Catering


Catering to people literally means making them happy and we work hard to make you happy with our food and service.

Our catering menus are full of delicious and eclectic options, from fresh Caprese salad to plum chipotle pork tenderloin to cold poached salmon with saffron sauce. You can choose exactly what you’d like for your gathering, from casual to elegant, or we’ll help you design delightful combinations to suit your event. We offer family style, buffet, and plated service all for the same cost to give you flexible options to match the style you’re envisioning. You can also pick up catered food or have it delivered to you. Our ingredients are fresh, organic and locally sourced whenever possible and our food is delicious.

We love our community here in Sonoma County and strive to make catered food an easy option for everyone. We offer lavish spreads for fancy cocktail parties and black tie events as well as affordable catering for children’s birthday parties and family reunions. We take great pleasure in helping our clients celebrate big transitions in their lives - from baby showers, bar mitzvahs and graduation parties to weddings, anniversary parties and end of life celebrations. We are lucky to have tremendous loyalty and repeat business from so many people who started as clients and have become friends over the years.

We’ve catered hamburgers and hotdogs for corporate lawyers and filet mignon for graduating seniors, it all depends on what makes you truly happy. Unlike many catering companies, we’re very flexible and won’t try to pressure you to choose pricier options. We want everything to be just the way you want it so you can really enjoy and remember your celebration for years to come.

We’ve been catering together for more than a decade here at Sally Tomatoes and have another two decades of event catering experience before that. We’ve worked for celebrity chefs, managed catering for many different restaurants and hotels and have catered food for many, many events and parties large and small over the years. We love what we do and hope you love working with us for your events.

 

Weddings

If you need delicious food for your wedding day that fits your budget and doesn’t charge any extra fees, you’ve found it. We’ve catered more than a thousand weddings from small, intimate gatherings to large, extravagant nuptials. You choose the menu items you want from our wedding catering menu, which includes affordable prices for each menu item, to design the meal that will please you most on your special day. We don’t charge any extra fees for cake-cutting or anything else and we’ll never try to push you towards more expensive serving options because we’ve priced them all the same - no other caterer does that.

We’ve worked with many lovely wine country wedding locations in the past and can provide full service catering for your wedding at whatever special location you’ve picked. There are so many beautiful spots to choose from in the North bay area. We’ve catered weddings at Flying Cloud Farms, Gloria Ferrer Winery, Sweet Lane Gardens, Petaluma Golf and Country Club, Sova Gardens, Deturk Round Barn and many others. You can also have your wedding at our location, either indoors in our beautiful plaza room or outdoors in our courtyard or serene redwood grove. Each of our spaces can be completely outfitted with a stage, lighting, audio and a video screen if you need it.

 
 

Corporate Events

When you need to focus on work, let us handle the food. We can provide early morning breakfasts, boxed lunches to go, lunch platters for meetings or buffet dinners for working late. We have a broad variety of menu items to suit different tastes. You can stick with sandwiches or try something new, like cajun linguine or chicken creole with mango salsa. You can pick up orders of food to go or we can deliver and serve food to you, all without interrupting your workflow. We’ve catered literally thousands of corporate events over the past decade and have designed our full-service catering menu to cover every type of event. We can also host your corporate event here at the SOMO Center with an even more extensive menu of enticing options and a full bar. Whether you’re taking notes at a corporate training or kicking back to celebrate a project launch, we have delicious food that will fuel you and your colleagues up.

We frequently cater job fairs, board meetings, corporate workshops, awards dinners, company holiday parties, product launches, team building events, seminars and conferences, like the Sustainable Enterprise Conference, which we host here in our boardroom. We regularly provide food for local businesses, including Marmot, Kaiser Permanente, Sutter Health, Exchange Bank, GNC Autobody and the County of Sonoma, as well as many wineries and others. We’re proud to be the only full-service caterer for Sonoma State University.

 
 

Pickup and Delivery

If you’re entertaining and just need tasty food with no fuss, you can swing by and pick up catered food to go. We’ll make hearty breakfasts to go for your early morning marathon training group, cold boxed lunches or sandwiches, and salads for your working lunch meeting or appetizers and dessert for your garden party. We can handle both small and large orders and you can rely on us to have it ready on time. This is perfect when you need a big meal for your extended family, your colleagues or a larger group but just don’t have the bandwidth to cook and prepare it.

We can also deliver catered food to you at the exact time you and your guests are ready to eat, set it up for you and leave you to enjoy your festivities. We deliver hot food in disposable serving containers that are easy for you to clean up after the event. We can deliver gourmet dinner and dessert to you for your dinner party, BBQ ribs for your family reunion at the beach or burritos and the best homemade sweet potato chips you’ve ever had for your child’s baseball team in the park. We can deliver catered food anywhere in Marin, Napa or Sonoma counties.

 
 

On Site

We have both indoor and outdoor spaces on site that are perfect for hosting catered events. Our plaza room seats 400 and looks out over our outdoor courtyard. Our boardroom seats 100 and is perfect for business functions, conferences, awards dinners and more. Our restaurant space is available on weekends, seats 140 and is perfect for live entertainment, parties, and celebrations. We have a full bar on site. Outdoor events and celebrations can be catered in the shade of our redwood grove, which fits 700 people, or in our enormous courtyard, with enough room for 3,000 people.

We’ve had family reunions, charity fundraisers, corporate trainings, music concerts and every other type of event you can imagine here in the 12 years we’ve been part of the SOMO village. It’s not unusual to see bouncy castles and carnival games here for a birthday celebration or ice carving and photo booths for a big wedding or corporate fun day. Hosting your event here means the food is all taken care of, all you need to do is choose the most enticing items off our extensive on-site catering menu. We take care of everything else, including setup and clean up, tables, linens, plates, glassware, silverware, alcohol and serving all this delicious food to your guests while you mingle and enjoy yourself.

 
 

Special Event

We really enjoy taking a special event from planning to reality and have a long list of relationships with DJs, cake makers, costume rentals and other vendors we can share with you. We also love theme parties and have lots of ideas and stories about past special events to inspire you. We’ve hosted, helped plan and catered everything from elegant New Year’s Eve galas to life celebrations and funerals to kid’s themed birthday parties.

We love taking the burden of food and drinks off of your shoulders so you can relax, socialize and have fun at your special event. We can host your special event here or bring catered food to you anywhere in Marin, Napa or Sonoma counties. We’ve catered just about every type of special event there is and have seen how valuable it is for a host to be able to trust and rely on their caterer to take care of everything. Coordinating a lot of logistics during the party definitely takes away from your experience and we don’t want you to feel stressed or miss out on your celebration of important milestones or transitions in life. Our fulfillment in our work comes from knowing we helped lift that burden from your shoulders so you can dance at your daughter’s wedding, celebrate a new baby, mourn a family member’s passing or otherwise make memories with your friends and family.

 
 

BBQ

When you’re organizing a big event and just want someone else to take charge of the BBQ grill and make sure everyone gets fed, this is the perfect option for you. We’ll bring our biggest grill, our special sauce and all the delicious BBQ meats and sides your guests can eat. Everyone loves BBQ.

We’ll arrive at your location, set up our BBQ and start serving food hot off the grill to whoever is hungry first. All you need to do is choose the menu items. We can grill Tuscan grilled chicken, pulled pork BBQ, tri-tip, baby back ribs and more, all with flavorful, smokey BBQ sauce. We’ll set up a double-sided buffet and provide disposable plates and utensils for sides like corn on the cob, baked beans, grilled flatbread with olive pesto, greek pasta salad, watermelon slices and hot dogs for the kids. We’ll clean up after everyone eats and leave everything just like we found it while you can stay focused on the other activities you have planned and know the food is all taken care of.

 
 

Fundraiser

We love our community and support our local nonprofits whenever and however we can. We know how tough it can be to pay for hosting a big event to raise money and still come out ahead at the end of the day, so we host 501c3 nonprofit fundraisers on Monday and Tuesday evenings. We provide the food and drink at a discount and you arrange the rest of the event, bring in some entertainment, sell full price tickets and go home with some much needed cash. We’ll gladly donate half of the bar sales to your cause. Please get in touch with us and let’s talk more about how we can help you. And thank you for all that you do to make our community a better place for everyone!
