Angela was very helpful right from the beginning. Once she and I spoke, determined a budget, she proposed some wonderful selections, and the evening was divine. Having a few people who have gluten-free diets, the menu planning was extremely important to me - and every item was gluten free AND delicious! Angela is able to help rent anything you need, so that isn't a worry. She has a wonderful assistant who is warm and friendly. I would highly recommend Angela's business for your catering event.

I appreciated how quick Aliki was to respond to my catering request and called to discuss my needs. Our party was strictly appetizers and Aliki provided a great variety of delicious options. The meatballs with lemon hummus were so tasty along with the dolmas, and caprese bites with a wonderful pesto dipping sauce. We would certainly use Kitchenina again for another party.

Sat did a wonderful catering job for our luncheon of fifty people this past weekend. I was a little hesitant at first because I didn't know his work and he didn't have his website up and running. I'm glad I took a chance as he came through with shining colors.

Hi had the pleasure of selecting Chet to prepare a menu and work my Friendsgiving event which was my first time starting a tradition with my friends. From Chet's initial response to my quote request through the end of my event, the services provided were first class! Chet worked with me on my menu and I felt that he truly listened and took my vision into consideration when delivering my sample menu. I was extremely nervous since in the past, I would always be the one to prepare meals for my guest however, this year I wanted to do something different allowing me the opportunity to spend time with my guest instead of slaving in the kitchen. Chet checked in with me a few days prior to my event to confirm final details and then it was show time. He showed up on time as expected with everything needed along with a helper and the magic began. I am very satisfied with the outcome. From the taste and flavors of the food, the presentation, the hospitality Chet and his crew showed my guest, the clean up, to Chet's willingness to do more than expected (setting up tableware and more). A+ to Chet. He will certainly be my go to for future events in need of catering. Well done!

Emily arrived on time and Tony followed short after. They were both pleasant and professional. The food presentation was truly attractive and appetizing. Emily was particularly mindful of making sure that the meats were kept fresh prior to serving. Layout was organized with Tony even making sure to put away the desserts for later. All our guests were impressed with the food. Many raved about the brie in particular! The tiramisu and carrot cake were also favorites. The cheese with berries was amazing. The quiche looked a little overcooked but was actually not. We didn't get to taste everything but based on response from our guests, we think every dish was well-received. There were hardly any left-overs - mostly the vegetables and the cheeses. We were very impressed with DnL catering. We will definitely recommend to others and will consider for our next event.

Wow!! Just Wow!! Chef Judith Green catered our company holiday party last Friday and it was amazing. First, and very impressive, she showed up with an army of chefs and servers. They layed out two tables of bountiful delight! Cheeses, hummus, herbs from her garden. Whole Salmon, Asian sliders, veggies, and incredible desserts!! Our CEO was so impressed. She made me and our company look good. Not only will I hire her again, I plan to recommend her to everyone in need of a caterer. Thank you so much!!

Richmond Main Street was one of the first catering jobs that Quiche and Carry ever did. Deborah was great. She was very attentive to us as customers and wanted to make sure that she got it right. The quiches were delicious. She is very creative and knows how to mix flavors. I had never tried a dessert quiche before and was a bit skeptical but it was fantastic. I would highly recommend her. Although it was her first job she was great. We have used her since that first time and will continue to use her. Yum!

Oh my goodness, I was so, so impressed with Cheri's cooking. I've never, and I mean never, tasted a turkey that was as tender and flavorful as hers. I'm getting hungry right now just thinking of it. She catered our holiday party, and the depth and delight of all her amazing dishes tantalized all the guests. All her dishes we're cooked and baked to perfection. She's a genius in the kitechen, with a down-home, nurturing spirit to boot. I highly recommend Cheri for any catering event you're planning in the future. Your guest will rave that it's the best catered food they've ever had.

Don't look any further: LL Services is the BEST! They catered a women's luncheon in my home, and I found their friendly manner, professionalism and responsiveness to be unmatched. They offered flexible menu options with fresh, creative and delicious selections. My guests went back not only for seconds, but thirds, and they all left with a business card for their own catering needs. Don't pass up the opportunity to have them cater your next event.

Rose catered the Chinese Historical Society Museum VIP re-opening party for us and did an absolutely fabulous job! I really appreciated how her communication during the entire process was very clear and prompt. Rose brought a great energy to the event, had wonderful staff working with her, and last but not least, the food was AMAZING!! I would definitely work with her again, and I recommend her services for any Bay Area organizations looking for a great catering experience. Thanks again Rose!
