I booked my ceremony and reception through the Croatian Center, they provide their own catering, known as Dimitri's Catering. It is one and the same with the Croatian Center, but I wanted to make a separate review for their cuisine.

I am a foodie. I will venture out and explore new tastes, but there are few things that are better than good ol' comfort food, which is what we got at Dimitri's. Most of the weddings I've been to serve canned veggies, old rolls, and an oxidizing salad. Dimitri's serves none of those things. The salad, bread and coffee service was on par. The servers already know what to look for and readily comply with any additional requests. We had the Chicken Vesuvio, red potatoes and parsley, and California medley vegetables. The chicken was definitely the best Chicken Vesuvio I've ever had. Yes, it was a simple roasted chicken, but it was juicy and very well seasoned. I wish the chicken I made at home came out that good! The potatoes were not over-done and also perfectly seasoned. I am not a fan of any California medley, but the one we were served, the veggies were crisp and delicious. We did not serve alcohol at our wedding, so I can not offer a review on that, but everything else, was great. Just as I said in my venue review, I recommend them 100%!

Working with Dimitri's Catering at their hall The Croatian Center was a dream! They were the least stressful vendor I had. The food was excellent, the value superb, and the venue is gorgeous! They set up the centerpieces for us, and were very accomodating in every aspect from the very beginning. We had our ceremony outside in their gazebo, which turned out beautifully. Then we moved everything inside for our reception, and it was perfect. They charge for 200 people, which includes a family-style meal and bar. We only had 160 people, so they let us use the difference to pay for use of the gazebo, upgrading the bar, and a couple of trays of hors d'oeuvres while we were finishing up pictures and the guests were waiting for the meal. Their price is $31.50 (at the time of this review) per plate, but this includes a basic bar, three meats, a potato of some sort, a vegetable, a salad, and dessert. I just can't say enough good things about our experiences with them. I would highly recommend them to anyone in the area!
