If we could give Marcel 10 STARS, we would! What an amazing experience from the first phone call until the end of the event he catered for us. Marcel was prompt - efficient - he never missed a beat - super easy to communicate with - cared about what we wanted - he went to every length to do exactly what we wanted. We felt so taken care of. Marcel and his crew were TOP NOTCH! We will never go with anyone else - this man is spectacular and so much fun! Our guests loved interacting with him as well as my family. Oh and the food he prepared?!!!!!! Oh my word - people at the party LOST THEIR MINDS! The food was out of this world! You will not be disappointed if you choose Marcel - you will be the most talked about event all year long! Efficient - went the extra mile - worked with my husband who is extremely picky and particular - wonderful staff - fun - professional - perfect choice!

My husband and I hired Madkins catering for a family weekend in the desert (La Quinta). We requested a bbq for the first night, and an early Easter dinner for the second night. I expected the meals to be good but not great (I haven’t really had an excellent catering experience). However, the meals were OUTSTANDING. Chef Aviarie is truly talented, and our entire family and guests talked about the interesting flavors and quality of the food. I still can’t get over how Chef Aviarie and Frank prepared everything from scratch in our kitchen in just a few hours! We requested a hefty amount of dishes, and they pulled it off without a sweat! The team is incredibly kind, professional and a pleasure to have cooking in our kitchen. They even managed to entertain our 6 year old nephew while they were cooking. I should also note their rates are very reasonable! I can’t say enough good things about our experience. I am happy to serve as a personal reference in case anyone wants my feedback. Madkins Catering can provide my email address. OUTSTANDING JOB! We look forward to hiring you again in LA or in the desert!

Chef Mark is very experienced and qualified, and creates very special menus with your preferred ingredients and for every occasion, like the Thanksgiving inspired meal he prepared for us and our dinner guests last November. He is also a pleasure to talk to, so, as a customer I had a wonderful experience since the making of all dishes to the actual dinner time!

I hired Pam to chef two meals for a special treat for a family vacation. I was very happy with her service, the meal prep and presentation, and of course cleanup. She had to operate in an unfamiliar kitchen (vacation rental) and was still completely prepared with everything she needed. Of the two meals the 1st was a home run in every way. It included unique items that really showed Pam's strengths. The second was very good but not as good as the first and not as unique. Nevertheless I would hire Pam again for sure.

Alexis catered our annual holiday corporate party in our home for 30 people. Everything was perfect. She has an extensive menu to choose from. The passed appetizers were very delicious - potato chorizo empanadas, beef sliders, and spicy tuna krisps. The holiday menu was outstanding - hand-carved prime rib, turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sautéed green beans, field green salad with pomegranate, goat cheese and candied pecans. She also provided a fabulous dessert bar with mini fruit tarts, cheese cakes, brownies, Christmas cookies, and flan. Her presentation was beautiful with a beautiful gingerbread house that I got to keep. Most impressive was her excellent servers who helped to set up our tables, decorate the tables, prepare the food and serve. They also served cocktails and prepared a wonderful signature holiday drink. They arrived on time and left my kitchen in immaculate condition. Put away every dish, cleaned the ovens, stove and mopped the floor. They were so professional and helpful. Our guests loved the food. We've had holiday parties at very nice restaurants the past 12 years but everyone agreed this was the best party because of the food and service they received from Alexis and her team. I would not hesitate to hire Alexis for another event. She is fantastic. Thank you Alexis!

Segars culinary did a phenomenal job last night catering a very special dinner. Their attention to detail and ability to combine art and food in one amazing meal was second to none. They far exceeded our expectations and I would - and WILL - have them again to cook again soon. Without a question one of the best meals we have had in memory.

Chef David and his team were amazing. I hired Chef David three days before my event, and he was able to pull off a beautiful meal for 14 guests in my home. His sommelier, Marlon was super fun and created a tasty specialty drink from the odds and ends he could find from my fridge. Most importantly the food was delicious, especially the kale caesar and the butter cake. Big thanks to Chef David, we're definitely hiring you again.

From the moment Lindsay contacted me with a quote, I was excited to have her cook for a very special birthday celebration. She was thorough, thoughtful, and she easily switched a few things up when I explained that one of our guests had some dietary restrictions. She asked to bring a server to help move the evening along, and I was happy she had the help (and Yvette was an absolute doll). On the day of the party, she was prompt, came incredibly prepared, and not only was course after course unbelievably delicious, but served in and on beautiful dishes (she provided). She and her server were personable, helpful, and by the time we were done eating the beautiful 4 course meal, the entire kitchen was spotless, and she was ready to head out. I will absolutely ask Lindsay to cook for us again, and hope it's not too long before I do so. I cannot recommend her more highly. Book her before some celebrity snatches her up as their personal!!

Shelly not only makes vegan cooking simple and delicious, she provides the tools and tricks you need to prepare meals for your family! She teaches with love and passion and educates the public about plant-based nutrition and provides the info you need to make the switch from omnivore to vegan or enhance your current vegan lifestyle. I have been vegetarian for 20+ years and vegan for 9 years and I learned so much from Shelly just from one class! I can’t wait to learn more, as she has so much to offer and an entire cook book worth of recipes in her head to impress any chef!

Greg is an outstanding chef and a wonderful person. He delivered a 5-course dinner that was out of this world, and entertained the guests with his bright personality and deep knowledge of food. We hired Greg for a private birthday celebration for my girlfriend, and it was the most special experience we've ever had together. Period. Greg helped us decide on dishes based on my girlfriend's preferences (as he says, do's and don'ts), and wow, he delivered above and beyond our expectations. Each course was meticulously thought out and executed. By the end of the dinner, all of our guests wanted his contact information. If you want a private chef that will deliver an outstanding meal and experience, go with Greg.

Chef Jessie cooked a delicious Sunday brunch for me and my family and displayed it all beautifully. My guests were raving about her food and her special touch condiments. Everything tasted fresh and well thought out. She herself was sweet, on time, and well prepared. Thanks again for making our Sunday a relaxing and memorable experience.

Claudine is a wonderful person and a great cook. Her food was delicious. In hindsight, for the size of our house and kitchen, I probably would have used someone who was a bit more organized. She was a little late and had to bring lots of things for her food preparation, so dinner was a little late. She is very hands on which is great, I just didn't have the space for it! She and her assistant did a really nice job serving and cleaning everything for me. Claudine is a very hard worker.

Kim was delightful to work with in planning the delicious birthday dinner for 10 adult family members. She was well-organized and brought and prepared everything in the home. Plus, she included lovely touches such as a framed display of the menu and personalized place cards which accompanied the wonderful meal she prepared, served and later cleaned up....all in a timely way. In other words, I would highly recommend. Deb, Santa Barbara

We've had Wendell cook for us a few times and it has been a uniquely remarkable and delicious experience. Both my wife and I are picky eaters and have food allergies to boot, Wendell graciously went out of his way to cultivate a menu that accommodates us and still delighted our taste buds. We look forward to our next meal with Wendell.

Going with Darrell as my personal chef has been a gamechanger. Everything starts with what you put in your body and since hiring him to prepare meals for me, I've been eating healthy consistently, looking better and feeling better and more energized overall. I love the variety of his menus as well as his use of healthy ingredients and meticulous choice of produce and meats. Whenever I'm washing the dishes afterwards, there's never anything congealed or greasy. The meals are paired together in an expert fashion. I've been recommending Darrell to all my friends and would give more than 5 stars if possible. Best decision I've made!
