Baja's Tacos was BEST QUALITY AND BEST SERVICE. The owner really cares about his customers and his reputation. All of my 75 guest said Baja Tacos was by far the best taco caterer they had ever had. My guest have used many local caterers in the past and I am still receiving excellent feedback on how Great the food was. I would highly recommend this company. Thank you Baja Taco.....

Mike catered an event for our group at Fallbrook Winery last Sunday and did a fantastic job! We took 42 people from our Wine Club here in Orange County down to the winery and he catered lunch. The food was fantastic and paired very well with the Fallbrook wines, the price was great and Mike was very easy to work with. Highly recommend him and Gourmet Your Way, he'll be the first one I call for our next event!

Amazing! Sit down dinner for 32. Everything perfect. People asked me for her card. First time hiring a catered dinner won't be the last. She made the party a celebration from the specialty drinks and passed hors d'oeuvres to the fillets and fish and through to dessert. Lilian, YOU made my husband's birthday special! Thank You so much.

Chef Shawna is amazing! I planned a 15-person retreat in Oceanside over a long weekend. We wanted lunches and dinners brought in, but we didn't need serving service. When I requested a quote from her, she also provided a full (mouthwatering) menu within 24 hours, maybe less. She was very accommodating to our handful of 'special diet' attendees, and her pricing was far cheaper than going out for meals. Everyone RAVED about the delicious food, and she was such a pleasure to work with. If you need a personal chef, you won't be disappointed with Chef Shawna!

Everybody loved the food. There was plenty and we even had leftovers. The caterers didn't mind all the stairs they had to take to carry their stove, tables etc. We will hire them again for sure when we are in the area.

I contacted Sage Bleu based on the reviews I saw here. Although there were other caterers with more reviews, I was looking for a talented caterer, not jaded by decades in the business, who would go the extra mile to deliver superlative food and service. The reviews I saw here painted a picture of incredible food and personalized, unobtrusive, caring service, so I called Sage Bleu. When I spoke with Lavonne, I casually mentioned a few dishes that only the most savvy food aficionado would know. She subtly let me know that she not only knew what those dishes were, but knew how to prepare them. SOLD! I had Sage Bleu cater a casual neighborhood get together as well as a white tablecloth dinner for a dozen finicky business associates. The food selections were appropriate for both crowds. The food, wine pairings and presentation were impeccable. Service began exactly at the appointed time and clean-up was to the highest white glove standard. I cannot recommend Sage Bleu highly enough!

He is a great person to work with. He brings a positive attitude to what he does. Impressed with how he uses simple, organic and fresh ingredients to make delicious meals. He has this great bechamel sauce for lasagna! In fact, everything he has ever made for us was of excellent quality.

Chef Leslie Ann prepared an outstanding St. Patrick's Day dinner for our community. We had 80 people attend and everyone raved about her food from the perfectly cooked carrots (usually they are too hard) to the delicious corned beef. In fact a number of people came up to me afterwards to remark, they didn't like corned beef but took it out of courtesy and loved it! What I especially liked was how willing Leslie Ann was to adapt the menu to our needs. I already have her booked for another dinner for my Rotary and she came up with two terrific menus based on my theme.

We had a phenomenal Thanksgiving Dinner prepared and delivered by BAPS catering. We were expecting about 20 people for our holiday dinner and BAPS catering delivered a wonderful meal that everyone loved. The turkey was moist, the vegetables, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and pumpkin cheesecake were delicious. Needless to say, we had enough food to satisfy everyone and still had some great Thanksgiving leftovers. We would definitely recommend BAPS catering for everyone who wants tasty food cooked just the way you like. Thanks for helping us make our holiday dinner such a success!

When we were looking for a professional to cater our clubhouse event, we contacted five companies. Creative Catering from Temecula was one of those five. From the start, we were very comfortable talking and working with the owner, Tanya. She is extremely friendly and accommodating. Tanya provided us with sample meals to taste and was able to provide guidance from start to finish. As our guest list grew from 30 to 60 she was able to be very flexible to whatever changes needed to be made. Every time we had a question or menu change, Tanya responded promptly and professionally. On the evening of the clubhouse social, Tanya and her assistant were very punctual. The set-up, service and clean-up went flawlessly. Feedback from our club members was very positive. Our guests commented to us how well the meals tasted and how professional Tanya and her assistant were. The bottom line is that we would highly recommend Creative Catering and we will be looking forward to using them in the future. NJ and LJ (55+ Club)

Michael and his team at URBN went above and beyond to make our corporate event a success! Their Pizzas were delicious and very well received by the entire team! Plus the fact that they bake them on the spot in their oven creates an unique experience. I would highly recommend them to anyone and will certainly use them again. Thanks on behalf of the entire Fox team!

Pret (Monique) catered a dinner party for my Board of Directors recently with a delicious meal. Monique made everything so easy for me, thought of every detail! It was a huge relief for me to just "host" this lovely evening, with Pret doing all of the work! Fabulous pasta and amazing layered dessert!!
