I have worked with Pete for 4 years. We have a 2 week summer retreat at a remote location for about 25-30 guests. Pete handles the catering from soup to nuts (literally). Planning and flexibility are strong points, but what really amazes is the creativity. Very fresh, local ingredients are combined masterfully. Pete takes direction well, and adjusts the menu as desired. Our guests continually express delight with Pete, and his food. Also, he arranges for and supervises additional staff as needed.
Chef Rocco was charming. He arrived exactly on time, had the food largely prepared, so he was able to serve the first course within 30 minutes of his arrival. In that 30 minutes, while he was getting everything going our family enjoyed watching him and chatting with him about his wide range of experiences as a chef in various different countries. He showed us photos of his Swedish wife and his beautiful 14 month old daughter. When we sat down for dinner - our conversation changed to family matters and chef Rocco served, introduced his courses, cleared plates - and when we were done with the fabulous meal we had a immaculately clean kitchen. The food was fresh, organic, healthy, and delicious. The mouse for desert was "too" good...I couldn't resist eating every last speck. The only reason that I gave him 4 stars instead of 5 is that he delivered exactly what he said he'd do perfectly...but for me...5 stars is doing something more - a unexpected delight...like the little unexpected mini appetizer a restaurant brings you before your order.
The food was delicious with great presentation from the excellent and friendly staff! This was the best gourmet taco bar BBQ in the Bay Area!
Sat cooked a delicious 3-course meal for two for a dinner date :). We had a lovely salad with local beets and goat cheese medallions, an Asian-style Halibut with lots of delicious veggies, and a seasonal fruit gallette for dessert. He gave me lots of menu options to look at and pick the style of food I like. He was also super nice and professional, and took care of everything - shopping, clean up, packing up the leftovers for us (!) etc. It was a magical evening thanks to Sat! I highly recommend his services and hope to hire him again.
We received excellent service from A Plus Catering. The food arrived on time, was tasty, and everything went as planned. I would recommend them for any event. Very professional, friendly and affordable.
Stephanie is amazing. The food was really great (we finish everything). We had taco bar and it was really great. The lil decoration was really cute too. Suit the mood and the feel of the food. We had an event for about 120 people. Stephanie was very helpful in the ordering process as well as communicating. I appreciate the fast respond and also flexibility. I know that I am one tough customer but she was being super nice about the whole thing. Will definitely contact her for our upcoming events :)
As a event coordinator I have worked with Steve and the folks at DNL Catering on many special occasions. We have worked together on wedding and baby showers, brunches, wedding receptions, work Christmas parties and anniversary parties. They always provide a menu to your request and the playing of the food is always on beautiful plates and dishes, not aluminum trays. There are always compliments on the foods from the guests. We are always a happy with the selections. Their website makes it easy to browse their menu and I always receive a reply promptly when I submit an event request online. DNL Catering is on my preferred vendor list when I meet with future clients. I have used them in my own home numerous times. They are my 'go to' caterers for any event.
Deborah was very quick and efficient with our communications, and took our order with just a few days to plan. She was on time for the delivery, and we had ample food! As arranged, she made taco fixings and some side dishes for us. The salad, roasted veggies, and guacamole were delicious. The taco meats were good enough for the event, but were relatively bland. I would certainly call Deborah again, and I feel certain with a little more discussion and planning, the food would have hit all five stars.
I had a great experience with hiring Kitchenina as our caterers for an event with 40 people. The communication was always prompt, polite and friendly. They did a great job on the day of the event to ensure that the food was delivered on time (despite the traffic/weather conditions) and made my job as the event organizer much easier. I would definitely work with Kitchenina again in the future, and regret that I did not take photos of the food! (Thanks for the brownies as well!)
I've known Grace for many years. I have been over to her house for home cooked meals that were truly gourmet, and delicious. She also prepared some food and sold it from her home. On the level of catering for large parties, I went to our friend Dave's party last month were Grace did the catering. The food was flawless, delicious, with great presentation, and great variety. I strongly recommend Grace for catering your events.
Graham cooked for me at 10 year wedding anniversary which was outdoors at a private location in Stinson Beach on October 24, 2015. I met with Graham maybe a month before my event. I was very specific about everything I wanted for my special day. We had a few kids and a total of about 50 people so I wanted to make sure that he was a good fit for me and my guest of families. I did not want a fancy foie gras chef although I think Graham is in that league. I wanted someone who would cook a good meal and I wanted to be satisfied at the end of the day. Graham met with me and my mom and made us a sample from my Mediterranean menu. After spending a little time with Graham, I knew I wanted to hire him. He was charming and professional and his food was delicious. At my party he helped make my event go smoothly. He made 3 different salads, grilled chicken, salmon and beef kabobs for my lunch party. It was a beautiful day and my guest were so happy with the meal and also found Graham to be very charming! He is gem! Thank you so much Graham! I hope we can have you cook for us again in the future.
We had a great experience using Kitchen 350 for my daughter's 30th birthday celebration. The food was delicious, and displayed very appetizingly. The staff was on time, very friendly and professional and they cleaned everything up at the end. We will definitely use Kitchen 350 to cater our next event!
John was hired to cater our son's graduation party. This was no easy task for in addition to providing healthy and tasty food options as requested by his parents, he was also asked to appease the palates of high school seniors. John did just that and maintained the beautiful food display throughout the evening. Numerous guests complimented us on the dishes and stated that if there was an award for the best food at any of the graduation parties, we certainly would have won! John was easy to work with and very professional. We would not hesitate to use him again!
Catered our New Years party for 16. Appetizers and food were excellent. Specializes in veggie, but did a meat course for us. All ingredients fresh, organic and gluten free. The gnocchi was to die for!
Rainbow Chefs were reliable, professional, and punctual. The entrees were truly impressive-- as good as top SF restaurants we have been to. The desserts and appetizers were also super tasty. The chef was really nice and easy to work with, and the person we spoke with to arrange everything was great as well. The price was reasonable for the services provided. Only reason we are not giving 5 stars is because the first dish, the salad, was super over-salted and pretty lackluster in ingredients. I was definitely worried that the rest of the meal would not be good, but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of everything else. All in all, I would definitely recommend them.
Lucas was great! He arrived promptly, was very nice and personable, and cooked a delicious meal. We'd hire him again!
I didn’t take pictures to show you guys but Cheri did an excellent job on my fiancé’s and my dinner for two. Not only did the food taste great but the set up was very nice. We had no hesitation hiring her for our upcoming June 2019 wedding! She will give you quality food for an affordable price. Not to mention she also has other vendors if your looking to have her company cater your wedding. She puts time and detail into her creations. I definitely recommend her.
Mise En Place is hands down one of the street caterers in the Bay Area. David’s is extremely creative and professional and food is excellent!
I would never hesitate to recommend him Mark and his team recently catered my daughters wedding reception at our home in Capitola. From beginning to end his relaxed nature + excellent execution + delicious food enabled the guests as well as the hosts to make the event memorable and relaxed at the same time. His experience came in handy when planning the event and he took care of everything from start to finish. My wife and I have thrown many parties over the years and this was the first where we called out for help and it was well worth it. Thanks again to Mark and I would never hesitate to recommend him or call on him again.
Great tacos and service.
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.
