Fabulous Food for our Engagement Party!

I received wonderful service in making the arrangements for our party.  It was great working with Laura and her efficiency is much appreciated. The delivery driver was excellent and very professional.  And the FOOD...was fabulous!  Our guests were so impressed and everyone wanted to know who the caterer was.  Next time, we need extra business cards! 😊 We will use them for our next event.

Perfect caterer for rehearsal dinner!

We worked with Marks The Spot to cater our rehearsal dinner event at Elizabeth Spencer Winery and were thrilled with how everything turned out.

Laura and the team took the time to understand our needs, gave awesome recommendations to help us pull everything together, and made things seamless while being a couple of time zones away.

We did their heavy appetizer setup, and it was a great fit for the 50 person group. The team made everything seamless, and we particularly enjoyed the seasonal selections. The most popular, though, was the Oooh Girl Fried Chicken sliders. Our guests are still telling us how awesome those were. Big thanks to the team for helping make it an unforgettable night.
