  • Yolanda was great during our entire wedding planning process. She is very professional and always responds to questions and emails promptly (which was great!) Her entire team was absolutely amazing on the day of the wedding. We received TONS of compliments about the food and a few people have asked for our caterer information. One person said "Best food at a wedding EVER". Highly recommended!!!

  • Christie was absolutely amazing during our wedding planning process. She was professional and personable. In fact, every time we spoke with her it was like speaking with a close friend. She understood our vision and worked with us to make our wedding everything we wanted and more, while being mindful of our budget of course. The day of our wedding (02/16/19), Christie and her team were on top of everything and went above and beyond their respective role. The presentation of the food and dessert was gorgeous and was equally delicious. We received raving reviews from family and friends about how yummy the food and desserts were. Continental Catering is by far a company you can trust and want for your catering needs.

  • Continental Catering helped make our wedding a complete dream. My husband and I married at the El Cortez this past weekend (10/6/18) and we couldn't be happier with the food service we received from Christie and her team. Our venue coordinator recommended Continental from the start and we are so grateful she did! First off - the tastings with Christie in the beginning were so fun. Her & her team are so accommodating, we made 2 trips to their facility and decided on a menu with ease (the chicken & grits and boozy donut holes are DYNAMITE!). They executed the day-of food service flawlessly. We received so many compliments from our 190 guests, they absolutely LOVED the food & service. Continental helped us breeze through our wedding with no stress. THANK YOU Continental Team! We 105% recommend this company to anyone seeking an affordable, responsive, extremely experienced catering company!

  • We had the pleasure of working with Christie from Continental catering for our wedding this summer. I planned our wedding from out of state and Christie always made sure to accommodate a meeting with us while I was in town. We had multiple tastings at her suggestion to ensure we got the menu just right. She had helpful suggestions throughout the process and worked within our budget. We got so many compliments on the food in the weeks after our wedding. Christie and her team truly made our wedding come to life and we could not recommend Continental more highly!

  • Continental Catering and Yolanda, who we communicated with directly , were such a pleasure to work with! We really couldn't have chosen a better catering team because of the patience, flexibility, understanding, and knowledge of Yolanda and her team. Everything came together perfectly. The food, the presentation, the staff professionalism, and concern of excellence by the team were all top notch. Additionally, while planning, Continental offered complimentary tastings to ensure we got the perfect meal instead of us worrying about the costs before making a decision. This is smart, and was a big sell for us going with them because they made it easy and weren't trying to price you out off the bat like other catering companies. We're so grateful we chose them. They care deeply about your wedding, us, and their product. Go with Continental, and you won't be disappointed.

  • I have been to many weddings and have always found the food pretty underwhelming. So when it came to planning my own wedding I didn't have high expectations. I contacted all five catering companies on the preferred vendors list provided by my reception venue and Christie from Continental Catering was the only one that actually called and asked us about ourselves, our favorite cuisines, and vision for the wedding. She then created a menu just for us... one that perfectly captured our tastes. When we did the tasting, the food was incredible and we were excited for the wedding, but still didn't expect the food to be as good when cooked in mass quantity. Needless to say (from our rating), the food was AMAZING on the big day. Every single guest I talked too that evening brought up the food, saying that they'd never had such delicious wedding food. Days later and we're still eating the leftovers and loving them. Beyond the food, Christie at Continental Catering made the planning process feel... Read more

  • Continental killed it. I was so so impressed with the quality of their presentation during our wedding, the professionalism of their staff, and the tastiness of their food. ( Brownie sundae bar? DO IT). We served tacos for 120 people and everything was warm and delicious. Yolanda is a total professional.

  • Continental Catering (especially Yolanda Meza) did a fantastic job catering our 122 person wedding at the Martin Johnson House. Everyone at our wedding raved about the food, including the cheese table, pineapple-coconut shrimp appetizer, seared ahi appetizer, ginger soy glazed salmon, shortribs, garlic mashed potatoes, and balsamic grilled veggies! We decided to do a duet with half a portion of salmon and half a portion of shortribs, to avoid having to ask people for their preference and the portions provided by Continental were huge! All of their staff is friendly and very professional. Our wedding color was rose gold and Yolanda went out of her way to buy a few rose gold decorations for our donut bar and the cheese table. That was very sweet of her. The only thing that we had an issue with was my parent's table was not served until later in the dinner service, which was a minor oversight, but other than that I highly recommend Continental Catering. They did an excellent job communica... Read more

  • This was the first place we tasted at and we didn't have to search much further to see that this was the best value for the quality. Yolanda was a dream to work with! She was very responsive and changed our quote many times to customize it to our needs. The tasting was delicious and we had a hard time choosing, but we loved the food we picked and so did our guests!! I heard many times "this is not standard wedding food!" and "Food was so good!!"... so we are very happy with the services we had through continental! They provided our linens and they were perfect. The decor they provided for the food stations was a little much for my taste (& I even suggested keeping it simple lol) but it was all still so beautifully done! The only drawback that comes to mind is a small miscommunication the week of the wedding, where it was suggested that we hire MORE staff because of the locations we were having cocktail hour and dinner ($250 each staff member). This was at the San Diego Botanic Gardens.... Read more

  • Your caterer will be the most important vendor at your wedding. I chose Continental Catering for three reasons. 1) They were very responsive 2) Their pricing was very competitive 3) Yolanda is an absolute professional. I got married at Scripps Seaside Forum Feb 2017. There is a designated list of caterers from which you can choose. I decided to compare a few caterers before committing to them and let me save you lots of time and tell you to just choose Continental. Other caterers were not as responsive and made it difficult to schedule tastings. Many of the caterers asked if I had a wedding planner like that should matter. For one, Yolanda responds to emails, texts and calls within a day or so and made it extremely easy to schedule a tasting. Second, I tried to get a tasting scheduled with UCSD (they charge for tastings) and they gave me only 2 options in an entire month of December and when I agreed to one of them, 4 days before they canceled on me and wanted to reschedule ...

  • Continental Catering and Ashley Rose were so great for our Wedding Reception! They were really accommodating with our requests, and definitely wanted to make sure we had the best experience. The day of the wedding, and I'm sure many brides can relate, you barely have time to try any of the food, but Ashley made sure to grab me a plate of the amazing mushroom quesadilla and veggie rolls! It was really sweet and thoughtful. The overall presentation and delivery of the food was fantastic. Many of our guest complimented us on the food and drink at the wedding. They were also great about accommodating any dietary restrictions for our guests. They made specialty cocktails for us that were really fresh and original. The added twist to our wedding was that we planned it in five months, and Continental did not bat an eye at the fact that we were on a tighter schedule than most. They worked with us, communicated well and delivered amazing results. We truly want to thank Ashley and her team f... Read more

  • Continental Catering was wonderful - from the beautiful displays, delicious foods, and overall ease to work with, I feel incredibly lucky we hired them for our wedding in April. Everyone LOVED the food and all we've been hearing is high praise from our guests. Additionally, the staff that night was super attentive from beginning to end. We worked with Christie who was always quick to respond and provided options when we had to rework our budget a bit. Additionally, she made sure the extra local touches we requested (my husband is from Chicago and I'm from NY) were handled and set up perfectly. She is so great, she even hung around to snap a picture of me and my dad prior to him walking me down the aisle :). We truly appreciate their hard work, delicious food, beautiful displays, and professionalism!

  • Yolanda was so patient and helpful over the course of the year that we spent organizing the catering for our wedding reception. We had a couple of tastings to select the appetizers and entrees, where we were able to ask questions and make adjustments so that the food suited our tastes. We selected seared scallops, sliders, and beef brochettes for appetizers, and salmon with sweet potato pancake, beef tenderloin with vegetables, and chicken adobo over rice for our station entrees. We cannot think of a better meal to have eaten on our wedding day! Our guests can't stop talking about how delicious all of the food was, which is pretty unheard of for most of the weddings I've been to. In fact, Yolanda and the chefs worked closely with us to make the chicken adobo, a dish that is dear to our hearts. While all of the food was fabulous, the chicken adobo was especially impressive and was a big hit with all of our guests. Even my relatives from the Philippines approved! Not only was the...
