I would definitely recommend Rocco for any of your catering/chef needs. Rocco helped me customize a menu for my husbands birthday dinner and was able to accommodate exactly what I needed and cater to all of my special requests. Rocco arrived on time and made the entire experience very enjoyable. He educated us on what we were eating and the preparation of it, and he was such a friendly guy, sharing many stories with us. Not to mention the food was amazing! I had salmon and my husband had lamb and both dishes were absolutely delicious. Rocco cleaned up as he went as well. It was awesome being able to have the restaurant experience without having to lift a finger or a foot. Rocco is awesome and we thank him for allowing us to have such a memorable night :)

The catering job I just experienced this past Saturday, Dec 28, 2013, with Taqueria Cazadores was excellent and I'd like to max out the stars for them. Although they are area-renowned for their Mexican offerings, I learned they also cater good 'ol BBQ which I chose for my 60 guests for my son's Boy Scout Eagle Court of Honor. Nearly all guests went out of their way to tell me how excellent the food was. Way to go, Evan!!! For readers: Evan was there plenty early; had all the food ready on time; no problems with portions; and even went out of his way for having vegan-type food for a few of my guests. Thank you, Larry

We LOVED Taqueria Cazadores! Very professional set up, more than enough (very delicious) food and super friendly staff. This is an amazing option for casual catering for work or friends for any occasion. Would DEFINITELY use Evan again - highly recommend!

Emily arrived on time and Tony followed short after. They were both pleasant and professional. The food presentation was truly attractive and appetizing. Emily was particularly mindful of making sure that the meats were kept fresh prior to serving. Layout was organized with Tony even making sure to put away the desserts for later. All our guests were impressed with the food. Many raved about the brie in particular! The tiramisu and carrot cake were also favorites. The cheese with berries was amazing. The quiche looked a little overcooked but was actually not. We didn't get to taste everything but based on response from our guests, we think every dish was well-received. There were hardly any left-overs - mostly the vegetables and the cheeses. We were very impressed with DnL catering. We will definitely recommend to others and will consider for our next event.

Thank you DNL Catering! Our Holiday Event was perfect! We appreciated the added hands for switching out the trays and we have received so much feedback about the food being outstanding! We look forward to working with you in the near future. Happy Holidays to you and your staff! Thank you again!

Roddy was an amazing wedding day of coordinator. Very professional and knowledgeable. He made sure that everything went smoothly so I can enjoy my wedding day! He would go around and make sure that all of my guests had everything they needed and he even had the kitchen pack up left over wedding cake for me. He thought of every big and little detail.

Roddy and a cook helped with my daughter's wedding. They did an awesome job. Everyone raved about the perfectly cooked tri-tip and other foods. Rowdy stayed an extra hour to completely clean up the event as I had underestimated the time required.

Our company was just acquired and we had our celebration party at my home. I found Mary Ellen via Thumbtack and she exceeded my expectations. The food was awesome, the staff was a joy and the 50 employees, spouses and kids were thrilled. She accommodated a range of dietary needs, the staff jumped when we wanted to have the champagne toast to everyone and my kitchen was cleaner than when they arrived. I would highly recommend Mary Ellen for any event when your need a creative menu (loved the mango quesadillas appetizers and ahi tuna with miso butter sauce) to bring a wonderful meal and excellent service. I truly felt like a special guest in my own home.

Mary Ellen truly made me feel like my own guest at our anniversary party. The food was delicious and served with grace and style on my own serving platters. Her timing was just right so that no one felt rushed, but we kept to a prearranged schedule. The kitchen was spotless when she left. It was a great pleasure planning our event with Mary Ellen.

Ely is amazing!!! She worked with me on a custom menu and prepared meals for the week. I am very busy and don't have a lot of time to cook, but also enjoy a home-cooked meal. She came prepared with all the groceries necessary, cooked, packaged all the meals and cleaned up the kitchen. Her food is amazing, and on top of that, she's very fun to work with! I love her special surprise chicken dish. So grateful to have found her!

I absolutely recommend Kristine and her team. She met up with my husband and I at our venue about a month before our wedding. This was a several hour drive for her which we really appreciated. She took the time to go through every detail, not only about the catering component, but the entire wedding. She clearly has a great deal of experience in the business and we got a lot of great ideas and input from her. She also was very much our advocate when dealing with the difficult bar manager at our venue. The day of the wedding she and her team set everything up perfectly. Her staff was amazing. They were all so sweet and stayed to the very end of the night making sure everything was cleaned and finished. Again I completely recommend Kristine, our wedding was amazing and a huge success which she had a big part of!

I didn't end up going with this company, but not because they weren't amazing because they were. Kristine responded to my thumbtack request immediately and not only did she take the time to give her condolences for the loss of my grandmother but she was sweet and made the process easy. You could tell by her email to me that she actually read everything I said about my event because she addressed it all and I didn't have to ask but one question. I highly recommend using "In This Moment" for your catering needs. I know I will the next chance I have.

My client had a last minute corporate event and oddly requested Breakfast Burritos and Smoothies for their morning fare instead of the usual bagels, pastries, and coffee. After calling around and not getting any calls back from other catering places I found Kristine from This Moment. Thank God! They were responsive, professional, and provided our corporate meeting with the delicious start to the morning the client requested. Definitely will be calling Kristine again in the future!

Wow!! Just Wow!! Chef Judith Green catered our company holiday party last Friday and it was amazing. First, and very impressive, she showed up with an army of chefs and servers. They layed out two tables of bountiful delight! Cheeses, hummus, herbs from her garden. Whole Salmon, Asian sliders, veggies, and incredible desserts!! Our CEO was so impressed. She made me and our company look good. Not only will I hire her again, I plan to recommend her to everyone in need of a caterer. Thank you so much!!

GREAT SERVICE We got married yesterday and had to post a review immediately because Affordable Chef was so great! Chef Mark was punctual in replying to my questions before the big day, which, as an out-of-town bride, was very reassuring! At the last minute, Chef Mark was unable to attend the reception, but his on-site chef made delicious food, and the staff were phenomenal! There was one staff member in particular who took an interest in my Husband and I. She told us that we were her "celebrities for the day," made sure we ate appetizers before we walked in, escorted us to the buffet first, and was constantly checking on our drinks. She also took an interest in our families, leading many people to tell us how amazing she was! The bartender Chef Mark sent was also lovely, knew her stuff, and made our signature cocktails perfectly! All in all, a great experience and a company we would trust our next big event to!

I would never hesitate to recommend him Mark and his team recently catered my daughters wedding reception at our home in Capitola. From beginning to end his relaxed nature + excellent execution + delicious food enabled the guests as well as the hosts to make the event memorable and relaxed at the same time. His experience came in handy when planning the event and he took care of everything from start to finish. My wife and I have thrown many parties over the years and this was the first where we called out for help and it was well worth it. Thanks again to Mark and I would never hesitate to recommend him or call on him again.

good menu got to speak to the chef himself on several occasions, and he answered all my questions, a full service operation (can do plates and linens, etc) and nice menu selection with local organic food as a value of the caterer.

I have nothing but amazing things to say about Vanessa and her team. To start, I booked her super last minute (literally the day before I needed her). I was scrambling to pull together and offsite meeting that got moved 200 miles away due to the tragic fires happening in Northern California. Vanessa came to my aid by helping me brainstorm a fun, interactive activity for the team at their offsite remote location. She set up an amazing wine and whiskey tasting event that the team just loved! Everything was tailored to perfection! She event created customized wine glasses that each member of the team got to take home with them. To make matters more complex, the location where the event was happened to be located in a remote with limited (to no) resources to catering, grocery stores, etc. Did I mention that I was coordinating this entire event remotely ?!?! Vanessa stepped up and offered to not only provide an awesome team building event, but picked up dinner, plate it to perfection, and bartended for the reminder of the evening. This was phenomenal!!! Working with her was not only a joy, but easy and smooth. I can't wait to work with her again. You would be a fool not to book her 100x over!

Heather and Justin and their crew are excellent! The food were fantastic! Delicious! Can't find a word to describe how yummy the chicken bbq and tri-tip were. Everyone in our event loved the food. From start to finish, I never got worried about their work quality. Set up and clean up, very professional. I wish all those who read this will hire them to cater their event to truly experience what we had. I give them 10 stars if I may. These beautiful hard working young couple who owned the business are truly passionate of what they do. They love what they do and it shows thru their work. Funtastic quality of food. You will never go wrong. I am writing this review not because I'm a relative or an old friend of them. I am writing this because I have met two lovely couple who did a fantastic excellent job in our event at the Sheriff's Office. I'm already missing your chicken bbq!! Thank you Heather and Justin!! Until our next event!

Les Marguerites est magnifique! Sergio was responsive and came up with menu options in our price range that were outstanding, including options for kids with nut allergies. The food--from the rillettes and salade frisée aux lardons to thé chicken galantine was excellent, as good as any French restaurant I've had here or in France. The poached pear tart for desert is the best I've had. Les Marguerites offers great, personalized service with outstanding, simply delicious food!

Chef Nobuko from Mame Kitchen produced an amazing catering event for our party of 40 guests in our home. Chef Nobuko worked with our specific food requirements and she went out of her way to find the right ingredients and pairing of food for the night. The catering event was professionally staged with 3 professional staff and kitchen help. The event was precisely coordinated and timed from the guest welcome drinks to appetizers and then dinner and dessert. The event included a kids menu as well. My guest were so impressed with the food. Everything was made from scratch and with attention to details and presentation. We had a tremendously successful event and all guests were very appreciative of the effort made. Without hesitation, I will use Chef Nobuko and her company for our next home and corporate event.

Nobuko is a great chef! She put her heart and soul into making delicious and healthy food and you know from tasting her food. I'm very fortunate to have the experience to taste her cooking. My 2.5 year-old daughter is an extremely picky eater but she loved Nobuko's cooking! I've moved to a different state and I wish Nobuko can expand her business to other states. By the way, she can probably make a lot of profit by mass production of her meal box but she insisted on putting her special touches to each meal box to ensure tastiness and quality control.
