  • “No one likes the food at weddings, but yours was actually really delicious.” We heard this over and over again after Five Star catered our wedding. And it was true! Our wedding food rivaled that at expensive restaurants. I’m still craving it. There wasn’t a single dish that missed the mark. Five Star has some very talented chefs. Not only was the food delicious, but the servers were great as well. They were professional, prompt, and even took special care to make sure that we ate. While everything was served family style, we were at a sweetheart table and they actually took the time to make us heaping plates of delicious food. They also did a great job with our drinks. Our bar and cocktails were beautiful and kept everyone well “hydrated” :) If you’re looking for wedding food that your guests will actually rave about, Five Star is the catering team to choose!

  • We could not have done our wedding without Wendy, Laura, and the whole Five Star catering staff! We changed up our menu a few times and every time the staff was totally flexible and willing to work with us. We went with a mexican family style dinner and it was the perfect amount of class and comfort food and was absolutely DELICIOUS! Wendy was present the entire duration of our wedding and ensured everything was absolutely perfect! We highly recommend utilizing their bartending service as well who were all super professional and delightful. Thank you so much Five Star catering for the delicious food and amazing drinks!

  • I was the mother of the bride, and we financed the October 2019 wedding at the beautiful Sand Rock Farm in Aptos. The venue has a number of required vendors they work with, and Five Star Catering was one of them. Fortunately, they were fabulous to work with, and we could not have been happier with all that they did on our wedding day. How often do you actually hear people compliment wedding food? We have received so many emails complimenting the food and the staff. There were delicious passed appetizers and drinks during the cocktail hour and dinner was served family-style at round tables. It was perfect! When I had questions and concerns prior to the wedding, Wendy in the office, was quick to reply and so helpful. They even thoughtfully packaged up the leftovers for the couple as they missed much of the dinner during the sunset photo session. We could not be happier with Five Star Catering. Thank you for making our day so special!

  • Your team was excellent and kept everyone happy with beverages and food on the stone patio, after the ceremony, while the pictures of the wedding party and family were being taken . When I finally got down there, I enjoyed seeing the chips and salsa buffet and the got to sample some of the passed appetizers; it was a pretty view and the cocktail hour made it all the more enjoyable. I thought you did a terrific job setting the tables and the cream colored napkins and tablecloths looked very elegant. The buffet went smoothly and the food was presented so beautifully that the guests were eager to try everything. I especially liked the vegan choices, since there were a few vegans in the crowd! Dinner also went smoothly and everyone seemed to be very happy with the service, I heard no complaints, which is always a good sign! We also really enjoyed the s'mores and the campfire kept us warm, so that was a very good choice! The bride and groom had such a good time, but so did all of the g... Read more

  • Five Star Catering's name is no misnomer! They were excellent in all respects when we used them to cater our wedding -- their food was delicious (so many of our guests were shocked that this was how good wedding food could be!), their service was fantastic and they were extremely organized and easy to work with. We used the Farm to Table menu which I highly recommend. My friends and family are still talking about their grilled artichokes. I worked with Wendy the most, who was extremely sweet and so professional -- her and the rest of the 5 Star Staff made my life so easy on the day of the wedding and even before -- they worked with the furniture rental company to take care of almost everything and things appeared before the wedding and disappeared after it before my eyes. Thank you for everything, Wendy and 5 Star! You are fantastic!

  • We were so happy we went with Five Star for our Memory Garden wedding in Monterey. From the very beginning, when we requested a quote from them, they were responsive and professional, and offered us a free tasting. From there we were sold! The food was great—I definitely recommend the Corralitos sausages (the highlight of our cocktail hour, praised by guests) as well as the potatoes au gratin (literally the best I've ever had, also praised by our guests). Tri-tip was another great highlight. Another great thing about Five Star is that they will handle rentals for you in your contract! This was especially helpful to me as I was getting married in a state park where i had to bring in EVERYTHING, from the chairs and tables to the dance floor and everything in between. It was so nice having a caterer who would handle food, furniture, linens, and bartending (we could provide our own alcohol which was awesome). On the day of my event, everything ran so smoothly! I was able to really ... Read more

  • This company really knows how to service a wedding! They go above and beyond to not only cook the food, but decorate and WOW your guests! They took the time to learn a complicated fold for our napkins and linens to accommodate our theme. They spent hours of their time on the phone and in person walking through each detail. They had the nicest staff! Super professional! They gave us loads of leftover food and preserved it perfectly for us to take home with ease. They offered their services of handling other rentals. You definitely get what you pay for here!!! All star company that needs to change the name of the company to a higher star count! Five star was the highlight of my wedding. Many guests did approach me (The Groom) after the wedding, telling how good the food was. This was our amazing Menu!

  • I am an event planner and I tried Laura's food during one of our events and I was amazed by how delicious it was. I also loved how organized the service was, it was smooth, professional and well managed. From now on Five Star Catering is my number 1 caterer to recommend to my dear clients. I had a wedding in Los Gatos planned and setup for my clients and Five Star Catering was again my number 1 choice. Laura worked with our event themes Masquerade, she added many decor touches as fresh flowers, glass raisers, vases with fillers and a rustic and floral wedding theme, tasteful theme decor and food presentations are amazing! We worked together so well! In any party food and guest service are very important and they are amazing in Five Star Catering!!!

  • Five Star catered our wedding at the Memory Garden in Monterey a few weeks ago, and everything was amazing from start to finish! We initially liked that Five Star offered us a tasting before we signed a contract with them (the other preferred caterers for our venue would only let us do tastings if we booked them first, which was confusing to me... I wouldn't want book a caterer without trying their food!), and everything at the tasting impressed us. Laura was great to work with, incredibly responsive and accommodating of a variety of guest allergies and preferences. So many people told us that the food was delicious, especially the ceviche, potatoes au gratin, and tri tip. The buffet and tables were also beautifully presented. Working with Five Star was a dream, and we'd enthusiastically recommend them to anyone for any event!

  • Working with 5 Star Catering could not have been better.! They are extremely professional, helpful and knowledgeable. Both the rehearsal dinner and wedding luncheon were beautifully presented and well- staffed. Many guests commented on the delicious food. We could not have been happier with 5 Star Catering, and would highly recommend them for any future events. They are simply "the best" in the Capitola, Santa Cruz, Monterey area!

  • Five Star catered my daughters wedding at Roaring Camp - a difficult venue as there is no kitchen. They were incredible - I would give them 10 stars if I could. Delicious food and impeccable service. Although they were on the high side price wise, they were well worth it! Everyone raved about the food, even the vegetables which are hard to do with a buffet.

  • Laura did a great job running the catering. She provided a lot of suggestions in the early planning phase of the wedding. It was an unusual rainy wedding in california and Laura was extremely helpful in our tent renting process. On the day, her team is very professional and everything was executed perfectly. They also cleaned up the the venue really well in the end. Perfect wedding catering provider.

  • I worked with Laura getting our menu set and selecting our place settings, glassware and linens. The things that attracted us to Five Star first was that they are a one stop shop for everything. I did not need to have a million vendors for flatware, linens, tables, bartender, and food. I was able to get everything that I needed in one place. Laura was very sweet and knowledgeable. She was incredibly helpful with all of her recommendations. We told her we were embracing the fact that we were having a winter wedding and wanted cozy comfort foods. So our menu reflected that with crispy chicken, tomato soup shooters and a hot chocolate bar with homemade marshmallows. Laura set up our walk-through and put our minds at ease with everything. All of our guests could not stop raving about how good the food was. Several of our friends said that it was the best wedding food they had ever had.

  • The menu choices were varied. Accommodating to food allergies, and guest needs- gluten free, vegan options. I like that we were able to get a package deal for the rehearsal dinner, yet the menus were very different. Delicious and generous food, beautifully presented. Staff on hand was professional, efficient, friendly and flexible.

  • Fivestar catering did an awesome job with our wedding at Monarch Cove Inn. I enjoyed working with Wendy & Laura who were very responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. Additionally, we received numerous compliments on the food & the service. The team took care of everything related to rentals, set up, and we didn't have to worry about all the small details. I would highly recommend.
