This was a wonderful experience from the very beginning. I received excellent customer service each time I called with a question(s). Evan is very personable and an fabulous cook. We had the BBQ dinner menu catered for my husband's 50th birthday and it was amazing! The brisket is to die for!! I had so many of our guests ask who catered this party as all the food was scrumptious. Thank you, Evan, and the rest of the staff for making this event perfect! We will certainly use your services again! And you may be hearing from some of our friends as well! Cheers, Kym Morganstern

Great meal created by Sat! Would definitely hire him again for our event. Even at a very short notice he was able to deliver exactly what we needed and our entire party loved the food!

Michael is fantastic! I've hired Michael to cater several events over the years that I've hosted and he has always been proactive, punctual, and professional. And the food and decor have been a huge hit with my guests every time. I've worked with several caterers in the past and have been disappointed. Often times with past caterers I've used, the food and/or beverage is mediocre or runs out, or there aren't enough stemware to keep up with usage. Michael knows exactly how to plan while being cost effective. He is 100% reliable; I won't use anyone else! Thank you Michael!

Debbie was awesome to work with. She was very quick to respond to emails and came up with a creative menu for my party. The food was the hit of the party, and no one went home hungry! The food not only tasted great, but looked beautiful. I would definitely recommend and use Debbie again.

I can't say enough about Andrea's catering service. Food was not only DELICIOUS it was unique. A feast of spicy flavors. Each dish was well prepared--cooked to perfection. Andrea was very easy to communicate with. Very patient even through my busy event preparation stage. She arrived on time on each of our meetings, returned every phone call or email. Most importantly, she easily set up all our food for our garden party in very timely fashion. I'll definitely use Andrea again and highly recommend her for all catering events!!

I have never used a caterer before so I really did not know what to expect. I had an idea of what I wanted and a vision of how I wanted things to go. Deborah and her assistant went above and beyond my expectations and vision. We discussed a plan prior to the party and I let her know I just did not want to worry about anything and be able to enjoy the party. She allowed me to do just that and the service she provided was excellent. I unfortunately had some stragglers come in late and she eagerly fixed them a plate with no questions asked. Everything was just as clean, if not cleaner, when they left as it was when they arrived. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is thinking of having a caterer at their party.

Best experience ever! I hosted my daughter's first birthday party and hired Kitchenina for the catering. The owners, Kostas and Aliki are professionals, very polite and will go out of their way to service you. They came on time for the party. The food was warm and delicious. I was raised in Greece and their Giant Mediterranean spicy beans are the best I have ever tasted:) The lamb roast, the tacos, the rice bowls and all the dishes we ordered are extremely tasty. I love they offer a variety of quality food from different cuisines and that it tastes home made. I would definitely recommend them and hire them again.

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!

Excellent experience; Annicette put together an appropriate menu quickly and with no fuss, was easy to communicate with, and executed efficiently. We were late getting back to the house but she let herself in and got started on the prep work and was able to adjust the timing of the meal. All the food was delicious and Annicette was a delight to be with. Highly recommended.

We hired Farm to Table (Zachary Albright) to come to our house and prepare a meal for a birthday dinner for 14 people. The food was ABSOLUTELY amazing I wouldn't change a thing. The menu was extensive and the price was reasonable. I would suggest that he bring a helper as it was a little overwhelming for one person to prepare. I would highly recommend Farm to Table.
