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.Sent on 09/23/2018
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!!!

Amazing food, phenomenal service, accommodated all our requests
We loved working with Olivia and her team, especially Christina who helped us plan and orchestrate all the details of the day. We had a number of requests to accommodate dietary restrictions and preferences and, with every weird request, they just said, "sure, we can do that!" Olivia and Christina were easy to communicate with and whenever we had trouble making decisions about the menu or event flow, they offered their guidance and expertise. We had at least 4 guests say it was the best food they ever had at an event! Many more complemented us on the delicious meal. Above all, the service was incredible. Things ran flawlessly and everyone was very well fed! You know you found an amazing caterer when the Argentines love the steak, the Italians love the burrata and the French love the cheese table all while keeping the vegans happy with an incredible roasted cauliflower dish. I highly recommend Olivia and her team! They nailed it! Thank you guysSent on 08/25/2019

Outstanding service and delicious food!
We could not have been happier about our experience with Olivia Cooks. We worked with Olivia and team to host a reception for close family the day before our wedding. From settling proposal/budget/rental details with Christina, to working with Olivia and Matt on the day of the party, we were pleased with every interaction and so delighted with the party that they helped us throw. Everyone we worked with was extremely professional. Christina was incredibly helpful in advising us on quantities, rentals, and menu. Olivia created the most beautiful and delicious spread (which got rave reviews from all the guests). Matt was so friendly, putting us at ease about everything, and extending his stay so we could continue the party for a bit longer. We cannot wait until we have the opportunity to work with Olivia and her team again!Sent on 09/02/2019
