Eco Caters did an absolutely amazing job catering our wedding!  The food was very fresh, the quality was high, and we've heard nothing but amazing feedback from our guests (and we had some pretty major foodies at our reception).  The team was very helpful, working with us to integrate modifications to the order, and ensure that we had the food, rentals, and top notch staff to execute our special night without any hiccups.  We would recommend Eco Caters to anyone who likes high quality fresh food at their event.  Special shout out to Jess for being awesome before and the night of our big day!

We hired Ecocaters for our October wedding at the Martin Johnson House and had a great experience! After a series of very disappointing tastings I went to Ecocaters and tasted some of the best hummus I've ever had in my life (as well as other wonderful tacos, mini sammis and grilled veggies). We had our hearts set on a taco bar and Ecocaters was very reasonable for the quality. They also were able to accommodate a vegetarian jackfruit carnitas option that was absolutely delicious! We got all our rentals through Ecocaters and our coordinator very patiently adjusted layouts and rentals many times for us (thank you Jessica!) and was helpful in explaining a lot to us - her past expertise at the venue was also helpful.The day of the whole team was amazing. We did not have a day of coordinator and relied on family and friends to help us set up. We heard the Ecocaters team was a huge help and they handled all the clean up as well. They navigated conflicting instructions and were always there when we needed something smiling and ready to help!Highly recommend for your wedding or event! More...

Eco Caters is amazing. We were so fortunate to be able to work with Shadia and her team for our son's wedding. From the beginning Shadia was so friendly, professional and accommodating, she made us feel she had everything under control and she did. We had an outdoor wedding for 140 people , sit down dinner, and everything went beautifully because of the incredible leadership of Shadia with her wonderful (very friendly) team. Everyone is still talking about how good the food was! More...

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!

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.

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...

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 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.
