They catered my daughters Cinderella themed sweet 16 birthday. The food was delicious and served and presented as though you were eating in a high end restaurant. The servers were an added touch, they were professional in appearance and gave impeccable service. My guests raved about how wonderful the food was. I am vegetarian and gluten free and they prepared a special meal for me which I greatly appreciated. The cake was so beautiful... Exactly like the picture we had provided Carolina. I can't say enough good things about this company, but I do know I will use them again! They came in with their team and prepared and served out of my kitchen and left it spotless. Wow is all I can say... Thank you Carolina, Boris and Gustavo for all you did to make this night memorable. ~Shara~

Rich did an excellent job bartending at our Holiday Party. He arrived early, dressed professionally, prepped the bar area, even ran out and got a few things we missed. He was very cordial with our guests and was knowledgeable enough to accommodated everyone's drink requests. Look forward to using his services next time !

Keith prepared an amazing Thanksgiving feast for our employees. He brought tables and chairs for us, set everything up and had a delicious hot meal ready for us to sit down to eat at the time we had requested. And he came back and cleaned up afterward. Five stars!

Edmond was able to cater our party for 25 people on very short notice. He went out of his way to understand our needs by making suggestions and took great pride in preparing a delicious meal. Several of our guests raved about the food and inquired who our caterer was. Edmond was punctual with his set up and preparation and there was plenty of food for everyone. We would recommend Gabriel's for your next party. Thanks again Edmond!

This was the first time I ever had a holiday dinner catered, and I couldn't be happier to have come across Rich at RE Catering. He was a most pleasant person to deal with, and true to his word. He delivered exactly what he promised... delicious home made food, piping hot on Thanksgiving afternoon, with plenty of leftovers. He delivered everything from rolls and butter to pumpkin pie and apple pie. The only thing I supplemented was sweet potato casserole. Although catering our holiday meal was supposed to be an exceptional event to accommodate my hectic work schedule, we are now considering having it caterer by Rich every year. 😋

Having Chef Sarena prepare meals for us weekly has been the best money ever spent. Sarena is absolutely phenomenal — both as a Chef and in terms of her personality, professionalism, and passion. She continues to come up with meals and dishes that suit our tastes perfectly. Thank you!!

Christine McMaster is a hidden gem of the culinary and catering world! She was the caterer last year for a wedding I attended and I was most impressed. She completely handled an amazing dinner for 21 people with delectable Indian and Middle Eastern Food; taking care of the shopping, the food preparation, the service and cleaning up of the food and leftovers. I was so impressed that I asked her to cater an Indian Meal for 75 people! Since it was a much larger undertaking, we provided theingredients, but Chris oversaw every aspect of the preparation of a 5 course meal, and remained calm, organized and personable throughout. The food was absolutely delicious. I would absolutely recommend her for any catering needs you might have - you would be lucky to get her!

Though I was only looking for a drop-off service, Joseph ended up coming with a staff of 2 and making most of the food fresh in my kitchen. There was plenty of food and their service was fantastic. All my guests had a lovely time.

Linda worked with me to lose weight and gain confidence working with my peers and in social settings. She created balanced meal plans, an exercise regimen and taught me about portion control. She also discussed the importance of sleeping and managing my stress levels to maintain my weight, energy level and mental clarity at work. We worked together for 3 months. I would highly recommend her if you are looking to get results!

Avenue Dining is great. My friends and I were wanting to experience a course tasting at a fine dining restaurant but had a budget. Lucky for us we were referred to Chef Gil. Food was fantastic!!! He even paired each course with either wine or beer and explained each dish. We get see him work, ask him questions about the meal, it was like a dinner and show. With the added bonus of just being in the privacy of our own home with no other diners, made it even more special.

When we were looking for a professional to cater our clubhouse event, we contacted five companies. Creative Catering from Temecula was one of those five. From the start, we were very comfortable talking and working with the owner, Tanya. She is extremely friendly and accommodating. Tanya provided us with sample meals to taste and was able to provide guidance from start to finish. As our guest list grew from 30 to 60 she was able to be very flexible to whatever changes needed to be made. Every time we had a question or menu change, Tanya responded promptly and professionally. On the evening of the clubhouse social, Tanya and her assistant were very punctual. The set-up, service and clean-up went flawlessly. Feedback from our club members was very positive. Our guests commented to us how well the meals tasted and how professional Tanya and her assistant were. The bottom line is that we would highly recommend Creative Catering and we will be looking forward to using them in the future. NJ and LJ (55+ Club)

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!
