Absolutely amazing! Monica went above and beyond for our wedding. We had 160 guests who all loved our Mexican candy table, especially the chamoy fountain! It was a huge hit. They all didn't eat their dinner because they filled up on yummy candy ;)

Taco Daddy was an amazing deal They charged a VERY cheap price for amazing tacos at my wedding, which was anticipated to feed 150 guests. It's probably not a surprise that, as the bride, I didn't have a lot of interaction with the vendors, and I barely got to eat myself, because there are SO many things going on, and the day flies by so quickly! Therefore a lot of my review is a collection of comments from guests and volunteers at my wedding. I WILL say that my husband and I got the first tacos snuck to us immediately after the ceremony, and as our guests agreed, they were delicious and had all the fixings, plus rice and beans! Though they said they would bring 4-6 servers, they only brought the cook and two young boys to serve. There wasn't enough meat left at the end, so had all of our 150 guests shown up, there wouldn't have been enough food. BUT, the food was great and everyone really enjoyed it! They worked really hard and did their best, especially for being so cheap. Wonderful food for such a low cost, easy to communicate with leading up to the wedding, and cooperative with our venue restrictions and delayed ceremony/reception schedule. May not be used to doing such large groups or weddings, but an amazing deal. We are thankful they could be a part of our big day!

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.

He helped us out with ideas to customize a delicious menu that satisfied vegetarians as well as non vegetarians. Food and service were exceptional. I recommend chef David to anyone. He will truly put 110% in making your event memorable.

For the past 10 years, a group of my college friends and I get together for a Christmas gathering. This was our first time having our dinner party catered and I'm so glad we connected with Joan. She is absolutely (!) fantastic to work with and she prepared an excellent Italian meal for us. We all couldn't stop raving about the food and we are all looking forward to working with her in the future.

We can't say enough good things about Chef Reneé and her team at Luscious Bites. They catered both our wedding for 100 at our home in Thousand Oaks and the brunch the following morning. They did a fabulously wonderful job. My family is of French heritage and filled with good cooks and foodies. So, the food part of the wedding was VERY important to us. We interviewed a dozen caterers, we went to a few tastings and even tried a several local restaurants in the initial planning stages. We were beginning to get worried that we would have to settle for less than we wanted until we met with Chef Reneé. Her stellar personality and her food at the tasting put both of our minds at ease and we knew that we had found the person who would cater our wedding to our standards. The food was all delicious and beautifully presented - crab stuffed Chilean Sea Bass, Blood Orange Glazed Pork tenderloin (to die for!), Saltimboca chicken, Saffron and Roasted Garlic mashed potatoes, asparagus with grilled red peppers and onions, arugula salad with heirloom baby beets and cherry tomatoes, Japanese cheesecake with 5-spice caramel, triple chocolate mousse cups and an apple tartlett. The brunch the next morning was equally wonderful as well, I mean stuffed French toast do I need to say more. All of the guests raved about the food! And, their wait staff was perfect. It couldn't have gone better! With all of the stresses that a wedding entails, Chef Reneé and her team definitely wasn't one of them. She was responsive, flexible with our many changes and positive and upbeat. She even handle the arrival unexpected guests at the brunch with grace and without missing a beat. They are everything you could ever want and we'll definitely use them again!!

Leslie did the desserts for my wedding rehearsal dinner and they were spectacular. By the end of the party, the plates with the desserts on them were the only ones finished, not because we didn't have enough, but because they were that good. She made Strawberry Champagne Cupcakes and Mini Oreo Cheesecakes for me and I dream about them offer. I have had the pleasure of having her baked goods plenty of other times at other engagements and I've never been disappointed. She rocks and I recommended her to the moon and back!

Catherine made my wedding cake. She really listened to what my husband and I were asking for, and she baked a cake that was even more delicious and beautiful than I imagined! Our guests raved about it too. She's also a very easygoing, fun person to work with. We received preliminary sketches of the cake and a list of recipes tailored to our flavor preferences. I cannot recommend Catherine highly enough!

    I had my bridal shower earlier this year in April, and was taken back by the beautiful dessert bar. Not only were the mini desserts and pastries delicious, the whole table was so pretty and detailed. I can’t say enough about all of the desserts, but the cake pops were to die for. You may think to yourself, “Ok, cake pops are so easy to make. Roll up cake into a ball and dip it in melted chocolate.” Nope! You have not had cake pop, until you’ve had this one. They were deliciously moist, with decorative floral designs that looked as if they came out of a magazine — they were that good! The chocolate covered strawberries were made so well — the chocolate had a nice, refreshing crisp, when you bit into it, with designs that were personalized for me. And last, but not least, the taro parfait. If you don’t know what taro is, you’ll need to look it up because the taro parfait was absolutely mouthwatering. I can go on and on about the cookies and the rest of the desserts, but I think you get the point. Did I mention that Mary used different candies and mediums in my wedding colors at the dessert bar? Thank you, Mary, for doing such a wonderful job!

    Bruce Nishimwe is an outgoing, warm and enthusiastic caterer. He helped us plan and organize our wedding anniversary celebration in relatively little time. Prior to confirming, he let us taste the delicious food without charge, and provided good advice in planning. We enjoyed the staff who served, and our guests really enjoyed the food. He was also willing to learn about cutting cake for many guests, when cake was not on his menu. He brought wristbands for our guests since our event was in a public park, something we didn't think of ourselves, as a way to confirm that the people he served were actually our guests. We love Bruce's sunshine personality!
