We hired Baja's Tacos & Catering for my husband's birthday party and we were very impressed! They did a wonderful job providing a delicious dinner for the party of 35 folks at our home. The guests raved about the food - especially the homemade tortillas and the guacamole. The service they provided was efficient and friendly. I would highly recommend them for your next event!

Jose at Mr Worldwide Catering, did the catering for an 80th birthday party for us on March 28 2015, we did tacos, rice, beans, he also did fruit, cheese, and veggie platters for us. The food was all excellent, the service was awesome, was there when he stated he would be, did all the set up and clean up of food. Really enjoyed the professional way things were done. Everyone at the party raved about the food, and how nice everything was set up. He even had flowers for his food table to really made it look great. I hope I have the chance to use him again, for other things this is one TOP NOTCH CATERING SERVICE.

What can't I say about Lillian! She was not only friendly, sweet, personable, engaging, funny and definitely a delightful edition to our small birthday party, her food was TOO DIE FOR!! I'm still craving her lamb lollipop and goat cheese puff pastry a day later! The steak was melt in your mouth like butter and the chocolate cake was delicious! She even was thoughtful enough to personalize it for the birthday girl! We all loved her, were extremely grateful we got her and more so wish we could hire her every weekend for her fantastic food and company!! Thank you so much Lillian!

I have nothing but great things to say about the service, quality, and overall delivery of Best Mobile Chef. From beginning to end, Shawna was very attentive and professional. As a bride, I can honestly say that planning a wedding is one of the most stressful experiences in your life; however, Shawna did an amazing job at making sure I was not stressed or worried when it came to the catering, bartending, and cake. She made sure that each and every need was met, and she even offered her assistance with cutting our cake even though that was out of her services. We sat down and went over every detail, and Shawna made sure to keep in touch throughout the way to maintain things and to make sure that we were on track with everything. Finally on the day of, the food and setup was more than what was expected. Our family and friends spoke so highly of the food and service. Shawna and her team was absolutely phenomenal! My husband and I would definitely book Shawna and her team again for a large dinner, and even desserts. We are both forever thankful and grateful!

The Chef Mumsie team did an amazing job of catering my 40th birthday party! From day 1, the team was quick to respond to my emails and work with our dietary restrictions, taste preferences and budget to create a memorable menu . They even prepared something on the spot, in my kitchen, for a gluten free party guest. He was extremely pleased and so were we! I’m still getting text messages from friends raving about the food and dessert. I highly recommended the Chef Mumsie team for your next event!!

Kieth, owner of Haute Productions was wonderful! I hired Haute Productions for my clients 60th birthday event. The food was amazing delicious! Kieth worked with me to match what my client wanted. There was no limits in our request. The guests raved about the mixed vegetables, seriously order them they wonderful. The chicken was moist the sauces were full of flavor. The spread also included another guest favorite, honey butter. Everyone was satisfied. I will defiantly be keeping Haute Productions on file for future clients and look forward to working with Kieth again. Thank you!

I was searching online and I found a website called thumbtack so I put my name and what kind of catering I need and about the price and how many people that I needed this for, in about 30 minutes I started getting different quotes and different estimates for exactly what I was looking for, the first person to respond to me was Avian he called me and we discussed what I needed and gave me a couple different quotes eventually he ended up working with me and the price that I needed I thought for sure it was a home run and it turned out to be an absolute success the food was amazing and there was plenty of it he worked with whatever we needed him to work with with no complaints he was very professional and he was very understanding and our families time of grieving if I had to hire him again I would do it in an instant without thinking twice and I would recommend him to any of my friends and family but I can't really say that now because my whole family did eat from him and they loved it they raved about it. The taco cart was amazing everything was so fresh I'm actually craving some of the adobada he made... 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 when the party was done he left us all the leftovers thank God cuz the next day after the party we didn't want to cook so we ended up making rolled tacos out of the meat that he left us and again it was still absolutely delicious I would like to say thank you again to Avian and his family for catering our party our family will have you back anytime thank you again so much

Christine McMaster is a hidden gem of the culinary and catering world! She was the caterer last year for a wedding I attended and I was most impressed. She completely handled an amazing dinner for 21 people with delectable Indian and Middle Eastern Food; taking care of the shopping, the food preparation, the service and cleaning up of the food and leftovers. I was so impressed that I asked her to cater an Indian Meal for 75 people! Since it was a much larger undertaking, we provided theingredients, but Chris oversaw every aspect of the preparation of a 5 course meal, and remained calm, organized and personable throughout. The food was absolutely delicious. I would absolutely recommend her for any catering needs you might have - you would be lucky to get her!

Chef Marckende was amazing! He came up with an incredibly creative menu (all vegan/vegetarian) with dumplings, potstickers, ramen, and an amazing chocolate, strawberry, blueberry layer cake. He was very responsive in the planning process, even coordinating the on-site setup/visit the night before because we were celebrating a birthday with a group of friends at an AirBnb. Couldn't have imagined a better dining experience for celebrating a birthday with the group of 11. He was very professional, came with all of the necessary supplies, took care of service and clean-up. If you're looking to choose a chef for an event, you're missing out if you don't choose Chef Marckende. He'll create a memorable meal and take care of all the details so you don't have to even think about doing anything else other than enjoying a great meal with great company.

For the last 3 years, Chef Monterey has been a constant fixture at our events.  Her food is absolutely top-notch, and she always comes up with just the right dishes for each dinner!  We've done everything from a Western-themed birthday party with authentic BBQ to a classy Old Hollywood New Year's Eve where she served an eight (!!!) course tasting menu, and her food just knocks it out of the park.   Chef Monterey is most definitely in our top 3 private chefs in Southern California (and we've gone through A LOT), and if you want absolutely AMAZING food made by a dynamic young chef with a personality to match, she's your girl!

Flavor Affinity and Chef Baker came highly recommended by a co-worker of mine.  I decided to use this service because Chef Baker was not only the first to respond to my email,  (I sent out the same email to 3 private chef/caterers) but had the most value built into his quote. He had pre-built packages but ultimately allowed us to design the whole menu! We chose a 4 course option and could not have been happier with the food, ambiance, and decor.  Lastly, as the party began to wind down, I noticed that almost the whole service area and glassware was cleaned up without anyone noticing. It was a truly impressive evening and Flavor Affinity comes highly recommended from myself and surely anyone who has had the pleasure to work with them.

Julianna was very professional in setting up all details of our event and gave a discount for the number of people we had at our event. She wrote out a very detailed contract to what would be served, time they would arrive to set up and to start serving our guests. She went over and beyond when she included a sweet and special treat for our daughter that was a spectacular surprise, Chocolate Covered Strawberries at no additional charge! Jorge the chef's meat was amazing and all the fixings! In addition they served quesadillas as an appetizer and Julianna brought them out on a tray to serve our guests! She also made a menu and asked for a pic to include! Like I said she went over and beyond! Everyone enjoyed the food, service and people! All wanting to use this company for their catering needs! Thank You Takobar!
