We had our wedding at Camp Loughridge so we were required to use Catering Kitchen. Now, let me first say that I love Kathy at Camp Loughridge and I loved Camp Loughridge. However, I would advise any bride not to use Camp Loughridge because you will also need to use Catering Kitchen.
My wedding was on October 26 and the final payment for the food was due 10 days before the wedding. I emailed and called Aila, the owner of Catering Kitchens, but never got a hold of her. I asked my wedding planner to contact her hoping she would have better luck. On October 16th, I asked my wedding planner if she had gotten a hold of Aila and she said she hadn't.
I never got to have a finalization meeting. Instead, on the 24th, 2 days before the wedding I finally received the invoice! I was then told, very rudely by her assistant Brandi, that I needed to pay it that day. I was hoping to spend that day relaxing, but instead I ran around trying to get this payment made before 5 that evening.
My mother-in-law called Brandi to pay over the phone. She specified that she wanted $1000 to go to food and $427 to go to two cases of wine for an open bar. My sister and I rushed over to Camp Loughridge and paid the rest. We double checked to make sure everything was squared away. Aila told us everything was taken care of.
The next day, on the 25th, Brandi called us and told us that we had not paid for the alcohol. We were confused because we thought my mother-in-law paid for the alcohol, but Brandi disregarded what my mother-in-law said about her split payment and decided to put all the money toward the balance for the food. Brandi's excuse was that I said only my fiance or myself can make changes to the menu. It is true that I said this, but I also told them that my mother-in-law would be calling to add wine to the menu and that she is welcome to. Not once did we hear an apology.
She also gave away my mother-in-law's credit card info to my mother! DO NOT HIRE THEM!

Talk about great service and great food! All we have heard about the food is how much everyone loved it! They even made us a plate for us to eat BEFORE we got into the reception so we were able to actually eat the food.. and WOW, talk about great! Mashed Potato Martini Bar is a MUST.. It's delicious! It's fun! They also did our alcohol for the wedding too and did such a great job... 100% recommend!

Both of my older sisters used Catering Kitchen for their weddings so I knew I wanted to use them for my wedding. The food had been really good at my sister's weddings and so when I met with them at their office I took the $500.00 cash deposit. Their numbers didn't add up to what their website or book that they have at the quoting meeting were. I'm not sure how they had so many hidden fees, but somewhere they managed to screw up my entire budget. When I asked for another, more simple quoted, they didn't respond-for 5 months. They said they would give me another quote but by then I already had quotes from another caterer who I could actually reach when I had questions. I told Catering Kitchen I was thinking of using the other caterer but would love for them to do my cake with the money from the deposit and just bill me the rest. I sent them a picture (this is about a month and a half before the wedding) they said they could do it. When I asked them to bill me the difference if the cake was going to be more than $500.00 they said that if they didn't do all of the catering they would not do the cake. No where was this mentioned in the contract I signed nor was it mentioned when I said I had quotes from another caterer that I was planning on using or even when I sent them the picture. So, about a month before my wedding I now have all of the last minute preparations and I get to find a bakery to do my cake. It was more stressful than I would ever wish no anyone. Catering Kitchen does have good food, but if you are looking for an upfront, honest quoted that tells you what you are paying for or if you're looking for a caterer you can contact who won't change the terms of your agreement at the last minute then you may want to keep looking. I would not recommend them to a friend, maybe an enemy, but not a friend.

My daughters wedding was held yesterday morning. For her food she wanted a waffle bar, biscuits and gravy, a carving station of ham and the standards of fruit and cheese. In addition, due to the fact that it was morning and we has a significant number of children attending - we did want baskets of assorted pastries on the table while the rest of the pictures were being taken. Let me just say - the food was phenomenal. Guests alike commented on the wonderful taste, but in addition the presentation was breathtaking. It was almost too pretty too eat. The staff was great ( it was held at Camp Loughridge) and if I had one drawback it would be the way that we were rushed out of the building at the end. However on their defense they did have another wedding coming after us. A superb venue, a superb meal. We would definitely use this catering service again!!!!!

Catering Kitchen has a lot of positive feedback as a caterer and for good reason: the food is awesome! For my reception dinner I asked for a 'surf n' turf' menu with filet mignon and lemon shrimp with mashed yukon potatoes with asparagus. Bread rolls accompanied the dinner as well as plenty of butter for the guests. They also had a very nice selection of drinks, from red and white wine and various imported and domestic beers. Their rented china was solid, not-chipped or dirty and looked great with my tablescape set up. These guys know what they're doing, and their waitstaff was polite and on their game.

This food is amazing. The only thing we heard from all of our guest was how awesome the food was! We even had this company do our cake instead of going to a cake company. That was so convenient and Kiersten (the cake decorator) is absolutely amazing. We had a 4 tier cake (more than we needed) and many people went back for seconds! Our cake was completely gone.

They are very laid back, easy to work with, very upfront, offer great ideas and make a menu personalized to you.

The only concern we heard from our guest is that the staff was quick to clean up their plates when they were not quite done with their food (they got up to mingle around).. some people were disappointed that they didn't get to finish the tasty awesome food. To me, if thats the only concern, thats pretty good!

Food was awesome. and consistent. and gluten free!

The food was very delicious!!!!
Aila was very helpful to us selecting and narrowing down our menu. She gave us her suggestions from her experience but ultimately allowed us to pick and choose what we wanted.
The set up all of the table lines and chairs. They also finished cutting and serving the cake.
