Love at First Bite was such an incredible find! After exploring five or six other places that came back out of budget, I called Love at First Bite on a whim. From the beginning they were helpful. I live out of state so they served a sample meal to my parents when we requested to try the food. My mom fell in love immediately and Meredith helped my mom break down the menu, find other vendors, give her advice on beverage services, dance floors, and porta-pottys and just gave my mom so much peace of mind in the whole process.
Meredith was also so responsive and helpful throughout the proposals and planning. We had been let down by other companies who just stopped contacting us or not sending revisions in a timely manner. But Love at First Bite had an open correspondence from the beginning and checked in with us at each deadline.
Not only that, but the food was so good. We had it in our head that we would do most of the work but I'm so glad we left it in the hands of the pros at Love at First bite. They set out fruit and vegetable platters as well as charcuterie boards for the cocktail hour. For the main course we ordered the kebabs but chose the baked potato bar from another menu as the side that they had no problem doing. They also helped one of my dreams come true by setting up a late night macaroni bar that all of my guests are STILL talking about.
Would highly recommend Love at First Bite for any and call catering needs in the Huntington Beach area!Sent on 07/06/2018

What a wonderful experience! We work in the automotive industry which translates to a bunch of guys who like to eat! This is the first time we used a caterer for our events. We were so impressed with the professionalism of Love at First Bite. Mindy was very attentive and found a menu that would satisfy both our pallet and budget.Sent on 03/23/2017
We can't wait to use them in the future, they literally took care of everything. Very impressed.

Meredith is such a joy to work with. We met for our tasting and she was so nice and had wonderful ideas! The food was mighty tasty as well. We are also had food trucks at our wedding so they were very flexible and helped us fill in the gaps so that our guest will be full and happy! I really feel like they are excited for my event. Meredith even offered to come to the venue with us to get a better grasp of the layout. Taking her time to come up to make things are perfect, is exactly the service I was looking for. Someone who knows how important this day is and has all the little details covered! They were a great addition to the party!Sent on 08/26/2015

Love at First Bite - Huntington Beach, was the best caterer I've ever dealt with!Sent on 04/25/2011
First and most important, the food is amazing! We had so many compliments from our guests.
We had a buffet BBQ style dinner at our wedding. I HIGHLY recommend a buffet in general. They did an amazing presentation and it tasted perfect, just like our trial tasting....
The apps were plenty to go around, we didn't run out (which is often a complaint at weddings right?) The spread again, was really pretty.
They were super professional, the waitstaff, bartenders and buspeople were all amazing, friendly & accomodating.
A special compliment to Shelly Fronk (who assisted me as well as a "pre-wedding & day of" coordinator through Love at First Bite). If you can, work with her b/c she's fabulous.

We used Love at First Bite for a volunteer recognition event with 300 attendees. Food was heavy appetizers and LAFB knocked it out of the park. The mashed potato bar alone was a huge hit, but all the food was excellent. We have skewers, sliders, cucumber cups, fruit - all kinds of tastes to allow for all different people. LAFB also handled the bars and rentals so it was a one stop shop for us. I would highly recommend them. All of our attendees raved about the event.Sent on 08/23/2015

The caterer was 2.5 hours late to our wedding and did not follow the details of our contract. Our families & wedding party had to rush to set up the entire reception during the cocktail hour when it should have been ready prior to the ceremony beginning. The reception duration was cut in half due to this huge error. The catering manager passed our family and our complaints to the owner who was unaware of many of the details and not present the day of the wedding. The owner has refused to admit their mistake and the disaster they caused.Sent on 08/30/2012
The stress we have experienced after the wedding has been far worse than the stress & grief we felt on the day of our wedding. There is no excuse for their unprofessionalism.
Love At First Bite Catering's reply:We are very distressed by this review; no one should have any stress added on their special day. But this review is not factual and is under dispute. I welcome anyone to ask us or please review with the BBB.
