We hired Gourmet Lovers Catering for our wedding that was on July 23, 2016, honestly nothing but AMAZING!!!. From the very first contact till the very day of the event, everything went smoothly, everyone was on top of everything and Carolina and Boris were always attentive and making sure that we were worried free for our special day. When we first contacted Gourmet Lovers Catering, Carolina was very quick to respond and be at our services in any way possible. Both Carolina and Boris are so very down to earth, sweet and beyond helpful. With Carolina's great customer service, we knew that we definitely had to set up a food tasting in which I still remember her exact words were "come hungry" and let me tell everyone who is reading this that she is not kidding!! :). The food trial was very, very impressive. Personally I am a person who admires presentations and if I do not see quality presentations it is a turnoff but Gourmet Lovers blew us away!!! One of the best presentations and food tastings that we had experienced when trying to find catering for our wedding. Both Carolina and Boris were very welcoming, so welcoming that we pretty much felt like family. The presentation was beautiful for being just a tasting they went above and beyond. The quality, freshness and taste of the food was beyond words, all the food that was tasted literally melted in your mouth. Everything that was tasted was delicious. We ended up choosing the Marsala Chicken. After the tasting, Carolina was constantly available all the time in case anything changed or any questions needed to be answered. Just everything was great, it was perfect. The day of our wedding, all of our guests loved the food that guests were going back for seconds. Their staff was amazing. During the whole night, we had a personal server attending to our every need (I apologize but we do not remember his name but he was super sweet and beyond helpful, Carolina and Boris if you can remember the gentleman please tell him a big thank you from us). Once again, everything was awesome. Carolina and Boris are very passionate about what they do and it shows within their service and work. From the bottom of our hearts, we want to say thank you, thank you, a million times thank you for catering our wedding. Carolina and Boris, you guys are amazing and we simply adore you. Thank you for making our wedding worry free and delicious!!!

This was my first time using My Taco Guy. I was EXTREMELY pleased with this catering company. They offered a variety of menu items that were all cooked on everything was fresh of the grill and hot when served. I was serving a group of 200 very hungry 5th graders for their class picnic. The staff (of 3) arrived and was set up and ready to serve the first plate within 30 minutes of arrival. They had a complete setup with tables, canopies and all the food and supplies needed....very professional presentation. The staff was friendly and helpful and very attentive to what we needed which was yummy food that could be served in a short amount of time with plenty to go around. We didn't run short on anything. The teachers and students were very pleased with the food and the service. Their pricing was competitive. Being a school event we were working with a limited budget but Linda was able to accommodate. If I had more money in my budget, I wold have gladly paid them more...they were worth it! :-) I will most definitely recommend them and will definitely call them first the next time I am planning an event. Thanks Taco Guy!!!! for a job well done!

Chef Ana was very attentive, she made sure that we were happy with the flavor and texture of the food prior to the event. She involved us in all aspects of the process from plate selection to drink, to plating. She brought more than enough servers, and they were extremely friendly and catering with a smile to my guest! Her food and staff definitely made my event a memorable one. I would definitely recommend them to family and friends! Thank you From the Grill Catering for the amazing service you provided 😊

One Hot Dish Catering Co. is amazing. They came down to Yorba Linda last month to cater our wedding of over 125 people. The wedding started at 6pm and they showed up very early to set up, meet with my wife about the location and agenda as well as to handle all the prep that was required. They went above and beyond with their gourmet 50/50 burgers and 3 cheese macaroni. Our guests are still complementing us on the food and catering we had at our special day. I would recommend One Hot Dish Catering to anyone looking for a small or large party. They are classy and will make sure you are well taken care of. We will be using them for all our events in the future.

Ms. Roberts catering and service is A1 and 5 star rated. The meals are very tasty and satisfying. I have tried 2 of her dinner entrees; first one was Liver and Onions with black-eyed and rice. The liver was very tender and seasoned to perfection. I also had the smothered pork chops with gravy and mashed potatoes; they were simply delicious. I had her award winning (4)-layer German-Chocolate Cake, and Deep Dish Peach Cobbler. They were "better than at home" Please give her a try, she is waiting to serve and cater to your needs.

Istanbul Catering provided a wonderful buffet to go along with our "Magic Carpet Ride" theme for my Mom's 80th birthday! Having lived in Turkey for a few years, Aydin's cooking brought back great memories and every guest, almost 80, loved the variety of different tastes. Aydin worked with me long distance as I planned a Southern California party from the East Coast! Everything was perfection and I can't think of anything he didn't think of and he's truly a professional! Presentation and service were absolutely wonderful! Thank you Aydin!

Being a single full-time working mom with a teenage son, I found it challenging to prepare healthy meals that my son would eat. I also realized that our dietary needs were very different. Top that off with too many leftovers that my son nor I would eat, I thought I would try a private chef to see if I could satisfy our needs as well as reduce the wasted food (on a budget)! I am thrilled to report that Jordan is an incredible chef! His food is healthy and delicious and the meals he has been preparing for my son and I have exceeded my expectations. For the last few weeks, he has been delivering several meals a week for us and has accomplished our goal! My son has been devouring his meals and voila! No more leftovers! Needless to say, I highly recommend T.S.A.R. catering!!!!!
