what they say

PRIVATE PARTY – June 2017

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for a truly excellent job. Cormac and crew were so professional, efficient, engaging and friendly, and the food was simply delicious and beautifully presented. My Mum had a lovely birthday celebration and much of that was down to the fabulous caterers on the night! Many of our guests were asking who the caterers were, so I hope you get some more business – we would certainly use Naomi’s Kitchen again in the future. Many thanks for organising the event. It was a pleasure doing business with you.

PRIVATE WEDDING – March 2017

Thank you SO MUCH for making our wedding day even more memorable! Our guests could not stop talking about how amazing both the food and service were! It is hard to believe that the restaurant quality food you provided came from a temporary kitchen configured in the basement of a medieval castle. Your staff were so friendly and attentive, especially Cormac, who was a godsend! You exceeded our expectations with a perfect meal and we are grateful to have worked with you!!

PRIVATE PARTY – December 2016

Naomi’s Kitchen are a pleasure to work with and made it so easy for us to throw an event in Dublin as we returned there from Chicago for Christmas. Planning an event is difficult enough at any point but becomes quite stressful when you are 4000 miles away – Julie and the team made it easy and took all the stress away – the menu was fantastic and the staff were even better. I would highly recommend Naomi’s Kitchen to anyone looking for a caterer.

PRIVATE WEDDING – 150 guests – December 2016

I really want to thank Angi and all the team from Naomi’s Kitchen for such a fantastic job they did. They helped to make our day very special, and for that we say “Thank You’ so much.

The quality of the food was just super. Everyone was talking about it. “Fab Food” was what I heard from all the wedding guests!

As well as the quality of the food was the quality of the service. It was quite an amazing experience for us to go from meeting Angi & Naomi to discuss the plan and then seeing it executed on the day. (I admit I was a bit of a Nervous Nellie) . To see it all coming together, seamlessly, was just amazing and a great credit to them.

The speed and efficiency of their work and the smoothness with which everything happened was really fantastic. I didn’t need to have have any nerves!! Angi, Naomi and the team are great.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

Naomi Shipley

Hi Angi

Please excuse the very tardy email but I have been meaning to get in touch to say a big thank you from Mark and I for everything on our wedding day at Clonwilliam at the end of October.

We were absolutely thrilled with the food and service on the day and just wanted to let you know how grateful we were for all your help in the lead up to and during our big day! We have received so many lovely messages from our guests who were also blown away by the food and service from Naomi’s Kitchen. I can’t thank you enough, you did such a super job at co-ordinating everything and making it run so efficiently and smoothly for us!

Many thanks again to you and all the team at NK for everything!

Kind regards,

Hayley & Mark

PRIVATE DINNER PARTY – October 2016

Thank you for a wonderful evening on Saturday 1st Oct. It was the first time that I had someone into my house to prepare and serve a meal. Angi and Phil were fantastic and made us feel so comfortable. Our guests really enjoyed the experience and it was great to watch Phil in action. I am sure my kitchen was cleaner after the team finished polishing all my crockery! I would definitely consider getting Naomi’s Kitchen to cater again and have passed on your details to our friends. Thank you guys!

STORE RELAUNCH –  August 2016

Naomi’s Kitchen catered our relaunch event at Dance World Ranelagh, the service was definitely en pointe! Special mention to Julie and Angi who were so helpful throughout the process. Their experience and attention to detail made the event seamless. Most importantly, the canapes were delicious and our guests were very impressed by the presentation! I would definitely recommend Naomi’s Kitchen to anyone looking to cater events.

PRIVATE WEDDING  – 180 guests – August 2016

Hi Angi / Naomi,

Hope you are both keeping well.

We’re back to work and reality today!

We just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you so much for everything you did in the run up to and on the day of our wedding.

Everything was perfect.

The food and the service were impeccable, even when timings were delayed and things were a bit crazy with the speeches in the barn!

You handled it all so professionally.

You have a fantastically friendly team there and all with a great attitude to go with it.

All our guests were commenting on how exceptionally good the food (in particular the fillet of beef) was so please do pass our sincerest of thanks and compliments to the chef.

We’ll be recommending you to everyone and praising you highly, you deserve it!

Thanks again and hopefully we’ll cross paths again in the future.

Regards,

Orla & Will

 

PRIVATE 70th BIRTHDAY PARTY  – October 2015

Dear Naomi and team, 

I wish to thank you all most sincerely for the wonderful job you did in catering for my husband’s 70th Birthday celebration on Saturday. From the first phone call I made to you, until Phil and Ciara left on Saturday evening. I experienced nothing but professionalism, courtesy, efficiency and care from you all. 

Angi did a great job in suggesting the menu. Phil and Ciara were amazing on Saturday – the food was sensational and both of them worked so hard and so courteously to ensure a brilliant night. Everyone present commented on how great they were. 

Thanks a million again for ensuring the success of the evening and most of all the personal touch which made me feel and know you really cared. 

I wish you all continued success. 

Kindest regards and best wishes, 

Gerardine Lee, Blackrock 

 

CORPORATE TEAM EVENT – October 2015

 Dear Naomi,

I would like to thank you for the fantastic evening we enjoyed last week. Your team interacted so well with our team from Oriflame and everyone commented on the friendliness, sense of fun and professionalism which made the evening such a success.

The menu worked well and the end product was of a high standard. The preparation carried out beforehand was very apparent as the evening’s activities flowed seamlessly. Perhaps the concept we used might inspire you to offer it as a team building event within your portfolio for the future!

Please convey my sincere appreciation to everyone involved, and in particular to Angi who listened, understood our brief and was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout.

I look forward to our next event and to working with you all again.

Warmest regards,
Mary Lord; Senior Vice President, Oriflame Research and Development Ltd

 

PRIVATE WEDDING FOR 130 GUESTS – June 2015

Dear Naomi, 

Thank you so much for everything you did for us on our Wedding day in Clonwilliam in June and in the lead up – you truly are the most fabulous caterer and the food was simply to die for – everyone is still talking about it. 

All your staff were fantastic – from your chef on the night of the tasting to our brilliant server on the day itself – everyone made it such a fun and personal experience. 

Special thanks for the lovely touch of the ‘campbells soup’ tins during the canapes reception – so personal and thoughtful – how gorgeous is this photo?  Presentation is just amazing! 

Please accept this gift as a small token of our appreciation – we both agree that ‘Naomi’s Kitchen’ dish should be added as #1001!

We really hope we will seen you again soon, that you and little Koko are keeping well and that it was a summer of successful Weddings in Clonwilliam house. Hopefully we can keep in touch.

PRIVATE WEDDING FOR 120 GUESTS – September 2015

Hi
Just a quick note to say thanks so much for the 25th in Clonwilliam (don’t know when I’ll get organised enough to send thank you cards!).The food was amazing and people are still talking about it. Raving about the beef and the Aubergine was a hit too. The service also was so organised and I was thrilled with how it went. From my waitressing days I always appreciate really good service and this was impeccable. Also the bridal canapé selection was such a lovely touch, thank you. Apologies if we held up kick off in the barn – we were tramping through the back field with the photographer, as you do!

Really looking for an excuse now to have you guys cater something for us in the future J I’m planning on starting a Clonwilliam fund for our 5 year anniversary (although not sure Barry is on board with this idea!) so maybe we can do it all over again ;)

Thanks again
Best wishes,

Aoife MacLochlainn & Barry O’ Shea

A short note to say ‘thank you’! The food on our Wedding day was simply sublime.

PRIVATE CHRISTENING – August 2015

”Thank you so much for helping us give Elena a very special day on Sunday. Firstly, the professionalism of your staff is second to none. Ailbhe and Megan were fantastic, courteous, helpful, friendly and I was so glad they were there, the day would not have been the same without them. The food was excellent. Two words that I heard many times were ‘the lamb’, everyone raved about the lamb and it was delicious. The salmon also got rave reviews. Everything was beautifully presented which made it all the more inviting. I would 100% recommend Naomi’s Kitchen and I think myself and Karl will be trying to think up other events we need catered.”

“Dear Naomi,

Very many thanks to you, Kate and your team for the excellent catering at Kate and Martin’s wedding at Knockree Hostel last Saturday. Everyone thought the food was delicious, beautifully prepared, presented and served. Everyone also said how good your staff were – helpful, efficient, kind and good natured throughout, so I’d be grateful if you’d pass that on to them. And of course Kate herself was brilliant in looking after everything and keeping it all flowing smoothly – a great skill.

I hope all is going well for you, and again, very many thanks to all involved.

PRIVATE WEDDING FOR 180 PERSONS IN MEATH 2010

Thank you again for doing the catering at our wedding in April. Everything worked out brilliantly on the day – the food was delicious, your staff were lovely, and the meal ran like clockwork. The months of preparation really paid off, and we appreciate your involvement with all the extra planning needed for a marquee wedding. You suggested catering suppliers, a coordinator, the drinks caterers, marquee suppliers and others, and were able to liaise with them all, as well as always being available to discuss issues with us as they arose. This made everything much easier than it might have been, and it was a pleasure working with you. We’ll be recommending you to everyone.

Una Bhreathanch and Jonathan Flynn

CYBERCOM’S 10th BIRTHDAY PARTY
Catering for Lunch, Canapes & Cupcakes for 300 people

Naomi’s food is fantastic – no doubts there. Her talent, the menus she creates and the quality of produce are all testiment to that. BUT it’s about more than just the food… it’s about people, preparation, presentation and service. That added value piece is particularly important to us. If you’re looking for a caterer, there’s no need to look beyond the team at Naomi’s Kitchen!

By the way, their Cupcakes are on par, if not better than those from the world famous Hummingbird Bakery in London!!!

We recently got married and Naomi’s Kitchen provided our catering for over 150 guests. From start to finish, we found Naomi very helpful and professional to deal with, she has lots of great ideas to inspire you, and her food is both creative and thoughtfully cooked from start to finish. From our canapes to our five course dinner, everthing was fresh and delicous. Many of our guests and ourselves thought it was the best wedding dinner they had ever had. I really hope we find another excuse to use Naomi’s Kitchen again soon!

On the day itself Naomi and her team took all of the stress out of the event, and left us free to enjoy the day. Naomi and her team were one of the reasons why we and our family/friends enjoyed the day so much, for that we are forever grateful.
We would highly recommend Naomi for any catering event.

Just a quick note of thanks for your superb catering at our wedding. Everything was perfect – everyone was raving about how the food was gorgeous, elegant and delicious, and how the service was extremely pleasant. There wasn’t one thing I would have changed. They say on the day of your wedding the bride and groom don’t eat but I think we were finished first.
It was truly a pleasure to have found you and to have worked with you. We are just hoping that we have another reason to avail of your services again!
