Sat was absolutely amazing! Very easy to communicate with, accommodated all of our wishes and dietary restrictions, made generous portions and absolutely delicious food. And after dinner, he left the kitchen even cleaner than it was when he got there. Would always book him again and recommend him to anyone who would like a perfect private chef experience.

Debbie was so great to work with. From our first interaction she was professional and on top of things -- asking all of the relevant questions and even helping me think of things I failed to think of for my event. On the day of the event, she arrived right on schedule, greeting me with a warm smile. She set up the most wonderful breakfast and lunch. I look forward to working with her again in the future.

Andrea handled so many unbelievable misfortunes so very well and took care of our team in an outstanding way. I received rave reviews on the food and beautiful centerpiece for dinner. Her food is delicious and her passion shows through in both her food and work ethic. She was extremely flexible in creating a menu that works for our guests and within our budget. The Senorita Gourmet experience is a special one; it would have been good as-is for any of my personal parties though we had to pare it down a tiny bit for our corporate guests. Overall, a wonderful experience and I'll definitely connect with her for future catering events!

Deborah catered breakfast for 170 people in our office. She talked through the event with me and helped to determine the best option for food (a standing event so needed something quick and easy for guests to grab and eat with their hands). She arrived on time and had everything set for our guests, and we had plenty of food for everyone. We'd definitely recommend her!

I had the pleasure of having Chet Chase cater for me in Florida. Chet catered numerous corporate events for me in my showroom in the Design Center of The Americas. He could cater a luncheon for 10 or a dinner for 25.Everyone always raved about him. His creations were delicious and his presentation superb. Chet also catered personal dinner parties in my home. He took care of everything from planning the menu to selecting party favors for me. Chet also helped me with my diet. He prepared lunches and dinners for me that were tasty and nutritious.I am not an easy person to please but when it comes to Chet Chase he is tremendous when it comes to cuisine and planning

Sean did an outstanding job for my dinner party of 4. I have never hired a personal chef before using Thumbtack and it has always been on my bucket list. This was the perfect experience and such a great alternative to a dinner out at a restaurant with friends! As for the chef-I highly recommend Sean. He provided me with several dining options with local fresh ingredients and was able to accommodate dietary restrictions. Above all, he was such a pleasure to be around! I can't wait until my next dinner with Chef Sean.

Graham cooked for me at 10 year wedding anniversary which was outdoors at a private location in Stinson Beach on October 24, 2015. I met with Graham maybe a month before my event. I was very specific about everything I wanted for my special day. We had a few kids and a total of about 50 people so I wanted to make sure that he was a good fit for me and my guest of families. I did not want a fancy foie gras chef although I think Graham is in that league. I wanted someone who would cook a good meal and I wanted to be satisfied at the end of the day. Graham met with me and my mom and made us a sample from my Mediterranean menu. After spending a little time with Graham, I knew I wanted to hire him. He was charming and professional and his food was delicious. At my party he helped make my event go smoothly. He made 3 different salads, grilled chicken, salmon and beef kabobs for my lunch party. It was a beautiful day and my guest were so happy with the meal and also found Graham to be very charming! He is gem! Thank you so much Graham! I hope we can have you cook for us again in the future.

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!)

I hired Grace for a small intimate bday dinner and the food was amazing! My family loved all the dishes and Grace was such a friendly and kind host. She explained what each dish was and gave us all enough time between dishes to really enjoy the food and savor it. The strawberry dessert at the end was my favorite. I really enjoyed my bday dinner. Thanks Grace!

This caterer prepared lunch for 30 people on Memorial Day for us. We found them on Thumbtack and we’re glad we went with them! Everything was as expected or better! First of all, their smoked ribs were AMAZING. Everything else (chicken skewers-very tender, deviled eggs with smoked bacon, garlic and honey meatballs, grilled corn, vegan pasta salad, arugula salad) was delicious as well. Everyone should add their Bourbon Banana Pudding for dessert, because it was so good! I love Paul Martin's banana cream pie, but this pudding was even better! I would definitely go back to them again. Too bad I forgot to take some photos!! And yes, they are very professional. Just tell Matt what you are looking for and he'll come up with a menu for you. Easy!

We hired Ania when we were visiting the Napa Valley in 2012. We rented a home for the week and asked Ania to cook dinner in our kitchen. We coordinated what day, discussed menu items and that was it...easy peasy! We arranged access to our house, went wine tasting and came home to find Ania in the kitchen! She had gone to the market, started the appetizers for our arrival and finished the main course while we relaxed on the patio. Every bite was divine! Ania is very personable and easy going. We never felt like she was in the way, and always made sure our every need was met. Can't go wrong with this special lady! We keep in touch and will see her again on our next trip to Napa.

Excellent experience; Annicette put together an appropriate menu quickly and with no fuss, was easy to communicate with, and executed efficiently. We were late getting back to the house but she let herself in and got started on the prep work and was able to adjust the timing of the meal. All the food was delicious and Annicette was a delight to be with. Highly recommended.

Chef Eileen was the greatest! This was a first time experience for us, hiring a personal chef for a small group of 8. It was a bachelorette party and the best touch to start an otherwise amazing weekend. Chef Eileen was professional, extremely sweet and most of all our 4 course dinner was delicious! The entire group was happy!! We will certainly do business again in the future and I believe she even gained new clients from our experience. Thank you Chef Eileen!!! All the best, Jenett

Niko truly has a passion for cooking and and spreading her joy to others. She not only makes delicious food conscious meals, she also makes it easy. She breaks it down to a beautiful art that is simple and sustainable. I live in a co-housing community and I reached out to Niko for assist with preparing a vegan meal for 30 individuals. She came in with such a great spirit and desire to teach. It was a joy to say the least. She helped me prepare a squash lasagna layered with homemade sauces ranging from pesto and fresh tomato mushroom sauce, to vegan ricotta and colorful potatoes. She used a combination of produce that was fresh, affordable and seasonal. She topped it off with a basil, garlic bruschetta and creamy cashew caesar salad with roasted capers.

Alta has catered many many wonderful meals for me, and it was not easy. What I mean is that my guests include vegans, vegans gluten free, reg gluten free, vegetarians, some only eat chicken, some only eat fish and some are allergic to almost anything. Magically, Alta and Alta Cuisine creates a menu where everyone is happy. Plus the food is consistently fabulous. I would recommend Alta and her catering company without hesitation. YUM YUM for Alta Cuisine!!
