Amazing services and good!

We hired Upohar for my wedding count of about 60 people, and let me just say “Amazing”! The catering team not only set everything up beautifully because we chose the drop off catering package they also were so kind enough to reach out to my wedding coordinator to let her know in advance what food would need to be replenished. The team was also very helpful and resourceful in helping us find a bartender for our wedding and a trash haul company because our venue did not supply it.

Let’s not forget about the food !
We are a Hispanic couple so we picked the Pernil(pork), chicken, yellow rice, white rice, black beans, pinto beans, salad, sweet plantains and the chicken & beaf & cheese empanadas.
My husband and I didn’t have time to do the food tasting since we live out of state, so we read the reviews and took people’s words for it and let me say the reviews did not lie!! The food was soooo good! Our guest would not stop raving about it and asking if the food was homemade and brought to the venue! I never thought catering food could be so tasty !

Absolutely incredible

My husband and I had Upohar cater our wedding and we can't tell you how incredible it was! The food was absolutely delicious. We got pernil, pollo asado, empanadas, and chips with salsa and guacamole. Our guests were raving. I also can't say enough good things about Sri, Stephanie, and Josiah. They were a joy to work with — very responsive, attentive and organized. The service at our wedding was top-notch as well. A few of my guests told me how kind and courteous they thought Josiah was. My husband and I couldn't be happier. We highly recommend Upohar for your event!!
