I wanted to let you know how pleased both Jenny and I were with the food and the pairings for our wedding at Roaring Camp on 7/19. We continue to get compliments about how it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. Your staff was also tremendous. Bringing the wines around and pouring and explaining a bit about the varietal, in addition to making sure each table had plenty of food. We will definitely call you for our next big event. We couldn't be happier. Thank you, thank you!

Our daughter's wedding was everything that we could have hoped for (and more!)

Five Star's crew was impressive in their professionalism, outstanding in their flexibility, and ability to 'think on their feet' and a pure pleasure to have around. Laura took the time to discern what type of event we wanted and our style of entertaining, and was able to help us plan an event that fit our desires. She worked with our other vendors to make a smooth event happen, and never felt ruffled or stressed.

The evening was pure magic, and the staff worked to make sure that everything came off without a hitch. The Farm to Table Dinner was delicious, and it was such a joy to be able to introduce it as the products of our neighbors. I cannot say enough about how good it felt to let someone else take over and know that it would all be OK.

The crew was friendly, kept the event moving without feeling rushed, was attentive and thorough, and left our home (which was the wedding venue) spotless. We only have one daughter (thank goodness!) and Five Star allowed us to throw her the wedding she (and we) have always dreamed of.

Laura and her team are fantastic, the food that they provided for our wedding was delicious. It has been a few weeks since our wedding and I still have people telling me about what they ate and how much they liked it. I met with Laura a few times prior to the event to discuss the menu and also the linens. She was a pleasure to work with. The quality of service and the level of professionalism of her and her staff is amazing.

We had a buffet-style dinner at our wedding to save on costs compared to plated dinners. Their buffet decorations were beautiful and the food was delicious. The staff was courteous and professional. If your wedding is in the Central Coast area of California, I highly recommend Five Star Catering.

Words cannot explain how thrilled I am with the fantastic work of Five Star Catering! From my initial meeting and tasting with Laura, to the day of the wedding, everything exceeded expectations. My entire guest list raved about the food, and service was perfect. I could not asked for a better experience for my special day.

Now that the dust has settled down, I can write to thank you for the wonderful job your cooks and serving staff did for the Taylor wedding! Your company totally lives up to all the reviews we read about you! Over and over again, I heard guests say that this was by far the best wedding food they had ever tasted! Everyone raved about all the food! Please thank your cooks for the wonderful job they did. Additionally, your serving staff was professional, polite and hard working. I especially want you to know that the young lady who worked the Friday night rehearsal dinner, as well as on Saturday, deserves kudos for her hard work and never-ending smile. My compliments to whomever trains your staff! Thank you for making my daughter's wedding memorable!

We used Five Star Catering for our recent wedding, and Laura really did an amazing job. EVERYONE who attended the wedding, complimented on how delicious the food was and how perfect the whole set up was!

In the months (and week of) leading up to the wedding, my fiance and I, were quite indecisive and were always making changes to our contract. Laura handled them with no problem!

The day of the wedding, I couldn't believe my eyes when I walked in! Her team had done such an amazing job with the set up and everything was perfect and in it's place and looked better than I had even pictured! Our taco bar was DELICIOUS and set up very nicely, and they moved all our guests (160 of them) along very quickly through the buffet. The staff was attentive to details (always had our water glasses filled!), kept a clean area, and were professional and friendly. And, the bartenders made some darn good drinks!

The only con I have, is that it can be very difficult to get ahold of Laura at times, and it can take quite a while to hear back from her as well. What I did learn though, is that even though she might not have been responding, she was receiving and making note of all the emails, so in the end there was never any mistakes and everything was handled exactly as planned!

I would use Laura and her staff again in a heart beat and I will certainly be recommending them to everyone we know!

Five Star Catering responded with the following comments:

Hi Ali- Thanks so much for all the positive feedback. I'm so glad that everything turned out exactly how you had envisioned. And thanks for the kick in the butt on the responsiveness issue too. It's fair feedback and definitely something I've been struggling with this year as we continue to grow. As an owner, I want to personally be involved in everything from the initial contact, to the tasting, to the numerous revisions, to the site visits and ultimately the day of execution. After this season, I think I am finally accepting that we have reached the point where I need to let go (just a little) and trust my awesome support staff who also care so much about our clients. I totally get that there is nothing that makes a bride more nervous than not hearing back from their vendors and I feel terrible at the end of each day when I just don't have the time to get back to everyone - no matter how simple their questions are. Best wishes to you both----Laura

I was very pleased with the Five Star Catering team. Laura was very helpful and our wedding menu turned out just the way we wanted. Numerous friends and family commented to me that our wedding food was delicious, and that nothing tastes like "bad wedding food". The servers were polite and professional and they even packed up the left overs for my family who were staying at nearby hotels and bed and breakfast inns. Although with our venue we had to use Five Star Catering, it was definitely a plus and I would recommend them for any event.

We were extremely happy with Five Star Catering. Our venue had some suggested caterers, all of which were extremely expensive, and we found Five Star, which was much more reasonable. That made me automatically a little nervous ( sometimes you pay for what you get), but Laura and Five Star were awesome and we were very happy with them! Laura ( the owner) took a leadership role and had very helpful suggestions during our site walk through. She really played a large part in considering the entire flow of the event, etc. The only reason I gave 4/5 on responsiveness is that sometimes it took Laura a little time to respond to phone calls or voicemails, but in the long run, what needed to be figured out always got figured out, and it was not a problem. We had them do our bar tending too, and Laura worked extensively with us to make sure our bar was exactly how we wanted it. On the actual wedding day, we were very impressed by Five Star. Everything was perfectly set up, prepared, the staff was all very friendly and professional, and the food was delicious!!!! Everyone was complimenting the food. We were given many leftovers to take home at the end of the night. I highly recommend using Five Star!
