Paul Lira of Nitro BBQ catered our dinner function for 65-70 people. Despite not having the general liability insurance the Temple required at the last moment to use their premises, he was able to get the proper coverage timely considering this last minute issue brought to our attention. His food was excellent & very adequate portions to cover all in attendance. Easy to work with in preparing our menu, took care of ordering all of the plates, glasses, silverware, etc which were high end adding to the evening's presentation. He showed up well in advance of the evening's function as he had promised .His staff was superb in arranging the room, setting the tables, serving and clean up. The facility was spotless when they left. I'd highly recommend Nitro BBQ and the benefit of working with Paul on all aspects of putting such an event together. If your function is on a premises requiring liability insurance, make sure to know that in advance so Paul has the necessary time to get it placed.

We have found Alisa through Thumbtack based upon the reviews and were extremely pleased with her Catering Service for our Wedding. Alisa and her team arrived early, set up the tables and had the venue smelling wonderful with all of the food she cooked. Not only did her and the team assist with the dinner service, but they also cleaned and packed away all of the rental settings. This was extremely beneficial and gave both us and our friends additional time to enjoy the day. If anyone ever needs Catering Services in the East Bay, she is the best and has the most reasonable prices! Greg-n-Greg

I can't say enough about Andrea's catering service. Food was not only DELICIOUS it was unique. A feast of spicy flavors. Each dish was well prepared--cooked to perfection. Andrea was very easy to communicate with. Very patient even through my busy event preparation stage. She arrived on time on each of our meetings, returned every phone call or email. Most importantly, she easily set up all our food for our garden party in very timely fashion. I'll definitely use Andrea again and highly recommend her for all catering events!!

Fletcher, Roshani and their whole crew went above and beyond with their organic, local, sustainable catered lunches for our office of 50. Their portion sizes are generous (we have a group of mostly 20-something guys, so that's very generous), their menus always give you health-minded options, and if there's even the smallest hiccup, they will make it right and then some the next time around. They really got to know the nuances of our diverse group (including vegans, paleos, mushroom-haters, pork-no-nos, etc.). The only thing they could've done better was to hold me to their advance notice requirement—they were way too nice about accommodating last-minute changes and were not helping me to learn to be more organized!
