Great food! Worth upgrading package to include Day of Coordinator!

River City Catering was a pleasure to work with for our daughter鈥檚 wedding! The food was absolutely delicious. We received many compliments from our friends and family. RCC accommodated for our guests who had food allergies, were gluten free or vegetarian.

Our cocktail hour menu consisted of: grazing table (antipastos, cheese display, tropical fruit), shrimp ceviche. Buffet dinner: mojo boneless chicken, fresh mahi with mango salsa, mushroom risotto, cilantro rice, vegetable medley, roasted red & sweet potatoes, plantains, salad, bread rolls. Bar included Moscow mule, white sangria, wines, beers, sodas, juices, and an infused water hydration station. Variety of dessert shooters: carrot cake, key lime pie, and red velvet

Kiaraliz (also goes by Kiara) was professional and responsive throughout the planning process to ensure everything went according to plan. Kiara鈥檚 day of coordination was amazing - she listened to my daughter鈥檚 vision and provided great feedback. We had a weather scare the morning of the wedding, however, that went away and once Kiara arrived on site - I, the Mother of the Bride, did not have to be involved with setup and could give all my time and energy to the bride.

We received lots of accolades on food, Kiara鈥檚 attentiveness and that of her staff.

Thank you so much for catering our event! We would highly recommend RCC and would use them again for our catering needs.

You Should Hire Them

River City Catering is a must. Don't worry about their office being sort of small and not as flashy as the other catering vendors. Your food will be delicious from the time you do your tasting and, more importantly, at your actual wedding. We did RCC's cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres, the Latin buffet menu, and had an open bar where they supplied the alcohol and bar tenders. All our guests loved everything on the menu and even my mom who is super picky had good things to say about the job they did in terms of presentation of the food and guest tables, organizing the pace of dinner, and the taste of the food. Special thanks to Kayleigh and the chef who worked with tons of food restrictions and considerations related to my guests. Kayleigh was super helpful with clarifying my ideas, questions, and updates. You will be happy with the planning and quality of River City Catering while not spend unnecessary bucks with the more pricey catering vendors.

Delicious!

I feel like wedding food does not have the best reputation, but the food we had through RCC was absolutely amazing! I am an incredibly particular person when it comes to food, and I absolutely loved everything we sampled and ultimately ate for our wedding. So many of or guests told us that they loved the food, as well. They even cut our cake for our guests, which was greatly appreciated. We also used their bartending services, and I liked that we had the option to supply our own alcohol as it helped us with some costs (could buy up over time). I also greatly appreciate how quickly our event manager, Christina, would reply to our emails. I was incredibly satisfied with the overall quality of services we received through RCC!
