    We had an amazing experience with Happy Cardinal! Our food was absolutely delicious and Carolyn, Rob, and their team were incredibly accommodating, respectful, and professional. They took our guests' dietary restrictions into account and made sure everyone had delicious food throughout the evening. The servers were so attentive, making sure that my husband and I always had something to eat and fresh drinks throughout the evening. Happy Cardinal also provided our bar services. Drinks were plentiful, and everyone had a great time. Food and drink are two things your guests care a lot about, and all of our guests were very, very happy with Happy Cardinal!

    Carolyn and Rob did an awesome job catering our wedding. They are so good at what they do - their excitement over flavors and presentation is infectious! They were flexible and capable and were happy to work with a uniquely shaped venue to make sure everything flowed well. We would definitely recommend Happy Cardinal to anyone.

    I am a wedding coordinator, and Happy Cardinal Catering is going on my recommended vendors list! They were on top of everything and constantly ready for the next event during the reception. Plus, the food was amazing! They even catered to people's dietary restrictions. I'm still craving the red pepper hummus!! I definitely recommended them!
