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.

This review is long overdue, but I'm so glad that we had Radish & Rose cater our wedding! I got married at The Hudson Loft, and Ariana and her team provided amazing food, super attentive service, and went above and beyond to make sure that everything went off without a hitch. We were so glad to have them as a part of our big day! We'd met with a few caterers when we were first planning our wedding, but Radish & Rose was the obvious choice for us. Their staff was friendly and open to our ideas/input from day one, plus they had the best food and planning options. They took care of every detail, which is so important when you're booking a raw space and need to rent tables/chairs, place settings, and just about everything else. Ariana thought of everything and was able to answer all of our little questions and gave us advice on the things that we were clueless about. She made our day stress-free so we were able to focus on having a great time!

Shawna is AMAZING!! She was the ONLY vendor we had for our wedding that didn't give us any difficulties. I emailed her asking to make changes and every time her response was "of course"! The food was amazing and her services were beyond outstanding. Shawna was flexible in creating our brunch menu and catered to a handful of vegans we had on our guest list. Even our non vegan guests enjoyed the vegan options! We were looking forward to left overs but everyone enjoyed the food so much, there were none!! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a caterer whether it be a wedding or any special event. I am definitely keeping her information in case I need a caterer again someday! If you want to be stress free about catering, choose Shawna! You won't 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 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!

We found Prime Cuts Catering through Thumbtack, we emailed Ron and he responded via phone immediately after. We put him in touch with the host and set everything up. At the party the staff catering was excellent: professional, friendly, clean, prompt. Everything you would want and expect. But the food was absolutely amazing!!! It was cooked to perfection and we are still craving it days after!!! Everything was delicious!!! The prices and service was great! We couldn't ask for anything better!!! We are super happy we choose Prime Cuts and will definitely be using it again. We are really grateful for Ron's flexibility and timing, and are so happy he catered for my Uncle's special day! Many thanks!! Sincerely, Ashley and Clifton Rider

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

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.

I am beyond grateful to Thumbtack for connecting me to Chef Keith Prante and his team at Hautè Productions Events and Catering to cater my mom's 80th birthday celebration. They are absolutely A-MAZING! Chef Prante was one of two chefs who responded to my request via Thumbtack, and I also received a personal referral. Neither of the other caterers offered ANYWHERE NEAR the quality, selections, variety and value that Hautè offered at my price point. We had our tasting today, and it absolutely sealed the deal! Everything was delicious and the presentation was outstanding. I highly recommend Hautè Productions to any potential customer who appreciates excellence, accommodation and genuine customer service.

Tray Gourmet Catering provided a wonderful Afternoon Tea to our 140 guests in Carlsbad . They generously donated their services to our Non-Profit fundraiser impressing our Board Members, but most important our guests. The majority of our guests don't usually have an opportunity to come to such a event. Our Afternoon Tea included 5 traditional Tea sandwiches as well as special sandwiches for our young guests, We also had an assortment of 4 delicious desserts . The plate presentation was beautiful too. The entire staff was very friendly, had prompt delivery and set up and they executeded all of our requests. I also had the opportunity to see them serve a wedding in Vista. Again it was a beautiful presentation and the kitchen smelled amazing, wish I could have stayed to eat there too. Just love the staff at Tray Gourmet Catering. Jeanette Ansell Sequoia Dream Foundation

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

After receiving a great referral for a caterer, we hired RE Catering for a company event of 20 people. I have yet experienced a caterer who exemplifies the understanding and professionalism required to successfully prepare, serve and clean up an event as well as they did. We're a small S Corp. and appreciated this wonderful experience. The menu had many choices, food was outstanding and the service extraordinary. We became a regular customer and continued to use RE Catering for company lunches and various events. I would highly recommend RE Catering. You won't be disappointed!! Tiburon Design Torrance, CA

Having found La Panzano on Thumbtack, I was a little hesitant to hire since I had never worked with them before. Joseph was extremely accommodating and responsive. He provided a tasting and was able to work with our dietary restrictions. La Panzano catered our office Holiday Party and our 125 staff were all very happy. The food was great! The servers were very friendly and moved the line along quickly. I would highly recommend La Panzano as a caterer and looked forward to having another event soon in order to have some of their other food!

Meraki is a Greek word used to describe putting a lot of love, creativity and soul into something which is why Jory Pomeranz chose the name. It is easy to smell, taste and see that a lot of love goes into each Meraki Meal. Jory has a natural ability to combine flavors. He can time every course so they are not only cooked at the perfect temperature, but served at the correct temperature and add flare to something basic like a chicken thigh. Even the grill marks on a piece of chicken are perfectly spread out and just enough to give the chicken a grill flavor without ruining the juicy tenderness we all strive for when making chicken. Jory can make things that you hated as a kid taste delectable. Jory adds spices and sauces up until the minute prior to serving to make sure each plate is perfect. I once saw Jory save what was about to be terrible chicken tacos by creating a homemade taco sauce from a nearly empty refrigerator. With Meraki Meals the food suits the season. Who wants to eat watermelon in October when pomegranate and apples are so delicious. Every Meraki Meal tastes like the season and uses fresh fruits and vegetables. Meraki Meals put a healthy spin on what looks and tastes like a calorie nightmare, but each meal is filled with proteins and vitamins. Not only is the flavor impeccable, the presentation is a work of art. Even when catering for 35-40 people, Meraki Meals are served in beautiful silver dishes. Meraki Meals are great for crowds of any size. I have to make a conscious effort not to scrape my plate clean every time I have had Meraki Meals. I highly recommend Meraki Meals for a party of any size, but especially 8-12 people because this might give the chef a chance to sit and talk with you which is a treat of its own!
