Jose is a phenomenal chef and caterer. He's the first person I got to for any of my event needs. He catered my birthday surprise party and my wife's birthday party. Jose is incredibly resourceful, full of ideas and always finds a way to go above and beyond. Food is always great, very competitive on pricing and always very flexible and service oriented for your needs. He's definitely my go to guy for any culinary needs I have.

Oh my. There are not enough stars for how perfect this private chef dinner was. From the first contact chef Boris and Carolina were so very attentive and lightening fast responders. Carolina is the most organized and sets your mind at ease that no detail will be forgotten or left out. I never worried they would execute our requests to perfection. She's is calming and a can do yes person. Pricing is beyond fair. The food was beautiful. The presentation was contemporary and current. The taste was spot on and no one left a bite on a plate. 10 star flavors and service. Left the place spotless. I have not one thing I would edit. It is so nice knowing before the event even begins you are in good hands. The attention Carolina gives sets all your worries free so chef Boris can come in and just hit it out of the park while you and guests sip cocktails.

enjoyed a nice Sunday Private Culinary experience with Chef Mumsey and her team! The dinner was absolutely exquisite and uniquely made. One of the sides was corn on the cob grilled with a special season, I honestly didn’t expect to enjoy it, however I was blown away at the taste!! The meal prep was created in a timely and organized fashion and I even assisted! If you’re looking for an eloquent fine homemade dining experience contact Chef Mumsey! You will not be disappointed yet amazed and delighted!!!

I hired Sierra Madre Catering for my husband's 40th birthday party held at my home. The set up process was so easy, they were so accommodating with the menu I wanted (even though it included fried foods and philly cheese steak sandwiches which are hard to make on-site). The moment they got to my house, Tonya and her chefs were so professional, speedy, on top of it all! They made my night so much easier and fun and I finally got to enjoy my own party for once! They left my house very neat like my kitchen was never used! They picked up after my guests throughout the night. My favorites were inside-out Philly cheese steak, pulled pork sliders, mac & cheese, potstickers and garlic fries. Thank you and looking forward to seeing you again!

Jordan is an excellent chef and caterer. He produces food that is way beyond the standard catering services. If you want cookie cutter catering go with someone else. If you want really great food at a great price stop on by or use his catering.

I hired Rich for a small event at my house yesterday. Before the party, Rich was always answering my phone calls and texts with any question or concerns I had. The day of the party he did an EXCELLENT job bartending and walking around to make sure everyones glasses we full! He even went to the extent to help entertain my 2 year old during dinner time and helped the chef move empty dishes! He was truly amazing and a great price and i will definitely use him again!

Michelle from One HOT Dish Catering was hired as a 'one time' personal chef at my home. I requested that Michelle provide me and my guest with a fine dining experience with five star restaurant service. She didn't disappoint. Michelle transformed of portion of my home into an elegant dining corner and prepared a full course meal with the culinary expertise reminiscent of Flemings. If you weren't in awe of the table setting and china flatware then you were marveled by her attentive service and the exquisite manner in which explained each dish. We felt like royalty. We can't wait to do it again!

I am beyond grateful to Thumbtack for connecting me to Chef Keith Prante and his team at Hautè Productions Events and Catering to cater my mom's 80th birthday celebration. They are absolutely A-MAZING! Chef Prante was one of two chefs who responded to my request via Thumbtack, and I also received a personal referral. Neither of the other caterers offered ANYWHERE NEAR the quality, selections, variety and value that Hautè offered at my price point. We had our tasting today, and it absolutely sealed the deal! Everything was delicious and the presentation was outstanding. I highly recommend Hautè Productions to any potential customer who appreciates excellence, accommodation and genuine customer service.

Chantel & Bella's is a great company that strives on personal service and quality desserts! I have ordered desserts for a few different events, including a baby shower, gender reveal party, and a company meeting. They have gone above and beyond by providing delicious cupcakes, cookies, and cake pops with a unique design catered to the theme of the event. All of the menu items have been very flavorful and beautifully designed! I must say that my favorite so far has been the rose cookies! They are extremely beautiful and so soft…I could eat them every day! Needless to say, I will be continuing to use Chantel & Bella as my dessert provider!

We had the most wonderful experience this summer working Valerie. There are not enough adjectives to describe how delicious, innovative, healthy, and diverse her menu is. Our family hired Valerie for our summer in Laguna Beach. Each week she prepared six unique delicious, fresh, nutritious mouth watering dishes. As New Yorkers we are often hard to please and having Valerie as a chef made us feel as we were dining at our favorite restaurants in New York City. She and I would select the dishes for the week, they would range from Mediterranean to Spanish to French to Chinese to Japanese, there wasn't a cuisine Valerie couldn't cook and each was equally delicious. Also, the quantity and ingredients Valerie used allowed us to devour each meal and not gain an ounce. She was open, easy to talk to, enjoyed collaborating on menu options, and she is an absolute delight to be around. She was professional, neat, upbeat, insightful, and a gem. It truly made our summer and we cannot wait to return to Laguna Beach and work with her next summer.

Divoon Dining was able to produce a delicious Mac and Cheese for a simple dinner and then a five course gourmet feast at another time, all with smooth and unobtrusive preparation and good humor, which contributed to the whole excellent dining experience. We look forward to doing it again.

Carolyn is so easy to work with. Planning parties, family gatherings, and/or holiday festivities can be very stressful, and that’s when you need someone like Carolyn to help you. I’ve had the pleasure of working with her for many parties and her catering have not disappointed me yet. The only reason I didn’t rank her perfect is because I’ve yet tasted all of her specialities. Best of luck Chef LaTay. Valerie

Jory came to our home to prepare a dinner for 10 guests. Our house staff was delighted by his ability to keep the kitchen clean while preparing for service. Since I run a food service company myself, this alone is laudable and the sign of a true chef. He prepared hor d'oeuvres, appetizers, three entreés, and served the crepe cake we brought in from Lady M Bakery. Afterwards, he offered coffee service while service wound down. The quality of the food was superb on all counts, and many of our guests asked for seconds and still left their plates empty. Mediterranean dishes of fennel branzino, victorian lamb, and gardenherbed lemon chicken were the highlights of the night. During service, our guests were shocked to see the double doors be drawn open and to find a spotless kitchen in between each course. Our guests are very well-to-do in the fashion industry. Jory is young and very well rounded personally—service was socially and culinarily seamless. He was even welcoming when our guests pillaged the leftovers in the kitchen throughout the night. My wife and I will book him to cook parties in the future and you should too.

Hired The Chef to cook for an anniversary for me and my wife. He came and perform his job excellent and we had a great time learning how to prepare meals. For our anniversary she wanted to stay home cook dinner with the family and I couldn’t of asked for a better chef to help me. We incorporated my kids and they wanted pizza so pizza is what we did. Can’t wait for our next encounter and opportunity to work together.
