Raving Food Fan Reviews 40th Class Reunion Catered By Sausalido “Nick......The food was AWESOME!!! MARYBETH was the best.......please let her know how much we appreciated her help....she did an AWESOME job! And yes...... Bill Cowher did come...... like old times being with his high school buddies! Thank you again!!!" 4th of July Picnic Catered By Sausalido “We loved the idea of Mussels on the shrimp platter. The Romano chicken really holds over well, it was just as good room temperature as it was hot. Great idea for a Picnic! Pittsburgh’s finest classic Macaroni Salad, the fresh egg’s diced are the trick!” Rehearsal Dinner Catered By Sausalido “Nick, I want to thank you for the wonderful rehearsal dinner you provided to us June 26th. Kylie did a great job serving the food and all of our guests were more than pleased. I was impressed with Sausalido the evening we ate at your restaurant and was not disappointed with our rehearsal dinner. Thank you for working so well with me in making all the necessary arrangements. Continued success, Nick!!” Father’s Day Dinner at Residence Catered By Sausalido “Nick… The food was excellent. Everybody loved it. We will certainly use you again when we have another party. The price was extremely reasonable to!” Corporate Function Catered By Sausalido “Nick… Everything was fantastic.

He was so excited because he was going through Sausalido withdrawal!! Everyone loved it. Everything was so delicious. And my new hygienist may call you to cater a graduation party after she tasted everything. Thank you again!” Wedding Catered By Sausalido “I don't even know if I have the words to describe how awesome-sauce my Sausalido catering experience was for our wedding, but I'll give it a try! Every step of the process, from tasting to day-of, Nick was professional, friendly, and no-nonsense. We told him upfront what we wanted to spend, and he gave us amazing food and service at an even MORE amazing price. He also didn't try to nickel and dime us like so many vendors involved in the wedding industry try to do. Nick let us know immediately of different price options (for example, how much more colored linens are compared to black) and even gave very helpful suggestions on what we didn't need to spend money on (buying our pop rather than have a caterer provide it at an inflated price). Because our venue did not have a kitchen, all the food was made at the restaurant and brought over. I worried about food drying out, getting cold, etc. - all for naught, as all the food was the perfect temperature and moist. Much care was taken with the display of food, including mirrors and flowers to accentuate and complement what was to be served. I give Nick and Sausalido my highest recommendation, and I know I will select Sausalido again for any future catering need”.
