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!

June was very open to any ideas I had for catering my sons birthday party and I loved that she just took the stress right off my shoulders with suggestions that were great. She was so helpful, lots of extra food, on time, and just a lovely person. I loved that she worked in my budget. The food was delicious and all homemade.

We found Prime Cuts Catering through Thumbtack, we emailed Ron and he responded via phone immediately after. We put him in touch with the host and set everything up. At the party the staff catering was excellent: professional, friendly, clean, prompt. Everything you would want and expect. But the food was absolutely amazing!!! It was cooked to perfection and we are still craving it days after!!! Everything was delicious!!! The prices and service was great! We couldn't ask for anything better!!! We are super happy we choose Prime Cuts and will definitely be using it again. We are really grateful for Ron's flexibility and timing, and are so happy he catered for my Uncle's special day! Many thanks!! Sincerely, Ashley and Clifton Rider

We had an excellent experience. We used bleu catering for a birthday party of about 20. The price was reasonable for the quality and quantity of food. Very responsive to our requests and worked with our budget. I would use them again for an event.

Fantastic meal, way exceeded expectations and was much more affordable than other private chefs we contacted. Would highly recommend to anyone hosting a dinner!! Originally we looked at making a group dinner reservation to dine out in Palm Springs for a birthday party, having Cucina Migrante come to our vacation rental made for a more relaxing and unforgettable dining experience. Francesco and Adisa are true pros!

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!

Chef David did a fantastic job catering my daughter's wedding. He was so easy to work with. He helped us out with ideas to customize a delicious menu that satisfied vegetarians as well as non vegetarians. Food and service were exceptional. I recommend chef David to anyone. He will truly put 110% in making your event memorable.

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

Tray Gourmet Catering provided a wonderful Afternoon Tea to our 140 guests in Carlsbad . They generously donated their services to our Non-Profit fundraiser impressing our Board Members, but most important our guests. The majority of our guests don't usually have an opportunity to come to such a event. Our Afternoon Tea included 5 traditional Tea sandwiches as well as special sandwiches for our young guests, We also had an assortment of 4 delicious desserts . The plate presentation was beautiful too. The entire staff was very friendly, had prompt delivery and set up and they executeded all of our requests. I also had the opportunity to see them serve a wedding in Vista. Again it was a beautiful presentation and the kitchen smelled amazing, wish I could have stayed to eat there too. Just love the staff at Tray Gourmet Catering. Jeanette Ansell Sequoia Dream Foundation

We had a phenomenal Thanksgiving Dinner prepared and delivered by BAPS catering. We were expecting about 20 people for our holiday dinner and BAPS catering delivered a wonderful meal that everyone loved. The turkey was moist, the vegetables, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and pumpkin cheesecake were delicious. Needless to say, we had enough food to satisfy everyone and still had some great Thanksgiving leftovers. We would definitely recommend BAPS catering for everyone who wants tasty food cooked just the way you like. Thanks for helping us make our holiday dinner such a success!

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!

Daily Chew Catering dished up a bit of heaven on a plate for a holiday party recently and from the first time I contacted Carly until the last bit of food was gone, we were blown away by the entire experience. Daily Chew Catering offers a wide selection of menu options, so there's guaranteed to be something great for every palate, and everything is done well. Daily Chew does food service right, and I'll no doubt be quick to call back and start planning for our next event as soon as the time comes. Thank you for the professionalism, the amazing food, and your passion for great-tasting, incredible quality catering experience!
