"Very impressed with your professionalism and hard work for our Shocktop Beer event.
Your team helped to put this together from across the U.S. with nothing but a phone call.
Now that it's all over, i'm glad to know that calling you was definitely the right decision."

I wanted to send you a HUGE thank you to you and your crew for making Saturday's event a sucess. You definitely went ABOVE AND BEYOND for us in ways i can't even believe - from adding the open bar for free, to the custom beffet decor, to your patience when dealing with power issues. I cannot thank you enough! Your whole crew was a pleasure to work with - one of the nicests I've had the pleasure to deal with at an event. I really appreciate you dealing with all the changes and last minute requests.
Thanks again - and I can't wait to work with you guys on the next one!"
Enjoy the holidays,

Big City catered our wedding and my wife and I could not have been happier with the food and service. As it turns out, every single one of our ~100 guests was equally impressed. The food received endless compliments, deservedly so.
Since it was a summer afternoon ceremony and we were holding our reception outdoors, we opted for lighter fare along the lines of tapas. Our selection consisted of the Ahi Tataki, Vietnamese Shrimp & Mango Skewers, Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho Shots, Cajun Style Filet Mignon Canapes, Fig and Stilton Canapes, Watermelon Amuse Bouche, and Mini Chicken Wellingtons. Tray after tray after tray of consistently delicious and well-prepared food. This was complimented by a robust beverage service of perfectly paired wines, prosecco, Italian sodas, and coffee.
This was one aspect of our wedding that was trouble-free and well worth every penny we spent. Big City is not the most expensive, but it's not a thrifty option either. You get what you pay for, which is quite simply sublime, sophisticated food...served by a friendly, fast and unobtrusive wait staff.
Chef/owner Carole is fun and a culinary master, while Diane is fantastic with the operational end of things. They came highly recommended to us, and my wife and I are eager to add our voices to the chorus of praise for Big City!
Five stars aren't enough to recommend Big City Catering.They catered both my 80th and 90th birthday bashes,The food was splendid, covering all tastes... vegan and meat eaters-all exquisitely prepared and efficiently but discretely served by the most pleasant and charming servers. The buffet was beautifully set up to appeal to the eye as well as the appetite.There simply aren't words enough to tell you how happy I was and how excellent Carole is. Highly, Highly Recommended!!

I feel completely safe in Carole's hands. Her menus are inventive, and the food is always delicious. But more important to me, as the Foundation Assistant taking care logistics for all our events, she is the most professional caterer you could ask for. She is so organized and efficient there is barely time at all between pulling up and a beautiful spread - and her spreads are always gorgeous. She does it all silently and with the absolute minimum of disturbance. She responded instantly to every communication, and always with infinite patience. We threw our two events at her a week beforehand, and every request we posed to her she made happen, including dietary restrictions and vendor requirements. She is always exactly on time, despite our location in the middle of the most atrocious parking - anyone located in downtown SF knows how valuable is an intimate knowledge of the city and its challenges when it comes to choosing your vendors, and Carole definitely has that. She also returned the same day at exactly the time we requested to pick up all her equipment. She was on top of everything from the very beginning, applying careful attention to every detail. I know that once I have engaged Carole's services, I don't have to think about catering anymore - I trust her entirely. This extends to a trust in her environmental record, something extremely important to our mission. We can be sure she will do everything she can to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Finally the generosity of her amazing prices makes it clear that the high quality of the service Carole provides stems in large part from a deep love for what she does.
