REVIEWS

"Messina’s has catered and helped our family host a couple different events at our home. Their entire staff always goes above and beyond, making sure every hospitality detail is covered. Lauren Langenstein does an incredible job managing and executing our vision for each party, helping put together the menu, additional set-ups, decor etc and is always a phone call or email away. She makes hosting any event, easy and fun! Messina’s truly feels like family and I couldn’t recommend their entire staff more for your next event or party"

"Wow!!! Once again, Messina's created the perfect cuisine for our very special party! You know that it's great food and relationships when guests don't even have to guess who catered the event! They already know our favorite people to call. From Lauren and Anna helping to create the menu to Chef Matthew (what a great surprise!) and Assistant delivering the food, we can't thank you enough for yet another wonderful experience. Stacey, your team just keeps getting better and better!"

"I literally talked to 10+ caterers in NO to cater our wedding before I found Messina’s. All I can say is WOW! The food - DELICIOUS! Lauren - AMAZING! The staff was courteous, professional & simply wonderful! Most of our family & friends were coming from out of town & I wanted a true taste of New Orleans. I could not have expected better!!! Their service was flawless and easy to work with. They had not worked with our venue before but they arranged everything impeccably! Thank you Lauren & Messina’s for making our special day just a little more perfect!"

"Messina’s did a fabulous breakfast brunch for my granddaughter’s Bat Mitzvah brunch. The waffles, fried chicken and homemade biscuits were so delicious. The salmon tray was also amazing. The staff is top- notch. I would highly recommend this New Orleans gem of A caterer. Thanks Anna for all your hard work and wonderful suggestions!"

"Stacey - I want to thank you so much for last night. The dinner was superb. My tenderloin was delicious and the event space sparkled with the sunset. The flowers on the table were magnificent. Please thank George as well. Bravo 👏"

"Messina’s is always amazing—it’s the reason that you’re my first catering choice for our NOBIC events, and my number one recommendation. With that said, some shoutouts are in order regarding last night’s event. The food is always so, so good but last night—it was truly outstanding! People kept commenting on how much they enjoyed it. We had a really good turnout, but I believe the food ran out because people were going back for seconds and thirds! Chef outdid himself! The crew, Jeff and our bartender, were fantastic. They were on top of everything and anticipated needs—the two of them rocked; I so appreciate my Messina crew. Lauren, as always, is an amazing help and soundboard—I am so glad that I listened to her and added more food. I really wanted to take the time to let you know how amazing your team is—they deserve this shoutout."

"While in New Orleans for back to back company events, over a 7-day timespan, I had the pleasure of working with Messina’s Catering 3 different times at 3 very different venues. Each event was executed with the same professionalism and helpfulness. As if that wasn’t enough to rave about, they also were a lifesaving backup when another caterer couldn’t work around our service parameters and then again when a former venue double booked us…I can’t seem to adequately put into words the great job that Messina’s Catering did for all three of these events. Many caterers struggle to come up with two totally different menus, never mind having three! Each menu was designed so that my group never got tired of eating the same thing…Thank you all for making my job easier." (review abbreviated for space)

"When my daughter and son-in-law decided on NOLA as the wedding destination, we count our lucky stars that we went to see The Rooftop on Basin! It may be one of the most underrated venues in New Orleans! From the moment I corresponded with Lydia Casler (of Messina's Catering & Events) to the day of the wedding last Saturday with Nathan DeWeese in charge, The Rooftop on Basin has been top notch! So glad we made the call to use them as our venue!"

"This was the third time that we used Messina's Catering for a family wedding. On Dec. 4/2021, my daughter's wedding was at a new venue in Slidell (Garret Field). First, Lauren helped us choose the perfect menu as well as advised us on many questions that we had. Then, Andrew Messina came out earlier in the week to check placement of all of their equipment because we were one of the first weddings at this venue. The day of was nothing less than spectacular. Their big trucks drove up with Andrew at the helm as well as tons of staff and they went to work to make my daughter's wedding an event to remember. The food was the best. I only thought that they "blew it out of the park" for my other events with them. If I could give them 100 stars for this event, I would. My sincerest appreciation goes out to the Messina Family and their staff. You made my daughter's day unbelievably special. And, We will be back!!!!"
