If we could give Marcel 10 STARS, we would! What an amazing experience from the first phone call until the end of the event he catered for us. Marcel was prompt - efficient - he never missed a beat - super easy to communicate with - cared about what we wanted - he went to every length to do exactly what we wanted. We felt so taken care of. Marcel and his crew were TOP NOTCH! We will never go with anyone else - this man is spectacular and so much fun! Our guests loved interacting with him as well as my family. Oh and the food he prepared?!!!!!! Oh my word - people at the party LOST THEIR MINDS! The food was out of this world! You will not be disappointed if you choose Marcel - you will be the most talked about event all year long! Efficient - went the extra mile - worked with my husband who is extremely picky and particular - wonderful staff - fun - professional - perfect choice!
The caterer showed up early to set up and had the food ready when it was time to eat. The food tasted great. A lot of guests mentioned they enjoyed the food. I didmt worry about a thing because he was very helpful as well.
Carolina was wonderful to work with and plan our event food. She really worked with the budget and then Chef Boris delivered delicious and pleasantly prepared food. It was a great experience working with Gourmet Lovers and the food was perfect.
My husband and I hired Madkins catering for a family weekend in the desert (La Quinta). We requested a bbq for the first night, and an early Easter dinner for the second night. I expected the meals to be good but not great (I haven’t really had an excellent catering experience). However, the meals were OUTSTANDING. Chef Aviarie is truly talented, and our entire family and guests talked about the interesting flavors and quality of the food. I still can’t get over how Chef Aviarie and Frank prepared everything from scratch in our kitchen in just a few hours! We requested a hefty amount of dishes, and they pulled it off without a sweat! The team is incredibly kind, professional and a pleasure to have cooking in our kitchen. They even managed to entertain our 6 year old nephew while they were cooking. I should also note their rates are very reasonable! I can’t say enough good things about our experience. I am happy to serve as a personal reference in case anyone wants my feedback. Madkins Catering can provide my email address. OUTSTANDING JOB! We look forward to hiring you again in LA or in the desert!
The food was delicious and they prepared at the last minute and delivered on time for my event. Great service and food.
It has been a pleasure to work with Marc. The meals he has prepared have been delicious and deliveries have been right at my door when I expect them. Fantastic!
Susan is a dream to work with. Her "special sauce" is her creative flair. Susan is a top notch professional. Definitely hire her for your next event. You and your guests will be thrilled with her delicious and unique drinks, appetizers, meals and desserts.
Chef Mark is very experienced and qualified, and creates very special menus with your preferred ingredients and for every occasion, like the Thanksgiving inspired meal he prepared for us and our dinner guests last November. He is also a pleasure to talk to, so, as a customer I had a wonderful experience since the making of all dishes to the actual dinner time!
Chef Mumsie decadent and over the top skills allows me to enjoy all meals of the day and after say wow this meal was superb. She is down to earth and overall easy going when it comes to preparing meals. I would suggest her to anyone looking for delicious food and a good experience
Tonya was great in the planning process. She was responsive and really helpful in menu planning. The food was a hit! The only hiccup was on the day of. Due to forgetting one of the courses at home and traffic on the freeways, our meal wasn't set up until 30 minutes after the agreed upon time. While these things happen, it did affect our overall experience.
Chef Pena did an excellent job preparing the meal and educating all 9 guests on proper food preparation, seasonings and his journey through the culinary arts. I was very impressed with the meal (Seared Wild Alaskan Salmon w/ crab stuffed yukon gold mashed potatoes and green bean/ red bell pepper medley. The meal was finished off with a cherry/chocolate cookie pie thing (whatever it was, it was Awesome ). Wonderful dinner party experience. I will definitely request again!
Alexis catered our annual holiday corporate party in our home for 30 people. Everything was perfect. She has an extensive menu to choose from. The passed appetizers were very delicious - potato chorizo empanadas, beef sliders, and spicy tuna krisps. The holiday menu was outstanding - hand-carved prime rib, turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sautéed green beans, field green salad with pomegranate, goat cheese and candied pecans. She also provided a fabulous dessert bar with mini fruit tarts, cheese cakes, brownies, Christmas cookies, and flan. Her presentation was beautiful with a beautiful gingerbread house that I got to keep. Most impressive was her excellent servers who helped to set up our tables, decorate the tables, prepare the food and serve. They also served cocktails and prepared a wonderful signature holiday drink. They arrived on time and left my kitchen in immaculate condition. Put away every dish, cleaned the ovens, stove and mopped the floor. They were so professional and helpful. Our guests loved the food. We've had holiday parties at very nice restaurants the past 12 years but everyone agreed this was the best party because of the food and service they received from Alexis and her team. I would not hesitate to hire Alexis for another event. She is fantastic. Thank you Alexis!
I planned a personal cooking lesson for my boyfriend's birthday, and couldn't have asked for a better experience! Chef Keith took time to get to know exactly what we were looking for, and he was flexible in creating our personalized 3 course menu. He showed up to my house on time, and was prepared with all of the food and cooking tools. He even cleaned up afterwards and left my kitchen spotless. The food was amazing! Chef Keith is very knowledgable about cooking. I would highly recommend hiring Chef Keith! It was absolutely worth it!!
We hired Danesh for a party of 14. She put together a superb event. First, Daneen is a gem of a human being. She is wonderful to work with and makes everything easy. Second, she is an outstanding chef. The meal she prepared for my guests, including hors d'Oeuvres, mains, and desserts, was most delicious. The pairings were great, the tastes both subtle and bold. Third, Daneen has a great eye for making the plate look cookbook perfect. She is wonderful, and I cannot wait for the chance to hire her again.
Segars culinary did a phenomenal job last night catering a very special dinner. Their attention to detail and ability to combine art and food in one amazing meal was second to none. They far exceeded our expectations and I would - and WILL - have them again to cook again soon. Without a question one of the best meals we have had in memory.
I was just 4 months out of treatment from an aggressive breast cancer, and at 37 and single didn't have the best eating habits. Well, OK downright terrible. Recovering from chemo and radiation had left me with no energy to do anything, yet I knew the importance of my diet to avoid my high chances of reoccurance being triple negative. Since Carmi came into my life I literally can feel the difference in my energy level purely from all the great nutritious food she specifically prepared for me.I have more energy, I'm actually sleeping better, and I don't have stress out about food every day. She's gotten to know exactly what I do and don't like and custome makes each meal for me specifically. I've tried one if those big delivery companies and definitely did not get anything even close to like that !! I love the personal touch, and I'm never bored. I feel like I've moved back home and my mom is making me dinner every night !Shes knowledgable on how to fight diseases with nutrition and keeps that in mind when preparing my meals which is so great knowing not only am I getting a delicious meal but it's actually helping me not hurting me. I love the ease of no longer having to worry about what to eat! Having to go grocery shopping, or spend all that extra money on ordering out every night. Her food is delicious and stays fresh till the last meal. She somehow manages to make clean healthy food that isn't boring and bland. This woman could open a resturaunt except then she d be too busy and couldn't make my food so maybe just a small one ;). Truly don't know what I'd do without Carmi, she's become such an important addition to my life. So glad I found her !! Thanks Carmi!!!
Everything was well prepared, and delicious! Delivery was punctual and Acacia was a pleasure to work with
We just hosted a birthday party for 27 people and hired Greg. He was very very quick with his response and kept me updated about everything. He was very patience in answering my thousands of questions ! We worked together to create a very nice menu. He was very generous and offered me lots of choices. The food he prepared was delicious, fresh, and looked beautiful. The presentation was superb!! He was on time and left my kitchen shinning clean. I would highly recommend him for any event. He really does go above and beyond.
Wonderful meal. Food was beautiful and delicious. She was kind and very professional. I would definitely use her again.
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!
