    Great value for a company with great values!

    We are so glad we went with L.A. Catering! Sara worked with us from start to finish and was friendly, helpful, and very flexible in working within our rather restrictive budget. Our guests all commented on how good the food was and they were excited that the money went to support such a good local cause.

    We had an entirely vegetarian-friendly spread, and there were plenty of delicious options.

    One piece of advice: go to their occasional (maybe twice a year) tasting events so you can try out different options. It was there that we fell in love with the lemon bars and decided to supplement our cake with some dessert trays. I still think about those lemon bars often... :)

    L.A. Catering made catering portion of wedding (planned less than 3 mnths) stress free and amazing! The staff were all professional and easy to work with, but Sara Bentley was especially amazing. Sara maintained great communication throughout the entire wedding planning process. She was always helpful, accessible, and knowledgeable. Truly the day of our wedding, Sara felt like our friend! We were so impressed with how well she worked within our budget while still providing delicious food with beautiful display. The private tasting was personalized to us, menus with our names on it to the table decorated in our wedding colors/theme…those touches that make one feel special. I am a vegetarian but my husband loves meat, so Sara and the chef worked with us to have a blend of both foods which tasted amazing. We never felt rushed whether in person or on the phone with staff, and they were very responsive and was very patient with us despite our several emails, calls, and texts with our questions. Our wedding venue, who is picky about their vendors RAVED about L.A. catering’s professionalism, efficiency, and clean-up. They reported they would likely add them to their small list of recommended vendors which includes Cameron Mitchell’s, Creative Cuisine, and Made from Scratch. Two of which we were considering for our wedding. We chose L.A. over them for several reasons but two biggest were L.A.’s costumer relations and money would go to support a great organization LifeCare Alliance which assists older adults and challenged (meals on wheels etc). I mean how neat is that! My guests reported the food was SPECTACULAR. My mother texted me the next week “heard so many wonderful comments…also you had the best food by far.” We also had a great experience using their bartender as well. Overall L.A. catering went above and beyond what I would have ever expected from a caterer. They gave us our dream wedding within our budget while maintaining class and elegance.
