"Karen and her staff were fantastic. We had our conference opening reception at the Oakland Museum for approximately
1300 people and everything was flawless.
Tommie was on top of his game and made sure that everything was exactly where it needed to be.
Before the Party: Karen and Tommie are a great team. Working with Tommie was really easy. He took the time to explain the menu, send us the set up schematics,
worked with Anthony for our light set up, worked with the band for the band rider and coordinated with the museum regarding set up, heat, and pretty much
everything else a party needs. He was very communicative and professional. I knew that I could just come to the party and have a good time!
The decor: Karen and her team went out of their way to make sure that the decor matched our conference theme (rooted in authenticity). The flower arrangements
were beautiful, the tables and the bars were set up exactly in the right place to allow for flow of people. the food was presented beautifully. I give this an A++.
The food: The food was absolutely on point. We had several food stations and each was better than the next. Sliders, Lobster Quesadillas, Chicken and Waffles, Dim Sum,
Caharcuterrie -- one better than the next. And let me not forget the dessert: the cream puffs were heavenly! The food portions were also perfect for people to walk
around with food and chat. Everything was also very thoughtfully presented and just beautiful. Not something easy to pull off for 1300 people. We had greeters at
the entrance of the gardens with wine and that was a really nice touch that Tommie suggested! Everyone was so impressed.
Overall Karen and her team are truly fantastic. The food was amazing, the decor was beautiful, the staff was courteous, and they made party planning easy for us. I
would hire Karen Bevels in a heart beat!"
"The service that was given by Karen Bevels, Anthony Mann and the staff could not have been better. There were some changes as the event came
closer and they were able to make the changes without batting an eye. The food was excellent, service was superb and all our friends have
raved to my daughter and I about how wonderful everything was. We were both delighted with the entire event.
I am certain we will use Karen for other occasions.
I will recommend Karen Bevels Catering to everyone who wants something better than the usual catering services."
"Karen is amazing, her team is amazing, her food is scrumptious...she takes more than 5 stars. Her attention to detail is exceptional.
I cannot say enough about her and her team. There is no other caterer that I have met that you can ask for so much and it is all done with a smile.
Food Allergies-check, Gluten free-check, vegan-check, move chairs now-check, move them back-check, 50 more people just showed up-check,
give me a hug before i kill everyone here-check."
"WOW! What can I say about Karen Bevels Catering other than that they are fantastic!!! Karen and her entire team were extremely professional,
communicative, and accommodating. Karen just did our wedding at the Los Altos History Museum and did a wonderful job! The food was delicious
and fun (we had chinese dim sum and jamaican food). Everything looked beautiful and professional and we got tons of compliments!
Karen worked with me to stay within certain budgets and found ways for me to save in costs! She is extremely generous and a delight to work with!!
I would recommend Karen Bevels Custom Catering to anyone!!!"
"I am an event planner and I have worked with Karen on several occasions now and every time it has been wonderful. between her careful attention to detail, her timeliness, her flexibility and capacity to adapt to what you need, her sweet character, her great and helpful staff, her delicious food and willingness to work with you on pricing...I love working with Karen and would highly recommend her for anyone needing catering at an event.
Her staff knows how to go the extra steps to make an event look really nice as well!"
"Karen Bevels catered many fundraising events for Golden Gate University Law School, and did a terrific job in that downtown
San Francisco business setting where logistics were tough. She was so impressive there that we also had her cater gatherings
in our home and at a park site where there was nothing "on site" for her to work with but grass and a view. She and her staff
are super professional, they always show up on time and with everything they need to do the job. The food is unbelievably good,
looks impressive for guests, and is very, very reasonably priced. She'll work with you to choose a menu that's exactly what you
want, from super-fancy to deliciously "down home". Her suggestions are right on the mark, and she's just the best to work with.
Can't recommend her highly enough--we will definitely use her for every future event."
