Marcel was amazing! It was a five star experience from the service he offered, to the food he cooked, to the time he took to prep for my event. We had two chefs at my event who were amazed and very impressed with his cooking! I highly recommend him!

The catering staff was amazing and polite. We got one chef, one assistant, one server and one DJ. They arrived on time. Server helped us set up and clean up everything. DJ was great! They did a wonderful job! Price is very reasonable and acceptable. Paid them with extra tips when service is finished. Love the team! Recommend for any events!

Marc is fantastic! This is the first time i have used a personal chef and can say its the best choice ive made.. I train gym 4-5 times per week and approached mark to make me 6 meals for 6 days of the week all equally portioned with proteins and carbs. The food was delivered fresh every two days and packed in plastic containers. It was even labelled with the nutritional values. The food itself was restaurant quality! I have eaten out at restaurants alot over the years so was little worried about how the quality of the meat would be and how well it would be cooked. Marc uses the freshest ingredients and cooks the products to perfections! I would highly recommend mark wether its a small dinner gathering or something more serious like myself with 36 meals per week! Thanks Marc

The experience was incredible. I needed a professional chef at late notice in San Clemente and he helped complete the menu with me under my budget and have spectacular food. I had at least two of everything (sides, entrees, and dessert). I could not have had a better food setup overlooking the beach in San Clemente.

Pam and her food was absolutely wonderful!!! We had a few people we could have used and am so glad we chose Pam for my in-laws 50th anniversary. My husband and I have had chefs before in our home before, but no one even compares to Pam and her food. Thank you Pam for a wonderful evening and the memory of the night will be forever!!!!

So Devine Catering catered an engagement party for my daughter. I can't say enough how awesome they are. I had never hired a caterer before and was a bit out of my element. Chef Alexa was super cool and kind enough to walk me through the process, meet with me and really did an outstanding job. Chef Alexa and her entire team are just awesome. Everyone at our party was impressed. Just can't say enough great things!

I have hired Daneen for my annual bday party dinner party in addition to many other special social functions I have put on and she embodies every attribute associated with what you find in a top notch professional chef. She is punctual, detailed and meticulous in her delivery, and extremely organized with the execution of the entire dinner. When you work with her, her delightful and charming personality wins you over in seconds and she shows you how much effort, commitment and desire she puts forth to make your dinner party a huge success. She cares about her work as if she was cooking for her own family. As for her actual cuisine, one of the most underrated and undiscovered culinary gems we have here in our city. I have told her countless times that if she ever needs a willing tongue to taste anything she is experimenting with, count me in! I consider myself to be a snobby foodie with a demanding palate and even when " whips up a little something" I am on cloud nine and demanding that any and all leftovers are mine to keep. She genuinely loves to cook and you can really taste all the love she puts into her work. For anyone reading this review, do yourself a favor and treat yourself to her culinary magic and you too will soon be more than excited to write a review like this one for her.

I was working out with a trainer, and doing cardio at least 6 times a week; I was barely moving the needle on the scale I stood on each day. My trainer was very helpful in helping me realize it was what I was eating each day and not eating enough of the “right” foods. My trainer had suggested I look at a few meal plans. As I was looking at this options I knew if I got the “standard” meal plan delivery from one of the well-known companies, I would end up throwing half of the food away. I then made a conscious effort to explore and search for other options, and I discovered Carmi. I have been very pleased with my results, and I have been utilizing her personal chef services for almost two years! My original plan was to utilize her for six months, as I prepared to be on a web-series reality show. I dropped the weight I needed and I made a choice to continue with her. I love that we design my meals each week, and we change them according to my palate, and what I need to help keep me healthy. I will tell you all of her meals are scrumptious and addictive! I have regular requests each week, as I must have those dishes! She is very dependable, reachable and always ready to work with you. This is a truly one-on-one personal chef design. Take all of those frozen food meals in your freezer and toss them out; as Carmi’s meals are fresh and organic and just plain yummy!

Chad was very pleasant from the start. His home was very inviting, clean, and safe. He gave me a debrief on his experiences and specialties. His background in Kinesiology works in his favor, he is very aware of the anatomy, and knows exactly how to target the pressure points, properly. The mood was set, and he use an adequate amount of oil (I dislike for a masseur to use too much), and he was conversational and kind the entire time. Additionally, his height worked in his favor, as well, because he is able to move fluidly and adequately apply his body weight to maximize the massage experience. I left feeling light, loose, and less stress. Lastly, Chad also took the time to educate me on the muscles groups and small parts of the body/muscles that I was not aware of. Overall, great experience and I will return for another great session.

Shelley was an excellent professional from the moment we made contact. I was looking for a fun, team-building exercise as part of a staff retreat, and I would absolutely recruit Shelley for any future activity with our staff. Admittedly, I am not a vegan, plant-based person...so when I first saw her focus, I was a little hesitant. Our staff also are mostly omnivores. We aren't too picky but I knew we would be tired after a long day together. When I talked about our objectives and she put a proposed menu together (and also explained that we wouldn't have access to any kitchen or heat sources)...even I became excited about the evening and the food! I'll say that when we told our staff the "surprise" activity, they were more excited about her class than about the fact that we were going to spend the entire next day at Knott's Berry Farm! Shelley was early to the site, set up quickly, dove right in and immediately got us making a dish that would get food into our tummies after a long day of our staff retreat so that we wouldn't be "hangry." She "read" our group dynamic with a slick expertise and moved at a pace that kept us engaged. When she taught us knife skills, we were able to laugh and learn together in a memorable way. She had a plan for four courses, including dessert, but by the time we got to our third course -- rolling our own sushi -- everyone was literally rolling on our own because we were SO FULL. Most people in our group had never rolled or made their own sushi so they were thrilled for the experience. Dessert was perfect because it was light -- mango with yogurt. Our staff LOVED this experience. They asked if we could do this again and work with Shelley again at some point in the future. I would happily hire her back to create more memories for us and more yummy foods and teach us more great culinary skills. Thank you, Shelley!

Wendell catered a private event, for a group of all vegan / plant based guests. The food was phenomenal and some of the best plant based food I've had. There was a large variety of flavors and dishes - greens, tempeh, tofu, seitan, tons of veggies, quinoa and more. The variety of food was so good, I am looking to bring him as a private chef for a series of wellness retreats.

Going with Darrell as my personal chef has been a gamechanger. Everything starts with what you put in your body and since hiring him to prepare meals for me, I've been eating healthy consistently, looking better and feeling better and more energized overall. I love the variety of his menus as well as his use of healthy ingredients and meticulous choice of produce and meats. Whenever I'm washing the dishes afterwards, there's never anything congealed or greasy. The meals are paired together in an expert fashion. I've been recommending Darrell to all my friends and would give more than 5 stars if possible. Best decision I've made!
