  • Nicole's was wonderful to work with from start to finish! The food and service were superb! I am gluten free and they accommodated me so I could have everything and it was delicious! Would definitely recommend! Working with Kate was a pleasure and she took care of everything!

  • Nicole’s did an amazing job catering our backyard wedding in Albany in October 2020. We put our small wedding together in a span of several weeks (we could not hold our wedding at our planned venue due to Covid) and from the start Kate at Nicole’s was 100% responsive and professional, helping us every step of the way when we called or emailed questions. The night of our wedding their staff was thoroughly prepared and made sure our 15 guests had a great time. The appetizers, main course and dessert were fantastic. We would highly recommend them for any event you need catered.

  • Right from our first planning call, Kate, Sarah, and the team at Nicole’s were professional, excited, and beyond easy to work with. They were willing to trek it out to our venue in the middle of nowhere to help us map out just how the day would look a couple months beforehand. Even with the craziness of the times and limitations, they made our wedding day amazing. Everyone raved about the food served (appetizers included bacon-wrapped chorizo-stuffed dates, potato and cheese pierogies, caprese skewers, and more, and entrees included Boursin-stuffed chicken, sirloin tips, glazed salmon on a mango salsa, tortellini primavera, and more!). We wish we could eat this food for every meal! We highly recommend Nicole’s for their amazingly delicious food and drinks, but also for their professionalism, can-do attitude, and because they are just overall great to work with.

  • One of the most memorable aspects of a wedding is the food. Our guests couldn't get over how delicious Nicole's catering was. Every meal was put together with such attention to detail. All the servers, staff and coordinators were outstanding. So friendly, funny and professional. Kate went out of her way to hand deliver my husband and I cups of water and snacks during our photo session. 100% recommend this company and will use again in the future for other events.

  • I don't even know how to begin to thank Nicole's for their INCREDIBLE catering of our backyard wedding. We were so sad to have to move our wedding due to the pandemic for July 2021, but then decided to plan an 11 person backyard dinner, and Kate and Terry and James, and everyone at Nicole's were amazing. Kate and I were back and forth on email and the phone a lot, and she was so flexible, and reassuring, and creative, and just made us feel so at ease with this weird wedding that we were having. Then, the day of, the amazing set up and flow of the dinner was just amazing, and Terry and James were THE BEST!! They were so friendly, and thought of EVERYTHING - they were just everywhere at every moment, and just made everything look amazing. It was SO NICE of Kate to come by too to check on everything! We are really excited because we got to meet Terry this July, and she will be at our wedding next year as well! My entire family can't stop talking about how incredible Nicole's is, and... Read more

  • Nicole’s catering is simply amazing. Kate was our coordinator and she was so easy to work with. She was receptive to all our wants from the beginning. Day of the wedding, everything was seamless. Our guests RAVED about the food and impeccable service. The staff were so attentive; at one point I was at the bar and mentioned that I wanted to get a cupcake, one of the women seemed to come out of nowhere and had a plate with cupcakes and desserts

  • Nicole's Catering was amazing at our wedding this past fall (10/12/19). My husband and I were so impressed with the food, attention to details, and service. All of the staff were so very nice and super attentive to all of our guests and family. Nicole's catering was also very helpful during the planning stages. They were able to accommodate our food needs and work with us on our changing guest count. We also requested a small cake through them for the reception and it was great. My husband and I highly recommend for weddings and recommend scheduling the tasting as well beforehand. Thank you to Nicole's catering and their staff! Jasmin & Corey

  • Nicole's made my wedding dream a reality. Food and drinks were very important to us, which Nicole's absolutely rocked at, but they are so much more than just the food!! The staff made me feel like a celebrity all day, always asking if I needed anything, having a fresh drink ready for me before I could even ask. I communicated with Kate, Sarah, and Margaret prior to the wedding, they answered every single question I asked and offered their ideas to help me create my perfect day! Kate was there the day of the wedding, along with many staff members who worked around the guests so perfectly- no one was ever in the way but somehow someone was always available to help. When I say my wedding day went perfectly, it was because of Nicole's. They are advertised as a FULL SERVICE catering company, and they truly are just that. I could not have asked for better people to work with. The guests loved every item on the menu, the drinks were amazing, and our cocktail hour was BOMB. I cannot recommend ... Read more

  • Nicole’s made my wedding perfect in more than just their food. They helped to set up my tables exactly how I pictured them, they were always on top of me and my husband making sure we were happy with everything and went above and beyond taking care of us. One of the girls at Nicole’s over heard me telling my dad how upset I was with our Dj and without hesitation she came over told me she would handle it and in seconds was back and everything was fixed . Not only that but during the beginning of our reception I dropped an entire piece of eggplant rollitini on my dress and within seconds Nicole’s was at my side with seltzer, baby wipes and anything and everything she could think of to clean my dress which she did! Do not hesitate to hire them for any event !

  • Kayla and I are so happy to have worked with Nicole's in order to fulfill our diverse wedding food requests. We didn't want to go with a standard "Chicken, steak, or salmon" dinner, and we were delighted to be able to serve our guests foods ranging from Italian, Asian (including sushi!), Mexican, etc. In particular, we had requested dinner stations for the three aforementioned food types, and Nicole's not only provided amazing quality food for each of them, but their service in planning the meal and executing the dinner day-of was spot-on. In particular, Margaret, Melinda, and Kate were all very attentive to our needs for the day (e.g., ensuring that there would be vegetarian options for every food style). Furthermore, they took special care of me and Kayla by ensuring that, after the ceremony, we were able to try all of the hors d'oeuvres and our specialty cocktail, and during dinner they provided us multiple dinner plates without us having to worry about serving ourselves. They were ... Read more

  • Amazing! I just wish I could give them more stars! Nicole's catered my barn wedding in upstate NY and did such an amazing job. The food- from the Hazelnut Chicken Bites to the Pumpkin Ravioli to the Cannolis- was absolutely wonderful and I've received so many compliments from my guests! Just as good if not better was my experience working with the staff. Kate helped me to plan an elegant and delicious day and was really so attentive to my questions in the planning process. The day of, EVERY staff member was incredible. Because of my experience with Kate, I felt very comfortable having them set up our decorations beforehand at the venue and they did a beautiful job. Before, during, and after the ceremony they were so attentive to the needs of my husband and myself and even our parents! Great organization and service with a positive and professional attitude, we feel they went above and beyond. I can't say enough good things and would highly recommend them to family and friends!

  • We were completely blown away by Nicole's catering/events team. Kate Bender helped us curate the perfect menu that accommodated all of our guests dietary restrictions (veg/an, g-free & Halal) that was both delicious and creative. The on-site team made sure we had plenty to eat and drink, and checked-in on me frequently. They set up early and decorated our tables with our centerpieces beautifully. Every detail was perfect and I'm so glad we choose them for our special day.

  • Nicoles really made sure our wedding day was perfect. We worked with Kate and Sarah and I can’t say enough about both of them! They helped us pick out the best menu and worked with the other vendors to make sure the day ran smoothly. They always made us feel relaxed and calm when we were stressed out. They helped to coordinate the whole day and were always available for questions or recommendations. We had so many compliments on the food and have recommended them to all of our friends and family for future events. We’re so thankful to have had them on our wedding day and would highly recommend them to anyone.

  • Our coordinator Kate was excellent with responsiveness, which is why we chose these caterers although the tasting we had left us with mixed feelings about the food. However, to our surprise, Kate did not attend our big day, and the execution of everything we had discussed with her wasn’t quiet as seamless as the planning. The tables were not set wide enough to comfortably dance in between like we wanted, the staff did not make sure we ate the passing hors d'oeuvres while we took photos like I had asked, and they had us cut the cake with our backs towards a half empty room instead of having us stand behind the table or moving the cake cutting to where the guests were. We started late and the service seemed rushed. We ourselves never had dessert, except for the spoonful we fed each other at the cake cutting, and the caterers didn’t give us the left over cake. My bouquet was lost, which may not be their fault, but there was only 60 people at my wedding, all family, so when we loo... Read more

  • I enjoyed my experience with nicoles. The only thing I didn't like is that I couldn't take home the food that I liked. The event coordinator is professional and she talks to you every step of the way.
