We had an amazing holiday party with all of our friends and family over this December. Carol brought the "wow!" with her artful presentation and delicious appetizers, entrees AND desserts! Our guests still talk about how much they loved all of the food. Carol and her team had such professionalism and took care of everything from prep, setup and cleanup. Thanks Carol! We hope to use you again soon for our daughter's wedding shower this Spring!
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.
There is nothing that needed to be improved. Veronica far exceeded my expectations. She turned my living room into a five star restaurant. The ambiance was intimate, romantic, and simply stunning. The food was tasty. The presentation was inviting and delivered well. The waitstaff and Veronica were welcoming and friendly.I would employ her services again and recommend her others.
Adreain made my event memorable. My guest as well as myself was very pleased her professionalism and expertise. I would definitely use her for future events. Thank you again Adreain. Best wishes to you in your future endeavors Renita
Over the years, I witnessed Natasha Vittis talents as a professional chef/caterer on many occasions. I have seen her cater all types of events from small and intimate to large and more formal. I have noted a few of these occasions below. I was a guest at a sit-down farewell dinner party for 16 people that Natasha catered and served with her colleague. She worked closely with the hosts to determine the menu based on the hosts style and budget. She shopped, cooked, served the meal, and cleaned up afterwards. The hosts were able to enjoy themselves thoroughly while we all enjoyed a delicious meal. An acquaintance of mine used Natasha to cater a lobster boil for a 100 people. With support staff, Natasha executed the entire meal. This was not a small undertaking and the hosts were very pleased with the results. I have used Natashas services to cater a brunch for my sons birthday party. Natasha worked closely with me to finalize a menu. On the day of the party, she arrived early to prep the dishes and stayed during the party to replenish the food as needed. Afterwards, she helped clean up. The party was another success. In additional to Natashas talents as a chef, she has an energetic and positive personality that makes her a pleasure to work with. Not only is she committed to meeting her clients satisfaction, she maintains a calm and professional demeanor, which is so critical in this type of business.
Great waitstaff, loved my sweet table
We had a party and decided that we wanted a bartender. So glad we came across Carol! She is so professional and super personable. She did such a great job! I highly recommend her and would definitely have her back when we have another big party!
I had a private party of 75 people and the Bartending/waitstaff were beyond professional. They were attentative and handled their jobs with pleasure. Would definitely hire them again.
Tristan organized and coordinated my event of 300 guest for my Mothers 50th birthday party. Her service was wonderful from start to finish to finding me a venue and vendors to decoration and her wait staff and buffet service. She is the best from the beginning she took my vision and transformed it into more than I could imagine for my Mothers day! She customized favors, a sweet table and candy buffet.
Iv used Mona's special 2wice. Once for a birthday party for my parents anniversary. She arrived early, had everything I asked for, even the special bottle of wine that my parents requested. Her and her bartender set up fast. The special cocktails she crafted and named just for my mom n dad we're amazing. After the party they made sure they picked up everything and left everything in the same manner it was before they got there. The second time I used Mona's slecials was for my birthday party. I had a rick and roll tgeam and she prepped the bar stations to fit right in. The menus of rockin cocktails were tasty and she had somthin for every drinker (wiskey vodka tequila and run) . I had 2bars and both bartender Mona and Gwen did a amazing job kept my party "rockin" and again made sure they left their space very clean n tidy before they left. I can't wait for my next event so I can use them again!! Great price amazing service I WILL BE BOOKING THEM AGAIN
Thank you, Sandra! You really came to my rescue! I thought hosting a baby shower for my niece would be easy but I so wrong! She came to my rescue finding a delicious caterer, scrumptious and beautiful deserts and the decorations were over the top! She came to my house and helped me plan out where to put everything for a better flow, from the gift table, munchies, lunch , deserts and gift opening. I never thought I could have fit it all into my home! Rave reviews from the guest of honor and all that attended and I actually was able to enjoy the party too!!!!!
I have been enjoying the delicious food from Danny's On Douglas for going on 25 years now going back to when they were known as Danny's Pizza located in a storefront on McLean Blvd over on Elgin's west side. For a long time now I have been ordering my Pizza with carmelized onions and pepperoni and it's oh so very good! But I truly love cheese-only, well-done and pie-cut. Most recently, my friends and I have ordered their lip-smacking Fried Chicken & BBQ Ribs combo. The French Fries were perfectly crunchy and the Cole Slaw tasted freshly made. The waitstaff and bartenders were attentive and efficient and a lot of fun to be around. They seemed to enjoy their job. I highly recommend Danny's on Douglas! Mr. DJ
