"We went with Cocina fusion for our recent winter wedding and are so glad we did. Carolina and Juliana are amazing! Not only is the food amazing (I had guests rave about it afterwards...get the empanadas!), but they make you feel like your wedding/event is the most important one with the attentiveness and responsiveness you get throughout the entire wedding planning period. They are there for walk throughs. Always early and never late. Love that they have their own linen and tableware. They provide buffet, family style, and plated options. Their whole crew is extremely efficient in the set up and tear down. They were also very accommodating and flexible by helping us set up our dessert trays and favors. Big big thumbs up!" - Judy H.
