Debbie was absolutely outstanding. We hosted a dinner party for 12 people at our home and wanted to ensure it was a special experience for all. Debbie came up with a delicious and practical menu that was both delicious and took into account various dietary restrictions. She arrived early to prepare, was flexible to our timing when things started a little late, and ensured everything was tidy/clean before she left. In terms of food, everything was fantastic, but the Chicken Marbella and the Apple Crisp were especially delicious. Our guests left asking whether Debbie could help them with their next meal. We would highly recommend her :)!
I had envisioned a very special party for 56 guests and wanted everything perfect. I interviewed 3 different companies with a special plan in mind. Chef Paul Mandalou was the only one, of the top ten rated caterers, that was willing to work with me. I wanted my party to feed people during the entire 4 hours without putting them on a schedule. One caterer submitted a beautiful presentation but it was something that you would see at a wedding with stations of different food. All food would be put out at the same time and cocktail hour was limited to one hour max before the entrÃ©e was served. This is not what I envisioned. The other guy had a nice presentation too but, once again, I would be limited to so much time for cocktails, appetizers, entrÃ©e and dessert. This was not what I had envisioned. I also wanted to sample some of the things that I wanted on the menu and the other 2 companies said they would do so but they were not very happy about this request. Chef Paul put together some amazing things for me to try 2 weeks after I contacted him. He came to my home to do so unlike the other 2 companies where I had to go to their facility. Not only was the sampled food fabulous but he was also willing to tweek a certain appetizer to my liking. I wound up getting 12 appetizers, a fabulous entrÃ©e with grilled vegetables and 3 desserts. Chef Paul is Greek so he made me 2 Greek dishes that were so good I will have to keep him on retainer just so I can get more. It is now 2 weeks after the party and my guests are still talking about it. Everyone stayed during the 4 hour time span, which is a very good sign that things are good, and the party continued into the wee hours. Everyone is still raving about the food and how personable Chef Paul was and his staff. I had 2 waiters and a Mixologist that he recommended and they would all hard working, friendly, on time and great with the clean up. Chef Paul may not have a pretty presentation like other companies but his food and service far exceed any other caterer I have used in the past. His presentation of everything is beautiful and he gives a 100 percent. He was present the whole time and did not make a lot of things in advance, like a lot of companies do, so everything was fresh and made in my home. My guests are telling me that this was the best party they have ever been to. If it were not for Chef Paul, I doubt that people would be saying this. People are telling me it was the party of the year. Would I hire Chef Paul again? Yes, without a doubt. He will be my special chef for life and I cannot wait to throw another party that he will cater. If you do not hire him, you are a fool ten fold. If you want pretty presentations and mediocre food, then don't hire him. If you want a party where the caterer tells you how it will work, then don't hire him. If you want fabulous food that people will rave about with gorgeous presentations, fabulous staff and a willingness to work with you, then Chef Paul is your man. I know I will never hire anyone else. Together we pulled off the best party I have ever thrown and I know this would never have happened if I had not hired him. If you want to call me and speak to me in person regarding a recommendation, I am more than willing to do so. Chef Paul has my permission to give out my home number upon request. Many thanks again to Chef Paul and his wonderful staff for making my special event spectacular.
We hired Joshua for our wedding of 125 people in Sonoma, CA. Ours was an inter-faith wedding and we wanted the food to reflect the same as well. We had two caterers for our wedding. Joshua was the point person running the show and provided refreshments during and after our ceremony, hors doeuvres, cocktail hour beverages, 3 main courses and desserts (including wedding cake, macaroons, etc.). We had a separate ethnic food section where the food was dropped off by the second caterer and was served by Joshua and his crew. We are based in NY and communicated with Joshua long distance. We liked the reviews on thumbtack and met him in person during visits to the bay area. We found him very easy to work with and he communicated clearly, patiently answering all of our questions about anything and everything. We were not disappointed! Joshua met us the weekend before our wedding at the venue and we did a thorough walk through of everything and we discussed the nuts and bolts (down to the specific place settings, table cloths, water pitchers, etc.). He went out of his way to get the beers we wanted as well and met all of our guests' needs in terms of food restrictions etc. Our guests had a beautiful experience and everything went according to the plan with no surprises. We went into the event with a strong day-of coordinator and very clear timelines; we made sure Joshua and his team were aware of our schedule well-beforehand and we maintained close communications leading up to and throughout the event. There was enough food and wine for everyone. His staff was super polite and did a great job of making sure guests were taken care of on our wedding day. Many of our guests commented on how remarkable the food was with some of the them saying its the best food Ive had till date! :-) So thank you to Chef Joshua for making our wedding day seamless. We would totally recommend Joshua & Palate Catering for your celebration. D&L
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.
Boris did an excellent job teaching and preparing 2 appetizers, an entree, vegetable dish and a side dish for our adult children. He has a great personality, good entertainer and very professional. He is very accommodating and wanted to meet all our expectations for the evening. Our meal was better then many meals we would get a nice restruants. I will hire him again for any catering or parties we have in the future.
I hired Lindsey to cater my holiday party for about 35 people. I really can't say enough positive things about her and the experience of working with her. She collaborated in advance on fantastic menu and wine pairing ideas (we went with an all Spanish tapas theme), took care of all the serving dish rentals and picked out really cool platters, etc., came to my house to set up all the food and then came back to clean it all up at the end of the party (I honestly didn't even know she had cleaned it all up and she was gone and the kitchen was spotless). And the food was absolutely DELICIOUS. My guests were raving and they ate every bite. It was the perfect amount of food. I was completely at leisure before the party because she really took care of everything. HIRE HER.
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!
We wanted something different for our garden party event and we got it!! It started quite impressively when their catering truck pulled up... The staff was attentive and efficient throughout our event. The food was fabulous. The thin crust pizzas were a hit! Staff did a great job keeping our beverage area well stocked and iced. I asked them to do this last minute and they were happy to help. Gabe always returned my calls and made our event stress free and fun! Great music too!!
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!!!
Grace's food is amazing! She is one of the best caterers we've ever used here at the CTA; the food is hot and delicious, she's on-time and prepared, and she goes above and beyond the call of duty!
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!
Very helpful and understanding. Willing to work within a budget. She was a lifesaver, when my caterer for my daughter's party fell short do to an issue. Julie was willing and ready to step in and make my party a food success. I will be using her again for future events.
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.
Louie helped me at our Lyon Real Estate Christmas Party. He did an outstanding job with the event. Very professional and hard working. I would use him again in the future.
