Chef Pete communicated well. He was responsive when I contacted him and was open to changing the menu. The meal was prepared by his sous chef, Russ. The food was exactly how I had envisioned and actually exceeded my expectations. I will hire him again when I come to Napa.

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!

Sat Khalsa represented himself as described on Thumbtack. He was very professional & easy to work with. His dishes are superb. Sat is not only a seasoned chef, but a very knowledgeable nutritionist. He is a perfect chef for me because I am a foodie to begin with, but I also have to lose weight & eat healthy due to inflammation from auto immune. I am so happy with the delicious meals he prepared for me. I asked him to come back & cook for me next week too. Thank you Sat.

We hired Made With Love (Debbie) to cook a meal for our group of 5 one evening at our Air B&B in Sonoma. It was awesome to come home after a day of wine tasting to a lovey home cooked meal. Debbie had appetizers ready for us when we arrived, and the house smelled delicious. There was more than enough food... we even cancelled our reservations at Ad Hoc the next night to enjoy the leftovers!

We hired Chef Sean to cook and serve at a dinner party for 8 ppl in our home. Our experience with Chef Sean was fantastic. He was extremely responsive during the menu planning process. He showed up early on the day of the event. He was completely organized, brought printed menus and all of his needed supplies, and the food he prepared was delicious. He was delightful with our guests and extremely professional and friendly with all of the service he provided during the dinner itself. Would definitely work with him again in the future.

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.

I've been fortunate to experience both formal and informal meals prepared by Graham. Not only is he a gifted and sophisticated chef with knowledge of foods, wines, and culinary techniques from around the world, but he also has a great ability to craft the perfect setting for a meal. He could fill an empty warehouse with warmth, romance, and a sense of something worth celebrating. Graham is committed to his craft and takes great pride in his work. You will not be disappointed.

Ania is easy to work with. She stays in contact through the entire process. She helps with menu suggestions or will follow your menu. She is able to accommodate special dietary requirements. She helps with wine pairing. She provides the rental plates and flatware. She provides quality ingredients. She and her staff arrive on time and prepare your meal on your time frame. They are attentive to all of your guests needs. All food was plated attractively and very tasty. They did a good job of cleaning up afterward, washing all of the glassware that I had rented as well as any of my personal equipment that they had used. My things were put away and dishwashers were loaded and running. The counters and sink were left clean. It was a good experience for our dinner party for 20.

The Dishes are so flavorful and delicately put together. I can tell a lot of time goes into preparing the dishes. I think what I like most is that all the ingredients are top shelf, and its prepared food that I can not get anywhere else at this level of quality. It's above restraunt standards. Especially impressed by the fact that they can hit the mark on so many dietary specific needs and still make it taste amazing! Get the Asian pear muffins! Or any of her famous baked goods! They will not disappoint.

I had Rainbow chef cater a baby shower. Lana was very helpful in the planning and menu selection and offered some great suggestions. The mother to be was on some food restrictions so Lana worked around that too. They prepared a nice mid day Mediterranean inspired meal with chicken lettuce cups, roasted vegetables with tahini sauce, a wonderful bruschetta, fruit salad and cupcakes in assorted flavors. The feedback on the food was amazing. Jenny showed up with the food and prepared it on my serving trays. She was on time and left my kitchen counter clean. I would highly recommend Rainbow chefs and will use them for future parties.

Lucas did a tremendous job for us. He accommodated last minute changes, dietary restrictions and additional guests. The food was superb. He personally delivered everything on Thanksgiving, quickly organized the meal for us, ensured everything was perfect and then excused himself. We had enough food for three times the number of people and had leftovers that saw us through the entire holiday weekend. All 14 of us heartily thank and recommend Lucas.

Everything about working with James was outstanding. I hosted a small dinner party for my family. Before the event, James suggested a couple menus based on our preferences. Communication before the dinner was excellent and clear. We all loved the food prepared--an arugula salad, chilean sea bass, and a lemon macaroon pie. He was also a pleasure to have in my house. Friendly, kind, and easygoing. I would definitely hire him again and highly recommend him.

There were 4 couples celebrating several 50th Birthdays and Zachary created the menu and prepared the food for all of us. The thought and time he put into the menu as well as the overall preparation were outstanding. Everyone in the group felt the same way. My only suggestion would be to hire an assistant, someone to help with food prep and table lay out, that way he can continue to focus on cooking and possibly move the night along a little better. Still having said that, overall it was a great experience and if we ever go back to Napa again we will be calling Zachary!!

Dan did a great job on a birthday dinner I hosted recently at my home. He showed up on time, prepared and served a delicious meal (the herb rubbed pork loin is incredible), and left my kitchen tidy and clean. I'll definitely be hiring Dan again in the future!

Chef Sacha has prepared meals for me on several occasions. Whether a special event or dinner party, he always takes great care to ensure that the ingredients used are in season, and of quality. He is understanding and willing to accommodate any food allergies or aversions, and provides options for those with specialty diets. His twist on French classics creates flavor combinations that are tasteful and surprising, while his take on American bistro fare elevates your childhood favorites. His meals are always delicious, and the presentation impeccable. I highly recommend Chef Sacha for any of your culinary needs.

Ona Paek is a professional chef who prepared for our family an exquisite meal. The meal represented the regional fare of Korea and opened with an excellent kimchi seafood pancake. This was followed by a fresh salmon in a special orange sauce that really enhanced the flavor of the fish. Her talent of fresh healthy cooking and professional presentation made for a delightful home cooked meal. Additionally she is happy to share her passion and experience of food prepared to exacting standards.
