Marcel was EXCELLENT! I had an unusual catering job, one he hadn't done before. He was terrific at following up with me, patient when I had to delay getting back to him, and took care to understand exactly what I needed. And then he carried it out to the letter, with perfect results. And he's super easy to work with. By sheer coincidence, one of my event attendees had used his catering services just a couple of months before, and also had only glowing reviews of his food and his service. If you have need for catering or chef services, you can't go wrong by hiring Marcel for the job. I can't wait to use him again!

Mr. World Wide Catering was amazing at our wedding. Jose offers very professional service at very affordable prices! Our guests loved the food. He also provided bartending service for us and our guests definitely loved the open bar. Everyone was so friendly and had great customer service. Jose delivered our plate of food personally. Cannot say enough great things about him and his team. Thank you so much!

Shawna is AMAZING!! She was the ONLY vendor we had for our wedding that didn't give us any difficulties. I emailed her asking to make changes and every time her response was "of course"! The food was amazing and her services were beyond outstanding. Shawna was flexible in creating our brunch menu and catered to a handful of vegans we had on our guest list. Even our non vegan guests enjoyed the vegan options! We were looking forward to left overs but everyone enjoyed the food so much, there were none!! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a caterer whether it be a wedding or any special event. I am definitely keeping her information in case I need a caterer again someday! If you want to be stress free about catering, choose Shawna! You won't be disappointed!!

In the past five years my husband and I have attended several fantastic entertainment and charitable fundraisers produce by The Mark Kearney Group. Our memorable highlights include The Jewel's of France in Beverly Hills for Juvenile Arthritis hosted by Teri Hatcher , MKG Emmy suite for breast cancer hosted by Adrienne Malouff, Project Angel Food hosted by Lisa Vanderpump. I hired Chef Mark and his fabulous catering company for our wedding this April in Newport Coast California. We absolutely adore his five star Pacific Rim cuisine. The catering crew was professional, kind and captivating. It truly made our Wedding Day special.

Chef Mumsie catered an event at one of other properties and the food was so delicious, I hired her to cater our Christmas Party at our building (Bayside Terrace). She and her staff were very helpful, courteous and attentive to our needs. They were only scheduled to drop off the food due to another event occurring the same day, however, they not only dropped off the food, but stayed and assisted with setting up the warmers, provided other utensils we did not have and ensured that we were okay and ready to serve before they left. Overall, the food was delicious and the service was great! I would recommend her services to anyone who is looking for a quality catering company to service your event!

Jordan is an excellent chef and caterer. He produces food that is way beyond the standard catering services. If you want cookie cutter catering go with someone else. If you want really great food at a great price stop on by or use his catering.

I am beyond grateful to Thumbtack for connecting me to Chef Keith Prante and his team at Hautè Productions Events and Catering to cater my mom's 80th birthday celebration. They are absolutely A-MAZING! Chef Prante was one of two chefs who responded to my request via Thumbtack, and I also received a personal referral. Neither of the other caterers offered ANYWHERE NEAR the quality, selections, variety and value that Hautè offered at my price point. We had our tasting today, and it absolutely sealed the deal! Everything was delicious and the presentation was outstanding. I highly recommend Hautè Productions to any potential customer who appreciates excellence, accommodation and genuine customer service.

Hiring Steven and his phenomenal crew was the best decision we could have made for our event! We were tremendously impressed by Steven's professionalism and flexibility to all of our requests, he is an incredibly smart and resourceful businessman and was able accommodate our many brand-standards (for a very attractive price) and wow our guests with the results. The food was simply delicious, the service was exceptional (very warm and affable) and the set up/breakdown was seamless even in our small half kitchen and office space! If you're looking to work with a professional and provide a seamless catering service at your next event, I urge you to hire Steven!!

Carolina and her beautiful team were the perfect choice to cater fmy wedding reception. The food was truly delicious and generously portioned. My guests ( you don't and old) raved about the food. They crafted a menu that worked with my Fiesta themed wedding made up of the freshest ingredients cooked to perfection. Carolina was attentive to every detail- bringing us samples to try, checking in with me in the days before to see if I wanted any changes and that the prep for my home wedding was under control. She even sent her team member, Erika over the day before to help us with the decorating. There was not a single thing I didn't love about them and their food! Do it hesitate to hire Super Food for Super People for your next event! I loved them and you will too. Delicious food lovingly prepared by terrific people.

We have used Chef Mikey for both meal prep and catering. He is truly a gem. The meals he has prepped are flavorful, good variety and perfectly portioned. The last party Chef Mikey catered for us, he made jerk chicken wings that people couldn’t stop talking about. I’m craving them right now! I would highly recommend him for meal prep, private dinner parties or catering!
