    Best caterer in South Florida

    Catering by Mark not only has a wonderful staff but also exceptional customer service. They were so helpful and answer all your questions quickly. After searching for several caterers I knew this company was the best. Amazing staff, great pricing, and professionalism. I highly recommend them and will be using them for all my future events!

    Mark was great!! He never said no to any of our requests and make our evening seamless! His wait staff was very attentive in ensuring me and my husband got our food warm , enjoyed appetizers during happy hour, and even packed up the leftovers for us to enjoy. Very flexible and honest !

    Amazing Food, Amazing Caterer

    Mark was extremely flexible with our needs and wants for our catering. We had several vegetarians, vegans, and very picky eaters, and he was able to accommodate them all. He made delicious items within our Latin themed cuisine request that made every one of of guests very satisfied and happy!

    Amazing Service!

    I must have researched a ton of caterers for my wedding but Catering by Mark stood out among all of them. They’re some of the friendliest and most accommodating wedding vendors we came across during planning, and one of the more affordable caterers in the area. I had a ton of questions and changes during the process of planning our menu and ordering rentals and Denise was absolutely amazing at accommodating all of my requests. She and the rest of the team are truly the best! My husband and I loved what we had at our tasting with Mark, and our guests absolutely loved the food at our wedding. Mark and staff were just remarkable at our wedding, and went above and beyond for us and our guests.

    Our Wedding

    Mark was amazing for my wedding! He wanted to help with anything he possibly could. He really helped you not have to worry about anything because he could take care of everything.
    He has so many different types of options for catering, Hor D’oeuvres could be passed around, you could do buffet, or sit down dinner. He provides as many servers you need and bartenders. You can really Customize your event any way you would like to with Mark. He also has a great assistant Denise who would help with the options and would send the break down of all the options you chose and total pricing which I loved. Mark made me feel like he was a family member helping out THATS how great he is! I would most definitely recommend him for any event!

    Wedding 12/1/18 - Mr. & Mrs. Fitzgibbon

    Like at lot of people, I was on a tight budget for planning my wedding. I searched for a lot of catering companies and a lot of them were ridiculously expensive. I finally found Catering by Mark. They did not have a lot of reviews and to be honest that scared me a little. I decided to call them and ask for pricing. They rates were very affordable compared to all the other vendors and included set up, clean up and all the plates, glasses, and silverware which you will find that this varies from vendor to vendor. Denise was the one who I talked to most of the time for rates, for the food and timeline arregements. At the wedding, Mark and his staff did an amazing job. They were so attentive with everyone making sure they had food and drinks and anything they needed; including me “the Bride” and “the Groom”. The food was delicious. I received complements from everyone at the wedding; they loved the food and the service.
    I truly recommend Catering By Mark. Great prices, service, and food. I am more than satisfied and extremely happy with their service.

    Perhaps the biggest component to planning a wedding is hiring a caterer. My husband and I reached out to a few caterers in the South Florida area, and we went with Catering by Mark because of their selection, pricing, and how easy it was to contact them. (Denise orchestrates everything, and Mark does the cooking.) What I love about them is that they are accustomed to catering for a wedding, and pretty much have everything scheduled out as soon as you hire them. They were able to rent the linens and additional tables and chairs, which was a huge relief. Perhaps the most helpful part was how easily Mark was able to create a timeline for our wedding day. We used that in other aspects of our planning, and were confident that the timing would work.
    The day of the wedding went exactly as planned. I could just enjoy the day, without worrying, which makes them worth it. Everyone really seemed to enjoy the food and drinks. I noticed that all the staff were extremely friendly to our guests, which was great to see. My family even took me aside to tell me about one particular server who went above and beyond for them. These are truly great people.
    My only gripe was that some guests wanted the vegetarian option that we made sure was available, but some didn't know about it, and others said they had to ask for it as if it was from a secret menu. Overall, I would definitely recommend them for their value, friendliness, and taste.

    Friendly and Affordable

    Mark and his wife, Blanca, are extremely personable. They made me feel at ease in my search for a caterer. They are very flexible and accomodating, and their prices for the selections are very reasonable. On my wedding day, Mark and his staff were the first vendors to arrive. The server and bartender were very friendly. The food was just what we asked for!

    Selecting a caterer was one of the hardest parts about our wedding planning. We were working on a tight budget and needed someone who really knew how to maneuver in a challenging venue (The Old Davie School House). I liked Mark very much personally and found designing our menu easy, but faced some challenges working with him. From what I tasted of the horsdouevres, they were on par with what I tried during our two tastings. But our dinner buffet left something to be desired. The food was not warm and just not the same quality as during our tasting. We also used a dummy cake and provided our own sheet cake to be cut, but the dummy cake was left out, which is pretty confusing and not what we instructed Mark or his staff to do. Not sure I could give Catering by Mark my full recommendation to another bride. It was close, but no cigar.
