  • We had the pleasure of working with Personal Touch Dining for our wedding back in January 2020. My wife and I were highly impressed with the tasting, professionalism and well rounded quality of the business. Most importantly the menu and tasting was amazing. We had roughly 160 people attend our wedding and we received rave reviews from our friends and family members regarding all of the courses we ordered. The short rib was fantastic and we are so happy we decided to work with this vendor. Thank you Personal Touch! Adam & Brittany

  • My daughter Rachel and new son-in-law Andrew choose Personal Touch Dining from their 'one and only' tasting as they loved the food and delivery. My daughter has discriminating taste and has since she was a child. We also had 2 Executive Chefs as guests and they concurred!! I volunteered to write this review due to my satisfaction as a parent. I was not involved with the selections, but borrowed the menu for printing. We used the menu from the tasting to make our own for the guests which included appetizers through the desserts. It was a nice touch to the dinner table. Instead of cake, the newlyweds did desserts. The chocolate and white cake pops were divine and the churro stand a hit! They also chose a full bar which was beyond affordable. Brittany was their go-to for catering. The staff we so professional and took care of everything! Because it was flawless all that was required of me was to have a good time and that I did. Norma K, Mother-of-the-Bride

  • I felt confident every step of the way that Personal Touch Dining had every detail covered and that they would take care of everything. We had a last minute change of venue just three weeks before the wedding and Personal Touch came out at a moment's notice to survey the new space and redesign the tables. We had to change so many details last minute, but they were professional and understanding every step of the way.

She was amazingly responsive, prompt And flexible when we had last minute changes to meals (e.g adding vegan/vegetarian. In addition our tasting was so wonderful and it was hard to make a decision about which food to choose. Everyone raved about how delicious everything was can’t recommend them enough!

  • I cannot say enough about Personal Touch Dining! They were a dream to work with for our wedding at Scripps Seaside Forum. They really treated us so well during the entire process They responded to my every request in the planning process, they made our tasting very romantic and special, and their staff was incredible on the day of our wedding. We didn't have a planner, and they were such an asset! The food was really delicious (we went with the taco bar!) and they have a really great selection! They made our cake and I got multiple compliments about it from guests afterwards.

  • This company is truly incredible when it comes to making the wedding of your dreams come true. The Harbor View lofts in San Diego was an ideal venue with panoramic views of the city, marina, and harbor. The food they provided was top notch and the tables decorated magnificently. Like pieces of a puzzle, everything came together perfectly.

  • Kendra Addis and Darcie Vargas were AMAZING. We had a very limited time frame to do a ton of work. The Personal Touch team was always pleasant positive and we're on top of everything. We could not have had a better experience. They thought of everything, had options and kept us organized. AWESOME!

  • Personal Touch Dining did a wonderful job with our wedding catering from start to finish. We requested proposals from 3-5 companies during our initial search and Personal Touch first impressed us with their affordability which was very important to us. Sometimes affordability can translate into lower quality for service/taste/etc. but such is NOT the case with PTD. From my initial email their sales representative was extremely responsive, curteous, and helpful. She tweaked our proposal multiple times so I could get a feel for the costs and what to expect before our tasting which I really appreciated. Our tasting went beautifully and everything tasted great! As we got closer to our day we worked with another staff member named Brittany and she was an absolute joy. So sweet, very responsive as well, and had great energy when we met in person. Everything tasted and looked great on the day of our wedding. At the end of the night we were ready to leave and one of their staff asked if we'd l... Read more

  • Personal touch is exactly who you should hire for next event/wedding! Our tasting with them for our wedding was so nice- they made us feel so important. When our actual wedding day got here at Orfila Winery all of our guests couldn't stop talking about how amazing the food was. The cornbread chicken is to die for. We wouldn't change a thing! They provided passed wine after our ceremony, champagne pour for our speeches and the buffet was piping hot. We highly suggest!

    Hi Cortney, It was an absolute pleasure to be part of your event! We're thrilled your special day was everything you dreamed of. Wishing you all the best, Lauren at Personal Touch Dining

  • Personal Touch Dining was amazing! From the beginning the staff was wonderful to work with and answered all of our questions regarding their menu and service. They had so many options to choose from and when it came down to the delicious food our mouths just exploded from the yummy goodness. Our menu tasting was professional and presented to us just as it would be presented to our guests. They were even accommodating to me and a few guests who had food allergies. They made sure we had the proper table set up for our guests & our venue and even helped make a few changes when our guest count changed. It was amazing having a caterer who also provided tables, chairs and linens as that was one less thing I had to do and worry about. It was a one stop shop and every bride can appreciate that. For our food we had a sit down dinner and our horderves were crab cakes, bbq pizza, and beef wellington. For our dinner we had roasted beet & mandarin salad and then filet mignon or white sea bass pan s... Read more

  • From my first email to Personal Touch to the day of my wedding, Personal Touch was attentive, professional, and prompt. I have been to numerous weddings where I was served rubbery chicken or tough steak. Personal Touch has completely changed my perception as to what wedding food could and should be. I cannot thank them enough for all of their hard work. They made my wedding day a memorable one.

  • Personal Touch Dining operates Mt Woodson Castle, Leo Carillo Ranch, and several other wedding venues near San Diego. My wife and I originally called them to inquire about Leo Carillo Ranch; the ranch was not available on our wedding date, but Mt Woodson Castle was and so we went to check it out. It took all of a few minutes for us to realize that it was the venue for us, and shortly thereafter we entered into business with Personal Touch Dining. The package that Personal Touch Dining provided includes access to the venue, catering, and coordination (pre-wedding and day-of.) Many of our guests described Mt Woodson Castle as "magical;" many of our guests told us that the food was the best they'd ever had at a wedding; my wife and I feel the same way. I'm not really sure what else needs to be said on these fronts. We loved the inclusion of wedding coordination with our package. Iman was the coordinator who handled most of our pre-event planning. I loved her communication style: ... Read more

  • Beautiful presentation on tables and food. The staff are quick to reply to emails. The food at the tasting was amazing. Day of the appetizers were to die for, yet they very much over cooked the food. (medium-rare top sirloin came out very well done and pistachio crusted mahi mahi very dry). The contract estimate and final cost had a few minor discrepancies, which did raise the overall total by over a thousand dollars and should have been more transparent. Overall I'm happy with the experience.

  • Personal Touch was one of the approved caterers at Darlington House. We were really pleased with their menu and value. We wanted to do some custom items - drinks, side dishes, etc and they were totally accommodating. The food was also delicious.
