Marcel was EXCELLENT! I had an unusual catering job, one he hadn't done before. He was terrific at following up with me, patient when I had to delay getting back to him, and took care to understand exactly what I needed. And then he carried it out to the letter, with perfect results. And he's super easy to work with. By sheer coincidence, one of my event attendees had used his catering services just a couple of months before, and also had only glowing reviews of his food and his service. If you have need for catering or chef services, you can't go wrong by hiring Marcel for the job. I can't wait to use him again!
Jose is very responsive and has great service, along with him being a great chef of course! He traveled to my parents house for us to do a tasting for our wedding and we were blown away. It was amazing. We got so many compliments from our friends and family about how good the food was. With that being said I have a couple nitpicky complaints for constructive feedback: The plates and silverware were not what we had originally discussed at the tasting. They were supposed to be the nice plastic that looked real and we got clear which looked cheesy to us. It could have had to do with the fact that we did the tasting about a year in advance and things could have been forgotten or overlooked but the change was never communicated to us. Also, my husband requested to have a spicy BBQ sauce during our tasting and the BBQ sauce was on the side at that time. We discussed having spicy and mild options. I was very excited for the pulled pork at the wedding but it had spicy BBQ sauce all over it! I thought it was going to be on the side, like it was during the tasting. It was so spicy that I couldn't even eat it. :( One of our aunts was not able to eat any of the meat because it was "too peppery" but that was the only other complaint that we got. Other than that everyone loved it. Everything was great and I would still highly recommend Mr. WorldWide Catering, it just wasn't quite perfect for my event.
I hired Gourmet Lovers Catering for my parent's 40th anniversary party. I had them do the dinner and the cake for 100 people. Everything went very smoothly and it was very easy to work with them. Most importantly, the food got very high remarks from the guests. Because of the stress, I couldn't eat more than a few bites that day, but even the left overs the next day were great! If there is another event that I need catered in the future, I will definitely be giving them a call again.
The catering team, chef and assistant, were superb. Food was excellent. Booking and arrangements painless. I highly recommend.
Appreciate The Catering Carnival was prompt and helpful in getting our order to a seemingly out of the way place downtown! The food was hot, great and our guests were pleased!
Even though we couldn't do our event due to a scheduling conflict, Susan was extremely gracious and had a creative menu picked out. I will definitely reach out to Wild Thyme Catering in the future!
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.
If we weren't already all standing up dancing when we did our thank you announcements I GUARANTEE there would've been a standing ovation when we thanked Chef Mumsie and Chef Renee for the AMAZING job they did for our wedding. Just when my husband "YAAYYY, I can officially say that now" and I thought we couldn't be any more impressed, we WERE!!! From start to finish this was the by far the best catering experience for any of us. You guys have all of our cater-worthy events for life. You certainly lived up to your motto and gave us an affair to remember. We're still savoring the last few pieces of the wedding cake... going to be soooo sad when it's all gone. The Morgans
Ms. Johnson did an amazing job catering my event, hosted at St. Vincent de Paul, Council of Los Angeles Thrift Store for the SDSA General Membership Meeting, of 100 people with a buffet, drinks, hors d'oeuvre, and recyclable cutlery. Ms. Johnson helped me determine the best menu for my clients and type of event to make specific to my needs and all within my budget! Her staff was friendly, helpful, and self sufficient. I highly recommend Super Food for Super People for your next corporate event!
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!
My team has always been very pleased with the quality of food that Jordan delivers to our business. He is always very professional and has been very accomodating with my last minute catering needs. I will continue to do business with Aioli as my preferred caterer.
Alexis and her crew were beyond words. I gave a memorial for my mother. The house is small, the day was wickedly hot; the party was inside and outside. There were lots of little old ladies who needed special care. I did not even have to ask. They took such precious care of my guests I was moved to tears. The service was impeccable ( and I am retired from 20 years in the high end dining world, so I do not say that lightly.) And they left the kitchen cleaner than they found it. I cannot recommend So Divine Catering and Alexis Kemp strongly enough.
Thank You KMR Gourmet Catering! We love the services you provided. Our guests loved the food and we loved the fact that you came prepared with extra details that we didn't even think of. You helped make our STEM night event a success!! Thank You!
Hiring Steven and his phenomenal crew was the best decision we could have made for our event! We were tremendously impressed by Steven's professionalism and flexibility to all of our requests, he is an incredibly smart and resourceful businessman and was able accommodate our many brand-standards (for a very attractive price) and wow our guests with the results. The food was simply delicious, the service was exceptional (very warm and affable) and the set up/breakdown was seamless even in our small half kitchen and office space! If you're looking to work with a professional and provide a seamless catering service at your next event, I urge you to hire Steven!!
I have been enjoying the amazing culinary creations of Ms. Van Peebles for several years now. She's catered several dinner parties and also provided amazing Bowl Box treats for concerts at the Hollywood Bowl. Focus on health conscious (I dream of the cauliflower soup), but mouth watering tasty treats!
My work has used Feast for catering a few times and every time we've received tons of compliments on the food from our attendees. Marcus and Melanie are amazing people to work with. Their pricing is great as well.
I'm a Coordinator for a big Corporation at the El Segundo area and my experience with Fitch's Kitchen is excellent!. Delicious food, quality is outstanding and excellent professionalism! I will highly recommend the catering services!
Acacia has catered private events for me and been the head chef at a former restaurant i used to bartend at. She is always professional and provides excellent food! Clients and customers always rave about the flavors and presentation! Great food can make or break an event and Acacia's catering services will guarantee to make your event a success every time!
Chef LaTay was very professional and the food was the best I've ever had. Every morsel of food was delicious, even the baked goods were good. Her presentation was very appealing to the eye. I will continue to patronize Chef LaTay as my catering service.
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!
