  • We used Caterman Catering for our wedding. Kayla was great to work with and helped make some of the projects I wanted for the wedding a reality. Caterman did an excellent job of handling special diets. We had a number of guests with severe allergies or restrictions, and there was no problem with making sure our guests were taken care of. Our tasting was very fun, and representative of the dishes we were served at the wedding. We did, however, have a few small issues. The biggest was that a server cleared my sister's plate while she was still eating--she had her fork in her hand. We also requested certain cheeses for the cheeseboard, which was noted in our contract, but weren't provided. Some of the appetizers ran out very quickly and guests were disappointed that they didn't get to try them. I changed a dish after the tasting, and the dish we received was nothing like it was described on the menu. At a minimum, it said it had parsley but there was nothing green on my plate. I would...

  • Thank you to Caterman Catering for putting together a beautiful and delicious spread of food for our wedding. Here is a little background on our wedding and our search parameters: we had 200 guests, it was being held at a private residence, we were looking to rent all the tables/chairs/linens/heaters/etc. from this company, and we were wanting to feature several different types of food with food stations during our reception. Searching for a caterer for our reception that matched these parameters and was within our price range seemed impossible and was the most stressful part of the wedding planning process. Then I met Michelle. She was SO accommodating and helpful! The first question she asked me was my budget and from there she helped me figure out what rental or food items we could cut out in order to meet that budget. She even gave us recommendations on where to find better deals than what she could offer on certain items. I had established a great rapport with Michelle and when ... Read more

  • We got married in Monterey and we were initially hesitant to hire someone from San Jose to do the catering for our wedding, but we're so glad we did! We did an "upscale BBQ buffet" and everything was absolutely delicious. So many guest commented about how delicious the food was. Erika was also completely amazing throughout the planning process and accommodated all of the little changes we needed to make. I would highly recommend Caterman to anyone having a wedding on the Monterey Peninsula or anywhere else! They're fantastic!

  • Best caterer!! We couldn't have been happier with the service or food. They were very professional, organized, and helpful. They had plenty of servers and were very affordable considering the food was really good and the execution was elegant. I would highly recommend them!

  • I'm so happy we chose Caterman to cater our wedding and rehearsal dinner. EVERYONE raved about the food at the reception and the rehearsal dinner! It was all so amazing! Chef Rene was awesome and always made himself present to make sure everything was up to our expectations. Our guests were impressed with his great customer service! They were extremely flexible in making customized menus and were always willing to accommodate our needs. We would definitely choose to work with Caterman again!

  • Great food, great servers, great chef. They were all very attentive to the guests and went a little above and beyond what their requirements were. I was able to buy my own table cloths for cheaper, and they used them. Any change I wanted, she had a new estimate ready for me in a day. I have nothing to complain about them!

  • Ignore the stars for "Value" and "Quality of Service" as we ultimately did not use their service. This was not at all due to a bad impression of the company but rather due to a change in our personal wedding style (decided we're going for an intimate potluck instead). However, I had a positive interaction with them worth noting, as they responded to my questions fully and promptly. Excerpts from an email with the event coordinator, Kayla, below: Thank you so much for your interest in Caterman Catering. My name is Kayla and I am the event coordinator for the company. Attached are a couple of breakfast menus for you as well as our ______ buffet menu.. Our prices include only the food. We are a full service catering company, meaning that we can supply rentals, beverages, staffing, you name it! All of our menus are listed as buffet, however they can be used as family style or sit-down as well for the same pricing. I would love to put together a full price quote for you, but first ne...

  • My husband and I got married over Labor Day weekend and used Caterman for our catering, bartending, and linens/dinnerware rentals. Overall, we were really impressed with our whole experience with Caterman. We worked with Erika and being foodies, must've changed up the menu (and headcount/table setup) about 10 different times in the last couple weeks before the wedding. Erika was always incredibly professional whenever new changes were sent her way (patiently and very promptly dealing with our questions and never seeming irritated when doing so) and also very helpful (offering up her own input when we were being indecisive on menu options and throwing out helpful ideas wherever possible (as one example, when we mentioned we were doing ice cream sandwiches as one of our desserts, she recommended we get dry ice vs regular ice because she had a previous experience where the ice cream didn't hold up too well with regular ice, which we would've never known otherwise)). The day of the wed... Read more

  • The person that we originally dealt with left her job about 4 months before our wedding and the hand-off was a little sloppy but other than that you guys were great! The food was wonderful, the service was perfect and the people were super friendly and professional.
