  • Ramekins was the absolute best choice for our wedding venue. Throughout the whole planning process we had amazing people that were wonderful at communicating with us and making sure that our day was the best it could be. The food was AMAZING - which makes sense since it is a culinary school! Our guests were constantly commenting on how attentive and friendly the staff were. I could not have imagined getting married anywhere else.

  • Ramekins catered our wedding, and everything they provided was fantastic! From the passed hors d'oeuvres to the local cheese station to the cones of the best french fries ever, I consistently heard one thing from my guests - "This is the best wedding food EVER." The service was impeccable and professional, and communication was easy and prompt. I couldn't be happier with the value we received from the entire Ramekins experience, and highly recommend them for a wine country event!

  • Very friendly staff who accommodated our wishes, and helped guide us through the meal, linens, and table setting selection process. Our guests really enjoyed the cocktail hour service, family style dinner, and dessert/wedding cake buffet. The tables were set beautifully. The servers were pleasant to our guests and helped answer questions about diet restrictions. Everything was perfect!

  • The minute we walked in Ramekins Culinary School, Events & Inn, we fell in love with it. It had a very intimate, rustic, Italian village feel. We love all the decors and furniture in the property. You get to see the chefs in action as well. The room were we stayed is so well-appointed. Susan who helped as through the wedding process was very accommodating, knowledgeable and responsive to all our endless emails. She went above and beyond making sure we get what we want for our wedding. The food and service was superb. All our guests kept telling how good the food was... From passed hor d'oeuvres to dessert. It was first class! The servers were so courteous and friendly. Right after the ceremony, one server went out to give us own hor d'oeuvres plates while we were having pictures taken and then after the reception, we again have the dessert sampler plate he delivered to our room. The wine was flowing as well. Another surprise we got was a sweet note from them with a bag of gourmet ... Read more

  • WOW! Have received so many rave reviews about the food at my wedding and even from my a couple of guests who are professional chefs! We also hosted at Ramekins because of it being indoor/outdoors, close to Sonoma Square, and because of the flexibility they offered- everything we wanted to do for our wedding they could make work. I would highly recommend them for your wedding!

  • The food was amazing! Every single person mentioned something that they loved about it. I could not get enough of the Ahi tacos. Also, the staff was so attentive. They kept coming up to us to make sure we had what we needed, day of. In the weeks and months before Yvette & Ruby were very responsive. The tasting was one of the most fun days of the planning. I would recommend Ramekins highly to anyone planning any event. And next time we are in town, we plan to try a class. We love this place!

  • A foodie's dream caterer. Ramekins catered a family style meal at our wedding at Paradise Ridge Winery in Sonoma, and executed an outstanding meal that pleased even our toughest critics (including my husband)! All of our guests commented that the food was the best they've ever had at a wedding and that the presentation was just outstanding. To be honest, after our tasting, we booked Ramekins even before we found a venue. That's how impressed we were with our first impression! They do their job well! Yvette and Ruby were such a pleasure to work with. Responsive communication, flexible, accommodating, and detail oriented. They coordinated all of our rentals and made the process stress free for us to enjoy our big day. They are a little higher priced than other caterers in the area, but the quality of the food and their customer service more than make up for it. Highly recommend!

  • Ramekins Culinary School was the caterer for my daughters recent wedding in Sonoma. Susan, Kristen and Cameron were the people that we worked with and I cannot write enough positive thoughts about this caterer. We used the General's Daughter for our rehearsal dinner and Ramekins was our caterer, which was perfect for our 80 guests that came from around the world. We also used Ramekins as our caterer the next day at a Sonoma winery. The food was served family style, which I highly recommend. The hors' d hours were a treat to behold and would definitely recommend the beet salad. Their staff was professional at all times, and was so comforting that Susan was at both events, to make sure that everything was perfect…and it was. Cameron was constantly checking in with me as he was the banquet manager, to make sure everything was great. He even brought me out my own plate of their delicious beet salad. We had the choice between two caterers, and couldn't have been happier to have c... Read more

  • Ramekin's was fantastic to work with for our wedding day catering! The menu to select from was fantastic - abundant with plentiful of seasonal/local ingredients, which was what we were looking for. Being foodies, making sure that we felt extremely pleased with what we would be serving to our guests was a top priority! When we went to our tasting, Susan was very open & helpful in letting us tweak a few things when we were putting together our menu. We chose the Beef Short Rib, Ricotta Gnocchi & Herbed-Chicken for the main dishes - the Short Rib was definitely a fan fave. Our friends and family have still mentioned to us how great they thought the food was at our wedding. Would definitely recommend using Ramekin's for any catering opportunities!

  • So many wonderful things to say about Ramekins where my husband and I got married. The food was excellent, even better than our tasting - our guests raved about it. Great service - made our signature cocktails and passed them around along with champagne, wine was flowing, attention paid to allergies and dietary restrictions, speedy in getting the food out and refilling. The only thing that wasn't perfect was that we had guests staying in the rooms upstairs, and Ramekins was not very responsive in terms of getting their reservation and payment details, but not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things. We loved the small details / touches on the day of that put this place over the top - we were brought a plate of hors d'oeuvres and champagne immediately after the ceremony, we had a whiskey tasting bar that they set up indoors with the most adorable small glasses, and we given a cute bag with goodies from their shop at the end of the night. We also had brunch at The General's Daughter ne... Read more

  • Ramekins was a perfect wedding venue in Sonoma! We loved everything about the experience. The location is perfect with how close it is to the square. The venue itself is gorgeous and requires little extra decorations - we used all of their linens & furniture and just added flowers and a few personal touches. The food was absolutely amazing and our guests are still raving about it. At the last minute the weather was colder than expected and they helped us rent heaters and get everything set up to make sure our guests were comfortable the whole evening. The best part is that Ramekins takes care of everything - the food, the cake, the linens, the tables and the bar - you just need to bring in a DJ/band and flowers! We couldn't have asked for a better experience and definitely recommend Ramekins.

  • We used Ramekins for the catering for both our rehearsal dinner as well as our wedding. They were extremely flexible as we made changes along the way. While sometimes it did take a bit to get a response they were always willing to work with us to ensure we had the perfect day. The food was incredible and the staff so attentive it was amazing. They were always around to help and we loved their professionalism at the events. It really is incredible how they are able to have such great food prepared and served to a large group at a vineyard wedding with only the portable kitchen they bring. Our guests raved about the food. While obviously some things will go wrong during the wedding they did a great job.

  • Ramekins culinary school catered our wedding at Paradise Ridge Winery in August of 2016. We went with Ramekins because we felt that from all the caterers we spoke with (and there were many) we were getting the best value for our dollar and the food was delicious. The crew was great to work with and they even let us come back a second time when we weren't happy with one of our selections at our initial tasting. They were timely in letting us know when payments were due and staff were on hand the day of, introducing themselves and congratulating us. Everyone commented afterwards how tasty the food was and we were delighted to have a tray of appetizers waiting for us in the bridal room as we took a few minutes to relax. Thank you Ramekins!!!

  • We used Ramekins to cater our wedding in wine country in June 2015. We read reviews and weren't scared away by the price tag or the fact that there is no real "tasting" for their services (you only get to try 4 passed hors d'oeuvres, 1 starter and 3 mains). We were immensely disappointed by both the service and quality of this caterer. We were initially assigned to a contact person, but when she left for maternity leave and didn't return as we were told for our wedding date, it was clear that no one had responsibility for our event. The day of our event seemed disorganized and with the B team. We were assured over and over that it would take 20-30 mins to serve the main course for our 200 guests, but it took over an hour. Our beef filets were served at varying levels: should have been served medium rare, but they were all over the place with some overcooked. Many guests told us later how rude some of the bartenders were to them, and it was clear that some servers were very inexperienc... Read more
