I had Paul over to my house for the second time when I was hosting a holiday dinner party for 7. Paul is uber passionate about what he does and it is extremely evident in the food he makes. It is a five star meal in your own home. He prepared appetizers and full course meal. Butternut squash soup that was to die for, salad, steak (everyone asked for different temps from rare to well done and all were perfectly done), veggies, smashed potatoes and dessert. I have a decent wine selection at my house and Cliff and Paul pair the wines with each part of the meal. He brings Cliff with him to serve as he is cooking and he is just a pleasure to be around. The first time I had Paul over I had 10 people and he executes the dinner with perfection. It is was all girls and we can get deep into girl talk and they just rolled with it, we all felt very comfortable around them both. He is worth every cent we paid, and this won't be the last time I invite him (and cliff) into my home.

Boris came to our house and taught us an intermediate level cooking class. We were able to improve our chopping skills and create a whole Indian meal. The food was delicious and Boris was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Great overall experience!

I've used Polkadot Dinners to cater 2 different events. One was a high school event and the other was for a company lunch. Both times I felt she went above and beyond with not only her service but the food provided. I will definitely use her again if I ever need a caterer

Palate did an incredible job catering a long weekend of meals for our ~50 wedding guests over Labor Day weekend 2015! They went above and beyond our expectations and provided delicious hot buffet breakfasts, a picnic lunch, a buffet dinner and a BBQ cookout dinner that everyone just loved. They made lots of dishes from scratch including yummy veggie burgers. We had a number of guests with dietary restrictions and they made sure there was something for everyone. And catering outside in the forest is not a simple task! Heather and Mike are a pleasure to work with, and their attention to detail is exceptional. Highly recommended!

Tim Shields is a talented culinary artist. He prepared for us a delicious four-course birthday dinner including a luscious soup and cake from scratch. Tim arrived prepared with everything needed from ingredients and tasting spoons to a full range of cook ware. During the preparation and meal, his knowledge and flair provided us with information and inspiration. The delicious food was well paired with his interesting contributions to our conversation. Tim gave us a truly joyful evening, and we look forward to having him back in the future!

Chef James came to our home for a private Anniversary dinner and I was blown away with not only his fabulous cuisine but the entire experience. The table was set up beautifully and the professionalism and cuisine was that of a five star restaurant experience. With each course he explained the meal, ingredients and preparation. It was truly a one of a kind experience I highly would recommend to anyone.

I can't express enough just how much of a pleasure it was having Michelle as a catering partner. She is a true asset to anyone who is looking for a winning caterer. I have worked with Michelle on numerous occasions and she has always gone above and beyond the call of duty. From her work ethics to her overall performance and professionalism she takes pride in everything she does. I have known Michelle to be the go-to person when needing to get things done. She's always willing to help where she can and will volunteer her time and services for a good cause. I enjoyed working with her and look forward to many more opportunities of working together in the future. If you're looking for a great caterer, Michelle is the one!

Daun is now in Lodi but covers a large surrounding area as well. I needed an alternate to fast food and typical restaurants and junk food I would get on the run. Daun is very knowledgeable,experienced, and flexible and prepares healthy meals for me and delivers 3 times a week. Waaay better than any commercial food delivery I have tried in the past and keeps me satisfied and out of the drive through. Daun makes this an affordable luxury (necessity if I want to improve my health) that I thought would be too expensive. If I added up all my receipts for fast food, restaurants and junk food in the recent past I think I am actually spending less now to have fresh, delicious, healthy meals on a daily basis. Life is better now because I have more time and less stress, in addition to eating a much healthier menu.

Our family has had Grant over 3 times of cooking sessions. Each time we have tried fun and exciting meals. The last session I asked Grant to help me make a 3 course meal from what I had in my fridge and pantry. It was amazing! We have 5 kids and they all enjoy cooking with Grant. As a home cook, I have learned so many tips from Grant that anything I cook for my family so much more flavorful. Grant has become quick addition to our family.

It is my pleasure to offer a review of Sylvia's catering, culinary expertise and work ethic. I have enjoyed years of her cooking as she and I were coworkers. In addtion she has catered a couple parties for our family. Sylvia is classically trained so she may provide any food item or method requested. She is also of course very proficient in kitchen safety, equipment, hygiene, prep, timing and temperature requirements. Now for food! Sylvia has a special sense for pairing and encorporating big flavors and complimentary textures. Whether is is fried chicken and mashed potatoes you are after or exotic flavors of the Far East and Carribean Islands, she can provide. Personally I prefer the latter and the spices and flavors Sylvia creates are completely delicious. Some examples include her Chana Alu (curry chick pea and potato), chilie spiced salsas and chutneys, and tangy tomato marinaras. Our family perferes the Caribbean flavors and a recent menu included jerk spiced chicken (and tofu), coconut prawn, chana alu, spicy mango chutney, yougart/ dill chutney, green salad and cilantro/ lime rice. Sylvia graces any atmoshere with exuberance, style, positivity and professionalism. Highly recommened!

Our Personal Chef Charlito Aseberos is absolutely amazing! Chef was very diligent in making sure the menu was perfect for us. We met with him on several occasions and he answered any questions we had and worked wonderfully with our budget. He's extremely professional and well prepared. Chef is the complete package deal if you want elegant, delicious food in the comfort of your own home. It is such a wonderful treat, to have someone come into your home and prepare the food. We had a dinner this past summer with special friends & co-workers, and EVERYONE raved about the food Chef presented us! We got tons of compliments from our guests. He was on time, professional, and a pleasure to be around. He cleaned up everything and it was like he wasn't even there. The food was everything! The presentation was beautiful and tasty. Delicious international foods including appetizers, salads, main course and everything. If you're looking for amazing food, great service, affordable and an unforgettable experience, I would definitely recommend our Personal Chef Charlito. My husband and I are truly grateful for such a wonderful experience. Chef offers a unique and special experience for those who are looking to celebrate an occasion, entertaining guests, or take cooking lessons. Thank you Chef Charlito!

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.
