Catering Connection impressed us from the beginning. The food during the taste test was delicious and was overall the best price that fit our budget. Philippe was very attentive and responsive during the whole planning process, replying very quickly to any questions I had. He took care of all the rentals too since my venue came with nothing. The wedding was so much fun and went off perfectly. Such a great team to have make my day special! (Also, my wedding was June 21, not sure why it defaults to July).

Omigod I cannot say enough good things about Catering Connection. Working with Phi and Ursula for the menu and ordering the rentals was amazing! They were so very knowledgeable and professional, Phi was so responsive and didn't mind when I would ask a billion questions and then more! Seriously, I really think they have got to be the best Catering vendors in Santa Barbara. I strongly recommend using them for your catering. The food turned out amazing and our guests could not stop talking about how delicious the pork and fish dinner was and the mini beef wellingtons for appetizers!! Ursula even made sure to set aside extra appetizers for us so we could enjoy the food ourselves when greeting our wedding guests. They were just superb!

Catering Connection was the utmost of professionalism from the first time we contacted them through the execution of the event, cleanup and follow up. They were hugely responsive and flexible. The staff was mature, pulled together and professional. We have received countless compliments on the delicious food.

I was the Event Planner and Maid of Honor for my sister and am so appreciative to Philippe and Ursula for making me feel so comfortable and allowing me to enjoy the wedding instead of work it.

I would HIGHLY recommend Catering Connection and look forward to working with them in the future.

I could not begin to say enough about Philippe and the Catering Connection team. From begging to end, Philippe was a pure joy to work with. The food was amazing, our rentals were perfect, and he really acted as a coordinator on the day of the wedding. Philippe and his team goes above and beyond to make your event beautiful. We had so many compliments on how the food was so good, how the wedding was so beautiful and how it seemed to flow so smoothly. This is in credit to the work that Philippe and his team put in. He took us through the process of picking the food for our event and the rentals and even arrived early that day to coordinate the set up of the rentals. They were by far our favorite vendor and I would recommend them for a wedding or any big event to anyone and everyone.

Philippe our coordinator was extremely helpful with all the details and was very flexible making appropriate recommendations within our wedding budget. I figured that the actual event food would be a little less precisely prepared (from the tastings) since the staff was working from a temporary kitchen and the party so large. Not so ! Everything was fresh, very tasty & well presented. Several of my foodie friends (one a former caterer herself) were very impressed. Service was excellent and friendly. Both bars ran smoothly as well. Two thumbs way up. Thanks.

Philippe Berger and Catering Connection were excellent. I have no hesitation in recommending Philippe and his company. We married at Gainey vineyard, CA in August 2013.

My wife and I live in Hong Kong and despite the difference in time zones between CA and Asia we thought Philippe was responsive to all emails and calls and did a great job with the food.

We have received so many genuine compliments from guests on the food and lighting (which Catering Connection also help arrange) when at so many weddings the food is average.

The pre wedding day tastings were also very useful in confirming to us before the wedding day that we had the right team and food choices.

Philippe was superb on the day ensuring not just the catering was up to his demanding standards but with many other aspects of the wedding that he took up himself to help out with.
