WE DON'T JUST CATER FOOD
WE CATER EXPERIENCES
“Our board always looks forward to the hospitality and professionalism at Messina’s.”
Everything was amazing. You are amazing. We couldn’t be happier with everything. You and your team went above and beyond and definitely made a wonderful impression on us and our guests. Messinas will be on our list for every visit. A huge thank you to Ralph who is just a wonderful human being and a great person to have as the face to Messinas for any offsite catering! His attitude, kindness and helpfulness was truly appreciated by me and my husband. Please tell him we say thank you.

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!!!!
As a gay couple with one of us not from New Orleans, we always felt 100% welcomed, accepted and even celebrated! Messina’s staff went above and beyond to make us feel included and had all the resources to guide us through planning a New Orleans style of wedding.
“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!”
“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 👏”
