Our Wedding was on the most romantic day of the year. And Ida's Kitchen helped make it the perfect day.
I had gone on line looking for caterers serving the York Region area and Ida's website came up. I spent some time looking at all the information that was available on her site. It was so extensive! There was no other caterer that gave me so much information to help me make up my mind. And then when I called I spoke with Ida herself. She was so sweet that I knew right then that I had found my caterer. We went over all the details of what I needed for our wedding that would be held in our home. The estimate was exactly what I was hoping for in a price and the deal was settled.
While we were getting married at home I didn't want to have to worry about any of the logistics. And Ida made sure that was the case. They brought the tables, chairs, linens, plates, cutlery, glasses and so on. And when the event was done, they took it all away. Not one dish to wash!
And the food! People are still talking about the Beef Tenderloin! How was it possible that a caterer was able to serve a dish that melted in your mouth!
We started the event with champagne, strawberries and chocolate. After the ceremony, Ida had three servers on site serving a selection of five hors d'hoerves. It was followed by a three-course plated dinner for 30 guests that was made by the two wonderful cooks who took over my kitchen. And for dessert there was a delicious selection of Dufflet's pastries set out on each table while we were served tea and coffee. And did I mention the amazing bartender who was a wonderful idea of Ida's. We didn't even have to pour our own drinks. I can't say enough about Ida and her company. If you need catering, then consider Ida's Catering. You won't be disappointed!!!
We certainly lucked in when we searched online for a local caterer and discovered Ida's kitchen. We wanted to celebrate a milestone birthday this August at our home and not be worried about preparing , serving and cleaning up afterward, so that we could focus on our guests and the celebration. The food was amazing, our chef and server were beyond helpful and competent. More about the food ... Ida gave us excellent advice and we had a tasting menu of 12 different dishes which would satisfy any and all dietary issues , needs and preferences. The quality, taste and presentation was absolutely all that we hoped for and the caring, attentive , respectful and unobtrusive service capped off a truly memorable day. Months later, several of our friends still remark upon how much they enjoyed the food on that occasion.
Ida's Kitchen has catered a number of events for us over the years, the latest being an 80th birthday party. We know we can count on delicious food delivered/served on time and as ordered. Both Ida and her husband, Michael, are personable, professionals who make every effort to ensure that customers are satisfied. They genuinely care that your event is a success and take pride in what they do, making Ida's Kitchen a real asset in Richmond Hill.
On behalf of everyone who attended and enjoyed our party, Thank You! The food was delicious and exactly what I’d hoped for, and the chef and server were simply amazing – very professional and they helped take care of every little detail and went above and beyond. I received all sorts of positive feedback from the guests about the food and service and gave your name to several people.
Thanks for helping to make our evening great!
Ida's Kitchen cater our wedding on July 11th 2015 and did a remarkable job. Unlike other caterers, when I asked for a quote she broke down all the costs, including servers and rentals.
Her food is outstanding! The salmon and morrocan chicken were out of this world as were the amazing salads. The mini grill cheese with tomato bisque was also a hit.
Ida was so helpful in the planning process, easy to get a hold of and extremely accommodating to our needs as well as budget. The staff was super friendly and helpful as well. Our guests, many whom are foodie types raved about the meal.
You can't go wrong with hiring Ida's Kitchen for your next event.
Ida catered my hubby's 50th birthday party over the weekend, and helped to make this an extra special event. She and her partner were very friendly and helpful in helping us set up the food, and giving good advice on how to serve it. The food was delicious and suited all the various needs of our guests. Everything arrived fresh and on time and exceeded mine and our guest's expectations. I would definitely ask Ida to cater any future events we might have.
Ida and her staff catered our party over the weekend.
From the time I met her I felt comfortable with her. As I had little knowledge at preparing for a reception. Ida did it all for me. She thought of things I never thought off.
Obviously she has a lot of experience. I rented hall,tables and chairs Ida and her staff did the rest. I had no worries. Even cleaning up afterwards.
The food was excellent also mentioned by my Guests. Good presentation. Hors D'oeuvres terrific and lots of them. She did two special plates without garlic for friends allergic to it.
Thank you Ida and the wonderful staff for making it a great time without stress.
Ida recently catered an event for our family. The food Ida provides suits all palates. Her menu is widely varied and and dishes can be easily modified to meet your catering needs. Ida catered our event on very short notice. She was courteous and professional and most importantly flexible. The food and was wonderful and our guests were impressed with the taste and presentation. Although I would have loved to take the credit for all the platters, (she even plated some homemade treats for me!), I happily gave Ida’s information along with my highest recommendation. Thank you for all your hard work, Ida!!! Stress-free catering at its best.
I would highly highly recommend Ida's Kitchen for any catering needs you have. The food was phenomenal and she was just a pleasure to work with. She has many years experience and the wait staff she works with was outstanding !!!!
Ida catered our wedding event, which actually consisted of two events (one, full buffet-style dinner family ceremony and one cocktail-style party for our friends). Prior to both events Ida was sure to confirm every last tiny detail with us including rentals, staff hours, timing of courses, etc. We were nothing but confident that everything would turn out fantastic the day of. And it did. Food was delicious, staff members were friendly and professional, and both evenings ran exactly according to schedule, smoothly and without issues.
Thank you Ida and your entire team for making our wedding celebrations a true success and occasions we'll remember forever.
