Catering & Restaurant
My husband and I used to live right by this place and would tease that it would be funny if we ended up getting married there. Well even though we moved a little further down the street, this place turned out to be not only the best bargain for your money but it was PERFECT. The ceremony area is gorgeous, especially when all the flowers are blooming. We didn't even need the flowers I had brought decorate. The reception area is nice and wide open with hanging lights that make it beautiful at night. The staff was super helpful and on-time which for someone like me is greatly appreciated. They arranged it all just how I asked and Irene was always available to answer my questions.
We had a wedding here this summer and would recommend it to you ,too. There is a lot of light and open space. I met with the management team and they were very friendly and patient. The manager of catering allowed me to make my menu affordable and still a good selection and good quality. The food came out hot and delicious. My pictures came out beautiful with all the green trees and landscape. Irene and Aron were great!. They made my day one to remember. Everyone had a wonderful time.
A heartfelt thank you to Chef Aron, Irene, Tony, and the entire catering staff at Courtside Catering for making my 5.19.2012 wedding everything that I had hoped for and more! The food was out-of-this-world fantastic and my guests are still raving about it. The salmon with tarragon sauce was the best that I've ever had! Also, try the prime rib, Courtside salad, and macademia nut-crusted mahi mahi. Everyone was so accommodating and genuinely friendly. Irene immediately answered any questions that I had throughout the entire planning process, day and night, and my husband and I felt completely taken care of. From start to finish, planning was stress-free and our big day flowed seamlessly. I can't thank them enough and I would definitely recommend Courtside to future brides!
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND COURTSIDE CATERING AND THE SAN CLEMENTE TENNIS CLUB! Everything was perfect. From the coordinators, the staff, the location, etc. I couldnt tell you how much i appreciate all they did to make my day so special. Im not one to write these reviews but I did want to about them. Thank you, thank you, thank you. They are the BEST in Orange County by far. The prices are VERY resonable and the food is out of this world. Professionalism is what they do best.
Thank you again and DO CHECK THEM OUT! They are worth their weight in gold!
We had the worst experience with the venue coordinators there. I would not trust this site to remember who you are, return your items, reimburse you for bar tab (even though it is in the contract), or follow through with requests. With out my personal wedding coordinator, my wedding would have been a flop!
DO NOT USE THIS VENUE!!!!!
my husband and i had THE BEST experience with Courtside Catering. The venue at the san clemente tennis club(which is where Courtside Catering is located) is absolutely incredible! the pictures dont even give it justice. you have to go there to see it. its amazing with ocean views and rolling hills! i couldnt be more greatful to the staff. they made my wedding go without flaws. they helped me from day one and was always very accommodating to myself and the guests. the food goes without saying...FANTASTIC! Thank you to Kim, Irene, Tony, Aron, and everyone else who made my wedding THE BEST! DEFINATELY CHECK THEM OUT! you wont be sorry!
We had our wedding at Courtside and the venue is pretty nice. There are some things they could touch up but overall, it is a nice area nestled in the hills of San Clemente. The service is where things go down hill. When we were first looking at the venue we were promised many, many things but after we signed the contract very little was followed through (unless we had written proof). We did not hear from the 'wedding coordinator' until a week and a half before our wedding and only then because we had persistently called. When we finally talked to someone, we found out the previous coordinator had left and they could not find our paperwork (or some other excuse like that). We had asked to come in early to do some setup and that was no problem, but when we needed some assistance, no one was able to help us. The wedding coordinator did not show up until about 1 hour before the reception was to begin (we were told she would be there by noon at the latest which would have been 5 hours before). When it came to the wedding, we found a waiter sitting at one of the tables relaxing, the coordinator ended up in our pictures for the grand entrance because she had to peak her head around, and, best of all, our $200 bottle of champagne went missing for a while and came back significantly lower than when it left.
I would HIGHLY not recommend Courtside. Do not go there! You will be disappointed.
Courtside catering was where my ceremony and reception was the location is beautiful, i loved having my wedding there. i did not like the wedding coordinators. our original wedding coordinator left and we were not notified until 3 weeks before our wedding, things were not able to go as smoothly as we wanted and our wishes were not fully met because of the lack of communications.
I just want to let all brides know that i had the most beautiful wedding at the san clemente tennis club. the place is beautiful and has an ocean view. its up in the san clemente hills and the ceremony site there is a garden setting which is very lush and green. the food was absolutely amazing. guests kept coming back for seconds which made me very happy that they were enjoying themselves. the staff was top notch and very professional. my wedding party and i were treated with the up-most respect and everything went as scheduled. i dont normally write reviews but i did want to commend courtside for such a great effort in making my wedding day very memorable and perfect in every way. thank you so much and i DEFINATELY RECOMMEND THE SAN CLEMENTE TENNIS CLUB AND COURTSIDE CATERING! Great job to everyone involved there!
Kathy and her team at Courtside Catering were phenomenal!!!! They are truly a hidden gem and anyone who is lucky enough to come across them is going to be very well pleased. They are located inside the Rancho San Clemente Tennis Club in San Clemente, CA. They provide an almost all-inclusive ceremony/reception package at VERY affordable rates for southern california. Having everything in one location and especially having the food catered from the venue was the best thing we could have done. There was no worries that the food wouldn't arrive or that there would be any conflicts. Kathy also acts as your own personal wedding coordinator for the rehersal and the actual wedding day! She was very professional and friendly to all the guests. I received so many compliments for her hard work! Do yourself a favor and look them up!!

Courtside catering is an amazing venue located in the hills of San Clemente. I have photographed weddings here for over 10 years. When it was my turn to get married I chose Courtside Catering at The Rancho San Clemente Tennis Club. They go above and beyond to make your day amazing. Did I mention the food is AMAZING, they have always made sure to have an amazing chef in their kitchen. Keep it up guys!!!
