Artichoke and Company was absolutely wonderful! Dara (one of the owners) went out of her way in every way possible to make our wedding day perfect. Since I was out of town, Dara was my contact person to help me out when in need. She picked up our flowers, took flowers where we got our cake made, dropped flowers off at our hotel, delivered our cake, set up all of our personal decor at our venue, and of course had all of our food set up for our guests.

Artichoke and Company's staff was extremely professional and helpful. All of our guests felt well taken care of and full by the end if the wedding. The food was absolutely delicious! They met food allergy needs for my guests as well.

I would highly recommend Artichoke and Company for any event you may have! :)

Hiring Artichoke & Co. to cater our wedding was one of the best decisions we made throughout our entire wedding planning. From start to finish, they were professional, courteous and asked us crucial questions that we had not even considered before.

We began working with them a year before the wedding. The initial tasting was excellent. My groom and I are vegetarians and the chef gave us tons of delicious veggie ideas and options that would appeal to our meat eating guests. They helped us walk through the courses, drink options all while keeping in mind our budget. We were really appreciated them working within our budget. Dara was very honest and helpful in helping us save money. She was straightforward about what we truly needed and didn't need to make the wedding great.

We got married in Florida but live in Washington, DC and had no issues whatsoever working with them via phone and email. They were incredibly responsive to all of our questions during our year of planning, responding to emails within 24 hrs at most.

Dara's help on the wedding day itself was invaluable. She helped everything flow very smoothly, coordinating not only the catering aspects but all of the details that made our ceremony and reception so flawless. The staff was and bartender were excellent as well: efficient, friendly and professional.

We could not recommend Artichoke & Co. enough. To this day our guests rave about the food, with many saying they would become vegetarians if they could eat our wedding food everyday. Thank you Artichoke for making our dream wedding happen!

Artichoke and Company provided catering services for my wedding recently, and as an out of town bride, it was the best decision I made. Dara went above and beyond to help me plan from afar, and was always quick to respond to my emails and questions. Dara is a true gem in her industry. When it rained on the day of our outdoor wedding, she saved my day by being very flexible, calm, helpful, and helped me move our reception indoors. She went above her duties 100%, transported my decorations, and made everything look beautiful. You would never have known it was a last minute change. The food was great, the staff was super, and the service overall was awesome. I can't say enough good things about Dara and this catering business!

While some other caterers promissed to call back ( and didn't ( we are in FL)), Dara the owner herself answered the phone and reacted immediatelly. Alone this kind of service is outstanding here in this area. The second surprise was the stuff and the chef. They showed in time and had everything ! The service personal was very friendly and active. As the father of the bride, I felt so relaxed when I noticed that nobody had empty glasses. And the food: instead of premanufactured standart hors d'oevres they prepared everything fresh in our open kitchen. The chef not only prepared wonderful dishes, but entertained tasteful and intelligent while he was cooking.
When they had left the house everything was cleaned and none of our guests felt disturbed while they put their stuff together. Needless to say that this crew got standing ovations when they said good bye.
I can highly recommend this nice people. The know how do make a wedding a very special way.

As soon as we met Dara, at the venue our daughter and her fiancee had selected, we knew they had chosen the perfect person to entrust with the plans for their wedding reception. From the start she provided incredible menu options, including special requests for lactose and glutten free main course, appetizers and desserts for some of the guests. Her suggestions were always presented as options, not "must do". She was totally dedicated to giving us her undivided attention and care, making the decision making process fun and relaxed. The amount of time and energy Dara and her staff dedicated to make this such special event for all of us was incredible. The day of the reception Dara and her crew were all there making sure that everything was as flawless and beautiful as we could ever dream. Thank you to Artichoke and Co, Dara, Bryan and all the team for your efforts. Regards, Leonor Macchi, Naples Florida
