He did everything he said he would, and more. Could not have asked for a better chef. His assistant, Michelle, helped me so much. Excellent appetizers, dinner and dessert. Everyone went back for seconds and thirds! Truly a successful evening. Highly recommend!

They catered the appetizers and dinner and provided servers, tables and linens. The food was delicious and competitively priced. Evan was very responsive and made planning quick and easy.

Sat was incredible! He cooked an amazing 3 course meal for 8 assorted finicky, typical, crazy Bay Area dietary restricted people (gluten-free, lactose intolerant, vegetarian, etc.) and made us all happy!! I got stuck at work so I left a key under my mat for St to get in and start cooking. When I got home, my house smelled amazing! Sat found everything, was already cooking away and comfortable. He is not only a great chef, but a really warm and down to earth person. You can tell he loves what he does and it shows in his food. Aside from the fantastic herbed zucchini goat cheese appetizer that was scarfed down by everyoe rather quickly, we had the best kabocha squash soup I have ever had and grilled sea bass on a quinoa pilaf that was to die for. (My mouth is watering as I write this!) I had told Sat that I was going to do my own hors d'oeuvres and had bought some cheese and fruit spreads, baguette, grapes, etc. Sat offered to help me plate and arrange them and I wish I could channel him every time I entertain. My platters were gorgeous. I would (and will) hire Sat back in a heartbeat. I'm planning already......

Debbie was professional from the start. It was inevitable that she takes pride in her food making sure that whatever she serves not only looks great, but tastes great. She was willing to prepare an appetizer that she's never made before and it turned out perfect. I received many compliments from my guests on the party table and some are interested in hiring Made With Love for their parties. Thank you Debbie for doing such a wonderful job! The name of your business suits your service.

A Plus Catering did a fantastic job for my New Year's Eve/50th birthday party. Jennine sourced all the rentals and the DJ. Everything was delivered and picked up as requested. Full cost including rentals, DJ, bartender and two servers was kept within my budget. With Jennine providing everything needed I was able to relax in Hawaii, returning home late on the 30th. Everyone arrived timely, we had delicious appetizers and music playing before the guests arrived. Hot appetizers, drinks and a champagne toast at midnight! Thank you for making this happen Jennine ❤️

Working within our budget, Stephanie created an appetizer menu that delighted our wedding guests. Stephanie stepped in with only a few days before our event and delivered all the items early. Before leaving Stephanie checked in with us to see if she had met our needs. We would hire her again in a heartbeat.

As a event coordinator I have worked with Steve and the folks at DNL Catering on many special occasions. We have worked together on wedding and baby showers, brunches, wedding receptions, work Christmas parties and anniversary parties. They always provide a menu to your request and the playing of the food is always on beautiful plates and dishes, not aluminum trays. There are always compliments on the foods from the guests. We are always a happy with the selections. Their website makes it easy to browse their menu and I always receive a reply promptly when I submit an event request online. DNL Catering is on my preferred vendor list when I meet with future clients. I have used them in my own home numerous times. They are my 'go to' caterers for any event.

Richmond Main Street was one of the first catering jobs that Quiche and Carry ever did. Deborah was great. She was very attentive to us as customers and wanted to make sure that she got it right. The quiches were delicious. She is very creative and knows how to mix flavors. I had never tried a dessert quiche before and was a bit skeptical but it was fantastic. I would highly recommend her. Although it was her first job she was great. We have used her since that first time and will continue to use her. Yum!

I had a great experience with hiring Kitchenina as our caterers for an event with 40 people. The communication was always prompt, polite and friendly. They did a great job on the day of the event to ensure that the food was delivered on time (despite the traffic/weather conditions) and made my job as the event organizer much easier. I would definitely work with Kitchenina again in the future, and regret that I did not take photos of the food! (Thanks for the brownies as well!)

The vegetarian meal that Grace catered for us at my home for my 70th birthday was superb. Fantastic artichoke appetizer, main course of 3 items that blended in flavors beautifully, and tiramisu that she made for dessert. She worked quietly, served, and then cleaned up. Very high recommendation!

Graham made our Christmas a delight! The dinner was a highlight of our day and we didn't have to do anything. He made and served a delicious dinner for 10 (including my twin toddlers) and it was completely carefree. I will definitely be working with him again!

This caterer prepared lunch for 30 people on Memorial Day for us. We found them on Thumbtack and we’re glad we went with them! Everything was as expected or better! First of all, their smoked ribs were AMAZING. Everything else (chicken skewers-very tender, deviled eggs with smoked bacon, garlic and honey meatballs, grilled corn, vegan pasta salad, arugula salad) was delicious as well. Everyone should add their Bourbon Banana Pudding for dessert, because it was so good! I love Paul Martin's banana cream pie, but this pudding was even better! I would definitely go back to them again. Too bad I forgot to take some photos!! And yes, they are very professional. Just tell Matt what you are looking for and he'll come up with a menu for you. Easy!

A friend raved about the quality of food and service that was provided by John DeMartini Catering. Without hesitation I called John and asked him to come up with a grazing menu for a cocktail party I was having for 40 women at my home. Not only did he provide a yummy and beautiful array of appetizers and desserts to feed a crowd, he made it so easy! I just opened the door. His service was fantastic and the food left you craving for an extra bite or two or three! This is my go to caterer from now on.

Catered our New Years party for 16. Appetizers and food were excellent. Specializes in veggie, but did a meat course for us. All ingredients fresh, organic and gluten free. The gnocchi was to die for!

I wanted my own birthday to be one I could enjoy, I love cooking and I am always the one hosting and doing it myself! I decided for the first time to hire someone so I could have the night to enjoy. This is where Zack came in. I canteven begin to describe how great he was! He took over everything and made the night perfect! He worked with me on the menu and made everything seem possible, his menu he sent me looked amazing and creative. He arrived on time and immediately started preparing. The food was beyond my expectations, three entrees, which included a steak dish with delicious sauces, a Moroccan chicken stew and a shrimp dish with kale and corn, four side dishes, all unique and so perfectly complimentary to the entrees! My guests were so pleased. It really made my birthday! Thank you so much! Can't wait to have you back!

I didn’t take pictures to show you guys but Cheri did an excellent job on my fiancé’s and my dinner for two. Not only did the food taste great but the set up was very nice. We had no hesitation hiring her for our upcoming June 2019 wedding! She will give you quality food for an affordable price. Not to mention she also has other vendors if your looking to have her company cater your wedding. She puts time and detail into her creations. I definitely recommend her.

What an incredible pop-up and delicious food! Dennis was awesome in working with our organization for our holiday party. He was very responsive and helped us organize platters for ~80 people. His food was demolished by our team well before the night ended. Highly recommend!

It what can only be described as a limited and challenging environment, Rainbow Chefs provided a gourmet dinner for my executives that was truly exquisite. Everything about the process was handled well with great communication from Lana. I chose Rainbow Chefs after initial conversations with more than 20 caterers because I was convinced that she was really listening to me. Chef Nicholas created a masterpiece of a dinner that was enjoyed by everybody. It was the highlight of a long day.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
