Marcel was amazing! It was a five star experience from the service he offered, to the food he cooked, to the time he took to prep for my event. We had two chefs at my event who were amazed and very impressed with his cooking! I highly recommend him!

Gourmet Lovers recently catered my son's wedding reception and everything turned out wonderfully! Carolina, Boris and their team took care of everything from start to finish and they didn't leave until the place was spotless. The food was amazing. My son and his bride didn't want "traditional" reception food so Chef Boris put together some of the tastiest tacos, beans, rice and salsa we have ever had, not to mention a fun interactive build your own Nacho Bar for the hors d'oeuvres that all the guests raved about. Not only was Chef Boris' food amazing, Carolina's wedding cake was something special. She worked with us to design just want the bride and groom wanted. The cake was rich in flavor and beautifully decorated. She certainly knows how to bake an amazing cake. I am a fan of Gourmet Lovers Catering and highly recommend them to anyone needing a caterer who not only knows how to put together great food, but knows how to work within your budget. Carolina was always prompt in returning calls and always stayed in touch with us. I plan on using them for all my catering needs in the future.

My husband and I hired Madkins catering for a family weekend in the desert (La Quinta). We requested a bbq for the first night, and an early Easter dinner for the second night. I expected the meals to be good but not great (I haven’t really had an excellent catering experience). However, the meals were OUTSTANDING. Chef Aviarie is truly talented, and our entire family and guests talked about the interesting flavors and quality of the food. I still can’t get over how Chef Aviarie and Frank prepared everything from scratch in our kitchen in just a few hours! We requested a hefty amount of dishes, and they pulled it off without a sweat! The team is incredibly kind, professional and a pleasure to have cooking in our kitchen. They even managed to entertain our 6 year old nephew while they were cooking. I should also note their rates are very reasonable! I can’t say enough good things about our experience. I am happy to serve as a personal reference in case anyone wants my feedback. Madkins Catering can provide my email address. OUTSTANDING JOB! We look forward to hiring you again in LA or in the desert!

Thank goodness for chefs like Mark who cook the way you want, and need, to eat when the last thing you want to do is cook for yourself when you're ill. I'm so greatful to have been introduced to him when I needed it the most. Mark is a great guy who cares about your healing. He's prepared the most healthy and delicious dishes. He'll work with you so that every dish delivered is what you like. And his selection is so broad that you won't eat the same thing again and again. Though some times you'll wish you did!

Chef Mark, Roy and Cagen did an amazing job at our wedding! Before Chef Mark came in to save the day, we had booked a chef, who five days before our wedding, told us he could not do the event due to some personal problem. By most measures, losing your chef 5 days before you say 'I do' would have been a disaster. Through Thumbtack, we found Chef Mark. Roy helped us to put together a new menu and Chef Mark made a wonderful meal for our guests. Everyone kept saying how good the food was. Chef Mark and Thumbtack literally saved our wedding. Thank you!

I love my cake!!! It was so beautiful and tasted so good. My only sadness is someone took the top of my cake that I wanted to save for my 1 year anniversary because it tasted so good. This cake was amazing!!! Look at the picture <3. I went to so many places in Los Angeles: Porto's, Susie's, Sweet Lady Jane, Ralph's,Whole Foods, Sam's Club. For taste, artistic quality, and value, Cassidy with Gourmet sugar service was the best! Thank you so much making my dream cake. <3

I hired Sierra Madre Catering for my husband's 40th birthday party held at my home. The set up process was so easy, they were so accommodating with the menu I wanted (even though it included fried foods and philly cheese steak sandwiches which are hard to make on-site). The moment they got to my house, Tonya and her chefs were so professional, speedy, on top of it all! They made my night so much easier and fun and I finally got to enjoy my own party for once! They left my house very neat like my kitchen was never used! They picked up after my guests throughout the night. My favorites were inside-out Philly cheese steak, pulled pork sliders, mac & cheese, potstickers and garlic fries. Thank you and looking forward to seeing you again!

So Devine Catering catered an engagement party for my daughter. I can't say enough how awesome they are. I had never hired a caterer before and was a bit out of my element. Chef Alexa was super cool and kind enough to walk me through the process, meet with me and really did an outstanding job. Chef Alexa and her entire team are just awesome. Everyone at our party was impressed. Just can't say enough great things!

My friends and I hired Segar LA for a private dinner at our home for the weekend while visiting Los Angeles. Our experience with Steven and the team exceeded our expectations!!! Steven's communication from the start was fantastic. We went back and forth a few times to tweak the menu and he always was very responsive when presenting different options for us to choose from. In our group, we have some with some dietary restrictions and Steven provided excellent choices for them as well. The food was exceptional! Everyone in the group was very impressed with the food and the service. Thanks for making our trip in LA a memorable one!!!

We hired Danesh for a party of 14. She put together a superb event. First, Daneen is a gem of a human being. She is wonderful to work with and makes everything easy. Second, she is an outstanding chef. The meal she prepared for my guests, including hors d'Oeuvres, mains, and desserts, was most delicious. The pairings were great, the tastes both subtle and bold. Third, Daneen has a great eye for making the plate look cookbook perfect. She is wonderful, and I cannot wait for the chance to hire her again.

Chef Shelley (Living Veg) did an amazing job cooking delicious vegan meals for our Hawaii Yoga Retreat. She explained each dish in detail, was very knowledgable about the foods, and incorporated heart and love into her cooking. I was highly impressed with her Ayurvedic meals and her spin on a Vegan Luau, and that she satiated the appetites of even our non-vegan retreaters. It was an absolute pleasure working with Living Veg and would highly recommend Chef Shelley as your private chef!!! She is wonderful!

Greg was everything I could have wanted in a personal dining chef! Such a warm personality, professional yet personal, and off the chart food. I could go on and on about the food combinations, the incredible taste, and presentation of a five star meal, made with love. You will not be disappointed with Greg: hands down, a one of a kind experience:))

I always look forward working at a Chef Wendell event. His expertise in culinary cuisine is beyond fabulous. Executing any menu along with any task given at hand is his specialty. He has such a way with food because I know he pours his heart into it. Can’t wait to work my next event with Chef Wendell!

We hired Chef Darrell David for a surprise welcoming party for my Mother. My mother is from South America so we challenged Darrell to make food that she would be familiar to and appreciate and Darrell did NOT disappoint. He came fully prepared and he did his homework! We didn't have to tell him what to make, he already knew what she would enjoy. It was a pleasant evening and once we were finished my mother asked him all sorts of questions on the food and Darrell answered every single one with perfect responses. We will definitely be hiring Darrell again in the future!

I cannot say enough great things about Amanda. (And neither could my guests once they tasted her food!) Even before the big day, she was so creative and engaging when designing the perfect menu for my event. She does it all- from appetizers to desserts and meat dishes to seafood to vegan options. The day of the event she was perfectly punctual and delightfully tidy. It makes such a difference when throwing a party to know that you have someone who you can trust, especially to handle such an important aspect (the food!), and Amanda was that person for me. I will never throw another party without her!

    My family and I are very much educated in the art of fine cuisine. We had some guest show up on a sudden stop over and none of us were in the right frame to go out. So, my wife and I decided to try thumbtack. We found Chef David and it was like hitting the lottery. He was punctual, professional and had a great view of exactly what we were needing. From his vendor contacts (for freshest ingredients), to the delivery of his meal everything was over the top and all were blown away. Most importantly we were able to really enjoy the company of our dear friends in a naturally comfortable environment, our home. I will say that although it wasn't on the cheap, it was so worth it that we have booked him again for our anniversary event next week for 30 with our closest friends. Chef Dave, Jessica and I are honored to have meet you and we will keep you on speed dial. And this reference is so easy to write. We will have you every week, when in town. Thanks again for the last minute reservation of your services. Matt H.
