REVIEWS OF Pure Joy Catering, Inc. IN California

Kevin Smith

The entire Pure Joy team was amazing! In particular, Ellen was an extraordinary partner in helping me and my husband design and execute a beautiful menu for our wedding. We had peace of mind at each step in the process (even during our big day) because Pure Joy is truly the best. Paying a little more than some other local vendors was totally worth it - the food was so fresh and delicious and they paid attention to every small detail. I would highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding or any other event when you want to deliver an extraordinary experience to your guests.

Pure Joy was such a pleasure to work with. From our initial call to the actual wedding day, every concern/question/comment we had was met with professionalism and understanding. There was one miscommunication snafu, but since we were planning our wedding in Los Olivos from Alaska, it's to be expected. Patrick, Kacie, and the rest of the staff were a dream to work with! The number one comment we keep hearing from our guests is just how amazing our food and desserts were, and we absolutely agree! Thank you for everything!

We hired Pure Joy for our small wedding - 23 people. They did a multi-course sit down dinner with passed appetizers. Food was simply delicious! So much so that we asked for a couple of the recipes :) Service was impeccable. Polite, friendly, and attentive. Patrick was great to work with from the beginning - great communication from start to finish. We had a last minute change in the venue for the ceremony due to the weather and they accommodated us willing. Very professional team. What they delivered was definitely worth what we paid. Highly recommended.

If you’re thinking about using pure joy catering don’t think just do!!!! They’re absolutely amazing. Every person that we dealt with was so accommodating. They made us feel comfortable with our choices and we’re so knowledgeable in every aspect of our wedding. The food stations and main courses were definitely some of the best food we have ever had!! Presentation was on point just as the service was. We highly recommended using Pure joy catering for your next event. Way to go guys you rock!!!


I used Pure Joy for my wedding many years ago. It was a large part of our budget, but the food was important to me, so we splurged. We had multiple people tell us it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. A friend of mine who is now getting married just contracted with Pure Joy, because 9 years later she still remembers how good the food was at our wedding. Highly recommend them!

Last week we held a groundbreaking ceremony for a brand new senior living community called GranVida in Carpinteria, CA. Pure Joy catered our event and we were very pleased with the food, the service, and the friendliness and professionalism of the team who served us. Working with Ellen in planning everything was wonderful as well, she was very responsive to every need we encountered and made sure we had every detail covered.. I would highly recommend Pure Joy for any size event, they are worth every penny.

Worked with Pure Joy on a corporate event in Santa Barbara. They were awesome to work with start to finish. Ellen made planning the event from across the country so easy, and her on-site staff was totally professional,and more importantly served delicious food! Highly recommend for any events in the region!

Bradley Bennett

We had an incredible experience working with Pure Joy for our wedding this past November. As lovers of food, we had high expectations for our caterer and Pure Joy did not disappoint. Our menu was unique and Lynette did the research to make the menu of our dreams and the team executed it with perfection. We continue to be told by our friends and family that it was hands down the best food they had ever tasted at a wedding. Beyond the food, Pure Joy handled the entire event planning process and the execution on the day of went without a hitch. We had numerous events and stations throughout the event. Each area was setup and torn down throughout the evening without the guests noticing and a great time was had by all. I'll never have to hire another wedding caterer for myself, but I'll happily recommend Pure Joy to anyone on the hunt! You won't be disappointed.

Incredible catering company !

R. Ross

Be careful when working with Pure Joy. The contracting process was far from straight forward and led us to eventually walking away from our deposit. We were simply misled and felt manipulated. We decided to go with another caterer.

Kacey House

If you want a caterer that will listen and interpret your vision, and execute it flawlessly, Pure Joy is the only company to consider. No one does scratch made and local fare better - love them!

Kristine Kirschke

I can't say enough about Pure Joy and their amazing team. Their client service is phenomenal, their food is superb, they are environmentally conscious, and their event planners are a true joy to work with, making sure all the details are tended to. I've always had a positive experience when working with their team!

Scott Topper DJ Productions

As a special event DJ I work with a lot of amazing catering companies. Lynette and her team are passionate, friendly, and caring. Their food is delicious! From Weddings to Mitzvahs to Corporate Events, their event planning team knows how to produce an amazing party!

Lynee Gonsalves

It has been a little over two months since we got married and we’re on cloud 9 living in wedding bliss. We chose Pure Joy Catering to cater our wedding and it was a fantastic experience from beginning to end. The execution was absolutely flawless, the food was fresh and delicious and they really were Pure Joy. They took the hassle out of planning by managing our rentals and insuring we had everything we needed and provided the most amazing service around. They were quick to respond to any question I had and worked with me to create my dream wedding. I highly recommend them if you want your wedding or event to go off without a hitch. There’s a reason their office walls are full of thank you notes and awards – they’re simply the best in town. And it doesn’t hurt that they cooked the best darn wedding food I’ve ever had! Literally!!! Thank you Pure Joy! Love, The Bennetts

I attended a Pure Joy wedding in Santa Barbara recently - they are awesome! The food stations were all incredible. Super creative flavor combinations with nearly all local ingredients, and everything was delicious! The shrimp skewers with (some kind of) zesty seasoning and cilantro dip - ROCKED MY WORLD. Keep it up, PJ!

Adam Vaughn

Phenomenal food and service! They really make planning your event easy.

russell repp

Wow! Every time I am lucky enough to attend a Pure Joy event it is better than the last. I understand Lynette travels the world in quest of the latest greatest intentional new recipe. She has evidently conquered it. Can't wait till the next one!

Lauren Katz

Wow! It doesn't get any better. Amazing food and professional service made our event exceptional. I will always use Pure Joy for my catering needs.

Tara Packer

I have had the pleasure of attending more than one event by Pure Joy Catering. The food, presentation and atmosphere is always top notch. They care about every aspect. Honestly the food was so amazing!!!

Charlotte Gardner Jackson

Our wedding was absolutely STUNNING thanks to the Pure Joy team. They were very attentive and listened to our every wish. The planning from start to finish was executed with professionism and Mr. Patrick Ward was very patient with us thoughout the entire process. It's AMAZING what they can do and the food was sooooo delicious!!!! A million THANKS to the entire staff. We were extremely pleased. Worth every penny.

Alicia Cocks

Pure Joy Catering was out at our venue, The White Barn Edna Valley, last weekend for an awesome and successful wedding. They were very professional and great to work with both leading up to the event and during event weekend. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, and the staff was experienced and friendly. We can't wait to have Pure Joy Catering back out at The White Barn Edna Valley!

Kendra dos Remedios

Pure Joy was a joy to work with! They really listened to what we wanted and the food was sooooo delicious. All fresh and amazing. We had the raw bar which I highly recommend and a few food stations with paella, tacos and ravioli along with amazing veggies. I got sooo many compliments on how good the food was! They were very much willing to work with us and listen to what our vision was and to make sure we got what we wanted while still working with us on the budget. They were very professional and easy to work with. I definitely recommend! Patrick did an amazing job on the night, directing a perfect event. If anything went even remotely wrong behind the scenes we had no idea - it ran perfectly. And this in spite of some unruly guests throwing spanners in the works. Patrick acted with commendable professionalism and dedication throughout. One of our friends - likely (undoubtedly...) the most pretentious foodie we know, who is currently studying culinary sciences in Italy - told us that the tacos were the best he had eaten. Our vegan guests (bless them) loved the market fresh seasonal roasted veg - seasoned to perfection. The oysters and Ponzu scallops were my husband's personal highlight - he had to be dragged away from the Raw bar to go take photos. The French guests, of which there were plenty, couldn't get enough of the ice cream cookie sandwiches.

Pure joy catered my sister's wedding and did an exceptional job. Everything looked amazing and the food was absolutely incredible. I definitely wouldn't recommend anyone else to cater your events.
