I hope you are lucky enough to have Chef Marcel produce your event. We had a college graduation party for family and grads, poolside with passed and stationary hors d'ouvres. Marcel and his staff were punctual, professional, courteous, warm and personable without being intrusive. Marcel had worked with us to create exactly the menu we wanted, and by showtime, the food absolutely exceeded our expectations. It is no exaggeration to say we were thrilled. We were impressed with Chef Marcel's responsiveness to our emails and texts; he was willing and able to meet our needs. As we were hosting our party as out-of-towners in a VRBO, logistics were tricky, but Marcel managed everything for us with ease. It is easy to spot competency and experience, and Marcel has both in spades. I can't imagine a better personality to work with or better food. Chef Marcel, thank you thank you thank you! We can't wait to return to LA and have another event with you!

Chef Mike catered our Toastmasters Club's 25th Anniversary Gala. We had 80 guest. Chef Mike was the first caterer to respond to my request for a quote and he continued to be quick to respond throughout the entire process. Chef Mike provided us with a tasting prior to the event and we were sold from the first bite. He and his crew were flexible, professional, kind and efficient. The food was marvelous. We had Tri-tip, Salmon and Chicken for our entrees. All three were superb. So were the side dishes. Chef Mike altered his ingredients to accommodate our gluten free attendees and added special entrees for our vegan enthusiasts. No matter the request, the answer was always "Yes". Chef Mike and his team were a big part of the successful outcome of our event. I highly recommend Gourmet Your Way Catering for any event, large or small! You're going to love your experience with GYWC!

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.

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.

My husband and I hired Madkins catering for a family weekend in the desert (La Quinta). We requested a bbq for the first night, and an early Easter dinner for the second night. I expected the meals to be good but not great (I haven’t really had an excellent catering experience). However, the meals were OUTSTANDING. Chef Aviarie is truly talented, and our entire family and guests talked about the interesting flavors and quality of the food. I still can’t get over how Chef Aviarie and Frank prepared everything from scratch in our kitchen in just a few hours! We requested a hefty amount of dishes, and they pulled it off without a sweat! The team is incredibly kind, professional and a pleasure to have cooking in our kitchen. They even managed to entertain our 6 year old nephew while they were cooking. I should also note their rates are very reasonable! I can’t say enough good things about our experience. I am happy to serve as a personal reference in case anyone wants my feedback. Madkins Catering can provide my email address. OUTSTANDING JOB! We look forward to hiring you again in LA or in the desert!

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!

We have had personal chefs in the past and all were good experiences, but Shawna was a cut above. The experience that she provided was exemplary in every facet. Shawna was personable, prepared, and her food was exquisite. She will be called upon in the future to cater any event we may have. We give her our highest recommendation.

First of all Susan is delightful which is great cause who needs a snarky chef with attitude. On top of that she is a great chef. We asked for an American meat based menu and got the tastiest short rib in a Parmesan crust in individual bowls. I can't wait to use Susan again.

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 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.

We hired Danesh for a party of 14. She put together a superb event. First, Daneen is a gem of a human being. She is wonderful to work with and makes everything easy. Second, she is an outstanding chef. The meal she prepared for my guests, including hors d'Oeuvres, mains, and desserts, was most delicious. The pairings were great, the tastes both subtle and bold. Third, Daneen has a great eye for making the plate look cookbook perfect. She is wonderful, and I cannot wait for the chance to hire her again.

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!

Chef Jessie cooked a delicious Sunday brunch for me and my family and displayed it all beautifully. My guests were raving about her food and her special touch condiments. Everything tasted fresh and well thought out. She herself was sweet, on time, and well prepared. Thanks again for making our Sunday a relaxing and memorable experience.

Amazing surprise dinner for my wife. I wanted to do something special and have never hired a private chef before. Nikki was great! She helped me plan the entire evening. The menu was perfect and she even helped me set the mood by creating the most romantic setting ever. I could never have done this by myself and wife absolutely loved it!
