WE LOVE JENNIE!! She and her team NAILED IT for our downtown LA wedding. Jennie and Megan are an absolute pleasure to work with. Professional, responsive and their food and cocktails are oh-so-delicious. We couldn't be happier!

We were recommended to Jennie Cooks through our fabulous planner, Renee at Moxie Bright Events.

From our initial tasting, my now-husband and I felt right at home. It felt like having dinner in someone's living room. Jennie spoke highly of creating a culture of happiness for her staff, which showed through every interaction through our event planning and during the wedding itself. Jennie instills a true sense of pride in her work. We were invited to their "Nibbles and Sips" event, which they host for event industry folks and clients. We tried a ton of appetizers and cocktails, which not only helped us make decisions for our wedding, but we got to meet some couples who had Jennie's at their wedding. This said a lot about Jennie - in addition to creating amazing food, she inspires a following!

We had a unique set up at our wedding, with multiple catering vendors. Jennie's provided the appetizers, service and bartending, while we had separate taco and pizza vendors for dinner. Jennie and Megan worked tirelessly with our planner to ensure every detail with the other vendors was up to THEIR standards - they were in charge. Each and every one of Jennie's staff were courteous and so helpful. They even planned special meals in advance for my mom and officiant, who have specific dietary needs. Execution was ON POINT, from start to finish, from each pig in a blanket to salmon canape.

We couldn't recommend Jennie Cooks more highly!

I used to be a regular at Jennie Cooks' restaurant (in Culver City years ago) and we were living out of state when we planned our wedding, so we hired Jennie Cooks to cater our wedding without having a tasting first. It was a risk, but based on my recollection of her restaurant and its food, I felt comfortable with it. My husband and I are both pretty picky about food and we had many guests with dietary restrictions, so we were nervous about how that would be received by Jennie and her team. I don't have words to describe how wonderful they all were with us. Jennie was totally unphased and positive about everything we asked of her. She crafted the menu of our dreams (above and beyond what we ever imagined it could be), and her can-do attitude and zest for life make her a total pleasure to work with. When we finally got to town and had our tasting (2 months out), we were all blown away by how delicious everything was!!

And on our actually wedding day it was more of the same. Her staff is kind, professional, and down to earth, and the food was to die for. I cannot tell you how many rave reviews we got about the it!! Hey attention to detail, and the caring and love she put into our event went well above and beyond the call of duty, we are eternally grateful to Jennie and crew for making our day so special and delicious!
