Best of SF Bay!Reviewed on 12/01/2010 Michelle R
Melons is 5 star restaurant quality combined with the ability to execute a banquet-sized event! Shannon is the initial contact with the client and she responds to emails seemingly as fast as you cant write them...exactly what you want when the caterer is your largest wedding expense! Their organization, orchestration, wonderful staff...are everything you could want. The food at our wedding was absolutely perfect and we had many positive comments during and after the wedding from our guests. They employ skilled chefs that work with you to develop the menu and then execute the meals during your event. The attention to detail was amazing! There was never an empty glass, line for food or hors d'oeuvres. The other remarkable thing is that their staff absolutely blends seamlessly into the event - everything was taken care of and the staff was transparent in their operation. I suspect that they are probably one of the top gourmet catering services in the Bay Area. Highly recommended and would hire them again!
Best wedding food everReviewed on 9/07/2010 Yume N
I decided to go w/ Melon's as recommended by my event coordinators at Terra Gallery. We had our tasting and I was blown away. We were going for an Asian fusion menu and they knocked it out of the park. The chef was very accommodating to any changes or small tweeks that we requested. My guests are still raving about the food today. The food itself definitely deserves 5 stars, but the catering service I'll give a 3 since they really took a while bringing out the food. After each plate I kept looking around to see what the hold up was and it really delayed my schedule of events at my wedding. It would be nice if things were seamless but there was significant time that passed between courses. That was the only aspect of my wedding that I thought was stressful and you really don't want to stress at your wedding if at all possible.
