We gave a big 40th birthday party for our son and wanted everything to be fantastic for him, our family, and all of our friends. We didn't know what a perfect choice we made when we hired Chef Marcel! We cannot say enough good things about Chef Marcel, his staff, and his wonderful food! The dishes were delicious - inventive and perfectly prepared! To add an extra challenge, Chef Marcel and his top notch sous chefs needed to cook in our kitchen and take food to our community room where we were holding the event. Every single step of the process was flawless and at the end of the evening I would have never known anyone had been in my kitchen! I had a recipe for the bartender I wanted to serve. She tweaked it and made it even tastier! Our guests wrote us the next day and raved about the appetizers, the meal, the yummy desserts, and the service, which was impeccable. The staff was friendly, kind, fun, and terrific at what they do. As most people know who give parties, the personalities of those who provide the service is critical. Every single person who took care of us was absolutely lovely. Chef Marcel was there the whole time. He was constantly vigilant making sure everything was running smoothly. He went out of his way to accommodate some hungry late arrivals. He was definitely in charge, respectful of his staff, gracious, flexible, and devoted to us having a great time! Our experience with Chef Marcel exceeded any expectations we could have possibly had. A million thank yous to him and to his stellar staff!

I don't even know where to begin! Jose is an amazing caterer and I am so happy we hired him for our wedding this past Friday. When we were first tasting caterers food they all seemed metiocre but Joses was amazing! We hired him on the spot! Not to mention he was the most reasonable price! Then everyone was making me nervous saying that catered food is never as good when they have too cool it in large quantities (we had 180 people). When we got to the reception everyone was already eating appetizers and happy. When Jose spotted my husband and I he came up to us and told us he had made us each an appetizer plate and if we wanted it. Then he came up to me to make sure I wanted dinner served when I had originally asked. I did and he brought us the first 2 plates. The food was amazing! Just as good as I remember! Everyone was so pleased and kept talking about how the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding! That was exactly what I wanted! His bartender was amazing and all his staff was so friendly. The setup looked nice and professional. The drinks he brought were great and everyone was talking about how great the mint water was! Then I ordered cheeseburger sliders and French fries to be served late night and they were amazing! He even brought wings and everyone was so excited! They went fast and by the time I got over there everything was gone. Jose told me let me get your plates and pulled out two foil covered plates. He always thought of us first and without him I wouldn't have eaten. All day everything had hiccups and my rentals were late, everything was slightly wrong except Jose! He really came through and went above and beyond. I will definitely hire him again for any events and recommend him to the fullest!

I needed a caterer for my dad's funeral reception. Spoke to other caterers but Carolina of Gourmet Lover's Catering was the only one who gave her condolences, this meant a lot to me. The full service presentation was tasteful, the food delicious and reasonably priced. There were no exta added on fees like the other caterers. I highly recommend Gourmet Lover's Catering, Boris & Carolina are a wonderful team and you will not be disappointed.

We live in Laguna Niguel, and Madkins Catering was on time and I remember saying to the waitstaff, "omg, there's still more food?! Needless to say there was so much food. Madkins Catering was upfront with me in the very beginning explaining how much of each appetizer or food item I'd actually be getting which is great. I think we adjusted the amounts a few times because I thought it was going to be too much food lol, and it ended up being still too much food.... But who's complaining? :-) My guests were very pleased with the meal and left on a very very full stomach. This company is very nice and professional and delivered exactly what I wanted. I forgot to do a review at the time of the event, but the event was about 2 weeks ago. Everyone please try them, the food is delicious and at a great price!

My favorite will always be the Frito taco! Every ingredient in there is so super fresh and I instantly was addicted!! Then I get a deep-fried Oreo for dessert and it is always fried to perfection with flavors that melted in your mouth! I devoured the Caesar wrap twice and it too Is suoer fresh with an amazing dressing! Totally satisfying on a hot summer day!! I love that they're always trying new foods and introducing them as specials! YUMMY!! The staff is friendly, food is GREAT and the truck is a lot of fun to follow around the streets of LA :)

My boyfriend scheduled a dinner with Susan from Wild Thyme Catering for my birthday. Two days before the dinner, we had a situation where we had to cancel our reservations out and eat in. Luckily we picked a night when Susan's plans changed and she was available. She amazed us by pulling it all together quickly and meeting all my strict dietary needs. We had a fabulous experience with Susan! She brought a beautiful flower arrangement that she had created and some colorful balloons. She made the table look lovely! The food she made was delicious! She arrived on time and made everything seem to simple. It was an incredible 6 course meal, plus dessert. Susan is very creative and a joy to work with. We will definitely be working with her again for future events. P.S. My boyfriend says she is reasonable.

The experience was incredible. I needed a professional chef at late notice in San Clemente and he helped complete the menu with me under my budget and have spectacular food. I had at least two of everything (sides, entrees, and dessert). I could not have had a better food setup overlooking the beach in San Clemente.

Chef Mumsie and team are the best caterers I have ever worked with...everyone at the event raved about the food...staff was professional and efficient. Chef Renee presented the food and we all began to immediately drool over her signature items. She created unique flavors and items that we had never seen before and couldn't wait to try. OOOHHHHH and when we did!! I can't recall when i've tasted things that just made me want to close my eyes and dance... MMMMMM Mmmmm mmmmm. They took care of everything with magnificent precision. Arrived early, set it all up without a word and fed 80 picky ladies to perfection. The price was very reasonable...you cannot get this caliber of service excellence for this price anywhere. They even helped me select the venue based on what I was looking for since they were familiar with all the best sites. The venue needed no Insurance documentation because of their great experiences in working with Chef Mumsie and her team. If I could I would give them 7 stars and it still would not be enough!!!! If you want OUTSTANDING food and FABULOUS customer service then you're here. . . they will take care of everything without missing a beat and leave you and your guests with very happy palates with delicious food. THANK YOU ladies for the BEST High-Tea we've ever had!!!! We wil definitely be hiring again for our needs !!! Kisses

I decided to look for a caterer for my Mom's celebration of life and my internet search lead me to Thumbtack. After inputting my needs I quickly received a response back from Tonya at Sierra Madre Catering with a detailed quote and attached menu. When I called to speak with Tonya I immediately got a good vibe from her voice. She seemed excited and eager to help plan our event and made me feel comfortable that everything would be taken care of. I am so thankful I decided to use Sierra Madre for my event. We ordered appetizers and desserts and they arrived and set everything up, brought their own trash cans and kept the tables clean as people were done eating. The staff was professional and nice and their food was DELICIOUS! Many of our guests gave feedback that the food was great and they even ran out of business cards because a lot of people were interested in having their info. At such a difficult time with the passing of a loved one, these details are important but not ones you want to worry about yourselves and Tonya and Sierra Madre staff took that burden off my shoulders and I am so thankful for that. I will recommend them to anyone in need of a caterer for any event and if I could give more than 5 stars I most definitely would!! Thank you Tonya and Sierra Madre Catering!!

We had a birthday party with over 130 people this weekend and Aioli Catering knocked it out of the park! Food was delicious and there was plenty of it! Jordan was very responsive and professional. They showed up right on time and delivered a great meal at a great price. They followed up with us to make sure everything went well! I would highly recommend Jordan and Aioli catering for your special event!

Chef Travis was awesome!! He completely made our Girls Night In a success. He was extremely courteous and professional and the meal was top notch. He did a tapas style taste of Italy theme with all fresh ingredients. He even made the marinara from scratch. Little Italian grandmas everywhere would have been proud. The best part (even though it was all pretty amazing) was the dessert. Chef made a chocolate cherry tart that put us girls over the top. He even taught us how to make it ourselves! I can't thank him enough for the wonderful experience. I will definitely rehire him on any future visits to Vegas!

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.

Steven catered a flawless dinner this past Memorial Day for my brother’s bachelor party – it was truly a highlight of the weekend! From the beginning, I noticed Steven’s response time was not only incredibly fast, but also extremely receptive to our dietary preferences and general desires for the evening. After carefully designing the perfect menu, Steven meticulously sources his fresh, organic ingredients from local farmer’s markets; Admittedly I am annoyingly choosy when it comes to sourcing foods, and can safely say few restaurants match the quality that Steven brings to the table. Steven was happy to accommodate our group with an indoor/outdoor service so that the guests could take advantage of the property’s pool and firepit as well as the views from the main dining area. The total service must have spanned 3 hours, first bites to dessert, but the time really flies when you’re able to thoroughly enjoy the company of your guests and avoid the distractions and chaos of a typical LA restaurant. To top it all off, Steven’s staff left the kitchen spotless, and even prepared individual “meal-prep” boxes with the leftovers for all of our guests. Steven and his crew really treat you like royalty. Aside from humoring some of the group’s silly behavior and taking some phenomenal group pictures at sunset, you would hardly know the staff is there. I seriously recommend inquiring about Steven’s services for those who can appreciate a meal cooked with passion, need to make a special event memorable, or just want to have a care-free dining experience in the comforts and privacy of their own home.

Oh, LexiLou really made our dreams come true! We worked with them for a few months...planning out all the special details for our wedding. They made us custom signs on freshly stained wood. Our dessert table was gorgeous with classy displays and crates. Our linens and napkins were perfect. They listened to all of our preferences and our wedding felt like a truly magical event. Thank you LexiLou for being such a blessings to us on our special day.

Catering made easy. Tuition Bites offers appetizers, entrees, and desserts all made by them. No reheated food or prepackaged desserts. You can tell the quality of the food is more of a homemade cooked meal. That alone made me fall in love. Their staff was really friendly and I look forward to planning another event with them serving us their great food.

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.
