Oh my. There are not enough stars for how perfect this private chef dinner was. From the first contact chef Boris and Carolina were so very attentive and lightening fast responders. Carolina is the most organized and sets your mind at ease that no detail will be forgotten or left out. I never worried they would execute our requests to perfection. She's is calming and a can do yes person. Pricing is beyond fair. The food was beautiful. The presentation was contemporary and current. The taste was spot on and no one left a bite on a plate. 10 star flavors and service. Left the place spotless. I have not one thing I would edit. It is so nice knowing before the event even begins you are in good hands. The attention Carolina gives sets all your worries free so chef Boris can come in and just hit it out of the park while you and guests sip cocktails.

I have been searching for someone i could trust who could make my daughters unicorn cake for her first birthday (im a very picky person). I was going to do a little photoshoot of my daughter smashing the cake. Im so happy i found Millie she went above and beyond to make sure she knew exactly want i wanted on the cake. It was all a last minute thing and im happy she was able to make it for me, she delivered the cake to me and the minute i saw the cake i knew i finally found someone who can make all my future cakes and pastries. I already booked her again for my daughters birthday party this coming Saturday. Thank you Millie and her assistant !!

Highly recommend!! I had Chantel do desserts for my sister's baby shower and she did an incredible job. Not only were the cookies, cake cops and cupcakes beautiful they also tasted amazing. She delivered the treats to my door giving me one less thing to think about on the day of the party. Will use again. Thanks Chantel and Bella :)

I highly recommend Chef Renee and the Luscious Bites team for all your catering needs. We recently had our Annual Corporate Sales Meeting and had multiple Sales Reps visiting California for the week. After weeks of planning and setting up a few evening events to entertain our Reps, we found out 5 days before one of the events that the original plan was no longer going to work. In a last-minute mad dash to throw together a themed dinner party we asked around for recommendations and the moment I spoke with Jessica and received the menu I knew I found the right company. Best decision we made was to hire them. Chef Renee and her team made everything so streamlined and simple on our end. We literally picked the food and they handled everything else. From set up to break down to clean up, we did NOTHING!!! Which was a nice change since we usually do EVERYTHING. Not only did they accommodate us with regards to our time sensitive needs, They also were great at helping us choose the best menu to fit our Polynesian theme. Their pricing was more than reasonable esp. for all she and her team did to provide such a great atmosphere with such great food. AND THE FOOD IS GREAT, phenomenal is even a better word to describe the choices for our dinner party. We took all the reps to the Cayman Islands one year for this meeting and can you believe I got more compliments and rave reviews about our Laguna Beach event then I did about being on an ISLAND. It is all attributed to Chef Renee's food and her team's service. All in all, the event went off without a hitch. Thanks so much again to Chef Renee and her team. You will NOT be disappointed and no need to keep searching. Just book them for your event today.... you hit the jackpot!!

Jennifer was a consummate professional. She arrived on time each day with a smile and ready to teach 3 wonderfully spirited young girls. She had patience and showed kindness to the girls and taught them how to bake very difficult pastries and a cake that you would find in a professional bake shop or patisserie. We were very pleased and would use Jennifer again.

Ashley made the cake for my wedding - a tall task for some, but not for her. To say she knocked it out of the park would be an understatement. First of all the cake - this thing was the simplest, elegant, and most beautiful piece of work in pastry form that I've ever seen and tasted. Ashley's passion for her craft really shines through in her work (see the picture). And second of all the professionalism - Ashley is one bad-@$$ pastry chef, and she is an absolute joy to work with. Super responsive, super helpful, super sweet, super down-to-earth. I can't recommend Ashley enough. 6 stars!

Ashli has made a few cakes for me. She mad my sons baby shower cake, his first birthday cake and most recently his second birthday cake. She always delivers cakes that are beyond my expectations!!! Her cakes are delicious I've never had any complaints from our party guests. I also never have any cake left. Ashli makes everything by hand including her fondant which is my personal favorite. (I've never liked fondant until I tried Ashli's) All of her cakes and pastries are her own personal recipes, I've never tried a flavor I didn't like. I have people in my family who don't even like cake but look forward to her cakes each time we have a party. Not only are her cakes delicious but her decorations are impeccable! Every time I've given her an idea she delivers a cake that exceeds all expectations. Last years theme was kale and the never land pirates this years theme was PJ masks. Both cakes were amazing. Once she created a birthday cake for my dads 50th birthday which was in the shape of a crown royal bottle. I had a special request for her to add crown royal to the cake which she did. She created a whole new recipe just to satisfy her customer, me. The flavor of the cake was delicious and as always the design was flawless! I definitely recommend her to any and everyone who is looking for that statement cake at their next party. Ashli takes great pride in her work. She truly loves and is passionate about each of her designs. She treats each cake as a masterpiece and it truly shows in her work. Thanks Ashli and can't wait until next June for his 3rd birthday!

    I've been to several events where Gerald was the main chef that catered and executed the event. His work is meticulous in the kitchen, and his food is excellent. His pastries are incredible and he even makes vegetarian dishes! Every encounter I've had with him has been great. The food is always made to perfection.

    Ellena is incredible! She offers amazing food and exceptional service. She clearly loves what she does and is passionate about food and clients, offering creativity and customization. Whether looking to feed yourself or your family healthy meals or looking to host a knock-your-socks-off catered gathering - I work with her regularly for both and there is nothing she doesn't wow me with. The best Cuban sandwiches you have ever tasted for a fun Miami night theme, mashed potatoe bar for a midnight comfort food theme at a fancy holiday party - Ellena is creative, kind, and extremely talented. I would highly recommend her.

    We hired Brian to cook for a group of 22 for our friends 30th B'day party. Leading up to the event, communication was fantastic - Brian was responsive, communicative, and flexible with regard to logistics, menu selection, etc. He was happy to accommodate our requests, but able to offer informed, thoughtful recommendations in areas where we deferred to him, which we really appreciated since this was our first time hiring a chef for an event. During the party Brian and his assistant were efficient and competent - everything ran ahead-of-schedule, and the food was fantastic! All our guests have asked for his card to hire him for their special events, and we look forward to having Brian cook for us again!
