Chef Rocco was very professional to work with, came up with a creative menu suggestions and most importantly, the food he made and served was delicious. He even made an awesome carrot cake for dessert! In addition, there was no mess to clean up afterwards. Thank you Chef Rocco!
Evan was WONDERFUL through the whole process & event! He catered at our "Mexican" family reunion at an outdoor park. Food was one of the most important things to get for our reunion and having many good Mexican cooks in the family, Evan came through! There were so many COMPLIMENTS about how GREAT the food was! We had the Mexican Taco Bar with Churros added for dessert. His roasted meats for the tacos were so tasty with the grilled veggies and all the sides and garnishes, and those churros went real fast!

Sat cooked a delicious 3-course meal for two for a dinner date :). We had a lovely salad with local beets and goat cheese medallions, an Asian-style Halibut with lots of delicious veggies, and a seasonal fruit gallette for dessert. He gave me lots of menu options to look at and pick the style of food I like. He was also super nice and professional, and took care of everything - shopping, clean up, packing up the leftovers for us (!) etc. It was a magical evening thanks to Sat! I highly recommend his services and hope to hire him again.
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.
If I could give Sunshine Event 1,000 stars I would! They did an amazing job on everything. Face painting, décor and dessert table! I will definitely be using them in the future and telling all my friends! Thanks for making our event one to remember!!
We had a small dinner party (10 people) at our home and hired Rainbow Chefs to make the appetizer, dinner and dessert. It was amazing! We'll definitely recommend to all our friends and can't wait for our next event. Highly recommended!
Angela made our family a dinner. We are not gluten free or vegetarian normally, so it's an endorsement when our kids eat vegetarian. We had a cauliflower soup, a couple of different vegetarian items like stuffed mushrooms for the main meal and several dessert items. It was all delicious, but the things that were especially amazing were the fresh tomatoe tarts (gluten free-couldn't tell) and these strawberry and cream tartlets (different crust from the tomato.) We left the table fat and happy! I have also had her cream filled chocolate cupcakes on another occasion which were also spectacular.
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.
I hired In This Moment to cater my sunset/evening wedding this fall. They managed appetizers, dinner, cake cutting, and bartending. We went with a Mexican buffet and people were telling me during the evening they thought it was great idea and very delicous. (We also had a mariachi band during arrivals and ceremony to tie together a light theme.) The groom and I stole a few minutes to eat some dinner ourselves and agreed! Several mentioned that they loved that there was some great guacamole and chips to snack on immediately after the ceremony while people mingled & moved to the indoor reception area. Kristine herself is friendly, calm, and highly responsive. I was an anxious bride and she made things simple for me. I always felt better after checking in with her or seeking her guidance. I am glad Kristine was able to take on our nearly last minute request (2+ weeks out?) and help make our lightly Mexican themed/DIY wedding be fun experience for our friends and family. Thank you!
We recently hired Gimanelli's Catering to cater our daughter's wedding based on a personal recommendation and we were very pleased with the entire experience. The food was delicious, service outstanding, and presentation very elegant. From the preliminary tasting and excellent personal service provided by their senior event coordinator to the awesome wedding day team who were top notch at making sure every detail was covered according to our wishes, the special day our daughter dreamed of was perfect. They provide a full range of service options to choose from for any type of event, and we definitely recommend them if you are looking for a quality experience with a professionally run business.
Mary Ellen truly made me feel like my own guest at our anniversary party. The food was delicious and served with grace and style on my own serving platters. Her timing was just right so that no one felt rushed, but we kept to a prearranged schedule. The kitchen was spotless when she left. It was a great pleasure planning our event with Mary Ellen.
I have been to several of Judith's events and each one of them has amazed me. She works tirelessly on every detail from decor to dessert. She has a generous, warm spirit and will ensure that your event is remarkable.
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!
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.
Karla has cooked for our surf camp for 18 summers! She has been amazing how she whips up delicious food for our clients. The quality and punctuality have been excellent!
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!
Chris, this is the 2nd time we've had you cater our events and you do not disappoint! You're our "set-it and forget-it" caterer because you make it so simple for us. A special shout-out to your professional and courteous staff/helpers it truly makes you guys stand-out from other services we've used.
Working with Lalita was a dream! She catered my birthday dinner for a small group of girlfriends at a getaway in Watsonville. Lalita was always very responsive to my inquiries and helped me craft an amazing menu for my budget. She was professional throughout my entire interaction with her. And the food!! We can't stop raving about the food. All the dishes she cooked for us were out of this world in terms of flavor and richness. The chicken wings were to die for! They were crispy and light, sweet and tangy -- probably one of the best Asian chicken wings I've ever had. The noodles were light and packed with fresh seafood. The panang curry with the coconut cream sauce was so rich and complex; all my guests said that was the best dish. Lalita's attention to detail was impeccable. Her service was attentive. She has a very sweet personality and we enjoyed talking to her about her food and her journey as a chef-entrepreneur. The dinner party went off without a hitch and we are grateful to have had Lalita be a part of it. I am definitely going to hire her again to cater dinners and parties for me. It was such a pleasure to work with Lalita.
It what can only be described as a limited and challenging environment, Rainbow Chefs provided a gourmet dinner for my executives that was truly exquisite. Everything about the process was handled well with great communication from Lana. I chose Rainbow Chefs after initial conversations with more than 20 caterers because I was convinced that she was really listening to me. Chef Nicholas created a masterpiece of a dinner that was enjoyed by everybody. It was the highlight of a long day.
