Wedding Catering & Bar
Bacon & Fig was recommended to me by a friend who used them for her wedding. She had nothing but great things to say about their service & food. I reached out to Charlie to inquire about having Bacon & Fig cater my wedding at the Capitol Park Museum in Baton Rouge, LA. Charlie quickly responded with helpful information & great enthusiasm. From the very beginning, Charlie was always amazing to work with. He worked to ensure that we were planning a great, balanced menu, with lots of variety and that was within our specified budget. The day before the scheduled tasting, I tested positive for COVID. I immediately called Charlie to let him know & we brainstormed a way to safely move forward with tasting. Charlie & his team continued to whip up a WIDE variety of food for us to sample & delivered it to our doorstep!! Talk about customer service!! Not only was the food incredible, but we didn't have to go to the grocery for days! After our hand-delivered non-contact tasting, my Dad & I had a three-way phone call with Charlie. We reviewed all of the items we sampled & developed our perfect menu. Charlie worked with us to customize the bar menu to ensure all of our guests would have access to their favorite drink of choice! I was dead set to have pizza as our "late night" item. Charlie & his team completely exceeded my expectations by making 150 individually packed personal pepperoni pizzas for the guests at the end of the night! The wedding reception ran so smoothly & the food was amazing! Reviews I have heard from my guests are as follows:
"The bartenders were AMAZING, they had my order memorized and when they saw me walking up they would start making a drink for me."
"You had a GREAT bar, my drink was never empty"
"The food was SO good & was party friendly (AKA: easy to eat)"
"The personal pizzas were amazing, the perfect ending to a perfect night"
I cannot thank Charlie & the whole team at Bacon & Fig enough! I highly recommend them for any event! My husband & I are already wanting to plan a big anniversary party down the road so we can use them and all of our amazing vendors again!Sent on 02/18/2021

We hired Bacon and fig for our rehearsal dinner and our wedding. Charlie and Justin were awesome at accommodating our needs and wants for the menu and they fully executed a sit down dinner without even having a kitchen to work in at the venue. Their services far surpassed our expectations and it was more than we could’ve ever hoped or wish for! The food was so delicious people are still talking about it to this day. And anyone who thinks that people won’t remember your wedding food, is wrong. So, book the best and bacon and Fig is it!Sent on 02/18/2021
