From start to finish, DJs was great to work with! They were very organized and professional every step of the way and the food is delicious!! We held a reception in my parent's backyard and they were happy to come out and figure out a layout, set everything up, provide food of course, and were there for our every need the day of the event. I would highly recommend them to anyone for any event!

Wonderful food but just as important, the entire set up was beautiful, just what the bride wanted. The fact that DJ's handled everything made it so easy on us. No prep, no dishes, nothing to do but enjoy.

Thank you Doug ... Doug at DJ Catering was responsive and extremely helpful from the very beginning of the process of planning my daughter's wedding. My daughter lives in Dallas, Texas so the catering plan from Dallas to Ventura to Santa Barbara was an intricate one. Doug was so accommodating and understanding of all of our requests and concerns. Doug was quick to answer our many questions by email and was available by phone as well. Doug "got" the vision of the wedding my daughter was attempting to create and helped her immeasurably in that effort. Doug was able (and willing) to draw multiple renderings of the reception site for desired placement of tables and other attendant concerns. The setting of the tables was as we had requested. We had multiple comments about how good the food was, the timeliness of service and the quality of the servers. Many guests complimented us on the excellence of the wait staff. Thank you Doug (so much) for such great food and great service on this special night of our daughter's wedding !

We hired DJ's Catering for our wedding in June and were blown away with their service from the moment we started working with them! We met with Doug soon after we got engaged and were very impressed by his professionalism, attention to detail, and ability to meet all our wedding needs. Our wedding venue was a blank slate so we need to bring in ALL of our rentals. DJ's provided all of our rentals and Doug really knows what you will need. Doug sat down with us several times and walked us step by step through the contract and what the wedding day timeline would be. It was very helpful to meet with him. He is GREAT at what he does!

The food served at our wedding was really really important to us. We wanted something delicious and not your typical wedding food. We had tri tip, BBQ chicken, mac n cheese, and roasted vegetables. Everything was extremely delicious and our guests are still talking about how great the food was. We had a buffet and many guests went back for more. The mac n cheese is to die for!

I honestly can't say enough good things about DJ's Catering. Hiring them for our wedding was the best decision! The staff was so helpful at our wedding and assisted with set-up, take down, etc. They go above and beyond to be sure that everyone is happy. The bartenders from DJ's were also incredible - they kept the line moving so quickly and guests have commented about how there never seemed to be a long line. I highly recommend DJ's catering and would definitely work with them again!

Doug and his staff did a phenomenal job catering our wedding. The food was delicious and the arrangement (dessert table, buffet table, welcoming beverage wine barrel table) was beautiful and creative. The staff was friendly, accommodating and very professional. Doug was available by phone or email whenever we had questions. We felt well taken care of by the whole team from our first phone call, to the tasting, to the setup and finally to our big event. We highly recommend DJ's. We plan to use them for future events.

Hands down of the best decisions I made for my wedding! DJ's was so on top of everything, and everyone there was so nice and accommodating! I talked mostly with Doug, the head guy, and he was outstanding! He always answered all of my questions promptly, he was super helpful, and he was one of the few caterers who got back to me promptly! It was only after I booked them that I looked up reviews on the food, and awesome food! My guests couldn't get over how amazing the food was even being buffet style! The whole company was wonderful and they really helped make my wedding out of this world! On top of everything their prices are so reasonable and amazing!! Love love them! You should check them out, they are amazing! Thanks DJ's!!

DJ's California Catering was simply "THE BEST"!!! I actually hired them site unseen & without a taste test!!! Their pricing was very reasonable for what they offer & the staff was so nice on the phone, compared to all the other caterers I'd been contacting for my daughter's wedding, I just sent them a deposit check to save the date!
My daughter, her husband & I have NOTHING but GREAT things to say about DJ's. Everything from start to finish was great. They were so accommodating with the all the changes that we made over the year prior to the wedding. Their food is SIMPLY DELICIOUS, we received so many compliments from guests about the quality, quantity and taste of the meal. The serving staff was beyond professional yet they were also so friendly & outgoing, like they were having a good time too instead of working! Everything was served on time at the perfect temperature and looked so appealing and delectable!
I appreciated everything they did to make this wedding of my daughter's dreams. I can recommend DJ's Catering wholeheartedly and encourage anyone reading this to be sure to consider them for their special events!
