Best Catering Company
Paradise Catering is by far the best catering company on the Central Coast. They catered both my sister's wedding (a larger event at a wedding venue) and my wedding (a smaller event at a private home) and the service and food were impeccable at both weddings. Their food is so fresh. It is literally from their own personal garden. And the food is cooked and prepared live at your event on a live grill. The preparation of the food is practically an event at the wedding. You don't have to worry about a thing with Paradise as they supply all of the drink ware, flatware, plates, etc. The service is fabulous. You and your wedding guests will not be disappointed!Sent on 09/11/2020

Amazing & Beautiful
Thank you for the amazing food and service you provided at our daughters wedding this past weekend at Gardener Ranch. Your staff was on top of everything, polite and fun. The food was beautiful and delicious. We have received so many compliments from our guests on how amazing the food was. Our late night grilled cheese Mac & Cheese and Churro bar was an absolute hit! I can’t think of one thing I would change. We highly recommend you. I wish we could do it all again. Thank you!Sent on 10/08/2019
I recently attended 2 separate events where Paradise Catering prepared the food service from breakfast to a late midnight dinner buffet. The food is freshly prepare and the blends of flavors is magical. I am still raving over their "gorgonzola bread pudding" which I could have eaten alone with the fresh salads served. This type of food and catering and services provided is well worth every dollar spent. I highly recommend Paradise Catering and their services and VIP customer service they provide to their clients.

Jon & Nancy have always served the freshest, most innovative menus to their clients; the whole food element of a wedding can go awry with the timing and I've never experienced that with them. Professional service and great food! And I always get to partake!
Nancy and John are top notch, caring professionals who simply make fantastic food and serve it with a smile. Our SIM crew is always happy when we see their name on our event itineraries because we know the guests will be well-fed and happy when they hit the dance floor!
