Park Avenue Catering and Janine were wonderful to work with. We had so many compliments from guests on the quality of the food. Janine also assisted with our rentals and helped to bring our wedding vision to life. Park Avenue even sent us home with a basket of goodies to remember our wedding by, including a bottle of champagne, dinner, and dessert for two! I would definitely recommend Park Avenue to anyone planning a wedding in the Bay Area!

Park Ave Catering is an A+ experience
Park Ave Catering did an amazing job for our wedding on 10/06/18! It was an absolute pleasure working with Anthony Levy, our Wedding Specialist. We spoke with Anthony by phone a few times to get an idea of what we wanted. He was terrific in helping us make our choices, and pairing our hors d’oeuvres and dinner choices to compliment each other, while providing our guests with a good range of flavors and tastes. Anthony treats his clients with professionalism, care, and warmth; we knew that our wedding menu was important to him. He takes pride in his work and in Park Avenue’s record as a top notch caterer.
Our tasting appointment was spectacular! The dining table was formally set for 4 people; my wife and her mother, myself, and our wedding planner. The food at the tasting was exquisite, with every item full of flavor. It is obvious the chefs at Park Ave combine skill with a great flair for their craft. We tasted 6 hors d’oeuvres and chose 4 to serve; Spicy BBQ Pork and Papaya Crisps, Wonton Redwood Hill Goat Cheese & Cherry Tomato Tarts, Warm Prosciutto, Provolone & Roasted Pepper Puffs, and Ahi Poke Cones with Wasabi aioli and black sesame seeds.
Our salad course was Romaine & Butter Lettuce Salad with grapes, almonds, green onions, with honey-lime dressing. We chose the buffet dinner with Grilled Tri Tip with port wine-caramelized onions & merlot jus lié; Parmesan Crusted Chicken Breast with lemon-arugula pesto; Orechiette Pasta with roasted butternut squash and fresh herbs; Romano Green Beans with shallots and olive oil; and a delicious Watermelon, Tomato & Basil salad.
The food served at our reception was everything we expected based on our tasting, and more! We received so many compliments from our guests. So often food at a wedding is bland and common. Everything from Park Ave was delicious!
The staff at our wedding was terrific and the service was excellent. They were on time for the set-up and worked very hard through the entire event. I can’t compliment the crew enough for their attentiveness and very friendly interaction with our guests.
Anthony, our wedding staff, and Park Ave Catering deserve much more than 5 stars! An A+ job from start to finish. Having Park Ave handle your wedding or event will be the best decision you can make!

Park Avenue catered our wedding, and we couldn’t be happier with their services! The tasting was one of our favorite memories from wedding planning. The food was by far the best wedding food we have ever had. We worked with Anthony while planning, who was so nice and quick to respond to questions we had. The staff the night of the wedding went above and beyond. Our guests were raving about the service! The small details from Park Avenue made our day so special: They had a tray of wine for our guests as they left the ceremony; they placed hor d’ourves and champagne in the suite for my husband and I to enjoy; they kept everyone’s glass full through dinner; we did buffet style but Park Ave brought the bride & groom a place to the head table so we didn’t have to go through the buffet line; lastly, they sent us a tote with so many goodies, leftovers, and some of our leftover cake to enjoy the next day!
Park Avenue is perfect for large scale weddings and events in our Historic Carriage House. Both Diane and Janine are consummate pros with years of event management experience.
