We hired Laurel & Matt to cater a birthday party at our new home. They were exceptional from the first phone call and until the very end. The service and attention to details were superb! Laurel thought of things ahead of time & worked with me daily over the phone . The food was delicious - all my guests enjoyed the BBQ sliders, chicken, salads, appetizers! And the decor was so pretty too! All my guests also commented on how nice Laurel is....she was just SO attentive to everyone's needs but it also felt like Matt & Laurel were just part of the group - seamless, delicious, professional - what else do you need? HIghly recommend and will use again. Thank you Laurel & Matt!

I work for the Hotel Drisco and was charged with finding a caterer for our staff Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Bottom line: for Thanksgiving, the food itself was in the top three Thanksgiving meals I have ever had, an opinion voiced by most of the staff (about 30). Beyond the quality of the food itself, the detail of the presentation and the service were outstanding in all respects. Rather than going for a "standard" menu offered by most caterers, we asked for quite a lot of customization. Some of our requests were specific based on what we wanted to have served while others we simply provided some general ideas and left the magic to Laurel and her staff. And magic it was. One example: we asked to include a custard pie with the dessert offerings. What we got was a Chess Pie (look it up). Incredible. The turkey was moist, the gravy perfect and plentiful, and so on. The other entree was pork loin with apricots, apples & herbs. Moist, "porky" goodness, etc. Tofurkey for our vegan staff. Oh, and a yam dish with marshmallows that was NOT the usual glop. The result of Laurel's efforts was mouse-like in texture with the marshmallow adding just a very slight and perfect sweetness to the classic flavor of the yams. Perfection.  The Thanksgiving staff meal was so good that there was no question about having Laurel back for our staff Christmas party. This time a standing rib roast cooked to pink perfection, carved in generous portions with a really great horseradish sauce and duck breast were the two entrees. Juicy, perfectly cooked, a cherry/pomegranate sauce, yum. Desserts, so good (including homemade Christmas cookies).  Sides for Christmas and Thanksgiving were creative, perfectly cooked, and expertly served.  Cost? One gets what one pays for. Is Laurel the least expensive? Nope. But we were looking for high quality and a great value. We got it. Exceptional in every respect.  We would recommend Laurel's Catering for any event from wedding to birthday party to a corporate function where you want to ensure it's culinary success.

From the first phone call to the last dish being washed by Laurel's team, everything went perfectly.
Laurel is a true professional with outstanding communication skills that leaves no stone unturned.  
Her chef, Howard, took care of all the cooking, prepping, cleaning during the party and her server Vinnie poured the wine, served the appetizers, and took a group shot of the motley crew at my husband's 70th birthday party.
ALL of my guests complimented the food, and many of them went home with to go plates served up by Howard and Vinnie.
Laurel is just lovely to work with and I hope to be able to have the pleasure to work with her again some day.
Thanks for making my husband's 70th birthday party a smashing success!

I was in contact with Laurel inquiring about catering for a Wedding in Stinson Beach, CA. Despite the distance and the fact that it was an outside event, I was really impressed with Laurel's Can-do attitude! In addition, I had contacted 4 other catering business in and around Stinson Beach and not one of them picked up the phone! Laurel, on the other hand, made sure to make time to pick up the phone and have a conversation about my even, concerns, etc. She was honest, kind, understanding, and quick to response. I recommend this company especially for its professionalism. A rare find in this day and age!

Laurel and her team catered my office Thanksgiving luncheon and it was amazing. The food was delicious and delivered on time, as promised. Laurel was very friendly, easy to work with and super accommodating of our requests. We will definitely be turning to her for future office events. I highly recommend Laurel's Catering to anyone who is looking for top notch service and quality. Two thumbs way up!
