Our company hosted a dinner at our office for about 15 of our clients. The food and service were plentiful and outstanding, and planning the event was a breeze. We also don't have any cooking appliances or equipment in our office, and Chef Rich was able to bring all of that with no issues. Clients raved about it for weeks afterwards; would highly recommend.

Ravi at Chic Chef Catering was excellent! The food was delicious and warm when served. He and his staff were very professional and punctual, making sure everyone was taken care of and that dinner was cleaned up at the end. He and his staff were great, and I would certainly recommend them!

The catering service Just a Bite is owned & operated by a family who has decades of experience in the Chicagoland food industry and top restaurants. They know every recipe from any restaurant and probably make it better! They've catered small birthday parties and larger surprise events for us during the last 10 years. Everything is always delicious, affordable and easy to eat while guests are milling around. They bring everything and are dressed appropriately for an event even during set up. Super friendly owner who is easy to deal with if you have guests with finicky dietary requirements or substitutions. My advice is to get a price. Just a Bite has the price we need while still wowing our guests who always ask for the name of the caterer.

Tamara was fantastic to work with. She responded right away to questions and kept me filled in on all details. Her menu was flexible to the needs of the lunch - tastes, allergies, etc. The food was delicious. There were so many compliments on the sandwiches! Working with her was very seamless and I'd absolutely recommend her service.

I have used Chef Aram Reed for 3 dinner parties in the last year and have alway been extremely impressed by the food and the service. The food is extremely delicious and elegantly displayed. By the end of the night, it seems like all my guests want to know the name of my caterer. Aram also brings well trained helpers who seem to be able to read my mind on what needs to be done before, during and after the party. I highly recommend Chef Aram and his team!

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!

Chef Damien was a pleasure to work with! I would highly recommend his services. We hosted a group of 18 for a formal four course birthday dinner at our home, and Chef Damien delivered in every aspect. Actually, he didn't just deliver- he surpassed our expectations. I should mention that I work in the hospitality industry, and that half of our dinner guests also work in the industry. Needless to say people had high expectations. Everyone was thoroughly impressed with Damien's friendly nature, cool demeanor and his warm hospitality. Not to mention the food was amazing! He really went above and beyond for us. We all felt like he was an old friend by the end of the night. Chef was totally flexible with changes and ran with everything we threw at him. It felt like he was having as much fun planning and delivering the meal as I was. Sometimes chefs can be a little touchy, or protective of their vision- in the way an artist might be. While I definitely qualify Damien as an artist in the kitchen, he was never touchy or negative. He was always super humble, kind and willing to go the extra mile. His passion for food and people is evident in his service. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

Feast & Imbibe did an incredible job catering my wedding. Everyone was talking about how amazing the food was, and it honestly was the best wedding food, or food for that matter, that I’ve ever had. Heather and her team were so helpful and really walked us through the whole process. I mean, I’ve never planned a wedding before, or even a party for 200 people. Everyone at F&I was personable and attentive. They really made our day seamless and easy. I thought I’d be so stressed, but Heather & Christina, made sure I worried about nothing. They thought of everything!

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.

Cheffield Events & Catering has to be one of the best caterers we have hired for the office. The food smelled and tasted amazing. Everyone was going back for seconds and thirds!!! We are a picky bunch, but we will be using Cheffield's in the future. They were prompt, professional and the presentations was great. We loved that they printed up a menu for our small gathering. We would recommend Cheffield Events & Catering for catering, and we hope to do many events with them.

Taryn is a well organized, professional, and highly talented chef. Her food is fresh, creative, and absolutely delicious! She knows how to make healthy yet decadent food, but if you want to experience the full range of her cooking, let her use butter! I've used her for my last two dinner parties and will not go back to catering or any other private chef again. She has them all beat.

Maya truly went above and beyond for our wedding day! She was the manager for our event before starting her own company and she KILLED IT! She provided incredible and helpful expertise throughout the planning process and especially on the day - Maya and the rest of the staff did more than we even expected them to (like folding napkins and lighting candles, for example). Plus, the food was amazing. We knew early on that we wanted fried chicken and Maya was able to serve it hot and crispy to 140 people; we got tons of compliments on the food and the service. Overall, she made our reception so easy and wonderful - we couldn't be happier!

My Friends and family gathering are always a reason to have My Girls Soul Food and Barbecue on hand. Ms. Loretta is the best when it comes to Soul food and my all time favorite is her Mixed Greens. I never get tired of them. If you are looking for a meal that will make you smile from ear to ear, this is the 5 star Soul Food Caterer of Choice!
