He did everything he said he would, and more. Could not have asked for a better chef. His assistant, Michelle, helped me so much. Excellent appetizers, dinner and dessert. Everyone went back for seconds and thirds! Truly a successful evening. Highly recommend!

Rocco came to my home to cook for my guests. He did a great job !! While he was serving the food for us he was sharing his cooking experience and also he told us how to select healthy foods: while we were eating to hear his experience and knowledge about foods it was our appetizer! The food he cooked for us the flavor came from the food itself: our food it was not too spicy or add too much another thing to get the flavor ( like cream , too much butter or oil) but I can tell from the food flavor Rocco use fresh and organic food for his cooking and that gives his cooking very natural and healthy taste ! He is very charming and thoughtful! The food was phenomenal! I really recommended Rocco as a experienced chef for someone who need healthy and testy food for parties or for any event! I have a plant to hire him for all my future events. I really excited to know such a talented chef in the Bay Area!! Thank you so much Rocco to make my dinner party very special and an forgettable!!

Sat was incredible! He cooked an amazing 3 course meal for 8 assorted finicky, typical, crazy Bay Area dietary restricted people (gluten-free, lactose intolerant, vegetarian, etc.) and made us all happy!! I got stuck at work so I left a key under my mat for St to get in and start cooking. When I got home, my house smelled amazing! Sat found everything, was already cooking away and comfortable. He is not only a great chef, but a really warm and down to earth person. You can tell he loves what he does and it shows in his food. Aside from the fantastic herbed zucchini goat cheese appetizer that was scarfed down by everyoe rather quickly, we had the best kabocha squash soup I have ever had and grilled sea bass on a quinoa pilaf that was to die for. (My mouth is watering as I write this!) I had told Sat that I was going to do my own hors d'oeuvres and had bought some cheese and fruit spreads, baguette, grapes, etc. Sat offered to help me plate and arrange them and I wish I could channel him every time I entertain. My platters were gorgeous. I would (and will) hire Sat back in a heartbeat. I'm planning already......

Working within our budget, Stephanie created an appetizer menu that delighted our wedding guests. Stephanie stepped in with only a few days before our event and delivered all the items early. Before leaving Stephanie checked in with us to see if she had met our needs. We would hire her again in a heartbeat.

A Plus Catering did a fantastic job for my New Year's Eve/50th birthday party. Jennine sourced all the rentals and the DJ. Everything was delivered and picked up as requested. Full cost including rentals, DJ, bartender and two servers was kept within my budget. With Jennine providing everything needed I was able to relax in Hawaii, returning home late on the 30th. Everyone arrived timely, we had delicious appetizers and music playing before the guests arrived. Hot appetizers, drinks and a champagne toast at midnight! Thank you for making this happen Jennine ❤️

As a event coordinator I have worked with Steve and the folks at DNL Catering on many special occasions. We have worked together on wedding and baby showers, brunches, wedding receptions, work Christmas parties and anniversary parties. They always provide a menu to your request and the playing of the food is always on beautiful plates and dishes, not aluminum trays. There are always compliments on the foods from the guests. We are always a happy with the selections. Their website makes it easy to browse their menu and I always receive a reply promptly when I submit an event request online. DNL Catering is on my preferred vendor list when I meet with future clients. I have used them in my own home numerous times. They are my 'go to' caterers for any event.

Richmond Main Street was one of the first catering jobs that Quiche and Carry ever did. Deborah was great. She was very attentive to us as customers and wanted to make sure that she got it right. The quiches were delicious. She is very creative and knows how to mix flavors. I had never tried a dessert quiche before and was a bit skeptical but it was fantastic. I would highly recommend her. Although it was her first job she was great. We have used her since that first time and will continue to use her. Yum!

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!)

Graham made our Christmas a delight! The dinner was a highlight of our day and we didn't have to do anything. He made and served a delicious dinner for 10 (including my twin toddlers) and it was completely carefree. I will definitely be working with him again!

The vegetarian meal that Grace catered for us at my home for my 70th birthday was superb. Fantastic artichoke appetizer, main course of 3 items that blended in flavors beautifully, and tiramisu that she made for dessert. She worked quietly, served, and then cleaned up. Very high recommendation!

Dawn and Marty were simply amazing. Marty is the chef and is more passionate about food then any chef I've ever met. He went beyond the extra mile to prepare amazing food for our wedding. The quality of the food and the the caliber of service provided by Dawn was outstanding. We live over 300 miles away from where the wedding was held so we had to hire our caterer remotely. We were worried about that at first, but Dawn put us completely at ease. She arranged for a site visit and then a private tasting at their facility. That was AMAZING! Appetizers, main courses, desert AND wine. What a great preview. Dawn helped us coordinate our order with the rental company and gave lots of helpful tips. Marty accommodated a special request my bride wanted which was to replace the traditional wedding cake with a tiered 60 cup Creme Brûlée desert tower! Wow... incredible. I heard several guest snuck two helpings :) Dawn and Marty were not just Caterers, they became family to us as they helped make the day a huge success! We would absolutely recommend their service to others and will use them again!

Lucas was the consummate professional all around. I truly enjoyed working with him - especially on such short notice. He was quick to respond in the planning stages. As for the meal, our group loved it. He cooked a spectacular prime rib roast with roasted vegetable. The homemade pasta with the saffron sauce was delicious. The amuse bouche and dessert were wonderful complements to the main courses. His server, Angel, was great, as well. I would highly recommend Lucas to anyone. Thanks for making our evening spectacular.

Catered our New Years party for 16. Appetizers and food were excellent. Specializes in veggie, but did a meat course for us. All ingredients fresh, organic and gluten free. The gnocchi was to die for!

I didn’t take pictures to show you guys but Cheri did an excellent job on my fiancé’s and my dinner for two. Not only did the food taste great but the set up was very nice. We had no hesitation hiring her for our upcoming June 2019 wedding! She will give you quality food for an affordable price. Not to mention she also has other vendors if your looking to have her company cater your wedding. She puts time and detail into her creations. I definitely recommend her.

GREAT SERVICE We got married yesterday and had to post a review immediately because Affordable Chef was so great! Chef Mark was punctual in replying to my questions before the big day, which, as an out-of-town bride, was very reassuring! At the last minute, Chef Mark was unable to attend the reception, but his on-site chef made delicious food, and the staff were phenomenal! There was one staff member in particular who took an interest in my Husband and I. She told us that we were her "celebrities for the day," made sure we ate appetizers before we walked in, escorted us to the buffet first, and was constantly checking on our drinks. She also took an interest in our families, leading many people to tell us how amazing she was! The bartender Chef Mark sent was also lovely, knew her stuff, and made our signature cocktails perfectly! All in all, a great experience and a company we would trust our next big event to!
