Chef William catered a dinner party for 11 women at a vacation rental home in the Coachella Valley. He was very easy to communicate with prior to the event, and he offered a great menu at a reasonable price. He arrived on time and set up discreetly in the kitchen while our guests drank sangria and ate appetizers (all provided by Chef William) outside by the pool. All of the food was delicious, and the portion sizes were generous. The paella was fun to watch him prepare in the giant pan and tasted delicious even the next day as leftovers. The tortoni dessert was also a hit. Chef William cleaned up impeccably after dinner, and we were all grateful to wake up the next morning to an immaculate kitchen and no dishes to wash. I would definitely recommend Chef William to cater a fun and delicious dinner for a large group.

I have used Jesse's business to cater gatherings at my house, from 40 to 70 people, on three separate occasions. Every time, I have been extremely happy with his service, his professionalism, and the quality of his food. The variety and amount of food he serves, along with toppings and even plates and plasticware, make it a really great value for the money. I just provide a fruit platter, drinks, and dessert and the party is covered. And when he's done, he even bags up the extras for you to keep. Being able to enjoy your own party and visit with your guests instead of working the whole time in the kitchen and then having to clean up is a great deal. My guests have raved about the service and the food each time and I can't compliment him enough. Tacos El Rey is a great way to go for large parties.

Awesome is the perfect word to describe events by Jessica! I had to back-to-back parties in early December that couldn't have been more perfectly executed. Jessica thought of absolutely everything to make each party a success. From the caterers...to the bartender...to the waitstaff that she hired, all were perfectly informed, professional and fantastic at their jobs. The food was amazing, the staff was prompt and polite. Both parties could not have been any better! The first person I will call before planning my next event will be Jessica! She's AWESOME!

From the minute I found Jeff Kaufman, I knew I had a planning partner for my wedding weekend, which we wanted to be a never-ending party. Jeff consulted with us on every detail from finding the venue and handling rentals and staffing, to creating menus for a rehearsal dinner, cocktail party, and reception (complete with happy hour, three-course meal and dessert bar), as well as a farewell brunch (in the rain!). Jeff was attentive, resourceful and realistic, saving us money where he could while feeding 175 people for three days. The food was fresh, the meat was grilled and served a la minute, and our guests raved about every bite. Jeff gave us no surprises when it came to costs and while we went over our planned budget, the outcome was well worth it. Jeff was much more than a caterer, he was a guide and a calming force throughout the experience. It was a magical winter wedding in the desert that we'll never forget.

Sheila catered our staff Christmas party and did an outstanding job. I own a fine dining restaurant and wanted the staff to be impressed with the meal, (apps were scrumptious and two entrees and sides were hot and delicious) and she did not let me down. At the end of the evening I r served her services for next year.

Royal Bash came to our company's 4,000 sq. ft. warehouse and transformed a good portion of it into an unbelievable Oscar night! True eloquence in decorations, plus the food was outstanding AND included party favors! Everyone dressed for the occasion. Thanks Royal Bash for a stunning evening!

Garlic Girls catered a masquerade party at our home near Silver Lake. We gave her about 2 weeks advance notice and Amy was able to fit us in to her schedule. She and one assistant arrived right on time to set up. Using their own display equipment it was masterfully arranged, and her menu recommendations blended well, creating a compelling visual. Considering the quality of the food, the price was very reasonable. Save yourself the hassle and delegate your successful gathering to a friendly and conscientious professional.

My husband and I were the lucky recipients to be invited to a dinner party that Chef Woody catered. The entire meal was delicious and the food presentation was beautiful. Chef Woody was kind enough to share his recipes and answer any question that the guests had. My husband and I would highly recommend Chef Woody.

I love Papa Joe's. The owners are super friendly. My family are regulars and they always recognize us when we come in. Their prices are great and their pizza is always good and fast. The interior of the restaurant could use some updating, but this is a local family-owned place that does what they can with what they have. Try their party-sized pizza for your next party. It feeds many hungry teenagers.

Robert Haney's catering came in to our party and set up all the food within minutes and we had a party of about 80 people for my Husband's 50th birthday. It looked Fantastic and Delicious and even the fruit tray was Beautiful and sweet and some of the fruit wasn't even in season. How did he even find such sweet fruit? Then when we announced at our party that the food has been served we had people filling up their plates as high as they could go because Everything he served looked So Appetizing and Delicous. Everyone Loved Everything he cooked.i can't tell you my favorite because I Loved it all! We had Tri Tip, Chicken Breast (HUGE CHICKEN BREASTS) pulled pork, potato salad, rolls and The Best Potato Salad Ever! We couldn't have asked for a better menu or Better Food. Everyone Loved Roberts Haneys catering and we will for sure ask him to cater our next party and every party we cater in the future. It was THE BEST FOOD I've EVER Had at Any Party. Many Friends have already ask me who our caterer was because they would also Love to have him cater their next party. I gave him 5 stars but id Love to give him at least ten! We had the Best BBQ in town! Thank You Thumbtack for having him as one of your caterers. I believe I got the Best you have. A Million Thank You's! Or at least 80!

Chef Mark is an amazing chef! He was very professional. I had a small dinner party with friends. I wasn’t sure what I wanted. Since I am on a low carb diet. After speaking with him he created a Menu to fit my diet restrict but also carter to my friends non restricted diet. Appetizer was fried calamari with sweet and sour sauce. The salad was a fresh Ahi Tuna salad. The entree was mouth watering pan seared Scallops with lemongrass carrot ginger purée. Lastly was dessert which I could only have a taste of my friends apple crisp with vanilla ice cream and homemade salted caramel. It was to hard to resist. Chef Mark made fresh berries with he’s own whipping cream!

Chris did heavy appetizers for a 70th birthday party I was hosting in my home. He had a difficult group to please since we had total vegetarians and super meat lovers at the party. Working with Chris Riles was an absolute pleasure. He was creative in setting up the menu, arrived on time, and left my kitchen sparkling clean when he left the house. Chris & his crew worked quickly & efficiently to create a glorious spread. His food was delicious and the presentations were beautiful. Everyone RAVED about his work. I will use Chris again in the future. Everything was top notch. He exceeded my expectations.
