Paradise Catering was a dream to work with for my wedding on 9/22/12 at Holman Ranch. My family and I tasted with a few vendors around Carmel Valley and there was no contest, Paradise was the clear winner. Nancy and John are so warm and friendly but also amazingly professional. The food is to die for good, all of our guests couldn't help but agree calling it the best food they've ever had at a wedding! From the appetizers to the family style served dinner they WOW'd everyone!! Nancy was so kind and helpful with everything, we owe her for making our special day so wonderful and easy. Thank you Paradise Catering!!! You are the best!!!!!Sent on 09/27/2012

Great food, great service
Paradise catering did my rehearsal dinner and wedding at Gardener Ranch back in November of 2018. It was a great experience from the very beginning. They were really easy to work with. Their communication is top notch, which was really important to me. They would get back to me quickly and always with detailed information.Sent on 05/13/2019
We had a great tasting with tons of different options that really gave us a good idea of what to expect. When it came time to plan the menu, I wanted something a bit different from their standard offerings. They were really excited to do something unique. We wound up serving duck breast with a cherry red wind sauce and pumpkin risotto, and halibut with chimichurri sauce. Everything was amazing and people raved about the food.
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!
