    Amphora is an excellent caterer!

    Before finding Amphora, I had reached out to many caterers who did not really listen to my vision or requirements and tried to push me into options I did not want. It was such a relief to work with Xochitl! She came up with options that fit both my budget and vision. The quality of food was excellent, portion sizes were generous, table linens were high quality, and her team was very attentive to my guests and my husband and I, making sure we were always fed and had a drink in hand!

    Amazing food

    We absolutely loved working with Amphora Catering. Our venue gave us a list of catering companies that we were able to use and they highly recommended Amphora. When we went for our tasting, we tried so much food and we loved every bit of food that we tasted. Xochitl was so accommodating to our needs and answered every question that we had about from the menu to the timeline of everything. She was kind and answered every question, she was fast with e-mailing us back when we had a random question about anything. After our tasting, we immediately booked them and did not try any other catering companies after them. We loved their food that much! Leading up to the day, Xochitl was able to help us by figuring out how many drinks we needed for the wedding and coordinating vegetarian meals for our vegetarian guests. On the day of the wedding, they set up everything from the tables and chairs to the buffet station in no time flat. We had passed hors d'oeuvres, the staff even brought some out to us and our wedding party so that we could eat in-between photos being taken. Everyone could not stop saying how amazing they were, we got the shaved steak, coconut shrimp, and rosemary chicken skewers. For dinner, we had a buffet, but due to COVID they wanted everyone to be safe and they served our guests when they arrived at the buffet station. The vegetarian meals were delivered to their tables for them. We had the chicken in a cream sauce, steak with a chardonnay sauce, and mushroom ravioli for our entrees. Our sides were mashed potatoes and vegetables that were displayed in a flower formation with a balsamic glaze. My uncle is a very picky eater and he could not stop eating the chicken and wanted the recipe for himself! The steak was tender and melted in your mouth as you ate it. My husband fell in love with the vegetables and was even eating carrots which are rare! Let's just say, the food was talked about by all the guests and my family still talks about the chicken. The staff from Amphora catering were friendly and discrete when they were cleaning up and serving people. Xochitl was there and she made sure that we ate food which is hard for the bride and groom to do at their wedding and she made sure that we had everything that we needed. She boxed up the leftovers for us and we were able to enjoy it again the next night as well. We didn't have a lot of leftovers which tells us how much our guests loved the food. We can not thank Amphora and Xochitl enough for their services and we highly recommend them for anyone's wedding!​

    Amphora and Xochitl MADE our wedding day

    Xochitl was so helpful through the whole process. Her expertise in all things wedding, not just catering, really helped us get to the big day. She had great communication, was extremely responsive, and gave us confidence that the day would be amazing. On our wedding day, Xochitl did everything she could to make sure the day was delicious and beautiful. The majority of our guests were from out-of-town and had been to many weddings. They ALL raved about the delicious food. Amphora Catering and Xochitl were the absolute best choices for our wedding.
