We had an amazing service from Rob. He helped create special drinks and was flexible when I needed him to come earlier than requested. Have had many bar services and this was the best so far. Thanks Rob and company!

Marcel was EXCELLENT! I had an unusual catering job, one he hadn't done before. He was terrific at following up with me, patient when I had to delay getting back to him, and took care to understand exactly what I needed. And then he carried it out to the letter, with perfect results. And he's super easy to work with. By sheer coincidence, one of my event attendees had used his catering services just a couple of months before, and also had only glowing reviews of his food and his service. If you have need for catering or chef services, you can't go wrong by hiring Marcel for the job. I can't wait to use him again!

Rob bartended for an afternoon at my 40th poolside birthday party, expertly catering to the needs of 20 guests with diverse needs and requests. His drinks were top notch and he was proactive in asking guests what they wanted and making the pool rounds. And working with Rob was a breeze, as he was responsive to email and had helpful suggestions beforehand about the shopping and drink list. Five stars!!

Eddy was incredible! The event was in Los Feliz where any day parking is a challenge. Eddy went to the property, assessed local available parking and gave a great estimate on the number of valets which would be required to service 50+ cars. When I arrived, there were valets available, extremely helpful and polite. When leaving, my car was delivered in a most timely manner. I am a corporate catering manager in Orange County and I'm pretty anal about details. I am very impressed with the service and so were all of the guests, because I asked.

We used Zen Craft for catering services for a corporate lunch. The variety of healthy, veg-friendly, seasonal options were the reason I chose them. A decision which I'm glad I took! The honey chipotle glazed salmon were the HUGE hit I was hoping it would be. My coworkers were raving about the short ribs, and I was thrilled with the simple tomato pasta. Im half Italian and am pretty picky about pasta- I figured I'd like these okaaay, but was pleasantly surprised to find that the pasta was Perfect! Even the salad was great- fresh ingredients with a tasty meyer lemon vinaigrette. The risotto was exactly what I was expecting rich mushroom flavored a creamy risotto, the flavor was solid. And here I am at desserts... All were Delicious (brownies/blondies/choc chip sea salt cookies)- but the butterscotch budino... You guys... Ohhh. Mannn. It was the first thing I thought about when I woke up this morning and I immediately had one of the leftovers for breakfast. The rosemary crumble was such a subtle complement to the butterscotch. Unusual and really lovely. 10/10- would eat daily ;) Last little thing, which is often overlooked, but adds so much when done nicely- the presentation. Setting up delivered food in a meeting room isn't optimal for an appealing display. But I've gotta say, Zen Craft clearly put thought into even these small details. The packaging made it look more high end than typical food delivery, and the kraft paper colored sticker with their cute elephant logo labels were both attractive and clever. To top it all off, the desserts were artistically sprinkled with and arranged amongst edible flowers. What an appreciated surprise that was! Not only was the food beautiful to look at, but the edible flowers on the budino were an enjoyable teeny tiny textural pop. Least exciting detail, but important! Delivery was right on time and the driver was efficient and polite with the set up. So pleased!

I was in charge of bar services for my sister's 50th birthday and JaNae made the "job" easy for me. She was very pleasant to work with from the very beginning. She replied promptly to all my questions. She created the perfect signature drink for my sister. She and Alyssa showed up on the day of the event in a timely manner to set up, they were professionally dressed and with a vibrant, happy personality. They were a hit with all of our guests. They served delicious drinks, kept the lines to a minimum (150 guests) and overall their presence and service created a fun and positive atmosphere for our event. My family and I will definitely consider JaNae and Glamorous Drinks for any of our future bartending needs. Thank you JaNae!

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.

I hired Jill's bartending service for an event I was hosting in which we had no idea what kind of drinks we wanted. Jill was great because she took charge and helped us create a perfectly themed drink menu that was appropriate for our event. During the event, she was awesome! Not only did she keep the drinks coming but she kept the attendees entertained. Jill was truly everything you want your bartender to be!

Caren! This girl knows what's she's doing. I have a fully stocked bar at home. When I say fully stocked I mean FULLY stocked!! Caren sent me her menus which were impressive, but due to the time crunch I didn't have time to select any. I told her not to worry, that everything would be provided. She showed up and delivered. Knew how to make every drink she was asked for....on top of that she never had a line and I had about 100 people at my house. Definitely my go to girl

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.

Open Bar provided services for my grandmother's funeral and I couldn't ask for a more professional service and at the price they charged, it felt like a steal. It was so easy to book them - Brooke, one of the owners was incredibly responsive and indulged all of my questions - and communicating my needs for the event was easy and stress-free. The bartender arrived early, was dressed very professionally, and maintained an air about him that was perfect for the tone (being a funeral and all). He made sure my parents were taken care of, and kept the bar area neat. I can't recommend Open Bar enough!

Jordan is an excellent chef and caterer. He produces food that is way beyond the standard catering services. If you want cookie cutter catering go with someone else. If you want really great food at a great price stop on by or use his catering.

I hired smoking Gun bartending to do a annual halloween party me and my wife do every year. This time we wanted to make it more of a professional event, so we hired catering, security, and a Bartender by the name of Luke. I was very impressed at how Luke handled our guests needs, he even created some aweome spooky themed drinks off the top of his head. I as well as all my guest of about 95 friends and family had a amazing halloween bash and making the decision to hire Smokin Gun was one of the main reasons. Thank you luke for you’re fun attitude and tasty drinks. Defenitly recomend him the his service if you can book him!
