Devoted Catering (Amiee D'maris and Peter Alan) did a great job catering our 120-person wedding reception at Alumni House in Berkeley, CA. Although they weren't cheap, the food and service were wonderful and we definitely feel that we got our money's worth. To their credit, they were also willing to work with us to bring down the costs while still keeping the quality high. We appreciated their philosophy of sustainable, local food; we really enjoyed the wide variety of options at our tastings; and most importantly, their food is DELICIOUS. My husband is still talking about the succulent beef short ribs and luscious Stilton-stuffed figs. We even ended up getting our wedding cake from them - it's an unconventional and rustic-looking cake, but oh so good!

On the day of our wedding, Devoted helped with lots of little details, including helping us unload the wine from our van and carefully setting up the tables exactly according to our instructions. I had only a few minor gripes, such as a long time lag between the appetizers and the first course, and an unexpected charge for overtime when we ended the event only a few minutes late. However, in the grand scheme of things, we were very satisfied with Devoted and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone in the Bay Area.

We hired Devoted Catering to manage our catering, rentals, and wedding coordination. Our food was outstanding--many guests said that it was the best meal that they had ever eaten at a wedding. Zoe was our detailed and relaxed guide throughout the planning process and on our big day. From choosing a meal that reflected us, to accommodating vegetarian and gluten free guests on our budget, she was my go to woman. Sarah, our coordinator, came onto our team later, but she matched Zoe's meticulousness. I give Devoted a 4-star rating on responsiveness only because I occasionally had to wait for responses to less urgent e-mails during our planning process. And, we never managed to collect a few non-essential items (a stool, some cords, etc.) that our coordinator removed from the venue at the end of the evening, despite attempts to pick these up or have them dropped off to us. That said, with all of the essentials exceeding our expectations, this would not prevent me from recommending Devoted or using the company for future events.

The food these people make is delicious! I have received many, many comments from guests about how much they loved the food. Via our wedding planner, we worked with Devoted Catering and designed our own menu, inluding Filipino food to represent my husband's culture. They totally understood what we were going for with regard to the food and were open to our suggestions, yet definitely told us when something wouldn't work. That is a hard balance for a vender to strike, but so important. Their staff on the day of was also very pleasant and our guests commented on how wonderful they were as well. Additionally, the advance tasting was very thorough and exceded our expectations - it is clear they put a lot of time into prepping for us and we appreciated that. Wish I could eat Devoted's food every night!

Devoted catered our wedding in August 2011. The food was amazingly good. We had a completely vegetarian reception, with about half the items vegan, and Devoted handled this really well.

There were some problems with customer service during the planning process - Tiffany was the event planner that we corresponded with, and we found her difficult to communicate with on several occasions. We also had significant trouble dealing with the owners after our event regarding a refund we were owed. It was finally resolved, but not without considerable frustration and hassle.

We really enjoyed working with Devoted Catering. We were attracted to them because they use local and many organic ingredients. The food is delicious. There were unfortunately some miscommunications on our wedding day; I guess I had not clearly communicated that we did not want meat at our wedding, and they added a duck appetizer as an "added extra." They were sincerely trying to add something nice for us, and when I was upset about this, they immediately took away the dish and worked with me to refund part of our price. This process took a bit of time since they were restructuring, but ultimately they were responsive and willing to work with us.

There was also a miscommunication regarding table assignments, where some of my guests ended up at the wrong tables, or there was a table missing or something. I am not sure if that was the fault of the caterer or the venue.

Overall though, the food is delicious, and the staff very professional and responsive! Just make sure to be very clear in your communications.

Thank you, Devoted Catering!
