Testimonials From Our Catering Guests

I am thrilled with the spectacular meal Jack's Bistro's Catering prepared for Girls Inc. of Carpinteria's "An Evening in Bloom!" Justen impressed from our very first catering meeting. She produced delectable options within our budget and pulled every stop to make our event a huge success. Justen served a bona fide feast during our tasting, she shared tips on affordable rental and wine sources, and even secured candles for our tables. The event itself was gorgeous, the staff was friendly and hardworking, the reception hors d'oeuvres were delightful, the meal was beautiful and delicious. Our guests raved about the food. Girls Inc. thanks Jack's for a job very well done!

Recently I had the opportunity to attend a memorial luncheon honoring a great American Comedian/Actor. The gathering was catered by Jack's Bistro & Famous Bagels Catering Department of Carpinteria. My hat's off to the director of catering Justen Alfama for an outstanding job in scheduling and presentation as planned. The food was delicious, abundant and beautifully presented. I highly recommend Jack's Bistro for any catering event and you will have the best.

Jack's Bistro's Catering is a one-stop-shop for all my business catering needs. They provide convenient and unparalleled service. No matter how big or small the group, they always work within the constraints of my company budget to provide tasty, high quality food without compromise. Most impressive is how little guidance and notice they need to put together a professional Lunch or Breakfast. I frequently send simple texts to the staff (Justen) containing only the address, number of people, and the time of delivery; upon arrival I am always greeted with an office full of smiling faces asking me "Where did you get this? It's wonderful!". Also impressive is their ability to prepare virtually any type of food I ask for, all you have to say "Italian" or "Sandwiches" etc and let them take care of the rest.

Silence! Yes, when everyone has been served and all you hear is the quiet play of palatable pleasure, you know you picked the right caterer! For years Doralee and Justen at Jacks Bistro & Famous Bagels Catering have catered the Rotary Club of Carpinteria's noon lunch. Each week we are pleasantly surprised with a delicious entree, it's accompanying vegetable, an excellent salad bar and dessert. The staff that serve are friendly, efficient and quiet! Members and guest frequently sing the praises for the excellent lunch. When you want it done right, choose Jacks! You wont be disappionted with the silence!

I love Jack's Bistro!! I order quite often and get incredible service from Justen. The food is delicious and always ready at the time I ask. I have had to add more quickly, and there is never a problem.  I love working with Justen.  She is exceptionally professional and a complete delight to work with.  If you have catering needs ... call.  You won't be disappointed.

I have done over 25 events for between 50 and 800 people with Justen Alfama and I have recommended her for numerous others.  The combination of knowing what food people enjoy, what is cost-effective for the clients and her delightful and accommodating nature is what makes her a pleasure to work with!

Thanks for the prompt delivery and delicious food you brought to us for our last customer meeting at ATK Space Systems. Our meeting was a success in large part due to your wonderful food.  We had many compliments on the food and the vegan meal was perfect for our special guest.

Jack’s Famous Bagels provided a wonderful venue for my 60th birthday. The setting was lovely. The staff was friendly and accommodating. There was plenty of room for the buffet, a disc jockey and dancing as well as a patio for those who wished to dine alfresco. Jack’s took care of everything. I had priced other places and none matched the quality or value of Jack’s. I received several calls from friends following the party; they loved the food and the ambiance. Thanks to Jack’s for making my 60th so memorable.



The Rotary Club of Carpinteria made a wise decision to contract Jack's Bistro to do our weekly luncheons, not only is the food excellent and well balanced but it has improved our attendance. Most of us do not want a heavy meal at lunch anymore and Jack's understands that, yet there is plenty to choose from and the combination of food had been very enjoyable, and the salads are great.
