If there was a sixth star i would use it! Carolina is hands down the most understanding and flexible person to work with! I have used her before for corporate event with a headcount of 300+ and it was always phenominal ! This time we were needing catering for a Celebration Of Life for my wife's grandpa, It was small ~100 people. We wanted just appetizers, drinks and desserts. After selecting our appetizers, drinks and cupcakes we were sent the invoice. She included full service for two hours, she didn't want us to worry about anything. We have someone who is allergic to gluten and Carolina was more than accommodating. The day of service the caterers showed up EARLY!!!! How awesome! They were ready to go and I showed them where to set up and reminded them about the allergy. The display was amazing, it was so beautiful and more than we could ask for (pictures). The servers were on top of it, the food was being plated as people took it to make sure it was fresh (no chaffing dishes)! When the allergy plate needed to be made they changed thier gloves and went above and beyond to serve. We got rave reviews on the food from everyone! 10/10 for these guys! They are rock stars.Pictured:GF Turkey Meatballs w/orange cranberry sauceGreek SaladHawaiian Skewers Pizza BitesIced teaWaterSpa Water (variety of flavors)Lemonade More...

Boris and Carolina go above and beyond by providing delicious food and excellent personalized service. If you want boring bland food this is not the caterer for you! Every bite is packed with amazing flavors and the portions are more than generous.This is the second time we've hired them to cater an event and we will definitely hire them again in the future!I highly recommend them, you will be very happy!

I am so glad My husband and I found Gourmet Lovers Catering for our wedding last year. Carolina went above and beyond to make sure our wants and needs were met! Even a year later, Gourmet Lovers Catering continues to impress us with their attention to detail and exceptional customer service. They provided us with a delicious anniversary cake. My husband and I would recommend them for a small gathering or a large scale event. Not only do they have a knack for flavor, their presentation is impeccable! Thank you Carolina and team for making us feel valued. We appreciate you! More...

I could not be more impressed with this catering service. They were constantly in communication with me, they showed up on time, they help set up when they did not have to, and the food was delicious. We had very little left over, everyone really enjoyed the food. I wish I would've had just a little more leftover because it was so good.Are use them for my daughter's bridal shower and we will be using them for the wedding also! More...

By far the absolute Best Customer Service and Food!  I coordinate several events throughout the year for  a staff of 130, and I cannot began to explain how incredibly happy I am to have  met Carolina (owner) last year. She has made my  life so much easier by not having to worry  about food. I simply know Gourmet Lovers will not let me down, I know my delivery will be  on time and everyone will  love the food.  Carolina is absolutely amazing, her chefs are amazing, the food is amazing, customer service is amazing!!  Thank you Gourmet Lover for always coming through and for always working with my budget and last minuet requests.

So this review is LONG over due but I did want to say THANK YOU to Gourmet Lovers Catering for helping me with my wedding. Carolina was amazing shes passionate about her work which really shows when you talk to her. She helps you figure things out when you're not sure how things should go. When we did our tasting she didnt rush us at all and let me and my then fiance take our time to decide what we liked most. She was really flexible with our schedules as well even it was just for a payment she was there for us. We ended up getting a naked vanilla cake with the raspberry filling with berries all around which was delicious! For dinner we did chicken picata, mixed veggies and strawberry salad which was also delicious  price wise it was a really good deal, the cake was free except for the berries on top but still though how often do you get a free wedding cake with your dinner package?! Now a year later shes doing our anniversary cake and she isnt charging us at all. So thank you Carolina and Gourmet Lovers for everything you did before, during and after our wedding! More...

Gourmet Lovers Catering did an amazing job for our wedding. FIVE STARS!!! My wife and I tried several catering options - we loved the food tasting with GLC and we know we made the right decision to go with their services. They were always professional, punctual and polite to work with. Their food presentation is beautiful and the food was delicious. This is a quality business that makes quality food and I am happy to give them a shining review. I worked in restaurants for over 15 years and I know how challenging it can be to get 180 people fed with plates going out while the food is hot all at once. The people at GLC are all-stars in the industry. The service staff was incredible, they dressed professionally, looked clean, they kept the tables bussed after each course and everything went off without a hitch, everything was flawless and the food was incredible. If I ever need catering services of this quantity and quality again I would - without hesitation - absolutely come back to them. Thank you very much for making our wedding tasty and stress free. We're looking forward to that anniversary cake up the road! Cheers!!!! More...

I was so happy we picked Gourmet Lovers Catering to cater for my 50th Birthday Party last night!  Since it was a dance party, we ordered a variety of appetizers, cake an a couple of mini desserts, and couldn't have been happier with the turnout. <br><br>Carolina was the most helpful in the planning process, helping with my selections, making suggestions on popular items and identifying gluten free options for some guests, adjusting quantities, as well as helping with table and linen rentals.  She even had a great recommendation for a bartender!  Carolina was always available for questions, changes, very professional, and made the process very painless.<br><br>Boris and his team arrived on time and the setup was very smooth.  The servers were very attentive and kept passing trays, making sure everyone was offered an array of appetizers.  The selections were very tasty and we all really enjoyed them.  The only thing I would have liked different was for some items that were tray passed to be served on little plates rather than grabbed, such as the stuffed mushrooms which can get a little messy.  But otherwise service was flawless.<br><br>The cake and mini dessert cups were amazing!  I send a very rough design of the cake I wanted to Carolina, and they executed it beyond my expectations!  And it was delicious! (we picked marbled cake with chocolate ganache and italian meringue icing).  I should have stuck to Carolina's initial suggestion of just a 1/2 sheet for 50 guests a lot of guests don't eat cake (pity :) so the extra 1/4 sheet I decided to order just in case was too much.  Good thing I love cake!  The mini s'mores and banana fosters were very popular.  Carolina even agreed to make the s'mores gluten free.<br><br>The 2 servers Sofia and Gustavo were amazing, making sure we always had what we needed throughout the evening.  They even helped us tear down, clean up and organize everything once the party was over.  It was such a treat!

Where do I begin? Gourmet Lovers is AMAZING! We got married 2/23/19 with 110 guests. I had narrowed it down to 2 catering companies and decided to go with Gourmet even before trying the food because Carolina treated us like we were family. She was always available by email and phone. She worked with our budget.  She made it such a stress free process!  <br><br>She even made time for us the day before Thanksgiving to meet with her and go over a tentative plan for the wedding. And even though the holiday season is crazy, Carolina and her husband made time for us to do a tasting BEFORE Christmas!! Talk about phenomenal customer service! <br><br>We told Carolina a head of time some options we wanted to try out for the food tasting and of course they cooked us even more so we could get a better idea of what we wanted!  The food was AMAZING :) We asked her if we could just come by and have dinner at their place every week!! <br><br>Wedding guests were coming up to my husband and I during the wedding and telling us how amazing the food was and how incredible the cake tasted!! <br><br>Gourmet lovers had excellent service from start to finish. They integrated seamlessly with the flow of all the activity on the big day. They were beyond professional. A big shout to Gustavo who took care of my husband and I the entire night. He made sure we ate, drank, and always had what we needed. <br><br>They truly deserve more than 5 stars!<br>Thank you Gourmet Lovers for making our day perfect! More...

One of the best decisions I made was having Gourmet Lovers Catering cater my wedding. Every single thing was delicious! We received so many compliments that day on the tastiness of the passed appetizers and the delicious dinner. My now-husband and I were in heaven at the food trial. It was so hard to decide on our final dishes since everything was great. Our dinner was actually one of the main things I was looking forward to at our wedding :)<br><br>I also cannot speak highly enough of Carolina's professionalism and flexibility. I went in not knowing what we wanted, or how everything was going to work but Carolina was patience, worked me through multiple calls and emails and let me know this important part of our wedding was in good hands. <br><br>Her and the staff hustled the whole day!

After having such a great experience (and great prices) with Gourmet Lovers for my parent's 40th anniversary, they were my go to once I was engaged to be married.  I had them do appetizers, cupcakes and punch for 250 people at my church and then a separate full family dinner for 95 people.  Absolutely everything was wonderful!  My aunt had 4 cupcakes and didn't even make it to all the 3 different types of cupcakes!  Apparently the ones she tasted were too good to move on from.  The cupcakes and the cake were very moist and tasted just amazing.  The food was also very flavorful and done just perfectly and the service was great.  I am very happy with Carolina (the baker) and her husband Boris (the chef).  I gave up more control for my wedding than I did for my parent's anniversary and I wasn't disappointed at all...and I was much less nervous.  As before, I would highly recommend this company.  I plan on having Carolina make a small cake for our 1 year anniversary because the top tier that was supposed to be saved didn't make it through the week :-) More...
