"I called on Wednesday p.m. and asked for a veggie to serve 35 that I would pick up on Friday p.m. I needed to take it in the car for a 5 hour trip to my niece's" baby shower on Saturday.
was very professional and helpful. They told me how to pack the tray while in the car so it would arrive crisp and juicy. I followed their directions; they arranged the tray beautifully (carrot sticks had wet paper towels on them, which I removed before serving.) and we got many compliments on how nice the tray looked and how fresh and good the veggies were. And, they were! The cucumbers tasted fresh from the garden. The carrots sticks were juicy. Everything was arranged attractively. There were many compliments on the dill dip. I could have made a nice tray, but I have had recent surgery and thought this would be challenging for me at this time. The tray was fantastic, really I couldn't have done better. When I went to pick up the tray the store was filled as usual with Friday p.m. shoppers waiting in line at the meat counter. When I told one of the counter workers that I was there to pick up a tray, I was served immediately even though the
people were gone. This was a positive experience in every way.
rocks!

"We had a surprise birthday party and the caterers came and set up everything and the food was good and hot and looked great and tasted great. The servers did an" excellent job throughout the whole event. We had one of the servers to work as a bartender for us and that was very nice. Overall the event was a huge success and that was all because of the
. They set up everything, brought the disposable plates, silverware, napkins, cups, etc. and then cleaned up and took everything away with them and that was nice. The birthday party was a huge success and everyone enjoyed themselves. We will use the caterers again at our next event.

This is the third time we've hired
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
Company to cater an event in our home, and since it's been a while since my last review of this amazing company, I wanted to write an update. In March of this year,
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
catered a wedding reception in our home for approximately 50 people for my dearest friend. It was amazing! The food was delicious, the service attentive but non-intrusive, and the bride and groom were thrilled with how everything turned out, as was I. When we decided to have a Celebration of Summer party, I knew that
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
would be my only call. Because she was unavailable on the first date that I chose, I selected another date because I wasn't going to use anyone but
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
Company. We chose the same menu as that we'd had for the wedding reception because everything was so delicious.
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
and her colleague,
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
, arrived at our home 90 minutes before the event. They immediately got to work, fine tuning the table setup, putting out the bottles of wine, organizing their work area, and leaving me with absolutely nothing to do an hour before the party began. You can't put a price on that peace of mind. Throughout the party,
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
worked on the food prep to make sure the serving dishes on the table were never empty, and
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
did an amazing job of ensuring everyone had drinks, napkins, etc. The service truly is first rate. Nothing - and I mean nothing - was overlooked. They were everywhere, overseeing everything, and yet they were unobtrusive. I don't know how they managed to pull that off, but they did so with warmth and professionalism. At the end of the evening, the dishwasher was loaded, the trash taken out to the garage, the leftovers placed in containers in the refrigerator, and all I had to do was put my feet up and relax. The perfect way to end the perfect party! When I'd reviewed this company previously, I'd said that they would not be my first call, but they would be my only call. With each event that they cater for us, that feeling is reinforced. I honestly cannot rave enough about the quality of the food, the service, the warmth of the staff, and the lovely feeling of knowing that your guests are being catered to and made to feel so welcome in your home. We have 2 - 3 parties a year, with an average of 45 guests at each event. We wouldn't even consider having a party without
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
and
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
there, making sure that everything is perfect. I'm grateful to Angie's List because that's where I'd found this company, and I'm grateful to
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
and
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
for all that they did to ensure our event was a huge success.

Our experience with
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
was extremely positive. We wanted a
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
company that would be able to help us choose a menu, rent and bring in all of the supplies they needed, provide a full buffet dinner and then have everything picked up after the wedding. After contacting several
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
companies we chose to work with
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
.
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
Hicks helped us from start to finish. Planning an outdoor wedding at home for 200 guests with varying food preferences can be very challenging. Having vendors that understand those challenges and then be able to meet them was very important to us. A torrential rain, swirling winds and the mud pit that our yard became shortly before the wedding made for extremely difficult circumstances.

and his entire staff did an excellent job of preparing, serving and cleaning up despite those difficulties. We received compliments on the food and service from many of our guests. I would highly recommend

was a pleasure to work with from the first day that I contacted her. She has a passion for what she does and it shows in her work. We spent a month or so planning the party and deciding on the menu. She worked with me to create a menu that was enjoyed by all- not easy to do in a family of 22! She guided me through the process of ordering the rentals which was a big help. The party was fantastic not only because of her food but the service as well. She timed everything perfectly so the food was always there when we wanted it and the service was handled with the needs of our family in mind. I would recommend

to anyone without hesitation.

My baby shower could not have been more perfect. The ladies took great care of my guests and the food was absolutely AWESOME!! We had the Chicken Salad Crustinis, crabcakes, meatballs, pecan crusted Chicken, texas two step cheese spread, and fresh fruit and my guests are still talking about how good the food was. I will be using

again for my next event. Thank you for making my day as special as it was.

did a wonderful job
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
our wedding. The event was held at our home and we had about 60 guests. He met with us several months before the event to do a sample tasting and gave us lots of ideas on how to arrange the seating. He was flexible on the menu, and allowed us to keep the final headcount open until a week before the event. The service was wonderful, and the staff was great. My guests all loved the food. I plan to use him in the future.

catered our wedding in September and we could not be more thrilled as to how everything turned out. Willing to work with our budget and still provided us with fantastic food. The kitchen was not the ideal situation but they made it work with no issues. Our expectations were exceeded and made our special day even better. Their talent is one of a kind and their caring customer service is the icing on the cake.

He was always prepared and willing to hear us out and meet our needs. We were so happy that our food was amazing and the bartending service was top notch. We had about 125 people and not one had a complaint about the catering. They seamlessly served and also adjusted to what ever happen on our night. Honestly we could have not asked for a better experience.
