Chef Marcel and his associates did an outstanding job for me. He catered a full buffet dinner for 80 guests in a garden setting. The appetizers, entrees and sides were as lovely as they were delicious. His servers, assistants and bartenders were consummate professionals. He also assisted me with furniture and equipment rentals as well as bar supplies. He and his associates left their work areas in perfect condition. I highly recommend Chef Marcel and would definitely use him again myself.
I needed a caterer for my dad's funeral reception. Spoke to other caterers but Carolina of Gourmet Lover's Catering was the only one who gave her condolences, this meant a lot to me. The full service presentation was tasteful, the food delicious and reasonably priced. There were no exta added on fees like the other caterers. I highly recommend Gourmet Lover's Catering, Boris & Carolina are a wonderful team and you will not be disappointed.
We had a very special breakfast catered by Madkins catering. The food was amazing! All of our guests have been raving about how great it was. They are very professional and such a pleasure to work with. We will definitely hire them again in the future.
Chef J David cooked us a great meal and catering carnival provided great service throughout the whole process.
Understand my trepidation never having a professional Chef cooking for me in my humble home. I was seconds away from meeting and greeting the highly acclaimed Celebrity Chef, MARK KEARNEY and his AWESOME associate Victoria. I could belabor the OBVIOUS, however, kudos for the preparation, presentation , moreover, QUALITY of the Signature Cocktails, Appetizers, and Dinner OUTSTANDING. Another exceptional highlight of our evening was Chef Mark Kearney himself. So easy to be around, not pretentious, humble, funny, kind and genuinely warm. If you should ever have the opportunity to meet this amazing man and have him prepare OATMEAL you will be impressed
My team had a great experience. It was a Mexican buffet business dinner. The servers Kim and Joy were wonderful. The food was excellent. We would definitely use Wild Thyme Catering again. Thank you Susan!!!
Pam catered a buffet family dinner for 40 people for us on Xmas day. We hired her with only two weeks warning. She promised a moist tasty turkey and delicious salmon and she delivered. All the food was delicious. The cranberry sauce was excellent. She was unobtrusive, on time and very helpful. We'd definitely hire her again.
I hired Sierra Madre to cater a come-and-go brunch for close friends and out-of-town guests the morning after my daughter’s wedding. Initially I was concerned about travel time from Monrovia to my home in the Larchmont area of Los Angeles, but Tonya (owner-chef) assured me she would allow for all eventualities and be there with plenty of time to set up and be ready before the guests arrived. The menu was mimosas, orange juice, lox, bagel & cream cheese (with the usual trimmings), vegetarian omelets, pancakes, cut fruit, and sour cream coffee cake, coffee and tea. Everything turned out perfect! Tonya and her assistant, Chris, were at my house early, got set up and were ready to go before the guests started arriving. The food was wonderful. The on-the-spot food, pancakes and omelets, were outstanding; and Tonya’s sour cream coffee cake was a BIG hit. The guests loved everything. The only glitch was an under estimation of how much lox, bagels and cream cheese the guests would consume. Fortunately, I had anticipated that could happen and had an extra 60 ounces of lox on hand and an extra pint of cream cheese, and we have two bagel shops within walking distance. Tonya was great to work with and having her cater made my life so much easier. It was a beautiful brunch, within my budget, and I am thankful that I took the chance on hiring her company as I had relied solely on the Thumbtack reviews when I made the choice. I’ll definitely use Sierra Catering again. The only suggestion I might make is that more attention be paid to the serving dishes used. Mixing bowls really aren’t attractive bowls to put on the buffet table.
We were very happy with the food and service room Aioli. Catering our family event made everything run smoothly, and gave me the opportunity to mingle and visit with our guests. The food was delicious, and delivered and set up on time. I would highly recommend Aioli.
Chef Alexis made catering a meal in LA from MI a breeze!! Her communication is excellent and her food is even better. The lunches were a HUGE hit with our clients and really helped make my company stand out! We highly recommend So Divine Catering and are already working with them for our next round of luncheons!
Michelle was fast to respond, gave us a quote immediately, followed up appropriately and delivered a fantastic buffet - hot and tasty. Her prices are very fair and the food quality top-notch. For not having a lot of time between need and delivery - she was extremely helpful in deciding what we needed and thinking of the things we didn't. I highly recommend her and if I'm in the area again I would not hesitate to engage her services. Thanks again Michelle - Kathleen and Chris Gallavan
Work quality - phenomenal Professionalism - fantastic Responsiveness - Joanna couldn't have been more responsive if she tried. Value- heck yes! Do you know how pricey mobile bartending and catering vendors can be in LA? This company is a steal considering the amount of collaboration and quality of service your receive. Punctuality - On time, super fast in setting up, even faster tearing down. I highly recommend this vendor. I planned an entire event from another state and Joanna made me feel like I had nothing to worry about on her end. Will work with her again for sure.
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
Fitch's Kitchen catered my wedding at the Wedding Tree in Point Fermin Park in San Pedro, CA. The food was delicious, it was delivered on time, and Fitch was very understanding about a hiccup with my payment method and delivered food anyway, making sure my day wasn't ruined by an oversight (that was my own doing). I had several guests comment on the food and ask where it was from. THANK YOU!!!
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! I have hired other caterers in the past, but none of them come close the experience I had with Chef Lofthouse and his team. Chef Lofthouse created a spectacular menu and it was delicious to eat. He and his team took care of all of the planning and set-up for the event. They served perfectly on time, and gave me and my guests such great service, that my guests are still emailing me to get Chef Lofthouse's phone number. You are missing out if you don't have him cater your party!
Acacia table catering is AWESOME. I’ve hired her for two of my film shoots and she kept my cast and crew happy with delicious food! We will be using her again and again!
It was a pleasure working with Lindsay. She was enthusiastic and provided us with very quick and efficient service (not to mention the food was great). I have events coming up in the future and I would definitely consider her for them.
Thank you very much for catering our UCR Chicano Latino Alumni Fundraiser. Everything was beyond what we expected. Thank you!
Jessie provided a tasty lunch that had vegetarian options. The team really enjoyed it, and she was timely in her delivery. Her charge was also reasonable. I would work with her again.
I absolutely loved my party because Iris was there to take care of everything, including the cleanup. There was an abundance of delicious appetizers and her crew served them to our guests as well as made and served the drinks. We have heard from several people how beautiful and delicious everything was. We'll certainly call Iris for our next party!
We have used Chef Mikey for both meal prep and catering. He is truly a gem. The meals he has prepped are flavorful, good variety and perfectly portioned. The last party Chef Mikey catered for us, he made jerk chicken wings that people couldn’t stop talking about. I’m craving them right now! I would highly recommend him for meal prep, private dinner parties or catering!
