Marcel was amazing! It was a five star experience from the service he offered, to the food he cooked, to the time he took to prep for my event. We had two chefs at my event who were amazed and very impressed with his cooking! I highly recommend him!

The catering staff was amazing and polite. We got one chef, one assistant, one server and one DJ. They arrived on time. Server helped us set up and clean up everything. DJ was great! They did a wonderful job! Price is very reasonable and acceptable. Paid them with extra tips when service is finished. Love the team! Recommend for any events!

The response was quick and efficient so that part I would give 5 stars. The part that I wish was a little more professional was the presentation of the food. We had to ask the chef to describe his food and we had to set our own table, which in the past when we've had personal chefs that was done for us. The halibut was cooked perfectly and we enjoyed our meal very much. The chef was pleasant and you could tell he "loved" what he is doing which is so important. If we ever come back to Terranea we would use the Catering Carnival again.

Marc is fantastic! This is the first time i have used a personal chef and can say its the best choice ive made.. I train gym 4-5 times per week and approached mark to make me 6 meals for 6 days of the week all equally portioned with proteins and carbs. The food was delivered fresh every two days and packed in plastic containers. It was even labelled with the nutritional values. The food itself was restaurant quality! I have eaten out at restaurants alot over the years so was little worried about how the quality of the meat would be and how well it would be cooked. Marc uses the freshest ingredients and cooks the products to perfections! I would highly recommend mark wether its a small dinner gathering or something more serious like myself with 36 meals per week! Thanks Marc

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.

Pam and her food was absolutely wonderful!!! We had a few people we could have used and am so glad we chose Pam for my in-laws 50th anniversary. My husband and I have had chefs before in our home before, but no one even compares to Pam and her food. Thank you Pam for a wonderful evening and the memory of the night will be forever!!!!

I hired Sierra Madre Catering for my husband's 40th birthday party held at my home. The set up process was so easy, they were so accommodating with the menu I wanted (even though it included fried foods and philly cheese steak sandwiches which are hard to make on-site). The moment they got to my house, Tonya and her chefs were so professional, speedy, on top of it all! They made my night so much easier and fun and I finally got to enjoy my own party for once! They left my house very neat like my kitchen was never used! They picked up after my guests throughout the night. My favorites were inside-out Philly cheese steak, pulled pork sliders, mac & cheese, potstickers and garlic fries. Thank you and looking forward to seeing you again!

So Devine Catering catered an engagement party for my daughter. I can't say enough how awesome they are. I had never hired a caterer before and was a bit out of my element. Chef Alexa was super cool and kind enough to walk me through the process, meet with me and really did an outstanding job. Chef Alexa and her entire team are just awesome. Everyone at our party was impressed. Just can't say enough great things!

I truly enjoyed working with Amy. I had never hired a private chef for an event before so was nervous about quality and professionalism but I couldn't have made a better choice than Amy! She was super-responsive and pro-active with ideas and suggestions. We had a pretty hard-to-please group and everyone commented how wonderful everything tasted and especially how nice it was to not have to slave over the meal in the kitchen. Amy's pricing is also very fair and open to working with various budget ranges. There is no doubt I (and the dinner guests) will be contacting Amy in the future! Look no further than Amy...she's the best!

I have hired Daneen for my annual bday party dinner party in addition to many other special social functions I have put on and she embodies every attribute associated with what you find in a top notch professional chef. She is punctual, detailed and meticulous in her delivery, and extremely organized with the execution of the entire dinner. When you work with her, her delightful and charming personality wins you over in seconds and she shows you how much effort, commitment and desire she puts forth to make your dinner party a huge success. She cares about her work as if she was cooking for her own family. As for her actual cuisine, one of the most underrated and undiscovered culinary gems we have here in our city. I have told her countless times that if she ever needs a willing tongue to taste anything she is experimenting with, count me in! I consider myself to be a snobby foodie with a demanding palate and even when " whips up a little something" I am on cloud nine and demanding that any and all leftovers are mine to keep. She genuinely loves to cook and you can really taste all the love she puts into her work. For anyone reading this review, do yourself a favor and treat yourself to her culinary magic and you too will soon be more than excited to write a review like this one for her.

We had such a fabulous time at Chef David Gussin's pop up dinner. There was the perfect mix of beautiful ambience, great music, friendly people, and of course the incredible four course meal, which was acommpanied with Chef David's signature complimentary craft cocktails. Cannot wait to attend his next pop up dinner!!

Chef Lofthouse is incredible. He catered my 26th birthday party and fed 32 famished twenty somethings. Everything was amazing from the stuffed mushrooms to the bbq sliders! He was prompt, responsive and immensely attentive. I never saw an empty tray the entire night. This allowed me to relax and enjoy the party because I knew that he was 100% on top of it. We all know how hard it is to let go when you're hosting a party because you want everything to be great and your guests to be happy. I don't think I've ever had a party run as smoothly as this one and Chef Lofthouse was a big part of that. I will not only be hiring him again but I've already referred him to all my friends and clients. Thank you for a great night Chef!

Chad was very pleasant from the start. His home was very inviting, clean, and safe. He gave me a debrief on his experiences and specialties. His background in Kinesiology works in his favor, he is very aware of the anatomy, and knows exactly how to target the pressure points, properly. The mood was set, and he use an adequate amount of oil (I dislike for a masseur to use too much), and he was conversational and kind the entire time. Additionally, his height worked in his favor, as well, because he is able to move fluidly and adequately apply his body weight to maximize the massage experience. I left feeling light, loose, and less stress. Lastly, Chad also took the time to educate me on the muscles groups and small parts of the body/muscles that I was not aware of. Overall, great experience and I will return for another great session.

Greg was everything I could have wanted in a personal dining chef! Such a warm personality, professional yet personal, and off the chart food. I could go on and on about the food combinations, the incredible taste, and presentation of a five star meal, made with love. You will not be disappointed with Greg: hands down, a one of a kind experience:))

I regularly hire Chef Leo and Christina to do events at the clubhouse and for our regular summer BBQ. The reason I hire them is because their food is soooo good. We have had other catering companies do the events in past years, but there is nobody that gets the food RIGHT ON(!) like these guys. Somehow, they manage to delight us with incredible food every time they do a catering. They do the entire event and they do it well, but its the food that makes them stand out. Thanks Christina and Chef Leo!

Wendell catered a private event, for a group of all vegan / plant based guests. The food was phenomenal and some of the best plant based food I've had. There was a large variety of flavors and dishes - greens, tempeh, tofu, seitan, tons of veggies, quinoa and more. The variety of food was so good, I am looking to bring him as a private chef for a series of wellness retreats.

Going with Darrell as my personal chef has been a gamechanger. Everything starts with what you put in your body and since hiring him to prepare meals for me, I've been eating healthy consistently, looking better and feeling better and more energized overall. I love the variety of his menus as well as his use of healthy ingredients and meticulous choice of produce and meats. Whenever I'm washing the dishes afterwards, there's never anything congealed or greasy. The meals are paired together in an expert fashion. I've been recommending Darrell to all my friends and would give more than 5 stars if possible. Best decision I've made!

From the day I decided to hire Chef James and his team to the day I got married, Onedia's Cuisine took control and provided the absolute best service and the tastiest food ever! They are so amazing to work with I recommend them for any event from intimate to 1,000 people! I had 200 guests at my wedding and every single person fell in love with not only the food but with Chef James and his wife Kim! They stayed all night and even fried up some snacks towards the end and danced around with a tray in his hand passing out food to or guests on the dance floor that was definitely one of the highlights of our wedding! The setup and layout he provided was also beautiful and extremely efficient. My day couldn't have gone any better. Onedia's Cuisine will be my go to caterer for every event in not only my future but a lot of my family's who attended our event! Thank you Chef James and all of you who helped cook and serve at my wedding. I love you all!
