Over the years, we have catered many cocktail parties and company events in San Diego. Catering cocktail receptions has become one of our specialties. We recommend to keep these events to 2 hours for food service with a minimum of three displayed appetizers and four passed hors d’oeuvres. Our appetizers are extremely popular because we cook them on site and serve them right away. For delivery or pickup please visit our “Delivery” menu.

A minimum order of 30 guests is required. Labor cost (chefs and wait staff) is not included in this price.
