I needed a caterer for my dad's funeral reception. Spoke to other caterers but Carolina of Gourmet Lover's Catering was the only one who gave her condolences, this meant a lot to me. The full service presentation was tasteful, the food delicious and reasonably priced. There were no exta added on fees like the other caterers. I highly recommend Gourmet Lover's Catering, Boris & Carolina are a wonderful team and you will not be disappointed.

I am writing this review as I eat the last bit of delicious leftovers from our work holiday dinner that Susan catered. Everything was perfect from the moment she arrived. We were having a murder mystery themed party and she even came dressed to the theme! Everyone was raving about the food - the Prosciutto Chicken was a hit! We also used her bartender who was wonderful. We will definitely be using her for our next dinner!

I hired Mark for a dinner for 30 on the deck of our Del Mar beach house for the evening of July 3rd. These were our closest friends and family. Mark was expecting to arrive at 2:45 to prepare for 5 PM cocktails and appetizers. Awful holiday traffic from LA down and the Del Mar Fair resulted in Mark and his team not arriving till 5:20 (NOT HIS FAULT, JUST AWFUL TRAFFIC). With absolutely no prep time, with modest kitchen and cooking resources since this is a beach house, Mark and team proceeded to treat us to EXTRAORDINARY dishes and cocktails. The seared fois gras was out of this world. The tenderloin, lobster and salmon all wonderful. All served under the stars, on the beach, with the greatest friends and family enjoying a special evening. Everyone left in awe of Mark's work and his demeanor. Only a true professional could have pulled off what he pulled off given the hurdles he faced. He surpassed my expectations, and I am grateful that he shared his genius with our group. It will be a night no one will forget. Thank you Mark! BTW - I found him through Thumbtack.

The Pit Stop BBQ was great! The employees really LOVED and enjoyed the food. Their services were also wonderful. We've had caterers that take up to two hours to serve 150 people. Pam and her crew were done in less than an hour. I recommend The Pit Stop and am looking forward to hiring Pam again in the near future!

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!

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.

Work quality - phenomenal Professionalism - fantastic Responsiveness - Joanna couldn't have been more responsive if she tried. Value- heck yes! Do you know how pricey mobile bartending and catering vendors can be in LA? This company is a steal considering the amount of collaboration and quality of service your receive. Punctuality - On time, super fast in setting up, even faster tearing down. I highly recommend this vendor. I planned an entire event from another state and Joanna made me feel like I had nothing to worry about on her end. Will work with her again for sure.

Fitch's Kitchen catered my wedding at the Wedding Tree in Point Fermin Park in San Pedro, CA. The food was delicious, it was delivered on time, and Fitch was very understanding about a hiccup with my payment method and delivered food anyway, making sure my day wasn't ruined by an oversight (that was my own doing). I had several guests comment on the food and ask where it was from. THANK YOU!!!

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! I have hired other caterers in the past, but none of them come close the experience I had with Chef Lofthouse and his team. Chef Lofthouse created a spectacular menu and it was delicious to eat. He and his team took care of all of the planning and set-up for the event. They served perfectly on time, and gave me and my guests such great service, that my guests are still emailing me to get Chef Lofthouse's phone number. You are missing out if you don't have him cater your party!

Jessie catered two parties for me and not only was the food exceptional but she was so professional and everything went so smoothly. I don't think there was one dish that wasn't great. She was so creative and helpful with great ideas to make the parties perfect.

Iris did so much for us to make this our best holiday event to date. It was a breeze on my part, she did all of the planning, finding the DJ and venue. We worked together on menu items, and were able to taste test in advance. The salmon was amazing, as was the tri-tip. Iris is also a truly sweet person, and I enjoyed planning this event with her very much. She was very accommodating, and delivered as promised. Thank you! I would highly recommend her for your event planning.
