Alisa Hill prepared and served a dinner for 84 people in the park at the Western Railway Museum, Suisun City, CA. She and her staff of three arrived on time, set the tables, laid out the food buffet style and were very helpful to our older guests. The food was praised by all. They did a great job of cleaning up. I would use Alisa Hill's Passionate Plates again.

We lucked out with Paul Michael Catering! Our organization decided to do an 'engagement style' dinner for 70 people at the last minute (less than 2 weeks to plan). It was a unique event that was introducing leadership teams of two organizations and we wanted to make a strong first impression. (Quality catering, servers, fine linens, etc.) To complicate matters, our event was on the same weekend as several very large graduations, so we were already behind in booking vendors. Fortunately we found Paul Michael Catering and they were GREAT to work with! My experience with them... very professional and accommodating, prompt to respond with a bid, adhered to our budget needs and delivered a great menu (prepared fresh onsite). I've done my share of event planning and it is always nerve racking when you have to pick a vendor you're unfamiliar with (especially with pressure to impress), but in reading all their reviews (and seeing how they were all recent) I felt confident in the decision to move forward. In the end we had a ton of compliments on the food... presentation, flavor, quantity. The servers attending to our buffet/tables were very personable and attentive, and behind the scene the crew did a great job helping tear down the event and clean up afterward. Not surprised a stack of their business cards were nearly gone afterwards. If you're looking to try someone new, scratch this to-do off your list and book now. You won't regret it. Thanks again Paul and team!

We had been in contact since the first week of July. He consistently updated our correspondence by phone and e-mail. So very reliable. The event was for a 100th birthday party. Boris had every detail done to perfection. The buffet tables were lovely and many guests informed me of the "great" food. I cannot give enough praise to Boris and his "crew". They were all just delightful and so very accommodating, timely, professional, and the food served in a very attractive manner. We certainly recommend his services.

We had our 7/2/16 wedding catered by C's BBQ and Chris & Dotty did a superb job, not to mention the food was delicious!!! Let me start by saying that Chris is a great communicator! He quickly responded to all my emails and his responses always put my mind at ease. With all the stress of wedding planning, the one aspect that I felt confident about was the food. And speaking of, we offered a buffet that included brisket, which can be tricky if not done right, but Chris did not fail to deliver. Not only was the brisket raved about, the chicken was moist and tasty, the chipotle baked beans were devoured, the potato salad was fantastic, the mac & cheese was creamy, and the cornbread was the perfect balance of sweet, savory & yummy! We ordered enough to feed 100, and had more than enough food. At the end of dinner, Chris & Dotty discretely broke down the buffet (professional stainless steel chaffing dishes), packaged up the leftovers and stored them in the refrigerator for us to take home and enjoy later. We can't thank them enough for helping to make our BIG day shine! We continue to receive compliments on the great food and the professionalism of Chris & Dotty and If you're considering BBQ for your wedding, you can't go wrong with C's BBQ! Cheers!

We hired Cowabunga BBQ for our daughter's High Graduation / 18th birthday celebration on 5/27/2017. Cowabunga BBQ was absolutely fantastic to work with. The food was beyond delicious; all of the guests were raving about how wonderful everything they prepared was. We could not decided if the potato salad, mac & cheese or the tri-tip was the favorite. Even more than that though was how incredibly wonderful and professional David and his amazing daughter Megan was. The food was delicious and top notch: the staff are friendly and so so helpful. Any event we host needing a caterer will be Cowabunga BBQ.

Polkadot Dinners is our favorite caterer. Rachel is one of the most professional caterers I know in the area. Her food is absolutely amazing and her presentation of her display of food just ties in with the theme of her menu which is a added plus. Definitely within anyone budget she can make it happen. Highly recommended.

Mimi and her staff were amazing; they by far exceeded my expectations. My safari baby shower was more than I ever hoped for because Mimi took the time to find out what was important to me and made it happen. Mimi was responsible for everything from set up, decorations, catering, games and cleanup. She and her very professional staff came into my home 4 hours prior to the party and transformed our living and dining room into a real safari jungle! She even hand made the party favor bags and they were so adorable. My guests were so amazed and had an amazing time. I can't wait to hire Mimi again soon!!! I must comment also on her staff: I felt like they were part of our family. They all brought the personal touch and were here at our service. The warmth and personality of her staff are beyond description.

DidiCoco's catered the appetizers for my 50th Birthday celebration. First thing that made me love them was that they were on schedule. Their set up and clean up went exactly as discussed. I really had my mind set on having lettuce wraps as a starter and DidiCoco's made it happen. I allowed them to choose the balance of the menu and the Chicken Salad finger sandwiches were great, along with a few other items. I hope to use them again at a future event.

Laurel was enthusiastic, professional and supplied the ideal buffet for a memorial service at very short notice. I would recommend her unreservedly. Everything was timely, skilfully served, and swiftly cleared.

I had a fantastic experience with Kincy Catering. All of the food dishes were great! The ribs were tender and juicy and had a very good flavor. My wife especially enjoyed the smoked chicken. Kincy also served a delicious macaroni and cheese for one of the side dishes that was a perfect complimant to the meal. One of the biggest selling points to Kincy Catering is the variety of different cuisines they offer, from traditional Soul food to Mexican and Chinese. They simingly can cater to all your request. I highly recommend Kincy Catering and i will defiantly use them in the future.

Chef Eileen was the greatest! This was a first time experience for us, hiring a personal chef for a small group of 8. It was a bachelorette party and the best touch to start an otherwise amazing weekend. Chef Eileen was professional, extremely sweet and most of all our 4 course dinner was delicious! The entire group was happy!! We will certainly do business again in the future and I believe she even gained new clients from our experience. Thank you Chef Eileen!!! All the best, Jenett

I just had Wicked Pig cater my son's graduation party and it was awesome. Carlo and Theo made it so easy. The chicken was to die for! Loved the grilled vegetables! Delicious! Excellent brisket and beans too! They delivered, put all the food on platters and then left. All I had to do was serve the food. It was perfect! I will definitely hire them again!

I loved my experience with this chef. On short notice he was able to deliver on all my expectations. He was personable and i felt as if i knew him forever. His qaulity of food preparation and presentation shows his passion of catering food and baked delicacies. Everything this chef touches resonates through his personality. I would highly recommend this chef and chef wife. Great people and company!

I couldn't have asked for a better experience having Chrysalis Catering working my son's graduation party. Tameeka had great communication skills. She always kept in contact with me before and during the event. She was professional and attentive to the needs of the party and made sure the meal was prepared on time. My guests were also impressed with Tameeka and asked for her card to cater their future events. This was the first time I used this app and my wife and I were pleasantly surprised. Chrysalis Catering is top notch.
