Private Dinner Reviews:

A++ Simi is positively amazing! After extensive research and reading her litany of glowing reviews, I selected Simi as the chef for our large extended family Thanksgiving feast. From the moment of our first interaction several months ago, Simi was consistently delightful to work with. She was extraordinarily creative, responsive, resourceful and professional in partnering with me to create a scrumptious menu that was perfectly suited to a wide range of diverse palates and dietary restrictions. Every one of her food creations were decadently delicious and her service was beyond exceptional. One of our special guests stated, "It was my best Thanksgiving ever in 75 years!" Suffice to say that my husband and I are totally over the moon to have chosen Simi as our chef! Our entire experience was beyond amazing. We cannot wait for another special occasion to work with Simi who is clearly in a league of her own.  - Mercedes W., Sonoma


FANTASTIC!!! Wanderlust Catering prepared dinner for our immediate family to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. The whole experience from start to finish was fun and easy. Chef Simi was available to discuss the menu and finalized our choices and the pricing very quickly. And the event itself was fantastic! Every dish was delicious and the service with unobtrusive but attentive. We can't recommend Chef Simi highly enough and are already thinking about when we could hire her again. 5 stars across the board. - Jennifer L., Lafayette


Simi was amazing! From the beginning with communication and follow through, to the creation and execution of a delicious meal, to the immaculate way she left the kitchen. Chef Matt was fantastic too. They created a wonderful evening for our friends and family - our guests could not stop raving. She made me look like a star and what else can you ask for?! Cannot wait to use her again. Definitely recommend. - Marlis B., Santa Rosa


We hosted a group of 27 adults and children for a mother's day dinner. Simi worked with us to understand the low-key vibe we wanted, and created a varied menu that worked for adults and picky children as well as some food allergies. She and Chef Matt served an AMAZING cocktail and appetizers by the pool while the kids swam and then served a buffet dinner that was a huge hit! Everyone remarked how delicious the food was, how sweet she is, and that they are looking forward to the next event she caters for us. Not only is Simi a talented and creative chef, she is a pleasure to have around. Thanks, Simi!  - Nina B., Mill Valley


Chef Simi was incredible! All my guests said this was one of the best meals they ever had! She was friendly, efficient, and left the kitchen spotless! We all applauded her when she left. Absoutely no hesitation recommending her. - Jairam K., Danville


Wedding Reviews:

Simi and her staff did an absolutely amazing job on our wedding. Everything was perfect. Not only was the food incredible, but the service was impeccable. We received rave reviews from everyone in attendance. She and her team made everything so elegant and carefree. It really made the event spectacular. I never once worried about a thing. We are so happy we picked her! We definitely know who to turn to for our next party! Thank you, Simi. - Laura M., Saratoga


Simi was amazing. She catered my wedding, and it was so easy to work with her. She accommodated all the guests' dietary restrictions. I needed to do my own rentals so I could decorate my ceremony space, but she reviewed the invoices to make sure we would be all set with the tableware. On the day of the wedding, the five-course dinner she served became the centerpiece of our reception. Every course was delightful, but her lamb was absolutely amazing. We had several French guests who said that the lamb was the best they had ever tasted. We decided not to do a wedding cake, so I requested that she make a dessert with nutella incorporated in it. She made a nutella mousse that just blew everyone away. Simi's staff was so attentive and efficient. They really made the wedding even more special. I would absolutely hire Simi for any events in the future.  - Anica J., San Francisco


Simi's work is outstanding--we feel incredibly lucky to have had the chance to work with her. She gave us tremendous, personalized attention to help us create a menu that reflected our tastes and style. And the food was so delicious, our guests couldn't stop raving about it. On top of all this creative energy, Simi is an organizational powerhouse. For all the details, timelines, dependencies, and last-minute changes, she is 100% ON IT. We felt very confident having her in our corner. - Vanessa S., San Francisco


Chef Simi and her crew cooked for our intimate wedding party. From the very beginning Chef Simi was so easy to work with and very personable and professional. I explained what I envisioned but didn't have any concrete ideas. Chef Simi was able to create the perfect meal plan. As the date came closer, the guest count grew and Chef Simi was able to accommodate with ease, adding more staff to ensure a smooth day. Chef Simi is a calming person who works with confidence. You never noticed the staff being there. However they were always there when you needed anything! All the food was flawless and beautiful. The guests were definitely wowed by the experience and it really made our wedding day. Even weeks after the wedding, guests are still commenting on the amazing food! A truly amazing experience and I look forward to enjoying an anniversary dinner cooked by Chef Simi in the future. - Zara W., Dillon Beach
