We chose California Cuisine (CC) to cater our wedding after doing tastings with several caterers that were similarly priced. CC was by far the best choice. My husband is a chef, and it's difficult to impress him with food, but he was impressed with CC. Everything was seasoned well, and the dishes were flavorful and interesting. The presentation on everything was beautiful, from the spun honey on the cheese plate to the individual desserts at the end of the night. All of our guests raved about how good the food was.

Dominic was our point of contact from start to finish. He was very responsive to emails from the time we set up the tasting to the day of. He was super flexible too, providing items that other caterers would have nickled and dimed us. He went above and beyond, stopping by to check out the space a few days ahead to make sure everything was ready for the day of.

The accompanying staff were also super professional and a pleasure to work with. We would recommend California Cuisine to anyone, hands down.

California Cuisine Catering was on the required list of caterers for our venue The Darlington House and I am so happy we chose them. It had been a restaurant for years in our neighborhood but it closed two years ago and focused solely on its catering business. Our contact was Dominic. He was hilarious - very attentive and so accommodating. Because they don't have offices, we had our first meeting at Starbucks where we came up with a mock menu that included tray passed hors d'oeuvres (crab cakes, carnitas quesadillas and thai salad rules). We planned for a buffet of endive and pecan salad, bread and cie rolls, vegetarian butternut squash pasta, carved tri-tip and marsala chicken. However, we had to make a deposit first and book them without a tasting. I was a little hesitant about that but Dominic was so charming and the price was amazing compared to other places we had been too. Plus Dominic was incredibly flexible with the payment plans and eventual menu changes.

Once we had our tasting, I was totally happy we had gone with them. Dominic came to our house and made us a delicious preview meal himself. He also handled all the rentals since the Darlington house has no chairs or tables of his own. Everything came out beautifully. No regrets!

Where do I start with Dominic and California Cuisine...their food is absolutely fabulous! They catered our wedding at the Darlington House where they are a "preferred vendor". Everything that they make tastes wonderful and their staff is so polite and professional. Dominic was such a pleasure to work with through out the entire process. He sat down with us to plan the menu, the rentals, the theme and he made everything seem so easy. We met with many caterers but he was the only one that made us feel comfortable and at ease knowing everything would be done properly. The entire staff was wonderful to work with and I would use them again and again.

California Cuisine catered our wedding reception at the Cypress Room. The food and service were wonderful! Everything was well taken care of and it was a very stress-free experience. The Cypress Room is very elegant and requires minimal decorations. I would highly recommend both California Cuisine and The Cypress Room.
