"All of our guests kept complimenting us..."
We had used several caterers in the past for school and work related events, but after contacting and tasting several more caterers for our wedding reception, Sima was clearly the caterer we wanted for our wedding!
When we first met Sima to discuss our catering plans, we were amazed at the level of knowledge, professionalism, and experience Sima was able to offer. Our wedding reception was planned for the Coronado Community Center, and during our first meeting with Sima, she was able to tell us the placement of tables, serving stations, bars, belly bars, and the dance floor size that would best accommodate our guest list of 300 people. When discussing the dishes that we would like, Sima was also able to make recommendations to us based on our diverse tastes (wife likes seafood and veggies, I like meat and potatoes) and helped us decide on an initial menu for our wedding reception.
A few days later, Sima invited us to an event she was catering, and after tasting the food she had prepared, we knew we had found our caterer! The food Sima and her staff had prepared for the event did not resemble or taste like a “catered” food, but tasted as we were eating a special home cooked meal for several hundred people. Luckily, Sima was still available for our wedding, so we made plans to finalize a menu for our wedding.
Fortunately, not only was Sima our caterer, but she also ended up being our wedding coordinator as well. Sima was always responsive within minutes to our ever changing menu and reception ideas. Everything from helping us finalize arrangements with videographers, photographers, performers, florists, decorators, event staff, bar tenders, servers, and the City of Coronado went as smooth as possible. It felt like Sima was a part of our family and not just someone who we had entered into a “contract” with. Sima even pulled a few strings to get us a special performer who is booked at least a year in advance. Sima made sure our reception was a success from start to finish!
During the reception, the food Sima and her staff prepared was the same level of quality we had sampled months earlier. All of the menu items were fresh, mouth-watering, and cooked to perfection – and this was an all you can eat event for 300 people! Amazing! I don’t know how Sima did it, but I’m glad she did! All of our guests kept complimenting us on how delicious our food was and how wonderful our reception was throughout the night!
Sima will definitely be our first choice for our future catering and planning needs!

"The most precious part of the evening was Sima..."
Sima created a magical evening for us. Our Mediterranean Extravaganza, was one our friends continue to thank us for, and comment on today, weeks later. The food, the table decor, the atmosphere, were coordinated to the tiniest detail. The menu and the food, from appetizers to dessert, still makes my mouth water, it was absolutely delicious. The most precious part of the evening was Sima. Her desire to please goes beyond that of any caterer I have ever used. She was a delight to work with, and I thank her from the bottom of my heart for making our evening such a treasured memory.

"Of all of the caterer’s I have used in the past, Sima is the one I would return to for my next occasion...”
“Sima’s Gourmet Catering did a fantastic job with the food for both the luncheon and dinner for my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah. The food was plentiful, piping hot, deliciously authentic and the presentation was spot on! She was as professional as they come, paid attention to every detail, and truly cared about making my daughter’s special day one to remember. Her positive attitude and smile throughout the day was very reassuring and helped me relax and enjoy the celebration. Of all of the caterer’s I have used in the past, Sima is the one I would return to for my next occasion.”

"We have never had such a pleasant experience..."
Thank you so much for catering the brunch at our home. From the beginning of the process to the event itself, we have never had such a pleasant experience. Your advice about the menu and set up both indoors and out was invaluable. And the day itself unfolded wonderfully. The buffet table was beautiful, the food excellent, and the service extraordinary—as many of our guests commented. Many thanks to you and your sons for making that day so wonderful.
