They are saying it was great! Everything tasted so good and the risotto was simply delicious! We were very happy with your catering and your service. It is amazing how seamless it went and everything was so organized!  Thank you and all your staff from the cooks to the servers who where there early to set up and late to ensure service was stellar, we appreciate them all!!!

Paradise Catering catered my wedding at the Wind and Sea Estate in Big Sur, California. They were an impressive operation to say the least. I knew I was in good hands from the moment I met Nancy and Jon during two meetings prior to my wedding. They are very familiar with the Wind and Sea Estate, and even broke out their own hand­-drawn map to show me how they would lay everything out for my wedding. Their menu choices were limitless, which was especially reassuring given that we desired an almost completely vegetarian menu. On the day of the wedding, Jon and Staff arrived to create a spectacular meal that I received many unsolicited compliments on. Numerous guests commented that it was the best wedding meal they had ever tasted. What I found even more pleasing than the delicious meal was the professionalism of Jon and Staff. They were extremely attentive to myself and guests, and it was obvious their efforts were genuine. You want to be surrounded by good people and positive energy on your wedding day, and that is the vibe the Team gave off. I could not have dreamed of a better experience with my wedding day caterer.... and I will admit that I am a perfectionist. I would not hesitate to recommend Paradise to anyone.... I can guarantee you will not be disappointed. Photography by: The Why We Love.

My wedding went so smoothly on account of Paradise. This vendor was such an important part of our wedding and Nancy and Ashley in particular stand out in my mind as such positive, calming, helpful, friendly presences on what can be such a busy, hectic day. They were right there when I needed them, offering an extra appetizer or drink, and faded nicely into the background of a well oiled machine otherwise. Not to mention the food was delicious! Such unique and local offerings and so tasty. You cannot go wrong with this amazing vendor. Thank you for making my wedding day spectacular!

When choosing a caterer for your wedding or any other event, there is NO ONE better than Nancy, Jon and the crew at Paradise Catering in Carmel Valley. My husband and I were amazed at the level of attention to detail and love that is put into every dish they created. When planning a wedding you need to be surrounded by support and the comfort of knowing that your vendors will be there to help in any way possible. Paradise Catering did just that from the first tasting through the day of our wedding! My husband and I had special requests for each one of our appetizers and dishes and both Jon and Nancy were happy to accommodate and to create our dream menu! It was the little touches like bringing myself and my starving bridesmaids avocado and bread slices before the ceremony that made their service so unique (a big THANK YOU to Ashely for all of your hard work and attention when we needed you). I had very high expectations for the food at our wedding and Paradise Catering met EVERY one of them! I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you again, Paradise Catering, you were essential to making our absolute perfect wedding day at Holman Ranch! Photography by: Jasmine Lee Photography

I wanted to share with other couples that need a competent caterer about Paradise Catering, in Carmel Valley. They provided the most delicious cuisine for our rehearsal dinner(best barbecue ever) and reception dinner (salmon and chicken) at Gardener Ranch in Carmel Valley the weekend of September 22, 2018. Nancy and Jon, along with their staff are an unbelievable combination of chef and event planning. From the moment our family met them we knew we were in good hands because of their professional and genuine concern about our event. They even prepared a special meal for one of our guests.

I will be forever grateful to Paradise Catering for making our guests so happy with the menu. Trust me, if you have a wonderful caterer, guests will remember your wedding because of the menu! We received so many compliments on the dinners both nights. Thanks Nancy for serving us with a smile! Hire them and know you will have a wonderful event.

From the moment we had our tasting and met Nancy & Jon, we knew we had found the best! Paradise catered our Rehearsal Dinner & Wedding. Everything was outstanding!! We even left our wedding weekend wishing we had more to take home with us. Everyone on staff is so helpful and our guests couldn't say enough about them and the quality of the meals. Thank you so much Paradise Catering!! From Lauren & Miguel (Gardener Ranch 10.20.18)
