My husband doesn't often have opinions, but he felt super strongly about picking Diana and CGC for our wedding day - and we are SO happy about this decision! First, for the deal - their prices are a steal. Second, for Diana - just in talking to her on the phone, she really knows her stuff (and, she had coordinated a wedding at our venue before which was a plus!). We were planning our wedding long distance so had to take a leap of faith when picking our vendors - so we settled on CGC with our fingers crossed. Finally we got to meet Diana and do a tasting, and the food was delicious (esp those mashed potatoes!). And, Diana was so accommodating, letting both of our parents (my husband's parents were visiting from out of town) come out. Throughout wedding planning, Diana was extremely responsive to email, seemingly at all hours of day. She was happy to chat with us by phone whenever we felt we needed. She even welcomed my mom to her site to help us pick linen and silverware. I actually don't know how Diana is so efficient and on top of everything. When it came down to the week before, Diana had clearly thought through all of the details and coordinated everything to ensure that we had a perfect wedding day! It was incredible to see how well the venue came together with Diana's direction (I was blown away!), and while I'm sure there were many fires to put out (for example, my husband later told me that the cake came without a stand), thanks to Diana I really couldn't tell that there were any problems. Her organization, experience, and energy are priceless. THANK YOU, CGC and Diana for helping us have the wedding of our dreams! The day was perfect!

Outstanding service and food. My daughter had her wedding on September 23, 2018 at the Heritage Museum of Orange County and Country Garden Caterers provided the set-up at the wedding ceremony and food/set-up at the reception. This was a one stop-shop for all our needs. Many options to choose from and an experienced coordinator (Diana) made it all simple and very helpful. All services from contracting to event catering was done with the utmost courtesy and with seamless professionalism. As bride parents, we received overwhelming positive feedback from our guests on the delicious food and beautiful setting for each event that day. The CG staff did not miss a beat. Pricing was very competitive and the wedding package was all we needed.
Guest Party: 300+
Food: Macadamia Crusted Chicken, garlic mash, green bean almandine, green salad w/ feta.
From the food tasting, linen and silverware selections, to buffet service and clean-up, we were so grateful to have chosen Country Garden Caterers for such a grand event. I would choose them for all my catering needs. Thank you Diana and team CGC!

Caterers and Venue dedicated to make your wedding day a dream!!
Our wedding here was absolutely perfect!! Patricia helped make our wedding day exactly what we wanted. She understood our vision and helped us achieve it. It was a deal for the memories we made. I recommend Country Garden Caterers for their food, service and their own location. Their venue is gorgeously rustic and vintage. Everyone of my guests raved about the food and is still talking about months later. Trust them to make your wedding day unforgettable, you won't regret it!Sent on 11/08/2018

We can't say enough about Country Garden Caterers. First off, let me tell you, their venue is amazing. The brick walls are to die for. They make the atmosphere comfy and cozy. The combination of lighting, the brick walls, and the decorations make the ambiance top notch. The perfect venue for your next event!! The food is delicious!!! I am a foodie, and I know great food when I taste it. At their recent open house event, I had the pleasure of trying their mashed potato bar. I've never seen anything like it before. You put the mashed potatoes in a martini glass then you top with condiments of your choosing, sour cream, cheese, bacon, green onion. I tell ya, I was in heaven. Their best dish is Macadamia Crusted Chicken with a Teriyaki ganache and pineapple salsa. O so yummy! To top it all off, they have the BEST people at Country Garden Caterers. Diana Perkins Director of Sales rocks and Barbara Des Rochers the owner is the sweetest. They go above and beyond to make your event perfect. We highly recommend Country Garden Caterers in Santa Anna.
