Love personal touch dining!
My daughter Rachel and new son-in-law Andrew choose Personal Touch Dining from their 'one and only' tasting as they loved the food and delivery. My daughter has discriminating taste and has since she was a child. We also had 2 Executive Chefs as guests and they concurred!! I volunteered to write this review due to my satisfaction as a parent. I was not involved with the selections, but borrowed the menu for printing. We used the menu from the tasting to make our own for the guests which included appetizers through the desserts. It was a nice touch to the dinner table. Instead of cake, the newlyweds did desserts. The chocolate and white cake pops were divine and the churro stand a hit! They also chose a full bar which was beyond affordable. Brittany was their go-to for catering. The staff we so professional and took care of everything! Because it was flawless all that was required of me was to have a good time and that I did. Norma K, Mother-of-the-BrideSent on 06/06/2019

Personal Touch Dining did a wonderful job with our wedding catering from start to finish. We requested proposals from 3-5 companies during our initial search and Personal Touch first impressed us with their affordability which was very important to us. Sometimes affordability can translate into lower quality for service/taste/etc. but such is NOT the case with PTD. From my initial email their sales representative was extremely responsive, curteous, and helpful. She tweaked our proposal multiple times so I could get a feel for the costs and what to expect before our tasting which I really appreciated. Our tasting went beautifully and everything tasted great! As we got closer to our day we worked with another staff member named Brittany and she was an absolute joy. So sweet, very responsive as well, and had great energy when we met in person. Everything tasted and looked great on the day of our wedding. At the end of the night we were ready to leave and one of their staff asked if we'd like to go boxes of the dinner food. I responded that we were leaving on our Honeymoon, but to give it to my parents, which they did. However, the server then asked about us taking some dessert back with us and we didn't even realize that we never got to eat our own desserts due to being so busy the whole night! I emphatically replied YES and really appreciated that person going above and beyond to make sure we got what we needed, and things we didn't even think about. My husband and I were able to enjoy the delicious cookies and chocolate covered strawberries provided by PTD in our wedding night suite along with our cake which they boxed up for us as well. Really really appreciated that extra effort to track us down and ask.Sent on 08/07/2019
There were a couple minor things we addressed after the fact when asked about our experience and Lauren was very quick to remedy these details which was also very impressive to me. Highly recommend this company.

Personal touch is exactly who you should hire for next event/wedding! Our tasting with them for our wedding was so nice- they made us feel so important. When our actual wedding day got here at Orfila Winery all of our guests couldn't stop talking about how amazing the food was. The cornbread chicken is to die for. We wouldn't change a thing! They provided passed wine after our ceremony, champagne pour for our speeches and the buffet was piping hot. We highly suggest!Sent on 06/12/2019
Personal Touch Dining's reply:Hi Cortney,
The name says it all and they should add 'Perfectly Done' to the end! The entire team at PTD is awesome at what they do. You will only have the best wedding ever with them on your team! Andy Owner The Groove
I am always excited when I find out I'm working an event with Personal Touch Dining. The food is fantastic, and as importantly, the service is always wonderful. Thinking as a photographer, they're up to date with styles and trends, and I notice how they keep a low profile with the kitchen and a clean appearance through the event, all adding up to better pictures for you! I highly recommend Personal Touch for your wedding or event.
Delicious, experienced and amazing! Such a treat to work with everyone at Personal Touch Dining-- they always have everything in order and running smoothly with great customer service, happy smiles and amazing food - what more could you ask for?
