Going into our wedding, we had more confidence in PK's than in any of our vendors. Unfortunately, PK's was our worst vendor choice. The food was good, but in insufficient quantities, and they failed to provide the planned bar service or keep to the wedding day timetable. We booked PK's after a great initial tasting with Paul and Elizabeth. They were super responsive to our emails and were reasonable for our budget. We planned a family-style dinner, with a variety of foods being passed at the table. In August, we updated our contract to hire a professional bartender and bar helper. PK's failed to hire a professional bartender. The very nice woman who tried to tend the bar didn't know how to make our cocktail, tap a keg, or keep up with the line of guests. Our friends helped pour wine and work the keg. PK's was running late, so we stalled for 15-20 minutes before sitting down, but the food was still noticeably delayed. Also, the bar didn't open in the tent. When we asked Elizabeth to get the bar open, she asked, "Do you want us to get the bar open or serve the food?" This was not a choice we should have had to make, since we had paid for bar service all night. It was deeply embarrassing to have the bar closed for an hour during our reception and a long wait for dinner. It was painfully embarrassing that there was not enough food. One table got six crab cakes for seven people. There was plenty of was pork loin, but that didn't help our vegetarians, who didn't get enough to eat. We sat there helpless and furious. When we asked for a partial refund, PK's blamed first our wedding coordinator and then a pre-wedding car accident. We eventually got $225 back for the bartender and an offer for a catered dinner for four, but we were not interested. We would have appreciated recognition of what went wrong, especially if they really did have a car accident, instead of denying there were significant problems on our wedding day.

PK’s Kitchen catered my wedding this past weekend. I can’t say enough great things about my experience with Paul, Elizabeth and their team. They went above and beyond all our expectations though out the whole process all the way through our amazing wedding! They created specialized cocktails and appetizers for our cocktail hour and delicious food for our reception. We feel truly blessed to have found PK’s Kitchen and will be referring them to all our friends and family who need catering. We are already planning on having Chef Paul do a personal chef dinner for our 1st anniversary!

The food was amazing, Paul and his wife Elizabeth were an absolute joy! After our tasting we booked immediately. They told us what we would expect on our wedding day and it was nothing less than perfect. Chef Paul cares about his food and it shows. They told us that they would personally be there for our wedding day to make sure everything went smooth, and that they only book one event that day as to make sure we have their full attention. I highly recommend PK’S Kitchen to everyone.
