  • Tamara was the caterer for my daughter's wedding. She is a very sweet person and extremely easy to talk to. We planned a destination wedding in Santa Barbara and Tamara was a huge part of my daughter's wonderful wedding reception. The food was delicious, the service was outstanding. She thought of everything. She worked with the other vendors for the wedding which really helped us a lot. I highly recommend her! She was wonderful to work with.

  • Tamara Catered a 250 person Event for the Artists Guild of the Santa Ynez Valley at our Annual QuickDraw Event in August of 2013. She was well prepared for the event and was prompt and efficient. Her food was well presented and people had nothing but positive comments on the variety of appetizers served. Everything was tasty and the service was professional and friendly.

  • I wrote a review before but not sure where it went, but I have no problem with re-writing one, because Tamara is the most awesome person EVER!!! She made our wedding possible. She worked with us on our budget, did not scoff at our request for a vegetarian menu, had no problem with traveling to our venue, and coordinated so many other services for us (she helped us with hiring the rentals, hooked us up with lighting and flooring vendor, even someone to help us with a generator!). Not to mention her food is delicious. Our guests ate everything and raved about the food. There was no complaining about the lack of meat for the meat lovers either (my brother-in-law didn't even notice the lack of meat, and he is basically a carnivore!) We also hired her for our brunch the next day and it was delish! Tamara is a wonderful resource because she is from the area we got married in so she was familiar with who is best. And us being from LA really utilized her knowledge. Not to mention how much ... Read more

  • Tamara Catering was absolutely perfect. At short notice, she and her team were able to accommodate our needs. The food was fantastic and her crew was incredibly professional. They went beyond food service and helped with all the cleanup. Plus, her prices were very reasonable. I will absolutely hire Tamara for all our future events.

  • Tamera's Catering was a goldmine! My Husband and I planned a destination wedding in Santa Barbara. From the first conversation I had with Tamera I "clicked" with her. She was exactly the type of caterer I was desiring. She was professional and fun to work with. She went the extra mile by searching out wines that complimented our dinner and champagne that was pleasing to all palates. The meal she prepared was incredible, and filled with such flavor....our guests are still raving about it. Tamera provided such amazing service to our small intimate reception at the Montecito Inn. Her whole staff was so pleasant and Tamera added special touches like placing a beautiful purple pansy (our accent color) on each individual plate and even gave my best friend and I a bottle of Champagne as a gift to us when I popped by her kitchen to meet her and put a face to the voice. We couldn't have been more pleased with our reception dinner, it was better than we had imagined it to be. Tamera's Catering l... Read more

  • Tamara and her staff were extremely helpful! I was the maid of honor & on a budget for my friends bridal shower. Tamara really went out of her way to help me with ideas and even went as far as recommending delicious truffles as a favor. I could not have been more happy with the way everything turned out & her food was amazing! I Will definitely reccomend her to all of my friends!

  • Tamara's Catering was a pleasure to have on our wedding day. My husband and I were college students at the time and were unsure if we could afford catering, but Tamara was a joy and never felt like she was out to make a buck on us. Let me just say that the food was AMAZING! I didn't even get to have seconds because all my guests beat me to it. When we talk about that day we always say how great the food was and the service. The staff were the most friendliest and helpful people I have ever met. I highly recommend Tamara's catering!!!! P.S try the roasted tri-tip with a garlic pepper rub. My husband does not eat beef, but he loved it!!!
