  • I just can't say enough great things about Doug and DJ's Catering! It was so easy having them provide both catering and rentals - and they made the wedding craziness easy to navigate: from initial contact, through tasting and the big day! The day-of team (piloted by Joey) was on point at all times - unobtrusive but right there when you needed them. The food was so delicious that guests went back for seconds...and thirds! I highly recommend DJ's for any event - you (and your guests) will not be disappointed!

  • I am still getting so many compliments on our food at the wedding, but the service is really what stands out in my mind. Felicia was in charge of the onsite team and she was so friendly and helpful. She made sure we had a sampling of our cocktail hour appetizers and also got us a plate the minute we sat down at the head table. She was always smiling and making sure everyone was good. I used their bartenders as well, and they were so friendly. I left some prosecco and sparkling cider for the champagne toast - and they just knew to go around to the tables asking which people would prefer. I didn't even have to instruct (because I totally forgot also!) Working with Doug and his team for the tasting was great. I was worried that the food at the tasting would be better than at the event due to small batch vs. large batch production, but we were wrong. The food was just as good (if not better!). I was sad I couldn't finish my whole plate - but it's saying a lot if the bride does get to her ... Read more

  • DJ’s California Catering is AMAZING! From the minute John sent their proposal that broke down everything they could do for our event, we were impressed. Doug was able to provide all of the things we had dreamed of, including really random things like a popcorn machine to hand out popcorn, and all of it at the most incredible rate. He was so knowledgeable and brought to our attention things we would never have thought of. Between the tasting and the walk through of the venue, we could already see how professional they were - their attention to detail, experience and flexibility just made things that much easier for us! His staff, including Randy who was running the show that night, were so wonderful throughout the entire wedding, making sure the newlyweds were taken care of just as much as the guests and always with a smile. Our friends are still talking about their fantastic Mac and Cheese and Fried Chicken – and half of our family is from the South so you know it was the real... Read more

  • I am so glad we decided to go with DJ's California Catering. Doug is the owner and he really took the time to go over all the details with us. We ended up doing our rentals through DJ's as well and they had great prices for really high quality goods. I was also VERY impressed with Randi who was our on site coordinator. She was so professional and made sure that my husband and I each got plates, and helped us manage the flow of the dinner (we did not have our own coordinator). Oh, and the food was AMAZING!!! I would 100% recommend DJ's to anyone looking for catering and/or rentals!

  • Talk about excellent everything!! If I could give DJ's 10 stars I would. I emailed back and forth with Doug about what I was looking for and he was always extremely prompt and informative. When he said he would call to go over everything a week or so before the wedding, he did. He spent the time to go over every detail to make sure we were on the same page and that everything was set for the big day. Unbelievably easy to work with and professional! He also had a ton of linens, a bar, and cooking tools so I didn't have to rent them from my rental company which would have been more expensive. Day of the wedding: Staff was insanely professional and friendly! The food was amazing!! I got so many compliments from so many of the guests!! I was budgeting so I went with buffet style and they made the presentation look absolutely beautiful! They cleaned up at the end and left the place looking spotless. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!

  • I cannot say enough about how DJs catering made our wedding everything we dreamed it would be. Not only was the food fantastic but they executed our requests above and beyond expectations. From the cocktail hour appetizers being served by white-gloved servers, the family-style dinner and variety was exquisite to the custom antipasto platter and late night Poutine Snack, Doug and his team are magnificent. DJs brought all the linens, dishware, glassware, dance floor and heat lamps. They even cooked a suckling pig for our family tradition. We challenged them to do new and different recipes and DJs delivered. They even imported the cheese curds we wanted all the way from Minnesota! We would use DJs again for ANY important occasion. They went above and beyond to deliver perfection.

  • I am so so happy I picked DJs catering for my wedding at Lion's Park in Carpinteria 10/29/16. The food was seriously so amazing, the Tri tip was cooked to perfection, the chicken was tender and moist and the mac and cheese was equally delicious. All guests raved about our food. The staff was so friendly, attentive, professional and did an amazing job setting up the ceremony site and reception area. They were also extremely prompt when delivering items day before wedding and day of wedding. All email and phone communication with Doug was easy, he is so friendly and quick to reply. He was quick to update the proposal with any changes. Would not hesitate to recommend this amazing catering company. My wedding planner, who has been in the business for 15 years, stated she was extremely impressed by the catering staff and food. Thank you DJs!

  • We had to use DJ's catering at our venue, and while they were pretty pricey I cannot complain about one thing. The lead that night, Patty, introduced herself and was very attentive to both me and my husband. She made sure we were well fed and had drinks all night. The staff was equally amazing, plates were cleaned promptly and the bartender was great---I had compliments all night on the food and the staff. None of our guests went home hungry, I only wish we would have asked for a plate to go, it was so good!!

  • DJ's California Catering is the best! They catered our August wedding at the Ty Warner Sea Center. The food was amazing. The service was impeccable. They really helped make our wedding fantastic. We could not be happier with everything they did. And they did everything at a very reasonable price. Doug is an absolute saint. He answered all of our numerous questions, and he always did it with a smile. He was such a pleasure to work with, and we will recommend him and DJ's to everyone. Book them!!!

  • DJ's catering did my wedding on 7/16/16 at the Newhall Mansion and let me tell you, everything was perfect!! My guests are still raving about the food and their team. I have heard 'that was the best food I've ever had at a wedding' about 200 times. Guests even asked if they had a restaurant they could go to! You're not getting 'wedding food' with this company, you are getting high quality, fresh and delicious food that you want to eat over and over again. The food was spectacular, their staff was so friendly and the coordination between myself and Doug was fantastic! They are such a great company and I highly recommend them!

  • We had the best food and wonderful service at our wedding at the Malibu West Beach Club! We heard about DJ's Catering through our venue's preferred vendors list, and we are so glad that we chose them. We primarily worked with Doug and John, and every time we met with them or had questions they were very quick to respond and professional. Jessie was our coordinator on the day of our wedding, and she was so sweet, friendly, and always making sure all of our guests were happy. Not only was the food perfect, but we were able to rent our arch, tables, and much more through them. Their team made our day so special and we would highly recommend them!

  • DJ's California Catering exceeded my every expectation. Doug was fantastic while we worked on planning, every question, every change was met with a smile, no matter what I needed he was on it. Day of everything came out BEAUTIFUL. The staff was super friendly and helpful, when I was feeling over heated, one of the staff found me a cool place to relax and brought me some cool water and even found my new husband for me. I would recommend them to anyone for any event in the future. Thank you so much for being part of our day.

  • Doug and his team are fantastic to work with! We did a tasting at their location in Ventura and thought everything we tried were great! The only bummer is you really can't try any of the apps unless you go to a bridal show, but trust us, the apps are as amazing as the food. Doug was kind enough to do some custom apps for us to go more with our theme and just certain things we had in mind. Everyone raved about the food which you don't hear much from weddings! Highly recommend checking these guys out for your wedding or event :-) great food, great staff, priced right, and they even do rentals which helps save!

  • We hired Doug for my younger sister's wedding reception after reading online reviews and getting wonderfully-priced quotes from him. After we had paid the deposit, we started hearing from other vendors what an awesome job he does... so cool to hear! We had an incredibly tight timeframe for being able to set up the reception and he was very willing to work with us to make sure everything would work well. He was very quick to answer emails and willing to answer the smallest question we had. We ended up not being able to do a tasting with him prior to the wedding.... and boy was the food good!!! We had wonderful comments from our guests. The wait staff was very attentive and did a great job. Thank you, Doug and Team, for helping make our sister's wedding a wonderful time for our guests and very sweet memory for us!
