We had such a great experience with Baja's! I was planning a surprise birthday party for my 40+ year-old husband with about 65 guests, and everyone raved about the food! The meat was delicious as were the tortillas, rice, guacamole, and everything else. They threw in a complimentary vegetarian dish, which was delicious as well! The setup did take a little longer than expected, but everything turned out so wonderfully that it didn't matter. We ended up with a ton of leftover (which were left with us in large aluminum trays) even though everyone ate to their heart's content. The beans (they were whole and not refried) seemed to be the least favorite dish. The bar was efficiently set up, so the line went pretty quickly. We plan on using Baja's again for our company's Christmas party. Many thanks to Baja's for making our event delicious and memorable!

I contacted Busy Bee Cook for Me to cater my Dad's 90th birthday party for about 40 people in our senior complex. She came and checked out the venue and made some recommendations for the food and service that were right on the mark for what I was looking for. On the day of the party, she and her crew showed up right on time, and both the food and service were totally amazing. People who were there have been saying that it was the party against which all other parties they ever attend will always be measured. And Dad enjoyed himself immensely. Thanks so much to Lilian and her crew for helping make the party for my Dad such a great success!.

They did a terrific job for my twins' birthday party. A great selection of food that was delicious. All our friends were impressed. They showed up on time, set up, cooked and served our guests, then cleaned up. It made the day super easy on us so we could just relax and enjoy being with our guests.

We had an excellent experience. We used bleu catering for a birthday party of about 20. The price was reasonable for the quality and quantity of food. Very responsive to our requests and worked with our budget. I would use them again for an event.

Fantastic meal, way exceeded expectations and was much more affordable than other private chefs we contacted. Would highly recommend to anyone hosting a dinner!! Originally we looked at making a group dinner reservation to dine out in Palm Springs for a birthday party, having Cucina Migrante come to our vacation rental made for a more relaxing and unforgettable dining experience. Francesco and Adisa are true pros!

Stacy made a great dinner for our dinner party. I haven't ever done this before, I always cook myself. It was a fun treat to enjoy with my guests vs. being in the kitchen cooking. Not something I can afford to do often, but definitely fun to try! Thank you!

I was extremely happy with my experience using Isaac's Catering. We used them for our graduation party which had about 50 guests. The prices were the best and the food was fantastic! We had more than enough and everyone raved about it. The service was also great. It was delivered on time (early even!), completely set up and the everything was picked up the next day. Super easy, super yummy and within our price range. Definitely recommend!

We hired Chris after tasting her cooking at our friend's dinner party where she was the chef. She cooked dinner for us off & on during the week when our schedules got to be too much. This was during the early years of parenting and making dinner after being at work just didn't fit in my schedule. We loved having her in our home and her food was always so delicious and nurturing! I loved her help it freed up about 8 hours a week for me to spend time with the kids and or relaxing as a family. Dinner time was so enjoyable since I wasn't the one making it or cleaning up. I think she is a fine chef with a very special touch. We went to a Dinner party last summer where she was the cook...her roasted chicken w/ pasta and pesto was divine! Tracy

By far the best idea and decision for a teen birthday party ever!! He brought them aprons, taught them about different kinds of knives and knife care, workspace and hand cleanliness, how to get the best deal at the grocery stores, how to cut up a chicken, how to filet fish, proper seasonings, taste testing, how to multitask in the kitchen to time things to hit the table at the same time and how to prepare dishes for complete meals. He was patient, thorough and totally entertaining to the teens. They were all so proud of their meal and all talked about how cool this party was. After the food was set on the table, he gave a description of each item being served, then he cleaned up the kitchen and exited while we sat down to dinner. He was absolutely amazing. He'd never done a birthday party because he usually teaches couples and does catering events but I'd highly recommend him.

We used BAPS! catering for our annual Halloween party for about 100 people. The food was AMAZING and a crowd pleaser. The prices were reasonable and Brad was professional and responsive; super helpful. They did drop-off service and set it up with everything we needed and extra supplies and food to replenish as things ran out. Would use them again and highly recommend them.

I have used Patsy several times. My first class was knife skills, food prep, and planning a home cooked meal. We prepared it and enjoyed the meal we cooked. Not only was Patsy knowledgable but is a great teacher that seemed to put everyone at ease no matter how "skilled" or not we were coming into this class. My son Kurt called upon Patsy to help him plan and execute my surprise 60th birthday party. Kurt told me he never could have pulled off not only a great party with beautiful trays of food without Patsy guiding him through the whole journey as a novice party giver. Patsy is the whole package and you'll be happy you hired her.

For the last 3 years, Chef Monterey has been a constant fixture at our events.  Her food is absolutely top-notch, and she always comes up with just the right dishes for each dinner!  We've done everything from a Western-themed birthday party with authentic BBQ to a classy Old Hollywood New Year's Eve where she served an eight (!!!) course tasting menu, and her food just knocks it out of the park.   Chef Monterey is most definitely in our top 3 private chefs in Southern California (and we've gone through A LOT), and if you want absolutely AMAZING food made by a dynamic young chef with a personality to match, she's your girl!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
