We worked with Melissa. She is the sweetest person and was very very fun to work with. She gave great recs for food, flatware, linens to fit our budget. Her staff is very professional and response was within a day or so. Very experienced in the wedding/catering industry.

Our guests LOVED the food! For cocktail hour, we had a meat/cheese/fruit station along with passed small bites of dungeness crab with a truffle aioli, bacon-wrapped scallops and bacon-wrapped dates, and Korean beef on a savory pancake. For dinner, we had an amuse bouche with seared tuna, a frisee salad, and the sea bass and the filet mignon options as the entrée. We are so happy that the guests enjoyed the food just as we enjoyed it at our tasting!

We worked with Annie from TJE and she was fabulous. She answered all of our questions, and gave us all the details we wanted to know! And we had a LOT of questions (spreadsheets of rentals, coordination of rentals with other vendors, menu selections/ items for the cocktail hour, and more!) since we were not familiar with this whole wedding-planning process at all! And as always with wedding things, budget is always in the picture and TJE worked really hard to put our budget into consideration. TJE was totally flexible in scheduling meetings and tastings and were easy to talk to and super approachable. They also provided insight in all other things wedding-related. TJE was not just an amazing catering team but a tremendous resource about the overall wedding industry. We really enjoyed working with them in planning our big day.

On the wedding day, the whole TJE team dressed professionally in their all black attire and had great big smiles. There were no complaints by any of our guests and everything seemed flawless. We would strongly recommend them as a caterer to any special event!

I went with Thomas John as a recommendation through my wedding coordinator, Caitlin Arnold. We'd just done a tasting with another caterer, and I was pretty unexcited with that one, so I wasn't expecting to be wowed, but I was very pleasantly surprised! The presentation was excellent, and the food was delicious!

For the tasting, we tried four appetizers, two salads, and four main courses, and I basically stuffed myself on all the amazing food. For our actual wedding, we went with pulled pork sliders, coconut shrimp, and artichoke bruschetta for the appetizers, and butter salmon with herb risotto and a grilled chicken with corn risotto for the main courses. My husband and I were not disappointed with how everything turned out. The food was delicious.

As for the service, it was great! The manager, Annie Ngo, was also very organized and nice. She really knows her work, and everything went off without a hitch. The food came out nice and warm, and I felt all the tables were served in a timely manner. I also really appreciated Thomas John making my husband and I a 'treats' bag at the end of the night (they sent us to our honeymoon suite with extra appetizers, our main courses, and two slices of our cake)! It was a really thoughtful touch.

Annie is a jewel! We worked with Annie for our entire wedding. She was more than a caterer. Not only did they provide the absolute best food possible, but they provided full-service day of wedding coordination which was a huge blessing! They provided a menu of suggested meals, my fiancé and I went through made a short list,, then we are able to alter and personalize every item on the menu. They were so flexible we asked for things they had never made before and they created them perfectly, beautifully, and deliciously. We asked them to alter ingredients for allergies which they did and the presentation was stunning. Absolutely could not have dreamed of a better caterer, they did everything their servers were professional and friendly and no one had to go looking for anything because a member of staff was always there to assist. We are highly impressed with this company! We even had a family member at the wedding change her mind about what she wanted to eat while sitting down to the meal, Thomas John did not blink an eye, they brought out an entirely new meal for her and everyone was so happy!

AUSSIE BOY meets AMERICAN GIRL
Tom, Carrie, and Derek,

WOW! Where do I even begin with the Thanks you deserve for helping create Aaron and my special day at the Thomas Fogarty Winery on Sept 30, 2011. You truly delivered great service and delicious food. All my guests still come to us and say what a great party, and the food was soooooo good. I love to hear that our guests remember the food and that they really loved it. Thinking about the food now I would like to go back in time and fill my plate again! Halibut, with a quinoa salad and veggies. Aaron and I are so grateful and hope to work with you again through out our many happy moments in life.
BIG HUGS!

We worked with Thomas John Events for our wedding in July 2009 at Nestldown.

We decided to work with them because of their unmatched quality and service level. Our expectations were exceeded on the big day when every detail was just as planned, and they even helped us deal with some small details (cake was undecorated, oops!) that we didn't anticipate.

Thomas John is different from other caterers because they will work with you to give you whatever service level you need - whether it means having staff direct guests to a certain area or accommodate specific food requests. Unfortunately this means you end up paying a bit more. We definitely thought the extra cost was warranted because of the great service.

Thomas John came to our apt in SF and spend 3-4 hours walking us through all the possibilities, and then we did a tasting (again at our apt - so convenient!)

Kristin and her team were really fun to work with and gave us exceptional service. We would gladly hire them again (but we're not planning on putting on another wedding soon)!

We used Thomas John Events for our August 2013 wedding, and the did nothing but impress the entire time. They were extremely responsive, and our coordinator (Carrie) truly went above and beyond to make the vision for our wedding day come to life. We used TJE for our rentals, lighting, and catering, and they performed all of these functions with an A++. Our guests continue to talk about how well-run and beautiful our wedding day was, and how AMAZING our food was. We could not have been more pleased with the level of service and professionalism we received from the entire crew at TJE.

Thomas John Events is an extraordinary company! Their hor'doeurves to their scrolled salads, to their flavored water, to their main dishes were superb!!! We loved them so much at our tasting & knew right away that they were the ones for us. At our wedding, the food was even better than we remembered. Our guests loved them so much that they could not stop talking about the food! They were saying things like "oh that was the best wedding food that I've ever eaten". You can't say that a lot about other places but Thomas John was soooo good. Mattie Mott was our event coordinator from Thomas John Events & she was wonderful. She helped out out with all the planning every step of the way. Our wedding was a Disney Fairy Tale themed wedding & she did so much to help our wedding turn out the way we wanted it to be. We wanted the food to match our theme, so since our theme was Disney, we wanted something that would go along with the food. After she put our menu together with the chefs, we were so impressed!We saw right away that she had put a lot of heart & effort; we knew we had to go with them- the tasting just finalized it with my husband & I.
We had stations, so these were our stations: the Jambalaya Station themed after The Princess & the Frog, the International BBQ Station themed after The Lion King, & The Pasta Station themed after Pinocchio. Each station had a photo of the Disney movie it was themed after & all of our servers wore black pants, black collared button up shirts, & Mickey Mouse ears! Everything was perfect!
Mattie was amazing. She helped us so much & if it wasn't for her, our wedding wouldn't have been the way it was. Mattie & Thomas John Events are more than words can say.
