CATERING BYMARIO’S is a full – service catering company which offers a full range of catering services and packages. 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. Additionally, our “Build – Your – Own” Pasta Station is extremely popular. Here, your guests assemble their pasta entrées from a self – serve station, with a variety of toppings, fillings and sauces, and our chefs prepare the food in front of them, with their food being cooked to order. Our full service menu includes a variety of chicken or fish dishes, as well as Italian food or prime rib. Additionally, I am delighted to create a custom menu for our clients who have special preferences or desires. Read less

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!

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!

We had the privilege and opportunity of utilizing the catering services of East Side Mario’s for our wedding day. All we can say from the moment we stepped into to taste the food up to the day of our wedding is “Phenomenal”. We were treated with the upmost respect, customer service was superb and the food was second-to-none outstanding. We still continue to receive compliments on the service and food provided to our guest. The prices are reasonable and the service is 5 stars. I guarantee anyone who utilizes East Side Mario’s for their catering services you will never look back. We will definitely be utilizing East Side Mario’s for our catering needs and highly recommend them to anyone looking for great prices, food and excellent service.

Danielle, the catering manager is made my wedding day wonderful and she was very helpful in making sure I had all my food and beverage needs taken care of prior to my wedding. The food is the greatest and I am so glad I had the opportunity to work with them and have them as my caterer for my wedding. My family enjoys Eastside Marios sunday brunch and they felt the catering was tasted even better.

Danielle at East Side Mario's restaurant is fantastic to work with. She HANDS DOWN knows the ropes in regards to catering weddings and often guided me through common questions and concerns that brides and grooms have. She was easily accessible through email or phone and provided beyond stellar service on the actual wedding day. And to top it off, the food (filet mignon, salmon, and a vegetarian pasta dish) was excellent, the wait staff very friendly and helpful, ANDDD the price was by far the best in town. One of our favorite vendors -- we highly recommend Danielle and ESM Catering!!

What an AMAZING staff! I wasn't sure about how things would go since the main contact person for this place is a bit busy, but she assigned a great assistant and crew to handle our wedding and they were just so kind! They served appetizers to our guests, plated me and my husband's food so we didn't have to get up, and insured that everything was fully stocked, supplied and taken care of.

The packages all offer REAL china, glassware, silverware & table linens (which we used as overlays), as well as beverages (fruit punch, lemonade, iced tea) and they had great fees for cake cutting and coffee service. They even cut our fresh strawberries and placed them on each individual cake slice and served it to our guests! All this from one restaurant? Unbelievable!

When all was said and done, they boxed up our CRAZY amount of leftovers in containers for us to take home, left the kitchen IMMACULATE and were incredibly professional and courteous. They even emptied all the trash cans at the venue (!!). So glad we didn't end up with just your average cater! We saved so much!

Oh, and the food! Deeeeelish! Everyone loved the stuffed mushrooms, penne pasta and the yummie apple and Gorgonzola salad.
