Baja's Tacos was BEST QUALITY AND BEST SERVICE. The owner really cares about his customers and his reputation. All of my 75 guest said Baja Tacos was by far the best taco caterer they had ever had. My guest have used many local caterers in the past and I am still receiving excellent feedback on how Great the food was. I would highly recommend this company. Thank you Baja Taco.....

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!!

Everything went off like clockwork. A true professional. This was a party for 40, and Shawna made brisket, turkey, a few side salads, grilled asparagus, and lemon cupcakes. Everything was a hit. In hindsight the only thing I would have adjusted was adding additional brisket. We ran out of meat and while the count was for 40, several folks didn't show up. My husband didn't get any. With that said this should not take away from my excellent experience. Just something to think about with headcount going forward. Some people went back for seconds which added to the issue, but in my opinion not enough to make an impact, as the headcount was 40. I also think beef was more popular so something I need to manage also. The guests raved about the food and asked for her business card. Shawna and her helper took care of everything from picking up finished plates from people, to cleaning up, and placing leftovers in smaller dishes. Shawna will be my go caterer forever!

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.

Everybody loved the food. There was plenty and we even had leftovers. The caterers didn't mind all the stairs they had to take to carry their stove, tables etc. We will hire them again for sure when we are in the area.

I contacted Sage Bleu based on the reviews I saw here. Although there were other caterers with more reviews, I was looking for a talented caterer, not jaded by decades in the business, who would go the extra mile to deliver superlative food and service. The reviews I saw here painted a picture of incredible food and personalized, unobtrusive, caring service, so I called Sage Bleu. When I spoke with Lavonne, I casually mentioned a few dishes that only the most savvy food aficionado would know. She subtly let me know that she not only knew what those dishes were, but knew how to prepare them. SOLD! I had Sage Bleu cater a casual neighborhood get together as well as a white tablecloth dinner for a dozen finicky business associates. The food selections were appropriate for both crowds. The food, wine pairings and presentation were impeccable. Service began exactly at the appointed time and clean-up was to the highest white glove standard. I cannot recommend Sage Bleu highly enough!

We had Paraiso delicacies cater our wedding in Temecula in December 2014. Our experience was absolutely phenomenal. The food was amazing and I got compliments from all the guests telling me they loved the food and it was the best they have had at a wedding. From the delicious hors d'oeuvres, food and the gourmet truffles, I can't thank Joanie and get staff enough for their professional and excellent service. If you are throwing an event and need an excellent caterer, no need to look further use Joanie with Paraiso Delicacies.

Fantastic meal, way exceeded expectations and was much more affordable than other private chefs we contacted. Would highly recommend to anyone hosting a dinner!! Originally we looked at making a group dinner reservation to dine out in Palm Springs for a birthday party, having Cucina Migrante come to our vacation rental made for a more relaxing and unforgettable dining experience. Francesco and Adisa are true pros!

Our family always enjoys good food over the holidays. This time around we decided to go with a local caterer, BAPS!, so we could relax and enjoy. They did not disappoint! The turkey breast was hot and juicy- the gravy was very good- not too thick, not too thin. Moist stuffing- mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes- had to have seconds on those! The vegetable medley was a nice change over the usual one or two separate vegetables. We are looking forward to trying out other foods BAPS! has to offer for future occasions!

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!

Daily Chew Catering dished up a bit of heaven on a plate for a holiday party recently and from the first time I contacted Carly until the last bit of food was gone, we were blown away by the entire experience. Daily Chew Catering offers a wide selection of menu options, so there's guaranteed to be something great for every palate, and everything is done well. Daily Chew does food service right, and I'll no doubt be quick to call back and start planning for our next event as soon as the time comes. Thank you for the professionalism, the amazing food, and your passion for great-tasting, incredible quality catering experience!

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!
