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.
Jennine was great to work with! She was very accommodating for all of our needs and was easy to get a hold of and communicate with. She was able to work within our budget, provide all of the equipment and utensils we needed and offered the type of food we wanted. Our company was having our annual summer party for our employees and families. We were looking for a company to come out to the park that we reserved and offer a afternoon southern BBQ. Jennine's team arrived on time, were fully prepared and very nice! The food was great! We had BBQ, chicken, Tri-tip, Hot Dogs, Corn, Beans, Veggie Skewers, and Potato salad. Everything was prepared fresh and presentation was great. There was so much food that everyone was able to take some home with them! Our company will definitely keep A Plus Catering in mind for our next event! Thank you Jennine and Team!
We used Debbie to cater our office holiday luncheon. We loved working with her every step of the way. From the beginning she was enthusiastic to talk with us and very helpful in planning out the menu. She was fast getting back to us with any questions and requests we had. She was accommodating with our special requests and making sure we had everything we needed/wanted. Most importantly though, THE FOOD WAS AMAZING! Everything was homemade and delicious, our employees were still talking about it the next week. One of our dishes was a roasted turkey and it was incredibly moist, so good. The deserts we all so tasty (a chocolate cake, apple crumble, and pumpkin pie) and she made homemade whipped cream to go on top...YUUUM. Debbie and Made with Love catering was a delight to work with and we definitely plan to use her for future events. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Andrea handled so many unbelievable misfortunes so very well and took care of our team in an outstanding way. I received rave reviews on the food and beautiful centerpiece for dinner. Her food is delicious and her passion shows through in both her food and work ethic. She was extremely flexible in creating a menu that works for our guests and within our budget. The Senorita Gourmet experience is a special one; it would have been good as-is for any of my personal parties though we had to pare it down a tiny bit for our corporate guests. Overall, a wonderful experience and I'll definitely connect with her for future catering events!
Deborah is amazing! She catered a family brunch a few weeks ago and everything was wonderful. All the food was organic and locally sourced. She makes the best quiches I have every had! All my family were impressed With the beautiful layout of food. I'm in love with quiche and carry. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for catering.
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!
My husband forgot to tell me he had agreed to host a cocktail party for 40 guest only 8 days away. When I talked to Graham he said he was available and within a day he had a menu and some suggestions about the bar.Graham arrived at our apartment in S.F. 2 hours before the event and just made everything so easy and and gracious that the party seemed like it had been planned way in advance. Graham served small bites of very tasty canapes and wonderful french style sliders that satisfied everyone. The whole evening was a success from set up to clean up and I was able to enjoy being the hostess and not worry about anything. Graham makes eating good food a total joy and I look forward to catering future parties with him as the Chef. Carole
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.
Grace cooked outstanding food (salmon, prosciutto/melon, eggplant, citrus salad) and provided an all-around amazing experience - customizing the menu to fit our tastes! Thank you so much Grace! I will recommend you to everyone looking for a personal chef/catering!
Joshua is an extremely talented chef with an impressive culinary background. We met and spoke to nearly dozen chefs and catering establishments. By the time I talked to Joshua it felt like we were never going to find the right chef for our wedding. We didn’t want a conventional menu, and we were seeking a creative chef with farm to table approach. By end of my initial chat with Joshua, I knew he was the right chef. We met him in his Napa kitchen for a tasting and everything tasted and looked delicious. He is extremely accommodating, with a creative touch to create an amazing menu. We had our wedding at our house in Walnut Creek. His team was great with the setup, service, and clean up. His Salmon Tartar, and Cherry Gazpacho shooters were a huge hit. He got more than few compliments from our guests about the food. His aged chicken and steak are exquisite. My husband and I are both Foodies, and we were so happy with the food and the service. We highly recommend Chef Joshua.
Rose Johnson Catering was my party partner for our son’s engagement celebration last weekend in Orinda. The party was a huge success, and Rose and her team deserve much credit for the success. Rose responded to my Thumbtack inquiry with a prompt, thorough, and reasonable bid. However, after viewing her beautiful website, I replied to Rose that while I personally thought her menus were perfection, my son had specified that he did not want the food for his party to be “too fancy.” I told Rose the party would be a casual afternoon affair on our deck and I feared her culinary talents would be wasted on my son and my husband. Rose persevered, pointing out in her reply that she could do a barbecue with a southwestern flavor. The food need not be "fancy," she observed, but it should be tasty. And she sent me a custom menu that my son, his fiancée, my sisters, my husband and I all proclaimed perfect, including seared medium rare tri-tip of beef with chimichurri sauce, grilled cilantro chicken with tortillas, chipotle laced potato salad, and Mexican rice, bean, and corn salad. But Rose did not stop with sending me the menu; she said she would use my kitchen and grill on my deck, ensuring the food would be fresh as well as tasty. And after I hired her, she came to my home to check out my kitchen, my deck, and my grill and advised me on renting and setting up dining rounds and serving tables, as well as how to ensure good traffic flow for 50 guests. Rose is a real party expert, and I am not, so her advice was very much appreciated. The day of the party, Rose, Floricel and Esteban arrived a full two hours early and took charge. I hired Rose Johnson Catering for the food, which they delivered beautifully. As it turned out, they helped with the entire party, going above and beyond in many instances and showing poise and flexibility in the face of surprises, like my son’s decision to give a speech and set off a round of champagne toasts before dessert. Rose poured the champagne herself. Several guests asked me during the party: Who catered this? Who is your caterer? I happily provided several referrals to Rose Johnson Catering. Guest comments about the food were very positive: Mike: “The tri-tip was great.” Helen: “The grilled chicken was fabulous.” Kay: “I loved the potato salad. And the guacamole was wonderful.” Liz: “So nice to have so many dishes gluten-free.” Cindy: “The brownies were amazing. I told them so.” Bill: “Those parfaits were a big hit.” Matt: “Great food! Great service!” There was plenty of food for 50 guests, even with 1/3 of them being hungry 20-something friends of my son’s from high school and college. We even had leftovers, which Rose packed up and left in my refrigerator, along with leaving my kitchen cleaner than she found it. My husband, son, future daughter-in-law and I made a brunch of the leftovers the next day, sharing the delicious food and happy memories of a wonderful party. Best of all, this was the first party I’ve ever hosted where I had a great time myself. I don’t think I’ll have another big party again without booking Rose Johnson Catering!

Michelle put together an amazing 4-day spread for our company's off-site in South Lake Tahoe. Every meal was executed with precision, care, and fresh seasonal ingredients -- there's nothing more you could ask for. We loved Michelle's warm personality and she was a pleasure to chat with between meals and throughout service. The highlight of our trip were our meal times and we were pleasantly surprised course after course. When we get the chance, we'll be booking her again. We can't say enough good things about Michelle, she really was a gem and we were lucky to find her!
Ania prepared a very delicious meal for our party of 12. We were staying in Santa Rosa in a beautiful home. It was so nice to be able to enjoy this home in the evening and enjoy a fabulous dinner prepared by Ania!
Annicette is an amazing chef. Everything we needed to be cooked for our party, she cooked it well and the presentation was perfect! Thank you
Zack did an OUTSTANDING job of catering my sweethearts birthday. He even completely changed the menu a week before the event and pulled it off wonderfully. I would highly recommend him!
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.
We recently hired Eileen and her staff with What's Cookin to cater a backyard luau party. From beginning to end, she was very easy to work with. The bottom line is that her food was AMAZING! What a talent!! Our party guests raved about the dishes she prepared. Since the party was themed, we worked together to come up with the perfect selections for a summer luau. Her staff that worked the party with her were super friendly and smiley, professional, and instinctively knew how to "be there" for our guests needs. As the hosts of the party, my husband and I were able to focus entirely on our guests, which is exactly what we were looking for. We were all very impressed with everything, and are certain we found our new favorite caterer! Thanks Eileen and your staff for a job well done!
My daughter had a great birthday party because of basic catering everything went great.
Amazing food and an amazing person! Chef Niko catered a party at my house last night and it was perfect! The food was outstanding! She is so easy to work with. I would definitely hire her again. If I could give more than 5 stars I would!
Alta has catered many many wonderful meals for me, and it was not easy. What I mean is that my guests include vegans, vegans gluten free, reg gluten free, vegetarians, some only eat chicken, some only eat fish and some are allergic to almost anything. Magically, Alta and Alta Cuisine creates a menu where everyone is happy. Plus the food is consistently fabulous. I would recommend Alta and her catering company without hesitation. YUM YUM for Alta Cuisine!!
