  • We are extremely pleased and amazed with the wonderful work and team from Cocina Fusion. Juliana was phenomenal and such a great help to us throughout the planning process. She is a very reliable and knowledgeable person. We knew we could easily seek her advice about anything regarding our wedding. Our reception ran smoothly thanks to her. She was very attentive throughout the night and we seriously cannot thank her enough. Overall, Cocina Fusion surpassed our expectations. The food and service was outstanding. The mole was perfection. Our guests are still raving about it. Kudos to the chef and supporting staff! We cannot say enough amazing things about Cocina Fusion. We highly recommend them!

  • 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!

  • I can't say enough wonderful things about Cocina Fusion. We had to replan our wedding due to Covid and Juliana from Cocina Fusion was the absolute best to work with -- she's professional, organized, very responsive -- everything you dream of in a vendor . From the tasting to our wedding day, they went above and beyond. Everyone at the wedding raved about the food and a month after the wedding guests still comment on how incredible the food was! The service from the team was next level and every detail was handled including added safety precautions due to Covid. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and a huge part of that was due to Cocina Fusion! Truly above and beyond in every aspect!

  • Cocina Fusion is the only caterer I would choose again and again! The food and service was amazing; top quality!! Marcela was so great in the planning process and supporting my nutty demands (can you send me pics of how this would look?)! Again, best service ever! The appetizers, main course and late night snacks were to die for. We are still getting compliments on the food! Know that when you hire Cocina Fusion you are putting your money on the right team who will go above and beyond to make sure your day is perfect. You won’t regret it.

  • Cocina fusion is absolutely incredible, from the food, to the staff and service, and beyond!! Our guests raved about the food - we're still getting compliments! Juliana is amazing, SO helpful throughout the entire planning process, providing suggestions, options, layout for the event - you name it, she's on it. We had 3 wedding dates and a venue change 8 weeks before the wedding, and she was supportive and patient while we figured everything out. During our event, the entire staff was so attentive and accommodating of our requests, special shout out to Abraham, our bartender!! :)

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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 are happy that everything came together beautifully for your wedding day and that everyone enjoyed your first meal as Mr. & Mrs.

  • Let me start by saying Cocina Fusion stepped in to cater my wedding on about four weeks notice when my last caterer cancelled. They were organized and efficient in getting everything planned under such a short time frame. Marcela was kind, thoughtful, and accommodating leading up to the day of the wedding. That’s where the positive part of this review ends. I am shocked by how many positive reviews they have as the food was truly horrendous. Some of the worst wedding/restaurant food I’ve ever eaten in my life. I was not expecting gourmet food - I know that this is a reasonably priced wedding catering company and serving food for large events is challenging. But they didn’t even come close to meeting the low bar I had set. Now, they are trying to claim the issue stems from the fact that we didn’t do a tasting but this is simply untrue. We couldn’t do a tasting since we live out of state and regardless of whether or not there was a tasting, the food should still have been somew... Read more
