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!!

Mike did an amazing job catering my wedding for a very affordable price. He provided the food, bartenders & Italian water jugs for my guest. He prepared more than enough for my buffet style wedding and my guest were very satisfied. Mike is very easy to work with and made planning my wedding in 3 months less stressful.

I hired Jose for my wedding. His food was excellent and he was so professional at the tasting that we went to. Jose was very responsive and helpful with all of my questions/concerns over several months while I was planning my wedding. The caterer at a wedding has a huge job, and for my wedding day I felt like everything went so smoothly. His staff were so professional, friendly and dedicated to making all of our guests happy. He showed up on time and set up everything flawlessly and exactly as we had talked about. I am so happy that I found Jose for my wedding! I would highly recommend him and his staff for any event! Not only is it important to have a caterer that makes good food, but also have someone who cares about his clients and wants to provide the very best customer service and from my experience Jose did exactly this. He went above and beyond and we couldn't have been happier! Thank you Jose!

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!

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.

I highly recommend Chef Mumsie for a wedding that needs catering or for any event that involves great food and wonderful service. It is hard to describe the quality of good food other than to say that it was delicious and all the guests were raving about it. Appetizers included incredible onion pastry puffs that were the talk of more than one conversation I had that night. Salad was also a big hit, not something one usually expects to say about salad. The entree was talked, posted, and blogged about. Beautiful flatware and table settings were used, and the service was light-footed, courteous, and professional. We felt we were in a 5-star hotel, not our own backyard (which is where we actually were). Aside from all this, I want to mention how impressed we were with the hard work that was so evident. Chef Mumsie's staff was present from 2pm on toward 11pm and never stopped moving for a second. We were promised that we would not have to worry about a single event during the day and that was exactly what happened. Without even realizing that we had left so much in the hands of our caterers, we passed the night catching up with old friends, connecting people, taking photos, and meeting each other's friends from far off -- never once did we have to stop to check up on any details of any kind. Chef Mumsie seemed to be in eight places at once at any moment, and everything took care of itself as if by magic. There were no hidden charges, unexpected twists, or demands for attention. We are very impressed and grateful for their efforts in feeding and satisfying 80+ people in a somewhat confined space -- done with grace, speed, and invisibility. .. and deliciousness!

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!!!!

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.

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.

Vito, you did an amazing job catering Melissa's wedding. It obviously was a great day watching my little girl get married, and the food and fun atmosphere you created only added to it. I can honestly say the pizza was the best I've ever tasted and those jalapeño poppers were the talk of the night. I loved the set up. It was casual and elegant at the same time. Just great all around! Thanks so much, Annie

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!

    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!
