Meal was amazing; we asked for a 100% vegetarian meal and all of the courses were fantastic; he really knows how to prepare vegetarian food. Sat was engaging and professional and the service and food were outstanding. We understand why he was voted best personal chef of Thumbtack - we would definitely hire Sat again!

This was my first experience ordering catering service so I wasn't sure what to expect. Debbie did a great job for our group. The food was delicious and plentiful. Debbie worked with some special criteria to make the deliveries to us but was on time and well prepared. Thank you Debbie for the great food and all your hard work!

I can't say enough about Andrea's catering service. Food was not only DELICIOUS it was unique. A feast of spicy flavors. Each dish was well prepared--cooked to perfection. Andrea was very easy to communicate with. Very patient even through my busy event preparation stage. She arrived on time on each of our meetings, returned every phone call or email. Most importantly, she easily set up all our food for our garden party in very timely fashion. I'll definitely use Andrea again and highly recommend her for all catering events!!

Deb makes the most amazing quiche and is such a pleasure to work with. I worked with her when she prepared quiches for our Christmas party at our home. She takes such pride in her quiches and her full service catering and has developed this into an outstanding business. I would recommend her to cater your next event and assure anyone that she delivers the best quiches and excellent services along with her great smiles and laughs.

I've known Grace for many years. I have been over to her house for home cooked meals that were truly gourmet, and delicious. She also prepared some food and sold it from her home. On the level of catering for large parties, I went to our friend Dave's party last month were Grace did the catering. The food was flawless, delicious, with great presentation, and great variety. I strongly recommend Grace for catering your events.

From the point of connecting with Daniella about my dinner party, to meeting with her in person beforehand to discuss menu and pricing, and on to the event itself, there was never a time I didn't feel confident in her experience and her ability to pull off a fantastic Greek dinner for my friend's 60th birthday. And that she did! My friends are still raving about her and I could not have been more pleased with every single detail. Food was fabulous! I highly recommend Daniella for any catering needs or for cooking for a private party. She handles it all. Wish I could have her cook for me on a regular basis!

Rose Johnson Catering was my party partner for our son’s engagement celebration last weekend in Orinda. The party was a huge success, and Rose and her team deserve much credit for the success. Rose responded to my Thumbtack inquiry with a prompt, thorough, and reasonable bid. However, after viewing her beautiful website, I replied to Rose that while I personally thought her menus were perfection, my son had specified that he did not want the food for his party to be “too fancy.” I told Rose the party would be a casual afternoon affair on our deck and I feared her culinary talents would be wasted on my son and my husband. Rose persevered, pointing out in her reply that she could do a barbecue with a southwestern flavor. The food need not be "fancy," she observed, but it should be tasty. And she sent me a custom menu that my son, his fiancée, my sisters, my husband and I all proclaimed perfect, including seared medium rare tri-tip of beef with chimichurri sauce, grilled cilantro chicken with tortillas, chipotle laced potato salad, and Mexican rice, bean, and corn salad. But Rose did not stop with sending me the menu; she said she would use my kitchen and grill on my deck, ensuring the food would be fresh as well as tasty. And after I hired her, she came to my home to check out my kitchen, my deck, and my grill and advised me on renting and setting up dining rounds and serving tables, as well as how to ensure good traffic flow for 50 guests. Rose is a real party expert, and I am not, so her advice was very much appreciated. The day of the party, Rose, Floricel and Esteban arrived a full two hours early and took charge. I hired Rose Johnson Catering for the food, which they delivered beautifully. As it turned out, they helped with the entire party, going above and beyond in many instances and showing poise and flexibility in the face of surprises, like my son’s decision to give a speech and set off a round of champagne toasts before dessert. Rose poured the champagne herself. Several guests asked me during the party: Who catered this? Who is your caterer? I happily provided several referrals to Rose Johnson Catering. Guest comments about the food were very positive: Mike: “The tri-tip was great.” Helen: “The grilled chicken was fabulous.” Kay: “I loved the potato salad. And the guacamole was wonderful.” Liz: “So nice to have so many dishes gluten-free.” Cindy: “The brownies were amazing. I told them so.” Bill: “Those parfaits were a big hit.” Matt: “Great food! Great service!” There was plenty of food for 50 guests, even with 1/3 of them being hungry 20-something friends of my son’s from high school and college. We even had leftovers, which Rose packed up and left in my refrigerator, along with leaving my kitchen cleaner than she found it. My husband, son, future daughter-in-law and I made a brunch of the leftovers the next day, sharing the delicious food and happy memories of a wonderful party. Best of all, this was the first party I’ve ever hosted where I had a great time myself. I don’t think I’ll have another big party again without booking Rose Johnson Catering!

Don't look any further: LL Services is the BEST! They catered a women's luncheon in my home, and I found their friendly manner, professionalism and responsiveness to be unmatched. They offered flexible menu options with fresh, creative and delicious selections. My guests went back not only for seconds, but thirds, and they all left with a business card for their own catering needs. Don't pass up the opportunity to have them cater your next event.

Chef Anicette was absolutely fantastic! She created a unique and delicious menu for an in-home party using many of her original recipes which included pizettas, salad, crab fettuccine, chicken Parmesan and bananas foster. She was exceptionally responsive to all my requests and kept in close contact throughout the planning process. Her rates were much better than I had anticipated they would be and were worth every penny. Everyone at our party agreed that it was one of the best meals they had ever enjoyed. Chef Anicette has superb training and amazing talent. I will definitely be using her services in the future and have already suggested her to other friends and family members who are searching for catering services. 10/10 recommendation!

Basic Catering is much more than catering company, it is a full service event company. Aristotle says "if a man does many things, they cannot do one thing well." That's not the case with Basic Catering. I hired them for a small wedding reception, and I was very impressed with their service. I'll list them as follows: 1. All my guests raved about the food. It was perfectly cooked and the quantity was worth the value. 2. They rent out their own party rentals (tables, silverware, plates, etc.) at a cost cheaper than the competitors. This was significant savings for me with no sacrifice on the quality. This also made clean-up a lot easier. I was not worried about the clean-up, but it did save me on venue costs. (They also do flowers) 3. Lastly, the most impressive aspect of Basic Catering is their professionalism. There will always be something missing or something that goes wrong. Their team is extremely resourceful, from their planners (Ben) to the people executing (Carie) and the waitstaff -- I am a big fan of resourcefulness. They thought of things I missed, and if something was wrong they made it right. They are quick and smart, and know how to get things done. They assisted in making one of the most significant days of my life a wonderful event. Thanks Ben. You did a fantastic job coordinating.

A first class experience without a doubt! I knew my family and I were in for a real treat from the beginning. Niko bent over backwards to tailor each dish according to various requests and allergies and more than delivered on it. I went with the crowd favorites, but I GUARANTEE you there isn't a wrong move possible when solidifying your menu choices. I can't say enough about the quality of food (all organic, fresh, and hand crafted), the presentation, and mixture of textures with each dish. Niko is truly a master at creating a healthy, delicious, and enjoyable meal. In addition, she was such a delight to have in our house and has such a warm, welcoming vibe. I can't recommend her cooking services enough...now off to hiring her for meal prep services!
