Chef Marcel catered my party. It was in my backyard for 40 people, mostly adults. Guests loved the food. The staff Chef hired were professional and did a wonderful job. I will hire him again when I have another party.

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.

I hosted my best friend's birthday party over the weekend and it needed to be perfect. I received a quote from radish and rose, did some research and ultimately hired them. I have never met a more efficient resourceful catering crew in my life. They helped with setting up and were EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL. They came early to set up and the waiters were the best. When the party started the appetizers came out and people were commenting on how good the food was and how beautifully presented it was. There was absolutely nothing left over. Deserts came out and was just as delightful. Everyone had something nice to say, and most importantly my friend was really pleased.

I hired these guys about a year ago for a small dinner party, about 5 of us. It was such a great experience! It was a while ago so I can't remember the chef's name, I think it was David, he was on time, professional, super friendly, did a great job working with my tiny apartment kitchen and crappy old stove. The food was impeccable! No joke BEST crab cakes I've ever had in my life! We all had a great time and my friends were also so impressed with the food. They still talk about the dinner. I'm not a fancy person who hires private chefs all the time, it was my first, but it was such a great experience I would do it again if a special occasion came up and would absolutely hire him again! Highly recommend! It took so long to leave this review because I forgot to do it last year and I'm an outta sight outta mind person, unfortunately, but I just got on here to look for another service and saw them on my list and had to leave this review. Won't disappoint!

I almost don't want to share my review of Susan to keep her all to myself! Susan made our dinner party dreams come true! From the start, she was very responsive and helpful in guiding me through the menu choosing process. She is super organized and beyond kind. She arrived prepped, dressed professionally and ready to go for our first dinner party of 8 with two servers. She masterfully orchestrated a 6 course meal with PERFECT timing. I can't emphasize enough how key her timing was...the evening flowed flawlessly because of her. She and her team were respectful and accommodating to all guests throughout the night. My kitchen looked even cleaner than when she arrived by the end of the night as well. Aside from all these operational details, her food is exquisite. We've had her now for 2 dinner parties for 8-9 people each. We've enjoyed her ahi tuna bites, salads, chicken, braised short ribs, sea bass, filet mignon, and desserts (especially the peanut butter truffles!). Her sauces are mouth watering. I'll stop here before I get too hungry!

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.

G Thymes catered a small party (35 people). Tanesha was very responsive and made great recommendations. All the guests commented on how delicious the food was, we had all small bites and hor d’oeuvres. The selections held throughout the evening. I will call G Thymes again for upcoming events.

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!
