About

Melons has a two fold philosophy towards catering, the first is that people “eat with their eyes first” and so at every event the décor and design must look as appetizing and wonderful as the food.

The second part of Melons’ philosophy is that every client deserves a great event regardless of budget. We give every client the same high standard of service and motivation in the belief that everyone deserves the best party they can have.

Our flexibility, large menu selection, and creative approach to event planning give us great range in serving our clients to the best of our ability.

    Love this Company!

    Wow! Melon's Catering was the best thing about our wedding. With all the changes we went through due to the pandemic, I was SO happy to have Melon's as our caterer. Ann helped us through the entire process start to finish, and she really knows her stuff. They even were able to source a cigar roller 2 weeks before the event which was a HUGE hit! Our guests are STILL talking about how amazing all the food was and that it was the best food they have had at a wedding! The food, their professionalism, and their attention to detail makes them the best in the business. I can't thank them enough!

    We cannot say enough about this place. We are a couple from Miami, FL and had a destination wedding San Francisco. 1) Never plan a cross country or international wedding, it's a major headache. 2) If you do, HIRE MELON'S!! Darryl and his team were thee most accommodating and kindest people to work with. We were able to do an amazing tasting (which btw is worth every single penny), customize our menu, and pick out all our rentals.

    Melon's worked with us for nearly a year, to get the exact look we wanted, that also matched and fit in our budget. Darryl was so patient with our 500 calls and understood the complications with planning a cross-country wedding.

    The day of could not have been better! I can't thank Darryl and his team for their amazing work. Everyone from our wedding actually ate and finished ALL of the courses. The food and presentation was incredible. The veggie options were very delicious (at least the people who ordered it, said so). If I had to plan an event again in the Bay area, I would not even hesitate to call Melon's to do it!

    We absolutely loved working with Melons and our coordinator, Sheldon. We got so many compliments on the food, from the appetizers to the dessert. I would highly recommend them (and have to several friends) and hope to use them in the future for other events.
