We just had our tasting with Karen and the team. First of all... Karen = AMAZING. We had previously met with a caterer from another company and we left feeling unintelligent and down. Then we met with Karen. It was night and day. From the first minute she was enthusiastic, cheery, and telling us all of our ideas were possible and that she could do it well. She then, in the right way, gave us the pro's and con's to what we originally thought we wanted and how it could play out. Basically- you tell her what you want and she'll figure it out. Even though we didn't go with every idea we pitched her- it was nice to know that instead of say, "Well- we can't really do that," she would tell us how she could do it and what some other options were as well. We had our tasting- and the food is amazing! So far so good with everything! If you want a great caterer that is going to make you feel special, be really responsive, and make what you want happen... then Karen and Miraglia is the right caterer for you. We'll update after the wedding as well.

I found out about Miraglia through our venue, which had a list of preferred vendors for us to work with for our wedding. We selected them right away after we met Karen, who was fabulous! I worked with Karen throughout the entire planning process and she was always on top of it. She knows her stuff! It never took more than a day for her to get back to us and explained everything to us very thoroughly so knew what to expect. The day of our wedding the staff were excellent and professional; they served the bridal party hors d'oeuvres RIGHT after the ceremony ended so we could get through the photo session, and even made sure the bridal party all got a drink from the bar. After the festivities were over, they even made us a care package with sandwiches and some of our wedding cake. I never had any worries about the food the day of because I knew I was in good hands with Karen's team. Everyone loved the food so much that many have asked who we used so they could plan their next event! Don't look anywhere else - MIraglia is your caterer!

Miraglia Catering offers a great variety of foods, all of which are delicious and affordable. They were able to work within our budget and provide a very memorable wedding dinner for us and our guests. They are extremely responsive and Karen is very fun and friendly. We really enjoyed working with her and she always got back to us within 1-2 days during the week, which we really appreciated. All of our guests complimented how great the food was, and the staff took great care of us - they even brought me (the bride) food to the bridal suite before the ceremony to ensure I had eaten, even though they weren't contracted to be ready to serve until the end of the ceremony! The staff were so friendly and able to accommodate our last-minute needs onsite as well. I would highly recommend Miraglia!

Miraglia did a fantastic job catering at our wedding at the Chabot Space Center! They are a preferred vendor and know the venue very well, so it was very straightforward in terms of setup and how we wanted things organized. They were pretty flexible to how we wanted things, but also made us aware if any kind of setup was not a good idea or just not feasible for the location. We ended up going with their recommendations most of the time because they were so familiar with the location. The food was phenomenal and everyone loved the s'mores station that they had. The appetizers were delicious and we also special requested an asian style pork which was a big hit and my favorite bite to eat that day! We also hired a day of assistant and they got us Bonnie, who did a very good job at setting things up and making sure we had food and drink at all times. We didn't realize how crazy things would get and how much you forget to eat, so we were very happy to have someone checking on us. Karen was our go to from the start and was always very responsive via email (we had a LOT of questions). She even came the day of to make sure things were going smoothly and to say hi, so that was very nice! They are priced on the higher side of what we initially budgeted, but you can pick and choose what you want, and in the end, it was all worth it! It was a very memorable night and Karen made it happen! I think as a couple, you also have to be very on top of it, organized and detail oriented if you are doing DIY and want things a certain way. We took photographs of the venue and made notes of what we wanted where. Then, with all of our decor, we took photographs of how we wanted each setup to look. That definitely helped make things run more smoothly because we had a relatively short setup time. Mirgalia was professional from start to finish and very well organized. We are very pleased to have them be part of our special day!

Wonderful caterer. Very professional. They can help you plan out many parts of your wedding. Karen, who was out primary point of contact was amazing. She gave us plenty of material to help us plan our wedding, much of which wasn't catering specific. She just wanted to help us out.

We did have an odd request we placed on them, we wanted a whole filipino pork lechon. They were able to find someone who could do it and delivered a fantastic whole pig, at a great price no less.

At the wedding, they catering was perfect. The bar tender was attentive, the food was hot and delicious, and cook was friendly and helpful.

Miraglia was fantastic! From the very first phone call, Karen was professional, attentive, thorough and so caring! My husband and I are both vegan and she didn't even bat an eye! She crafted a wonderful menu, to please all palates! All of our guests talked about how amazing the food was--everyone was craving that tomato tart for weeks afterwards! The staff the day-of were amazing and so nice. Easy to work worth, great value, great food and great staff--what more could I ask for?!?! Thank you, Miraglia!

Miraglia's food was delicious, and Karen was very helpful at the beginning of our wedding planning process, answering all of my questions and even recommending our fantastic wedding coordinator, Caitlin Arnold.

As our wedding date got closer, things were less ideal. Karen reluctantly let us do a tasting even though we were supposed to have done it earlier (though we were never approached about scheduling this and the deadline appeared as a small detail in our contract). Who would choose wedding food without a tasting? She was also a bit inflexible in dealing with our coordinator about our set-up diagrams.

Despite the great food, we ended up with a sour taste in our mouth when we got our final invoice and discovered that she had snuck in charges for vendor appetizers, bar, and snacks when our coordinator had expressly quoted numbers not including vendors. Our wedding coordinator made sure that vendors did not snag apps or get drinks from the bar during our wedding. Karen later told us that our coordinator's numbers were "way off" even though her reply to our coordinator's quote was that everything looked great.

This extra cost didn't amount to a lot, but Karen was resistant to removing it, saying she'd have to talk to the owners. We let it go, but it's a shame to think that the reputation of their business is worth so little that they will resort to nickel and diming their customers. While our wedding went off without a hitch, we can't say we're as pleased with our interactions with Miraglia.

It has been two months since my wedding and I'm sorry to say that I'm FINALLY getting around to reviewing Miraglia Catering. It would have been easy enough to forget reviewing them, but honestly I couldn't EVER forget how amazing they were.

Although they command a premium, it's well worth it. Every detail of the reception was clearly communicated, planned, and executed. If you want a company that knows what they're doing, brings professional staff, and provides food that's AMAZING, then Miraglia is your choice.

My wife and I had 200 guests in a backyard wedding reception. Miraglia provided everything from the tables & chairs, linens & table settings, umbrellas & heaters, and of course the wonderful food & attentive staff.

From Karen who is like Superman: By day she's a mild-mannerd catering saleslady but by night she's a wedding-coordinating-superhero, to Mike who is one of the most amazing people I've ever had the pleasure to meet, to Jim who can run circles around any of those prime-time cooks you see on TV...it makes me feel very lucky to have found them.

Thank you Miraglia!

Unfortunately for us the relationship with this caterer started off great but then there was a change in the event planning person because he resigned. The quality of service quickly declined. We also found that their cost to provide alcoholic beverages were really high and overall prices were high. We ended up hiring outside waiters because it was cheaper to go that route but in the end extra work for us.

After receiving 15 catering estimates, yes, 15… I had lost all hope. I finally stumbled across Miraglia and was instantly happy. Karen understood our menu concept and was even pretty excited about it. I come from a family of chefs and knew that the food had to be top notch. Our tasting was AMAZING. My dad was taking pictures of the food so he could show his friends! We had some non-traditional ideas for the wedding but Miraglia was onboard every step of the way. We received so many compliments on the food and a few of our friends asked for the caterers contact information. Miraglia has amazing customer service and excellent food. Price includes food, service, and all rentals.
