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!

Very thankful and we fell in love the fact we can customize our menu!! That was music to our ears to a foodie couple like us!! Our menu was an around-the-world theme. We picked fresh, colorful, tasty, and bold flavors and dishes that we love. We opted for buffet style since that gave us more food options and it fit within our budget. I was hesitant with this because I am not a big fan of buffet presented in huge metal containers--it just looks too casual for me. But Monica convinced me that R&R will have the table beautifully styled with food signage and dishes served in copper metal so it would give it a more shabby chic look which I loved so I was sold! The catering staff totally listened to our modifications during the food tasting and was pleasant to work with. I loved the fact that they are very progressive in their approach to food incorporating many techniques and varied flavors!  I was so glad they didn't have the standard, run-of-the-mill wedding menu where your only options were Menu A, Menu B, and Menu C. Their food was so unique and tasty!! It's like one of those cool dishes you would see on cooking shows like Top Chef or Food Network. They give you a detailed questionnaire about food likes/dislikes, flavor profiles, and restaurants you like to frequent.  From that they work their magic and give you a very delectable menu catered to your taste buds.  HOW AWESOME IS THAT!!!! Here's our menu.  At our wedding there was a smorgasbord of appetizers: *Braised short ribs on brioche crostini with buttermilk mash and crispy roquefort cheese *Potato cake with duck confit and sour cherry compote *Sweet potato and mango samosa with curried tamarind dip *Roasted tomato soup shooter topped with basil oil & served with mini triangle grilled cheese sandwiches *Sashimi tuna on crispy cilantro scented rice cake with avocado topped with scallion and pickled ginger *Steamed lobster & crab dumplings with piquillo pepper salsa and chili oil *Potato crusted scallops over braised leeks with shiitake marmalade For entrees we had seafood and chicken paella over saffron rice, marinated skirt steak with chimichurri sauce, and butternut squash ravioli with brown butter.  Accompanying salad and sides included Farmers market chopped salad, green papaya salad, haricot vert with almonds & brown butter, and caramelized Brussels sprouts with bacon and balsamic glaze. Everything was mouthwatering goodness!!!!   Needless to say our guests raved about the food! We had an amazing time at a gorgeous venue with hands down delicious food created by a very talented staff! Kudos!

We used Zen Craft for catering services for a corporate lunch. The variety of healthy, veg-friendly, seasonal options were the reason I chose them. A decision which I'm glad I took! The honey chipotle glazed salmon were the HUGE hit I was hoping it would be. My coworkers were raving about the short ribs, and I was thrilled with the simple tomato pasta. Im half Italian and am pretty picky about pasta- I figured I'd like these okaaay, but was pleasantly surprised to find that the pasta was Perfect! Even the salad was great- fresh ingredients with a tasty meyer lemon vinaigrette. The risotto was exactly what I was expecting rich mushroom flavored a creamy risotto, the flavor was solid. And here I am at desserts... All were Delicious (brownies/blondies/choc chip sea salt cookies)- but the butterscotch budino... You guys... Ohhh. Mannn. It was the first thing I thought about when I woke up this morning and I immediately had one of the leftovers for breakfast. The rosemary crumble was such a subtle complement to the butterscotch. Unusual and really lovely. 10/10- would eat daily ;) Last little thing, which is often overlooked, but adds so much when done nicely- the presentation. Setting up delivered food in a meeting room isn't optimal for an appealing display. But I've gotta say, Zen Craft clearly put thought into even these small details. The packaging made it look more high end than typical food delivery, and the kraft paper colored sticker with their cute elephant logo labels were both attractive and clever. To top it all off, the desserts were artistically sprinkled with and arranged amongst edible flowers. What an appreciated surprise that was! Not only was the food beautiful to look at, but the edible flowers on the budino were an enjoyable teeny tiny textural pop. Least exciting detail, but important! Delivery was right on time and the driver was efficient and polite with the set up. So pleased!

Radish and Rose catered for my wedding on super short notice. The communication was easy, they assisted me with picking a fantastic menu and helped calm me down from the disaster of my previous caterer. The food was amazing the staff were on point and I couldn’t have asked for more. I would recommend them to anyone considering catering and event services and I will certainly hire them again!

The memorial event isn't for another two weeks, but the planning has been amazing so far! Delores has spent many hours with me over the past couple weeks figuring out the specific menu that I wanted and the chef has been extremely accommodating with some food items that aren't even on their menu! They have gone above and beyond in making sure I get exactly what I want in order to honor my Dad's New Orleans/Mardi Gras themed Celebration of Life service. Delores even woke up one night from having a great inspiration on a fabulous idea to honor my dad, which I loved and never would have thought of doing! Her creativity, as well as her patience and kindness throughout this process, especially due to the size of having approximately 150 people, has made this difficult time much easier -and fun! - for me. :) Not only has Delores made this easy, she's also been extremely generous with little extras and big discounts! I'm really excited to see how everything turns out for my family and friends' special day honoring my father!! Seeing how smoothly things have gone so far, and the fact that they've made a huge effort in catering to all of my specific needs, I have no doubt that they'll make our special day perfect! :) Thank you Madkins Catering!

I had my birthday party up in Boulder, and Madkins catering was kind enough to travel there and provided enough food for 30 people, and was able to make substitutions for vegan options. Everything turned out to be delicious and was enjoyed by all. So glad they got in touch with me. We had plenty of delicious leftovers, too!

My boyfriend scheduled a dinner with Susan from Wild Thyme Catering for my birthday. Two days before the dinner, we had a situation where we had to cancel our reservations out and eat in. Luckily we picked a night when Susan's plans changed and she was available. She amazed us by pulling it all together quickly and meeting all my strict dietary needs. We had a fabulous experience with Susan! She brought a beautiful flower arrangement that she had created and some colorful balloons. She made the table look lovely! The food she made was delicious! She arrived on time and made everything seem to simple. It was an incredible 6 course meal, plus dessert. Susan is very creative and a joy to work with. We will definitely be working with her again for future events. P.S. My boyfriend says she is reasonable.

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.

Having driven about 2 hours from the high desert to Huntington Beach and not having to worry about how to feed all the families we invited for our "company beach day off" made our day even greater. Lessons about vendor permits learned and so I know that in the future we can count on Catering Carnival for these events.

I decided to look for a caterer for my Mom's celebration of life and my internet search lead me to Thumbtack. After inputting my needs I quickly received a response back from Tonya at Sierra Madre Catering with a detailed quote and attached menu. When I called to speak with Tonya I immediately got a good vibe from her voice. She seemed excited and eager to help plan our event and made me feel comfortable that everything would be taken care of. I am so thankful I decided to use Sierra Madre for my event. We ordered appetizers and desserts and they arrived and set everything up, brought their own trash cans and kept the tables clean as people were done eating. The staff was professional and nice and their food was DELICIOUS! Many of our guests gave feedback that the food was great and they even ran out of business cards because a lot of people were interested in having their info. At such a difficult time with the passing of a loved one, these details are important but not ones you want to worry about yourselves and Tonya and Sierra Madre staff took that burden off my shoulders and I am so thankful for that. I will recommend them to anyone in need of a caterer for any event and if I could give more than 5 stars I most definitely would!! Thank you Tonya and Sierra Madre Catering!!

We highly recommend Chef Alexis and her wonderful team for your next event. We had been having difficulty trying to find a caterer who not only understood our needs for the event, but also was able to accommodate our last minute booking. Chef Alexis was more than accommodating with so many last minutes changes (menu, setup, guest count, staffing needs), always available to speak to be sure she and I were on the same page. She even went out of her way to hire additional staff to fit our “esthetic” for the event. Day of the event, Chef Alexis and her team went above and beyond to be sure everything ran smoothly. She was too able to work with our limited space to create a beautiful and delicious catering for our event. Thank you, Chef Alexis, for all your incredible help!!

Alexis was amazing form start to finish! I was giving a last minute birthday party for my husband and 4 other friends. I had a theme in mind and a budget to work with for about 20 people. Alexis came up with great suggestions for my theme and stayed right on budget. She delivered, prepared and set up everything for me and all with grace and charm. The food was way beyond the quality I expected. I clearly got more than I paid for too. I highly recommend her custom catering services and will definitely call on her again when the need arrises.

I truly couldn't have imagined a better catering experience than West Hollywood Sausage Co. and Peter. He catered my boyfriends 30th birthday at our place and made it such a special event. First of all, his food was phenomenal. Everything from his appetizers (we got the pulled pork sliders and brie and grape quesadillas) and all of the entree dishes were incredible. People were finding me all night to ask about the catering because it was so delicious. Ive found myself craving it since. But even beyond that, he added so much to the party from how he catered it. He passed appetizers over drinks, and for dinner kept replenishing the buffet with warm and delicious food straight off of the grill. He couldn't have been more of a pleasure to work with - he made everything in planning the party very easy. On the night of, he arrived early and not only set up his grill and everything for the food, but helped me with the our rented tables and chairs and other aspects of setting up the party. I felt so at ease with his help. If you're looking for a caterer, I don't think you could do any better than Peter and West Hollywood Sausage Co. I will definitely hire them for all other events I have from here on out.

Dana Rolland is by far one of the greatest caterers, culinary designer and consummate private dining professionals you'll come across. Without a doubt, the value provided by Dana and her spectacular team was immeasurable. The food, the service-level by the server, bar tender, chef, and of course, Dana herself: all top-notch. My annual event was scheduled for 4pm (way too early- go for 6pm or later for a Sat eve in December) and never have I felt like I can retreat from the common/party areas to get ready, shower, get dressed any earlier than 15 minutes before guests arrive due to last minute prep, but Dana took the reigns; She knew where and what details to fine-tune, and gave me the peace of mind to know my home, the food, and all preparations would be handled. If you're looking for the "go above and beyond to service the client" attitude- pick, Dana. The staff was clean, respectful, accomodating for guests and very well-spoken. Outside of service-level, Dana's rates are beyond fair. Look no further for event and catering service. We host this same event on an annual basis, among others and plan to hire Dana again and again. Simply: I can't express how much I appreciate Dana and her staff for delivering a five-star event.
