  • My husband and I had previously been to a wedding at Lacuna Lofts that used LM catering for their wedding and we were blown away. This is the best wedding food I have ever had. From apps to the maid dish nothing disappointed. This was our first experience with LM catering and was a large factor in choosing Lacuna as our wedding venue a few years later. When choosing your wedding menu about 6 months from your date you will have a tasting. Depending on the package you have chosen you are able to choose several options from each category to taste test prior to making your final decisions. This tasting exceeded my expectations. We chose our tasting options and upon arrival at the test kitchen we were greated with a glass of wine and a full tasting experiance. The tasting began in a smaller "bar" like room where we had a glass of wine and the appetizers we had chosen. We were given tasting booklets for notes as to not confuse any of the dishes. Once we had completed the first part ... Read more

  • My wife and I had our wedding catered through LM Catering on September 7th, 2019 at City View Loft and we are incredibly happy about the decision to use them!! This was no ordinary wedding food, and we heard nothing but great things on the day of the wedding! It's hard to create truly amazing food, and it's a Herculean task to create it for 150 people, but LM can and did!! My wife and I ordered the NY Strip Steak, Pan Seared Chicken Breast, and Roasted Cauliflower Steak for our wedding guests, and I have yet to hear anything but rave reviews from our guests! We had guests actually come up to us and tell us they would order this food if it was available at a restaurant, that's how good they said it was! I can't remember the last time I thought that about food at a wedding, but after dealing with LM Catering, I'm not surprised!! From the tasting, to the big day, these caterers do NOT disappoint! If you have the option to use them, or are looking at their venue space, Ci... Read more

  • While we didn't actually get the option to choose catering, as our venue (City View Loft) utilizes LM Catering, we couldn't be happy with our food options and how everything turned out day off. Their menu options were some of the most unique options we have seen and it was such a blast choosing things during our tasting. While there were the standard tomato soup and grilled cheese shooters for passed appetizers, we also had options we had never had at a wedding, like octopus and polenta cakes and cherry smoked beef. The main course options were also amazing and so hard to pick. It's easy to go with a good steak and salmon option but we also included duck on our menu and had more unique options to include like empanadas or mahi mahi. We were anticipating how everything would turn out day of, because we know how much more difficult it is to cook for 120 people than it is for four. Considering how many compliments we received (particularly on that duck!), I would say that they did a pheno... Read more

  • This is a review of LM Catering at Lacuna Lofts since they were our caterers and managed the venue for us. They were accommodating and easy to work with, we can’t recommend them enough. First, the people are amazing. You rely on your venue and caterer to do a lot, our contact Lorraine, was amazing. She answered every crazy question and accommodated all of our requests and countless emails. We planned our wedding from halfway across the country with a pretty inflexible schedule and they always found time to meet with us whenever we were in town (including doing our tasting 2 days before Christmas when it was the only day we were free!) I really can’t say enough about how great all of LM, but Lorraine especially, was to work with. Wedding planning can be stressful so it’s nice to have a vendor you know you can rely on and who you look forward to seeing. Second, the food from LM was great. We were worried about what we were going to get (and how much we were going to pay!) g... Read more

  • For our wedding, we had a somewhat unique situation as we were going to be catering dinner through an Indian restaurant owned by a family friend, but still needed to rent all tableware, linens, glasses, bartenders & servers. We also wanted passed appetizers during cocktail hour. Many caterers were unwilling to help us since we were not using them for dinner, and the other ones that were quoted us outrageous prices. LM came back with the most affordable quote and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. We worked with Nicole, who was so professional & helpful. We were given a tasting of appetizers we selected ahead of time and they worked with the Indian restaurant to ensure everything was fully covered. The service was impeccable and the appetizers were delicious. I would absolutely recommend LM to anyone looking for assistance with an event- they are extremely flexible, have delicious food & a wonderful staff.

  • If I knew what I was getting into I would have chosen a different venue. My venue only offered one catering company and one catering manager. Tanya was extremely difficult to work, taking weeks to respond to emails and phone calls. That was ok in the beginning of planning but when it's three days before your wedding and you have attempted to talk multiple times and she comes at you with 100 questions that needed to be answered immediately? Well that's unacceptable. No sense of urgency and all within her own time frame. I had to show up to venue to get anything done because I knew she would be forced to talk to me. I am extremely laid back but she was awful. They either need to hire someone else or add another position to help answer emails. During our tasting, Tanya brought the wrong salad and desserts. Thank god I had been to a wedding with the same catering company and knew what I wanted. The linen was incorrect even though I specified exactly what we wanted and had ... Read more

  • First off allow me to begin by saying Tanya the Director of Catering Services at Zhou B was polite to my wife and I over the course of 1 year in our working with her. However, we feel as if LM was inadequate in their professionalism. From the onset, it was a constant cat and mouse game for my wife an I to get a response from LM. She would take weeks to respond to our emails and phone calls. It got so bad that my wife and I both took days off of work to show up unannounced at Zhou B as we knew that was the only way they could not avoid us. In addition, on more than one occasion LM misplaced our check payments for the venue. This lack of professionalism proved costly as it brought on vast amounts of stress for family, friends, and most importantly us. The day of the wedding, we did not have the Director of Catering's direct line and needed to speak with them regarding a vendor issue. Members of the bridal party were then forced to leave their respective wedding preparations out o... Read more

  • There are so many delicious options. We had a hard time narrowing our choices. They also insured that we had a warm meal as we talked to our guests.
