Catered Too was the caterer for our wedding in 2012. Our contact, Teri Schenkel, was very easy to work with. During the initial process, we were actually looking into 2 possible caterers and Teri was always so responsive and her follow ups were great (we love responsive vendors because who wanted to deal with extra stress, wondering if messages went through and/or if things would get done?). Food tasting was great. It was an event itself and one of the servers really made it fun for us. The food was delicious (even my mom who didn't like fish raved about the sea bass from Catered Too!). We really felt the personalized service as Teri worked with us on the things that we would like to have and customize.

"This is too good for wedding food!" That is what we heard over and over throughout the evening of my daughter's wedding. The food was amazing! Our meal was set up in stations and our guests loved it! Not only was the food fantastic, but the staff was just as good. Teri was so easy to work with, responding quickly to every email that was sent. We always felt as though our event was her priority over all others, even months in advance. Teri and her crew, in particular Craig, made sure that every detail was of my daughter's wedding day was perfect! Perfection from Catered Too!

Catered Too! made our wedding day wonderful. The staff was so attentive to our needs and went out of their way to take care of details that let us actually enjoy the reception! The food was fantastic, everyone who I have run into after the event stopped to tell me how much they enjoyed eating. Catered Too! has an artistic approach to food service that added beauty and function. Out of the many decisions we made for that day, using Catered Too! was by far the best!

Catered Too was great! I always had a quick response to any questions I had. The catering manager was full of great ideas to create the menu we wanted and listened to what ideas I had as well. The day-of staff had excellent people skills, worked hard and made everything run smoothly.

There was one error on their part where they forgot to include an appetizer we had ordered. Luckily they had reviewed the menu with my mom a few hours before the start time and she caught the missing menu item. Catered too staff was able to get the missing food over in plenty of time for the reception. I still give them 5 stars because everyone makes mistakes and they fixed the error quickly and without complaint...

Food was a little pricey, but I think all wedding catering is pricey so I won't take my perspective necessarily on that item. They did work with us to bring in our own beverages to keep the cost down as well as on adjusting the menu. I would work with them again in a heartbeat.

Catered Too made my wedding day a breeze. Teri helped me plan the menu and executed it to perfection. Not only was the food excellent it was also memorable. From the appetizer to the final course the service was impecable, the food was cooked well and served at the perfect temperature. Teri coordinated everything with the venue so after our intial meeting I didn't have to put another thought into it. I was also seriously impressed with the value for the money, I had interviewed several caterers before choosing Catered Too and no one even came close to what Teri was able to do. I would recommed Catered Too in a heartbeat!

Teri at CateredToo was great! CateredToo hosted our champagne/cocktail reception at Montalovo. Everything was beautifully set up! Teri is super organized and so flexible!

We love the San Jose Museum of Art and first found out about CateredToo! from there because they run the museum cafe (CafeToo!). They were the first ones that called me back when I called a few local caterers and because of the sweetness and vibrant personality of one one of the event coordinators (Betsy), I was sold. It wasn't just the service and good vibe we received natrually from her, the chef and the staff, but the FOOD was, of course GREAT! They definitely catered to our food needs and also provided decor for our reception hall. Our reception overview was totally non-traditional (backyard picnic) and they definitely helped pull it off by adding awesome picnic linens, galvanized bins, and other misc. "backyard" style decor. We loved it! These are truly the best at what they do! Highly recommended.
