We got married in Monterey and we were initially hesitant to hire someone from San Jose to do the catering for our wedding, but we're so glad we did! We did an "upscale BBQ buffet" and everything was absolutely delicious. So many guest commented about how delicious the food was. Erika was also completely amazing throughout the planning process and accommodated all of the little changes we needed to make. I would highly recommend Caterman to anyone having a wedding on the Monterey Peninsula or anywhere else! They're fantastic!

Best caterer!! We couldn't have been happier with the service or food. They were very professional, organized, and helpful. They had plenty of servers and were very affordable considering the food was really good and the execution was elegant. I would highly recommend them!

Great food, great servers, great chef. They were all very attentive to the guests and went a little above and beyond what their requirements were. I was able to buy my own table cloths for cheaper, and they used them. Any change I wanted, she had a new estimate ready for me in a day. I have nothing to complain about them!

Caterman is awesome. We had food delivered to us in those ugly aluminum trays and to-go containers. Caterman arranged the food onto plates with great presentation that you'd expect at a chic restaurant. The table setting and service were great; I would definitely use them again.

Last night I had the best dream ever. It was my wedding day again. I couldn't be more bummed that it's over. All the hard work and planning definitely paid off. We had about 400 guests and all my dreams wouldn't have been possible without Caterman. They truly made my wedding what I wanted it to be. We worked w/ Erika and she was wonderful. From the first time I talked to her on the phone to seeing her at the event. We set up a tasting before deciding on a caterer and my mother is allergic to almost everything: wheat, eggs, dairy, certain greens, pork, and chicken. Basically anything that tastes good my mother is allergic to. So for our tasting they made her a special plate of food w/ everything she can eat. Then we had two site meetings to tour the facility. She was always on time and so easy to talk to. Everything I asked of her was performed w/o question and with a tone of "of course, it will be our pleasure" There was really nothing more I could ask for.

On the day of the event all the tables and drapery looked awesome and they even let my Aunt who was doing the centerpieces share their work space in back to prep. She even made some vegetarian plates for the few vegetarians we had and brought a special plate to my mother for her to eat. All of the wait staff that they hired was so nice and friendly. The food itself was awesome. We got three different passed Hors d'oeuvre: Chicken Pinewheel, Eggplant Bruschetta, and a Stuffed Mushroom. Everyone seemed to enjoy them all and they even brought us some on a plate to the head table to eat. For dinner we had a mixed green salad, roasted vegetables, tri-tip, salmon, and mashed potatoes. Everyone seemed to really enjoy their meals and the salmon was perfectly cooked.

The only bummer of the night I found out about later was one of our guests had a peanut allergy that they think was in the salad dressing. I let Erika know and she was very said and talked w/ their chef. There were notes in the order which I was told they are really good about following. I know mistakes happen and I'm very fortunate my guest was able to get the help he needed in time. Even despite this mishap I still love Caterman though and would use them for any of my future events.

My husband and I got married over Labor Day weekend and used Caterman for our catering, bartending, and linens/dinnerware rentals. Overall, we were really impressed with our whole experience with Caterman. We worked with Erika and being foodies, must've changed up the menu (and headcount/table setup) about 10 different times in the last couple weeks before the wedding. Erika was always incredibly professional whenever new changes were sent her way (patiently and very promptly dealing with our questions and never seeming irritated when doing so) and also very helpful (offering up her own input when we were being indecisive on menu options and throwing out helpful ideas wherever possible (as one example, when we mentioned we were doing ice cream sandwiches as one of our desserts, she recommended we get dry ice vs regular ice because she had a previous experience where the ice cream didn't hold up too well with regular ice, which we would've never known otherwise)). The day of the wedding pretty much went off without any hitches; the catering team showed up on time and set everything up according to schedule, and we were told by many guests that the food and drinks were great! The only ding in the ratings was because I caught some very minor errors in the final contract, but honestly, with so many changes we sent their way, I kind of feel bad taking off a half-point for that.
