  • My biggest concern about having my daughter's wedding at the majestic Midland Theater was the quality of the food. There is not a full kitchen on site, and I couldn't imagine that the food would be as good as it did at our tasting. Olive Events did a wonderful job on the food, and we received so many unsolicited comments on how delicious everything was. Service was professional and unobtrusive. Hooray for Kelsey and her team at Olive Events!

  • Olive Events far surpassed our expectations for our wedding! We had no idea what we wanted, or how we wanted to do it! Olive Events was very responsive during the initial planning, and recommended an amazing menu based on our likes and dislikes! We never even tasted the food before the wedding, we just had confidence in this amazing group of people! They did not disappoint! Probably some of the most amazing food I had ever had! Additionally, I had no idea what was going to happen with anything that was left over, I did not realize that they packaged up the few leftovers that we had! This is probably a standard service, but I felt like it was above and beyond! Our family and friends will be raving about this food for a long, long time! Thank you for making our wedding day amazing!

  • My husband and I really wanted to have bbq at our wedding because so many of our guests were from out of town, and they knocked it out of the park. We were on the fence about late-night snacks and made the decision about three weeks beforehand, and they were able to make it happen. I'm so glad we used Olive.

  • We just had our wedding in KC on June 10th. Olive Catering was one of the best choices we made for our big day! They were very on top of it, EXTREMELY professional team and the food was incredible. I still have people asking me what & who did our catering and that it was some of the best food they've at a wedding. Thank you, Olive!

  • All I have to say is truffle mac and cheese! Olive Events prepared some of the most amazing food for my wedding day. Nichole was so awesome to work with and she designed a menu to fit our budget that truly helped to make our big day wonderful. Maple pecan crusted pork tenderloin with port reduction, truffle mac and cheese, roasted summer vegetables and a spinach, strawberry salad with goat cheese and champagne vinaigrette were the talk of the town. I don't know how many people came up to me and said that this food was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. Besides having amazing food, the Olive staff were so friendly to work with and provided the best service I could ask for. If you want a wedding where people will remember the food and praise you for their invite, then hire Olive, because they won't disappoint.

  • You will not be sorry you booked Olive Events for your special occasion. I have now worked with Olive for three events: our daughter's engagement party, a corporate luncheon, and our daughter and son-in-law's wedding reception dinner. From the beginning, Nicole Hogan and I clicked and we both shared some of the same ideas for food selection, presentation and service. Olive Events knows what they are doing. From our very first tasting for the wedding dinner to the execution on the night of the wedding, it was flawless. Our guests raved about the food. My daughter wanted to serve family style and they made it happen. The courses were beautifully presented on the trays and in the bowls. Our guests loved the family style service. Very unique and a bit more upscale than a buffet. The servers are all professional. I always look at every detail when planning a party or selecting a caterer. Olive not only has great food, they know how to present it and how to serve it. These things are so impo... Read more

  • Food is really important to my husband and I, so we knew that the food catered for our wedding had to be outstanding. With Olive Events, we got everything and more! From the very first tasting of the truffle mac and cheese, we knew they had to cater our wedding. Everything they served was delicious and they are very accommodating if you need to change anything. They were helpful with identifying gluten-free dishes for our guests as well. They also display the food beautifully, which is not something you'd think about, but once you see their set up compared to other caterers, it's no competition. We have heard nothing but good things from our guests about the food! We also had plenty of food for all our guests, as they went through the buffet. The passed hors d'oeuvres were outstanding as well. If you want a memorable dinner at your wedding, Olive Events is the way to go.

  • There is only way to describe Olive Events…. Amazing!!! From working with them on menu options to set up, presentation & quality…everything was simply perfect!!! I was trying to cater to just about everyone out there making sure I had something for everyone, and that is exactly what Olive Events was able to do….give me plenty of options to design the perfect menu!!! It’s a month after my wedding and I still have people coming up asking “ Who catered your wedding??? The food was amazing! So if your looking for a stress free, awesome staff, the perfect menu and amazing food…then look no further than Olive Events Catering!!! My personal favorite was the famous mac and cheese, known as the Cavatappi Pasta, everything they make is simply delicious!

I have been receiving on going compliments about how great the food was. This was my first time planning a wedding. I was hopeful the food would be as good as the tasting. It absolutely was.

  • Deciding who to chose as our caterer was a very imported decision for us. But we are very satisfied that we chose Olive Events. They were very friendly, genuine and not pretentious to work with. We could tell that they had a real love for food and that they cared about the quality. They worked with us to make a menu that exactly fit our personalities, and was very patient to discuss the menu with us many times. Really every aspect of the food was absolutely delicious and presently beautifully. Our guests loved the food. Many guests specifically compliments how good the ancho coffee glazes salmon and Mac n cheese was. The dessert bar and late night snacks were the highlights of the reception. We were so happy to have a box of cookies and cupcakes to have left over to eat at our hotel room that night! Thank you so much Olive Events!

  • We met with Olive Events and did a tasting; we were really happy with it, and discussed the modifications we wanted to make to our proposed menu. One piece of feedback was that we wanted our beef cooked to medium (it was medium rare at the tasting, which we generally like, but worried about guests at our wedding). We also confirmed this several days prior to the wedding over e-mail and it was written in our final contract. We had Olive pass hors d’oeuvres at the cocktail hour. Everything was delicious! The salads were also fresh and delicious with beautiful presentation. The groom and I planned to share a fish and beef dish. The fish was so good! We cut into the beef — and it was RARE. I was very surprised, but assumed it was just our plate. I couldn’t stomach it, but didn’t really care as all the adrenaline of the wedding was preventing much of an appetite anyway. I had the groom check on our families’ tables to check on their beef — … all rare. Most of our family cou... Read more

  • GREAT food and wonderful service for our heavy Hors D'oeuvres reception for 120. We had tasted three other caterers and were just not wowed. I actually took a chance based on several strong recommendations of co-workers of the excellence of Olive Events and booked with sans tasting. I was so pleased that I did. The food and service the day of was wonderful. I did not have to worry about a thing. They were the highest priced option that we considered but it was absolutely worth it. Love that they attempt to use local ingredients as much as possible. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
