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.

TGIS is the BEST! Monica was our coordinator, and we cannot express what an amazing help she was. She answered all emails and calls in a timely manner, and always eager to help in any way possible. She worked within our budget, and did not try and sell us on extras. Monica was wonderful with her suggestions and went above and beyond! She is very detailed oriented, and even decorated the food stations in our wedding colors with the upscale decor at no extra charge. It is obvious that Monica truly loves what she does. She put together the perfect buffet that included vegetarian dishes as well as top notch deli meat sandwiches. Our photographer even felt the need to capture the food as it was so beautiful. Our guests are still raving over how good the food was! The staff was more than pleasant, and always smiling and having a good time. We also used TGIS for our rentals (chairs, tables, linens, umbrellas). We would not have been able to pull off our beautiful garden wedding without Monica and the amazing services that TGIS offers. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!!!

We worked with TGIS at the Betty Reckas Cultural Center, so I'm going to repeat some of what I wrote in that review.

We enjoyed working with our event manager, Jeremy. We let him know what we wanted and he did his best for us. He was also very available via email to respond to questions. He helped us with things like linen and chair rentals, candy/snack buffet stations, etc.

The catering was delicious! We highly recommend the wedge salad. My husband doesn't particularly care for salads and usually lets me take the lead in decisionmaking about the wedding, but he was pretty adamant about making sure we had that salad. The filet mignon and provencial chicken options were good as well. My husband's grandmother said it was the best steak she'd ever had. They're also open to your thoughts on food and different styles, flavors, etc.

The TGIS staff the day of the event was amazing as well. Not only were they great with our guests, but they were great with my husband and me as well, making sure we got to taste our h'or deouvres, had drinks, ate as much as we wanted, etc. I wasn't expecting that level of service, but I was glad we got it!

We had our receptiong at the Centre at sycamore plaza in Lakewood,CA. They use TGIS as the catering company. One thing I didnt like was that we did not get our strawberry lemonade station it limited what the guests had to drink. That being said, I think Susie was exellent and helped us every step of the way. Ive heard some bad reviews about the food at TGIS. However, we both enjoyed the steak as well as the rest of the hordourves. The value was also great.

The food was great! I wanted a Cuban theme menu and they nailed it. I am very sensitive to MSG and they were extra careful to not cook or have ingredients that contained MSG. The waiters were beyond great and professional and really made the food stations look beautiful. They are a very busy catering company, so be patient, but all in all, you will get what you pay for and much,much more.

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.

I was unsure of this caterer at first, as my cousin used them and they ran out of meat at their wedding. I was assured this would not happen at mine (which it didn't we had plenty left over!). The service was very inconsistent at first, it was hard to get a hold of the manager, but after speaking to him and Sofia about my concerns, the service was much improved. They were very professional at my wedding, Alex, the coordinator at my specific location was great day of and made sure our needs were being met. It was a drag however that the bakery they used gave us very little to work with and charged extra for literally everything! Oh and the food was great; the chicken was juicy and tasty, the tri tip had good flavor. They also remembered the specific requests I had made.

They must love to stress a bride the week of the wedding! The management was so rude and unprofessional the week of the wedding by calling me and trying to change contract agreement because they made error and blamed me over and over again. The food was fine and the waiter staff was incredible! No bride needs this the week of the wedding! That is what planning and contracts are for!
