Carla and team were a dream come true after a difficult search to find a caterer that made beautiful, tasty food that fit within a budget. They were so flexible with our requests and needs, and we really felt like Carla was working for US instead of the money. We wanted to bring our costs down, and she didn't fight us on it. She made great suggestions, and we were so satisfied with the outcome. I was a little distracted by the madness of my wedding the day of, but I remember the food being excellent and having no issues with anything. I would definitely recommend Master's Meals to others looking for local, delicious, affordable catering.
Although the food was great and the chef was charming, working with Bryan, the office manager, was a complete nightmare. On average it took over a week and multiple emails to get a response from him. I had to track down the suppliers of the beer we wanted to serve myself, I was under the impression that was part of the caterers job, but maybe I'm wrong about that. There was a confusion the day of the wedding on what time they were supposed to arrive at the venue, so even though they had all of our table linens and we couldn't finish setting up without them and I was supposed to be walking down the aisle at 430, they did not arrive until 4pm. Our ushers had to stop seating guests that were arriving in order to help finish setting up the tables! The worst part of the whole thing is that when we didn't know where they were or if they were showing up, they were completely unreachable. My father in law was on the phone with a friend of his who owns another restaurant to bring something - anything - down when they finally arrived. And when they did show up, there was hardly an apology. Just, "Oh, I thought you knew we were arriving at 4". I understand that this is a family business and that Bryan is the chef's son, but in all honesty Bryan either needs someone managing him to keep him on track, or an office assistant who is actually capable of running an office, which he is not. I know that catering a wedding is not cheap, and Masters Meals was definitely more than we had originally budgeted for the wedding, but I thought when I signed the contract that it was worth the price for getting the food we wanted and what looked like it would be excellent service. Boy was I wrong. For $6,000 I shouldn't have had to wake up the day of my wedding wondering if my caterer was going to show up. I would never recommend this company to anyone.
The food was really good and everyone was really helpful. My food was a little cold and there were Melons in my fruit salad even though i am allergic to them. Everything else was great though.
I couldn't have been more happy with the service we received. This is a wonderful place to have a celebration. I will recommend them every single time!
I had my wedding at the lake house in blue lake, and master meals was the caterer. The food was wonderful. My guests raved about how good it was. The staff was helpful and attentive. They made sure that the bride and groom had everything they needed food and drink wise. It made the day perfect. thank you.
Carla was incredible and the food was absolutely delicious! All of the service staff was so efficient and courteous! Thank you for making our special day perfect! :)
Meredith and Carla were great to work with during the planning process. Unfortunately the night of our wedding things did not go as planned with what we had spent 9 months planning and even though we had several guests that did not show, we ran out of food. It was very disappointing to spend that amount of money and time and not have your event turn out the way you wanted. However, all was not lost because my guests had no clue what went great and the food was amazing! wrong, and people raved about the food. Things happen, and thats just how it goes -- but overall the team was great
I would recommend Master Meals 100%! They were professional, on time, & did such a phenomenal job on the food. Every single guest raved about the food, the presentation of the food, & the responsiveness to how fast things were cleared off when they were done. Master Meals is a great family owned business which is the main reason I loved it so much! Please use them for your wedding and you will be happy too!!!
They were simply amazing! They worked so hard for us to get us down to our budget and didn't make us feel stupid! They were quick to respond to any question and always willing to help. They even refunded us the difference when we had less people than expected. Please consider them!!!
