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
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!
I cannot begin to describe Stephanie without using the word "unbelievable." As part of our wedding day, I could not have imagined the food and catering going more smoothly. From the initial bid process, communication prior to the wedding, and meeting up to get familiar with the site, Stephanie was responsive, kind, and flexible. She listened and modified her menu according to changing needs, and wow we were pleased. Our menu had three food options (vegan, chicken, and tri-tip) and all were 100% incredible. She had the food timed to perfection, and presented beautifully. Our guests could not believe the quality of the food, especially given that she fed 73 people entirely on her own. So many of our guests were coming up to us to describe how amazing the food was!! We would recommend Stephanie to ANYONE who needs caterer. We were incredibly beyond happy and pleased with her work. She made our day all the more special as we did not have to worry about a thing from set-up to clean-up. You would be silly not to hire her for your catering needs.
We received excellent service from A Plus Catering. The food arrived on time, was tasty, and everything went as planned. I would recommend them for any event. Very professional, friendly and affordable.
Debbie provided exceptional service for our wedding. She was super easy to work with, very accommodating and gracious on a stressful day, even with last minute changes! I can't say enough good things about Made with Love catering! She made our wedding. The food was delicious, courses were perfectly paced and when she left, the kitchen looked better than when she came! I wish she could cook for me every night :) Hiring Debbie was one of the best decisions we made when planning our big day!
I hired Tres Senoritas Gourmet to cater a 100 person cocktail/networking event. They were very accommodating and flexible to meet my needs. As a first time organizer, I found their flexibility and advice to be very helpful. The food that got the best response was the guacamole and Tinga De Pollo. The Ceviche and Albondigas faced some harsher reviews from the toughest foodies in the crowd, but overall everyone was quite happy with all the food and bar service. I did wish they circulated the food more but that may have been due to lack of direction on my part. The bar service was great.
We planned a brunch buffet for 20-30 people to celebrate my daughter's college graduation. Thumbtack and ezcater had some suggestions, but Quiche and Carry jumped out as a perfect option -- local fresh ingredients, tasty quiche and salad options etc. Deborah responded to my quote request quickly, and came up with a menu that fed the most people for my budget. Food delivery came on time. The quiches and the zucchini bread especially were a huge hit (try the corn quiche, it is divine!). I'd use QuichandCarry again for catering without hesitation.
Celebrations by Chet Chase is a first class catering company. The food is delicious and elegantly prepared. Chet is wonderful and charming. I wholeheartedly recommend Celebrations by Chet!
Best experience ever! I hosted my daughter's first birthday party and hired Kitchenina for the catering. The owners, Kostas and Aliki are professionals, very polite and will go out of their way to service you. They came on time for the party. The food was warm and delicious. I was raised in Greece and their Giant Mediterranean spicy beans are the best I have ever tasted:) The lamb roast, the tacos, the rice bowls and all the dishes we ordered are extremely tasty. I love they offer a variety of quality food from different cuisines and that it tastes home made. I would definitely recommend them and hire them again.
This was our first time having a chef for a house party with ~15 guests, and I highly recommend Graceful Kitchen! Chef Grace was able to accommodate our request for vegetarian food, and presented us with several good choices. She was there ahead of time, and the food, esp. the pasta, received good feedback from everyone that attended. I will use Graceful Kitchen again for future events.
Dani's catering is delicious. It reminds me of a home cooked meal every time!
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!
This caterer prepared lunch for 30 people on Memorial Day for us. We found them on Thumbtack and we’re glad we went with them! Everything was as expected or better! First of all, their smoked ribs were AMAZING. Everything else (chicken skewers-very tender, deviled eggs with smoked bacon, garlic and honey meatballs, grilled corn, vegan pasta salad, arugula salad) was delicious as well. Everyone should add their Bourbon Banana Pudding for dessert, because it was so good! I love Paul Martin's banana cream pie, but this pudding was even better! I would definitely go back to them again. Too bad I forgot to take some photos!! And yes, they are very professional. Just tell Matt what you are looking for and he'll come up with a menu for you. Easy!
Angela was so great in accommodating my last minute birthday party. We needed a mixed menu of vegetarian, meat, nut-free, and gluten free. The menu was fabulous- flavorful stuffed chicken, veggie dumplings with marinara sauce (omg), and out of this world ice cream cake (who would've ever known it was gluten free!). Another thing is she didn't just drop off the food- she helped us serve it. We loved the personal service and attention to detail! 👍🏻👍🏻. Definitely hiring her again!
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.
Oh my goodness, I was so, so impressed with Cheri's cooking. I've never, and I mean never, tasted a turkey that was as tender and flavorful as hers. I'm getting hungry right now just thinking of it. She catered our holiday party, and the depth and delight of all her amazing dishes tantalized all the guests. All her dishes we're cooked and baked to perfection. She's a genius in the kitechen, with a down-home, nurturing spirit to boot. I highly recommend Cheri for any catering event you're planning in the future. Your guest will rave that it's the best catered food they've ever had.
Eileen was a pleasure to work with? The food was delicious, and everyone was extremely pleased. She was prompt, friendly and professional. We will definitely use her services again. Thanks Eileen!!
We had a very large action sports event come to San Francisco and I was in charge of hiring and scheduling a caterer. After reaching out to 5-6 different companies, I decided Gimanelli's Catering would be the perfect fit. They were extremely easy to work with and to get ahold of, she was responsive when I requested changes to the menus, and was able to work with my budget. On one day I think we scheduled up to seven meal services in different locations. When the actual event happened we used Gimanelli's for 5 days of back-to-back service. You can't go wrong with them from your large corporate event to a small family get-to-gether - I would definitely use them again in the future.
Excellent service Excellent performance i would recommend anyone to order from Bacsic catering. Thank for a really great job
Nikolitsa's food is SO delicious! I have yet to try anything Nikolitsa has made that I haven't loved. She cooks up some of the best vegan food I have ever tasted and I have been vegetarian or vegan for over 20 years. Nikolitsa is professional and personable and keeps her menu constantly changing with amazing new recipes. This is the kind of food that could turn meat eaters into vegans; everyone I recommend Nikolitsa's food to loves it.
