Pearl is proud to partner with local catering companies in San Antonio that promote culinary excellence and superior customer service. Every company on the list meets the Pearl standards for quality and service. Clients must work with a caterer from the approved list below. A 10% catering fee will be added to the catering bill on all food and beverage, before tax and gratuity. Donated alcohol or alcohol provided by the Client to the caterer is not allowed.
Per Pearl policy: to avoid the risk of alcohol being pulled at your event, your caterer will purchase and serve all alcoholic beverages.
