The caterer was 2.5 hours late to our wedding and did not follow the details of our contract. Our families & wedding party had to rush to set up the entire reception during the cocktail hour when it should have been ready prior to the ceremony beginning. The reception duration was cut in half due to this huge error. The catering manager passed our family and our complaints to the owner who was unaware of many of the details and not present the day of the wedding. The owner has refused to admit their mistake and the disaster they caused.

The stress we have experienced after the wedding has been far worse than the stress & grief we felt on the day of our wedding. There is no excuse for their unprofessionalism.

Love At First Bite Catering responded with the following comments:

We are very distressed by this review; no one should have any stress added on their special day. But this review is not factual and is under dispute. I welcome anyone to ask us or please review with the BBB.
Our contract was to supply rentals & only the hors d’oeuvres with a serving staff of two for the cocktail hour. We quoted client a full service proposal but the client chose to do their own thing. They asked our staff of two to remain afterwards and “assist” them with the buffet china service for 135, this menu service was NOT a Love at First Bite service.

Our crew did arrive on time but inadvertently forgot a few of the linens ordered. (4 cocktail table linens and linen napkins). When we discovered this, I, the business owner, did bring them to the site personally. These items, only, did arrive late but were set up before event started. Everything else was on site on time.

Client was to set up their own reception area but when I arrived with the late linens, it had not even been started. We were not contracted to set up reception table settings, but WE DID. I think the lack of communication came from the client and their coordinator. We were informed the week of the wedding that they had a wedding coordinator. We tried to contact her but did not hear back from her until the afternoon the day before the wedding.

Points from this review: Crew arrived on time. But yes, 4 of the cocktail table linens and the linen napkins were late, but arrived before event time.

The family/friends were supposed to set up reception. I do not understand why they did not set up. Only the linen napkins were late. Everything else was onsite…

Our catering manager did inform us, the owners, and I WAS present the day of the wedding. I helped set all table settings! (This once again was not in our contract to do). We have acknowledged our mistake with the linens that were late (even though they arrived before event and we set up tables). We have repeatedly tried to work with client. Clients Mother even sent angry email over the menu meal. Once again we did not supply this! We only supplied appetizer for the Cocktail hour…

LAFB has been in business for 30 years! We are distressed by this too.

Love at First Bite - Huntington Beach, was the best caterer I've ever dealt with!

First and most important, the food is amazing! We had so many compliments from our guests.

We had a buffet BBQ style dinner at our wedding. I HIGHLY recommend a buffet in general. They did an amazing presentation and it tasted perfect, just like our trial tasting....

The apps were plenty to go around, we didn't run out (which is often a complaint at weddings right?) The spread again, was really pretty.

They were super professional, the waitstaff, bartenders and buspeople were all amazing, friendly & accomodating.

A special compliment to Shelly Fronk (who assisted me as well as a "pre-wedding & day of" coordinator through Love at First Bite). If you can, work with her b/c she's fabulous.
