    Best Caterer in Santa Cruz

    Barbara and Company not only served up amazing food (not 'normal' wedding food) at our 100-guest wedding, their staff handled all the setup, chair moving, table setting, cleanup amazingly. The DJ even asked us how we managed to get the best caterer in Santa Cruz! Also their quotes came back lower than many other caterers in the area. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs a large event catered by a well-organized team.

    Beyond Expectations

    Words can’t express how grateful I am to have found Marina and Barbara & Co. Catering. We had the absolute best experience from tasting to walk through to the day of! Marina and her staff were the definition of professionalism, and made sure we were well take care of. When things went wrong she rallied and helped us problem solve in ways she didn’t have to. I felt all the confidence booking her and she did not fail. She personalized our menu and the food was absolutely delicious! Everyone raved about it! Book her for her amazing food but know you’re getting so much more! They were wonderful!

    Hire Barbara and Company!

    There are not enough words to express how incredible Marina and her team are! First and foremost, the food is spectacular. So many of my guests told me that the food was not only the best wedding food they had ever had, but one of their favorite meals. Marina was willing to get creative with our menu in multiple areas and the results were incredible! We wanted to have a cake made out of cheese for our cocktail hour and the time and effort she spent helping create the perfect display was unreal. She totally understood my idea and was just as excited to make it happen. She and her team were responsive, helpful, and overall a calming presence in the midst of wedding planning craziness! Plus, they are so kind. I felt so secure knowing that Barbara and Company was on our vendor team- if anything came up that day I knew that they would do whatever possible to make the event perfect! I can’t recommend Barbara and Company enough- it was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!
