  • Personal Touch catered our wedding at Mt Woodson Castle. Everything was delicious. Appetizers we had: Tomato basil bisque shooters with grilled asiago cheese point Brie and fig jam crostinis Coconut shrimp with mango purée Salad: Field greens Main: Tri tip (the best) Chicken caprese Sides: Trio of pastas (great option for vegetarians. they set out both marinara and cream sauce. my dad claims it's the best marinara sauce he's had in his entire life) Garlic and chive whipped Yukon gold potatoes We opted for the buffet style. Everything was delicious, warm, and people loved going back for seconds. If there were any issues, I never knew about it because everything went smoothly. Strongly recommend them for your future event catering needs!

  • Personal Touch Dining was our caterer of choice at our wedding on 10/15/16 @ The New Children's Museum. Their service and food was incredible. We opted for 3 food stations: Short Ribs, Chicken and Waffles, and Shrimp & Grits & even got a sundae bar and our guests really enjoyed the food. We got tons of compliments throughout the night. They were also able to easily accommodate 2 vegetarians meals and 1 allergen-free meal without a hassle. PTD even made sure we had food at our sweetheart table and packed up the leftovers to take with us! I highly recommend them, you won't be disappointed!

  • We had such an amazing experience with Personal Touch Dining for our wedding on 8/27/16. We used them for our wedding at Leo Carrillo Ranch and could not be happier. We worked with Leah and she was super responsive and helpful throughout the whole process. Nikka was also there to coordinate day of and was amazing! The packages they offer are super affordable and such a great value, it takes so much of the wedding stress off by being able to have them cover rentals/catering/coordinating/decorating. The food is also SO good and we had guests raving about it (we did a Mexican buffet). The bar package is also a killer deal and the bartenders we had at our wedding were great. We are so happy that Personal Touch Dining manages Leo Carrillo ranch, and we are incredibly happy to have had them make our wedding so awesome!

  • Personal Touch Dining was the first and only caterer we looked at for our wedding at the La Jolla Woman's Club. They were very responsive from the beginning and continued to blow us away as time passed. They set up a wonderful tasting, which felt very much like a private dinner. They had a lot for us to choose from both for food options and rentals and they provided great insight. The food was incredible, both at the tasting and the wedding itself. We even went with the ice cream sundae bar which our guests loved! The staff at our wedding were outstanding, they were very welcoming and attentive to us and our guests all night long. Personal Touch Dining was wonderful to work with throughout the whole planning process. They were very prompt in their responses and were very well organized. It was so nice to know that on our wedding day everything was taken care of and we had nothing to worry about.

  • I knew the minute that I walked through the door of Personal Touch Dining by the warm welcome that I was going to like this company. The staff was very helpful and the food was great. It's also a one stop shop. Personal Touch dining can help with more that just catering. Always very helpful when answering email questions and phone calls. We had Personal Touch Dining for my son's wedding this summer (2016) They took care of everything. Very professional and efficient. I would highly recommend this company for any of your catering needs. I was very happy with everything about Personal Touch Dining.

  • The food served at my wedding was amazing. Everyone raved about it. It was so good we had almost no leftovers packed up and sent home with us. We ordered the salmon and tri-tip as our entrees, strawberry salad as our salad, parmesan-roasted vegetables as our side dish, and mini fish tacos, black bean and quinoa sliders and baked brie as our hors d' oeuvres. Our tasting was also amazing and conducted very professionally. We were offered wine and beverages of our choice, served large portions of everything, and even given chocolate chip cookies to take home.

  • Personal Touch did an amazing job catering our wedding! Lauren and Danai were extremely friendly and responsive to our emails and requests leading up to our wedding event. The guests loved the appetizers and the buffet-style dinner entrees. Some of my friends told me they had even gone up for seconds! The staff was also fantastic, nice, and accommodating. We highly recommend Personal Touch Dining for affordable and delicious catering!

  • For my daughter's wedding for 125 people: The food is amazing! The service, the staff, including office staff were all beyond helpful and treated us as important as any bride (and her Mom) planning her wedding hopes to feel about something so important. From my first phone call to inquire about services and a quote to the day of, I can't say enough of how well they executed everything. High quality, reasonably priced, have many options for linen color and event decor.

  • PTD is the best caterer we have ever dealt with. Lauren, the manager is sweet, engaging, warm and quick to respond to any questions, comments or concerns. When we went for our tasting and were thoroughly impressed with everything, from the selection of colors, to the china and glassware. It was beautiful, they set it up just as it would be for our day. And then came the food....Sheer amazement. The flavors, the seasoning the, tenderness of the meat, all of it was perfect! I can't wait to experience the food again on our wedding day!

  • Personal Touch Dining went above and beyond our expectations. Definitely the most delightful food at a wedding we and many others had ever experienced. Bride and Groom were able to sample the meals prior to our big day, which was so fun and absolutely scrumptious. It was seriously some of the most delicious food we've had the pleasure of eating. Our guests ranted and raved about how tasteful the meals were and wished they could have experienced the skillful quality & flavor in their own day to day lives. The best part for bride & groom is that even though you may be caught up in the guests, no need to worry... left overs go to you before the honeymoon. Yummy yummy yummy! Thank you again to all the lovely staff and helping hands; you really are amazing at what you do :) Having PTD a part of your day is absolutely recommended and you won't be disappointed!!!

  • Lauren, Samantha, Iman & the rest of the staff at Personal Touch Dining were absolutely wonderful in catering our wedding at the Ultimate Skybox in April 2015!! They had incredible attention to detail and were more than happy to make changes to our catering and rentals throughout the entire process. The food was beyond our wildest expectations and guests could not stop raving about it (even after the wedding had ended)! We even had a vegan guest and she was thrilled with the vegan creation. The serving/bartending staff at the event were all professional and courteous. Most impressively, every single table had multiple check-backs (to ensure guests were satisfied and didn't need any modifications to their meals). We had a wedding for 75 people and met their food/beverage & labor minimums with no problem. While Personal Touch may not be the cheapest caterer in San Diego, their VALUE (excellent service, attention to detail, and delicious food) simply cannot be beat.

  • The food was delicious and just as good at the wedding as it was at the tasting. We loved that we could have four people at our wedding tasting so our moms could enjoy the tasting as well. They provided bar services for cost which was a huge savings compared to other groups. They had an exclusive contract with our vendor and we are glad they were so good given we didn't have another choice. I'd choose them again for another event if we lived in the San Diego area though.

  • We wanted to do a taco bar at our wedding and PTD worked with us to create the perfect menu. They were very responsive, open to customizing the menu and worth the price for a full service caterer. The food and presentation looked amazing at our wedding. I would highly recommend them!
