Rocco was responsive and easy to work with. Food was outstanding and generous, tasty and beautiful. The Beef Wellington was delicious and a huge favorite, but a little hard to cut and serve in attractive ways. Beet salad was delicious, lasagne very tasty and cheesecake with fruit compote really delicious. One of my colleagues who attended immediately planned to have Rocco cater his holiday family party and we would definitely love to have his professional services again!

We had the most amazing taco bar and the best service at our Holiday party. I should have written this review sooner, so other people could have had the same outstanding experience. Thank you Evan and your crew.

We hosted a holiday dinner for a party of 14 and Chef Sat was absolutely incredible. He was very responsive, flexible, prepared, professional, and easy to work with. From choosing the menu to executing the dishes, everything was perfect and stress free. Most importantly, our guests loved his dishes and we were able to relax and entertain as hosts. We highly recommend him and will surely invite him back again!

Using A Plus for catering assistance was the best holiday gift I’ve ever given myself. I needed help for a self-catered holiday gathering. I was looking for a flexible professional willing to do whatever - food prep, serving, cleaning. They sent Brenda - a proper chef. Wow! She was amazing - friendly, calm, extremely capable, flexible, and an absolute delight to work with. She figured out how to use my rotisserie oven, made a dynamite roast chicken, fried potato pancakes like a pro, left my kitchen clean, and allowed me to spend a wonderful, stress-free evening with my guests. By the end of the evening, my guests were hugging her as they said their goodbyes. Will definitely use A Plus & Brenda again.

I hosted a 50th birthday dinner at our home last night form my wife and 12 of her close girl friends. Senorita Gourmet Andrea Gray catered a Mexican themed dinner for us and did an outstanding job. The ladies absolutely loved it and my wife could not have been more pleased with her birthday dinner. Thank you Andrea. We interviewed three other private chefs for our dinner before deciding to go with Andrea. She was the most professional, the most responsive, and by far the most creative. Of course we wanted great food (Andrea can deliver that), but we were also looking for something unique and creative, without being stiff and formal. Enter Andrea, with her Mexican themed dinner complete with her own plates, glasses and table decorations. Fun, Festive, and Uniquely Fresh! As for the food and drink. Key highlights were the Raspberry Mojitos, Avocado Soup, Quiche de Calebazita, and Mexican Corn Cake. I highly recommend the Una Senorita Gourmet.

Deb makes the most amazing quiche and is such a pleasure to work with. I worked with her when she prepared quiches for our Christmas party at our home. She takes such pride in her quiches and her full service catering and has developed this into an outstanding business. I would recommend her to cater your next event and assure anyone that she delivers the best quiches and excellent services along with her great smiles and laughs.

I have been to several catering events that Chet Chase has orchestrated, from a small private luncheon to a large holiday party. The raves from guests were numerous and the "ooohhss" and "aaahhhaas" were heard about the appetizers, drinks and entrees. He is so creative and can work within any budget. The plus side too, he is a "dream" to work with and his team is so professional. I would hire him in a heartbeat!

I hired Chef Sean to cook a 20-person dinner for my wedding. The entire experience was phenomenal! I have celiac and he was more than accommodating to my diet needs throughout the process. I wanted a special cake for our wedding so we did not get a chance to try his dessert this time around, but he did surprise us by loaning us the cake cutters he used at his own wedding. It was such a thoughtful and special gesture. The entire meal was seamless - Sean and his team were on time, took care of all the food details and clean-up and we never felt rushed between courses. He also offered great wine-pairing suggestions. Our family still raves about this meal and is constantly brainstorming opportunities to hire him again. Thank you Chef Sean for the unforgettable meal and evening!

I had a great experience with hiring Kitchenina as our caterers for an event with 40 people. The communication was always prompt, polite and friendly. They did a great job on the day of the event to ensure that the food was delivered on time (despite the traffic/weather conditions) and made my job as the event organizer much easier. I would definitely work with Kitchenina again in the future, and regret that I did not take photos of the food! (Thanks for the brownies as well!)

I've known Grace for many years. I have been over to her house for home cooked meals that were truly gourmet, and delicious. She also prepared some food and sold it from her home. On the level of catering for large parties, I went to our friend Dave's party last month were Grace did the catering. The food was flawless, delicious, with great presentation, and great variety. I strongly recommend Grace for catering your events.

Lucas did a tremendous job for us. He accommodated last minute changes, dietary restrictions and additional guests. The food was superb. He personally delivered everything on Thanksgiving, quickly organized the meal for us, ensured everything was perfect and then excused himself. We had enough food for three times the number of people and had leftovers that saw us through the entire holiday weekend. All 14 of us heartily thank and recommend Lucas.

Oh my goodness, I was so, so impressed with Cheri's cooking. I've never, and I mean never, tasted a turkey that was as tender and flavorful as hers. I'm getting hungry right now just thinking of it. She catered our holiday party, and the depth and delight of all her amazing dishes tantalized all the guests. All her dishes we're cooked and baked to perfection. She's a genius in the kitechen, with a down-home, nurturing spirit to boot. I highly recommend Cheri for any catering event you're planning in the future. Your guest will rave that it's the best catered food they've ever had.

Verified review

We had a very large action sports event come to San Francisco and I was in charge of hiring and scheduling a caterer. After reaching out to 5-6 different companies, I decided Gimanelli's Catering would be the perfect fit. They were extremely easy to work with and to get ahold of, she was responsive when I requested changes to the menus, and was able to work with my budget. On one day I think we scheduled up to seven meal services in different locations. When the actual event happened we used Gimanelli's for 5 days of back-to-back service. You can't go wrong with them from your large corporate event to a small family get-to-gether - I would definitely use them again in the future.

We hired Mark to cater brunch for our wedding, and we were very impressed! He replies in a timely manner to questions, requests, and concerns. From the moment he reached out in response to my project on Thumbtack, Mark worked hard to accommodate our needs. He made sure that we felt good about the menu before we booked him, and had us over for a tasting. Additionally, he noticed an item we didn't originally include on the menu and graciously added it to the meal (potatoes!). Many of our guests made comments to us about how much they enjoyed the food, and everyone (about 130 people) had as much to eat as they wanted with food left over. My only regret was that as the bride I didn't have the chance to eat as much of that AMAZING French toast as I wanted!

A first class experience without a doubt! I knew my family and I were in for a real treat from the beginning. Niko bent over backwards to tailor each dish according to various requests and allergies and more than delivered on it. I went with the crowd favorites, but I GUARANTEE you there isn't a wrong move possible when solidifying your menu choices. I can't say enough about the quality of food (all organic, fresh, and hand crafted), the presentation, and mixture of textures with each dish. Niko is truly a master at creating a healthy, delicious, and enjoyable meal. In addition, she was such a delight to have in our house and has such a warm, welcoming vibe. I can't recommend her cooking services enough...now off to hiring her for meal prep services!
