We hire Out of the Blue and we were so incredibly pleased on so many levels. They are very reasonably priced, and we really wanted to stick to a budget as catering can get so expensive. From the first tasting meeting, to quick communication and great food, it was such an easy experience and my husband and I were so grateful for that! The staff on the day of wedding was so professional and went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of as well as our guests.
After looking at what seemed like endless caterers, my husband and I went with Out of the Blue Catering for our wedding – and between the food and the service, we could not recommend them more highly. Our catering manager, Michele, was incredible. She worked with us tirelessly on our menu, offering suggestions and making adjustments until everything sounded perfect -- and everything we tried at our tasting was even better than they sounded. We genuinely loved every single appetizer and entrée we tasted (we highly recommend the tuna tartare cones and the mini cheeseburgers, in particular). Even better, we found that the quality of the food remained consistent and tasted just as good at the wedding itself, something our wedding planner told us is not always the case. Our guests raved about everything they served – especially the mini donuts they made on-site for dessert. Brides and grooms, do yourselves a favor and GET THE DONUT MACHINE. It was such a fun, unique treat for the wedding; and it kept serving hot, delicious goodies well into the evening to keep our guests happy all night long. And on top of the excellent food, the service we experienced with Michele and her team, both throughout the process and during the wedding itself, was truly unparalleled. Everyone was super professional and genuinely seemed to care about the work they put into the evening. They were definitely a huge part of making our wedding perfect!
Thank you for your services.
I have used many catering services but among them OUT OF THE BLUE CATERING is the best. They offered us delicious foods and beverages with low price compared to others. Perhaps their price was low but the quality of the food was impressive and better than any other catering services.
Hands down, the best caterer we could have ever hoped for! Out Of The Blue Catering team are super sweet, accommodating, offer a wonderful service, and food at a great price! In addition to reasonable prices, and great service (timely and reliable), they are also very discrete when delivering the food for our reception buffet (we had no idea that they had come or picked up and left at the end of the evening). We had wonderful hot food at our wedding, and a great selection! We really appreciate it. Thanks, The Williams
Where do I begin? Thank god our planner brought us to Out of the Blue. We thought we'd found the caterers the day prior to our meeting with them, but holy moly, thank goodness we waited to check Out of the Blue out. We met Michele at the tasting and fell in love with her. The food was to die for (like Michelin star quality, truly) and the set-up was wonderful at the tasting. We were treated like royalty and even enjoyed a bottle of bubbly to celebrate. Throughout the menu planning process, Michele was nothing but helpful and supportive. Any question we had he was quick to answer and made all adjustments however we wanted them. We had stations and we kept getting compliments all night on how amazing the food was. And the staff was great, as well. The only "complaints" we had were the serving staff was too good -- drinks were placed on tables and they were swiped when people hadn't finished drinking them - ha! And a friend was bummed the food had been cleared because she hadn't had the chance to try something. Not bad complaints, really! Thank you, Out of the Blue, for making our wedding truly an event to remember. I wish I'd gotten to enjoy more of the food but as the bride, it's always hard
WOW!!!!! Martha of Blue Catering and Events was nothing short of spectacular. She is a professional on every level. From the very first meeting she settled our nerves with her knowledge and expertise of the wedding industry. She was Professional, friendly and oh so sweet. Each and every meeting with her, we knew that we were in great hands. She was so good with our Setup the day of, with the vendors before hand and especially with having our guests and bridal parties where they needed to be on time. From the Setup to the rehearsal to the speeches and first dances Martha and her team were impeccable. Im eternally grateful for the peace that my husband and I were able to experience because Blue Catering and Events handled every detail. I cannot thank you enough Martha, My guests commented repeatedly on how flawless everything went and it was all because of you . Thank you for making our wedding day, Oct 22nd 2017 one of the best days of our lives. I am tearing up now just thinking of it and you are one of the biggest reasons for this. THANK YOU!!!!
Great taste! I will forever bless the day my friend and I stop by to have a lunch at “Out of the Blue Catering”. The service delivery was superb. Though I have eating varieties here, the chicken burger in particular has continued to make me pay an unending visit. I always get value for my money here. Thanks for your services
I was actually very apprehensive about choosing Out Of The Blue Catering & Events for my purpose. But once they convinced me about the service they're going to provide me, I decided to to avail their amenities and find out whether it was my worth my money and time. To be honest, they didn't disappoint me. Their professionalism was top-notch with multiple facilities they provided me. They listened to my demands very carefully and acted out their action in arranging my catering and function arrangement very meticulously. I was stunned when they actually valued my requirements over silly matters and acted out diligently while providing me with their expertise. In one word, I couldn't be more satisfied. I would highly recommend them for their stupendous service.
The best ever, at first ai was skeptical about the service, I'm so happy I gave chance and they did the best. I strongly recommend.. Out of the Blue Catering & Events gave me best event catering ever !
I recently got married and used Out of the Blue Catering to cater my wedding. I originally booked with another company who canceled on my about 90 days before the wedding so when I called Michele and her team, I was in a panic! Michele was so responsive, helpful and match the price of my previous caterer. I was SOOO relieved when I found her. We got married at a private residence in La Jolla, Michele and her team came to the house for our food tasting. I loved this because it was very personal and she was able to see the venue and make decisions on how many tables we needed, where to put everything, etc. We had Out of the Blue help us with all of our linens, cups/plates, tables, chairs and food. We had an afternoon wedding, so we did heavy appetizers and desert and got tons of compliments on the food! Everything looked absolutely beautiful. My favorite thing about Michele was that she always returned my calls, texts and e-mails quickly and was very easy to get a hold of. I would absolutely recommend Out of the Blue for your catering needs. They did a fabulous job on our wedding and the day went just perfect!! From : Anna William Date : 13/3/2018
