Rocco came to my home to cook for my guests. He did a great job !! While he was serving the food for us he was sharing his cooking experience and also he told us how to select healthy foods: while we were eating to hear his experience and knowledge about foods it was our appetizer! The food he cooked for us the flavor came from the food itself: our food it was not too spicy or add too much another thing to get the flavor ( like cream , too much butter or oil) but I can tell from the food flavor Rocco use fresh and organic food for his cooking and that gives his cooking very natural and healthy taste ! He is very charming and thoughtful! The food was phenomenal! I really recommended Rocco as a experienced chef for someone who need healthy and testy food for parties or for any event! I have a plant to hire him for all my future events. I really excited to know such a talented chef in the Bay Area!! Thank you so much Rocco to make my dinner party very special and an forgettable!!
Amazing food & setup! Everything was covered!! The fresh salad & dressings, warm tortillas, cheese, cream, different selections of salsa, guacamole, onions, cilantro, grilled meats & veggies, beans, and of course, the favorite- churros! Everyone went crazy for them! There was an abundance of food. They made our party a hit- thanks so much!!!!
Chef Sat cooked a delicious meal for my party of four. He was flexible with the menu, which I had to adapt for my picky-eater parents. We had the bruschetta, beet salad, halibut, and steak (the halibut with couscous was a big hit), and just when we thought we couldn’t eat another bite, he brought out the baked pears with cashew cream – his recommended dessert. We practically licked the plates clean. Trust him when he tells you to get this dessert. Wow. He arrived right on time and the meal was paced out very nicely. He cleaned everything up for us before he left and we had plenty of leftovers. Thanks for a great evening, chef Sat.
We used Debbie to cater our office holiday luncheon. We loved working with her every step of the way. From the beginning she was enthusiastic to talk with us and very helpful in planning out the menu. She was fast getting back to us with any questions and requests we had. She was accommodating with our special requests and making sure we had everything we needed/wanted. Most importantly though, THE FOOD WAS AMAZING! Everything was homemade and delicious, our employees were still talking about it the next week. One of our dishes was a roasted turkey and it was incredibly moist, so good. The deserts we all so tasty (a chocolate cake, apple crumble, and pumpkin pie) and she made homemade whipped cream to go on top...YUUUM. Debbie and Made with Love catering was a delight to work with and we definitely plan to use her for future events. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
They were on time, had plenty of food for the number of people expected, the food was good, and setup and clean up were quick and efficient. About the only thing they could have done better is remember to bring ice for the lemonade. That's a very minor thing in the big picture.
As a event coordinator I have worked with Steve and the folks at DNL Catering on many special occasions. We have worked together on wedding and baby showers, brunches, wedding receptions, work Christmas parties and anniversary parties. They always provide a menu to your request and the playing of the food is always on beautiful plates and dishes, not aluminum trays. There are always compliments on the foods from the guests. We are always a happy with the selections. Their website makes it easy to browse their menu and I always receive a reply promptly when I submit an event request online. DNL Catering is on my preferred vendor list when I meet with future clients. I have used them in my own home numerous times. They are my 'go to' caterers for any event.
My experience with Deborah for a professional business meeting was top notch. Prompt, plenty of food, catered to a picky audience (gluten free one person, another no tomatoes, another no cheese, bla bla bla). Everyone was impressed with the food, and the service. Many thanks. And it kept on giving, that night my 14 yr old freshman reminded me that it was his turn in Adviser session to bring snacks, so Wallah! - Bunt Cake to the rescue. It also turned out that another Advisor was not there and instead of the normal 8 - 10 kids they had two groups and only ONE treat. Again Bunt Cake to the rescue - he and 18 kids demolished that cake at school today and it was PERFECT! The salmon was divine - from the local fish market, and the desert, fresh peach and strawberry cobbler with homeade whip cream we are still eating.... Can't write a better story. I gave the Donuts to the staff and right now am eating cheeses and Kelly left for an evening meeting and discovered the left over pasta, so she's off with it, and we all had the rest of the salmon for dinner last night (except what's in the fridge). Masterful job! All ended well. thanks again from us all John
Grace catered our baby's first birthday party and everyone raved about the food! The salmon cream cheese caper rolls were my favorite! She was very communicative and willing to do whatever we needed (including making everything gluten-free). Setup was a snap and everything was yummy. Thank you so much!
This caterer prepared lunch for 30 people on Memorial Day for us. We found them on Thumbtack and we’re glad we went with them! Everything was as expected or better! First of all, their smoked ribs were AMAZING. Everything else (chicken skewers-very tender, deviled eggs with smoked bacon, garlic and honey meatballs, grilled corn, vegan pasta salad, arugula salad) was delicious as well. Everyone should add their Bourbon Banana Pudding for dessert, because it was so good! I love Paul Martin's banana cream pie, but this pudding was even better! I would definitely go back to them again. Too bad I forgot to take some photos!! And yes, they are very professional. Just tell Matt what you are looking for and he'll come up with a menu for you. Easy!
I don't even know where to start! Nick is absolutely AMAZING!!! My husband and I had originally met up with him to talk wedding cake. But then he had stated him and his hubbie had gotten married at the same location where my wedding was located as well (The Vacaville Opera House). He went to tell us how he catered his own wedding and asked if we would be interested in that. After tasting his DELICIOUS white cake with strawberry cream cheese filling (which we went for with our cake) we knew we had to have a tasting. A few weeks later, my father and I had a catering taste test and fell in LOVE! Everything was delicious and full of flavor! We went with tri-tip, veggie pasta, rice and veggies. Since that day he has been there for me none stop. Attending meetings with me, answering any questions I had, and would even call me to calm me down if I has having a bride melt down. Hes passionate in what he does and he does a damn good job too. Shoot, he even came to my rescue the day of my wedding when a few things were missing! He made sure I didn't have a thing to worry about on my big day. I wish I could give him more stars on this rating because he deserves them! I will definitely be going back to Nick if I ever need any kind of dessert or event catering done. Thank you for everything darling!
Angela was so great in accommodating my last minute birthday party. We needed a mixed menu of vegetarian, meat, nut-free, and gluten free. The menu was fabulous- flavorful stuffed chicken, veggie dumplings with marinara sauce (omg), and out of this world ice cream cake (who would've ever known it was gluten free!). Another thing is she didn't just drop off the food- she helped us serve it. We loved the personal service and attention to detail! 👍🏻👍🏻. Definitely hiring her again!
Tom helped make my wedding go off without a hitch. The crab cakes were phenomenal and the salad was delicious. The beef kabob I had was a bit dry, but all-in-all his service was tremendous. As a stressed out bride, I really appreciated his calmness and prompt arrival. He set himself up in the kitchen, requiring little to no direction from myself. He is extremely friendly and fun to have around. Would definitely recommend him again.
Lucas created and executed a beautifully, delicious menu for my mother's 75th birthday party. It was a dinner party of 20, and he accommodated all "special" requests. Pleasing 20 people at once is no easy feat, but Lucas, and his server Doug, worked flawlessly together to make every one feel special and important. The food was amazing- meyer lemon cream shrimp fettucine-Yum - chateaubriand steak- delicious and cooked to perfection, shrimp canapes, decadent mac and cheese- he pulled it off to perfection. We could not have asked for anything more - it was beyond our expectations for this very special evening. Lucas is a great find!
WOW!!! Stephanie & Mary outdid themselves!!!! Where do I start? 1st, our event was my Mom's 95th birthday party with family coming in from across the USA. So, it had to be special. Stephanie & Mary came with all the appetizers we ordered in great abundance, already plated! Steph went out of her way to find 9 & 5 birthday candles! So sweet! They were careful to have low glycemic and low salt food alternatives as requested! The fresh food from vegies, cheese, steak, pastas to homemade breads were out of this world! Tastes were varied and a joy to the palette. Everyone raved about the food! The carrot cake was to die for: fresh & dense cake with real butter, cream cheese and sugar (not low glycemic) frosting! Makes my mouth water just writing about it! Stephanie's company will be a permanent part of our family now. She was so easy to work with. Steph's work was detailed, pricing was competitive and service was timely! We couldn't have asked for more! Thanks for a perfect party, M. Kelley
The event was an adult dance party with friends and local residents so going in we knew everyone would be pretty respectful and helpful. So there was the question of whether we should even hire Roddy given our tight budget. But we were so glad that we did because we found his service to be invaluable. He showed up to the party early and dressed professionally, he helped set up, during the party he cleaned, he refilled and restocked drinks, he even ran to Safeway twice for forks and ice. After the party, he cleaned and did whatever we asked. He was always polite and had a smile on his face the whole time. Roddy kept the party running smoothly and it was awesome having him there. Roddy handled any issues that came up which allowed me to hang with my friends and dance the night away. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to anyone considering using him.
Wanting to learn to cook lower calorie food that still had great flavor, I hired Zac to come to my home and teach in our kitchen. My husband is our (excellent) cook, I am not a cook (at fifty-something years old), presenting a bit of a challenge. Rising to the occasion, Zac planned a meal that read like the menu at French Laundry! Panic!There was no way I could prepare this meal. Zac said...Way! He met me at Sonoma Market to introduce me to fresh everything, not packaged anything! Back at our kitchen, the magic began and WOW! Probably one of the most delicious dinners I've ever had at home, and certainly rivaling 5 star restaurants. Our cooking and dining experience was nothing short of superb and better yet, not a dollop of butter or a drop of cream was used to create the fantastic soup, salad, and complex main course. Through Zac's exceptional knowledge of herbs and spices, he taught me to create extraordinary flavors to enhance the food, and not over power it. It was a brilliant evening of cooking! Zac is easy going, yet very assured, and his ability to communicate is second to none. Remarkable job by a talented young man who will be continuing to educate us in the kitchen and most assuredly catering events for us. Bravo, Zac...Bravo!
We wanted something different for our garden party event and we got it!! It started quite impressively when their catering truck pulled up... The staff was attentive and efficient throughout our event. The food was fabulous. The thin crust pizzas were a hit! Staff did a great job keeping our beverage area well stocked and iced. I asked them to do this last minute and they were happy to help. Gabe always returned my calls and made our event stress free and fun! Great music too!!
I belong to a Gourmet Club and I had Tamara Predes from Soul Appetit prepare some nutritional food for us...it was incredible! She made some stuffed sweet potatoes that were outstanding. Her blood orange ice with lemon cashew cream is awesome!! I highly recommend her. Sharon Nunes
I found St. John Event Production through a corporate event. The food was delicious and I especially liked the ambience Michelle created with the themed decorations, serving dishes, etc. I am always on the lookout for great caterers and service people so that I can offer the best to my clients, which is the reason for this review. I am an event planner and was orchestrating a wedding for a very savvy bride. She wanted a sophisticated reception in a classy venue and had a strict budget. After meeting with my usual top two caterers, I met with Michelle and Schuyler to get their ideas and I am so glad I took a chance and chose a St. John. Michelle offered many options and worked with me to create the perfect combination of delectable food and beverage options as well as creative props to transform the venue from a safely neutral space into a romantic, inviting room that reflected the bride and grooms personalities. My success is dependent upon delivering a stress free experience for the bride that exceeds her expectations. Because I am admittedly a control freak, Im sure I drove Michelle crazy with my constant phone calls to make sure everything was on track, but she was a total pro and was always one step ahead of me. Now, some specifics .. we decided on setting up food stations throughout the venue rather than a buffet. The coconut shrimp and samosa eggrolls were a couple of the favorites along with the roasted pear with candied pecans salad, the super tender short ribs, and bacon-wrapped scallops, not to mention the scrumptious deserts that accompanied the wedding cake (vanilla ice cream with caramelized pineapple and crispy crumbled topping was to die for). St. John provided not only the food and décor items, linens, chairs, tables, plates and flatware, but also a full bar, including bartender! The staff was very attentive and jumped in to help the florist as well as the venue manager to make sure every detail was in place. I was really impressed with how well they went out of their way to take care of the guests. The bride commented on the extra attention they paid to her elderly parents, bringing them their favorite menu items and keeping their champagne glasses full. I will definitely be hiring St. John again. They helped me deliver a wonderful event while making my job so much easier!
Everything went great. What a wonderful experience. The servers were nest and courteous. The ice cream was served efficiently and there were many options for toppings. I would highly recommend for a fun and yummy event. Thanks Bay Are Ice Cream Catering. 👍
