I don't even know where to begin. Chef Pete and his crew were TOP NOTCH. We had our 12/9/2017 wedding at the Historic 16th Street Train Station in Oakland, and there were dozens of challenges about the space. No running water, no electricity, the rooms are made of marble so the atmosphere inside runs cold, you can only access the space with the property manager by appointment only, etc etc etc. Chef Pete went above and beyond our expectations with the food. We had a few big time food snobs (we had a Rockefeller and a Hewlett of HP at our wedding, among many others) and they were praising the food to no end. People stopped me ALL night to tell me how wonderful the food was. Chef Pete created amazing dishes for nearly 200 guests. Chef Pete not only provided the best food imaginable, he filled in a tons of gaps with a crew of servers, bartenders, etc. He was the whole package. Highly recommend his services!!!

We wanted to schedule a cooking lesson as a birthday gift for our 17 year old son, who says he would like to attend culinary school after he receives a PhD in Chemistry, and Chef Rocco was truly a perfect match! Throughout the entire process (interviewing, scheduling, and instructing) Chef Rocco was friendly and attentive, and his calm and organized style set the tone for a very relaxing yet educational session of making pasta (and a sauce, of course!) from scratch. He continuously made sure that each of us had ample time and opportunity to practice every skill that he demonstrated. He provided both specific and practical guidance, and he delivered limited but valuable critique in a very kind, thoughtful, and encouraging way. While he instructed and engaged each of us in making the recipes, Chef Rocco not only tailored the lesson to our son's interest (and our goals for the session) but also treated our son as if he was already on his way to becoming a chef. Whether it is true remains unseen, but Chef Rocco clearly understands the essence and effect of good teaching. As for the homemade fettuccini pasta with fresh vegetable sauce? Magnifico! It was so good that we ordered the pasta attachments for our Kitchen-Aid mixer!

Great food and great experience. The two chefs working our holiday party couldn't have been kinder or more patient. Everyone loved the food, and the boss told me after they left that she would like to bring them back again next year. Thank you for a lovely experience!

From set up to finish, our meal was not only attractively displayed, everything​was delicious. The chef's choice meatballs were the main hit of the afternoon. We will definitely use Passionate Plates again and again.

I had the pleasure of having Chet Chase cater for me in Florida. Chet catered numerous corporate events for me in my showroom in the Design Center of The Americas. He could cater a luncheon for 10 or a dinner for 25.Everyone always raved about him. His creations were delicious and his presentation superb. Chet also catered personal dinner parties in my home. He took care of everything from planning the menu to selecting party favors for me. Chet also helped me with my diet. He prepared lunches and dinners for me that were tasty and nutritious.I am not an easy person to please but when it comes to Chet Chase he is tremendous when it comes to cuisine and planning

I hired Chef Albert as both nutritionist and chef. Meals are low fat, low carb ... and delicious! I have lost significant weight each week simply because the food is 'untamed', flavorful, fresh, and filling. Albert is not only an incredible chef, he is a great weight loss coach. If you are a foodie who needs to lose weight, this is the only way to go!

Angela was very helpful right from the beginning. Once she and I spoke, determined a budget, she proposed some wonderful selections, and the evening was divine. Having a few people who have gluten-free diets, the menu planning was extremely important to me - and every item was gluten free AND delicious! Angela is able to help rent anything you need, so that isn't a worry. She has a wonderful assistant who is warm and friendly. I would highly recommend Angela's business for your catering event.

Chef Lovelace is everything you would hope for in a private chef - incredibly talented, professional, good natured, and easy to work with. The food was delicious - so much depth and texture as well as beautiful plated. His kitchen setup was efficient and left the kitchen spotless. And his menu creations are thoughtful, refined, and well-balanced. Chef Lovelace was gracious enough to customize our meal based on preferences and diet and even suggested wine pairings for each course. Our group of women could not have asked for a better fine-dining experience in the comfort our own home. A much preferred experience than dining in a 5-star restaurant. We highly recommend Chef Lovelace and look forward to using him at our next occasion!

I went on a girls' trip to Napa Valley. I wanted to hire Chef Cheri for our first night dinner so we could relax. She told me upfront she would be out of town but she would be happy to assist us. She informed me that she had a vast network. Over the next 2 weeks she connected me with a chef and a photographer. She followed up and was very timely. We were so pleased when we arrived at the home and she had 3 bottles of wine waiting on us. She also had baked us custom red velvet cupcakes with elephant decorations (DST)...they were amazing. The chefs she connected us with were on time. In fact, they beat us to the home. They were so professional and made a delicious dinner for us and provided table service. The photographer she connected us with was punctual and took the most fabulous photos. He was very easy to work with. So I would call Chef Cheri anytime I needed any service in the Bay area. She is top notch and provides world class service. I felt like her family by the time we finished.

I had family in-town and so I hired James to cook us a special dinner over Labor Day weekend. On fairly short notice, he put together several menu options that were friendly to a variety of different diet restrictions and preferences. I had the hardest time choosing what to have, but James was very accommodating and responsive! We had a very diverse menu of tuna poke, calamari, lobster salad, rib eye, and cauliflower. Additionally, I requested a special dessert at the last minute and he was more than happy to accommodate. Highly recommend James for his expertise in what he does and his professionalism. Would hire him again in a heartbeat!

So glad we hired Dan from Mise En Place for our most recent dinner party! After discussing options with him, we went with the Kokkari-inspired menu on his website. It tasted exactly like the dishes we've had there so many times. Amazing. We've already booked him for another party in a few weeks. So happy we found Mise En Place on Thumbtack — Dan's now our go-to home chef!

We hired Karla for a long weekend of cooking breakfast and dinner for 10-16 people at each meal at our home in Santa Cruz. We didn't know what to expect entirely, but Karla was more than we hoped for. Super nice, very punctual, very honest, gives a good value for the money and most of all Karla is a truly wonderful chef. She can cook anything you can imagine and she does it all well. Our dinners included perfectly cooked New York steaks, lasagna, vegetables, lots of items for carb-conscious folks, etc. Her menus were fantastic and we have a ton of great food. Best of all Karla cleans up. I would give Karla 10 stars on a 5 star chart. Some of the others took pictures of the "spread" Karla created so I don't have those handy to post. Karla is a gem in Santa Cruz and we will be using her in the future. Dave & Lynn and Cindy & John Santa Cruz, CA

We had a fantastic experience hiring John, and I would unreservedly recommend him. I was hosting an 8-person dinner party with a group of international friends at a rental property in Sonoma in mid November. He was very responsive to my fairly vague request on Thumbtack, instantly proposing a delicious-sounding 4 course meal with appetizers that took account of my preference for mostly vegan dishes. He was flexible and easy to work with at a very reasonable price point. He arrived on time with his wife to help, and they cooked, served and cleaned very professionally with a great friendly attitude. I would certainly hire him again.

GREAT SERVICE We got married yesterday and had to post a review immediately because Affordable Chef was so great! Chef Mark was punctual in replying to my questions before the big day, which, as an out-of-town bride, was very reassuring! At the last minute, Chef Mark was unable to attend the reception, but his on-site chef made delicious food, and the staff were phenomenal! There was one staff member in particular who took an interest in my Husband and I. She told us that we were her "celebrities for the day," made sure we ate appetizers before we walked in, escorted us to the buffet first, and was constantly checking on our drinks. She also took an interest in our families, leading many people to tell us how amazing she was! The bartender Chef Mark sent was also lovely, knew her stuff, and made our signature cocktails perfectly! All in all, a great experience and a company we would trust our next big event to!

Olive Cater team are simply the best! They catered for me an office party and my parents 40th anniversary. Even though the menus were totally different both events were a success! Arkadi is a talented and creative young chef. His food is beautifully presented and it tastes amazing! I got many compliments on those events and I look forward to having Arkadi and Elinor cater my next event.

After much searching, we finally found the Pan Asian food we were looking for (Chinese, Japanese, Thai and Vietnamese) for a world traveler's Celebration of Life. The food and Chef Ty were both fabulous! The appetizers, complemented by delicious sauces, were a huge hit with our guests. The produce was fresh and delicious. And RCs were not only able to pull this together on very short notice (~1 week) with grace and aplomb (thanks to Lana as well), but they also created an attractive presentation in an unfortunately small space. I would definitely use Rainbow Chefs again, and will recommend them to those looking for exceptionally tasty and healthy food. Five stars!
