I would highly recommend Lilian for your catering needs! She catered our business cocktail party for approximately 25 people in our home supplying tray-passed hors d'oeuvres. She possesses a vivacious personality and is extremely fun to work with! Her culinary skills are excellent...the food was fantastic! (My personal favorite was the Sicilian Swordfish Skewers.) She will be the first person I call when I need a caterer again!!
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!
One of the best caterer's I ever used. This party was on my yacht and everything from communication, deciding menu items, best price by far, set up, serving and the high quality food made from scratch was magnificent!!!!! Can't wait to use Francesco for my next event. Titi
On Sunday November 29th 2015 I had the distinct fortune to have Chef Leslie Merle cater a special event for my food and wine organization. Leslie and her staff hit a Home run!! The food and service were outstanding and I can't wait for another opportunity to work with her again. So if you need to use a caterer that you can trust I would highly recommend Chef Leslie.

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!
Dave the caterer really knows how to cook! During our first tasting we meet at a park and didn't really know what to expect but as he brought out our Mexican menu, he would make sure to give us our space and plenty of time to try the food! And seriously he makes the best refried beans ever!!! During the wedding he was on time and brought all of the tables, linens and supplies! He was professional and very helpful during cleanup! I would definitely recommend his services! :)
We had Joan cook an anniversary dinner for my parents and our whole family. She was very easy to deal with, on time and had great ideas for the dinner. The food was exactly as planned and the serving sizes very generous! I would not hesitate in having Joan cook another private dinner for us should we return to San Diego.
Stephani did a fantastic job catering our affair. The food was tasty, healthy, and the presentation was impressive. Highly recommend.
Crystal Catering has been our caterer for seven years. As a wedding venue we require not only great food but excellent service, reliability and professionalism. Crystal Catering meets all of these over and over. Enchanted Forest, Fallbrook, CA
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!
Food was great and staff were professional. Quality and taste of food exceeded expectations. Highly recommend
Mahalo Alvin. You and your food was outstanding, Great BBQ meal at a great price. Ordered for 25 and got enough food for 30 plus. Thank you again. Call you for our next occasion.
Simply put....AMAZING! April is our new go to event caterer, she is the best of the best. Details, exquisite food, and she is so warm and kind on top of that! All if our guests were so impressed!!
Chef Andrew Selz was a pleasure to work with. His charismatic personality, attention to detail, creativity and flare in the kitchen made for an unforgettable evening. His creations far surpassed our expectations, both in taste and presentation, and the effort he put into making sure the evening was perfect, down to the the linen cloth was exceptional. I would highly recommend Chef Selz to anyone looking to hire a chef to cater. You will not regret your decision!
Ellena was amazing and catered a meal for 17 of us over the course of 3 days. Her ability to make great food at scale with fresh ingredients left our entire party in awe. I would def use her again!
I make everything from scratch, ill even cut my own seasonings from fresh herbs for certain dishes. I make my own rubs and sauces with atypical ingredients. I only use the highest quality ingredients, and prefer organic produce and grass fed meats.
