Chef Rocco catered a Bridal Shower I hosted. It was a great treat to work with Chef Rocco - he was responsive, on time and made a beautiful lunch for our party. Definitely would recommend Rocco to others. Thanks!
I had hired Taqueria Cazadores to cater a reception to follow a memorial service for my father. Evan worked with me far ahead of time, worked with the funeral director, and made this catering event effortless for me. After speaking with him in the beginning of my search for a caterer, I felt sure that I was in good hands. The icing on the cake was that the food was absolutely off-the-charts delicious! The food, the presentation, and the service were all phenomenal, and even surpassed my expectations. Thank you Evan and Crew!
Sat catered my wedding of over 600 hundred people. It was a delight to work with such a professional because it allowed my wife and I to focus on our special day.
A Plus Catering catered for my wedding in March 2016. They arrived on time and went the extra mile to make sure that everything went well and were fantastic! Their staff and Jeanine were great to work with.
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.
My friend recently celebrated her 50th birthday. Her wish? To have a catered dinner at home where she could relax and enjoy a wonderful evening of food, vino and friends. My decision to go with Rainbow Chefs was the BEST CHOICE! They worked with me to create the menu which the chef cooked to PERFECTION! It was a joy to see the guests "ooohh" and "aahhh" as each dish was brought out...Having Rainbow Chefs prepare, serve and clean up allowed the hostesses (me and my friend) to enjoy the event too! It was truly a magical night...I highly recommend them!
Angela catered my wedding of about 80 people. Her food was amazing. We got the portobello wellington, malfati, and roasted vegetables. The wellington was wonderful, the malfati good, and the vegetables were okay. The garden salad was amazing, and the best part of the meal. Unfortunately, there were issues with the kitchen and her staff was unable to provide food timely. Three tables waited approximately and hour and fifteen after everyone else had received their food. I was disappointed that I hired 4 servers and they had to pull my bartender to serve food. Which left our event in a situation where the event manager had to oversee the bar. Overall the food is really wonderful, but there were some structural issues.
Lucas catered a birthday dinner for a rowdy group of ladies celebrating a birthday, and everything about the experience was great! From initial communication, working out the details (including menu changes at our request), logistics (our party was in a hotel, we were late to the meeting time, etc. but all handled with ease), and of course the food - which was delicious and beautifully presented. Would hire Lucas again in a heartbeat. Thanks again!!
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!
Gimanelli's is absolutely the best. I've used them three times for three different types of events, including my wedding with over 150 people. Each time they have been excellent. They are timely, delicious, inexpensive and friendly. Everyone loves the people that have served and cooked our food, and more importantly. Everyone loves the food! They are the best!
Mary Ellen did a fantastic job catering my husband's 50th birthday party. She gave lots of useful advice for setting up the space to make things work. Her crew arrived and prepared fantastic food. they cleaned up at the end. Everything was professional and yummy.
Thus far we have only completed the tasting, but Chef Judi & Chef Cyprus nailed it. They are wonderful listeners and have a great palate. My fiancee and I are complete foodies, therefore the food at our wedding is truly what the reception is about. We are confident that Taste-Full Events will provide our guests with the culinary experience we want them to have.
We hired Mark to cater brunch for our wedding, and we were very impressed! He replies in a timely manner to questions, requests, and concerns. From the moment he reached out in response to my project on Thumbtack, Mark worked hard to accommodate our needs. He made sure that we felt good about the menu before we booked him, and had us over for a tasting. Additionally, he noticed an item we didn't originally include on the menu and graciously added it to the meal (potatoes!). Many of our guests made comments to us about how much they enjoyed the food, and everyone (about 130 people) had as much to eat as they wanted with food left over. My only regret was that as the bride I didn't have the chance to eat as much of that AMAZING French toast as I wanted!
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.
From the tasting to the delivery to the actual wedding reception meal- every aspect- was excellent! Carmen is an incredible chef, Hector a fantastic delivery set-up person, and Gustavo a professional reliable business owner!
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!
I was tasked to hire a caterer for my companies end of the year event. Funky Dog Catering was able to quickly serve over 200 of my coworkers and the dogs were delicious! They were friendly and professional, we will definitely be working with them again!
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.
While We has to put are wedding plans on half to to an unexpected move. Karla was wonderful to work with and and here price was fair and had no problem working with my food allergy to me having an unexpected changes. If I am ever in the area and need a catering service she will be my first call.
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.
