    Beyond exceptional in all aspects

    David, the owner and ring master behind Affordable Affairs, is a true expert in his craft. When Kelly and I had to find a caterer at a moment's notice, we somehow lucked upon a recommendation from a mutual acquaintance (his main bar tender Joe) and landed with David. The tasting was great! As was the main dinner service. For us, he handled the food, waitstaff, bar tender, linens, glasses, utensils, plates, and all seemingly endless aspects between. Normally this would be great, but add the difficulties and changing environment due to COVID restrictions, and David's drive to have a perfect dinner outshines even more.
    Our food was phenomenal. My wife and I even raved at home how good the leftovers were days later when the Chicken was still juicy (not dry) and flavorful. David knows his Italian dishes and knocks it out of the park.
    All our guests mentioned how good the food was, how happy they were with the bar service, and how perfect everything went during dinner service. We are very pleased to have used Affordable Affairs and will definitely be using David's services again for any future events.
    If you're looking for a no bull expert who's read to work for you to deliver a great dinner experience, look no further!

    Hiring Affordable Affairs was a GAMECHANGER

    This is THE BEST and most affordable catering you can hire in San Diego. My husband and I went to various bridal events and did individual tastings will all our top caters, and Affordable Affairs had no competition. David worked with us to make the perfect menu that our guests STILL talk about. He has a way of customer service, communication, and execution that is beyond anything we saw elsewhere. We are SO happy we hired him for our wedding catering, and we could not recommend him and his staff more! For any foodie looking for a caterer, Affordable Affairs is by far the best option!
