Marcel was EXCELLENT! I had an unusual catering job, one he hadn't done before. He was terrific at following up with me, patient when I had to delay getting back to him, and took care to understand exactly what I needed. And then he carried it out to the letter, with perfect results. And he's super easy to work with. By sheer coincidence, one of my event attendees had used his catering services just a couple of months before, and also had only glowing reviews of his food and his service. If you have need for catering or chef services, you can't go wrong by hiring Marcel for the job. I can't wait to use him again!

I hired Gourmet Lovers Catering for my parent's 40th anniversary party. I had them do the dinner and the cake for 100 people. Everything went very smoothly and it was very easy to work with them. Most importantly, the food got very high remarks from the guests. Because of the stress, I couldn't eat more than a few bites that day, but even the left overs the next day were great! If there is another event that I need catered in the future, I will definitely be giving them a call again.

Even though we couldn't do our event due to a scheduling conflict, Susan was extremely gracious and had a creative menu picked out. I will definitely reach out to Wild Thyme Catering in the future!

In the past five years my husband and I have attended several fantastic entertainment and charitable fundraisers produce by The Mark Kearney Group. Our memorable highlights include The Jewel's of France in Beverly Hills for Juvenile Arthritis hosted by Teri Hatcher , MKG Emmy suite for breast cancer hosted by Adrienne Malouff, Project Angel Food hosted by Lisa Vanderpump. I hired Chef Mark and his fabulous catering company for our wedding this April in Newport Coast California. We absolutely adore his five star Pacific Rim cuisine. The catering crew was professional, kind and captivating. It truly made our Wedding Day special.

Ms. Johnson did an amazing job catering my event, hosted at St. Vincent de Paul, Council of Los Angeles Thrift Store for the SDSA General Membership Meeting, of 100 people with a buffet, drinks, hors d'oeuvre, and recyclable cutlery. Ms. Johnson helped me determine the best menu for my clients and type of event to make specific to my needs and all within my budget! Her staff was friendly, helpful, and self sufficient. I highly recommend Super Food for Super People for your next corporate event!

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!

Alexis and her crew were beyond words. I gave a memorial for my mother. The house is small, the day was wickedly hot; the party was inside and outside. There were lots of little old ladies who needed special care. I did not even have to ask. They took such precious care of my guests I was moved to tears. The service was impeccable ( and I am retired from 20 years in the high end dining world, so I do not say that lightly.) And they left the kitchen cleaner than they found it. I cannot recommend So Divine Catering and Alexis Kemp strongly enough.

Hiring Steven and his phenomenal crew was the best decision we could have made for our event! We were tremendously impressed by Steven's professionalism and flexibility to all of our requests, he is an incredibly smart and resourceful businessman and was able accommodate our many brand-standards (for a very attractive price) and wow our guests with the results. The food was simply delicious, the service was exceptional (very warm and affable) and the set up/breakdown was seamless even in our small half kitchen and office space! If you're looking to work with a professional and provide a seamless catering service at your next event, I urge you to hire Steven!!

I have been enjoying the amazing culinary creations of Ms. Van Peebles for several years now. She's catered several dinner parties and also provided amazing Bowl Box treats for concerts at the Hollywood Bowl. Focus on health conscious (I dream of the cauliflower soup), but mouth watering tasty treats!

Work quality - phenomenal Professionalism - fantastic Responsiveness - Joanna couldn't have been more responsive if she tried. Value- heck yes! Do you know how pricey mobile bartending and catering vendors can be in LA? This company is a steal considering the amount of collaboration and quality of service your receive. Punctuality - On time, super fast in setting up, even faster tearing down. I highly recommend this vendor. I planned an entire event from another state and Joanna made me feel like I had nothing to worry about on her end. Will work with her again for sure.

Lindsay and her staff did an amazing job catering my fiancé’s birthday party! Everything looked absolutely beautiful and they put so much detail into all of it too! They did everything from set up and clean up. I would definitely reccomend hiring her for any event that you have. She is more than willing to work with you and is very flexible with food choices :)

Food First Events & Catering Co. recently did two events for my company and the feedback was amazing! The food was stepped up in such a way that the impact was noticeable. The breakfast spreads that were delivered on time and set up impeccably were delicious with a few notable homemade pastry items that left people talking! I experienced nothing but professionalism, reliability and class from this experience. Also, working with David to make sure I met my budget was extremely easy and he was eager to help meet my needs without compromising quality. I highly recommend!

We have used Chef Mikey for both meal prep and catering. He is truly a gem. The meals he has prepped are flavorful, good variety and perfectly portioned. The last party Chef Mikey catered for us, he made jerk chicken wings that people couldn’t stop talking about. I’m craving them right now! I would highly recommend him for meal prep, private dinner parties or catering!
