Silver Service Events
Jerry and his wife Anazalia are a great team at Silver Service! They should be called Gold Services!! They will bend over backwards to make sure the event is perfect! They researched new menu items, tested recipes, quick to change at the last minute and made everything run smoothly and perfectly! The food was amazing, the staff were extremely friendly and hard working. As an event planner, they were to best caterer to partner with! I would highly recommend them over and over again! Thanks Silver Service for everything!
Silver Service is great! Their food is delicious and you can't beat their prices.
As a wedding planner, I am always looking for vendors that provide exceptional quality, of course, but it is even better to find vendors that are wonderful to work with behind the scenes. Jerry is always great about custom-building a menu that will not only taste amazing, but will fit within my clients' budget and culinary requests, which ultimately allows them to get the most "bang for their buck" when it comes to the catering portion of their wedding.
Jerry is also great about display ideas! I've shared inspiration photos with him about how we'd like our appetizers or meals to be served/displayed to the guests and he has done a wonderful job at bringing our ideas to life.
The Silver Service staff professional, friendly, and speedy - very helpful. In general, (as with all caterers), I recommend hiring a few servers above the minimum requirement for your headcount if you can afford to, especially during cocktail hour and the meal service portion of the reception to keep the food circulating at optimum efficiency, but either way, you can't go wrong with this team.
It is a real pleasure working with Silver Service, especially with Jerry Bernat and his Banquet Lead, Kim, and I continue to enlist their services often.
Event Design, Planning, and Invitations
Oh Jerry....I have no idea what I would have been without him. He created a wedding for me that I had not dreamed possible. From the food, to the venue, to the service and his amazing staff, there was no detail left uncovered. People came hungry and walked away stuffed beyond belief. They were raving about the china, the linens, the ambiance....anything you can imagine Jerry and his attentive staff took care of it all. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Jerry for giving me the wedding of the century.
Silver Service Events is a top-notch, first class catering company. They recently catered my wedding, and the food, organization and execution was absolutely wonderful! When I met Jerry at the venue he guided me through the whole process, helping me create my vision while staying on budget. I really wanted to have a fun wedding and that's what I got! :) Everyone had a great time! The food was fantastic! Not only did guests come up to me during the wedding saying how great the food was, but even now when I talk to people about the wedding- they always mention how great the food was. Jerry, Analiza and the entire staff at Silver Service Events are professional, polite, responsible and an absolute pleasure to work with!
Silver Service and Jerry Bernat were a complete life saver when it came to catering for my wedding. Not only was Mr.Bernat kind and accommodating but he was fast with answering all of my questions and/or concerns. The food was great and exceeded our expectations at the wedding!
We would DEFINITELY recommend Silver Service catering to family and friends!
Wonderful experience. My husband and I used this service for our daughter's wedding. The staff showed up on time and was very professional, helpful and friendly. We ordered the buffet. The food was great and beautifully presented. We would definitely use their service again. Thank you Jerry and your staff for adding a plus to our special day.
Silver Service Events was absolutely phenomenal!
They have years of experience and know how to handle the flow of weddings. We had just under 200 guests and really wanted a backyard BBQ feel to our wedding. The Executive Chef whose name escapes me came up to me toward the end of the night to make sure the food was to my tastes. I let her know that it was EXACTLY what we were looking for in comfort food.
Jerry during the months leading up to the wedding and Robin on the day of the wedding were so thoughtful and very easy to work with. Our guests (even the littlest ones) enjoyed the hamburger feast all night!
Most of our guests didn't even notice the servers because they were so smart about when to clear the tables, when to serve the drinks, and when to serve the desserts without being intrusive.
Silver Service also set up our reception during the ceremony and it turned out more beautiful than I could have imagined. Thank you, Silver Service, you really made our wedding incredibly memorable for us and all...
Fabulous catering service!!! They were attentive to our needs, punctual, effecient. The food was wonderful and enjoyed by all my guest! What a fabulous cheese, fruit & bread display!! The prime rib was well seasoned, tender, moist! The wait staff was very attentive, helpful and professional! I am very picky about food, everything was fantastic!! Kudos to the chef ( sorry we didn't get to meet) and kudos to the staff!
I know people may see this review and think "there is no way they deserve a 5/5 in every category", but this is true for Silver Service Events. Allow me to justify:
Quality of Service: My bride and I were so busy on the day of our wedding that we seriously forgot to eat. Upon arriving at our reception, Silver Service Staff searched us out (the bridal party was gathering in a separate room) to make sure we ate some appetizers. They checked on us throughout the entire night to make sure we had food, drink, cake, etc.
Responsiveness: Every time I had a question about the menu or services my emails were returned promptly. When things got a bit confusing by email, I received a phone call.
Professionalism: The staff at our reception was very polite and professional. To be honest, the ONLY complaint we received from one of our guests at the reception was that she wanted a "saltier piece of tri-tip" and that Silver Service staff only brought her a salt shaker. (I don't think our guest realized that they didn't season each piece individually).
Value: We shopped around and were on a budget, and Silver Service provided an amazing spread and dinner for what we had to work with. Silver Service even threw in an "extra" or two for us, for which we were extremely grateful.
Flexibility: Both during our conversations about setup and catering and during the actual reception Silver Service treated us like we were the "boss". Granted, there were times when we wanted certain things and were suggested better options (which we ended up following), but those suggestions were made courteously and professionally.
Overall we were glad and grateful that we went with Silver Service Events for our wedding reception.
Silver Service Events and their staff provided me & my husband such a magical evening. We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful event. The level of service that we received from Silver Service Events made everything perfect! The owner, Jerry, was amazing! He was at my beck and call every step of the way in the planning process. Our servers, Aaron and Robin made our night completely stress free. The friendliness and attentiveness of the staff, beautiful set up, efficient clean up, and over all tone of our wedding reception will not be forgotten. The food was delicious! Everyone kept raving about the Italian meatballs (in red sauce) especially. Silver Service Events made our wedding reception exactly what we had hoped for. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts. We highly recommend them for your wedding reception, party, you name it. We cannot sing their praises enough.
I want to thank Mr. Jerry Bernat & the Silver Service Events. Every single one of our guest enjoyed the delicious food and service all your staff. Many props came from our guest saying what great service your staff provided, I will recommend your staff for future events. :)
Hiring SSE to cater my bridal shower was the BEST thing I could've done! From start to finish, Jerry was very helpful and always responded in a timely manner to my every request. Not only was the setup beautiful, but the food was delicious as well! Not to mention their pricing was very reasonable compare to other event planners. I would definitely recommend SSE to my friends!
For my 35th party i decided to have it catered so that i could actually be a guest at my own party. We had about 30 people total. I did a few searches online and submitted some online inquiries. Jerry send me an email with a sample menu and pricing very quickly. Other caterers said they would call me back or needed a week to send me a quote, so i was immediately impressed with how quickly Jerry responded. He even offered to come look at the property and make recommendations for where table set ups, buffet, etc. should go. We went back and fourth with the menu a lot and i really drove Jerry crazy, but he always replied to my emails promptly and was always positive. Jerry really cared that i was happy and was wanted to accommodate my budget and i was very happy with the final menu and price. The caterers/servers (Christa and Robert) showed up 1/2 before their scheduled time which was great and they were very nice and professional. The bartender, Barrett was also very nice and made great drinks. The food was very good. We provided our own desert and Christa and Robert were happy to cut it up and serve it. All in all i really was able to be a guest at my own party. Christa and Robert both even offered to make me a plate but i was actually pretty full from the yummy appetizers. The sliders were amazing. The brushetta was pretty garlicy but delicious. After the party was over they cleaned up and even helped move all the furniture back. It was truly a pleasure having silver service cater my event and i would highly recommend them to anyone that wants to throw a special event.
I could NOT have been happier with the job that Jerry and his team at Silver Service Events did for our wedding. He took our event on at the last minute, as wedding planning goes, and he managed to pull everything together very professionally. He was very understanding and worked within our budget, giving us more than we'd expected to be able to get. Our guests RAVED about how delicious the food was and how amazing their service was. Every time my husband and I turned around, his staff had provided us with a plate or refilled our drink. And, in true LA style, our sweet bartender had been a body double for Anne Hathaway, which pleased the single men in the crowd. I'd HIGHLY recommend Silver Service!
We had an outstanding experience with Jerry Bernat and the staff at Silver Service Events. Their work was accurate, professional, and exceptionally flawless.
The wedding setting was perfect and the reception was gorgeous.
Our wedding was everything that we had dreamed of and more and Jerry and his team ensured that the bride and groom had a wonderful time.
We would work with Jerry and Silver Service Events again and would highly recommend their service!!

I cannot express my gratitude to Jerry and his staff. From the first time I spoke to him on the phone I felt peace that my wedding day would be amazing. And boy did Jerry go out of his way to meet all of my needs as well as my mothers lol. The two of us together prolly gave him 5000 headaches but he never once showed any frustration. As a matter of fact when my mom and I would argue he would step in and help us meet both our needs. Whenever I would email him he would respond so fast and was always accommodating!
The day of my wedding I was a nervous wreck but super excited. I left Jerry to do everything I didn't
want to have a ton of vendorsrunning around. So he was able to provide me with all my floral arragments, rentals , set up and break down, catering and he even provided me a photographer. I cried
when I saw the final set up. I cried when I saw all my flowers and I must say the food was out of this
world. I didn't hear one complaint about it and my family and I are big foodies. Ppl came to me after
dinner asking me where I found the caterer! I pointed right over to the man and his team. The servers
were great and very friendly. I had the staff come up to me and my husband making sure we were okay
and always with smiles. I even had the chef come to us at the end of the night and I thought it was way
I will always recommend Silver Service. As a matter of fact I have a huge company's Christmas party that I have to plan and will be giving Jerry a call soon :)
Silver Service Events is amazing - they were so flexible and worked very closely with us to make a menu and event that we wanted. Jerry was so helpful with everything and always got back to us so quickly. I could not have have asked for better food, better service and such a great price.
Hire them - they are AMAZING!
Jerry was always great about answering questions promptly & thoroughly. The service (on the day of) exceeded our expectations. Great all-around!
i used jerry and his amazing team to cater my wedding and i couldn't have been happier!
if you ask my husband or anyone else who knows me well, i am seriously a fat kid at heart. i love food! so the quality of food was a very big deal for me. jerry was so accommodating to me, and basically made a customized menu for me from scratch! needless to say, the food was amazing! he made this incredible butternut squash sea bass that was to die for! ppl were actually coming up to me to tell me how much they loved all the food!
not only was their food amazing but their service staff was the nicest, sweetest, most helpful ppl! i have been to many, many weddings and i have never seen such a smiley, energetic wait staff in my life! i loved them so much i almost wanted to steal them to work at my restaurant, but i would never do that to jerry ;)
overall, if you want a caterer who is extremely helpful and accommodating + amazing food + an incredibly professional and friendly wait staff hire silver service!!!
Sliver Service Events was our Caterer for our wedding. It was a huge disappointment in the end. Jerry was the person who represented Silver Service Events. He was awesome and worked very close to our wedding menu and everything. He understood us and gave us good choices within our budget. He replied to our emails within minutes. He told us that he won’t be around on our wedding day, but our six servers will know what to do.
On our wedding day, we never saw our six servers. Maybe 4 servers and one of them was very mean to our guests. That mean server threw a cup at my husband after he made a joke to his friend. It was an off color joke but the joke wasn’t about her. We had guests seeing the servers throwing away the wedding favors, origami decorations, and table numbers. We were told by Jerry that anything left at the venue will be put together and given them back to us. We were also told that the leftover food at the buffet table would be put together in boxes and given back to us. Our guests said that the servers were only giving very little portions of food to them and they saw leftover food. We never got anything back from our caterer. Jerry never told us who was in charge of the servers or who was the main server. No one ever came to us and asked us what time and where some of the things needed to be set up until we saw a problem. Jerry did end up being at the venue during our wedding. But it seemed like he was busy with something else.
There was a long waiting line for getting not only alcohol, but also sodas from the bartender. It was the only place to get any kind of drinks other than water. The cups were small and had too much ice leaving little room for soda.
Our bridesmaid, groomsman and the person in charge of the venue were helping us to set up and tear down the things that were supposed to be done by the servers. Where were our SERVERS? It seem like there was another wedding the day after our wedding at the venue. Did they go to prepare for the next wedding?
We gave Jerry a map of where to put our photographers table during our reception. Somehow our Photographers’ table ended up far away from us. The servers excuse was that all the weddings prior to ours had been placed in another room from the main room. We told them to move the table to where we wanted. They were planning to move the table in between the guests’ tables when they could have used another door, closer to the area they needed to set up at. Of Couse, that didn’t happen because we stopped them on their way there.
During our wedding, the servers kept walking in and out through the fake walls/doors right behind our main guests’ tables. They could have used other doors so they won’t bother our guests, but they didn’t. It was only a couple of steps out of the way!
We order a couple vegetarian plates for some guests. We told Jerry which tables needed vegetarian plates before our wedding day but no server ever severed them. If our guests were supposed to tell the servers that they needed vegetarian plates, at least let us know so we could tell our guest beforehand. Our vegetarian guests were only eating very little from the buffet table instead a meal that was already ordered for them.
We ordered a spot light that was supposed to be placed above our arch. We saw a spot light but it was somewhere else and it was hurting our eyes when they turned it on from that direction. Since it wasn’t working, we didn’t use it.
We tried to avoid getting mad at our caterer on our wedding day for not doing their job. My husband clammed me down when I was going to yell at the sever placing the photographer in the wrong place. All of our bridesmaids, groomsman, friends and families were working really hard on our day, and so we all had fun.
Sliver Service Events contracted us and were willing to apologize and fix the problems. Jerry made us feel better about the whole thing. He said they will work on changing the cup size and will also make sure that their employees do a better job for their upcoming weddings/events.
I would recommend Silver Service catering to anyone!!! We hired them for our wedding and they are a one stop shop for everything. Jerry was our Day of Coordinator and they provided our food, tables, chairs, chuppah, linens, china & outdoor lighting & umbrellas. They came to our house for our food tasting (so awesome!). We got to see first hand what their staff was like, what the china was going to look like and we got to taste the food and pick out our linens right on the spot. The food is delicious. We had stuffed mushrooms, shrimp cocktail and bruschetta, then Tri Tip & Cheese Lasagna for our meal. The salad, veggies, roasted potatoes and breads were all excellent. We had people going back to the buffet for 2nd and 3rd helpings!!! Everyone was polite and very attentive. They made sure the wedding party was fed during photos and my husband and I had plates made up for us and brought to our table so that we could mingle with our guest rather than stand in line at the buffet. Jerry was so attentive - answering all of my texts, emails and phone calls and coming to my house to pick things up and meeting with us to make sure everything was in order. They saw to every detail. His assistant Krista was great as well. She was pleasant and very very helpful too! The staff is just wonderful. I am so glad that I chose them to cater/coordinate our wedding!!! If the ratings went up to 10 stars... they would get 11!!!

I have to say that I was amazingly happy with them. If you have read their reviews, you'll always read about Jerry...Jerry this...Jerry that. There's a reason, he's awesome to work with. He is polite, responsive and has an awesome tempermant to be dealing with anxious wedding couples. Silver Service knows what they are doing and the prices are much lower than the competition. So much so that my wife and I were skeptical about quality at first. But in the end, they delivered. The rentals were classy and the food was great. We had many European guests and so making a menu was tough, but Jerry worked with us throughout the process. You won't be disappointed. The venue were got married at wants to have Silver Service as their preferred catering service.
One thing. Unfortunately Silver Service does not use a showing room with multiple guests to taste, so at first we could not tell what the overall presentation would look like. But instead Jerry even had people deliver the food directly to our apt as we tried to determine the menu.
So far so good. Very easy to work with, reasonable prices, they have the tables, linens and we are looking forward to a great dinner. The menu looks great.
I LOVE THIS COMPANY!!! Jerry was the best person to work with! We changed our menu like 8 times times and he was always so helpful. We went from sit down dinner to cocktail, we changed our venue 4 times but the always constant thing was Jerry! The food was delicious, the service was amazing and the price was affordable. Jerry worked with our budget to make every penny worth while! I will totally use this company again.
I did a lot of research on catering and I chose this place from a big list of catering places I had. They didnt disappoint me in the end thank god.
Planning the wedding was an enjoyable experience. Service during the reception was less than desirable - but I guess you get what you pay for! First, they couldn't find their wine key so no wine was served during the cocktail hour. Next, they set up my cake on a rinky-dink table which almost toppled when we cut the cake. Additionally, the servers did not follow the original set-up plan and I had to tell them to set up the sweetheart table at the front, not on the side behind trees!
I thought that Silver Service Events did a great job catering our reception. Throughout the process, I dealt mainly with Jerry Bernat, one of the managers and he was absolutely phenomenal. He was extremely responsive and very flexible. We had a rather larger reception (240 guests) with a sit-down dinner and they did a great job coordinating the food service. The selling point with me with Silver Service was the value for what we got. They have plates starting at $9.95 per person. Our price per head was not that low because of our entree selections, the appetizers and the fact that it was sit-down service and not buffet style, but it was still very affordable. They also provided our table linens, tables, china, glasses and flatware for us for a very reasonable cost. They were great. I highly recommend them!
silver service was exactly what we were looking for . . . a flexible, affordable catering company who could work with 430 guests. worked exclusively with jerry and he was wonderful. he had tons of ideas and was professional and flexible. the whole evening went smoothly. i would definitely use silver service again. as far as the food, it's average tasting but for feeding 430 guests, it worked out great! also, we rented everything from them: linens, silverware, heating lamps, etc.

Jerry is very attentive to everyone's needs. The food is delicious. They are EXTREMELY affordable!
