Meal was amazing; we asked for a 100% vegetarian meal and all of the courses were fantastic; he really knows how to prepare vegetarian food. Sat was engaging and professional and the service and food were outstanding. We understand why he was voted best personal chef of Thumbtack - we would definitely hire Sat again!

I've worked with many professionals over the years, most of whom have done perfectly adequate work. Once in a while I find someone who does work far beyond my expectations. Those are my rare five-star reviews. Steve Goldstone of DNL Catering is one of those outstanding professionals. He’s cooked for me on a number of occasions, but it was a family birthday celebration he catered in under somewhat challenging circumstances for us some months ago that impressed me enough to take the time to write this review. The guest of honor had requested an outdoors brunch at a remote spot in a park in the East Bay, on what turned out to be one of the hottest days of the entire summer. The heat was already well over 100° before the guests arrived, and I was very concerned how that was going to affect the food and service.  I didn’t need to worry.  Despite the location, everything was set up on time and ready before the guests arrived.  The overall look was very attractive and appetizing, with a classic picnic look. All of the food was maintained at the right temperature throughout. Cold food & beverages were thoroughly chilled; all hot items were hot and fresh, nothing limp or lukewarm. Steve worked with me to come up with a menu which succeeded in pleasing both the vegetarian guest of honor and all of the meat eaters. (In fact, my husband tried for weeks afterward to get me to duplicate the main dish!) Portions of everything were more than adequate. Steve stayed on top of everything throughout the event, and was unfailingly pleasant & helpful.  He even took a few minutes during a lull in service to help my son untangle his kite from a tree, which I thought was really going above & beyond the call of duty!  I can say without the slightest hesitation that Steve is the first person I will call for any event I need catered in the future.

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.

I am so happy I chose Green Chow Down for our catering service. The owner was extremely helpful, professional, and courteous. They have a very quick response time and made sure to adjust to all our needs. The food, service and presentation were all exceptional and we still have guest speaking on the delicious yet healthy meals Green Chow Down prepared. I highly recommend booking this restaurant for any event.

I used Flavors of Magick to provide bartender services for a party I hosted in my home. The owner was so easy to work with. And, she went above and beyond what I expected. She helped me put together a list of specialty cocktails and she sent me a grocery list of everything to buy (with quantities and estimated prices). It made everything so easy for me. On the day of the event she showed up on time and did a great job setting up. My guests had a wonderful experience and the drinks were fabulous.

Dan helped me throw a surprise party. Not only did he make delicious food, but also had everything ready to go for guests before I even arrived with the guest of honor. He also accommodated dietary restrictions, left the kitchen super clean and even packed up the few leftovers for our refrigerator. We ate the Vietnam-inspired menu. Highly recommend!

GREAT SERVICE We got married yesterday and had to post a review immediately because Affordable Chef was so great! Chef Mark was punctual in replying to my questions before the big day, which, as an out-of-town bride, was very reassuring! At the last minute, Chef Mark was unable to attend the reception, but his on-site chef made delicious food, and the staff were phenomenal! There was one staff member in particular who took an interest in my Husband and I. She told us that we were her "celebrities for the day," made sure we ate appetizers before we walked in, escorted us to the buffet first, and was constantly checking on our drinks. She also took an interest in our families, leading many people to tell us how amazing she was! The bartender Chef Mark sent was also lovely, knew her stuff, and made our signature cocktails perfectly! All in all, a great experience and a company we would trust our next big event to!
