We hired Pete to cater my 35th birthday party for 22 people which was a murder mystery party that we hosted at our home. From the first time we spoke, he was very responsive, answering my phone calls, emails and texts. He offered a lot of advice and any questions I had. He also had items that he brought that helped me cut down on my rental prices (plates, cloth napkins and silverware). All of my guests commented on how delicious all of his food was including apps, salad, main dishes and desserts. It was all delicious and presented very well. He and his two servers were great with helping to set up and break down and they were very very polite and considerate. My only real comparison is when my husband and I got married 8 years ago and used the facilities on-site catering company. Although it was a completely different type of event, I was somewhat expecting to have a deposit, signed contract and more of a set "this is the menu" like we did for the wedding but in this case, we didn't. Typically I am wanting to be very hands on (some may say controlling :) ) and have every detail planned out but I let Pete run with the menu (aside from my dietary restrictions and a couple of preferences) and he was great, I have no regrets and would hire him again no questions asked! The whole evening was a success and I would highly recommend working with Pete. I am thinking of what event I could host next just so I could have Pete come cater again. I will be recommending him to anyone I know who is searching for a caterer.
I highly recommend this company for any catering services you need! My company hired Taqueria Cazadores for our Christmas party, the food was a hit! We are a dominantly Hispanic work place and everyone raved about the food especially the carnitas (best I've had). I will definitely recommend them to any one looking for great food for a great price! thank you again Evan your friends at PPandL
I had a dinner party for 9 co-workers and Sat did a very nice job of setting up a great multi-meal course. Sat took care of all the details including setup, delivery, and coursing out the meal. All of the guests raved about the food and it was truly a great experience!
Stephanie catered brunch for 13 of us and everything was fantastic. She was right on time, everything was wrapped up and ready to serve, and all of the dishes were delicious! A couple of friends even asked about how I found her in case they had a future event,I would definitely use her catering service again.
Had to take this time to Thank Jennine and A Plus Catering. For coming to my needs so quickly, and so efficiently. We were down to one day until our event and she showed great professionalism and expertise. That truly helped my event become a great success. We had various appetizers and entrees. The event favorites were the meatballs, grilled chicken alfredo and for desert we had the lemon tarts .I will be glad to recommend A Plus Catering to all my business and social acquaintances. We have had various functions throughout the years and have never saw the proficiency that this company showed. They also provided all dinnerware and set up. So once again Thanks A Plus Catering .
This was my first experience ordering catering service so I wasn't sure what to expect. Debbie did a great job for our group. The food was delicious and plentiful. Debbie worked with some special criteria to make the deliveries to us but was on time and well prepared. Thank you Debbie for the great food and all your hard work!
We have found Alisa through Thumbtack based upon the reviews and were extremely pleased with her Catering Service for our Wedding. Alisa and her team arrived early, set up the tables and had the venue smelling wonderful with all of the food she cooked. Not only did her and the team assist with the dinner service, but they also cleaned and packed away all of the rental settings. This was extremely beneficial and gave both us and our friends additional time to enjoy the day. If anyone ever needs Catering Services in the East Bay, she is the best and has the most reasonable prices! Greg-n-Greg
Deb makes the most amazing quiche and is such a pleasure to work with. I worked with her when she prepared quiches for our Christmas party at our home. She takes such pride in her quiches and her full service catering and has developed this into an outstanding business. I would recommend her to cater your next event and assure anyone that she delivers the best quiches and excellent services along with her great smiles and laughs.
Celebrations by Chet Chase is a first class catering company. The food is delicious and elegantly prepared. Chet is wonderful and charming. I wholeheartedly recommend Celebrations by Chet!
I am an event planner and have worked with many catering companies in the past few years. Kitchenina is by far my best find and the catering company that I will continue to recommend to any of my future clients. Aliki is extremely kind and very accommodating. The food is top quality and their customer service is unmatched. So glad to have found this company on thumbtack! Looking forward to working with them on many future events!
My husband forgot to tell me he had agreed to host a cocktail party for 40 guest only 8 days away. When I talked to Graham he said he was available and within a day he had a menu and some suggestions about the bar.Graham arrived at our apartment in S.F. 2 hours before the event and just made everything so easy and and gracious that the party seemed like it had been planned way in advance. Graham served small bites of very tasty canapes and wonderful french style sliders that satisfied everyone. The whole evening was a success from set up to clean up and I was able to enjoy being the hostess and not worry about anything. Graham makes eating good food a total joy and I look forward to catering future parties with him as the Chef. Carole
I've known Grace for many years. I have been over to her house for home cooked meals that were truly gourmet, and delicious. She also prepared some food and sold it from her home. On the level of catering for large parties, I went to our friend Dave's party last month were Grace did the catering. The food was flawless, delicious, with great presentation, and great variety. I strongly recommend Grace for catering your events.
Rose Johnson Catering was my party partner for our son’s engagement celebration last weekend in Orinda. The party was a huge success, and Rose and her team deserve much credit for the success. Rose responded to my Thumbtack inquiry with a prompt, thorough, and reasonable bid. However, after viewing her beautiful website, I replied to Rose that while I personally thought her menus were perfection, my son had specified that he did not want the food for his party to be “too fancy.” I told Rose the party would be a casual afternoon affair on our deck and I feared her culinary talents would be wasted on my son and my husband. Rose persevered, pointing out in her reply that she could do a barbecue with a southwestern flavor. The food need not be "fancy," she observed, but it should be tasty. And she sent me a custom menu that my son, his fiancée, my sisters, my husband and I all proclaimed perfect, including seared medium rare tri-tip of beef with chimichurri sauce, grilled cilantro chicken with tortillas, chipotle laced potato salad, and Mexican rice, bean, and corn salad. But Rose did not stop with sending me the menu; she said she would use my kitchen and grill on my deck, ensuring the food would be fresh as well as tasty. And after I hired her, she came to my home to check out my kitchen, my deck, and my grill and advised me on renting and setting up dining rounds and serving tables, as well as how to ensure good traffic flow for 50 guests. Rose is a real party expert, and I am not, so her advice was very much appreciated. The day of the party, Rose, Floricel and Esteban arrived a full two hours early and took charge. I hired Rose Johnson Catering for the food, which they delivered beautifully. As it turned out, they helped with the entire party, going above and beyond in many instances and showing poise and flexibility in the face of surprises, like my son’s decision to give a speech and set off a round of champagne toasts before dessert. Rose poured the champagne herself. Several guests asked me during the party: Who catered this? Who is your caterer? I happily provided several referrals to Rose Johnson Catering. Guest comments about the food were very positive: Mike: “The tri-tip was great.” Helen: “The grilled chicken was fabulous.” Kay: “I loved the potato salad. And the guacamole was wonderful.” Liz: “So nice to have so many dishes gluten-free.” Cindy: “The brownies were amazing. I told them so.” Bill: “Those parfaits were a big hit.” Matt: “Great food! Great service!” There was plenty of food for 50 guests, even with 1/3 of them being hungry 20-something friends of my son’s from high school and college. We even had leftovers, which Rose packed up and left in my refrigerator, along with leaving my kitchen cleaner than she found it. My husband, son, future daughter-in-law and I made a brunch of the leftovers the next day, sharing the delicious food and happy memories of a wonderful party. Best of all, this was the first party I’ve ever hosted where I had a great time myself. I don’t think I’ll have another big party again without booking Rose Johnson Catering!
I was planning a Celebration of Life service for. Very dear friend. The event location was in Walnut Creek, CA and I was in Florida. Dawn, from Aurora Catering, was so helpful in the planning of the catering for about 100 people. She took so much of the stress off of me with her advice. The food selection was delicious and well displayed. Aurora's staff was unbelievably organized, efficient and wonderful. Lindsay, who was my contact that, made everything run so smoothly I didn't have to worry about anything except circulating among my guests. I would highly recommend Aurora Catering.
I've used Green Chow Down catering services on several occasions - from startup events to personal parties. The food and service is amazing - home meal quality, unique recipes, and Angela always goes an extra mile to make it a memorable experience. Highly recommend.
Wanting to learn to cook lower calorie food that still had great flavor, I hired Zac to come to my home and teach in our kitchen. My husband is our (excellent) cook, I am not a cook (at fifty-something years old), presenting a bit of a challenge. Rising to the occasion, Zac planned a meal that read like the menu at French Laundry! Panic!There was no way I could prepare this meal. Zac said...Way! He met me at Sonoma Market to introduce me to fresh everything, not packaged anything! Back at our kitchen, the magic began and WOW! Probably one of the most delicious dinners I've ever had at home, and certainly rivaling 5 star restaurants. Our cooking and dining experience was nothing short of superb and better yet, not a dollop of butter or a drop of cream was used to create the fantastic soup, salad, and complex main course. Through Zac's exceptional knowledge of herbs and spices, he taught me to create extraordinary flavors to enhance the food, and not over power it. It was a brilliant evening of cooking! Zac is easy going, yet very assured, and his ability to communicate is second to none. Remarkable job by a talented young man who will be continuing to educate us in the kitchen and most assuredly catering events for us. Bravo, Zac...Bravo!
I didn’t take pictures to show you guys but Cheri did an excellent job on my fiancé’s and my dinner for two. Not only did the food taste great but the set up was very nice. We had no hesitation hiring her for our upcoming June 2019 wedding! She will give you quality food for an affordable price. Not to mention she also has other vendors if your looking to have her company cater your wedding. She puts time and detail into her creations. I definitely recommend her.
Eileen was a pleasure to work with? The food was delicious, and everyone was extremely pleased. She was prompt, friendly and professional. We will definitely use her services again. Thanks Eileen!!
Ordered from Basic Catering for a company luncheon, food was excellent , on time and they worked within my budget,will order from them again.
Everything was amazing. From early communication to decide to menu, to super punctuality on delivery. And the food.. obviously! It was G.R.E.A.T!
Daniel was an amazing caterer. He was extremely prompt and came with most of the catering gear he needed (which is good because I have very few kitchen tools). Our entire group loved the food: cheese/meat course, tuna tartar, couscous, salmon, and tiramisu. It was delicious! And as a bonus, we did not need to clean up :)
