We hired Chef Rich and his team to cater my husband's 40th birthday party. His team serviced 60 of my guests. The full catering service included delivery/pickup of rental equipment, setup , clean up, servers, & a bartendar. They're service made the day/night enjoyable as they took care of everything including picking up the ice, mixers, etc. All i had to do was ask. The food they prepared was delicious, we had a combination of meat appetizers and vegetarian appetizers. The guests thoroughly enjoyed the food. The only thing i would have changed was to have the servers pass out the food more consistently to my guests rather than having it placed on a table in the corner as it quickly got cold and perhaps didn't taste as good as it would have hot/warm. Other than that my experience with Chef's Most Wanted Catering & Chef Services was outstanding. I would definitely use their services again for both big and small events. Thank you for making the night a success!

The service, quality of food, reliability and price was outstanding! Allen was able to prepare breakfast and lunch for a crowd of approx. 500 people. The presentation was very well organized and appealing. Allen went above and beyond to make sure we were ready for the event with follow up phone calls, emails and coordinating a time to visit the location for proper set-up. It was extremely impressive how Allen was able to handle a tight timeline between breakfast and lunch. Many compliments were shared by those who enjoyed the delicious food. We highly recommend Allen for your next catering service needs! Thank you Allen for helping make our event a huge success! Look forward to working with you again.

I just had a wonderful wedding for 70 people which Chic Chef Catering catered. I could not speak more highly of Ravi and his team. From the first contact, Ravi was very professional and accommodating. He was able to work within my budget while offering more than any other caterer would. He offered sound advice on how to get my vision realized and everything was perfect. His menu is extensive enough to accommodate anyone's taste and needs. He set up a prime rib carving station which really classed up the event. The food was amazing. I received plenty of complements for both his food and service. He checked in regularly before the event and kept me updated continuously. He went above and beyond my every expectation. I will not only recommend Chic Chef Catering for any event, I will employ his services again if I ever need catering services again.

This is now my second time working with Joseph Burby and Inglenook Catering. Inglenook catering was absolutely a joy to work with! Joe did a food tasting for us, gave wonderful recommendations that helped guide me in making decisions, and was VERY accommodating. He was a wonderful communicator and the food was a HOME RUN! Everyone at our fundraiser banquet was so impressed with the meal and the staff that was provided. This is the second time I have used Inglenook; from a 90 person event to a 350 person event, Inglenook is the caterer to have.

Robin and her team, an additional server and a bartender did an outstanding job at my sons wedding. Robin attended to every detail, setting up, serving, cleaning and packaging all of the food and appetizers. The bar tender set up and managed all of the liquor, ice, kegs and clean up. Extremely professional and friendly. I would and will recommend Savor Your Party to anyone needing help for any size event. They are the best!!

We used Just A Bite for our son's wedding in Wheaton held at a local church with 125 guests. We coordinated everything long distance as we live in Minnesota. Loretta was super responsive and a delight to work with on all details and questions. Everyone raved about the appetizers and there was plenty for all. Her prices are very reasonable for the quality and quantity provided. Great selections to choose from. I would highly recommend her catering services.

I hired Lakeshore Private Chef & Catering to cater a joint 40th and 85th birthday celebration. I couldn't have been happier with the results. The food was delicious and Chef David was a delight to work with. If I ever needed to do this again, I would definitely hire this company again.

My daughter's graduation party was a dream come true for me and my daughter. C2Details took my ideas and brought them to life in full color. She arrived 2 hours early, had everything we discussed, and went to work transferring transforming the space. Her attention details surpassed my expectations and my guests were pleasantly surprised and impressed by the decor The backdrop allowed everyone to get a good photo with the graduate in front of a classy background. Yhe glassblocked centerpieces with my daughter's name was over the top. I would definitely use her again for my next event. The bar has been set.

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!

This was my first time hiring a caterer, and I was not disappointed. This was also my first time using Thumbtack. Had never even heard of it before googling “caterers near me”. Carol of Food with Flair did a wonderful job catering a family outdoor BBQ at my home for my dad’s 90th birthday. We had 25 people in attendance, and many commented on how good the food was. She was very responsive from the moment she and I were matched through Thumbtack, all the way through my event. She helped plan the meal, making suggestions on food items that were popular at other BBQs she had catered; arrived promptly the day of the event with much of the food prep completed and the remainder completed once she arrived; provided the warming trays, serving dishes, and serving utensils; grilled the meat (hamburgers and chicken) on my Weber grill; set up the serving table; had the meal ready in a timely fashion; put away leftovers for me; and left my kitchen clean. She also was able to work with dietary restrictions. She offered to provide paper goods and make arrangements for other supplies (e.g. canopy), which I declined. She brought two pineapple upside down cakes (my Dad’s favorite), and because we had neglected to discuss which of us would provide the candles, she decided to play it safe and brought a “9” & a “0” candle for one of the cakes. For the other cake she had a friend create a diecut that read “Happy 90th Birthday” in colors that coordinated with the cake. It was a nice, thoughtful surprise. While I had thought about asking whether she offered tastings, I didn’t due to the small size of my party; the short time frame between booking the party and the event itself; and her experience as an executive chef. I trusted that the food would be good, and it was. But I can’t share whether she offers tastings or not. My husband and I were very pleased with the service Carol provided and would definitely use her again.

We recently hosted a large Halloween party at our home and decided that hiring a bar tender(s) would really help our guests (and us) have a good time that night. I found John's Bartending Services online and, after reading the stellar reviews, decided to contact him. John and his team are the best! From the very beginning, John was on top of all communications and incredibly organized. Plus, throughout the entire process, I got a sense that nothing makes John and his team happier than going above and beyond expectations. John was already working a different event the night of our party, so Janet (his wife) and Holli were our bartenders that evening. Janet and Holli are the best! They made sure our guests had whatever they wanted to drink - even running up and down to get mixed drinks or anything from the basement bar so guests didn't have to leave the outside patio - checking on the food, helping throw out used plates/glasses and more. They were both so lovely and our guests adored them. Plus they took stellar care of us too, and we enjoyed actually being able to enjoy our party instead of running around all night trying to make sure everyone had everything they needed. John even stopped by after his event was done to make sure we were happy and to help Janet and Holli pack up for the night. Truly top notch customer service all around and great people. We've had lots of requests for a repeat party next year, and if we do, we'll definitely reach out to John's Bartending Service again to help out.

I was very pleased with the catering process from Kitchfix. Ashley was very responsive and helpful throughout the ordering process and the food was very to most of our staff's liking. We ordered the Rosemary Beef, Falafel, Maple Shallot Chicken Breast, Caramelized Apple and Walnut Salad, and had sides including green beans, cauliflower and broccoli, and a cauliflower rice. All prepared and executed well.

    I'm not 100% sure of bartender/alcohol choices and options. I'm trying to figure out how much it will cost to do it one way versus the other and to also figure out how to go about handling alcohol at my reception. Thank you.
