    Best wedding meal we've ever had!

    I cannot say enough good things about Catering by Uptown. There were so many options to choose from for our wedding menu. We got to choose 6 passed and 3 stationary hors d'ouerves - all of them were absolutely delicious. We and our guests absolutely loved them and kept going back for more. Our dinner meal was a duel entree of crab cake and filet mignon. Many of our guests said they were looking forward to it the most and it did not disappoint. People are still talking about the food and asking us who our caterer was. It was one of the best parts of our wedding, and our wedding was near perfect!

    Best in the business

    If you strive for top of the line service, and attention to detail, The Villa is the best choice you can make for your event. If you’re lucky, like myself, you will get Veronica Parker as your Catering Supervisor. My only sore spot was my Party Planner, Ester. I would not recommend her and I’m not sure if she’s in the right type of business.

    Great to have so much consolidated with one vendor!

    We got married at Anchor Inn in Pasadena. It is a BEAUTIFUL venue. Catering by Uptown was fantastic to work with from start to finish. With the pandemic, we knew we wanted to limit the total number of vendors we had to work with in the event we needed to postpone....which we did! It was soooo much less stress to have our venue, food, linens/place settings, part of our decor, uplighting, cake and so much more all tied together. The food and cake were both delicious! Esther was our point person throughout much of the planning and Mira took care of us for our rehearsal and wedding day. Both were fantastic to work with and kept everything running smoothly from planning to execution!
