Chef Marcel catered my party. It was in my backyard for 40 people, mostly adults. Guests loved the food. The staff Chef hired were professional and did a wonderful job. I will hire him again when I have another party.

I hired Gourmet Lovers Catering for my parent's 40th anniversary party. I had them do the dinner and the cake for 100 people. Everything went very smoothly and it was very easy to work with them. Most importantly, the food got very high remarks from the guests. Because of the stress, I couldn't eat more than a few bites that day, but even the left overs the next day were great! If there is another event that I need catered in the future, I will definitely be giving them a call again.

I hosted my best friend's birthday party over the weekend and it needed to be perfect. I received a quote from radish and rose, did some research and ultimately hired them. I have never met a more efficient resourceful catering crew in my life. They helped with setting up and were EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL. They came early to set up and the waiters were the best. When the party started the appetizers came out and people were commenting on how good the food was and how beautifully presented it was. There was absolutely nothing left over. Deserts came out and was just as delightful. Everyone had something nice to say, and most importantly my friend was really pleased.

I hired these guys about a year ago for a small dinner party, about 5 of us. It was such a great experience! It was a while ago so I can't remember the chef's name, I think it was David, he was on time, professional, super friendly, did a great job working with my tiny apartment kitchen and crappy old stove. The food was impeccable! No joke BEST crab cakes I've ever had in my life! We all had a great time and my friends were also so impressed with the food. They still talk about the dinner. I'm not a fancy person who hires private chefs all the time, it was my first, but it was such a great experience I would do it again if a special occasion came up and would absolutely hire him again! Highly recommend! It took so long to leave this review because I forgot to do it last year and I'm an outta sight outta mind person, unfortunately, but I just got on here to look for another service and saw them on my list and had to leave this review. Won't disappoint!

I almost don't want to share my review of Susan to keep her all to myself! Susan made our dinner party dreams come true! From the start, she was very responsive and helpful in guiding me through the menu choosing process. She is super organized and beyond kind. She arrived prepped, dressed professionally and ready to go for our first dinner party of 8 with two servers. She masterfully orchestrated a 6 course meal with PERFECT timing. I can't emphasize enough how key her timing was...the evening flowed flawlessly because of her. She and her team were respectful and accommodating to all guests throughout the night. My kitchen looked even cleaner than when she arrived by the end of the night as well. Aside from all these operational details, her food is exquisite. We've had her now for 2 dinner parties for 8-9 people each. We've enjoyed her ahi tuna bites, salads, chicken, braised short ribs, sea bass, filet mignon, and desserts (especially the peanut butter truffles!). Her sauces are mouth watering. I'll stop here before I get too hungry!

WE WOULD GIVE 10 STARS IF WE COULD!!!   Chef Mumsie and her team were impeccable from start to finish.  We bid for catering and event planning assistance for our three corporate events and loved the personalization and variety presented by Chef Mumsie.  Once we were put in contact with Bridgette the event committee had all of their questions answered professionally and in a timely manner.   She offered to give us a tasting which put our minds at ease since we were looking for multiple events with completely different expectations.  We contracted with the Chef Mumsie team for our Officer’s Retreat, Product Launch Press Party and the Employee/Family Picnic.  They proved that they can execute any type of event flawlessly…  the plated, upscale 5-course dinner for our 10 corporate officers and their spouses, the cocktail party with tray passed hors d’oeuvres for 200 during the new product launch and the fun, casual employee/family picnic for 500.  When completing three different events in three days at three different locations we somewhat expected some minor hiccups but to our astonishment not only did we get everything we wanted they even surprised us with things we never anticipated, such as the personalized ice sculpture for the officer’s dinner or the live chef action Flight! at the launch party and the cotton candy, popcorn and fondue stations for the picnic.  Those personal touches surprised us yes but they were also the things that took our events from nice to EXTRAORDINARY.  The planning committee has received ongoing praise for the success of our weekend’s festivities but we know we owe it all to Chef Mumsie and her incredible team.  Without a doubt, this is now officially our catering company for all our corporate events.   A million Thanks, Oliver!  J Davis and Compan

I have used Jesse's business to cater gatherings at my house, from 40 to 70 people, on three separate occasions. Every time, I have been extremely happy with his service, his professionalism, and the quality of his food. The variety and amount of food he serves, along with toppings and even plates and plasticware, make it a really great value for the money. I just provide a fruit platter, drinks, and dessert and the party is covered. And when he's done, he even bags up the extras for you to keep. Being able to enjoy your own party and visit with your guests instead of working the whole time in the kitchen and then having to clean up is a great deal. My guests have raved about the service and the food each time and I can't compliment him enough. Tacos El Rey is a great way to go for large parties.

Chef Keith and his staff were great! He arrived early, set up amazing food stations and a bar for our non-profit cocktail party. The lamb chops, POKE station, "mushroom en croute", short rib skewers, cheese platter, and dessert bar complete with deep fried brownies were all a huge hit. Chef Keith really impressed my guests and made me look like a superstar hostess. I would hire him again and many of my friends and associates took his card for future catering events. Loved the bartender, server and Keith's helpers. My kitchen was spotless also...worth it!

I truly couldn't have imagined a better catering experience than West Hollywood Sausage Co. and Peter. He catered my boyfriends 30th birthday at our place and made it such a special event. First of all, his food was phenomenal. Everything from his appetizers (we got the pulled pork sliders and brie and grape quesadillas) and all of the entree dishes were incredible. People were finding me all night to ask about the catering because it was so delicious. Ive found myself craving it since. But even beyond that, he added so much to the party from how he catered it. He passed appetizers over drinks, and for dinner kept replenishing the buffet with warm and delicious food straight off of the grill. He couldn't have been more of a pleasure to work with - he made everything in planning the party very easy. On the night of, he arrived early and not only set up his grill and everything for the food, but helped me with the our rented tables and chairs and other aspects of setting up the party. I felt so at ease with his help. If you're looking for a caterer, I don't think you could do any better than Peter and West Hollywood Sausage Co. I will definitely hire them for all other events I have from here on out.

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 asked our friends and family members who had recently been married what they thought the most important part of the wedding was, and they unanimously said "THE FOOD". From the moment we requested a quote Bill's attention to detail made it a wonderful and memorable experience. We were provided with and absolutely delicious lunch at our tasting; where Bill customized our menu to fit our unique wedding theme. The staff was friendly, informative, professional and genuinely warm and kind. Bill's help however moved beyond his fabulous food. For any and EVERY coordination mishap, he was there with creative and inventive solutions. His staff went above and beyond, even assisting in set up and decoration. We were truly overwhelmed by their generosity and their willingness to be of assistance. On our wedding day, as we ran from the car to the venue to avoid the terrible storm; we were greeted by Bill with a mini buffet for the bridal party so that we would have a chance to actually eat at our wedding. To say the food was amazing is an understatement. I cannot describe how delicious it was or how beautifully and artfully arranged. I truly cannot do it justice. When asked, our guest said that hands down, it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Our menu included custom flank steak sliders with asian slaw, a variety of sushi, mini ribs, chicken skewers, grilled vegetable stuffed crepes, procuitto wrapped asparagus, endive spoons filled with tabouleh, chicken sate, and so much more. The service was impeccable and after everything was done, the staff cleaned and left everything immaculate. Most importantly, Bill was sensitive and understanding of our situation. You see , we were two brides. Bill and his staff were shining examples of what it is to treat everyone with equality and dignity and respect. We were afraid of vendors not wanting to work with us and Bill took all that anxiety away. Through his vast network he found amazing and supportive vendors who were ready to celebrate with us and were empowered by our decision to get married. We cannot thank Bill enough for the many kindnesses he bestowed on us and we cannot wait to eat at his amazing restaurant again. - C & A

This was the first time I ever had a holiday dinner catered, and I couldn't be happier to have come across Rich at RE Catering. He was a most pleasant person to deal with, and true to his word. He delivered exactly what he promised... delicious home made food, piping hot on Thanksgiving afternoon, with plenty of leftovers. He delivered everything from rolls and butter to pumpkin pie and apple pie. The only thing I supplemented was sweet potato casserole. Although catering our holiday meal was supposed to be an exceptional event to accommodate my hectic work schedule, we are now considering having it caterer by Rich every year. 😋
