I love Lali and Antigua so much!!!!!!!! Lali is a goddess: efficient, knowledgeable, compassionate, and an all-around beautiful person. Her passion for Antigua is infectious.
My "new" husband and I went for a tasting prior to deciding what to...
order for my wedding. . I knew all along that I wanted Antigua to cater my wedding due to my deep love of Latin food. There was no other choice, the reviews I had read were fabulous.
Our tasting experience was amazing. World class! We were treated like royalty and Lali talked through everything, there were no surprises and no hesitations. Everything we tried was amazing and it was very difficult to decide what to choose for our buffet.
After deliberation, the main entrees we chose were "encocao de camaron" and "ropa vieja." We decided upon the "Antigua salad," as well as plantains, yuca fries, tostones, bread/rolls, cilantro rice, white rice, black beans, pinto beans, flan, and guava tartes.
Day of the wedding: words cannot express the magical and stress free experience we had with Antiqua Catering. The Staff set up the buffet in so little time, it was even ready before we were ready to eat! Lali was present and oversaw the entire operation. When I went to get food, I was super surprised to see her! She cares so much!!!
What really stood out to me and to our guest was:
1. The professionalism of the team
The attire was more than appropriate for our wedding event, we are casual people and the staff looked 5+ star!!!!
Everyone at the wedding commented about the food. 99% of attendees that responded said it was "the best wedding food ever."
I have no shame, I went up for seconds as well as half of the guests. Go big or go home!
3. The desserts
The Flan. Oooooh the flan. I wish I could eat it everyday. It was a HIT! I highly recommend!!!!! The guava tartes were equally as impressive and delicious!
In addition, there was no cake cutting fee. Little to my knowledge, the staff cut up multiple cakes (we had a dessert table) and it was so amazing because it reduced my stress to 0%.
Overall, I cannot recommend Lali and her team at Antigua enough. She created an amazing, memorable experience for myself, my husband, and all of our wedding guests. It has been over a month and my friends/family are still inquiring about the food. Lali truly added a special touch to our best day ever. I can never thank her and her team enough! I look forward to visiting the new restaurant location!!
