I hired APC valet for a corporate function/party held at my house in the hills in Orange County. Our driveway can be challenging and the extra parking spots are 0.3 miles away. Steve and Randall showed up to our house this last Saturday dressed with black pants and a white shirt. They had a large cone that said Valet and they had a lock box to hold all of our guests keys. They were friendly, professional and experienced. The dress code was important to me too and they were dressed to par. I felt my guests' cars would be in good hands with these two gentlemen. The evening was a success, my guests said the gentlemen that Valeted them were very polite and professional, everybody seemed happy. I will truly hire them again! This was our first time dealing with Eddie the owner of APC Valet company and AE event staff. He was extremely helpful and friendly and his communication skills are top notch. He says he also has staff and bartenders and all kinds of other event services. I will definitely hire his other staff too in the future. I went with a different company for my bar-tending and staffing needs, since I did not know at the time that Eddie had other staff then Valet services. The other company I hired, my bartender showed up 1 1/2 hr late and did not bring a server as hired. I should have completely gone with Eddie's staff instead. Live and learn and I will do it next time. If you are looking for a reputable company with all the insurance and liability coverage, with professional and experienced staff, then this is a company for you! This is what I learned today. They are a full event staff company as well. They just did the grand re opening of the Peterson museum last week. Josee

We had an amazing service from Rob. He helped create special drinks and was flexible when I needed him to come earlier than requested. Have had many bar services and this was the best so far. Thanks Rob and company!

On 12-17-15, the Employees' Union of the State Bar of California hired Chef Marcel for our Holiday Luncheon. Chef Marcel and his staff came on time, set up quickly, and were very professional. The food was delicious and they were able to serve over 100 employees in less than an hour, and clean up and pack up quickly. Our luncheon was a huge success! I have received nothing but positive comments from my Union members. I highly recommend Chef Marcel and we will definitely use his services again! Thank you, Lita Abella, President Employees' Union of the State Bar of California

Rob bartended for an afternoon at my 40th poolside birthday party, expertly catering to the needs of 20 guests with diverse needs and requests. His drinks were top notch and he was proactive in asking guests what they wanted and making the pool rounds. And working with Rob was a breeze, as he was responsive to email and had helpful suggestions beforehand about the shopping and drink list. Five stars!!

Eddy was incredible! The event was in Los Feliz where any day parking is a challenge. Eddy went to the property, assessed local available parking and gave a great estimate on the number of valets which would be required to service 50+ cars. When I arrived, there were valets available, extremely helpful and polite. When leaving, my car was delivered in a most timely manner. I am a corporate catering manager in Orange County and I'm pretty anal about details. I am very impressed with the service and so were all of the guests, because I asked.

We used Zen Craft for catering services for a corporate lunch. The variety of healthy, veg-friendly, seasonal options were the reason I chose them. A decision which I'm glad I took! The honey chipotle glazed salmon were the HUGE hit I was hoping it would be. My coworkers were raving about the short ribs, and I was thrilled with the simple tomato pasta. Im half Italian and am pretty picky about pasta- I figured I'd like these okaaay, but was pleasantly surprised to find that the pasta was Perfect! Even the salad was great- fresh ingredients with a tasty meyer lemon vinaigrette. The risotto was exactly what I was expecting rich mushroom flavored a creamy risotto, the flavor was solid. And here I am at desserts... All were Delicious (brownies/blondies/choc chip sea salt cookies)- but the butterscotch budino... You guys... Ohhh. Mannn. It was the first thing I thought about when I woke up this morning and I immediately had one of the leftovers for breakfast. The rosemary crumble was such a subtle complement to the butterscotch. Unusual and really lovely. 10/10- would eat daily ;) Last little thing, which is often overlooked, but adds so much when done nicely- the presentation. Setting up delivered food in a meeting room isn't optimal for an appealing display. But I've gotta say, Zen Craft clearly put thought into even these small details. The packaging made it look more high end than typical food delivery, and the kraft paper colored sticker with their cute elephant logo labels were both attractive and clever. To top it all off, the desserts were artistically sprinkled with and arranged amongst edible flowers. What an appreciated surprise that was! Not only was the food beautiful to look at, but the edible flowers on the budino were an enjoyable teeny tiny textural pop. Least exciting detail, but important! Delivery was right on time and the driver was efficient and polite with the set up. So pleased!

I was in charge of bar services for my sister's 50th birthday and JaNae made the "job" easy for me. She was very pleasant to work with from the very beginning. She replied promptly to all my questions. She created the perfect signature drink for my sister. She and Alyssa showed up on the day of the event in a timely manner to set up, they were professionally dressed and with a vibrant, happy personality. They were a hit with all of our guests. They served delicious drinks, kept the lines to a minimum (150 guests) and overall their presence and service created a fun and positive atmosphere for our event. My family and I will definitely consider JaNae and Glamorous Drinks for any of our future bartending needs. Thank you JaNae!

We live in Laguna Niguel, and Madkins Catering was on time and I remember saying to the waitstaff, "omg, there's still more food?! Needless to say there was so much food. Madkins Catering was upfront with me in the very beginning explaining how much of each appetizer or food item I'd actually be getting which is great. I think we adjusted the amounts a few times because I thought it was going to be too much food lol, and it ended up being still too much food.... But who's complaining? :-) My guests were very pleased with the meal and left on a very very full stomach. This company is very nice and professional and delivered exactly what I wanted. I forgot to do a review at the time of the event, but the event was about 2 weeks ago. Everyone please try them, the food is delicious and at a great price!

I hired Jill's bartending service for an event I was hosting in which we had no idea what kind of drinks we wanted. Jill was great because she took charge and helped us create a perfectly themed drink menu that was appropriate for our event. During the event, she was awesome! Not only did she keep the drinks coming but she kept the attendees entertained. Jill was truly everything you want your bartender to be!

Caren! This girl knows what's she's doing. I have a fully stocked bar at home. When I say fully stocked I mean FULLY stocked!! Caren sent me her menus which were impressive, but due to the time crunch I didn't have time to select any. I told her not to worry, that everything would be provided. She showed up and delivered. Knew how to make every drink she was asked for....on top of that she never had a line and I had about 100 people at my house. Definitely my go to girl

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.

The best bartender EVER! Shawn was on top of the planning, offering other services, such as bar rental, garnishes, etc. He thought of everything so that I didn't have to! He even brought the ice to keep everything cold! I would recommend Shawn anytime and will definitely hire him again for our next party!

Open Bar provided services for my grandmother's funeral and I couldn't ask for a more professional service and at the price they charged, it felt like a steal. It was so easy to book them - Brooke, one of the owners was incredibly responsive and indulged all of my questions - and communicating my needs for the event was easy and stress-free. The bartender arrived early, was dressed very professionally, and maintained an air about him that was perfect for the tone (being a funeral and all). He made sure my parents were taken care of, and kept the bar area neat. I can't recommend Open Bar enough!

Jordan is an excellent chef and caterer. He produces food that is way beyond the standard catering services. If you want cookie cutter catering go with someone else. If you want really great food at a great price stop on by or use his catering.

I hired smoking Gun bartending to do a annual halloween party me and my wife do every year. This time we wanted to make it more of a professional event, so we hired catering, security, and a Bartender by the name of Luke. I was very impressed at how Luke handled our guests needs, he even created some aweome spooky themed drinks off the top of his head. I as well as all my guest of about 95 friends and family had a amazing halloween bash and making the decision to hire Smokin Gun was one of the main reasons. Thank you luke for you’re fun attitude and tasty drinks. Defenitly recomend him the his service if you can book him!
