  • Susan is absolutely amazing to work with and will keep you laughing! She was so responsive through the entire year of planning and was so fun! Their team was great with their flexibility with any changes to the menu. Their food was amazing and we got so many comments from our guests about how good the food was which most of them said isn't normal to have good wedding food! They were amazing!

  • Sue and Christina were great to work with. They were very responsive and helpful regarding not just the food but design elements as well. Trends does a fabulous job with creative presentation and everyone loved the food. They do a fabulous job working with the folks at Vine Hill House to make the whole wedding experience magical!

  • We tried several caterers and both sets of parents and we all unanimously picked Trends. The food tastes like it's cooked from the heart and it is. Susan is deeply involved in her business and it's very obvious how much she cares about what she's doing. Susan was fabulous to work with and very responsive. The food itself is incredible. I'm still dreaming about the Thai chili quesadilla appetizers we had passed around. The family-style service was also a big hit for everyone! Susan's staff were really on top of it - we never saw a line at the bar and the servers were thorough, efficient, and friendly. They also did a great job of checking in with me and making sure I was eating and had what I needed! At the end of the night, Susan sent us home with a little care package of leftover food, which was so thoughtful. It's that level of care and extra effort that really sold us on Trends to begin with. We all loved it so much, our family decided to use Trends to cater the rehearsal d... Read more

  • Where do I begin? With Susan: she is sweet, caring, hilarious, and an exceedingly hard worker to ensure that the food, service, and presentation at your special day is perfect. From my first contact with Trends to the tasting to selecting our menu and table settings, etc. to the big day, Susan and her staff were committed to flawless execution. Trends food is delicious (our guests raved about the fresh, seasonal flavors and beautiful presentation - family style was perfect!) and Susan and her staff were so professional and hard-working throughout the evening. I can’t say enough good things about the Trends food and vendor experience - you will be glad, again and again, that Susan and her staff are an integral part of your wedding team.

  • Susan at Trends is amazing! Beginning to end our experience with Trends was great. Susans menu is so flavorful and diverse, it's hard to narrow down! She's so flexible and patient, we had a few minor hiccups with family and she handled it without flaw! We chose a family style menu, so everyone could have some of everything, and it really made the wedding feel more homey. Everything was so flavorful and gorgeously plated! All the details are handled with love and it definitely shows through! Our caterer was really important to us, because people only seem to remember the food and dancing at weddings, and our guests definitely remember the food! The staff is all wonderful and really pay attention! We didn't have to do one thing, which on your big day means everything! We are so thankful to Trends for creating such a remarkable experience for us and our guests! We still get thank you's mentioning the food and drinks and are so so happy we went with Trends!

  • Susan was amazing! She knows the staff at Vine Hill House really well, which makes the process go really smoothly. She helped us to customize the menu for the wedding. Trends is unique in that they grill on site. The salmon and beef were perfectly cooked. We did family style serving, which was really convenient. All the food came out at the same time. The cheese table was beautifully set.

  • Susan is a rad caterer! I had already enjoyed a delicious meal of her's at a friend's wedding before booking her, so knew she would make lip-smacking food. But she also was an absolute joy to work with! She allowed us a full tasting prior to booking (it was like a full on huge meal!), and was so willing to work within our budget but was able to add in all the fun features we'd hoped for (late night sliders and her to-die-for brownie sundae). She has such a fun sense of humor and has a great partnership with so many venues in the area. She also manages coordinating all of the rentals (linens and flatware) do you don't have to worry about a thing the day of. Her team sets everything up as well! She treats her employees so well, it was clear she thinks of them as family - which is exactly how I'd hope our wedding would be hosted. She added fun details to the pre-ceremony drinks and went all out to make it feel like us! I couldn't recommend her more highly! I wish I had photos of the food ... Read more

  • Delicious food and amazing service!!! We used Trends Catering for our wedding on 4/30 and the food is amazing and people from the wedding are still telling us how delicious it was! It is SO satisfying to hear your guests had fun, but also loved the food. This will happen for you too if you choose Trends :) All the food was cooked on site at the venue and came out fresh and hot. We did family style and I can't tell you how many people told me they loved not having to choose between the amazing tri tip in a pinot noir reduction or my personal favorite, chicken breast grilled with pancetta and fig. There are too many amazing sides to choose from, but another personal favorite was the pesto pasta. This was a hit with EVERYONE! Vegetarians included :). Trends is a green caterer, with all the food being local coming from a 100 mile radius and everything is seasonal! This makes a huge difference in the taste of your food and something that is so important when choosing a caterer. Y... Read more

  • Based on a recommendation from the venue owner where I was holding an event, I talked with and ultimately hired Susan to cater both a rehearsal dinner for 80+ people followed by a welcome cocktail/dessert reception for an additional 170 guests. Great decision! Considering I live in Texas and my event was in Healdsburg, CA I needed to work with someone I felt I could communicate with long distance, have confidence in implementing my vision, as well as serve good food. Susan and her staff nailed it on all. I received many compliments on not only the food but the friendliness and professionalism of the servers and bartenders. She also handled all of the necessary rentals I had chosen ranging from tables and chairs to all of the linens, flatware, glassware and dishes. The night was a wonderful success and I was thrilled with the end result. Thank you Susan and Trends Catering!

  • No words can describe how amazing the service, food, and professionalism that Sue and Trends catering provide. We did not have any restrictions from our venue about who we could and couldn't use so we decided to seek out the best. After tasting her menu and meeting with Sue, it was an easy choice. During the whole process she was kind, supportive, easy to communicate with, and made our day special. We had a few unique requests from a combination of a Polish and Texan background and she made it work. We had steak for dinner and Pierogi as a late night snack. Not to mention that we had originally anticipated 150 people and all 200 we invited came! She was able to change all the linens, place settings, barware, food orders, etc within a week and it never even seemed like she broke a sweat. She catered an amazing cocktail hour, dinner, late-night snack and more during our wedding and we constantly had guests asking about who made the fantastic food. Finally, she provided wonderful bartende... Read more

  • I love Sue, she and Melanie are amazing!! The food was unreal and the presentation was beautiful! Our wedding was an overwhelming success and Sue played a huge roll in every aspect of our event. Her advice was right on on the menu, linens,time frames, table placement, DJ selection, ect, ect, ect. Sue and Melanie are pro's and they know what works! Their food is amazing and their service is second to none.

  • Perfect! Could not have been better! We used Trends Catering for our wedding back in May 2010. My wife and I consider ourselves to be "foodies" and love to eat out all of the time. So we wanted the food at our wedding to be amazing. We met with seven different caterers and ended up choosing Trends because (a) the food was great and (b) Susan is wonderful. She worked with us to craft a special menu that my wife and I designed ourselves. We were under a tight budget but still wanted amazing food (not an easy combination in the wine country) but Susan worked with us for weeks to perfect it. She would call us and say, "you guys can probably save some money here by doing this..." Most caterers would not do that. She even gave us a 2nd tasting so we could try the new dishes that we had dreamt up. And the best part... Trends is one of the few catering companies that will bbq the meat onsite if you want. A lot of the companies cook the food in their kitchens and then tran... Read more

  • Trends deserves a 6.0 on the review scale! Susan is absolutely amazing in her vision, her enthusiasm, her creativity and her ability to deliver such high quality, professional results. Frankly, I don't know how she does it. From the moment we met her, we were sold on her high energy and great ideas. She provided us with a full meal of all the foods she planned to serve. We thought it was great. That is, until the wedding date, when the food ratcheted up a notch to phenomenal. We are still receiving calls on how fabulous the food was and how great the presentation was, the set up was and how terrific the staff was. Sadly, we are the last of our friends to marry or else Trends would have full-time employment within our circle of family and friends. As a bride who just got to show up, I felt confident that Susan and her staff would have everything in order and they did. I was able to enjoy the day knowing everything would be perfect. If there were any disasters, and there weren... Read more

  • We had an excellent experience with Trends Catering and Susan, the owner. From the moment we first met Sue and tasted the Trends food we were impressed. It was a large step above the other tastings we had at Larry Vito and Park Avenue. We initially hired Trends based on the quality of the food and our positive impression of Susan. In addition to the food being excellent, we liked that they limit the number of events on each day so that Susan was actually there at our wedding. With some of the larger catering companies you meet with a salesperson and plan the wedding with that person, but they are not there the day of the wedding to execute the plan. It was great that after a year and a half of working with Sue that she was there the day of the wedding to make sure that everything went according to plan. We had a three course sit-down meal with a salad course, pasta course and entree of either hanger steak in a Cabernet reduction or sea bass. Considering the meal and the staff... Read more

  • Almost everyone at my wedding was head over heels for the food. It was so incredibly delicious and the staff is great. My husband and I were reluctant to spend so much on food (it is the biggest cost of any wedding!) because catering food is usually just mediocre. Sue's food is outstanding. We are giving four stars instead of five, because we thought the business side of the transaction could have gone a bit smoother. When we asked some in depth question about certain line items and how they were calculated, we got a bit of push back and frustration. Overall, the bit of headache we experienced was well worth it for the delicious food!!!
