  • 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

  • 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

  • We wanted our wedding to be casual and more of a party than a dinner. We chose 4 pass around apps for cocktail hour and a buffet dinner with a hot fudge sundae bar in lieu of cake. We loved working with Personal Touch. They were accommodating to our needs and budget. We loved the tasting at the PT office, we tried many delicious options and they even boxed up the left overs to send home with us. The set up at our wedding was clean, presentable, and nicely decorated. Our guests loved the food.

  • We used Personal Touch Dining to cater our wedding at The Garty Pavilion. They were absolutely fabulous! From our first tasting all the way up to the final details, they were awesome to work with! Not only is the food BOMB.COM, but they know what they are doing when it comes to catering an event! You can feel at ease knowing they have things under control. I had the pleasure of working mainly with Annalisa for the past year. I cannot say enough good things about her! She truly loves what she does and it shows. She was so helpful throughout the entire year and always responded quickly to my emails. She was very organized and I was shocked at our final meeting that she had been keeping track of every detail (decided or undecided) I had mentioned to her via email. Day of the wedding, the entire staff looked and acted extremely professional. The buffet & bar all looked so well put together and everything ran smoothly. My husband and I especially appreciated the lead staff member (s... 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.

  • We had a great experience with PTD. Food was definitely better than we have had at most weddings we have attended. Tasting was extremely well executed and convinced us to go with them. Service on our wedding day was impeccable...multiple servers went out of their way to get us drinks, keep a tray of appetizers for us, etc. Bartenders were professional and quick. We have nothing but the highest praise for Personal Touch...catering by nature is very expensive, but we got everything we needed through PTD and at relatively reasonable prices. Would definitely recommend them to anyone considering booking.
