Chefs were on time, very relaxed, kind, and professional. They did not rush us and make everyone feel comfortable. The food was amazing and they made more than enough. It was a fantastic experience!

I am a few weeks late posting this review but I simply had to make time to say what a WONDERFUL company North Island catering is!! We not only had the very BEST service from the moment I sent request looking for a catering company for our event, but the food, service, bartenders, chefs, waiters and waitresses all did a phenomenal job start to finish! The owners were always a phone call or email away and answered my calls almost on the first ring every single time! We had meetings before our event to be sure we were all on the same page with every detail and they certainly did not miss a thing! We were hosting our Daughter's going away party into the Coast Guard. We held the party outdoors on our dock at our harbor downtown Chicago. We had to have hundreds of guests throughout the evening and every single guest mentioned to us how delicious the food was and the great service they received from the chef, waiter, waitresses and bartender! We will certainly hire this company each and every time we host a party! They made this event go so smoothly that it was so nice to have a stress free party and enjoy time with all of our guests without having any of the stress or headaches that can come along with parties that size. I must send a HUGE THANK YOU to Alan, Christina, and their FANTASTIC staff at "North Island catering"!! Paulette C

Dynamite team of chefs for our outdoor event hosted at our home. The chefs prepared a seafood boil and bbq for 40 guests, all the food cooked to perfection. Looking forward to working with Chic Chef Catering again in the future.

Chef David was very easy to work with, prompt, made my guests and myself some fantastic food and cleaned up afterwards. This was my first experience with a private chef in my home and I loved every minute of it. I am about to enjoy the leftovers from the dinner right now and I can't wait. Thank you 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!

Tammy was our chef for an in-home dinner party on a Sunday afternoon in February. 12 adults, and all of us thoroughly loved the entire experience. All of our guests contacted us afterwards to say how much fun they had and how wonderful the food was. From the first contact, Tammy impressed me right away by providing a large menu of items to choose from in the various course offerings. It printed out to over 5 pages of appetizers, salads/soups, entrees, sides, and desserts. The hardest part was choosing, but it sure was nice to see so many choices as you want to accommodate 12 guests. We picked 4 appetizers, a terrific wedge salad with blue cheese/bacon dressing, prime rib, 3 side dishes, and her homemade turtle pie. The prime rib was perfect, and several said the turtle pie was the best dessert they'd ever had. My personal favorite was her prosciutto wrapped scallop appetizer.......wow they were fantastic. Tammy arrived 2 hours before our guests with every single thing needed to prepare the meal. Several bags of food, serving plates, various kitchen tools, mixer, fondue server, spices, milk/eggs, etc....... We used our own tableware and plates even though she offered to bring that as well. I was impressed with how clean she works, and when she left the kitchen was perfect. She even placed all the leftovers into ziplock bags for us to keep and reheat. I highly recommend Tammy for an in-home dinner party, and the next time we do this we'll hire her again.

Chef Kirk cooked our entire Thanksgiving dinner this year and it was THE most enjoyable meal I've had! I had had a surgery so was unable to shop, cook or lift anything so we decided to use an in home chef. The entire experience was wonderful. Chef Kirk was professional, personable, interactive, happy, funny and all in all a wonderful addition to our day. I woukd 100% recommend him for any event you have. He also made chestnut sausage and sage stuffing at my request, it's a family favorite. Nothing was too hard for him to do and he cooked and served the meal with class, style and a smile. We are booking him for our Christmas dinner because it was so fun to have him in our home.

Contacted Chef Carol to do an after work networking event and cocktail party for 100 people. She presented a selection of menu items that would work within a very short period of time from out initial meeting. On the day of the event she arrived promptly with all the supplies needed and handled every detail perfectly. We received raved reviews from the attendees about all the food but especially the flat breads. Chef Carol took care of all the clean up also and let the event spotless as well. A true professional who delivers quality food, we cannot wait for our next event to hire her back.

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.

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.

Josh is an incredibly talented chef and a great parson to have around. My family and I have enjoyed everything he's cooked for us and we continue to be amazed at his creativity and versatility. Josh's food is so flavorful and delicious, it's easy to forget how healthy everything is. Having Josh cook for us has been a great learning experience too. He's taught us a lot about about healthy living and inspired us to make better choices, even when we eat out.

I would like to thank you for catering my birthday party. Your menu is impressive and I was happy to see you were able to cook meal choices not on your menu. Your prices was very reasonable for the amount of people you prepared food for. Everyone that attended said your food was great and I will agree.You and your staff were very professional and showed true meaning to serves with a smile. I was impressed, I have your card, I will be in touch.

She was very responsive with communication and very professional through everything. We would definitely recommend working with Mya with any event. She makes you feel like her family and is always willing to cater to anything you need. Great personality and great communication!

So happy we chose Chef Val and her staff for our corporate event! The presentation was wonderful, they arrived on time, and the cost was better than any other proposal we received. Everyone loved their food, but the biggest hits were the Deviled Eggs, the Garlic Parmesan Chicken Bites, and the Triple Chocolate and Red Corvette Velvet Cupcakes! I would definitely and use them again for our next event. Thanks so much Chef Val, you were a delight to work with!

Aakruti Mahendra is an excellent personal chef. Great personality. She helps you plan your menu by giving you suggestions. Shops, cooks and cleans up. I like that she leaves you written instructions on how to heat the various entrees. Also, labeling each item and storing them in containers that can be used to heat your food.
