We were looking for catering services for our small and intimate wedding during December 2015. Food was a big part of the event, but we also had a limited budget, so we shopped around to find someone that would fit our needs. Pete understood our menu concept right away and was able to work with our budget. He didn't fuzz about small details that we wanted to incorporate and went above and beyond to make them happen. He even provided ideas on how to improve the overall experience, not just the food. We interviewed lots of chefs and catering companies and we couldn't be happier about working with Pete. Our foodie friends and family members praised the food, the presentation was extraordinary and the service was very professional. Pete also provided support for the drinks, bringing with him a great mixologist that crafted creative drinks for the crowd. Finally, the next morning Pete prepared brunch for guests that spent the night at the venue (and ourselves) and even tho some things did not go as planned for him (the professional oven broke down!), he was able to have everything ready flawlessly by the time we woke up. Thank you Pete for taking care of such important part of our event! We are looking forward to working with you again.
Our dinner party was a success. We had a family 90th birthday party for my father-in-law. Sat created a great dinner menu for us and it tasted wonderful. Everyone was full and happy at the end of the party. Hiring Sat allowed us to enjoy the conversations and not work so hard. This was our first catered event with a chef. I look forward to the next one. Thank you Sat.
Working with Debbie was great. She helped me pull off a surprise party for my wife and the food was amazing. I highly recommend her for any catering event.
Our group had a very nice experience with A Plus catering! The guests thoroughly enjoyed her delicious food and the party was a huge success. We will plan on using them again for a future event!
Stephanie was perfect for catering our dinner - thank you so much!
I never met Deborah in person but had good conversations with getting my event catered. She was very responsive to my requests and questions. Ours was a drop-off event. The food was DELICIOUS. We had grilled garlic lemon chicken, 5 quiches, a huge (almost too huge) green salad, a beautiful fruit salad, lemonade and cookies for 28 people and there was plenty of food...only had salad and cookies leftover. Her employee brought our food and set it all up very creatively considering we were at a camp lodge! I would definitely recommend Quiche and Carry for your catering. Deborah was very professional and we were all happy with our event.
I had a great experience with hiring Kitchenina as our caterers for an event with 40 people. The communication was always prompt, polite and friendly. They did a great job on the day of the event to ensure that the food was delivered on time (despite the traffic/weather conditions) and made my job as the event organizer much easier. I would definitely work with Kitchenina again in the future, and regret that I did not take photos of the food! (Thanks for the brownies as well!)
Had a Christmas Party for 30 people in my home. Food was prepared on-site. As guests arrived first and caterers second, the kitchen was full of guests nibbling on appetizers. Alisa and her assistant blended right in working around guests. The food was delicious! All guests commented about how wonderful the food was and how pleasant Alisa and her assistant were. Clean-up was provided, and they did a great job at that too. It made enjoying guests and myself fantastic! Planning for the event was seamless, organized and expeditious! When I have another party for my 50th this year, Passionate Plates and Alisa will be on "speed-dial"!
I've known Grace for many years. I have been over to her house for home cooked meals that were truly gourmet, and delicious. She also prepared some food and sold it from her home. On the level of catering for large parties, I went to our friend Dave's party last month were Grace did the catering. The food was flawless, delicious, with great presentation, and great variety. I strongly recommend Grace for catering your events.
I'm late in reviewing but Chez Gautier is wonderful, truly a class act. We first used him for a private dinner event for our CEO in 2015 and he's been our go-to guy for similar intimate dinners every since. Fresh ingredients, delicious food, attendees always compliment and inquire after our chef. He's a breeze to work with and partners with us to create a menu that will please the event planner, our higher up execs, and the guests we're inviting. Would recommend him and his team every time.
We had a corporate event catered. I liked that the vendor had good communication, never had a problem getting a hold of them. Price was competitive, and they were flexible. The food tasted good, however, just noticed some products were not equally sized and so some people got big bites while others had smaller bites. Overall, good experience
A last minute event which Ania pulled off in amazing style, quality, and humor. One of my guests was a chef, and he loved her food. We don't come to Napa often but we will hire Ania again!
We contracted with John DeMartini to cater a team lunch at high school for 27 people. He was extremely easy to work with. He knew what we were looking for and several delicious options to choose. He delivered the food promptly, set it up quickly with disposable chaffing dishes which kept the food warm. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend John DeMartini catering for any event and look forward to working with him again in the future.
Angela was very helpful right from the beginning. Once she and I spoke, determined a budget, she proposed some wonderful selections, and the evening was divine. Having a few people who have gluten-free diets, the menu planning was extremely important to me - and every item was gluten free AND delicious! Angela is able to help rent anything you need, so that isn't a worry. She has a wonderful assistant who is warm and friendly. I would highly recommend Angela's business for your catering event.
Chef Tom catered my wedding. Everything was spectacular. Here we are 12 years later, and I still get friends and family talking about that great experience. It's probably why the marriage has lasted!
Elyse was quite simply amazing and the best vendor I worked with for my wedding. From the very beginning, she was very responsive and did everything to help me develop a menu for my wedding. Elyse also understood my budget and worked within my contraints..something I really appreciated as I noticed many vendors would quote one price but end up costing much more. She also went above and beyond on several instances, not only providing me with suggestions on rentals and vising the venue and helping me with a floor plan but also willing to offer a helping hand with anything I needed further assistance with. Elyse and her team were top notch - my guests raved about the food!! All the ingredients were high quality and you could taste the freshness and love that was put into the preparation. I would recommend Elyse and Brass Spatula for any Catering event and hope to use her services again.
Zachary created a wonderful event for me. The food was sophisticated and executed beautifully. He worked with me to craft a menu that would be special for all my guests including those with special diets. Thank you!
Oh my goodness, I was so, so impressed with Cheri's cooking. I've never, and I mean never, tasted a turkey that was as tender and flavorful as hers. I'm getting hungry right now just thinking of it. She catered our holiday party, and the depth and delight of all her amazing dishes tantalized all the guests. All her dishes we're cooked and baked to perfection. She's a genius in the kitechen, with a down-home, nurturing spirit to boot. I highly recommend Cheri for any catering event you're planning in the future. Your guest will rave that it's the best catered food they've ever had.
Dennis and his team were really awesome and professional! He catered our Startup Weekend event! The brisket, pulled pork, and BBQ tofu was so yummy!
Mise En Place is hands down one of the street caterers in the Bay Area. David’s is extremely creative and professional and food is excellent!
Arkadi is an excellent chef! The food is outstandingly delicious, the staff are so kind and nice, and the experience was great!
