    The Best Food I've Ever Eaten

    We reached out to John and Cathi after seeing John Little Catering on the list of approved vendors from our venue. Prior to reaching out to John Little Catering, we had one other tasting at a larger, more commercialized catering company, and frankly weren’t very impressed with the food and were a little put-off by the fact that they charged us for it.

    From the beginning, Cathi Little was warm and welcoming, and worked hard to help us come up with an idea for a menu. She had a quote to us, including all of our rentals, in no time and was more than happy to schedule a tasting with us. Our tasting took place in John and Cathi’s home in Ramona, an extremely personal touch that blew us away. John cooked all of the items from our menu right in front of us in their gorgeous kitchen, and Cathi talked us through all of the details. John prepared several different salads (his homemade dressings are divine) and versions of each selection (chicken, fish, vegetables, etc.) that he thought would work well for our venue and time of year (he only uses the freshest ingredients available). By the end of our night at John and Cathi’s we knew that they were the perfect Catering team for us, so we immediately signed a contract and gave them a down payment. Easily one of the best decisions we made.

    Flash forward to two weeks before our November wedding, and there was rain in the forecast. Our venue was in Ramona, California (where it NEVER rains), and was all outdoors, so as expected I was a little stressed. One email to Cathi regarding the rain, and I was instantly relieved. She offered to put together an entire rain plan for us including tenting for our guests and all of our vendors, on top of the other weddings she was finalizing at the time. She communicated quickly, and made my life so much easier at a time when I felt like our whole event would be ruined. Thankfully, it did not end up raining on our wedding day, but the fact that Cathi worked so hard to make sure we were covered in case it did is just one example of how the John Little Catering team reliably provides service that goes above and beyond expectations.

    On the day of our wedding, John Little Catering blew every single one of our guests away with the quality of John’s food and the beauty of Cathi’s displays. Every single member of the John Little Catering team was gracious and had a smile on their face for the whole evening, a detail that did not go unnoticed, Cathi made sure that my husband and I were taken care of the whole evening. My new mother-in-law, who is not afraid to give constructive criticism, told us that John Little Catering provided the best meal she has ever had at a wedding or large event, and she’s been to a lot of them.

    As someone who plans corporate Holiday Parties every year, I can easily say that John Little Catering is the best catering company I have ever worked with, and I have worked with some of the top hotels in the area. From the quality of the food, the attention to detail, the excellent customer service, and the warm and friendly duo that is John and Cathi Little, John Little Catering is a true gem in a sea of mediocrity. If you are looking for something more personal than your typical big box corporate caterer, look no further than John Little Catering. They are the kind of company that will add the perfect personal touch to your big day, and will have your guests talking about how good the food was at your wedding for years to come.

    Artistic professionalism at its finest!

    Cathi and John are an absolute joy to work with! From our initial tasting appointment, through the planning process and final touches, their creative force and flair were sheer perfection. Can you find someone less expensive? Yes. Do you get what you pay for? YES - and more!! Chef John's 5 star creations, and Cathi's detailed attention to presentation are artistic professionalism at its finest. My daughter's wedding would not have been the success it was without them!

    Best Caterer EVER!!!

    John Little Catering exceeded our expectations with their delicious food presented very elegantly. The tables were gorgeously decorated and the staff were friendly yet in the background. We had a very tight timetable and they were right on time serving and cleaning up. I would highly recommend them!
