Ken's Creative Kitchen did a large rehearsal dinner/ welcome party for 140 people at the Annapolis Maritime Museum. (I am mother of the groom.) There were delicious, ample passed hors d'oeuvres during the cocktail hour which included an oyster bar. Ken's let us provide the oysters as a family friend is in the seafood business. Dinner was a seated buffet. The food was outstanding and the service staff was gracious, professional, thoughtful -- making it a welcoming, casual evening. Exactly as we hoped it would be. From set up to clean up everyone was helpful and efficient. We worked with Suzy in planning, and Kona oversaw the event.

We were so very pleased with Ken's throughout the entire wedding planning process. From their flexibility with our tastings, to Suzy's responsiveness to my numerous emails leading up; they were just really great to work with! I was very particular about how I wanted our signature drink; it not only tasted yummy but looked so cute garnished with a little strawberry on the edge, just how I imagined it :) the food presentation was phenomenal. We were even brought a little tray of all the appetizers just for my husband and I to enjoy at the beginning of cocktail hour; because as most brides know it's nearly impossible to find time to eat at your own wedding! That was so thoughtful and much appreciated. The bar and tables were set up beautifully... The waitstaff, especially one older gentleman in particular, were extremely nice. And Helen was AWESOME! She always made sure my husband and I had a drink in our hands, and kept checking in on us throughout in case we needed anything at all. Our guests raved about the food; a couple friends in particular, and I quote, said: "That was the best salad I've ever had in my life" ...and that was just the SALAD before the actual entree! Ken's is amazing, and I highly recommend.

Ken's recently catered my daughter's wedding celebration in Annapolis, MD. We couldn't have been more pleased with the food and the service. The butler passed appetizers were fantastic! People couldn't get enough of the mini crab cakes or of the bacon wrapped scallops. Both were fresh, moist and delicious! The presentation at the food stations were creative, unique and served with class. Our friends are still raving about all of the great food that was served. And we have to mention the wonderful staff that worked at our celebration. They were extremely friendly, polite, cheerful and totally on top of everything. I never had to ask them to do anything. They thought of every last detail & handled them to perfection. To top it all off, their happiness only added to our joy. Many, many thanks to all of Ken's great team!

Ken's was a delight to work with. From our first meeting with Suzy from Ken's Creative Kitchen to our reception everything was perfect. Suzy helped to provide great suggestions and was instrumental in planning a lot of the details of our reception. The food was simply amazing. Every one of our guests kept telling us how awesome the food was. The crab cakes were delicious, the beef was cooked just right! Their basil thyme bread was seriously the best bread I've ever eaten. The entire staff was a huge help on our wedding day and made everything run smoothly and go off without a hitch!

Ken and his staff were amazing! He personally worked with us to create a delicious menu of cohesive courses, and assist in our wine pairing. He was very quick to respond to all of my emails and any questions I had. He was even able to create vegan plates with only a day's notice before the wedding! His event manager was spectacular and the food production was flawless. Ken and his staff knocked it out of the park!

Our daughter got married a week ago and I am still smiling. Everyone at Kens Creative Kitchen made the evening a complete success. Leading up to the wedding Ken was always available to talk with me about ideas and to answer my questions. Helen was our event manager and I can not say enough wonderful things about her! She was a delight and always smiling! She seemed to anticipate our every need and those of our guests. She made our daughter feel so special--even sending her and her new husband off with a bottle of wine and food. She thought of everything. The staff at kens did an outstanding job. They were so attentive making sure glasses were always full to beautifully serving the food. Many of our guests said the food was the best they had ever had. The kitchen staff did an outstanding job!! Hiring Kens Creative Kitchen is one of the best decisions I have ever made.

I have worked with Ken and his staff for over ten years, so there was no doubt in my mind that I would hire them when my turn finally arrived to host an event.

All of our guests TOTALLY RAVED about Ken's food and service ~ from the incredible lobster bisque, crab cakes and lavish cheese display to the ice cream sundae bar and surprise cookies & milk for dessert… people were all just completely blown away. Everyone raved about how delicious the fish and chicken entrees were, and such large portions! And last but not least, the BIGGEST CHALLAH anyone in our family has ever seen!

From the minute we arrived to set up for the party to getting the last load into our car, Ken and his staff were all so helpful and expeditious. We didn't realize how much work it was all going to be, and would have been so overwhelmed without their help.

We spent Sunday afternoon savoring the leftover food and wine at our house with our extended family. It was the perfect ending to the perfect weekend.

Ken is simply THE BEST!

Ken's Creative Kitchen is amazing. We worked with Suzy who helped us with every decision from the hors d’oeuvres to the butter knives. Our preview tasting included all six appetizers, both main courses and the accompaniments. The food was as good as any four star restaurant.
We were married on a Watermark yacht with a galley the size of my coat closet. The guests are still trying to figure out how they did it. We gave Suzy our ideas of “what” should happen “when” and she made it work. Every detail was perfection from the greeting on the deck with raspberry-infused lemonade to the fabulous desserts, served on the upper deck at sunset on navy and white stripped linens that were just perfect for our nautical theme.
It was a pleasure working with Suzy and I would recommend Ken’s for any event. They will exceed your expectations!
