I am thrilled to bits with the food and service at Chic Chef Chicago and am giving them an enthusiastic 5 stars. They catered my wedding (passed appetizers, family style dinner, open bar) on September 17th, 2017 and everything was meticulously handled. The food: Along with traditional American fare, we included a few Indian appetizers. Our guests LOVED everything! People are still calling us to rave about the food and ask who our caterer was! One thing I really love about Chic Chef is that the food at the wedding was as good as the samples we tried at the tasting (this isn't always the case with catering vendors). The flavor, presentation, and portion sizes were all excellent. I really think the food helped put all our guests in a great mood. In addition, the bar staff provided by Chic Chef did a great job of following our signature drink recipes. I also want to give a shout out to their captain server, who gave special attention to my husband and I, AND our wedding party (parents, grandparents, bridesmaid, and groomsmen). Our families were really touched by the extra attention and care, and I loved seeing our guests so well looked after. A special note for Ravi, the owner: Ravi was present during our entire wedding and oversaw everything. He checked in regularly with my husband and I to make sure we were happy. He remembered all the small details and even had a secret stash of food/drinks for my husband and I to enjoy right after the ceremony! He adjusted the dinner serving time flawlessly (we were running almost 30 minutes behind). Anyway, I could go on and on, but in summary: Chic Chef and Ravi are a solid investment for your wedding catering, they genuinely care about their couples, and oooh-my-goodness the FOOD! :)

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.

Clarissa was great -- very responsive, flexible, and accommodating. In addition, the food -- for a baby shower brunch -- was excellent! We had mini frittatas, French toast, mini pancake stacks, fruit parfaits, mini bagels with lox and cream cheese, fruit skewers, and excellent croissant sausage sandwiches with aged cheddar! Clarissa also brought garnishes for Blood Marys and mimosas and was willing to provide coffee at the last moment when I realized we didn't have it! I'd highly recommend.

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!

I used WoodisCookin Catering for Thanksgiving. His desire to make the experience as intimate as possible truly makes him unique. I found myself upset when I was getting around to the final bites of his dish; it's that good! His customer service is amazing as well! I look forward to working with WoodisCookin several times and beyond.

I've ordered from D'licious Treats many times and have yet to be disappointed. My Last few orders was a Hello Kitty Cookie Birthday Cake, my daughter was thrilled. It was the best cookie cake I've ever tasted. I also recently used the catering service for Thanksgiving and my order arrived on time. The owner came and made sure everything was set up right, she was very pleasant. The food stayed warm the entire time and the best part the food was awesome . For any Holiday I would reccomend the turkey breast with homemade gravy it was unbelievable. I will be back!!!

We had Black Fodder cater our wedding reception last month. Their coffee was phenomenal!! It was the best cold brew we have ever tasted. All of our guest were raving about how good it was. The high quality teas (they were phenomenal too) really added to the experience since not all of our guests were coffee drinkers. They definitely thought of all the details! Their presentation was professional yet down-to-earth, from the glass wear to the full service bar that they brought to the venue. We highly recommend them for any event. You won't be disappointed.
