I hired Eco Caters, not for a wedding but for a Celebration of Live memorial and was thrilled with everything. I would definitely hire them also for a wedding. While the Memorial was at another location, the reception was at my home and the caterers were there cooking the food all that time. So, when I and my guests arrived home we were greeted with the most delicious aromas wafting from my kitchen. My guests couldn't stop raving about the food which included an amazing blueberry chicken and mouth-watering beef brisket. The grilled veggies were cooked to perfection. And the baby apples were adorable and delicious. I was so impressed with the staff who picked up after my guests so that no dirty plates lingered. Plus, because of the generous amounts, the staff neatly packed all of the leftovers into my storage food containers. The kitchen was cleaned up as well. It was a perfect day! Thank you Eco Caters!

With heaps of experience under his belt, EcoCaters' head chef Nick not only delivers an incredible creative menu that will wow your guests, but his team also makes planning and execution, from glassware to seating and decor, a cinch. They actually make it fun! Who knew? The company's local farm to fork focus was a big tick for us, and we loved the fact that they worked really hard to come up with a package that fit our budget. We were delighted with the EcoCaters team from the start and were confident we'd get a great result, and we did.

I would strongly recommend that you do not use eco caterers for your wedding or other large event because even though their food was DELICIOUS, their service was terrible. Specific examples:
-A ton of time passed after guests were seated before any food was served. After several minutes, my wedding planner went to check on the status of salad and they hadnt even started making it. -waiters didnt know what they were doing, and they had attitude E.g., waiter didnt know to serve one table at a time, captain was aggressively glaring at and signaling to him (Such terrible atmosphere!), he started talking back to her across tables at a distance of 15 feet. seriously.
-bartenders more interested in chatting with each other and were totally rude (telling guests to serve their own water when they asked for it)-i had to flag down staff to clear my plate for the toast so it wasnt in the pictures -waitress didnt appear to have any service experience- telling people to pass their glasses and plopped extra bottles on table while she poured

Also, it is a waste of time & money (they charge a walk through fee) to discuss details with them prior to your event. At least the following details did not occur that had been discussed at length:
-guests were not greeted upon arrival with drinks.
-appetizers and drinks were not provided for the bride and groom right after ceremony
- post-ceremony they did not tray pass wine during the beginning of cocktail hour to cut down on line
-garnishes that were provided for the cocktails (e.g., candied ginger for moscow mules) were not used for cocktails. what a waste
I'd like to think that this was an off day for them, given how good their food and pre-wedding day service was and how good their other reviews are-- but in the words of my wedding planner whose done 100+ weddings "Ive never had to have a conversation like that with a caterer before"

We sampled many caterers but were immediately impressed by the quality of the food at EcoCaters. We sat down at our tasting and found Emily to be delightful, down to earth and helpful. She had many great ideas to help us save on the overall cost of the event and offered ideas about how to best accommodate our request to serve food family style.

At our walk through, Emily offered a number of great ideas and options for the layout. Our friend volunteered to be our wedding planner and she’s mentioned several times how much she appreciated working with Emily on the day-of details. Our friend/wedding planner said that during the ceremony the table containing our cocktail appetizers fell because the ground had been wet and sunk under the weight of the table, causing the dishes and the food to come crashing down. Somehow they managed the whole situation without us knowing and our guests still had wonderful appetizers to enjoy. Emily was graceful and professional when there was a minor snafu with vendor meals (bartender brought several more staff than he said he would). They also handled a delicate situation with one of our guests who needed special arrangements.

The food was delicious, and unique! We added colorful fruit and herb infused water dispensers, which were set up as guests arrived and were then transitioned to the cocktail hour and the reception. The appetizer display was beautifully presented at our rustic outdoor wedding. We absolutely loved the blueberry chipotle chicken and the stuffed peppers for dinner. We had sides of roasted potatoes and vegetables which tasted fresh and flavorful (not rubbery like other caterers we tried). Many of our guests commented about how much they enjoyed the food.

Thank you, EcoCaters, for making our wedding day such a special one! If we ever need a caterer again in the future, EcoCaters will be the first place we’ll call!

We were thrilled to find EcoCaters for our wedding. After speaking to several caterers who were unable to provide any options for an Asian fusion meal, we were blown away by EcoCaters, who put together a customized menu just for us. At the tasting, Chef Nick asked us many questions and took notes on things we liked and did not like about each dish. He made recommendations based on the serving method we chose (buffet style versus sit-down), and when we didn't love the vegetable options, he came up with five new options that would go well with the other dishes we chose.

We have had a great experience working with Lauren, who helped reserve all of our rentals. She asked for multiple quotes that we could compare and that would fit within our budget.

My advice if you are looking for a caterer for any event is call Eco Caters!! We used them a little over a year ago for our wedding and could not have been any happier. I had no idea what to expect from a catering company and they blew me out of the water. We had already had one tasting with another company and left feeling uneasy about the food quality and level of service. We lined up a few more tastings and next on the list was Eco. After a few emails to figure out a tasting menu and the tasting itself, we cancelled all the other appointments. Lauren Sullivan is the main contact who helped us through all the months of planning. She is AMAZING! She is so thorough, attentive, and eases any worry or stress an event can so easily bring on. We found that Lauren/Eco go out of their way not only to prepare a farm-to-table delicious experience for you and your guests, but also help you with rentals and overall planning. They make your whole experience so easy I really can't rave about them enough. At our tasting everything was delivered with explanation, down to where they got the ingredients and variations of different options we could chose from. Our guests still talk about our food a year later.

On the other side of things my friend and his now husband called in a panic, overwhelmed with the lack of planning they had achieved a few months before their wedding. In asking for advice the only thing I told him was call Eco and your stress will be almost non existent. He did and raved just as much about his experience with them. Being a guest at his wedding I was down right impressed, once again with how amazing the food was. The food they serve literally feels like you are at a restaurant ordering for two, not a meal prepared for a large quantity of wedding food.

Definitely call Eco Caters, they truly made my wife and I's day beyond anything we could have ever dreamt up by ourselves!!

Eco Caters was one of my favorite vendors to work with for our 7/25/2015 wedding. We started out working with Lauren as our wedding planner, I believe she was moved to another location, so Jessica stepped in and we thoroughly enjoyed working with Jessica. The day of, Jessica was out there on a hot day sweating her butt off, and very touched by the sun making sure our day went smoothly. And throughout the process, She was extremely responsive, she was quick to answer our questions, and when we found out we were expecting a baby, she was very helpful with helping us find ways where we can reduce the costs in some areas. So, Eco Caters provided catering, and planning for the month of our wedding by the way. They handled the wedding rehearsal, and keeping in contact with our vendors. They helped us with figuring out how much liquor to buy, they managed the bar, they set everything up at our venue, and just made all the separate elements shine through cohesively. We did our tasting with the owners, Emily and her husband, and they were awesome to work with as well. The food was awesome, we got TONS of compliments on the food. I'm personally still craving the beef brisket and the Gouda Mac and cheese we got. Also on our menu was Creole blackened catfish, and green beans with crispy shallots, all of it was delicious. Overall, we would not hesitate to work with Eco Caters again, the team did a fantastic job.

Eco Caters catered our wedding at the SmogShoppe two weeks ago, and we absolutely loved everything about our experience. We chose Eco because of the amazing 5 star reviews on Yelp, and we were not disappointed. The contact with the company has always been incredibly easy and smooth. The food was absolutely exquisite; all of our guests keep raving about how much they loved the food. We were actually concerned about the food not tasting as good as it did during the tasting, since we heard that is a common problem with a lot of catering companies. Of course it is quite different to produce 100 plates instead of 2, so quality is often lost. However, the food at the actual wedding exceeded our expectations. It was just as amazing, if not more delicious than what we remembered. The hors d'oeuvres were incredible; the mojo shrimp, scallop, and gougere with bacon, arugula, and pickled onion were to die for. They disappeared within seconds. Even the cheese plates were subliminal. The plated food was also quite memorable. The whole experience was more than what we hoped for, and we are forever grateful.
The Eco Caters team was always courteous, professional, accommodating, and amazing since the very beginning. We even hired their day-of-coordination service, which also exceeded our expectations. Lauren was just truly amazing. She went above and beyond at all times and did so much work (not just the day of); we couldn't believe it. Our family members kept commenting how much this woman was working nonstop! Lauren was absolutely fabulous, and we can't thank her enough for everything she did to make sure everything went smoothly. Definitely worth every penny!
To sum it up, we are so incredibly glad we chose Eco Caters for our wedding, and we would do it all over again. We can't recommend this company enough! Thank you Eco!!

Had our wedding catered in LA by Eco and couldn't be happier with our choice! The food was perfect and the service was excellent. They worked with our food allergies and created a seasonal menu that was executed to perfection! They even made a special plate for the bride and groom with two kinds of fish, as we ordered salmon for the buffet, but also secretly wanted the bass. That's going over and above in my book.
