I was very happy with the entire experience we had with Joy Catering. This is a small, husband and wife owned and run business, who really does care about the people they work with. I gave them my budget and head counts and they were able to provide us with a really, really good menu that was very well stocked. Nobody left the party hungry, that's for sure!
We were very pleased with the food we had at a party catered by San Marino Caterers over the summer. Their hor's oevres and plates were very tasty indeed, especially the spanikopita and the shrimp salad crostini. Yum!
We attended a banquet at the Anoush Restaurant in Glendale that was truly a sight to behold. Their presentation and aesthetics can't be adequately described. I wish I could add a picture of their unique food presentation and just how appealing it was visually. The taste was equally as good.
We went to a family party at my cousin's that was catered by Michall's Liquor and Deli. The sandwiches were okay, but nothing out of the ordinary. I felt the sandwiches were more bread than meat and could have used a little more oomph.
When our friend's daughter was getting ready to celebrate her quincinera, we took her to a local salon with a very good reputation for doing hair, Cana Karola. I was impressed with the job they did and even more surprised by the other services they offered - video and limo.
Our friends held an event catered by Roberts Catering Service that was out of this world. They had various stations with just about every conceivable food theme imaginable that drew rave reviews from the crowd. From the artfully arranged presentation of each station to the actual food, all I can say is they were exceptional.
We attended a wedding at the Petroleum Club of Long Beach which I found to be very nice. The surroundings of this private club weren't as fancy as I thought they would be, but rather, they were welcoming and inviting. The food was very good and the wait staff professional.
We used Edi's Party Rental for an event we held. Their prices were competitive, but the deliver of tables, chairs and glasware was late to our event, which caused a major rush to get finished. They should have called and let us know they were going to be late.
We were invited to a fashion show at the Rio Hondo Event Center in Downey that was actually much better than I had thought it would be. The parking was a little convoluted, but the event venue itself was very pretty and the right setting for a lovely show.
My nieces have taken tennis lessons through the San Marino Tennis Center for years and just love it. My sister and brother in law have also taken lesson there and invited us to join them to watch. The tennis center is a very nuturing environment for the kids. It was fun to watch them.
