I was introduced to Summit this summer when they catered the first of two weddings my husband and I were fortunate enough to host this year. I was so pleased with their service, food, and attention to detail that I hired them again for our second wedding reception just a week and a half ago. If I could give Pam Aki a score of 10, I would.

Holy cow are we glad we decided on Summit for our wedding catering. From the moment I spoke to Pamela Aki I knew I was in for getting the best service we could hope for. We hadn't even tried the food and I knew that this was the perfect match for us. They do SO much more than the traditional role of a caterer and the work hard to make sure they can stay within your budget by offering unique ideas and ways to cut costs. From our first email exchange I knew it was going to be good, then we Pam met me at our venue I seriously could have cried I was so happy. To top it off my husband and I went to a complimentary tasting next and the food and service was out of this world. I am SO happy we used them for our food. And so lucky that Pam happened to be our point of contact and manage our menu from building to actually being onsite to manage. I would definitely and have already recommended their services to other brides and business for holiday parties. Thank you SO SO much Pam and team for making our wedding dinner amazing! Oh and the mac-and-cheese is seriously to die for, I could live on that! :-) You can see a few snippets of our buffet in our wedding video: http://vimeo.com/110062579.

Got a unique reception idea? Summit will make your dream come true!

From day one of our engagement my husband and I knew we wanted the In-N-Out truck at our wedding. But the truck just does burgers. We needed a caterer to help make the rest of the reception happen (appetizers, sides, servers, etc.). As I dug into the pages and pages of caterers in So Cal, I put an inquiry in to Summit. Veronica called me within minutes of hitting send and I knew immediately Summit was the one for us!

Veronica took time to understand our background, the type of reception we envisioned and our budget. She had tons of experience (and a great reputation!) with our venue, the Diamond Bar Center. The truth is you’re not only getting great catering with Summit, but staff with the expertise to help your whole event run flawlessly. On the day of the wedding Veronica and her staff did an amazing job of ensuring our guests were tended to and well fed. Even when we hit some bumps in the road Veronica worked alongside our other vendors to keep things moving smoothly

Oh, and did I mention the food is delicious?! Summit provided tray passed appetizers, a French fry bar with 5 different sauces, as well as green beans, a salad and a pasta side. I lived in Belgium and fell in love with one of their frites sauces that I could never find in the U.S. Veronica made note and had the chef make the sauce special for the wedding. The guests raved about all the food!

If you’re looking for a wedding caterer who will help make your unique event ideas come to life (while staying in budget), then Summit is for you!

The most amazing food I could have ever asked for. Everything was so delicious!! We decided to do a pasta buffet along with a carving station and mashed potatoes. Unfortunately the mashed potatoes were a no show but the rest of the food definitely made up for the loss. I went back for more food at the end of the night and it was all gone! I've never been to a wedding where there wasn't food left over; just goes to show you how freaking good everything was. :)

The Best Caterer EVER.
We could not have picked a better caterer. The food was exquisite, and the service was exceptional. I usually do not take the time to reviews, but in this case I want everyone to know how wonderful Summit Catering and their staff is. Veronica was our event manager, and she was so helpful. She understood my budget and really helped guide me through the process. Every question, food related or not, she gave me very helpful information. I used a majority of her suggestions on where to find other services, what to do in hairy situations, and general advice/recommendations on dealing with vendors. I did not even have to hire a wedding planner because she was so helpful. And did I mention the food was awesome. I have never been so impressed by a company's commitment to excellence and superb staff.

Pamela Aki and her staff were excellent. They were professional and courteous. They catered to the needs of the bride and groom and all of their guests. The meal production was orchestrated in a timely manner.

Food is an important part of a celebration. The meal was delicious and the dessert was out of this world. Many of the guests inquired who the caterer was!!

The company was very easy to work with and accommodated our needs. We highly recommend Summit Event Catering for any catered event.

I booked Summit event catering for my wedding. We were able to work out a perfect menu with Pam and they even set up a date for us to taste everything. our food was not normal, we wanted three courses served family style. The first was Greek food, second Thai, and third was Italian. Each course came with a salad, side and, main course. Four months before our wedding our venue cancelled on us because they messed up some of their permits. The new venue we found would only allow us to use one of their preferred vendors. Pam let use use the money we had already paid to cater our rehearsal dinner instead. We came up with a new menu and they had everything cooked and ready for our friends to pick up. The food was just fabulous. No one had anything but happy things to say about the food. It came in a professional set up that kept everything piping hot, even after a three hour ride. We still have money left over that we are going to use for a very special dinner for our one year anniversary.

**** Love At First Bite ****

Question...do you want to work with someone fun, energetic and accommodating and have the most delicious food in all land at your wedding without breaking the bank?! Solution...Veronica Medrano and Summit Catering!!! When my husband and I first started looking into food for our wedding we thought we’d be confined to the preferred caterer list of our venue, all of whom were outrageously expensive and a little uptight for our taste. Then our wedding planner suggested Summit, we met with Veronica (AKA Muscles) and we knew we’d found a needle in a haystack! We were stoked to find out that not only was Summit’s menu versatile and mouth watering (this from a couple who refer to themselves as Team Delicious), but amazingly they were less expensive than all the other caterers we’d looked at even with the buyout fee!!! Veronica really embraced putting our personalities and cultures into our menu, we had a Shrimp Etouffee (a nod to my Creole background) and Korean Street Tacos (a combo of my Korean angel’s and my Mexican background)...we even had a salad graciously named after me on the menu, which my hubby (a chef) makes me for me on a daily basis!!! I’m not surprised at the crazy amount of our guests who told us, “best food I’ve ever had at a wedding”...because it was!!!! It was incredible, the whole experience with Muscles and Summit was a dream! Not only was the food brilliant, Veronica a ball of infectious energy (truly a joy to be around, so much so that I want to be friends with her), their tasting offers you a chance to try 3 other couples’ menus so you can pick and choose (should you like another couple’s choices more than your own) and they even pack up leftovers for you to eat post wedding!!! Look into them yourself and I’m sure you’ll agree when I say Summit and Muscles are worth every penny!

I used Summit Event Catering.
Thank you Pam and all who made my daughters wedding so special! First of all, I live 2000 miles away and was not sure how I was going to pull this wedding off so far away. My daughter lives in Huntington Beach and wanted the wedding to be in California. Pam was so wonderful to meet with me when I was in town, she even met me at the reception site over her Christmas holidays to discuss the setup. She gave us great ideas & helped my daughter make necessary discussions that I had suggested but were not received (sometimes they will listen to someone else during this stressful planning time, if you know what I mean! Haha) We had lots of last minute changes due to illnesses in family members and Pam made sure they happened, even though she was gone on her vacation in Washington D.C. Everyone loved the food!! She put me in touch with venders for our linens &the bar. Both were over the top. My daughters day was just perfect!! Thank you Summit and Mrs. Pam!!!

I was frustrated in my search for a caterer for our unique geek-chic wedding. Not only did we want to incorporate a Star Wars theme to our food, but we wanted "breakfast for dinner" - waffles, bacon, omelet bar... the works. After talking to several caterers who just didn't get it, or even worse, tried to talk me out of it... the heavens opened up and brought me to Veronica at Summit.

From the minute I started talking with her, I KNEW this was our catering company. Not only did she understand completely what we wanted, but she was SO EXCITED to work with us on every piece of it. From the menu to decor ideas, from KILLER appetizers (people are still talking about them) to our wedding pie for dessert (not a slice left), she worked with us to go beyond our wildest dreams of what our day could be, and somehow managed to keep it all in budget. Veronica even helped to manage our rentals to make sure everything was covered. And her team! They designed gorgeous and creative Star Wars-themed name cards for each item on the buffet, and the ham carving station server dressed up as a Jedi! They really went all out in every way imaginable. And every single person who helped with and/or attended our event was professional, fun and super sweet.

And did I mention the food? HANDS DOWN the most delicious food we tasted. Everything is delicious and impeccable quality.

Whether your wedding is a little wacky like ours, or elegant and traditional, you will not find better, more creative or caring people to work with than Veronica and Summit.
