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.

We used Cazadores for our Startup Weekend. We reserved three meals: a lunch, and two dinners. The Indian buffet was delicious! It catered our vegan, vegetarian, and omnivore needs! Everyone raved about the Indian food! We also received a Mexican taco dinner. Similarly, Evan and his team grilled the meat and had hot tacos with all the fixings! There was even churros filled with caramel and vanilla custard! Bomb!!! Everyone also enjoyed the Chinese food. It was hard to resist!

Debbie made the whole process of having our mothers Celebration of Life Service catered as simple as possible. Her food presentation was flawless and we received numerous complements on the quality, variety, and quantity of the food. If we ever have need of a caterer again, we will definitely contact Debbie as our first choice!

This was my first time using a caterer and trying Thumbtack. I have to say this was a very positive experience. Stephanie was easy to work with and seemed to understand what I needed. The food was very good and the service was too. Her assistant stayed to help me set up and serve, then she cleared the food and put the leftovers in to-go portions. I was not expecting this but it sure made the clean up go easy. Thank you for making our event very special.

We had a buffet dinner party for 27 family and friends. Deborah provided the food -- it was wonderful! We had appetizers including 3 different kinds of mini-quiche and absolutely decadent deviled eggs with bacon and then entrees of flank steak (all gone!) and lemon chicken (so tender!), roasted vegetables, a farmers salad and garlic bread. Beautiful, healthy and delicious. The staff was very good and left my kitchen as they found it. A great experience from a very good caterer. Thanks, Deborah!

Had a Christmas Party for 30 people in my home. Food was prepared on-site. As guests arrived first and caterers second, the kitchen was full of guests nibbling on appetizers. Alisa and her assistant blended right in working around guests. The food was delicious! All guests commented about how wonderful the food was and how pleasant Alisa and her assistant were. Clean-up was provided, and they did a great job at that too. It made enjoying guests and myself fantastic! Planning for the event was seamless, organized and expeditious! When I have another party for my 50th this year, Passionate Plates and Alisa will be on "speed-dial"!

Chet prepared an awesome menu for our 50 person cocktail party. After a quick phone call, Chet took the theme of the party and crafted a menu that really fit what we were looking for. There were hardly any leftovers, so the portions were perfect. Chet is really responsive and highly communicative, making him really easy to work with. The only snag was that he ran into some day of oven issues (which can't be predicted), but was able to get us the food in the nick of time. I would definitely recommend Chet to anyone looking for an awesome caterer who is easy to work with, and prepares delicious food! Thanks for making our party a success!

I had a great experience with hiring Kitchenina as our caterers for an event with 40 people. The communication was always prompt, polite and friendly. They did a great job on the day of the event to ensure that the food was delivered on time (despite the traffic/weather conditions) and made my job as the event organizer much easier. I would definitely work with Kitchenina again in the future, and regret that I did not take photos of the food! (Thanks for the brownies as well!)

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.

Matt and his wife Nina did a wonderful job catering my small backyard wedding for 20 people. Their food was absolutely delicious and everyone loved it! Very professional with day of services and were both very kind and welcoming people. Generally pretty responsive with emails/messages. Very receptive to everything that I wanted for the event and delivered on all my requests. We rented dinnerware and glassware from them and it made everything a breeze! Such a pleasure to work with. Overall was a good experience. I would love to eat their food again!!

Dawn and Marty were simply amazing. Marty is the chef and is more passionate about food then any chef I've ever met. He went beyond the extra mile to prepare amazing food for our wedding. The quality of the food and the the caliber of service provided by Dawn was outstanding. We live over 300 miles away from where the wedding was held so we had to hire our caterer remotely. We were worried about that at first, but Dawn put us completely at ease. She arranged for a site visit and then a private tasting at their facility. That was AMAZING! Appetizers, main courses, desert AND wine. What a great preview. Dawn helped us coordinate our order with the rental company and gave lots of helpful tips. Marty accommodated a special request my bride wanted which was to replace the traditional wedding cake with a tiered 60 cup Creme Brûlée desert tower! Wow... incredible. I heard several guest snuck two helpings :) Dawn and Marty were not just Caterers, they became family to us as they helped make the day a huge success! We would absolutely recommend their service to others and will use them again!

Angela is an exceptional caterer! We hired her for a long (10 day) job for a production crew, serving multiple meals for VERY hungry people. I heard consistently that they were the best meals the crew had ever had on a job. She was very thorough in her choices, and made it obvious that she takes pride in what she cooks, plans, and serves. We plan to make Angela our go-to caterer for ALL future jobs. As much as I would love to tell you to stay away so we can hoard her...you HAVE to hire Angela and try her meals for yourself!

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.

I worked with Dennis at Liberation Foods to cater my son's 6th birthday party. The food was DELICIOUS. My only regret was that we only had 1 hour of food time (due to the venue, not Liberation)! :) Highly recommend and will definitely use again.
