  • Marcela and her team at Cocina Fusion were fantastic. We did a cocktail style reception with all passed appetizers. The food was absolutely amazing, the service was terrific, and the price was unbeatable, better than any other caterer we looked at! More than enough food for our guests and well within our budget. We expected the appetizers to be passed on black serving trays but no: each dish was individually plated with vegetables, garnishes, and unique flatware, which really elevated the food and was completely unexpected. My wife and I took 15 minutes after the ceremony to ourselves, and Marcela had arranged for food and drinks to be waiting for us, which was such a thoughtful touch. She was also present for our entire wedding, setting stuff up during and before, and really helping the entire event come together. I feel like we got a day of wedding coordinator for free, thank you so much Marcela! I cannot recommend Cocina Fusion enough.

    We are happy for the both of you and that it all came together as envisioned. It was truly a special event from your ceremony (loved how everyone circled around you both) until the last song! Congrats again :)

  • Marcela and the team did an amazing job from start to finish. The communication with Marcela throughout the entire process was flawless and her expertise made us feel at ease. It was calming to know we were in good hands. The appetizers and dinner were the best we tried! We have only great things to say about Cocina and are so happy we went with them!

  • Simply put: the food is amazing. Our menu consisted of Spinach and Cheese Empanadas, Chipotle Meatballs, Shredded Beef Colombian Arepas, Fusion Salad, Chimichurri Steak, Stuffed Chicken w/ cream sauce, Baked Plantains, and the Puerto Rican Rice and Beans. We are still getting compliments about how good our wedding food was, even from the pickiest eaters! Marcela and team were extremely easy to work and ensured the evening ran smoothly. Our only "complaint" is that they don't have a restaurant for us to enjoy the food all over again!

    Gracias Nicole & Eric (: it was a pleasure being part of your big day in the best way possible...providing your first meal as Mr. & Mrs. Our best wishes today and always, Marcela.

  • First off, the catering manager, Marcela is amazing. She's so warm and inviting, really a dream to work with. She's very responsive and on top of everything. The food was delicious overall. There were a couple things that weren't quite as good as they were at the tasting, but that's to be expected since for the wedding they'll be mass prepared and on warming trays. The service was awesome, the servers were very attentive and our guests were very well taken care of. Absolutely no regrets about going with Cocina Fusion.

  • Some main highlights from working with Cocina Fusion/ Marcela: 1. They were referred to me by three brides, so already I had high expectations. 2. For our NYE wedding, Cocina Fusion was the most all inclusive menu with the best pricing. 3. Marcela was an absolute joy to work with. She was professional, responsive, accommodating, sweet, and engaging through the whole process. 4. The waitstaff and bartenders were above and beyond. So attentive, so quick, and rolled with all of the punches. 5. I had over 20 people ask me for leftovers, told me it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. And for the record, the food was BOMB. We weren't totally surprised this was the feedback. I recommend them over and over.

    Hello newlyweds! BEST NYE wedding ever (: you had such a fun vision that entailed making sure your guests enjoyed every aspect of the night and making sure that got executed was truly a blast! Our best wishes, Marcela

  • Juliana is just a doll to work with! She is so conscious of how to make your wedding go as smoothly as possible! From figuring out how to incorporate a 2nd buffet just one week before our wedding to making runs for last second items that were needed (i.e. our groomsmen provided the appetizers for our cocktail hour and Juliana ran out to get plates that worked better for presentation purposes - she even offered to run out for more white wine when we ran out!). Her staff is just as exceptional as she is! They are kind and hard working and they really know how to go the extra mile! The food was phenomenal in every way! It was delicious (guests were raving about it and going up for seconds)! It was allergy friendly to meet the needs of ALL of our guests (which was difficult to do given the amount of allergies we had present). It was fun and beautiful (taco buffet served in artistic Mexican pottery - bowls, platters, dishes). It was fast and efficient (Juliana decided to throw in a 2nd buff... Read more

    Erin & Pat! You know it was an absolute pleasure to have been part of selected vendor team. We know you had a lot of hopes and expectations for the night and I’m so glad that we were able to deliver that. Can I also said you rocked your hair and makeup! Thanks again for the trust & congratulations! Juliana

  • Marcela & the Cocina Fusion team played a crucial role in a day that we will never forget. Having a creative and unique experience was something that we cared deeply about. Marcela and her team’s creativity and quality of dishes exceeded all expectations we had for what “wedding food” could be. There was never a doubt about the quality of the dishes after a personalized tasting session. But the level of communication and thoughtfulness that went into every aspect along the way was something we did not expect. The day of orchestration of all food items went flawlessly and we had many quests go out of their commenting on “how much fun” they had trying new foods and in a family style format. We cannot recommend Marcela and her team at Cocina Fusion enough. PS – Poblano Chicken. ALWAYS get the Poblano Chicken. Thank you Marcela & Cocina Fusion!!

    Hi Tyler & Emily :) We are glad your first meal as Mr. & Mrs, was memorable to you and your loved ones! It was my pleasure to be there throughout the process to ensure everything came together how you envisioned. And yes....ALWAYS Poblano Chicken ;) #teampoblanochicken Marcela

  • Where do I even start? Marcela and her team were perfect from the moment we met them at the tasting. Upon trying the empanadas, we knew we had to have Cocina Fusion at our wedding. It was the best decision we ever made. The food with absolutely delicious and the team was so wonderful to work with. It’s only been two weeks since our wedding and we have already received sooo many compliments. We wanted to do something that wasn’t boring “wedding food” but also wasn’t too out there, oh and it had to be delicious- and that was exactly what we got!

  • We were so happy with our decision to go with Cocina Fusion for our wedding! As my husband is Mexican, it was important for us to incorporate his culture into the day, and being able to have a Latin fusion dinner was a wonderful part of that. The food from Cocina Fusion was simply delicious, and we received compliments from our guests afterward as well. On top of the excellent food, the service that they provide is really special. We worked mainly with Marcela, who we can't recommend enough. She was so warm, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful through each step of the planning process, as well as on the day of the wedding. From start to finish, we felt like we were in such good hands. We definitely had a lot of questions early on in the planning process, and she was incredibly patient and helpful with each one, as well as wonderful in working with us on our menu selections based on our budget. As our venue allowed us to bring in our own liquor, she was also great in helping us gauge ho... Read more

  • Cocina Fusion Catering's food was out of this world. We had almost everyone of our guests we spoke with comment on how delicious the food was at our daughter's wedding reception. We had 175 guests at our wedding and reception and Cocina Fusion was hired to do appetizers, bartenders, served dinner, and late night snack, they knocked it out of the park on all counts. The food tasted excellent we had 3 choices for our guests, the beef chimichurri, stuffed chicken and vegetarian offering of a stuffed poblano pepper were all outstanding and food was hot! People were raving about their appetizers too especially the mini tacos. They were professional, well organized, generous with portions, we could not have been more pleased with the food and service. Highly recommend!

    Hi Cheryl, The wedding was beautiful! Thanks for trusting us with such an important task. Warm regards!

  • Anyone considering Cocina Fusion for their catering needs - look no further! From the very first correspondence with Juliana, I knew that we would be taken care of. After meeting her and her husband, Chef Anaxi, we were absolutely sold. Not only were they professional, but super personable and genuinely caring. Also, the food. SO GOOD. Our wedding guests absolutely loved the food. Where else can you get poblano salmon, risotto cakes, and plantains (just to name a few of their offerings)?? Juliana was very accommodating and communicated with us throughout. The whole team really worked hard to make our vision on our special day come true. I hope to work with Cocina Fusion again or at least eat more of their food!

    Amanda & Stephen! It was a pleasure to have been able to represent one side of your ethnic background at your wedding and to effectively help represent the other side as well. We can’t wait to see the amazing pictures. Congratulations and thanks for reviewing my business. Juliana B.

  • Juliana and her entire team are amazing. They deserve every single spectacular review they get. The food was incredible-- we’ve heard at least 10 different people tell is it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had, and (though we’re biased) we totally agree! Guests raved about the chicken, steak, and the mushroom risotto cakes. Aside from executing everything perfectly, Juliana is one of the warmest people we’ve met. She was so unbelievably kind and helpful throughout our process. We said many times that we were so thankful that we had the opportunity to work with her because she just exudes a calming energy in what can be a stressful event-- you just know Juliana is going to get things done!

  • These guys are amazing! I have been so anxious to write a review for them having just had our wedding because I could go on and on about their professionalism, quality, service, and deliciousness! We have received multiple compliments that our wedding's food was the best food our guests have had; from the appetizers to the dinner, even the coffee! Marcela is a dream and her team made our day run so smoothly and efficiently with the room flip from ceremony to reception and cleanup where they literally stopped my mother from her usual tidying up and said everything would be taken care of. I could go on but really all you need to know is...look no further!

    Thank you for trusting is with one of the most important days :) It was an honor to server your first meal as Mr. & Mrs. and of course making sure everything enjoyed the night, especially mom lol
