  • My fiancé and I have been working with Melrose Catering for the past year in planning both our rehearsal dinner and wedding. It has proven to be a great advantage to have the catering and rentals connected. Stephen of Melrose Catering and Carlos of A Rental Connection are truly exceptional to work with – they are helpful, patient, kind, enthusiastic, flexible and knowledgeable. We are so thankful for their guidance and for their detail-oriented, timely communication. Our Melrose Catering tasting was also an amazing experience – all of the dishes were so delicious and beautifully prepared that it made it difficult to choose, but we are confident that all of 180 guests will be thrilled. The chef is remarkable. We look forward to continuing to work together through our wedding weekend in Spring 2021!

  • Melrose Catering is amazing to work with. They respond to emails immediately & made us feel comfortable. They are affordable, accommodating, and have years of experience with catering events. I would recommend to anyone interested in looking for a caterer.

  • The nice thing about using Melrose Catering is that you do all the rentals through them as well. We served salmon & chicken & they also have a vegan option that we served as well. The food was good & the table set up was really nice.

  • I would definitely recommend Melrose Catering!! Laura and Melrose catering were all very professional at our wedding anniversary reception. Since Laura made sure that everything prior to the event was take care of even the ice for the bar, I was stressed-free on our day.. The staff always made sure the tables were clean and cleared never saw a dirty plate, they were almost like ninjas lol!

  • Melrose Catering was an awesome choice for our wedding! We worked with Laura  for our April 2016 wedding. From the start she was great! Our tasting was fabulous and she was just super fun to be around - she really made it a great experience which was part of why we chose them! The food at the tasting was delicious! My husband and i stuffed our faces! It was all so good! We got married at a location that didn't have a kitchen so I was a little worried about how all the food would transfer and taste the day of. It was just as good as I remembered!! We had so many compliments on it and that it was hot!! Not cold like most weddings! Working with Laura and Melrose Catering was great! They were super easy and accommodating. We really appreciate it and would highly recommend them to anyone!

  • Melrose was great! After the wedding I heard from guests about how great the food was. The price was extremely reasonable, and all the staff were super friendly and professional. I also loved the detail that they ensured the bride and groom were served first and had a chance to eat, before it became impossible for us to do so. Thank you Laura!!

  • Melrose Catering provided such an amazing service! Laura was so easy to work with and responsive to our every need. Our wedding would not have been the same without Melrose Catering. I received so many compliments on the food and all staff was amazing and attentive. I highly recommend Melrose Carering if you're looking for good prices and exceptional services!

  • I absolutely loved Laura!!! She's the coordinator for the catering company and owner as well. I can't say enough good things about her because the list is long!! She is so detailed and organized about her work n delivers with her team nothing but the best I think food and presentation is everything at a wedding and everyone loved the food! The servers are so professional And organized, they execute with elegance and professionalism. I would say if you are looking for good tasting food, but also elegance and poise Melrose Catering is it. Also, my venue had a limited amount of space and had never had a sit down dinner event Only buffet, but Melrose worked their magic and were able to deliver even under the limited space so thank you for that Laura!

  • Melrose Catering catered our wedding and we couldn’t have made a better choice! We wanted a casual fun affair with food to remember. That is exactly what Melrose delivered. Everything was up front and honest. From the very beginning, Laura (manages the business/planning aspect) was responsive and an ease to work with. She was never more than an email or phone call away, always ready to listen, give suggestions/ideas, and most importantly to make.things.happen! She was very accommodating to any ideas and changes. Nour (Chef) created a delectable meal that our guests still rave about. Post wedding, upon seeing friends and family, the first thing they complimented on was “THE FOOD!”. Guests have commented on every single flavor down to the seasonings on the vegetables and savory sauces on the meats. It’s quite a badge of honor when your guests are posting pictures of your wedding from your dress to your hor’dourves on social media. In addition, Melrose staff was professional and... Read more

  • Laura was wonderful to work with, and her team served our guests a feast to remember. Let's start with what it's like to work with Laura and the Melrose team: Laura is warm, easy-going, and clearly knows her stuff. In addition to hiring Melrose to cater our wedding, we hired Laura as our day-of coordinator. She took care of everything--coordinating the vendors, knowing where every little thing should go, knowing when to cue what music and what relatives. And the food: Months after our wedding, our friends are reminding us how delicious and memorable the food was. We served a Moroccan menu, family style. It was fun, flavorful, healthy, varied, beautifully presented, and delicious. Laura worked within our budget, and we couldn't have been happier.

  • Worst company ever!!!! Zero compassion or understanding! Avoid them at all cost. .... Long story short ... I was notified by my original venue that they encountered issues with venue and that I would need to find a new venue. This happened about 3wks before my wedding! I notified Melrose Catering via email and phone call to see if they could help! I was hoping they would consider refunding me my deposit or at least a partial refund to help offset the extra charges I was going to incur, but this favor fell on deaf ears! As they couldn’t even return my calls or emails. We ended up booking with the University Club of Pasadena which has their own in house catering. I would understand if I cancelled for no reason or decided to use a different catering company/vendor. I had no choice as I had about 3weeks to figure things out and book a new venue. I even asked to talk to the owner and my emails and phone calls went unanswered and unreturned. I understand they are business but they had tw... Read more

    We were very sorry to hear that your venue let you down. We make every effort to make event planning an enjoyable experience for all of our clients As you know our original plan was to cater your wedding at the venue in Pasadena. You signed the contract and paid our deposit. After that we tried to contact you in order to set up a site-visit at the venue. We had not received a response despite several phone calls and emails from our office team. Finally it was brought to our attention that you would be unable to have your wedding there. The venue itself did not file the required permits with the City of Pasadena to host an event. After hearing this unfortunate news, we made numerous attempts to contact you for direction regarding how you wanted to proceed. We certainly would have been happy to serve your guests at any venue had this been communicated to us. On October the 10th (9 days prior to your event) your coordinator (who we had no prior communication with at this point) finally contacted us to say our services were no longer needed. You had found a new venue – but unfortunately you had to use their in-house catering. Yes we are an independent family business. However all catering companies must have basic contracts and deposits to protect themselves from financial loss in the event of last-minute cancellations. Please consider that by the time your new coordinator attempted to default on your contract via cancellation, we had already purchased the food and supplies required for your event. With little over a week to go, your wedding had been fully planned and staffed as well. And we turned down another 200+ guest event since we thought this date was fully booked. We absolutely sympathize with the horrible situation your venue left you to deal with due to their own negligence. And we hope the venue compensated you accordingly. We sincerely hope your wedding day was a wonderful experience. And we regret not being able to be a part of your family’s special day.

  • My husband and I were looking for a catering company we could use for our wedding. We found Melrose Catering on Yelp and we are SO thankful we chose them. We reached out to Laura and set up a tasting appointment. They were responsive and we were able to find a time that worked with all of our schedules. We tried 6-7 hors d'oeuvres, two main entrees, bread, and salad as part of our tasting. They were all so delicious it was tough choosing which ones we wanted at our wedding. We ended up getting the bruschetta and chicken empanadas for our tray-passed hors d'oeuvres and the short rib & salmon for our main entrees. All of our wedding guests only had positive things to say about the food! We are so thankful we chose Melrose because we definitely wanted to have delicious and memorable food at our wedding and Melrose was able to do just that :) Not to mention, Laura worked hand in hand with our rental company to ensure we had all of the rentals we needed. This relieved stress on our part... Read more
