Let me start by saying that we were very skeptical to try out a new catering service, as our family had used the same caterer for 10 years. Baja Tacos food was delicious at the tasting they provided. The meat quality and taste was exquisite ..... Still we were nervous of the unknown. Service is very important to our family. The owner did seem a little overwhelmed and maybe not too irganized, as far as not remembering the amount he originally quouted or the amount of deposit he gave. He was proffesional and eager to please his customer!.. We had a party of 75 guest. We were extremely content with their service, attitude and food. On behalf of our family and 75 guests, we recommend Baja Tacos for your next event.

We had about 25 people for a bachelorette pre-party at an apartment complex clubhouse. Jesus and helpers (family) brought all the pre-determined and agreed upon foods in easy to present/serve containers. They were probably in and out in ten minutes. Everything from begining to end of working with Jesus was as planned. There was plenty of food and it was yummy - listen to any recommendations he may have! I'd definitely use Baja's Tacos again as it was really easy from beginning to end.

My wife and I live very busy lives with demanding work schedules. When we are not working we love to spend time with our family and entertain. I am a bit of a foodie as is my wife, so when we entertain the meals must be perfect. I am very impressed with Lilian's ability to deliver the highest quality cuisine in a variety of nationalities. She has prepared French, Moroccan, Thai, Asian fusion, Mexican fusion, and Mediterranean to name a few. She has served us at an intimate table of four to catering fundraisers for over 300 people. In addition to the fabulous food, Lilian has a friendly inviting personality and always has a smile on her face. If you hire Lilian as your chef, you will not be disappointing!

Lilian truly helped to make my Christmas party an outstanding one. From the first time we corresponded, she was very timely and organized with making arrangements and worked hard to ensure I was happy with the final details. The day of my event, Lilian was extremely professional, congenial, and organized. The food was delicious and there was a wide variety of options for everyone. My guests commented many times on how good the catering was and how friendly Lilian was. If I ever have another event requiring catering, I would definitely book her again. 5 stars for sure!!

I would highly recommend Lilian for your catering needs! She catered our business cocktail party for approximately 25 people in our home supplying tray-passed hors d'oeuvres. She possesses a vivacious personality and is extremely fun to work with! Her culinary skills are excellent...the food was fantastic! (My personal favorite was the Sicilian Swordfish Skewers.) She will be the first person I call when I need a caterer again!!

All Aspects catering where do I begin, 1st off they were amazing !! I was under a lot of stress trying to find a food cater living in Northern California and planing a wedding in Southern California. I then came across Thumbtacks, which was a life savor. I am so glad I found you guys. The all aspect catering crew were awesome, everyone was so nice,polite, and helpful. I felt bad for always calling and double checking my order and changing things, and not once did I hear frustration in there voices. I was mainly in contact with Simon who was so gracious, and patient. Thank you Simon for your patients and your professionalism, when really underneath it all I was under a lot of stress planning this thing and trying to stay on track with all my vendors. When I went to try the food I was a little late and they were still so welcoming. They wanted to ensure the people I brought had enough food and even bagged all the extras for us. The day of my wedding the crew was on point serving my guest, and flowed naturally. At the wedding the cook had specially prepared our plates, and even severed us a complementary fruit and veggie tray as we were taking pictures. This was so thoughtful for him to walk all the way over to serve us. He said " I got to take care of the queen and king." I never forgot that, he made us laugh and feel honored. He was even jamming out to the music as he worked. He had high spirits as well as the crew. The food tasted great, it was fresh, hot, and reasonably priced. They picked up everything, informed me when they were leaving, wished us the best and gave us hugs. Thank you all aspect catering for everything you guys rock. I would recommend and use them again for other events. - Marissa Partida/Guzman

Highly recommend if you are looking for catering for any sized group!

I have nothing but great things to say about the service, quality, and overall delivery of Best Mobile Chef. From beginning to end, Shawna was very attentive and professional. As a bride, I can honestly say that planning a wedding is one of the most stressful experiences in your life; however, Shawna did an amazing job at making sure I was not stressed or worried when it came to the catering, bartending, and cake. She made sure that each and every need was met, and she even offered her assistance with cutting our cake even though that was out of her services. We sat down and went over every detail, and Shawna made sure to keep in touch throughout the way to maintain things and to make sure that we were on track with everything. Finally on the day of, the food and setup was more than what was expected. Our family and friends spoke so highly of the food and service. Shawna and her team was absolutely phenomenal! My husband and I would definitely book Shawna and her team again for a large dinner, and even desserts. We are both forever thankful and grateful!

I'm the West Coast Manager of the Warrior Support Team, an outreach program of MarineParents.com. We serve dinner to the Wounded Warrior Batallion at the Naval Medical Center, San Diego every Thursday. Because this is a military base, caterers are sometimes reluctant to follow the procedures necessary to get through the security gate and deliver the food. June and Gary not only were willing to deliver the food, but did so on time, which is critical for us. The food itself was excellently prepared and flavorful. I look forward to working with June Sper Catering on a regular basis.

I hired June Sper catering for a large 4th of July party and I couldn't be happier! Her professionalism was evident by her feedback on my choices of menu items. She also helped me by figuring out a few sides and items for the younger guests. Her delivery on the afternoon of the party was prompt and her setup and instructions for serving and storing the food were much appreciated. My guests loved the food and I ordered enough that guests were able to take as much as they wanted home afterwards. I will definitely use this company again in the future! Thank you June!!

Prime Cuts Catering. This place was the best idea I ever had for party I’ve done a lot of parties for my daughter over the past 16 years and usually we cook but because she was having a sweet 16 without we have somebody else come in and cook let me tell you this is the best idea I’ve ever ever ever had Mr. Ron and his wife came in and showed Out!!! Menu for our daughter‘s sweet 16 party was chili cheeseburgers fries hot dogs and low and behold he threw it onion rings which had to of been the best ever... I feel really honored he was able to do our party. I also let him know that I had a few people that were vegans, and would need a vegan dish. Now I’m a meat and potatoes kind of girl, but I think if I had to become a vegan I could live off of his portobello stroganoff yes I said portobello stroganoff it was the business it was so flavorful.

My wedding that we hired Prime Cuts Catering for isn't until June of 2018, but our experience this far has been fabulous! The tasting that Ron offers is AMAZING. The food is delicious, and he is very easy going. We brought my parents for the tasting and my dad has already booked him for the large Christmas party his business has every year! I had several catering quotes and nobody touched this rate. Can't wait to see the finished product!

I was searching online and I found a website called thumbtack so I put my name and what kind of catering I need and about the price and how many people that I needed this for, in about 30 minutes I started getting different quotes and different estimates for exactly what I was looking for, the first person to respond to me was Avian he called me and we discussed what I needed and gave me a couple different quotes eventually he ended up working with me and the price that I needed I thought for sure it was a home run and it turned out to be an absolute success the food was amazing and there was plenty of it he worked with whatever we needed him to work with with no complaints he was very professional and he was very understanding and our families time of grieving if I had to hire him again I would do it in an instant without thinking twice and I would recommend him to any of my friends and family but I can't really say that now because my whole family did eat from him and they loved it they raved about it. The taco cart was amazing everything was so fresh I'm actually craving some of the adobada he made... 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 when the party was done he left us all the leftovers thank God cuz the next day after the party we didn't want to cook so we ended up making rolled tacos out of the meat that he left us and again it was still absolutely delicious I would like to say thank you again to Avian and his family for catering our party our family will have you back anytime thank you again so much

By far the best idea and decision for a teen birthday party ever!! He brought them aprons, taught them about different kinds of knives and knife care, workspace and hand cleanliness, how to get the best deal at the grocery stores, how to cut up a chicken, how to filet fish, proper seasonings, taste testing, how to multitask in the kitchen to time things to hit the table at the same time and how to prepare dishes for complete meals. He was patient, thorough and totally entertaining to the teens. They were all so proud of their meal and all talked about how cool this party was. After the food was set on the table, he gave a description of each item being served, then he cleaned up the kitchen and exited while we sat down to dinner. He was absolutely amazing. He'd never done a birthday party because he usually teaches couples and does catering events but I'd highly recommend him.

Chris was very easy to talk to, which was important since this was my first catered event for our Preschool Fundraiser. He walked me through the process and his prices were great! I asked him for a tasting and he came to the school and fed several of our teachers. Everything was delicious! Our event was for 100 people and was an evening event with appetizers and wine/beer. It went perfectly. Not only was the food great and beautifully served, his staff was awesome. They totally blended in. A bonus was his bartender: she arrived a half hour early and instead of sitting around, jumped in and unloaded cars and set up with us. We can't wait to book him for next year's fundraiser!

We had a Bachellorette party this weekend and had the pleasure of having NV Personal Dining cook dinner for us. One word. AMAZING. We gave him a list of food allergies and told him to surprise us with something delicious for 2 vegetarians and 8 carnivores. He provided steak, swordfish belly and an acorn squash dish. The presentation was beautiful and the flavor was out of this world. Needless to say, we were impressed and spoiled rotten. We look forward to hiring NV Personal Dining every time we are in SD. If you are having a group event I highly recommend having NV Personal Dinning cater for you. You won't want to go out to a restaurant after having this experience.

Our plans to have our wedding meal prepared by our favorite restaurant fell thru 3 weeks before our wedding. I knew Christine Mcmaster as an excellent cook and had been to 2 private dinners catered by her. Quite anxious, I called her and she put me at ease with her assurances and suggestions to take my time and figure out what we would really like. Great advice! We chose Mediterranean food. Together with Chris we quickly settled on a menu. There were so many details but she handled it all from overseeing the table setting, shopping, deliveries and arranging table display. It was amazing I actually could relax. The meal was sumptuous elegantly prepared and plated all by Chris and her kitchen staff. Our dinner menu was: A simple greek salad, hummus, tzatziki, baba ganoush, roasted vegetables, flat bread Then Shawarma lamb, roasted chickens, and feta rice w/ pistachios. There were 35 people at the wedding meal and all the courses were on time and beautifully plated. The kitchen was quiet and when I went in everyone was smiling and extremely busy. Chris ran the kitchen in a quiet organized way that was contagious to all who worked there. Truly an amazing woman. Her sense of elegance shined thru both in the delicious food and its presentation. My husband and I will have lasting memories of Christine and how she stepped in and played an integral part in helping create our dream wedding. I highly recommend you have her cater any function. All you have to do is relax and enjoy it.

Christine McMaster is a hidden gem of the culinary and catering world! She was the caterer last year for a wedding I attended and I was most impressed. She completely handled an amazing dinner for 21 people with delectable Indian and Middle Eastern Food; taking care of the shopping, the food preparation, the service and cleaning up of the food and leftovers. I was so impressed that I asked her to cater an Indian Meal for 75 people! Since it was a much larger undertaking, we provided theingredients, but Chris oversaw every aspect of the preparation of a 5 course meal, and remained calm, organized and personable throughout. The food was absolutely delicious. I would absolutely recommend her for any catering needs you might have - you would be lucky to get her!

I highly recommend Chef Renee and the Luscious Bites team for all your catering needs. We recently had our Annual Corporate Sales Meeting and had multiple Sales Reps visiting California for the week. After weeks of planning and setting up a few evening events to entertain our Reps, we found out 5 days before one of the events that the original plan was no longer going to work. In a last-minute mad dash to throw together a themed dinner party we asked around for recommendations and the moment I spoke with Jessica and received the menu I knew I found the right company. Best decision we made was to hire them. Chef Renee and her team made everything so streamlined and simple on our end. We literally picked the food and they handled everything else. From set up to break down to clean up, we did NOTHING!!! Which was a nice change since we usually do EVERYTHING. Not only did they accommodate us with regards to our time sensitive needs, They also were great at helping us choose the best menu to fit our Polynesian theme. Their pricing was more than reasonable esp. for all she and her team did to provide such a great atmosphere with such great food. AND THE FOOD IS GREAT, phenomenal is even a better word to describe the choices for our dinner party. We took all the reps to the Cayman Islands one year for this meeting and can you believe I got more compliments and rave reviews about our Laguna Beach event then I did about being on an ISLAND. It is all attributed to Chef Renee's food and her team's service. All in all, the event went off without a hitch. Thanks so much again to Chef Renee and her team. You will NOT be disappointed and no need to keep searching. Just book them for your event today.... you hit the jackpot!!

I really don't think I can leave a review that quite reflects how happy I am with Luscious Bites Catering!! I organized a private housewarming party in last Friday for my boss, and from each stage of the planning phases, they were there, prepared and ready with options suitable to our budget, along with a wealth of information and suggestions. Jessica was an incredible help-- very professional, knowledgeable, and wonderfully friendly. Amazing first impression. Everyone was super responsive, really flexible, and ready for anything we threw their way. The food was beyond wonderful, and so obviously thought-out and cared-for.

We arrived at the Fishbone Kitchen where Chef Bear is the executive chef and were immediately served many nice dishes of fresh ceviche while we waited for our class. Once in the kitchen, we learned many cool techniques for knife skills and other techniques like oyster shucking and removing the skin from a salmon without using a knife! Chef Bear was informative and hospitable. The only reason I am removing a star is because the kitchen we were in was very small (he did have a larger kitchen for us but the location fell through at the last moment) and took away from the experience for some of the participants due to it being difficult to see or hear -- positioning and noise level was a culprit. But all in all it was a very cool experience at a very reasonable rate. Chef Bear did everything he could to customize the class for us according to our interests, needs and experience levels. I would recommend him.

Chef Rich catered our family Easter Brunch for years. His platters of fresh fruit and exotic cheeses looked almost too good to eat. Rich attended to carving stations as he prepared omelette's to order while keeping the family entertained by his culinary skills and witty personality. My family looks forward to the brunch every year and So do I because chef Rich makes it fun for everyone while enjoying delicious food.

I had the privilege of attending a catered affair by My Green Chef, the food was excellent in both taste and presentation. Mr. Hass was very friendly and professional I plan to use My Green Chef for an upcoming event and will be sure to post again!

Michael and his team at URBN went above and beyond to make our corporate event a success! Their Pizzas were delicious and very well received by the entire team! Plus the fact that they bake them on the spot in their oven creates an unique experience. I would highly recommend them to anyone and will certainly use them again. Thanks on behalf of the entire Fox team!

Ellena is incredible! She offers amazing food and exceptional service. She clearly loves what she does and is passionate about food and clients, offering creativity and customization. Whether looking to feed yourself or your family healthy meals or looking to host a knock-your-socks-off catered gathering - I work with her regularly for both and there is nothing she doesn't wow me with. The best Cuban sandwiches you have ever tasted for a fun Miami night theme, mashed potatoe bar for a midnight comfort food theme at a fancy holiday party - Ellena is creative, kind, and extremely talented. I would highly recommend her.

Chris catered an event at our home for roughly 40 people and everything went extremely well. He was right on schedule and had everything under control which impressed us. The food was amazing and most (if not all) of my guests commented on how much they enjoyed the food and presentation. Everything went smoothly from start to finish. Having Chris there let us actually enjoy a party at our home for once! I whole heartedly recommend Chris.
