We had Chic Chef cater for our wedding reception a few weeks ago. We were absolutely blown away! They provided us with linens, glasses, silverware, plates and more! Our reception space wasn’t the biggest but their team worked really well to manage around it in a professional way. We loved the food! Once we came back from our honeymoon all our guests were raving about our caterers. Good quality, professional, friendly and flexible. Thanks to Chic Chef for making our day incredible! I definitely recommend you to choose them to caterer your event.

Ravi and the team at Chic Chef Catering made our wedding an absolute treat. The food was better than anything I’ve ever tasted at a wedding, they ensured neither the groom nor I ever had an empty glass, and were absolutely dedicated team players. I cannot recommend their service enough to other couples looking for remarkable catering for their special day. Any event served by this team is going to be a smash hit with truly invested support!

Easy and professional to work with. I chose him as my wedding caterer and he's been very open and listens to what we were interested in about how we wanted something, about whether something should be more spicy, or not, etc. I appreciate working with him and I think it's important to think about both the quality of work a business puts forth as well as how they work with you. I have been happy with Ravi. While my wedding has been postponed due to covid, it's been pleasant working with him during the planning of it. I am sure it ultimately be an even more special wedding day thanks to his food.

I hired them for catering and chef services and everything turned out great. They were punctual, professional, reasonable, and communicative.

Thank you for making her day so special 💖

Where do we start.... We found Ravi and Chic Chef while online searching for a potential caterer during the Fall 2019 to hire onto our team of vendors for our 2020 wedding. The tasting was amazing, the team was super responsive and friendly, and the price was extremely reasonable. We walked out of the tasting knowing that we were sold and immediately made the decision to hire Ravi and Chic Chef for our 200 person wedding. And then the coronavirus crisis struck........ The team at Chic Chef kept in constant communication as we navigated through uncertain times and we approached our July wedding that we were unsure we’d be able to have. About three weeks before the wedding date, we decided to go through with it. With all the new restrictions in place, we switched to an outside venue, cut the guest list from 200 to 60 and had what felt like zero planning time. Chic Chef was more than accommodating with our new plan and excited to begin cooking and serving our guests! Ravi made himself available immediately to tour the new outside venue and helped put together a schedule for the night. Chic Chef was there for support every step of the way! The guests raved about the food during and after the event! Our ice cream sundae bar was a favorite for many. Ravi personally ensured the event was spectacular, he would constantly come up to our sweetheart table to ensure my wife and I didn’t need anything. (We even caught him busting out a couple socially distanced moves on the dance floor! Once dinner was over of course!) The Chic Chef staff was professional and played a huge role in making our day run seamlessly. Their team worked really well with our other vendors, which was key. We couldn’t be more thankful for Ravi and his team and would hire him again for future events without hesitation. Don’t look any further if thinking of hiring Chic Chef, Ravi and Chic Chef won’t let you down. We honestly couldn’t have done it without them!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I base my prices on per person and from there can make adjustments to give final price based on the menu provided by client.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My first goal is learning 3 things right away: What the occasion is, what type of cuisine is in mind, and how many guests are expected. After that information is provided, I can do my best to stay within budget and offer suggestions to assist the most I can.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have over 20 years of experience in the restaurant industry. I learned many aspects of the business including managing banquet halls and catering and I have learned what it takes to make an event successful, from small corporate lunches to Indian weddings with over 1000 guests.
