Sat did a wonderful catering job for our luncheon of fifty people this past weekend. I was a little hesitant at first because I didn't know his work and he didn't have his website up and running. I'm glad I took a chance as he came through with shining colors.

We used A-Plus Catering to hire a bartender for a smallish family party of 24 people. The bartender, Mike, was on time, personable, organized, and did a great job. I would definitely use them again.

We had a Company Picnic with a short turn around time on 8/11/16 and we called Made With Love Catering and spoke to Debbie Dittman. Debbie was so kind and worked with us because we did not know how many attendees intitally. She was very accommodating and made everything feel less stressful. Our picnic turned out to be about 160 people. Remember this was set up in about 9 business days. Debbie was amazing in the business end. Now for the food feed back. The food was AMAZING! Lots of food, she worked within our budget and we received lots of thumbs up from attendees. I would recommend Made With Love for business or personal catering. Cheers! Frances

I can't say enough about Andrea's catering service. Food was not only DELICIOUS it was unique. A feast of spicy flavors. Each dish was well prepared--cooked to perfection. Andrea was very easy to communicate with. Very patient even through my busy event preparation stage. She arrived on time on each of our meetings, returned every phone call or email. Most importantly, she easily set up all our food for our garden party in very timely fashion. I'll definitely use Andrea again and highly recommend her for all catering events!!

Chet was a dream to work with and will certainly become my go-to person for any event. I'm typically pretty anal and always cook everything for my own parties, but for our housewarming we decided to cater a portion of it. Chet was very willing to work with our budget and was prompt in his email and phone responses and put up with my 10,000 questions with ease. He was able to help us determine where to put food and beverages layout-wise in our home and really went above and beyond. The food was, of course, stellar and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm extremely picky when it comes to catering, but I would use Chet again in a heartbeat!

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

Best experience ever! I hosted my daughter's first birthday party and hired Kitchenina for the catering. The owners, Kostas and Aliki are professionals, very polite and will go out of their way to service you. They came on time for the party. The food was warm and delicious. I was raised in Greece and their Giant Mediterranean spicy beans are the best I have ever tasted:) The lamb roast, the tacos, the rice bowls and all the dishes we ordered are extremely tasty. I love they offer a variety of quality food from different cuisines and that it tastes home made. I would definitely recommend them and hire them again.

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.

Matt was very nice and professional at all times. He showed up at the event I booked him for way before the event time to set up and to personally make sure everything was as it should be. He is really the whole gamit when it comes to catering. He obviously takes pride in what he does and it shows. As an events coordinator, he is the type of person I want to work with. I will definitely use him again for my clients events. Sheri A Touch of Class Entertainment

Chef Anicette was absolutely fantastic! She created a unique and delicious menu for an in-home party using many of her original recipes which included pizettas, salad, crab fettuccine, chicken Parmesan and bananas foster. She was exceptionally responsive to all my requests and kept in close contact throughout the planning process. Her rates were much better than I had anticipated they would be and were worth every penny. Everyone at our party agreed that it was one of the best meals they had ever enjoyed. Chef Anicette has superb training and amazing talent. I will definitely be using her services in the future and have already suggested her to other friends and family members who are searching for catering services. 10/10 recommendation!

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 was planning a family party with about 25 guests. Since I wanted to enjoy the party while everyone was here, I decided to get it catered. I requested bids on Thumbtack and received a few. I looked the caterers up on Yelp as well. Cooking with Traci had 50 reviews on Yelp and 49 of them were 5 star. I hired her and was very impressed with her communication, flexibility in planning the menu and suggestions. The day of the party, she arrived promptly and had everything ready as she promised. I had ordered salmon cakes with pesto dressing, roasted corn salad, green salad with fresh veggies and watermelon-feta salad. We also had two large loaves of freshly baked bread. Everything was so tasty and our guests loved it. I would definitely recommend Traci for catering. She also holds cooking classes in Berkeley. I hope to try one soon! Think about Traci for your next party!

Oh my goodness, I was so, so impressed with Cheri's cooking. I've never, and I mean never, tasted a turkey that was as tender and flavorful as hers. I'm getting hungry right now just thinking of it. She catered our holiday party, and the depth and delight of all her amazing dishes tantalized all the guests. All her dishes we're cooked and baked to perfection. She's a genius in the kitechen, with a down-home, nurturing spirit to boot. I highly recommend Cheri for any catering event you're planning in the future. Your guest will rave that it's the best catered food they've ever had.

We recently hired Eileen and her staff with What's Cookin to cater a backyard luau party. From beginning to end, she was very easy to work with. The bottom line is that her food was AMAZING! What a talent!! Our party guests raved about the dishes she prepared. Since the party was themed, we worked together to come up with the perfect selections for a summer luau. Her staff that worked the party with her were super friendly and smiley, professional, and instinctively knew how to "be there" for our guests needs. As the hosts of the party, my husband and I were able to focus entirely on our guests, which is exactly what we were looking for. We were all very impressed with everything, and are certain we found our new favorite caterer! Thanks Eileen and your staff for a job well done!

Basic Catering supported our recent Oktoberfest racecar show event and they hit it out of the park! They were easy to work with and very thorough during the planning process. And the onsite team was on-time, very professional and the food was so fresh and delicious, prepared right on site. Can't wait to work with them again. We've give them 10 stars if we could!
