“I looked at several caterers and selected Citron based on their Yelp reviews. My husband and I organized a surprise party in our backyard for our parents last week with 25 people. I had selected a bunch of finger food and everything was delicious, especially the sirloin sliders were a huge hit. On top of little pies and the cookie dough truffles dessert bites, we had the triple lemon blueberry cake and that was sublime as well. Pretty much all the food was gone by the end of the party and I had ordered for 28 guests, people left here stuffed and happy.”

Ken and his team were a delight to work with from start to finish.
“I’ll make this short and sweet. Ken and his team were a delight to work with from start to finish. I hosted a housewarming / labor day party at my apartment in Venice and they made the whole experience effortless. Their menu is quite extensive and has something for every taste imaginable. They came, set up, replenished throughout the evening and cleaned up at the end. I highly recommend this company.. and that’s coming from someone who is incredibly hard to please.”
The service is always very friendly, always on time and most importantly the food is delicious.
“We cater breakfast every morning in our office and Citron has had some of our favorite food. The service is always very friendly, always on time and most importantly the food is delicious. I feel relieved to have Citron in our regular menu.”

Citron Catering is the best investment you can make in your party.
“Our party was to boast 2 bands and over 100 guests, many of whom are well-known music industry professionals. I wanted everything to be amazing. I had been given an unlimited budget and asked to do whatever it took to put on a remarkable party.
After interviewing a number of catering companies, I decided to go with Ken at Citron. I appreciated that he was responsive to my communication requests and his felt that his follow-up was perfect. When Ken and I finally met, I began to realize just how artistic and creative he was and, working together, our ideas started to form the basis for the party.
When Ken and his staff arrived, they descended upon our kitchen like nothing I’d ever seen. There were many of them – all happy and smiling – greeting and hugging each other like they were long-time friends. From the chefs and servers, to the bartenders and runners, I thought it was so funny because ‘everyone’ was good-looking and… ‘nice!’ – no attitudes here. Then, what came next was amazing to me and, when I knew that Ken was a gem of all gems.. When the time came to begin prepping the food, it was like a ‘hush’ came over the group. Everyone took their place and began working, quietly and purposefully, with obvious respect for Ken and each other. Nothing was stressful – nothing was missed – everything was done right. We had the wonderful opportunity to meet Ken’s wife – she is beautiful and aboutely lovely! (Are these people actually from LA?)!
Ken and I worked hard on the menu to make sure we had just the right combination of food for our guests. He came with the funnest collection of tray-passed hors d’oeuvres, a variety of skewered meats/vege’s cooking on huge grills by a ‘grill-master’ chef, an enormous spread of the ‘perfect’ summer foods (actual comments from guests) and the most outstanding array of coffee and desserts. Everything was so delicious and perfectly presented.
Because the decision was made to ‘not’ serve alcohol, Ken came up with the idea to create a menu boards of ‘mock-tails’ non-alcoholic mixed drinks that we cleverly named ourselves, personalizing it for the birthday guest of honor. Such a great idea – everyone had such fun trying them all that I really don’t even think they missed the alcohol. Ken also made custom birthday cake and pie, based on family recipes of the guest of honor. He made personal size pies and sheet cake slices for each of the guests, so that the guest of honor could take take his beautifully decorated cake and pie home with him. So smart.
From the presentation to the way the staff handled the guests was utterly amazing to me. There were even few times during the entertainment part of the evening that Ken kept me on track with his flexibility and his calm demeanor. When the time came for the party of wind down, Ken and his staff seriously left our kitchen exactly as they found it.
It was truly an evening of perfection. I cannot thank Ken and his staff enough for ‘making me look sooooo good!’ I would hire you guys again without hesitation and recommend you to anyone who wanted to host an amazing evening, on any scale. You brought a quality ‘so special’ to our party that I don’t think could have been brought by any other catering company. Many, many, many heart-felt thanks to you guys! Truly the best caterers in LA! We will be all talking about the party for years to come!
My husband stated (and I agree) that Citron Catering is the best investment you can make in your party.”
