Marcel was EXCELLENT! I had an unusual catering job, one he hadn't done before. He was terrific at following up with me, patient when I had to delay getting back to him, and took care to understand exactly what I needed. And then he carried it out to the letter, with perfect results. And he's super easy to work with. By sheer coincidence, one of my event attendees had used his catering services just a couple of months before, and also had only glowing reviews of his food and his service. If you have need for catering or chef services, you can't go wrong by hiring Marcel for the job. I can't wait to use him again!

We hired Tony for a family reunion of well over 200 people. He arrived well before the guests to set up his bar and equipment. His bar is outstanding! We were all very impressed with his professionalism, sense of humor, and respect he showed toward everyone. All drinks requested were provided, not to mention some going back to the 1960's. The price for his services was unbeatable. Will definitely hire Tony again.

Rob bartended for an afternoon at my 40th poolside birthday party, expertly catering to the needs of 20 guests with diverse needs and requests. His drinks were top notch and he was proactive in asking guests what they wanted and making the pool rounds. And working with Rob was a breeze, as he was responsive to email and had helpful suggestions beforehand about the shopping and drink list. Five stars!!

Eddy was incredible! The event was in Los Feliz where any day parking is a challenge. Eddy went to the property, assessed local available parking and gave a great estimate on the number of valets which would be required to service 50+ cars. When I arrived, there were valets available, extremely helpful and polite. When leaving, my car was delivered in a most timely manner. I am a corporate catering manager in Orange County and I'm pretty anal about details. I am very impressed with the service and so were all of the guests, because I asked.

We live in Laguna Niguel, and Madkins Catering was on time and I remember saying to the waitstaff, "omg, there's still more food?! Needless to say there was so much food. Madkins Catering was upfront with me in the very beginning explaining how much of each appetizer or food item I'd actually be getting which is great. I think we adjusted the amounts a few times because I thought it was going to be too much food lol, and it ended up being still too much food.... But who's complaining? :-) My guests were very pleased with the meal and left on a very very full stomach. This company is very nice and professional and delivered exactly what I wanted. I forgot to do a review at the time of the event, but the event was about 2 weeks ago. Everyone please try them, the food is delicious and at a great price!

I was in charge of bar services for my sister's 50th birthday and JaNae made the "job" easy for me. She was very pleasant to work with from the very beginning. She replied promptly to all my questions. She created the perfect signature drink for my sister. She and Alyssa showed up on the day of the event in a timely manner to set up, they were professionally dressed and with a vibrant, happy personality. They were a hit with all of our guests. They served delicious drinks, kept the lines to a minimum (150 guests) and overall their presence and service created a fun and positive atmosphere for our event. My family and I will definitely consider JaNae and Glamorous Drinks for any of our future bartending needs. Thank you JaNae!

I hired Jill's bartending service for an event I was hosting in which we had no idea what kind of drinks we wanted. Jill was great because she took charge and helped us create a perfectly themed drink menu that was appropriate for our event. During the event, she was awesome! Not only did she keep the drinks coming but she kept the attendees entertained. Jill was truly everything you want your bartender to be!

In the past five years my husband and I have attended several fantastic entertainment and charitable fundraisers produce by The Mark Kearney Group. Our memorable highlights include The Jewel's of France in Beverly Hills for Juvenile Arthritis hosted by Teri Hatcher , MKG Emmy suite for breast cancer hosted by Adrienne Malouff, Project Angel Food hosted by Lisa Vanderpump. I hired Chef Mark and his fabulous catering company for our wedding this April in Newport Coast California. We absolutely adore his five star Pacific Rim cuisine. The catering crew was professional, kind and captivating. It truly made our Wedding Day special.

Open Bar provided services for my grandmother's funeral and I couldn't ask for a more professional service and at the price they charged, it felt like a steal. It was so easy to book them - Brooke, one of the owners was incredibly responsive and indulged all of my questions - and communicating my needs for the event was easy and stress-free. The bartender arrived early, was dressed very professionally, and maintained an air about him that was perfect for the tone (being a funeral and all). He made sure my parents were taken care of, and kept the bar area neat. I can't recommend Open Bar enough!

I hired smoking Gun bartending to do a annual halloween party me and my wife do every year. This time we wanted to make it more of a professional event, so we hired catering, security, and a Bartender by the name of Luke. I was very impressed at how Luke handled our guests needs, he even created some aweome spooky themed drinks off the top of his head. I as well as all my guest of about 95 friends and family had a amazing halloween bash and making the decision to hire Smokin Gun was one of the main reasons. Thank you luke for you’re fun attitude and tasty drinks. Defenitly recomend him the his service if you can book him!

Alexis was amazing form start to finish! I was giving a last minute birthday party for my husband and 4 other friends. I had a theme in mind and a budget to work with for about 20 people. Alexis came up with great suggestions for my theme and stayed right on budget. She delivered, prepared and set up everything for me and all with grace and charm. The food was way beyond the quality I expected. I clearly got more than I paid for too. I highly recommend her custom catering services and will definitely call on her again when the need arrises.

Hiring Steven and his phenomenal crew was the best decision we could have made for our event! We were tremendously impressed by Steven's professionalism and flexibility to all of our requests, he is an incredibly smart and resourceful businessman and was able accommodate our many brand-standards (for a very attractive price) and wow our guests with the results. The food was simply delicious, the service was exceptional (very warm and affable) and the set up/breakdown was seamless even in our small half kitchen and office space! If you're looking to work with a professional and provide a seamless catering service at your next event, I urge you to hire Steven!!

We have used Chef Mikey for both meal prep and catering. He is truly a gem. The meals he has prepped are flavorful, good variety and perfectly portioned. The last party Chef Mikey catered for us, he made jerk chicken wings that people couldn’t stop talking about. I’m craving them right now! I would highly recommend him for meal prep, private dinner parties or catering!
