  • Carino's Catering Testimonials

    You catered our son's high school graduation party of 300-plus people last spring. We couldn't have been more pleased with the service from beginning to end, including the planning, preparation and service. The food was fabulous and enjoyed by all! The Carino’s staff was extremely friendly, efficient, professional and accommodating. I would highly recommend them for any event, large or small.

    We would like to thank Carino’s for making our event in Sioux Falls seamless and memorable. I have since arrived home from our travels and would like to express our thanks and gratitude from 21 people for a fabulous dinner catered by Carino’s. The response time during the planning stages, the delivery of the food and the professionalism displayed really made this event a success. Organizing anything for 21 people is not always easy, but they loved the food and we had plenty of leftovers the next day. We would strongly recommend your restaurant to friends and family and will definitely visit again.

     

    Thank you once again and we look forward to planning another event with you in the future.

     

    Sincerely,

    Tanya N.

    This past May Carino's catered my daughter's high school graduation open house. It was a huge relief not having to worry about preparing food at home! The Carino’s team arrived and set up the serving table and filled the warmers with the delicious dishes we had chosen. We also chose to have the salad and bread service, and I’m so glad we did! They did a great job timing the delivery of the remaining dishes. We do not live in city limits and when the remaining dishes arrived, approximately 90 minutes after the open house started, they too were piping hot. It was as if Carino's was in my kitchen!

     

    My daughter was happy and we received many compliments on the food. I have two more daughters to graduate and I will definitely have Carino's cater their events as well. Thank you Carino's!

    Our catering event with Carino’s surpassed our every expectation! They went above and beyond to make our son and daughter-in-law’s wedding rehearsal dinner a wonderful evening. I was so pleased when I arrived at the room we were holding the dinner in to find that they didn’t just drop off the food and take off, the buffet table was beautifully decorated! We received rave reviews about the food from everyone attending. Arranging the event was so easy to do. They take care of everything and totally put your mind at ease! I would recommend Carino’s catering services to anyone… they’re the greatest!

     

    We couldn’t have asked for more from Carino’s!!! Thanks for everything!!!!

    It was AMAZING, PERFECT! The staff was MORE than accommodating. Helping us set up tables and putting covering on the doors. The food was served professionally, on time, and was DELICIOUS! We had many compliments. The two staff that were with us all night did a great job keeping everyone tickets straight, with prompt courteous service. Thank you again for all your hard work.
