    Elaine Bell exceeded expectations! Look no further!

    My husband and I got married in CA on 8/7/2021 and could not have been more thankful that we had chosen Elaine Bell as our caterer! Cara was so incredibly helpful during the planning process and the day of team went above and beyond our expectations!

    Our biggest concerns were the taste of the food, wait time for both food and drinks, and kindness of the staff. They were incredible in all categories. I had so many guests talk about how delicious the apps were during cocktail hour as well as the dinner entrees! Also, there was never a time where glasses were empty. The staff's kindness was unmatched!

    We had last minute mask mandates be put in place before our wedding. The entire staff was courteous and followed these rules and made our guests feel extremely safe!

    Overall we had the best experience with Elaine Bell and we would highly highly recommend them for any catering event!

    Above and Beyond Catering Service

    Elaine Bell Catering did an excellent job catering our wedding. They were flexible in adjusting to our scaled-down wedding and delivered excellent quality across the board. We had an enjoyable time choosing our menu in their tasting room pre-covid and highly recommend the experience to anyone looking for a caterer for their wedding. We had a high expectation for the quality of the food and drink after our tasting, but were especially impressed with the serving staff the day of. They were professional and did a great job responding to requests from our guests. Overall, I’d happily use Elaine Bell catering again and would recommend them to any of our friends or family.

    Delicious, professional & COVID bride approved

    Elaine Bell catered my micro-wedding a few weeks ago, and they made the night. The food was delicious and BEAUTIFUL, I've never seen such beautiful food. They were extremely kind and professional and helped us think through precautions needed to ensure the event was safe in light of the recent health crisis. I can't wait to use them again! I've been craving their ahi tuna tar tar since the wedding!

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.
