  • BEST FOOD! Phillipe and the entire team was incredible throughout the entire planning process. I was pretty particular with my selections and Phillipe was super flexible and accommodating with all my changes (even up to the last minute.) He really went above and beyond to make sure we had every detail covered - from napkins to serving utensils to deserts, coffee and tableside wine service. I also had a very difficult venue where he had to bring an entire kitchen to cook the food, so every food decision (or change!) I made impacted the ovens, tools, serving platters, etc. he had to bring on-site. I can't reiterate how kind and patient he was. It definitely impacted the cost, but I knew that when I booked the venue. Our meal was a family style italian dinner for 130 guests. We served a fresh balsamic salad with focaccia, and for the main a creamy risotto, seasonal vegetable and a divine Chicken Parmesan - which was such a MAJOR HIT, our guests still talk about it! The bartenders made on... Read more

  • Working with Philippe at Catering Connection was a breeze. He prepared a delicious menu for our 110 guests at a very reasonable price. He communicated effectively with us, accommodated some last minute menu changes, and the day-of service was fantastic. We were also impressed by his staff. Our guests kept complimenting the quality of the food during and after our big day. I highly recommend these folks for your Santa Barbara wedding!

  • Philipe and Ursula did a phenomenal job with ease. This team knows how to pull off a wonderful, elegant event with very low stress. I can't think how they could be more helpful. They guided us through and accommodated where we needed changes and took care of absolutely everything. They are more than a catering company, they manage all the details in a caring and flexible manner

  • Philippe and his team at Catering Connection made our wedding day absolutely perfect. The number one response from our guests about our wedding was that this was the greatest meal they had ever had at a wedding. From the very beginning of the process, Philippe went above and beyond to create a spectacular menu, meat our budget needs, and make my fiancé and I feel like an absolute priority. During the planning process, Philippe promptly answered every one of my emails and answered every question thoroughly and kindly. He was extremely flexible with every one of my requests and worked so hard to put together a menu and layout that worked perfectly for us. The week of the wedding, we were devastated with an unexpected rain forecast, but Philippe worked tirelessly with my wedding coordinator (Toby Theule, Santa Barbara Wedding Coordinator) to come up with a new plan that was both beautiful and functional. On the day of, the staff was so kind and hardworking, and the food was absolutely mi... Read more

  • Catering connection completely went the extra mile to make our wedding exactly what we wanted, all within our budget. Could not recommend Casey, Phillipe, and the rest of the team more highly!

  • Philippe and his team were absolutely amazing! Besides the food (build your own taco bar) being delicious and incredible, everything from the drink service to the set up to clean up was done so smoothly and without a hitch. The entire team was attentive and detail-oriented, making sure everyone had a great time. I had guests coming up to me, saying how much they loved the tacos and dessert. I truly thank them from the bottom of my heart for helping to make my day so special!

  • I had a phenomenal experience with Catering Connection! Philippe worked with us constantly to come up with a plan that was in our budget and when we had to relocate one week before our wedding he 1000% pulled through and helped us with the organizational change. He handled all of our questions, was quick to hop on the phone with us, was friendly and understanding and a delight to work with. I really can't say enough good things about Catering Connection and Phillippe. Most important, the food was DELICIOUS and we received a lot of compliments from our guests about how wonderful the food was.

    HI Katelyn! Thank you for your kind words! Always much appreciated by all, and it is always a team effort. Glad it worked out, rain and all! Phi

  • Would gladly hire Philippe and the entire crew for another event. From the beginning they were fantastic, responsive and reasonable. The staff was amazing at our wedding and the food was just as delicious as it was at the tasting. Truly, you couldn't have a better catering experience. They even sent over food to us to make sure we ate on our wedding day and routinely checked in with us. Their level of professionalism and attention to detail is unparalleled. We tried several other caterers, and they were far and away the best.

    Thank you Britney for your kind review. I am so glad we were there to help you and Aviv celebrate! Much appreciated!

  • Philippe was so helpful in picking out a good balance of different types of apps as well as portioning for the size for our party size. The day of, he was so professional and helpful to our guests, they had an amazing time eating and drinking. They also provide beverages, and coolers with ice, they were so kind to have it all covered. Saved us so much work and time. We're such a fan!

  • Catering Connection did such a wonderful job at our wedding from initial planning to final cleanup. Our initial calls were really straightforward and helpful. They were very flexible when I wanted to add and remove different things. We chose to have served appetizers and a buffet menu, we also did our rentals through them which made the whole process seamless and easy. On the day of we felt so taken care of, the Catering Connection team was kind and friendly, and they even made sure to bring us drinks, appetizers, and entree plates throughout the evening so that we didn't forget to stop and eat. I would recommend Catering Connection to anyone, they made our wedding day feel so special and the food was delicious :).

  • Phi and his team at Catering Connection created the most spectacular menu for our October wedding in Santa Barbara! First, the watermelon welcome refreshment was the perfect way to kick off the warm October evening -- super delicious and refreshing. For apps, we offered 4 different ones to our guests during our cocktail how...which was perfect! Phi's team has a HUGE variety of what they offer -- and everything we sampled was so so good!! Lastly, for the food...we decided to have a buffet because we wanted our guests up and mingling as much as possible...and this really helped make that happen. Again, the food -- there is so much to choose from. It is impossible to go wrong. People say "wedding food" never is that great -- but let me tell you...this was amazing!!! One thing worth mentioning: We didn't use Phi's bar services because we had a connection elsewhere. However, based on their service throughout the night...I have to imagine their bartending services would be stellar. ... Read more

  • I have worked with Catering Connection for 15 plus years; both on personal events and corporate events. They are by far the best group I have had the privilege to work with. They are professional, consistent, honest, generous with portions, but most of all personable. They make the event "yours"!!!
