    Daughter's wedding 5/2022

    Re: My daughter's wedding 5/2022 at Deer Park Villa (Marin County)....The food was delicious! The caterer's presentation at the buffet and table settings looked gorgeous and so in tune with the DPV vibe. The staff was very friendly, helpful and professional.
    Aliki, the owner, helped calm my nerves with her sweet talk telling me everything would be OK and answering all my questions pre-wedding. Family owned business with a family feel. Definitely would recommend Kitchenina.
    I cannot say enough.
    On behalf of our family Thank You.

    Fantastic!

    In my experience, wedding food is one of the most forgettable aspects of the event. Not this wedding food!!! Our experience with Aliki, Kostas, and the whole Kitchenina team was anything but forgettable. When guests go out of their way to tell you how much they loved the food you know they mean it. The kind woman managing the floor and general flow of service was Camille, and she was absolutely brilliant. She was so kind and accommodating, even when we made a mistake on the seating chart she handled that situation with grace and efficiency. Kitchenina is so fortunate to have Camille on their team.

    Every item on the menu was superb. The biggest hits were the definitely the Verde Mac and Cheese and the Chicken Satay, but everything was just wonderful including the Tri Tip and California salad. Guests are encouraged to come up for seconds or more. At the end of the night everything they cooked for you is packaged up to take home. Sadly, the Verde Mac and Cheese was so good there were no leftovers but we see that as a a wonderful sign! As the bride and groom we had a great view of people going to receive seconds and there wasn't a plate returning to it's seat without that mac and cheese, with the exception of our Vegan guests of course. Kitchenina was so accommodating to our three Vegan guests. They were able to make Coconut Tofu Curry and all who had it absolutely raved about it. I wish Kitchenina had a restaurant so we can eat from them again.

    The Kitchenina team is so professional and helpful as they help you plan your special day. The team they send on the day of the event is on point and everything moves along as it should. Our outdoor ceremony space was also used as our dining area. The Kitchenina team set up all tables and made our ceremony space a dining hall in the blink of an eye. They really were so efficient in all aspects of the day. We could not have done it without them!
