I hadn't used thumbtack before when I inquired via a Google search, about finding a good caterer/chef. After receiving numerous responses, I checked out 3 and asked for proposals. As soon as I heard Chef Marcel's voice, I sensed his sincerity and eagerness to please and I appreciated his warmth during our business conversation. While I wasn't able to make a decision right away due to an extensive business trip abroad, I told him I would call him upon my return to the U.S. When I returned, I told him that he was competing against another caterer and he simply said "what will it take to gain your business" and I instantly knew he was the person I wanted. I told him that I would first need to taste his food before a final decision was made and he invited me to his home where inner his lovely wife a baby girl. After tasting his delicious food, I told him he had the job and 2 others, all within a month's time period. Chef Marcel aims to please and my events have all turned out beautiful with delicious food and caring service. Relationships and trust are very important to me and chef Marcel along with his wife, are now a relationship that I truly value. I will continue to use his services for the many future events that I've planned while enjoying the additional benefits of working with a "friend". Give him a call and I'm confident you will choose no other.

I needed a caterer for my dad's funeral reception. Spoke to other caterers but Carolina of Gourmet Lover's Catering was the only one who gave her condolences, this meant a lot to me. The full service presentation was tasteful, the food delicious and reasonably priced. There were no exta added on fees like the other caterers. I highly recommend Gourmet Lover's Catering, Boris & Carolina are a wonderful team and you will not be disappointed.

Very thankful and we fell in love the fact we can customize our menu!! That was music to our ears to a foodie couple like us!! Our menu was an around-the-world theme. We picked fresh, colorful, tasty, and bold flavors and dishes that we love. We opted for buffet style since that gave us more food options and it fit within our budget. I was hesitant with this because I am not a big fan of buffet presented in huge metal containers--it just looks too casual for me. But Monica convinced me that R&R will have the table beautifully styled with food signage and dishes served in copper metal so it would give it a more shabby chic look which I loved so I was sold! The catering staff totally listened to our modifications during the food tasting and was pleasant to work with. I loved the fact that they are very progressive in their approach to food incorporating many techniques and varied flavors!  I was so glad they didn't have the standard, run-of-the-mill wedding menu where your only options were Menu A, Menu B, and Menu C. Their food was so unique and tasty!! It's like one of those cool dishes you would see on cooking shows like Top Chef or Food Network. They give you a detailed questionnaire about food likes/dislikes, flavor profiles, and restaurants you like to frequent.  From that they work their magic and give you a very delectable menu catered to your taste buds.  HOW AWESOME IS THAT!!!! Here's our menu.  At our wedding there was a smorgasbord of appetizers: *Braised short ribs on brioche crostini with buttermilk mash and crispy roquefort cheese *Potato cake with duck confit and sour cherry compote *Sweet potato and mango samosa with curried tamarind dip *Roasted tomato soup shooter topped with basil oil & served with mini triangle grilled cheese sandwiches *Sashimi tuna on crispy cilantro scented rice cake with avocado topped with scallion and pickled ginger *Steamed lobster & crab dumplings with piquillo pepper salsa and chili oil *Potato crusted scallops over braised leeks with shiitake marmalade For entrees we had seafood and chicken paella over saffron rice, marinated skirt steak with chimichurri sauce, and butternut squash ravioli with brown butter.  Accompanying salad and sides included Farmers market chopped salad, green papaya salad, haricot vert with almonds & brown butter, and caramelized Brussels sprouts with bacon and balsamic glaze. Everything was mouthwatering goodness!!!!   Needless to say our guests raved about the food! We had an amazing time at a gorgeous venue with hands down delicious food created by a very talented staff! Kudos!

We live in Laguna Niguel, and Madkins Catering was on time and I remember saying to the waitstaff, "omg, there's still more food?! Needless to say there was so much food. Madkins Catering was upfront with me in the very beginning explaining how much of each appetizer or food item I'd actually be getting which is great. I think we adjusted the amounts a few times because I thought it was going to be too much food lol, and it ended up being still too much food.... But who's complaining? :-) My guests were very pleased with the meal and left on a very very full stomach. This company is very nice and professional and delivered exactly what I wanted. I forgot to do a review at the time of the event, but the event was about 2 weeks ago. Everyone please try them, the food is delicious and at a great price!

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.

I decided to look for a caterer for my Mom's celebration of life and my internet search lead me to Thumbtack. After inputting my needs I quickly received a response back from Tonya at Sierra Madre Catering with a detailed quote and attached menu. When I called to speak with Tonya I immediately got a good vibe from her voice. She seemed excited and eager to help plan our event and made me feel comfortable that everything would be taken care of. I am so thankful I decided to use Sierra Madre for my event. We ordered appetizers and desserts and they arrived and set everything up, brought their own trash cans and kept the tables clean as people were done eating. The staff was professional and nice and their food was DELICIOUS! Many of our guests gave feedback that the food was great and they even ran out of business cards because a lot of people were interested in having their info. At such a difficult time with the passing of a loved one, these details are important but not ones you want to worry about yourselves and Tonya and Sierra Madre staff took that burden off my shoulders and I am so thankful for that. I will recommend them to anyone in need of a caterer for any event and if I could give more than 5 stars I most definitely would!! Thank you Tonya and Sierra Madre Catering!!

Ana is a wonderful chef and caterer. Her food is very good and very reasonable. I don't think I have tasted anything she made that was not good. A few of my favorite dishes are chicken enchilada, empanadas, her salad and her cake-pops.

I am beyond grateful to Thumbtack for connecting me to Chef Keith Prante and his team at Hautè Productions Events and Catering to cater my mom's 80th birthday celebration. They are absolutely A-MAZING! Chef Prante was one of two chefs who responded to my request via Thumbtack, and I also received a personal referral. Neither of the other caterers offered ANYWHERE NEAR the quality, selections, variety and value that Hautè offered at my price point. We had our tasting today, and it absolutely sealed the deal! Everything was delicious and the presentation was outstanding. I highly recommend Hautè Productions to any potential customer who appreciates excellence, accommodation and genuine customer service.

I truly couldn't have imagined a better catering experience than West Hollywood Sausage Co. and Peter. He catered my boyfriends 30th birthday at our place and made it such a special event. First of all, his food was phenomenal. Everything from his appetizers (we got the pulled pork sliders and brie and grape quesadillas) and all of the entree dishes were incredible. People were finding me all night to ask about the catering because it was so delicious. Ive found myself craving it since. But even beyond that, he added so much to the party from how he catered it. He passed appetizers over drinks, and for dinner kept replenishing the buffet with warm and delicious food straight off of the grill. He couldn't have been more of a pleasure to work with - he made everything in planning the party very easy. On the night of, he arrived early and not only set up his grill and everything for the food, but helped me with the our rented tables and chairs and other aspects of setting up the party. I felt so at ease with his help. If you're looking for a caterer, I don't think you could do any better than Peter and West Hollywood Sausage Co. I will definitely hire them for all other events I have from here on out.

I hired G Thymes for a indoor tea party for my mother in October, 2016. She arrived early and set up these chalkboard platters that I was curious about. They were beautiful and simple. Definitely more than I was expecting. The food was luscious and wonderful. The caterer made us feel like family not just a drop off client. I did feel like the tax on my order was a bit high but the food and service was worth it. I will use them for something again soon in the future. Kevin W.
