    A wonderful catering company to work with

    We've been working with Amphora Catering (and Amphora Bakery) since 2019 as we selected them for our 2020 wedding. I've truly enjoyed working with Xochitl over these past years. She and her team have extremely patient with us after each reschedule due to the pandemic. She walked my husband and I through the process in 2019 when we selected the different appetizers, entrees, linens, tableware, etc. They are transparent and give you a very detailed contract so you understand what is included in the costs. She made the process easy for us and always had info ready for us whenever we asked questions. Since then, she was always responsive even when she was not in office. I was pleased with her and her staff on the day of our wedding day (finally!) on Friday, May 13th. They really did such a good job taking care of us. She even checked in with us a couple of times during the wedding to make sure we were okay. The food was amazing! We very much appreciate Xochitl as we built a great working relationship with her. I highly recommend Amphora Catering to any couple. If you are looking for a wedding cake too, they also have a bakery!

    You Cannot Go Wrong With Amphora

    I worked very closely with Xochtil. We pushed our wedding back a year due to covid and a deployment and then it rained all day on our wedding day.
    Xochtil and team made sure every detail from signage to catering to food at dinner and cocktail hour was amazing. We had it all. The beef, salmon and chicken as well as potatoes , salad, three different appetizers from different parts of the world. ALL GREAT! Our guests who live in the area are now also using amphora. They were troopers during our wedding and the food was amazing - it was NOT ‘cheap chicken’ that tastes like cardboard like many weddings!
    At the end of the day they helped me clear up . Basically the customer service is second to NONE. Food is so important at a wedding! They delivered!!!
    I will return to Amphora for future occasions! You will NOT be disappointed!!!

    Wonderful (and delicious) experience with Amphora!

    If one of the few things people remember about weddings is how good the food was, Amphora will make sure your guests remember your wedding for a long time! Xochitl was incredible at helping us plan our menu - she helped us easily make changes as COVID changed our plans and made sure all the related details were taken care of. The food was absolutely delicious and Xochitl made it an easy process! Definitely recommend Amphora!
