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!!!!!!

Taste of the Senses does an OUTSTANDING job as a caterer. I hired them for my husband's 60th birthday party for 150 guests and was very pleased with the quality of the food as well as the presentation. Positive comments from the guests. Not only is the food good - Arturo is a very engaging chef! I highly recommend Taste of the Senses.

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!

We hired Lindsey to bartend for our 40th birthday party. The party was 70's theme and Lindsey did a great job creating some signature cocktails and shots and poured cocktails that were popular in the 1970's. She even came in costume. She was on time, professional and kept the bar clean and organized all night.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

Retirement party with 75-100 guests in attendance. The food was outstanding, got lots of compliments, and it was very nice to have his staff there to help out. They left our kitchen spotless! Jim was very easy to work with, and more than accommodating in our budget and food selection. Highly recommend!!!

If you want the most amazing experience and exceptionally delicious Mexican food hire Grace Honesto for you next party. We had about 75 plus people and no one was disappointed. From the decorations to the food and of course Grace and her granddaughter it was the best catering ever!!! Thank you for all the love you put into our special day!

I had a very unique event that Pheasant Wood Catering provided food and beverage for. It was a large party and Chef Timothy was very flexible and accommodating for the special food and alcohol order that my event needed. He was well-informed, involved, and patient throughout the whole process. Overall he was easy to work with and really went out of his way to make the event a success. We certainly didn't make it easy on him, but the services provided were amazing!

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.

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!
