I couldn't have been happier with our experience with Chef Most Wanted. It was my first time hiring a personal chef. Right from the start, Chef Rich was great to work with. I appreciated his prompt and clear communication on how things would work, and his help picking the menu. I had him do a gourmet breakfast for family and guests as part of a special birthday weekend for my husband. The breakfast was a huge hit! The food was fresh, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious! At the end of the weekend many people said the breakfast was their favorite part of the celebration. We will definitely use Chef Rich again, and hopefully soon!
North Island Catering was a pleasure to work with. They did a great job helping keep our Non-profit organization within budget while still providing excellent service and food. Breakfast for dinner was a great new hit at our yearly fundraiser for Catholic Assistance Missions. I highly recommend their homemade quiches and coffee cakes. They are more than willing to work with dietary/allergy concerns as well. There are things I would change to our menu based off of what was leftover at the end of our night, but that is understandable since this was the first time working with them and offering this type of food. We will gladly work with them in the years to come. Thank you so much Allen and Christina for helping us with our event.
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!
I happened to find Inglenook Catering and Joe on a quick search for local caterers. I wanted to try a different caterer with a different menu. My daughter picked the menu, and it was pretty traditional....Italian beef, Italian sausage, fried chicken, mostacolli, green beans almandine, and scalloped potatoes. Truly, I wanted to explore other items on the menu, but since I offered and it was her choice, that's what I went with. The Italian beef and sausage were homemade and definitely amazing! Great flavor and seasonings! The fried chicken was delicious as well! Everything was warmed and ready to serve. Would definitely order from Joe again! Thank you so very much for the prompt communication and coming to assist with the drop off. My guests throughly enjoyed your catering Joe, and I will definitely recommend you to my friends! Would love to try other entrees next time!!
Loretta was really easy to work with. She was flexible and adjusted the menu to my needs. I got feedback from my guests that the food looked and tasted good. I would strongly recommend her.
Our experience with Cater-2-U Catering was outstanding! They were very professional. The food was amazing, expecially the chicken waffle sandwiches. Our guests loved the food. I would highly recommend using their services.
I highly recommend Chef Aram Reed for your next event or dinner party. He worked with me to host a special Birthday party for my wife and we were absolutely delighted with him and the delicious food he prepared. He was professional, worked with me on dietary restrictions a guest had, and was personal and engaging with my friends and family at the event. His multicourse meal items tasted amazing and were beautifully presented. I really enjoyed collaborating and planning our event with Chef Aram and have already told a number of my friends and colleagues about our excellent experience with him. We are impressed by his talents and will definitely use him again when hosting a dinner party.
KIRK CHEF IS AMAZING! For Christmas our son and daughter-in-law gave us a gift certificate for a private home chef experience. Chef Kirk called us 4 days before our scheduled evening to ask us our food preferences and/or food allergies. The evening of, Chef arrived on time with everything he needed to prepare a 6 course gourmet meal. The only things we needed to provide were flatware and plates. He gave us the option of sitting at our kitchen peninsula or in our dining room. We chose the interactive experience without a second thought. We watched Chef prepare a starter of crab cakes with capers, roasted garlic, lemon and fresh herbs served with cranberry walnut bread. The next course was a salad with roasted pear and pomegranate. Then we had seared sea scallops. Keep in mind that we have not gotten to the entree yet. The main course was blackened salmon with plantains and crispy kale. Dessert was a chocolate mousse with vanilla panna cotta and mango gelato. The transitions between courses were seamless. THIS WAS A 5 STAR MEAL!
If you want a delicious meal by an amazing chef, then Damien is definitely your guy. He prepared an Asian fusion dinner for about 35 friends and family members. His attention to detail, cleanliness, and great personality sets himself apart!
I surprised my husband with a personal chef to prepare breakfast for us for his birthday. The experience was amazing! Karen was very nice and professional. She came up with the menu and brought everything with her. She even cleaned up after. We will definitely be using her again!
DELICIOUS food, wonderful chef, works with person ordering. We ordered last minute and it was GREAT.
It was perfect! On-time delivery and set up. A delicious, abundant, of food. Dessert was amazing. Definitely would use again!
When planning a party it's very difficult to find the perfect combination of professionalism and culinary expertise. I found both in hiring Chez Mikey. My guests and I were so impressed with Chef Mike's preparation of our appetizers and main entré. We began our dinner with a one bite amuse bouchée, marinated carrots and cucumber caviar tray. Beautiful and very delicious. For the entré we had the "Hunters' Trophy" (lamb chop on top of polenta and a slowly cooked chicken thigh). This combination was presented artfully; and more importantly this dish was so tasty that even the guests with whom lamb chops are not thier favorite protein, found the lamb chop tender and cooked to perfection and loved it. Chef Mike ended the meal with a special chocolate ganache celebration cake which left all my guests happily ending on a sweet note. When I have another event, I'm speed dialing Chez Mikey because he will soon be booked up. Chef Mike and Sous Chef Diana are top notch in making a party scrumptious and elegant without the worry.
I would like to thank you for catering my birthday party. Your menu is impressive and I was happy to see you were able to cook meal choices not on your menu. Your prices was very reasonable for the amount of people you prepared food for. Everyone that attended said your food was great and I will agree.You and your staff were very professional and showed true meaning to serves with a smile. I was impressed, I have your card, I will be in touch.
Cheffield Events & Catering has to be one of the best caterers we have hired for the office. The food smelled and tasted amazing. Everyone was going back for seconds and thirds!!! We are a picky bunch, but we will be using Cheffield's in the future. They were prompt, professional and the presentations was great. We loved that they printed up a menu for our small gathering. We would recommend Cheffield Events & Catering for catering, and we hope to do many events with them.
I have dined with Mark at several of his pop ups, and have hired him to cater a major fundraising event. Even with a near-last minute request, Mark and his team were beyond professional - they were charming, funny, and our guests loved interacting with them nearly as much as they loved the delicious meal! He catered to our dietary restrictions without issue, and the overall quality of the experience was unmatched. If I could give more than 5 stars, I wouldn't hesitate.
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.
My husband and I worked with Mya through Chic Chef Catering and loved her immediately! She was really amazing to work with and helped a lot with our budget. She was very responsive with communication and very professional through everything. We would definitely recommend working with Mya with any event. She makes you feel like her family and is always willing to cater to anything you need. Great personality and great communication!
Priscilla's cooking is one of the few gems I look forward to. As someone who has dined at very expensive restaurants and appreciates quality food, Priscilla's food still stands among the top ranks. I now seek for any opportunity to use to employ her culinary skills and catering abilities. If you ever get a taste for her meals, you will not be disappointed!
Look no further for the utmost professionalism and the best quality food/catering! I cannot rave enough about Michael! I hosted my baby shower at my townhouse in Lincoln Park. Most of my family is on the east coast, so the guest list was only about 20 people. I knew I didn't want myself or another guest to have to worry about cooking and a few of my guests have specific dietary restrictions so I wasn't comfortable ordering from a restaurant. One of my friends works at the law firm where Michael is the chef and passed along his information, letting me know he also caters these types of private events. Plus, she kept RAVING about how awesome his food is. Michael was so refreshing to work with from start to finish. He was responsive, detail oriented, and extremely professional (not to mention so friendly!) We had an initial phone meeting to discuss menu ideas, dietary restrictions, and theming. He got back to me with a preliminary menu (including a full ingredient list) and questions regarding what my kitchen was capable of (how big my oven is, how many burners I have, etc.) As I said, very detail oriented. He also came up with thoughtful, creative ideas for my friend's dietary restrictions so they could enjoy the "fun" treats, too! One of my favorite gluten free treats were his dark chocolate coconut tarts- totally delicious. The day of the shower he arrived right on time with everything we discussed for the final menu. He was professional and completely unobtrusive. He ensured all of the food was the correct temperature when served. He even came prepared with ingredient cards to put out with the food. Everything was DELICIOUS. But I think the best part of hiring Michael was that he left my kitchen SPOTLESS! I swear it was cleaner than when he started. Seriously, look no further for in-home catering. I already know who will do Baby Rose's first birthday party. I swear, Michael is Chicago's best kept secret.
My Friends and family gathering are always a reason to have My Girls Soul Food and Barbecue on hand. Ms. Loretta is the best when it comes to Soul food and my all time favorite is her Mixed Greens. I never get tired of them. If you are looking for a meal that will make you smile from ear to ear, this is the 5 star Soul Food Caterer of Choice!
