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 is very responsive and has great service, along with him being a great chef of course! He traveled to my parents house for us to do a tasting for our wedding and we were blown away. It was amazing. We got so many compliments from our friends and family about how good the food was. With that being said I have a couple nitpicky complaints for constructive feedback: The plates and silverware were not what we had originally discussed at the tasting. They were supposed to be the nice plastic that looked real and we got clear which looked cheesy to us. It could have had to do with the fact that we did the tasting about a year in advance and things could have been forgotten or overlooked but the change was never communicated to us. Also, my husband requested to have a spicy BBQ sauce during our tasting and the BBQ sauce was on the side at that time. We discussed having spicy and mild options. I was very excited for the pulled pork at the wedding but it had spicy BBQ sauce all over it! I thought it was going to be on the side, like it was during the tasting. It was so spicy that I couldn't even eat it. :( One of our aunts was not able to eat any of the meat because it was "too peppery" but that was the only other complaint that we got. Other than that everyone loved it. Everything was great and I would still highly recommend Mr. WorldWide Catering, it just wasn't quite perfect for my event.
Gourmet Lovers recently catered my son's wedding reception and everything turned out wonderfully! Carolina, Boris and their team took care of everything from start to finish and they didn't leave until the place was spotless. The food was amazing. My son and his bride didn't want "traditional" reception food so Chef Boris put together some of the tastiest tacos, beans, rice and salsa we have ever had, not to mention a fun interactive build your own Nacho Bar for the hors d'oeuvres that all the guests raved about. Not only was Chef Boris' food amazing, Carolina's wedding cake was something special. She worked with us to design just want the bride and groom wanted. The cake was rich in flavor and beautifully decorated. She certainly knows how to bake an amazing cake. I am a fan of Gourmet Lovers Catering and highly recommend them to anyone needing a caterer who not only knows how to put together great food, but knows how to work within your budget. Carolina was always prompt in returning calls and always stayed in touch with us. I plan on using them for all my catering needs in the future.
Chef Marc is the best!!! He has completely changed my lifestyle. To give some context, I oversee 2 divisions of an entertainment advertising agency and have a very fast pace, very stressful, always working, late hours lifestyle. I lived in NYC for many years before moving to LA and cooking was never my thing. I tend to order out or make simple things. I’m a chubby girl and recently, my doctor put me on a medical cleanse with a very restricted diet. Chef Marc came to the rescue. He was able to accommodate the restrictions and made everything taste amazing!!! I had to go vegan gluten free as well and he made sure I was well fed during that time. He’s opened my eyes to how to eat well and still be satisfied. In the last 2 months of working with Chef Marc I’ve lost 15lbs. I have minimals snacks and all his food is yummy and keeps me satisfied. He has a wide variety of meals that always keep it interesting. I’ve also turned on a couple colleagues in my office to him. We all talk about how great and yummy his food is. I highly recommend working with Chef Marc. He’s super nice and takes good care of his clients. I intend on continuing to work with Chef Marc now that my cleanse is almost over to continue to loose wieght and most importantly, eat healthy! Thank you Chef Marc! Thank you!
Had a great experience with Executive Chef Mark Kearney and Team. To set expectations before the review, I like to consider myself a food lover...not a critic, just a food lover. I love great dining experiences and am equally critical or disappointed when they fall short. My family and I were hosting Christmas Dinner for a total of 10 family members. I found Chef Mark on Thumbtack based on his previous reviews. Roy (part of Mark's team) promptly reached out with thought-starters for the meal and breakout of pricing. Over the next few weeks Roy, Mark and I worked closely crafting the perfect menu for my traditional Christmas dinner, while staying within my budget parameters. To note, Chef Mark is priced higher than some of the other chefs I was in contact with, but I'm glad we went with Mark based on the outcome. The menu consisted of 4 gourmet hors d oeuvres passed around while we opened presents. A fan favorite was the roasted fig with gorgonzola and prosciutto. Then time for dinner. We sat at the dining table and were served Butternut Ravioli as an appetizer, Lobster Bisque soup (a bit on the spicy side - only critique I have with the food all night) and an organic baby butterleaf salad with incredible apricot balsamic vinaigrette. The main course was both a grilled beef tenderloin (prepared to your liking) and pan roasted turkey breast. Sides that accompanied the main course were brocollini, green beans and bacon/garlic mashed potatoes. Everything (except the soup) was beyond 5 stars in terms of presentation, taste and expectations. Lastly we were served two very decadent and delicious deserts - a molten lava cake and traditional bread pudding. Two things to mention. My wife was forced (by her OBGYN) into a new diet two days prior to the Christmas dinner consisting of no dairy and no soy. When Chef Mark arrived we asked him what had dairy and soy ingredients and he quickly and thoughtfully mentioned that he could make my wife's servings without either dairy or soy. Talk about going above and beyond. This was much appreciated and set the tone for the entire dinner! I would potentially ask for two servers for the evening on future events. One to solely serve as sous chef, helping Mark prepare the food in the kitchen and the other server to help set the table, serve food, wine, etc.. throughout the evening. The 5 hours that Mark and Team allocate for the evening can go quickly. This might alleviate that. Either way, a great experience and thank you Mark and Team!
Loved Chef Joseph and his server, and the food was terrific. The only problem was a stubborn oven that held all sorts of "secrets" (ie, when you open the door, the oven turns off ... say WHAT?) that gave the chef some trouble, especially with the Cornish game hens. Not the fault of the chef - food and company were all grand. Leslie (of the Three Sisters)
I hired Sierra Madre Catering for my husband's 40th birthday party held at my home. The set up process was so easy, they were so accommodating with the menu I wanted (even though it included fried foods and philly cheese steak sandwiches which are hard to make on-site). The moment they got to my house, Tonya and her chefs were so professional, speedy, on top of it all! They made my night so much easier and fun and I finally got to enjoy my own party for once! They left my house very neat like my kitchen was never used! They picked up after my guests throughout the night. My favorites were inside-out Philly cheese steak, pulled pork sliders, mac & cheese, potstickers and garlic fries. Thank you and looking forward to seeing you again!
I hired Rich for a small event at my house yesterday. Before the party, Rich was always answering my phone calls and texts with any question or concerns I had. The day of the party he did an EXCELLENT job bartending and walking around to make sure everyones glasses we full! He even went to the extent to help entertain my 2 year old during dinner time and helped the chef move empty dishes! He was truly amazing and a great price and i will definitely use him again!
Steven came to our home, to serve my husband and me our anniversary dinner. He brought a beautifully printed out menu explaining the courses. He brought his own dishware which was lovely. From the well displayed appetizers to the meal itself ... we were delighted! The food was five star! And dessert was impressive! A very wonderful experience from beginning to end. What a treat to have an impeccably dressed chef walk through the door of our home and create pure deelish!!! Thank you to Steven!!! Michael and Cindy Thee Ashburn, Virginia
I am beyond grateful to Thumbtack for connecting me to Chef Keith Prante and his team at Hautè Productions Events and Catering to cater my mom's 80th birthday celebration. They are absolutely A-MAZING! Chef Prante was one of two chefs who responded to my request via Thumbtack, and I also received a personal referral. Neither of the other caterers offered ANYWHERE NEAR the quality, selections, variety and value that Hautè offered at my price point. We had our tasting today, and it absolutely sealed the deal! Everything was delicious and the presentation was outstanding. I highly recommend Hautè Productions to any potential customer who appreciates excellence, accommodation and genuine customer service.
Carmi provides delicious and nutritious meals for our family of 4, with 2 small kids, including one on the ketogenic diet for seizures. Carmi is responsible and responsive, easy to get a hold of, and goes out of her way to make sure everything is perfect. She has become a friend to our family!
Shelly not only makes vegan cooking simple and delicious, she provides the tools and tricks you need to prepare meals for your family! She teaches with love and passion and educates the public about plant-based nutrition and provides the info you need to make the switch from omnivore to vegan or enhance your current vegan lifestyle. I have been vegetarian for 20+ years and vegan for 9 years and I learned so much from Shelly just from one class! I can’t wait to learn more, as she has so much to offer and an entire cook book worth of recipes in her head to impress any chef!
Greg was everything I could have wanted in a personal dining chef! Such a warm personality, professional yet personal, and off the chart food. I could go on and on about the food combinations, the incredible taste, and presentation of a five star meal, made with love. You will not be disappointed with Greg: hands down, a one of a kind experience:))
Has a fantastic personality and a really clear vision for making great tasting meals! She answered all of my questions and was absolutely amazing at working in substitutions for my limited diet. She also responds very quickly, which I appreciated a lot.
Hiring Sydney was a great experience. My boyfriend and I wanted to do something different and with me being a picky eater I was nervous at first, but it was truly amazing in every way. Great food, super professional and overall really fun having a Chef cook for us!! Next time I have a dinner party or event I will for sure being calling on Sydney to share the amazing experience and flavors with others!
Jeanne is an excellent chef and really listens to her clients. She is punctual, thorough, and her food is amazing. Whether she is cooking for a family or an event everything is fabulous. Her presentation is artistic and spot on. I highly recommend Jeanne. You will not be disappointed. She is exceptional!!!
Valerie was our chef for almost a year. She moved to LA so we sadly no longer work with her. She is absolutely fantastic! I had strict dietary restrictions including dairy free, sugar free and grain free and Val cooked all of our meals with that in mind. AND they were all fantastic! We miss her a lot, but anyone that works with her is so lucky!!
I always look forward working at a Chef Wendell event. His expertise in culinary cuisine is beyond fabulous. Executing any menu along with any task given at hand is his specialty. He has such a way with food because I know he pours his heart into it. Can’t wait to work my next event with Chef Wendell!
Passionate and dedicated to their work. Chef Tasha's attention to detail is
CHEF IS AN ALL TIME WINNER, PROMPT, COURTEOUS AND KNOWLEDGEABLE. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM. DOROTHY
My family and I are very much educated in the art of fine cuisine. We had some guest show up on a sudden stop over and none of us were in the right frame to go out. So, my wife and I decided to try thumbtack. We found Chef David and it was like hitting the lottery. He was punctual, professional and had a great view of exactly what we were needing. From his vendor contacts (for freshest ingredients), to the delivery of his meal everything was over the top and all were blown away. Most importantly we were able to really enjoy the company of our dear friends in a naturally comfortable environment, our home. I will say that although it wasn't on the cheap, it was so worth it that we have booked him again for our anniversary event next week for 30 with our closest friends. Chef Dave, Jessica and I are honored to have meet you and we will keep you on speed dial. And this reference is so easy to write. We will have you every week, when in town. Thanks again for the last minute reservation of your services. Matt H.
