I have a coworker that is connected with Top Hat and trust her implicitly when I knew that Top Hat Catering was her choice.

These folks are awesome and professional. They've been in the business for YEARS... or is it decades? =)
They're very accommodating to make your day happen and can take on some of the tasks like tables/chair rentals so that you only deal with them and not multiple vendors.
They're good people and as long as you communicate your needs. Who knows - they may have the perfect connection to make it happen if they don't do it themselves!

oh... and the food is great too!
Did I say "great"? I meant GREAT!

We had a slight hiccup in communicating with a vendor only because of the 4th of July week, but that was out of everyone's control. Needless to say, Top Hat took care of everything and smoothed out the details with the vendor.

Nicholas & Annie took care of us, but that's what great people who take pride in quality work do!
I've already recommended them to others AND during the reception our guests were already inquiring on their information.

Top Hat is AWESOME!

Nicholas,
You and your Awsome Team of folks were above Top Notch expectations when it came to your services provided for our special occasion!

We cannot emphasize enough, about how much pressure, worry, and stress you took off our shoulders, once we found you & just let go to let you finish with the deliverance of your remarkable food, patience in your servers, and all done in a timely manner as promised!

We loved everything about you Nicholas, and to this day, our guests still can't stop talking about how fabulous ALL the food tasted, including those hor'derves!
Yum, Yum, Yum!

We're still recommending you to our brides and grooms, which we come in contact with, so no worries there.
Thanks again for making our memory a Fantastic reality, Nicholas.

By the way, we're in Aruba right now, enjoying the heavenly beauty on earth. Remarkably undescribale to put into words! WOW!

Sincerely,
Joseph & Rose Kibodeaux

Nicholas and his whole staff are truly amazing and wonderful people! The food was amazing - weeks later we still have guests talking about the food!! Not only did Nicholas come up with the layout for the reception, but came up with a timeline that fit perfectly into our schedule. The wait staff was so helpful and can't be beat! I definitely recommend Top Hat Catering to anyone in San Diego County and plan on using him again for any future events in the area!

The owner of the catering company Nicholas invited us to sample one of the proposed dishes and patiently explained how everything would work on our wedding day. Since my husband and I were planning and paying for the wedding ourselves, this meeting proved to be invaluable. I will always be grateful for how smoothly everything went on the actual day. Thank you Top Hat Catering, I will always recommend your services to anyone planning an event, not just a wedding.

We absolutely LOVED Top Hat! Their service was phenomenal! They were patient dealing with me and really helped me to find the most cost efficient way to do this as I am a brand new college grad. They had great service, on time, friendly, great with guests, amazing food. They provided such great service to our guests, the guests felt spoiled! I could go on and on about these guys! Im sure that like 2 months before our wedding I was annoying Nicholas by calling him all the time but he didnt seem to mind and always got promptly back to me! He is a very genuine guy. Very friendly and very helpful. It was obvious that he was there for me and to make my wedding the way that my husband and I wanted it. I highly recommend Top Hat Catering, you wont be disappointed.

The food was amazing and many of our guests commented on how good it was. Our servers were also top notch. They were professional, courteous, and responsive and often anticipated our needs and met them before we even needed to ask for anything. The only thing lacking in this experience was our interactions with Nick, the main point of contact at the catering company. During our initial meeting with him, he was professional, responsive, and easy to talk to. We created a custom menu and chose our color scheme. Things went downhill thereafter. His manner, whenever we had questions or concerns, was brisk and made us feel as if we shouldn't be asking him any questions. When you're a nervous bride, trying to confirm or narrow down details, the last thing you want is a vendor who makes you feel like it's not appropriate to call and ask questions. I'd recommend Top Hat on the merits of food and value but "bedside manner" definitely needs to be worked on.
