    No need to look any further for catering!!

    My now husband and I absolutely loved Kitchenina! W got married at the Winchester mansion and they were on their preferred vendors list. They're a family business and they truly care about the food they put on your table. We were able to try the food at a private tasting (just my husband and me - there is a fee associated with the tasting) where we could decide if we wanted to make any changes to anything or tweak anything. After trying the food we quickly found out that it was absolutely perfect! The ingredients are so fresh and everything tasted amazing. They were able to deliver the food to our house in the evening as well (we had it catered to us at 6:30pm which was great!) Due to COVID we just had the food delivered and we served ourselves but they do offer services where one of their workers can help serve the food. All of my guests loved the food - not one complaint! When Aliki (one of the owners) asked if I would be willing to write a review I was more than happy to! You seriously don't have to look any further for a catering service!!

    Incredible service, amazing food, great value

    My husband and I hired Kitchenina to cater our June 2021 wedding. Wedding planning in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic meant that our plans had to be much more flexible than I imagine the average wedding plan is, but Aliki and Kostas from Kitchenina were incredibly supportive throughout the whole process, helping us figure out the safest way to still celebrate this special day. We ended up catering a buffet for approximately 40 guests with COVID protocols such as masks and a plexiglass food shield for everyone's safety.

    I really can't recommend Kitchenina highly enough. First of all, from the moment I first called with Aliki, I felt she really understood the specialness of the wedding day for us as a couple, and put me at ease with the way she clearly wanted us to get the best value and have the best experience with our wedding catering. Planning a wedding for the first time can be nerve-wracking, especially because you want everything to turn out perfectly, but after that first call I felt confident we were in good hands with Kitchenina! We chose our favorite dishes from Kitchenina's extensive menu for our tasting and then for the wedding, and were amazed by how delicious they were! I especially enjoyed the tender, flavorful miso ginger salmon entree. Having done a lot of research into local catering options, I am confident that the value we got in terms of Kitchenina's delicious food and incredible service was the best in the area for the price. We also rented our silverware & china from Kitchenina and were very satisfied with the experience.

    On the day of the wedding, Kitchenina couldn't have been more helpful. The catering set-up and tear-down were both seamless, the food was amazing, and the service was incredible. I especially appreciated the fact that Kostas personally made sure my husband and I were brought food and appetizers directly to our table so that we didn't have to worry about anything except enjoying time with our loved ones!

    All in all, if you're thinking about hiring Kitchenina to cater your event, you won't regret it. They are amazing at what they do and will make your life so much easier (and more delicious!) Thank you, Aliki and Kostas!
