After looking at several other venues we felt that Tarpy's was the perfect fit for our intimate wedding. Alethea and the staff at Tarpy's did an amazing job helping us plan and coordinate our wedding reception. They were both flexible and thoughtful and always considered our wants and needs. The Library Room with its outdoor patio area felt both spacious and private and allowed us to move with ease while enjoying our time with our family and friends. We have always enjoyed dinning at Tarpy's and as usual the food was excellent! Our guests enjoyed each of plates offered. Our menu included:
Appetizers - Flat Iron Steak Brochettes, Grilled Prawns, and Castroville Artichokes
Salad - Iceberg Wedge with Creamy Gorgonzola Dressing, Gorgonzola Cheese, Smoked Bacon and Cherry Tomatoes
Entrees - Maple Brined Pork Chop, Herb Crusted Sterling Salmon Filet with Tomato Relish and lemon Beurre Blanc, and Hooch Chicken
Dessert - We served wedding cake and a fruit tart from Angelina's Bakery, Homemade Pavlova and cookies provided by us and chocolate dipped strawberries from Tarpy's
Our servers were prompt and courteous and they quickly took care of all of our needs. Our guests with food allergies were served their specially prepared dishes with no problems. We are so thankful to Alethea and the staff at Tarpy's for making our wedding day everything we hoped for!

My husband and I were so happy we chose Tarpy's. On our wedding day, they served an amazing meal that our guests couldn't stop raving about. They have a huge menu and selection of catering options that can meet any dietary need. Their event staff are easy to get ahold of, accommodating, and overall great to work with. Not only did Tarpy's provide our dinner and bar service, but they also managed all of our rentals - from the chairs to the table cloths to the plates. Everything was set up so beautifully, exactly as we imagined, and we were so happy to have Tarpy's as one of our vendors. A no-brainer for any wedding in the Monterey / Carmel area.

I cannot say enough good things about working with Alethea Cusimano and the rest of the staff at Tarpy's for my wedding reception. From the very beginning Alethea helped me plan all the details, from large to small, and was patient and a great listener. On my wedding day the cake we had ordered from an outside vendor disappointed us, and the staff at Tarpy's jumped right in to help display the new cake we had delivered (Their chef even arranged the sugar flowers we had delivered onto the new cake). The staff at our reception was everything you would hope to have on your wedding day: smiling, friendly, and very courteous. They responded quickly to any requests and many of our guests commented on how our reception was one of the most beautiful they'd ever been too!! My family and friends all said that the food was the best they'd ever had at a reception, and the vegan/gluten free option I personally ate was delicious! Working with Alethea took all the stress off of us and our families, which made the reception something we could truly enjoy, relax and just have fun at! Thank you Tarpy's for making my wedding day an unforgettably beautiful experience for myself and the people I love.
