I cannot express how appreciative we were to have such fantastic food and service staff on our wedding day! We had only amazing compliments from all of our friends, family and guests. You also went out of your way to assist us by contacting BevMo to replace an incorrect keg tap that they provided to us - that was truly outstanding service. To anyone hosting a wedding or an event that needs catering, I will highly recommend Santa Barbara! Thank you for everything!!!

Santa Barbara did the BEST job catering our wedding. Our guests continue to rave about the delicious food and presentation. They did such an amazing job finding flowers to decorate the service tables that matched the flowers of my centerpieces. I thought that was very thoughtful. Also, our event planner, Nikki DeHerrera, was incredible. She was so helpful and so positive and made the entire experience so pleasant. She was a true joy to work with. I would recommend Santa Barbara to anyone.

Everyone loved the food we selected for dinner and appetizers! We got so many compliments and heard that many people went back for seconds! It was also really nice to have the staff serve my husband and I so we didn't have to go through the line. Nicole made sure we sat down and ate! The staff also made sure to bring us appetizers while we were taking pictures. Plenty of amazing food, professional service, and wonderful presentation made are special night that much more perfect. Thanks a million!!!

I am thankful to Santa Barbara for their contribution to one of my most memorable days of my life. I was very comfortable letting them handle everything dealing with the food so I didn??t have to. Everything was so hassle-free and I was able to enjoy time with my guests. Not to mention the food was outstanding!

Thank you Santa Barbara Catering so much for the wonderful experience. Everything was just perfect and everyone loved the food. I can't even count how many times I have heard that it was by far the best food anyone has had at a wedding. The family style went great and the place looked perfect when I showed up. We knew that we did not have a huge group of dancers showing up so instead of making it dinner with a dancing party we had to make it a dinner party with a little dancing. Santa Barbara completely helped us achieve that goal. They were wonderful throughout the whole process. Thank you to Santa Barbara for all their help and advice.

I am so happy that I ordered the food for my party from Santa Barbara Catering. Everything was beyond perfect. The food was delicious and beautiful and it was well wrapped and labeled when I picked it up. The attention to detail was faultless. My guests were in heaven. We loved everything.

All of our guests comments were positive about Santa Barbara; they loved the food and the venue is spectacular. Even with the rain, everything was taken care of. Thanks Suzanne for coming down and rearranging for the ceremony. The Santa Barbara staff was very professional and I was so surprised they had someone to help us with the wedding. I didn't catch his name but he was appreciated. We are so glad we had access to the adjacent dressing room. All of the babies & moms & dads & groomsmen & relatives & officiants & singers used this room! Jessica & her girls also loved their dressing room. We used a theater space but it is perfect as a wedding venue. All of the Santa Barbara staff were all so great. Tom was there to help with anything I asked for and even packed leftovers (which we are still enjoying). I have had so many compliments on the food; the dessert bar was a hit! The girls even helped us pack the flowers when we were clearing out. Thank you Santa Barbara for making everything so easy.

On June 4th we had a wedding reception at the Tempe Center for the Arts and the Santa Barbara Catering staff was very helpful and easy to work with. Every staff member we encountered was pleasant: the food servers, bar tenders and especially our planner from Santa Barbara, Lauren. She is an asset to the company. The way she handles a combatant D.J. was very professional, even though it may not have been her responsibility. We are so thankful for the delicious food and great staff!

We were so thrilled with how well everything turned out at the wedding. The food was great and no one drank us over budget. The cake was almost exotic and still delicious. The Tempe Center for the Arts lived up to our high expectations and made a beautiful and scenic back drop for the day. The officiant gave us a taste of deja vu and the limo was on time. We want to take a minute and thank everyone at SBCC who planned and worked our wedding; Lauren, Jon, Ryan Steve and Jason. The entire SBCC staff was very accommodating to make sure our reception went off as flawless as possible and that every detail was taken care of. The professionalism of the SBCC staff is commendable and appreciated. Do we need to mention how good the food was again?! Thanks for taking such great care of us and our guests!

The food was delicious -- we had many positive comments from guests. The service was great. I was especially impressed with the head table servers who were always there, but not in an obvious, intrusive way... and always ready to do something to help. Melissan was wonderful to work with. She listened to what we wanted and provided practical suggestions. It helped me a lot to have strong confidence in her and Santa Barbara catering -- it was one thing I didn't have to worry about. You helped make our wedding fabulous... thank you!

We stopped by Santa Barbara's booth at a bridal fair .... the smashed potatoes were fan-tas-tic! Being the vegetarian, I skipped the pulled meat, but my friends really liked it. They also tried the other caterers and, hands down, you guys were voted the best!

When we were looking for a venue for the celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Tempe Leadership program, we wanted to find a venue to showcase the significance of the program??s accomplishments over the last 25 years. TCA was the perfect beautiful, artistic and elegant setting to create the ambience to celebrate our history and launch into our future. Plus, the entire staff at Santa Barbara Catering was wonderful! They listened to our needs and desires and created a perfect menu and setting to give our guests a sumptuous, luxurious experience while working with our budget. The food was spectacular, the setting was beautiful and the staff was attentive, professional and personable. Thank you for helping us create and deliver a flawless celebration!

Santa Barbara did an amazing job at our wedding last year. To this day, people ask me about the steak that was served. They say that is was some of the best they have ever had. Best of luck to Santa Barbara in the future.

I appreciated all the help and guidance from Santa Barbara Catering to make our event a success. Everyone that evening was great. Very kind and attentive! Tom was wonderful and the gentlemen helped Tara and I at the end of the evening move our supplies to our cars.

It was great. We??ve had many compliments on the food from everyone.

I look forward to working with you at another event.

Working with Santa Barbara Catering was great. Both of our contacts were amazing. It is so nice as an event planner to not have to worry about the catering side of things ?? and that??s the confidence I have when working with Santa Barbara Catering. Lauren was ALWAYS very responsive to phone calls and emails. She was very professional and such a delight to work with. It was great to know that if I had a question or a change with our event that she would be quick to help and take care of it.

The staff that worked the night of our event were all great too ?? very professional, friendly and helpful. It proves that the expectations and work ethic from Santa Barbara Catering starts from the top and continues with the event staff.

Thank you for everything. It was a great party overall, and I think all of our guests had a great time. The one thing people have been telling me over and over is how great the food and service was. We have been to many events, and the food has been good, but this was truly excellent. You were very easy to work with; professional and very accomidating.
