Kevin from Crave Catering went beyond our expectations. He catered our sons Bar Mitzvah and we were thrilled with how it went. Planning anything during Covid can be overwhelming and he put us at ease from the beginning. At the actual event having Kevin there was almost like having a friendly face helping throughout every part of the event. Everyone loved the food and I’ve had at least 5 people ask for his info. The chicken and the steak were absolutely delicious as well as everything else especially the slider appetizers. If your considering booking him think no more. You won’t regret it!

Our experience with Kevin and crave catering was nothing less than perfection. He catered my daughter's bat-mitzvah and due to covid we had to change many things many times he just rolled with the punches like it was nothing. The food was fantastic everybody raved about it especially the cheeseburger sliders. We will definitely be using crave catering again.

RAVE FOR CRAVE Crave Catering was responsible for creating a wonderful menu for our Wedding Reception 11/07/20220. The menu: Asian Beef Skewers; Thai Curry Chicken Salad Lettuce Cups; Wild Mushroom Arrancini ( fried Risotto balls); Angus Beef Sliders; Strawberries w/ Goat Cheese & Pistachios; Seared Lamb Chops w/ Balsamic Glaze. The food was plentiful, beautifully presented and FABULOUS! So many of our guests raved about the food as they went back for seconds. Chef Kevin was a delight to work with. Not only did he create a lovely menu, he accommodated for my food allergies. He and his assistant, Pheobe, were on time, polite, very efficient and professional. They made it so the only thing we had to focus on was visiting with our guests. They were also COVID aware and prepared with masks and hand coverings. Choosing Crave Catering will not disappoint!

Crave Catering Co has been nothing but amazing for my fiancé & I. We haven’t even had our wedding yet, but the responsiveness so far has been astounding. They’ve replied to my emails in the SAME day, & make it so easy to adjust things. Definitely recommend!

We LOVED working with Crave Catering! We hired Kevin for a Bat Mitzvah after finding him randomly online. He was one of the first to respond to us and after meeting with our family came up with a menu to suit our needs in every way. He was always great about responding to our many questions, requests and emails, and never left us wondering. Once Covid hit we spent months trying to figure out what to do. Through that process we really scrambled to figure it out and Kevin was so flexible and accommodating! Once we decided on having a smaller event at our home we worked together to modify the menu to fit the space and the outcome was excellent!!! The food was wonderful, and Kevin and his staff so professional and personal that our guests enjoyed spending time with them as well! We appreciate everything they did to make this ever changing event as delicious as it could be and look forward to the next time we have an event requiring a caterer so we can hire them again!!!!
