Rocca fixed a great Dinner. The food was delicious which included Fish on a bed of Risotto with a desert that was light. We were completely satisfied by the food but also the overall ease in working with Rocco in setting up the right menu.

Chef Sat was everything we had expected and more! He was very responsive from the moment we were connected through Thumbtack! We had a group of nine girlfriends with a couple different dietary requests that he was more than happy to accommodate! Initially I was a little skeptical booking a chef through a website, so I asked him if I could call and chat with him! He was more than willing to do so and I didn't have any reservations after our conversation! We had him come into the home while we were wine tasting to start preparing our meal...appetizers were ready when we arrived back home! Delicious too! Our salads and main courses were amazing and our kitchen was SPOTLESS! Definitely cleaner than when he arrived! We felt that having a chef come in was a wonderful touch to our trip and Sat was genuine and professional! He comes with my highest recommendation!

Jennine's staff were excellent and very professional. We had a wedding for around 100 people and they seamlessly helped us set up the buffet, kept our tables clean and cleared, and doled out champagne for toasts. Would highly recommend for any event you have in mind!

As a event coordinator I have worked with Steve and the folks at DNL Catering on many special occasions. We have worked together on wedding and baby showers, brunches, wedding receptions, work Christmas parties and anniversary parties. They always provide a menu to your request and the playing of the food is always on beautiful plates and dishes, not aluminum trays. There are always compliments on the foods from the guests. We are always a happy with the selections. Their website makes it easy to browse their menu and I always receive a reply promptly when I submit an event request online. DNL Catering is on my preferred vendor list when I meet with future clients. I have used them in my own home numerous times. They are my 'go to' caterers for any event.

I hosted a 50th birthday dinner at our home last night form my wife and 12 of her close girl friends. Senorita Gourmet Andrea Gray catered a Mexican themed dinner for us and did an outstanding job. The ladies absolutely loved it and my wife could not have been more pleased with her birthday dinner. Thank you Andrea. We interviewed three other private chefs for our dinner before deciding to go with Andrea. She was the most professional, the most responsive, and by far the most creative. Of course we wanted great food (Andrea can deliver that), but we were also looking for something unique and creative, without being stiff and formal. Enter Andrea, with her Mexican themed dinner complete with her own plates, glasses and table decorations. Fun, Festive, and Uniquely Fresh! As for the food and drink. Key highlights were the Raspberry Mojitos, Avocado Soup, Quiche de Calebazita, and Mexican Corn Cake. I highly recommend the Una Senorita Gourmet.

I had a great experience with hiring Kitchenina as our caterers for an event with 40 people. The communication was always prompt, polite and friendly. They did a great job on the day of the event to ensure that the food was delivered on time (despite the traffic/weather conditions) and made my job as the event organizer much easier. I would definitely work with Kitchenina again in the future, and regret that I did not take photos of the food! (Thanks for the brownies as well!)

I hired Grace for a small intimate bday dinner and the food was amazing! My family loved all the dishes and Grace was such a friendly and kind host. She explained what each dish was and gave us all enough time between dishes to really enjoy the food and savor it. The strawberry dessert at the end was my favorite. I really enjoyed my bday dinner. Thanks Grace!

Rose Johnson & her entire crew were fantastic! We hired her for a 50th wedding anniversary party that we were hosting in our backyard for about 50x guests. She's great with communication - she was quick to get us a quote, a sample menu, and walk us through what she would need/suggest for the day of the event. She was very flexible, and easily accommodated my mother-in-law's low sodium diet requirement. Most importantly though, her food was wonderful! Her appetizers were plentiful, and the main course & sides were delicious. I was worried about having dried out food (as we were doing a buffet), but the food was cooked perfectly. She kept me on budget, and really, she went above & beyond what I expected from a caterer! Her staff were friendly with the guests, they helped pour drinks, set up chairs, and left my kitchen clean at the end of the night!! I would recommend her to others in a heartbeat!

I attended a small dinner party that LL Services catered. The dinner was absolutely delicious and healthy at the same time. LL Services were professional and informative about the dishes they presented. Their demeanor was pleasant and easy to be around. They added a nice but subtle touch to the ambience of the evening.

We had a very large action sports event come to San Francisco and I was in charge of hiring and scheduling a caterer. After reaching out to 5-6 different companies, I decided Gimanelli's Catering would be the perfect fit. They were extremely easy to work with and to get ahold of, she was responsive when I requested changes to the menus, and was able to work with my budget. On one day I think we scheduled up to seven meal services in different locations. When the actual event happened we used Gimanelli's for 5 days of back-to-back service. You can't go wrong with them from your large corporate event to a small family get-to-gether - I would definitely use them again in the future.

GREAT SERVICE We got married yesterday and had to post a review immediately because Affordable Chef was so great! Chef Mark was punctual in replying to my questions before the big day, which, as an out-of-town bride, was very reassuring! At the last minute, Chef Mark was unable to attend the reception, but his on-site chef made delicious food, and the staff were phenomenal! There was one staff member in particular who took an interest in my Husband and I. She told us that we were her "celebrities for the day," made sure we ate appetizers before we walked in, escorted us to the buffet first, and was constantly checking on our drinks. She also took an interest in our families, leading many people to tell us how amazing she was! The bartender Chef Mark sent was also lovely, knew her stuff, and made our signature cocktails perfectly! All in all, a great experience and a company we would trust our next big event to!

Honestly some of the best vegan food I've ever had. It really surprised me that I felt satiated after not eating meat, something I'm not used to. Plus the combination of flavors and textures was far beyond anything I've had in plant-based cooking. Really happy we hired Nikolitsa to cook for our dinner party, you could tell there is real passion and joy in what she does. We highly recommend her!

"We recently hired Chef Rhonda for a dinner party I hosted in San Francisco for my husband 40th birthday. To say that Chef Rhonda exceeded our expectations is a complete understatement. Her attention to detail, relaxed and engaging personality, and culinary excellence all contributed to a very memorable evening. And FOOD....yes the FOOD.......amazing, or as Rhonda refers to it, "pretty straightforward." It was anything but straightforward. I knew we were in for a treat when Rhonda showed up at 11am to prepare for a 7pm dinner. Thank you Rhonda for an incredible evening."
