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

I've never catered a party before and my first experience was a very positive one with Chic Chef Catering. Ravi made my late summer outdoor wedding reception a delicious, memorable affair. Fantastic attention to detail from responsive customer service to food preparation is top notch and exceeded my expectations. The menu selection is extensive with a variety of options for casual parties to elegant extravaganzas. I loved the multi-cultural culinary offerings. My event was a picnic BBQ with grill rental and foods that fit the theme including beef brisket, chicken kebobs, green salads, falafel, grilled veggies and freshly made cheesecake squares and lemon bars. Everyone loved the quinoa and spinach stuffed portabella mushroom caps and chicken! Ravi graciously prepared an entirely separate meal of grilled salmon atop sautéed spinach to accommodate my dad's reduced sodium diet - an unexpected wonderful surprise and added proof that Chic Chef Catering truly wants caters to their clients needs! I did not schedule a taste test beforehand, but I was confident that Ravi was the right choice for my reception. Ravi and his team were punctual and professional. But above all, his friendly personality and ability to deliver excellent service and quality cuisine at great value are outstanding. I HIGHLY recommend Chic Chef Catering and would use them again in a heartbeat!

For the SERVICE: Joe was very communicative and reliable. He insisted on staying until the first guests arrived at my party so that the hot food would remain hot, and was not anxious to simply drop off the food and leave. He was timely and considerate. For the FOOD: I ordered baked chicken, the homemade Italian sausage and peppers, 6 bean salad, pasta salad, baked acorn squash, and a combo cauli/broc au gratin. Since I'm from NOLA, I also added a jambalaya entree to the mix. ALL of the food was excellent. The servings were generous and delivered at the right temperatures. WHAT I LIKED THE BEST: The jabmabalya was perfect. It was not too ricey, but had a tomato base that was perfectly proportioned. I am picky about NOLA food, and this was a very good dish. The 6 bean salad sounds like a filler side dish-- but it was my favorite-- fresh, full of flavor, and addictive! The homemade Italian sausage is a must. Even when reheated the next day, it still crumbled/melted in the mouth. This is a very good dish if you are considering a main course. SUMMARY: Go with Joe! It was a good price for the service, and the food was worth it. NICE JOB!

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 Aram Reed provided a fabulous experience. His menu and preparation were exquisite and he and his wife were organized and prepared the entire meal, set the table and cleaned up for a flawless party. They are both extremely nice and fun to talk with. The entire party went off perfectly and all the guests loved the food and service and ambiance. They do a fantastic job.

Chef Kirk and his staff were awesome. We hired Mange La Vie for my sons wedding. From the time of our first contact until the day of the wedding the professionalism & responsiveness was great. Two days prior to the wedding we were notified that the elevator was broken & would not be repaired in time for the wedding. Of course we were mortified being that the venue was a third floor loft. We were of course concerned about the inconvenience to both the guest and the vendors. Well, this minor set back did not effect Chef Kirk or his staff. They handled things like true professionals! Not once did I hear him or any one on his staff complain. Flexibility at its best. Everything was amazing, The food & service. Talk about a WOW experience! Totally exceeded my expectations. Thank again Chief Kirk. I would diffently recommend you as well as hire you again myself.

I had the absolute blind luck to find the lovely Heather and D'Andre of Feast & Imbibe while looking for alternatives to typical "chicken or beef" caterers for my June 2014 wedding. I had already decided that I wanted to do an upscale cocktail reception in lieu of a seated dinner, and had quotes for over $10,000 for 80 people (and this was from a place that wanted to serve quesadillas and fried food as apps--that's fine, but not for ten grand and not at all what I was looking for). I couldn't see spending money like that on food that was impersonal and trite, and I began to look for a private chef or other alternatives to a standard wedding caterer. I honestly and truly feel lucky to have found Feast & Imbibe, as they allowed me to have everything exactly the way I wanted for an extremely reasonable price. You could really taste the thought, love and care in D'Andre's food--for real. I had some ideas in mind in terms of the feel of the menu, but I have to say that Heather and D'Andre totally blew me away and knocked it out of the park. From our first interaction, Heather was warm and professional and extremely honest about everything. I told her what I wanted and what I could spend, and she and D'Andre were willing to work with me to provide the experience I was looking for (and they ended up putting together a reception that was more than I could have asked for) for the price I wanted (I ended up spending a bit more than I envisioned, but it was purely due to MY changes--never experienced any pressure or felt like I was being pushed into anything). Heather was SO SO helpful; seeing as how I was doing most things myself, she offered herself and her services at any point she could to make things easier on me-- advice for other vendors, her own decorations, etc. AND THE FOOD...OMG D'Andre...keep on doin' what you're doin', becuase it's a month later and my guests are still talking about how amazing the food was. The food was so on point, the service was so thoughtful, and the selection was incredible. I was able to impress and please both my foodie friends and my meat and potatoes family--which is a serious feat itself. Everything about the actual day of my wedding was kind of a mess (weather, venue issues, mix-ups out of anyone's control), but the supreme service, hospitality and care that Heather and D'Andre put into catering my event absolutely made up for everything that went wrong. They were able to circumnavigate last minute issues with no problem or loss of cool, and everything down to the waitstaff and decor/signs for the food were top notch. My husband and I truly felt that they had our best interests at heart and put love into what they did for us, and we are eternally grateful. I could not have asked for more, and I will be recommending their services to anyone who will listen until I am blue in the face. Seriously, people, if you want the utmost in professionalism, care, delicious food, value for the $$--please go with Feast & Imbibe. They are amazing to say the least!! I would never even consider working with another caterer.

I chose Eric as "My Personal Chef" first because he was the first person to respond to my request. Then after speaking with Eric about what I was looking for and what I am trying to accomplish I knew I had made the right choice. Just to share what I was looking for was someone to cook for me because I work 10 hour shifts and get home at midnight. I also want to lose weight. I was spending money on food to prepare with the best of intentions and wouldn't. I have wasted more food then I care to admit. I was spending a fortune on fast food, including take out here and there. Eric was great from the time we first talked on the phone to the texts that followed. He has really personalized my meals, including snacks. Just taking away thinking about when to shop, what to make, when to make it has been priceless for me. The food tastes is wonderful and almost too beautiful to eat! :-) I can't wait until next week!

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.

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!
