Incredible team and incredible food
We cannot begin to express our gratitude for Jeff and John. Let me start by saying that the food they cooked and served was outstanding. Their team was on point and their work helped to make our day spectacular. On a more personal level, working with John and Jeff throughout the 9 months leading up to the wedding was such a pleasure. From our first communications, they were incredibly responsive to our vision and willing to work with us to make it happen. For example, I explained that my family and I are gluten free and so was hoping to have gluten free options. Instead of suggesting that we just “avoid the bread” (as so many other caterers had done), they offered to do the entire menu gluten free. At the tasting, they let us sample everything on the menu and we were blown away. It was absolutely delicious. We spent months afterwards talking about it. They worked with us to stay within our budget and helped us to cut costs where we could. In addition to the spectacular food, though they had never worked at our venue before, they were willing to go out of their way to make sure that they were familiar with everything for the day of. They met us at the venue and did a walk through with us. They never approached us with a problem without also having a solution. There was so much that was stressful about our day and the planning leading up to it, but John and Jeff were so helpful in lessening that. We are both so incredibly happy that we decided to go with John and Jeff for our day and could not recommend them more highly.Sent on 10/25/2019

Above and beyond - One of the best decisions for our wedding
My now husband and I got married last month in Upstate and from months before the wedding even til now, we cannot thank Jeff and John of Loshinsky Catering enough for making our wedding day so, so special. By profession they are caterers but by nature they and their staff are caring, honest, artistic and extremely dedicated people. We knew we had to choose them from the beginning because of their attention to detail and our shared values of sustainability and locally-sourced materials. We all hit it off immediately at the tasting in their kitchen in Hudson, NY. They were able to design a Chinese-inspired cocktail hour with passed hors d'oeuvres like Cantonese creamy corn chowder, handmade scallion pancakes, and roast pork buns and duck dumplings. This was followed by an American plated dinner using locally sourced ingredients from NY state like poussin and vegetables from farms in the area. For dessert they even managed to bring ginger vanilla ice cream from a local creamery--our guests loved this touch. Not to mention they're cocktail savants! They custom designed 2 signature cocktails based off our taste in liquors, one involving homemade sorbet. The food blew us all away, but even beyond that John the logistical captain behind it all helped us with a lot of behind the scenes tasks like a special Chinese rice liquor toast, doing the table settings per my designs, and accommodated a number of our last-minute changes to the bar menu. They anticipated us being very hungry after 2 hours of picture taking so brought me and my husband a tray of hors d'oeuvres before we made our entrance to the reception--this saved the day and we got to actually enjoy some of the cocktail hour foods! They were responsive to all emails and always happy to make phone calls with us and our coordinator when needed. We could not be more thrilled that we had them on our wedding team and helped make our day so memorable. We could not recommend Loshinsky catering enough. Thank you so very much, Jeff and John!Sent on 10/02/2019

Couldn’t have asked for more!
From the moment we met John and Chef Jeff, we knew we had to have them be a part of our wedding. Working with them was such a pleasure and they brought creativity and great energy to the entire process. The food at our wedding was outstanding (lamb! S’mores! Empanadas!) as well as the service. We would recommend the Loshinsky’s to anyone! We honestly will miss working with them :)Sent on 08/15/2019
We hear great things from mutual clients, always very respectful of equipment, venues.
Wonderful Caterer to work with, they have worked many events with us, and know our space intimately. Great food and superb service. Looking forwrad to working many more together!
It's a delight to work with Jeff Loshinsky catering. They are pros who know the ins and outs of working in non-traditional venues like The Tin Ballroom. Every event is seamless, enjoyable and always focussed on the client. We highly recommend them for all manner of events, large and small.
