Marcie and her crew are excellent. Really excellent. Sometimes they are busy and take a day to get emails back to you, but otherwise all the planning was seamless and FUN. SYR has great food, brings plenty to your event, and provides everything with such seamless effort that you hardly notice their staff as they work. The salmon was SO amazing--people have been raving about it ever since that night! The only thing my husband did not like was that the bartenders had a tip jar out. Since we were planning to tip them, we felt that was unnecessary. But they graciously followed our wishes to take that away, and the night was complete with a great clean-up job and leftovers donated to homeless shelter. I would work with Marcie and SYR again in a heartbeat.

Serves You Right is a great value and they produce really good food. If that is what you are looking for, look for further. However, there are no frills. They will not do a private tasting and are not very flexible to custom requests. Additionally, while they did their job, the wait staff the day of the wedding was not very friendly or happy.

Servers You Right Catering is fantastic!!! They catered our wedding last weekend and did an absolutely AMAZING job! I don't think I could have asked for anything more! The food was OMG incredible, the catering staff was friendly, helpful, well dressed, professional (no board teenagers dressed in jeans on their I phones like at my sister's wedding-until then I never thought about asking catering companies how the whole staff will dress) and polite, they all worked with ease together doing everything that made our big day seem as if it was seamless.

But the biggest thing for me was they were flexible and worked within our budget! Most companies would not even talk to me when I told them I wanted to spend 40.00 per plate. But Servers You Right said in this economy everyone still deserves a nice wedding and they will try to work with any budget.
I can't put begin to put words to how fantastic the owner Marcie and her chef Matt were during the whole process. Initially I was going to hire Servers You Right Catering for an office Christmas Party. But then the party got cancelled and the same year I got engaged so I knew who to call. They helped with everything, whether it is affordable rentals or what to stock the bar with. Servers You Right Catering gave us all the tools necessary to make this event happen as we had envisioned it to look.

We had the ceremony and reception in the same location (they even helped me find our location) so after the ceremony things had to be reset for the reception. BTW we went with the Brazilian Room. I was a bit worried as we had 160 guests and we were using the same chairs for the ceremony and for dining. But after the guest moved to an another area of the patio for the meet and greet with the new bride and groom , the catering crew passed drinks to everyone and jumped into action and changed the scene of the whole space with ease!
My friends and family can't stop talking about the food. I really like that the Chef buys things locally. I have since run into him twice at the Berkeley farmers market. He says he really likes to hand pick items and talk to the farmers about what is fresh. He knows everyone their so they seem to give him the best things. We wanted a Spanish theme for our menu as we were going to Madrid for our Honeymoon; the Appetizers were Stuffed Button Mushrooms with Colorful Peppers, Mancheco Cheese, Herbs & Breadcrumbs, and Colorful Fall Vegetables with Spanish Cheese in Flakey Pastry. On the Buffet: Local Leaves with Currents, Avocado & Walnuts, Champagne Vinaigrette. Eggplant Layered with Tomatoes and Zucchini, Drizzled with Olive Oil, Dry Jack Cheese (FYI I am a vegetarian and this dish is incredible) Fresh Fruit Platter 3 kinds of pears, Melon, Blackberries & Other Ripe Fruits,
Cheese Board with Spanish Blue, Goat, Camembert, & Gouda Cheeses, Vegetable Paella, Artichoke Hearts, Squash, Carrots, Peas & Peppers, Chef Carved Tri Tip, Marinated in Red Wine & Cracked Black Pepper. Every dish was cooked to perfection. The hot dishes were hot and the cold dishes were cold.
Servers You Right Catering truly is an amazing refreshing experience in terms of customer service as well. The whole staff from day one was friendly, professional, and considerate to everyone there, making us all feel like we were being pampered. I also want to say how great they answered all of my emails. I think I emailed them every other day! Since I live in Los Angeles I initially found Servers You Right Catering on the web and had never actually met them in person until the day of the wedding but their web site was so great and Marcie was so accommodating over the computer and phone conversations that I felt at absolute ease! Every question or need was met with complete satisfaction and without hesitation.

If you are looking for a top notch Catering Company for any party you are planning I suggest you call them ASAP.

These guys know what they are doing, and they know how to do it with panache and professionalism. There's no better quality for value than SYR. The food is delicious and very well presented. The staff made the planning process seamless for us. There's really no reason to work with anyone other than Marcie and Chef Matt at the Brazilian Room. From the first time we met them at a tasting at the Brazil Room, to the tasting in their kitchen, and finally the Big Day, you could tell that they have mastered the art of service.

If you are looking for the best caterer in the bay area look no further. Besides being affordable their food is better than any restaurant that I have been to in the last 5 years. They catered my wedding in August of 2009 at the Brazil Building, providing food so terrific that I still have people telling me so. I have rarely been to a wedding that was note worthy in this respect and they just blew peoples' socks off! Everything went off without a hitch and that is in no small part to the wonderful job SYR did for us. The service was fantastic and impeccable. Everyone was so helpful and friendly too! One other good point is that they are a bay area green business now. I am really into being green and since they were so close to the event site was very important to me. Some of the other caterers the place recommends were so far away. I definitely recommend Serves You Right Catering and I give them 10 STARS.

We were just married, at the Brazilian Room in Tilden Park, and this company is one of only about 15 options if you are having an event there.
We got to taste a couple of things at a Brazilian Room open house (they don't do private tastings), but it was excellent.
We butted heads with them over the location and staffing of the bar (we provided our own bartender, kegs and jockey box, since their employees don't serve from kegs). Between the two of us and our event coordinator, we went back and fourth with them for about a month, before getting it where we wanted...out on the patio, not inside crowding tables.
Aside from this, we were told by Marcie that the Brazilian room doesn’t allow wine on the tables, which we found out from the Brazilian room was completely false....I can only guess this was an attempt to charge us for another server, or merely to keep things as simple as possible for she and her staff.
On the day of the event, Marcie and the staff seemed supportive and professional, until we spoke to our friend who was pouring beer. Apparently, Marcie was rude to her and not very helpful.
Overall the food was excellent, but the communication was misleading at times and not that friendly. We felt one should not have to fight against or convince, someone that they are paying for a service, to get what they want.
We are both pretty even keeled people, and not hard to deal with or demanding, so you must weigh your options...good food and headaches, or find a different caterer, with good food as well.

These guys catered my wedding and friends and family are still raving about the fantastic job they did!!! Besides the best food on the planet the service is over the top great! The staff is dressed professionally, friendly, helpful and upbeat. They take care of your needs and are on top of it without being on top of you. I really wanted not to have to worry about anything on my wedding day. I have a big family and they always need my attention.... Well I did not need to worry and I just sat back and enjoyed myself. I don't know why I even thought about how the one set of chairs the event site had were going to be moved inside-I even lost sleep over it. I did not even notice they moved them when they got moved they were so fast and quick. They served everyone drinks soon after we said I do which was great because everyone always wants a drink then. And no bar lines which everyone hates. On to the food- from the appetizers which were beautifully presented on gold trays garnished with fresh flowers to the food on the buffet which was hot, fresh and cooked to perfection. The tri tip was cooked med rare for my new husband to well for my Dad. And my Mom who is on a wheat free diet they planned a menu to make her happy. They have an on-site chef who really can cook! So if you're looking for a company to cater your wedding make sure you book them.
