I agree with all the positive reviews on TGIS, the food is delicious and the staff is easy to work with, but I also have to be honest about my experience. We had one problem at our wedding reception. We ordered the chicken balsamico which is supposed to be stuffed with prosciutto and herbs but some of the chickens were not stuffed, mine (the bride) included, and guests reported that it tasted like Thanksgiving stuffing which isn’t what we sampled at the tasting. After the wedding we notified them of the error and they were very apologetic. They investigated and they’re not sure how so many chickens weren’t stuffed. It may have been just a one-time fluke but I’ll never know.

TGIS had wonderful food (our wedding guests had nothing but love for the food) and the Captain (Alex) was incredibly helpful and was able to seamlessly problem solved throughout the night. The service team was really polite and friendly. The planning was made very easy by our coordinator Mark Rivera, and the team set up the reception beautifully. The only minor issue was the bartenders seemed to not know how to make the signature cocktail we pre-arranged and were not as friendly as we hoped. That minor issue aside, we would HIGHLY recommend TGIS as a caterer for your wedding (and other events). They are not only a great value, but they really do deliver wonderful service and food. They made our wedding reception even more memorable!

So far I have enjoyed working with TGIS for my wedding reception planning! I receive quick responses from our vendor planner Jeremy and everyone is very friendly! I enjoy that we have wiggle room to switch things up and make changes, up until about a week before our wedding (just in case of budget changes). I appreciate the fact that there is no minimum number for guests at our venue, Betty Reckas Cultural Center as well. The monthly food tasting event also helped a great deal in choosing our reception menu for us and our guests.

We absolutely loved Jeremy Smith and his entire crew!! They came from Long Beach to Palm Springs with their fabulous
food and everything they needed - on time, pleasant, hard-working!! They even remembered to bring our daughter's
wedding cake! Our daughter and her new husband were so impressed with all the vendors we used for their wedding at
an estate in Palm Springs that they want everyone to know!! I can't imagine anyone choosing any other vendor for a wedding
reception or any other event!! We had 131 guests from ten different states and even Norway - and they all raved about the
food and the bartenders, so we are really "happy campers" now!!

Ok...first things first...super pleased with the quality and taste of our food. We had fun stations where our guests could try a lot of things. I am Mexican and my husband is from New Zealand so we had some meat pies and tacos to celebrate the cultures. They were very creative and willing to do all sorts of fun things for us. The service was great. Leading up to the event, however, I felt like I had to be very proactive to get information about the menu, pricing, etc. So, if you are proactive and very organized their food is great and reasonably priced.

OMG! I have never heard people rave about the food at a wedding so much, but our guests could not stop talking about the amazing food that TGIS served.

My *new* husband and I had wanted one thing at our wedding: to celebrate the fact that we met in India, and have traveled all over the world at our wedding. We searched for a venue that would accommodate our alcohol preference (being able to bring in our own alcohol), and found the Betty Reckas Center. TGIS exclusively caters for this venue, and OMG... TGIS is the most amazing caterer ever. We had their stations options with some of the most amazing food I have ever eaten. We pulled off our Indian food station as well as all of the other stations. It was just great.

Also, our contact at TGIS (Jeremy) did an incredible job, and the staff on the day-of were phenomenal. I can't recommend them more highly.
