From start to finish Paella Time was such a pleasure to work with. I was totally overwhelmed with the many things that needed to be done for our wedding. Our venue didn't provide tables, chairs, plates, glasses, or staff, and Paella Time stepped in and took care of everything. Whew! What a STRESS RELIEVER. At first I thought this was too good to be true. I had contacted a couple other caterers first (what a mistake, and waste of time, but who knew?) who basically told me that they would provide they food and some staff, but I had to figure everything else out on my own. One email to Ralph (Paella Time owner), and problems solved. He came over to OUR HOME for a complimentary tasting. LOVED all the tapas & paella. Really enjoyed the sangria. No other caterer offered to drive out to our home. We realized right away that Ralph is all about providing great service. The day of was fabulous. Their giant paella pans were set up nearby for the guests to see. We received great feedback from our guests. We even had a minute before dinner to jump in and act like we were cooking, and take a few action shots. Sooo much fun. Thank you Paella Time for creating a truly wonderful and memorable wedding day experience. Could not have been an easier.

Paella Time catered my Birthday Party this past April 21, 2018. Everything was wonderful - the food, the service, the Chef! Words are really not adequate to describe how please we were with Paella Time. Just an unbelievable culinary/paella experience for all attendees. We had so much fun. Thanks again!!

So my fiancé looked at me and said, "how about paella?", and I thought it was a great idea. So festive and fun, and different. Enter Paella Time. We contacted several paella catering companies, and by far Paella Time is the most inclusive option out there. The owner, Ralph, who is a peach to work with, took care of everything we need - all the plates, linens, glassware, linens, set up, break down, you name it. The tapas and paella was spectacular. We have family from Spain that loved it. Couldn't have asked for a more easy, delicious, and fun catering experience. Thank you for everything.

Paella Time is AMAZING. So easy to work with. Ralph is awesome. Prompt responses to emails, full of good ideas, and great service all around. My fiance and I wanted something fun and different, but also delicious food to really celebrate the occasion. Everything was SPECTACULAR. My family and friends still talk about it. Ralph took care of just about everything for us. On our wedding day his team came in set everything up, including the ceremony, had drinks and tapas ready to go after the ceremony, and then provided an amazing dinner starting with a to-die-for beet salad, followed by patatas bravas served family style, and then 3 paellas: mixed, all-meat, and vegan - all amazing, finishing the night with homemade churros drizzled with chocolate sauce. I'm lucky I still fit my dress at the end of the night :-)
So, so worth it. Thank you so much for everything.

PAELLA TIME IS THE BEST! They do it all. We had a backyard wedding at my parents' house, and needed someone who could come in, and basically do it all. Paella Time took care of just about everything: tables, chairs, linens, plates, glasses, staff. From the first contact the owner, Ralph, was super easy to work with, and impressed us with his attention to detail. It was so cool & fun for him to personally come over to our home for a private tasting. On our big day Chef Gerry and team showed up, and handled everything as planned. Ralph's staff was professional and friendly. They set everything up (including our ceremony), and at the end of the night cleared everything away as if a wedding for 200 never happened. My parents couldn't have been happier. TOTALLY recommend Paella Time for a wedding or any occasion. Thank you so much for everything.
