Marna's did an amazing job with our wedding food. We wanted our guests to be able to mingle, drink and eat while enjoying themselves and Marna's helped make that a reality. Numerous servers passed beautiful displayed apps all thrush the evening that were raved about for days. The displays were stunning and the carved watermelon was absolutely amazing!! The service was wonderful and very easy to work with! Our guests couldn't stop commenting on the awesome food!!! Thank you so much for helping our vision come to life!!!
We absolutely LOVE Marna's. We had our wedding in Costa Rica, so be able to come back and share Costa Rican food with our family & friends at our wedding reception was fabulous! Their food is amazing and we got compliments on it the whole night!
We were so excited for our guests to have the meal provided by Marna's Catering, and they did not disappoint. I would hire them again for any event - the food was wonderful, we got many options to choose from, they were priced right per plate for our intimate wedding, and the service was spectacular. Can't say enough - we will absolutely hire Marna's again for the next event when we need a caterer.
Marna’s catering has amazing to work with! Immediately when we tried the truffle potatoes we fell in love. They made it a point we had an amazing experience every step of the way!
Marna's Catering catered our wedding on May 12, 2018 and what a great experience it was! We worked with Nicole to plan and with Carlos to execute the day. We served a family-style meal for 225 people including chardonnay chicken, cap sirloin steak, lemon zest asparagus, and truffle mashed potatoes (oh my gooodness...those mashed potatoes).
Carlos was so accommodating! We ended up needing one extra vegetarian meal, which he whipped up on the fly. We also had two unexpected children for dinner and he was able to calmly figure out what to do.
Overall, Marna's Catering was a wonderful, affordable, unique, and delicious addition to our wedding day. All of our guests raved about the meal and the family-style service! We also loved their watermelon carving (two crossed hockey sticks with our initials) and fruit display, options for food, and openness to ideas to make our day perfect!
OMG. The best!! We used Marna's Catering for our Rehearsal dinner and it was incredible. They cooked on site, supplied all the table cloths and dishes, we're so easy to work and the food was absolutely delicious. People still talk about how amazing it was! I highly recommend using Marna's for any event you need catering. We will definitely be using them again!
We loved Marnas! From the tasting to the big day they were super easy to work with and accommodating! People loved the food (even our chef friends) and family style was so fun!
Marna's catered our wedding and we had nothing but great reviews from all of our guests! Everything was fabulous!! Thank you guys!!
Marna's was amazing! The food was excellent. Their prices are by far the best I found. I couldn't be happier! Rolando even went the extra mile and ordered a S'mores bar for us. We couldn't be happier! Thank-you!!!
Marnas was awesome! I had a hard time finding a caterer for our wedding because it seemed like all menus were the same - until I found Marnas. We loved their options, their pricing, and how easy they were to work with (thanks Nicole!). Everyone enjoyed the food (literally EVERYONE commented on the mashed potatoes), and it was fabulous to have flatware, plates, coffee, and cake cutting all included in our passed apps/buffet set up. We had one slip up (our plate chargers were nowhere to be found), but in the end, that detail did not matter at all. I'd definitely recommend them!
Rolando and his staff were very easy to work with and did a wonderful job!! We were so please with our choice! The guests still talk about how great the food was family style!
We came across Marna's as one of the approved vendors at our site, a park within the Three Rivers Park District. Marna's was the 4th or 5th tasting we did and we were quickly blown away by them. Their prices were about midway of all the approved vendors, but the taste was the best, not to mention unique, and therefore they were an easy decision. We had about 150-200 guests so we went with a few passed appetizers, and a buffet dinner with two entrees. They were very flexible and offered great service and inspiration when it came to the menu options. Communication was very smooth throughout the whole process. They arrived when they said they would, and everything exceeded expectations. Apps were delicious, the dinner was just as we remembered, and our guests as well as us got a great kick out of the fruit carving. The only thing I wish could be different was their new warehouse address actually being posted on their website. It was very easy to get it from them, however, there were a few times I needed it, and had to spend some time looking up previous emails/texts, so it would've been nice to have that on their website. They have been renovating, so I don't see that by any means as a reflection, just something that would help for the future. All in all, Marna's was a wonderful caterer and great to have on our big day. Thank you so much Marna's!! We would recommend you to anyone.
Great catering service that was responsive and always there to answer questions and help plan our wedding. The food was awesome too
I cannot say enough about Marnas Catering. The food was amazing and the people were GREAT to work with. Our guests kept coming up to me all night talking about how good the food was. It wasn't "wedding food" it was actually good food!! Marnas was always on top of everything and was profession, very responsive, and helpful any time I had a question or concern. The food you try in the tasting is exactly what you get at your wedding. It is delicious and a great value. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping us have the most perfect day we could have dreamed of!!
Nicole was wonderful to work with and allowed us to do more than one tasting after my fiance moved back from out of state. Everyone complimented our food at the wedding! I seriously am in love with their mashed potatoes myself. The fact that they cook on-site made a real difference. Nicole also recommended a vendor for our cake and cupcakes and worked with our bartender the night of the wedding to provide seamless service.
We loved working with Marna's Catering. We planned everything remotely, but did have one in person meeting with Rolando. He was so accommodating about meeting us when we were in town. Marna's food was delicious, but the best part about Marna's is the transparent pricing. We felt like most caterers have extra charges for coffee, dishes, linens, tips, cutting cake, etc. With Marna's almost everything is included with the price of dinner. So when you compare Marna's to other places make sure to write out the full cost with everything included. That's when you will realize that Marna's provides great food and service at a really reasonable price. Finally we were able to use Liquid Motion for our alcohol serving, which Rolando from Marna's put us in touch with. This company was very flexible and reasonably priced and I'm not sure we would have found them without booking Marna's.
Great service, easy to work with, delicious food! Highly recommend!
I could not give Marna's Catering anything but a *glowing* review. For starters, Rolando is an incredibly warm individual who wants to deliver a creative and couple-specific menu for your wedding. Rolando's flexibility and responsiveness are noteworthy within the wedding food industry.
I had met with a couple other caterers who only wanted to give me a canned wedding menu that was generic in every way. I am a self-proclaimed foodie and rarely enjoy any wedding food. Obviously I could be biased but I can honestly say the food that Marna's was able to serve was all around delicious and visually appealing to beat. Marna's wants to deliver an experience that is unique, fresh and tasty!
Our wedding had to be relocated two weeks prior to the date and Rolando was more than accommodating and kind as we had to revise the food plan. He was empathetic to the scenario and more than welling to help ease the burden of the last minute change as needed. I would highly recommend Marna's Catering on all accounts!
Rolando and his team are the best. The food was amazing! We ended up having two tastings with them because we had a hard time deciding what we wanted, and because we loved everything we tried! We ended up serving food that we didn't even taste test beforehand because we trusted them that much. Unique food, so much flavor! We've gotten many compliments! If there is something that you want and don't see it on the menu, ask! They definitively came across as genuinely wanting to make the client happy/ give us what we wanted. And the fruit carving was an adorable addition.
When I think of food at a wedding, I get bored. We knew with our wedding that we wanted to do something different and fun. When I first met Rolondo from Marna's Catering, I knew this was going to be the guy. He was genuine, friendly, always made time for us and our never ending questions....but most of all the food was next level! You want to wow people at your wedding with the food? You go with Marnas. Food that is made from scratch and with authentic flavors passed down through his family. We were blown away by the food and the time he spent with us. He genuinely cares and you are not just a number to him. You will know everything that I'm talking about once you sit down for a taste test and look over the menu!
Marna's is outstanding! We were wedding planning from out of state, therefore, needed a caterer who was reputable, reliable, and would provide an incredible meal. Ultimately chose Marna's because they were a great value and after conversations felt they would meet our expectations. A personal meal testing was set up to accommodate our travel timelines and the selections were amazing! Marna's was able to accommodate any of our needs on day of and provided an excellent meal. Thank you so much!
Extremely easy to work with. Food was awesome! Staff was so courteous. They made sure my bride had food throughout the night, kept bringing her little plates so she would have something to eat:)
Do a tasting and meet Rolando.
Marnas was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Rolando was extremely accommodating and helped relieve a lot of stress with venue and last second menu changes! The food was amazing; we received compliments from just about every guest on the appetizers and immense selection! I would recommend Marnas for any event, and we hope to be able to do business with them again in the future!
We hired Marna's Catering for our wedding (May 2016 - 120 guests) and they did a fantastic job. They went above and beyond from the first time we had a tasting with them to the conclusion of our wedding evening. The food was delicious and the presentation was spot on. Rolando and Nicole were both very personal with us and were very quick to answer emails and phone calls with the many questions that I was able to come up with. The moment I knew I'd be hiring them was at the tasting when I could hear Rolando chopping up food in the kitchen. My husband and I love to cook and pay close attention to where our ingredients come from; we could tell Rolando has the same passion about cooking and food as we do. Marna's Catering is a local, dedicated, family owned business and I absolutely recommend hiring them for your event.
