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.

Lydia with Messina's was incredible throughout our entire planning process! She was flexible and accommodating when things got crazy with COVID regulations and quickly changing plans. The food was amazing and we received many compliments from local and out of town guests on how delicious everything was!

Quick and friendly service for pickup orders during the quarantine/lockdown! The shrimp bordelaise was divine.

Messina Catering was great to work with. Food was great, reasonable pricing, excellent onsite service and lots of options to consider. The staff helped us to make this a great event.

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.
