Hired Rocco for drop-off catering service for a party hosted at home. Delivery was right on time and the main dish of my order, "Salmon in Papillotte," was cooked with perfection. Juicy and tender, it was loved by all the guests. Rocco was also very easy to work with throughout the messaging back and forth in deciding on the menu and portion. His price was a bit toward the high end side but overall the experience was very satisfactory.

Deborah catered breakfast for 170 people in our office. She talked through the event with me and helped to determine the best option for food (a standing event so needed something quick and easy for guests to grab and eat with their hands). She arrived on time and had everything set for our guests, and we had plenty of food for everyone. We'd definitely recommend her!

We have found Alisa through Thumbtack based upon the reviews and were extremely pleased with her Catering Service for our Wedding. Alisa and her team arrived early, set up the tables and had the venue smelling wonderful with all of the food she cooked. Not only did her and the team assist with the dinner service, but they also cleaned and packed away all of the rental settings. This was extremely beneficial and gave both us and our friends additional time to enjoy the day. If anyone ever needs Catering Services in the East Bay, she is the best and has the most reasonable prices! Greg-n-Greg

I had the pleasure of having Chet Chase cater for me in Florida. Chet catered numerous corporate events for me in my showroom in the Design Center of The Americas. He could cater a luncheon for 10 or a dinner for 25.Everyone always raved about him. His creations were delicious and his presentation superb. Chet also catered personal dinner parties in my home. He took care of everything from planning the menu to selecting party favors for me. Chet also helped me with my diet. He prepared lunches and dinners for me that were tasty and nutritious.I am not an easy person to please but when it comes to Chet Chase he is tremendous when it comes to cuisine and planning

David Shevick — 5 starGrace catered my 54th b-day party in my new home in San Rafael. I also hired the James Morsely Band. It was all first class. The food was phenomenal. Each dish was unique, original and delicious. Grace put so much love into the food--home-made cheese birthday cake, exotic salads and pastries. I had like 40 people and all the food was devoured. I really appreciate who Grace is and what she does.

I was planning a Celebration of Life service for. Very dear friend. The event location was in Walnut Creek, CA and I was in Florida. Dawn, from Aurora Catering, was so helpful in the planning of the catering for about 100 people. She took so much of the stress off of me with her advice. The food selection was delicious and well displayed. Aurora's staff was unbelievably organized, efficient and wonderful. Lindsay, who was my contact that, made everything run so smoothly I didn't have to worry about anything except circulating among my guests. I would highly recommend Aurora Catering.

My friend recently celebrated her 50th birthday. Her wish? To have a catered dinner at home where she could relax and enjoy a wonderful evening of food, vino and friends. My decision to go with Rainbow Chefs was the BEST CHOICE! They worked with me to create the menu which the chef cooked to PERFECTION! It was a joy to see the guests "ooohh" and "aahhh" as each dish was brought out...Having Rainbow Chefs prepare, serve and clean up allowed the hostesses (me and my friend) to enjoy the event too! It was truly a magical night...I highly recommend them!

I attended a small dinner party that LL Services catered. The dinner was absolutely delicious and healthy at the same time. LL Services were professional and informative about the dishes they presented. Their demeanor was pleasant and easy to be around. They added a nice but subtle touch to the ambience of the evening.

If you’re going to hire miseenplacesf.com, make sure to let Dan work with you on the type of experience. After looking at his website and seeing that he worked at The French Laundry, he had my complete trust. Originally we were going to have him drop the food off, but he explained that having more of a dinner party experience is the way to go. So we did, and the Italian American inspired menu from his site was better than I’ve had in most any restaurant.

We hired Mark to cater brunch for our wedding, and we were very impressed! He replies in a timely manner to questions, requests, and concerns. From the moment he reached out in response to my project on Thumbtack, Mark worked hard to accommodate our needs. He made sure that we felt good about the menu before we booked him, and had us over for a tasting. Additionally, he noticed an item we didn't originally include on the menu and graciously added it to the meal (potatoes!). Many of our guests made comments to us about how much they enjoyed the food, and everyone (about 130 people) had as much to eat as they wanted with food left over. My only regret was that as the bride I didn't have the chance to eat as much of that AMAZING French toast as I wanted!

It what can only be described as a limited and challenging environment, Rainbow Chefs provided a gourmet dinner for my executives that was truly exquisite. Everything about the process was handled well with great communication from Lana. I chose Rainbow Chefs after initial conversations with more than 20 caterers because I was convinced that she was really listening to me. Chef Nicholas created a masterpiece of a dinner that was enjoyed by everybody. It was the highlight of a long day.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
