My girlfriend and I hosted a party for 25 guests downtown. We decided to have the party catered and we went to Thumback.com to seek help. We put in a request for American and Middle Eastern cuisine and Lilian Gaffney (AKA Busy Bee) was the only one who responded to our add. She quickly responded via email and we even had several phone conversations with her as we tweaked the menu to our wants. The day of the part she showed up on time and laid out the best spread of Middle Easter and American food we could have hoped for. Really - we were surprised at the quality she gave us. Food tasted great but also the presentation was on point. She makes the best baklava I’ve tasted but more importantly our guest loved them and fished off all the food. I do recommend Lilian and I will seek her expertise out for future parties. Cheers, ~Franklin

I'm the West Coast Manager of the Warrior Support Team, an outreach program of MarineParents.com. We serve dinner to the Wounded Warrior Batallion at the Naval Medical Center, San Diego every Thursday. Because this is a military base, caterers are sometimes reluctant to follow the procedures necessary to get through the security gate and deliver the food. June and Gary not only were willing to deliver the food, but did so on time, which is critical for us. The food itself was excellently prepared and flavorful. I look forward to working with June Sper Catering on a regular basis.

Everything went off like clockwork. A true professional. This was a party for 40, and Shawna made brisket, turkey, a few side salads, grilled asparagus, and lemon cupcakes. Everything was a hit. In hindsight the only thing I would have adjusted was adding additional brisket. We ran out of meat and while the count was for 40, several folks didn't show up. My husband didn't get any. With that said this should not take away from my excellent experience. Just something to think about with headcount going forward. Some people went back for seconds which added to the issue, but in my opinion not enough to make an impact, as the headcount was 40. I also think beef was more popular so something I need to manage also. The guests raved about the food and asked for her business card. Shawna and her helper took care of everything from picking up finished plates from people, to cleaning up, and placing leftovers in smaller dishes. Shawna will be my go caterer forever!

Everybody loved the food. There was plenty and we even had leftovers. The caterers didn't mind all the stairs they had to take to carry their stove, tables etc. We will hire them again for sure when we are in the area.

I contacted Sage Bleu based on the reviews I saw here. Although there were other caterers with more reviews, I was looking for a talented caterer, not jaded by decades in the business, who would go the extra mile to deliver superlative food and service. The reviews I saw here painted a picture of incredible food and personalized, unobtrusive, caring service, so I called Sage Bleu. When I spoke with Lavonne, I casually mentioned a few dishes that only the most savvy food aficionado would know. She subtly let me know that she not only knew what those dishes were, but knew how to prepare them. SOLD! I had Sage Bleu cater a casual neighborhood get together as well as a white tablecloth dinner for a dozen finicky business associates. The food selections were appropriate for both crowds. The food, wine pairings and presentation were impeccable. Service began exactly at the appointed time and clean-up was to the highest white glove standard. I cannot recommend Sage Bleu highly enough!

David & his team did an amazing job for my 30th birthday party! He was very flexible and accessible at all times. I had a few occasions where I had to increase the number of guests, and he handled that with no problem. I also had a situation where I was not going to be at the house prior to the party, as we were on a large group party bus winetasting and he was accommodating and understanding and able to set up the food in our house without me even having to be there. The food was absolutely delicious and he worked with me to customize a menu that would fit the theme of the party but was also very affordable! He provided more than enough food and utensils, we were eating leftovers for days! I will definitely be using Steal Your Taste in the future! Thanks David!

For the past 10 years, a group of my college friends and I get together for a Christmas gathering. This was our first time having our dinner party catered and I'm so glad we connected with Joan. She is absolutely (!) fantastic to work with and she prepared an excellent Italian meal for us. We all couldn't stop raving about the food and we are all looking forward to working with her in the future.

Daily Chew Catering dished up a bit of heaven on a plate for a holiday party recently and from the first time I contacted Carly until the last bit of food was gone, we were blown away by the entire experience. Daily Chew Catering offers a wide selection of menu options, so there's guaranteed to be something great for every palate, and everything is done well. Daily Chew does food service right, and I'll no doubt be quick to call back and start planning for our next event as soon as the time comes. Thank you for the professionalism, the amazing food, and your passion for great-tasting, incredible quality catering experience!

We had our annual conference and needed someone that had some flexibility on the amount of guests attending. O'Side BBQ Man was not just accommodating but provided amazing service. He arrived early to make sure he was ready to serve on time and also the food was amazing. Everyone wished they could have had seconds, maybe even thirds. We will definitely be booking O'Side BBQ Man for any future company events.

Ellena is incredible! She offers amazing food and exceptional service. She clearly loves what she does and is passionate about food and clients, offering creativity and customization. Whether looking to feed yourself or your family healthy meals or looking to host a knock-your-socks-off catered gathering - I work with her regularly for both and there is nothing she doesn't wow me with. The best Cuban sandwiches you have ever tasted for a fun Miami night theme, mashed potatoe bar for a midnight comfort food theme at a fancy holiday party - Ellena is creative, kind, and extremely talented. I would highly recommend her.
