Cultivating valued relationships with my clients through food + connection, creates nourishing longevity. Check out the garnish of the catering experience.

I just used Lisa Weintraub for the 4th time to cater an event. My events are usually between 30-70 people. She prepares beautiful, healthful food. Is efficient, on time, clean and exceedingly well prepared. Her support staff are equally dialed in. They get there early, leave a spotless kitchen when they leave.

Lisa’s food is DELICIOUS and she can prepare a wide variety, many different styles, from small bites to dinners. Her appetizers are exquisite. And she can prepare meat, fish, chicken or vegetarian — whatever you like. This most recent event we had numerous vegetarians so she accommodated them and the meat eaters — no small accomplishment.

And she’s just an absolute pleasure to work with.

I couldn’t recommend her more highly.

Plates By Lisa has always been the best to work with for a variety of our past events, big or small. Lisa consistently goes above and beyond our expectations from the presentation to the always organic and fresh food options. Her and her team are always prompt and create a great environment that we're excited to share with our clients!

We hired Lisa for a one-off dinner party and immediately hired her again. She is extremely detail oriented, her food is extremely delicious, and she effortlessly works to accommodate all dietary restrictions and preferences. From a small dinner to a large event, Lisa pulls it all together with a smile on her face and goes above and beyond to make sure that her guests have a memorable evening. We can’t recommend Lisa enough. Thank you for everything!

Lisa Is amazing!  She was prompt and she was professional. Everything she prepared for us was Art on a plate. My youngest daughter has food allergy restrictions and Lisa rolled up her sleeves and took on the challenge to deliver delicious gluten free and dairy free dishes that made our daughter feel special and not an outcast on meals that everyone enjoyed.  We have tried other personal chefs but hands down none compare to Lisa!  She listens to the client and wants to “WOW” you with taste and presentation. 

We love Lisa.  We are excited to use her for each and every event we can.

She will exceed all your expectations.

In August, I wanted to have another couple over for dinner. During normal times this is no big deal, but during covid it was not that simple. I decided to hire Lisa Weintraub to cater the dinner so I could be outside with my friends, social distanced, and not have to be running in and out to cook, serve, and clean up. The whole experience with Lisa was more than fabulous! From the first phone call she was super professional. We talked about options and planned a menu and when she got to my house, she literally took over. I did not lift a finger and felt like a guest at my own house.  She had beautiful menus at each place setting. The food was superb and the presentation was not only beautiful, but covid safe too! I was very impressed and my guests were too! We had so much fun. It felt like we were at a restaurant but much more intimate. I would highly recommend Lisa for any size party. She really knows what she’s doing and does it all with a smile! It is so clear that she loves what she does! I can’t wait to plan another event with her!


I have literally cancelled parties if Lisa isn’t available for catering! She is professional and hardworking! Her food is outstanding! What tops it off is her attitude and personality! A party is NOT a party without “Plates by Lisa”!!


No party is complete without Chef Lisa! Her food and service are always impeccable and elevate my events to the next level.


I can always depend on Lisa and her team to takeover and make my events less stressful for me.

Her professional and cheery demeanor makes everyone feel welcome. I absolutely recommend Chef Lisa to anyone that wants good food and great service!

We have hired “Plates By Lisa” for a variety of family meals involving 2-20 people for an engagement brunch, Thanksgiving and Passover and they have all turned out fantastic! Lisa is so pleasant, friendly and easy to work with and has an extensive knowledge of recipes as well. She offers many different food selections for appetizers, main courses and desserts and is willing to make changes if there are special needs or food allergies. She always delivers the food on a timely basis as promised and her pricing is reasonable as well. Most of all, the food tastes delicious. We highly recommend Lisa for any occasion.


I found Lisa through the web – pure serendipity. I had to go on a restricted diet and did not have the energy for shopping or preparing the necessary foods. Enter Lisa: She was flexible from the start and always open to feedback. I used her for years. Not only is cooking good but the food she sources is great quality because
much of it is from Farmers’ markets.

She has a compassionate and composed personality. During the pandemic shutdown, she offered to do my regular shopping for me so I wouldn’t have to go to the store.


A friend needed a caterer and I recommended Lisa. She loved her. Now many friends employ her for events they need catered. High recommendation indeed.


Lisa completely blew us away with the level of care and attention she put into planning our wedding weekend. From the start she was on top of everything from the menu, to the decorations, invites scheduling, location, you name it. Occasionally I would bring up an issue that could arise and every single time she was steps ahead of me and had any potential problems already covered. Our wedding weekend ended up being more perfect and delightful than anything we could have asked for one simple reason: no one is more caring or attentive to your needs than Lisa.

Thanks for sharing!

I was very fortunate to be invited to a dinner curated by Lisa. The food was delicious, fresh, and healthy, and I loved the inspirational conversational topics she provided along with the menu. During these pandemic times, it's truly a soul-surviving experience to be able to share a delicious meal with loved ones in a healthy environment. I am very grateful that Lisa was a part of that.


Lisa is a delight to spend time with and made our Malibu daycation a dream! She's attentive, professional, and skillfully accommodated our various dietary restrictions to create a delicious menu that everyone could enjoy together.


From the moment we arrived, Lisa and her team were pleasant and welcoming. They took care of every detail so we could relax. The gorgeous oceanfront property bright, light, with expansive multiple decks perfect for stress-free socializing.


From welcome cocktails and appetizers to dinner and dessert the dishes were perfectly timed, beautiful to look at, and tasted even better.


I highly recommend Plates by Lisa and the Malibu staycation offerings for a beautiful food experience!
