"Phenomenal food preparation — and to be able to make hundreds of dishes to the tiniest detail in record time is even more amazing."
Locally grown organic foods are the ingredients that have shaped Elaine’s imaginative menus since the company’s beginning in 1982. Back then, Elaine’s young company contacted growers she knew throughout the wine country to procure neighborhood breads, produce, cheeses, poultry, meats and fish…..this was the natural foundation of her culinary philosophy. Today, she still works with local farms, including The Patch, Ocean Song and Oak Hill Farms, to continue her 29-year tradition of creating extraordinary culinary events, from the bounty of our community, sustaining her innovative style.

Elaine Bell Catering is proud of its long-standing reputation as one of the premier catering companies in the Greater Bay Area and the California Wine Country.

Absolutely perfect. 6 stars if I could. Food was like fine dining, service was incredible.

Debbe was an awesome account manager, and was very helpful in selecting my menu, making sure we had a strong set of dishes that worked well together. I'm a foodie, but planning for a ton of hors d'oeuvres and courses was difficult, and Debbe did a great job helping me through (and dealing with my waffling).

Our tasting was really nice, they have a great location and great service, and really made us feel like we'd be taken care of. We had notes on some of the dishes (add more cheese to this, a little more soy here) and they delivered.

The Food - Amazing. Everyone at our wedding raved about the food. "Wedding food usually sucks, this was like fine dining!" they said. The crown royale braised short rib entree was just out of this world. It was one of my favorite things I've eaten since living in the Bay Area, and I was just so proud (as a food snob) to have had it at my wedding. We had 5 hors d'oeuvres and all were awesome.

The Service - Perfect. During cocktail hour, they sent servers to bring us appetizers to make sure we were well fed (they knew we'd barely have any time). Service was excellent during dinner - our guests said they could tell who were the pros vs. the venue staff. And finally, after the wedding they provided us with a beautiful picnic bag full of snacks, cheese, desserts, and a whole tray of pate that was used in my wife's favorite hors d'oeuvre of the night.

Elaine Bell did a fantastic job.

My husband and I just got married in August, and after 11 months of planning I could not be more impressed with the day of execution. From the awesome staff, to the perfect presentations and timeline to the amazing food, the day could not have turned out better. We worked with Richard throughout the whole planning process, and having been born and raised in the Napa Valley, and knowing exactly what I always wanted for my special day, I have to say he was a complete dream to work with and his dedication showed through. It was truly an incredible day and I have to say a majority of that was due in part to such perfect catering. I will definitely be using Elaine Bell again in the future, as will my guests that lived in the area, the food left that big of an impact. THANK YOU AGAIN EB TEAM!!!

I loved working with Emily at Elaine Bell catering, and I couldn't have been happier with the food at my wedding. Emily was reliable and full of good ideas. She helped my now-husband and me come up with ideas for a scotch-bar and even suggested special ice cubes and a fun display. And the food at the wedding was so good that my wedding guests are still talking about it three weeks later. The baby rack of lamb hors d'oeuvres and the ice cream sandwiches were the biggest hits.

Absolutely delicious food, beautiful presentations, and a fantastic staff and event coordinator (Richard Earl), we couldn't have been happier with Elaine Bell Catering. It was very important to me and my husband that the food at our wedding be excellent, and that is exactly what we got with Elaine Bell. After several tastings with various caterers in the Bay Area, they stood head and shoulders above the rest with regard to both the taste and visual appeal of the food, and also the ease of communicating with them - it made our decision easy, and the fact that their food and ingredients reflect our love of Northern California's cuisine and its focus on local and organic made us even happier. Working with Richard Earl throughout the wedding planning process was a pleasure - he was unfailingly responsive, helpful and pleasant, and very, very knowledgeable. We came into this without the first idea of how to plan such an event, and knowing that a great deal of the success of the afternoon and evening rested in the hands of the Elaine Bell staff gave us peace of mind. During and after the wedding we received many compliments on both the food and the professionalism and kind attentiveness of the staff. The latter I particularly noted, as well, even in the midst of what was an incredible whirl of a night. We highly recommend Elaine Bell Catering!

Where do I begin? Thank god our planner brought us to EB. We thought we'd found the caterers the day prior to our meeting with them, but holy moly, thank goodness we waited to check EB out. We met Richard at the tasting and fell in love with him. The food was to die for (like Michelin star quality, truly) and the set-up was wonderful at the tasting. We were treated like royalty and even enjoyed a bottle of bubbly to celebrate. Throughout the menu planning process, Richard was nothing but helpful and supportive. Any question we had he was quick to answer and made all adjustments however we wanted them. We had stations and we kept getting compliments all night on how amazing the food was. And the staff was great, as well. The only "complaints" we had were the serving staff was too good -- drinks were placed on tables and they were swiped when people hadn't finished drinking them - ha! And a friend was bummed the food had been cleared because she hadn't had the chance to try something. Not bad complaints, really! Thank you, EB, for making our wedding truly an event to remember. I wish I'd gotten to enjoy more of the food but as the bride, it's always hard :)

We had a very positive experience with Elaine Bell catering and especially Amanda Gall, who directed our tasting and was the EB coordinator for our daughter's wedding. Mandy was delightful to work with, responsive and professional and very flexible with some of the changes and additions we made to the contract.
The food and service provided by Elaine Bell at the wedding was just delicious and the food which was served family style was hot and served quickly. I could not recommend them more highly.
