From start to finish, Santa Barbara was incredible. We worked with Lauren who was kind, responsive, helpful, and flexible. Just like Lauren, the entire staff at the wedding was professional and SO nice! Moreover, our guests were talking about the appetizers for days! We wouldn't have done it any other way. Santa Barbara was everything we had hoped!

Working with Santa Barbara was great. Nikki was great and very good at communication. The only thing I was a bit disappointed about was when we did the taking and tasted the food we choose it was amazing. At the wedding the veggies I choose were not what was served and the stuffed chicken was not good and seemed like it was sitting for a long time or old. It was not fresh like at the tasting but the beef was to die for.

Santa Barbara did an amazing job at our wedding! Nikki was super easy to work with during the planning, our tasting was awesome and we never had to worry about anything. The set up the day of was really cool and modern and people loved the food. They were flexible with food issues, offering veggie burgers with our slider bar and veggie trays for a couple individual guests. Everything was fresh and delicious, the service was great and I highly recommend them!

Amazing, amazing, totally delicious food! Service was just as awesome! Santa Barbara is a little on the pricey side, but completely worth it! Guests still talk about how amazing the food was. From the appetizers all the way to the main meal, hands down, the best food!

Santa Barbara Catering was exceptional. My husband and I had our wedding at the Farm at South Mountain, April, 2014. We had compliments all night from our guests and for weeks following the event. This is what we heard "best wedding food ever" and "the food was amazing." This wasn't from one or two people, it was all we heard all night! The top compliment was on the prosciutto wrapped chicken- it was fantastic. I highly recommend it.

Also, the catering staff and head server were very polite and really cared about their level of service. I had to move tables around last minute and the staff was very friendly and helpful about it.

As The Farm at South Mountain and Santa Barbara Catering are a package deal, once we'd chosen our reception venue, our catering was chosen, too! Fine by us - we were thrilled to have such fresh, local food options for our wedding meal! They were flexible enough to allow us multiple tasting (I'm a vegetarian, so we wanted to try out more options for me), and customize a menu that was perfect for us and our guests. They were happy to have options for all of our guests needs - they even went above a beyond to have gluten-free appetizers made specially for the father of the bride!

We did have to ask our wedding coordinator to step in to help us resolve some pricing issues initially, and we did not end up with the catering team we requested, but in the end, the food was great, as was the service.

I was just married at the Icehouse only a week ago and I could not wait to write a review about my experience. Originally I wanted a low key wedding. I was looking for a unique venue to just hold the ceremony in and then find a restaurant to host the brunch afterwards because I did not want to plan all the details that come with a reception (linens, centerpieces, etc.) However, after we toured the Icehouse I was willing to forgo that idea and really plan all the details because I loved the venue that much. I could not picture my wedding day in any other place. The one concern I had was I must choose one of their approved caterers. Once I contacted Lauren Leonard at Santa Barbara Catering I was put at ease and knew I had nothing to worry about. She worked within my budget and was always eager to suggest alternatives when something didn't work with my financial constraints. Even with a smaller budget, I feel I did not have to sacrifice quality of food with Santa Barbara Catering. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Lauren. I would absolutely recommend Santa Barbara Catering! I want to get married all over again just because everything went smoothly and according to plan. I don't think I would be saying this had it not been for Lauren.

Santa Barbara cooked 80 duck breasts, all perfectly, and served them at a good temperature in a seated dinner. This is in addition to 50 tortellini dishes, and some special requests for people with dietary restrictions. They also provided passed hors d'oeuvres that were all delicious. Our guests loved all the food.

They accommodated us by making my mother's recipe for an hors d'oeuvre, and executed it perfectly. The staff was professional and courteous and made sure that the dinner and cocktail hour went off without a hitch. I could not have asked for a better caterer.

Santa Barbara catering was great to work with in planning our wedding. We chose to do a food station service for our wedding and we really liked the selections available. The tasting went very well and we were very happy with choosing them for our wedding.
At the wedding we can say that we weren't overly impressed with the food and wished we would have had the opportunity to taste/see all of our selections because there were a few surprises. We expressed that we weren't that impressed and they were shocked and did what they could to try and make up for our experience. I will say that they are great to work with and I really feel that they cared about our big day.
