If we could give Marcel 10 STARS, we would! What an amazing experience from the first phone call until the end of the event he catered for us. Marcel was prompt - efficient - he never missed a beat - super easy to communicate with - cared about what we wanted - he went to every length to do exactly what we wanted. We felt so taken care of. Marcel and his crew were TOP NOTCH! We will never go with anyone else - this man is spectacular and so much fun! Our guests loved interacting with him as well as my family. Oh and the food he prepared?!!!!!! Oh my word - people at the party LOST THEIR MINDS! The food was out of this world! You will not be disappointed if you choose Marcel - you will be the most talked about event all year long! Efficient - went the extra mile - worked with my husband who is extremely picky and particular - wonderful staff - fun - professional - perfect choice!

Carolina was wonderful to work with and plan our event food. She really worked with the budget and then Chef Boris delivered delicious and pleasantly prepared food. It was a great experience working with Gourmet Lovers and the food was perfect.

The caterer showed up early to set up and had the food ready when it was time to eat. The food tasted great. A lot of guests mentioned they enjoyed the food. I didmt worry about a thing because he was very helpful as well.

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 Shawna is amazing! I planned a 15-person retreat in Oceanside over a long weekend. We wanted lunches and dinners brought in, but we didn't need serving service. When I requested a quote from her, she also provided a full (mouthwatering) menu within 24 hours, maybe less. She was very accommodating to our handful of 'special diet' attendees, and her pricing was far cheaper than going out for meals. Everyone RAVED about the delicious food, and she was such a pleasure to work with. If you need a personal chef, you won't be disappointed with Chef Shawna!

Chef Mark is very experienced and qualified, and creates very special menus with your preferred ingredients and for every occasion, like the Thanksgiving inspired meal he prepared for us and our dinner guests last November. He is also a pleasure to talk to, so, as a customer I had a wonderful experience since the making of all dishes to the actual dinner time!

Tonya was great in the planning process. She was responsive and really helpful in menu planning. The food was a hit! The only hiccup was on the day of. Due to forgetting one of the courses at home and traffic on the freeways, our meal wasn't set up until 30 minutes after the agreed upon time. While these things happen, it did affect our overall experience.

I planned a personal cooking lesson for my boyfriend's birthday, and couldn't have asked for a better experience! Chef Keith took time to get to know exactly what we were looking for, and he was flexible in creating our personalized 3 course menu. He showed up to my house on time, and was prepared with all of the food and cooking tools. He even cleaned up afterwards and left my kitchen spotless. The food was amazing! Chef Keith is very knowledgable about cooking. I would highly recommend hiring Chef Keith! It was absolutely worth it!!

On Feb 1, 2018, Chef Amy performed her private chef services at my girlfriend’s birthday party with our teenage daughter. Amy curated a delicious 5-course menu based on our favorites. She prepared the food in new fun beautiful ways. Amy was funny, approachable and professional. She brought all needed cooking and serving ware. She cooked and cleaned up everything. Amy explained and presented every course of the meal and prepared unique never seen before drinks that were a huge hit! The food portions in each course were just right and completely filling. Amy clearly loves cooking and enjoys interacting with clients. Amy was sooo good by evenings end that we were singing to our throw-back music playlist and hugging her goodbye with anticipation of a future event. I definitely plan to hire Amy many more times in the future. HIGHLY RECOMMEND- 5 STARS

Segars culinary did a phenomenal job last night catering a very special dinner. Their attention to detail and ability to combine art and food in one amazing meal was second to none. They far exceeded our expectations and I would - and WILL - have them again to cook again soon. Without a question one of the best meals we have had in memory.

Meraki is a Greek word used to describe putting a lot of love, creativity and soul into something which is why Jory Pomeranz chose the name. It is easy to smell, taste and see that a lot of love goes into each Meraki Meal. Jory has a natural ability to combine flavors. He can time every course so they are not only cooked at the perfect temperature, but served at the correct temperature and add flare to something basic like a chicken thigh. Even the grill marks on a piece of chicken are perfectly spread out and just enough to give the chicken a grill flavor without ruining the juicy tenderness we all strive for when making chicken. Jory can make things that you hated as a kid taste delectable. Jory adds spices and sauces up until the minute prior to serving to make sure each plate is perfect. I once saw Jory save what was about to be terrible chicken tacos by creating a homemade taco sauce from a nearly empty refrigerator. With Meraki Meals the food suits the season. Who wants to eat watermelon in October when pomegranate and apples are so delicious. Every Meraki Meal tastes like the season and uses fresh fruits and vegetables. Meraki Meals put a healthy spin on what looks and tastes like a calorie nightmare, but each meal is filled with proteins and vitamins. Not only is the flavor impeccable, the presentation is a work of art. Even when catering for 35-40 people, Meraki Meals are served in beautiful silver dishes. Meraki Meals are great for crowds of any size. I have to make a conscious effort not to scrape my plate clean every time I have had Meraki Meals. I highly recommend Meraki Meals for a party of any size, but especially 8-12 people because this might give the chef a chance to sit and talk with you which is a treat of its own!

Wow & Amazing are two words that your guest will say if you hire Zachary. His food is YES that GOOD. He goes above and beyond to make his clients happy and we were over the moon happy with the food we had. Also a bonus the kitchen was clean to start and I think Zachary left it cleaner then it was when he started. He brings everything all you need to do is enjoy the amazing food he prepares for you. Perfectly seasoned, perfectly prepared made our party just perfect. Thank you Zachary.
