On 12-17-15, the Employees' Union of the State Bar of California hired Chef Marcel for our Holiday Luncheon. Chef Marcel and his staff came on time, set up quickly, and were very professional. The food was delicious and they were able to serve over 100 employees in less than an hour, and clean up and pack up quickly. Our luncheon was a huge success! I have received nothing but positive comments from my Union members. I highly recommend Chef Marcel and we will definitely use his services again! Thank you, Lita Abella, President Employees' Union of the State Bar of California

Carolina was GREAT to work with. We had a volunteer appreciation event and they worked within a tight budget and a short timeline. They came to our event on-time to set-up and even brought in extra supplies we needed at the last minute. The payment process was also very quick and simple. We highly recommend Gourmet Lovers for your event catering needs and we plan to use them again.

This review is long overdue, but I'm so glad that we had Radish & Rose cater our wedding! I got married at The Hudson Loft, and Ariana and her team provided amazing food, super attentive service, and went above and beyond to make sure that everything went off without a hitch. We were so glad to have them as a part of our big day! We'd met with a few caterers when we were first planning our wedding, but Radish & Rose was the obvious choice for us. Their staff was friendly and open to our ideas/input from day one, plus they had the best food and planning options. They took care of every detail, which is so important when you're booking a raw space and need to rent tables/chairs, place settings, and just about everything else. Ariana thought of everything and was able to answer all of our little questions and gave us advice on the things that we were clueless about. She made our day stress-free so we were able to focus on having a great time!

We live in Laguna Niguel, and Madkins Catering was on time and I remember saying to the waitstaff, "omg, there's still more food?! Needless to say there was so much food. Madkins Catering was upfront with me in the very beginning explaining how much of each appetizer or food item I'd actually be getting which is great. I think we adjusted the amounts a few times because I thought it was going to be too much food lol, and it ended up being still too much food.... But who's complaining? :-) My guests were very pleased with the meal and left on a very very full stomach. This company is very nice and professional and delivered exactly what I wanted. I forgot to do a review at the time of the event, but the event was about 2 weeks ago. Everyone please try them, the food is delicious and at a great price!

The Catering Carnival was quick to know exactly what dishes and appetizers would work best with my event and were very organized in delivering directly to my event venue! The food was delicious and needless to say we had no food leftover! I will definitely work with them again!

Chef Mark was an amazing find! We needed a chef in a pinch for an event of 50. He jumped right in and augmented the groceries we already had with creative twists that really wowed our guests. Every bite was delicious and everyone enjoyed their meals. He even made a special separate menu for our vegan guests. He was also very congenial and engaged our guests who wanted to participate in the cooking process. Overall, his joyful demeanor and love of cooking on top of his bad ass cooking skills made our event so much better that we could have hoped for. Thank you Chef Mark!

I decided to look for a caterer for my Mom's celebration of life and my internet search lead me to Thumbtack. After inputting my needs I quickly received a response back from Tonya at Sierra Madre Catering with a detailed quote and attached menu. When I called to speak with Tonya I immediately got a good vibe from her voice. She seemed excited and eager to help plan our event and made me feel comfortable that everything would be taken care of. I am so thankful I decided to use Sierra Madre for my event. We ordered appetizers and desserts and they arrived and set everything up, brought their own trash cans and kept the tables clean as people were done eating. The staff was professional and nice and their food was DELICIOUS! Many of our guests gave feedback that the food was great and they even ran out of business cards because a lot of people were interested in having their info. At such a difficult time with the passing of a loved one, these details are important but not ones you want to worry about yourselves and Tonya and Sierra Madre staff took that burden off my shoulders and I am so thankful for that. I will recommend them to anyone in need of a caterer for any event and if I could give more than 5 stars I most definitely would!! Thank you Tonya and Sierra Madre Catering!!

WeHo Sausage and Catering Co. delivered fantastic food for my event recently. Peter was very easy to work with. He understands my requests and accommodates our guests' different tastes. His food was cooked on-site and loved by my guests. I am still getting rave reviews from the guests after the party. I will definitely hire WeHo Sausage and Catering Co. for my future events.

I cannot say enough good things about SEGAR Culinary. The prices were reasonable, their communication was outstanding, they showed up on time and set up a spread of the most visually appealing and delicious food. The event was my 50th birthday party and it helped make the day great. My friends and family were just delighted. I highly recommend this caterer for any event!!

We've worked with Fitch for over a decade. Throughout that time Fitch has catered events for our corporate staff and for joint meetings with our clients. In every case, Fitch has exceeded our expectations. The food and its presentation are fantastic. Fitch is personally wonderfully to work with. Perhaps of greatest importance is that once our requests have been placed with Fitch, we simply arrive at the event with absolutely no concerns. It turns out perfectly, every time.

Peggy C. I had tried Heather’s Savory Artichoke Heart, Crispy Sage, Caramelized Onion and Italian Cheese Quiche—and knew it was good; along with her very special (& somewhat decadent) Savory Caramelized Vidalia Onion Cheesecake_Spread, so I ordered both for the holidays. They were made with love and care and brought to my door. I loved having them on hand—as you know there are always more mouths to feed around the holidays! The care and pride she takes in her work really shows. The dip/spread is a real treat—very elegant and rich. The quiche is unlike any we’ve ever had and is truly delicious. I would highly recommend her and her cooking for anyone’s event or home.
