There are not enough positive words for Catering Connection.

I will simply say this. If this review is part of your catering search, you can stop now.

Catering Connection is who you should and who you need to work with. You will be extremely happy, the food will be wonderful and your guest will be impressed that your food doesn't taste like typical wedding food. No dry chicken or cardboard steaks at Catering Connection. Everything is a foodie's dream. Our guests complimented us on the food more than anything else. Bigger than that, they help with rentals and streamline the process!

Again, your catering search is over...pick Catering Connection!!!!!!

Catering Connection was a joy to work with. Their proposal was head and shoulders above the rest. They really listened to what was important to us and offered a bid within our budget. I did not get that kind of attention or transparency from other catering companies in the area. I corresponded with Philippe Berger after a great tasting and hiring them to cater our wedding. He was responsive, understanding, patient, creative, and detail-oriented over the 9-10 months leading up to the wedding. He worked well with my venue, coordinator, and rentals vendor, and was basically a bride's dream come true. After I hired Catering Connection, I didn't have to do a thing!

Our guests raved about our buffet dinner and appetizers during Happy Hour. They LOVED them. We were very pleased with the service on our wedding day as well. Each member of their staff was courteous, knowledgable, and responsive. Phi was not at our wedding, but another member of the staff took control and it was flawless. I couldn't recommend them more highly.

Note to brides: Their food signage and uniforms (tie) have the Catering Connection logo on them. I made my own food signage, so it wasn't an issue for me but I wish I had known in advance.

I highly recommend Catering Connection to other brides. They are reasonably priced (especially in comparison to others in the area), friendly, delicious, and completely professional. Happy planning!

Working with Phi on our wedding was a dream! He was so organized with perfect attention to detail. We went with a slightly unconventional option for our evening wedding - breakfast! And they were completely willing to work with our idea within our specific budget. The food was fabulous and the staff working the event were so friendly and accommodating. Our guests repeatedly commented about how often people would come by and offer them appetizers during cocktail hour. It's never fun when you're anxiously waiting for food to come by you! Overall, working with Catering Connections was wonderful and I would highly recommend them for weddings or any catered event.

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.
