Hi Kelly,
WOW! What an amazing team you have. I can’t tell you how many of my volunteers were just so impressed by your staff-- and attendees too! They truly are such gems and I loved working with them.

A big thank you for the wonderful spread and attention to detail for Danny's memorial.❤️ You thought of everything..... water, creamer.....
My mother loved the plate and actually wanted to know if she could keep it. Roger loved the bacon swirls! That band bread was absolutely delicious! Kelly, the #10 cookies and football brownies were just the best idea! My mother truly lived those cookies! Thanks for having Hannah come and pick up the serving platters......that saved me a trip. There is one basket that got left in the kitchen that I'll drop by this week.

Thank you again for everything,
Adrienne, Roger, and Helen


Hello Ladies!
Looks like we have some new PFF addicts here. Lunch went over really well and I might get fired if you don't come back again soon. ;)
Thank you so much for accommodating so we could enjoy this deliciousness.

Thanks!
Darcy


Kelly,
I can’t thank you enough for everything that you did for Tuesday’s reception!!!
I received an overwhelming and tremendous amount of praise for the catering and the overall event, which would not have been possible without you! Everyone LOVED the chocolate-dipped raspberries in the martini glasses. My mentor, who knows I am waiting to hear from grad schools, said to me, “Are you sure you want to go to grad school? Because you know how to throw one helluva party and maybe should stick with this.”, lol. I took it as a compliment, ha ha.
I will be forever grateful to you. Please also let Harry know how much I appreciate all that he did as well!
You might start getting a whole lot of UCOP business as a result of this! Nina, the guest of honor, was in tears afterward, she loved it so much.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I will submit my first Yelp review ever to sing my praises of you!
With gratitude,
Veronica


Kelly and Everyone!

The food, presentation and service you provided for our event was outstanding!!! The chocolate cake got RAVE reviews - thank you so much.

Hey Kelly
Wow, finally had the chance to email to say thanks again, the catering from Pacific was wonderful. Everyone raved about the combination of Salmon and chicken, the salad, everything. Oh and don’t forget the cupcakes, those were dangerously good, I had one and wanted the whole tray.

Bottom line, our event turned out great thanks to you and the folks at Faction Brewing.

Hi Pacific Fine Food!
Thank for the great food last week, we enjoyed everything and got good feedback from the meeting attendees as well - the green juice on the first morning was especially popular!

Thanks again and we'll definitely recommend you/use you again for future events!

Good Morning Kelly,
Thank you for the not only beautiful but delicious food making yesterday’s event a success. Everyone loved it and commented on how beautifully prepared everything was in addition to the great tastes. There was even a non-salmon lover that loved your salmon!

At the end of the event I was informed our CIO’s assistant based out of SF would be relocating to NY and yesterday was her last day here. As a token we decided to present her with the beautiful plate you decorated for our event.

I’d also like to commend Elsa for being such a great help. The guests were very pleased with her customer service as she was proactive at ensuring everyone was taken care of and happy at the food and beverage station. She definitely went the extra mile and it was noticed by everyone. I also would like to sincerely thank her for the ride to Oakland as my car is in the shop with transmission problems and getting home at the end of the day is quite a hassle. The comfortable ride to the Oakland bart station on her way to Alameda was definitely a huge help to me after the long day. I hope this was OK. Elsa is truly a great person and wonderful at her job.

We love Pacific Fine Foods and I can’t wait until our next successful event together! Many many thanks for everything!

Have a wonderful day!

Dear Kelly,
The reception was a big success—thank you! Everyone loved the Scotties, a brilliant idea, and the hot tea was also a big hit. I thought everything was delicious and from the way people hovered close to the food it appears they felt the same.

Till Thursday!

Dear Kelly,
Thank you so much for making our event so beautiful, delicious, and successful. Laura was so appreciative and it made her retirement celebration very memorable.

I received so many comments on how lovely everything was, and how much they enjoyed the food. I've passed along your website information to quite a few people. Thank you also to your staff who did a fabulous job, and also to Jara whose music made the ambience even brighter.

Hey Kelly,

Wow, the dinner was fantastic and Helen and Will were amazing. The house was left spotless and everything completely arranged so I just went to bed and got up early for our flight to Hawaii—just what I wanted! OMG the food was good! Bignet delicious, the mini tarts amazing, as was everything.

Thanks a million. We all had a lot of fun.

Dear Kelly,

Thanks so much for making my sister’s birthday so special. Everything contributed to making it successful from the canopies to the “grass floor” to the festive banners and colorful table cloths. But the stand outs by far was the delicious food presented in such a lovely way. YUM!!! Matthew did a great job – professional, helpful and friendly.

Do you make a habit of under promising and over delivering? You certainly did for my party and I couldn’t be more pleased. It was great!

Thanks, thanks, thanks,

Thank you for lunch yesterday. It was one of your best menus; it was simple, yet filling and healthy;

The applesauce was the big hit; everyone enjoyed it. One person told me - it was like eating apple pie without the crust!

Dear Kelly

You and your staff at Pacific Fine Foiod Catering Co. could not have wowed people more at our Donor party on Saturday, March 7. Virtually every plate made people laugh because of the creativity of the cat- related themes. Chocolate mice on cheese! Those chicks hatching out of the eggs! Incredible! What a wonderful first impression it made for the guests to see that clever table! And, of course, everything was delicious, too. Oh, and let’s not forget Grumpy Cat!

I’m sure many of these guests told you directly how great the table was, but I just wanted you to know people told me over and over how impressed and tickled they were. Please accept our heartfelt thanks for donating the ingredients, your time and your creativity to help us thank the folks who made it possible to keep saving kitties. Please also let all the people who worked on this at Pacific Fine Food Catering that we are so grateful. I’m sure we will all still be smiling months from now whenever we think of that table.

Warmest regards to you and your staff,
Elaine


Hi Kelly,

I just wanted you to know that Thursday's event was a huge success-all the food was gone! We had a big crowd and people stayed for the reception-best one ever. I am already planning on next year!

The cake was amazing, both visually and gastronomically-fresh, super tasty, and decorated in the perfect colors!

Your crew was great too-really nice!

Thanks again,
Lisa


Dear Kelly and Angela,

Thanks so much for the wonderful Holiday Luncheon! All of our guests appreciated the tasty dishes and presentation. I’ve received good feedback from the group and our General Manager was quite happy with the menu and quality (and working within our budget)!! Both of the vegetarian dishes were quite a hit with everyone – I think the stuffed squash was the first item to go! Thank you again and hope we have the opportunity to work with you again. I truly appreciate all of your assistance in planning & on delivering a memorable event.

Happy Holidays!!!
Laura


KUDOS to The PFF Crew!!

Hello Kelly,

I wanted to make sure to thank you again for putting on a fantastic spread for our Grifols First Friday Holiday Event!! Folks couldn’t stop talking about the cute & tasty treats on the Christmas Tree, the yummy Cranberry Spritzer (the non-alcohol folks were stoked to have something especially for them and much better than just waters and sodas) and of course all the savory goodies ( I so missed your Zucchini Cakes!!). I am glad we ordered up so that we had leftovers for associates to enjoy over the weekend.

Also, I cannot say enough thanks to the fantastic crew very well lead my yourself and Erin. They were all professional and helpful and super friendly. PFF shines in the world of corporate caterers…a breath of fresh air.

Thank you,
Tonya


Kim's Wedding in Alameda

Dear Kelly,

I want to send you this long overdue thank you for the beautiful and delicious dishes as well as the servers that you and your staff provided for Kimberly and Caleb's wedding. It is impossible to express what a relief it was once I knew the food would be taken care of and more importantly that it was in your capable hands. The "plate menu" was adorable and such a nice touch as were the attractive serving dishes and gorgeous presentation. It made it really special - perfect for a wedding! And to think you don't do weddings! It couldn't have been lovelier. Ken and I and Kimberly and Caleb are all grateful you made an exception for us!

Our sincerest thanks,
Candy and Ken G


THANK YOU!
Dear Kelly,
My apologies for not writing to you sooner to say thank you, thank you, thank you!

Everything was beautiful and fun and all the guests (kids and adults) commented on how much they loved the food, the presentation and the event. I so appreciated all the extra attention you put into the details and your willingness to work flexibly with me and Mira Belle. I thought Erin and Melissa were wonderful and my guests also told me how wonderful they were.

Best, Amy


Hi Kelly,

Well it was another wonderful reception for the Annual CTP lecture. Usually Diana is the point person and at the event, but she had prior family commitments.

So this was my first time seeing your crew in action and they did wonderfully. And the food was spot on...my personal favorites were the shrimp cocktail, Korean beef/shittake mushroom lettuce wraps, stuffed tomatoes and mushrooms, all the desserts and the hummus cups. Well I pretty much loved the whole menu because I had the cheese too. I went home full.

When your ready, please feel free to send me an invoice.

Thanks again,
Liz


Kelly
Just wanted to thanks for our so delicious dinner buffet for my husbands 75 birthday. Everyone really enjoyed the foods especially the soup. We have received so many compliments on your behalf. And it was a joy to work w you in the planning of menu choices-- so easy When things go that smoothly and turn out spectacularly life is good! You and your staff are exceptional

Much appreciated Jeanne and Tom H


You and Pacific Fine Foods gave my husband and me the party of our dreams on July 28! The food was delicious, varied, beautiful and plentiful. It exceed my expectations.

Your staff in Chef Philip, Melissa, Erin and Kristin was extraordinary (I hope I spelled their names correctly). They anticipated things I hadn't thought of. They gently maneuvered me duringthe party, when I needed it. They worked seamlessly together. The table and bar were decked out beautifully and kept the food and drinks refreshed.

And the night before, Erin was indispensable for me that night for Tim's dinner. She worked well with me in prepping and serving, cleaned up from cocktails, helped me organize the the kitchen at the end for the dinner, and plan the drinks for the next day. I loved this woman! She truly enabled me to serve a great dinner for 16 people, and not get frazzled in the process.

I cannot recommend your company enough. And the proof is in the email below from one of our guests who has now hired you for their party! I love it!

Thank you, Thank you!
Melissa


I can't believe how beautiful and magical last night was. Thank you ever so much! I'm working on your replaced check and should have it next week- I've got gorgeous photos of your food- a true work of art and will email them next week too. You out-did yourself... But for now, have a very nice weekend.



Kelly and company!

Just a note of great thanks for a wonderful late afternoon buffet you put on for the celebration of our new priest at Christ Episcopal Church. It was enjoyed by and I received so very many compliments, to many to share. Please thank all involved and I look forward to working with you again when the need arises.

Blessings,
Sheri



Dear Kelly,

I am writing to express our deepest gratitude for the fabulous meal and display you (and your staff) arranged for us at the 100th Sather Reception on February 7th. We have received compliments from near and far about the delicious spread, and the beautiful arrangements. We are so proud and lucky to have you as our caterer, and we are forever appreciative of all you do for our department(s)...

Gary



Dear Amanda,

Thanks for passing along my contact info! And Kelly, the catering this evening was as splendid and delicious as usual - you're magic!

Best, Wendy



Hi Kelly !

We just wanted to write and say THANK YOU for an amazing night. The entire menu was outstanding, from start to finish, and everyone kept raving about your wonderful creations. I'm afraid the appetizers were too good, and people filled up during the cocktail hour and didn't have big enough appetites for all the sumptuous mains that followed :)

We loved working with you and it was such a pleasure to finally meet. You and your staff were so great, and really made our night extra special. Thank you again for all the special touches you added to make our event seem so unique and personal.

I hope your mother received good news from the doctors this week. I was so sad to hear that you were going through such stressful times, and want you to know that we are keeping you and your mother in our prayers.

Thank you again, and please keep in touch. We would love to take you out for a night of the DC food scene if you are ever in town.

All the best, Peter & Bob



Dear Kelly & Team,

Once again, you have knocked our socks off. You never stop being amazing. You are so creative and inventive. Baby-sizing everything was amazing. The food delicious. The presentation with the vintage toys was spectacular. The basket of animal cracker cookies and Teddy Bear topped it off ! Sue was very pleased and overwhelmed. Kudos to you for making her baby shower not only memorable, but very special.

We managed to really surprise her and everyone complimented the cook. I told them, as usual, it is all by Pacific Fine Foods.

Just amazing! Thank you.
Sherry



Dear Kelly,

Thank you for doing such a very fine job with the catering this past weekend. Every meal was lavish and delicious, and the attendees were constantly complimenting the food. I also enjoyed meeting both Phillip and Sean. I hope I'll have occasion to work with you all again!

Yours,
Ken



Dear Kelly,

You guys are amazing. Thank you so much for handling the catering for our conference this past weekend. Every logistical point, both timing and location, was met with utmost accuracy and grace. Philip was, as I'm sure you know, fantastic. And, of course, the food was absolutely delicious -- everyone loved it!

Thank you again for putting working with us; we'll look forward to doing it again next year!

Best,
Ben



Kelly-

Thank you so much for a wonderful meal. Everyone was raving about the salmon and the lentils. Not only was the food delicious, your servers were wonderful (as always!)

Thank you for helping me look good in my new job. You've got a standing job with EdSource! Our next meeting is December 14. The Board has already asked that I make sure to book your services again so pencil us in or let me know what I need to do to book you for the holiday season.

Thanks again.
Christine



Kelly,

Everyone loved the "progressive dinner" that you organized for the St. George Spirits tour on Sept 12.
It was a real hit -- and delicious.
Thank you so much!

Mary



I am never using another catering company! Everything was perfect. I would love to talk to you about upcoming events too.

Also, I wanted to tip your (awesome) staff but they said it made sense for me to include in the invoice. I didn't carefully review the invoice but I do want to make sure that they receive tips. How do you prefer I handle all of that.

Thank you so-so-so much.

Warmly, Amelia



Hi Kelly,

Everything was perfect yesterday and we received superior service from the young gentlemen with black hair and glasses, and a slim young female with long brown hair (she has a pink lotus flower tattoo on her wrist). They were both OVER the top helpful and QUIET!!!! : )

I would like to add a $15 tip for each of them ($30 total) when you revise this invoice.

Thanks so much and I will try to turn this around as soon as you send it back.

Sarah



Dear Kelly & Team,

Thank you for taking such good care of me during these past couple of weeks with my catering needs. You and your team went above and beyond, and it was greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
ShayJ



Hi Kelly,

Our party thru the words of our son was a "huge success" and the food you prepared has received all A+ ratings. Please pass this along to your two servers. Nyanda and Trish were indispensable that day to keep everything on track. The art work on the plate photographed beautifully and we were both happy that day.

Larry and Teri



Dear Kelly,

Thanks so much for arranging the beautiful 90th birthday picnic. I know outdoor affairs require a lot more work and I’ll always appreciate it.

Love, Mary V



Dear Kelly,
It shouldn't have taken me a week to let you know this, but everything was a smashing success last weekend. Thanks again to your entire teams for all the hard work they put in. We are, as always, very pleased to be working with you (as I hope is clear by the fact that we convinced both the German Department to use you for their conference, and the English department to use you for a few different things!).

All best, Ryan



Kelly
the food you provided for Monique's meeting today was outstanding - it was one of the best meals I have ever had!!! I loved the salmon - It was so flavorful and moist - I would be interested in how it was prepared if you can share your secret...

-Linda J




Hi Kelly,
AWSOME !!!!!! Everyone loved the food and presentation two the HR VP's thought everything was great and looked / tasted great. One even remembered going to an event you catered.

Thanks again.

Dear Kelly & Team,
Thank you so much for a beautiful celebration of life event for our beloved uncle Lirmar! The family and friends who attended were touched by the kindness of your wonderful team!

To Kelly and the Crew of Pacific Fine Foods:

Thank you again for catering our Post-NSA / Espionage event. The food was amazing! We expected nothing less after receiving such high praise from one of your other clients. The delicacies, combined with a beautiful presentation that flawlessly matched our theme, would have made Sean Connery (007) envious. And did I mention the salad? Even something as simple as a salad had people talking.

You were punctual, thorough, and delivered more than we imagined. The additional staff we hired through you were gracious and helpful. We would recommend you in a heartbeat.

Kindest Regards,
-Brian R.




Dear Kelly,
I want to thank you and your folks at Pacific Fine Foods for the catering at my event last night (Nemea Center - Classics, UCB). It was lovely, the food was exactly what our donors wanted (many, many raves from Greeks and non-Greeks alike), and it was the perfect amount. Please convey my thanks to your staff and I look forward to future catering occasions.

All best and happy holidays,
-Kim S

Kelly,
OMG - those mozzarella veggie sandwiches were TO DIE FOR! I had a co-worker say it was the best sandwich she had EVER eaten. :-) I also adored the salad with sweet potatos and walnuts. So delicious.

Thanks for the awesome service, as usual.

Dear Kelly,

Just wanted to say I thought that was an excellent menu you guys prepared for the Classics/AHMA welcome reception on yesterday afternoon (Sept. 1). Delicious and easily consumable finger-food, nothing too heavy — just what we wanted.

Many thanks,

Kelly!

It all went very well and the family was overwhelmed by the attendance, the signage, and last but not least, the gorgeous and tasty assemble of food that you provided. The weather started out worrisome and then turned out to be beautiful. I tried several of your pastries and they were so delicious.

Phillip was delightful and very helpful too. All in all, it went very well and I appreciate all of your assistance! I am delighted to have met you and look forward to hiring you for future events!

Dear Kelly, Nyanda and the rest of the Pacific Fine Food Crew,

Thank you so much for the catering services and staffing you provided at our wedding on July 30th. The spread of snacks to tide our guests over was just what we asked for, and the oil cloth table coverings perfectly suited our décor.

We appreciated your flexibility in working with us, especially considering that you don't do weddings that often!

To Nyanda in particular: We received so many compliments from our guests about the quality of service you provided and your warm , jovial presence. Thank you for being such a lovely addition to our reception; your work didn't go unnoticed.

Again, thank you all for your yummy snacks; we truly appreciate your efforts.

Best,
Tarrin & Jason




Hi Kelly,

I just wanted to write and thank you again for whipping up the platters and delivering them for my party. The party was a huge hit, in large part to your delicious food.

Everyone really loved the skewers and pizzetas in particular. The most positive comments I heard were about the prosciutto pizzetas. Thanks for recommending them.

Take care.
Gil




Kelly,

FAN-TAS-TIC! DE-LICIOUS! AWWW-SOME! WOW! Those are the compliments we got from our friends and family when they saw and experienced the lovely BBQ lunch you catered for our son's Graduation and daughter's Confirmation party on Sunday! Everyone marveled about the presentation and the quality of the food, and commented on how delicious everything tasted! We were surprised at how many people complimented your green salad with the edible flowers, and of course, everyone wanted to know the recipe of your dressing! And, you were right when you assured me that I didn't have to worry that I wouldn't have enough food for everybody. The portions were perfect, considering the fact that I have a large family with huge appetites! I even surprised my guests when I told them that I had not sampled any of the dishes beforehand, but merely went with my instinct to go with Pacific Fine Food Catering after I went to your website and saw all the beautiful pictures of past events and read all the wonderful comments of satisfied clients!

I really appreciated the fact that you made everything so easy for my husband and me - from helping with the menu, to preparing the food, to delivering everything to our home, setting up, and taking everything away the day after! My husband and I were able to relax and enjoy the day, and we owe you a ton of thanks!

I've already referred Pacific Fine Food Catering to some of our guests who may contact you for a company party or family affair. So, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Not only did you make it a special day for our son and daughter, but the entire event was enjoyed by all!

Gratefully,
Marilyn and Fred Godfrey




Girlfriend,

The food was epic! Thanks so much for everything, Jane absolutely fantastic everyone loved her. The fruit display was out of this world. Your work is amazing, just had to thank you. I’ve put your number on speed dial! You & your team are the best.

Hi Kelly,

Our open house was a great success! Thanks to you and your crew! The food was very good. The salmon, scallops and mango and the asparagus wrapped with steak were my fav!! Brian did a fantastic job yesterday. He was extremely friendly and everybody enjoyed his service last night. We were having so much fun that we did not realize it was getting so late. Since there were still people hanging around and drinking Brian agreed to pick up the wine glasses today. I appreciated that.

Enjoy your weekend!

Thank you!

Dear Kelly:
On behalf of the Berkeley High School Athletic Fund, I would like to express my sincere appreciation and heartfelt thanks for your generous donation of three beautiful and delicious gourmet salads to our Berkeley High School Athletic Fund Golf Tournament (May 7, 2010). Usually men seldom notice salad, but they were absolutely raving about yours! Never seen men dash for second helpings on salads ... you provided the perfect amount for the group.

The tournament was a success and the revenues generated will help supplement Berkeley High School’s many athletic programs. We are fortunate to have your enthusiasm and support. Strong community involvement in our public schools is a key to excellence. Your support for the athletics program adds to the overall quality of Berkeley High and marks the difference between a good and a great school.

Kelly, Thank you so much for everything! The food, the set-up, the staff, the water bar… everything went on smoothly and accordingly to the plan.
You my friend, run a very tight ship and you have it together! It was an honor to work with you and your crew!
I will most definitely be referring you to other event professionals I work with and hope, myself, to be able to hire you in the near future.
I want to also thank you for the generosity and extra care that you put into this event. I know that you went the extra mile or two to accommodate everything from our small budget to high expectations. Please know that I noticed it and the staff did as well…

Hi, Kelly.
Have heard SO many raves about the spread yesterday - they really really really LOVED what you did... biggest hits i think were goat cheese goodies, crab cakes and shrimp rumaki. but all of it was truly praised!

Wishing you, your fabulous staff, your lovely family all the happiest holiday wishes...

OMG … Our Marketing folks in for the big meeting today totally scarffed the pizzas (they are still in the conference room making "yummy" noises). There weren't even any crumbs left; very little salad and desserts … forget about it … no way was I getting between the Marketing folks and the cookies. I don't get combat pay!

Thank you for such a great job for us this week. Again, thank you and I will be calling next week with yet another order. Have a joyous Easter!

Ps - the Mint Lemonade was a HIT!! Everyone loved it!!




Dear Kelly!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for your services last week! Everything was really remarkable, and the faculty and participants were extremely pleased with the food choices, presentation and quality that you and your team provided.

I myself can't say enough about you (I'll try to get a review up on Yelp or something when I get a breather!), Tanya and Philip. I wish I could hire you all, ALL the time! I'm still salivating over that pulled pork sandwich, the fried egg salad and the pumpkin pies (I don't even LIKE pumpkin pie), not to mention those infused waters and the peach and pear jam (which I am guarding for myself). You have such a high standard, and your presentations are just beautiful!

Thanks again and I hope to see you all in the very near future (or perhaps at the Alameda Antique faire). Cynthia .

It was great meeting you yesterday. I received rave reviews on both of the lunches and the coffee service over the past two days. Kudos to you and your group for the wonderful food and excellent customer service! Looking forward to doing more business with you.
Thank you so much!

Dear Kelly,
Michael arrived at the golf course with the delicious lunches yesterday and they were snapped right up and devoured! Several people commented on the quality of the bread and creativity of the choices. Thank you very much for offering such sumptuous fare for such an economical price! It helped us to keep our costs down and maximize the fundraising benefit of our golf tournament.

I hope we get an opportunity to meet in person. Thank you, Suzette, for connecting Blind Babies Foundation with Pacific Fine Food.

Hi Kelly ~
I received your voicemail, but it has been so busy I have not had a chance to get back to you. The luncheon was fabulous, the women who delivered it was great. I handed your card out to several people, they loved the food and the display. The large cupcake was a big hit, as was the salmon. Thank you so much for a great presentation and great food.

WOW ~ last night's event was wonderful. The food was superb; Tonya, Suzette and Erin were perfection and everyone had a grand time. My youngest is thrilled, since she had a gourmet lunch packed today from the leftovers!

Seriously, my house does NOT look like I had a party last night. Bravo to your trio!

Thank you note from Nicolette & Dave - June 20, 2009 Wedding

Kelly –
My day was stress free thanks to the wonderful job Tanya and crew did at our wedding! They did a great job! The food was delicious – I can’t decide if the lasagna or the scalloped potatoes were the best part – I missed the cheese appetizers due to an outdoor photo session, my loss! Everything ram smoothly, tasted delicious, looked beautiful and everybody at Pacific Fine Food was calm, organized, efficient and friendly. I can’t imagine a better caterer. I will refer you to anyone and everyone! Your service, from the initial tasting to the last piece of cake served was spot on! Thank you for making a potentially stressful event into a wedding Dave and I could fully enjoy!

Thank you!
Nicolette

Ps – The Tri Tip was by far the best,

Hi Kelly,
The lunch was WONDERFUL and everyone loved it. That potato salad was AWESOME. I personally loved it, as well as the scones. The apple pockets were unbelieveable. I was glad to be able to make off with some stash to share with my folks. My dad is a huge apple pie, apple strudle guy. So thanks again, and I'll have another smaller order for you again in May. Tanya was GREAT and I was glad to meet with her.

You all did a WONDERFUL job. Firstly you all were a pleasure to work with and what a creative display of delicious tea fare! Ladies went nuts over the sandwiches which they said, "tea sandwiches" are usually really tiny and dry these are the Best" and the cookies passed with flying colors ! Loved that they were homemade and not those typical glazed flower cookies, the lemon and peanut ones were divine and different which was nice! So thank you again for a beautiful job. I am going to mention you in the newspaper and hopefully continued business will come your way. I will also tell Cathy Glazier, the hostess ,to use you again for next year's tea which will be at her house and seeing that you know the layout now that will make everything a breeze.

Cheers,

Kelly- you’re the Cutest Naughty Caterer! You’re amazing to bring so much to this event. I will work hard to drive business to you! Thank God there were potatoes left at the end!

Thank you so much!

Dear Kelly,

Charlie and I want to thank you, Tonya and the rest of the staff for the wonderful food, service, and support you provided for our wedding reception. Many of our guests comments on the professionalism of the staff, the delicious food, and the attractive tables. And several of them requested business cards with contact information – that’s always a good sign, isn’t it! You helped make the day a truly memorable one. Best wishes for a happy successful New Year,

Jeanne T




Dear Kelly & Pacific Fine Food -
Thank you catering our wedding. The seafood menu was absolutely amazing and the crew did a marvelous job! Also, thank you for the resource book and magazine subscription. There is a lot of cool stuff in there to help us remodel. when we're ready. Thank you also for recommending Johnnie Bamont. He was fantastic!

Best wishes,
Nate & Jo




Dear Kelly,
I just want to express my utmost gratitude for the FANTASTIC job you did in catering Jeff and Christine's wedding 2 weeks ago. Jeff was so pleased that you took on the job, as he said you usually don't do weddings. He had the utmost confidence in you and now I can see why! We (both sides of the families) received SO MANY compliments on the delicious food and friendly, professional staff. You really went out of your way to provide outstanding service all evening. I'm only sorry I didn't seek you out personally to let you know how wonderful everything was. In all the excitement of the evening, I was rather pre-occupied! Thanks again for helping to make the evening so special for all of us. (I'm sure it was as much work to service as your usual 1,000 people!) I only wish we could recommend you to everyone we know-being in San Diego wouldn't really provide many clients for you J

Take care.
Warmly,
Barb A




Hi Kelly,
I'd just like to thank you and your team for doing such a wonderful job with our wedding! From the flowers, to the bar, to the music to the great food, your impact on the wedding was above and beyond!! If you ever need a recommendation please don't hesitate to contact us!

Thanks again,
Jeff & Christina A




Hi Kelly,
We want to thank you for your services at the memorial. The food was great, presentation beautiful and your servers were friendly. The rose bush is breath taking. We will cherish the memories for years to come.

Sincerely,
Sid & Kristin N




Dear Kelly,
Thank you so much for the amazing food at our wedding reception! We received many compliments on it. My family loved the Jordan almonds - what a great idea! Everything looked beautiful + went smoothly thanks to your hard work & attention to detail!

Many thanks,
Kim & Jeff




Hi Kelley,
Well, it has been WAY too long since my birthday bash in May so please excuse my delay in writing. Even after several months, I can still conjure up the memory of the excellent Hawaiian themed spread you assembled for my guests. Everything tasted great and looked perfect. I got lots and lots of positive comments from the guests, even before they found their way into the signature drinks at St George's. I tell anyone who asks about a catering recommendation to give you a call. I certainly hope some of them do since I am confident they will end up with a top-notch, delicious and fun experience with you and your crew.

Best Regards,
Jay C




Dear Kelly,
A personal note to thank you for the great catering and presentation at our "cowboy" birthday party last Sunday. It was really fun! Your wooden stumps served as great displays to your lovely food. Everything was great. Your servers were great. Lots of folks asked for business cards - so hopefully more requests will come your way.

Thanks again!

Kelly,
I'm not sure if you know this, but Wednesday is my last day at the Port. I'm retiring (after 28 years here!). I really want you to know what a pleasure it has been working with you. Your catering is unparalled, and your personality is perfect for the job. You really found your niche! We may run into each other from time to time, but again, I want to thank you for EVERYTHING!

Cheryl




Thank you so much for providing such FANTASTIC food for our 2 day event!
Everyone LOVED the food! We were really impressed with the packagin style. And the cupcakes with pansies were a BIG hit :)

I really appreciate your flexibility with adding additional lunches at the last minute and your willingness to deliver to Fremont on the first day. That really helped us out!

Thank you!
Kristin H




Thank you again for everything. The food was fabulous and the staff was excellent. Also, thank you for recommending Johnnie. He was amazing on sax. It was truly a wonderful day.

Thank you, thank you, thank you,
Nate and Jo




I don't know how we survived without U before...... you make these tasks for me so easy...I use to dread setting these events up because the caterers had no creativity, style or presentation. It was also the same thing, nothing different. Anyway, everyone loves your food & treats :)

Kelly,

Thank you so much. The lunch was wonderful! Kudos to you and Pacific Fine Food Catering. Everything was great! A special thanks to Cheryl. She was timely, gracious and she brought us delicious food. My personal favorite was the pasta salad. It was screaming. Re: the invoice, I will call you and give you my P-card number. I look forward to doing business with you in the future.

w/gratitude,
Joan




Kelly, Kudos for the lunch. I received several compliments on the food from our guests. My staff almost never gives positive reinforcement. One person said it was the best box lunch he had ever had. He and I both had the salmon nicoise as did my boss. The birthday boy enjoyed his special lunch with ribbon and the recognition. Thank you. I will definitely use your service whenever I have an event to cater.

Dear Kelly,
First let me say how happy i was to see you this morning - it's been too long in between! Once again, your food was absolutely perfect at all four meals you served. Your unique presentation, attention to the smallest details and your dedication to serving healthy, TASTY food was truly appreciated by all. May i also say, and please share this with your staff, your staff is consistently the most professional, thoughtful and efficient i've ever seen. Some of the meeting participants made a point of letting me know how much they appreciated the nearly stealth presence of your staff as they transitioned the servings in a very tight space, amidst sensitive and intense meeting discussion. Kudos to all!

Please know that i continue to share the good news about Pacific Fine Food Catering with all my colleagues and executives here at Kaiser, letting them know that you provide the best food and service while observing our commitment to "green" meetings and delivering it all at terrifically competitive prices.

With genuine gratitude and a happy tummy,

Dear Kelly,
Thank you again for the wonderful food you provided our group during our tour of Distillery No.209. Not only was everything supremely delicious, but it all paired so well with the gin cocktails. Well done! We all greatly appreciated having you there as a most welcome part of our day of gin discovery. Thank you for bringing extra food to our band at Forbidden Island, that was a very special treat and you made some musicians very happy! I look forward to your culinary talents again soon. Please let me know when you’re next in Napa Valley as I’d be happy to show you our winery. Take care.

Kelly,
It went great. I was a little afraid of the new location and being in a hangar. We are always in a convention type setting, but other than a few bathroom complaints the students seemed fine. Thanks for working with us and all the great accommodations. Good luck to your business in 2007. May you have a fabulous year.

Hey girls!

Some of you got a chance to taste the food from today's caterer for the Regional Presidents and National Leadership Team meeting. Here is the link to their website. Her name is Kelly Kearney.

The NLT & RPG loved the choices Jayne made on today's menu and can I say, SO DID I !!!! It was a low calorie menu with all of the taste of a high calorie meal. One executive couldn't believe the nonfat yogurt was actually nonfat. And the low fat peach coffee cake was unreal!!!!!!!!

Now most of you know I don't like low fat or fat free anything, and with most of us watching what we eat these days, I can say this caterer lets you feel like you're cheating without cheating. If you like, give them a shout and let them cater your next event.

So keep keeping track of your calories and your carbs. Be fit, be healthy and keep thriving.

Hi Kelly,
Thanks again for the amazing meals! The Greek buffet was outstanding! In the evaluations at the end of the day there were a lot of participants raving about how good the food was. Also, thank you for putting so much personal effort into making a great meal, from the fresh herbs directly from your garden to the fresh baked cookies and desserts that you provided. It is always a pleasure to hire Pacific Fine Foods when we are in the Bay area.

Sincerely,

We’ve been using Pacific Fine Foods as our local caterer for almost a year now, and we love what Kelly has done. Her staff is upbeat and professional and the food is always great. I recommend her services to anyone looking to have that special event catered, and all of my clients have been very pleased with her positive attitude, and fresh approach to cuisine. I would encourage anyone that is looking to have an event catered to consider Pacific Fine Foods in Alameda as their first choice.

Hi Kelly,
I met you at the Oakland Gateway just before Christmas and I flew out of there on Wednesday night and had your chicken wrap meal and it was fabulous! Thought I’d give you this direct feedback. Keep up the good work.
