I was at a catered affair Sunday and they were the caterers. I have never had such fabulous catered food! Not only was the food great, they were mini works of art! Usually don't eat most catered food because they're same and tasteless. I, unfortunately, ate too much! The staff was also very, very nice! If you want s perfect caterer, this is the company for you

We had the flavor chef cater our intimate wedding in June in Oceanside and we're beyond impressed! Amazing food, friendly and professional staff, competitive pricing, creative with displays and all around PERFECT! We could not have been more pleased with choosing them to cater our wedding. They were quick to respond and very attentive. Look no further! They are amazing! 10 stars!

I don't normally take the time to write reviews, but I felt The Flavor Chef deserved a 5 star acknowledgement for the outstanding service they provided for an event I organized for @ 80 guests, because I received so much great feedback from the guest about Chef Lance's menu. The food, presentation and service was expertly executed for an excellent price. I am grateful to have reaped the rewards of The Flavor Chef's hard work and I will use them on my next event!

We used Flavor Chef for the first time last Friday. Our office Holiday party for 50 people is all about the food. The food was great, fresh, and nicely seasoned and great choice for everyone. We had beef and fish and both were delicious. Thank you Flavor Chef for making our party a hit.
