Aaronette and Ahmad did a wonderful job! I had a somewhat last-minute request to arrange a holiday meal for a division meeting in my office. Everyone loved the food and it was a success. It was such a relief that everything worked out and the food was so good. We will definitely be repeat customers. :) More...

Ordered through Aaronette for a last-minute office meeting. (when I say last minute, I truly mean LAST MINUTE 40 executives & less than a week notice) It was a roller coaster ride to say the least, but their service made me feel like I made the right decision. Too many careering businesses in the bay area either have good food and ok service or wonderful service, but the food is less than palatable. Rarely do you come across a business that has both great food and great service! Ordering and delivery were both extremely easy. a Aaronette took care of everything.  She created a custom menu that accommodated all dietary needs (vegan, gluten free, vegetarian) and all organic ingredients were used. We enjoyed a delicious Taco bar with all the goods: fresh salsa, sour cream, grilled corn, queso fresco, fresh guacamole, vegan cupcakes. Plus a delicious watermelon salad. I'm elated I ordered because we all know that no one forgets bad food at a meeting. More...

Can I give them 6 stars? We were THRILLED with Eat Play Events for my wife's surprise birthday party. In addition to their food being off the chart delicious (tea soaked chicken app, wow! ) Aaronette was incredibly helpful before & during the party. She headed to the store to get a few things that I forgot/didn't have time to get before the party  and later in the party restocked the toilet paper in my guest bathroom when we were running low. Talk about above and beyond! I'm looking for an excuse to host another party so I can hire EPE again soon! Thank you Aaronette & EPE!! More...

They catered an amazing surprise 95th birthday for my husband for 40 plus guess and everyone raved about the Hors d'oeuvres, shrimp and special homemade cocktail sauce and grilled veggies. Oh and the chicken empanadas were delicious. The food was fresh, and plentiful. Presentation was amazing. More...

I hired Eat Play Events and Catering for a small conference of 25. There were so many good options on the catering menu, it became a challenge to choose from, the bonus was they worked within our budget (Tea soaked chicken was my absolute favorite). The presentation of food was simply AMAZING and the staff was extremely professional. We are currently putting together a large conference of 200 people and looking forward to working with Eat Play Events and Catering to dazzle our pallets again. Thank you, you are truly EPEC.

Aaronette and her crew are the best!  Delicious food. Gracious customer service.  And did I say fun?  Oh my gosh, any event with Eat Play will live in your happy memory bank, probably forever!

Can't give 0 stars, that's the only reason there is 1 star. My 52 twin sister passed away so I had to plan her memorial with her husband and our family/friends. I went on EzCater and found Eat Play Events and Catering. All the reviews I read about Eat Play were good. Setting up a memorial means having to do a so many things in a very short amount of time. So I pick Eat Play, look at he menu options with my brother in law and go for it. We order a hummus platter for 30 people, chicken skewers for 30 people, and a meat/cheese/bread/crackers plate for 40. I'm running around getting things ready and had a friend receive the food and put it out. She comes to get me and we are both shocked at the amount of food. The $240 hummus platter consisted of a bowl of hummus maybe slightly bigger than a Sabra Hummus family size (which costs like $7) and some veggies that maybe cost another $20 at the very most!!(see pictures on Yelp). ONE PLATTER OF HUMMUS FOR $240!!! Imagine a class full of 30 students WOULD YOU PUT THAT OUT FOR THEM?????NO!! NO!! NO!! The shriveled looking TINY chicken skewers cost me $180 ( I could have gotten a family size of chicken breasts from Safeway and had my TEENAGE son make that dish and it would have looked better and cost me $25). I didn't take a picture of the skewers but trust me, that container was barely half full. The meat and cheese/bread and crackers cost me $320!!!!!

I actually work at a law firm and there is a TON of catered food weekly and I know for a fact that these prices are absolutely INSANE. I called EzCater and they called Eat Play who offered to bring me more food but I would have to pay for it!! HA!!! I truly thought there was a mistake my order was OVER NINE HUNDRED- YES $900 and Eat Play did absolutely NOTHING and EzCater credited me 25% of the cost of the food. I was literally on the phone as guests were arriving TO MY SISTER's FUNERAL and forgot to remove the very generous tip I gave the driver, they could have at least reminded me of that. So after the EzCater credit I spent $750 on food that I could have made for $100 or less. AND THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH FOOD SO I HAD TO SEND A FRIEND TO SAFEWAY. She did a fantastic job and literally saved the day.

These people are crooks. Don't use them, or if you do ask them to send you pictures of what feeding the amount of people you need to feed so you will not be surprised like me THE DAY I WAS AT MY SISTER'S FUNERAL. Look at the pictures and the bill yourself. The only good thing about this experience was contact EzCater. I could tell they tried and wanted to help but EAT PLAY DIDN'T DO CRAP!!!

We used Eat Play Events & Catering for catering on a 2 day indie film shoot. They were so kind and flexible and worked diligently to make it work within our budget. Though it seemed to be there first time doing a film shoot, they were always on time, efficient and prepared. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and working with them. I'd highly recommend their services.

Aaronette and Ahmad were fabulous to work with. I called Aaronette less than a week prior to my event. She was so responsive (even though it is high catering season! ), and cultivated a detailed menu over the next few days taking all of my ideas, dietary restrictions and budget into account. She was so flexible and understanding with the constant revisions and tweaks I was making to the order, and a great collaborator!Ahmad was amazing with his delivery, set up, communications and also accommodating last minute tweaks and requests to our order. He had no problem checking in with building security, figuring out where to go and how to set up even though I hadn't arrived at the facility yet. Super friendly, professional and accommodating.And the small matter of the food...DELICIOUS. My boss said it was the first time he has had greens done right by a caterer. From the salads on through to desserts, first class and generous portions. Cant wait to work with these guys again! More...

Eat Play Events & Catering was a major hit at our wedding. It was literally the hottest day of the year, no air conditioning in the building and it was 103 degrees outside with no breeze. Every single person I have spoken to after my wedding had 3 things to say about my special day: I can never forget your wedding it was literally the hottest wedding I have ever been to, it was beautiful and the food was AMAZING! We wanted to keep the food simple and have a taco bar, Aaronette and her staff went above and beyond with that taco bar, the 3 different meats were delicious and we had every topping you could think of. I will definitely use Eat Play Events & Catering in the future and recommend you do as well! More...

I have been using Eat Play Events for several years, mainly for providing healthy lunch meals for my Science in the City Summer Camp at Stanford University.  It is difficult to find lunch menus that are low in sugar, but still are delicious for 5th and 6th graders.  Our students loved lunchtime and demolished their meals, mostly consisting of sandwiches, wraps, and salads.  Moreover, they were flexible with us when we moved the camp from Oakland back to Stanford.Outside of catering our lunches, I have used them for events and they have provided tasty meals that have been within my budget, for which I am grateful for and appreciate.
