California Rose takes a boutique approach to catering: they typically handle one event per day, enabling them to give you their full attention. Rose and Dov work every event and take customer service to heart—they don’t just meet with you once then send a team out.
They welcome—even encourage—clients to take part in the creation of the menu. California Rose specializes in catering unforgettable, thoughtfully composed, and beautifully presented cuisine—including suberb vegan and other specialty menus.
One of our favorite things about California Rose Catering is that they always prepare a wedding basket packed with all the food served at the wedding, soaps, candies, and a bottle of the couple’s favorite beverage. Believe us, most couples do not eat a substantial amount of food at the wedding and end up hungry later on!
California Rose Catering is owned by founder Rosa Mendicino and her son, Dov Sims, who is the chef. Rosa’s had extensive experience working for different catering companies and restaurants before creating her own company. Not only did Dov grow up cooking with his mother, he also spent nearly a decade as a chef in unique and high-end restaurants around the Bay Area.

“The food was a smash hit at our wedding, and so were the staff. They were very responsive to all our request and gave us a fabulous tasting ahead of time. It was a little private party at their kitchen.”
“They were amazing! The placement, layout and quality of the food was perfect.”
“The food was delicious and the pricing was reasonable. We asked for oranges from our yard and organic food and they were so flexible. Everything they did was unique. I would definitely use them again and would recommend them to anyone looking for a fabulous caterer.”
“We were so thrilled with their service. I would recommend them first off because they make fabulous food. Our request was for Mexican food and they went above and beyond our request. The food was so authentic and very reasonably priced.”
“They were awesome in every category. Dov was so impressive. He was friendly and answered all questions. Most importantly, he really listened to what we wanted. We had asked for a meal that had attitude and style, all with a very international influence. It was intimate and had a great spirit to it. Rose even made special homemade desserts.”
“California Rose Catering went above and beyond our expectations. They are really fun people, so easy to deal with. Some caterers can be so formulaic in the way everything has to go. Rose and Dov were so accommodating of our ideas and made it the event we hoped for!”
“We had a really fabulous experience with California Rose Catering. They are such a warm and friendly company to work with, like family. We decided on a family style meal and it really fit our vision. It was everything that we wanted and we were very happy with the experience.”
