  • The Lola's team is amazing. From working out every detail of the menu and accommodating dietary needs, they've got it covered. We had an incredible harvest table and delicious buffet that our guests are still talking about. The best part is the team made sure my husband and I got enough food, which we really appreciated! I'd highly recommend their service.

  • Patty, Billy and the Lola’s team are all absolutely amazing, professional and wonderful to work with. We got married at a Vineyard in August and had to bring in almost everything. Patty helped me coordinate all of that and more. She checked in with me almost every day in the week leading up to the wedding, answering all my questions and calming my nerves. She was there the day before helping me get all the details in place. Everything went perfectly and smoothly the day of the wedding. If I forgot anything, Patty had it done already or had what I needed. She is a godsend! The food was absolutely delicious and Billy is a talented and creative chef. I had multiple guests tell me it was the best meal they had had at a wedding! The cocktail hour display was gorgeous and passed apps were great. I highly recommend this team for your wedding.

  • The Lola’s team was absolutely amazing! They were incredibly helpful and were on top of everything! I don’t know how I would have made it through my wedding without Patty’s help. The food was delicious and we got so many compliments from guests. I would highly recommend them to anyone

  • We had the most amazing experience with Lola's Cafe and Catering! They came highly recommended by our planner and did not disappoint. Chef Eddie is an incredible chef and a great guy, so down to earth and humble. His colleague Annalise is also lovely and incredible at the planning and execution of the event. After talking to us to understand our preferences he created a draft menu which we could revise as we liked, though we were so impressed with it we didn't change much if anything!! We then had a tasting where he made a beautiful fully plated version of each dish so we could see how it would be presented at the wedding. It was all so delicious, way beyond what we are used to eating at weddings. We hired Lola's to do our rehearsal dinner, wedding, and next-day brunch. Every single meal was delicious, fresh, and beautiful. Eddie takes a lot of pride in how he sources his food and cooks everything fresh on site. Their staff was so amazing, professional, friendly and courteous, the exec... Read more

  • WOW! I dont even know where to start. Lola's catering was our team that executed our wedding day at Locust Grove Estate this past weekend. 1st- the food is amazing there is no arguing that, we knew the food was good based on previous reviews but after meeting Chef Billy and after the tasting we were soo excited to EAT at our wedding. Our guests raved about the cocktail hour (swedish meatballs and chicken wings were Huge hits) and the meals were mouth watering, My groom LOVED his steak and the chicken with risotto was all my family could talk about. As a bride, my favorite part of Lola's team was Patty, the day of WOMAN!! She started working with me in the fall, and always kept me on track, handled all our rentals, and set up everything I asked day of. She did it all with a smile and my groom and I joked she felt like she was our mom and made sure our day was perfect like we were her kids. We cant thank her enough! The staff we had, waiters, bartenders were sooo nice. They were ... Read more

  • This review is for Patty and Billy at Lola's catering. My wife and I were doing all of the planning ourselves, and Patty was unbelievably helpful. She walked us through every step of the process, from the menu to the setup and coordination on the day of the event. She had already worked with all of our vendors at previous events, and took care of all the small details. She was very responsive and easy to communicate with. On our wedding day, Lola's staff was super attentive, even making sure that my elderly grandfather had everything the needed. They were extremely professional, and very attentive to the guests' needs. Would give 6 stars if I could. Can't go wrong with this dynamic duo, they are a well oiled machine!

  • We used Lola's Catering for our wedding at the Hill in Hudson NY in May 2019, and they were AMAZING! Everyone was commenting on how the food was "The best wedding food they've ever had" and our wedding planner couldn't stop complimenting the food. The best part for the bride and groom is that they're amazing to work with throughout the entire planning process. From menu preparation to the tasting to the final presentation during the reception, they delivered. Annalise is one of the easiest people you will ever have the pleasure of working with and Abby helped everything run smoothly on the day of. Eddie is an incredible chef with a vision for your wedding so trust him thorughout the menu development process, you will thank us you did! We are huge Lola's fans and will be recommending them to our friends and family for years to come. Thanks Annalise, Abby and Eddie for your hard work!

  • I cannot begin to quantify how amazing it was to work with Lola’s Catering. If you need a wedding catered, look no further!! Seriously, Lola’s was the bright spot of our wedding and wedding planning. There is not one guest we speak to that doesn’t mention amazing food, amazing service, and amazing cocktail hour. People were gushing over the steak and chicken that was served. The bar service was top notch! Our wedding was May 25th 2019 and we started working with Annalise Puckette back in early 2018. She hopped on numerous calls to go over planning and came up with a plan. After a few easy months of decisions, we circled back and Annalise created our wonderful menu. Fast forward about 30 days before the big day and we met on site to go through the plan of the day. Annalise was so incredibly thorough, detailed, and just all around amazing. We felt super settled and excited about our wedding. It was one huge item that we just did not need to worry about, because we knew Lola... Read more

  • Choosing Lola's was by far the easiest decision we made for the wedding. Annalise and Chef Ed worked with my husband and I to create a menu that was inspired by our travels and with ingredients that were also in season. They were always available to answer any questions I had and were super flexible when it came to last minute changes. The food, the staff, and the service were all amazing. Everyone raved about the food and the service all night long. Lola's is incredible and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for delicious food and the ability to create a one-of-a-kind menu!

  • All I can say is AMAZING. Amazing food, Amazing staff and Amazing service. I'm a culinary grad and hard to please. The Lola's team absolutely knocked it out of the park. Chef Ed worked with me on creating a fun, unique and inspired seasonal menu that pleased my taste buds as well as my guests. Annalise worked with me from start to finish to make sure my vision was delivered (it was better than I could have ever imagined!). They were always available to answer my questions and made the wedding planning process a breeze. Their team has such experience doing large catered events, I am still getting compliments from my wedding guests a month later. If you're looking for a creative menu (not the same old meat and potatoes) with incredible personal decor touches.... Lola's is a no brain-er. They are professional and I cannot say enough great things about them!

  • I literally do not know where to start! Choosing a caterer that offered our guests fresh, local ingredients was number one on our wedding to-do list! When I reached out to Annalise at Lola's Cafe, she was extremely friendly and enthusiastic about creating a menu that was perfect for all of our guests. We had a handful of guests attending our wedding who are gluten free and Annalise reassured us that Eddie could create a menu with this in mind. Throughout the process, Annalise graciously tolerated my indecisiveness and offered guidance/support making us ALWAYS feel confident in our decisions. On the day of our wedding, the staff arrived with smiles and created an eating experience that our guests are still talking about! One of our ring bearers (who is quite picky) was so excited to share with us that Lola's herb roasted chicken with lemon parsley butter was "the best darn chicken" he had ever tasted! The guests were raving about the butternut squash ravioli and mini meatball parmesa... Read more

  • Choosing Lola's was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. When you book Lola's you get delicious, beautiful presented food, expertly crafted cocktails, a rental liaison, event set up and design, and a team of top talent dedicated to making sure everything is perfect on your day. We got married at Nostrano Vineyards on 9/8/18. Nostrano's is a drop dead gorgeous site, but in order to have a wedding there you need to bring in outside catering and rentals. Lola's has a great relationship with Nostrano's. Before booking Nostrano's we scheduled introduction calls with a few caterers to get a better sense of what the costs would be for catering and event rentals. Lola's came highly recommended and after our call with Annalise we could totally see why! She immediately put us at ease and was entirely accommodating of our requests and budget. She also coordinated all the rentals through Events Unlimited. Shortly after booking Lola's we met Annalise at the rental showroom and sel... Read more

  • Lola's catered our wedding at the Farm at Pond Lily, and we were blown away by both the quality of the food and how wonderful they were to work with. From our first inquiry onward, Lola's was always prompt, informative, and accurate with answers to our (many, many) questions by email or phone. Lola's was able to quickly provide us an accurate quote and they were incredibly accommodating of our requests. Their culinary abilities and range is truly staggering, and I have no doubt that they can put together a fantastic menu of whatever dishes you could want. We were able to tweak the menu to our exact specifications. The food itself was exceptional. I went into this process with the assumption that all wedding food kind of sucked because it had to be prepared on such a large scale. Our tasting at Lola's in New Paltz gave me hope, as everything we had was phenomenal, and what was served on the day of was equal to or better than what we had for just the two of us. What you sample will tr... Read more

  • Lola's was our caterer for our wedding at A Private Estate in Germantown, NY, and we had such an incredible experience with them. Everyone on their team is pleasant and professional. Both the appetizers and entrees were delicious (we had chicken, steak, and vegetarian pasta), and our guests commented to us directly how good the food was (especially given the low bar many guests have for wedding food). Lola's even created a custom late-night to-go snack that our guests loved. The service the day of the wedding was flawless. I would highly recommend using Lola's for your wedding!

  • We would like to give a huge thank you to Ed Kowalski, the owner of Lola's Cafe and the Crave Restaurant, and to all the staff at Lola's Cafe who helped to give my son and his new bride the best wedding weekend ever. Many, many heart felt thanks for your amazing food and service on Saturday, on our Rhinebeck farm. We can’t thank you enough for your exceptional food from Lola’s, which you all magically prepared for our son’s wedding on Sept 22nd. Completely fresh and delicious and for 170 people! Our guests, both family and friends, were completely "Wow’d” by the food ! The chefs were incredible. And the table staff service as well as the bartenders and bar set ups were nothing short of outstanding. Amazingly delicious fresh and high quality farm to table appetizers, main courses and side courses. All with the delicious sauces we chose at our pre- tasting. The dining experience exceeded our already high expectations! Thank you for your skills and your dedication o... Read more
