Baja's Tacos & Catering did a wonderful job for us catering our wedding. Everyone has complimented us on the food the most. I loved how they set up quick and got things rolling. The only thing is they were late to set up but they pulled through in the end. They also used easy to store containers so we could easily put away the left overs. We were eating tacos for 2 days after the wedding. The pricing is great and the food tastes amazing. Thank you!!

Lillian was great for our small wedding. The poke was on par with something you might find a Roy's, definitely some of the best I've had on the mainland. The lamb chop, sea bass, chicken, basically everything was incredible. All the guests loved the food. It's good luck for our marriage going forward that we had such good food on our wedding day!

Shawna is AMAZING!! She was the ONLY vendor we had for our wedding that didn't give us any difficulties. I emailed her asking to make changes and every time her response was "of course"! The food was amazing and her services were beyond outstanding. Shawna was flexible in creating our brunch menu and catered to a handful of vegans we had on our guest list. Even our non vegan guests enjoyed the vegan options! We were looking forward to left overs but everyone enjoyed the food so much, there were none!! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a caterer whether it be a wedding or any special event. I am definitely keeping her information in case I need a caterer again someday! If you want to be stress free about catering, choose Shawna! You won't be disappointed!!

June Sper catered my wedding in 1988, she made a waterfall of fruit, it was amazing and all the other food was amaizing. She never disappointed anyone. I attended another wedding she catered a few years back. A tower of swirling shrimp and many other beautiful designs. I don't know how she comes up with these ideas. Absolutely magnificent.

We hired La Mexicana Tacos to cater our destination beach wedding dinner. They were fast & easy to communicate with & gave me several options & add ons to our menu while maintaining a very reasonable price. The food was AMAZING! It was everything I wanted. We traveled to San Diego for our wedding, so a Mexican dinner was a MUST! They went above & beyond to cater to my every wish! Everybody raved about the food AND we had leftovers!!!!!! Thank you sooo much!!!!

Chef David did a fantastic job catering my daughter's wedding. He was so easy to work with. He helped us out with ideas to customize a delicious menu that satisfied vegetarians as well as non vegetarians. Food and service were exceptional. I recommend chef David to anyone. He will truly put 110% in making your event memorable.

For the past 10 years, a group of my college friends and I get together for a Christmas gathering. This was our first time having our dinner party catered and I'm so glad we connected with Joan. She is absolutely (!) fantastic to work with and she prepared an excellent Italian meal for us. We all couldn't stop raving about the food and we are all looking forward to working with her in the future.

The event isn't until June 25th but Murphy and Chef Geoff were very prompt in answering all my questions and accommodating for my situation. I am sure the wedding dinner will be wonderful! I will post again on June 26th.

Our plans to have our wedding meal prepared by our favorite restaurant fell thru 3 weeks before our wedding. I knew Christine Mcmaster as an excellent cook and had been to 2 private dinners catered by her. Quite anxious, I called her and she put me at ease with her assurances and suggestions to take my time and figure out what we would really like. Great advice! We chose Mediterranean food. Together with Chris we quickly settled on a menu. There were so many details but she handled it all from overseeing the table setting, shopping, deliveries and arranging table display. It was amazing I actually could relax. The meal was sumptuous elegantly prepared and plated all by Chris and her kitchen staff. Our dinner menu was: A simple greek salad, hummus, tzatziki, baba ganoush, roasted vegetables, flat bread Then Shawarma lamb, roasted chickens, and feta rice w/ pistachios. There were 35 people at the wedding meal and all the courses were on time and beautifully plated. The kitchen was quiet and when I went in everyone was smiling and extremely busy. Chris ran the kitchen in a quiet organized way that was contagious to all who worked there. Truly an amazing woman. Her sense of elegance shined thru both in the delicious food and its presentation. My husband and I will have lasting memories of Christine and how she stepped in and played an integral part in helping create our dream wedding. I highly recommend you have her cater any function. All you have to do is relax and enjoy it.

I had my bridal shower earlier this year in April, and was taken back by the beautiful dessert bar. Not only were the mini desserts and pastries delicious, the whole table was so pretty and detailed. I can’t say enough about all of the desserts, but the cake pops were to die for. You may think to yourself, “Ok, cake pops are so easy to make. Roll up cake into a ball and dip it in melted chocolate.” Nope! You have not had cake pop, until you’ve had this one. They were deliciously moist, with decorative floral designs that looked as if they came out of a magazine — they were that good! The chocolate covered strawberries were made so well — the chocolate had a nice, refreshing crisp, when you bit into it, with designs that were personalized for me. And last, but not least, the taro parfait. If you don’t know what taro is, you’ll need to look it up because the taro parfait was absolutely mouthwatering. I can go on and on about the cookies and the rest of the desserts, but I think you get the point. Did I mention that Mary used different candies and mediums in my wedding colors at the dessert bar? Thank you, Mary, for doing such a wonderful job!

Bruce Nishimwe is an outgoing, warm and enthusiastic caterer. He helped us plan and organize our wedding anniversary celebration in relatively little time. Prior to confirming, he let us taste the delicious food without charge, and provided good advice in planning. We enjoyed the staff who served, and our guests really enjoyed the food. He was also willing to learn about cutting cake for many guests, when cake was not on his menu. He brought wristbands for our guests since our event was in a public park, something we didn't think of ourselves, as a way to confirm that the people he served were actually our guests. We love Bruce's sunshine personality!

We had them cater our Wedding last weekend and they were a godsend. I could go on and on about how wonderful, caring, attentive and friendly they were. While planning they were a great source of advice and guidance. Chef Renee gracefully answered my parents' (numerous) questions basically being our caterer/wedding planner. Most importantly the food was delicious!! The passed hors d'oeuvres for cocktail hour were outstanding and everyone complimented the incredible dinner! To top it all off our cake was delicious and beautiful, Did I say delicious!! They also provided friendly and attentive bartenders and waitstaff. Everything was so good, our guests were so happy and full... we are still receiving compliments. The entire team was professional and so attentive and they really set up our tables beautifully! Chef Renee and her team went above and beyond our expectations and really made our day perfect! If you hire them you won't be disappointed!! We can't wait until the occasion comes to use them again!
