Tasteful In Every Way
Working with Olivia Cooks For You was easily one of the best parts of our entire Love Party experience. Professionalism was top notch, we were never worried or stressed along the way, and the food was hands-down a major highlight for our guests. Olivia worked with us to create a menu that reflected who we were, while bringing some her own creativity and expertise along the way. Honestly, after our initial tasting, the thing we looked forward to (dare I say even more than the ceremony?!?) was eating the food. Thanks for an incredible menu and overall experience, Olivia. We were utterly satisfied.

Absolute PERFECTION!!! The food was the highest quality and mouth-watering, the presentation exquisite, the servers were 5-star-restaurant quality, and Olivia and her team were absolute pleasures to work with. Together we chose a stand-out menu that WOWed my guests. They literally couldn't stop talking about how DELICIOUS it was - they were naming each appetizer and dish in tremendous detail. So many of my guests told me they wished they had the same meal the next day! Most of my guests said it was the best wedding they ever attended, and food is one of the most critical parts! We had STUNNING, hand-passed appetizers including Salmon Tartar with Lemon and Fresh Chervil in Black Sesame Cone, Wild Mushroom and Rosemary Mini Arancini with Black Truffle Cream, Lamb Meatball in Spiced Tomato Sauce with Creamy Feta and Herb Dip, and many others, including crowd-pleasing, hand-shucked Oyster Bar. Dinner consisted of a MELT-IN-YOUR-MOUTH garlic and herb roasted Beef Tenderloin, Fresh Herb and Lemon Crusted Salmon with Chervil Cream, Wild Rice, Leek and Wild Mushroom Pilaf, and a bounty of in-season vegetable sides including Olivia's famous Creamy Yukon Gold Potato Purée.
All served family style which delighted my guests and facilitated an extra layer of bonding and love at each table.
When you start your wedding planning process, it can be overwhelming as you assess many possible vendors. BUT as soon as we met Olivia during the initial tasting, the food blew me away and we knew we had to work with her because she had the best energy & vibe, and incredible attention to detail and personal touch that really stood out among everyone else.
And that great care and attention came through in so many ways. Her execution partner, Christina, was a delight to work with during the entire planning process (which, for my venue, included managing the rentals). The entire process was effortless and the final product FAR EXCEEDED my expectations. Thank you, Olivia and Christina!!!

Great food and service!
We hired Olivia Cooks For You to cater our 175 person wedding in Brooklyn, New York in August 2018. From the beginning, Olivia and her team were so professional and helpful. Olivia was able to curate a menu that worked for us. We wanted a buffet style dinner with an hour of cocktail service (passed appetizers) and dessert. Our guests were complimenting us on how great the food and service was the entire night. We had some minor changes to the menu before the wedding and Olivia was able to accommodate them. Her team really did a fantastic job. Our particular space, which was a rented out restaurant beer garden with a big backyard was challenging in terms of seating. We had to work with the venue. The Olivia Cooks For You team (especially Christina, her sales and planning manager) went above and beyond to help us work out space needs that were related to catering. Fantastic food and great service! We would highly recommend hiring The Olivia Cooks For You team for your wedding or event!
