Great Food and Drinks!

We hired Colette's when we had our wedding at The Muckenthaler Mansion since they are the exclusive caterer to the venue. We worked mostly with Sara, who was absolutely wonderful and was able to answer any questions we had. We wanted brunch for dinner at our wedding, and worked with her to make a menu for our tasting. At our tasting, we worked with Duane. It was so hard to pick what we wanted because everything was so delicious! On our wedding day, we unfortunately had food poisoning from my mother-in-law's cooking, so we didn't get to taste the food. However, our guests raved about how delicious the food was, how great the open bar was, and the staff. I would definitely hire Colette's again since they were such a joy to work with.

We had 6 months to plan the wedding and the first and most important decision was the venue. After visiting many locations in OC and LA, we chose Colette's Catering and the Muckenthaler. Without a doubt, we know we made the best decision for us. The location was ideal - as it was central for our guests from all over Southern CA - (IE, OC, and LA). The venue itself is classic, beautiful and incredibly versatile. Its a true "all-in-one" venue to hold different wedding events, we moved our guests seamlessly to each new area - from the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, to dancing. Also, my favorite, was working with Duane and his team. He was incredibly responsive, friendly, warm, and efficient - he has a ton of experience and made the usually stressful process, much more easier for us. He was accommodating to many of my requests and I was impressed that he replied to my emails personally and in a timely manner. Last, but not least - THE FOOD! It really was so delicious. Our guests enjoyed it all- I received compliments from the cake, the steak, the veggie sides, even the salad dressing! OH and the bartenders were amazing. They were incredibly generous and kept the drinks flowing, which made for a very festive time indeed! Overall, we had a great time working with Duane and his team. From the beautiful venue, the professionalism, the flexibility, and quality service and food, we are so thankful that we chose the Muckenthaler.

Colette's Catering is professional, relaxed, experienced and delicious! i have worked with them repeatedly at Muckenthaler Cultural Centre and even on a yacht in Newport. They will adapt their approach to fit clients' needs...even when it comes to dietary restrictions such as vegetarian/vegan requests. What more can i say about Colette's? They're awesome and a joy to work with.
