishes. Meraki Meals are great for crowds of any size. I have to make a conscious effort not to scrape my plate clean every time I have had Meraki Meals. I highly recommend Meraki Meals for a party of any size, but especially 8-12 people because this might give the chef a chance to sit and talk with you which is a treat of its own!
