Chefelle Testimonials

“Just wanted to thank you again for the outstanding food and service last night.  You far exceeded any expectations we had.  Everyone raved about the food and the service.  We’re still raving about it today.  Thank you so much for making the party a huge success.”

“Loretta Vigil and the Chefelle team went above and beyond to cater my wedding of approximately 230 guests in June 2013.  Prior to the wedding Loretta followed up with me on multiple occasions to make sure that the menu was just right.  Then at the wedding I was blown away by the quality and taste of the food.  I’ve never been to a wedding where the food ACTUALLY tasted good and didn’t seem mass produced. It was as if we were eating in a gourmet restaurant, and was not the typical wedding fare.  Months after the wedding my guests still compliment me about everything the Chefelle team served, from the absolutely addicting appetizers to the perfectly moist fish and chicken.  Not only was the food a hit among all of my guests, the service was also top notch.  Loretta’s staff was pleasant and helpful throughout the event, eliminating any worry for my husband and me.  We would recommend the Chefelle team to anyone we know – for personal chef services or large events because they truly made my wedding stress free and unforgettable.  Now that I am married I will be ordering meals from Chefelle on those nights that I do not feel like cooking.  Thank you Chefelle!”

“Chef Loretta has catered several events for me, including intimate gourmet dinner parties and elegant engagement celebrations. Chefelle’s delicious appetizers and sumptuous meals are attractively presented by a superb service staff, and the quality never disappoints my friends and business associates. The dataki and the gingered beef appetizers are my personal favorites, and Loretta can design a menu for any occasion and budget.  I never have to lift a finger when I hire Chefelle, she takes care of every detail and always leaves my kitchen neat and clean.  I highly recommend Chef Loretta and her staff for your next event.”

“Chefelle has done a variety of events for us and they have all worked out great.  Small dinners, larger dinners, cocktail receptions with hors d’oeuvres, the food and service have always been exceptional.

When you’re ordering drinks, remember the pomegranate martinis and no matter what you do, Get the Dataki!” – A. & A., San Marino, CA



“I met Chef Loretta over 13 years ago after reading an article about her personal chef services in the local newspaper. At the time I had two young sons and was working 5 days a week, 14 hours a day, leaving me little time to prepare healthy meals for my family. Chef Loretta came into our lives and solved my mealtime dilemma in the most delicious manner imaginable!

Over the years we moved from utilizing Loretta’s personal meal prep services to using her catering services for the many social and philanthropic events we’ve hosted at our home over the years including many weddings and one event at which former Governor Schwarzenegger was the honored guest.

Loretta and her efficient staff have consistently dazzled our guests with her amazing array of appetizers, wonderful entrees, delicious desserts and, importantly, their professional, friendly service.

In all the years we’ve worked together, Loretta has never let me down and I would urge you to give Chefelle a try for your next event!”

”When I engaged Loretta to cater a very special dinner party for about 75 guests, I was looking for an easy planing process, good food, and no worries on the day of the event.  What I received was great care in planning the menu and coordinating rentals, absolutely extraordinary delicious food that my friends are still raving about a year later, and the most smooth preparation process and lovely service one could possibly imagine.  I could not have wished for a better experience working with Loretta and her staff, and I can’t wait to use her services again for my next big event!”
