My husband and I have been fans of The Girl & The Fig restaurant in downtown Sonoma for years. When we realized they did catering packages for our Sonoma venue, we knew we had to at least give the tasting a try. It was super easy to schedule an...
d seriously everything we tried was so delicious. The only “negative” was that we had to choose a select number of appetizers, starters, entrees, etc to try - but we wanted to have it all! Our tasting was totally consistent with what we'd expect based on our experience with the actual restaurant. After accommodating several cake/dessert tastings, we actually ended up also booking with the sister bakery, Crisp Bakeshop, for our wedding cake and late night cookies too.
We were a little concerned that the overall quality and taste of the food on the day of the wedding wouldn’t be up to par with our tasting just given the scale and mass production for our guests. To our delight, the food was just as good as we remembered, and all of our guests raved about how it was the best food they ever had at a wedding. Some of our personal faves: the pork belly and avocado toast passed appetizers, the classic fig and goat cheese salad, and the beef filet and salmon entrees. Crisp Bakeshop could accommodate multiple flavors per layer, which solved our indecision problem.
The whole experience along the way was pretty painless. We interacted with Andrea and Jesse when we initially booked, and Olivia as we firmed up our order and day-of details. All the ladies were patient when we had questions, responsive, and totally on top of it. The Girl and The Fig Caters is truly a well oiled machine when it comes to the whole wedding planning and execution process, and a vendor you can trust to deliver without any added drama or stress.
