We hired Classic Catering as our catering for both our rehearsal dinner, with around 100 guests, and our wedding dinner, feeding around 125 guests. We originally found them at the suggestion of our wedding venue, Gardener Ranch. We quickly made arrangements to do a tasting. We were so pleased with the food! Although, I must say, I feel that the food served and prepared for our events outshined the original tasting we did in Monterey. Many of our guests were raving about how tasty each and every course and meal was! As for the servers, bartenders, and event coordinators- everyone was extremely affable, and easy to work with. I felt like everyone went out of their way to create an amazing event. They were also extremely flexible to work within our budget and various food restrictions. I cannot say enough praise about Susan and Jennifer. Susan really helped us through the planning process and communicating back and forth. Jennifer was absolutely incredible on the days of. Unfortunately, I came down with laryngitis during the wedding weekend; Jennifer took it upon herself to make sure that I was always looked after. She brought me food, tea, water, and boxed up some extra food to and stored it in the fridge for me, in case I got hungry later. Thank you so much Classic Catering for helping make our wedding weekend so memorable for all the right reasons!!

We chose Classic Catering based on the reviews, we didn't even do a trial taste test!
We got married at The Mission San Juan Bautista then reception followed at Casa Maria. Susan was our coordinator. She was great and extremely patient with my back and forth concerns. I greatly appreciated Susan's ability to keep me on track. Susan met me at Casa Maria a week before my wedding to talk about the Reception & table layout. Susan was so helpful pointing out areas that I hadn't considered, ranging from high cocktail tables to needing a table for the cake! Her professionalism goes above and beyond our expectations!
Now too the food. We had the Cosmo salad, Beet & Gorgonzola salad, fingerling potatoes, TriTip, seasonal vegetables, Parmesan & mushroom Risotto, mac & cheese(for kids) adults raved about it! Our choice in food was scrumptious! The quality, the presentation and how delicious it was makes us really happy that we choose classic catering for our wedding. We are still receiving emails and calls from our guests raving about the food 3 weeks after our wedding.
It's not just the spectacular food that we were so pleased with, the service staff were amazing and The Captain (I can't remember her name) made sure not only the food ran smoothly but made sure all presents, and flowers got packed up and transported back to our hotel. She was amazing! The service staff go above and beyond our expectations.
We highly recommend Classic Catering for your wedding too!

I have had the opportunity to work with Classic Catering on a number of occasions and all I can say is "professional". They are terrific and offer a fantastic value to anyone looking for great food, service and venues. I can't say enough about Classic Catering and would highly recommend them.

Dean and Debbie of Classic Catering are fantastic chefs and really understand food--and, how to throw a great party. I really enjoy the weddings I work at with them and more importantly, so do my clients.
