Client Holiday Party Success!!

Catering Central was the team we hired for our Christmas Party in Indian Creek, Redwood Shores. The food was incredibly superb! Marcos prepared a delectable menu per our request for traditional Christmas fare, and we were surprised to discover how truly sumptuous each dish was! Our guests have been raving ever since!
Word also has it that our corporate office has heard of the success of the event brought on by this impressive array of gastronomic delights. Working with Marcos was a breeze considering how we fluctuated with head count and budget logistics. Through it all, he remained calm and flexible and on top of his game. His staff was quick and pleasant, the service was excellent. Thank you Meghan! We highly recommend Catering Central with no reservations whatsoever!

Consistent Quality!!

We use Marcos and Catering Central for 100+ person company lunches every so often, and our employees always have good things to say!  Marcos does a consistently quality job, on-time, and the price is right.   We have ordered something different every time, and it's all been good.  If you have a group to feed, they will work with you from menu selection through billing, definitely recommend!

Company Event is a Success!!

I've had Catering Central do two events here at Tesla.  Marcos went above and beyond to make sure that both of my events were a success.  His food also matched their excellent service throughout the whole planning - from picking out the menu, to working with our budget, to the day of the event and even afterwards.  Enzo also was very professional and was on top of things on the day of.

I can't wait to use them again for other events.

Quality Food and Service!

Came across Catering Central website while looking for caterers to bring lunch to our office every week.  Our employees are typically very picky but Marcos' meets or exceeds our expectations every time. Everything is always fresh and hot.  We only have about 40 or less employees but the portions are generous and it's nice to have friendly people delivering who make sure we are satisfied with our order.  I highly recommend Catering Central for any event!

Just Phone Him Now

Marcos and central catering provided a fantastic spread for our wedding reception. We were looking for a no fuss, tasty garden party and he delivered on all counts. The food was fantastic and servers he brought in to man the bar and pass through with the food were great, personable guys.

If you are looking for good food and great service, stop looking and just phone him now... ;)

Wedding Reception Celebration

Working with Catering Central as we put together a wedding reception/celebration for 150 people was a completely successful experience! It was truly a pleasure to work with Marcos and his team at every step along the way.The planning was seamless, the presentation was beautiful, the food was excellent... the whole event worked out just as we hoped it would! Before the event we met with Marcos personally various times, and he reviewed every single aspect with us in detail so that the food, the decor, the timing, and so much more...were all perfectly in place for the event itself. The menu was varied and delicious, so many guests complimented us on the selection of taste treats. His staff is well-trained and supportive, yet quietly invisible as they work. The tables and place settings were lovely, as we had envisioned. And his price quote compared to others was definitely affordable. We felt we got high quality work at a very reasonable price. I recommend Marcos and his Catering Central team without reservation!

I can't believe that this caterer exist. My company chose Catering Central to provide the food for an employee Retirement Party for 50 people. Marcos and his wonderful crew did an amazing job. We were trilled with the price and the variety of dishes we received. Their service is incredible and their food is AMAZING. You could really taste the difference in the quality of the food.

If you're having a special event and want to serve the most delicious food, you owe it to your guests to check out Catering Central. You'll be glad you did.

Thank you Marcos.

Holiday Luncheon

I arranged for Catering Central to cater a Holiday luncheon at our company. They were very profession and the food was excellent. Everyone loved it and I will definitely use them again. I was treated well and their customer service skills are as good as their catering skills. I will definitely use them again in the future! I would highly encourage any one looking for a caterer in Silicon Valley to contact them.

Special Place Race

Our guests at the Special Place Race (benefiting individuals with developmental disabilities) gave rave reviews of what you did with our organic zucchini, rosemary and sage. The rosemary chicken with lemon was a favorite! We can't wait to see what you do next year!

In Love With It All

I have been using Catering Central since they started and have been in love with all the dishes they create. All the dishes have a home made taste with a beautiful presentation. They are perfect for corporate events and personal events. I have used them for both!

Like One of the Family

We used Catering Central for an important family gathering, and the pulled pork was amazing, along with the potatoes au gratin and pasta dish! The fam loved the food so much that we chanted his name and made him join us at the dinner table! He was great, and well worth the price. We'll be using him again, I'm sure.

California Cuisine

I first sampled Marcos's cooking while he was a head chef at a top bay area restaurant and I find his style and flavors a fantastic mix of California cuisine and exotic culinary spices from around the globe. He offers complex dishes that taste amazing, as well as simple foods that taste complex. I have now used Catering Central's services for personal events and for occasional in office lunch meetings. There are never complaints from my coworkers as Marcos's offerings can generally accommodate everyone's taste. I would personally recommend Catering Central for both personal and business events. Marcos is also a really nice guy and is passionate about his food. His personality and his attention to detail definitely carry through to his cooking and service.

Outdoor Reception

We were holding a reception at our house for our new prospective in-laws and their friends. It was going to be a group of 50, and we wanted to make a good impression. We worked together with Catering Central to put together a menu that would work outdoors and appeal to a wide variety of tastes.

Catering Central knocked it out of the park. The food was great; the delivery was timely; and the setup and presentation worked very well. Our guests raved about the food and we were thrilled.

Kudos to Marcos Belfiore, owner of Catering Central. We wouldn't hesitate to use them again and give them a 5-star recommendation.

Relax! Catering Central Can Handle It

This company has great options available for any event your looking to throw. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly and I felt really comfortable calling back as many times as I did just to make sure everything was being done accordingly... needless to say I was a wreck before the day of the event came! Catering Central showed up on time and were incredibly efficient and I had nothing to do except relax and enjoy the company of friends and family. Thanks for the great work, I highly recommend them!!

3 Time Winner

I highly recommend Marcos, Lindy, and the rest of the Catering Central team. I have used them 3 times now, twice for corporate catered dinner parties, and once for a catered in-office lunch. I find Catering Central affordable, easy to work with, and a high in quality. I was able to put on a beautiful event with a tight budget with Marcos's expertise and connections. Give Marcos and his team a chance, and you will be sure to be satisfied with the quality of food, execution of the event, and affordability. Kudos, Catering Central!

Fundraising Raves

We have hired Catering Central for fundraising events. Marcos is always professional and timely. The food he prepares is so flavorful and different than other catering companies I have used in the past. At our events, people felt like they were eating at a fine dining restaurant. The food does not taste like it is being made for large quantities of people. Marcos' food dishes are delicious creations! I often wish he had a restaurant so that I could order and eat the food anytime I wanted. I recommended Catering Central to my father's company to use for business meetings. They ordered sandwiches and my dad cannot stop talking about the amazing quality and flavors of the sandwiches. To sum up: you cannot go wrong with Catering Central!

Delicious Lasagna

I ran into Chef Marcos while he was stocking his delicious lasagna at the Milk Pail, in Mountain View

A long time ago I lived in Argentina, and the empanadas that he makes are as close as I've come to the real thing here in the USA.

The lasagna was also great, its not smothered in cheese, but has the right mix. You can actually see what you are getting. I'll go back for more.

Rehearsal Dinner

Catering Central catered our rehearsal dinner on April 9, 2010. What a great decision! From the time I contacted him by phone, Marcos was friendly and helpful, yet the ultimate professional. He was very patient as I asked questions and made changes to the menu. It was hard to decide because everything on his web site looked so good! I was able to sample his vegetarian enchiladas ahead of time which they sell at the Milk Pail and my decision was made. Marcos visited our venue the day before and spoke to the event planner which I appreciated because I knew he would be well prepared. He arrived on time the day of the event and set up a beautiful buffet. Our guests all agreed that everything was delicious. I highly recommend Marcos and Catering Central and would not hesitate to use them again.

A Terrific Place

This is a terrific place. Had several samples of his cooking and it is fantastic [the soup and pasta sauce were wonderful]. His flavors are complex and well balanced. If you have the opportunity to have your event catered by him, you will not be disappointed.

Dessert Wows

I just had Catering Central just deliver Strawberry Shortcake and a wonderful Chocolate cake to our company in Santa Clara for 90 people. Everyone loved it and said it was the best chocolate cake they have ever had. This caterer is in Mtn View and most excellent. I can't wait to book another dessert and food event with them. Great job!
