I would definitely recommend Rocco for any of your catering/chef needs. Rocco helped me customize a menu for my husbands birthday dinner and was able to accommodate exactly what I needed and cater to all of my special requests. Rocco arrived on time and made the entire experience very enjoyable. He educated us on what we were eating and the preparation of it, and he was such a friendly guy, sharing many stories with us. Not to mention the food was amazing! I had salmon and my husband had lamb and both dishes were absolutely delicious. Rocco cleaned up as he went as well. It was awesome being able to have the restaurant experience without having to lift a finger or a foot. Rocco is awesome and we thank him for allowing us to have such a memorable night :)

Roddy and a cook helped with my daughter's wedding. They did an awesome job. Everyone raved about the perfectly cooked tri-tip and other foods. Rowdy stayed an extra hour to completely clean up the event as I had underestimated the time required.

I absolutely recommend Kristine and her team. She met up with my husband and I at our venue about a month before our wedding. This was a several hour drive for her which we really appreciated. She took the time to go through every detail, not only about the catering component, but the entire wedding. She clearly has a great deal of experience in the business and we got a lot of great ideas and input from her. She also was very much our advocate when dealing with the difficult bar manager at our venue. The day of the wedding she and her team set everything up perfectly. Her staff was amazing. They were all so sweet and stayed to the very end of the night making sure everything was cleaned and finished. Again I completely recommend Kristine, our wedding was amazing and a huge success which she had a big part of!

Wow!! Just Wow!! Chef Judith Green catered our company holiday party last Friday and it was amazing. First, and very impressive, she showed up with an army of chefs and servers. They layed out two tables of bountiful delight! Cheeses, hummus, herbs from her garden. Whole Salmon, Asian sliders, veggies, and incredible desserts!! Our CEO was so impressed. She made me and our company look good. Not only will I hire her again, I plan to recommend her to everyone in need of a caterer. Thank you so much!!

I would never hesitate to recommend him Mark and his team recently catered my daughters wedding reception at our home in Capitola. From beginning to end his relaxed nature + excellent execution + delicious food enabled the guests as well as the hosts to make the event memorable and relaxed at the same time. His experience came in handy when planning the event and he took care of everything from start to finish. My wife and I have thrown many parties over the years and this was the first where we called out for help and it was well worth it. Thanks again to Mark and I would never hesitate to recommend him or call on him again.

Tonya was very warm from our first contact. She definitely listened to what I needed and quickly put together some ideas. She is very flexible and never lets on that you are taking up her (very precious and little) free time. The evening of the event: I finally met Tonya and Israel. They went right to work with very little direction from me (their staff had to do final set up of the tables). My guests raved about the presentation and quality of the hors d’ouevres. Dinner was beautiful, delicious, and service was lovely. Just to top it off, no other caterer/chef service we have used has left our kitchen and home in such great shape. I can’t wait to book the team again.

I have nothing but amazing things to say about Vanessa and her team. To start, I booked her super last minute (literally the day before I needed her). I was scrambling to pull together and offsite meeting that got moved 200 miles away due to the tragic fires happening in Northern California. Vanessa came to my aid by helping me brainstorm a fun, interactive activity for the team at their offsite remote location. She set up an amazing wine and whiskey tasting event that the team just loved! Everything was tailored to perfection! She event created customized wine glasses that each member of the team got to take home with them. To make matters more complex, the location where the event was happened to be located in a remote with limited (to no) resources to catering, grocery stores, etc. Did I mention that I was coordinating this entire event remotely ?!?! Vanessa stepped up and offered to not only provide an awesome team building event, but picked up dinner, plate it to perfection, and bartended for the reminder of the evening. This was phenomenal!!! Working with her was not only a joy, but easy and smooth. I can't wait to work with her again. You would be a fool not to book her 100x over!

Jeano has been amazing to work with! He is providing all the food and dessert for my wedding, happening this coming weekend, and so far, he has been flexible and accomodating to meet our needs and the needs of all our guests. He also took the time to meet with us to discuss and organize details of the event and help us figure out the best menu to make everything flow smoothly. I am confident everything will be as good as I am hoping when the day comes this saturday . . but stay tuned! "The event was a complete and beautiful success! Jeano went above and beyond to help make sure the event went smoothly. Despite not planning to help prepare the food (toss salads, plate, items) once it left his kitchen, he jumped into prep work the moment he realized he was needed to make sure guests were satisifed with everything. The appetizers, entrees, sides and desserts were all beautifully prepapred, fresh and delicious. I would definitely recommend Jeano's services for any event as I will definitely be going back to him for my next one. Thanks Jeano!!"
