We loved Jimmy as soon as we met him for our tasting trial. He cooked all the dishes we had requested at our own apartment on our little stove and it all tasted wonderful. Talking with him you can tell how passionate he is about food and what he does, and he genuinely loves making people happy by creating delicious dishes. We hired him immediately for our Wedding. Throughout the process, Jimmy and his team were responsive, answered any questions we had, helped us with our design choices for menus and flatware layout, and easily accommodated our guests' food restrictions or the slight changes in the guest list. On our Wedding day, they were swift to set up the table layout just how we had specified and all of the presentational touches looked perfect. The food was absolutely phenomenal, we had so many guests raving about how good the meal was. It's a true testament to Jimmy and the team's skill that they were able to replicate all the dishes perfectly across every table. 100/10 would recommend Matiz catering for any special event, we feel so lucky to have had them for our Wedding Day!

We were planning a small wedding at our house and needed a caterer who was creative and professional. We found Jimmy Matiz Online and contacted them. The response was immediate an incredibly professional. My wife talked to Jimmy a number of times and settled on the Perfect menu for our group. We had the wedding last night, and the food could not have been better… People were raving about the pizza, the Gyoza, the salmon skewers, the sliders and virtually everything. On top of that, Jimmy and his staff were amazing! Could not have been more helpful and more professional. Not only would we use them again, I can’t wait to find another event so we can bring them back in!

TLDR: Chef Jimmy, Angie and our server Kadie were top notch and the night was amazing! FULL REVIEW: We decided to have a long overdue holiday friend reunion and the best date that worked for us all was only two weeks away and I'm so glad we found Chef Jimmy. To start we had a quick call to go through what I was looking for and from there, everything was smooth. In no time, I was connected with Angie on his team and they got us all set up, went through all the options they offered and they always made our event feel special and you could sense the excitement they had for the menu and making our night memorable. We decided to go with their experience package and boy am I glad we did. It made the night super easy because everything was provided - custom holiday printed menus, name tags, plates, cutlery - the whole nine yards. They even gave us wine pairing suggestions to go with each meal, including bottles we already had, and sent us links to the bottles they suggested which made it super easy to order and have ready for the night. Highly recommend going this route. Chef Jimmy recommended a menu and I honestly had nothing to change. One of the great things was we had two options for proteins - a sirloin steak and a halibut - so my guests who didn't eat red meat had an option. We also had a couple friends who were pregnant and he was very accommodating for them too. The night of, from the moment Chef Jimmy and Kadie showed up, we knew it was going to be a great night. They were very warm and excited to dive in and got to work right away. Kadie was top class - always making sure we were taken care of and our wine glasses were full. Chef Jimmy introduced the menu at the top of the night and then it was just hours of deliciousness. Every single meal from the appetizers to the dessert was amazing and things that we normally wouldn't see on a menu which made it even better. I can't recommend Chef Jimmy, Kadie and Angie enough and will definitely be calling back for any future events! P.S. - We are the worst at taking photos. We wanted to take more but we just got lost in the magic of the night.

Details: Holiday meal (Mother's day, Valentine's day, etc.) • 6 - 10 guests • Cocktail hour / hors d'oeuvres • Dinner • Dessert • Premium (high end ingredients) • American - formal • American - casual • Mexican / Latin American • French • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

Chef Jimmy and his wonderful team did a fantastic job at my work get together. They were professional, thoughtful, great to work with- not to mention the food was amazing!! I highly recommend Chef Jimmy and also recommend the luxury experience. This included them setting the table (and bringing all of their own plates/glasses/cutlery) as well as servers for our dinner- what an amazing experience! They also have the option to print a menu and name cards- it was such a nice touch! Everything from start to finish was a lovely experience- from the first phone call we had with Chef to discuss the menu to the end of the night having guests that were impressed and had an amazing time. Thank you so much!

I couldn’t explain with words how amazing the experience was. The entire team was very responsive from the beginning going through every detail, to make sure we were having the wedding of our dreams. After talking to a lot of caterers and with so many options we decided to go with Chef Jimmy’s expertise. It’s known that weddings food is always expensive and also very basic, so that was our biggest fear. But when we met the team and tasted the food we knew this was something else, the prices are just above average but the food is absolutely incredible. The service was smooth, friendly and we felt like they cared about our wedding just as much as we did. Can’t recommend Chef Jimmy and his team enough!
