We had a Company Picnic with a short turn around time on 8/11/16 and we called Made With Love Catering and spoke to Debbie Dittman. Debbie was so kind and worked with us because we did not know how many attendees intitally. She was very accommodating and made everything feel less stressful. Our picnic turned out to be about 160 people. Remember this was set up in about 9 business days. Debbie was amazing in the business end. Now for the food feed back. The food was AMAZING! Lots of food, she worked within our budget and we received lots of thumbs up from attendees. I would recommend Made With Love for business or personal catering. Cheers! Frances

This was my first experience ordering catering service so I wasn't sure what to expect. Debbie did a great job for our group. The food was delicious and plentiful. Debbie worked with some special criteria to make the deliveries to us but was on time and well prepared. Thank you Debbie for the great food and all your hard work!

We hired Paul Michael Signature Catering to cater a Memorial/Celebration for our mother. To honor our mothers passion for different cultures we wanted to serve 4 different types of cuisine and I knew it would challenging to for a caterer to deliver all or them at a high level, but chef Paul was able to, from homemade chorizo meatballs, ahi sushi and french pastries in addition to a dozen other appetizers, all were so delicious and the high quality ingredients shone through in the flavor of each item. The creme brulee was one of the best i have had. His staff was professional kind and attentive with out being intrusive in any way and kept the tables full of fresh food. I was very relieved I did not have to do or worry about anything once the event began. If I were catering an event in the Sacramento area I would hire him again.

Joshua is an extremely talented chef with an impressive culinary background. We met and spoke to nearly dozen chefs and catering establishments. By the time I talked to Joshua it felt like we were never going to find the right chef for our wedding. We didn’t want a conventional menu, and we were seeking a creative chef with farm to table approach. By end of my initial chat with Joshua, I knew he was the right chef. We met him in his Napa kitchen for a tasting and everything tasted and looked delicious. He is extremely accommodating, with a creative touch to create an amazing menu. We had our wedding at our house in Walnut Creek. His team was great with the setup, service, and clean up. His Salmon Tartar, and Cherry Gazpacho shooters were a huge hit. He got more than few compliments from our guests about the food. His aged chicken and steak are exquisite. My husband and I are both Foodies, and we were so happy with the food and the service. We highly recommend Chef Joshua.

Working with Joshua was a great experience! I do events all over the country and rarely work with someone as organized and conscientious as he is! He took the time to check out the event space prior to my being there, which is way beyond what anyone could expect. Joshua's team was on time and prepared for the event. They prepared food on the spot and the guests loved that! All of the food was devoured, as it was delicious. The guests had good comments and enjoyed the fact that his recipes were varied and surprising, as they were not the norm or expected, in some instances. They loved everything and I was very happy with the experience. We will definitely use Joshua Mason of Palate Catering the next time that we are in the area!

Chef Josh was amazing. We had a formal Scottish wedding and he customized an entire menu for us. All of our guests were so impressed with the quality of the food. I would highly recommend his catering to anyone for any event. My husband and I have such high praises for everything he has done for us. Thank you, Chef Josh!!

We had an absolutely perfect and pleasant time working with Chef Arturo and his wife, Martha. We are located in the South Bay, CA and they're located in Northern California in Sacramento. First of all, we had a 400 person wedding. From their initial reach out to last interaction we never ran into an issue. We were invited into their home for a tasting and they value getting to know who they're going to serve before the event. I appreciate as an event coordinator that they require they visit the facilities before the event as well so that everyone is on the same page. The most compliments we received about our wedding was about the food. It's not easy preparing quality food for this amount of people, and every single person was satisfied with the appetizers and buffet style dinner that was served. They worked within our payment plan suggestions, kept in contact over the months leading up to the wedding, worked well with our wedding coordinator, and easy pulled this event off without expressing any type of stress towards us (the bride and groom). If we ever have a larger event that needs catering again, we will be using our new friends, Arturo and Martha.

Arturo and his staff catered my son's Bar Mitzvah celebration at our home and we were thoroughly pleased with everything they did. The food was wonderful, their staff very professional and thorough and they managed everything from set-up to clean-up. Arturo and his wife Martha were lovely to work with and we will happily hire them for all future events!

Boris was AWESOME! We didn't necessarily have an event or catering, we were just beginners who wanted to get a good foundation for learning how to cook. Boris was extremely enthusiastic and answered all of our questions. He taught us numerous knife and cooking skills that we can use moving forward. Ingredients weren't overly complicated. He made multiple dishes for us out of a single chicken. The food turned out AMAZING! I highly recommend Boris for any of your cooking or catering needs. He is very professional and a true expert.

Global Gourmet provided catering for our company Holiday luncheon. Boris and his staff came early to setup and made sure that presentation was great. The food was delicious and replenished timely. They also cleaned up after. Pricing for the whole event was really reasonable, and Boris really works with you to provide a catering menu to fit your budget. We'll be keeping them in mind for the next event.

I first got the impression that Christopher was on top of his game when he stopped by with the service contract rather than just emailing it to me. He was early for the gig, was responsible for mixing drinks for about 70 guests and keeping the wine and beer stations up and running. He did an excellent job, is very personable, and left the bar area spotless. I would definitely use his services again and recommend to friends.

I don't even know where to start! Nick is absolutely AMAZING!!! My husband and I had originally met up with him to talk wedding cake. But then he had stated him and his hubbie had gotten married at the same location where my wedding was located as well (The Vacaville Opera House). He went to tell us how he catered his own wedding and asked if we would be interested in that. After tasting his DELICIOUS white cake with strawberry cream cheese filling (which we went for with our cake) we knew we had to have a tasting. A few weeks later, my father and I had a catering taste test and fell in LOVE! Everything was delicious and full of flavor! We went with tri-tip, veggie pasta, rice and veggies. Since that day he has been there for me none stop. Attending meetings with me, answering any questions I had, and would even call me to calm me down if I has having a bride melt down. Hes passionate in what he does and he does a damn good job too. Shoot, he even came to my rescue the day of my wedding when a few things were missing! He made sure I didn't have a thing to worry about on my big day. I wish I could give him more stars on this rating because he deserves them! I will definitely be going back to Nick if I ever need any kind of dessert or event catering done. Thank you for everything darling!

I hired Nicholas to cater a dinner for my company. He provided a bartender and his servers passed appetizers during cocktail hour. Then they served a delicious sit down dinner for 27 people. (Tri-tip, Roasted Chicken, Apple Spiced Pork Tenderloin, or Rustic Vegetable Pasta) In addition to the fabulous entrees, Nicholas was very flexible and worked around those with special dietary needs. The food was upscale and plentiful, and the staff was professional yet friendly. They served an assortment of decadent desserts, which were out of this world! People raved about the food, and Nicholas and his staff thoroughly cleaned everything up afterwards so we didn't have to do anything but relax and enjoy ourselves. All at a very reasonable price. Nicholas and his staff will be our new "go to" caterer!

We hired Famous Creations to cater our wedding and they did an amazing job. The food was not as good as I remembered the tasting, but it was cooked on a larger scale and was buffet style, so that is understandable. However, the best part about their services was the hired help. We hired a head server, Jill and two food servers. Jill was basically our wedding planner and did an amazing job making the wedding run smoothly.Also, our wedding cake, made by Famous Creations was to die for! Super moist, beautifully presented and was gone almost instantly. Overall, I highly recommend Famous Creations for their catering services, they made my wedding day run without any problems.

We hired 2TipsyChicks to bartend for our annual Denim & Diamonds fundraiser. We have always used volunteers to staff our bar service before and were hesitant to pay and hire it out. After a conversation with Wendi I was convinced that we should do it. That was one of the best decisions of the event. We got great menu ideas and ways we could increase our service and raise more money. They were full of creativity, energy, and went over the top to serve us. All of our guests loved 2TipsyChicks! They helped us profit more than we ever had before. I will not hesitate to use them next time and would recommend them without reservation. Thank you Wendi!

Mimi and her staff were amazing; they by far exceeded my expectations. My safari baby shower was more than I ever hoped for because Mimi took the time to find out what was important to me and made it happen. Mimi was responsible for everything from set up, decorations, catering, games and cleanup. She and her very professional staff came into my home 4 hours prior to the party and transformed our living and dining room into a real safari jungle! She even hand made the party favor bags and they were so adorable. My guests were so amazed and had an amazing time. I can't wait to hire Mimi again soon!!! I must comment also on her staff: I felt like they were part of our family. They all brought the personal touch and were here at our service. The warmth and personality of her staff are beyond description.

We hired Mimi to cater out daughter's Bat Mitzvah. But what Mimi did was so above and beyond just catering. Mimi's food and presentation of food was delicious and beautiful. But in addition, she turned the party space into a gorgeously decorated space beyond the dreams of our daughter. Mimi was determined to make it the most magical event for our daughter and listened very carefully to all our daughter's ideas. We really couldn't believe Mimi's magic! She has the highest work ethic and delivers more than 100%! Great team of people backing her up as well. It was the best day of our daughter's life. Thank you mimi!

Mimi catered our business networking holiday event. We wanted to have a variety of artisan appetizers, and Mimi delivered even more than expected. The food was delicious and the presentations of each appetizer made everyone say, "those look good" and "oh, I want to try one of these." Mimi and her staff were wonderful people. They were cheerful, helped open bottles of Champagne, extra touches, and they cleaned up the kitchen when they were done. We absolutely recommend them.

I've used DidiCoco'a for all my catering needs from an intimate gathering of 6, to my Mother's 70th birthday party for over 100 guest. What I appreciate the most is her attention to detail, from her fabulous food( chicken wings and pralines to die for) to her professional service. You the customer envision it she delivers with style and elegance. I've confidently referred DidiCoco'a to friends and coworkers who have voiced the same sentiments. The prices are competitive, however you get what you pay for, which is fresh top quality ingredients. DidiCoco'a is my go to catering service!!

I've never hired a caterer before and was nervous about going through Thumbtack. After we connected by phone about my small party, Nancy was very creative in preparing lovely dishes for family and friends with diverse dietary needs and tastes. Our guests raved about her vegan eggplant with squash - even my very nonvegan brother-in-law! Her beautiful salad was delicious, as were the specially prepared almonds and pistachios. My husband loved the shrimp. The biggest hit was the decadent chocolate cake. Generous portions too. Everyone went home with a little more of their favorites.
