We were looking for catering services for our small and intimate wedding during December 2015. Food was a big part of the event, but we also had a limited budget, so we shopped around to find someone that would fit our needs. Pete understood our menu concept right away and was able to work with our budget. He didn't fuzz about small details that we wanted to incorporate and went above and beyond to make them happen. He even provided ideas on how to improve the overall experience, not just the food. We interviewed lots of chefs and catering companies and we couldn't be happier about working with Pete. Our foodie friends and family members praised the food, the presentation was extraordinary and the service was very professional. Pete also provided support for the drinks, bringing with him a great mixologist that crafted creative drinks for the crowd. Finally, the next morning Pete prepared brunch for guests that spent the night at the venue (and ourselves) and even tho some things did not go as planned for him (the professional oven broke down!), he was able to have everything ready flawlessly by the time we woke up. Thank you Pete for taking care of such important part of our event! We are looking forward to working with you again.
I highly recommend this company for any catering services you need! My company hired Taqueria Cazadores for our Christmas party, the food was a hit! We are a dominantly Hispanic work place and everyone raved about the food especially the carnitas (best I've had). I will definitely recommend them to any one looking for great food for a great price! thank you again Evan your friends at PPandL
Incredible food. And Sat was very flexible with timing. We watched the Warriors game and Sat somehow timed it so the food was ready when we were and the food was perfect. I'll definitely use him again.
We received excellent service from A Plus Catering. The food arrived on time, was tasty, and everything went as planned. I would recommend them for any event. Very professional, friendly and affordable.
Great food (Tailgate menu) and setup! DNL catering was on time, all the food was fresh, and DNL cleaned up promptly following the event. I would highly recommend them!
My experience with Deborah for a professional business meeting was top notch. Prompt, plenty of food, catered to a picky audience (gluten free one person, another no tomatoes, another no cheese, bla bla bla). Everyone was impressed with the food, and the service. Many thanks. And it kept on giving, that night my 14 yr old freshman reminded me that it was his turn in Adviser session to bring snacks, so Wallah! - Bunt Cake to the rescue. It also turned out that another Advisor was not there and instead of the normal 8 - 10 kids they had two groups and only ONE treat. Again Bunt Cake to the rescue - he and 18 kids demolished that cake at school today and it was PERFECT! The salmon was divine - from the local fish market, and the desert, fresh peach and strawberry cobbler with homeade whip cream we are still eating.... Can't write a better story. I gave the Donuts to the staff and right now am eating cheeses and Kelly left for an evening meeting and discovered the left over pasta, so she's off with it, and we all had the rest of the salmon for dinner last night (except what's in the fridge). Masterful job! All ended well. thanks again from us all John
Celebrations by Chet Chase is a first class catering company. The food is delicious and elegantly prepared. Chet is wonderful and charming. I wholeheartedly recommend Celebrations by Chet!
I am an event planner and have worked with many catering companies in the past few years. Kitchenina is by far my best find and the catering company that I will continue to recommend to any of my future clients. Aliki is extremely kind and very accommodating. The food is top quality and their customer service is unmatched. So glad to have found this company on thumbtack! Looking forward to working with them on many future events!
Graham was a pleasure to work with during our holiday open house last winter. He quickly understood what we were looking for and provided an outstanding menu. We enjoyed his food and company during our event. Looking forward to working with him again!
I've known Grace for many years. I have been over to her house for home cooked meals that were truly gourmet, and delicious. She also prepared some food and sold it from her home. On the level of catering for large parties, I went to our friend Dave's party last month were Grace did the catering. The food was flawless, delicious, with great presentation, and great variety. I strongly recommend Grace for catering your events.

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!
I was planning a Celebration of Life service for. Very dear friend. The event location was in Walnut Creek, CA and I was in Florida. Dawn, from Aurora Catering, was so helpful in the planning of the catering for about 100 people. She took so much of the stress off of me with her advice. The food selection was delicious and well displayed. Aurora's staff was unbelievably organized, efficient and wonderful. Lindsay, who was my contact that, made everything run so smoothly I didn't have to worry about anything except circulating among my guests. I would highly recommend Aurora Catering.
An associate recommended Rainbow Chefs to provide the food for an event I was planning for a family gathering. I decided to go through with their services. There were kids and adults participating so I was a little nervous about how it would go, but everyone had a great time! It was so fun and interactive for the kids. The food was delicious! Would definitely recommend Rainbow Chefs!
Absolutely the best ever food service and presentation. I have hosted over A dozen dinner parties in the last two years with three different chefs. I will only use Lucas going foreward!!
I've used Green Chow Down catering services on several occasions - from startup events to personal parties. The food and service is amazing - home meal quality, unique recipes, and Angela always goes an extra mile to make it a memorable experience. Highly recommend.
I have always had a positive experience with the catering staff. The owner is responsive, professional and provides great service. The food is delicious and I would highly recommend DidiCoco's for your next event.
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.
Eileen was a pleasure to work with? The food was delicious, and everyone was extremely pleased. She was prompt, friendly and professional. We will definitely use her services again. Thanks Eileen!!
Ordered from Basic Catering for a company luncheon, food was excellent , on time and they worked within my budget,will order from them again.
The best food and service I have ever had, including top restaurants. How they keep everything moving, while everything is fresh and served at the correct temperature is amazing. We will definitely be back many times.
