Chefs were on time, very relaxed, kind, and professional. They did not rush us and make everyone feel comfortable. The food was amazing and they made more than enough. It was a fantastic experience!
I am a few weeks late posting this review but I simply had to make time to say what a WONDERFUL company North Island catering is!! We not only had the very BEST service from the moment I sent request looking for a catering company for our event, but the food, service, bartenders, chefs, waiters and waitresses all did a phenomenal job start to finish! The owners were always a phone call or email away and answered my calls almost on the first ring every single time! We had meetings before our event to be sure we were all on the same page with every detail and they certainly did not miss a thing! We were hosting our Daughter's going away party into the Coast Guard. We held the party outdoors on our dock at our harbor downtown Chicago. We had to have hundreds of guests throughout the evening and every single guest mentioned to us how delicious the food was and the great service they received from the chef, waiter, waitresses and bartender! We will certainly hire this company each and every time we host a party! They made this event go so smoothly that it was so nice to have a stress free party and enjoy time with all of our guests without having any of the stress or headaches that can come along with parties that size. I must send a HUGE THANK YOU to Alan, Christina, and their FANTASTIC staff at "North Island catering"!! Paulette C
Dynamite team of chefs for our outdoor event hosted at our home. The chefs prepared a seafood boil and bbq for 40 guests, all the food cooked to perfection. Looking forward to working with Chic Chef Catering again in the future.
I want to thank Joe and his staff and chef's that took the time to prepare such great food everyone complemented on how great the setup was and how delicious the food was me and my husband are truly thankful for everything and would recommend him 100%
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!
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
Everything was PERFECT! I did a cake tasting at her home. I showed a picture of what I had in mind and it was exactly what I asked for. Everyone at my wedding had cake and LOVED it!! Couldn't be more happy or thankful!! :)
Contacted Chef Carol to do an after work networking event and cocktail party for 100 people. She presented a selection of menu items that would work within a very short period of time from out initial meeting. On the day of the event she arrived promptly with all the supplies needed and handled every detail perfectly. We received raved reviews from the attendees about all the food but especially the flat breads. Chef Carol took care of all the clean up also and let the event spotless as well. A true professional who delivers quality food, we cannot wait for our next event to hire her back.
We hired Tracy to be part of a two chef team for a baby shower for 70+ guests at our home and were extremely pleased. She was punctual, very helpful and was not hesitant to do whatever needed to be done. We will certainly hire her again.
DELICIOUS food, wonderful chef, works with person ordering. We ordered last minute and it was GREAT.
Chef DiMaria made a golf group of 10 a WONDERFUL dinner. The menu consisted of antipasto, salad, lasagne, chicken vesuvio, and cannoli. Wine and Sambuca was included in the price. The food was FABULOUS!! Frank did all of the clean up. It was a great way for a group to have a casual evening of fine food and socializing. It was one of the many highlights of our trip. I would do this again in a heartbeat.
I ordered two dozen cupcakes for my son's end of the year class party. When Tanesha delivered them, we were so excited! She even had two samples for us to enjoy at home. They were packaged beautifully & easy to carry. The kids loved them :) Tanesha is professional, thoughtful & quite the baker!
Bailey's Catering is on point with being on time, food set up and decor. Chef Bailey cares about the quality of food and most importantly the client.
Chef Mikey was great to work with. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. I already have a date set for our next event!
BellaRu offered incredible service and delicious food! Everyone at our wedding was raving about the food. Chef Nick is a genius and I would highly recommend them!
Chef Wood cooked for a small dinner party at my home. He was prompt, provided great service and the food was AMAZING!! He even traveled pretty far just to cater my party. I definitely recommend his services.
Tony is a true professional, and an outstanding chef! We will have him back for years to come.
My lovely Girlfriend brought Mariela in to cook for my 30th birthday and it could not have been better. She came over to our place, groceries and tools in hand, and put together one of the best meals we've had in a long long time. She also gladly cooked up pretty much everything she bought, so we've been eating leftovers all week. Don't hesitate to bring her in, you won't be disappointed.
Excellent service, delicious food, lovely presentation.
Can't say much- just eaten one meal and it was very nice
Chef Dan catered my daughter's graduation party. All of the food was fantastic and I received many compliments from my guests. He was prompt with his delivery and his prices were extremely reasonable. Highly recommend.
