    Professional and Perfection!

    Bacon and Fig came highly recommended and they did not disappoint. We used them for full service for our wedding reception. The food was incredible and the service was excellent. Working with the coordinators was super easy and they were always very responsive. We always felt like we were their #1 priority. We are already looking for a reason to have another party for them to cater.

    Bacon & Fig Events's reply:

    Hi Jaime, thank you for the opportunity. Congrats! It was a pleasure working with you and your friends/family. All the best moving forward. I can't wait to see some of the pictures from the wedding and reception. If you need anything you can contact us anytime.

    Amazing food and even better staff!

    I loved having Bacon and Fig cater my wedding and handle my cake! They were very easy to get in touch with and work with! The food was absolutely incredible as well as the service. Their catering staff and bartending staff went above and beyond when it started pouring down rain at our outdoor wedding - we last minute had to move the ceremony under a covered pavilion and the staff helped our coordinator move chairs which they did not have to do. They were just incredible! They cut our cake, brought it out to guests, and packed everything up at the end of the night so we could put it in our cars. I would recommend them for anything!

    Bacon & Fig Events's reply:

    Thank you, Megan! We appreciate the feedback. Rain is never fun but we're glad everything worked out smoothly. Congrats again!
