We chose Le Papillon as our waitstaff and bartending service for our wedding. We were so lucky to be able to work with Tamera and her team. They answered all our questions leading up to the wedding and flawlessly prepared all our tableware and ...
table top decorations.
We had the pleasure to see Tamera during our wedding and seeing her work with her staff was incredible. All the guests' food arrived with ease and the waitstaff were extremely professional. The food and drinks came out so quick that the guests didn't even have a chance to see the bottom of their glass of wine.
The bartender was also incredible. He was able to serve all 150 of our thirsty guests and the cocktails were on par with a high quality cocktail lounge. I highly recommend working with Le Papillon for your catering and waitstaff needs!

We hired Le Papillon for our wedding in March at Nestldown and from the moment we did our tasting, we were immediately impressed. Mike, the proprietor, was incredibly kind and has been in the industry for many years. He learned that I am Irania...
n and offered to make a personalized, off menu, appetizer as a tribute to the culture/guests. That alone let me know he/Le Papillon was the one. Then, the food starting coming out and we never looked back. Everything is delicious, creative, and delicately presented. The decision was instant.
We decided to sign a contract that very week and began working with Tamera, who handles not only administrative work but also helps out day of. Tamera handled a variety of nuanced details with grace including a customized bar package where we provided all of the wine, signature cocktails, a customized champagne wall, and more! She managed countless questions from me, my now husband, and our planner effortlessly.
Everyone knows that food/drinks are the most important part of a wedding and Le Papillon did not fail to deliver! The signature cocktails we crafted were an absolute hit and our menu was spoken of for WEEKS after!
Would highly recommend Le Papillon for their delicious food and extremely gracious service!

We couldn't imagine anything better than what LP provided for our wedding! All the food and service is perfect and even exceeded our expectation.
We had our first tasting with them in their restaurant, it was such a great experience trying all ...
their food options and talking with Mike. Right away we decided to book with them and there is no need to try anyone else. Not only do they offer plated service, it is also cheaper than all other caterers on our venue's list.
We were communicating with Tamera the whole time and she was very knowledgeable and responsive. She also handled the rentals for us so we have one less thing to manage. Every detail on the day is exactly as we requested.
We had a first course salad, double main course with fish and steak, and also got hors d'oeuvres, full bar service and dessert Petite Fours. Everything is beautifully presented and tasted delicious. The main dish portion is generous and there are so many dessert varieties that I couldn't eat them all. I especially like how they incorporate truffle into many dishes, tastes so good and also makes the dinner feel more luxurious. They also accommodated all our guests' special requests, and the vegetarian option is sooo good it might even be better than the regular dish.
We had a few no-show guests, and they boxed their food and gave us to take home along with snacks and wine. This way we didn't waste our money and got to enjoy our wedding food for a few more days.
We heard from so many guests about how good the food is, even those who usually don't eat this kind of cuisine. Everyone is very impressed.
It's a pity that we could only hire them once because we only have one wedding, but luckily we can still enjoy their food in the restaurant. Will definitely go there in the future to celebrate other important events.

sponsive and always stayed true to their high level of service. I have attended and worked many weddings, and I have NEVER experienced such high quality food and service! Our guests raved about the meal, and we are still getting compliments on it! A perfect example of their service: as our best man and maid of honor were both very nervous for their toasts, neither of them touched their entrees. LP staff noticed this and fired them two completely new entrees post-speeches so they could enjoy a hot meal. This is such an amazing thing to notice and really speaks to their attention to detail and level of service. LP was a great choice for wedding!

Le Papillon provided the catering for our wedding at Thomas Fogarty Winery in May 2018. My husband and I were completely blown away by the phenomenal service and product that Mike, Tamera and their entire team provided. I can not believe how ...
long it's taken me to write this review, considering how truly amazing our experience was with them. They are by far the wedding vendor that COMPLETELY exceeded every expectation. Our guests were absolutely raving about the food and I still get asked about it 10 months later. I personally have never attended a wedding with a better caterer (and no, I would not say that about all of our vendors so this is not personal planning bias :) ). They were professional, organized, accommodating (customized several aspects of the menu based on our tastes and desire for some South Asian spices/fusion elements in the menu) and the food was just A++. Tamera was onsite the entire time, her setup was flawless and she made sure that my husband and I had a private appetizer tray in our private area (for a few moments together after the ceremony), that we actually had a chance to eat during the speeches and made sure that some awesome "take home boxes" were already packed and waiting in our get-away car at the end of the night. Thank you so much for being our ABSOLUTE favorite wedding vendor and for making such an important night in our lives so special and memorable. What stuck with me most is that our guests told us that they felt so well taken care of by being served such an elegant, flavorful and perfectly executed meal - that means so much when all the most precious people in our lives took the time to come together (some from very far away) to celebrate our milestone. Le Papillon was definitely the single best decision we made in our entire wedding planning.

I cannot express how happy we were with Le Papillon! As a bay area local, I have dined at their restaurant before and was not even aware that they had a catering service. All I can say is that they were amazing!!!
The Food: The food was amazin...
g and unlike any other catered meal I've ever had. Each plate was perfect. In addition, they were extremely accommodating to any dietary restrictions that people may have. From the appetizers to the main course everything was delicious. We got so many compliments on the food after our event.
The Service (Day-of): I do want to mention that we hired a couple additional staff for the day-of, but this was mainly because we had a lot of moving parts at our wedding. I think that their recommended number of waitstaff would have been appropriate if we did not have so many different things going on. The service at our cocktail hour and reception was great. Everyone was extremely professional and attentive. Le Papillon's reputation for superior service was one of the initial reasons that we went with them, and they did not disappoint.
The Service (During Planning): Me and my wedding planner worked with Tamara leading up to the wedding and she was great! Extremely responsive and helpful, Tamara answered any questions we had and made sure we were getting exactly what we were looking for. In addition, our scheduled tasting was amazing. At the tasting we were provided a ton of food and information. Tamara even arranged to have some rental linen and place setting options for me to look at.

t's a work of art in itself. The hors d'oeuvres were scrumptious and the dinner was incredible. We had filet mignon and prawns as our main entree and both were cooked perfectly. Le Papillon always provides excellent service, we couldn't have asked for more for our friends and family. It was such a pleasure working with Tamera, she was so receptive and helpful throughout the entire process. I really appreciated her professionalism and thoughtfulness. We got so many compliments on how good the food was at our wedding. We are more than pleased to have Le Papillon as our wedding caterer and will definitely return to eat at their restaurant. Thank you so much, Le Papillon, for a perfect wedding!

hey are a Picchetti recommended vendor, and as you can see, make incredibly fancy and delicious foods). We scheduled a tasting for our wedding and were blown away by the fine service (Mike and Tamera are the best!) and high quality food, amazing food!
When it came to the day of our wedding, Le Papillon handled the event seamlessly. Their staff truly WOWed us with the professional and attentive level of service provided and the food was of course delicious. I've been told by a few of our guests that our wedding food, catered by Le Papillon, was the BEST WEDDING FOOD they have ever had (from the beautiful and delectable variety of hors d' deuvres to the mouth-watering 'surf and turf' entree -- everything was beyond perfect!!)
I am recommending Le Papillon to all my friends/coworkers who are planning weddings - they are the absolute best and will make any event you host run smoothly and deliciously. Your guests will thank you for the delicious food too ;)

ality food. And their catering service is no different - the food was exceptional during our wedding. We initially didn't contact Le Papillon because we assumed they would be outside our budget. But they are reasonable and our guests came up to us numerous times during our wedding saying it was the best wedding food they have ever had. Tamera, the catering manager, is also super easy to work with and was so calm on the day.

ery many leftovers and there entire staff got to eat and because they promised either the one woman Tamara or the owner would be there on my wedding day no matter what and then on my wedding day some other lady was there until about halfway through the wedding Tamara finally showed up. This was crucial because I trusted Tamara and actually built quite a rapport with her. They lose the other star because several guests and my brother in law saw the team disabling our cake with lots of leftovers, but when we asked about it we actually didn't get any.
