Do you want your guests to tell you this is the best wedding food they ever had? Yes. You do. Wedding guests care about the booze and the food. Don't fall short on either!

We initially selected Sage by process of elimination. Our venue, Cornerstone Sonoma, only permitted 3 vendors. Park Avenue, Ramekins and Sage. We first went to the tasting at Park becauase it was free. The taste was lacking and so was the customer service. The guy even argued with me. Ramekins had much more spectaular customer service, but we were not overly impressed with the cuisine. Then, we put our money out and went with Sage, and goodness are we glad we did.

The customer service is top notch. Oceanna is truly spectacular and has a thorough understanding of your needs to make you feel at ease. She really understands the venue Cornerstone and what quantities to make your guests' experience the best.

Also her staff, just great. Full of smiles, responsiveness, and they cleanup everything on the spot, so don't leave your drink unattended too long. Sage was the perfect catering company for me and my guests couldn't have been more pleased.

Simply outstanding. We received compliment after compliment from our guests as they proclaimed that ours was by far the most delicious wedding meal they had ever experienced. Alaskan halibut, braised short rib, and butternut squash were the stars of the show as we asked for refills on our meticulously delivered family-style dishes. The guests LOVED this set up as they could have more of their favorites and perhaps skip others.

Meredith and her team were prompt, warm, professional, graceful, and as I marched into a day that would give most brides nerves about all of the carefully planned details coming together, due to they way Meredith and Sage Catering presented themselves all along the way, I had not a doubt in my mind about my caterer.

The catering team were always at the ready, anticipating every need and always catching my eye for clues as to what I might need or want. They were staffed with a small army of professionals, they executed truly a well choreographed evening. I deeply appreciate your contribution to our wedding, with your help and expertise we managed to pull off the event of the year!

Meredith and Sage were wonderful to work with as caterers for our wedding. They were referred to us by our wedding venue as a preferred vendor, which made planning much smoother. My now husband's main priority was the food and the booze, so he worked closely with Meredith to ensure the menu was to our expectations. My husband had several phone calls with Meredith to brainstorm and confirm ideas and services. Our tasting was excellent and it was clear that Meredith had taken my husband's notes to heart in crafting the menu details. My husband had a number of tasting notes and revision requests which were expertly accommodated. Both the Chef and the Owner came into our tasting meeting to say hello and discuss the menu and services. We felt acknowledged and respected and that they truly wanted to create the wedding menu of our dreams while maintaining our budget. Day of service was outstanding. Our guests continue to compliment us that it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding and how courteous and attentive the staff were during the event. We had passed appetizers and plated meals and no one felt left out or that they had to wait too long. Everyone was happy, especially the bride and groom! I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone needing a caterer!

Sage catered our wedding at Cornerstone. Mari was our main point of contact leading up to it, and she was super helpful and responsive. We chose Sage in the beginning primarily because their food was so great at the tasting (we did multiple tastings). They also got our vision and put together a fantastic menu - we didn't want the standard salad and beef/chicken like at every wedding - so we had three medium-sized courses, using fresh, local ingredients. We are incredibly picky and we barely changed the menu from what Sage suggested up front. On the day of the wedding, the service was outstanding, as was the food. Many guests commented on how good it was (and took pictures of it). The staff put out a plate of appetizers, waters and champagne for us and our witnesses to have right after the ceremony, and often checked with us to make sure we had everything we needed throughout the night. When our parents wanted to move their toasts earlier during dinner, the kitchen adjusted on the spot. Sage also coordinated the rentals, and was flexible in changing and confirming our order several times in the months leading up to the wedding. We would absolutely use them again and recommend them.

Sage catering is a partner with Viansa Winery, so we were unsure of how it would work out. But we are happy to say they were AMAZING!! Our guests are still talking about how delicious the appetizers were and we did a duet plate with 2 entrees (seabass and chicken) and were cooked perfectly. Even for a group of almost 200, each dish was cooked to perfection and I didn't hear one complaint. They also set up a private tasting through Viansa ahead of time, where we got to invite 4 people, which was very nice for us so we could taste the food along with our parents. It was a nice way to sample their options and have some fun with it. I would definitely use them again for another catering event!

We had the best food at our wedding!!! Sage far exceeded our expectations!! Everyone we talked to after the wedding said that our dinner was by far the best meal they have ever had at a wedding... And several of them even said they would order it at a restaurant. And the appetizers were great too! I would highly recommend Sage Catering to anyone.

We chose Sage Catering for our August wedding at Vine Hill House and were SO happy with how it turned out! If you are looking for outstanding service & extremely high quality food, then you must go with Sage for your event.

My husbands one request throughout the entire wedding planning process was that we have amazing food at our wedding. He loves to cook and we both love to enjoy great food so we definitely wanted something above the average wedding meal. Sage delivered in all aspects and we could not have been happier.

We worked with Scot throughout the planning process and Brooke as our day of captain. They were both extremely responsive & helpful throughout, even when I decided to change up the appetizers at the last minute! Luckily we got to enjoy our appetizers and a few bites of dinner, which consisted of my favorite heirloom tomato & burrata cheese combo and dinner of filet (or seabass or ricotta ravioli - it was ALL SO GOOD). We also opted to have them provide apple crisps for dessert, which we unfortunately did not get to try. They also took care of all our rentals, linens, bar setup, service, & provided valuable insight into details I didn't even think about.

Far and away, the food was outstanding. We still have friends commenting on how good the food was at the wedding & asking who our caterers were. That was what we wanted and they most definitely delivered.

My only tiny complaint - we really wanted meals boxed up for us because we knew we wouldn't get a chance to eat and unfortunately that didn't happen. We are just a little bummed because we know how amazing the food was :)

Mari was my main contact with Sage Catering for my April wedding and I couldn't have been more pleased.

My husband had one big request for the wedding: really good food. Needless to say, we carefully selected our caterer and were so happy we selected Sage.

Crabcakes? Mindblowing. Ahi tuna crisps? Delicious. Fresh Ricotta Ravioli? Even the meateaters wanted some. And the Filet went without saying as being the highlight of the night.

We have received so many compliments on the food (both apps and entrees) and they were even nice enough to provide a specialty lavender syrup for our signature cocktail.

Thank you Mari and Sage for an absolutely amazing wedding reception and dinner! Your whole company made wedding planning a delight.

Sage was a wonderful company to work with. Spring was great. Very personable. And the food was amazing. My only complaint was that the bar opened so many bottles of wine, that we had many partial bottles left at the end of the night. But, that is a small thing in the scope of things. I would definitely recommend Sage.
