ACT Catering is back!

ACT has served the greater Bay Area since 2002, delighting our clients with attentive personal service and the finest cuisine, using only the freshest seasonal ingredients from local sustainable farms to prepare courses rivaling those in the best restaurants. After six months of shifting our focus to offering food at home, we are back to doing events with the utmost care to keep you and your guests safe from COVID-19.

New menu

The cornerstone of our return to safe event dining is our “Wrapped Attention” menu, featuring individual servings perfect for any event, morning to night. Items are individually wrapped and delivered in compostable containers along with single-use compostable flatware. And while the menu has a mouthwatering, wide array of options, we are happy to develop a custom menu for you as always — just ask!

Ingredient lists are available by request.

How to find us

Though our address is technically 1552 Beach Street, the entrance is actually off Halleck Street, just south of Park Street in Emeryville. Enter the parking lot from Halleck and drive about 50 feet in, and we'll give you your order. (Just a reminder: please order ahead at least 24 hours and select your pickup time!)
