  • 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.

  • 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!

  • OMG. You will NOT go wrong with choosing Lola’s for your catering needs! We still have guests from our wedding that was at The Hill in Hudson I’m May 26th 2018 raving about them! The food was UNBELIVEABLE, and the staff was AMAZING!! They were so incredibly helpful and attentive. It was incredibly hot the day of our wedding and the staff busted their butts running up and sown the stairs and constantly had cold water refills. The food and cocktails were unreal, and I had so many guests say it was the BEST wedding food they had ever had. Everything was so fresh and delicious! The strawberry mojitos they served for our cocktail hour were so refreshing. My husband and I are so happy we chose Lola’s- Eddie and Annalise we so helpful and on point from start to finish! Annalise was a rockstar the day of! She put our minds at ease, and made sure everything came out perfect! I was to host another event just so they can cater it. Thank you Lola’s, you guys are AMAZING!!

  • Everything was wonderful. I think the key to their success is their team from top to bottom and that they cook all the food on site. People are still talking about the food at our wedding. I highly recommend Ed and his team!

  • I honestly don’t even know where to begin!!!!!!! I used Lola’s Cafe for my wedding at Brotherhood Winery. Annalise went ABOVE & BEYOND for an entire year: menu planning, working with our budget, phone conferences, timely emails, organizing rentals, table layouts, & setting up tables & centerpieces. Not only that, but she lent me her own personal snowboots for my outdoor pictures (we had a snowstorm on our wedding day). Annalise, you are a miracle worker! Ed took the time to come out and speak to us during our private tasting at Crave - he was so receptive to our questions & concerns. He was creative & professional which was clearly portrayed in his dishes. Fast foward to the wedding day....the venue was set up PERFECTLY by Annalise & the staff (exactly how I envisioned), the cocktail hour & entrees were UNBELIEVABLE...I don’t have a SINGLE negative thing to say about the food or service, nor did my guests! Everyone was RAVING about the food (and still are). The servers & staff we... Read more

  • My husband and I used Lola's to cater our wedding, and we could not have been happier. Eddie was very accommodating, and Annalise was a joy to work with. The ingredients were local and fresh, the food was innovative. The price was lower than other caterers, and the food far surpassed other tastings we attended. Both our cocktail hour and dinner food was outstanding. The servers at the wedding were extremely helpful and professional. We were very impressed with the service, the quality of the food, and our overall experience. We would recommend them in a second! Thank you Lola's!

  • My now-husband is a chef, so when we started planning our wedding, we knew our friends and family would all be anticipating an amazing, top-notch meal and we've always believed "Food is Love." We met with several caterers and were seriously underwhelmed with their limited menus. Finally, we sat down with Eddie and Annalise and right away, we knew we'd found the right fit! From Eddie's off-the-cuff and brilliant menu ideas to Annalise's professional manor and generous attention to EVERY detail, there was not a single part of our cocktail hour, dinner, or dessert that was not awe-inspiring and delicious. Annalise answered all of my (numerous) questions and checked on us throughout the process. She made sure we got to try a little bit of everything -- this bride actually ATE at her wedding thanks to Annalise and the whole staff! And let's talk servers!!! Like well-dressed clockwork, they trooped around each table in turn so no one was left waiting to be served. From the creative sa... Read more

  • 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

  • What can I say that hasn't already been said? Lola's is simply amazing, most especially Annalise. She and Eddie designed the perfect menu for our October 7 wedding at Crested Hen Farm and catered it to our specific wants and needs. I cannot stress enough how much everyone raved about how awesome the good was and that it was the best good they ever had at a wedding. In addition, the staff was incredibly friendly and we are so grateful for that. They were perfect and I couldn't be happier with the outcome of everything. Thank you for taking care of us. ♡Kait and Chris
