  • We used Tamara to cater our rehearsal dinner at Deep Sea Tasting Room. She was incredibly easy to work with and offered tons of awesome ideas to help make the menu special. We decided to go with a Boston themed dinner, since my finance is from there. She pulled off an incredibly meal of clam chowder, lobster rolls, truffle Mac n cheese, and more. She was open to exploring new recipes and preparations based on my requests and everything came out AMAZING! We received so many compliments. She also was able to provide all the rentals we needed to for the table, decor, etc. If you’re looking for a caterer to be a “one stop shop”, Tamara is the BEST! I can’t thank her enough for making our event easy to plan, well executed, and most of all, delicious!

  • Tamara and her team were amazing to work with for our Annual Student Awards Reception, which hosted around 300 guests. She was responsive to our staff during the planning process, and worked with us to create a menu that perfectly fit our theme, needs, and budget. During the event, she and her staff were friendly and professional at all times, enhancing the experience for all who attended. We will definitely want to work with them again!

  • Our nonprofit organization searched for different vendors and finally found Tamara, who was so easy to work with since day one. She was very flexible on what we wanted and worked with us on great pricing. Tamara and her team were so great before and during the reception. Everyone enjoyed the appetizers, and once the event was over she made plates for our volunteers, staff and band members. We were just so happy to have chosen Tamara to make this event successful. I would recommend her for all events, she was so easy to work with, flexible, very responsive, professional and great pricing! Thank you Tamara!!

  • Tamara was amazing! We had our wedding at a ranch in Buellton and she helped make the day special. She helped me with rentals beforehand and was always available for questions. She took pride in her work and the food was amazing. We wanted classy BBQ and that's what we got. The presentation of the food was beautifully done. Our guests talked about how great the food was and that rarely happens with wedding food. We purchased beer and wine but she did all the bar prep and the servers were great. We highely recommend her!

  • We used Tamaras Catering for our Santa Barbara wedding this past October. Tamara and her team were absolutely fantastic to work with. The level of service provided was 5 star. Everyone on her team was so thoughtful, and went above and beyond to make sure that all of our guests (aprox 50ppl) were happy. The food was AMAZING, right on time and in a beautiful presentation. We can't speak highly enough of Tamara. Do yourself and all of your friends a favor and use Tamara and her team for your next event.

  • We booked Tamara's Catering for our wedding July 26th in Ojai and it was an incredible day and night! All of our guests loved the food! Tamara went above and beyond to make my day special. She went above and beyond to help me set up the day! Timelines, last minute errands (she helped me pick up some gluten-free desserts which I had forgotten to!!) Great communication and very organised. The waiters were incredible, and the bartender! Definitely will use Tamara and her team again in the future. Highly recommend!!! Thanks again! Thina and Tyson

  • I can't say enough how much I loved working with Tamara! She was so accommodating and extremely thorough! She made sure everything was exactly what I wanted, and would email me to make sure every detail went according to plan. The food was amazing! I'm a vegan and she made sure to provide food that I was able to enjoy as well as a delicious non vegan buffet for my guests. She was very well priced and her and her team made sure everything went smoothly during the reception. I would use her again for a party in a heartbeat!

  • We had a late cancelation from another caterer. Tamara was able to help us save the event in 4 days. Tamara was mega professional and delivered delicious food cooked on site. She also was flexible while adjusting the menu to a quote that was more in line with our tight budget

  • We used Tamara's Catering service for our wedding in Santa Barbara on 6.24.16. Tamara was the first catering service to get back to me when I began my initial selection process. She spoke with me over the phone and let me know what dinner options were available within our budget as well as passed appetizers. What I loved about Tamara's catering from the beginning is that she coordinated all the necessary linens and place settings through the rental company so I didn't have to. Her services also included (for a fee of course) bar setup and a bartender, Craig, her brother and right hand man who was SO helpful, arriving early the day of to help set up and oversee the preparation of the reception space in general. Craig worked for and with us at our reception from around 2pm until midnight until everything was taken down and out the door. He is a rockstar! Overall, the appetizers were great and dinner (lemon chicken, roasted veggies, a summer salad, and pasta salad) was good as well espec... Read more

  • Tamara provided great suggestions on a rustic dinner theme for my dinner party. I didn't want the traditional appetizers and she took the time to make sure I was happy. Staff was excellent in providing 5 star service to my family and friends. Her kitchen staff were very attentive to my needs and respected every inch of my personal space in my kitchen. We also wanted bar service and the bartender was awesome. Food was excellent and I will strongly recommend to my friends.
