I had envisioned a very special party for 56 guests and wanted everything perfect. I interviewed 3 different companies with a special plan in mind. Chef Paul Mandalou was the only one, of the top ten rated caterers, that was willing to work with me. I wanted my party to feed people during the entire 4 hours without putting them on a schedule. One caterer submitted a beautiful presentation but it was something that you would see at a wedding with stations of different food. All food would be put out at the same time and cocktail hour was limited to one hour max before the entrée was served. This is not what I envisioned. The other guy had a nice presentation too but, once again, I would be limited to so much time for cocktails, appetizers, entrée and dessert. This was not what I had envisioned. I also wanted to sample some of the things that I wanted on the menu and the other 2 companies said they would do so but they were not very happy about this request. Chef Paul put together some amazing things for me to try 2 weeks after I contacted him. He came to my home to do so unlike the other 2 companies where I had to go to their facility. Not only was the sampled food fabulous but he was also willing to tweek a certain appetizer to my liking. I wound up getting 12 appetizers, a fabulous entrée with grilled vegetables and 3 desserts. Chef Paul is Greek so he made me 2 Greek dishes that were so good I will have to keep him on retainer just so I can get more. It is now 2 weeks after the party and my guests are still talking about it. Everyone stayed during the 4 hour time span, which is a very good sign that things are good, and the party continued into the wee hours. Everyone is still raving about the food and how personable Chef Paul was and his staff. I had 2 waiters and a Mixologist that he recommended and they would all hard working, friendly, on time and great with the clean up. Chef Paul may not have a pretty presentation like other companies but his food and service far exceed any other caterer I have used in the past. His presentation of everything is beautiful and he gives a 100 percent. He was present the whole time and did not make a lot of things in advance, like a lot of companies do, so everything was fresh and made in my home. My guests are telling me that this was the best party they have ever been to. If it were not for Chef Paul, I doubt that people would be saying this. People are telling me it was the party of the year. Would I hire Chef Paul again? Yes, without a doubt. He will be my special chef for life and I cannot wait to throw another party that he will cater. If you do not hire him, you are a fool ten fold. If you want pretty presentations and mediocre food, then don't hire him. If you want a party where the caterer tells you how it will work, then don't hire him. If you want fabulous food that people will rave about with gorgeous presentations, fabulous staff and a willingness to work with you, then Chef Paul is your man. I know I will never hire anyone else. Together we pulled off the best party I have ever thrown and I know this would never have happened if I had not hired him. If you want to call me and speak to me in person regarding a recommendation, I am more than willing to do so. Chef Paul has my permission to give out my home number upon request. Many thanks again to Chef Paul and his wonderful staff for making my special event spectacular.

We had an absolutely perfect and pleasant time working with Chef Arturo and his wife, Martha. We are located in the South Bay, CA and they're located in Northern California in Sacramento. First of all, we had a 400 person wedding. From their initial reach out to last interaction we never ran into an issue. We were invited into their home for a tasting and they value getting to know who they're going to serve before the event. I appreciate as an event coordinator that they require they visit the facilities before the event as well so that everyone is on the same page. The most compliments we received about our wedding was about the food. It's not easy preparing quality food for this amount of people, and every single person was satisfied with the appetizers and buffet style dinner that was served. They worked within our payment plan suggestions, kept in contact over the months leading up to the wedding, worked well with our wedding coordinator, and easy pulled this event off without expressing any type of stress towards us (the bride and groom). If we ever have a larger event that needs catering again, we will be using our new friends, Arturo and Martha.

Boris was extremely helpful in arranging a very nice gathering at our home for a select group of about 16 family members at my home. The dinner he prepared was delicious and exceeded our expectations. He was also accommodating in providing a bartender, and helping to arrange the dining and serving area and making suggestions. We loved the appetizers, the three different entrees and the dessert.

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner prepared by Rachel Griffith of Polkadot Dinners. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to cater an event. All of our guests so enjoyed and raved about the dinner. From the appetizers to dessert, all of the food was delicious and well presented. I would highly recommend Polkadot Dinners.

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.

Mimi catered our business networking holiday event. We wanted to have a variety of artisan appetizers, and Mimi delivered even more than expected. The food was delicious and the presentations of each appetizer made everyone say, "those look good" and "oh, I want to try one of these." Mimi and her staff were wonderful people. They were cheerful, helped open bottles of Champagne, extra touches, and they cleaned up the kitchen when they were done. We absolutely recommend them.

I used Kincy Catering for my birthday party. I requested food for 60 people. I contacted Kincy Catering two days prior to the party and he delivered! Kincy Catering provided lovely quality food for a great price! Mr. Kincy gives attention to detail so he provided exactly what I asked without complaint. He was able to provide delicious food in large quantities. I will refer everyone I know, and definitely use this service again!

I hosted an important client event and it just HAD to be perfect. The team from You've Been Served showed up on time, totally prepared and quickly set to work... Voila! The presentation was spectacular, the food was amazing and the guests were very impressed. Several of my clients have since contacted me about the catering and I'm happy to refer them to YBS.
