I hadn't used thumbtack before when I inquired via a Google search, about finding a good caterer/chef. After receiving numerous responses, I checked out 3 and asked for proposals. As soon as I heard Chef Marcel's voice, I sensed his sincerity and eagerness to please and I appreciated his warmth during our business conversation. While I wasn't able to make a decision right away due to an extensive business trip abroad, I told him I would call him upon my return to the U.S. When I returned, I told him that he was competing against another caterer and he simply said "what will it take to gain your business" and I instantly knew he was the person I wanted. I told him that I would first need to taste his food before a final decision was made and he invited me to his home where inner his lovely wife a baby girl. After tasting his delicious food, I told him he had the job and 2 others, all within a month's time period. Chef Marcel aims to please and my events have all turned out beautiful with delicious food and caring service. Relationships and trust are very important to me and chef Marcel along with his wife, are now a relationship that I truly value. I will continue to use his services for the many future events that I've planned while enjoying the additional benefits of working with a "friend". Give him a call and I'm confident you will choose no other.

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 used Zen Craft for a big party at our house and everything was perfect. The food was delicious & the menu and options they offer were/are top of line. The planning process was also very streamlined and informative & Michael made sure any and all hesitations were met with an answer along with a solution. We would definitely recommend them as caterers & would work with them again in the future.

Madkins Catering catered for East Los Angeles College bookstore Department. We were having a holiday meeting; Madkins Catering was punctual and the food arrived hot and ready to serve. The staff was very friendly and professional. Madkins Catering is very cost efficient and will try to work with your set budget. I had a set company budget and Madkins Catering was able to accommodate us. Besides the food being delicious we had a good amount left over as well. We have alot more events in the near future, there's no doubt who we'll be using for catering. Thank you Delores and Madkins Catering for making our holiday meeting that much more memorable.

In the past five years my husband and I have attended several fantastic entertainment and charitable fundraisers produce by The Mark Kearney Group. Our memorable highlights include The Jewel's of France in Beverly Hills for Juvenile Arthritis hosted by Teri Hatcher , MKG Emmy suite for breast cancer hosted by Adrienne Malouff, Project Angel Food hosted by Lisa Vanderpump. I hired Chef Mark and his fabulous catering company for our wedding this April in Newport Coast California. We absolutely adore his five star Pacific Rim cuisine. The catering crew was professional, kind and captivating. It truly made our Wedding Day special.

I decided to look for a caterer for my Mom's celebration of life and my internet search lead me to Thumbtack. After inputting my needs I quickly received a response back from Tonya at Sierra Madre Catering with a detailed quote and attached menu. When I called to speak with Tonya I immediately got a good vibe from her voice. She seemed excited and eager to help plan our event and made me feel comfortable that everything would be taken care of. I am so thankful I decided to use Sierra Madre for my event. We ordered appetizers and desserts and they arrived and set everything up, brought their own trash cans and kept the tables clean as people were done eating. The staff was professional and nice and their food was DELICIOUS! Many of our guests gave feedback that the food was great and they even ran out of business cards because a lot of people were interested in having their info. At such a difficult time with the passing of a loved one, these details are important but not ones you want to worry about yourselves and Tonya and Sierra Madre staff took that burden off my shoulders and I am so thankful for that. I will recommend them to anyone in need of a caterer for any event and if I could give more than 5 stars I most definitely would!! Thank you Tonya and Sierra Madre Catering!!

Ana is a wonderful chef and caterer. Her food is very good and very reasonable. I don't think I have tasted anything she made that was not good. A few of my favorite dishes are chicken enchilada, empanadas, her salad and her cake-pops.

Edmond was able to cater our party for 25 people on very short notice. He went out of his way to understand our needs by making suggestions and took great pride in preparing a delicious meal. Several of our guests raved about the food and inquired who our caterer was. Edmond was punctual with his set up and preparation and there was plenty of food for everyone. We would recommend Gabriel's for your next party. Thanks again Edmond!

Really enjoyed Tanesha's catering. The food was of great quality and the prices were reasonable. We had a some confusion over the time of delivery (so be sure to confirm the time you want the food delivered) but besides that everything was perfect. Would recommend.

Heather is dedicated to her new one woman catering business! She had catered a friends party with appetizers and it was a great success; we loved her food and would recommend her to others! She came by my house with samples and we went over the menus. It’s nice to work with someone one on one you know. p.s. I really recommend her Savory Artichoke Heart Caramelized Onion Italian Cheese Quiche!
