We hired Mountain Magic Catering for both catering and day of coordinating for our Sept Tahoe wedding.
The food was phenomenal! Even our picky SF "foodie" friends were deeply impressed. The portion sizes were generous and everything was grilled to restaurant-quality perfection. The steak was excellent and the sauces were inventive. This did not feel just like "wedding food". Everything was fresh and very farm-to-table.
Next, the prices are also very reasonable.
Also, MMC was the only caterer we met with that seemed to offer a thoughtful vegetarian entree (they did a stuffed pepper with quinoa and not just more pasta, etc).
Finally, Martha's day of services were essential to the success of our event. Her calm demeanor and attention to detail pulled everything together seamlessly (no small task - especially a last minute shift to have an indoor ceremony due to rain). The below negative review about set-up is very counter to what we experienced as we delivered boxes of decor, etc the day of and everything was set-up exquisitely. (maybe hiring the day of services make the difference here???) Her efforts really helped capture the vision for our wedding and allowed us to not think about details and enjoy our event. Everything felt polished, elegant, and romantic.
Thank you Martha and Peter!

Martha and Peter at Mountain Magic catered my wedding in August and I could not have been happier with them and the food! I've been to a LOT of weddings and their food was above and beyond my favorite. Everything was organic/ healthy/ and as local as possible and it was very true to Tahoe. They set up a carving station- which I highly suggest- and the buffet and passed appetizer presentation was fantastic. I was slightly worried because we didn't do a tasting before-hand, but when we met with Martha to go over the menu we could smell all the amazing food coming from the kitchen. They had an extensive seasonal menu to choose from and they seemed very flexible to discuss any changes had we needed them. I had heard about MM not slicing cake, but with clear communication beforehand I had no issues. The one hitch was our bartenders- which are provided by MM. We were very disappointed with their service (slow pouring/ not knowing basic mixed drinks/ claiming there was none of x alcohol or mix left although it was found later, and at one point they left with no one to take over. Overall I think Peter and Martha and their food is beyond worth it.

Saturday, February 22nd, on the mountain above beautiful Zephyr Cove in amazing Lake Tahoe, I had the honor of being a guest at Frank and Angie's wedding, and what a wonderful wedding it was! Intimate and oh so lovely. One of the many delights that afternoon was the amazing catering experience provided by Peter, Martha and crew. What a great group of people, all smiles and so very professional. From the most amazing passed hors d' oeuvres to an incredible full course meal. The aroma coming from the kitchen was to die for. Every part of the food experience was a taste sensation, truly superior. Great job Mountain Magic Catering & thank you!!

Mountain Magic catered the cocktail hour for our wedding and they were fantastic! Peter was very professional and great to work with. You can tell he is really passionate about what he does. They offer a huge variety of appetizers and the food was delicious. He was also very helpful in providing us with guidelines for how much alcohol we would need for the cocktail hour and was responsive and organized during our planning process. I got several quotes for our cocktail reception and Mountain Magic was by far the most reasonable.

We hired Mountain Magic Catering for our July wedding in Tahoe. The food was delicious and we got a lot of compliments from our guests. However, the great tasting food could not make up for the bad attitudes, disrespect, and lack of service we experienced.

We met with Martha in May to finalize details about the wedding. She assured me that they would "set the tables from the linen up." She told me that I could drop off any center pieces to the caterer as well as anything else we wished to be set up on the table and that MMC would gladly set them out for us. In one of my unanswered emails, I asked Peter where I should drop off all of the center pieces and favors, which were to be set at each place setting. The day of the wedding, my mom and my maid of honor dropped off the boxes to Peter. He rudely exclaimed that he had no idea what we were doing. He said that MMC never sets up tables, that they never would have agreed to doing so, and that he could not help us. He was incredibly offensive and disrespectful to both my mom and my maid of honor, who then had to run around for almost an hour setting up the tables.

In our contract, MMC agreed to do a champagne toast as well as include cake cutting services. Neither were provided.

MMC is incredible. It was really important for us to find a farm to table/organic caterer.

When we chose our menu, MMC made suggestions based on seasonality and they were all perfect. Our guests RAVED about the food (we used them for our welcome picnic and the wedding) and we loved it too.

They were professional, helpful and told me I looked beautiful every time I saw them. They come HIGHLY recommended.

Peter and his staff make absolutely DELICIOUS food. We booked Mountain Magic for our wedding at the Ehrman Mansion in the Sugar Pine Point State Park, and we had many, many guests tell us that it was the best food that they have ever had at a wedding. The santa maria tri tip steak + chimichurri sauce was especially flavorful, as was the mixed greens salad with walnut, apple, dried cherries, gorgonzola, and balsamic (it sounds so simple, but believe me it was fantastic).

Beyond the food itself (which was amazing), the price was very reasonable, especially given the "Tahoe premium" that most vendors apply. All in all, I would absolutely recommend Mountain Magic for anyone's next event in the Tahoe area.

Mountain Magic was great. We had a specific idea in mind for our wedding - a gourmet burger bar - and they came up with a fabulous menu that was perfect. The weather created a last minute change of setup, which they accommodated perfectly. My wedding guests even raved that the passed appetizers were the best they'd had at a wedding - I'm very sad I did not get to try them.

The food and service were both excellent. Peter catered both our wedding as well as our wedding party breakfast the next morning. Both were a buffet. He did a beautiful presentation both days. Only negatives were that we ran out of french toast at the breakfast and he was only willing /able to make a few more, and I don't think we got all our left-overs. Regardless, everything was delicous and all our guests were raving. I would definitely work with him again.
