We can accommodate any event, from a formal sit – down service to a more casual buffet – style reception. Guest favorites include our Italian Buffet, our B.B.Q. Buffet or our Mexican Buffet.

If you are looking for a wedding caterer, please, look no further than East Side Mario's. My husband and I had the pleasure of working with ESM for our wedding on May 21st, and they were probably one of the highlights of the night. As soon as we arrived at our reception venue, my husband and I stayed tucked away for the cocktail hour, wondering when we'd be able to send out our bridal party to steal some food for us. We didn't have to worry about that, because within 2 minutes a server walked in with an entire tray of hors d'oeuvres for us to snack on while we waited. I kid you not, I almost cried from that initial kind and attentive detail, and it didn't stop there. Throughout the night the servers and Daniella (the manager) made sure that we and all of our guests were taken care of.

Not only that, the food was DELICIOUS! Our guests could not stop raving about the food, and many said that it was one of, if the not THE, best menus they had had at a wedding. Stuffed mushrooms, chicken picatta, tri-tip, the list goes on and on. And the price was FANTASTIC! Their prices really cannot be beat for the amount of food, and all of the extras that come with the base price, especially in such high price areas like Los Angeles and the OC. Besides this, ESM just added a whole other element of fun to the wedding. I will always remember looking around the venue and seeing some of the servers busting out some dance moves with some of our little guests. They helped make the wedding fun, and really made it seem like a family atmosphere. I can't say enough good things about East Side Mario's, and I am so thrilled that we chose them to cater our wedding. Thank you all for everything you did for us, and keep up the amazing work!

I can't say enough about ESM Catering! They were recommended to me by my wedding coordinator, and I'm so happy they were. I got so man compliments on the food (we served chicken & tri tip), and people even went out of their way to tell me how nice the staff and bartenders were! It was awesome. Truly professional. My dad wanted a very special chimichurri made as a side option, and a special rub for the meat, and they were so kind to accommodate. I never expected somebody would do that.

One very important part that made my evening was that somebody on their staff made a plate for my husband and I, so it just appeared at our seat after we had said hello to a few people. It felt magical, and I don't think I would have eaten if it weren't for that. Great pricing, great options, everything is absolutely delicious. Thank you, thank you to Mario's for making my wedding day more than I could have imagined!

Words cannot express how impressed I am with Catering by Mario's!

Initially, my now-husband and I wanted to have a taco truck for our wedding. However, we changed our tune after I visited a bridal showcase in Long Beach. Catering by Mario's was one of the vendors with a booth, and I fell in love with the pasta the company was showcasing. After that, we decided to go with Mario's.

We worked closely with Danielle Mancha who is AWESOME! She is extremely sweet, kind, and professional. Whenever we had questions or concerns, she was readily available and always responded in a quick manner.

Danielle was also kind enough to allow us to have two taste testings, since our parents were not present during the first scheduled taste test.

We decided to serve our guests the Pasta Festival, where individuals can tell chefs exactly how they want their own pasta, and it was a HUGE hit! Our guests still can't stop talking about it, as well as the salad (the name escapes me), that had strawberries, apples, walnuts and gorgonzola. The stuffed mushrooms were also crowd-pleasers!

The staff hired to serve our event was also fantastic. When my dad got sick at the reception, one of the servers (I feel terrible that I can't remember her name) promptly brought my dad ice cold water and a cool towel. She kept doing this for the remainder of the evening without being prompted. That impressed me so much.

I definitely recommend Catering by Mario's to future brides and grooms. It's totally worth it!

We had the pleasure of working with East Side Mario's catering company on our wedding day on August 3rd, 2014. We worked very closely with Danielle, the catering sales manager. Danielle was always very kind, courteous, informative, patient, and professional. She made the whole wedding catering process so easy.

Most importantly, all of the food was divine. My guests are still telling me how much they loved the food. We actually loved their tiramisu so much we made it our passed wedding cake! Everything was made on-site. They even baked the bread loaves that day. They also made a point to bring us (the bride and groom) appetizers and meals to our table. It was probably the only reason we were able to eat the food, because we were otherwise very busy entertaining our guests. They were also right on point price-wise. They gave us numerous opportunities to save money (which was very much appreciated) and included bringing our own alcohol for the bar and also giving us the option of buffet-style serving. They even packaged up all the leftover food for us to bring home. Prices were very fair and reasonable. We ended up paying about 7k, but that included ALL the bells and whistles- Unlike the other caterers we looked at which were twice the price and could barely offer us the basics. They also assisted in helping set up place settings and tablescapes. It really came together and was simply beautiful. I really loved it. And for a small fee, they offered us a cleaning staff to help get the venue back together at the end of the night. Those ladies ROCKED! They cleaned up everything so quickly! Definitely take advantage of that option.

I am so grateful to the staff at East Side Mario's. We may have to make a point of coming on our anniversary just to enjoy that food again. :) Thank you Danielle and the rest of the Mario's team for making our day so memorable and easy! We will definitely keep you guys in mind as a reference to people interested in catering services.

East Side Mario's catered my wedding and everything about it was amazing! Rick, the manager at the restaurant was very helpful and offered great advice and ideas for a seamless wedding day. The tasting was a real treat, so much delicious food was brought out to us.. and once again Rick was able to answer all our questions about combining different foods and the best ones for serving, etc...

On the wedding day everyone was raving about the food, and the servers brought plates to myself and my bride ( even though we selected buffet service ), I thought that was pretty nice of them. You really won't find a better deal than East Side Mario's; their prices are great, the service is even better, and at the end of the wedding they gave us all the extra food. Needless to say we had some happy guests!

Give them a call and talk to Rick if you can, I really can't thank him and his crew enough for an amazing evening!
