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.

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 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!)

Had a Christmas Party for 30 people in my home. Food was prepared on-site. As guests arrived first and caterers second, the kitchen was full of guests nibbling on appetizers. Alisa and her assistant blended right in working around guests. The food was delicious! All guests commented about how wonderful the food was and how pleasant Alisa and her assistant were. Clean-up was provided, and they did a great job at that too. It made enjoying guests and myself fantastic! Planning for the event was seamless, organized and expeditious! When I have another party for my 50th this year, Passionate Plates and Alisa will be on "speed-dial"!

This review is LONG overdue! My wife and I do not buy each other gifts for traditional holidays, we enjoying giving each other experiences! That said... for Valentine's Day this year instead of going out to dinner, my wife surprised me by booking Grace to come and cook for us, in our own home, in our pajamas! Grace was so incredibly professional, her meals were outstanding, and she provided my wife several options to choose from, and she knocked each dish out of the park. She even put the leftovers into our own Tupperware, and did not rush us during each course. My wife and I love to cook ourselves as well as explore new restaurants in the foodie capital of SF... and we both agreed we would rather have Grace cook for us than experience Michelin star restaurants - she is the real deal! Cannot wait to book our next experience with Grace :)

In a world where "you get what you pay for" rarely describes ones actual experience, I can assure you that Graham's service truly goes above and beyond. We had multiple meetings which he was always available for for our event and despite my nail chewing he assured us that all would go well and was he ever right!!! My guests raved at the ambiance and food, his servers were not only always there yet unobtrusive but also quite entertaining. Instead of dreading these large events as we had in the past, I am looking forward with glee to booking Graham's services for our holiday future!!! I would recommend him highly to anyone who expects more, because you will actually get it!!! Bravo Chez Gautier!!!!!!!!

I had a holiday party & expected 50 guests, but 60+ showed up. No worries there as John had plenty of food,& my guests raved about it. The prime rib, baked ham, all the veggies, & desserts were scooped up quickly! John was professional, friendly, & an excellent chef. His 2 servers were polite, & on task. I will definitely hire him again. Nancy Porter

Angela catered my wedding of about 80 people. Her food was amazing. We got the portobello wellington, malfati, and roasted vegetables. The wellington was wonderful, the malfati good, and the vegetables were okay. The garden salad was amazing, and the best part of the meal. Unfortunately, there were issues with the kitchen and her staff was unable to provide food timely. Three tables waited approximately and hour and fifteen after everyone else had received their food. I was disappointed that I hired 4 servers and they had to pull my bartender to serve food. Which left our event in a situation where the event manager had to oversee the bar. Overall the food is really wonderful, but there were some structural issues.

Rainbow Chefs were reliable, professional, and punctual. The entrees were truly impressive-- as good as top SF restaurants we have been to. The desserts and appetizers were also super tasty. The chef was really nice and easy to work with, and the person we spoke with to arrange everything was great as well. The price was reasonable for the services provided. Only reason we are not giving 5 stars is because the first dish, the salad, was super over-salted and pretty lackluster in ingredients. I was definitely worried that the rest of the meal would not be good, but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of everything else. All in all, I would definitely recommend them.

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.

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!
