We loved Hope catering since the initial food tasting. We got the lasagna dish and some of their desserts. They were upfront and clear about everything and answered every single one of my questions. Tony and Trista were both very helpful. The day of the wedding the staff was so attentive and on time. Everyone loved the food, large portions, and great service. Loved the cheesecake bars. My guests were all impressed. They even helped me find a wedding cake that everyone loved! I thought the food process was going to be the most stressful part of my wedding but it turned out to be the easiest and best part. They even worked with my budget. Definitely recommending them to anyone hosting an event in need of catering.

I just want to say, Tony and his wife are AMAZING. My fiancé and i went in for a tasting and it was just wonderful. Tony had a beautiful table set up for us, even adding a cute little centerpiece! It made us feel like we were at eating at our sweetheart table. He was so flexible with our meeting times, and answered the BILLION questions i had. The food was delicious and he included everything for us to try. Its clear that tony and his wife have a passion for the food and service they provide.

Everyone loved the results of their work. I requested specific dishes (bulgogi, mochi, random American bbq dishes) and they came through absolutely delicious and we got to take home the leftovers to feast on.

Though communication lagged on occasion, the overall provision of catering and floral arrangements, rentals and day of coordination made everything worth it.

Word of advice for those choosing this exceptional service: Be sure to choose your dishes and floral arrangements ASAP so the final price doesn’t knock you over. Communicate as much as you can at first so these busy vendors have time to respond in the midst of all their other catering work.

Hope catering not only provided amazing food for our wedding reception but they also offer so many other services that helped make my wedding day run smoothly. I used them for our floral arrangements, bar tending services and day of coordination along with the meal. The center pieces were beautiful and exactly as I pictured them. Ann was an amazing support to have throughout the wedding day. I am so happy that we chose Hope Catering for our wedding.
