I liked the fact that there was flexibility in the menu. When my chefs and server arrived, I was put at ease by their professionalism. I really enjoyed my own dinner party.

To say that Mike and Derrick were amazing would be an understatement. They are friendly, personable and very talented chefs. The food was fresh, cooked perfectly and delicious beyond delicious. The presentation was gorgeous and they even cleaned up after. Highly recommend these guys and will definitely use them again and again.

I hired Lakeshore Private Chef & Catering to cater a joint 40th and 85th birthday celebration. I couldn't have been happier with the results. The food was delicious and Chef David was a delight to work with. If I ever needed to do this again, I would definitely hire this company again.

Our scholars are learning how to prepare easy recipes using fresh vegetables and fruits. Chef Karen has done an excellent job introducing our scholars to the proper techniques of chopping vegetables, mixing ingredients and creating mouth watering dishes. She has our younger scholars learn to create their own easy to mix tasting. Our scholars cooked up some delicious Tomato Soup. They chopped the vegetables themselves and were able to enjoy the fruits of their labor.

This was my first time hiring a caterer, and I was not disappointed. This was also my first time using Thumbtack. Had never even heard of it before googling “caterers near me”. Carol of Food with Flair did a wonderful job catering a family outdoor BBQ at my home for my dad’s 90th birthday. We had 25 people in attendance, and many commented on how good the food was. She was very responsive from the moment she and I were matched through Thumbtack, all the way through my event. She helped plan the meal, making suggestions on food items that were popular at other BBQs she had catered; arrived promptly the day of the event with much of the food prep completed and the remainder completed once she arrived; provided the warming trays, serving dishes, and serving utensils; grilled the meat (hamburgers and chicken) on my Weber grill; set up the serving table; had the meal ready in a timely fashion; put away leftovers for me; and left my kitchen clean. She also was able to work with dietary restrictions. She offered to provide paper goods and make arrangements for other supplies (e.g. canopy), which I declined. She brought two pineapple upside down cakes (my Dad’s favorite), and because we had neglected to discuss which of us would provide the candles, she decided to play it safe and brought a “9” & a “0” candle for one of the cakes. For the other cake she had a friend create a diecut that read “Happy 90th Birthday” in colors that coordinated with the cake. It was a nice, thoughtful surprise. While I had thought about asking whether she offered tastings, I didn’t due to the small size of my party; the short time frame between booking the party and the event itself; and her experience as an executive chef. I trusted that the food would be good, and it was. But I can’t share whether she offers tastings or not. My husband and I were very pleased with the service Carol provided and would definitely use her again.

We hired Tracy to be part of a two chef team for a baby shower for 70+ guests at our home and were extremely pleased. She was punctual, very helpful and was not hesitant to do whatever needed to be done. We will certainly hire her again.

We recently hired them for our office holiday party, and it was a HUGE HIT! Joe was super responsive and answered all of my questions. They were even able to accommodate vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free diets for our group. They showed up early to set up and were extremely professional. Everyone loved the surprise of having a taco truck at the party! Guests were standing outside freezing just to get more tacos! Thank you to Joe and his crew for an amazing event! We look forward to having you guys at our next party! We highly recommend them!

Chef DiMaria made a golf group of 10 a WONDERFUL dinner. The menu consisted of antipasto, salad, lasagne, chicken vesuvio, and cannoli. Wine and Sambuca was included in the price. The food was FABULOUS!! Frank did all of the clean up. It was a great way for a group to have a casual evening of fine food and socializing. It was one of the many highlights of our trip. I would do this again in a heartbeat.

Chef Val was truly a gem. She was very concerned about my event and that matters to me. She and her assistant were so pleasant and my guest and I enjoyed the food so much. We had a vegetarian menu, and Im not a vegan. However, my guest and I asked for seconds and thirds of Chef Val's delectable food. From the vegetarian gumbo to the sweet potato veggie burger and to top it all off for dessert vegetarian lemon pound cake and apple crisp, Delicious. Once again great service, great food, and lots of fun.

We hired Girl and the Kitchen for a small party. The food was amazing, service was great and they cleaned up the kitchen after. Also for those that enjoy cooking or want to learn, the chefs are more than happy to share their knowledge.

    I really never write reviews, but Alvin Yu and his team were amazing! Our guests really raved about all the food. (I need to get his recipe for the Asiago Crusted Chicken Breast - so tender!). And his servers and sous chefs really made the event. Their attention to detail and lovely personalities really made the atmosphere. They were so helpful beyond what I could have even asked for. We had 2 passed appetizers, then salad, 4 entrees and 3 sides served family style for 44 guests and everything was delicious and well timed. Alvin totally understood what I wanted and was able to seamlessly accommodate special dietary needs. He was very responsive to all my questions throughout the planning process and seriously made the event really so easy on me! And they really made our guests of honor feel very special, too. They really go above and beyond. A huge thank you to Fyusion Dining for making our event such a success!

    I placed a catering order for a brunch and not only was I, but my guests were beyond happy about the food. Everything was full of flavor, great presentation, we definitely went back for seconds and thirds. Chef Allen was very responsive, professional, and went above and beyond to make sure my order was absolutely perfect. He even assisted with helping me set a few non-food related things up. I am definitely looking forward to working with him again on future events.

      Working with Dillon was such a great experience, I can’t rave about him enough. His menu and ingredient selections are always thoughtful, and most importantly delicious! He takes pride in his work and I can’t wait to recommend him to all of my friends!

      We had Jeanne stay at our house several times for a week at a time. The house was cleaner than when we left, she had baked cookies for us and the laundry was done. Our two miniature schnauzers, who normally don't like any outsiders, took to her right away. On successive visits they ran right to her. She was an absolute delight.

        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.

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
