This was an elegant dinner celebrating a recent marriage for seven people. It began with passed hot and cold hors d'oeuvres, cheeses and champagne, and continued with a dinner featuring a delicious beet borscht fsoup, a refreshing salad and a main course featuring fillet mignon and seared tuna. A white chocolate mousse with berries completed the sumptuous meal. Food preparation and presentation were excellent as was the cleanup.

We hired Rocco to come cook for our Mother's Day dinner. He did a great job planning the meal and altering it to people's likes and dislikes. He was organized, friendly, and the most wonderful personal chef you could ask for. Our family already decided that the next time we do this, he will be the first person we contact!!!!! He left the kitchen cleaner than it was before and our bellies VERY happy!!!! THANK YOU ROCCO!

We used Cazadores for our Startup Weekend. We reserved three meals: a lunch, and two dinners. The Indian buffet was delicious! It catered our vegan, vegetarian, and omnivore needs! Everyone raved about the Indian food! We also received a Mexican taco dinner. Similarly, Evan and his team grilled the meat and had hot tacos with all the fixings! There was even churros filled with caramel and vanilla custard! Bomb!!! Everyone also enjoyed the Chinese food. It was hard to resist!

Sat was the perfect Chef for my New Years Eve party. He was very responsive and great to work with planning the meal. He arrived right on time to begin prep and delivered a fantastic multi course evening. We choose a prime rib and a halibut option and both got rave reviews as did the hors d'oeuvres and appetizers. I'd highly recommend Chef Sat.

Hi had the pleasure of selecting Chet to prepare a menu and work my Friendsgiving event which was my first time starting a tradition with my friends. From Chet's initial response to my quote request through the end of my event, the services provided were first class! Chet worked with me on my menu and I felt that he truly listened and took my vision into consideration when delivering my sample menu. I was extremely nervous since in the past, I would always be the one to prepare meals for my guest however, this year I wanted to do something different allowing me the opportunity to spend time with my guest instead of slaving in the kitchen. Chet checked in with me a few days prior to my event to confirm final details and then it was show time. He showed up on time as expected with everything needed along with a helper and the magic began. I am very satisfied with the outcome. From the taste and flavors of the food, the presentation, the hospitality Chet and his crew showed my guest, the clean up, to Chet's willingness to do more than expected (setting up tableware and more). A+ to Chet. He will certainly be my go to for future events in need of catering. Well done!

I wanted to have a gorgeous dinner party for 30 of my colleagues at my home, and Graham and his staff made that happen. He took care of EVERYTHING - planned the meal, shopped, set a stunning table, brought perfectly paired wine and cooked and served everything. It was a seamless, lovely meal and we all felt like we'd been transported to an elegant yet relaxed restaurant. As the Host, it was a completely stress- free experience, and everyone is asking when we'll do it again...soon! Graham left everything spotless and everyone smiling. This guy can cook...and he's wonderful to have around. Two big thumbs up.

Daniella prepared a lovely meal for our team offsite. She took into account multiple dietary restrictions and created a delicious spread that included beverages, salad, sandwiches, sides, and incredible chocolate chip cookies (baked fresh that morning!). She was very easy-going and easy to communicate with.

Rose and her crew were wonderful. 5 star service and meal for sure. She prepared an absolutely delicious meal for our party of 12. She served 3 different appetizers, a wonderful salad, an entree of our choice and all were superb. Then to top it all off she prepared a fantastic dessert. It was so nice to stay in and enjoy the beautiful house we had rented in Santa Rosa while being served a wonderful meal! Highly recommend Rose!

Rainbow Chefs were reliable, professional, and punctual. The entrees were truly impressive-- as good as top SF restaurants we have been to. The desserts and appetizers were also super tasty. The chef was really nice and easy to work with, and the person we spoke with to arrange everything was great as well. The price was reasonable for the services provided. Only reason we are not giving 5 stars is because the first dish, the salad, was super over-salted and pretty lackluster in ingredients. I was definitely worried that the rest of the meal would not be good, but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of everything else. All in all, I would definitely recommend them.

Lucas Lovelace and his Team (2 server) helped us to celebrate our 100th Birthday (50 + 50 years) and brought a fantastic restaurant experience in our kitchen to the 20 guests at our home. From the first contact to the final touches on the three course dinner it had been a lot of fun to work with Lucas. He is very professional, courteous and an excellent chef with attention to detail. The food was outstanding and the Team left the kitchen as clean as they found it before the dinner preparation. We will definitely hire Lucas Lovelace again for one of our next parties!

Wow, Hassan delighted our guests with a very tasty meal we sampled for a VIP birthday party. Hassan showed up on time, prepared, quickly served the first course, and cleaned up promptly after the meal was finished. The meal was well planned and the ingredients were top grade.

We hired Mark to cater brunch for our wedding, and we were very impressed! He replies in a timely manner to questions, requests, and concerns. From the moment he reached out in response to my project on Thumbtack, Mark worked hard to accommodate our needs. He made sure that we felt good about the menu before we booked him, and had us over for a tasting. Additionally, he noticed an item we didn't originally include on the menu and graciously added it to the meal (potatoes!). Many of our guests made comments to us about how much they enjoyed the food, and everyone (about 130 people) had as much to eat as they wanted with food left over. My only regret was that as the bride I didn't have the chance to eat as much of that AMAZING French toast as I wanted!

I hired Chef Dan for a corporate team dinner for 28 colleagues at a private venue in San Francisco. Dan is an absolute pleasure to work with. He is friendly, responsive, thoughtful, creative and detail oriented. Each step of the planning process went off without a hitch (menu selection, wine pairing advice) On the day/evening of our event, prep and service was smooth, and our meal was beautifully presented and delicious. Our team had an amazing time! I highly recommend Mise En Place & Dan!

Chef Sacha has prepared meals for me on several occasions. Whether a special event or dinner party, he always takes great care to ensure that the ingredients used are in season, and of quality. He is understanding and willing to accommodate any food allergies or aversions, and provides options for those with specialty diets. His twist on French classics creates flavor combinations that are tasteful and surprising, while his take on American bistro fare elevates your childhood favorites. His meals are always delicious, and the presentation impeccable. I highly recommend Chef Sacha for any of your culinary needs.

Meg prepared meals for us weekly for the past year, and her food is scrumptious! In addition to cooking really delicious meals, she tailored our menus to fit some fairly complicated dietary restrictions. The dishes were flavorful, complex, and satisfying. If you are lucky enough to hire her, you won't be disappointed!
