About California Rose Catering, Inc.

Here are just some of the raves we heard about California Rose Catering:

“The food was a smash hit at our wedding, and so were the staff. They were very responsive to all our request and gave us a fabulous tasting ahead of time. It was a little private party at their kitchen.”

“They were amazing! The placement, layout and quality of the food was perfect.”

“The food was delicious and the pricing was reasonable. We asked for oranges from our yard and organic food and they were so flexible. Everything they did was unique. I would definitely use them again and would recommend them to anyone looking for a fabulous caterer.”

“We were so thrilled with their service. I would recommend them first off because they make fabulous food. Our request was for Mexican food and they went above and beyond our request. The food was so authentic and very reasonably priced.”

“They were awesome in every category. Dov was so impressive. He was friendly and answered all questions. Most importantly, he really listened to what we wanted. We had asked for a meal that had attitude and style, all with a very international influence. It was intimate and had a great spirit to it. Rose even made special homemade desserts.”

“California Rose Catering went above and beyond our expectations. They are really fun people, so easy to deal with. Some caterers can be so formulaic in the way everything has to go. Rose and Dov were so accommodating of our ideas and made it the event we hoped for!”

“We had a really fabulous experience with California Rose Catering. They are such a warm and friendly company to work with, like family. We decided on a family style meal and it really fit our vision. It was everything that we wanted and we were very happy with the experience.”

Background

California Rose Catering is owned by founder Rosa Mendicino and her son, Dov Sims, who is the chef. Rosa’s had extensive experience working for different catering companies and restaurants before creating her own company. Not only did Dov grow up cooking with his mother, he also spent nearly a decade as a chef in unique and high-end restaurants around the Bay Area.

Services

California Rose takes a boutique approach to catering: they typically handle one event per day, enabling them to give you their full attention. Rose and Dov work every event and take customer service to heart—they don’t just meet with you once then send a team out.

They welcome—even encourage—clients to take part in the creation of the menu. California Rose specializes in catering unforgettable, thoughtfully composed, and beautifully presented cuisine.

One of our favorite things about California Rose Catering is that they always prepare a wedding basket packed with all the food served at the wedding, soaps, candies, and a bottle of the couple’s favorite beverage. Believe us, most couples do not eat a substantial amount of food at the wedding and end up hungry later on!

    My wife and I hired California Rose to cater our 150-person wedding in October and couldn't have been happier with the results. We even had 5-10 guests approach us to report that this was the "best wedding food I've ever had".

    Dov and Angy were flexible with our food preferences and budget, and they worked well with the other vendors to provide a seamless experience. I am so so happy we came across California Rose before choosing our wedding caterer--they were an absolute highlight of the night!

    We used California Rose for our wedding dinner reception (100 guests). One reason we selected them is that they provided coordination services and also took care of all the table, chairs, linens, dinnerware rentals. They are full-service and capable of handling any type of event. Our contact person was wonderful, mild-mannered, a pleasure to work with and very responsive to all our needs and questions. She gracefully solved some last-minute issues that arose, including during the event. The food was outstanding, we were able to customize the menu based on their recommendations and our guests raved about the food. Strongly recommended for anyone planning a party and needing catering.

    Our experience with California Rose Catering was top notch. This small company in Berkeley provided a wonderful wedding experience for our son's wedding reception at Piedmont Community Hall in August of this year. I was so thankful that we'd chosen California Rose, as I felt as if I had hired a wedding planner due to the attention we received from Angy. She kept me on track, managed all of our many demands with grace and humor, and was a delight to work with. Chef Dov Sims, whose engaging manner and excellent chef skills combined for a fabulous event, was also a pleasure to work with. We had quite a few "that was the best wedding food I have ever had" comments from guests. Thank you Dov and Angy for making our kids' wedding such a memorable and delicious occasion.
