Everyone absolutely loved the food at our wedding. We were so impressed!! The only negative would be the lack of communication. We would email our contact and sometimes we would not hear back for weeks or until we sent another email.

The food was absolutely delicious at my wedding! My venue did all the serving, so our food was just dropped off, but it was all deliciously on point! We had the Tampa Roast, Chicken Marsala, Oven roasted potatoes, Caesar Salad, Veggies and rolls. We did 4 hot passed appetizers which were also very yummy. Everyone had great comments about the food and the staff at Catering by the Family is very friendly and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend them!

We booked Catering by the Family after having issues with tastings. We would go to “group” or “event” tasting where we would sample food, but none of it was what we wanted. We were told we wouldn’t be able to taste what would be served at our wedding as what we wanted was not offered at the group tastings or events. We wanted Cuban or Spanish style food to fit our theme of Gasparilla and have local cuisine. It was very important to us to taste the food we would be paying for and having at our wedding so we did not want to book with a company where we didn’t taste the food. Juan had assured us we could try some of the food at our tasting. When we arrived, we were the only people there, which amazing because at group tastings we couldn’t find anyone to talk to and things got overwhelming. A table was set up in our colors just for us and Juan. I didn’t even tell him what our colors were; he just went with our theme. The settings were perfect. When it came time to do our tasting, so much food was brought out that we got to try all the Spanish food they had to offer. Everything tasted amazing. We booked right then and there. During year we emailed back and forth. Email replies were a little slow, which had me a little concerned. When it came to the wedding day, everything was perfect. Juan came out and greeted us, which I was so thankful for. That one small gesture meant a lot! I got so many people telling me the food was amazing and the wait staff and bartenders were so nice and wonderful! I even had a waiter come to us with plates with all the food offered at the buffet. Everything tasted above and beyond and for the price you can’t beat it! We highly recommend them!

We had an 80th Birthday party for my Mother in Law. We served a buffet called "The Kings Table." There were approximately 60 guests. Although this was not a wedding, it was a mid-sized event/party. The food was incredible. We had a manned carving station with Tenderloin, fruits, hot and cold dips, chicken with a saffron sauce, tuna wontons, chocolate fondue, etc. The seasoning and sauces provided were excellent. Oma and Rene were our servers and they were very prepared and eager to make the party successful. They made set-up and tear down painless. They were very polite with all the guests. They never allowed any foods to run out. The visual appeal of the tables and set up was very professionally done. The guests constantly requested the name of the caterer. We didn't have one hiccup and "Sandy" was the person who I worked with initially. She was quick to make suggestions based on the information I gave her. She was also quick to provide a quote and followed up. I live in another state and I was hesitant to commit to a caterer, but the quality of food, assistance and servers were so much better than expected. My family owned a restaurant for more than 25 years and I don't give compliments unless they are earned. I don't know anyone here personally before doing business last weekend, so I have no vested interest in making a false claim. I just felt compelled to share our delight with the service and quality we received. I would highly recommend Catering by the Family for a wedding, party or any special event. Our 80 year old Nana was thrilled with who we chose.

Catering by the Family was the perfect choice for our wedding. They were very accommodating of the budget we set and were willing to work with us to create a menu we could afford. The food was fantastic, and Juan's personality was great! He made the whole process very enjoyable and personal. The staff was very friendly and made the reception very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend them to future brides and grooms. Make sure to ask for Juan Concheiro! :)

Juan at Catering by the Family was absolutely amazing! I had searched several places and Catering by the Family was actually the most affordable, but you would never guess from the responsiveness and quality we received for our wedding. The initial tasting was spectacular and we even got to take the rest of the food home with us! It was so good! Catering by the Family provided all the food, napkins, and linens for the wedding. We were extremely impressed. Even some of our hard to please guests, LOVED the food! We also opted for the smores bar which was a huge hit. Be sure to check out catering by the family, and ask for Juan. You will not be dissappointed. :)
