Rave Reviews!

Culinaria did a phenomenal job listening to our wants/needs to provide the most delicious food for our wedding. The service was beyond professional. Guests that attended our wedding still talk about the quality of food and service to this day!! I can’t recommend them enough.

We used Culinaria for our wedding at the Cider Gallery in Lawrence in November. We were very happy with our entire experience, from a no-pressure tasting, to picking the food options we wanted (and substituting in some custom items we wanted to include), actual delivery and presentation, and most importantly taste.

The initial quote came in over our budget, but Culinaria worked with us to make adjustments that allowed us to stay in budget, while making very minor concessions. We chose to do family style serving, and things ran very smoothly. The food looks great aesthetically, and tasted great too. We got our own plated dinner at the head table, and our server who made sure our champagne was always filled the entirety of the night.

We came up with several custom dessert ideas in place of a cake, like miniature donuts, mini cupcakes, mini cheese cake, etc... and Regan's team made them a reality. They went really fast.

Overall, we have nothing but positive things to say about catering Culinaria did for our wedding and would certainly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding. I can't imagine getting more bang for your buck in terms of really high quality food at a reasonable cost.

Regan and Aaron were so great to work with. They really took the stress and BS out of hiring a caterer. Regan went out of her way to help us with the little details, like coordinating tables/linens/dinnerware rentals with another vendor. And the food!!! My parents wanted a fancy cut of roast beef for our wedding, which made me a bit nervous because it's so difficult to prepare beef to the right doneness for a crowd AND keep it hot for a buffet line. I don't know how Aaron did it, but it turned out perfectly. Our guests raved about how good the food was, and how often do you hear that about a wedding? Don't hesitate to hire Culinaria - your guests (and wallet and sanity) will thank you!
