    Delicious and professional

    Nopalito beautifully catered our wedding for 150 people in the Santa Cruz area. They really know what they’re doing. Every bite was delicious and served professionally. It is nice that the people who staff their catered events are the same folks who work at their restaurants. It means they know the food and have the same standard for professionalism. Guests raved about their meals. Their staff invited tables of guests up to walk through the buffet. It took exactly how much time they told us it would. In the lead up, Blanca and Alexis were incredibly communicative—responding to emails at all hours and answering any questions we had. They helped us choose items for the food and drink menu that would be hits with our guests (some of whom were kids) as well as items that satisfied our more foodie preferences. Given the quality of service and food, we felt the quote was very reasonable. This was money very well spent.

    Exceptional Service

    Nopalito did an incredible job at our wedding. The cocktails were delectable and unique, the wine & beer was amazing, the hors d'oeuvres were mouthwatering, and the dinner was flavorful and comforting. From growing up in San Francisco, I know people here are all about the food. So I had to have the best (organic, sustainable) food at our wedding. I worked with Alexis and Blanca throughout the whole process, and they were incredible - extremely communicative, highly accommodating, and very professional. They went above and beyond to make the whole cocktail reception, family-style dinner, and dessert wonderful and smooth. I did not worry one bit because they had everything planned perfectly, and you could see how experienced they are with big events.

    Wonderful working with the Nopalito team to cater my wedding. Their food is delicious and added to the local, San Francisco flair I wanted at my wedding. My husband and I really wanted an interactive experience among guests at their table so we opted for their carnitas and tamales dinner - family style. The food was amazing! The icing on the cake were their paletas (popsicles), which were served out of a cute, retro popsicle cart. The dark chocolate and cinnamon flavor is by far my favorite! Aside from the food, I had a wonderful time working with the Nopalito catering staff. They understood what I wanted for my wedding, worked with my budget, and were flexible with line items in my contract to ensure I was happy with the proposal ... and I was! I'm thrilled I was able to have them cater my wedding. I highly recommend them.
