We live in Los Altos and had never heard of Cardel Catering. My husband and I decided to have our 50th wedding anniversary in our backyard. We were a little nervous about taking it on ourselves, so we hired Pinnacle Productions from San Jose to help put on the party. Couldn't understand why they decided to hire a catering company from Alameda. After our party, we knew why. Everything they served from the Grilled Cheese Sandwich appetizer to the S'mores and Ice Cream cones for dessert brought back memories for us and our friends. The main three courses were excellent and the servers were wonderful. We would hire Scott and his crew whenever we want to impress our guests. — Mady K., Los Altos, CA


Cardel Catering did a fantastic job for our party. The Lobster Rolls and Short Rib Sliders flew off the plate, but the best part, besides the excellent food, was that they handled everything. And their staff was great!. I would use them again in a heartbeat. — Kit R., Alameda, CA


Scott and the team were FABULOUS to work with! Everybody was very communicative and made a beautiful custom menu for our wedding! They made our special day even more special! You have to have the Lobster Rolls!!! :) Thanks, Scott!!! — Joey M., Oakland, CA


We used Cardel Catering for our wedding. They handled everything from table rentals and linen placements to Lamb Sliders and Smoked Salmon. There was never a time when I needed to worry about anything. All without a kitchen at the location!  They are a major reason why the wedding was a huge success. — Robert M., CA


They are just wonderful, I can't say enough good things about them! Last night I held a party for 200 for a very special community event, and wow, did Cardel Catering ever deliver! I had worked with Cardel Catering before and was eager to hire them again as they did such a splendid job the last time. This time they really outdid themselves. The food was scrumptious and beautifully presented. Scott, Constance, Kimberly and all the staff were just a pleasure to work with from the beginning. They were completely professional about everything, flexible, and had great follow through. Constance is a dream to work with. She came out to look at our venue, and as soon as she got there I knew that that there was nothing to worry about. Our celebration involved many different people working together and Constance was just lovely to all of us. She helped us to think through many of the different issues around having the party in the venue we had selected, with limited set up time, and it just came off beautifully. Throughout the evening I got compliments on the food and literally all day long I have been told what a wonderful event it was and how much it meant to everyone who attended. I will choose Cardel Catering again and again for all my events. Their product is good, their performance is excellent. Scott Cardel has consistently had the sweetest, nicest staff who show they really care. The love is in the food and the care with which they will execute every aspect of your event. You are the best xoxoxo — Robyn S., San Francisco, CA

Hi Scott and Constance,

I just wanted to say thank you for helping us produce such a wonderful reception last Thursday. The food was delicious and we really appreciated the time that you spent tailoring the appetizers to the event theme — I think it was a really special element for our guests. Thanks for being such great friends to the Club J!— at Commonwealth Club of California


We hired Cardel Catering for a 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration at our home. Scott and his staff helped us produce the perfect event with amazing, fresh, beautiful food, spectacular service and the friendliest staff you could imagine.

I have produced corporate events and worked with caterers and staff around the Bay Area and you can't beat Cardel Catering for price, quality, and service. I can't speak highly enough about the planning, support, presentation, and the fact that they left our kitchen cleaner than they found it! All the party supplies were delivered and picked up with no hassle to us, and all our guests raved all night about the food! — Heidi G., Walnut Creek, CA


With only a month prior to a surprise retirement party for my husband, I met with Connie to see if they could assist with my party plans. The word assist does not even come close to the phenomenal service I received. Once I had some menu ideas, Connie, along with Scott, the owner, provided a tasting to help me firm up the menu. Each item served was fresh, fabulous, and perfect for our party.

Since this was such a special occasion, I arranged for two of the staff to work the party passing appetizers and setting up the buffet and doing anything else that was needed to make the evening a success. Connie and Christine took over my kitchen. They were professional and very accomodating to everyone. At the end of the evening, you would never had known there was a party as everything in the house was clean and in place. Even the trash from the evening was disposed of.

The food was a hit and I have never been so excited to see my guests go back for seconds and even thirds. This made for few leftovers which was fine with me. I would not hesitate to call Cardel Catering again for my party needs. It is so refreshing to have someone else prepare the high quality food and serve all the guests so I could enjoy the evening just being the hostess. — Linda M., San Leandro, CA


Cardel Catering offers excellent service with wonderfully fresh and scrumptious food. All staff are well trained and offer great customer service. Thank you for catering our Pathways volunteer appreciation events.   We look forward to your food every year! — Missy G., Mountain View, CA


The food was very delicious, healthy, and well presented. The staff was very professional. Each dish from appetizers to side dishes to coffee and deserts - there were many very tasty options in perfectly portioned sizes. I would definately recommend Cardel for any event. — Christine W., San Jose, CA


Cardel Catering is absolutely wonderful. The food is outstanding, the customer service is fabulous, and they are very good at working within a budget. I use them frequently for work events and have gotten tons of feedback from clients about the great food, and I love them so much I recently used them as my wedding caterer! We had a sit down dinner for 140 and everyone raved about the food- and mine is a picky picky crowd. Scott is a joy to work with- Cardel Catering is my number one catering pick in SF. — Oona M., San Fransisco, CA


Cardel Catering is a fantastic firm. They catered numerous functions for us and have always provided outstanding food that my guests and colleagues continue to mention months later (Hello, Lamb Sliders!) Scott Cardel seems to have a "magic picker" when it comes to hiring staff: everyone on his team is professional, skilled, and great at the rapidly vanishing art of customer service. They were even able to whip up an imaginatively delicious Cuban/Soul food meal for our commitment celebration that wowed everyone. I'd love to keep writing, but I have to go find out how I can get my hands on more of his appetizers, right now. — Ray P., Oakland, CA
