Simply Tasteless – A few words to express my experience towards east bay catering
- Terrible food
- No concept of time
- Very unprofessional
- Highly NOT RECOMMENDED
I had a lunchin at my company not too long ago so I saved my appetite since it was a thank you from our boss. Supposedly they were supposed to have everything delivered by 12:00pm, but that was not the case. We waited until 12:30 until my coworker had to call and see what time we would be expecting them since they were already late. They told us that they were on their way and will be here in 10 minutes due to "traffic" on the bay bridge. Honestly I commute to work on Bay Bridge everyday and traffic at 12:30 pm?!?!
As we waited and or hunger started to get overwhelming then we noticed it was already 1:05pm and they were still not here!!! My coworker called again then they explained that they could not find our location. Already very hungry, annoyed, down right mad. They finally arrived at 1:20 pm. Almost 2 hours late! The delivery guy was clueless and exclaimed that if we had a complaint just call the office and someone can speak to you.
Hoping that the food would compensate for the tardiness, but the food was just as their service is. TERRIBLE! Food was cold, tastless, down right NASTY! I wouldve have been better of fasting or getting food from a burrito truck.
All in all I will NEVER recommend this place to anyone and I hope this posting will prevent anymore unhappy and dissapointed customers. If I could I would have given them negative stars as a rating....
Great way to start off your day! – East Bay Catering catered a breakfast meeting for my staff of 35 last week. They came to my house in SF, even though they are in Oakland. They set everything up for us and the food was great. Even the coffee was perfect. They were on time and the delivery guy was so nice.
The best Italian Food I've Ever Had! – Who would have thought that the best Italian food i've ever had woudl come from a catering company? I went to a work function last night for work, and I was not looking forward to it because our company always has really bad food, but the food from these guys was awesome! Their pasta was so good and not too heavy. The chicken (i think it was rosemary or something) tasting so perfect. It was juicy and tender.
The sides were good too, but I think the fresh bread did it for me. Everything about the food was pefect. And the girl who planned it said it wasn't even that expensive.
Go East Bay Catering! Like I said, the best Italian food i've ever had came from them!
Best BBQ! – I attended a friends BBQ last week, and oh my gosh the food was so good. I thought he had done the cooking, but I realized he didn't even have a bbq! He said that East Bay Catering provided the food. It was so good. I mean, I think of myself as an excellent bbqer, but wow, the ribs were great. Their "secret sauce" was so tasteful. The potato salad was also a big success. I am totally going to use these guys for my summer bbq's.
Holiday Party – My company, which is an accounting firm out of Oakland, had its' anual holiday party last week. East Bay Catering provided the appetizers, beverage and service. They did such a great job! I was in charge of putting the party together, and I am new to the compnay. They totally helped me with everything, and the party ran perfectly. All the guests loved the food and the staff. I will use East Bay Catering again, even for our small montly lunches that we have catered.
My suprise birthday party – My boyfriend threw me a suprise birthday party at his parents house in SF. This company did the food, and it was fantastic. We had appetizers, and then a full dinner. My boyfriend found them thew a friend who used them for his wedding. Everything was perfect. The people were so nice, and my boyfriend said it was fairly priced.
Editorial Review – From weddings to corporate events, these caterers outfit the bay area with elegant dishes, various wines and an attentive stuff.
Welcome Home! – My wife and I had a house warming party last week. We bought a new house and had to move in right away. We wanted to have a house warming party before the holidays, so we asked around and heard that East Bay Catering was very good. THey sure were! Our family LOVED the food. We had a buffet lunch on a sunday afternoon, and it was perfect.
Lunch Meeting – I work for a large company in San Francicso. I had to coordiate an annual lunch for 55 executives. East Bay Catering delivered with style! Everyone loved the food and the presentation. It was so yummy, we're having them do our company holiday party!
East Bay Catering did a huge barbeque at my house for Labor Day Weekend. We had appetizers, then a barbeque by the pool. They even provided a bartender with fun summertime themed drinks. Our party was a success, and our friends can't stop talking about it. East Bay Catering will certainly be taking care of my New Year's party.
