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!

Ravi gave us a great deal, and worked through many details with us for our wedding reception. He came in-person to our venue walk-through, and was at the event to make sure everything went smoothly. We had a full roast pig (which we requested and they delivered!), salad, rolls, and a very nice ice cream bar for dessert. Our guests loved it and the food was delicious. Thanks Chic Chef Catering!

Jonathon, Yes, we loved catering your wedding at Hive on Hubbard and the pig roast was a hit. That's what makes us unique. We can make any type of custom menu our clients like. Thank you and Congratulations,

ChicChef was excellent! They submitted a bid and followed up on a timely basis. Another caterer I contacted had to be reminded to submit a bid. The food was terrific and the service was professional and responsive. I loved the set up and service. We had a medical emergency during the reception and one of the servers cleared the area so that the physician's assistant at the wedding could work until the ambulance came. I can't say enough great things are ChicChef and would highly recommend them for all your caterer events.

FAQs

  • 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.
