We were looking for catering services for our small and intimate wedding during December 2015. Food was a big part of the event, but we also had a limited budget, so we shopped around to find someone that would fit our needs. Pete understood our menu concept right away and was able to work with our budget. He didn't fuzz about small details that we wanted to incorporate and went above and beyond to make them happen. He even provided ideas on how to improve the overall experience, not just the food. We interviewed lots of chefs and catering companies and we couldn't be happier about working with Pete. Our foodie friends and family members praised the food, the presentation was extraordinary and the service was very professional. Pete also provided support for the drinks, bringing with him a great mixologist that crafted creative drinks for the crowd. Finally, the next morning Pete prepared brunch for guests that spent the night at the venue (and ourselves) and even tho some things did not go as planned for him (the professional oven broke down!), he was able to have everything ready flawlessly by the time we woke up. Thank you Pete for taking care of such important part of our event! We are looking forward to working with you again.
We used Made with Love catering for a work holiday party. Debbie and her team were on time and everything was set up and ready to go by the time the guests started to arrive. I got nothing but compliments on the food and set up. Debbie was very professional and on top of her game. We never ran out of food and everyone was very happy. Her mint truffles....OMG.....SO GOOD! We would use her company again in a minute
The quality of food we got for the total price was amazing!!! Paul was great and gave use everything we wanted and more. It was so nice that we did not have to worry about the food, it was just there and ready do devour!!! We are talking about making my parents ranch a small venue and would love to use Nitro BBQ as our go to catering company. Paul, I will let you know if that pans out.
Deborah is amazing! She catered a family brunch a few weeks ago and everything was wonderful. All the food was organic and locally sourced. She makes the best quiches I have every had! All my family were impressed With the beautiful layout of food. I'm in love with quiche and carry. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for catering.
We have found Alisa through Thumbtack based upon the reviews and were extremely pleased with her Catering Service for our Wedding. Alisa and her team arrived early, set up the tables and had the venue smelling wonderful with all of the food she cooked. Not only did her and the team assist with the dinner service, but they also cleaned and packed away all of the rental settings. This was extremely beneficial and gave both us and our friends additional time to enjoy the day. If anyone ever needs Catering Services in the East Bay, she is the best and has the most reasonable prices! Greg-n-Greg
Grace cooked outstanding food (salmon, prosciutto/melon, eggplant, citrus salad) and provided an all-around amazing experience - customizing the menu to fit our tastes! Thank you so much Grace! I will recommend you to everyone looking for a personal chef/catering!
Matt was very nice and professional at all times. He showed up at the event I booked him for way before the event time to set up and to personally make sure everything was as it should be. He is really the whole gamit when it comes to catering. He obviously takes pride in what he does and it shows. As an events coordinator, he is the type of person I want to work with. I will definitely use him again for my clients events. Sheri A Touch of Class Entertainment
I not only hired Nick to do my wedding cake for my wedding that we had in September 2013 . I also hired him to do my catering and to plan my wedding. It was a wonderful thing to not have to worry about nothing .Nick and his staff did a beautiful job on transforming my wedding into my dreams. He kept me updated every step of the way on flavors of my cake and styles of my cake. He also provided me with wonderful tastings of my catered food that was to be done on my wedding day. I never knew of any problems on the day of the wedding Nick took care of everything. I believe famous creations went above and beyond what I expected them to do and I would definitely recommend them and hire them for any other events that I do. A+ service .
I had a catered luncheon bridal shower. The food was delicious,more than enough to eat and the service was prompt and timely. Desserts were delicious , favorite part of the event😘
Elyse and her wonderful assistant were awesome! They were punctual and very professional. The Valentine's Day dinner that Elyse prepared for my husband and me was incredible! My husband was pleasantly surprised, and best of all, the food was delectable! With three young children it's often hard to get away and have a romantic dinner with each other. Elyse and her lovely culinary assistant turned my little apartment into a quaint hideaway encompassed with love! Thank you so very much! This was definitely a night I will never forget!
Cheri was easy to work with, and super friendly! She made scrambled eggs for a wrestling team of 50, before their last tournament of the year. Thank you Cheri!
Food and service-AMAZING!!!! Will be hiring them for my future catering events
We had an excellence experience with Chef Jose and the Jks Catering crew. The food was fantastic; highlights included the stuffed mushrooms, Anita's special cheese platter, and the fish tacos. We had an outdoor party for 50 people and from set-up to breakdown, JKs was nothing but professional and responsive. Nadia was an excellent server - anticipating needs and making excellent suggestions that improved the flow of the party. A great experience overall - we will look forward to using Jks Catering again!
Wanting to learn to cook lower calorie food that still had great flavor, I hired Zac to come to my home and teach in our kitchen. My husband is our (excellent) cook, I am not a cook (at fifty-something years old), presenting a bit of a challenge. Rising to the occasion, Zac planned a meal that read like the menu at French Laundry! Panic!There was no way I could prepare this meal. Zac said...Way! He met me at Sonoma Market to introduce me to fresh everything, not packaged anything! Back at our kitchen, the magic began and WOW! Probably one of the most delicious dinners I've ever had at home, and certainly rivaling 5 star restaurants. Our cooking and dining experience was nothing short of superb and better yet, not a dollop of butter or a drop of cream was used to create the fantastic soup, salad, and complex main course. Through Zac's exceptional knowledge of herbs and spices, he taught me to create extraordinary flavors to enhance the food, and not over power it. It was a brilliant evening of cooking! Zac is easy going, yet very assured, and his ability to communicate is second to none. Remarkable job by a talented young man who will be continuing to educate us in the kitchen and most assuredly catering events for us. Bravo, Zac...Bravo!
Laurel was enthusiastic, professional and supplied the ideal buffet for a memorial service at very short notice. I would recommend her unreservedly. Everything was timely, skilfully served, and swiftly cleared.
Dennis and his team were really awesome and professional! He catered our Startup Weekend event! The brisket, pulled pork, and BBQ tofu was so yummy!
We recently hired Eileen and her staff with What's Cookin to cater a backyard luau party. From beginning to end, she was very easy to work with. The bottom line is that her food was AMAZING! What a talent!! Our party guests raved about the dishes she prepared. Since the party was themed, we worked together to come up with the perfect selections for a summer luau. Her staff that worked the party with her were super friendly and smiley, professional, and instinctively knew how to "be there" for our guests needs. As the hosts of the party, my husband and I were able to focus entirely on our guests, which is exactly what we were looking for. We were all very impressed with everything, and are certain we found our new favorite caterer! Thanks Eileen and your staff for a job well done!
I hired Olive for my birthday party and they are hands down the best catering experience I've ever had for reasonable prices. The value simply can't be beat! We had the Moroccan salmon, a lamb dish and some side options and they were all delicious. Both Arkadi and Elinor went an ve and beyond to make this experience go smooth. I will certainly be asking for services in the future for both private parties and work related events.
Alta Cuisine did a fantastic job catering a wedding June 2015. Lisa Morningstar was exceptional to work with and so patient with our changes, etc. The food was outstanding, we were able to taste test the food prior to the wedding and it was even better the day of the wedding. They are very organized, and setup the event better than we visioned. I can't say enough good things about Alta Cuisine and her entire team they are outstanding and very professional.
Everything you can ask for in a fast convenient catering company! Great group of people and good food!
I was looking for a caterer for a party, so I tried Thumbtack. I received quotes from five people, but the moment I read Patricia's suggested menu I knew I was going with her. The venue did not have a prep kitchen or even a oven for that matter, but it did not phase her. Even when I requested a "sampling" of the menu a few weeks before the event she was on top of it. The day of the party she was right on time. The food looked great and the guests all enjoyed the wonderful meal. The only reason for the 4 stars was due to the staffing. There were two people setting up and helping serve. They were not very experience and it showed. I think with a more professional staff I would have would given 5 stars!
