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.

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!

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.

Chef Mike and Chef Matt took care of everything. Great service, great food, and handled coordinating all of my bar needs as well. Hosted a party of ~20 in my home and we didn't have to think about a thing other than enjoying our company. Thanks Chef!

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!

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.

Very easy to work with, very accommodating. Delivery was timely and the food was good. Only small concern was that we ordered food for 13 people, ended up only having 10 people eat and had hardly any food left over. Had we had the full13 people we originally planned for I do not know if we would have had enough. Fortunately things all worked out so it was not a real issue. Again, easy to work with, timely, good service.

I've worked with Frankies Restaurant on two occasions. One was a wedding and the other a party. Both events are ones we keep talking about. We had the chicken alloutte for the wedding and it was a hit. They served a type of rice called jollof which was the best thing ever. We had their kalua drink for beverage at the party and everyone loved. Honestly I can keep going on. I'm happy to see them on thumbtack. I would highly recommend them because they are very reasonable and provide quality food and service.

Urbano, Danny & his mom were great to work with. The food was amazing! My only suggestion would be to add credit/debit card payment as an option, whether it be setting up a PayPal account or buying the credit card attachment that you can plug into your cellphone. Thanks so much for the great service & pleasant attitudes! Very much appreciated! :-)

I’m a lawyer finishing my MBA, planning my wedding and trying to kickstart my weight loss. I wasn’t sure where to start, but Mark gave me the step by step support I needed. In two weeks, I lost 7 pounds with a combination of his coaching, nutrition, and meal prep services. I'm so glad I found him - Thanks Mark!

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!
