Catering Reviews

"Just recently, he catered a large function with approximately one hundred and sixty people in attendance. The function was a kickoff barbeque for the new Monterey Peninsula College Alumni Organization. It was a huge success and Henry had a lot to do with it. We heard nothing but compliments about his catering business."

– Dan Albert, Former Mayor of Monterey

"A very special thanks for making the District Attorney's Consumer Protection Committee's Networking barbecue at Laguna Seca a huge success. The food was delicious and everyone had a great time. It was nice meeting you and I look forward to visiting your restaurant in the near future.

Thank you again for making this important event a most enjoyable evening."

– Sherri Hall, Assistant to District Attorney
Dean Flippo

"Henry is not only admired for his ingenuity and work ethic in the restaurant business, but he is also recognized as a solid, reliable, trustworthy, and highly respected member of our community.

Several friends and myself have used Henry's catering service for various functions in the past and were totally pleased with his food and service. His reputation as a caterer is growing on the peninsula and I am sure his business will continue to increase and prosper in the future.

I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is seeking a caterer for a special event."

– Luke Phillips, Vice Chairman, MPC Alumni Association
