Debbie was a delight to work with and very professional. We hired her to provide appetizers for a cocktail party. She had an extensive menu of options to choose from. She arrived on time and met all her commitments. The food was delicious, abundant and made from quality ingredients. It was beautifully served with care and creativity. Her drop off included an hour of setup. She left my kitchen spotless. My guests and I were very impressed. Debbie has my highest recommendation.

We hosted a cocktail party with finger foods--the food was better than any restaurant in Sacramento--fabulous--our friends are still talking about just how good it was. The staff were friendly and very professional. And my kitchen was spotless when they left. I will use them every chance I get!!!!!!

My wife and I hired Boris to cater our wedding at American River Resorts in Coloma, CA. We weren't planning to hire anyone as we had friends from culinary school that were going to do the job for us very cheaply, but that fell through and we had to go through a rush to hire someone and explain our unique and different menu (sweet potato bar, vegan chili, gluten free corn bread, special holiday sangria, desert bar, etc) on a somewhat limited budget with limited time. Boris was easy to work with and provided helpful solutions and was very amenable to changes but also insightful in his rebuttal when some ideas weren't feasible or could be done better given our circumstances. The day of the family was a few minutes late because of traffic on a small mountain road (a circumstance not within his or my control, lol), but they got setup quickly and had food out sooner than expected. The meal was absolutely delicious and everyone raved about both the meat based and the meatless chilis as well as the beautiful purple potatoes. SUCH GOOD FLAVOR!!!! The only complaint my wife had was that because they were late getting in, and some confusion, the sangria we asked them to make and place on the tables didn't get placed on the tables until about 30m in to the cocktail hour. Our bridesmaids had to make sure the sangria got moved from the kitchen to the dining hall. However, that's a minor issue, and overall because of the amazing flavor, quantity of food (and leftovers for a week, mmmmm), quality of production, and the efficiency of the whole team (which is a whole family operation) - we were highly satisfied with Global Gourmet. My suggestion to anyone is to be as clear and concise as possible with your directions and designate someone who is NOT the bride on the day of to do any of the logistics so that any of those minor issues won't be a problem. HIRE BORIS!

Excellent caterer, made our party fabulous. All of our guests commented on how good the barbecue was and how the potato salad rocked. Willing to do what it takes to get the job done right, polite, professional and accommodating, Dave and crew can be counted upon to do a superb job at a surprisingly affordable price.

Polkadot Dinners is our favorite caterer. Rachel is one of the most professional caterers I know in the area. Her food is absolutely amazing and her presentation of her display of food just ties in with the theme of her menu which is a added plus. Definitely within anyone budget she can make it happen. Highly recommended.

I hired Mimi for my 40th birthday party and could not be more pleased with the result. We were planning a party for 100 guests (not an easy task to wow that many people) and Mimi knocked it out of the park! I shared my Pinterest board with her and what colors I had envisioned and Mimi designed a party that amazed everyone including people passing by. You could see the decorations from the street - that's how much it came to life. Mimi made my "mad" party of going down the rabbit hole a reality. She delivered on her promise of throwing me a one-of-a kind and memorable event. It was the perfect way to celebrate this milestone. I shared my vision with her for having a Mad Hatter themed party and she brought it to life. Mimi brought ideas to the table that I hadn't even considered and it was amazing. From the minute you walked in, guests were "wow'd" (which is what Mimi told me would happen) and throughout the venue details were incorporated into the decor and food. It was exactly what I wanted and more! Mimi was great to communicate with over email, phone and in person. When you're getting emails from her at 1am, you know she's hard at work and dedicated to throwing you an awesome party. Thank you again MIMI!!! She put her heart and soul into designing and personalizing my party. Mimi's energy, dedication and creativity shined through, producing an event I will cherish forever.

It was my husband's 50th bday and I wanted it to be extra special. I found Didi online and to be honest I was a little bit anxious because it was my first time to cater and for such a special event. I had a lot of questions but Didi was very patient and professional. She was quick to respond and I felt she treated me fairly. The FOOD - fabulous! The tri-tip and the smoked ribs were a smash hit! Our guests kept coming back for more! So I made a note to myself to double these portions next time! Days after the party my guests still were talking about how they loved those 'tips and ribs. DELIVERY AND PRESENTATION- spot on! On time, very professional and courteous staff. PRICE- reasonable! I ordered for 70 guests and it didn't feel like it broke the bank. Happy husband, happy guests - PRICELESS!

Laurel helped me plan an amazing 30th Birthday Brunch. She was thoughtful with the menu and the food was fresh and seasonal, just as we discussed. There were roughly ~20 in attendance and her team made me feel like a guest at my own party. Will definitely use her again.

I used Kincy Catering for my birthday party. I requested food for 60 people. I contacted Kincy Catering two days prior to the party and he delivered! Kincy Catering provided lovely quality food for a great price! Mr. Kincy gives attention to detail so he provided exactly what I asked without complaint. He was able to provide delicious food in large quantities. I will refer everyone I know, and definitely use this service again!

Wow! We choose Ring of Fire to cater our wedding based on basically two criteria… quality and price. The former being the most important… but accommodating 150+ people played heavily into our decision as well. Fortunately my Mother-in-Law knows food, is a chef herself, and recommended we check them out. From the start it was a very positive experience. Early on, Collin, part owner, took time to meet with us on a Sunday over coffee to discuss our vision. After a short time we landed on a menu both my bride and I were excited about and that stuck to our budget. He even followed us up to the venue site to scope out the logistics. Bonus! Their whole mobile operation is run out of an old Army transport rig. Painted black of course with a cargo container on the back housing the kitchen and wood fired pizza oven! It is quite a presence in itself… they rolled up, deployed their own buffet line, party string lights, and even a cornhole set. We had a variety of passed pizza hors d'oeuvres starting during cocktail hour, continued during dinner service, and followed into the evening. But the main event was dinner! Pulled pork sliders, delicious juicy grilled chicken, German potato salad, a beautifully simple arugula salad, killer house-made pickles, and even chips and salsa! Even my bride couldn’t resist cleaning her plate… and you know how they always ‘forget’ to eat on their big day. I can’t tell you how many people raved about the food as we made our customary way around the tables after dinner. We were so happy and super impressed! We knew it was going to be good… but hot damn! It was excellent!

A successful client appreciation party thanks to Michelle. She took all of the stress of the party off of my hands...prepared the food, set up, served, bartended, cleaned up. I was able to focus on my guests and enjoy the party. Thanks Michelle! I look forward to seeing you again at next year's party.

Wonderful food! Paired perfectly with our wines for a recent wine club event. Carlo and Theo are the best to work with and we will be using them for wine and food events often. Highly recommend Wicked Pig for all your catering needs!

It is my pleasure to offer a review of Sylvia's catering, culinary expertise and work ethic. I have enjoyed years of her cooking as she and I were coworkers. In addtion she has catered a couple parties for our family. Sylvia is classically trained so she may provide any food item or method requested. She is also of course very proficient in kitchen safety, equipment, hygiene, prep, timing and temperature requirements. Now for food! Sylvia has a special sense for pairing and encorporating big flavors and complimentary textures. Whether is is fried chicken and mashed potatoes you are after or exotic flavors of the Far East and Carribean Islands, she can provide. Personally I prefer the latter and the spices and flavors Sylvia creates are completely delicious. Some examples include her Chana Alu (curry chick pea and potato), chilie spiced salsas and chutneys, and tangy tomato marinaras. Our family perferes the Caribbean flavors and a recent menu included jerk spiced chicken (and tofu), coconut prawn, chana alu, spicy mango chutney, yougart/ dill chutney, green salad and cilantro/ lime rice. Sylvia graces any atmoshere with exuberance, style, positivity and professionalism. Highly recommened!

I couldn't have asked for a better experience having Chrysalis Catering working my son's graduation party. Tameeka had great communication skills. She always kept in contact with me before and during the event. She was professional and attentive to the needs of the party and made sure the meal was prepared on time. My guests were also impressed with Tameeka and asked for her card to cater their future events. This was the first time I used this app and my wife and I were pleasantly surprised. Chrysalis Catering is top notch.

I can smell Magpie Productions chicken wings right now! MMMM good! And those roasted garlic crab and shrimp scampi dishes are the BEST! I can’t forget her amazing pasta dishes they are always filled with the right ingredients. And, what I appreciate most about Magpie Productions is her variety of dishes that range from Southern to gourmet. I would highly recommend Magpie Productions catering to anyone who is looking for tasty food that will delight the palate. And by the way, give her a party theme and she’s run with it! Bon appetite Stephanie T.
