My sister told me that "no one remembers the food at a weddings!" However after she had the food of Chef Pete she told my mom, "I was wrong- because people will definitely remember THIS dinner!" Everyone was commenting on how good the food was! We even had a diverse range of dietary restrictions in the crowd. Pete made me feel confident in his catering services from day 1. He was great about calling on the phone and then following up with email for final quote. The food was exceptional especially for a wedding of 80 people! Pete also had great staff who everyone commented on. They had matching outfits and looked very professional. Definitely hire Pete Coleman if you want the wedding dinner of your dreams. Oh and this was all the week of the fires and he was super flexible about last minute changes to our venue and to our date. He was seriously the best. Thank you Chef Pete!

Had to take this time to Thank Jennine and A Plus Catering. For coming to my needs so quickly, and so efficiently. We were down to one day until our event and she showed great professionalism and expertise. That truly helped my event become a great success. We had various appetizers and entrees. The event favorites were the meatballs, grilled chicken alfredo and for desert we had the lemon tarts .I will be glad to recommend A Plus Catering to all my business and social acquaintances. We have had various functions throughout the years and have never saw the proficiency that this company showed. They also provided all dinnerware and set up. So once again Thanks A Plus Catering .

Planning for my wedding was stressful at times, but Aliki definitely made catering food from them easy. The process from tasting to the day of the wedding was smooth, and they took care of everything that we needed for us: table linens, servers, and drinks. Pretty much anything that you need done at the reception or related to food services they will handle it for you. They charge very fair and their food taste amazing!

Hi had the pleasure of selecting Chet to prepare a menu and work my Friendsgiving event which was my first time starting a tradition with my friends. From Chet's initial response to my quote request through the end of my event, the services provided were first class! Chet worked with me on my menu and I felt that he truly listened and took my vision into consideration when delivering my sample menu. I was extremely nervous since in the past, I would always be the one to prepare meals for my guest however, this year I wanted to do something different allowing me the opportunity to spend time with my guest instead of slaving in the kitchen. Chet checked in with me a few days prior to my event to confirm final details and then it was show time. He showed up on time as expected with everything needed along with a helper and the magic began. I am very satisfied with the outcome. From the taste and flavors of the food, the presentation, the hospitality Chet and his crew showed my guest, the clean up, to Chet's willingness to do more than expected (setting up tableware and more). A+ to Chet. He will certainly be my go to for future events in need of catering. Well done!

Dani was very pleasant to work with and patient with me (and my group) while I figure out the process, as this is our first time doing catering event, in a city all the way on the other side of the country. Her food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful! Hopefully she will have us back if we are going to do something similar next year!

Aurora Catering is fantastic! I have now used them for 4 wonderful events. But let me set the stage for my first experience with Aurora. . . . . My wedding day; Let me put it this way, our limo caught fire on the way to our wedding (nothing to do with Aurora), we were trapped on a mountain amidst a beginning forest fire and couldn't make it to our wedding destination. We ended up being married on the side of the road while the fire fighters & helicopters battled the now raging fire. I give you this background so you can have an idea of our state of mind at the time. Meanwhile, Marty, Dawn & Crew are down the mountain preparing our reception, having no idea what is happening to us. Amazingly we ended up only being about 5 minutes late to our reception. The next 5+ hours were magical. Aurora turned a disaster of a wedding into the most fantastic night of our lives. Every dish was exquisite, the guests raved, we were all in Heaven. I couldn't have asked for a more perfectly executed event! My bosses at the time, were so impressed they booked them for our company Holiday party and Aurora wowed us once again! In fact, they have already booked them for next years Holiday party as well. That all being said, pre-event, Marty was wonderful with creative menu ideas and assistance. With Marty, it is a labor of love and he puts it all into every event he does, and it shows. Dawn went out of her way to offer suggestions with linens, centerpieces, rentals etc. She thought of things I would never have considered, but needed to. Aurora as a whole is a very professional company with a heart. All in all, they are terrific! I highly recommend them!

I am so happy I chose Green Chow Down for our catering service. The owner was extremely helpful, professional, and courteous. They have a very quick response time and made sure to adjust to all our needs. The food, service and presentation were all exceptional and we still have guest speaking on the delicious yet healthy meals Green Chow Down prepared. I highly recommend booking this restaurant 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!

Don't look any further: LL Services is the BEST! They catered a women's luncheon in my home, and I found their friendly manner, professionalism and responsiveness to be unmatched. They offered flexible menu options with fresh, creative and delicious selections. My guests went back not only for seconds, but thirds, and they all left with a business card for their own catering needs. Don't pass up the opportunity to have them cater your next event.

Basic Catering is much more than catering company, it is a full service event company. Aristotle says "if a man does many things, they cannot do one thing well." That's not the case with Basic Catering. I hired them for a small wedding reception, and I was very impressed with their service. I'll list them as follows: 1. All my guests raved about the food. It was perfectly cooked and the quantity was worth the value. 2. They rent out their own party rentals (tables, silverware, plates, etc.) at a cost cheaper than the competitors. This was significant savings for me with no sacrifice on the quality. This also made clean-up a lot easier. I was not worried about the clean-up, but it did save me on venue costs. (They also do flowers) 3. Lastly, the most impressive aspect of Basic Catering is their professionalism. There will always be something missing or something that goes wrong. Their team is extremely resourceful, from their planners (Ben) to the people executing (Carie) and the waitstaff -- I am a big fan of resourcefulness. They thought of things I missed, and if something was wrong they made it right. They are quick and smart, and know how to get things done. They assisted in making one of the most significant days of my life a wonderful event. Thanks Ben. You did a fantastic job coordinating.

Daniel was an amazing caterer. He was extremely prompt and came with most of the catering gear he needed (which is good because I have very few kitchen tools). Our entire group loved the food: cheese/meat course, tuna tartar, couscous, salmon, and tiramisu. It was delicious! And as a bonus, we did not need to clean up :)

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.

I hired Olive for my birthday party and they are hands down the best catering experience I've ever had for reasonable prices. The value simply can't be beat! We had the Moroccan salmon, a lamb dish and some side options and they were all delicious. Both Arkadi and Elinor went an ve and beyond to make this experience go smooth. I will certainly be asking for services in the future for both private parties and work related events.
