My husband and I were married in May 2014, and Jay's catered our wedding. We were beyond happy with the food and service.Sent on 06/15/2014
We worked with Emily for over a year leading up to the big day, and she was ALWAYS on top of everything. We went through several revisions of the menu and our guest count fluctuated considerably, but Emily was able to keep everything organized perfectly. She responded promptly to my (numerous) emails and I never had an issue getting ahold of her by phone. Scheduling our tasting and our final details meeting was a breeze, and Emily always came prepared.
The day of our wedding, guests went on and on about the fantastic food. And so much of it, too! Everything that was supposed to be hot was hot, and everything that was supposed to be cold was cold. The bartenders were great -- they mixed awesome drinks quickly and kept the line at the bar short. The event captain and staff were on top of their game too and everyone was well taken care of.
Food and drinks were an important part of our wedding and Jay's more than exceeded our expectations!

My husband and I were blown away by the quality of food we had for our wedding. We had SO many guests tell us after about how much they loved it and many said it was the best wedding food they've ever had. We enjoyed the Taste of Jay's event we were able to attend to try the variety of food Jay's offers. Food is a big deal to my husband, so he wanted a good meal for our first meal together as husband and wife. Jay's surpassed our expectations and the service was amazing as well! Everyone was professional and friendly, making our day that much better. Thank you again, Jay's Catering!Sent on 09/07/2019

Jay's has been a favorite of ours for many years now and is the FIRST place we offer to our clients for all their Catering needs. I am so confident in everything they offer that I used them for my own daughters Wedding. And they operate some of the best Venues in Southern Orange County! Oh and super yummy food displayed beautifully and served professionally.
Jay's Catering by far is one of the best caterers in Southern California! They have outstanding service and their food is simply amazing. I have worked with Jay's many times with my clients and they are always impressed with the impeccable service and quality Jay's Catering provides.
