  • We had First & Oak cater an outdoor birthday party in Los Olivos. From the beginning of planning through to the party itself, I know I was in good hands. We had an opportunity to visit their Brink and Mortar location to taste the food options and wine choices. This helped us decide on the final menu. During the actual event, with about 40 people, all the F&O folks made us feel really special. Gotta be one of the best parties we've ever thrown. Band, Passed App's, Sit-down dinner, dancing - All fabulous. Food was of the highest caliber. Highly recommend!
