Catering by the Family went above and beyond for us on our wedding day! We sat down many times with the owner Steve and his assistant Rachel and they truly treated us like family! We could sit and talk with them for hours! The food was very impressive and we tasted many different caterers and nothing compared. Our guests were raving about the food at our wedding. Steve had many different weddings to cater on 11/2/19 but he made us feel so special when he showed up to our reception (which was about an hour away) to make sure everything was going perfect for us just like we had planned. Like I said, they really do make you feel like family and we 100 percent recommend this company! More...
We will be using them again because the communication prior to the event was awesome, the invoice and payment was easy, and best of all, they set up the food for us, and the food was plentiful and very, very delicious!
We really like working with Catering By The Family. They are a breath of fresh air, especially Rachel. They are honest, hard working, and great at what they do. We highly recommend them and we hope to use them in the future. More...
I've had quite a few different things them hem as to them catering a wedding I attended and then using them to cater in lunch for my employees. I must say the appetizers All of them are good, their chicken salad is to die for,all white meat chicken with cranberries and scallions that explodes in your mouth it is so tasty and satisfying & the bowtie pesto pasta salad is tangy in all the right ways!As far the main course I've had the pleasure of eating the chicken curry which is out of this world! I promise you won't be disappointed and if you need help getting rid of any leftovers I am always available!!!!! LOL Enjoy More...
Incredible food. Great chefs. Clean and delectable. Love the baked ziti!!
Catering by the Family is top notch! Our wedding guests make compliments about that part of our big day the most. Sandy was very easy to work with and always available when needed.

You will not be disappointed with Catering by the Family! More...
We used Catering By The Family for our wedding and everything was delicious! The servers were so professional and friendly! After the representative we initially dealt with left the company unexpectedly, the owner, Steve, stepped in and helped us tailor our menu to exactly what we wanted. My husband, our guests, and I loved everything! More...

We are a small manufacturing business in Tampa that hosts numerous customer meetings throughout the year. Erika Miller is my go to for all of these occasions! Erika does an amazing job putting my menus together, getting us on the schedule, and following up after the event. Erika knows our business, who our customers are, and details our menus for each meeting. Erika is a true asset to Catering By the Family!! Dennis, who delivers all of my catering, is just terrific. Dennis not only delivers, but sets everything up in the space you provide. Always on time, and is attentive to every detail. Awesome caterer, food is delicious, and a staff that goes above and beyond every time! I highly recommend Catering By The Family for any event! More...
Catering By the Family has been our go to caterers for over 25 years. They have handled everything from our birthday and anniversary dinner parties to our holiday events. Their wonderful food, great variety and super attentive service, make them a total success. Catering By the Family’s ability to customize menus and tailor each event we had to the type of guest’s attending was unbelievable. We would definitely recommend them not only for their experience, but because of how fabulous they are while doing it. They really make you feel like you are part of the family! More...
Last night I attended an Influencers Event hosted by Tracy G. and Ian B. with great food and drinks were catered by the Family. Accompanying me were some of my best gal pals and we were all in unison -- the food was fantastic.The display was very festive and well laid-out. There were little sign holders that described each tray. It's the first weekend of November in Florida, so I really appreciated their fall touch with pumkins and autumn leaves across the tablescape. Each item served was hot and fresh and they somehow even managed to keep a COLOSSAL pot of Paella piping hot and delicious for hours as the event went on.Items I enjoyed thoroughly were:- Red/White Wine and other Beverages- Paella Ole: an Ybor tradition made with yellow rice, delicious chorizo sausage, shrimp, chicken, pork, mussels, peas and red peppers.- Mini Pressed Cubans: hot off the presses with layers of sliced roast pork, glazed ham, Swiss cheese, and pickles. Perfect finger food for us Tampa folks ;)- Mini Beef Empanas: woah mama, these were scrumptious! Crispy meat pies with their housemade picadillo fillings. Yes More...
Clean facility great food, hardworking staff.

Catered a lunch for our employees. Everything was fantastic. Great food and service. Nice presentation.
Catering By The Family catered my daughter’s wedding on Nov 12, 2018 and I can’t say enough wonderful things about them. The food was all excellent and tasty. Wish I could eat it everyday.The chefs and servers were all very accommodating, polite and prompt.I will highly recommend them to everyone who needs a caterer.Thank you so much for your help in making the wedding a huge success. More...
Catering By The Family did an excellent job with our wedding at the Mahaffey Theater. Working with Sandy made the whole experience so easy - she has done so many events that it was about the same as having a wedding coordinator to ask questions/bounce ideas. She was easy to get in contact with and was receptive/happy to change anything on the menu to make us happy! The food was excellent and we got tons of compliments on the desserts and apps. Wedding planning is stressful enough, so use Sandy and get one more thing off your plate (I More...
An awesome family environment. I really enjoyed my coworkers. I love it.
Food tasting was presented beautifully, and very delicious! Sandy was very nice, and chef very creative with the food! Definitely going to have them for my daughters wedding reception!
They are catering my wedding. So far we have only have 10/10 experiences with this company. Everyone is so warm and their food is AMAZING
As a professional wedding planner, I rely on expert catering for events large and small. Catering by the Family always provides delicious food and exceptional, attentive service. They customize menus to fit my clients' budgets, tastes, and styles. Their creativity, flexibility, affordability and professionalism, are the main reasons why I continue to work with them. One example was a recent wedding that was truly awesome! Catering Captain Mike and the whole team did an incredible job!! Chef Stevie prepared food that was THE BEST I've ever tasted, and did an amazing job getting all the food out quickly, and it was presented beautifully and it was HOT! I told Mike his team did an excellent job getting all the plates down to the tables so quickly (we kept the timeline with no issues) and he also took care of every special meal and dietary restriction without issue. Seriously FANTASTIC JOB!! I recommend Catering by the Family again and again with out hesitation! More...
Love this place!!
Delicious and beautiful food, and the service is outstanding. I use CBTF for all our corporate events and highly recommend them.
We used Catering By The Family for our daughters wedding recently. I can not say or write enough good things about the experience. But I will attempt to share a few of the highlights. This company although not as expensive as others delivers an event to rival any caterer in the Tampa Bay area and I would argue BEATS THEM ALL! Our 200 plus guest could not say enough good things about the food, the bar, wedding cake and service. We choose to have a family style meal instead of a buffet or platted meals. Although we received many declines from other caterers this company not only agreed to do it but they nailed it so much that it made the wedding perfect. The food was delicious, served hot and the staff was professional and incredibly friendly to the point guest specifically commented to us about it.From the tasting to the finish product Mr. Gonzalez, Erica and staff were wonderful. Lastly and most importantly we must recognize Stevie Gonzalez who hands down makes the best SHRIMP & GRITS, braised short ribs in the entire Tampa Bay area! This young man is so talented and the Gonzalez family is so fortunate to have that talent in its next generation to carry on its outstanding quality and service.Thank you to each person who was involved in making our daughters wedding one in which everyone whom attended said "the best wedding we've ever been to". Without you this would not have been true!Family - leaves a place in our heart which we never forget. We will never forget your families contribution to ours.Love,The Love's 2018 More...
Here for all you catering needs. From house parties to weddings, catering by the Family will take the highest care for you event.
They catered and bartended our wedding and they did a phenomenal job!!! Everyone at our wedding loved the food and said the bartender kept it moving so there was no long wait. I highly recommend using them and the ,chicken picatta was by far my favorite!!! More...
Surprise 80th birthday party, First class operation from my first interaction until the conclusion of my event. The food was absolutely delicious. Spanish/Cuban food, yellow rice, black beans, mojo chicken, mojo pork, cuban bread, tossed salad with some delicious dressing. Coffee, tea, water, sodas, and we also ordered a beer and wine package adding sangria as well and a champagne toast. One of the things I was most pleased with , besides the food quality, and reasonable prices, was that I had almost nothing to do as they took care of everything from set up to clean up and even put up the decorations I bought.We had about 50 people and had a buffet meal on china with all the appropriate glassware for example china coffee cups and glass champagne glasses. Beautiful linen table cloths and napkins. We had an event manager on site as well as servers and a bartender. I cannot say enough good things about Catering by the Family. I highly recommend them. More...
I was introduced to Catering By The Family about 20 years ago. I have used CBTF for all of my business catering needs for years now. They are so easy to work with, very creative and accommodating. We do custom menus that they create for us relating to the theme of the event. They are very professional in everything they do and their food is amazing!. I would highly recommend them for any small or large event you are needing a professional caterer for. More...
Awesome food and service
Expensive to day the least but in more detail.. they are very good and professional at what they do. Very good service and the did was delicious.
We booked Catering by the Family after having issues with tastings. We would go to “group” or “event” tasting where we would sample food, but none of it was what we wanted. We were told we wouldn’t be able to taste what would be served at our wedding as what we wanted was not offered at the group tastings or events. We wanted Cuban or Spanish style food to fit our theme of Gasparilla and have local cuisine. It was very important to us to taste the food we would be paying for and having at our wedding so we did not want to book with a company where we didn’t taste the food. Juan had assured us we could try some of the food at our tasting. When we arrived, we were the only people there, which amazing because at group tastings we couldn’t find anyone to talk to and things got overwhelming. A table was set up in our colors just for us and Juan. I didn’t even tell him what our colors were; he just went with our theme. The settings were perfect. When it came time to do our tasting, so much food was brought out that we got to try all the Spanish food they had to offer. Everything tasted amazing. We booked right then and there. During year we emailed back and forth. Email replies were a little slow, which had me a little concerned. When it came to the wedding day, everything was perfect. Juan came out and greeted us, which I was so thankful for. That one small gesture meant a lot! I got so many people telling me the food was amazing and the wait staff and bartenders were so nice and wonderful! I even had a waiter come to us with plates with all the food offered at the buffet. Everything tasted above and beyond and for the price, you can't beat it! We highly recommend them! More...
They have been working with the best in Tampa very good condition on working with people who need them.
Catering by the Family provided food for a wedding at the St. Petersburg Museum of History on June 3, 2017. Sandy arrived early and worked hard to prepare for the evening. Paul, Queen, Henry, Daniel, Mike, James, and Jasmine were the staff for the evening. They worked hard, were very professional, and were an absolute delight to work with. I highly recommend this catering service! More...
The best catering in Tampa. Their food is amazing there prices are reasonable. We used them for our wedding a few years ago and a few different sets of friends also have used them always some of the best food.

Great food and service! I would 100% recommend them as a catering service. There customer service was great as well. The people we worked with were all very professional and nice people!
Event went great thanks to Catering by the family. Great presentation and great food!
A friend of mine used them and I was so impressed! Would reccommend to EVERYONE having a catered event! Food, service and attention to detail is outstanding!
Steve and his ‘crew’ were extremely professional, thorough and so easy to deal with throughout the entire process of planning to the time we said goodbye. We used Catering By The Family for a wedding party and birthday party with only 2 days apart. Everyone was entirely satisfied and delighted with the food and the services! Steve picked the items from his menu and I trusted him and he did not disappoint! I will definitely be calling Catering By The Family again for the next event! More...
Excellent food and service! I highly recommend them for any of your catering needs! Absolutely fantastic team of people that know how to create amazing tasting food.
There is really no place in town that compares. They provide everything you need for any type of event, right down to the napkins. The food has been good and fresh for each event we have done, and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly.Our family used them for 2 wedding receptions, as well as a charity event and everything was perfect. Prior to the events we felt like the communication was excellent and we received exactly what was expected and promised. We will definitely use them again. More...

The Best in TampaDon't go anywhere elseThe food is deliciousThe staff is awesomeThe prices are greatLOVE LOVE LOVE Catering By The Family
Steve and his crew have provided dinner for our non-profit group's annual fund-raiser for about the last 10 -15 years. His on site manager, Oma and her staff are very professional, and ALWAYS serve a very high quality meal to our 300+ attendees. Lori usually heads up the bar and handles everything from setup to breakdown of the bar and takes great care of our attendees. We have stayed with Catering By The Family because they do such a great job for our group, Ducks Unlimited - I don't think we've ever had a problem. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an excellent, high quality and reliable catering company. Mike Gruendel More...
We love Catering by The Family!!! Best one in Tampa!!! We use them for anything we need catered!!!
I love Catering by The Family. I use it for many of my District Sales Meetings and various other company events. The quality and variety of food is excellent.

Our staff was delighted with the food, presentation and experience with all personnel. Thank you a great experience.
Juan and his team are the best! Excellent food, great service and at the right price!
CBTF were extremely helpful in our event. They jumped at every opportunity to assist in any way and were able to roll with a few changes to our event. Thank you so much CBTF! We will be sure to use you guys again! More...
My husband and I used Catering by the Family for our Downtown Tampa wedding and we absolutely loved everything about them! The food was great, the service was even better, and the overall experience was exactly what you would expect for an event as nice as a wedding.Steve, the owner, worked with us every step of the way to ensure that we picked the perfect menu (which was very difficult considering all the amazing options they have!), and was even at our wedding making sure everything went smoothly. He also made sure to send us home with enough leftovers to feed a small army!We found that the prices were very competitive, and Steve worked to make sure we stayed within our budget without compromising our food selections. We felt very accommodated every step of the way.Another benefit of using Catering by the Family is that they provide on-site cooking with their mobile kitchen. So regardless of your venue's kitchen facilities, CBTF will make sure your food is prepared fresh and tastes great!I would highly recommend Catering by the Family to anyone looking for great food, knowledgeable and friendly staff, and amazing service.

I always enjoyed working with Catering by the Family. Fun work! Great people! Staeve was awesome. Gasparilla was the BEST.
Best customer service the food was outstanding and staff was very Professional and a Pleasure to have in our home Thank you
We chose Catering by the Family to cater our wedding, and it was an excellent choice. The plated meals were beautifully done and the food was great. In fact, we had their food again at another wedding after ours, which only confirmed how great the food is! On your wedding day, everything can fly by so fast so it was hard to stop and truly enjoy very bite of food. We were so grateful to be able to enjoy their food again on a day that we weren’t the center of attention. We also chose to have them do our cake as well, and it was not only gorgeous, but very tasty as well. Sandy Thiebe was so very accessible and helpful throughout the process as well. We are so glad we chose Catering by the Family for our wedding. We highly recommend this vendor. More...

If you are looking for a caterer that goes above and beyond anything you could possibly fathom, dont go any further than Catering By The Family! !!! Steve Gonzalez and his exemplary professional staff not only provided my wife and I with the most absolute professionalism and knowledge of set up and timeliness for our wedding reception, but the food, hor'deurves cake decorations were unbelievably worth every penny! His prices are extremely affordable for any budget and the amount of variations and options you are offered allow you to absolutely customize your perfect dream wedding!! We cant thank Steve and crew enough for what they did...every single guest complimented us weeks after our wedding on the services that Catering By The Family provided!!!! Being a school teacher...Catering By The Family earned an A+ in my book!!!! More...
One of the Best caterers in Florida! Incredible attention to detail on all the little things! Couple days before the event i started worrying about the catering, among other things! I get a call from Juan confirming that everything was set. That took a load of my mind. Next, they contacted me the morning of and told me that they were going to be in route 2 hours early to make sure that all my guest would be taken care of from the beginning! It was such a memorable event! Excellent service! Never needed to call for a server for anything, they were always attending to everything! WELL WORTH THE MONEY! More...
These guys are pros! Absolutely delicious fare that our guests kept raving about, professional servers and a class set up made us look like we do this everyday. Wow! It was so nice to arrive at the Magnolia Building in Lakeland after the wedding and have everything ready to go and looking first class. The tables looked beautiful and Steve's team just kept wowing us all night, from filling water and iced tea glasses, to serving cake and coffee, all quickly and virtually unseen. After dinner, they cleaned up and disappeared without a sound. I may never host an event this big again, but I hope I'm invited to one catered by Catering by the Family! Thanks again, Steve! More...
Catering by the Family is our choice for our wedding caterer for next year. We met them at a bridal show at the Regent in Tampa and loved the food! I contacted Juan after the bridal show to get more information about their services and was pleased from the very beginning with his friendliness and willingness to work with us and our needs. Catering by the Family was able to give us everything we wanted within a budget that we could afford. We had tastings with other caterers and their food was the best! I am really looking forward to working with them for our big day :) More...
Our event production company has used Catering By The Family for all kinds of events throughout the years and things have always run smoothly! From a private dinner for a couple dozen people to an event that feeds thousands, they are always professional, always on time and always willing to go the extra mile!We also just used CBTF for my sisters wedding this spring. The food was delicious, the staff was exceptionally helpful when we had to move tables around. Everything about the process from the tasting months ago to the serving of cake the night of the wedding, everything went wonderfully. The staff was very nice and accommodating to allergy restrictions and things too which was important to our guests! I would recommend them any time, every time! More...
I used Catering By the Family for my Christmas/Birthday/Anniversary Party this past December and it was just perfect! Their food NEVER disappoints and is always fresh and flavorful and on point - the food really is everything that you would expect and more. The staff that brought the food and set it up was extremely helpful, friendly, hard-working, and efficient! I recommend Catering By the Family ANYTIME I know someone is having a wedding or a party. I have had friends use other catering companies for their weddings and they just did not get it right - bland, hard chicken, flavorless appetizers, etc. - and THOSE catering companies are TWICE the price! So, if looking for a company to cater amazing food - call Steve and company over at Catering By the Family and you will seriously never use another company again! More...
Catering by the Family does all my personal and corporate events. They have done over 6 of them each one better than the last. They really strive to make sure the customer gets what they want. They also work great under pressure! We always have very specific requests and are usually under a time crunch but Catering by the Family always makes it happen and it happens well! Steve and his team are always happy and eager to help. I will continue to use them for all events in the future and you should too! More...
Great Food! Chef Ryan was great!
Mosaic Westshore Assistant Manager
We have used Catering by the Family twice so far and both times the food was amazing. We chose this company because of a personal referral and we are glad we did. The compliments that came after our Holiday Party and Jazz Night flowed in due to the great food. More...
