    The caterer nearly an hour late, and guests had to stand outside for about 20 minutes while food was placed in serving areas. The food was okay, but the caterer did not provide chicken which was agreed upon. The "real fruit filling" in the wedding cake was almost non-existent. No actual fruit, just a thin layer in between the cake layers like icing. Everything was adequate but rather underwhelming.

    The food was terrific and the service was very friendly and professional. Also, Karen was easy to work with, and very helpful with making our food selections. We would definitely hire Luna's again.

    Wow. Karen and her team blew me away. First of all, don't waste your time going around to traditional "caterers" because they are severely over priced for food that isn't even that special. From the start, Karen was interested in tailoring a menu specifically to what we wanted with our budget in mind and her prices don't include any ridiculous "$800" planning fees. She had us in for a tasting where the food was out of the park. I had sent her a few ideas of a menu and she made them her own and they were delicious. And to be honest from the tasting to the wedding, I was wishing I could have had some of what she had made for us that day. Good thing the wedding was just around the corner. Come wedding day, Karen had her team there early to get the tables set up ready to go before guests arrived. Everyone loved the passed apps and she had our meal (for the bride and groom) ready for us when we arrive so we could eat before greeting guests. One thing I told Karen was I needed and had to have HOT food and she sure delivered. Everything was hot and exactly as we had hoped. She helped make our special day perfect without breaking the bank. I hope to have the opportunity of working with her again.

    So Impressed!
    Our whole team was so very impressed with the quality and quantity of the food provided today. Karen was so very easy to work with and it was an absolute pleasure working with her, especially when compared with other local caterers. We will absolutely be working with Luna's Kitchen again. Thank you!

    Karen Luna is AMAZING! She is quick to reply, has incredible tasting food, great prices, and an awesome can-do attitude. She came out early for a tasting and to see where our building was (huge plus) and arrived early with everything needed.

    Wonderful food and service. Karen went out of her way for me and brought me ice water while I was waiting outside for the DJ to start our first dance. Karen later went and prepared our food and set it at our table to eat since we were too busy to go through the buffet line. Fantastic service!

    Luna's Kitchen --best price and QUALITY for wedding reception
    Karen is Awesome!! As a Mother of the Bride, the #1 concern is the budget. I did a lot of research trying to find the best quality for the best price. By far, Luna's Kitchen is one of the most reasonably priced caterers in the area. Karen provides all her own dishes, glasses, etc and also has available bar tenders. So yes, yes, yes--definitely the best price!! And her food was EXCELLENT!! I heard so many complements during the reception from the guests. Her family and workers were also friendly and professional. Thank you Karen for meeting and exceeding all expectations!!

    Best Wedding Meal I've Ever Had
    Karen and her team went above and beyond to make our day perfect! She's truly a life saver and a one stop shop. We didn't have to worry about anything once it was in her hands. And the Brisket... Oh, man! Definitely one of the best Briskets I've ever had. Wedding meals are usually hit or miss for me, but this one was perfect! Everyone is still raving about the food! Luna's Kitchen absolutely deserves more than 5 stars. Thank you, Karen and the rest of your team, for everything! Shannon & David

    We selected Luna's Kitchen as our wedding day caterer. Let me say this: They were incredible! The price they offer is unbeatable. They were easy to work with, especially with all the changes I kept making! We had a family style meal and it was delicious and the food was bountiful! Everyone raved about our food and well, this is the most talked about part of a wedding! Our bartender was great! The servers were helpful, quick, and hard working. Karen, thank you so much for your wonderful food and service. I would recommend Luna's Kitchen to everyone!

    I helped plan a wedding and we hired Karen and Jaime to cater for about 150 guests. We were on a tight budget and they where able to give us some great options. It was a pleasure working with them and all the guest left full and satisfied! Karen was great and responding to all my questions in a timely manner.

    Holiday Sit-down dinner for 14. Prime rib, shrimp cocktail, tossed salad, twice baked potatoes, green beans with silvered almonds, rolls and mini strawberry shortcake. Food was delicious, a little slow as to not being accustomed to my kitchen, not knowing where things were and not asking but with this large of dinner party it was hard for caterers to get my attention. Caterers only big problem was not leaving early enough (after we discussed it) to get through the extremely heavy traffic and arrive on time which threw dinner off from scheduled time. Since everyone attending were friends, it just worked out that we had more time to talk but it caused the caterers to cook and reheat dinner items because they had gotten cold waiting in traffic getting here. It ended up working out well, a good time was had by one and all and as I early mentioned, the food was delicious- far above what we had expected. We will highly recommend Lunas catering and also will use them again in any future catering needs.

    Karen has great ideas and intentions; however, the execution of our holiday party fell short. The team appeared to be 'in the weeds' most of the evening, and did not have the staff to properly service a party of our size (around 300). The agreed upon menu was also not fully executed. All in all, the guests seemed to enjoy themselves, although they had to wait quite some time for food and beverages. Perhaps this was just an off day for them, as previous reviews were all very good. I recommend they really look at preparation and staffing next time for a more fluid event.

    Karen catered the sides for our Thanksgiving dinner. We had 30 family members to feed at our home and we needed someone to make all of our sides for us. Karen arranged a tasting for us in advance and made the exact dishes that we had requested. Everything she makes is gluten-free, low calorie and from scratch. It is all absolutely delicious. The food arrived earlier than expected but was still warm by the time we ate two hours later. All of the food was a complete hit. People were going back for seconds and thirds, with plenty of food leftover for us to enjoy in the days since. We will have Karen cater all of our Thanksgivings for years to come!

    Although I have not yet had the pleasure of Luna's Kitchen catering my wedding (which they will be doing in early December), I did have Karen Luna make and deliver breakfast tacos for my groom's weekend. I could not be more pleased with everything. The food was delivered with ease, was hot and ready to eat immediately, and was out of this world delicious. We went with a wide variety of choices, from egg and cheese to egg and sausage, bacon, chorizo, barbacoa, and more. AMAZING!!! I HIGHLY recommend you take advantage of the opportunity to hire Luna's Kitchen for your own need(s).

    We were in need of a caterer last minute (less than 48 hours notice,) and Luna's Kitchen saved the day. Karen and Jaime were lovely to work with, making everything as stress-free and easy as possible. They crafted a menu for our day long event based on what we noted we needed, attended a very last minute site tour, and helped to execute beyond our expectations. Reasonably priced with great food and stellar service. We'll be using Luna's Kitchen again!
