Best caterer around
I love food. I’m a foodie and often very hard to please when it comes to food, especially wedding food. But Paradise blew me away from the moment I tried their food. They knew all my crazy food dreams for my wedding and made it happen. The food was incredible and now days post wedding, guests are still messaging us telling us how good the food was. As we had to postpone wedding several times due to Covid, they were extremely easy and accommodating with rescheduling and making guest count changes. They never made it a hassle to change unlike other vendors. They made us feel special and loved. Always there to support us and make our dreams come true. Not only was the food incredible, their staff and owners are the best. Valerie was always quick to respond to emails and always making sure our dreams were coming true. The owners, Nancy and Jon, there are no words for them. Helpful, communicative, friendly, and a joy to be around. We loved learning about their garden and locally sourced produce. We loved working with all of them during the planning process and day of. On wedding day, they always made sure we had everything we needed and checked on us throughout the night to accommodate us. We could not have picked a better caterer. Amazing food, locally sourced produced, friendly staff who accommodated every road bump along the way. We will forever use Paradise for our catering needs.Sent on 06/06/2021

Truly incredible food and service
Paradise by far and away exceeded our expectations and created a truly memorable experience for us and our guests. From our first communications, they were responsive, kind, and flexible. Our tasting was especially fun and a perfect preview for the magic that was to come. Paradise engaged in an attentive creative process to generate our ideal menu. Our wedding food was not only unique and delicious but also presented gorgeously (including with beautiful edible flowers!). They ensured that all allergies and restrictions were attended to. Throughout the course of the evening, catering staff ensured that myself (the bride) and my now husband were able to get appetizers, dinner, and drinks (which was a thoughtful and much needed detail). The staff were an incredible combination of professional, friendly, and elegantly competent. All of our guests raved about the food and service, which certainly set a fantastic tone for the rest of the night. I'm incredibly thankful and happy that we chose Paradise! :DSent on 06/04/2021

Wonderful Food and Great People
The whole experience with Paradise catering was great. The food was amazing and the service was personal and professional. They came in set up served and cleaned up without any interruption to our festivities. Having them for our wedding dinner was exactly what I was hoping for. Everyone talked about the salad !!! Baby greens, pecans, goat cheese etc. :) We also had some extras and heated them up the next day and everything was just as good !!! Thank You to your whole team.Sent on 04/28/2021
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!
