San Francisco & Bay Area Caterer - Testimonials - Small Thyme

From Charlotte B. (Local Catering review)

"Small Thyme Catering was excellent- your rating system is NOT high enough to explain the level of service, professionalism and friendliness that we received. Their food was beautiful, very delicious! With a very elegant setting. It was a pleasure to eat off plate ware (not plastic or paper), real spoons, forks and glassware- nice touch! Barbara and staff was excellent to work with. we will definitely use their services again. Thank you for the opportunity to 'sing their praises', Small Thyme and their staff did an excellent job!"

When my fiance and I were planning our wedding, we were mortified at not only how much catering costs strangled our budget, but also how highly most caterers thought of themselves. A chance luch by a friend of ours introduced us to Small Thyme. We followed our friend's advice and had lunch at their former cafe (RIP). We were impressed by the food. But meeting the owners Larry and Barbara sealed the deal for us. Not only were they genuinely happy to have our business, they planned, cooked and presented a wonderful wedding buffet for our guests. We especially enjoyed their flexibility with the menu to accommodate food allergies and special dietary needs (even my insane request for little individual pumpkin pies was honored!). Most caterers make you feel foolish for even thinking about suggesting such things. They even gave us up to a week before the wedding to make any last minute changes. Small Thyme's positive and supportive attitude toward event presentation took a serious weight off of our shoulders. The staff they brought in to run the show the day of our wedding was top- notch, as well. The only dissapointment we experienced on our wedding day was that we never got to sample the cheese table Small Thyme prepared for us (we were a little busy). We hear it was fantastic, and we have a picture of it to admire.

If you live in the East Bay Area and need a unique, unpretentious and talented caterer, definitely give Small Thyme a call!

I was really sorry to find out this restaurant was closed but I'm glad that they still offer their great catering. Barbara/ Small Thyme catered my wedding in October 2008 and I was so pleased with the professional job they did. The food was great. All fresh organic ingredients. She went out of her way to fulfill all of my requests. I am not your average patron, believe me. She provided a lot of attention to the setup and her staff directed our guests to the appropriate places upon arrival. All of the tables were just beautiful with elegant linens and fresh flowers. The carving station was flawless. All of the salads were beyond expectation and I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful day!!!!

I am emailing to inform you that your food was a BIG HIT with myself and my guests. The presentation of the food looked beautifully when placed on the tables. I am so happy that you responded when I was looking for a caterer. I will most definitely recommend you and your business to others. I thought that I would have food left over, but they ate everything! Everything was so excellent, I wished I would have ordered more dishes. I gave your name and number to several people. Thank you so much for your service, everything was just perfect; my 60th birthday party was a success! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

The party was great. The guests commented on how delicious the food was and everything ran very smoothly, making it very nice for me, too! Everyone had a good time. I am now enjoying the leftovers. The guest of honor did take some home, too. Also, the clean up was super and your transferring leftovers to my plates and setting up service for the remaining guests was thoughtful and helpful. Thank you very much!
