We love nora!

Sergio and his team at Nora Spanish Catering were rockstars at our wedding! First, we were victims of having to move our wedding 3 times due to COVID, and the team at Nora was always so positive, flexible and supportive as we navigated the craziness. When it finally came time to celebrate this May (2021), everyone was completely FLOORED by the quality of food provided.

The appetizers were incredible (they even made a gorgeous plate for us post nuptials to enjoy during photos!), fresh/hot/tasty. And of course, the paella was a huge hit. It was a beautiful, interactive experience for guests to watch the paella come to life during cocktail hour, and was SOOOOOO TASTY! We had three types of paella available, and the servers were very generous with portions, while making sure everyone was able to try all three if they wanted. There was plenty of food to go around, and offer seconds to those interested.

The team was great to work with and our venue had nothing but wonderful things to say about them. They also helped coordinate all rentals needed for the evening which was such a nice perk (and we got a 10% discount!).

We can't wait to enjoy their paella at their restaurant and re-live our wedding dinner!

Everybody loved the food!

I hired Nora as the caterer for my wedding last October, and it went beautifully. I worked primarily with Adrian and Ama, and on the day we had Emily (one of the cofounders, I think?) overseeing everything.

We went to Berkeley for a tasting and fell in love with the paella right away. It's amazing, and the unique part is that they cook it in huge pans outside which can be part of the experience.

Adrian was our main point of contact and she made everything easy. She was very professional, and even when we were a little worried about tying up some details with our coordinator, Adrian was on top of things. She came out to the venue a couple times -- all the way to San Francisco -- which was awesome. On the day, the servers made everything go smoothly -- bar was set up, dinner was set up, dessert was ready to go on time, and they helped with the cake cutting (on request). It was such a relief to have them taking care of everything!

Also I will say that I had to adjust the food a lot over the months based on our budget -- we cut the cocktail hour tapas, for instance -- and overall Nora was really easygoing with all that. I didn't feel pressured or locked in to anything.

Everybody loved the food. Even my older relatives who I was nervous wouldn't like anything too "exotic" said, "I don't know what that rice stuff was, but it was so good!" Also the bartender was generous with the cocktails, everyone commented they were strong but not complaining about that. Such a fun night.

Only tip is ask for to-go boxes! The night flew by and I wish I'd had more time to eat and take some home for later.

Can't say enough about how good it was!

We hired Nora Spanish Catering for our son's wedding in Watsonville at Wildwood Estate and Gardens. We worked with Adrian there and we could not have been happier. From our tastings through execution on the day of the event Adrian and her staff were incredibly professional and helpful. We had passed tapas for appetizers and paella and salad for the buffet dinner. The guests loved watching the paella being made and they raved about how good it was to eat. The best part - it is piping hot when the guests get it - not that typical cold plated, boring wedding food. Can't say enough about how good it was. They were the best vendor we worked with and I highly recommend them.
