Baja's Tacos was BEST QUALITY AND BEST SERVICE. The owner really cares about his customers and his reputation. All of my 75 guest said Baja Tacos was by far the best taco caterer they had ever had. My guest have used many local caterers in the past and I am still receiving excellent feedback on how Great the food was. I would highly recommend this company. Thank you Baja Taco.....

I don't even know where to begin! Jose is an amazing caterer and I am so happy we hired him for our wedding this past Friday. When we were first tasting caterers food they all seemed metiocre but Joses was amazing! We hired him on the spot! Not to mention he was the most reasonable price! Then everyone was making me nervous saying that catered food is never as good when they have too cool it in large quantities (we had 180 people). When we got to the reception everyone was already eating appetizers and happy. When Jose spotted my husband and I he came up to us and told us he had made us each an appetizer plate and if we wanted it. Then he came up to me to make sure I wanted dinner served when I had originally asked. I did and he brought us the first 2 plates. The food was amazing! Just as good as I remember! Everyone was so pleased and kept talking about how the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding! That was exactly what I wanted! His bartender was amazing and all his staff was so friendly. The setup looked nice and professional. The drinks he brought were great and everyone was talking about how great the mint water was! Then I ordered cheeseburger sliders and French fries to be served late night and they were amazing! He even brought wings and everyone was so excited! They went fast and by the time I got over there everything was gone. Jose told me let me get your plates and pulled out two foil covered plates. He always thought of us first and without him I wouldn't have eaten. All day everything had hiccups and my rentals were late, everything was slightly wrong except Jose! He really came through and went above and beyond. I will definitely hire him again for any events and recommend him to the fullest!

I'm the West Coast Manager of the Warrior Support Team, an outreach program of MarineParents.com. We serve dinner to the Wounded Warrior Batallion at the Naval Medical Center, San Diego every Thursday. Because this is a military base, caterers are sometimes reluctant to follow the procedures necessary to get through the security gate and deliver the food. June and Gary not only were willing to deliver the food, but did so on time, which is critical for us. The food itself was excellently prepared and flavorful. I look forward to working with June Sper Catering on a regular basis.

Excellent service! Premier quality food. We were in a time crunch and Ron came through in a very big way. Prime Cuts was pivotal in making Christmas on board USS WAYNE E. MEYER great. I highly recommend this service to anyone looking to host a great meal at a very fair price. Thanks again Prime Cuts, you made our Sailors very happy on a holiday away from their families.

Chef Mumsie is, without exception, one of the best caterers I have worked with in the Los Angeles area. Her personal service, commitment to excellence, and over-and-above contributions made our several week-long meetings (during Summer 2014) a huge success. The menus were savory and enjoyed by all guests, the food was delivered fresh, not and easy for us to display well. Knowing that all the catering was completely taken care of allowed me to focus on the things that mattered--my guests! Not a single detail was missed. I very highly recommend Chef Mumsie's services to anyone in the Orange or Los Angeles County areas for any event, large or small. Without question, I will be a repeat customer! Thank you!

I contacted Sage Bleu based on the reviews I saw here. Although there were other caterers with more reviews, I was looking for a talented caterer, not jaded by decades in the business, who would go the extra mile to deliver superlative food and service. The reviews I saw here painted a picture of incredible food and personalized, unobtrusive, caring service, so I called Sage Bleu. When I spoke with Lavonne, I casually mentioned a few dishes that only the most savvy food aficionado would know. She subtly let me know that she not only knew what those dishes were, but knew how to prepare them. SOLD! I had Sage Bleu cater a casual neighborhood get together as well as a white tablecloth dinner for a dozen finicky business associates. The food selections were appropriate for both crowds. The food, wine pairings and presentation were impeccable. Service began exactly at the appointed time and clean-up was to the highest white glove standard. I cannot recommend Sage Bleu highly enough!

We hired Paraiso Delicacies for our company Holiday Luncheon. Overall the food was good and the desserts were scrumptious. The service was great and Joanie and Chelsea were very professional. We received a lot of positive feedback from employees. One employee wrote “I thought the lunch was fantastic, the food was great, I liked it because it seemed more homemade and not just pre-made buffet food.” Our company was very pleased that Paraiso Delicacies catered the luncheon.

Dave and his team did a fantastic job catering our event of 300 guests. They were even able to accommodate a last minute addition of 75 extra meals! They were prompt, professional, and friendly. Dave was very easy to work with on the contract and menu, and provided a meal that accounted for food allergies. I highly recommend Dave and Steal Your Taste Catering for any event, large or small.

I was searching online and I found a website called thumbtack so I put my name and what kind of catering I need and about the price and how many people that I needed this for, in about 30 minutes I started getting different quotes and different estimates for exactly what I was looking for, the first person to respond to me was Avian he called me and we discussed what I needed and gave me a couple different quotes eventually he ended up working with me and the price that I needed I thought for sure it was a home run and it turned out to be an absolute success the food was amazing and there was plenty of it he worked with whatever we needed him to work with with no complaints he was very professional and he was very understanding and our families time of grieving if I had to hire him again I would do it in an instant without thinking twice and I would recommend him to any of my friends and family but I can't really say that now because my whole family did eat from him and they loved it they raved about it. The taco cart was amazing everything was so fresh I'm actually craving some of the adobada he made... 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 when the party was done he left us all the leftovers thank God cuz the next day after the party we didn't want to cook so we ended up making rolled tacos out of the meat that he left us and again it was still absolutely delicious I would like to say thank you again to Avian and his family for catering our party our family will have you back anytime thank you again so much

Jennifer and Annette were amazing! They catered my wedding of 160 people and every one of my guests came up to me and told me how good their food was. Also, how friendly they were as well. Their vegetable tuscany pasta was a hit! The red roasted potatoes were seasoned to perfection and the chicken was tasty and moist. I would highly recommend tray gourmet catering for anybodys event.

We had a phenomenal Thanksgiving Dinner prepared and delivered by BAPS catering. We were expecting about 20 people for our holiday dinner and BAPS catering delivered a wonderful meal that everyone loved. The turkey was moist, the vegetables, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and pumpkin cheesecake were delicious. Needless to say, we had enough food to satisfy everyone and still had some great Thanksgiving leftovers. We would definitely recommend BAPS catering for everyone who wants tasty food cooked just the way you like. Thanks for helping us make our holiday dinner such a success!

Our plans to have our wedding meal prepared by our favorite restaurant fell thru 3 weeks before our wedding. I knew Christine Mcmaster as an excellent cook and had been to 2 private dinners catered by her. Quite anxious, I called her and she put me at ease with her assurances and suggestions to take my time and figure out what we would really like. Great advice! We chose Mediterranean food. Together with Chris we quickly settled on a menu. There were so many details but she handled it all from overseeing the table setting, shopping, deliveries and arranging table display. It was amazing I actually could relax. The meal was sumptuous elegantly prepared and plated all by Chris and her kitchen staff. Our dinner menu was: A simple greek salad, hummus, tzatziki, baba ganoush, roasted vegetables, flat bread Then Shawarma lamb, roasted chickens, and feta rice w/ pistachios. There were 35 people at the wedding meal and all the courses were on time and beautifully plated. The kitchen was quiet and when I went in everyone was smiling and extremely busy. Chris ran the kitchen in a quiet organized way that was contagious to all who worked there. Truly an amazing woman. Her sense of elegance shined thru both in the delicious food and its presentation. My husband and I will have lasting memories of Christine and how she stepped in and played an integral part in helping create our dream wedding. I highly recommend you have her cater any function. All you have to do is relax and enjoy it.

When we were looking for a professional to cater our clubhouse event, we contacted five companies. Creative Catering from Temecula was one of those five. From the start, we were very comfortable talking and working with the owner, Tanya. She is extremely friendly and accommodating. Tanya provided us with sample meals to taste and was able to provide guidance from start to finish. As our guest list grew from 30 to 60 she was able to be very flexible to whatever changes needed to be made. Every time we had a question or menu change, Tanya responded promptly and professionally. On the evening of the clubhouse social, Tanya and her assistant were very punctual. The set-up, service and clean-up went flawlessly. Feedback from our club members was very positive. Our guests commented to us how well the meals tasted and how professional Tanya and her assistant were. The bottom line is that we would highly recommend Creative Catering and we will be looking forward to using them in the future. NJ and LJ (55+ Club)

Michael and his team at URBN went above and beyond to make our corporate event a success! Their Pizzas were delicious and very well received by the entire team! Plus the fact that they bake them on the spot in their oven creates an unique experience. I would highly recommend them to anyone and will certainly use them again. Thanks on behalf of the entire Fox team!
