I hired Gourmet Lovers Catering for my parent's 40th anniversary party. I had them do the dinner and the cake for 100 people. Everything went very smoothly and it was very easy to work with them. Most importantly, the food got very high remarks from the guests. Because of the stress, I couldn't eat more than a few bites that day, but even the left overs the next day were great! If there is another event that I need catered in the future, I will definitely be giving them a call again.

I had an amazing experience with Carolina and Gourmet Lovers Catering!! The food was incredible but the personal customer service put them over the top! I hired them for a baby shower event and so many guests asked me where I got the food from! Will definitely look to them again for my next event. 110% satisfied!

We hired Mr. WorldWide Catering for our April wedding and couldn't be happier with Jose and his team of professionals! From the very beginning, Jose was quick to respond to all of my questions and continued being efficient until the end. When it was time for our tasting, he drove the 60+ miles to our house without hesitation. The food was DELICIOUS! We chose to go with his Hawaiian menu and were so excited for our guests to try it. As we expected, there were many compliments from everyone about the food! During the reception, Jose personally brought us our plates of food to the sweetheart table and also supplied us with a beverage bucket full of our favorite drinks. We definitely felt like royalty. As a bride, and a wedding planner, I can guarantee that I will be referring all of my friends and future clients to Jose! Thank you for making our special day so unforgettable!!

I planned a 50th birthday party for about 40 people. Before the party Jose met with my family and provided a tasting of some of the choices we wanted. The food is FABULOUS!!!!!! Jose was so accommodating regarding food choices. He did whatever it took to make sure we had the meal we really wanted. Jose is one of the nicest people I know and helped me out the entire planning process, always there to answer questions and make my catering experience extremely easy. Jose's staff was so nice and made all of my guests very happy, not only with the food but with the whole experience. Jose's prices are wonderful and several of my friends will use him in the future. I happy to recommend Jose anytime for any event.

Chef Mike catered our Toastmasters Club's 25th Anniversary Gala. We had 80 guest. Chef Mike was the first caterer to respond to my request for a quote and he continued to be quick to respond throughout the entire process. Chef Mike provided us with a tasting prior to the event and we were sold from the first bite. He and his crew were flexible, professional, kind and efficient. The food was marvelous. We had Tri-tip, Salmon and Chicken for our entrees. All three were superb. So were the side dishes. Chef Mike altered his ingredients to accommodate our gluten free attendees and added special entrees for our vegan enthusiasts. No matter the request, the answer was always "Yes". Chef Mike and his team were a big part of the successful outcome of our event. I highly recommend Gourmet Your Way Catering for any event, large or small! You're going to love your experience with GYWC!

My wife and I live very busy lives with demanding work schedules. When we are not working we love to spend time with our family and entertain. I am a bit of a foodie as is my wife, so when we entertain the meals must be perfect. I am very impressed with Lilian's ability to deliver the highest quality cuisine in a variety of nationalities. She has prepared French, Moroccan, Thai, Asian fusion, Mexican fusion, and Mediterranean to name a few. She has served us at an intimate table of four to catering fundraisers for over 300 people. In addition to the fabulous food, Lilian has a friendly inviting personality and always has a smile on her face. If you hire Lilian as your chef, you will not be disappointing!

Lilian truly helped to make my Christmas party an outstanding one. From the first time we corresponded, she was very timely and organized with making arrangements and worked hard to ensure I was happy with the final details. The day of my event, Lilian was extremely professional, congenial, and organized. The food was delicious and there was a wide variety of options for everyone. My guests commented many times on how good the catering was and how friendly Lilian was. If I ever have another event requiring catering, I would definitely book her again. 5 stars for sure!!

She possesses a vivacious personality and is extremely fun to work with! Her culinary skills are excellent...the food was fantastic! (My personal favorite was the Sicilian Swordfish Skewers.) She will be the first person I call when I need a caterer again!!

I have nothing but great things to say about the service, quality, and overall delivery of Best Mobile Chef. From beginning to end, Shawna was very attentive and professional. As a bride, I can honestly say that planning a wedding is one of the most stressful experiences in your life; however, Shawna did an amazing job at making sure I was not stressed or worried when it came to the catering, bartending, and cake. She made sure that each and every need was met, and she even offered her assistance with cutting our cake even though that was out of her services. We sat down and went over every detail, and Shawna made sure to keep in touch throughout the way to maintain things and to make sure that we were on track with everything. Finally on the day of, the food and setup was more than what was expected. Our family and friends spoke so highly of the food and service. Shawna and her team was absolutely phenomenal! My husband and I would definitely book Shawna and her team again for a large dinner, and even desserts. We are both forever thankful and grateful!

I'm the West Coast Manager of the Warrior Support Team, an outreach program of MarineParents.com. We serve dinner to the Wounded Warrior Batallion at the Naval Medical Center, San Diego every Thursday. Because this is a military base, caterers are sometimes reluctant to follow the procedures necessary to get through the security gate and deliver the food. June and Gary not only were willing to deliver the food, but did so on time, which is critical for us. The food itself was excellently prepared and flavorful. I look forward to working with June Sper Catering on a regular basis.

I hired June Sper catering for a large 4th of July party and I couldn't be happier! Her professionalism was evident by her feedback on my choices of menu items. She also helped me by figuring out a few sides and items for the younger guests. Her delivery on the afternoon of the party was prompt and her setup and instructions for serving and storing the food were much appreciated. My guests loved the food and I ordered enough that guests were able to take as much as they wanted home afterwards. I will definitely use this company again in the future! Thank you June!!

Prime Cuts Catering. This place was the best idea I ever had for party I’ve done a lot of parties for my daughter over the past 16 years and usually we cook but because she was having a sweet 16 without we have somebody else come in and cook let me tell you this is the best idea I’ve ever ever ever had Mr. Ron and his wife came in and showed Out!!! Menu for our daughter‘s sweet 16 party was chili cheeseburgers fries hot dogs and low and behold he threw it onion rings which had to of been the best ever... I feel really honored he was able to do our party. I also let him know that I had a few people that were vegans, and would need a vegan dish. Now I’m a meat and potatoes kind of girl, but I think if I had to become a vegan I could live off of his portobello stroganoff yes I said portobello stroganoff it was the business it was so flavorful.

I highly recommend Chef Mumsie for a wedding that needs catering or for any event that involves great food and wonderful service. It is hard to describe the quality of good food other than to say that it was delicious and all the guests were raving about it. Appetizers included incredible onion pastry puffs that were the talk of more than one conversation I had that night. Salad was also a big hit, not something one usually expects to say about salad. The entree was talked, posted, and blogged about. Beautiful flatware and table settings were used, and the service was light-footed, courteous, and professional. We felt we were in a 5-star hotel, not our own backyard (which is where we actually were). Aside from all this, I want to mention how impressed we were with the hard work that was so evident. Chef Mumsie's staff was present from 2pm on toward 11pm and never stopped moving for a second. We were promised that we would not have to worry about a single event during the day and that was exactly what happened. Without even realizing that we had left so much in the hands of our caterers, we passed the night catching up with old friends, connecting people, taking photos, and meeting each other's friends from far off -- never once did we have to stop to check up on any details of any kind. Chef Mumsie seemed to be in eight places at once at any moment, and everything took care of itself as if by magic. There were no hidden charges, unexpected twists, or demands for attention. We are very impressed and grateful for their efforts in feeding and satisfying 80+ people in a somewhat confined space -- done with grace, speed, and invisibility. .. and deliciousness!

If we weren't already all standing up dancing when we did our thank you announcements I GUARANTEE there would've been a standing ovation when we thanked Chef Mumsie and Chef Renee for the AMAZING job they did for our wedding. Just when my husband "YAAYYY, I can officially say that now" and I thought we couldn't be any more impressed, we WERE!!! From start to finish this was the by far the best catering experience for any of us. You guys have all of our cater-worthy events for life. You certainly lived up to your motto and gave us an affair to remember. We're still savoring the last few pieces of the wedding cake... going to be soooo sad when it's all gone. The Morgans

Chef Mumsie is a wonderful catering company. Very personable and the food was delicious (warm, tasty, and satisfied my 300 guests). Bridgette was amazing to work with and was able to meet my every standard. They enthusiastically worked with me to provide a meal within my budget. They were able to provide a meal (Spaghetti with spicy meatballs, vegetarian baked spaghetti, mixed green salad, dinner rolls/garlic bread, and cookies) that was delicious.

I am beyond grateful to Thumbtack for connecting me to Chef Keith Prante and his team at Hautè Productions Events and Catering to cater my mom's 80th birthday celebration. They are absolutely A-MAZING! Chef Prante was one of two chefs who responded to my request via Thumbtack, and I also received a personal referral. Neither of the other caterers offered ANYWHERE NEAR the quality, selections, variety and value that Hautè offered at my price point. We had our tasting today, and it absolutely sealed the deal! Everything was delicious and the presentation was outstanding. I highly recommend Hautè Productions to any potential customer who appreciates excellence, accommodation and genuine customer service.

Chef Keith and his staff were great! He arrived early, set up amazing food stations and a bar for our non-profit cocktail party. The lamb chops, POKE station, "mushroom en croute", short rib skewers, cheese platter, and dessert bar complete with deep fried brownies were all a huge hit. Chef Keith really impressed my guests and made me look like a superstar hostess. I would hire him again and many of my friends and associates took his card for future catering events. Loved the bartender, server and Keith's helpers. My kitchen was spotless also...worth it!

Tray Gourmet Catering provided a wonderful Afternoon Tea to our 140 guests in Carlsbad . They generously donated their services to our Non-Profit fundraiser impressing our Board Members, but most important our guests. The majority of our guests don't usually have an opportunity to come to such a event. Our Afternoon Tea included 5 traditional Tea sandwiches as well as special sandwiches for our young guests, We also had an assortment of 4 delicious desserts . The plate presentation was beautiful too. The entire staff was very friendly, had prompt delivery and set up and they executeded all of our requests. I also had the opportunity to see them serve a wedding in Vista. Again it was a beautiful presentation and the kitchen smelled amazing, wish I could have stayed to eat there too.

Our plans to have our wedding meal prepared by our favorite restaurant fell thru 3 weeks before our wedding. I knew Christine Mcmaster as an excellent cook and had been to 2 private dinners catered by her. Quite anxious, I called her and she put me at ease with her assurances and suggestions to take my time and figure out what we would really like. Great advice! We chose Mediterranean food. Together with Chris we quickly settled on a menu. There were so many details but she handled it all from overseeing the table setting, shopping, deliveries and arranging table display. It was amazing I actually could relax. The meal was sumptuous elegantly prepared and plated all by Chris and her kitchen staff. Our dinner menu was: A simple greek salad, hummus, tzatziki, baba ganoush, roasted vegetables, flat bread Then Shawarma lamb, roasted chickens, and feta rice w/ pistachios. There were 35 people at the wedding meal and all the courses were on time and beautifully plated. The kitchen was quiet and when I went in everyone was smiling and extremely busy. Chris ran the kitchen in a quiet organized way that was contagious to all who worked there. Truly an amazing woman. Her sense of elegance shined thru both in the delicious food and its presentation. My husband and I will have lasting memories of Christine and how she stepped in and played an integral part in helping create our dream wedding. I highly recommend you have her cater any function. All you have to do is relax and enjoy it.

Christine McMaster is a hidden gem of the culinary and catering world! She was the caterer last year for a wedding I attended and I was most impressed. She completely handled an amazing dinner for 21 people with delectable Indian and Middle Eastern Food; taking care of the shopping, the food preparation, the service and cleaning up of the food and leftovers. I was so impressed that I asked her to cater an Indian Meal for 75 people! Since it was a much larger undertaking, we provided theingredients, but Chris oversaw every aspect of the preparation of a 5 course meal, and remained calm, organized and personable throughout. The food was absolutely delicious. I would absolutely recommend her for any catering needs you might have - you would be lucky to get her!

I hired Gil to cater a small wedding reception dinner for 20 people at a friend's home in Menifee. From beginning to end, he was a pleasure to work with: His food presentation was beautiful and delicious, he gave an accurate idea of available food options, and then, in every correspondence, Gil was quick to respond with availability, pricing, and other details. He and his staff kept an attentive eye on us, helping keep our glasses full and ensuring good pacing between courses. He left the kitchen clean and organized and was a calm and friendly presence throughout the meal. I'm so glad I thought to look around for a home chef as an alternative to dining out after my wedding--it made for a much more memorable, intimate, and stress-free experience than going out.

From the beginning Chef Gil was extremely attentive to what I was looking for in my menu. I really liked the fact that unlike other caterers who have their preset generic menus we created a menu together that was totally unique and tailored to what I wanted. He also took the very specific ideas I gave him and put his own touches on them adding a real level of elevation (even the water station had cucumbers and lemons and looked gorgeous).

I highly recommend Chef Renee and the Luscious Bites team for all your catering needs. We recently had our Annual Corporate Sales Meeting and had multiple Sales Reps visiting California for the week. After weeks of planning and setting up a few evening events to entertain our Reps, we found out 5 days before one of the events that the original plan was no longer going to work. In a last-minute mad dash to throw together a themed dinner party we asked around for recommendations and the moment I spoke with Jessica and received the menu I knew I found the right company. Best decision we made was to hire them. Chef Renee and her team made everything so streamlined and simple on our end. We literally picked the food and they handled everything else. From set up to break down to clean up, we did NOTHING!!! Which was a nice change since we usually do EVERYTHING. Not only did they accommodate us with regards to our time sensitive needs, They also were great at helping us choose the best menu to fit our Polynesian theme. Their pricing was more than reasonable esp. for all she and her team did to provide such a great atmosphere with such great food. AND THE FOOD IS GREAT, phenomenal is even a better word to describe the choices for our dinner party. We took all the reps to the Cayman Islands one year for this meeting and can you believe I got more compliments and rave reviews about our Laguna Beach event then I did about being on an ISLAND. It is all attributed to Chef Renee's food and her team's service. All in all, the event went off without a hitch. Thanks so much again to Chef Renee and her team. You will NOT be disappointed and no need to keep searching. Just book them for your event today.... you hit the jackpot!!

We will certainly use them for all of our catering needs going forward starting with our daughter's wedding... friends and family are still talking about the wonderful decor and sublime food. Worthy of 10 stars.

Chef Steve did an amazing job preparing a luncheon at my home in Laguna Beach for 50 people. . The portions were large and scrumptious with lots of leftovers. I would definitely recommend him and will use his service again. Thanks Steve for a job well done.

Chef Rich catered our family Easter Brunch for years. His platters of fresh fruit and exotic cheeses looked almost too good to eat. Rich attended to carving stations as he prepared omelette's to order while keeping the family entertained by his culinary skills and witty personality. My family looks forward to the brunch every year and So do I because chef Rich makes it fun for everyone while enjoying delicious food.

I had the privilege of attending a catered affair by My Green Chef, the food was excellent in both taste and presentation. Mr. Hass was very friendly and professional I plan to use My Green Chef for an upcoming event and will be sure to post again!
