I hadn't used thumbtack before when I inquired via a Google search, about finding a good caterer/chef. After receiving numerous responses, I checked out 3 and asked for proposals. As soon as I heard Chef Marcel's voice, I sensed his sincerity and eagerness to please and I appreciated his warmth during our business conversation. While I wasn't able to make a decision right away due to an extensive business trip abroad, I told him I would call him upon my return to the U.S. When I returned, I told him that he was competing against another caterer and he simply said "what will it take to gain your business" and I instantly knew he was the person I wanted. I told him that I would first need to taste his food before a final decision was made and he invited me to his home where inner his lovely wife a baby girl. After tasting his delicious food, I told him he had the job and 2 others, all within a month's time period. Chef Marcel aims to please and my events have all turned out beautiful with delicious food and caring service. Relationships and trust are very important to me and chef Marcel along with his wife, are now a relationship that I truly value. I will continue to use his services for the many future events that I've planned while enjoying the additional benefits of working with a "friend". Give him a call and I'm confident you will choose no other.

I needed a caterer for my dad's funeral reception. Spoke to other caterers but Carolina of Gourmet Lover's Catering was the only one who gave her condolences, this meant a lot to me. The full service presentation was tasteful, the food delicious and reasonably priced. There were no exta added on fees like the other caterers. I highly recommend Gourmet Lover's Catering, Boris & Carolina are a wonderful team and you will not be disappointed.

I have been to The Carnival Truck. Not only is their food fun, creative, and innovative, it's delicious too! I really enjoyed the walking tacos and fried pickles. The burger with a grilled cheese as the bun was amazing. Like any good business, they keep thinking of new ways to define themselves. I haven't had a chance to try the new items that have been added, but can't wait until I do. This is an excellent family oriented business who is friendly and cares about what customers want. It's not often that I'm impressed by both content and customer service, but with The Carnival Truck I am!!

I hired Chef Shawna to cater a morning after the wedding brunch at our home for between 60-70 guests. She took into account all of my considerations for food and designed a creative and comprehensive menu. I also hired her to come to our home a month before the wedding and prepare brunch for the bride, groom, mother of the bride my husband and myself. It was a beautiful sampling of what we can expect on the day of the event. It was a big help to have her come beforehand as we planned how the buffet would be positioned and went over all of the details for the service, from start to finish. The post wedding brunch won’t happen until July, 1st 2018. I will write again and post photographs after the wedding. Hiring Chef Shawna was my first experience using Thumbtack and I am so impressed with the service as it saved a lot of time. I had complete confidence in the process of vetting and hiring someone to make our post wedding brunch special for my step son and soon to be daughter in law. Thank you Thumbtack and Best Mobile Chef!

Chef Mark was an amazing find! We needed a chef in a pinch for an event of 50. He jumped right in and augmented the groceries we already had with creative twists that really wowed our guests. Every bite was delicious and everyone enjoyed their meals. He even made a special separate menu for our vegan guests. He was also very congenial and engaged our guests who wanted to participate in the cooking process. Overall, his joyful demeanor and love of cooking on top of his bad ass cooking skills made our event so much better that we could have hoped for. Thank you Chef Mark!

Chef Mumsie is, without exception, one of the best caterers I have worked with in the Los Angeles area. Her personal service, commitment to excellence, and over-and-above contributions made our several week-long meetings (during Summer 2014) a huge success. The menus were savory and enjoyed by all guests, the food was delivered fresh, not and easy for us to display well. Knowing that all the catering was completely taken care of allowed me to focus on the things that mattered--my guests! Not a single detail was missed. I very highly recommend Chef Mumsie's services to anyone in the Orange or Los Angeles County areas for any event, large or small. Without question, I will be a repeat customer! Thank you!

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!

Chef Pena did an excellent job preparing the meal and educating all 9 guests on proper food preparation, seasonings and his journey through the culinary arts. I was very impressed with the meal (Seared Wild Alaskan Salmon w/ crab stuffed yukon gold mashed potatoes and green bean/ red bell pepper medley. The meal was finished off with a cherry/chocolate cookie pie thing (whatever it was, it was Awesome ). Wonderful dinner party experience. I will definitely request again!

Jordan is an excellent chef and caterer. He produces food that is way beyond the standard catering services. If you want cookie cutter catering go with someone else. If you want really great food at a great price stop on by or use his catering.

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.

I have worked at UCLA for almost 10 years and have had the opportunity to work with Marcus several times when organizing both small and large scale high level events. Each time we have received complete professionalism from Marcus and his staff. His attention to detail covers absolutely any aspect of an event. Which is fantastic because that meant I didn't need to have another vendor for our event needs. His menu is creative, excellent quality of food and he is always open to tailoring an event around your specific needs. I am extremely detail oriented so when I organize an event I need someone like minded and flexible. Marcus provides just that and will work with your budget; which is very important to UCLA. We always look forward to the next time we can use Feast Catering! Suzanne Smith Deputy to the Associate Vice Chancellor & Executive Director UCLA Academic Planning & Budget

We asked our friends and family members who had recently been married what they thought the most important part of the wedding was, and they unanimously said "THE FOOD". From the moment we requested a quote Bill's attention to detail made it a wonderful and memorable experience. We were provided with and absolutely delicious lunch at our tasting; where Bill customized our menu to fit our unique wedding theme. The staff was friendly, informative, professional and genuinely warm and kind. Bill's help however moved beyond his fabulous food. For any and EVERY coordination mishap, he was there with creative and inventive solutions. His staff went above and beyond, even assisting in set up and decoration. We were truly overwhelmed by their generosity and their willingness to be of assistance. On our wedding day, as we ran from the car to the venue to avoid the terrible storm; we were greeted by Bill with a mini buffet for the bridal party so that we would have a chance to actually eat at our wedding. To say the food was amazing is an understatement. I cannot describe how delicious it was or how beautifully and artfully arranged. I truly cannot do it justice. When asked, our guest said that hands down, it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Our menu included custom flank steak sliders with asian slaw, a variety of sushi, mini ribs, chicken skewers, grilled vegetable stuffed crepes, procuitto wrapped asparagus, endive spoons filled with tabouleh, chicken sate, and so much more. The service was impeccable and after everything was done, the staff cleaned and left everything immaculate. Most importantly, Bill was sensitive and understanding of our situation. You see , we were two brides. Bill and his staff were shining examples of what it is to treat everyone with equality and dignity and respect. We were afraid of vendors not wanting to work with us and Bill took all that anxiety away. Through his vast network he found amazing and supportive vendors who were ready to celebrate with us and were empowered by our decision to get married. We cannot thank Bill enough for the many kindnesses he bestowed on us and we cannot wait to eat at his amazing restaurant again. - C & A
