Nicole’s made my wedding perfect in more than just their food. They helped to set up my tables exactly how I pictured them, they were always on top of me and my husband making sure we were happy with everything and went above and beyond taking care of us. One of the girls at Nicole’s over heard me telling my dad how upset I was with our Dj and without hesitation she came over told me she would handle it and in seconds was back and everything was fixed . Not only that but during the beginning of our reception I dropped an entire piece of eggplant rollitini on my dress and within seconds Nicole’s was at my side with seltzer, baby wipes and anything and everything she could think of to clean my dress which she did! Do not hesitate to hire them for any event !Sent on 10/03/2019

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!Sent on 09/12/2019

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!Sent on 09/16/2019

Nicole's Made Our Wedding Remarkable
We were completely blown away by Nicole's catering/events team. Kate Bender helped us curate the perfect menu that accommodated all of our guests dietary restrictions (veg/an, g-free & Halal) that was both delicious and creative. The on-site team made sure we had plenty to eat and drink, and checked-in on me frequently. They set up early and decorated our tables with our centerpieces beautifully. Every detail was perfect and I'm so glad we choose them for our special day.Sent on 09/05/2019

Delicious, restriction friendly, and incredibly helpful
Working with the team at Nicole's was like having another wedding coordinator. They were so helpful with not just the food, but also the setup of the event, the timing of the day, and much more. They wanted to make our day come true and offered advice and ideas on how to save money and still have an amazing experience. And oh yeah, the food was AMAZING. Guests have still been talking about it nonstop. As bride and groom, we were well taken care of throughout the night and felt as though all our needs were met wonderfully. My wife and several guests have celiac disease, so they were able to do 95% of the wedding entirely gluten free which was wonderful so everyone got to experience and taste what they are capable of.Sent on 07/09/2019

Hire Nicole's to cater your wedding!
We are beyond happy with our catering from Nicole’s - both the food and the service were top notch. Their package also includes all rentals (silverware, plates, glasses, linens) which helps save money. We had our wedding in my parents’ backyard with the reception under a tent that we rented. Nicole’s did an excellent job coordinating the day with the tent company that we used. They did a ton of work behind the scenes, making it easier on us from a planning perspective. The food was excellent, especially the passed appetizers. Highly recommend the bacon-wrapped dates and the manchego-stuffed peppers!Sent on 07/20/2019

Best day of our lives
My husband and I had the best wedding day ever. We were so thankful to have Nicole’s as our caterer for our big day. They were the caterer but SO much more. They took care of everything leading up to the wedding and the day of. We worked with Kate leading up to the day of and she was so amazing. She helped me with so much and continuously went out of her way to make sure I had everything I needed. On the day of the wedding, we had Monica with us and she was outstanding. She was so organized and professional. The whole entire staff was so attentive to ours and all of our guests needs. We never needed or wanted for anything. We just automatically had what we wanted before we even knew it. Oh, I should also mention, the food was incredible! We also did our rehearsal dinner with Nicole’s and everything was great. All of our family raved about the food. Thank you so much to Kate, Monica, and the entire Nicole’s Catering staff. You folks were so much more than a catering company. You were our wedding planners, our friends, and one of the greatest parts of our day. Thank you!!!!!Sent on 06/24/2019

We were not disappointed! Margaret, Kate, Sarah and staff were a pleasure to work with. Margaret customized the menu to our liking incorporating our nationalities within the food served. The service and food were EXCELLENT!!! My guests raved about our menu!! Margaret was also very detail oriented right down to the vintage mismatched China place settings that I adored! I can not recommend Nicole’s Restaurant and Catering enough!!!Sent on 10/23/2018

The Nicole's team was absolutely incredible. Tina made sure that my husband and I as well as our parents always had drinks and food. She kept things moving along and running on time. The things this team did were just amazing. The day was perfect in large parts to them!Sent on 10/23/2018

Everyone was raving about the filet!
Nicole's has the best food and the best team! Our guests have not stopped telling us how much they enjoyed their dinners (especially the filet!). Everything was delicious and ran smoothly. Kate was a LIFESAVER throughout the entire wedding planning process and the wedding day. She made sure I never had an empty drink in my hand and she is a bustle expert :-) The Nicole's team was fun, professional, and we highly recommend them!! Couldn't be happier with the service and the food.Sent on 10/25/2018

Nicole's food was tremendous. They nailed it in every way. The service was amazing. Kate exactly understood the food, drinks ,and atmosphere we wanted to create.They had drinks full all night ,and guests were all amazed by the food quality. It didnt diminish at all with a 110 person headcount. They absolutely helped bring my entire vision to a reality. I couldn't if done it without them. I cant say enough except you would be crazy not to hire them.Sent on 09/18/2018

We can’t say enough about how amazing Nicole’s was to work with...from the planning to the delicious food, they got every detail right. After we sat down with Kate and explained what we wanted, she helped us customize the perfect menu to fit our style and love of barbecue. Our guests are still raving about the food (especially the chicken and waffles, pulled pork sliders, and grilled cheese and tomato soup shooters!). The day of, Kate and the rest of the staff made sure everything ran smoothly and we had the most perfect day. They were so friendly and attentive and made sure we always had everything we wanted or needed, and our guests had an amazing time. Thank you Kate and Nicole’s!Sent on 08/26/2018
Katelyn · Married on 08/18/2018
Our wedding was at the NYS Museum this past August. There were a few specific reasons we chose Nicole’s over others, the most important to us was their utmost attention to detail. When we started this process I called another large, well-known catering company in the area and they basically pushed me off the phone and simply sent me an e-mail that had a pdf of over 100 pages on it and never followed up. Nicole’s was the total opposite, they literally sat down with us and discussed our plans/vision and afterwards sent us a very detailed menu proposal. For 18 months, we must have met/spoke a dozen times. They were always flexible to any changes we wanted to make and provided us so many great ideas/options for anything we were unsure of.Sent on 09/12/2018
Kate B. and Sarah C. went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make sure our day was absolutely perfect. Their passion truly shows through their work. We cannot recommend them enough- times a million!
Sarah · Married on 08/11/2018
Nicole's catered our wedding at Pat's Barn and the whole crew was fantastic. Not only was the food and service amazing, but they also took care of all the set up and coordination on the wedding day. Big props go to Kate who not only helped us plan everything from across the country (we live in California) but who also took care of our last minute changes a few days before. Everyone involved went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how delicious everything was. If you are going to get married in the capitol region, Nicole's is the way to go!Sent on 08/19/2018

My wife and I had an exceptional experience with Nicole's. Margaret and her team not only took care of us and all of our many requests from the first day of our process, but they did so with an awesome sense of professionalism and a positive attitude. We went for a tasting at their restaurant in Albany where met everyone on the team - incredible people with a true desire for what they create: delicious food. Our Day Of experience with Nicole's was next level amazing. They NAILED our entire wedding with gorgeous displays, remarkably delicious food that had all the guests raving, and an unparalleled sense of attention to both detail and to our guests! My wife and I felt like celebrities and so did our families. My mother didn't have time to prepare her own plate, so a server pulled her aside and provided her with one to be sure she ate. We also had an issue with the stove that had been delivered for Nicole's making their job about a million times more difficult - but I only know this in retrospect. I had no idea Day Of as they made it work flawlessly and without complaint. Cocktails: my brother is still talking about their "perfect" Blood Orange Old Fashioned and I'm still dreaming about their margarita. Every single server's smiling face at our reception set the tone for the night, which was the best night of our lives. Stars upon stars for this dreamy team!Sent on 08/21/2018

If you are considering hiring Nicole's Restaurant and Catering for your wedding or any other important event, I strongly recommend that you do! We had our wedding at Pat's Barn this August and it could not have gone any smoother. We worked with Kate throughout the planning process and she was so kind and knowledgeable. Kate took the time to understand our vision, made wonderful recommendations and guided us each step of the way. The menu tasting was spectacular and only made us more excited for our big day. At our final meeting before the wedding were confident that everyone was on the same page and we were set up for a fantastic wedding. I cannot say enough about Sarah and the catering team the day of the event! The venue was decorated exactly how we envisioned it and I didn't have to do anything the morning of the wedding to make that happen. Sarah helped coordinate the ceremony so everyone was where they needed to be at the right time. After the ceremony the staff was ready with tray's full of our signature cocktails and hors d'oeuvres for the bridal party. Throughout the night their incredible service continued as they made sure our parents, the bridal party, our guest and my husband and I had everything we needed and more. Their service goes beyond well presented, delicious tasting food. They truly are a team that creates an experience you and your guest will not forget! Thank you to the entire team for making our wedding dreams come true!Sent on 08/16/2018

Working with Nicole’s honestly made everything so easy on the wedding day! In addition to being caterers, they also assist with some elements of coordinating the wedding and making sure the day flows smoothly. And of course, the food was delicious and they were able to customize everything for us!Sent on 07/15/2018
Lauren · Married on 06/30/2018
I was a little worried about how everything would run considering the caterer was offsite but they did such an amazing job I don’t think anyone knew they weren’t a part of the venue. Their team was so attentive and friendly. They took care of setting everything up and breaking everything down. They were very responsive and thourogh in their planning meetings as well. Absolutely wonderful!Sent on 07/02/2018

My husband and I got married at Burlap and Beams in Athol, NY in June 2018 and we used Nicole's Restaurant and Catering for our wedding. Words cannot describe how amazing the catering staff was!! Sarah was our event coordinator and she made sure everything was perfect and she succeeded! Her calm demeanor helped myself and my husband remain calm prior to the start of the ceremony! The food was so delicious, our guest are still raving about it! The food was also pleasing to the eye! Everything was beyond perfect and one main reason for this, is because Nicole's Restaurant and Catering made it that way!! They went above and beyond what most catering companies would do. From setting up our lawn games, to coordinating our bridal procession order, to making sure myself and my husband had a snack or drink in hand! Saying they were perfect is an understatement! I would recommend them to anyone for any occasion!Sent on 08/11/2018
Thank you so much for everything!

Fantastic food and elegant service! Sarah Carricbolo was our Service Captain and REALLY LISTENED to everything we wanted to project. She artfully created an ice cream sundae (build your own) dessert bar that was delicious and stunning to look at! Our guests RAVED about the food...filet mignon, grilled salmon, chicken parm, and portobello mushroom veggie tower...everyone was thrilled! Passed hot ordeurves and mediterranean farm table made cocktail hour elegant and fun. Servers constantly rotated among tables to pour a wonderful selection of wines and Sarah was over-seeing everything the entire, fabulous night! Who knew a tented reception could be so dazzling and elegant? Thanks Sarah!Sent on 10/25/2017

It's so rare that people leave a wedding saying "everything was perfect." But after our wedding, all we kept hearing was "the food was perfect, the service was perfect, the menu was perfect...everything was perfect." Nicole's is INCREDIBLE. From beginning to end, they were on our team. They were so thoughtful, helpful, and accommodating and FUN to work with! Sarah was our event coordinator and she totally got what we were going for. We always felt like we were in good hands. Oh, and people cannot stop talking about the steak...would highly recommend. Thank you, Margaret, Sarah, and the Nicole's team for making our wedding so perfectly delicious!Sent on 10/29/2017

Nicole's Catering went above and beyond our expectations for our wedding, and our coordinator Kate was outstanding!! All of our guests have been still RAVING about how delicious the food was! The staff was so professional through the entire planning process, especially on the actual wedding day. We loved being able to customize our menu to our taste & style.

There is literally nothing I can say about Nicole's that isn't fabulous. From the first time we met with Sarah and Margaret until our big day, everything was top notch. They are both awesome. Honest, pleasant and SO FUNNY and FUN.Sent on 12/07/2017
Sarah made me giggle SO MANY TIMES in the months that led up to our big day. She took my worries away and gave us the gift of a special day we will always remember.
We renewed our vows after 30 years, and having never had a real wedding the first time, wanted to have something memorable and fun for our family and friends.
This day was everything I had hoped for and more and the price was more than reasonable.
We had the most delish menu with an off the charts cocktail hour with delicious displays a mac and cheese and meatball bar and hand passed nibbles like mini Reuben's with Guinness shooters .
We had a fabulous signature drink- the "Apple of my eye Sangria" which packed a punch!
Every single person I asked told me that the food was insanely delish. One person said, "I even ate the Brussels sprouts and wanted to lick the plate"! The food was that good!
Sarah and her team were always there offering us food and drink, even spiriting us away for a little quiet time before dinner for some appetizers and drinks so we could catch our breath.
Everything looked incredible and fancy and luxurious. The tables looked stunning and the bars were set up perfectly.
Sarah even brought her fun light up "bar" sign.
We also had a crazy delish chocolate fountain- rivers of molten chocolate with delish dippers and Sarah set up the most memorable candy bar I have ever seen! My guests LOVED everything about the day!
This is the BEST caterer is the upstate area. I HIGHLY recommend them for ANY special occasion. They also have a fabulous dinner menu at Nicole's on Delaware Avenue.
Check them out! You wont be sorry!
Thank you Margaret and especially Sarah!!
