Chef Rich was prompt, professional and prepared a fabulous Sunday brunch for 10 in my home. All guests raved about the food and I raved about the ease of hosting with Kelly handling the kitchen - which was left spotless. What a great value! I will certainly use them again!
I hired North Island Catering for our annual Sailing Team alumni dinner, and this catering company was absolutely wonderful to work with. They were tremendously accommodating and made the catering process so easy. The food was delicious as well! A hit overall. Highly recommend.
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 am very pleased! I spoke with Joe and he is true to his word. I had a graduation brunch and the food was exactly what I wanted, fresh, ready to serve, large quantities. I would recommend confidently recommend Inglenook Catering to anyone.
Loretta catered my wedding and I've been hearing for the last week and a half how good the food was!
Chef Mike and his team prepared amazing appetizers for a cocktail party at my house. Our guests loved the food – the savory waffles topped with fried chicken and spicy honey were a crowd favorite! Chef Mike arrived on time; got everything organized; prepared and served the food and drinks; and cleaned the kitchen spotless before finishing up. He and his team made hosting a party so easy. I’ll definitely be hiring them again!
Aram and Sarah were fantastic and they served up an awesome Mother's Day brunch. Aram's creativity, skill and professionalism was unparalleled. I have hired many many chefs for various occasions but I would say we enjoyed the food and camaraderie of this particular meal more than any of them. i would highly, highly, highly recommend Aram if you have a private event and you need the best! - Rich
Better than all the rest! Chef Kirk and team prepared a fabulous dinner for 4 at my home, he came on time and prepared to cook. A few days before my event, chef Kirk called asked abour changes and confirmed times. The dinner was amazing from the cherry glazed roast, chicken confit, to the goat cheese crackers. We are still talking about the 6 course feast chek Kirk prepared.
Chef Damien Eftekhar was the personal chef for our Mother's Day brunch at my mother-in-law's house for a party of 15. He was spectacular. All age groups agreed that the food was outstanding - grandparents, adults, teens, little kids. Chef Damien was extremely professional in all aspects of the event. Fast response, great suggestions for menu selection, flexible in menu changes and willing to prepare anything asked. Hardworking and professional on the job. Friendly and easy to work with. Upfront with the costs and any changes to the original quote. Very helpful in making adjustments to stay within budget. This was our first experience with a personal chef and it was terrific. We would definitely hire Chef Damien again (and have already started making plans to do so).
Chef Karen prepared a delectable brunch for family and friends. Presentation and service were gracious. Everyone left smiling!
Everything was perfect. All guests commented on how delicious the food was. The staff left the premises as clean as they found them . I would definitely have them cater a future event.
Josh was the head chef for our wedding of about 215 people and he absolutely killed it! He took care of everything, a real full service experience, so we could focus on more important things, like getting married! The food he made was absolutely incredible. Marinated chicken breast, avocado salad, chipotle roasted potatoes, you name it! Many wedding guests personally told us that it was the best wedding meal they had ever had. Some even said it was one of their favorite meals ever, and wanted the recipe. I give a complete recommendation for Josh. His professionalism, his talent, and his personality really make him one of a kind.
When planning a party it's very difficult to find the perfect combination of professionalism and culinary expertise. I found both in hiring Chez Mikey. My guests and I were so impressed with Chef Mike's preparation of our appetizers and main entré. We began our dinner with a one bite amuse bouchée, marinated carrots and cucumber caviar tray. Beautiful and very delicious. For the entré we had the "Hunters' Trophy" (lamb chop on top of polenta and a slowly cooked chicken thigh). This combination was presented artfully; and more importantly this dish was so tasty that even the guests with whom lamb chops are not thier favorite protein, found the lamb chop tender and cooked to perfection and loved it. Chef Mike ended the meal with a special chocolate ganache celebration cake which left all my guests happily ending on a sweet note. When I have another event, I'm speed dialing Chez Mikey because he will soon be booked up. Chef Mike and Sous Chef Diana are top notch in making a party scrumptious and elegant without the worry.
I would like to thank you for catering my birthday party. Your menu is impressive and I was happy to see you were able to cook meal choices not on your menu. Your prices was very reasonable for the amount of people you prepared food for. Everyone that attended said your food was great and I will agree.You and your staff were very professional and showed true meaning to serves with a smile. I was impressed, I have your card, I will be in touch.
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.
I have dined with Mark at several of his pop ups, and have hired him to cater a major fundraising event. Even with a near-last minute request, Mark and his team were beyond professional - they were charming, funny, and our guests loved interacting with them nearly as much as they loved the delicious meal! He catered to our dietary restrictions without issue, and the overall quality of the experience was unmatched. If I could give more than 5 stars, I wouldn't hesitate.
I had the pleasure of working with Chef Taryn on two different occasions. The first occasion was for a dinner party and I enjoyed that experience so much I hired her to cater an event for me as well. She is incredibly skillful in culinary arts and it was a delight to work with her throughout each event. Her ability to talk me through each course and deliver a meal that far exceeded all of my expectations was truly incredible. I highly suggestion hiring this talented professional Chef, I will again and again!!
My husband and I worked with Mya through Chic Chef Catering and loved her immediately! She was really amazing to work with and helped a lot with our budget. She was very responsive with communication and very professional through everything. We would definitely recommend working with Mya with any event. She makes you feel like her family and is always willing to cater to anything you need. Great personality and great communication!
Priscilla's cooking is one of the few gems I look forward to. As someone who has dined at very expensive restaurants and appreciates quality food, Priscilla's food still stands among the top ranks. I now seek for any opportunity to use to employ her culinary skills and catering abilities. If you ever get a taste for her meals, you will not be disappointed!
Look no further for the utmost professionalism and the best quality food/catering! I cannot rave enough about Michael! I hosted my baby shower at my townhouse in Lincoln Park. Most of my family is on the east coast, so the guest list was only about 20 people. I knew I didn't want myself or another guest to have to worry about cooking and a few of my guests have specific dietary restrictions so I wasn't comfortable ordering from a restaurant. One of my friends works at the law firm where Michael is the chef and passed along his information, letting me know he also caters these types of private events. Plus, she kept RAVING about how awesome his food is. Michael was so refreshing to work with from start to finish. He was responsive, detail oriented, and extremely professional (not to mention so friendly!) We had an initial phone meeting to discuss menu ideas, dietary restrictions, and theming. He got back to me with a preliminary menu (including a full ingredient list) and questions regarding what my kitchen was capable of (how big my oven is, how many burners I have, etc.) As I said, very detail oriented. He also came up with thoughtful, creative ideas for my friend's dietary restrictions so they could enjoy the "fun" treats, too! One of my favorite gluten free treats were his dark chocolate coconut tarts- totally delicious. The day of the shower he arrived right on time with everything we discussed for the final menu. He was professional and completely unobtrusive. He ensured all of the food was the correct temperature when served. He even came prepared with ingredient cards to put out with the food. Everything was DELICIOUS. But I think the best part of hiring Michael was that he left my kitchen SPOTLESS! I swear it was cleaner than when he started. Seriously, look no further for in-home catering. I already know who will do Baby Rose's first birthday party. I swear, Michael is Chicago's best kept secret.
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!
