Great service, excellent food, outstanding communication and much more added value than expected. We hired Gourmet Lovers Catering and Cakes for our wedding reception in Laguna Beach on 10-15-16. We had a 3 months window to plan the wedding from out of town and Carolina made sure all our vendor needs from rentals to reception food to our wedding cake was taken care of. She communicated often and made sure we got what we wanted. Chef Boris and his team the day of the reception were a pleasure to be around. The food was authentic (Soft Tacos)and DELICIOUS! Directly from our guest “you hit a home run with the food”, “best wedding food, ever”, “I went back 3 times!”. Our servers Gustavo and Sophia were very accommodating and always made sure ALL guest were taken care of. Highly recommend using Gourmet Lovers Catering and Cakes for any event!!

Service was amazing. The staff was extremely professional and pleasant. The food was wonderful with large plated portions. We had 200 guests at our wedding, the servers were fast and efficient. The food arrived hot, staff showed up early in advance for set up as planned. Great times, great food.... Will hire again.

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!!

Three Little Birds Event Planning is spectacular!!! In fact, my husband and I can’t imagine our wedding day without Jessica Smith and her fabulous partner Dustin! We were blessed to have Jessica as our Day Of Coordinator for our June 14th wedding this year! From our very first meeting we knew that she was the perfect person to have in our corner. She’s amazingly detailed and highly creative. Her experience and ideas helped to make our general plan very specific and workable. And, she made sure every detail of what we wanted was executed perfectly. She even helped with our flowers… making my very beautiful bridal bouquet. We had a an amazing venue, but having to bring everything we definitely had some logistical challenges… Guests had to be shuttled to the site, and we had to changeover our room from ceremony to reception within an hour. Needless to say, everything went off without a hitch! Through the rehearsal, all of the vendor deliveries, the setup and breakdown, the coordination of our activities, interfacing with the wedding party and all of our wedding participants and guests… Jessica and her Three Little Birds were superb! I highly recommend her services! She makes magic! We loved working with her and I imagine that anyone else who works with her will love her too!

Excellent job by Susan and her staff to cater my wedding reception with over 150 guests. Susan was very patient during food selection process. She made sure all bases were covered on my day, and the food was amazing. My guests are still singing here praises. Kudos Susan and the Wild Thyme Team!!!

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.

I wish I could count how many times I heard people tell me they don't even like cake but our wedding cake was amazing. Not to mention how amazingly beautiful our cake turned out but it was so delicious! We had tastings at other places where the cakes looked nice enough but tasted bland which we didn't want. She is amazing and so creative in her work. They offer many other varieties aside from just wedding cakes as well!

I hired Sierra Madre to cater a come-and-go brunch for close friends and out-of-town guests the morning after my daughter’s wedding. Initially I was concerned about travel time from Monrovia to my home in the Larchmont area of Los Angeles, but Tonya (owner-chef) assured me she would allow for all eventualities and be there with plenty of time to set up and be ready before the guests arrived. The menu was mimosas, orange juice, lox, bagel & cream cheese (with the usual trimmings), vegetarian omelets, pancakes, cut fruit, and sour cream coffee cake, coffee and tea. Everything turned out perfect! Tonya and her assistant, Chris, were at my house early, got set up and were ready to go before the guests started arriving. The food was wonderful. The on-the-spot food, pancakes and omelets, were outstanding; and Tonya’s sour cream coffee cake was a BIG hit. The guests loved everything. The only glitch was an under estimation of how much lox, bagels and cream cheese the guests would consume. Fortunately, I had anticipated that could happen and had an extra 60 ounces of lox on hand and an extra pint of cream cheese, and we have two bagel shops within walking distance. Tonya was great to work with and having her cater made my life so much easier. It was a beautiful brunch, within my budget, and I am thankful that I took the chance on hiring her company as I had relied solely on the Thumbtack reviews when I made the choice. I’ll definitely use Sierra Catering again. The only suggestion I might make is that more attention be paid to the serving dishes used. Mixing bowls really aren’t attractive bowls to put on the buffet table.

I highly recommend Chef Mumsie for a wedding that needs catering or for any event that involves great food and wonderful service. It is hard to describe the quality of good food other than to say that it was delicious and all the guests were raving about it. Appetizers included incredible onion pastry puffs that were the talk of more than one conversation I had that night. Salad was also a big hit, not something one usually expects to say about salad. The entree was talked, posted, and blogged about. Beautiful flatware and table settings were used, and the service was light-footed, courteous, and professional. We felt we were in a 5-star hotel, not our own backyard (which is where we actually were). Aside from all this, I want to mention how impressed we were with the hard work that was so evident. Chef Mumsie's staff was present from 2pm on toward 11pm and never stopped moving for a second. We were promised that we would not have to worry about a single event during the day and that was exactly what happened. Without even realizing that we had left so much in the hands of our caterers, we passed the night catching up with old friends, connecting people, taking photos, and meeting each other's friends from far off -- never once did we have to stop to check up on any details of any kind. Chef Mumsie seemed to be in eight places at once at any moment, and everything took care of itself as if by magic. There were no hidden charges, unexpected twists, or demands for attention. We are very impressed and grateful for their efforts in feeding and satisfying 80+ people in a somewhat confined space -- done with grace, speed, and invisibility. .. and deliciousness!

I ordered cake pops to supplement the wedding cake that the bride's sister wanted to make herself. From the outset, Sabrina from Millie's Berries & Cakes was very helpful. She let me know the options I had and helped me to stay on budget. She even used popsicle sticks instead of regular lollipop sticks to help keep within the theme of the wedding. The cake pops came out so beautiful! They were navy with cornflower blue swirls and vice versa. They had an elegant little ivory bow too! They were just perfect for the wedding. We ordered four different flavors and each flavor received a rave review. They were delicious and moist and mouth watering and well... I want more. Even though we had a slight scheduling conflict they still delivered the cake pops as requested. The only problem... I didn't order enough because they were gone in a flash!!! Not a single one was left over.

Peter was a D R E A M to work with! We used Weho Sausage & Cathering Co for our recent wedding in Brentwood and we couldn't have been happier. Not only was the food impeccable, but Peter assisted with the complete set up of our event. He is a talented chef and talented party planner. So happy to have found Peter and will be using him again undoubtedly!

One Hot Dish catered my wedding in at Camp Wrightwood and went above and beyond my expectations. We chose their BBQ menu and it was phenomenal. Every guest complimented the food (especially the Texas Egg Rolls and Mac n Cheese). Michelle was amazing as well. She was at the site early, communicated with me frequently and was just such a major blessing. She helped create a low stress environment and handled everything with professionalism and finesse. I would HIGHLY recommend One Hot Dish catering!!!

We asked our friends and family members who had recently been married what they thought the most important part of the wedding was, and they unanimously said "THE FOOD". From the moment we requested a quote Bill's attention to detail made it a wonderful and memorable experience. We were provided with and absolutely delicious lunch at our tasting; where Bill customized our menu to fit our unique wedding theme. The staff was friendly, informative, professional and genuinely warm and kind. Bill's help however moved beyond his fabulous food. For any and EVERY coordination mishap, he was there with creative and inventive solutions. His staff went above and beyond, even assisting in set up and decoration. We were truly overwhelmed by their generosity and their willingness to be of assistance. On our wedding day, as we ran from the car to the venue to avoid the terrible storm; we were greeted by Bill with a mini buffet for the bridal party so that we would have a chance to actually eat at our wedding. To say the food was amazing is an understatement. I cannot describe how delicious it was or how beautifully and artfully arranged. I truly cannot do it justice. When asked, our guest said that hands down, it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Our menu included custom flank steak sliders with asian slaw, a variety of sushi, mini ribs, chicken skewers, grilled vegetable stuffed crepes, procuitto wrapped asparagus, endive spoons filled with tabouleh, chicken sate, and so much more. The service was impeccable and after everything was done, the staff cleaned and left everything immaculate. Most importantly, Bill was sensitive and understanding of our situation. You see , we were two brides. Bill and his staff were shining examples of what it is to treat everyone with equality and dignity and respect. We were afraid of vendors not wanting to work with us and Bill took all that anxiety away. Through his vast network he found amazing and supportive vendors who were ready to celebrate with us and were empowered by our decision to get married. We cannot thank Bill enough for the many kindnesses he bestowed on us and we cannot wait to eat at his amazing restaurant again. - C & A

Fitch's Kitchen catered my wedding at the Wedding Tree in Point Fermin Park in San Pedro, CA. The food was delicious, it was delivered on time, and Fitch was very understanding about a hiccup with my payment method and delivered food anyway, making sure my day wasn't ruined by an oversight (that was my own doing). I had several guests comment on the food and ask where it was from. THANK YOU!!!

Qworks catered our wedding. Everything was perfect. We had our event in the high desert and they were able to get everything to us without a problem. Their entire staff was incredibly friendly. Above all the excellent customer service is the DELICIOUS BBQ. All of our guests raved about the food. The tri tip was cooked to perfection and the cheesy potatoes had people lining up for seconds. They were even able to accommodate our vegetarian guests with some portabello mushroom caps. I cannot recommend them enough.

I feel so lucky to have chosen Chef Nancy Rogers who did a incredible job catering my parents very formal 60 th wedding Aniversary at a Botanical Garden...which is no easy feat. What really was incredible was her insight and perspective which really helped me on many decisions I hadn't even thought of...Nancy was valuable not just for her cooking but her capacity to see what was needed.

Our wedding started a little late and we were very hungry. I'm sure our guests were also. Easton Premier prepared hors' d' oeuvres for our guests for FREE! It kept our guests so happy. The food was excellent as well. We had a plated beef pot roast with a good choice of sides. For the price, it was amazing. They truly impressed us.
