I got so many compliments on the food at my wedding. Even the veggie appetizer was a hit! Jose was awesome from the start and everyone loved him! For the tasting he drove to our house and essentially provided me and my fiancé with a delicious dinner. So convenient when you are busy with wedding planning. With very minimal instruction from me he pulled off a flawless dinner at our reception. He also provided the bar tenders, who were a hit as well! Jose made sure my husband and I got food and always had a full glass of whatever we wanted. Amazing, reliable service and excellent food! I would and will recommend him to everyone I know.

Amazing! Sit down dinner for 32. Everything perfect. People asked me for her card. First time hiring a catered dinner won't be the last. She made the party a celebration from the specialty drinks and passed hors d'oeuvres to the fillets and fish and through to dessert. Lilian, YOU made my husband's birthday special! Thank You so much.

This was my first experience with Thumbtack. I am very pleased with both Thumbtack and June Sper. June was very helpful with the planning of my appetizer menu. Her platters were very well done and she made an amazing shrimp cocktail tower, which everyone commented on. Delicious stuffed mushrooms and meatballs. Her proportions were very generous. Everything was fresh and delicious. I will be using June again.

I just gave a dinner party Saturday September 23, 2017 and Chef Shawna did an outstanding job. The food was so delicious. We had the cheesy bacon turkey sliders and the meatballs for appetizers (so yummy). Our salad was a beautiful presentation and the chicken marsala! .....I've never had any that tasty. The cake with berries was outstanding. Thank you Chef and Ms. Paulette for making me look good and you took all the stress out of throwing a party. I hope we will work together again (the holidays are coming).

Everybody loved the food. There was plenty and we even had leftovers. The caterers didn't mind all the stairs they had to take to carry their stove, tables etc. We will hire them again for sure when we are in the area.

We had a birthday party with over 130 people this weekend and Aioli Catering knocked it out of the park! Food was delicious and there was plenty of it! Jordan was very responsive and professional. They showed up right on time and delivered a great meal at a great price. They followed up with us to make sure everything went well! I would highly recommend Jordan and Aioli catering for your special event!

Lavonne was very flexible working with our small event. A small event of important people all with different food issues. She created an appetizer feast for meat eaters, vegetarians, gluten-free, dairy-free. Everyone was happy and well fed. She did a great job and we will use her again. I recommend Sage Bleu for your catering needs.

Fantastic meal, way exceeded expectations and was much more affordable than other private chefs we contacted. Would highly recommend to anyone hosting a dinner!! Originally we looked at making a group dinner reservation to dine out in Palm Springs for a birthday party, having Cucina Migrante come to our vacation rental made for a more relaxing and unforgettable dining experience. Francesco and Adisa are true pros!

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!

I hosted a bachelorette dinner party at my home. We wanted the dinner to be special and unique. Not only did Christine deliver she went above and beyond. The food was excellent from beginning to end. Everything was fresh delicious and exceeded any expectations. Chris is not only an amazing cook but lovely to be around. She made our dinner party so wonderful from the first bite of the appetizers to the last bite of dinner. She was very professional but not stuffy and uptight she had a great balance. All of the women could not have been happier and could not stop talking about how great the dinner was. I would recommend to anyone! We appreciate how wonderful she did.

Everything was great. We have a simple request for ribeye, potatoes, salad and dessert for or Valentines dinner at home. I think a preset menu before would have helped, but liked the surprise. Very friendly, informative about the food being served, and presentation was wonderful. Would highly use / recommend Stephan again.

Stephani did a wonderful job. We all enjoyed the tea party set up & the foods she prepared! I hosted the party; another person paid for it, so I cannot answer to Value, however, my guess is it was very good, as that person told me she & her sister, Staci were GREAT to work with! Linda H

My experience with royal food service and catering was phenomenal! I ate the chicken tacos meal. The meat was so tender, flavorful and just the right spices. The fresh salsa is just how I like and the marinated.steak was out of this world with the grilled onions yuummm. Everyone in my household tried it and were beyond impressed. The kids even loved it. I most definitely recommend this to anyone and the convenience of having the ready meal delivered to my location was all to perfect. Mike has great talent and wonderful taste. Thanks so much and I expect great things!

Michael and his team at URBN went above and beyond to make our corporate event a success! Their Pizzas were delicious and very well received by the entire team! Plus the fact that they bake them on the spot in their oven creates an unique experience. I would highly recommend them to anyone and will certainly use them again. Thanks on behalf of the entire Fox team!
