    Love at First Bite was everything we were looking for!

    As a disclaimer, my fianc茅 and I had to cancel our wedding because of COVID-19. Meredith from Love at First Bite was professional, punctual, responsive and extremely knowledgeable. From the first email we knew we wanted to hire Love at First Bite. She was quick to set up a tasting for us and let me tell you, the food was DELICIOUS! After that, even when we were adding on items or changing our catering order, she was quick to respond and so accommodating. She went out of her way to contact our venue and set up necessary permits and went out of her way to meet us at the venue and answer any of our questions. It's unfortunate that we had to cancel our wedding but if we were to do it all again, Love at First Bite would be the first person we'd contact. Trust me, they won't disappoint you!!

    Love at First Bite was such an incredible find! After exploring five or six other places that came back out of budget, I called Love at First Bite on a whim. From the beginning they were helpful. I live out of state so they served a sample meal to my parents when we requested to try the food. My mom fell in love immediately and Meredith helped my mom break down the menu, find other vendors, give her advice on beverage services, dance floors, and porta-pottys and just gave my mom so much peace of mind in the whole process.

    Meredith was also so responsive and helpful throughout the proposals and planning. We had been let down by other companies who just stopped contacting us or not sending revisions in a timely manner. But Love at First Bite had an open correspondence from the beginning and checked in with us at each deadline.

    Not only that, but the food was so good. We had it in our head that we would do most of the work but I'm so glad we left it in the hands of the pros at Love at First bite. They set out fruit and vegetable platters as well as charcuterie boards for the cocktail hour. For the main course we ordered the kebabs but chose the baked potato bar from another menu as the side that they had no problem doing. They also helped one of my dreams come true by setting up a late night macaroni bar that all of my guests are STILL talking about.

    Would highly recommend Love at First Bite for any and call catering needs in the Huntington Beach area!

    What a wonderful experience! We work in the automotive industry which translates to a bunch of guys who like to eat! This is the first time we used a caterer for our events. We were so impressed with the professionalism of Love at First Bite. Mindy was very attentive and found a menu that would satisfy both our pallet and budget.

    We can't wait to use them in the future, they literally took care of everything. Very impressed.
