On 12-17-15, the Employees' Union of the State Bar of California hired Chef Marcel for our Holiday Luncheon. Chef Marcel and his staff came on time, set up quickly, and were very professional. The food was delicious and they were able to serve over 100 employees in less than an hour, and clean up and pack up quickly. Our luncheon was a huge success! I have received nothing but positive comments from my Union members. I highly recommend Chef Marcel and we will definitely use his services again! Thank you, Lita Abella, President Employees' Union of the State Bar of California

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.

Radish & Rose did the catering for my wedding at Sunstone Villa and I cannot recommend them enough! If they are free for your wedding or event, just book them, you really can't go wrong. I wanted EVERYTHING from their menu at the wedding. We got a lot of compliments about the food from our guests!!! The food is innovative, fresh, and just executed so well. On top of that, their staff was AMAZING. They had a service captain that coordinated everything so every table got food at the same time, wine glasses were not left empty, and extra food was brought out promptly when needed. We also used their bartenders who were also excellent. Their cocktail list is very extensive and the ones we chose as our signature cocktails were huge hits. They make a solid old fashioned by the way, which is a testament to how seriously they take their cocktails.

I loved working with Susan Kowalski from Wild Thyme Catering. She was professional, helpful, positive, and personable. At the last minute, I decided to throw my husband a surprise birthday dinner for 8 people. I wanted to try something new and have a chef prepare dinner in our home. Susan was able to work with the short time frame and within our budget. She listened to what I said my husband would like and helped me put together a fabulous menu. The food was outstanding and exactly what we talked about. Everyone had a great meal and an awesome time. I definitely recommend Susan, and hope to have her back sometime in the near future.

Jordan is an excellent chef and caterer. He produces food that is way beyond the standard catering services. If you want cookie cutter catering go with someone else. If you want really great food at a great price stop on by or use his catering.

Big Mann BBQ did an excellent job catering our daughter's 8th birthday party! Roger was responsive and easy to communicate with. He and his team showed up on time with their cool BBQ rig, then flawlessly prepared and served a delicious meal while happily interacting with the guests. Everyone loved the food and the service! Overall they delivered a quality product for a reasonable price. I would definitely recommend hiring Big Mann BBQ and look forward to working with them again. Sincerely, Brian Massie

Chef Don and his team made my event extremely successful. Don was so easy to communicate with, and was very flexible and accommodating. He offered his suggestions and ideas when needed and made sure the entire evening went smoothly. His team was professional and friendly. I couldn't have asked for more. And the food? Amazing! We all loved everything and the report from these picky teenagers was a huge thumbs up! I will definitely contact this catering company for my next big event!

I have used this catering company before and it's always a hit. Ms.Franklyn is always on time and is very professional. She was able to accommodate to a food allergy for my party and no one noticed the difference because nothing lacked flavor. I always get so many compliments when I use G Thymes. Quality of the ingredients is always best and she makes sure we get good value. I higly recommend her services.

Heather is dedicated to her new one woman catering business! She had catered a friends party with appetizers and it was a great success; we loved her food and would recommend her to others! She came by my house with samples and we went over the menus. It’s nice to work with someone one on one you know. p.s. I really recommend her Savory Artichoke Heart Caramelized Onion Italian Cheese Quiche!
