Beyond thrilled with the food and service we received from Ortega'z at our wedding reception! The food was amazing - our guests loved everything! We opted for family style and there was enough food for everyone to enjoy each option and then some! The bartenders and waiters were very quick and very pleasant. Would recommend to anyone! Thank you!

Lisa and Marcelo! Thank you again for everything you did in making our day fantastic. From the moment we stepped inside Ortega'z for a tasting to when I hugged Lisa at the end of our wedding night, there was not a piece of the puzzle that was missed. Our food and drinks were of course out of this world phenomenal, which is expected with a caterer that has been on Food Network!

From the sangria bar to the fajita stations everything was fresh and received well deserved compliments.

We also really appreciate that they offered to let us "borrow" a few of their patio tables so that our "sweetheart" table would actually be one since our venue neglected to tell us that they only had one size table.... (whoops) but Lisa and Marcelo to the rescue. Thanks again for going above and beyond. Can't wait to stop by in the summer!

I honestly cannot say enough about Marcello and Lisa and all the staff at Ortega'z. If you can imagine the craziness a hurricane can bring, imagine trying to do a wedding during one! They made my reception simply the best. Not only does their food rock...but I honestly feel like they are family now. They helped us early on before Joaquin decided to show up and they helped us quickly modify our reception plans to create a beautiful, romantic and intimate setting that was simply incredible.

I couldn't if I wanted to write enough good things about Lisa and Marcello at Ortegaz. They catered our wedding this past weekend and everything was just amazing. Not only was the food perfectly cooked, and perfectly served, they went above and beyond in every aspect of the event to ensure we had a good time. They went as far as to come over the night before and help us decorate and arrange tables. They're personal service and above and beyond attention to detail really made our wedding. Throughout the whole wedding guests kept stopping me to tell me how amazing the food was. If you're having a wedding in the Outer Banks area, you simply cannot do better than having Ortegaz cater your event.

AMAZING!! Use Ortega'z if you want creative, delicious and unique food for your wedding. I was blown away by how incredible everything was and I'm still getting emails and messages from our guests raving about the food. We chose "classy comfort food" with a pig roast, Mac n cheese bar, ravioli, green beans, rosemary potatoes and jalapeño cornbread. The cocktail hour items were awesome too. Lisa and Marcelo truly have a passion for food and helped us create a wonderful menu that was so far from a boring wedding spread. I can't say enough about how awesome it was. Their staff went out of their way to help us setup a few things, give us recommendations and help clean up. Their prices are also very good. I looked at a few other places and no one came close...it was an incredible value. The only negative thing I have to mention is the communication was slow during the planning process but the end result was so incredible it doesn't matter. Thank you Ortega'z!!!

Ortega'z definitely surprised us when we went to do a tasting. They are known for having a variety of Tex Mex and we wanted something different, which they knocked out of the park. We did a Carolina BBQ dinner with loaded mashed potatoes and green beans and shrimp and grits. The appetizers were crab cakes, bruschetta, and these Brie wontons that had smoked bacon and a mango sauce. The wontons are TO DIE FOR. I asked for a box of wontons to go! They were also flexible with certain guests who had special needs which was nice. They made it easy to plan and coordinate. Lisa and Marcel were awesome to work with, however i had thought that Lisa mentioned that she would be at my wedding to help with the catering, but she had someone else from her staff in charge which kind of became frustrating because I had worked so hard with Lisa to plan our event and she knew everything so I spent time explaining things to the new person before the wedding. For example we had planned to have the cupcakes passed after the cake cutting, and they weren't. Guests were supposed to grab them themselves which I didn't want so I had to run in and tell the catering crew to pass them as planned. They also threw our anniversary cake in an old liquor bottle box, not in a food box so when it was being transported it shifted around and got messed up and my mother in law had to repackage it which is disappointing. They were nice about it and did everything I had asked, but it was a little frustrating to work with someone so close who was supposed to be at an event only to have them at another wedding. I'd recommend getting clarification as to who will exactly be at the event so you can plan accordingly.

Aside from that, the food was wonderful and my guests raved about it. Lisa communicated with us promptly and met with us several times to chat about the wedding which was nice. I do recommend them, but I also recommend getting that clarification about who will be in charge at the event.

Lisa and Marcelo were awesome to work with! We were guests at a wedding they catered one year before our wedding, and couldn't wait to hire them for ours. They were laid back and flexible, yet professional and responsive. The food was amazing, and our guests are still talking about the dinner. Highly recommend Ortegaz!

Ortega'z food was amazing!! The only complaint that we had was that the food was so good and everyone loved it so much we had very little to take home. We had a citrus themed wedding and Lisa and Marcelo planned a meal around our theme. The attention to detail in the food was beyond compare. We can't wait to go back for a visit and eat at their restaurant!!

We decided to not do a wedding cake and Ortega'z made mini desserts for us instead. It was so special and unique. Not everyone likes cake and you have to try to pick a flavor everyone will like, not us. We had five different types of desserts so there was something for everyone.

Ortegaz was a compete pleasure to work with for our wedding! Their enthusiasm, creativity, and attention to detail made our event so much more unique and special. They were flexible with our crazy menu schemes, and our guests had nothing but rave reviews for the food at our event. Their pricing was very reasonable for the quality of ingredients and preparation, which can be hard to find in the Outer Banks. Of all the vendors we worked with for our wedding, Ortegaz was the best, and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. This husband and wife duo won't disappoint!!

Lisa and Marcelo Ortega are truly one of a kind! Their food is delicious, colorful, beautifully presented (but not pretentious), and you can tell that they love what they do. Their creative ideas and unique takes on traditional foods made them an easy choice for our wedding and their passion and excitement was infectious! The catering and bartending staff were professional and friendly. They made our day so special, and even accommodated us with a lunch platter at the last minute. They go above and beyond what any other caterer in the area could manage, all while running a wonderful and successful restaurant in the heart of Manteo. Ortega'z and the entire team are second to none!
