JCT's team did an amazing job from the first meeting right though to the end of the night on our rehearsal dinner evening! We had a large bridal party and even with Covid restrictions they were able to make this event very memorable. The food was delicious, the drinks were great and the service was excellent.Sent on 10/19/2020

We could not have has a more perfect experience than we had with JCT Kitchen.
We chose JCT Kitchen for my son's Rehearsal Dinner in late October. Angela was amazing to work with and was always available to answer our questions. She had great suggestions and advice for food and beverage choices. The service, provided by Ashley, was above and beyond. The food and the venue were absolutely perfect. I highly recommend JCT for your Rehearsal or Reception - or any event.Sent on 11/12/2020

Rehearsal Dinner Welcome Party
We hosted a wedding weekend rehearsal dinner/welcome party at JCT Kitchen. It was initially planned as a sit down dinner and party for 150 guests, but due to Covid we had to scale it back to 50 guests. I worked with the event manager Angela to ensure we still hosted a memorable event. The JCT team was exceptionally flexible and accommodating in creating a beautiful and safe event. The food was exceptional with passed and stationed JCT signature favorites, deviled eggs, ham biscuits, etc. and we were even able to have a seafood bar offering. The service was superb and Angela was extremely accommodating in working with our decor vendor. I can’t recommend JCT highly enough for any wedding event.Sent on 09/17/2020
