  • Tamara saved the day for our event! We were stuck with only 24 hours before a farewell party and our original caterer fell through, we reached out to her mostly expecting her to not be able to deliver, and oh how she delivered! She not only met up with one of our party planners to drop off the meat and cheese platter we ordered, but she also gave us tools and extras to replenish the already lovely platter. All with 24 hours notice. I would use her again in a minute! Lovely service, delicious food, and top notch communication! Thank you so much for saving the day!

  • Tamara and her crew really went above and beyond for our wedding reception. The food was enjoyed by all, the staff very friendly and absolutely ready for anything. Tamara literally saved us thousands of dollars on our wedding with cost saving ideas, knowing the best places for needed rentals and such. Thanks Tamara!

  • I have used Tamara's Catering several times throughout the years for corporate events as well as private events with a range of guests from small intimate dinners to company events. Her staff has always been professional and courteous. Each time she has exceeded my expectations and provided impeccable food and service. With each event regardless of the size, I am always confident with Tamara’s efficient team. I highly recommend her services and look forward to booking her for my upcoming wedding!

  • Tamara and her servers were all fantastic! They gave us exactly what we wanted and all of our friends loved the food and had many compliments. We wanted a small group of friends to get together to say good-bye to Santa Barbara and it was perfect all the way around. They left the kitchen in better condition than they started with and my friend was very complimentary of this detail. I would use her again and hope to do so in the future for another get together when visiting Santa Barbara. It's nice to not have to worry about the details and just enjoy our friends for an afternoon.

  • Tamara is awesome. We didn't have a wedding day coordinator, and Tamara ended up taking charge at our reception. She made decisions and knew how to make our food, food presentation, and setup look so nice! We are so thankful for her knowledge and expertise. She thought of everything!

  • Tamara was really nice to work with because her food is delicious and she’s very creative and organized in her presentation of the food. It looks delicious, smells delicious, and tastes delicious. Our menu consisted of brunch food (eggs benedict station, French toast station, vegetable frittata, salmon carving station, ham carving station, fresh salads, delicious fruit, and pastries). She was very excited to be doing a brunch menu because she said she likes to try new recipes and new menu arrangements. She was very understanding and patient with us when we accidentally sent her a payment late. She was also responsive and eager to work with us because she reached out to us. She’s a very creative chef and has been in the business a long time- it shows in how committed she is to her work and she is proud to serve a tasty and pretty much perfect product. Her staff is professional and excellent, also!

  • Tamara and her crew were so amazing. We wanted a family style meal for our wedding reception and all other caterers were going to charge us an insane amount just because of that. Tamara was so willing to work with us and make sure we got everything we wanted. We did family style tacos, a chips and salsa bar, and passed ceviche. She provided a bartender and also managed the rentals (tables, chairs, glassware, etc.). Because of her and her team, my husband and I had nothing to worry about at the wedding and were so pleased with the result. The food tasted amazing! We can't thank Tamara enough!
