Glenn was a dream to work with as a caterer, and his wife Lorraine sure knows how to make some Southern cooking!
My hubby and I are from the South and wanted to do a down-home Southern soul food supper for our wedding reception. This was a tall order for a California caterer, because we are picky about our food! They were so flexible, they let us give them notes after the first taste test and come back for a second one with all of the adjustments we had made. They found pepper vinegar sauce for the collard greens (which, by the way, EVERYONE raved about!), the fried chicken and waffles was a HUGE hit (with siracha honey? Come on!), the pulled pork and slaw was probably some of the most delicious I have ever eaten in my life, and the macaroni and cheese with a crunchy breaded top? Amazing. They served sweet tea and lemonade at the beginning of the reception, and his team did a fantastic job of keeping the buffet replenished and then serving the warmed pies for dessert. It was amazing and we had several people (Southerners included!) come up to tell us how delicious the food was as they made their way for seconds.
The fact that they let us give them notes and then went above and beyond says a lot about this team - they are flexible and want to make you happy. I can't say enough good things about them - thank you so much Glenn & Lorraine! Your food truly made the night memorable for everybody!

We hired Lorraine Lim to cater our wedding on April 12th. They were highly recommended by a good friend. After our first meeting/tasting with them, we hired them immediately. Glenn was so kind, professional and experienced. They designed a menu for us that was just perfect. We had 3 different sliders, corn and poblano chile mac n cheese, sweet potato tots, a delicious salad, chicken and waffles skewers and more. All of which was served family style to 300 people!! They pulled it off without a hitch and everyone LOVED the food. The staff was just amazing, so kind, and so calm. They went above and beyond to insure our day was a dream. I highly recommend this catering company

Lorraine Lim's staff, service, and overall experience are absolutely top-knotch! We just got married in Camarillo and we couldn't have been more thrilled with the caterer's ability to respond to our needs, match our requests, and exceed every expectation. There was not a single unhappy guest, and the same can be said for we newlyweds!

Wouldn't hesitate for a moment to recommend this team to anyone, for any occasion!!!

We loved Lorraine Lim Catering! From the first meeting they listened to what we wanted, offered ideas and suggestions and helped stay within our budget, and feed all our friends and family. The wedding was amazing and we really appreciate all their time and patience in creating the perfect menu and atmosphere from setup to bar service to dinner and clean up. The food was excellent, staff was friendly and went beyond expectations. Thank you so much for everything, the day was better than we imagined!

We used Lorraine Lim Catering for our wedding reception on 5/26/12. Lorraine is the Chef and her husband Glenn is a combination business/event manager. After our ceremony at a separate location, we had our reception at my parents house. We did a cocktail hour that included tray passed appetizers, and a cheese and fruit table, followed by a buffet dinner. Lorraine and her staff were amazing! Not only was the food fabulous, but the set up was so elegant, and the service was spectacular! Glenn is on every detail, he is incredible. He handled all the furniture and dinner ware rentals. One pleasantry that my husband and I were truly grateful for was... when we arrived to the cocktail party in full swing after taking photos, we parked behind the house so we could make an entrance, and two of the catering staff greeted us with delicious appetizers - these were so welcoming, as we were starving and knew we would not have another chance to eat until dinner. All night long we kept hearing how great the food was and how wonderful and elegant everything looked. We can't recommend Lorraine Lim Catering enough!
