    Always a pleasure to work with!

    I have hired CGC for private events for a few years now and they are my go to for anything food related. They are budget friendly, with high quality food and onsite staff. They have handled everything from a full on wedding, holiday celebrations at a private home, Birthdays, to Bridal showers. Diana is my go to girl and she works with me on my clients budget, ideas, and she is realistic on what they can provide and what they cannot. She gets back to me in a timely manner (remember weekends are usually booked and it takes a few days for catch up, but she will get back to you) Her team the day of the event are professional, friendly and exceed my expectations every time! I recommend them to my clients, friends and family!

    Love diana and her team

    I don’t even know where to begin to show my appreciation. First and foremost, I would love to thank my star point of contact, Diana, for being so patient throughout this journey. We hired Country Gardens Catering for our wedding in July, without having to taste their food first due to Covid regulations. Our venue was also non-inclusive and I did not hire a wedding coordinator so you can imagine how much all the little details mattered to me. That meant that I was always asking endless amount of questions and expressing many concerns. However, Diana, being the angel that she is, listened to all of my worries with patience and worked with me to find a solution for anything. Whether it meant making a custom menu for our buffet, or even as small as revising linen colors, she found an answer to them all. Thank you to Diana and her team for making the planning process so swift, and for giving so much of your time and energy into our special day. We are eternally grateful for your kindness and we will always keep you in mind for future events! As soon as we get some photos/videos back, I will be sure to post them!

    Delicious & Memorable Food

    Country Garden Caterers are the preferred caterer for our wedding venue, HMOC and they did not disappoint. I was concerned about blowing our wedding budget on food which was a super important element to me and not only was the food extremely affordable, it was absolutely delicious too! We served their chicken & steak fajitas + the cheese enchiladas and received such good feedback from our friends & family. Our guests were excited to have a break from "traditional" wedding food and really enjoyed themselves. Their servers & bartenders also took great care of our guests!

    Thank you so much Marissa for the review! We wish you and Patrick years of joy and marital bliss!

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.
