I didn’t take pictures to show you guys but Cheri did an excellent job on my fiancé’s and my dinner for two. Not only did the food taste great but the set up was very nice. We had no hesitation hiring her for our upcoming June 2019 wedding! She will give you quality food for an affordable price. Not to mention she also has other vendors if your looking to have her company cater your wedding. She puts time and detail into her creations. I definitely recommend her.

Meal was amazing; we asked for a 100% vegetarian meal and all of the courses were fantastic; he really knows how to prepare vegetarian food. Sat was engaging and professional and the service and food were outstanding. We understand why he was voted best personal chef of Thumbtack - we would definitely hire Sat again!

This was my first experience ordering catering service so I wasn't sure what to expect. Debbie did a great job for our group. The food was delicious and plentiful. Debbie worked with some special criteria to make the deliveries to us but was on time and well prepared. Thank you Debbie for the great food and all your hard work!

I've known Grace for many years. I have been over to her house for home cooked meals that were truly gourmet, and delicious. She also prepared some food and sold it from her home. On the level of catering for large parties, I went to our friend Dave's party last month were Grace did the catering. The food was flawless, delicious, with great presentation, and great variety. I strongly recommend Grace for catering your events.

We have found Alisa through Thumbtack based upon the reviews and were extremely pleased with her Catering Service for our Wedding. Alisa and her team arrived early, set up the tables and had the venue smelling wonderful with all of the food she cooked. Not only did her and the team assist with the dinner service, but they also cleaned and packed away all of the rental settings. This was extremely beneficial and gave both us and our friends additional time to enjoy the day. If anyone ever needs Catering Services in the East Bay, she is the best and has the most reasonable prices! Greg-n-Greg

We were looking for catering services for our small and intimate wedding during December 2015. Food was a big part of the event, but we also had a limited budget, so we shopped around to find someone that would fit our needs. Pete understood our menu concept right away and was able to work with our budget. He didn't fuzz about small details that we wanted to incorporate and went above and beyond to make them happen. He even provided ideas on how to improve the overall experience, not just the food. We interviewed lots of chefs and catering companies and we couldn't be happier about working with Pete. Our foodie friends and family members praised the food, the presentation was extraordinary and the service was very professional. Pete also provided support for the drinks, bringing with him a great mixologist that crafted creative drinks for the crowd. Finally, the next morning Pete prepared brunch for guests that spent the night at the venue (and ourselves) and even tho some things did not go as planned for him (the professional oven broke down!), he was able to have everything ready flawlessly by the time we woke up. Thank you Pete for taking care of such important part of our event! We are looking forward to working with you again.

Deb makes the most amazing quiche and is such a pleasure to work with. I worked with her when she prepared quiches for our Christmas party at our home. She takes such pride in her quiches and her full service catering and has developed this into an outstanding business. I would recommend her to cater your next event and assure anyone that she delivers the best quiches and excellent services along with her great smiles and laughs.

Daniel was an amazing caterer. He was extremely prompt and came with most of the catering gear he needed (which is good because I have very few kitchen tools). Our entire group loved the food: cheese/meat course, tuna tartar, couscous, salmon, and tiramisu. It was delicious! And as a bonus, we did not need to clean up :)

I've worked with many professionals over the years, most of whom have done perfectly adequate work. Once in a while I find someone who does work far beyond my expectations. Those are my rare five-star reviews. Steve Goldstone of DNL Catering is one of those outstanding professionals. He’s cooked for me on a number of occasions, but it was a family birthday celebration he catered in under somewhat challenging circumstances for us some months ago that impressed me enough to take the time to write this review. The guest of honor had requested an outdoors brunch at a remote spot in a park in the East Bay, on what turned out to be one of the hottest days of the entire summer. The heat was already well over 100° before the guests arrived, and I was very concerned how that was going to affect the food and service.  I didn’t need to worry.  Despite the location, everything was set up on time and ready before the guests arrived.  The overall look was very attractive and appetizing, with a classic picnic look. All of the food was maintained at the right temperature throughout. Cold food & beverages were thoroughly chilled; all hot items were hot and fresh, nothing limp or lukewarm. Steve worked with me to come up with a menu which succeeded in pleasing both the vegetarian guest of honor and all of the meat eaters. (In fact, my husband tried for weeks afterward to get me to duplicate the main dish!) Portions of everything were more than adequate. Steve stayed on top of everything throughout the event, and was unfailingly pleasant & helpful.  He even took a few minutes during a lull in service to help my son untangle his kite from a tree, which I thought was really going above & beyond the call of duty!  I can say without the slightest hesitation that Steve is the first person I will call for any event I need catered in the future.
