Pete & his staff arrived excited , organized and ready to go- His staff were all very polite, professional and helpful with setting up for the event. The food was incredible, all our guests were amazed. It was a lovely experience. When they left, everything was cleaned up, and my kitchen was spotless. I would definitely recommend Peter Coleman Catering. DF Alamo, CA

Sat did a wonderful catering job for our luncheon of fifty people this past weekend. I was a little hesitant at first because I didn't know his work and he didn't have his website up and running. I'm glad I took a chance as he came through with shining colors.

Debbie and her Made with Love crew catered a last minute large event of 200 people for my office and I couldn't be happier. Debbie took care of all my needs and went out of her way to make sure everything we wanted we got. She was so friendly as was her staff and the food was fantastic. I highly recommend Made with Love Catering and know you won't be disappointed. Theresa N.

Richmond Main Street was one of the first catering jobs that Quiche and Carry ever did. Deborah was great. She was very attentive to us as customers and wanted to make sure that she got it right. The quiches were delicious. She is very creative and knows how to mix flavors. I had never tried a dessert quiche before and was a bit skeptical but it was fantastic. I would highly recommend her. Although it was her first job she was great. We have used her since that first time and will continue to use her. Yum!

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!

I appreciated how quick Aliki was to respond to my catering request and called to discuss my needs. Our party was strictly appetizers and Aliki provided a great variety of delicious options. The meatballs with lemon hummus were so tasty along with the dolmas, and caprese bites with a wonderful pesto dipping sauce. We would certainly use Kitchenina again for another party.

My husband forgot to tell me he had agreed to host a cocktail party for 40 guest only 8 days away. When I talked to Graham he said he was available and within a day he had a menu and some suggestions about the bar.Graham arrived at our apartment in S.F. 2 hours before the event and just made everything so easy and and gracious that the party seemed like it had been planned way in advance. Graham served small bites of very tasty canapes and wonderful french style sliders that satisfied everyone. The whole evening was a success from set up to clean up and I was able to enjoy being the hostess and not worry about anything. Graham makes eating good food a total joy and I look forward to catering future parties with him as the Chef. Carole

Matt was very nice and professional at all times. He showed up at the event I booked him for way before the event time to set up and to personally make sure everything was as it should be. He is really the whole gamit when it comes to catering. He obviously takes pride in what he does and it shows. As an events coordinator, he is the type of person I want to work with. I will definitely use him again for my clients events. Sheri A Touch of Class Entertainment

Rose catered the Chinese Historical Society Museum VIP re-opening party for us and did an absolutely fabulous job! I really appreciated how her communication during the entire process was very clear and prompt. Rose brought a great energy to the event, had wonderful staff working with her, and last but not least, the food was AMAZING!! I would definitely work with her again, and I recommend her services for any Bay Area organizations looking for a great catering experience. Thanks again Rose!

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.

Wanting to learn to cook lower calorie food that still had great flavor, I hired Zac to come to my home and teach in our kitchen. My husband is our (excellent) cook, I am not a cook (at fifty-something years old), presenting a bit of a challenge. Rising to the occasion, Zac planned a meal that read like the menu at French Laundry! Panic!There was no way I could prepare this meal. Zac said...Way! He met me at Sonoma Market to introduce me to fresh everything, not packaged anything! Back at our kitchen, the magic began and WOW! Probably one of the most delicious dinners I've ever had at home, and certainly rivaling 5 star restaurants. Our cooking and dining experience was nothing short of superb and better yet, not a dollop of butter or a drop of cream was used to create the fantastic soup, salad, and complex main course. Through Zac's exceptional knowledge of herbs and spices, he taught me to create extraordinary flavors to enhance the food, and not over power it. It was a brilliant evening of cooking! Zac is easy going, yet very assured, and his ability to communicate is second to none. Remarkable job by a talented young man who will be continuing to educate us in the kitchen and most assuredly catering events for us. Bravo, Zac...Bravo!

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.

We recently hired Eileen and her staff with What's Cookin to cater a backyard luau party. From beginning to end, she was very easy to work with. The bottom line is that her food was AMAZING! What a talent!! Our party guests raved about the dishes she prepared. Since the party was themed, we worked together to come up with the perfect selections for a summer luau. Her staff that worked the party with her were super friendly and smiley, professional, and instinctively knew how to "be there" for our guests needs. As the hosts of the party, my husband and I were able to focus entirely on our guests, which is exactly what we were looking for. We were all very impressed with everything, and are certain we found our new favorite caterer! Thanks Eileen and your staff for a job well done!

Basic Catering supported our recent Oktoberfest racecar show event and they hit it out of the park! They were easy to work with and very thorough during the planning process. And the onsite team was on-time, very professional and the food was so fresh and delicious, prepared right on site. Can't wait to work with them again. We've give them 10 stars if we could!

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 :)
