I hired Chef Sean to cook a 20-person dinner for my wedding. The entire experience was phenomenal! I have celiac and he was more than accommodating to my diet needs throughout the process. I wanted a special cake for our wedding so we did not get a chance to try his dessert this time around, but he did surprise us by loaning us the cake cutters he used at his own wedding. It was such a thoughtful and special gesture. The entire meal was seamless - Sean and his team were on time, took care of all the food details and clean-up and we never felt rushed between courses. He also offered great wine-pairing suggestions. Our family still raves about this meal and is constantly brainstorming opportunities to hire him again. Thank you Chef Sean for the unforgettable meal and evening!

Martha and Arturo’s company, Taste for the Senses, provided the catering for our wedding in May of 2014 (I know, it took me FAR too long to write a review!) I can not begin to describe the amazing service they gave our guests! The food was beyond delicious – In fact, I still get compliments on how wonderful their set up was and how great their food tasted (best vegetarian tamales EVER). Several people have told me it’s the best wedding food they’ve ever had and I would have to agree! Not only were Martha, Arturo, and the rest of their staff so friendly and professional, but they really went above and beyond for our wedding ( I do not have enough space here to document all the ways, outside of catering, they actually helped on our wedding day). There were several times when our wedding planner completely dropped the ball and things could have ended in absolute disaster but Martha and Arturo were right there to pick up the slack so that our guests were not aware of any issues the day of our event. Taste for the Senses truly made our day special for us and for that, we are forever grateful. You can tell that Arturo LOVES what he does and is passionate about making every event he caters a special one. The thing that really stood out to me, and touched my heart, is that Arturo and Martha brought my parents some of their delicious food a few days after the wedding when they learned that my parents didn’t get to eat because they were busy holding things together at the wedding during dinner. They absolutely did not have to do that for us – it was amazing. They both are wonderful people and I would definitely recommend them for any event, especially a wedding (in fact, I try to every chance I get!)

Rose catered my wedding reception. Like most brides, I didn't get a chance to eat much of the food, but I do recall the coconut bisque being delicious. We got the "appetizer abundance" option, and it was a lovely variety. Desserts (chocolate mousse and apple crisp) were also high points. The spread looked great, and Rose and her staff were all very friendly and professional. They worked with my wedding planner to make everything seamless.

Without Lena and diamond cut catering my wedding would have fallen apart. But because of Lena I had my dream wedding and so much was done out of the goodness of her heart. I should've called her sooner than I did! Save myself on stress!!! Highly recommend her!

Mr. Hernandez did such an amazing job on the food for my daughters wedding! The food was absolutely delicious! We received so many compliments from our guests. And when we fed our vendors we were told that this wad the best food they had tasted at an event in a super long time! It was a wonderful experience dealing with Albert. He is an artist in his profession and takes a lot of pride in what he does and how his creations are received. Thank you Albert! We super appreciate you!

On The Scene Cuisine was on time, set up all the food beautifully. The food on the trays were arranged so they looked appealing and pleasing to the eyes and was plentiful not like skimpy trays ordered from supermarkets. There was more than enough food for my wedding guests and what was prepared was absolutely delicious! It was more than well worth what was paid for and their rates are reasonable. Overall we rate OTSC FANTASTIC!! Thank you for making our event absolutely marvelous, we look forward to doing all our special events with OTSC in the future!

Gimanelli's is absolutely the best. I've used them three times for three different types of events, including my wedding with over 150 people. Each time they have been excellent. They are timely, delicious, inexpensive and friendly. Everyone loves the people that have served and cooked our food, and more importantly. Everyone loves the food! They are the best!

Basic Catering

Basic Catering is much more than catering company, it is a full service event company. Aristotle says "if a man does many things, they cannot do one thing well." That's not the case with Basic Catering. I hired them for a small wedding reception, and I was very impressed with their service. I'll list them as follows: 1. All my guests raved about the food. It was perfectly cooked and the quantity was worth the value. 2. They rent out their own party rentals (tables, silverware, plates, etc.) at a cost cheaper than the competitors. This was significant savings for me with no sacrifice on the quality. This also made clean-up a lot easier. I was not worried about the clean-up, but it did save me on venue costs. (They also do flowers) 3. Lastly, the most impressive aspect of Basic Catering is their professionalism. There will always be something missing or something that goes wrong. Their team is extremely resourceful, from their planners (Ben) to the people executing (Carie) and the waitstaff -- I am a big fan of resourcefulness. They thought of things I missed, and if something was wrong they made it right. They are quick and smart, and know how to get things done. They assisted in making one of the most significant days of my life a wonderful event. Thanks Ben. You did a fantastic job coordinating.

Branden is an absolute rock star. We found him at a catering tasting at the Brazil Room in Berkeley, Ca. Out of all the caterers with their beautiful foods and cakes on display, Branden really stood out. He and is partner were very humble and confident in their back corner booth. But more importantly extremely friendly and eager to help. The food was super good too! So, we hired him for the catering, but we got was MUCH more than that! The food and service the day of the weeding was amazing (people still talk about it to this day). But, what Branden did for the wedding was far beyond the food. He knows his stuff. I believe he said he's been doing this since he was a child. That experience shows. The amount of coordination and poise that he exhibited far above and beyond the call of duty was nothing short of remarkable. His attitude and approach really set our minds at ease allowing us to focus and remain relaxed throughout the whole process. Our wedding definitely wouldn't have been the same without him.

Two Moms Catering did our wedding and cake. The most amazing was that we are vegans and wanted to have a buffet with vegan and some gluten free. The food was "AMAZING" , the service was superb and the presentation was outstanding!! Everything was fresh and seasoned to perfection. They even did our wedding cakes one Vegan and one Gluten Free, both were beautiful, moist and delicious!!! Two Moms Catering will be our first. Pice again and again, and we would recommend them to our family and friends!

Casablanca Bridal Catering recently catered an event for me, and their service and food was far beyond anything I could have imagined. When I was preparing for my wedding, I was able to work with Cher and Derrick to give my general parameters for the type of food and cake that I desired, and they took what I said and pulled off a delectable and crowd pleasing menu, all while managing to stay within my budget. Not having to worry at all about the catering, and everything smoothly progressing from beginning to end, including setup and cleanup, was one of the key reasons my perfect day was so wonderful! I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a pleasant and fulfilling catering experience.
