We used them for our wedding two weeks ago and couldn’t have been happier! We stayed at our venue for two days so not only did they cater our reception but also two brunches for family and the wedding party. Every single bit of food was amazing and their team was so friendly and on top of everything! They even went out of their way to make sure my husband and I were taken care of and actually got to eat, which we all know is hard! They are an exceptional caterer and I couldn’t recommend them higher! :)Sent on 10/12/2017

Lauren walked us through every step of the process, with great suggestions and attention to detail. John made us feel welcome at the storefront. Matt ran our event beautifully and worked with us to make sure it was exactly what we wanted. Our guests all complimented the food (including the vegans and gluten-free eaters) and were impressed with the presentation and service.
We finally found a vendor that combined great food and really warm, professional service. I can't recommend them enough!!
And... we'll definitely continue to drop by the store for takeout!

The Kitchen has been catering for our family and friends since the early eighties. I wanted to use them for my wedding because we knew and trusted them, but I am also a graduate of the French Culinary Institute in New York so it was important to me that the food be outstanding.Sent on 07/23/2013
We were not disappointed. The food was incredible - so much so that guest after guest kept coming up and telling us that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding.
You will be in great hands with The Kitchen!
