Mike did an amazing job catering my wedding for a very affordable price. He provided the food, bartenders & Italian water jugs for my guest. He prepared more than enough for my buffet style wedding and my guest were very satisfied. Mike is very easy to work with and made planning my wedding in 3 months less stressful.
We hired Gourmet Lovers Catering for our wedding that was on July 23, 2016, honestly nothing but AMAZING!!!. From the very first contact till the very day of the event, everything went smoothly, everyone was on top of everything and Carolina and Boris were always attentive and making sure that we were worried free for our special day. When we first contacted Gourmet Lovers Catering, Carolina was very quick to respond and be at our services in any way possible. Both Carolina and Boris are so very down to earth, sweet and beyond helpful. With Carolina's great customer service, we knew that we definitely had to set up a food tasting in which I still remember her exact words were "come hungry" and let me tell everyone who is reading this that she is not kidding!! :). The food trial was very, very impressive. Personally I am a person who admires presentations and if I do not see quality presentations it is a turnoff but Gourmet Lovers blew us away!!! One of the best presentations and food tastings that we had experienced when trying to find catering for our wedding. Both Carolina and Boris were very welcoming, so welcoming that we pretty much felt like family. The presentation was beautiful for being just a tasting they went above and beyond. The quality, freshness and taste of the food was beyond words, all the food that was tasted literally melted in your mouth. Everything that was tasted was delicious. We ended up choosing the Marsala Chicken. After the tasting, Carolina was constantly available all the time in case anything changed or any questions needed to be answered. Just everything was great, it was perfect. The day of our wedding, all of our guests loved the food that guests were going back for seconds. Their staff was amazing. During the whole night, we had a personal server attending to our every need (I apologize but we do not remember his name but he was super sweet and beyond helpful, Carolina and Boris if you can remember the gentleman please tell him a big thank you from us). Once again, everything was awesome. Carolina and Boris are very passionate about what they do and it shows within their service and work. From the bottom of our hearts, we want to say thank you, thank you, a million times thank you for catering our wedding. Carolina and Boris, you guys are amazing and we simply adore you. Thank you for making our wedding worry free and delicious!!!
I hired Jose for my wedding. His food was excellent and he was so professional at the tasting that we went to. Jose was very responsive and helpful with all of my questions/concerns over several months while I was planning my wedding. The caterer at a wedding has a huge job, and for my wedding day I felt like everything went so smoothly. His staff were so professional, friendly and dedicated to making all of our guests happy. He showed up on time and set up everything flawlessly and exactly as we had talked about. I am so happy that I found Jose for my wedding! I would highly recommend him and his staff for any event! Not only is it important to have a caterer that makes good food, but also have someone who cares about his clients and wants to provide the very best customer service and from my experience Jose did exactly this. He went above and beyond and we couldn't have been happier! Thank you Jose!
Service was amazing. The staff was extremely professional and pleasant. The food was wonderful with large plated portions. We had 200 guests at our wedding, the servers were fast and efficient. The food arrived hot, staff showed up early in advance for set up as planned. Great times, great food.... Will hire again.
Best experience ever. She was awesome. Cooked dinner for my wife and I and our 4 young kids. Prime rib lobster scallops!!! Unreal. Would hire her everyday if I could.
Excellent job by Susan and her staff to cater my wedding reception with over 150 guests. Susan was very patient during food selection process. She made sure all bases were covered on my day, and the food was amazing. My guests are still singing here praises. Kudos Susan and the Wild Thyme Team!!!
In the past five years my husband and I have attended several fantastic entertainment and charitable fundraisers produce by The Mark Kearney Group. Our memorable highlights include The Jewel's of France in Beverly Hills for Juvenile Arthritis hosted by Teri Hatcher , MKG Emmy suite for breast cancer hosted by Adrienne Malouff, Project Angel Food hosted by Lisa Vanderpump. I hired Chef Mark and his fabulous catering company for our wedding this April in Newport Coast California. We absolutely adore his five star Pacific Rim cuisine. The catering crew was professional, kind and captivating. It truly made our Wedding Day special.
I highly recommend Chef Mumsie for a wedding that needs catering or for any event that involves great food and wonderful service. It is hard to describe the quality of good food other than to say that it was delicious and all the guests were raving about it. Appetizers included incredible onion pastry puffs that were the talk of more than one conversation I had that night. Salad was also a big hit, not something one usually expects to say about salad. The entree was talked, posted, and blogged about. Beautiful flatware and table settings were used, and the service was light-footed, courteous, and professional. We felt we were in a 5-star hotel, not our own backyard (which is where we actually were). Aside from all this, I want to mention how impressed we were with the hard work that was so evident. Chef Mumsie's staff was present from 2pm on toward 11pm and never stopped moving for a second. We were promised that we would not have to worry about a single event during the day and that was exactly what happened. Without even realizing that we had left so much in the hands of our caterers, we passed the night catching up with old friends, connecting people, taking photos, and meeting each other's friends from far off -- never once did we have to stop to check up on any details of any kind. Chef Mumsie seemed to be in eight places at once at any moment, and everything took care of itself as if by magic. There were no hidden charges, unexpected twists, or demands for attention. We are very impressed and grateful for their efforts in feeding and satisfying 80+ people in a somewhat confined space -- done with grace, speed, and invisibility. .. and deliciousness!
Great communication, returned phone calls quickly. Arrived on time ,set up and service was great! Most important food was awesome! thanks Jesse, would recommend to anyone. We had a large group, (wedding with 250 guests!) All went well!! Thanks again!.
I decided to look for a caterer for my Mom's celebration of life and my internet search lead me to Thumbtack. After inputting my needs I quickly received a response back from Tonya at Sierra Madre Catering with a detailed quote and attached menu. When I called to speak with Tonya I immediately got a good vibe from her voice. She seemed excited and eager to help plan our event and made me feel comfortable that everything would be taken care of. I am so thankful I decided to use Sierra Madre for my event. We ordered appetizers and desserts and they arrived and set everything up, brought their own trash cans and kept the tables clean as people were done eating. The staff was professional and nice and their food was DELICIOUS! Many of our guests gave feedback that the food was great and they even ran out of business cards because a lot of people were interested in having their info. At such a difficult time with the passing of a loved one, these details are important but not ones you want to worry about yourselves and Tonya and Sierra Madre staff took that burden off my shoulders and I am so thankful for that. I will recommend them to anyone in need of a caterer for any event and if I could give more than 5 stars I most definitely would!! Thank you Tonya and Sierra Madre Catering!!
I used Aioli for my wedding rehearsal lunch/picnic and it was great! They delivered on time and the food was amazing. Thank you guys for your high quality food & service. Highly recommended :)
One Hot Dish catered my wedding in at Camp Wrightwood and went above and beyond my expectations. We chose their BBQ menu and it was phenomenal. Every guest complimented the food (especially the Texas Egg Rolls and Mac n Cheese). Michelle was amazing as well. She was at the site early, communicated with me frequently and was just such a major blessing. She helped create a low stress environment and handled everything with professionalism and finesse. I would HIGHLY recommend One Hot Dish catering!!!
Our plans to have our wedding meal prepared by our favorite restaurant fell thru 3 weeks before our wedding. I knew Christine Mcmaster as an excellent cook and had been to 2 private dinners catered by her. Quite anxious, I called her and she put me at ease with her assurances and suggestions to take my time and figure out what we would really like. Great advice! We chose Mediterranean food. Together with Chris we quickly settled on a menu. There were so many details but she handled it all from overseeing the table setting, shopping, deliveries and arranging table display. It was amazing I actually could relax. The meal was sumptuous elegantly prepared and plated all by Chris and her kitchen staff. Our dinner menu was: A simple greek salad, hummus, tzatziki, baba ganoush, roasted vegetables, flat bread Then Shawarma lamb, roasted chickens, and feta rice w/ pistachios. There were 35 people at the wedding meal and all the courses were on time and beautifully plated. The kitchen was quiet and when I went in everyone was smiling and extremely busy. Chris ran the kitchen in a quiet organized way that was contagious to all who worked there. Truly an amazing woman. Her sense of elegance shined thru both in the delicious food and its presentation. My husband and I will have lasting memories of Christine and how she stepped in and played an integral part in helping create our dream wedding. I highly recommend you have her cater any function. All you have to do is relax and enjoy it.
Joanna was simply amazing!!! Not only were her drinks out of this world good, but her work ethic and personality matched perfectly!!! I'm so glad I found an awesome and genuine bartender who will most definitely be back at every birthday,wedding,graduation party I host!
I left this review on the Knot.com and thought I would repeat this here. We loved having Feast as our caterer for our wedding and highly recommend them. "For our wedding we were connected with Marcus and Feast Catering through a good friend who used to work at the Annenberg Beach House. What a great recommendation! Marcus sat down with us and was flexible in working with our budget. We really appreciated this. We were able to do a tasting with him, and Marcus was very receptive to feedback. We asked for an Asian influence for the menu and Marcus and his team pulled it off beautifully and creatively. The food was delicious. They arranged a beautiful beet salad that looked great in all the photos. We had soju coconut cocktails. The wines were good too. My niece said it was her favorite wedding food ever - Marcus was so kind to ask if we wanted a special meal for the few children that were attending. They had mac n' cheese, chicken nuggets - their favorites! Marcus managed his staff well, too. They decorated the tables nicely with the linens and Feast arranged the heat lamps and all the rentals for us. All of the staff were courteous and friendly - great service. Feast assigned a special person to look out for us as the bride and groom and make sure that we had all that we wanted - seconds on the buffet, an extra piece of wedding cake, another cocktail, anything. Thank you so much, Marcus!"
Fitch's Kitchen catered my wedding at the Wedding Tree in Point Fermin Park in San Pedro, CA. The food was delicious, it was delivered on time, and Fitch was very understanding about a hiccup with my payment method and delivered food anyway, making sure my day wasn't ruined by an oversight (that was my own doing). I had several guests comment on the food and ask where it was from. THANK YOU!!!
We asked our friends and family members who had recently been married what they thought the most important part of the wedding was, and they unanimously said "THE FOOD". From the moment we requested a quote Bill's attention to detail made it a wonderful and memorable experience. We were provided with and absolutely delicious lunch at our tasting; where Bill customized our menu to fit our unique wedding theme. The staff was friendly, informative, professional and genuinely warm and kind. Bill's help however moved beyond his fabulous food. For any and EVERY coordination mishap, he was there with creative and inventive solutions. His staff went above and beyond, even assisting in set up and decoration. We were truly overwhelmed by their generosity and their willingness to be of assistance. On our wedding day, as we ran from the car to the venue to avoid the terrible storm; we were greeted by Bill with a mini buffet for the bridal party so that we would have a chance to actually eat at our wedding. To say the food was amazing is an understatement. I cannot describe how delicious it was or how beautifully and artfully arranged. I truly cannot do it justice. When asked, our guest said that hands down, it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Our menu included custom flank steak sliders with asian slaw, a variety of sushi, mini ribs, chicken skewers, grilled vegetable stuffed crepes, procuitto wrapped asparagus, endive spoons filled with tabouleh, chicken sate, and so much more. The service was impeccable and after everything was done, the staff cleaned and left everything immaculate. Most importantly, Bill was sensitive and understanding of our situation. You see , we were two brides. Bill and his staff were shining examples of what it is to treat everyone with equality and dignity and respect. We were afraid of vendors not wanting to work with us and Bill took all that anxiety away. Through his vast network he found amazing and supportive vendors who were ready to celebrate with us and were empowered by our decision to get married. We cannot thank Bill enough for the many kindnesses he bestowed on us and we cannot wait to eat at his amazing restaurant again. - C & A

I am thrilled to share with you my experience with Chef LaTay. First it must said, her food is AMAZING. In Jan 2015, I married the love of my life; I had a small backyard wedding of about 75 ppl total and Chef LaTay catered the food for my special day. We decided to go with Tri-Tip Roast, Fully loaded mashed potatoes, Green Beans, and Salad. Her food was a hit. Delicious and memorable. My guests were happily fed and pleased with every bite and so was I. In the past, Chef LaTay would do weekly orders every Friday and Saturdays where she would deliver her meals to those local near her. It was a huge meal that came with dessert and a drink, worth the price indeed. That’s where/when I would also have some of her other delicious foods. My personal favorites are her Macaroni and Cheese, her Salmon, her Enchiladas, her Chicken (every way she makes it), and her Oxtail. She also makes wonderful tasty desserts. Her cakes are all homemade and are to die for. I love her Chocolate cake and her frostings are the best! Better than any other cakes I’ve had. And I can’t forget the dessert my husband and I always ask for throughout the year, Banana Pudding! Again, AMAZING! It is an honor to have Chef LaTay’s food be a part of my life. Every delicious bite makes you wish there was no such thing as getting full. Having her for your events or for a small special occasion, you won’t be disappointed. Chef LaTay is very creative with her food and service. She comes with class and excellent customer service. She makes sure you get what you asked for; just very professional with a welcoming loving spirit. Chef LaTay It’s Made Devine is worth your time to try her food, because I guarantee you, you’ll be asking for more!
Esther helped us for our wedding in July 25th and she did a wonderful work. She made me the bride boutique even without the request. The flowers and the decoration are extremely pretty and I loved it so much. She really did a lot of wonderful works and helped us had a beautiful wedding. I would highly recommend her to be your planner. Thank you Esther!!!
Went to a wedding where Estreno catered this weekend. The food was great. Recommend to anyone.
