This was an elegant dinner celebrating a recent marriage for seven people. It began with passed hot and cold hors d'oeuvres, cheeses and champagne, and continued with a dinner featuring a delicious beet borscht fsoup, a refreshing salad and a main course featuring fillet mignon and seared tuna. A white chocolate mousse with berries completed the sumptuous meal. Food preparation and presentation were excellent as was the cleanup.
We used Cazadores for our Startup Weekend. We reserved three meals: a lunch, and two dinners. The Indian buffet was delicious! It catered our vegan, vegetarian, and omnivore needs! Everyone raved about the Indian food! We also received a Mexican taco dinner. Similarly, Evan and his team grilled the meat and had hot tacos with all the fixings! There was even churros filled with caramel and vanilla custard! Bomb!!! Everyone also enjoyed the Chinese food. It was hard to resist!
Sat was the perfect Chef for my New Years Eve party. He was very responsive and great to work with planning the meal. He arrived right on time to begin prep and delivered a fantastic multi course evening. We choose a prime rib and a halibut option and both got rave reviews as did the hors d'oeuvres and appetizers. I'd highly recommend Chef Sat.
Debbie was absolutely outstanding. We hosted a dinner party for 12 people at our home and wanted to ensure it was a special experience for all. Debbie came up with a delicious and practical menu that was both delicious and took into account various dietary restrictions. She arrived early to prepare, was flexible to our timing when things started a little late, and ensured everything was tidy/clean before she left. In terms of food, everything was fantastic, but the Chicken Marbella and the Apple Crisp were especially delicious. Our guests left asking whether Debbie could help them with their next meal. We would highly recommend her :)!
I hired Sean for a dinner party for 4 at my apartment. He did an excellent and highly professional job from start to finish -- from sending me a sample menu tailored to my request (he also has excellent sample menus on his website) to coordinating the logistics to pulling off an elegant meal with flawless service in my home. It's clear that Sean is committed to delivering a high-quality experience to his clients. He had lots of great touches like taking care of serving drinks, explaining the dishes, and printing menus for the event. I highly recommend his services!
Trial dinner was wonderful. Hired for twice a week meal service. Flexible on schedule and accommodating of dietary needs. Thank you Grace!
I wanted to have a gorgeous dinner party for 30 of my colleagues at my home, and Graham and his staff made that happen. He took care of EVERYTHING - planned the meal, shopped, set a stunning table, brought perfectly paired wine and cooked and served everything. It was a seamless, lovely meal and we all felt like we'd been transported to an elegant yet relaxed restaurant. As the Host, it was a completely stress- free experience, and everyone is asking when we'll do it again...soon! Graham left everything spotless and everyone smiling. This guy can cook...and he's wonderful to have around. Two big thumbs up.
Daniella prepared a lovely meal for our team offsite. She took into account multiple dietary restrictions and created a delicious spread that included beverages, salad, sandwiches, sides, and incredible chocolate chip cookies (baked fresh that morning!). She was very easy-going and easy to communicate with.
Ania is easy to work with. She stays in contact through the entire process. She helps with menu suggestions or will follow your menu. She is able to accommodate special dietary requirements. She helps with wine pairing. She provides the rental plates and flatware. She provides quality ingredients. She and her staff arrive on time and prepare your meal on your time frame. They are attentive to all of your guests needs. All food was plated attractively and very tasty. They did a good job of cleaning up afterward, washing all of the glassware that I had rented as well as any of my personal equipment that they had used. My things were put away and dishwashers were loaded and running. The counters and sink were left clean. It was a good experience for our dinner party for 20.
John catered for our new year eve dinner party and he is an absolutely amazing chef and was a pleasure to have with us on New Year's Eve! He prepared a fantastic 4 course meal for our family and friends including the best beef Wellington I have ever had. And my dad is still raving about the Creme caramel and chocolate lava cakes that were for dessert! He also delt with a last min change in the menu like a pro to accommodate a few guests. I highly recommend john for any catering event you may have! thank you so much john and hope to work with you again soon :)
I've used Green Chow Down catering services on several occasions - from startup events to personal parties. The food and service is amazing - home meal quality, unique recipes, and Angela always goes an extra mile to make it a memorable experience. Highly recommend.
Rainbow Chefs were reliable, professional, and punctual. The entrees were truly impressive-- as good as top SF restaurants we have been to. The desserts and appetizers were also super tasty. The chef was really nice and easy to work with, and the person we spoke with to arrange everything was great as well. The price was reasonable for the services provided. Only reason we are not giving 5 stars is because the first dish, the salad, was super over-salted and pretty lackluster in ingredients. I was definitely worried that the rest of the meal would not be good, but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of everything else. All in all, I would definitely recommend them.
Tom cooked again this summer for a long weekend at our beach house. It was awesome. Crab feast one night and Kobe beef on Sunday. He is fun, creative and highly skilled. He did the shopping meal planning and cooking. Great value😎
James is super-responsive and easy to work with; and , best of all, his meals are delicious, convenient works of art.
We hired Farm to Table (Zachary Albright) to come to our house and prepare a meal for a birthday dinner for 14 people. The food was ABSOLUTELY amazing I wouldn't change a thing. The menu was extensive and the price was reasonable. I would suggest that he bring a helper as it was a little overwhelming for one person to prepare. I would highly recommend Farm to Table.
I hired Chef Dan for a corporate team dinner for 28 colleagues at a private venue in San Francisco. Dan is an absolute pleasure to work with. He is friendly, responsive, thoughtful, creative and detail oriented. Each step of the planning process went off without a hitch (menu selection, wine pairing advice) On the day/evening of our event, prep and service was smooth, and our meal was beautifully presented and delicious. Our team had an amazing time! I highly recommend Mise En Place & Dan!
Sophie is a natural- super talented and easy to work with. She made us a magical meal to celebrate my moms birthday. Food was beautiful and delicious. Service and pacing of the meal was perfect. Hope to find another occasion to work with her again.
Viet-Thu cares about the ingredients she picks and the food she creates, and it shows through her cooking. She gives you an ultimate culinary experience yet grounds you with flavors that are familiar. Her background in nutrition and cooking makes her an extremely capable and professional chef. She is punctual, organized, and accommodating. Hire her for your next event and she will listen to your every request and deliver the meal that goes beyond.
Chef Sacha has prepared meals for me on several occasions. Whether a special event or dinner party, he always takes great care to ensure that the ingredients used are in season, and of quality. He is understanding and willing to accommodate any food allergies or aversions, and provides options for those with specialty diets. His twist on French classics creates flavor combinations that are tasteful and surprising, while his take on American bistro fare elevates your childhood favorites. His meals are always delicious, and the presentation impeccable. I highly recommend Chef Sacha for any of your culinary needs.
Jacquie did a wonderful job. She was professional and easy to communicate with throughout the whole process (meal selection, serving, etc.). Most of all, the five course meal she served us was amazing...better than any restaurant! We will definitely use her again.
Ona is a very professional personal chef who gives a lot of options in meal planning and then she works her magic and delivers a mouth-watering meal with several courses. A recent favorite we had was kimchi pancake as an appetizer, garden salad, and our main entree was grilled salmon with a grilled avocado half on the side. The roasted tomato and herb purée on top was to die for. It just enhanced all the flavors in the entree.
