I cannot rave enough about our experience with Pete. He catered our wedding about two weeks ago and we were blown away. He managed to help organize the entire day, along with our coordinator, including the bar setup and of course the food. And let me say, the food was outstanding. We did a tasting with him before we hired Pete and he made a comment that really resonated, he said that anyone can make a good wedding tasting because you only cook for two people, but you have to talk with those who have worked with the chef to have a better idea of how they would cater to 120 people. We had very high expectations for the food and he exceeded them all, most of our guests made an effort to say how tasty everything was. We particularly loved his risotto and his polenta. Overall we can't thank Pete enough, the night was perfect and much of that is owed to him.
Sat catered my wedding of over 600 hundred people. It was a delight to work with such a professional because it allowed my wife and I to focus on our special day.
I had hired Taqueria Cazadores to cater a reception to follow a memorial service for my father. Evan worked with me far ahead of time, worked with the funeral director, and made this catering event effortless for me. After speaking with him in the beginning of my search for a caterer, I felt sure that I was in good hands. The icing on the cake was that the food was absolutely off-the-charts delicious! The food, the presentation, and the service were all phenomenal, and even surpassed my expectations. Thank you Evan and Crew!
Debbie catered our wedding. We had about 40 people there. She was on time and very professional! The food was outstanding. She even made gluten free to accommodate a few of our guests! I highly recommend Made With Love!!!
A Plus Catering catered for my wedding in March 2016. They arrived on time and went the extra mile to make sure that everything went well and were fantastic! Their staff and Jeanine were great to work with.
Working within our budget, Stephanie created an appetizer menu that delighted our wedding guests. Stephanie stepped in with only a few days before our event and delivered all the items early. Before leaving Stephanie checked in with us to see if she had met our needs. We would hire her again in a heartbeat.
As a event coordinator I have worked with Steve and the folks at DNL Catering on many special occasions. We have worked together on wedding and baby showers, brunches, wedding receptions, work Christmas parties and anniversary parties. They always provide a menu to your request and the playing of the food is always on beautiful plates and dishes, not aluminum trays. There are always compliments on the foods from the guests. We are always a happy with the selections. Their website makes it easy to browse their menu and I always receive a reply promptly when I submit an event request online. DNL Catering is on my preferred vendor list when I meet with future clients. I have used them in my own home numerous times. They are my 'go to' caterers for any event.
Deborah catered the Sunday Brunch at our Wedding back in October. She served both the Bacon and Vegetable quiches as well as made some amazing caramel apple bread pudding. She finished it off with yogurt parfaits and roasted veggies. It was truly a spectacular feast and everyone was impressed!! The timing was perfect and the experience was great! Thanks Quiche and Carry -Teresa and Amanda
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.
Alisa was hired to cater our wedding of 35 guests at a private residence. She went above and beyond call of duty with cocktails, appetizers, the dinner, and setting up, breaking down the event. She arrived early to set up for both the ceremony and the dinner, and provided the cocktails and beer which received reave reviews from the guests. For the appetizers, she provided polenta bites and bruschetta in keeping with our Italian menu and both were really tasty. The dinner menu consisted of a caesar salad with grilled salmon, tomato bisque, and a cappellacci di zucca; all were truly delicious. She cleaned up the same night, making it easy for us to enjoy the kitchen the next morning for breakfast. If I were to host another event, I would hire Alisa in a heartbeat.
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.
Graham cooked for me at 10 year wedding anniversary which was outdoors at a private location in Stinson Beach on October 24, 2015. I met with Graham maybe a month before my event. I was very specific about everything I wanted for my special day. We had a few kids and a total of about 50 people so I wanted to make sure that he was a good fit for me and my guest of families. I did not want a fancy foie gras chef although I think Graham is in that league. I wanted someone who would cook a good meal and I wanted to be satisfied at the end of the day. Graham met with me and my mom and made us a sample from my Mediterranean menu. After spending a little time with Graham, I knew I wanted to hire him. He was charming and professional and his food was delicious. At my party he helped make my event go smoothly. He made 3 different salads, grilled chicken, salmon and beef kabobs for my lunch party. It was a beautiful day and my guest were so happy with the meal and also found Graham to be very charming! He is gem! Thank you so much Graham! I hope we can have you cook for us again in the future.
Daniella Bensimons' food is like music that you can eat. Her food is delectable, delicious and is farm-to-table fresh. I've yet to meet someone eating her food at a party that doesn't like it. 5 star cuisine from one of the best Chefs in the East Bay
Matt and his wife Nina did a wonderful job catering my small backyard wedding for 20 people. Their food was absolutely delicious and everyone loved it! Very professional with day of services and were both very kind and welcoming people. Generally pretty responsive with emails/messages. Very receptive to everything that I wanted for the event and delivered on all my requests. We rented dinnerware and glassware from them and it made everything a breeze! Such a pleasure to work with. Overall was a good experience. I would love to eat their food again!!
Angela catered my wedding of about 80 people. Her food was amazing. We got the portobello wellington, malfati, and roasted vegetables. The wellington was wonderful, the malfati good, and the vegetables were okay. The garden salad was amazing, and the best part of the meal. Unfortunately, there were issues with the kitchen and her staff was unable to provide food timely. Three tables waited approximately and hour and fifteen after everyone else had received their food. I was disappointed that I hired 4 servers and they had to pull my bartender to serve food. Which left our event in a situation where the event manager had to oversee the bar. Overall the food is really wonderful, but there were some structural issues.
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.
Liberation Foods BBQ was the highlight of our wedding reception! From the start of our wedding planning, Liberation Foods responded promptly to all of our questions and was flexible with our menu and budget. We were immediately impressed by the quality of the food and booked instantly for our backyard summer wedding of 150 people. Liberation Foods checked in with us frequently before our event which helped put us at ease during the planning process. On the day of our wedding, Liberation Foods was prompt and efficient with their set up. They were kind to us and our guests, adding to the overall atmosphere. Their food was a big hit and our friends are still talking about it months after! Without hesitation, I’d recommend Liberation Foods to friends and family for weddings/special events.
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 :)
Up & Under did an amazing job catering our last event. The food was out of this world. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about it. Thank you so much. We will definitely use you again.
I love working with Olive Catering! I have had the pleasure of working with Arkadi and Ellinor for two events and have booked them for an upcoming three because they are that incredible! They are a power team - always on time, efficient, and the food is always healthy and delicious with options for every diet. I am so grateful they are in the Bay Area to help with my events and I could not recommend them more, Olive catering is awesome!
