Amazing, creative, memorable and excellence are some words that describe Rob and his team at Pacific Connection Catering. Outstanding, fresh, unique, elegant and 5 stars are some words that describe the food. My husband and I can't thank Rob, Chef Donna and team enough for the superb job they did for our wedding at Trentadue Winery on June 21, 2014. After meeting Rob and tasting the delicious food in our tasting meeting, we knew Pacific Connection was the perfect caterer for our wedding. We thought Rob was absolutely wonderful. Not only was he passionate about his business, but he was very personable, caring and easy-going. He suggested many wonderful hints and ideas that not only was he a wonderful caterer but a great wedding consultant too! We received so many compliments from our families and friends about the food and service. I can't count the number of people who said that this was the best wedding they have ever attended with the beautiful venue and outstanding food. The next morning after our wedding, we had a fabulous brunch with Pacific Connection catering the event. Rave reviews again on the food and service. Thank you Rob, Donna and team for making our wedding weekend memorable and extra special. All the best, Dora and Glenn

Hiring Rob and the pacific connection team was one of best decisions we made while planning our wedding. Rob was extremely easy to work with, professional, and responsive. We felt we got incredible customer service from him at a great value. His staff the day were of the highest quality. They are really great people to work with.

Now for the food... it was exceptional. We received so many compliments that it was the best wedding food people had eaten. This isn't your average wedding fare! It was so good that most of our guests cleaned their plates.

I would recommend Rob and Pacific Connection 100% and would not hesitate to hire them again!

This is the most professional, caring, and impressive catering company out there. Rob and his team blew me away, and in a good way. I am truly grateful that I found him. Not a single concern was overlooked and on the big day I didn't have to worry about anything. His staff knows silent service so well that none of my guests even remembered who refilled their drinks, all they knew was they never had to ask for anything, it was already there. And talk about wonderful food! So many people asked me later who I used for catering because the food was out of this world! When the kids don't even realize they're eating fish but they keep going back for more because it is so tasty, you know you've cooked some darn good food!

Just an all around perfect experience and I would recommend Rob at Pacific Catering over and over again for the rest of my life!

When we first looked into Pacific Connection we were a little shocked by the price, but after looking into other caterers it really wasn't any different. Rob was really great to work, always quickly answering my questions no matter how many that I had. He even gave us great advice on other aspects of the wedding like timeline and setup. Our guests all had only positive things to say about their food. We had a sit down dinner and oh my was their presentation impressive! My husband and I were surprised when they brought out the food and how they served it to our guests, of course we pretended that we knew how cool it was going to be!

Pacific Connection was wonderful. The food + service were just flawless, and our family and friends are STILL talking about how good everything was! Rob with Pacific Catering is very responsive over email and phone and really wants to make sure all details are perfect. My only critique of Rob is that he has strong opinions about the ways certain things should be done. He has a little "wedding planner" in him as well. This is not necessarily bad, as his opinions were usually good ones, based on years of catering experience. I could see this being amazing, especially if you do not have a wedding planner leading up to the event, but I did have a wedding planner that I loved (so didn't need the extra, sometimes conflicting opinions).

Overall, great experience with Pacific Connection. Some of the best wedding food and service I have ever had. I definitely recommend him.

On the whole I was pleased by the quality of the food served at our wedding (everyone raved about it) and the service offered by Rob and his team.

Pacific Connection offers great value and is willing to match "apples to apples" if you receive a lower quote from another caterer for the same package. Even without needing to use the "apples to apples" match, Pacific Connection offered the best value for the price of the caterers we looked at.

Rob is responsive and has years of experience in the business. He will offer helpful advice based on what he's seen but ultimately gives you the final say in what will happen. His team was very accommodating of our desire to have cotton candy served on plates at our wedding, which completely made our day :)

However, one thing that concerned me was the lack of response from Rob in the last few days leading up to the wedding. We had some last minute seating arrangement adjustments, and I never received any confirmation from Rob that he received my emails (which was definitely out of character for him). Ultimately, the changes were implemented but the radio silence was definitely disconcerting at a time when communication becomes even more critical.

Additionally, if you work with Pacific Connection, (as with any vendor) be sure to review your contract thoroughly after every revision to make sure things are as you had agreed upon. Once there was a detail that looked like it had been incorporated from someone else's reception notes and the email asked for a deposit when we had already paid.

Overall, I'm happy with Pacific Connection and would work with them again if I were to do it all over, but I would recommend watching out for the few areas of concern I mentioned above.

Pacific Connection absolutely delivered for our wedding day! We selected "food" as one of the key investments we wanted to make for our wedding guests. How many weddings have you been to where the food is just terrible? Probably too many. With Pacific Connection EVERYTHING on our menu was an A+! We received so many compliments from our guests on the menu. Rob was incredibly helpful with advice and suggestions as we selected the menu items. He also was super accessible when I was seeking suggestions for vendors for other wedding services. Pacific Connection was not just our caterer; they truly helped us to create the entire atmosphere at the wedding with recommendations for everything from table linens, room setup, menu, etc. We couldn't have been more pleased and would HIGHLY recommend them to couples seeking a wedding caterer. Last, but certainly not least, Pacific Connection offered us a tremendous value compared to the other caterers that we considered for the wedding.

Rob and his entire staff went above and beyond anything I could have ever imagined! Not only was the food absolutely delicious, but the service was of 5-star quality. Our friends are still raving about the meal and how they felt like they were at an amazing restaurant and not a wedding.
Rob and Donna worked with us one-on-one to create a delectable meal that included, passed h'orderves of lobster, duck pancake, fried artichoke heart and spring roll; an exquisite salad with locally sourced produce; and entree options of beef wellington, local sea bass and portobello in puff pastry. We also offered cheese during the later part of the evening that was to-die-for. Rob orchestrated the entire service beautifully. We could not have asked for more and are so happy with the entire day!

Rob Gronbach, and his staff at Pacific Connection, are the best caterers I’ve ever come across. They catered our wedding in Sonoma County in August 2012, and they did a perfect job. The food was delicious and elegantly prepared, and the service was wonderful. We planned our wedding long distance from Florida, and Rob was available for the entire 8 month planning process to answer questions and give us tips; not only about the catering, but about many other aspects of planning the wedding as well. He is an expert on weddings, with many years of experience. If you want a professional and friendly catering staff, with beautiful presentation and delicious food, I highly recommend Pacific Connection!
