Kim and her team catered our wedding on 10/18 at the Purple Orchid Resort & Spa in Livermore.

We had a buffet dinner for 150 guests served outside. It was simply amazing! So many of our guests came to tell us that the food was delicious!

Working with Kim was great from the start. We had a multiple tastings with her and things tasted the same (aka DELICIOUS) every single time. She has a huge variety of menu choices, you're guaranteed to find something delicious on there. Also, her prices are very reasonable and include china and flatware.

On wedding day, everything ran smoothly. She even had her staff bring my husband and I plates of hors d'oeuvres at our suite since we were signing the marriage license and taking other photos during cocktail hour. These were quickly devoured by our wedding party. But SURPRISE, there was another plate waiting for us at our sweetheart table at the reception. They also packed us an extra dinner plate for later that night. They were so thoughtful!

Kim also does desserts & we had her cater our dessert bar! There were tartlets, mousse, cookies, fruit, creme brûlée, jelly jar desserts, and beignets! We also added on some savory late night snacks, sliders (DEFINITELY GET THESE) and milkshakes & fries. I'm a little sad my husband and I missed most of the desserts, but the guests told us they were delicious.

Everything was amazing, we were in great hands with Kim & her team.

THANK YOU KIM!!

Kim at Bon Vivant took fantastic care of us on our wedding day. She was incredibly flexible in helping us build our menu and personalizing our special day. All of the food was wonderful alongside her support staff. We feel blessed that we found her to make our wedding perfect, and we highly recommend her to anyone searching for a caterer in the Bay area. Schedule a tasting with her, and I'm sure you'll be convinced too.

Bon Vivant did an amazing job catering our wedding. The food was delicious and the service was top notch. We had a backyard wedding, so, logitstically the caterer had alot to do. They did everything and went above and beyond. We had a buffett and they served our older guests who would have a harder time going through the line. They accomadated people that had (unforeseen) special food requests and generally just made everyone feel so welcome. Everytime I saw the servers, they had a smile on their face and were always there to ask if I needed anything.

I would recomment Bon Vivant for any of your catering needs and plan on using them again whenever the need arises!

I could not have asked for a better Buffet! I felt like we were at a Five Star Restaurant. The sample tasting between my husband and I was a perfect match to the event day. I received many compliments on how wonderful the food was. The staff was professional and Kim, the caterer, is a wonderful well trained person! Thank you for a wonderful meal. I wish I could have a plate right now!

Kim Bell of Bon Vivant and her crew did a wonderful job and I have been told the food was great at our wedding. We didn't have much time to eat, but I know the food tasted great!

The appetizers were delicious and my guests loved that they were passed around by wait staff rather than at an appetizer table

My husband and I wanted to do an ice cream sundae bar instead of the traditional cake. Kim was able to accommodate that request for a very affordable cost. She was even willing to fulfill some of our toppings requests. Many people at my wedding have commented on how good the ice cream was and what a cool idea it was.

I would have given all 5 stars, but I was a bit disappointed with the small plate of appetizers given to the wedding party. I don't think there was even enough for everyone to get 1 appetizer. Also, Kim had told me she would have plated meals set aside for me and my husband for after the wedding. When we got to our room, there was no food for us. Luckily, we weren't too hungry, but I was a bit disappointed that we were told it would be there and it wasn't.

Overall, Bon Vivant is a wonderful catering company. Kim is great and personable. When I went to a tasting at her place, I was completely impressed with her professionalism and variety of foods. I will definitely recommend Bon Vivant!

Kim Bell and her team at Bon Vivant are terrific. If you want a five star experience with a caterer in the Bay Area, you would be nuts not to consider her services. The only regret we have about our dinner is that we were too busy to share a glass of wine with the chef herself! We will look forward to the next opportunity we get to work with Kim. If you're considering hiring Bon Vivant, feel free to contact me directly for details. Caveat: I could go on forever about how good the food was...
