    Unbelievable Food!

    As people who consider themselves foodies, we were looking for the furthest thing from wedding food, to the point where we wanted the food to be the star of the show (secondary to us of course). Too many times we would attend a wedding to only push food around the plate as it was mediocre at best (yes we are a bit judgmental).

    Enter Elaine Bell!

    Due to being on the East Coast, we had to go through online reviews and word of mouth to figure out who we would talk to. Eventually we narrowed our choices to 3, and set up phone calls with all of them. Dustin was our contact at Elaine Bell and he was flexible, able to work within our budget, and provided excellent descriptions of what Elaine Bell could offer. We thought his attitude towards the food was exactly what we were looking for, and signed on (pre-tasting as we couldn’t jet set across the country before choosing). What a great decision!

    When we did finally make it out there to taste after going back and forth over email about menu items, the food was OUTSTANDING. Definitely one of our favorite meals to date in the Napa area (and we eat for a hobby). Left the tasting pumped and overly full (and likely pleasantly spoiled our dinner 5 hours later)

    Come wedding day, our tasting food showed up to our event, no different than the tasting- same exceptional quality :) Our guests unsolicitedly came up to us all night exclaiming about how fantastic the food was and my NYC foodie friends declared it was “not wedding food” (which is a HUGE compliment to us). Dustin even came over to make sure we were happy and we could not have been more thrilled. My wife was only disappointed that she couldn’t eat more in all the excitement. To top it all off, they sent us with a little cooler with our key-lime pie cupcakes (which they specifically made for us at request and were AMAZING).

    Best decision ever (besides marrying my wife

    Our daughter got married at the Secret Garden in Bodega Bay, CA. A magical venue for such an occasion. But what made the event truly amazing was the outstanding quality of food prepared for this event. Everything from the three beet salad to the 48-hour braised short ribs, cedar plank salmon and the amazing sweet pea risotto, to the delicious mini chocolate mousse and crème brulé, was of absolute top quality. The 19-member service staff, whether manning the bars or serving the tables, everything was first class. I would highly recommend this amazing caterer to anybody wanting a guaranteed successful event. Jennifer was a star to work with.

    I have been so fortunate to work with Elaine Bell and her team on several occasions. Not only is their food incredible and innovative but their staff goes above and beyond your typical catering staff. I tell all of my clients that the caterers are one of the most important aspects (if not THE most important!) of their wedding day and what they provide is a lot more than the food. You really can't go wrong when working with Elaine Bell. They make my job easy and I know I can rest assured on the big day that my clients are in good hands.
