We had an amazing experience with Sat Khalsa for our wedding. He understood our needs perfectly, and went as far as researching traditional Mexican cuisine (which is quite complex... way beyond the beans, rice & guacamole that most Americans know as Mexican food) and creating a new exotic vegetarian dish that everyone loved. It was delicious!
We received excellent service from A Plus Catering. The food arrived on time, was tasty, and everything went as planned. I would recommend them for any event. Very professional, friendly and affordable.
Debbie did a great job! She was on time, provided EVERYTHING we needed, and gave us very generous portions of delicious food for our Mexican themed fiesta. We highly recommend her.
I hosted a 50th birthday dinner at our home last night form my wife and 12 of her close girl friends. Senorita Gourmet Andrea Gray catered a Mexican themed dinner for us and did an outstanding job. The ladies absolutely loved it and my wife could not have been more pleased with her birthday dinner. Thank you Andrea. We interviewed three other private chefs for our dinner before deciding to go with Andrea. She was the most professional, the most responsive, and by far the most creative. Of course we wanted great food (Andrea can deliver that), but we were also looking for something unique and creative, without being stiff and formal. Enter Andrea, with her Mexican themed dinner complete with her own plates, glasses and table decorations. Fun, Festive, and Uniquely Fresh! As for the food and drink. Key highlights were the Raspberry Mojitos, Avocado Soup, Quiche de Calebazita, and Mexican Corn Cake. I highly recommend the Una Senorita Gourmet.
My experience with Deborah for a professional business meeting was top notch. Prompt, plenty of food, catered to a picky audience (gluten free one person, another no tomatoes, another no cheese, bla bla bla). Everyone was impressed with the food, and the service. Many thanks. And it kept on giving, that night my 14 yr old freshman reminded me that it was his turn in Adviser session to bring snacks, so Wallah! - Bunt Cake to the rescue. It also turned out that another Advisor was not there and instead of the normal 8 - 10 kids they had two groups and only ONE treat. Again Bunt Cake to the rescue - he and 18 kids demolished that cake at school today and it was PERFECT! The salmon was divine - from the local fish market, and the desert, fresh peach and strawberry cobbler with homeade whip cream we are still eating.... Can't write a better story. I gave the Donuts to the staff and right now am eating cheeses and Kelly left for an evening meeting and discovered the left over pasta, so she's off with it, and we all had the rest of the salmon for dinner last night (except what's in the fridge). Masterful job! All ended well. thanks again from us all John
Celebrations by Chet Chase is a first class catering company. The food is delicious and elegantly prepared. Chet is wonderful and charming. I wholeheartedly recommend Celebrations by Chet!
They were wonderful to work with and the food was delicious. Aliki was very responsive and also came to serve the night of my event. Both Aliki and Costas were very pleasant and helpful throughout the party.
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.
Rose Johnson Catering was my party partner for our son’s engagement celebration last weekend in Orinda. The party was a huge success, and Rose and her team deserve much credit for the success. Rose responded to my Thumbtack inquiry with a prompt, thorough, and reasonable bid. However, after viewing her beautiful website, I replied to Rose that while I personally thought her menus were perfection, my son had specified that he did not want the food for his party to be “too fancy.” I told Rose the party would be a casual afternoon affair on our deck and I feared her culinary talents would be wasted on my son and my husband. Rose persevered, pointing out in her reply that she could do a barbecue with a southwestern flavor. The food need not be "fancy," she observed, but it should be tasty. And she sent me a custom menu that my son, his fiancée, my sisters, my husband and I all proclaimed perfect, including seared medium rare tri-tip of beef with chimichurri sauce, grilled cilantro chicken with tortillas, chipotle laced potato salad, and Mexican rice, bean, and corn salad. But Rose did not stop with sending me the menu; she said she would use my kitchen and grill on my deck, ensuring the food would be fresh as well as tasty. And after I hired her, she came to my home to check out my kitchen, my deck, and my grill and advised me on renting and setting up dining rounds and serving tables, as well as how to ensure good traffic flow for 50 guests. Rose is a real party expert, and I am not, so her advice was very much appreciated. The day of the party, Rose, Floricel and Esteban arrived a full two hours early and took charge. I hired Rose Johnson Catering for the food, which they delivered beautifully. As it turned out, they helped with the entire party, going above and beyond in many instances and showing poise and flexibility in the face of surprises, like my son’s decision to give a speech and set off a round of champagne toasts before dessert. Rose poured the champagne herself. Several guests asked me during the party: Who catered this? Who is your caterer? I happily provided several referrals to Rose Johnson Catering. Guest comments about the food were very positive: Mike: “The tri-tip was great.” Helen: “The grilled chicken was fabulous.” Kay: “I loved the potato salad. And the guacamole was wonderful.” Liz: “So nice to have so many dishes gluten-free.” Cindy: “The brownies were amazing. I told them so.” Bill: “Those parfaits were a big hit.” Matt: “Great food! Great service!” There was plenty of food for 50 guests, even with 1/3 of them being hungry 20-something friends of my son’s from high school and college. We even had leftovers, which Rose packed up and left in my refrigerator, along with leaving my kitchen cleaner than she found it. My husband, son, future daughter-in-law and I made a brunch of the leftovers the next day, sharing the delicious food and happy memories of a wonderful party. Best of all, this was the first party I’ve ever hosted where I had a great time myself. I don’t think I’ll have another big party again without booking Rose Johnson Catering!
I hired Kitchen 350 to cater a company holiday party of about 30 people in the Mission district of SF. Matt and his team were perfectly on time to prepare at the venue. He was also accommodating with the menu (we asked for French and BBQ), and the food was delicious! Not one complaint from an office of somewhat picky eaters. Also, his server, Daniel, was so attentive the entire party. It was a level of service I didn't expect from a caterer, and it was sincerely appreciated. They also had everything cleaned up by the time the party was over. I would definitely hire again!
Ania was so great to work with from the start. We had a 40th birthday dinner that we requested Mexican food for. Ania did a wonderful job listening to any restrictions we had and came up with a great menu. The meal was fab and we will use her again when we come back to St.Helena. Sandra klebba
Lindsey catered the food for my daughter's first birthday. The whole experience was great. The food was delicious, Lindsey was extremely responsive and accommodating. I got a lot of compliments from the guests on the food and would definitely hire Lindsey again.
Great experience! Wonderful food and service. We had a dinner for six outside and were treated like royalty!
We hired Farm to Table (Zachary Albright) to come to our house and prepare a meal for a birthday dinner for 14 people. The food was ABSOLUTELY amazing I wouldn't change a thing. The menu was extensive and the price was reasonable. I would suggest that he bring a helper as it was a little overwhelming for one person to prepare. I would highly recommend Farm to Table.
I had nothing less than the best experience with Kincy Catering, the food was cooked to perfection and presentation was wonderful !!! All at affordable prices ! I will be purchasing again :)
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.
Eileen was a pleasure to work with? The food was delicious, and everyone was extremely pleased. She was prompt, friendly and professional. We will definitely use her services again. Thanks Eileen!!
Basic Catering is much more than catering company, it is a full service event company. Aristotle says "if a man does many things, they cannot do one thing well." That's not the case with Basic Catering. I hired them for a small wedding reception, and I was very impressed with their service. I'll list them as follows: 1. All my guests raved about the food. It was perfectly cooked and the quantity was worth the value. 2. They rent out their own party rentals (tables, silverware, plates, etc.) at a cost cheaper than the competitors. This was significant savings for me with no sacrifice on the quality. This also made clean-up a lot easier. I was not worried about the clean-up, but it did save me on venue costs. (They also do flowers) 3. Lastly, the most impressive aspect of Basic Catering is their professionalism. There will always be something missing or something that goes wrong. Their team is extremely resourceful, from their planners (Ben) to the people executing (Carie) and the waitstaff -- I am a big fan of resourcefulness. They thought of things I missed, and if something was wrong they made it right. They are quick and smart, and know how to get things done. They assisted in making one of the most significant days of my life a wonderful event. Thanks Ben. You did a fantastic job coordinating.
Nikolitsa's food is SO delicious! I have yet to try anything Nikolitsa has made that I haven't loved. She cooks up some of the best vegan food I have ever tasted and I have been vegetarian or vegan for over 20 years. Nikolitsa is professional and personable and keeps her menu constantly changing with amazing new recipes. This is the kind of food that could turn meat eaters into vegans; everyone I recommend Nikolitsa's food to loves it.
"We recently hired Chef Rhonda for a dinner party I hosted in San Francisco for my husband 40th birthday. To say that Chef Rhonda exceeded our expectations is a complete understatement. Her attention to detail, relaxed and engaging personality, and culinary excellence all contributed to a very memorable evening. And FOOD....yes the FOOD.......amazing, or as Rhonda refers to it, "pretty straightforward." It was anything but straightforward. I knew we were in for a treat when Rhonda showed up at 11am to prepare for a 7pm dinner. Thank you Rhonda for an incredible evening."
The first time I used Alta Cuisine was in 2003 for my wedding. My guests, about 120, were blown away by the food. We did an international buffet and it was amazing. Since then my family and I have used Alta Cuisine to cater many other events from office Xmas parties to big birthday parties, baby showers and small functions like my sisters' bridal shower for 10 people. Every time Alta caters an event people go crazy over the food. What they don't know is how easy it is to work with Alta and her staff. Alta always lets me make small changes to her menu ideas (though I never make too many!). She remembers to ask me about details I forget to think of, like table clothes and plates. Her staff are always friendly and professional. I can not recommend Alta Cuisine enough!
