  • KIC was outstanding. The food was not only very well prepared but very good quality and exquisitely presented. They set the tables and even added runners at no extra cost. They worked very hard to ensure that everything was perfect for my daughter's wedding. This is the first time I have to organize a wedding reception and dinner and I relied on Javier and his team to make sure the details were taken care of. Excellent value and service! Thank you for making such effort and ensuring this was an amazing night for all of us.

    Great Service. Fabulous Food.
  • My wife and I couldn't have asked for a better experience with a catering company. This was our first event planned together and key ingredients made it a breeze. From the first meeting to the day of the wedding everything went smoothly and according to plan. We were very happy to have sampled the food before the event and we're pleased with all the choices and quality of the food we selected. Key ingredients also provided us a great selection of tablecloths and decoration for a reasonable price. Their staff was very respectful and friendly they did a great job setting everything up in a very short period of time. All in all it was a great job done at a fair price.

    Great service from beginning to end
  • Key Ingredients did the catering for my son's wedding. Not only was the food delicious, but Carla and Javier are so accommodating and easy to work with! In the last couple of weeks we decided to change from buffet style to family style, I called Carla and no problem. Two days before the wedding the bride and groom decided that they would like to offer lemonade to the guests at the ceremony, again I called Carla and again no problem plus no additional charge. They even took food to the bride and groom before the wedding during the long photo shoot with the photographer. I would use them again in a minute! Thanks for everything Carla and Javier.

    Excellent Quality of Food and Very Professional
  • Five years ago, before Javier started Key Ingredients Catering, he created a beautiful, wonderful, personalized, and very delicious meal for my daughter's wedding reception. We have recommended him many times since. We recently had the pleasure of attending a 50th wedding anniversary dinner that his company catered. We thoroughly enjoyed the elegant presentation and the delicious food, along with other guests we talked to. When we spoke to Javier, we were thrilled to learn that he had started Key Ingredients Catering, not long after our daughter's wedding. We will gladly continue to recommend his services.

    It has been our pleasure to attend two events catered by this company.
  • Key Ingredients did a great job, supporting my 70th Birthday celebration. After getting bids from four companies, we selected Key Ingredients because of their proposed menu and the fact that they provided comprehensive service -- including set-up, service and clean-up. We were not disappointed. They continued to coordinate with us for the several days leading up to the event, ensuring that all our selections were exactly what we wanted. There were on-time and provided everything we expected. The staff and servers were exceptionally friendly and professional. The food was fabulous and plentiful. I strongly recommend you use their services for your special events -- I know we will!

We are delighted to say that they have also brought in the same staff/servers every year, which reflects on their good skills to maintain their own employees.

  • Javier was great to work with and very accommodating for our dinner party. His Seafood Paella was the hit of our dinner which received compliments from everyone. The food was delicious and was served in a huge authentic paella pan. We are using Key Ingredients Catering for a second year in a row. His entire dinner was consistently delicious with beautiful presentation at another event we attended recently. Vicente was a fabulous server. He arrived early and immediately jumped-in and helped me prepare appetizers and food for the party. He was very creative and artistic with the presentation. He made himself at home in my kitchen so we worked very well together. Vicente took care of everything which enabled me to relax and enjoy the party! I highly recommend Key Ingredients Catering!

  • The event was a memorial gathering, and everyone noticed and complimented the outstanding service and delicious food provided by Key Ingredients. The staff was invisible and very attentive at the same time, refilling glasses and clearing dishes as needed.

NASA had the privilege of working with them for a whole week of lunch's and dinner's being catered in, and the participants rave about their customer service and how much they love the taste of their food! They are flexible and creative, with presentations to knock your socks off. I absolutely recommend hiring them for your next event, you will enjoy every minute working with them!
