The overall experience was excellent. Food was great, clients and staff were very pleased with the meal and service. I especially appreciated the early arrival and the on time clean up. I would definitely recommend Gourmet Your Way for other catering events. My only suggestion would be to maybe add disposable containers for leftover items. Not every program/department within the county will have access to a kitchen area with supplies.

My friends and I were doing a weekend in San Diego, and hired Lilian to prepare our first meal for us at our Airbnb. She arrived on time, was super pleasant, and our meal was absolutely delicious. Highly recommended!

OMG, very exceptional service. Meal was on time, and well kept at serving temp, verified to me. The smell of the meal was very alluring and created anticipation. Then presentation of the meal was absolutely breath taking and well proportioned. Finally the flavors of the meal were even more gratifying. An outstanding experience for our first time. Very affordable and can adjust to all tastes and budgets. Will look forward to doing business again.

Rich did an excellent job bartending at our Holiday Party. He arrived early, dressed professionally, prepped the bar area, even ran out and got a few things we missed. He was very cordial with our guests and was knowledgeable enough to accommodated everyone's drink requests. Look forward to using his services next time !

My team and I had an offsite down in San Diego and Lavonne prepared a stunning meal for us. Before the dinner, we collaborated on the menu which was custom-made for our group. Lavonne had tons of great ideas of what to prepare and was flexible in working around some of our dietary restrictions. The appetizers of assorted crostinis were delicious, the burrata was a must-have, and the entire meal from the flank steak & coffee rubbed chicken to the apple crisp dessert were such a treat. She was even able to use some of the extra ingredients we had in our kitchen to add to our meal! This dinner was no doubt one of the highlights of our offsite and would highly recommend Lavonne to cater your next meal or event - delicious food plated beautifully and cooked with heart!

He is a great person to work with. He brings a positive attitude to what he does. Impressed with how he uses simple, organic and fresh ingredients to make delicious meals. He has this great bechamel sauce for lasagna! In fact, everything he has ever made for us was of excellent quality.

Keith prepared an amazing Thanksgiving feast for our employees. He brought tables and chairs for us, set everything up and had a delicious hot meal ready for us to sit down to eat at the time we had requested. And he came back and cleaned up afterward. Five stars!

I asked Chef Leslie Ann to prepare and deliver 5 full meals to my sister's family in Del Mar. The whole experience was perfect - excellent communication and flexibility, and the food came beautifully wrapped and ready with easy, clear heating instructions. And they've raved about everything they've eaten so far. Superb experience all around, I'll definitely use her again.

We hired Stevan to provide the meals for a Leadership Event we were running. We had 10 people there and we asked that he provide healthy nourishing meals. Stevan went above and beyond our expectations! He accommodated all the allergies beautifully and people were absolutely thrilled with his meals. He is an incredible chef but on top of that, he is a wonderful human being to work with. The team he brings in is professional and personable and a great reflection on him as well. We will be using him every time we run one of these events in the area. I cannot recommend NV Personal Dining enough.

I hired Valerie to prepare weekly meals for me. My menu was set and very specific with little wiggle room for creativity. Not only was she willing to work with my specific needs, but she has been able to suggest things to make the recipes more flavorful without going outside of the boundaries of my diet restrictions. She is a true professional, arriving on time with a smile on her face and leaves my kitchen sparkling clean. Thanks Valerie!

When we were looking for a professional to cater our clubhouse event, we contacted five companies. Creative Catering from Temecula was one of those five. From the start, we were very comfortable talking and working with the owner, Tanya. She is extremely friendly and accommodating. Tanya provided us with sample meals to taste and was able to provide guidance from start to finish. As our guest list grew from 30 to 60 she was able to be very flexible to whatever changes needed to be made. Every time we had a question or menu change, Tanya responded promptly and professionally. On the evening of the clubhouse social, Tanya and her assistant were very punctual. The set-up, service and clean-up went flawlessly. Feedback from our club members was very positive. Our guests commented to us how well the meals tasted and how professional Tanya and her assistant were. The bottom line is that we would highly recommend Creative Catering and we will be looking forward to using them in the future. NJ and LJ (55+ Club)

Virginia has been a life saver! I had a baby a month ago and have two other kids. I needed some fresh and delicious home cooked meals delivered during my maternity time. We do the menu planning together and she sends suggestions based on our needs. Currently we have vegetarian family in town and she's been making delicious dishes for the whole family.

Pret (Monique) catered a dinner party for my Board of Directors recently with a delicious meal. Monique made everything so easy for me, thought of every detail! It was a huge relief for me to just "host" this lovely evening, with Pret doing all of the work! Fabulous pasta and amazing layered dessert!!
