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.

    Personable and professional

    While we did not select Paella Time as our caterer, we would still highly recommend anyone looking for a caterer to check them out. They were very willing to accommodate all of our requests. They provide a full service, fun, and unique catering option. Every person that we interacted with from Paella Time was very professional and friendly.
    Our decision to hire a different caterer had nothing to do with Paella Time at all. We just met with a caterer that we felt an instant connection to and did not want to risk losing our date (caterers book fast, so you have to jump on them). Upon receiving our message informing them of our decision to hire a different caterer, Ralph, was very gracious and respectful. He told us that while he was sorry that he would not be catering our wedding , that he was happy we were able to find a caterer that was a great match for us and wished us the best.
    If you are looking for a unique, beautifully presented, one stop catering option, we would highly recommend giving Paella Time a try.

    I am the owner of Cassandra White, Weddings and Events. I had the pleasure of working with Paella Time's owner Ralph and his wonderful team on a recent wedding in San Francisco. When it came to planning for the wedding, Ralph was responsive, accommodating, organized and promptly provided any information I requested. The food was delicious, their presentation was incredible, the staff was attentive to the guests needs, right on top of things and easy to work with. You need to consider Paella Time for your next event!
