Chef Most Wanted prepared a delicious meal for our graduation party. I would highly recommend this catering company. Thank you!
We used North Island Catering for my husband's retirement party. The food and service was outstanding. We had the pulled pork, lasagna and Ceasar salad. They provided more than enough food to serve our 30 guests. The food was all homemade. All of the guests raved about it! The next party we host will be easy as far as food, because we will be using North Island caterers for sure!!!! If you're looking for good food and outstanding service, Dave time looking and call Northd Island Catering!!!
Ravi's menu offerings were the most interesting of the local caterers I looked at before I chose him to cater my parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary. The food was delicious, very high quality, and arrived right on time. Many of the guests commented on how good it was. I would definitely work with 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!!
Chef David was extremely helpful in working with us to create a small private executive team dinner for 20 people at one of our co-worker's homes. The food and service was incredible, and exactly what we were looking. Having never booked an event like this, David was extremely helpful creating a custom menu and providing suggestions to make the most out of the event.
Just a Bite catered a bridal shower that I hosted. I thought they were wonderful to work with and really tried to come up with good options to meet our specific requests. The food arrived on time and was perfectly prepared. My guests loved it! I highly recommend.
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!
Green Eyed Girl in the Kitchen and her team should be your one and only choice for catering your special event! Her attention to detail and professionalism made my son and daughters wedding spectacular! Oh... did I not mention how amazing the food taste... from the chicken and waffle bites, to the crab stuffed mushrooms everything was a hit! She is my new caterer!
We hired Kirk for a black tie 40th birthday celebration in June 2017 in Downtown Chicago (Gold Coast), after surveying a variety of reputable best in class catering companies. We primarily sought faire and service that matched the upscale event we hoped to host for 70 - 85 attendees. We selected Kirk initially based on his responsiveness, accuracy, flexibility and professionalism. He offered full catering services and vendor support, making him the sole point of contact for the event. Due to holding the event at an art gallery, everything from tables, linens, flatware, glasses, cooking appliances, staffing and bartending needed to be supplied. Kirk confidently arranged all needs within an extremely reasonable quote and remained flexible to altering demands throughout the prep period. He customized a menu and cooked a tasting for us, in our home, to meet our expectations. He walked the event space with us and partnered directly with the gallery owner to ensure day of processes ran smoothly. But the wow factor was during the prep and execution of the event! Kirk brought a team of staff to swiftly setup the location in beautiful fashion. Each station was well oriented with artistic design matching the space and event caliber. With little direction, he ensured these settings were eye catching and photogenic. His staffing was AMAZINGLY friendly and outgoing, going above and beyond to bring cheer and personality to ensure all guest needs were met. The presentation and food quality were commendable and guests enjoyed the pace and quantity of the passed and stationed edibles. Even the gallery owner was blown away with Kirk’s talents and partnership and vowed to recommend and utilize Kirk and his team for future events. 5 Star Service and highly recommended!
If you're looking for a great caterer you don't need to look any further! Carol was absolutely awesome to work with and the food was fantastic!! My entire crew enjoyed the meal and complimented Carol on how good it was, they even enjoyed the leftovers today! We will all look forward to Carol catering all our future luncheons!!
Clarissa and her team were professional, flexible, and anticipated our needs as clients. AND, the food was amazing.
Chez Mikey catered a 4-course Holiday luncheon for our Corporate Headquarters, and our Team couldn't have been more pleased! From the excellent customer service we received, to the delicious, beautifully prepared cuisine - Chez Mikey is a top-notch 5-Star caterer. We will most definitely contact Mike and Diana for our next catered event!
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.
I hire Balieys Catering for my mother’s surprise 50th Birthday party. The food and professionalism of the staff were amazing! We even had a little extra food left and guess were fighting over the last of it lol.
Divine Treats & Heavenly Eats is definitely one of the best and well organized catering services you can ask for. Ever since my first experience of DTHE sponsoring one of my college events a few years ago, I knew exactly who I wanted for my reception. Everything from Salmon ,to pasta and even Sweet tea; it is worth your time, your money and will complete your experience. Thank you so much Mrs. Vicki for assisting in completing one of the best day's of our lives
Ari has catered several of my open mic events in Chicago. From her delicious 'Create Your Own Taco's', to her wonderful full flavored jerk & bbq chicken, her food options were great and everyone loved it! 5 Stars!
You catered my daughters wedding. Small intimate affair in our home. It felt like the RITZ CARLTON!!! The food and desserts were amazing. The look of the party was more than what my daughter ever hoped for. Thank you for the amazing experience
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.
BellaRu is wonderful to work with! Maya asks all the right questions and has an amazing attentiveness to ensure your catering is perfect. She even assists with planning the event coordination to ensure your event comes together flawlessly. BellaRu's prices are affordable and the service is professional, personalized, and smooth. I recommend BellaRu Catering for anyone looking for service in the Chicago area!
Three Legged Tacos was perfect for our Volunteer Recognition event! They were able to set up a cooking station in our auditorium and serve fresh, custom order tacos to all of our guests. The food was creative and delicious. We got so many compliments and our guests commented that they would like to have Three Legged Tacos at their event as well! Thanks so much!
Matt was a joy to work with. He had great ideas that fit our budget and really wanted us to have a successful event. Well, our Blue and Gold scout banquet went off without a hitch. The food arrived on time, was set up nicely and there was plenty to go around. Rave reviews from all that attended.
