I cannot say enough about the amazing job that EcoCaters did for our wedding. We worked with Jessica Sleep and she helped us make our wedding exactly how we wanted it, which was no easy feat considering we were planning from 2000+ miles away! We wanted a taco bar as an ode to our love for Mexican food and we had so many options for fillings and sides! We went with chicken and flat-iron steak tacos as well as rice and black beans as the sides. Our guests raved about the food, which was outstanding. It was also easy to get our rentals, as EcoCaters worked with Platinum Event Rentals. Our entire day ran so smoothly and I attribute it to the hard work that the EcoCaters team did. We highly recommend them and would consider using their catering services again in the future. More...

Let me first begin by stating that hiring Eco Catering for my wedding was the best and easiest decision I ever made - second to marrying my husband. Christine is an absolute gem and I was lucky enough to work with her directly as I planned my own wedding. Doing it myself with little event planning knowledge, Christine and the entire Eco Catering team went above and beyond to help me every step of the way. They were honest, transparent and realistic in offering suggestions to me about how I could save money, and they guided me to make the best decisions for our wedding day.

The level of service is just phenomenal. Christine was punctual in our phone meetings and always quick to respond to my emails. She worked to help me create a unique package that fit my very tight budget and then facilitated everything from service staff, bartenders and rentals. Chef Rob even created unique cocktail recipes for our “His and Hers” bar menu. Christine helped me order all the ice for our event and even brought serving platters and plated our desserts beautifully, even though we brought our own desserts.

Most importantly, the food is DAMN DELICIOUS. Chef Rob is a genius! Our guests said it was some of the best food they’d ever had at a wedding, and also just in life - especially the vegetarian jackfruit taco. I love that their recipes are created by shopping seasonally at the farmer’s market, so you know everything is fresh and organic.

I really can’t applaud or recommend ECO catering enough. They are the best value of any caterer in Southern California (you can bet I got 10+ other quotes) and their food and service are just more than I feel I truly deserved. I will no doubt hire ECO for all my future catering needs.

We met Ann Lancaster and Chef Tony and their delicious food at an open house over the weekend in Pasadena. They were very quick to respond to messages and set up a tour of the beautiful Romanesque Room. Ann and Tony welcomed my entire family when we showed up to view the location, the energy they carried made me feel comfortable to do business with them, they're the kind of people you want on your team when planning your wedding. The location is magnificent, the gorgeous foyer, the spacious ballroom, new hardwood flooring in the bar area, this location also has a spacious outdoor area where you can hold your ceremony or cocktail hour. Tony and Ann have been in the business for years and they can help you create your own dream day. More...

It can be confusing and stressful to plan a two-day executive event from another state to take place at a venue you've never seen before. Plus, I wasn't going to attend the event. Despite this, Stacy put me at ease and kept the logistics of catering and equipment rental running incredibly smoothly! She worked diligently to accommodate specific needs and would always respond to me in record time (usually within 5 minutes, how the heck!?). It was a major relief to know I had someone so professional and trustworthy on site for the two days of the event. I'll definitely be giving Stacy and Eco Caters a call the next time I need to plan an event in LA. More...

Shadia, John, and Chef Robbie were outstanding from start to finish. They helped cater a very large VIP event recently and the food was excellent. The displays were lavish, the ingredients were fresh and local, and the great attention to detail paid to our entire group from the staff was unparalleled. Additionally, as someone with a food allergy, I know how difficult an appetizer only selection at an event can be. They worked with me to identify various opportunities to offer selections that worked with any dietary restriction. If you need someone in DC, these are your people. Shadia, additionally, went above and beyond the call of duty and was attentive, knowledgeable, and just had it together. They are so great to work with...hopefully you get to work with Shadia, too! I know based on scope/people they assign various coordinators, but if you can...request her! More...

Me and my husband have no words to be able to explain how AMAZING this company is!! They were a God send to us. Let me start from the beginning...I was working with another catering company at first and just was not being treated like I felt appropriate (I will not go into detail as this is not their review), I was constantly telling my husband how sad and displeased I was by their service, until one day it just got to be too much and I decided to look for another caterer only months away from our wedding. In comes Eco Catering, as soon as we spoke with them I was at ease and felt special and most importantly heard! They listened to everything we had to say and treated us like we were their only concern. It was exactly how we imagined it was suppose to be and more. The food was INCREDIBLE and is still being raved about by our friends, but let me tell you about how much more they are than food!! This team made sure we had the wedding of our dreams! Helped with set up, timing, making sure every detail was perfect, and keeping me from worrying about anything at all! They were not only our catering for the most incredible food, but handled the decorations, and was basically our wedding day coordinator. We can not thank this company and their amazing, friendly, hard working, caring staff. EVERY SINGLE PERSON in this company went above and beyond! Please please please do yourself a favor and not even consider anyone but the BEST for your event, which is obviously Eco Catering and their whole team. We have to give a special thank you to Emily and Jessica with Eco and also Cristin who works for their partners Platinum events, you guys made our wedding a dream and can not thank you enough!

Exceptional in every way.  From start to finish Eco Caters were fantastic (and we will definitely use them again).  Emily was a pleasure to work with (we made lots of changes to our contract/plans and she never batted an eye) and wow did they deliver on their product.  The food was incredible.  Our guest raved about everything and the staff and servers were perfect throughout.Thank you so much for making our party a smash.

Eco Caters did a party of 180 people for us and did not disappoint! They were prompt, organized, dealt with hardship gracefully when our water went out for a few minutes, and the food was delicious and loved by everybody! Get the truffle grilled cheese and the banana cheesecake bites -- those were our favorites. We look forward to hiring them again and again. More...

I am so glad that I have been able to work with Shadia and the entire team at Eco Caters. They put on two amazing corporate events for me this past spring - one of which was a completely custom popcorn and salt station! They really saw my vision come to life and I was able to trust them with the execution from day one. I highly recommend working with this group! More...

Delicious dishes and excellent service! Eco Caters helps us on a monthly basis to keep about 40 Virginia Tech students and faculty energized during intense, full-day graduate school sessions on our Arlington, VA campus. The variety of flavors is wonderful for both vegetarians and carnivores, and the desserts are sublime. Our graduate program is in sustainability leadership, so it is very important for us to model eco-responsible behavior to our students in everything we do, including catering. More...

I cannot recommend Eco Caters enough! They catered a statewide meeting that we had in Santa Monica with about 200 people for lunch for two days. Both of the staff that came were friendly and professional. The food was so fresh, delicious, and flavorful. They offered several very wonderful vegetarian and vegan options. The chicken on both days was perfectly cooked and so full of flavor. I really liked the food the first day but was blown away the second day! I got nothing but compliments from attendees saying how much they loved the food. I saw so many clean plates. We went with the chef's choice option for both days and didn't know the menu until a few days before the event and I was not disappointed. The first day we had: grilled chicken with herbs and lemon, roasted vegetarian pasta with parsley, roasted cauliflower, mirepoix quinoa, farmer's market salad with house-made vinaigrette. The second day we had roasted chicken with white wine sauce and chive, spaghetti squash with vegetable ragu, grilled carrots, farro, farmer's Market Salad with House-made Vinaigrette. If you need to fuel your brain and body with nutritious and delicious food this is the cater for you! More...

This 5 star review is way overdue! Eco caterers catered my son's wedding last November and the service and food for 160 people was impeccable.   From the initial tasting to finalizing menu items they were prompt, helpful and the food was delicious!  Service at the wedding was well staffed, water and bread was promptly replenished at the dinner tables. We selected a stationary cheese/charcuterie display which was artfully displayed and immediately consumed!  Tray passed hor dourves were well seasoned and at the appropiate temperature for the selections.  Thank you Eco caterers for a job well done!

I love Eco caters! My company has used them for a few events in the past, but the most recent was our holiday party this past Friday. They were so easy to work with, they have amazing vendor recommendations, great food and Christine our event coordinator was absolutely fantastic! She made sure to book everything for us, provided great suggestions and timed everything perfectly. Honestly if don't think this could have happened without her. My office was very impressed by the event. Eco made it seem seamless and easy to execute my Holiday Party vision. I am forever grateful! Thank you, Eco! More...

Eco Catering is AMAZING!!!. Jessica and Nick were a dream to work with. From the initial tasting to the night of the wedding, the food was fantastic. Nick explained the dishes at our tasting and helped us make our final food decisions. Jessica made sure each detail was taken care of and that our guests wouldn't be disappointed. After enjoying the food at the initial tasting, I had my concerns that this quality & taste could not be replicated on a mass level (160 wedding guests). But they came through on all levels and EVERYONE was raving about the awesome food. So many people commented on the quality and taste of all the dishes. I'd highly recommend these guys to cater your event. More...

Choosing Eco Caters for our wedding was an awesome choice. We met with multiple catering companies before making our decision and working with Nick, Emily, and Jess was a great experience! From the initial meeting where we did a food tasting, they catered to what we liked, their food was AMAZING, and we got many, many compliments on our food options during and after our wedding! We mainly worked with Jess for all the coordination and details related to our wedding and I cant say enough good things about how kind and helpful she was! I felt like we were in really good hands and I trusted the day of everything would happen that needed to, and it did! Thank you everyone for taking such good care of us and our guests! More...

To me, 5 stars means that nothing could have been better. From the get-go, Christine was responsive, attentive, and flexible, even before we had approved her proposal. Our event was for almost 100 guests, leaders from all across the country, in a mostly outdoor space. The caliber of food had to be high and the logistics were slightly complicated. However, Christine professionally and adroitly adapted to these challenges throughout the planning process and the event. Christine met with the venue a week before and set up the day before, to get ahead of any logistical considerations. When new challenges with the space arose, she fixed them promptly.Not only that, the guests were very impressed with the quality of the food and the display. I was impressed with how little thought I had to give to the catering logistics once I booked the event. Compared to other bids, Eco Caters was more expensive but high quality and professionalism came along with it, making the pricetag worth it. Working with Eco Caters was easy, low stress, and reflected well on my company. Highly recommended. More...

W Pico is a busy street but what saves it is Eco Catering. Food wise the chicken and waffles is the star. Yes they have mini beef sliders and mushroom taquitos but when all your guests go hmmmm that food presented us the star.Budget wise they are affordable for the mizers out there and the food matches the price. They are worth it. More...

My husband and I would highly recommend Eco Caters. Their team provided delicious menu items, flexibility, and creativity. Kristina was a joy to work with, and Chef Robbie is magic! We even discovered during our tasting that one of their newer chefs had left our favorite neighborhood spot to join Eco Caters. They incorporated our favorite dish from that same restaurant into our evening's menu. It was a thoughtful touch that help make our wedding even more personal. If you are looking for beautifully presented, locally sourced and delicious food for your event, look no further! More...

The team at Eco Catering are smart, professional, and truly talented at what they do. We had a seated dinner for ~130 at Dumbarton House in Georgetown - from start to finish I felt confident in the team to provide us with a quality meal that met our tastes and execute on the service side to ensure our guests had a great time. And at the end of that day that's what you'll appreciate the most - knowing the people who are handling a very important part of keeping everyone happy (food and drink) have what it takes to pull it off without a hitch.

Eco Caters was one of our FAVORITE wedding vendors. Everyone knows choosing your caterer is a large part of the wedding budget and that food is one of the larger parts of the guests' experience. So I was very, very picky when deciding on a caterer and was down to a couple favorites. However, when it came down to it, I chose Eco Caters because I absolutely love their food options and the fact that they're eco-friendly, organic, and overall a fresh, eclectic vibe. In addition to that, I really enjoyed working with Janee and Jessica. Part of what sealed the deal in terms of choosing them was heading to Ocean Beach to do a tasting, where I met the head chef and his wife, who run the business. They were super professional, and displayed that they had a great level of experience doing exactly what we were asking for. Their flexibility with the menu was HUGE for us, and allowed us to save here and there, which made a big difference for us and our budget. They did a great job with the bartending and making our specialty drink. I actually had a couple guests tell me they loved the bartenders themselves. That was a HUGE bonus because when employees are clearly happy doing what they are doing, even though it is hard work, that vibe reflects onto the wedding day experience, so I was happy to hear that bartenders/servers seemed pleasant and not just trying to get through the night ;). We also chose to have Jessica/Eco manage our rentals as well - which was a life saver. Jessica did a walk through of where we were getting married (San Diego Botanic Gardens) so that we could determine what was needed. I loved that she took the lead in telling me what was most common to do, what I didn't need, etc. The day went very smoothly, and guests raved about the food. I wish they had a restaurant so we could relive our wedding day tastes again. Thank you so much, Eco Caters! More...

Eco Caters helped us have a perfect wedding day. Their communication leading up to our big day was excellent, and they were attentive and accommodating during the dinner. But, the food is what really impressed us. Very few of our guests were Vegan/Veg, but everyone was blown away by the quality and by how great the food was! More...

Eco Caters did a fantastic job from start to finish.  My husband and I were impressed from the friendly welcoming vibe of our tasting, all the way through the process of giving us some seriously delicious food that all our guests raved about on our wedding day.  There were so many delicious options to choose from, and it was actually from looking at their menu choices that we came up with the whole theme of our wedding! With so many types of cuisine offered, it's hard not to be inspired and think outside the box.   And it was hugely helpful to hire Lauren as our coordinator, so she could guide us through the rentals and other details as well as oversee everything menu related.  She had the calmest, friendliest (and most capable) spirit throughout the process-- and especially on our wedding day.  And the bartenders and servers did too.  This is the vibe you want at your wedding (and as you plan it)--our day could not have gone better.

Had the opportunity to be at a wedding catered by Eco Caters and let me just say OMG! The food that I had at this wedding was simply amazing! I saw that there was a sliced beef roast and I was already thinking that I should have brought some dental floss. But this was the most tender beef that I have ever had! Both in sourcing of meat and preparation, I was impressed.  The staff was on top of things all night long as well.  The Events Coordinator, Lauren, was super awesome too!  So happy to have experienced one of their events!

We used Eco Catering for a 175 person annual Awards Ceremony and I cannot say enough good things about them. From start to finish, working with them was a breeze. Our contact, Lauren, went above and beyond her role and even helped us with other logistics. Their staff was amazing, so friendly and warm with our guests, and the food was delicious!

We got married at Castle Green in May and cannot thank Castle Catering enough for helping facilitate it from start to finish.  We had to email and meet with a few caterers to see if we could even afford a wedding at the beautiful Castle Green and once we talked to Ron and Starla, we knew it could happen! They were SO accomodating and reasonable.  We used the restaurant partner program and got delicious food from Green Street Restaurant in Pasadena.  Starla was easily the best communicator through the entire wedding planning process and super easy to work with.  And Ron did everything he could to make all the details perfect. The service was wonderful, bartending was exceptional (take his advice and have the alcohol delivered by Bill at the Bottle Shop!!), and they just made sure we got everything we needed.  Duane handled all the extra details on the week of and truly went above and beyond the call of duty. THANK YOU! More...

Eco Caters catered our wedding in August and we could not have been more thrilled with both the quality of the food and the graciousness of the service. We opted for a buffet lunch with passed hors-d'oeuvres for the cocktail hour. Every single item was beautifully presented and a hit with guests - many of them remarking to us weeks later how it was some of the best food they had ever had a wedding. It was elegant without being fussy. The brisket was fantastic, the vegetables were seasonal and fresh and they took mac & cheese to whole new level. They were thoughtful enough to set aside plates for my groom and me to be sure that we didn't miss out anything while we were busy talking and greeting guests. They made sure everyone's glasses were filled and overall provided exceptional attention to service & detail. They go above and beyond to make sure that your event is as special as it can be.

Wow. There are no words to describe how amazing Eco Caters is.We just had our wedding in August and Eco Caters was the easiest and one of my favorite vendors to work with. I'm so happy with their service and of course, food.Eco Caters provided the best wedding food I've ever had, and I'm not being biased. All our guests were raving about how delicious the food was. Even my parents, who are the biggest critics in food. We decided to go with the short rib and salmon and wow, they were cooked perfectly. The short rib fat was like gravy and you didn't even need a knife to dig in. The salmon was so tasty too and not dry and overcooked like most places. I was so excited that I had leftovers to take home after the wedding. Still tasted amazing the day after!Many were also saying the appetizers were amazing and they ate too many and were so full after the entree that they barely had space for our late night snack of In-N-Out! The staff were very attentive as well and greeted all my guests with a smile. More importantly, Lauren, the operations director, was sooo patient and charismatic and answered all my questions throughout the process. She was such a delight to work with and had such a positive attitude. Eco Caters was overall such a smart group to work with -- they strategically planned the layout of our dessert table and did not toss our uneaten food. I've heard too many brides and grooms complain they weren't able to eat any food because they get cleaned up and the servers specifically brought us appetizers, snacks, desserts, drinks, etc. to us to make sure we were fed!Thank you so much!!

I worked with Castle Catering on a recent wedding. The staff were amazing. The positive energy and attention to detail made the event that much better. Ron and Duane did a marvelous job even with the tall order they had to fill. As an event planner working with professional staff that are reliable is key to any event success. Ron always answered my thousand questions and made sure the event was executed down to the smallest of details. If you are looking for an amazing team then Castle catering is your company! More...

Eco Caters is amazing and their food is SO yummy!  I have worked with them a few times at different events and they are such a pleasure to work with.  They know what they are talking about during planning, answer your questions quickly via email, and then on site they are a dream.  Their staff is professional, presentable, on time and very nice.  They aren't just some random people staring blankly at you who don't know the first thing about serving.  With Eco, I don't need to worry about the staff not doing their jobs or being on their phones the entire time.  Such a relief!  All the guests always rave about the food too!  It is really tasty and they can accommodate gluten free and dairy free and vegans alike.  If you want excellent food, great service and someone who's nice to work with, I can't recommend Eco enough!

I am a catering server and It has been my pleasure to serve food from dozens of caterers in Los Angeles and at hundreds of events including the Emmy Awards and the Espys. I must say that after serving one time at an event catered by Eco Caters they are among my top recommendations!Not only are the Eco Catering staff a pleasure to work with the food is soooo yummy! I was shocked to learn that everything was homemade and to sample the menu was definitely a treat! The mashed potatoes are so delicious and don't even need toppings and the beef was so tender it melted in my mouth! I was blown away! Don't let the family feel of this catering company fool you!

Simply Lunch has been the best thing that has happened to our office! We used to get lots of sandwiches, pizza, pastas etc. that left everyone feeling lethargic and in a food coma unable to concentrate on work. Simply Lunch changed that so much and leaves me feeling satisfied but not over-satiated.As someone who is always incredibly conscious of the quality of produce and only buys organic produce and meat at the grocery store, Simply Lunch has made me feel SO much better about what I am putting into my body while at work. Now I don't have to rely on bringing lunch with me and meal prepping because these are actually meals I would cook at home!It's so important to have a well-rounded lunch and one that fuels me for long work days and I could not be happier with the meals! We've gotten some of the most gourmet meals - some of us even mentioned how a few have been better than our Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners - it's THAT good. Think of Simply Lunch as a gourmet home-made meal but catered right to your office... could not ask for anything more!! More...

What can I say? Simply Lunch has simply been the best thing to happen to our lunches in our office. We went from previously having a scattered array of choices, ranging from the light to the extremely heavy, to now having much-needed consistency and focus on our HEALTH more than anything. Being in an office where we spend much of our day behind a computer screen, it is imperative that we take care of ourselves in as many ways possible.... especially when it comes to what we put in our bodies!Simply Lunch from EcoCaters has really been a game-changer in my energy levels and overall satisfaction with my dietary choices at the end of the day. Heck, I'm eating beautiful salads almost every day now! Quite the change for me, in the best way possible.Whats even better, I don't think we've had a repeat meal over the last 6 months we've been getting our lunches catered in office! Can't beat that variety.The convenience is also a nice factor here, where the EcoCaters staff comes in at the same time each day, sets everything we need up, and is off in the blink of an eye. No fuss, no mess. The same person then returns a few hours later to collect the supplies and clean up after themselves. Convenience level is truly through the roof.I would recommend EcoCaters and their Simply Lunch services to anyone who is willing to listen. They have truly shifted my perspective on what lunch catering should mean! More...

We have Simply Lunch catered to our office 4 days a week and I am so thankful! Prior to SL, we had a variety of restaurants providing our lunch catering and more often than not, the lunches provided were filled with chemicals or were extremely unhealthy. I love knowing that my lunch is made from real and organic ingredients! The best part about Simply Lunch is their ability to adapt the menu based on our feedback. We are able to share some of our favorite lunches and have those options more frequently. They also can adhere to dietary restrictions or make a special festive lunch for holidays like Thanksgiving or St. Patrick's Day.  Some of my personal favorites have been the hearty soups, chicken curry, and stuffed bell peppers!

Since our office started catering Simply Lunch I've noticed a more positive vibe in the air. It's true, you are what you eat. By offering employees fresh and nutritious food you can see how it influences energy levels. When you go from eating a Simply Lunch meal it's hard to go back to anything else. I've been working on my health in the last year and I've been very conscious of what I put in my body. With the fresh organic ingredients that Eco Caters uses I know I'm treating myself right and don't worry if I'm eating healthy. I More...

I was the day-of coordinator for a couple that had their wedding at Castle Green. The Castle Catering staff was absolutely amazing! They provided amazing service, their staff went above and beyond to make sure that the bride and groom were taken care of. As a vendor, you work with a lot of catering companies, but this was by far one of my most positive experiences. I strongly recommend them! More...

It was such a pleasure working with Ron and Starla. They were very professional and very accommodating to our requests. Duane and all the wait staff were so attentive and courteous during our event that all we were able to do was have fun! It went so smoothly that if we were to do it all over again, we would still pick Castle Catering to do our event! It was such a great experience! More...

Could not have been happier with my experience with Eco Caters. As a vegan who was planning a wedding for over 200 non-vegans, I was really torn between pleasing my guests and adhering to my ethics. Eco Caters executed the wedding of my dreams that pleased my guests with food I felt proud to serve. I should start out my saying that we had originally hired - and paid for - another cater who assured us a vegan wedding was no problem. When we did the tasting 6 weeks before the wedding we were horrified as it was the hands down worst food I have ever tasted in my life. This is from a yelp 5-star cater. I called and got quotes from a bunch of caters and the entire process was so stressful a few weeks out from the wedding. But it was Eco Cater to the rescue! In a matter of weeks, we were able to plan the wedding menu of my dreams! They were so professional from initial phone call to final execution. Our tasting was AMAZING!!!! 100% organic and mostly vegan (we ended up serving a grass fed local cheese plate and a line-caught sustainable fish option at my dad - who was paying for the wedding - request). I felt so good about the quality of the food - you could taste the difference - and the love with which it was prepared. The presentation was beautiful as well!!!Not only was the food delicious, but their staff so professional and easy to work with. Completely top notch. I also found the prices very reasonable, especially considering the food was 100% organic and mostly local. Hire without a second though! The minute you do your tasting you will be glad you did!!!!

Mary and the team at Eco Caterers were amazing. They coordinated our food, alcohol and event rentals. Mary was responsive and helpful in brainstorming ideas. And the food was delicious! We had vegan, vegetarian and meat items. Plus, the bill was far less than other caterers quoted us. They're a great team and we loved working with them! More...

My husband and I just got married a month ago! We had a church wedding and our reception at Castle Catering-The Romanesque Room. The goal for our wedding was: a beautiful atmosphere (great backdrop for our wonderful photographer), delicious food (we had mediterranean by Vic), great music, and an open bar. We wanted to have an intimate guest list (75) and go very simple on decorations and flowers so we can spend more money on those main things, and with such an gorgeous venue we were able to do that. Even though we had 75 guests, the venue was set up so well that it didn't feel too big for the amount of people that were there. The extra perk of this venue was the people we worked with to make our wedding day happen: Starla, Ron, Duane, and the rest of the amazing servers. We had a little less than 6 months to plan our wedding, but they made it so simple and easy. Communication was amazing, we were always able to coordinate our schedules to meet with Ron (especially since I was driving up from Orange County), and they helped us save money where we could (food, flowers, and having an open bar!). They know what they're doing and are very good at it! When we got to our reception, we waited in a room before we did our grand entrance and they set up tons of water and appetizers that all our guests were eating during cocktail hour and we had plates of food already served for us waiting at our table after the entrance and first dance, and we actually got to eat! My husband and I would look at each other throughout the evening and just glow from how beautiful and smoothly everything turned out. Definitely worth the money. We are so grateful! Thank you!!

We were both surprised by how much we enjoyed the Vegetable Pad Thai as neither of us are vegetarians. We also loved that Eco Caterers offers the freedom to customize a menu to our tastes rather than something set in stone. We are so excited to have the perfect catering company for our wedding!

We recently used Eco for a 50-person wedding dinner, and couldn't have been happier.  Their philosophy really appealed to us, but the major selling point was the food: they say you don't get to eat at your own wedding, but if you use Eco, you'll certainly want to make sure you do.  Every single bite was delicious, and they were happy to work with us to accommodate some guests with restrictive diets, and to work in some special desserts prepared by someone else.  Mary and her crew made the entire process a breeze--everything was set up quickly and beautifully (and removed equally quickly at the end of the night) and all of the servers were friendly and extremely professional.  Mary also served as our day-of-coordinator and was great.  She was responsive, communicated well with our other vendors, and independently handled all of the last-minute problems.  Absolutely wonderful experience!

I am so happy we got to work with Castle Catering for our wedding at Castle Green. Love the convenience of them being next door. They truly made our experience enjoyable. Ron and Starla are great people to work with. Starla is so helpful and responsive to emails. That is a huge plus for a bride looking for timely responses. Ron is so informative and gives thorough details on all the options. All options are great and you really do get a good deal compared to other catering services. Their food was absolutely delicious. As a busy bride I was mingling during cocktail hour and they put some appetizers in the bridal room, which was so nice and thoughtful. I'm so thankful I got to enjoy some delicious appetizers (pot stickers & coconut shrimp) to hold me over for dinner. Our dinner was so good all our guests raved about it (tri tip & lemon chicken) The staff was so friendly and very attentive making sure everything was good the entire wedding. They did a great job helping my day of coordinator set up the ceremony and reception. I am so thankful Castle Catering was a helping hand in making our wedding truly one of the best days! More...

We just got married a few weeks ago at Castle Green.  Castle Catering is one of the preferred vendors and they're conveniently right next door so I contacted them. Starla, answered my  emails promptly. She coordinated the meetings with Ron. I was already pleased with the customer service via email and meeting with Ron sealed the deal. After the meeting I knew we were in good hands. Ron and Starla have 30 plus years experience. The meeting was very informative and I felt very comfortable with what they had to offer as our caterers for our big day. Moving forward throughout the months prior to the wedding Starla was great about answering any questions with helpful and honest answers. Our wedding was perfect and Castle Catering played a big part in it. The food was delicious. From appetizers to our dinner. I recommend the pot stickers, coconut shrimp, tri-tip and lemon chicken. As Bride and Groom we enjoyed our food so much we ate our whole plate. The staff was extremely professional and friendly. They worked so well with my day of Coordinator.  It was so nice to have staff constantly check in to make sure all was good.  I can't thank Ron, Starla, and the entire Castle Catering enough for making sure everything was smooth sailing and delicious for our day.  I would love to work with them again, whenever we have any future catering needs. Thank you again!! More...

We had our wedding at Castle Green and after much research decided to go with Castle Catering. We wanted to have a vegan wedding, and Ron is able to do a restaurant partnership program so we used Eco Caters to provide the food and Ron provided all of the service, setting up the buffet, the bars, etc. From the beginning it was such a pleasure working with him and Starla. They are very professional and responsive to my many (many) emails. It's like having a wonderful uncle looking out for you on your wedding day. They were very fair in their pricing and tried to work with us and our budget. Everything went very smoothly on the big day and if you're having a wedding at Castle Green you just can't beat Ron's experience with that venue and the fact that his office is right next door. It made for a very smooth experience. Shout out to Duane, who was also so wonderful to work with! We also took Ron's advice to work with The Bottle Shop in providing the alcohol for our event, they have a partnership with Castle Catering which made that part of our event so much easier and more affordable. We highly recommend Castle Catering! More...

We used Eco Caters to provide the food for our wedding at Castle Green (their preferred caterer, Castle Catering, provided the service). We chose them because we are big fans of Spork Foods and knew that they could provide us with an elegant vegan menu to serve to 100 meat loving guests. It was exactly what we wanted- "classy" comfort food! Our guests were probably worried they'd be eating salad and carrot sticks all night, but they were amazed by the portobello cordon bleu, the pasta with porcini meatballs, the buttermilk ranch mashed potatoes and the pistachio pesto brown rice (many of which were also gluten free!) Not to mention the veggie sushi and the spinach artichoke dip appetizers which were as beautiful as they were delicious. We had many guests say to us "if everything I ate was like your wedding food, I could be a vegan." We loved opening our guests eyes to the possibilities of a delicious vegan lifestyle and thank Eco Caters so much for giving them and us a great experience :) More...

As the bride and groom, we were checked on frequently and they asked us if we needed anything. Our guests also had very good things to say about them. Thank you Ron and your team for being so good to us. On a day when everything was so hectic for us, it was great to see that you and your staff take great care in what they do. Cheers!

Lauren and the entire team at eco-caters were incredible to work with. They were great about communication and very professional and always quick to respond. They were referred to us by the lovely ladies at Spork foods because we wanted an entirely vegan wedding and both Spork and eco-caters were phenomenal about creating a wonderful and delicious vegan menu. They were so amazing, at some point I couldn't believe that they were doing all of this for the price we paid. Many non-vegans who came to our wedding raved about The food despite preconceive notions about what vegan food entails. Our wedding was a month ago and we still get comments about the food. The staff was incredibly nice and professional and discreet. Could not recommend them enough. More...

Well, we are super glad we chose Castle Catering to take care of us for our wedding last Friday! We found Castle Green through The Knot, and when we set up with them, Castle Catering (not related, just same building which is REALLLLY convienent in these times) was their preferred vendor for all the food and drink things. Ron and Starla are the sweetest and caring people and get things done to the T. Keep it simple, no funny business. They aren’t like most catering companies because they have restaurant partners. So instead of being stuck with just one kind of thing, they accommodate to different clients which is amazing in California. They also helped us pick where to go for our bar alcohol, which is all nearby. Everything went perfectly and the team was happy about our Star Wars wedding. Our guests raves about the service and food, made all the work and money invested all worth the while. Highly recommend, just contact them already ;) More...

Eco Caters catered my small backyard wedding in late June 2017 and they did a spectacular job. Mary and team were so communicative, so accommodating, and so friendly, from start to finish. After our initial tasting, we had some feedback and they were very open to making changes to fit our taste and vision. Mary was also super helpful in guiding me through making menu and rental selections while staying in budget. On the day of the wedding, everything was perfect. They arrived early, set everything up according to plan, the food was delicious and exactly what we had envisioned (including gluten-free pitas and bagels! That were actually good!). The presentation was lovely, and the staff was super efficient and friendly. We're so glad we hired them and would do so again in a heartbeat. More...

Lauren and team assembled the most beautiful woodland wedding for one of my close friends.An already beautiful venue was made even more so with whimsical and rustic details - succulent terrariums, string lights, and a hand-crafted wooden archway where the bride and groom said their vows. And the food was amazing! Mashed potatoes, sauteed kale, chicken, steak, Mexican street corn, and deconstructed peach cobbler for dessert (instead of the traditional wedding cake.) So good. It really was a magical experience and I will be recommending Lauren and Eco Caters to others in the future. More...

Mary Gorman and the team at Eco are in our opinion a cut above the rest. I could not imagine a more accommodating, professional, easy going, generous, client-focused and hard-working production staff -- back to front of the house and bartenders -- each person approached their role with integrity and seriousness and a certain amount of passion. Needless to say, weddings rarely go exactly according to plan. And ours was by no means an exception to that rule; especially when you consider that we took it upon ourselves to do all of the planning, Mary went out of her way to provide insights and tips on manifold details that we, as novices, would have otherwise missed. Many things were up in the air (not least of them bar service) until the last minute. Furthermore, you have to understand the city shut down the cul-de-sac leading to our venue pushing all of the setting-up back by two hours forcing us to extend the cocktail hour etc. etc. -- Eco rolled with the punches, adjusted in times for bartenders and stretched the passed hors d'oeuvres.... Okay, so I'm rambling, final word: Amazing More...

This review is long overdue. My wife and I got married on Jan, 13 at Castle Green and i have to say the best part of the whole experience was working with Ron and his team.We met Ron at the wedding vendor open house that Castle Green hosts during the beginning of the year and he hooked us with a mashed potato martini. From the get-go Ron was polite and professional. He gave us information about his operation and his staff as well as the a general guideline for pricing. My wife and I were pretty much sold from the moment we walked away from his table.The following month we contacted Ron about hiring him as our caterer and it was smooth sailing from there. We always received prompt responses from Ron and Starla and they are GREAT about meeting after normal business hours to accommodate those working an 8-5 job. Every meeting was informative and he liked to keep things flexible when planning because he knows people change their minds about things. He really is a pro.When the time comes for deposits and food choices Ron makes sure that you are happy and understand everything that you are agreeing to. There is no lack of communication at all and Ron allows for changes throughout the process. At the tasting Duane is very informative about the selections and they give useful input about their dining options as well as the pros and cons of having too much or too little food. They really do not "sell" you on anything which is nice.We ended up ordering the stuffed mushrooms and coconut shrimp appetizer, Caesar salad, tri-tip and pecan crusted chicken entrees and mashed potatoes, vegetable medley and rice as sides, with a delightful vegetable wellington as an option for vegetarians. With the buffet style layout you save money and the process is seamless. The way the buffet is set up really lends itself well to the space and they do their best to decorate a bit and dress up the area so that is is not just food on a table. The service really matches the venue, which was amazing. When it comes time to serve Ron and his team really shine, they get everyone their food and move through the whole area seamlessly. They even go above and beyond to make sure everyone has what they need (of course, my dad wanted hot sauce... and they brought him three different kinds!).Aside from the catering, Ron can provide you with linens, specialty glassware, meals for kids, and bar service. He even lets you use his abundance of event decorations and props FOR FREE. Ron is seriously the best option if you're having your wedding at Castle Green, I cant say this enough. I wish I could have parties there all the time just to work with him. There's a reason he's been in business so long.TL;DR: Ron and his team make the catering process, arguably one of the most complicated things about a wedding, a breeze. They serve great food and have a ton of options to choose from at affordable prices. More...

Castle Catering catered my wedding at castle green over a month ago and they were fantastic! I used their restaurant partner program for the entree but had them cater the appetizers which were delicious. They have a large inventory of items for you to borrow free of charge for decor. Also, if you are getting married at castle green, a bonus is that you can store stuff with castle catering before or after. On the day of, they even make sure you get to eat by bringing your appetizers to wherever you're taking pictures and serving you at your table. Ron is warm, kind and professional. He puts you at ease whenever you meet in person. Starla is your main contact via email and she was always quick to reply.  I knew our wedding was in capable hands and everything went perfectly!

He puts you at ease whenever you meet in person. Starla is your main contact via email and she was always quick to reply. I knew our wedding was in capable hands and everything went perfectly!

Eco Catering was by-far the best vendor we had at our wedding. (Also professionally I am an event planner, and Eco Catering was the best vendor I have ever worked with.)

Mary Gorman is a rock star of a human being. She was SUPER organized, she gave excellent wedding planning advice, and she went way above and beyond her duties as the catering manager. Working with Eco Caters couldn't have been easier since Mary was so responsive, knowledgeable, and frankly just an enjoyable person to be around.

And of course the food was AMAZING! Many of our guests commented on how they had never had such delicious and original food at a wedding. None of that standard plain pasta and caesar salad stuff (though I am sure they do an excellent pasta and caesar salad). It was custom created just for us based on our food interests and dietary restrictions of our guests.

The staff were so nice and easy going. They were extremely attentive to our guests and couldn't have been friendlier.

They were great at working within our budget as well. Compared to other caterers we looked at, they provided a better service at a better price.

Thank you Eco Caters for making our wedding so special. I wish we could do it all over again!

John, Chef Wood, and the Eco Caters team made the experience planning our wedding fun and enjoyable. We loved getting to know them, their company, and their values. They have great relationships with so many local companies and we enjoyed the associated benefits. A favorite moment from our wedding was when John's team made us a plate of the AMAZING cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres and my husband and I enjoyed a quiet moment together. From beginning to end John and his team were determined to exceed our expectations, and they did. More...

AMAZING! John Cosgrove, Mary, and Robbie the chef created a delicious, fresh and experience for my daughter's wedding. The guests raved about the food. The staff was exceptional and professional attending to every need with a smile and kind word. The set up was beautiful and they did many personal touches that reflected the family's style. They made sure the bride, groom, and maid of honor had warm fresh food given all the distraction they have with the guests. Eco-caterings attention to detail and delicious food with a flair made the evening one to remember. I would recommend Eco-Catering for any event you are considering. More...

I hired Eco Caters, not for a wedding but for a Celebration of Live memorial and was thrilled with everything. I would definitely hire them also for a wedding. While the Memorial was at another location, the reception was at my home and the caterers were there cooking the food all that time. So, when I and my guests arrived home we were greeted with the most delicious aromas wafting from my kitchen. My guests couldn't stop raving about the food which included an amazing blueberry chicken and mouth-watering beef brisket. The grilled veggies were cooked to perfection. And the baby apples were adorable and delicious. I was so impressed with the staff who picked up after my guests so that no dirty plates lingered. Plus, because of the generous amounts, the staff neatly packed all of the leftovers into my storage food containers. The kitchen was cleaned up as well. It was a perfect day! Thank you Eco Caters!

Planning a wedding from across the country could prove difficult if not for having such an amazing, reliable, flexible and responsive caterer team like Eco!! They have taken away all the stress in pulling off a destination wedding, handling every challenge with care and grace and communicating with me constantly. I am so excited to see how it all pulls together but am extremely confident it will be an amazing weekdend for me, my fiance and all my guests. Thank you Emily and Janae! More...

The first thing I recognized that showed an honest relationship is that Ron and Starla have been in this business for over 30 years. They responded promptly to our emails, questions and gave us great ideas and information on celebrating weddings; after all, it was my first wedding and hopefully my last. I loved that they had a great relationship with other restaurants as other options for catering and were flexible with is coming in for our photographer to look around. The staff was amazing and we even pulled them in for our dessert time and our photo booth :). The pricing is unbeatable in comparison to any other venue their size. It was like working with the fun uncle who was also morally responsible and made sure you had a good time. He had a great relationship with The Bottle Shoppe in Sierra Madre and got the best deal in our liquor.

The set up was amazing, they even got a head start in my tables and allowed me to throw down my centerpieces early. The DJ also had a standing relationship with the venue as well and it turned out wonderfully, everyone having a good time on the dance floor. They even brought uplighting we didn't really need but had extras and free of charge. They loved working at that venue, so I was happy to have all these close knit businesses help make my husband's special day even more amazing. They gave us so many options and helped me figure the colour lay out for the table clothes and set up. I couldn't ask for a better moment in my life.

I'm sorry that this review is all over the place, but I couldn't honestly brag any more about how lucky we were to find this place. There was alot of places we looked at for our venue but for me, someone who didn't like to plan anything, or even know how to start planning a party, they made it easy and beautiful.

I cannot begin to tell you how amazing Eco Caters is!  They catered our wedding and the food was DELICIOUS.  They were also the most economical choice of all the proposals we received.  Lauren was our coordinator and was is a superstar.  She was born to lead and has an assertive style that is not aggressive.  She seemed to just magically appear whenever needed.  And she thought of EVERYTHING. The servers were all kind and sweet and we feel LUCKY to have gotten to work with these guys.  Thank you for everything!!! More...

Eco Caters was a dream to work with for our special day.  We were so glad to find a local company that was committed to using local, organic ingredients while still creating delicious and memorable cuisine. They were able to accommodate our bizarre food requests, stay within our budget, and communicate graciously with us every step of the way.  I am so glad we found them and had their help in making the day as seamless as possible.  Oh, and everyone at the wedding mentioned afterwards how amazing the food was!

With heaps of experience under his belt, EcoCaters' head chef Nick not only delivers an incredible creative menu that will wow your guests, but his team also makes planning and execution, from glassware to seating and decor, a cinch. They actually make it fun! Who knew? The company's local farm to fork focus was a big tick for us, and we loved the fact that they worked really hard to come up with a package that fit our budget. We were delighted with the EcoCaters team from the start and were confident we'd get a great result, and we did. More...

My husband and I had an amazing experience with Eco Caters! We hired them to cater a house warming party for our friends that we had just sold a house to. We wanted to do something special to thank them for trusting us as their realtors. The food at the party was absolutely delicious and we could not be happier with the whole experience. The entire staff at Eco Caters was very professional and friendly. We will definitely be recommending Eco Caters and using them again. Thank you for making the party such a success! More...

My advice if you are looking for a caterer for any event is call Eco Caters!! We used them a little over a year ago for our wedding and could not have been any happier. I had no idea what to expect from a catering company and they blew me out of the water. We had already had one tasting with another company and left feeling uneasy about the food quality and level of service. We lined up a few more tastings and next on the list was Eco. After a few emails to figure out a tasting menu and the tasting itself, we cancelled all the other appointments. Lauren Sullivan is the main contact who helped us through all the months of planning. She is AMAZING! She is so thorough, attentive, and eases any worry or stress an event can so easily bring on. We found that Lauren/Eco go out of their way not only to prepare a farm-to-table delicious experience for you and your guests, but also help you with rentals and overall planning. They make your whole experience so easy I really can't rave about them enough. At our tasting everything was delivered with explanation, down to where they got the ingredients and variations of different options we could chose from. Our guests still talk about our food a year later.

On the other side of things my friend and his now husband called in a panic, overwhelmed with the lack of planning they had achieved a few months before their wedding. In asking for advice the only thing I told him was call Eco and your stress will be almost non existent. He did and raved just as much about his experience with them. Being a guest at his wedding I was down right impressed, once again with how amazing the food was. The food they serve literally feels like you are at a restaurant ordering for two, not a meal prepared for a large quantity of wedding food.

Definitely call Eco Caters, they truly made my wife and I's day beyond anything we could have ever dreamt up by ourselves!!

What can i say, Ron and Starla Hobbs Are the most sweetest, caring, loving understanding good kind-hearted people i have ever met in my entire life! we met with Ron and Starla about a month ago and fell in love with the two of them! they are such a beautiful couple! Starla has become my very own personal mentor and counselor, wedding planning is very stressful and just talking with her helps me out a lot, i find myself emailing her about a lo of thing, she is very helpful. the Venue itself is gorgeous, it was love at first site! my Fiance propose to me at the Arcadia arboretum so we wanted to have our wedding there but the arboretum has been a huge disappointment, the communication with the coordinator has been so frustrating and a huge turn off, whereas Starla has been absolutely amazing on reaching out to us and has made life so much better, so being torn between the beautiful arboretum where the love of my life got down on one knee and asked me and the Romanesque Room where the reception venue is vintage and gorgeous i couldn't decide between the two so my lovely fiance came up with the best idea and that was to have both venues feature our wedding! the arboretum for the ceremony and the Romanesque for the reception, and that made this bride-to-be the happiest woman in the world to have both venues and not to mention they are very close in distance from each other. as we told Ron and starla about the issues we were having at the arboretum they assured us that if Arcadia didn't work out we can always have our ceremony there no mater the circumstances, and that was a huge weight lifted. we are still having communication issues with the arboretum so we are looking for other ceremony venues in the are so we can still have our reception at the beautiful Romanesque Room august 4th 2017 (wedding date) . but if we do not we will definitely have both here! i am still trying to keep hope and faith alive with the arboretum. thank you so much Ron and Starla! xoxo Alona More...

We hired Chef Nick from Eco Caterers for our daughters wedding on 10-29-16 and it was without a doubt the best food we've ever had at a wedding...and probably the best steak I've had anywhere! Considering they worked out of our kitchen in a beach rental house (nothing fancy) but you wouldn't have known it from the food. Then the service was beyond our expectations...absolutely the best all around experience!!! Thank you Nick and Tyler for a wonderful evening and such an important part of the whole day! More...

We had our wedding here on October 8th,2016. Everything is so perfect! Love the way that Ron runs his business. Not like some of other venues, Romanesque doesn't have any hidden cost, Ron explained everything clearly.
"Restaurant partnership" program is very helpful! We had a full open and opened from cocktail hour to the end, which only costed us less than $8.00 per guest. Such a good deal!
Ron and his team are wonderful. They really care about the customers, took care of them and tried the best to meet their requirement.

It is incredibly important for all vendors to have good communication and work as a team.  Lauren is truly an experienced professional who is knowledgeable and always quick to respond to inquiries, phone calls and emails.The food is always amazing too.  The other day, us vendors enjoyed a delicious chicken, lasagna and salad meal.  I will definitely be recommending Eco Caters should my clients ever need a catering recommendation.Thank you Eco Caters for being so wonderful to work with!

So my wife and I had our wedding on October 1, 2016 and hired Castle Catering as our catering company.  We were having our wedding at Castle Green, which is next door (the positives of this is enormous).  We interviewed several catering companies and all of them were expensive and didn't to have that "mom and pop" type service.  I'm sure they were competant, but for the amount, some wanted over $100k for food and catering!  Castle Catering was certainly the cheapest we found, but that's NOT a bad thing.  I met with Ron (he's a super super super old man who says he's really good at golf, but he isn't...i hope Ron is reading this btw) to go over our wedding plans.  We sat in his office and he kindly offered my wife and I drinks and got down to business.  He's been working in the industry for 30 or so years, so his knowledge is very vast. He's seen and done everything already.  Also, being in the industry that long, he has a ton of items in his inventory, which he's willing to let you use FOR FREE as it doesn't cost him a dime to let you rent it.  Although he did offer some of his antique stuff like his 8 track, VCR, and other old stuff nobody cares about, we kindly rejected those items (j/k Ron).  Ron and his wife Starla were pleasant to work with, although I didn't see much of Starla as all she did was boss him around and took off.  He was just as sarcastic as my wife and I, so we had a great relationship.  We ended up hiring him and his crew and went over our wedding in detail.  He's very detail oriented and very accomodating.  He has the connections with all the other vendors around there and we actually ended up hiring his alchohol guy.We ended up renting outdoor ceremony chairs (really cheap, i think $2 per), linens, napkins for a small fee and used his arch for the ceremony, all his 6 foot tables, cake stand, dessert stand, 40" television for free!  We used Ocean Star Restaurant as our restaurant of choice and he worked with them beautifully.  Everything went perfect food-wise (I think I caught Ron at our dessert table sneaking some bundtcakes back to his office).  The tables were set beautifully where we got compliments about how it looked like royalty.We were able to bring a lot of our stuff (pictures, easles, candy station jars, candy, desserts, clothes, linen, etc) and store them in his room next door (Romanesque room; a totally different ballroom than Castle Green) for free!  They let us put our stuff there for nearly a week.  They even offered for us to eat, drink in their ballroom as we weren't allowed to eat or drink alchohol at Castle Green until the reception started.  Conveniently, they were located 15 steps away from Castle Green.  We were also allowed to keep our items at their room until the following week, which we picked up 3 days later.We met with Ron several times before the wedding and they went through all the details to perfection.  Come wedding day, everything was PERFECT on their end.  I made a boo boo and forgot to get vendor meals.  Duane (one of Ron's right hand guys) was the supervisor I believe for our venue as he says "His job here is so Ron doesn't have to be."  Duane hooked it up and took care of all our vendors LAST MINUTE.  I don't even think they charged us for that.  I even requested with Ron to use fresh squeezed oranges for the groom's choice of drink (screwdriver - we called it 'screw'd (when I said 'i do') driver) instead of the crappy Tropicana brand or whatever cheap stuff most people use.  Know what Ron did? He had a big jug of orange juice that was fresh squeezed at the bar....A bunch of my friends raved on how good the screwdriver tasted.  I just would love to see a video of Ron squeezing each orange one by one, cussing my name out and spitting in my OJ hoping I'd drink all of it.  The passed out appetizers were delicious and believe it or not, their coffee got a lot of high reviews from my guests..Ron was right, I never thought Folgers would get such high reviews, but I've had half a dozen people tell me how good it was.Towards the end of the night, one of the bridesmaids got super hammered and I have no idea how, went into their Romanesque room and slept on their couch.  Duane made sure she was okay, put a blanket on her, and told us where she was.  He even offered to take his truck around and take us to our hotel at the Sheraton just so she's safe.  You can't find people like this anymore..the mom and pop style is rare nowadays.  We ended up being able to get her and uber to our hotel.But in summary, best customer service, cheap price with great quality, and just pure professionalism who you can talk to as a friend.  I'm sad it's over and we won't see as much of Ron, Duane, and Starla, but we're local and plan to visit to say hi.  PS...if you bring Ron those taco bell cinirolls, he'll give you discounts...he'll do anything for those.

Just great people to work with. Words can't describe how accommodating and how friendly they are. I won't be able to squeeze everything in weddingwire's short review box, but Ron, Starla, and Duane are just good people who have that "mom & pop" style service. They were the cheapest amongst the other catering companies, but not sacrificing quality of service and product. The price they gave you is the price you pay (minus the rentals), including cake cutting fees, corkage fee, etc. I'd highly recommend using this company, especially if you are having an event at Castle Green in Pasadena, CA. They'll work with ANY vendors, restaurants, bakeries, etc. You don't need to have them be the restaurant providing the food. More...

Whenever I had a question or concern, she was on it or already had it taken care of. The team was so helpful the day of, and the food was delicious! Nick and team are excellent chefs.

Every employee we worked with was patient, understanding, and insightful. Including the servers the night of the wedding! They were passionate about the service and actually seemed happy to be there serving us! And the food. Wow!! It was fresh, beautiful presentation and so delicious. I loved knowing that our food was locally sourced and that the company was environmentally conscious. The guests loved our biodegradable bamboo plates! Lastly, our amazing day of coordinator, Lauren. She put me at ease throughout the whole process and the day went so smoothly. I can't recommend this company enough. want to have another event just so I can work with Eco again! More...

We sampled many caterers but were immediately impressed by the quality of the food at EcoCaters. We sat down at our tasting and found Emily to be delightful, down to earth and helpful.  She had many great ideas to help us save on the overall cost of the event and offered ideas about how to best accommodate our request to serve food family style. At our walk through, Emily offered a number of great ideas and options for the layout.  Our friend volunteered to be our wedding planner and she's mentioned several times how much she appreciated working with Emily on the day-of details. Our friend/wedding planner said that during the ceremony the table containing our cocktail appetizers fell because the ground had been wet and sunk under the weight of the table, causing the dishes and the food to come crashing down.  Somehow they managed the whole situation without us knowing and our guests still had wonderful appetizers to enjoy.  Emily was graceful and professional when there was a minor snafu with vendor meals (bartender brought several more staff than he said he would). They also handled a delicate situation with one of our guests who needed special arrangements.The food was delicious, and unique! We added colorful fruit and herb infused water dispensers, which were set up as guests arrived and were then transitioned to the cocktail hour and the reception. The appetizer display was beautifully presented at our rustic outdoor wedding. We absolutely loved the blueberry chipotle chicken and the stuffed peppers for dinner. We had sides of roasted potatoes and vegetables which tasted fresh and flavorful (not rubbery like other caterers we tried).  Many of our guests commented about how much they enjoyed the food. Thank you, EcoCaters, for making our wedding day such a special one!  If we ever need a caterer again in the future, EcoCaters will be the first place we'll call! More...

Take a moment to stop by here there is plenty of nearby parking. Soak it in, any movie or television lover will be pleased just to stand at the gates. This is where 1933 King Kong was filmed and those sets were later burned for "the Burning of Atlanta" scenes in Gone with the Wind which a majority was shot here. Later Lucille Ball & Desi Arnaz bought the complex and it was the home of Desilu. We're talking, I Love Lucy, Make Room For Daddy, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Star Trek, & so much more. The studio has seen many changes in size and ownership but it still remains with its iconic Mansion. Also you may note the Mansion was used twice in Gone with the Wind in opening shot of the Twelve Oaks Barbecue the mansion is given a long drive through the magic of matte paintings. And later the mansion is totally disguised as the Atlanta house again through matte painting, even today the shrubs are still are they were in the film (just a bit bigger today) and you can stand there right where Clark Gable, Hattie McDaniel, and Butterfly McQueen once stood looking are the studio office aka the Big House in Atlanta.

It's taken me way too long to write a review of Castle Catering. Ron and Sharla were both so accommodating when I got married at Castle Green last year. They were so organized and took care of every single detail, most that my wife and I didn't even think of. They were flexible with their menu options, and every guest at our wedding absolutely loved the food. They even allowed us to provide our own alcohol, which most catering companies charge an arm and a leg for. They were always easy to reach and pricing was 100% transparent. Thanks for everything, Ron and Sharla! More...

We tasted and inquired around several caterers for our wedding before deciding on Eco Caters. Here's why we chose them:They are SUPER organized and professional, quick to respond, and you can tell they are focused on making your life easier when it comes to your event. They know their business and do it flawlessly. The food is DELICIOUS. As soon as we went for our tasting, we knew this was exactly what we were looking for. Flawlessly plated, delicious food, made from fresh ingredients. Chef Rob is a super cool guy. Our wedding was small - 48 guests - guests were greeted with champagne, post-ceremony open bar, 3 tray passed appetizers, 3 types of flat bread pizzas (from the wood fired oven at our venue), a plated dinner salad and entree, and a dessert bar from an outside service which Eco beautifully set up for us. Everyone was/still is raving about the food (especially those pizzas!) and the service. Lauren was amazing to work with. She helped us with so many of the details of our wedding leading up to the day, even beyond just food and rentals. She is awesome! I don't know what I would have done without her. She helped us organize everything for that day, made suggestions on things we had no clue about. She knows her stuff. The service from the staff on the day-of was top notch. They were constantly moving around, making sure everything was perfect for us. We did not have to worry about anything on that day. We will always think about Eco Caters for future events and cannot recommend them enough. Stress free service, great great food - you will not be disappointed! More...

I've been in the industry for a long time, worked hundreds of weddings with dozens of different vendors and caterers, not to mention the entire spectrum of coordinators. Naturally, for my wedding, I would choose the vendors I trust and know to do good work. Eco Caters is by far one of the best caterers I've ever had the pleasure of working with. They are on their game, and the food is fantastic. Their prices are beyond fair, and you're guaranteed to get top quality ingredients prepared by chefs with years of expertise. They are a full service caterer, so they will help you plan the big day to a T. I highly recommend using their day-of coordinating services, so you can let them take care of timing and dealing with the various vendors. This will free you up to enjoy every moment of your wedding. We were very happy with the way our wedding turned out, and I cannot tell you the number of compliments we received on the food and service. Thank you, Eco Caters and Emily!! :) More...

Castle catering took care of our wedding at Castle Green and they were fantastic. They were organized, took care of everything you wouldn't think of, easy to work with, very experienced, and went above and beyond to give us the special day we wanted. They make sure everything goes smoothly, and their rates are super reasonable. We went with their restaurant partnership program and everything was great! More...

Ron and Starla were fantastic from the very beginning. They catered our wedding at the Castle Green. Ron spent lots of time explaining all of the options and going over each item so all costs were clear and Starla put together all of the paperwork and kept the lines of communication open. Their catering company offers a unique restaurant partners program, where you can include food from local restaurants at your reception, which I thought was a great idea. We ended up going with food through Castle Catering though, since we liked their menu and felt there were plenty of options. Throughout the process they were available,responsive, and just plain nice to deal with. Our wedding buffet looked and tasted amazing. I would recommend them to anyone. More...

Ron, Starla and everyone at Castle Catering was just amazing. They were very upfront about all costs and explained the contracts extensively. There were so many options to choose from, including using the restaurant partners program. Every time we called or came in, Ron was so friendly and helpful. I felt very comfortable throughout the process. We had a beautiful buffet for our wedding, and I know everyone enjoyed the food as well as the presentation. Top-notch service all the way! More...

What an outstanding value! We shopped around at churches, wineries, country clubs, the Queen Mary, and other sites for an elegant, fun, and well catered venue, and we are SO glad we found the Romanesque Room and Castle Catering. The setting is Golden Age Hollywood elegant, the photo backgrounds available on premises are excellent, and the quality and selection for the meal were outstanding. Ron and Starla Hobbs are a delightful couple to engage in the wedding planning, and proved to be so flexible, resourceful, and helpful. Their contribution to our wedding was flawlessly executed, and we got so many compliments from our guests concerning the classy atmosphere and delicious food. All that, and it came at a much better price than so many other venues we investigated. Be sure to use the optional LED lighting (brings the room to life!) and include the mashed potato bar. Your guests will LOVE that! More...

As a local Wedding and Event Planner with @TypeASoiree, it is so important to us to find great, reliable and flexible caterers to meet our client's ever changing needs. We recently worked with Eco Caterers on a Themed event, where they, not only completely customized the menu for our client, but also customized the package to fit their exact needs. Nicole was amazing and quick to respond with emails, and the staff who set up and tore down were quick, quiet and very friendly. My clients, and all their guests raved about the food and couldn't have been happier. Thanks, Eco! We love working with you, and look forward to more events in the future. More...

Eco caters handled our wedding back in July 2014 in Coronado. The entire experience was a breeze and they helped make our special day so memorable. We worked with Emily coordinating details from the menu to other vendors and Lauren was our day-of go-to girl who was such a life saver. One thing I wish we'd done is set a solid budget on food. I've never been to a wedding and didn't really know what to plan for. The invoice amount kept creeping up but I take responsibility for that since they didn't have a cut off number to work with. Our guests absolutely loved the food. We chose to do heavy apps and a seafood bar. I wouldn't change a thing! Lauren made sure to have a little food set aside for us so that we didn't starve. She was such a blessing. Toward the end of the night, I'd had a little too much to drink and Lauren was there to take care of me. They definitely go above and beyond. Thanks so much for everything. I hope you guys know how much a role you play in the most important day of your clients' lives. We are so appreciative. More...

I don't think you will meet anyone nicer, more generous, or more accommodating than Ron from Castle Catering. He helped us pull off a more complicated reception next door at the Castle Green because we wanted a Chinese banquet. In partnership with another caterer, Hotel Banquet, who did the food, Castle Catering took care of everything else. They did a phenomenal job and we couldn't be more pleased. I highly recommend them!

We had a last minute need for caterers and eco caterers completely saved the day. As far as our guests know, the ecocatering team had months to prepare the menu and food ahead of time. That's the way it looked anyways! It was wonderful to outsource all of that work- including plates, linens, drinkware, and more to the very capable hands of eco catering! Also, they were incredibly pleasant and lovely to work with. Look forward to the next time we need catering done! More...

I had horrible luck with catering recommendations that I had been given when I started my planning process. I decided to take matters into my own hands, and start searching myself. I am SO happy I came across Eco Caters! I give them 5 stars because everything about them, and their service was just that. It was super important to me to have organic and local foods at our wedding. They not only delivered a fantastic menu, but helped me in every aspect of our day. My husband, family and I truly felt that John and his team were there for us every step of the way. We still get compliments on our food from that day, and just how fabulous everything turned out. We honestly couldn't have had a better day, thanks to them. I will continue to recommend Eco Caters time and time again. If you're looking for the best catering service in the DMV area, look no further! More...

I was not able to get a tour of the studio but from my experience everything is ran very smoothly. There was no confusion on where to go or what to do and my boyfriend and I were very pleased at the staff. We were treated with the best customer service and the show was great! So happy I got to see the beautiful Chrissy teigen! I am such a huge fan! If you are interested in these shows you most definitely have to experience being a live audience.

We were thrilled to find EcoCaters for our wedding. After speaking to several caterers who were unable to provide any options for an Asian fusion meal, we were blown away by EcoCaters, who put together a customized menu just for us. At the tasting, Chef Nick asked us many questions and took notes on things we liked and did not like about each dish. He made recommendations based on the serving method we chose (buffet style versus sit-down), and when we didn't love the vegetable options, he came up with five new options that would go well with the other dishes we chose.

We have had a great experience working with Lauren, who helped reserve all of our rentals. She asked for multiple quotes that we could compare and that would fit within our budget.

My first taping at The FABlife show!The Studio: Located in downtown Culver City. There is a studio sign on Washington Blvd so you won't miss it. The Show: First season. Small studio but intimate. Beautiful set. The hosts are super super super friendly with the audience. They interact with the audience and chat with them when the show is finished. The stage manager is great in controlling the time, 2 hours taping. The Parking: For TV taping, you park at the public parking structure right across from the studio. The first two hours FREE then $1 per hour. Very reasonable price. More...

We worked with Eco Caters for an event that we held in Venice in September and we cannot recommend them enough! We were planning from a far and both Lauren and Nicole were great to work with. They were easy to get a hold of---and were great at recommending things that not only would work great for our event, but also stayed within our budget. The food....was AMAZING. We had over 30 women and each one was in heaven. We had quite a few meat eaters---but none even noticed that it was all vegetarian. Eco Caters was great at creating "meat-and-potatoes" kind of meals without the meat. Both chefs were kind and even loaded the dishwasher at the end! Highly recommended. Thank you Eco-Caters. More...

We were married this past weekend and held a reception in Pt. Loma for approximately 80 people. What we experienced with Eco Caters was nothing short of amazing! This company provides unbelievable service to its clients every throughout every step of the planning process, on into the event and after. We have never been more impressed with Owner/Manager team as we were with Emily, Nicole and Jessica. These ladies new their business! They were able to make accurate and concise calls with regard to all of the details for our reception, and were available to answer questions and address any concerns, (not that we really had any), typically within the day. The food that Eco Caters provided was just as incredible as their management team! They use an on-site oven to actually cook and prepare the food right at your reception/event, which is how their unbelievable food options are able to be so freshly enjoyed by your guests. Add to that the fact that the food is local and organic, and you have a combination that is out of this world. We cannot wait to have another party...if only to use this company again! More...

Ron, Starla, & Duane were all absolutely great! Starla was on top of the communications, and always provided a quick response to our numerous questions. Ron's extensive catering knowledge was invaluable, and even though we only used his catering services for our appetizers, his guidance helped us out w/ the outside food caterer we hired. Ron even went the extra mile to meet w/ our caterer & coordinate the food delivery logistics to ensure everything went smoothly on our wedding day. The DJ & Alcohol vendors Ron & Starla recommended were also a pleasure to work with. Their services went seamlessly thanks in part to already having a working professional relationship with the Romanesque Room. Duane was the MVP the week leading up to the wedding. He provided us with the progress of the setup throughout the week, and made any necessary changes based on our feedback. We were lucky enough to be able to prep. & assemble a few of our decorations the day before the wedding thanks in part to the flexibility provided to us by Romanesque Room. Our wedding reception was great & we highly recommend the Romanesque Room & their team! Thanks again! More...

Also, I can't say enough amazing things about Lauren, the coordinator.  She is so professional and friendly, and made the entire wedding experience easy for the whole family.  Thanks, Eco, for helping make our day fabulous!

Ron, Starla and all the amazing staff at Castle Catering are beyond amazing. I had my event at Castle Green and having the Caterers next door made everything so easy. From the start they were so accommodating and so friendly. On our wedding day everyone could not get over how amazing the food was, people went up for 2 or 3 more plates. Who says the Groom and Bride do not eat! We ate everything on our plate. The pecan crusted chicken was so moist and flavorful, and the tenderloin couldn't of been prepared any better. Buffet style is always a little scary especially when you have 180 guests but everyone got there food quick and it went so smoothly.  The room looked amazing. They put out our menu cards in the napkins, decorated the buffet and the dessert stations, and the table cloths they found me when my vendor last minute told me she didn't have any more, looked even better then the ones I picked. It looked breathtaking! You can not go wrong with Castle Catering. If I can give them 20 stars I would. Thanks Again for making our Wedding Day Amazing!Sandy and Lee del Rosario More...

Eco Caters was our catering sponsor for the Pelonkey Grand Launch Party in Washington, DC last week, and if I could, I'd let my tastebuds speak for me. All the food was specially curated for our party, prepared fresh, and so flavorful. The Singer's Pastrami & House Pickle Sliders and Okra Fritter with Cheesecake Remoulade were my personal favorites, but the entire menu was full of variety. Beyond the great food, Eco Caters are such wonderful people to work with! Before, during, and after our event they were helpful and responsive, and I'd recommend them in a heartbeat. More...

I had my wedding reception here a few weeks ago, and I could not recommend The Romanesque Room with greater enthusiasm!
VENUE: The site has four main areas - the entryway, the bar/cocktail area, the main event site, and an outdoor space. For our 130ish wedding guests, there was more than enough space to walk around in each area. The main area is quite striking with the arches, and many of our guests commented on how unique and beautiful our reception was. I appreciated the openness of the place (vs. other venues where everything is located in just one room and can become quite stuffy).
COST: The proprietors, Ron and Starla, were very willing to work within our budget. We decided to have a buffet dinner catered by Castle Catering, which is their catering company, although they also offer catering by local restaurants. For alcohol, it's BYO; we went with their recommended vendor, and it ended up costing us less than $7 per person for a full open bar for the night! They require that everything be done in cash/check (no credit cards).
LOCATION: The venue is located in the heart of downtown Pasadena, which is a huge bonus. Many of our guests were flying in from out of state, and we wanted to pick a venue that was in a safe and entertaining part of the LA-area.
EASE: I saved the best for last! I planned the wedding from across the country, and Ron and Starla truly coordinated every aspect of our reception. We discussed every detail of the reception, and they are very clear and good at explaining these details. They let us borrow their cake stand and table numbers, free of charge. They extended our dance floor, also free of charge. We were able to drop things off (such as menus, guest book, etc.) a few days before the reception, and everything was set up according to our discussions. During the day of the reception, the entire staff was extremely professional and kind. Our reception truly went off without a hitch, and that is due to Ron and Starla!

I'm a little bias because my all-time favorite movie, Gone With The Wind, was filmed here. But even without the impressive history of these studios, I enjoy them. The location is awesome, adjacent to downtown Culver City (which I love all on its own). You can park in the Trader Joe's garage on Culver Blvd. and then walk out the back entrance to Washington and down Ince if you are going to a taping here. It is free for 2 hours and I believe the daily max is only $8 anyway. Love this area! More...

I'm paranoid whenever I see a business with nothing but 5 star reviews, but trust me, Eco Caters has earned it. I got married at The 1909 last month and Lauren was my (super amazing) point person. Catering was easily the most overwhelming part of the process for me simply because there are SO many options in LA and it's such a big price tag, you want to get what you pay for. Lauren was SO responsive the entire time (and had an out-of-office letting you know when she was working a busy weekend so you weren't left hanging), walked me through every tiny detail from the trash can rentals to the disposable fork options to the timeline. These are not fun things to plan by any means but she made it easy and was always always helpful, via email or phone or whatever I wanted. We had a coordinator as well but you might not even need one if you work with Lauren. On the day of, the food was absolutely delicious and got tons of compliments, and I barely noticed they were there (which is what you want, trust me) besides when it was time to eat. They were there all day setting up, cleaning up, etc and I was able to relax and have the time of my life. Thank you Lauren and Eco Caters!! More...

Eco Caters catered our wedding a couple of months ago and did an absolutely extraordinary job. We also added the "day of" coordination (which is actually a month of planning) and the team was an absolute dream. They start taking over communication with all of the vendors a month before the event. The add-on was hands-down the best purchase we made for our wedding. The entire Eco Caters team is so easy to work with, but I absolutely loved Jessica. She was quick with replies and made sure everything went exactly as planned. I still hear from our guests that our food at the wedding was the best wedding food they have ever had. We were so pleased with everything! Beyond the delicious food, I was impressed by Eco Caters' service and ability to connect with us. We feel so grateful that Eco Caters was a part of our most special day! I highly recommend them for catering + coordination without any hesitation. More...

I hired Eco Caters for my wife's 30th birthday party (a surprise one at that). I chose EC because of their commitment to real and whole food. I was not disappointed. From the initial discussions and menu planning with Jessica and Nicole to seeing the presentation and meeting Chef Damon, I was completely satisfied. I had a demanding set of requirements as the menu had to be AIP friendly along with many other restrictions due to my wife's food intolerances. They not only delivered a perfect menu that my wife could enjoy but everyone else in attendance enjoyed the food as well. They are a true class act. You will not be disappointed. More...

Eco Caters was one of my favorite vendors to work with for our 7/25/2015 wedding. We started out working with Lauren as our wedding planner, I believe she was moved to another location, so Jessica stepped in and we thoroughly enjoyed working with Jessica. The day of, Jessica was out there on a hot day sweating her butt off, and very touched by the sun making sure our day went smoothly. And throughout the process, She was extremely responsive, she was quick to answer our questions, and when we found out we were expecting a baby, she was very helpful with helping us find ways where we can reduce the costs in some areas. So, Eco Caters provided catering, and planning for the month of our wedding by the way. They handled the wedding rehearsal, and keeping in contact with our vendors. They helped us with figuring out how much liquor to buy, they managed the bar, they set everything up at our venue, and just made all the separate elements shine through cohesively. We did our tasting with the owners, Emily and her husband, and they were awesome to work with as well. The food was awesome, we got TONS of compliments on the food. I'm personally still craving the beef brisket and the Gouda Mac and cheese we got. Also on our menu was Creole blackened catfish, and green beans with crispy shallots, all of it was delicious. Overall, we would not hesitate to work with Eco Caters again, the team did a fantastic job. More...

We just got married at the Smog Shoppe and one of the very best parts of our wedding was working with Eco Caters.  I worked with Lauren throughout the process, who is an absolute dream!!! She made the whole planning part so fun and easy.  She was super responsive and goes above and beyond to make sure everything is handled and answered.  Not only did she help with all our food and beverage needs but also tackled all of our rentals for us.  I literally could go on forever about how great she was, but lets get down to the other half of why we love them so much.  THE FOOD, was amazing!! We did a Sunday Funday Brunch wedding and  I have never been to a better brunch buffet.  At our tasting Nick came out and explained every dish he was serving  and how he prepped everything.  He even went as far as telling us which farms they sourced different food from.  With his passion alone we knew we were in for a treat. You know its good food when people come up to you at the wedding to tell you how nice everything is, but the food is amaaaazing!! We were not the only ones glad we hired them but each of our guests still are talking about how great the food and the staff was. We will definitely be using them for any event we need catered, truly amazing to work with on all levels. More...

We searched high and low, made spreadsheets and checked out place after place and after our exhaustive search I have to say that I really could not recommend a better venue to work with. The entire staff was not just helpful they were an absolutely essential part of our wedding planning and execution. Ron, Starla, Duane and the rest of the Romanesque room crew were thorough, professional and most of all incredibly kind. Its rare that somebody is just as amazing on the follow through as they are in the sales pitch and these folks deliver. They will make sure you get what you need and have fun while you do it! We had a little over 100 guests, five different vendors and made almost all the decoration ourselves and the venue made sure it all went off without a hitch. They were available and cooperative with every part of the planning process as well as the teardown on the big day. They even recommended the perfect caterer! As for the location, you can't find something as great as pasadena in the greater L.A. area. ESPECIALLY if you have out of town guests. Its a way for them to come to L.A. without having to deal with the craziness of it. Plus there's a TON of great hotels, bars, parks and restaurants all over the place. A true gem and of all the decisions we made during our wedding planning process easily one of the best. More...

I came to them with a menu and a dream version of my wedding and Lauren took that dream/idea and made it come true and more.Thank you Eco Caters! I will keep you in mind when I make recommendations to others as well as in my future event planning career. More...

Eco Caters was truly a pleasure to work with from start to finish.  Their menu is extensive which made us a little skeptical at first but they deliver on every dish.  It was the first tasting we went to and the food exemplified our personal style perfectly, which is really tasty, home-style cooking.  The price was on the more reasonable end of all the quotes we received which made choosing them a no brainer.  After tasting their food and working with them, it's hard to understand why other caterers charge so much more.  They never tried to up-sell us and they were super flexible in working with our budget.  They worked with us on the rentals, in bringing in our own desserts, and tailoring the menu to accommodate our preferred dinner style.  We ended up doing a family style service with serve yourself coffee and people loved it.  Lauren was such a pleasure to work with.  She was also on it, responsive, upbeat and professional.  The day of was a huge success.  Cannot thank Eco Caters enough for making our big day so wonderful!

My husband booked Eco Caters for my surprise birthday party as he wanted to make sure that I could eat. He worked with the chef to build a menu that was safe for me and it was absolutely fantastic. They were organized, knowledgeable of their foods and recipes, cleaned up the kitchen after they were done cooking and very friendly and professional. It was amazing to be able to eat knowing it was AIP, candida and gluten free. The sautéed greens with pork belly was to die for. Thank you eco caters. More...

Eco Caters catered our wedding at the SmogShoppe two weeks ago, and we absolutely loved everything about our experience. We chose Eco because of the amazing 5 star reviews on Yelp, and we were not disappointed. The contact with the company has always been incredibly easy and smooth. The food was absolutely exquisite; all of our guests keep raving about how much they loved the food. We were actually concerned about the food not tasting as good as it did during the tasting, since we heard that is a common problem with a lot of catering companies. Of course it is quite different to produce 100 plates instead of 2, so quality is often lost. However, the food at the actual wedding exceeded our expectations. It was just as amazing, if not more delicious than what we remembered. The hors d'oeuvres were incredible; the mojo shrimp, scallop, and gougere with bacon, arugula, and pickled onion were to die for. They disappeared within seconds. Even the cheese plates were subliminal. The plated food was also quite memorable. The whole experience was more than what we hoped for, and we are forever grateful.
The Eco Caters team was always courteous, professional, accommodating, and amazing since the very beginning. We even hired their day-of-coordination service, which also exceeded our expectations. Lauren was just truly amazing. She went above and beyond at all times and did so much work (not just the day of); we couldn't believe it. Our family members kept commenting how much this woman was working nonstop! Lauren was absolutely fabulous, and we can't thank her enough for everything she did to make sure everything went smoothly. Definitely worth every penny!
To sum it up, we are so incredibly glad we chose Eco Caters for our wedding, and we would do it all over again. We can't recommend this company enough! Thank you Eco!!

EcoCaters is the one.  Amazing food, the guys that run the company are young, cool & very professional (ahem... and not too shabby to look at) and their staff is on the ball. Best thing of all is how healthy the food is (all organic goods). Very artsy/creative with their menus & prep/presentation- fit for foodies who notice that kind of thing. Found out these guys feed a few pro sports teams in DC too- I'm no sports fan but felt warm & fuzzy being fueled with the same foods... Fitness central ;). A bit pricier than some other quotes I got (the nature of organic foods...) but glad I went with em- and I'll do it again. Standout quality worth the extra dime. Recommended em to a few friends and they've also been very happy. Keep up the great work fellas, the east coast needs more health-conscious, eco-friendly companies! More...

Eco Caters is AMAZING!  I did a lot of research before landing on Eco Caters to cater my wedding 2 weeks ago.  The food was absolutely delicious AND the service was fantastic.  Lauren and Emily were perfect in helping to arrange the details of the day and had everything we needed to make sure that all bases were covered.  Lauren was always accessible and easy to communicate with whenever I needed.Many of my guests (including those who go to LOTS of weddings) told me afterwards that the food was better than any other wedding they had been to. AND the food was all organic, sustainable and local - huge bonus! More...

Castle Catering is AMAZING! I had my wedding back in July at the Castle Green Venue. Me and my husband were on a tight budget and everywhere we went were charging us way past out budget. Ron gave us a price and was willing to work with us until the price he quote fit our budget. And the best part is that me and my husband did not have to settle for anything les than what we wanted. Ron was so sweet and welcoming when we first met. He is so flexible with scheduling and adding and taking things from your list. He will honestly, do anything to make your day the BEST it can be. I will definitely recommend Castle Catering to anyone who is looking for a honest Cater. More...

The entire staff was just wonderful to work with over at The Romanesque Room. Ron and Starla were extremely accomodating with all of our needs. Starla in particular is a bride's best friend. She was such a doll. Any request or question I had was answered very quickly which allowed me to work more efficiently with all my other vendors. The main man, Duane Hall, is the go-to guy for all venue-related requests. He was dilligent, friendly and above all eager to make our wedding day as perfect as can be. You really can't ask for better customer service. Also, as a bonus...since they've accumulated a lot of
things over the years, they let you use whatever they have that you need at no extra cost. For instance, we had our ceremony outside in the garden area. They let us borrow their wedding arbor. We also borrowed their gorgeous cake pan. Such a wonderful group to work with while we planned our wedding. I highly recommend this venue and its staff!

We worked with Eco Caters for our Nov 1st wedding at the Fig House. Lauren was our head event coordinator, and was an absolute pleasure to work with! From beginning to the end she made the whole planning process super easy! She is extremely detailed with all of our changes. The guests raved about the entire meal from the appetizers to the buffet!  And the entire day went off without a hitch. I'd definitely work with Lauren and Eco Caters again! More...

When we started planning our wedding, my fiancé and I had one objective: and that was to make the process as simple as possible! Thanks to the staff at the Romanesque Room, this objective was met.
We first came across the Romanesque Room through a wedding website.I sent an email inquiry to receive more information and within 24 hours, Ron (the owner) gave me a call. He patiently discussed with me every aspect of renting the venue, and answered all my questions. We set up an appointment to go visit the venue in person, as soon as we arrived we were graciously received by him. Right away he showcased a very professional yet laid back demeanor. He went over budget numbers, catering, set-ups, etc. He also allows you to bring your own liquor. An option to provide an open bar at a convenient price? Why, yes please! Needless to say my fiancé and I left with a very good feeling after our first visit and decided to lock in the place. After that, it couldn’t have been easier. We had a couple of meetings leading up to the event. Ron and his lovely wife - Starla were always available to go over our needs. If you need something extra, the chances are they have it at your disposal and free of charge (easles, cake stand, etc). The day of the actual wedding my fiancé and I did not have to worry about a thing. Everything was set up exactly the way we had discussed.Our event coordinators that day were always on hand to provide anything we needed. One thing we also fancied from the venue is that besides the banquet area, there is also a bar area and an outdoor patio. Our guests had a good time mingling at the different areas throughout the evening. All of the comments from our guests after the wedding were positive; they all loved the ambiance and the staff's attentiveness. I can't recommend this place enough for your event needs! They really make sure that you have a good time - and if that is your goal, well then you have come to the right place.

Clearly we aren't the first people to have an incredible experience with Eco Caters! We hired them to cater our wedding in a forest in Pasadena and not only was each and every staff member sweet and professional, but the food was incredible. We requested the Spork Foods vegan menu of BBQ Jackfruit, Cobb Salad, Grilled Corn with Maple Chipotle Butter, Homemade Dinner Rolls and Mac and Cheese. Our non-vegan guests were blown away! Thank you Eco Caters for making our wedding so special! More...

Eco Caters did my wedding at Smog Shoppe in August 2014 and they were amazing! They were such an integral part of the whole planning process because of course so much of the wedding revolves around food. But aside from that, they also coordinated our furniture and reception rentals. It was helpful having Eco do this and not dealing with the rental company directly. I would just tell them what I wanted or any changes and they would do the rest. Eco also handled setting up so much of the wedding, moving around a giant photo wall we had made, and making sure the wedding was flowing properly. They also provided the bartenders and gave us some signature cocktail ideas. For the food, it was so good! Many guest told us it was some of the best wedding food they've had. They really helped us customize the menu and were accommodating when I decided to change a few things the week before.  They also made sure myself and the groom had food at the wedding and brought us special plates of everything. We also wanted some cocktails and food to be served before the wedding to guests and they were willing to do that and were very helpful. The only thing we were apprehensive about is a few months before the wedding, the person we had been working closely with at Eco left, so we got a new person and then had to do another in-person meeting to make sure everything we had planned was still good to go. We were worried this would be an issue, but everything turned out just fine and overall we were really pleased with Eco and the wedding. Here is our menu:Pre-Ceremony:Tray Passed: Fresh bruschetta with Tomato Concasse, Avocado Oil, and Preserved Lemon Cocktail Hour:Stationary: Crab/avocado cut sushi rolls; fruit, cheese, pita, hummusTray Passed: Prosciutto Wrapped Dates, Melon Basil Skewers with Pistachio Oil Dinner Buffet:Grilled Chicken with mango and avocadoBraised beef brisket with tomato and garlic (my favorite!)Garden SaladBrussel Sprouts Mac and CheeseGarlic Smashed Potatoes More...

Eco Caters catered our wedding for 100 people on 8/31/14 at Marina Village. Our whole experience with Eco has been a very satisfying one. Emily and her team made sure to answer all our questions, and gave us timely updated invoices throughout the entire process. Lauren was our coordinator and did an excellent job at helping us coordinate our day to make sure everything ran smoothly. Eco also did a great job at sticking to our budget, they had many creative ideas on how to reduce the costs of catering our wedding. We decided to go with sustainable, compostable bamboo plates and cutlery instead of renting glassware and plates .The food was amazing, organic, and locally sourced. We received numerous comments from our guests about how the food was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. We brought some tin containers to take home the left overs, and we are still eating them. On the day of the wedding, I didn't receive a single call from Eco (amazing, and just what I was hoping for, to stay off the phone at my wedding!) and everything was set up perfectly when we got to the reception. The candles were lit, the buffet was set up, and the bar was up and hoping. We would definitely recommend Eco to anyone that needs catering for an event (especially weddings). More...

Pros: Reasonably priced, great customer service, accommodating, no nickel and diming.
Con: They do not accept credit cards

In April 2014, my husband and I hired Castle Catering to do our wedding. We worked directly with the owners, who did not nickel and dime us to death on anything. In fact, they encouraged us to use as many of their decorations, table settings, etc. as they had and at no extra charge. They were very accommodating and even agreed to let us use their facility for our rehearsal dinner on their birthday, the night before our wedding. I was very thankful for that and it was a huge success. They made the venue really beautiful and we had so many compliments. They work closely with other vendors that are also very accommodating and reasonably priced. The only con was that they do not accept credit cards, which as you know, weddings are expensive and most of us only have credit, not cash. We were able to somehow scrounge up the cash and are actually thankful that we did because now we do not have that extra debt. Overall we had a great experience working with them and going forward we plan to use them again. It was well worth it. They were very sweet and even gave us a wedding gift. I definitely recommend using them. –Gina & Eric

The Romanesque room was perfect for our venue needs and budget. Not only were they affordable and the space beautiful, but we were able to come in throughout the week to bring things and begin to set up on our own, which saved me a lot of money for a wedding coordinator needing to set things up with limited time the morning of (as long as there was no other event that weekend they allow this). We were able to bring our own alcohol since my husband brews his own beer, that was very important to us. Having the wedding outside, the cocktail hour, and then the spectacular ball room for our reception was very convent for guests not to travel around for each event. There was also an entire room of things that you could borrow for the event that had been left behind by other people, needed a trellis for flowers? Didn't need to rent one from the florist, just have the florist use the one from the venue. Like mirrored rounds for your centerpieces? They have it, vases for the buffet table, covered. It was great that they did not nickel and dime you for these extra items, I had been to one ranch that even to the knife you borrowed was $5 extra, that plate, $7, etc, that all adds up quick! I do recommend making sure you keep all of your paperwork straight as we had some confusion on what was "included" and what would be extra once the final check was due. Everything was worked out very well in the end, but it helped a lot that I had my original quote cost paperwork. Ron and his wife are lovely people to work with. More...

From my first conversation with Emily until the follow up after my wedding, Eco Caters was simply OFF THE CHAIN!! WOW! I have never experienced such warm, engaging, professional people who executed to perfection at every turn! Eco Caters catered my wedding of 80 ppl at the SmogShoppe on July 13, 2014 and it simply blew me and my guests away! The staff was incredibly hospitable and professional and not only was the food beautiful but extremely tasty and to the surprise of all my guests, completely vegan! Yes, I am vegan, and my husband most of the time, but most of our guests, not so much, so when Emily enthusiastically took on the challenge of surprising and delighting my guests with vegan food that would rival the best gourmet carnivorous meals, I knew we were going to be successful. She turned us over to the amazing Lauren and I am not sure there are enough words to describe her excellent responsiveness, thoroughness and complete rockstarness! I know I was only one of many brides she was dealing with, but she made me feel like the only one, she answered countless dumb questions, put me completely at ease and exceeded every expectation! And if all of that were not enough, Emily and Lauren were committed to staying within budget, it simply doesn't get any better!Fresh, delicious, phenomenal food with award winning people means your event will be more than you could ever hope for when you hire Eco Caters! I will use them again and again, and would recommend them to anyone and everyone!Thank you Eco Caters, you ROCK!With much gratitude,An extremely happy bride...Melissa More...

Eco Caters created a beautiful buffet for my daughter's graduation party.  We had a small afternoon lunch with about 20 people.  It was a bit of a challenge for me to coordinate because we were planning this party from northern California.  Emily, Lauren and Damon took care of everything!  They worked with the property manager of the house that we rented to make sure the home would be appropriate for our event. They agreed to come set up while we were busy attending the graduation.  Damon cooked a beautiful meal on the premises.  It was fresh and delicious just in time for our guests.  Emily did a wonderful job setting things up, tending to the guests and cleaning up afterward.  All I had to do was enjoy the event!  I highly recommend Eco Caters if you are looking for healthy Eco-friendly food and exceptional service.

Castle Catering did an absolutely wonderful job with our wedding. Ron Hobbs, who runs Castle Catering, is a genuinely nice person who is invested in providing excellent service. Down to the last detail Ron and his wife Starla made sure everything was perfect and to our liking, and brought a sense of calm every time we met with them. The food was excellent! Ron's team provided appetizers and two food stations (including the popular mashed potato martini). In addition, we decided to have Armenian food and we were able to do that as Ron actually provides a unique service through his restaurant partners program,

We had our wedding at the Castle Green next door and for anyone considering having their wedding there, I would highly recommend using Castle Catering. Castle Catering provides a secure storage space conveniently located in the same building for various articles you may want to leave the day prior (such as my wedding dress for example!) as well as gifts and other items that you may not want to take home the same night. In addition, Ron assists with parking validations, which was a tremendous help!

Ron's team is amazing! We had a complicated macaroon display and they allowed us to store the cookies in their fridge overnight. They also helped us with the decor and dessert stations. They were so attentive and nice, which made a big difference. Lastly, as one illustration of how they went above and beyond, one of the guys working in the kitchen (Luke) went as far as to volunteer his own pair of pants (which we forgot to bring) for the ceremony; “The show must go on!” he said. Furthermore, Ron ran over to Macy's during the ceremony and bought us another pair of pants for the reception. This speaks to their commitment and genuine interest in our wedding day! In conclusion, for a caterer with terrific food who thinks of everything and still manages to graciously deal with any last-minute drama, choose Castle Catering!

I just used Eco Caters for a business dinner for about 20 guests. I would highly recommend them if you want a stress-free, smooth event. I have placed many catering orders for various types of events in various cities around the nation and have never been more satisfied with the food and the service. I truly felt supported. Staci, Samantha, and Angela were my contacts leading up to the event and were very communicative and thorough. All of our guests commented on how delicious and fresh the food was - the food felt nurturing vs. too filling. The on-site staff were very friendly and were extremely non-disruptive as they replenished and tidied up. They had minimal questions because everything was discussed in advance, so it relieved me of feeling like I had to do anything except enjoy. In summary, it was simply the best catering experience I've ever had and I will definitely use them for future events. More...

They answer questions very quickly which is great when you are planing a wedding. The first meeting I had with Ron calmed my nerves about finding a wedding caterer because I knew I was going with Castle Catering. The staff was very professional and they took care of all my guests' needs. The price may seem high but trust me it is worth every penny!!! They are also very flexible if you want to bring any cultural or family traditions into your wedding. Ron and Starla treat you like family and I can not imagine having anyone else cater my wedding.

We used the Romanesque Room at Castle Catering for our 230-people wedding reception and we loved it. Throughout the whole planning process, Ron and Starla were very responsive. Starla always responded to emails within minutes. They readily answered our many questions.

Ron and Starla were very professional and treated our wishes with the utmost respect. They made us feel completely comfortable in trusting them to make our vision a reality. Even though Ron was feeling sick, he made sure that he was there on our wedding day so that everything would go smoothly. From the servers to the bartenders, all of the staff that we worked with on the wedding day were professional, kind, and helpful.

The Romanesque Room at Castle Catering was an awesome value. They were very flexible and allowed us to use anything they had with no extra charges or hidden fees. Some examples of things that we used were mirrored rounds for the centerpieces and table number stands. They also allowed us to borrow an easel for a picture at the church where we had our ceremony. Ron and Starla were also flexible on the food. They allowed us to bring in traditional Indonesian food and let us take hot trays home to the lady who cooked the food so that she could put the food directly in the trays. Finally, Castle Catering allows you to bring your own alcohol, which saved us a lot of money. They recommended The Bottle Shop, who they work with all the time, and The Bottle Shop delivers all the alcohol directly to the Romanesque Room and will take back any unopened bottles. We were able to have a full open bar for much cheaper than if we used a hotel or other banquet hall.

In summary, working with Ron and Starla at Castle Catering was very easy. They are both such pleasant and lovely people and made our wedding so great. We are extremely satisfied with our choice for our wedding venue, and we highly recommend the Romanesque Room at Castle Catering to anyone!

We used the Romanesque Room at Castle Catering for our 230-people wedding reception in September and we loved it. Ron and Starla were extremely easy to work with. Throughout the whole planning process, Ron and Starla were very responsive. Ron set up a few meetings over the course of our planning to talk with us about our vision for the day, and Starla always responded to emails within minutes.

They kept mentioning that if we needed to bring things to the Romanesque Room and store it earlier in the week before the wedding that we could put it in their office. I was also able to come in the day before and set up the place cards and other decorations. They also gave us a lovely gift basket with some food and wine to enjoy in our hotel after the wedding, and it was definitely appreciated! Finally, Ron and Starla held on to our leftover Indonesian rice and wedding cake until we could pick it up a couple days after the wedding. In summary, working with Ron and Starla at Castle Catering was very easy. They are both such pleasant and lovely people and made our wedding so great. We are extremely satisfied with our choice for our wedding venue, and we highly recommend the Romanesque Room at Castle Catering to anyone looking for an event hall, either for getting married or for anything else!

This is long over due and I apologize for that.  I recently bought a new home in Sunset Cliffs on Point Loma.  I am going to do some remodeling on the house and wanted to invite friends and new neighbors over.  About a month before I started sending out emails to local caterers and the only business to reply for such short notice was Eco Caters.  I did some back ground checks but was really impressed with their service.  On the day of the event they arrived early, set up their service and bar and was superior.  Their food was amazing. After the event I had several friends ask me who catered the event and I gladly gave them the name.  A few weeks after the event I received a phone call and someone had accidently taken a small spoon holder that I normally keep by my stove and they hand delivered it back to the house.  Amazing company and great staff.  My bad for not writing sooner.  Greg More...

Eco Caters catered my small event of 10 people two weeks ago and all I can say is WOW! Not only was the service amazing, but the food was top notch! I appreciate all they did for my group as most catering companies won't even touch a small group of 10 people. Eco caters went out of their way to make sure my event was a complete, delicious success. Thank you so much Eco Caters!! More...

A group of us hosted our 20 year reunion at The Castle Green Romanesque Room. From the beginning Ron was amazing and very helpful. We were able to utilize materials available thru the venue and bring our own decorations. Ron and Duane were very helpful and a key part to the success of our event. Their knowledge and experience ensured that we stayed within budget. The food was excellent and the bar and wait staff kept the group very happy. I highly recommend using them for any occasion More...

Haiku studio review:Amazing venue //Relaxed and orderly staff //Catered to the fansFirst of all, I realize that I'm projecting the epicness of my overall experience onto the venue itself, but they deserve it for working so smoothly with Riot. I came here on September 20th for the League of Legends LCS group stage. I don't know how much of this was run by Riot versus the actual Culver staff, but it was such a great night! The studio itself was pretty open and you could walk around during the matches and sit wherever there were free seats. The riot staff was all extremely friendly and engaging. The whole event had a quaint feel to it- something that was missing in the larger events like the semi-finals- which really made the experience special. When the event was over the fans were allowed to hang around and meet the players, casters, and other staff. It was really nice of the Studio staff to allow this to happen instead of forcing everyone out at a specific time. I don't have enough words for how great this event was! More...

Eco Caters catered our wedding two weeks ago in Joshua Tree and they were amazing right from the start. Dana, who was our initial contact was very professional, easy going, and patient with all of our menu changes. We went in for a tasting and were impressed by the presentation of our different options. Once we booked, our contact became Michelle, who was AMAZING. If you're working with Michelle, you can trust you're in good hands for the planning. She trekked to the desert for a site visit, coordinated our timelines, and worked with us to stay within our budget. Staci led the team on our wedding day and my husband and I AND the venue owners were impressed with the level of ease and professionalism that they displayed. Everything was seamless, the service was perfect, and the food was delicious. I still have people telling me how much they loved the chimichurri angel hair pasta! All in all, Eco is a super easy to work with company, with an outstanding staff that knows how to coordinate and deliver amazing food with great service. Prost! More...

Castle Catering will not let you down. They strive to make every event a memorable one. I have known the owner for many years and can attest to his integrity, his attention to detail and his ability to provide each and every client with more than they dreamed of.

We used Eco Caters for our San Diego wedding. From the beginning, Adam, Emily and Lauren were incredibly easy to work with, responsive and thorough. We opted for a day of wedding coordinator, but the staff was involved well before our big day - helping connect with our other vendors, organizing our timelines, all while keeping us well informed. We opted for hors d'oeuvres during cocktail hour and a buffet style dinner for our wedding reception. The food was incredible! Our guests could not stop talking about the amazing local fish burritos and blueberry chipotle chicken. In addition to the delicious meal, the Eco Caters staff at our event provided acceptional, professional, and friendly service. We were especially impressed with Emily, our day of coordinator who was extremely punctual, calm, courteous and accomodating throughout the entire event. My husband and I are always looking to support local businesses and we are so glad that we had Eco Caters at our wedding - they really exceeded our expectations! Their services are HIGHLY recommended. More...

We researched many catering services for our wedding, but none came close to what Castle Catering had to offer. Their price, professionalism, and range of services beat everyone else. Aside from Ron and Starla being the most honest and friendly people to work with, I'd say the greatest part about Castle Catering is their Restaurant Partners program. Through this program, you can have the food supplied by an outside restaurant, and catered by Ron and his crew. We had our favorite Cuban restaurant's food at our wedding. How great is that?!  My list of reasons for why Castle Catering is GREAT can go on and on, so Give Ron a call. It will be one of the best wedding planning decision you make. More...

The is a large banquet hall that fills up 200 people there.  It is a nice sized, located in the heart of Los Angeles, and has the best employees ever.  Ron and Starla were amazing, the best people to work with.  I am excited to work together on the next event, possibly a baby shower. More...

Eco Caters recently catered and coordinated our wedding for 150 people. It was a new venue for them and they absolutely rocked it. Everything was fabulous - the food, the service, the coordination, everything. We had a Latin themed menu - Plantain chips with guacamole and roasted jalapenos, Habanero chicken skewers, farmers market salad, wild mushroom quinoa, lemon-lime asparagus with cilantro, chicken and beef fajitas, and roasted polenta cakes with market vegetable ragout. PHENOMENAL. Our guests raved about the food and we loved it! Best part? Local and seasonal produce. We had vegans, meat-eaters and vegetarians, and all were happy campers.Food aside, the service was fantastic. Our coordinators made sure every little detail was taken care of and we were able to step aside and let them run the show. The entire crew was great - friendly, helpful, and they worked like mad men! I can't say enough good things about Eco Caters. They are incredible.Five stars really isn't enough. More...

Catering services were all over the web and I found castle catering. They had some good reviews and I checked out the menus online. They have a complete menu with pricing and other combinations on their website, pretty impressive. I called them and set up a time to come in a n discuss everything in detail. The experience went well and the catering was amazing. Easy to work with and very nice. More...

We made the rehearsal dinner for my son's wedding at Castle Catering last Friday. It would be impossible to overstate how much we enjoyed working with Ron and Starla Hobbs, as well as their key person, Duane. Everything the Hobbs said would happen, happened in exactly the way they said it would. The building is a landmark, and is beautiful. It is also maintained to the highest standard. We worked with one of their restaurant partners, as well as the person Ron recommended for the beer and wine. The latter delivers the alcohol, and only charges for what is consumed. His prices are reasonable, and his wine recommendations were excellent.Ron also makes clear, well in advance, exactly how much you will pay for every service he provides. There are no hidden fees, or other unpleasant surprises. it is a great way to do business.We cannot thank Ron, and Starla enough for helping a memorable weekend get off to a fabulous start. More...

Absolutely wonderful. The food is excellent but it's the service that made Eco outstanding. We used them for our wedding 2 months ago and loved them. Michelle and Dana were fantastic at helping us with everything from customizing our food for vegans, choosing vendors/ rentals and even just giving us ideas to cut costs and decor wise. So impressed. They may not be the cheapest caterers but you really get what you pay for. Actually, I would have paid them even more for all their wedding planning help too! More...
