Joe and the staff at LCI Caterers were wonderful to work with from start to finish. Joe helped us create a menu our guests would love by providing us with a food tasting and making great recommendations. (Tip- attend the food tasting on an empty stomach... you’ll want to taste everything!) Our menu was a mix of both American and Latin dishes....Joe reassured me that the Latin dishes would taste authentic, and he was right! Joe and his staff were available by email/phone and always responded quickly. After our wedding, the guests raved about the food! All the servers were so friendly and the food was delicious! Special shout out to our personal server, Lisa... she was so sweet and attentive with us throughout the evening. The bartenders were also engaging and friendly. The evening flowed nicely and everything was perfect. We highly recommend LCI Caterers and hope to use them again in the future.
Music and food were definitely a priority for our wedding and Joe surpassed any expectation we had in regards to the food and open bar. The process of setting up at the venue was seamless, the food was to die for and the open bar was a success. Joe and his son went above and beyond to make my wife and I happy in every sense of the word. They are so incredibly thoughtful and they truly care about the customer service they are providing. You can taste the passion they have through their incredible food. Everything was so delicious, and everyone at the venue had only great things to say. A text from one of my bridespeople:
"Please save the caterers number. Maybe someday, someone will want to marry me and I can look forward to that chicken again :)"
We had the angel hair pasta - SO GOOD.
Chimichurri steak - AMAZING.
Chicken and chorizo - WOW.
Slow roasted pernil asado - LORD JESUS!
Arroz moro and vegetables - JUST FAB.
Open Bar - A1.
You guys truly made an impact. Thank you for your hard work and dedication!
We could not be happier with LCI Caterers, we used them for our wedding in Brooklyn. Joe's food was incredible (received so many compliments, some saying it was the best wedding food they've ever had!) and he and his team were so helpful in getting things ready day of. We were a little disorganized and Joe jumped in at every chance he could to lend a hand, even helping us when we got locked out of one of the bride/groom suites. He helped with some last minute cake decorating adjustments, and probably did so many more things day of I (the bride) don't even know about. The whole team was smiling, helping, and celebrating with us the entire event. Susan was amazing with all my questions (of which there were many) leading up the wedding, answered in the speediest fashion every time, and was so informative. Getting to get to know Joe and Susan during the tasting was so fun and just made us all the more excited about the day. What a wonderful team!! So many things come included with the price, hors d'oeuvres, linens, glassware.. which is so hard to find! Could not recommend them highly enough.
Joe and his team are AMAZING! We had an 80-people wedding and Joe’s son was there as the main chef. When we did the food tasting, the food was so good, especially the homemade pasta, simply incredible. All of our guests love the food at the event.
And they are super professional. We chose LCI because they were on the venue’s recommended list. Everything went super smoothly, the building manager knows them, and they know the venue inside out. We didn’t have a wedding planner or coordinator since we had a really simple schedule. It turns out we don’t need one! LCI took care of everything, the setup, the breakdown, etc.
I also want to mention that they put down some of the appetizers for the bride and groom at the main table at the beginning of the night because we were just too busy greeting people and had no time to eat food. That was such a thoughtful touch. We are so thankful for Joe and his team!
I was an extremely nervous bride who had no idea what I was in for with booking a venue that needed all vendors to be brought in separate. Joe and Susanne made every step of the way comfortable, enjoyable and overall, an extremely positive experience. They worked with me on my budget and changes and were there to support. Not to mention every single person complimented the food to me about how delicious it was. I cannot recommend this family business more!!! You will be in AWESOME hands!!
LCI Caterers helped make our wedding feel special. Susanne helped organize the cocktail hour and reception and they turned out perfect. We were busy going around and talking to guests at our reception, but the staff made sure we both got a plate with everything so we wouldn't miss out on the delicious food. Their creamy sun-dried tomato pasta was a massive hit. We were checked-in on frequently by the chef to make sure we weren't too stressed, and I appreciated that a lot. I highly recommend LCI Caterers for their professionalism, wonderful service, and for their amazing food.
We used Joe and the LCI team for our wedding a couple weeks ago. We were so happy with them from start to finish. They had so many options, they let us try so much at our tasting, they were fairly priced, they were professional and incredibly helpful. My husband and some of his family members have Celiac disease, and they were able to accommodate us very easily - providing many gluten free options. We ended up providing our own alcohol and using LCI’s soda bar option, and their bartenders served our alcohol, including two custom cocktails. They assisted us with all our additional table rentals, and everything went very smoothly day-of thanks to them and their staff. Susanne, who helped us with all the admin work, was without a doubt the most responsive vendor we worked with for everything wedding related, which was incredibly helpful! We would recommend them to anyone getting married in the New York area.
We couldn't have more great things to say about Joe and LCI Caterers. We had the pleasure of chatting with Susanne in the planning stages and she was incredibly helpful, communicative and friendly. At our tasting, we felt like we were sitting down with good friends and they made great suggestions - not only to the food itself but the timeline, alcohol and general run of show. On the actual day of the wedding, Joe himself showed up several hours early and his team was ON it. We got married at the Greenpoint Loft and they clearly have this all down to a science. They made sure to keep myself and my husband's glasses full the entire time and brought us our meals and made sure we eat (which was much appreciated!). Thank you so much, Joe, Susanne and the entire LCI team!
When our original wedding caterer canceled less than 6 months shy of our wedding, we were stressed to find a replacement. Where would we find the type of cuisine we were hoping for? Luckily we found LCI caterers and our hopes and ideas of what we'd like for our wedding were met and exceeded! Joe and his team at LCI caterers were incredible from start to finish. We eagerly met him and his team for a tasting in the summer before our wedding and his food completely blew us away! His options to choose from were vast and his expertise was impressive. Susanne helped us every step of the way, answering questions, taking our calls and easing our fears whenever they arose. Not only did they cater, but they helped us with all our rentals and helped us create the wedding of our dreams. The tables were gorgeous and they set up everything for our venue perfectly. Our guests are still talking about the wedding and the delicious food. If you're thinking about hiring LCI for your event, don't hesitate!
Everyone at LCI caterers are amazing. They catered our wedding last month and we could not be happier. The planning process was smooth, seamless, and stress-free (if you can believe that for a wedding). They really helped make the process so easy. We really enjoyed working with Susanne, Joe, his son, and all his staff. They were so kind and attentive throughout the wedding, making sure my husband and I had our food and constantly checked in with us. It was a magical night thanks to them. Our guests enjoyed the food and the selection of appetizers, entrees, desserts, and drinks. I would love to work with them for any other events I plan to have in the future. We are so grateful and will always keep them in mind!
LCI was AMAZING from beginning to end. Susanne was so responsive to every question and concern we had throughout the process. Joe went above and beyond to accommodate any request we had. The food was delicious and the staff was great!!! They helped with the setup and teardown of the reception which was a huge help. Susanne and Joe were such a pleasure to work with. If you are looking for an affordable caterer with amazing quality and service then look no further than LCI.
Joe and Susanne are absolutely awesome. Joe's able to cook a variety of cuisines so we were able to have South Asian, American, and French dishes. Everyone loved the food! Unfortunately, we were way too pumped to eat at the wedding but luckily we had an amazing tasting session with Joe. We left so full and with a ton of leftovers, and excited for our guests to have the same experience.
LCI staff at the event were very friendly. Delicious food, quality service and great vibes all around!!! Also, during the process, I had a million questions and every time I emailed Susanne, she would respond quickly and answered every single one of my questions. The team is absolutely fantastic. We're glad we hired them!!
Joe, Susanne and the whole staff at LCI are truly great people, providing truly great service. We had LCI cater our wedding reception for food, drinks, and staff servicing - they made the day easy all the way from first contacts to tasting to day-of execution. Highly recommend their teams to those seeking impressive food at a great value
Hire Joe Cutulo! I hired Joe for my wedding and it was probably the best decision I made. After my wedding was rescheduled 3 times due to the pandemic, we decided to hold our reception for 100 people in our yard. I was skeptical that any caterer would be able to pull off an elegant affair under the circumstances. JOE DID! Not only did Joe work with me every step of the way but he went above and beyond to provide advice, suggestions, and support. He took the time to come out to see the very small space and reassured me that not only would everything work out, he would see to it personally. He is an excellent chef and goes out of his way to make your day perfect, well above and beyond the typical responsibilities of a caterer. I myself tend to micro manage so giving up the reigns for this event was hard. Well, I could not have put my trust in a better man! He is very organized, trustworthy, honest, professional, and hard working. Even with an impending hurricane, Joe and team went out of their way to help out in any way they could. My guests called me up after the event to let me know how amazing the food and catering staff were during the wedding. I would recommend LCInc Catering for any event. You get so much more than just amazing food. Thanks Joe and staff!
Where do I even start with Joe and his team...They are absolutely hands on with EVERYTHING. We hosted a buffet style served dinner for our guests who til this day can’t stop talking about how delicious everything was. We’re a mixed family of Puerto Rican’s and Dominicans’, so to us it was imperative to have Spanish food served on the day of our wedding. To have Joe tell us he could deliver the best “Maduros” (sweet plantains) was a relief. Everything tasted as if my mom would’ve made it at home. The food was piping hot, fresh and in abundance. Not only was our dinner everything we wanted and more, to top it off, we had a full blown desert bar equipped a spread of fresh fruits, a wide selection of Italian cookies and cannolis’ (which were my mother’s favorite part) lol He and his staff were such a pleasure to work with especially during the planning process as my family and I had received news that my father had been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, just a few months before our wedding. They made every interaction after that much more than just business. They made it almost like a break a way from the stress and helped me get this done just as we planned it. I’d recommend them in a heart beat because they’re so much more than just amazing food and service. They’re a whole lot of heart.
Joe and his team were phenomenal! I had so many questions and not only were they answered, I got recommendations that saved me financially. They really treat you like family and the food - THE FOOD - is to die for. Joe really knows what goes together to please the pallet of very picky guests. My mom was light headed before walking me down the aisle so someone from the team personally brought her hors d'oeuvres to make her feel better. My next big event will HAVE TO be catered by Joe/LCI.
My wife and I could not be happier with the quality of service provided by Joe, Susanne and the rest of the LCI team. The food was delicious and everyone who attended our wedding could not stop raving about how good it was. They even went as far as saying they have never attended a wedding in which the food was delicious. Joe took his time with us when he invited us for a tasting and made recommendations to transform our menu from traditional to a different ordinary menu which you do not typically see at weddings. If we are ever in a situation in which we need to cater to a large group of people again I will not hesitate to call LCI to hire them for their services. They went above and beyond what was expected from them. Thank you very much JOE AND Co
My now husband and I were looking for a good caterer that would please our picky parents, appeal to both our cultures (My husband is Mexican and I am Dominican) as well as our American co-workers and friends. We looked at several caterers but when we met with Joe we knew he was the one! The tasting was everything we wanted and more and Joe seemed super knowledgeable and had experience with our venue (26 Bridge) everything we could want…. He helped take our vision and create a menu that was beyond all our expectations including All our favorite things!! And kept us within our budget which we both thought would be impossible to do, but it’s Joe, so of course he makes it happen. Joe is an amazing caterer but he was so much more than that for us! Joe was always available to me over the phone or via email no matter the time and no matter how anxious I got (and trust me I am a worrier!) he always had a solution!! Joe even spoke to me on his way to his vacation because we were a month away from our wedding and he wanted to make sure I was okay with the menu. Joe was able to fix problems that even my coordinator said “there is nothing you can do”… Joe would come in and say “we can fix that!” Two days before the wedding our bartenders canceled on us!!! One call to Joe and problem fixed!! We needed more tables last minute… Joe fixed that! And The Food!!! Delicious!!! All our guests raved and complimented us on the food and everyone left full and happy; and remember this our picky family, and everyone was happy!! Everything that my hubby and I wanted for our special day. But Joe’s amazingness does not end there, after the wedding, Joe heard that with all the running around we did not get to taste everything, and he offered to cook for us so that we could taste what we had missed at the wedding …. Who Does That? Joe Does!!!
If you want a vendor that goes above and beyond that does not stop at just food… and truly cares about the success of your big day, please, please, please pick Joe! No one else will do!!
LCI caterers did an amazing job! Joe is super responsive and their prices are very reasonable. Though I didn't ask him to provide wine, he ran out mid reception to buy more white after we ran out! Staff was amazing - highly recommend!
Joseph is a Godsend. I am from a foreign country and my husband is American, so having to go through the wedding process twice, in two different countries, was not only daunting, but also weighed heavily on our pockets. We decided on our wedding venue first, and Joe's company was listed as one of the preferred caterers that the venue enjoys working with. I was happy and wary at the same time with how pocket-friendly Joe's services were compared to other wedding caterers. But after reading all the shining reviews the company has on various sites, we decided to give Joe a call. Joe was so friendly and easy to talk to over the phone, and very very knowledgeable and experienced. We instantly knew that we were in good hands. To be really honest, I was still nervous even after finalizing the menu as my parents were traditional and very picky eaters, but it turned out that I did not have to worry at all. Everyone enjoyed the food immensely, and Joe's staff was incredibly nice and helpful, even Joe himself was there to make sure everything ran extra smoothly. We owe him and his team a giant thank-you for such an amazing night. Definitely highly recommended!
There aren't enough praises I can give to really exemplify how amazing Joe and his LCI caterers are--especially after reading these reviews, it's clear this was not a one-time deal, they are just top-notch! In searching for a caterer for our wedding, I came across his company as I was specifically looking up food stations. It seemed like he could do exactly what we wanted (which could seem very random since my husband and I are both foodies) but he was also willing to give so many suggestions and had great ideas. His menu is SOOO flexible, if you want anything different from what is listed, all you have to do is ask. Not that I can pick JUST ONE impressive thing, but I have to say the way Joe took our idea for Mexican jello and ran with it was superb. He made sure each layer had a wonderful surprise and the presentation was enticing, but then again he did this for everything, people are still raving about the food. Joe and his crew were worth every single penny we spent; they made sure that EVERYTHING was taken care of and Joe, personally, made sure we were fed and treated right--he's the best! We are already fantasizing about when we use LCI again!!
