Marcel created a delicious menu based on my preferences to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner to a hungry group of 15. Incredibly professional and friendly, he has a real passion for cooking. He got a round of applause from our group when he left and then we even brought him back last minute to cook an additional meal for us one day because enjoyed it so much. The food is fresh, healthy and flavorful. We will definitely work with him again.

Chef Alexis made catering a meal in LA from MI a breeze!! Her communication is excellent and her food is even better. The lunches were a HUGE hit with our clients and really helped make my company stand out! We highly recommend So Divine Catering and are already working with them for our next round of luncheons!

We had such a fabulous time at Chef David Gussin's pop up dinner. There was the perfect mix of beautiful ambience, great music, friendly people, and of course the incredible four course meal, which was acommpanied with Chef David's signature complimentary craft cocktails. Cannot wait to attend his next pop up dinner!!

From the moment Lindsay contacted me with a quote, I was excited to have her cook for a very special birthday celebration. She was thorough, thoughtful, and she easily switched a few things up when I explained that one of our guests had some dietary restrictions. She asked to bring a server to help move the evening along, and I was happy she had the help (and Yvette was an absolute doll). On the day of the party, she was prompt, came incredibly prepared, and not only was course after course unbelievably delicious, but served in and on beautiful dishes (she provided). She and her server were personable, helpful, and by the time we were done eating the beautiful 4 course meal, the entire kitchen was spotless, and she was ready to head out. I will absolutely ask Lindsay to cook for us again, and hope it's not too long before I do so. I cannot recommend her more highly. Book her before some celebrity snatches her up as their personal!!

Claudine is a wonderful person and a great cook. Her food was delicious. In hindsight, for the size of our house and kitchen, I probably would have used someone who was a bit more organized. She was a little late and had to bring lots of things for her food preparation, so dinner was a little late. She is very hands on which is great, I just didn't have the space for it! She and her assistant did a really nice job serving and cleaning everything for me. Claudine is a very hard worker.

We had the pleasure of having Coalescence cater a company event. Laura and her team prepared a meal unlike any other. The food was delicious and flavorful and the service was prompt, yet warm and professional. Laura hit the mark, every single time a new dish was placed on the table. Its obvious she loves what she does...you can taste it in what she serves. Looking forward to the next time Coalescence caters our event!

Going with Darrell as my personal chef has been a gamechanger. Everything starts with what you put in your body and since hiring him to prepare meals for me, I've been eating healthy consistently, looking better and feeling better and more energized overall. I love the variety of his menus as well as his use of healthy ingredients and meticulous choice of produce and meats. Whenever I'm washing the dishes afterwards, there's never anything congealed or greasy. The meals are paired together in an expert fashion. I've been recommending Darrell to all my friends and would give more than 5 stars if possible. Best decision I've made!

I love working with Rebekah. She far exceeds her talent with dedication to continued learning about plant based cuisine and how each client needs a different approach to reach their goals. The food is so delicious. I am an on the go person in my business and avoid all fast food. Her meal prep program has given me peace of mind throughout the day knowing I have exceptional food to eat anytime I am hungry. Its been such a blessing to work with her !

Mai, and her dedicated crew at Mai's Aloha Cafe, provided us with wonderful, full service experience, when they catered our island inspired wedding in August of 2014. Thank you for making our event so special. We highly recommend them and their delicious, well prepared meals. Make sure to ask them about their vegetarian options, you won't be disappointed.

Wow & Amazing are two words that your guest will say if you hire Zachary. His food is YES that GOOD. He goes above and beyond to make his clients happy and we were over the moon happy with the food we had. Also a bonus the kitchen was clean to start and I think Zachary left it cleaner then it was when he started. He brings everything all you need to do is enjoy the amazing food he prepares for you. Perfectly seasoned, perfectly prepared made our party just perfect. Thank you Zachary.

Amy Jo was wonderful. I needed a nutritionist to talk with my daughter about the importance of heating healthy and to make a custom meal plan for my daughter's needs. She did both and connected so well with my daughter that we will are planning to have a few more one-on-one sessions with her for some cooking and fitness training.

    Ross was our chef for two weeks during our vacation in Los Angeles. The food she made was absolutely delicious. She fulfilled our desire to make the food healthy and super-tasty. It was eye-opening to us that the healthy food could be so delicious. She made gluten-free brownies and cookies that our kids just loved. For the main meals : she made these healthy and filling salads that were just wonderful. She was also very friendly and supportive for all our requests. We will definitely ask her to cook for us when we go to LA again
