Chef Pete communicated well. He was responsive when I contacted him and was open to changing the menu. The meal was prepared by his sous chef, Russ. The food was exactly how I had envisioned and actually exceeded my expectations. I will hire him again when I come to Napa.

We used Cazadores for our Startup Weekend. We reserved three meals: a lunch, and two dinners. The Indian buffet was delicious! It catered our vegan, vegetarian, and omnivore needs! Everyone raved about the Indian food! We also received a Mexican taco dinner. Similarly, Evan and his team grilled the meat and had hot tacos with all the fixings! There was even churros filled with caramel and vanilla custard! Bomb!!! Everyone also enjoyed the Chinese food. It was hard to resist!

Our family was looking for a chef to prepare weekly dinners. We were new to this and Sat was extremely helpful, flexible, and collaborative. He has prepared meals for us twice and were so pleased that he now comes regularly. He works with us to design a weekly menu to suit our family's needs and understands our particular eating habits. It had become challenging to juggle work, activities and cooking, and we grew tired of eating out. This service has allowed us to reduce the amount of stress in planning and preparing meals and decrease worry about eating healthy. We can now enjoy precious time with our children with a delicious home cooked meal.

We hired Made With Love (Debbie) to cook a meal for our group of 5 one evening at our Air B&B in Sonoma. It was awesome to come home after a day of wine tasting to a lovey home cooked meal. Debbie had appetizers ready for us when we arrived, and the house smelled delicious. There was more than enough food... we even cancelled our reservations at Ad Hoc the next night to enjoy the leftovers!

Alisa Hill was professional, courteous and personable from the start. Her candor was refreshing! She catered a family dinner in our home following a wedding reception. She was ready to serve 70 guests on time and with a most pleasant demeanor. We requested a buffet baked potato bar and salad bar. It was fantastic! The whole family raved about the selection and especially about her chicken smothered in a creamy mushroom sauce with wine. I don't think there was anything left out for our guests to put on their salads or baked potatoes. The actual event was from about 5:30 to 9 pm. Alisa came with most of the food prepared and ready to serve. No lack of preparation on her part that I observed. She did what she said she was going to do and did it with a smile. Professional with me, with our guests and with her assistant, Taylor. When they were done, the food was all packed away into the refrigerator, and the kitchen was clean. Until the day of the event, I'd never hired a caterer, instead I had always prepared food for my company. This was a most positive experience and can recommend Alisa Hill and Passionate Plates without reservation!

Hi had the pleasure of selecting Chet to prepare a menu and work my Friendsgiving event which was my first time starting a tradition with my friends. From Chet's initial response to my quote request through the end of my event, the services provided were first class! Chet worked with me on my menu and I felt that he truly listened and took my vision into consideration when delivering my sample menu. I was extremely nervous since in the past, I would always be the one to prepare meals for my guest however, this year I wanted to do something different allowing me the opportunity to spend time with my guest instead of slaving in the kitchen. Chet checked in with me a few days prior to my event to confirm final details and then it was show time. He showed up on time as expected with everything needed along with a helper and the magic began. I am very satisfied with the outcome. From the taste and flavors of the food, the presentation, the hospitality Chet and his crew showed my guest, the clean up, to Chet's willingness to do more than expected (setting up tableware and more). A+ to Chet. He will certainly be my go to for future events in need of catering. Well done!

I've been fortunate to experience both formal and informal meals prepared by Graham. Not only is he a gifted and sophisticated chef with knowledge of foods, wines, and culinary techniques from around the world, but he also has a great ability to craft the perfect setting for a meal. He could fill an empty warehouse with warmth, romance, and a sense of something worth celebrating. Graham is committed to his craft and takes great pride in his work. You will not be disappointed.

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.

My husband hired Rose to cater a private dinner at our home in celebration for my 40th birthday. It was a 5 course meal for 20 people, and the food was fantastic! We started with 4 different appetizers during the cocktail hour, followed by a salad course, entree (guests were able to choose from 5 options, which I really liked), cheese course (my favorite) and dessert. We had never hosted anything like this at home before and it took us some time to figure out what we wanted . Rose was very responsive throughout the planning process and and helpful when it came to giving us suggestions and guidance. On the day of the event her team helped us to set up our tables. Once the party started they required no direction from us and kept the meal running very smoothly, allowing my husband and I to enjoy ourselves to the fullest. Rose and her crew were truly instrumental in making this milestone a most memorable one for me. We would not think twice to book her again.

I had Rainbow chef cater a baby shower. Lana was very helpful in the planning and menu selection and offered some great suggestions. The mother to be was on some food restrictions so Lana worked around that too. They prepared a nice mid day Mediterranean inspired meal with chicken lettuce cups, roasted vegetables with tahini sauce, a wonderful bruschetta, fruit salad and cupcakes in assorted flavors. The feedback on the food was amazing. Jenny showed up with the food and prepared it on my serving trays. She was on time and left my kitchen counter clean. I would highly recommend Rainbow chefs and will use them for future parties.

Everything about working with James was outstanding. I hosted a small dinner party for my family. Before the event, James suggested a couple menus based on our preferences. Communication before the dinner was excellent and clear. We all loved the food prepared--an arugula salad, chilean sea bass, and a lemon macaroon pie. He was also a pleasure to have in my house. Friendly, kind, and easygoing. I would definitely hire him again and highly recommend him.

Lucas did a tremendous job for us. He accommodated last minute changes, dietary restrictions and additional guests. The food was superb. He personally delivered everything on Thanksgiving, quickly organized the meal for us, ensured everything was perfect and then excused himself. We had enough food for three times the number of people and had leftovers that saw us through the entire holiday weekend. All 14 of us heartily thank and recommend Lucas.

The Dishes are so flavorful and delicately put together. I can tell a lot of time goes into preparing the dishes. I think what I like most is that all the ingredients are top shelf, and its prepared food that I can not get anywhere else at this level of quality. It's above restraunt standards. Especially impressed by the fact that they can hit the mark on so many dietary specific needs and still make it taste amazing! Get the Asian pear muffins! Or any of her famous baked goods! They will not disappoint.

We hired Zach for a family reunion dinner at a cabin we were renting in Lake Tahoe. Although everybody enjoyed the food he prepared, it wasn't ready until about 1 hour after we said we wanted to eat. The dessert also took longer than expected to be ready. Zach was very professional and kind throughout his time at our cabin. Our only complaint was the timing of the meal.

We recently hired Eileen and her staff with What's Cookin to cater a backyard luau party. From beginning to end, she was very easy to work with. The bottom line is that her food was AMAZING! What a talent!! Our party guests raved about the dishes she prepared. Since the party was themed, we worked together to come up with the perfect selections for a summer luau. Her staff that worked the party with her were super friendly and smiley, professional, and instinctively knew how to "be there" for our guests needs. As the hosts of the party, my husband and I were able to focus entirely on our guests, which is exactly what we were looking for. We were all very impressed with everything, and are certain we found our new favorite caterer! Thanks Eileen and your staff for a job well done!

Chef Sacha has prepared meals for me on several occasions. Whether a special event or dinner party, he always takes great care to ensure that the ingredients used are in season, and of quality. He is understanding and willing to accommodate any food allergies or aversions, and provides options for those with specialty diets. His twist on French classics creates flavor combinations that are tasteful and surprising, while his take on American bistro fare elevates your childhood favorites. His meals are always delicious, and the presentation impeccable. I highly recommend Chef Sacha for any of your culinary needs.

Meg prepared meals for us weekly for the past year, and her food is scrumptious! In addition to cooking really delicious meals, she tailored our menus to fit some fairly complicated dietary restrictions. The dishes were flavorful, complex, and satisfying. If you are lucky enough to hire her, you won't be disappointed!
