They were here early! Food was outstanding. My guests thought they were all nice and so did I. Never had a better catering experience
We used Just A Bite for our son's wedding in Wheaton held at a local church with 125 guests. We coordinated everything long distance as we live in Minnesota. Loretta was super responsive and a delight to work with on all details and questions. Everyone raved about the appetizers and there was plenty for all. Her prices are very reasonable for the quality and quantity provided. Great selections to choose from. I would highly recommend her catering services.
Contacted Inglenook Catering-Lockport Joseph Burby. A family gathering for around 20 plus. Joe was extremely helpful with suggestions with the menu. The food and all the food was fresh. The menu items that should have been warm/hot were exactly as advertised. The amount of food was more than adequate. And probably more importantly the food was delicious. The delivery was on time and Joe assisted with the setup. Joe was friendly and professional. Inglenook Catering jumps to the top of our list for planning any event in the future. Our sincere thanks to Joseph Burby and Inglenook Catering.
Catering date hasn't come up yet, so can only rate on communication and planning portion
Awesome Awesome catering experience. Ravi recently catered my baby shower for approximately 25-30 people. The food was fresh tasting, delicious and most of all the service was IMPECCABLE!! Ravi and his team (Anna) arrived on time, setup all the food, helped service the guests with their drinks, food, etc. All together, it was a top notch experience. We will most definitely use Ravi again!!!
Mike and Matt did birthday party for us at our home, catering for 30 people. Service was very professional and I would recommend them for any next party. Thanks you Mike and Matt!
I contacted Allen after reading many of his outstanding reviews on Thumbtack. He so impressed me with his communication and confidence that I chose North Island Catering to handle an outdoor corporate event for about 200 people with very little lead time. Throughout the very short planning time, he guided me through menu options and advice about party rentals. Even when I threw him a curveball and some last minute changes, he was never anything but positive and encouraging. Even before our event I knew that I would have nothing to worry about. I was 100% confident that he would make sure our event was enjoyable and successful. And I was right- it turned out perfectly. There were so many compliments about the food! Everyone loved the BBQ brisket, the pulled pork and the grilled salmon. The sides, appetizers and desserts were also extremely tasty and fresh. If I had to think of one negative thing it would have to be that there was too MUCH food! But that meant everyone had delicious leftovers for lunch the next day. I’m glad we had our event on a Thursday night so everyone could enjoy the food the next day. We really appreciated it. I recommend Allen and Christina to anyone looking for a true professional and guaranteed good food. They strive to please and will bend over backwards to make sure your event is great. In my opinion it was also an extremely good value for the price. I look forward to using them again for future events.
My experience working with Carol was amazing. The food was fabulous, the service outstanding and the overall experience was top notch. My guests were just raving over the food, the presentation and how special it made my party. I highly recommend Carol for your catering needs. You won't be disappointed.
Everything was perfect. All guests commented on how delicious the food was. The staff left the premises as clean as they found them . I would definitely have them cater a future event.
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!
David catered a baptism party for 15 guests. He did BBQ dinner. Everything was tasty. Prep, serving and clean-up were terrific. I recommend Lakeshore Private Chef & Catering and David Leigh.
Bailey's Catering is on point with being on time, food set up and decor. Chef Bailey cares about the quality of food and most importantly the client.
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!
We can't say enough good things about Maya and her team at BellaRu. We first contacted her in April 2017 for a tasting. We probably should have been more prepared when we arrived but Maya was completely professional and helped us go through our event and what we may have overlooked or not thought to include. She helped us with family and friends who were vegetarian, gluten free and dairy free. During our walk through she went above and beyond catering by helping us with logistics, floor plans, timeline, signage, cake cutting and everything else we could have potentially forgotten. Her team was courteous and professional, they set up on time and had our four courses out exactly on schedule, the food was delicious and the take down at the end of the night was quick and unobtrusive. She even offered us a ride after the wedding when we realized we had no way to get to the hotel with some large items. Thank you so much Maya for all your hard work. Our wedding weekend is still being talked about and was considered a huge hit thanks in no small part to Maya and BellaRu.
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.
