    Unbelievable night!

    Joy Wallace was our absolute perfect choice for our daughter’s quinceañera. Every detail was done to perfection. The food was beyond delicious and every guest was raving about it. Teen station was a hit for teens and even adults. They took care of our event as if it was done for somebody of their own family and every step of the process we felt like that, family!

    Nothing but wonderful things to say!

    We used Jay Wallace Catering for a grand re-opening celebration and have nothing but wonderful things to say about them! From start to finish, their service was professional, timely, and accommodating. The team helped us to get the perfect menu created for our event and executed every detail as promised. The day of the event was seamless. Cannot say enough good things and am so grateful that we decided to use them.

    Event was a going-away-to-college celebration for my daughter. Staff was very professional and attentive to guests. Setup was done efficiently and with great attention to detail. A quick rainfall fell right before event began and staff immediately picked up and covered tables despite the fact that they were getting drenched. In a matter of minutes the rain stopped and the set up looked amazing again. Staff was knowledgeable and knew what to do. Food was presented amazingly, cooked on site and delicious. Would highly recommend for any occasion.
