Clubhouse Cuisine made our 10 year vow renewal party a total success! The food was beyond amazing. I feel so fortunate to have found Faisal. I am in the wedding industry and eat a lot of catered food. I have never had any that compared to Clubhouse's. I had almost every guest come up to me to compliment how incredibly good the food was from the hors d'oeuvres to the dessert. We had some serious "foodies" that are extremely picky about good cuisine, and they wanted to know how they could hire Clubhouse Cuisine for their next party. I just bumped into someone from the party four days later, and they are still talking about the food. Besides the food, Faisal was great to work with. He helped me design an amazing menu and was very patient and helpful with any questions I had. I would not hesitate for a minute to recommend Clubhouse Cuisine. Faisal made a very special day for me and my husband even more memorable with the great cuisine.

I had the pleasure to experience the food and service of KMR Gourmet Catering in different occasions. The service and quality of their meals are first class. It really does not matter if the event is private, corporate, public and/or family parties. Kenia is an awesome host, paying always close attention to the smallest details and presentation. On another hand the delicious, healthy and good looking creations of Chef Rivas makes it always special and tasty. Thank you for the good food and memories!

Where do i even start with Rodger and his team. They were just amazing. They were on time food was served on time maybe even sooner then we had asked. And they were absolutely amazing. We had about 200 people at the wedding and seriously everyone that saw me (the bride) and my husband said the food was just amazing and seriously everyone went back for 2nds. We also ended up doing our bartenders with his company and at one point we ran out of coke for our drinks and Rodger left to go get more drinks for us. Omg now that is excellent above and beyond customer service...i cant thank him and his team for making our wedding the most amazing wedding. We couldnt have asked for more. I would recommend him over and over for what he has done. Rodger, dennis and i are so thankful for you and your team. We love you guys

Kevin and Armida are a such a delight to work with from our first meeting to our last. They were very professional and super accommodating and honestly we couldn't have picked a better caterer. Besides their superior service the food was absolutely AMAZING! They catered our wedding of 40 people and drove all the way from San Diego to Laguna beach for our special day which to me personally says they go the distance to please. You simply can not go wrong with the mango chicken and iron steak with peppercorn sauce not to mention the roasted rosemary red potatoes which are my favorite! Excellence catering thank you once again for your experience and Scrumptious meal!

Diana catered a wedding brunch for 75 guests at our home this past May. From start to finish everything was perfection. Diana and her staff were professional yet approachable. Everyone commented on the food and the beautiful presentation. The best part, was that I was able to spend all my time with my guests and not worry about a thing. Even the clean-up was spectacular: Diana rearranged my refrigerator by food group and included all the delicious leftovers. I would not hesitate to use Dining with Di again and wholeheartedly recommend her to others.

We had a private wedding and dinner with our immediate family. Josie coordinated cocktails, dinner, dessert and so much more. She made sure everything and everyone was taken care of so I didn't have to worry at all! Worth every penny and then some!

I was lucky enough to try her amazing food at a fabulous Hollywood Party recently and I must say, I was impressed. I worked as a food consultant for the Royal Family of Abu Dhabi (Al Nahyan Palaces) and was able to consult with some of the finest chefs in the world, I do think Denise Caplan is an exquisite chef and I would definitely recommend her to anyone hosting a fabulous event filled with Celebrities and Royal guests. I think she should have her own reality TV show, she was able to do her work and look fabulous at the same time. A woman that didn't let the heat in the kitchen get to her. Now that's Talent! Bravo Chef Denise

Jenny catered my Wedding shower and did a beautiful job. She sent me menu selections and worked around everyone's allergies, likes, and dislikes. The way she designed the table and plated the dishes was spectacular. Every detail was very well thought out. I highly recommend Jenny. Her dishes are delicious!

Mai, and her dedicated crew at Mai's Aloha Cafe, provided us with wonderful, full service experience, when they catered our island inspired wedding in August of 2014. Thank you for making our event so special. We highly recommend them and their delicious, well prepared meals. Make sure to ask them about their vegetarian options, you won't be disappointed.

Nikki at HEATculinary is with you all the way through your event. She develops more than a client/ vendor relationship. And her food is amazing!! She did the catering for our rehearsal dinner and wedding and we could not be happier. The staff was amazing and Nikki knows how to put on a good event. I could not be happier with the entire experience of working with Nikki and HEAT for my wedding...I only wish I could do it again!
