Very tasty food! On time service.
Chez Mikey catered a 4-course Holiday luncheon for our Corporate Headquarters, and our Team couldn't have been more pleased! From the excellent customer service we received, to the delicious, beautifully prepared cuisine - Chez Mikey is a top-notch 5-Star caterer. We will most definitely contact Mike and Diana for our next catered event!
I've used Just a Bite several times to cater parties. The owner is extremely easy to work with and made great menu suggestions. My events had themes and the food was perfectly matched to the theme. The food was beautifully presented and tasted great. I know things are made from scratch with quality ingredients and you can taste the difference. Nothing makes a hostess feel better than having guests say positive things about the food, and that happens every time I use this caterer. Most importantly, the owner delivered beyond my expectations and stayed within my budget. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this caterer to friends and family.
Trying to plan a banquet from a thousand miles away, in a problematic downtown Chicago location, is not an easy task. Luckily for me, I found Ravi at Chic Chef Catering here on Thumbtack. Ravi took care of everything, handling all the location's inherent difficulties competently and professionally. He stayed with his staff for the entire event, and made sure all of our 80+ guests were happy and well-fed. More importantly, I didn't need to worry about the caterers and the food and all the rest of it, because it was all in his capable hands. I could instead focus on our guests. We chose a Mediterranean menu--with a vegetarian option to meet some of our guests' needs. Everything was delicious and there was plenty of it! Many thanks and much appreciation to Ravi and his crew! We would absolutely use Chic Chef Catering again!
I happened to find Inglenook Catering and Joe on a quick search for local caterers. I wanted to try a different caterer with a different menu. My daughter picked the menu, and it was pretty traditional....Italian beef, Italian sausage, fried chicken, mostacolli, green beans almandine, and scalloped potatoes. Truly, I wanted to explore other items on the menu, but since I offered and it was her choice, that's what I went with. The Italian beef and sausage were homemade and definitely amazing! Great flavor and seasonings! The fried chicken was delicious as well! Everything was warmed and ready to serve. Would definitely order from Joe again! Thank you so very much for the prompt communication and coming to assist with the drop off. My guests throughly enjoyed your catering Joe, and I will definitely recommend you to my friends! Would love to try other entrees next time!!
DELICIOUS food, wonderful chef, works with person ordering. We ordered last minute and it was GREAT.
If you're looking for a great caterer you don't need to look any further! Carol was absolutely awesome to work with and the food was fantastic!! My entire crew enjoyed the meal and complimented Carol on how good it was, they even enjoyed the leftovers today! We will all look forward to Carol catering all our future luncheons!!
Green Eyed Girl in the Kitchen and her team should be your one and only choice for catering your special event! Her attention to detail and professionalism made my son and daughters wedding spectacular! Oh... did I not mention how amazing the food taste... from the chicken and waffle bites, to the crab stuffed mushrooms everything was a hit! She is my new caterer!
We have had many private chefs and caterers. We have found our “go to” chef service. Food was amazing. Mike and Matt were fun. They entertained the kids at the bar as they cooked, served.. and cleaned up. If you have never had a personal chef, try them. If you have before, uplevel to them. And by the way.. the cost was a bargain. Dinner for 8 with wine and beer pairing Less than $100 per person Insanely goid!
Professional caterer with great menu and quality food. Excellent service.
Great food! would have given 5 stars but I ordered a special plate for my friend who has food allergies and is gluten free we never got the order that we paid for. I was also charged additional fees that were never agreed upon in the original contract.
We hired Kirk for a black tie 40th birthday celebration in June 2017 in Downtown Chicago (Gold Coast), after surveying a variety of reputable best in class catering companies. We primarily sought faire and service that matched the upscale event we hoped to host for 70 - 85 attendees. We selected Kirk initially based on his responsiveness, accuracy, flexibility and professionalism. He offered full catering services and vendor support, making him the sole point of contact for the event. Due to holding the event at an art gallery, everything from tables, linens, flatware, glasses, cooking appliances, staffing and bartending needed to be supplied. Kirk confidently arranged all needs within an extremely reasonable quote and remained flexible to altering demands throughout the prep period. He customized a menu and cooked a tasting for us, in our home, to meet our expectations. He walked the event space with us and partnered directly with the gallery owner to ensure day of processes ran smoothly. But the wow factor was during the prep and execution of the event! Kirk brought a team of staff to swiftly setup the location in beautiful fashion. Each station was well oriented with artistic design matching the space and event caliber. With little direction, he ensured these settings were eye catching and photogenic. His staffing was AMAZINGLY friendly and outgoing, going above and beyond to bring cheer and personality to ensure all guest needs were met. The presentation and food quality were commendable and guests enjoyed the pace and quantity of the passed and stationed edibles. Even the gallery owner was blown away with Kirk’s talents and partnership and vowed to recommend and utilize Kirk and his team for future events. 5 Star Service and highly recommended!
The overall experience was exceptional and working with Maya was truly an amazing experience! The staff was professional and the food was delicious! Everything about the service provided was memorable and would recommend them to anyone needing a quality caterer. They took the stress off and allowed us to focus on the wedding. I can’t express how much I appreciate their service and how we were able to enjoy the wedding. Again, a big thank you to BellaRu Catering!
Chef Bailey and Bailey's Catering always does a great job with food for our church. Very professional and reasonable with rates. Savory tasting dishes and enjoyable flavor profiles!
Josh is an incredibly talented chef and a great parson to have around. My family and I have enjoyed everything he's cooked for us and we continue to be amazed at his creativity and versatility. Josh's food is so flavorful and delicious, it's easy to forget how healthy everything is. Having Josh cook for us has been a great learning experience too. He's taught us a lot about about healthy living and inspired us to make better choices, even when we eat out.
