    Amazing!!!

    Amazing! I just wish I could give them more stars! Nicole's catered my barn wedding in upstate NY and did such an amazing job. The food- from the Hazelnut Chicken Bites to the Pumpkin Ravioli to the Cannolis- was absolutely wonderful and I've received so many compliments from my guests! Just as good if not better was my experience working with the staff. Kate helped me to plan an elegant and delicious day and was really so attentive to my questions in the planning process. The day of, EVERY staff member was incredible. Because of my experience with Kate, I felt very comfortable having them set up our decorations beforehand at the venue and they did a beautiful job. Before, during, and after the ceremony they were so attentive to the needs of my husband and myself and even our parents! Great organization and service with a positive and professional attitude, we feel they went above and beyond. I can't say enough good things and would highly recommend them to family and friends!

    Food that everybody was raving about day-of and for multiple days after!

    Kayla and I are so happy to have worked with Nicole's in order to fulfill our diverse wedding food requests. We didn't want to go with a standard "Chicken, steak, or salmon" dinner, and we were delighted to be able to serve our guests foods ranging from Italian, Asian (including sushi!), Mexican, etc. In particular, we had requested dinner stations for the three aforementioned food types, and Nicole's not only provided amazing quality food for each of them, but their service in planning the meal and executing the dinner day-of was spot-on. In particular, Margaret, Melinda, and Kate were all very attentive to our needs for the day (e.g., ensuring that there would be vegetarian options for every food style). Furthermore, they took special care of me and Kayla by ensuring that, after the ceremony, we were able to try all of the hors d'oeuvres and our specialty cocktail, and during dinner they provided us multiple dinner plates without us having to worry about serving ourselves. They were incredibly attentive to us and our guests, and were extremely kind and easy to work with as well. They went above and beyond, helping us to setup all of our decorations, including a few hundred paper cranes that needed to be individually folded and placed on the dinner tables. At one point in the evening Kayla wasn't feeling the greatest and needed to sit down, and Margaret and her team immediately got Kayla some water followed by a soda to ensure that she was able to recover. They worked with us to provide suggestions for linen choices, menu items, and even how to style the cake (and ordered it, too!). All in all, we are thrilled to have worked with them and would do it again in a heartbeat. Our guests are STILL commenting to us on how much they loved the food. Don't pass up on working with them if possible, you won't regret it at all!
