I would recommend Gourmet Your Way to anyone looking for a great caterer! We loved the food and Michael was easy to work with.
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!
I don't even know where to begin! Jose is an amazing caterer and I am so happy we hired him for our wedding this past Friday. When we were first tasting caterers food they all seemed metiocre but Joses was amazing! We hired him on the spot! Not to mention he was the most reasonable price! Then everyone was making me nervous saying that catered food is never as good when they have too cool it in large quantities (we had 180 people). When we got to the reception everyone was already eating appetizers and happy. When Jose spotted my husband and I he came up to us and told us he had made us each an appetizer plate and if we wanted it. Then he came up to me to make sure I wanted dinner served when I had originally asked. I did and he brought us the first 2 plates. The food was amazing! Just as good as I remember! Everyone was so pleased and kept talking about how the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding! That was exactly what I wanted! His bartender was amazing and all his staff was so friendly. The setup looked nice and professional. The drinks he brought were great and everyone was talking about how great the mint water was! Then I ordered cheeseburger sliders and French fries to be served late night and they were amazing! He even brought wings and everyone was so excited! They went fast and by the time I got over there everything was gone. Jose told me let me get your plates and pulled out two foil covered plates. He always thought of us first and without him I wouldn't have eaten. All day everything had hiccups and my rentals were late, everything was slightly wrong except Jose! He really came through and went above and beyond. I will definitely hire him again for any events and recommend him to the fullest!
Lilian did an a terrific job providing delicious tray passed hors d'oeuvres and a scrumptious hors d'oeuvres display for the surprise birthday party we planned at at the last minute. Lilian was professional and delightful when passing the food. She was very helpful and easy to work with in the planning. Several of the guests asked me for cards and contact information to be able to hire Busy Bee in the future. My husband was not only surprised by the party but thrilled with the food and whole catering experience. He's planning on calling on Lilian again for future events. I'm in complete agreement. It was a great night and Lilian was a big part of that.
June’s food was EXCELLENT! Everyone loved all of it. She was on time and set up the delicious food safely and with a great presentation. Best choice I could have ever made. The price was also very reasonable. I would highly recommend her for any of your catering needs!
I hired Shawna to cook for my elderly, "picky" about their food, parents. Not only is her food great, she's very easy to work with, and my parents are ecstatic to not have to cook dinners anymore!
I have been the beneficiary of Mr. Bloomhuff's cooking on numerous occasions. Whether he is catering a large group in a public venue, or serving a simple lunch, dinner or large party in a private home, everything I have had is fabulous. He is a versatile "world cuisine" chef; able to update and put his own unique stamp on classics from India, Thailand, North Africa and the Middle East. A consummate professional, he knows his way around a commercial kitchen and food and beverage logistics, and has the management skills to handle a large team, make it look easy, and carry off major events with outstanding results and no drama.
I have to qualify this review first by saying I have worked as a professional cook and have owned a catering business. So I have an eye for and know what works and what doesn't, what can be prepped beforehand without sacrificing quality, and what can be done on sight and off-site with the aim of making sure everything is properly expedited and comes out on time. When I arrived the table was set up nicely set up and decorated. However, we had previously informed Chef that we were going to be 13 and we would like two tables, as some people are uncomfortable with sitting at a table of 13 people. So we had to ask Chef to please separate the two tables. When Bridgette came the day before, my wife mentioned she wanted a table of 6 and one of 7, not two tables pushed together to make 13. There were also no cloth napkins, but paper napkins. I guess assuming that a request for "linens" did not include cloth napkins, only tablecloths. But I digress. Even though this was done in our home where we are well equipped, I still expect anyone coming to prepare food to come fully equipped to meet their needs without having to use the home equipment. This was not the case, as Chef used our Kitchenaid, tongs, and other items. As well, they did not have a serving platter for one of the hors'd'oeuvres. Furthermore, they had to use some of our silverware because they did not bring everything needed (spoons, forks). There were steak knives on the table when we were eating fish, and no other knives. I had no problem with this because, of course, I wanted the event to go smoothly. But other clients might not have been as flexible. Finally, they used all my kitchen towels and had them all wet, from I don't know what- but it's easy enough to bring your own hand towels. As well, because we used the plates on the table for hors'd'ouevres, they had to wash and prepare again for salad plates, as they had expected the hors'd'oeuvres to simply be finger food. Nonetheless, the hors'd'oeuvres-asparagus with prosciutto and chicken bites, or whatever they might have been-still require plates. This delayed serving. More forethought should have been given to how this was all going to go down. Personally, I would have brought the salad all prepped. Because it wasn't prepped, it meant a longer serving delay. The server didn't know the difference between wine and water glasses-some basic protocol needed. The food was excellent and I had several very positive compliments from the guests, this is where they shined, and it was served hot and fresh like it should be. We had a delicious shaved fennel salad with parmesan, and a main course of Blackened Sea Bass with a succotash and roasted potatoes. That is the beauty of preparing on-site. I say this with the caveat, as mentioned earlier, that a few things could have been prepped beforehand without sacrificing quality. This would have allowed the service to flow more quickly and not have such long delays between dishes. As Chef prepared the chocolate mousse on site, some people had to leave before dessert since it took well over 45 minutes between our main course and dessert. While we had agreed that I would supply the chocolate, it I had known it was going to take chef so long to prepare it, I would have suggested it be made beforehand. If I had done this lunch, I would have brought the mousse pre-made. They used up my whole bag of ice too-I would have brought ice. Finally, food left over was taken away and not left with us. I asked the server I f she was going to leave the food to me as she was walking out and she laughed uncomfortably and said no. My assumption is that the client paid for the food, they should get any leftovers. I give Kudos to the Chef for excellent food, but the service was uncomfortably slow and everyone noticed. Finally, the server was inexperienced. Overall, organization and attention to details were lacking. To end on a positive note, they did an excellent job leaving the kitchen just as the found it and were friendly and professional despite the hiccups mentioned. I didn't have to worry about anything. If you are looking for good food, Chef Mumsie does a great job. But please ask that they send you experienced servers, and make sure to point out every possible detail that you can think of, because in my experience, they did not have a checklist or form to check off what you do or don't need for an event.
Great service and delicious food. Highly recommended
I planned a personal cooking lesson for my boyfriend's birthday, and couldn't have asked for a better experience! Chef Keith took time to get to know exactly what we were looking for, and he was flexible in creating our personalized 3 course menu. He showed up to my house on time, and was prepared with all of the food and cooking tools. He even cleaned up afterwards and left my kitchen spotless. The food was amazing! Chef Keith is very knowledgable about cooking. I would highly recommend hiring Chef Keith! It was absolutely worth it!!
Chef Leslie Ann was great. the food was delicious, everyone loved it and loved the variety of vegetarian friendly options. i hope to work with her again in the future.
She helped me with yellow curry with chicken, potatoes, onions and carrots. It was quite nice to be able to do this at my place. It took about an hour and a half from start to meal time and the food was really flavorful! She was calm and patient which made the experience really fun.
Our family always enjoys good food over the holidays. This time around we decided to go with a local caterer, BAPS!, so we could relax and enjoy. They did not disappoint! The turkey breast was hot and juicy- the gravy was very good- not too thick, not too thin. Moist stuffing- mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes- had to have seconds on those! The vegetable medley was a nice change over the usual one or two separate vegetables. We are looking forward to trying out other foods BAPS! has to offer for future occasions!
Absolutely! No complaints Hector and his team are a blessing .. Such great service ... Food was delicious!
We had Joan cook an anniversary dinner for my parents and our whole family. She was very easy to deal with, on time and had great ideas for the dinner. The food was exactly as planned and the serving sizes very generous! I would not hesitate in having Joan cook another private dinner for us should we return to San Diego.
Stephani did a fantastic job catering our affair. The food was tasty, healthy, and the presentation was impressive. Highly recommend.
We asked our friends and family members who had recently been married what they thought the most important part of the wedding was, and they unanimously said "THE FOOD". From the moment we requested a quote Bill's attention to detail made it a wonderful and memorable experience. We were provided with and absolutely delicious lunch at our tasting; where Bill customized our menu to fit our unique wedding theme. The staff was friendly, informative, professional and genuinely warm and kind. Bill's help however moved beyond his fabulous food. For any and EVERY coordination mishap, he was there with creative and inventive solutions. His staff went above and beyond, even assisting in set up and decoration. We were truly overwhelmed by their generosity and their willingness to be of assistance. On our wedding day, as we ran from the car to the venue to avoid the terrible storm; we were greeted by Bill with a mini buffet for the bridal party so that we would have a chance to actually eat at our wedding. To say the food was amazing is an understatement. I cannot describe how delicious it was or how beautifully and artfully arranged. I truly cannot do it justice. When asked, our guest said that hands down, it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Our menu included custom flank steak sliders with asian slaw, a variety of sushi, mini ribs, chicken skewers, grilled vegetable stuffed crepes, procuitto wrapped asparagus, endive spoons filled with tabouleh, chicken sate, and so much more. The service was impeccable and after everything was done, the staff cleaned and left everything immaculate. Most importantly, Bill was sensitive and understanding of our situation. You see , we were two brides. Bill and his staff were shining examples of what it is to treat everyone with equality and dignity and respect. We were afraid of vendors not wanting to work with us and Bill took all that anxiety away. Through his vast network he found amazing and supportive vendors who were ready to celebrate with us and were empowered by our decision to get married. We cannot thank Bill enough for the many kindnesses he bestowed on us and we cannot wait to eat at his amazing restaurant again. - C & A
