My experience with A Joy Wallace Catering was nothing short of magical. My expections of service, food quality and entire experience were not only met but greatly surpassed. I cannot speak highly enough of Katia. She and her team are not only talented but work with such care that it was hard to say goodbye when the wedding was over. I had the luck and honor to meet Joy herself and it is clear to see how her teams carry out her expections and passion to the fullest. If you splurge on anything for your event, let it be with this company.

Working with A Joy Wallace Catering was an absolute dream. From the start, we felt special like if we were the only event they were working on. On our wedding day, they were absolute perfection including offering our guests umbrellas from the ceremony to the reception when unexpected rain came in. My groom and I felt like royalty with the attention they gave us. The food was delicious - chicken was juicy and risotto was perfection. Our guests could not have been more happy.

From day one, I knew I wanted food to be a priority at my wedding. My husband and I are both foodies, so we knew we wanted to use the best caterer in Miami. We began searching as soon as we got engaged, because we knew we wanted to take our time finding the very best! From the very first phone call I ever made to AJW, they were such a pleasure to work with. Sara Silver was so extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and her attention to detail was incredible.
The day of our tasting was nothing short of magical. I knew that I would enjoy the tasting more than the wedding just because of all the emotion of the day, so I really soaked in every moment of the tasting. We sat at a beautifully set table with a gorgeous flower centerpiece. We got to taste every single piece of food that we were going to serve at our wedding. We even got to taste every bread selection the guests would have. Every single dish outdid the last. We could not believe that food at a wedding could taste as good as a 5-star restaurant! To make the experience even more special, Joy herself sat at our table with us throughout the entire 3 hour tasting! What an unforgettable experience!
Our wedding day was just as perfect! This top notch catering company served 253 people at The Bath Club in Miami Beach. All my guests were so impressed with the service and they could not stop talking about how amazing the food was. My husband and I have been to hundreds of events and AJW has been by far the best!!! I cannot thank AJW enough for the wedding of my dreams!

Working with A Joy Wallace was a great experience. I worked with Sabdy and Cristine and they were absolutely amazing throughout the entire process. Every time I changed my mind, asked for a favor, or simply had a question they were there and more than willing to ease my stress. They took care of everything in regards to tables, chairs, silverware, linens, glassware, food & drinks; it was a big load off my back to know I had such great professionals handling such important aspects of my wedding. They met with me anytime I requested and always made themselves available, even after hours. I had a specific drink I wanted to serve & some late night snacks I wanted to bring in and Cristine waited for me after 5:00 PM to get the stuff. Cristine was present the day of the wedding and made sure everything ran smoothly. They paid so much attention to detail that one of our appetizers had BBQ sauce & my husband noted he did not like BBQ sauce at the tasting and his platter, the day of wedding, was without BBQ! It's the small things that make their service truly exceptional. The staff was amazing - all of my guests enjoyed the food and never had an empty glass. The food was exceptional, I still have people asking me about the "yuca aligot" today - highly recommend it!

We had an AMAZING experience with this company. First, when we parked they had a special spot reserved for us with our name and that was the smallest detail but a special touch. Then we sat down at a decorated table as if it were wedding guests and Joy Wallace sat down for the tasting with us. That was absolutely incredible, and so important to know that the owner of this company takes everything personal and serious. As we were eating we saw an old friend of ours and to know that they employ great people is also so important to us. We hired them for our wedding day and were not disappointed. Usually wedding food tastings are always better than the actual reception, but almost all our guests commented on how amazing the food was and we were so pleased. Joy also came to our wedding and it really was an amazing experience, I would absolutely hire them again for a big event. Food was great, service was amazing (we had a server follow us around during cocktail hour while we were taking pictures, getting us drinks, etc.) Honestly, I would do it all over again. Loved the experience, food, and the service they provided.

As much as we booked our venue, Comber Hall, because we loved the space, we booked it because we loved and trusted the site's dedicated client coordinator, Tatiana Cardenas. From the start, she was very transparent about cost, understood what we wanted, and made every effort to personalize our affair.

As for A Joy Wallace Catering, the quality of the food and the service was beyond compare. Our guests raved about the food --- it was delicious and memorable. The staffing was professional and robust. We are not party people and we want to throw another party so that we can work with Tatiana and A Joy Wallace Catering team again.
