    The Best Catering & Event Production Company I have ever worked with!

    Kaycie and the entire team at Critic's Choice absolutely exceeded our expectations from the moment we contacted them, through the planning process and execution of our perfect evening. Hiring them was one of the best decisions that we made in this process!
    The food was absolutely delicious, and they offer us the ability to customize our menu in order to perfectly match both of our cultural influences. Our guests are still raving about the food! Moreover, Kaycie is an absolute professional! She is organized and experienced. With Kaycie, there are no obstacles--only opportunities to enhance the evening for your guests.
    As a bride with a background in hospitality and special events, I had very high bar for the quality of service we wanted to provide our guests. From the get go, I felt 100% confident that Critic's Choice understood and was capable of executing our vision. So many of our guests have shared how impressed they were with the service, a few even sharing that the servers introduced themselves personally to each table and ensured then that they would be taking care of the table for the evening. The Kaycie and the entire Critic's Choice team exceeded my expectations and just knocked it out of the park! I can't say enough about how lucky we were to have found them.

    Critic's Choice Catering and Event Production Inc.'s reply:

    Thank you so much Grace for the amazing review - we are so happy to have been part of your special day - the oyster bar was such a hit and definitely something we don't see at most events. We wish you and Michael all the best for your future and if we can ever help you again, please let us know.

    Critics Choice Catering & Event Production services for my Wedding Day on 8/18/18 were amazing! Kaycie Fellows was my Wedding Coordinator for the whole day, but she did way more than just that one day- she has been there for me since January of this year meeting with me, going over details, creating our timeline, checking in with me, being the POC for ALL my vendors, coming with me to tastings, creating a menu for us, and more! She really is a hands on professional executor when it comes to events! I really felt at ease knowing Kaycie was there for me, she was always available for me and her expertise in events is super impressive. She was asking all these questions to my venue that I didn't even think about myself for my own wedding- it was awesome. We had so many different things happening for my Wedding ( In-N-Out truck, classic car, photobus, lots of DIY elements and decor,) every detail was executed perfectly. I had Critics Choice cater lunch for the groom and I in separate suites, and Kaycie delivered everything with impecable timing and even went out of her way to pick up some last minute items from my hotel room that we needed for the Wedding. I highly recommend hiring Critics Choice Catering and Kaycie for all your event production needs!

    We worked with Critic’s Choice Catering for our wedding this month and we can not say enough amazing things about Kaycie and the staff who worked on our wedding! From day one Kaycie’s energy, passion and love for her career made her shine! We knew instantly that she would be the perfect fit for our wedding day! She helped us find the perfect menu, decorations, rental items, cake and even was our day if coordinator. Kaycie was absolutely PERFECT! Kaycie kept our wedding day running smoothly, and the day was a dream come true! Our wedding was exactly what we had pictured thanks to Kaycie and Critics Choice! Kaycie even arranged for a surprise exit with sparklers which was so gorgeous! Thank you for all you have done for us and helping make our dreams come true! ❤️
