On 12-17-15, the Employees' Union of the State Bar of California hired Chef Marcel for our Holiday Luncheon. Chef Marcel and his staff came on time, set up quickly, and were very professional. The food was delicious and they were able to serve over 100 employees in less than an hour, and clean up and pack up quickly. Our luncheon was a huge success! I have received nothing but positive comments from my Union members. I highly recommend Chef Marcel and we will definitely use his services again! Thank you, Lita Abella, President Employees' Union of the State Bar of California

Jose catered our company holiday luncheon (70 people) in Ontario, CA. He delivered for free which was nice since he came all the way from Lake Elsinore....furthermore, he came a couple of weeks before the event as well to bring us food samples! The reason we decided on Jose was because he had so many options on the menus and for him having the lowest price, we were able to order the most food in comparison to other caterers. Not to mention the food is delicious! Everyone in the company was complimenting how well flavored everything was. He is very professional, friendly, and extremely accommodating. We will definitely be using him for future years! Thank you Jose :-)

THANK YOU, Zen Craft for an incredible event last night. My partner and I cannot express enough how seamlessly delightful the entire experience working with Zen Craft has been (from bidding process, to phone consult w/ Michael, to follow-up w/ Barrett, to day-of execution, the incredible service of Chef Eric and our server Dennis, and of course the delicious FOOD). We wanted to express that our server Dennis went completely ABOVE and BEYOND the entire night. In addition to our catered order, we purchased some snacks on our own; cheeses, crackers, chips, dips, etc. At the final minutes of setup, Dennis stepped in and plated all the snacks (and there were a lot) beautifully and refilled it throughout the night. He also pitched in when our housekeeper was 'in the weeds' with trash and bussing glassware all while he continued to serve Chef Eric's delicious and gorgeous food. The party would not have been the immense success it was without his efforts.

We live in Laguna Niguel, and Madkins Catering was on time and I remember saying to the waitstaff, "omg, there's still more food?! Needless to say there was so much food. Madkins Catering was upfront with me in the very beginning explaining how much of each appetizer or food item I'd actually be getting which is great. I think we adjusted the amounts a few times because I thought it was going to be too much food lol, and it ended up being still too much food.... But who's complaining? :-) My guests were very pleased with the meal and left on a very very full stomach. This company is very nice and professional and delivered exactly what I wanted. I forgot to do a review at the time of the event, but the event was about 2 weeks ago. Everyone please try them, the food is delicious and at a great price!

Susan catered our daughter's confirmation party. She was excellent and the food was amazing. She was professional. We had brunch that included bacon, buttermilk biscuits, cheese enchilada, french toast, breakfast potatoes, fruit and ham and swiss breakfast pie. Both kids and adults loved everything. I strongly recommend her.

San Francisco City Hall for a wedding reception has many rules and regulations as it is a government building and requires a lot of security and supervision. In addition to that, there isn't a kitchen on site so a tent is required as well as all rental equipment. Chef Mark and his group truly went above and beyond for our event. My husband does not like seafood at all but after our tasting, he was so impressed with the fish that he even considered having the fish as his entree for our wedding. Our guests were so impressed by our appetizers and dinner. We were assured restaurant quality and I wasn't surprised when all of our guests complimented us on how delicious the food was. It was catered specifically to us and Chef Mark and Roy spent time with us discussing what we would like for ourselves and our guests. Everything was tailored specifically to our celebration and that is truly a representation of us for the night. It was more than we could have asked for. We can't thank you enough for this. My initial concern was that Mark Kearney's Group is based from LA whereas our wedding in San Francisco but the communication was always frequent and Roy was very responsive and caring about our concerns. From start to finish they always assured us that they truly wanted to make sure our special night went without any concerns and they were on our side. Our event did not go without any bumps and when I found out from our wedding coordinator that a broken stove was delivered, I just couldn't believe that Chef Mark and his crew was able to deliver such wonderful meals to our guests under such a stressful situation. It's not the events that go flawlessly that are impressive but the ones that have a lot of obstacles that are impressive. I had absolutely no idea the kind of stress that must have been involved and our coordinator only told us afterwards so we had no idea on the day of. It is truly a mark of their professionalism. The thing is, I was already so impressed with all the other details that Chef Mark went out of his way to take care of for us. He made sure that a bottle of champagne was saved for us. When appetizers came around he specifically made sure my favorite came to me directly. When he flew up for our walk through, he took the time to take a picture of my husband and me because he was excited for us. We never requested any of these, but he just did them because he cares. His execution of the night was perfect as far as I am concerned and did not go unnoticed by ALL of our other vendors. EVERYONE was very impressed and I am so incredibly grateful and thankful for him and Roy and the rest of their team. You guys are amazing and we can't thank you enough!! We love you!

Jordan is an excellent chef and caterer. He produces food that is way beyond the standard catering services. If you want cookie cutter catering go with someone else. If you want really great food at a great price stop on by or use his catering.

Kieth, owner of Haute Productions was wonderful! I hired Haute Productions for my clients 60th birthday event. The food was amazing delicious! Kieth worked with me to match what my client wanted. There was no limits in our request. The guests raved about the mixed vegetables, seriously order them they wonderful. The chicken was moist the sauces were full of flavor. The spread also included another guest favorite, honey butter. Everyone was satisfied. I will defiantly be keeping Haute Productions on file for future clients and look forward to working with Kieth again. Thank you!

We hired Edmond to cater a dinner for our friends during our housewarming party. The food was excellent! Everyone from our party kept commenting how delicious everything was. Edmond was really friendly and responsive anytime we had questions or had to change anything last minute. I really appreciated his flexibility with changes we made to the number of people in our party. All in all it was a pleasure to work with him. The cheesecake was fantastic!

Though I was only looking for a drop-off service, Joseph ended up coming with a staff of 2 and making most of the food fresh in my kitchen. There was plenty of food and their service was fantastic. All my guests had a lovely time.
