Best wedding food EVER!

We LOVED working with Lola's - and both on our wedding day and after, so many guests have come up to us and said it's the best wedding food they ever had. My husband and I got married in Ghent NY at The Barn at Liberty Farms last week and working with Lola's was a dream. We first heard about them when touring venues in the Hudson Valley and their name came up again and again as a standard of excellence - and I remembered going to the cafe in Poughkeepsie when I was younger for their amazing peanut noodles. We knew we wanted to do food stations (e.g. a taco bar, a BBQ station, etc) and not all caterers would work with us or understood the vision (they were more comfortable with the 3 options of plated, family style, or traditional buffet) but in talking with catering director Michaela she immediately got it and riffed on the idea with us. In the end, we decided on three stations in the theme of His, Hers, and Ours to highlight some of our favorite foods individually and as a couple - His (Southern/BBQ) had delicious brisket, chicken sliders, collards etc; Hers (Hudson Valley seasonal) had an heirloom tomato nectarine salad, peanut noodles, Aleppo dusted salmon, etc. and Ours was an amazing taco bar. Lola's also worked with us to do such fun and delicious cocktail hour food - a stationary mezze table and cheese/fruit board that was instagrammed by many guests and the most fun/delicious lineup of pass hors d'oeuvres - mini cheesecakes with milkshake shooters, mini gazpacho cups, salmon tartare spoons and several others. I can't stress enough how delicious all of the food was, but even better was working with Michaela and Eddie. We did a tasting in spring 2021 and in addition to loving the food, just loved their warmth and great attitudes. Michaela is the most competent and on top of everything thought partner in the business and my fiance and I said to each other throughout the process how much we appreciated her. They also handled food restrictions SO well - I am allergic to dairy and they actually basically made everything without dairy except some of the passed apps and cheese on the side of tacos, which I don't think anyone noticed, and they made a couple of guests with severe food allergies feel so much more comfortable than they usually do when eating out. We cannot recommend Lola's highly enough - go book them for your wedding!!!

Amazing!!!

Lola鈥檚 is absolutely the best! Everyone on their team was so thoughtful and down to earth and incredibly organized. So, just for that, they were wonderful to work with. But now, THE FOOD! We got married almost a month ago now and our guests are still talking about an appetizer they ate, or the main course, or the honey-rosemary-butter (!!!) It is so rare to have good food at a wedding, but this wasn鈥檛 just good, it was amazing!! Every single dish was incredibly well composed, fresh, and delicious. Hire Lola鈥檚 for your wedding! You will be so happy you did :)

Look no further than Lola's!! INCREDIBLE

What an unbelievable experience working with Lola's! My husband and I are big foodies, and knew we wanted a fun menu with a range of options that reflected this. We're talking everything from a raw bar and tuna tartar to chicken & waffles, NY style chopped cheese, mini sausage & pepper sandwiches and an entire Japanese station with steamed bao buns and fried rice in Chinese take-out containers鈥攁nd that was JUST cocktail hour!

For our reception, we had plated dinner where guests could choose from NY Strip, Branzino, or Ricotta Gnocchi. Each dish was absolutely delicious. Our guests are STILL raving about how incredible our wedding food was, but the real highlight were the fried oreos for dessert. YES, you heard that right - FRIED OREOS!!! Our guests could not get over these and thought it was so cool that we had them passed around while they danced the night away.

As the bride, my only regret was not eating more!!

If you're looking for a unique, fresh, creative spin on food for your wedding, look no further than Lola's. Eddie and Michaela GET IT and will create a wonderful menu that will knock your socks off. HIGHLY recommend!!!
