We hired Chef Pete for breakfast and dinners for our private group of 10. Every single thing he made was absolutely wonderful! He was very professional & easy to get a long with. I would recommend him to anyone!

I hosted a 50th birthday dinner at our home last night form my wife and 12 of her close girl friends. Senorita Gourmet Andrea Gray catered a Mexican themed dinner for us and did an outstanding job. The ladies absolutely loved it and my wife could not have been more pleased with her birthday dinner. Thank you Andrea. We interviewed three other private chefs for our dinner before deciding to go with Andrea. She was the most professional, the most responsive, and by far the most creative. Of course we wanted great food (Andrea can deliver that), but we were also looking for something unique and creative, without being stiff and formal. Enter Andrea, with her Mexican themed dinner complete with her own plates, glasses and table decorations. Fun, Festive, and Uniquely Fresh! As for the food and drink. Key highlights were the Raspberry Mojitos, Avocado Soup, Quiche de Calebazita, and Mexican Corn Cake. I highly recommend the Una Senorita Gourmet.

My husband forgot to tell me he had agreed to host a cocktail party for 40 guest only 8 days away. When I talked to Graham he said he was available and within a day he had a menu and some suggestions about the bar.Graham arrived at our apartment in S.F. 2 hours before the event and just made everything so easy and and gracious that the party seemed like it had been planned way in advance. Graham served small bites of very tasty canapes and wonderful french style sliders that satisfied everyone. The whole evening was a success from set up to clean up and I was able to enjoy being the hostess and not worry about anything. Graham makes eating good food a total joy and I look forward to catering future parties with him as the Chef. Carole

Daniella Bensimons' food is like music that you can eat. Her food is delectable, delicious and is farm-to-table fresh. I've yet to meet someone eating her food at a party that doesn't like it. 5 star cuisine from one of the best Chefs in the East Bay

I've known Grace for many years. I have been over to her house for home cooked meals that were truly gourmet, and delicious. She also prepared some food and sold it from her home. On the level of catering for large parties, I went to our friend Dave's party last month were Grace did the catering. The food was flawless, delicious, with great presentation, and great variety. I strongly recommend Grace for catering your events.

Chef Reina has over 20 years of cooking experience under her belt. Raised in the Philippines, she originally learned to cook from her grandmother. After her grandmother passed away, Reina decided to become a chef to honor her memory. Having owned a successful catering business in the San Francisco Bay Area for several years now, Reina brings authentic international dishes with a touch of California cuisine to area companies and families. Reina knows taste and health aren't mutually exclusive. Aside from cooking well-balanced, healthy dishes with fresh ingredients, she brings comfort food and a taste of home in her dishes that will make you feel warm and fuzzy on the inside. My clients include startup companies, busy investors, intimate gettogethers, entrepreneurs, weddings and much more.

Dawn and Marty were simply amazing. Marty is the chef and is more passionate about food then any chef I've ever met. He went beyond the extra mile to prepare amazing food for our wedding. The quality of the food and the the caliber of service provided by Dawn was outstanding. We live over 300 miles away from where the wedding was held so we had to hire our caterer remotely. We were worried about that at first, but Dawn put us completely at ease. She arranged for a site visit and then a private tasting at their facility. That was AMAZING! Appetizers, main courses, desert AND wine. What a great preview. Dawn helped us coordinate our order with the rental company and gave lots of helpful tips. Marty accommodated a special request my bride wanted which was to replace the traditional wedding cake with a tiered 60 cup Creme Brûlée desert tower! Wow... incredible. I heard several guest snuck two helpings :) Dawn and Marty were not just Caterers, they became family to us as they helped make the day a huge success! We would absolutely recommend their service to others and will use them again!

I am a highly experienced restaurant and catering chef. My chef experience includes Postrio in San Francisco, The Left Bank, and California Cafe in Marin, as well as over 12 years of private chef work in homes and other venues from small to large events. There is nothing I cannot prepare and prepare well. I specialize in a variety of cuisines. Even though I do have an emphasis on healthy eating, I can prepare any kind of food for any occasion. If you want food that tastes great and is good for you, look no further. In addition to private events, I deliver meal plans three days a week that are prepared in a commercial kitchen. I prepare great tasting healthy meals to fit any lifestyle and have extensive experience with many different diet approaches. I am open to preparing meals in your home on a weekly basis as well. Dieting and healthy eating is time consuming, and the problem I hear from all my clients is they just don't have the time. Call for a free consultation with a sports nutritionist (my husband) and chef, and let us create a fit meal plan that is right for you and every member of your family. Please see my website for photos and information. Sidenote: Some of the pictures that you see of food on my listing are items that I created for a frozen food line. Thank you! Bethany

It was a joy to work with Denise Ravizza and "Dinner's at the Table!" Denise went above and beyond to create the perfect menu for our holiday party. The food was delicious and beautifully presented and featured fresh, seasonal ingredients. The desserts were so good, we wish we had ordered twice as much. I would highly recommend Denise and "Dinner's at the Table" to anyone!

Quick response even when he was busy. Focused on food prep, not how "good" he was as a chef. Able to meet our need for delivered meals. First meal delivery was tasty, met the specs for 1 vegan & 1 omnivore. He's a little new to the area, got lost x1, and called promptly for new directions. Very nice guy, good businessman.
