I hadn't used thumbtack before when I inquired via a Google search, about finding a good caterer/chef. After receiving numerous responses, I checked out 3 and asked for proposals. As soon as I heard Chef Marcel's voice, I sensed his sincerity and eagerness to please and I appreciated his warmth during our business conversation. While I wasn't able to make a decision right away due to an extensive business trip abroad, I told him I would call him upon my return to the U.S. When I returned, I told him that he was competing against another caterer and he simply said "what will it take to gain your business" and I instantly knew he was the person I wanted. I told him that I would first need to taste his food before a final decision was made and he invited me to his home where inner his lovely wife a baby girl. After tasting his delicious food, I told him he had the job and 2 others, all within a month's time period. Chef Marcel aims to please and my events have all turned out beautiful with delicious food and caring service. Relationships and trust are very important to me and chef Marcel along with his wife, are now a relationship that I truly value. I will continue to use his services for the many future events that I've planned while enjoying the additional benefits of working with a "friend". Give him a call and I'm confident you will choose no other.

I needed a caterer for my dad's funeral reception. Spoke to other caterers but Carolina of Gourmet Lover's Catering was the only one who gave her condolences, this meant a lot to me. The full service presentation was tasteful, the food delicious and reasonably priced. There were no exta added on fees like the other caterers. I highly recommend Gourmet Lover's Catering, Boris & Carolina are a wonderful team and you will not be disappointed.

I have been to The Carnival Truck. Not only is their food fun, creative, and innovative, it's delicious too! I really enjoyed the walking tacos and fried pickles. The burger with a grilled cheese as the bun was amazing. Like any good business, they keep thinking of new ways to define themselves. I haven't had a chance to try the new items that have been added, but can't wait until I do. This is an excellent family oriented business who is friendly and cares about what customers want. It's not often that I'm impressed by both content and customer service, but with The Carnival Truck I am!!

I hired Chef Shawna to cater a morning after the wedding brunch at our home for between 60-70 guests. She took into account all of my considerations for food and designed a creative and comprehensive menu. I also hired her to come to our home a month before the wedding and prepare brunch for the bride, groom, mother of the bride my husband and myself. It was a beautiful sampling of what we can expect on the day of the event. It was a big help to have her come beforehand as we planned how the buffet would be positioned and went over all of the details for the service, from start to finish. The post wedding brunch won’t happen until July, 1st 2018. I will write again and post photographs after the wedding. Hiring Chef Shawna was my first experience using Thumbtack and I am so impressed with the service as it saved a lot of time. I had complete confidence in the process of vetting and hiring someone to make our post wedding brunch special for my step son and soon to be daughter in law. Thank you Thumbtack and Best Mobile Chef!

Chef Mark was an amazing find! We needed a chef in a pinch for an event of 50. He jumped right in and augmented the groceries we already had with creative twists that really wowed our guests. Every bite was delicious and everyone enjoyed their meals. He even made a special separate menu for our vegan guests. He was also very congenial and engaged our guests who wanted to participate in the cooking process. Overall, his joyful demeanor and love of cooking on top of his bad ass cooking skills made our event so much better that we could have hoped for. Thank you Chef Mark!

Chef Mumsie and team are the best caterers I have ever worked with...everyone at the event raved about the food...staff was professional and efficient. Chef Renee presented the food and we all began to immediately drool over her signature items. She created unique flavors and items that we had never seen before and couldn't wait to try. OOOHHHHH and when we did!! I can't recall when i've tasted things that just made me want to close my eyes and dance... MMMMMM Mmmmm mmmmm. They took care of everything with magnificent precision. Arrived early, set it all up without a word and fed 80 picky ladies to perfection. The price was very reasonable...you cannot get this caliber of service excellence for this price anywhere. They even helped me select the venue based on what I was looking for since they were familiar with all the best sites. The venue needed no Insurance documentation because of their great experiences in working with Chef Mumsie and her team. If I could I would give them 7 stars and it still would not be enough!!!! If you want OUTSTANDING food and FABULOUS customer service then you're here. . . they will take care of everything without missing a beat and leave you and your guests with very happy palates with delicious food. THANK YOU ladies for the BEST High-Tea we've ever had!!!! We wil definitely be hiring again for our needs !!! Kisses

Chef Carolina and her team were great. Everything was confirmed and she arrived right on time. Set up was really quick and easy. She worked around the budget and supplied everything we needed. The food was amazing. I ordered breakfast and the breakfast was so tasty. We had a variety of items. It wasn't the normal, boring scrambled eggs and bacon. We was very creative in her breakfast options. Egg white omelettes Mush omelettes Quiches Breakfast burritos Vegetable and potatoes Fresh Fruit Muffins and Bagels Coffee I would definitely be using her again. I can't wait to see her lunch menu.

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!

Chef Pena did an excellent job preparing the meal and educating all 9 guests on proper food preparation, seasonings and his journey through the culinary arts. I was very impressed with the meal (Seared Wild Alaskan Salmon w/ crab stuffed yukon gold mashed potatoes and green bean/ red bell pepper medley. The meal was finished off with a cherry/chocolate cookie pie thing (whatever it was, it was Awesome ). Wonderful dinner party experience. I will definitely request again!

Jordan is an excellent chef and caterer. He produces food that is way beyond the standard catering services. If you want cookie cutter catering go with someone else. If you want really great food at a great price stop on by or use his catering.

The food was my style! I was very pleased. It was my first time using a caterer at home and I would definitely hire Super Foods again. My guests were very pleased and impressed with the healthy and gluten free options. They especially liked the butternut squash soup. The fig pie was a hit with the guests but a bit sweet for me but I like that it was Gluten Free! They liked the salads and sandwiches. They preferred the toasted sandwiches over the cold sandwiches as did I. A bit too much cranberry on the turkey sandwich which made the bread soggy. Minor details. The cocktails were not quite right and most guests did not care much for them. The servers were great and accommodating. They could be a bit more aware of guests needs but when asked they were very helpful.

We have used Chef Mikey for both meal prep and catering. He is truly a gem. The meals he has prepped are flavorful, good variety and perfectly portioned. The last party Chef Mikey catered for us, he made jerk chicken wings that people couldn’t stop talking about. I’m craving them right now! I would highly recommend him for meal prep, private dinner parties or catering!
