A Grand Affaire Catering
I was so glad I found this vendor after my planner flaked out on us. Monica was a huge help getting us what we needed so close to the day of. She answered all my questions and put up with me taking things on and off the menu all the flippin time. I got a lot of compliments about the food day of and I was very grateful that her staff helped with the décor. They even turned on the lanterns on our head table when no one asked them to. She was also very understanding of our need to have strict bar rules, that was my absolute must. So if anyone wants a caterer that can handle an event where liquor needs to be controlled, these are your people.
Monica was extremely helpful in planning the catering. We had both hot and cold express items delivered. The delivery was on time and Humberto, who delivered for us, was very efficient. The quality of the food was phenomenal--everyone raved about the salads and the potatoes and roasted vegetables. The serving trays were elegant enough to be placed on the buffet table and all utensils were provided. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend A Grande Affair. Very professional and easy to work with. Superb quality!
I was very pleased with the food and service; everything tasted excellent and the servers were very nice. Monica listened to what we were aiming for a wedding style and even made some recommendations for ideas that we had not thought of. I had family in from LA who have been to some big LA weddings and events and commented how great our food tasted. It was important to me for my wedding that the food be something that my guests would remember and A Grand Affaire definitely accomplished that!
A Grand Affaire catered our wedding (125 guests, passed hors d'oeurvres during cocktail hour followed by two-course plated dinner). I received SO many compliments on the delicious food and impeccable service. Everything I tasted was wonderful, and all of the servers were so friendly and thoughtful. (Example: we'd had six cakes, all different flavors, and at one point I returned to the bridal table after dancing and found a slice of each type of cake waiting for me and the groom - the servers had known we would miss getting any if they didn't save them for us. So sweet!)
I'd happily recommend A Grand Affaire to anyone who asked.
We can not say enough to express how pleased we were with the overall service we received. A Grand Affaire went above and beyond our expectations. Their flexibility and willingness to work within our budget relieved so much stress from our wedding. The staff and captain were true professionals. I have no problem at all recommending A Grand Affaire to anyone who wants a worry free catering experience.

Thank you Darren & Sharon. You two were a dream to work with too and we really appreciate you and wish you the best happiness!
I used A Grand Affaire Catering for drop off appetizers for my wedding. Although I was unable to taste any of their food before it was all gone, all I heard from our guests were positive remarks! Monica was great to work. She gave great suggestions of food choices and was so patient with me as I changed my mind like 50 times!
We had A Grand Affaire Catering do the food for our wedding this past summer. The entire experience working with this company was wonderful. Monica and the rest of the staff are very knowledgeable and are great people to work with. We received so many compliments from our guests about the food, many of them saying it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. I would highly recommend AGA!
Unbelieveable good and service! We would recommend A Grande Affaire Catering to anyone!!!
All the staff that I worked with were very professional, but also personable and a joy to work with including the owner Monica. I would recommend them to my friends and family and those looking to have an event catered. The service throughout our wedding was fabulous, and I received so many compliments on the food. Definitely worth the cost, and really helped to make our event "A Grand Affair"!
We are so glad we chose A Grand Affaire to cater our wedding! Not only did Monica and her staff confidently and clearly answer all of our questions, but they listened to our feedback. Perhaps most importantly - the food was INCREDIBLE. We're still hearing compliments from friends and family about the Mexican-themed menu (their carne deshebrado is out-of-this-world). We were also blown away by the service staff during our reception. They were friendly, helpful, and professional (and funny!). We would highly recommend A Grand Affaire to other couples looking for a wedding caterer.
Beauty is very important to me. I am truly visual-- Monica Newby and her team at A Grand Affaire Catering do things beautifully, elegantly, and with class. This catering company can do anything. Name it. They're truly flexible and provide for their clients across the spectrum--anything from their delicious self-service catering trays to lavish show-stopping events that will make people talk.
I think the best part, though, is that in working with A Grand Affaire, you will get true, experienced professionals who care deeply about the success of your event, and have the ability to bring about that success through delicious food, attentive service and world-class presentation. Real people, who work really hard to please you, because you, your future business, and your referrals are ultimately the very best compliment.
We never got to taste the food before the wedding (which I was worried about), and it was only so-so. During appetizers, they forgot to put out the crackers/bread with the cheese platters and guests got a little confused. Our contact person with the company was rude to my fiancee during our initial consultation. One of the servers looked like a creepy child molester and smelled like cigarettes. Disappointed.
Vendor response to review
I'm so sorry you were disappointed with our services. I wish I had known about this earlier. I thought your wedding had gone well as your mother sent us a very nice thank you card along with an additional gratuity for the staff. She even purchased catering from us again this year for her birthday party, so I thought the food must have been quite good to bring her back as a repeat customer. In any event, I apologize that you were not completely happy with our services at your wedding reception.
The food was absolutely amazing from this caterer. It was also very reasonable. Everyone was very helpful and made our wedding so carefree. We were able to pick the kind of menu that we wanted and our guests loved the food. Also, the vendor allows to bring your own liquor which saved us a lot of money.
They did a great job with my wedding. Professional, courteous, and hassle free. I was pleased with the food, and felt that they helped make my wedding much less complicated. The price was right too!
We have worked with A Grand Affaire at many weddings and we refer many of our brides to them. They are professional and provide great food and value for the money.
We have had the pleasure of recommending A Grand Affaire to our couples for many years. They do an amazing job at providing yummy food and great service.

The food is great, and inexpensive compared to other caterers. The experience of the owner Monica is so extensive, all of your bases are covered when you hire A Grand Affaire Catering. She doesn't leave anything out and goes out of her way to take care of all the needs of her clients. Not only that, her staff is friendly and accomodating.
A Grand Affaire does not necessarily mean a huge party, it's any event with a little panache. It's the small details that make a big difference. So we pay attention to your special needs and give each event our touch of grandeur. Creative cuisine, professional service and expert event planning make it not just an event... but A Grand Affaire.
