From the owner: " I know you have many choices when choosing a wedding caterer. Why choose Paella Time? Simply put - WE ARE THE BEST. I'm a classically PAELLA IS OUR SPECIALTY. Don't be fooled by other caterers claiming they make real paella. Years ago I learned the art of making AUTHENTIC paella from a true paella chef from Spain using his family's recipes passed from generation to generation. I use only the FRESHEST ingredients in my paella which is cooked in a REAL saffron stock prepared the same morning (many other "paella" caterers do not use saffron or make a fresh stock instead using using powders or concentrates). All of my tapas and desserts are made by hand from scratch following the same family recipes."

We also cater rehearsals and engagement parties, private in-home parties (birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, etc...), corporate events, holiday parties, and more.

    Amazing service, delicious food, HIGHLY RECOMMEND

    We hired Paella Time to cater our backyard wedding. Thank you for the amazing service from the first phone call, and equally delicious food that we're still receiving compliments on. Tiffany and Ralph were super easy to work with, providing everything we needed including tables, chairs, linens, glasses, and their team was professional, friendly, and attentive. Loved the live cooking. HIGHLY recommend.

    Awesome Service and Paella

    Everything from the communication, coordination to the set up the day of our wedding went smoothly. Ralph's team and staff members were wonderful and the service was great! Not to mention the paella was amazing and we finished off all the leftovers over the next few days. I could probably eat that for a month straight.
    Thank you so very much for serving at our wedding and we definitely recommend you guys to anyone that is considering.

    Most fun dinner idea!

    10/10 would recommend! Paella Time was so yummy, great staff, professional, included in-home tasting. I loved that it was something different that no one else does. I also loved that it wasn't a served over the shoulder type of dinner, I loved that the guests got up and did buffet style where they got to see the giant paella pans. It was such a fun idea and different than what everyone else normally does. Plus it made the vibe a little bit more casual which I wanted.
