Chef Marcel, Provided one of the best experiences our company, staff, and guests could have ever imagined! The menu that was created tasted amazing, the variety was plentiful, and staff was engaging. I would recommend Chef Marcel and his staff any day they can fulfill any of your catering needs even with minimal space (lol).

I was very happy with Chef Marcel's catering and his team. He came early and preped appetizers that were yummy. So everything went smoothly. My guest raved about the rice/orzo and the triton. I highly recommend his service to anyone looking for a great chef who is down to earth friendly and is great at what he does.

I had an amazing experience with Carolina and Gourmet Lovers Catering!! The food was incredible but the personal customer service put them over the top! I hired them for a baby shower event and so many guests asked me where I got the food from! Will definitely look to them again for my next event. 110% satisfied!

Very thankful and we fell in love the fact we can customize our menu!! That was music to our ears to a foodie couple like us!! Our menu was an around-the-world theme. We picked fresh, colorful, tasty, and bold flavors and dishes that we love. We opted for buffet style since that gave us more food options and it fit within our budget. I was hesitant with this because I am not a big fan of buffet presented in huge metal containers--it just looks too casual for me. But Monica convinced me that R&R will have the table beautifully styled with food signage and dishes served in copper metal so it would give it a more shabby chic look which I loved so I was sold! The catering staff totally listened to our modifications during the food tasting and was pleasant to work with. I loved the fact that they are very progressive in their approach to food incorporating many techniques and varied flavors!  I was so glad they didn't have the standard, run-of-the-mill wedding menu where your only options were Menu A, Menu B, and Menu C. Their food was so unique and tasty!! It's like one of those cool dishes you would see on cooking shows like Top Chef or Food Network. They give you a detailed questionnaire about food likes/dislikes, flavor profiles, and restaurants you like to frequent.  From that they work their magic and give you a very delectable menu catered to your taste buds.  HOW AWESOME IS THAT!!!! Here's our menu.  At our wedding there was a smorgasbord of appetizers: *Braised short ribs on brioche crostini with buttermilk mash and crispy roquefort cheese *Potato cake with duck confit and sour cherry compote *Sweet potato and mango samosa with curried tamarind dip *Roasted tomato soup shooter topped with basil oil & served with mini triangle grilled cheese sandwiches *Sashimi tuna on crispy cilantro scented rice cake with avocado topped with scallion and pickled ginger *Steamed lobster & crab dumplings with piquillo pepper salsa and chili oil *Potato crusted scallops over braised leeks with shiitake marmalade For entrees we had seafood and chicken paella over saffron rice, marinated skirt steak with chimichurri sauce, and butternut squash ravioli with brown butter.  Accompanying salad and sides included Farmers market chopped salad, green papaya salad, haricot vert with almonds & brown butter, and caramelized Brussels sprouts with bacon and balsamic glaze. Everything was mouthwatering goodness!!!!   Needless to say our guests raved about the food! We had an amazing time at a gorgeous venue with hands down delicious food created by a very talented staff! Kudos!

OMG! I can't say enough good things about our organization's experience with Zen Craft Catering. This was the first time using Thumbtack to secure services and I was a little nervous. Our organization was planning a holiday party and was trying to decide what to do about feeding our 50 guests. We were considering some type of delivery or catering but wasn't sure if we could swing getting a caterer on short notice. After putting in all of our information (late on a Sunday evening) we had a reply the very next day. Once we got in touch with Zen Craft Catering, and looked at their website, we were immediately impressed with the variety of the holiday party menu. After speaking with Amy, she worked with us to put together a menu, paying attention to our needs for vegan and vegetarian options. We were able to confirm the menu and work out all of the logistics in less than one day. Amy and Chef Sauber arrived at our event right on time with everything. (I was really impressed that their executive chef showed up for our small event). They completed their food prep and set up of buffet quickly. We were ready to kick off our party without a hitch. Zen Craft Catering went above and beyond, chef Sauber even made a second trip to get vegan dressing for our salad. The food was FANTASTIC! It looked gorgeous and was very flavorful. There was the right amount for the number of guests, and even some leftovers. Our guests raved about the food (the lobster mac and cheese was a hit, and the salmon with honey and chipotle glaze also received high praise. The kale salad with mandarin oranges and cherries was also popular). They treated us like a valuable client, were warm, friendly and professional. We are excited to have found a catering that can work with us. We are a community based organization that has done events and they exceeded out expectations. We look forward to working with them on future events!

The food was excellent and the set up was generally smooth. The only small snafu was that the caterer did not bring carving knives or cutting boards for the Turkey and Ham, but that was probably as much the result of my failing to ask for them as anything. We had a wonderful meal and I found this catering service easy to work with. I will use them again in the future for sure.

My boyfriend scheduled a dinner with Susan from Wild Thyme Catering for my birthday. Two days before the dinner, we had a situation where we had to cancel our reservations out and eat in. Luckily we picked a night when Susan's plans changed and she was available. She amazed us by pulling it all together quickly and meeting all my strict dietary needs. We had a fabulous experience with Susan! She brought a beautiful flower arrangement that she had created and some colorful balloons. She made the table look lovely! The food she made was delicious! She arrived on time and made everything seem to simple. It was an incredible 6 course meal, plus dessert. Susan is very creative and a joy to work with. We will definitely be working with her again for future events. P.S. My boyfriend says she is reasonable.

Having driven about 2 hours from the high desert to Huntington Beach and not having to worry about how to feed all the families we invited for our "company beach day off" made our day even greater. Lessons about vendor permits learned and so I know that in the future we can count on Catering Carnival for these events.

I had the pleasure to experience the food and service of KMR Gourmet Catering in different occasions. The service and quality of their meals are first class. It really does not matter if the event is private, corporate, public and/or family parties. Kenia is an awesome host, paying always close attention to the smallest details and presentation. On another hand the delicious, healthy and good looking creations of Chef Rivas makes it always special and tasty. Thank you for the good food and memories!

Lori catered a birthday party for my husband and I at our home. She and her staff were on time and created an incredible affair that had all my guests in awe. She created extraordinary center pieces and had the food displayed in a truly phenomenal fashion. She helped me order supplies and really understood exactly what I was looking for. She is incredibly hard workng, creative and thoughtful. I cannot say enough great things about her or her staff. The bartender was amazing as were the servers. Everyone loved the food to say the least. I honestly have no negative comments. Everything was exceptional and believe me I am very picky. Will definitely use her services again and again.

We've worked with Fitch for over a decade. Throughout that time Fitch has catered events for our corporate staff and for joint meetings with our clients. In every case, Fitch has exceeded our expectations. The food and its presentation are fantastic. Fitch is personally wonderfully to work with. Perhaps of greatest importance is that once our requests have been placed with Fitch, we simply arrive at the event with absolutely no concerns. It turns out perfectly, every time.

Fitch's Kitchen catered my wedding at the Wedding Tree in Point Fermin Park in San Pedro, CA. The food was delicious, it was delivered on time, and Fitch was very understanding about a hiccup with my payment method and delivered food anyway, making sure my day wasn't ruined by an oversight (that was my own doing). I had several guests comment on the food and ask where it was from. THANK YOU!!!
