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

To say that Mike and Derrick were amazing would be an understatement. They are friendly, personable and very talented chefs. The food was fresh, cooked perfectly and delicious beyond delicious. The presentation was gorgeous and they even cleaned up after. Highly recommend these guys and will definitely use them again and again.

This was my first experience with a personal chef and was very pleased with how stress free it was. Tamara gave me menu ideas and was very accommodating. She was punctual and arrived on time with all her supplies in hand. She cleaned up the kitchen and left it the way it started off. I did not have to lift a finger. Her food was also very yummy especially the ceaser salad and Ahi tuna. Thanks Tamara for a wonderful birthday dinner.

Damien was truly Awesome! The meal was for a total of 10 people we had plenty. We had prime rib, mash potatoes, asparagus and cream spinach for dinner. Also he made some to die for Margaritas and bruschetta for an appetizer. He brought everything he needed and cleaned up afterwards. The food was very tasty and delicious! I will absolutely be using him in the future!

Having high BP, prior stroke, and now Parkinson's, it was critical for me to have quality low fat, trend toward vegan/vegetarian, with quality seafood for protein. Meals delicious, highly varied, delivered to your door weekly, easily microwaveable--terrific service!

I am a private chef and has been for more than 10 years. I have a culinary degree and have a very strong work experience as a private chef here in Chicago. I have cooked for some influential people through my career. I cook organic, healthy meals for my clients. Some goes to the extreme of weighing food and counting calories. Recently, I put my client to counting calories and he had lost 10 pounds committing to it and staying active by working out with his trainer. As a person, I love sports, outdoors and enjoy working out. I run marathon to stay in shape. I cook different types of cuisines and give emphasis to healthy eating by substituting unhealthy stuff with healthy ingredients. My track record will prove that I am a loyal employee/staff since I stay with clients for many years. I will give more information when a potential client gets in touch.
