Kitty did a menu specific for our event, which was what we were looking for. A lunchtime wedding, we wanted a variety of sandwiches and salads, and we decided to nix cake and just do pudding and cupcakes. She spent an hour on the phone with me going through the specifics of each sandwich - bread, toppings, condiments, meats, etc. She had her own suggestions which was helpful for someone who didn't know how much of what I was wanting was doable or wedding appropriate, yet completely customized things for us. We are still getting compliments on the food, despite them being sandwiches!

She was great at communicating via email with me and answered any questions I had, redid the quotes when we adjusted things, etc. We got TONS of food for the price and I proved my dad wrong--you CAN get catering for cheaper than he was thinking! We had so much leftover food which was in itself a pain and a blessing - it fed the family my parents had over post-wedding and gave them free lunches and dinners for a solid week, haha. We definitely got our money's worth, even though I think we could have gotten by just fine without quite so much food.

The reason I only gave 3.5 stars for professionalism was because she kept coming up to me during the reception. Nothing had gone wrong, I had not requested updates, but felt that it disrupted my time with the guests and I did not want to have to think about any of the food. She prepared a cooler for my husband and I to take on our honeymoon which was great, but I didn't think there was any good reason she needed to talk with me 3 times during the reception.

Otherwise, great to work with and great food, especially for those looking for a customized menu.

Oh MY! Where do I begin??? Seriously, Kitty rocked my wedding, my guests, my world...and me...it was sooo good, the honeymoon "night" had a lot of competition! :)

Kitty catered our wedding at the Casino of San Clemente last weekend. I knew I loved her immediately and felt comfortable, but she impressed everyone. It wasn't just food on a buffet table, it was heart, soul, and amazing food! People kept telling me all night how awesome the food was. People were going in for seconds. She is amazing!

From our first phone conversation to meeting in person to the event, it was all smooth. She constantly assured me it was going to be great and she kept her word. It was great. Just today I was talking to a friend about the wedding and they were praising cocktail hour. For an incredible price we had cocktail hour with h'ordeurves, a chocolate fountain, and gorgeous fruit tree. It was stacked and really beautiful. My guests were so impressed with the details and I can't take credit for it, it was ALL Kitty.

I really feel like she is part of the family. She worked so hard and took care of us. We missed the chocolate fountain so she made us plates of delicious chocolate covered treats to eat before dinner. She kept an eye on us to make sure it was all going great. If you are thinking about using Kitty for your event, you MUST! She can cook anything! She is professional, kind, generous, and such a fun person.

Thank you Kitty! You truly are a doll and I am so blessed to have met you! :)

First off let me say that Kitty is a very nice person..she is very enthusiastic and flexible to what you need. We had a themed wedding so our food needed to match that theme. Her price was great per person for a buffet style meal...however the day of there were some kinks....they ran out of the appetizers for the cocktail hour which I only could afford two types and they didn't have plates for the salad which was part of the buffet so they had to put bowls of salad on each table where the guest would have to use their dinner plate...and then desert...because we had a wedding cake I wanted to provide an alternate desert...peach cobbler which is my favorite. I didn't get any of it but i was told that it was horrible...it was hard and there wasn't enough fruit to compensate the hard crust. But the worse part was the final payment. Because my bank account was hacked online my funds were stolen and I explained it to Kitty and asked if I could pay by check...she didn't want to take it but did and then charged me tax on top of the check which luckily I had $40 in cash on my that I gave her for the tax. At the end of the night I guess she went to cash the check and it bounced....this was because of my account being hacked i asked her if I could pay the remaining balance tomorrow as I didn't have any more cash on me(which was less then half of what I owed her cause I paid majority of the cost in cash a month prior) she said no and that I needed to find the money somewhere cause she had to pay her employees. So here I am on my wedding day asking my family members for cash so I can pay her! I was so embarassed....I couldn't believe that was so kind and understanding througout the planning process and when i was in trouble beyond my control she couldn't take my word that I would get her the couple hundred owed the next day... I will never refer her services or the wedding planner who connected me with her to anyone.

Kitty’s Catering provided our catering for our reception. Normally before I go to a wedding I try to find the closest In-N-Out so that after I eat the typical wedding food at the reception (rubber chicken) I know where to go. Not so with Kitty’s Catering, it was great!

We started off with stuffed mushrooms which our guests consumed at an alarming rate. We also had chipotle/jalapeno sliders which were so amazing. Did I mention the appetizers were passed at no additional cost? We also had a great assortment of veggies and fruits and, of course, the amazing artichoke dip and crostini.

On to the meal, we wanted to have the salad on the table and let people serve themselves. I hate being hungry and sitting at the last table to go to the buffet. This way people could eat and the salad and wouldn’t take up room on the dinner plate/mix in with other foods. Since our reception site was literally on the coast, we thought that a menu consisting of surf-and-turf would be appropriate. We had Tri Tip (beautiful piece of steak for the non west coasters) which was carved by one of Kitty’s servers (no additional charge for the cutting station) and shrimp in a wine sauce. I am picky about shrimp and only took two just in case….what a mistake they were delicious. I am actually getting hungry writing this. We also had steamed veggies which were cooked perfectly and a rice dish.

Everyone raved about the food, more people had seconds than I have ever seen, and hopefully no one needed to go to the nearest In-N-Out afterwards. We went for tastings at other catering services and were left with a bad taste in our mouths…literally. Not only was Kitty’s food better it was also cheaper. She was also able to adapt her menu to our wishes and was receptive to our changes. The catering tables were decorated simply, beautifully and tastefully, exactly what we wanted. Kitty and her staff were professional and friendly, I can’t wait to have an event so that we can use her again.

Thank you so much Kitty, your food was fabulous.

Kitty and her staff were amazing! I couldn't say enough about her and her amazing food! Her prices were fantastic and the food was even better! Our guests couldn't say enough about the food and that was a primary comment from most people throughout the night tonight. My sister in law wants to plan a party just so she can hire Kitty to cater for it!! From start to finish everything was fun, personal, and professional. She was easy to reach and always quick to respond with an answer.

Thanks Kitty! You rocked my wedding for me!!! Best to all of you and I look very much forward to working with you again one day!!

We used Kitty's Catering for our wedding and we were on a budget, so it was a good fit! She was able to offer different options for us, according to our budget. We had a Caribbean style menu with chicken, rice, salad, etc. But the best thing is she makes fruit trees out of pineapples. Our guests loved it, and it was a great pop of color. The price was great, and it kept us and our guests fed :)
