Wedding and Event Catering
The overall experience was exceptional and working with Maya was truly an amazing experience! The staff was professional and the food was delicious! Everything about the service provided was memorable and would recommend them to anyone needing a quality caterer. They took the stress off and allowed us to focus on the wedding. I can’t express how much I appreciate their service and how we were able to enjoy the wedding. Again, a big thank you to BellaRu Catering!Apr 15, 2018Verified
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!Sep 18, 2017Verified
My husband and I worked with Mya through Chic Chef Catering and loved her immediately! She was really amazing to work with and helped a lot with our budget. 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!Jul 25, 2017
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.Aug 3, 2017
Wedding and Event Catering
I hired Maya and her team for an office reception. I was a bit crunched with time, but Maya was able to come up with an excellent menu and all of the other details we needed (bartender, tables, linens, etc). The event was on a super cold day, but Maya and her team came through, set up with plenty of time, the food was excellent and everyone was so fun and professional, not to mention the pricing was very competitive. Highly recommend! I will hire them again!Jan 31, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have some basic pricing, but mostly I build custom menus for each event, so it can change up or down rather quickly.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to either meet in person for the 1st meeting or over the phone. After that there are lots of emails and text messages before our next meeting.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Culinary degree. I have almost 15 yrs real world restaurant experience in every position imaginable. And about 6 years experience in event planning and catering.
