"I would recommend Newport for any catering event, especially sports teams. Generous amount of food (very important with hungry athletes!) and very helpful and knowledgeable staff made for a successful event. It was my first time organizing such an event, you all made it a no stress experience -- all my questions answered including some I hadn't even thought of, and most of all great food and you did everything you said and more. Thank you!" -- Carol M., Edison Boys Lacrosse - May 8th, 2017

"AMAZING!!! They catered my wedding and I could not be happier with our decision to have them as our caterers. We found them because they sponsored the food at a local nonprofit event, and my husband loved it and suggested we have them do our wedding. It's been 7 months and our guests are still raving about our food. On top of that, they were organized, communicated well, and punctual. Not to mention, they are VERY affordable. I highly recommend them!" -- Jacqueline T., Rancho Santa Margarita, CA - April 28th, 2017

"Hi, thank you for EVERYTHING for last night. The gals really liked all the tasty foods. But... I have to tell you, everyone, loved the Quinoa/Kale Salad. All wanted the recipe. (I told them I didn't even have the recipe. Would love the recipe for the Sesame dressing.) Once again, thank you. It turned out to be a really fun evening. XO" -- CHOC BBQ Dinner - May 10th, 2016

"...I want to say that we could not have been any more pleased with the food and the service from the two guys you sent. The food was OUTSTANDING. We had some real connoisseurs of Prime Rib as I am one too, and we all thought the Prime Rib was the BEST EVER. Those that ate the Roast Turkey said the flavoring was excellent. All of the food was hot and delicious. Many of the men commented that they did not know that Naples had prime rib. They though you only had BBQ Ribs. I think you should get so people coming in to your restaurant seeing how pleased they were. I have a couple of your plates and a couple pieces of silverware. I will drop those off in the next day or two.

The guys you sent were as good as the food. They were pleasant, hard working and had everything ready a few minutes a head of time. I could not have asked for any better workers. I tipped them each $40 to show my appreciation for them giving up New Year's Eve.

I am sure everyone will want you to cater our New Year's Eve again next year. However I am going to market it differently. We tried to make it a "Night on the Town" with a DJ etc and it just drove up the ticket price and kept the attendance down. Next year we want to bill it as "A nice dinner party" Great food and drink. The ticket price will be lower so we should be able to get more than 100. We will have a planning meeting in a few weeks to plan it.

I will be contacting you soon for our July 4th party. We want to do almost the same menu as last year but we want it catered with the guys rather than just delivered. We should have well over 100 this year. I hope to top the 125 we did last year.

I am not easily pleased and I have to hand it to you because you are not only the best to work with but you are dependable and the quality of your product is outstanding.

I hope you had a great Holiday Season. Happy New Year!!!" -- Tom Carrington

"Heretofore, we would go to the Wood Ranch, in Cerritos, about 3 times a month, as that was about the best we could find for BBQ--that is, until last night when we tried your Newport Rib Company offerings! What a pleasant surprise!! We ordered an appetizer to share, with some drinks, to enjoy while we unhurriedly decided what my wife, daughter, son and I should order as main entrees. It took some thinking and cooperation among us, as we wanted to sample as many of the major BBQ items, as we could. I ordered the 15 oz. rib eye with fries; my daughter had the sirloin; my son the New York and my wife a rib combo to include the beef and baby backs. Oh, what a surprise. The food was superb. (The steaks were prepared just the way we ordered them--from extra rare, to rare, to medium rare. All were done to perfection!) And the ribs!! Beef ribs are known to be fatty and with not much meat on them. Not these! They contained just the right amount of fat for flavor and loads of juicy, flavorful tender meat! And the baby backs, well they, of course, were just as terrific. I wish I could stop here, as this is getting to be terribly long, but I can't... The portions...Oh, man was I pleased, here, as well! Loads of crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, well seasoned, french fries! At Wood Ranch I've had to order an extra side of fries, in addition to the regular portion served with the meal, because they were so "measured", if you know what I mean. In other words, I was given just a few (not nearly enough)--and we are not "big people or considered to be "big eaters". But "yes" we do enjoy good food! Suffice to say that, with respect to the portions, nearly as much food came home with us, to snack on, as we consumed in the restaurant!! And now about the service--specifically, our waiter "Carlos": Just as excellent as the food! Friendly, accommodating, attentive and prompt! We couldn't be happier. Please pass along to him our compliments. That's the long and the short of it, and we are the Newport Rib Company's newest, biggest fans!! You will be "seeing" a lot of us!!" -- Vince Cortese

"I ordered Newport Rib Company food for most of my career at the City of Irvine and that means at least 20 years, because I just retired after 23 years there. I used NRC for work related events and excursions. Your food travelled with us to Charger Games, Angel and Dodger games where we were always the MOST popular tailgate party, Hollywood Bowl concerts and family camping excursions (over 100 participants each) to Death Valley, San Simeon, Pt Mugu, Anza Borrego and Morro Bay (cold packs we BBQ'd, everyone thought I was a fabulous cook). We've used your food for banquets, employee recognition luncheons, holiday parties and much more. In addition, I've ordered NRC food for home parties, picnics, funerals (cheered everyone up when they realized the luncheon was BBQ!) and sometimes just a meal for my husband and me when I was too busy to cook. I can wholeheartedly report that every meal was great! When special or last minute needs arose, the whole crew (Naples, Costa Mesa, Ladera) was especially accomodating, sometimes going as far as preparing food the night before for early morning pick-up. Everytime I was assigned "food" for work related events, I received numerous calls from staff requesting Newport Rib. I'm a bit sad that I won't be regularly hauling your gigantic hot boxes around in my car anymore, but I'm very fortunate to have worked with your establishment. Outstanding customer service, consistently delicious food, huge portions and great prices make Newport Rib THE place to eat, order from or recommend to others. Thank you!!" -- Stella Hacker, Retired City of Irvine Community Services Supervisor

"On behalf of all the employees of Paramount Petroleum and the rest of our volunteers from our 3rd Annual Community Rehab Project, I would like to thank you and your staff for the delicious food you supplied for our picnic in the park. As usual the food was wonderful and plentiful. We were able to give the excess food to the neighborhood families whose homes we worked on all week and they were most appreciative." -- Paramount Petroleum, Paramount, CA

"We would like to thank you for the excellent food & service that you provided us with for our Dad's Day Tailgate at the Rose Bowl. You continue to impress us with your food and it has become a highlight of our Dad's Day celebration. Thank you very much – we hope to see you next year." -- The Brothers of Sigma Nu

"On behalf of OCB Reprographics I would like to commend you on the wonderful food you provided for our Employee Appreciation Day. Everything was on time, organized, hot and delicious. Everyone commented on this day being the best in OCB history!. In fact, several people will now become your regular customers! Your staff is well-informed, polite and a pleasure to do business with." -- OCB Reprographics, Irvine, CA

"I wanted to thank you on behalf of The Gas Co. (Redlands) for having such wonderful hosts. Your guys did an outstanding job. They were professional, accommodating and extremely helpful. Thank you Naples Rib Company." -- Southern California Gas Company

"I wanted to personally thank you for making me look so good on Friday. Your staff was awesome and they didn't miss a beat. They made our luncheon so easy and pleasant. My boss was especially impressed with Naples Rib Co. I'm still receiving feedback from the team and it is all positive!!!! I'm looking forward to working with you again." -- Boeing, Long Beach, CA

"Our Halloween BBQ was a success! My boss just came into my office and gave me the afternoon off because they were so pleased with how the event turned out. Everyone was raving about the food (especially the portions) and the way everything was set up. I'm writing to thank you for being so wonderful to work with. You delivered on everything you promised, and exceeded our expectations. I also wanted to say that your people were terrific; throughout the entire time they were here, they helped make things go smoothly – with a great attitude and a smile on their faces. Because of the excellent quality and service you provided us yesterday, Newport Rib just made 160 new customers. With confidence, I will also recommend your restaurant to my colleagues based in other companies, so that they may use your catering services for their next events. With the holidays coming up, I know that we'll certainly be calling you again. At least I know I'll be bringing my family and friends over to your restaurant – with so many great things on the menu, I can't wait to try all of them! Thank you so munch again for your excellence and integrity." -- LA Fitness Intl, Irvine, CA

"I just wanted to tell you how pleased we of the 60th Reunion Luncheon Committee were with the food, the service, and the accommodations. The food was exceptional and the extras that you took the trouble to include were outstanding . . . fifty some people, no complaints and nothing but compliments. A special Thank You to all the servers who did such an excellent job serving and keeping our glasses full to the brim. We'll be back in 2012 for our 70th!" -- Newport Harbor High School Class of 1942 Reunion Committee

"I would like to thank you on behalf of the Board and all the members and their guests for the generosity and professionalism your organization put forth to make our annual Fall Meet dinner a very enjoyable experience. All the comments I heard were very enthusiastic and I know that everyone really liked the food, especially the variety of entrees and side dishes available. The workers from Newport Rib Company were very courteous and seemed like they had a great time, which made the entire evening a rousing success. Again, thank you for everything." -- Orange County Model Engineers, Costa Mesa, CA

"Thanks for the follow up voicemail this morning. Yesterday's event went perfectly! Had a couple of rain drops but heck we can work on that next time! The food was great as usual, and everything ran smoothly. Thanks for doing such a great job. Looking forward to the next time we can use your services." -- Triconex, Irvine, CA

"Just wanted to say THANKS for all your help in making our Edison Boys Volleyball Banquet the BEST one ever! Many people were commenting on how Newport Rib Co. does the best job of catering the banquets and why would anyone choose to serve anything else! We also decided there's something about wearing a bib and eating with your fingers that makes people VERY happy! It's been a pleasure working with you on the banquets for these past 3 years." -- Edison High School, Huntington Beach, CA

"What a wonderful job Newport Rib Company did for us at our annual services award recognition event. The food was fabulous! It was a pleasure to work with you. You are so professional; it made my job much easier. I was in good hands from start to finish. I would recommend your company to anyone in a heartbeat! You exceeded my every expectation. Thank you again for helping us to put together an outstanding event." -- Public Works Departnment, City of Irvine, CA

"Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! for the wonderful catering job ya'll did for our party last Saturday.

Your attention to detail and excellent customer relations are truly appreciated. Thanks again for everything...we are true fans!" -- The Ruehls, Long Beach, CA
