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!

On Saturday I attended a dinner that she catered. There were 70 people or so. It was a 4 course meal and it was delicious. Well prepared and well presented and most importantly served ON TIME!

It was a great experience having rogue bbq cater for our family event. Everyone really enjoyed the various types of food, and the smoked brisket was as delicious as could be!

Monterey is an enthusiastic & extraordinarily talented Chef preparing food that is pleasing to the eye as well as to the palate. From a buffet lunch where she created beautiful & scrumptious dishes that made our taste buds dance to an authentic Moroccan Feast that transported us all back to Marrakech, her food has never failed to delight us and our guests. I confidently recommend her.

    Flavor Affinity and Chef Baker came highly recommended by a co-worker of mine.  I decided to use this service because Chef Baker was not only the first to respond to my email,  (I sent out the same email to 3 private chef/caterers) but had the most value built into his quote. He had pre-built packages but ultimately allowed us to design the whole menu! We chose a 4 course option and could not have been happier with the food, ambiance, and decor.  Lastly, as the party began to wind down, I noticed that almost the whole service area and glassware was cleaned up without anyone noticing. It was a truly impressive evening and Flavor Affinity comes highly recommended from myself and surely anyone who has had the pleasure to work with them.

    Julianna was very professional in setting up all details of our event and gave a discount for the number of people we had at our event. She wrote out a very detailed contract to what would be served, time they would arrive to set up and to start serving our guests. She went over and beyond when she included a sweet and special treat for our daughter that was a spectacular surprise, Chocolate Covered Strawberries at no additional charge! Jorge the chef's meat was amazing and all the fixings! In addition they served quesadillas as an appetizer and Julianna brought them out on a tray to serve our guests! She also made a menu and asked for a pic to include! Like I said she went over and beyond! Everyone enjoyed the food, service and people! All wanting to use this company for their catering needs! Thank You Takobar!

    Chris catered an event at our home for roughly 40 people and everything went extremely well. He was right on schedule and had everything under control which impressed us. The food was amazing and most (if not all) of my guests commented on how much they enjoyed the food and presentation. Everything went smoothly from start to finish. Having Chris there let us actually enjoy a party at our home for once! I whole heartedly recommend Chris.
