It was a great experience with Chef Rich's team. Very good food, nice people made for a relaxing lunch for my husbands birthday.
The delivery was on time, easy to work with, and the taco bar was excellent. Everyone was asking who catered lunch and they came back for more. I will order again.
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.
David catered a Chinese New Year party for us--approx. 50 guests. He did appetizers and buffet dinner--food was delicious and we got many compliments. Prep, serving and clean-up were terrific. Would definitely use David again.
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!
Lindsey was a pleasure to work with. We hired her to provide meals during a particularly busy week. She offered us healthy and delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner options that we thoroughly enjoyed! She was also very accommodating of both our tastes, avoiding certain foods we didn't like, and our schedules when it came to arranging delivery of the meals. We would highly recommend her and look forward to working with her again in the future!
We had Kirk prepare and serve lunch four our office 3 days a week for about 5 months. He was extremely professional and the food was great. He never repeated a meal, so we always got to experience new creative dishes. I would definitely recommend his services!!
Food with Flair catered my business Thanksgiving Lunch. The overall response was nothing less than superb! Carol was extremely easy to deal with, professional, and accommodating! Highly recommend and look forward to working with Food with Flair again
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.
Kristin catered our annual holiday luncheon this year. It was the first time I was putting on together for the firm, so I really wanted to offer something special. Kristin put together a delicious, gourmet lunch that was a cut above what we have experienced in the past. So many people complimented and thanked me. The portions were generous (we had lots of leftovers) and she worked with us to get something really wonderful with the budget we had to work with. I will definitely use Kristin again!
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.
Josh was the head chef for our wedding of about 215 people and he absolutely killed it! He took care of everything, a real full service experience, so we could focus on more important things, like getting married! The food he made was absolutely incredible. Marinated chicken breast, avocado salad, chipotle roasted potatoes, you name it! Many wedding guests personally told us that it was the best wedding meal they had ever had. Some even said it was one of their favorite meals ever, and wanted the recipe. I give a complete recommendation for Josh. His professionalism, his talent, and his personality really make him one of a kind.
Ari from Ari's Amazing Creations did a wonderful job at our event. She provided cooking demonstrations of heart healthy lunch and smoothie recipe's and also provided a handout of the recipe's for our patient to take home. She was friendly and entertaining while presenting and everyone loved the demonstrations.
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 am so thankful and pleased with Baileys Catering. I had the pleasure of obtaining their service for a graduation brunch at my home. I must say the quality of the food and service was excellent. They set the tone and ambiance for my family upon their arrival to my home.
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!
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.
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!
We used J's for a block party and he was great. Even though the weather didn't cooperate, he soldiered on and gave us an amazing meal. The tacos (steak, chicken and pork) were delicious!!! Everyone loved it. I would definitely recommend J's for any of your catering needs.
