I had such a horrible experience with CA Catering, very similar in fact to another reviewer here. I wish I had read that review before booking them. The food wasn't cooked, the wrong number of tables were put out, I was surprised on the wedding day with decorations I didn't ask for, and we were interrupted on three occasions during the reception to be told of problems that were their fault-- including right before we were introduced for the first time as husband and wife. Because of their scheduling error, I was not allowed in the venue when promised and missed out on pre-ceremony pictures. During the planning process, they frequently did not return emails, and it was evident at the wedding that they hadn't read them. Most frustrating, we were blamed for the errors. On the plus side, we were told by guests that the cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres were good.

CA Catering, you went above and beyond our expectations for Stephanie & Scott's wedding this past Saturday. We received so many positive comments on the food, especially the Tomato Basil Bisque soup and the crab cakes - oh yes, and the grilled cheese station as well. My favorite was the Guacamole Bar. EVERYTHING was just perfect. You and your crew came in like little ants...took over the garage and the yard and in no time everything was set up and looked beautiful! And then, before we knew it you were gone in the same manner!! CA, you did little things for us that were not on your "to do" list...like going out to buy liquor that we didn't have. Also, you saw me trying to relight the floating pool candles and you took over and told me to go join the party. Thanks for all you did! You are on our "Highly recommend" list!!

I am not sure what happened between 2008 and 2011 but unfortunately I had a terrible experience with CA Catering. I'm not even sure where to begin and every time I think about them and the situation it truly breaks my heart because they did not show their commitment to our special day. So here goes:

Communication
They showed a lack of proper communication, professionalism and attention to detail. When I say they, I really mean CA as I had very little interaction with anyone else. There were multiple occasions where my emails would go unanswered and I had to follow up multiple times in order to get a response. I understand we are all busy and I don't expect an immediate response however allowing several days/weeks to go by without a response was a bit frustrating. Once I did get a response, all my questions would not be answered and I had to follow up again. Extremely frustrating!

Hors d’oeuvres and the dinner
The majority of the hors d’oeuvres were bland, tasteless and lacked presentation. The dinner was not much better. I heard this from multiple guests which was quite embarrassing. I was supposed to have a dual course menu of chicken and shrimp, however some people never received shrimp and those that did only received 1!? Some of our guests had to request for the shrimp which again was quite embarrassing and disappointing, considering the amount of money I paid him. My photographers never received their dinner. I was especially disappointed about this because they worked really hard all day and should have had a proper dinner. I can only imagine they were starving! When my sister inquired about the food for the vendors, she was told that guests will be served first and then the vendors, which is understandable, however this did not happen.

The signature drink
This was one of my biggest disappointments. I had specifically requested for a signature drink- pisco sour. Unfortunately, it did not taste authentic at all and it definitely did not taste the same as when I sampled it during the tasting. To be honest I am not sure if it even had pisco in it. I ordered one from the bar during a slow time and the bartender did not use a blender, no lime, and no egg. The purpose of the specialty drink was to add a special Peruvian touch, however it was embarrassing to serve this as a pisco sour.

Professionalism
We were disappointed that my husband and I were confronted about a table seating mishap as we were getting ready to walk out on to the dance floor for the first time as Mr. and Mrs. Plunkett. This was very bad timing and expected more from the staff than to be pressured and questioned at a crucial time.

Cupcake Tower (wedding cake)
Extremely disappointed by the cupcakes. The frosting of the cupcakes were all melted!! Butter cream was used even though I specifically requested cream cheese frosting. I cannot express how disappointed I was by this. Really?!? Who serves melted cupcakes?!?!

With all that being said I would obviously not recommend them to anyone. It was an extremely frustrating and disappointing experience. I hope this review helps someone out there!

Martha and C.A were the best there is!

Professionalism: Wonderful attitude, always there when you needed and full of details.
Value for Cost: One can live with the cost, it is not the least expensive because it provides with value and great food!
Flexibility: Exceptional!
C.A Catering made our day very special. From the Ice Sculpture, the wedding cake and its decor, the details in the food stations and all, there was not one of our guests who left the party unhappy. We are sure they got some clients from our party who will be requiring their services! They were on top of things and were present the day of the event!!!
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

CA & Company Catering is fantastic. From the beginning, C.A. really worked with us. Instantly, we developed a great relationship and he really gave it his all 100% of the time.

The food was great. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. All of our guests are still raving about how amazing everything was. And they couldn't get enough of the soy sauce fountain at the Sushi table.

C.A. really understood our vision of creating a fun way to serve food at our wedding and it turned out wonderful. He and his wife truly delivered a perfect day for us - it was more than we could have imagined.

I can't wait to plan another event so I will have the opportunity to work with him again.
