catering testimonials

  • "For the past eight years, I have engaged Bristol Farms' Catering as the on-course
    restaurant for the "Friends of Golf" tournament at Bel Air Country Club. The food and the presentation are absolutely spectacular. Melinda Race and her teams are second to none when it comes to a task of this magnitude. I also use Bristol Farms for all of my personal catering needs. As a realtor, I host many broker and client parties and only the best will do! What would I do without Bristol Farms?"

  • "I have worked with Melinda Race, Event and Catering Director for Bristol Farms, for the past 5 years. We use Bristol Farms to coordinate the food preparation and culinary services for our prestigious events, The Lobster Festival, held annually in Redondo Beach and The Long Beach Crawfish Festival.The food preparation and coordination for these events is difficult as it requires a high degree of experience and skill. The handling and preparation of ten thousand servings of fresh seafood is a daunting task, one that Bristol Farms adroitly performs."

What our customers are saying...

Bristol Farms offers full service, special event catering, creating menus for every occasion - from luncheons to grand parties. We prepare your food using only what's best and freshest at the market - just like you've come to expect from our stores.

  • "What I love about Bristol Farms’ Catering is they only use "Bristol Quality" ingredients and then they prepare everything from scratch… no shortcuts. The result is fabulous quality and absolutely delicious food presented beautifully. It’s as though you spent all day making everything yourself, making sure it would be just right- but of course, you didn't - and the pressure disappears! It’s just the BEST way to enjoy your own party or important gathering!"

  • "My wife and I have shopped and attended numerous Bristol Farms events over 20 years. What sets them aside from any other is their dedication to quality and stellar customer service. The stores are warm and inviting with décor that seems to tailor to the local neighborhood. The catering department, specifically Melinda Race and her team, show a personal touch “catering to your needs and making you feel that you are the only client” no matter how big or small the event. I have utilized their services for a broad range of events from my wedding reception, to my mother-in-law’s birthday, to a corporate event for my open house at Stifel Nicolaus. The presentation and taste of the food has always been spectacular and you can count on freshness. Coming from a high end business environment where professionalism, knowledge of your client and a personal touch is key I appreciate the attention to detail, stellar service, and that my expectations are always far exceeded. Most recently I attended the Pacific Symphony and once again Bristol Farms, and the team were exceptional in all areas as usual. The event itself was wonderful but the catered service was probably one of the highlights, which was the sentiment of many patrons. Every individual person felt like a VIP. Thank you!"
