Allen and his wife are two amazing people to work with! I took a shot on thumbtack for my daughters wedding (170 guests) and connected with them. They were absolutely wonderful. This guy is a REAL PRO! Met our gluten free needs, wowed us with great ideas, came in with a dedicated staff and a stunning display, everyone raved, and it was all done within our budget and best of all, NO SURPRISES. I highly and confidently recommend them! So happy with every aspect of North Island Catering!

Ravi at Chic Chef Catering was excellent! The food was delicious and warm when served. He and his staff were very professional and punctual, making sure everyone was taken care of and that dinner was cleaned up at the end. He and his staff were great, and I would certainly recommend them!

We used Just a Bite to cater our Baby Shower and it was fantastic! Loretta was quick to respond to questions and made the process simple and free of hassle. The food received rave reviews from our guests and the presentation was absolutely fantastic. The small bites were perfect for an afternoon party and kept everyone full. Not to mention the bites themselves were delicious. The tuna spoons were a huge hit! We will definitely be using Just a Bite for future events! Highly recommended!

My experience with Cater-2-U catering was great. Mike was easy to work with and allowed me to enjoy my party and not worry about a thing when it came to all the delicious food he provided. My party of 25 people all had positive things to say, and all left full and happy. I plan to work with Mike and his team in the future. My menu was a good variety of proteins and flavors (Mike came up with all of it) making my job very easy... to eat. Veggie enchilada egg rolls Chicken and waffles Ceviche Cups Chili Pepper Lime Shrimp Salad Braised Beef, Mushroom, and Spinach Crostini

I have used Chef Aram Reed for 3 dinner parties in the last year and have alway been extremely impressed by the food and the service. The food is extremely delicious and elegantly displayed. By the end of the night, it seems like all my guests want to know the name of my caterer. Aram also brings well trained helpers who seem to be able to read my mind on what needs to be done before, during and after the party. I highly recommend Chef Aram and his team!

We hired Kirk for a black tie 40th birthday celebration in June 2017 in Downtown Chicago (Gold Coast), after surveying a variety of reputable best in class catering companies. We primarily sought faire and service that matched the upscale event we hoped to host for 70 - 85 attendees. We selected Kirk initially based on his responsiveness, accuracy, flexibility and professionalism. He offered full catering services and vendor support, making him the sole point of contact for the event. Due to holding the event at an art gallery, everything from tables, linens, flatware, glasses, cooking appliances, staffing and bartending needed to be supplied. Kirk confidently arranged all needs within an extremely reasonable quote and remained flexible to altering demands throughout the prep period. He customized a menu and cooked a tasting for us, in our home, to meet our expectations. He walked the event space with us and partnered directly with the gallery owner to ensure day of processes ran smoothly. But the wow factor was during the prep and execution of the event! Kirk brought a team of staff to swiftly setup the location in beautiful fashion. Each station was well oriented with artistic design matching the space and event caliber. With little direction, he ensured these settings were eye catching and photogenic. His staffing was AMAZINGLY friendly and outgoing, going above and beyond to bring cheer and personality to ensure all guest needs were met. The presentation and food quality were commendable and guests enjoyed the pace and quantity of the passed and stationed edibles. Even the gallery owner was blown away with Kirk’s talents and partnership and vowed to recommend and utilize Kirk and his team for future events. 5 Star Service and highly recommended!

Damien catered a 60th birthday party for me. He served an authentic Mexican meal with freshly made salsas, carne asaga with tortillas and all the trimmings including his own special margaritas!! Damien was exceptionally easy to work with. He anticipated what I needed and stayed well within budget.

Feast & Imbibe did an incredible job catering my wedding. Everyone was talking about how amazing the food was, and it honestly was the best wedding food, or food for that matter, that I’ve ever had. Heather and her team were so helpful and really walked us through the whole process. I mean, I’ve never planned a wedding before, or even a party for 200 people. Everyone at F&I was personable and attentive. They really made our day seamless and easy. I thought I’d be so stressed, but Heather & Christina, made sure I worried about nothing. They thought of everything!

I was very pleased with the catering process from Kitchfix. Ashley was very responsive and helpful throughout the ordering process and the food was very to most of our staff's liking. We ordered the Rosemary Beef, Falafel, Maple Shallot Chicken Breast, Caramelized Apple and Walnut Salad, and had sides including green beans, cauliflower and broccoli, and a cauliflower rice. All prepared and executed well.

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.

HIRE THEM. Seriously, from start to finish, ChefField was so so great. The food is very reasonably priced, absolutely delicious (we had the Mediterranean package), and the staff is really good at working with your budget. Set up was on time, professional, and courteous without being intrusive as our guests were enjoying cocktails in the same space dinner was being set up. Elaine and the entire team were so friendly and professional; it's the easiest party I've ever planned thanks to them. Thank you for a great event!

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.

I had the pleasure of working with Chef Taryn on two different occasions. The first occasion was for a dinner party and I enjoyed that experience so much I hired her to cater an event for me as well. She is incredibly skillful in culinary arts and it was a delight to work with her throughout each event. Her ability to talk me through each course and deliver a meal that far exceeded all of my expectations was truly incredible. I highly suggestion hiring this talented professional Chef, I will again and again!!

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!

My Friends and family gathering are always a reason to have My Girls Soul Food and Barbecue on hand. Ms. Loretta is the best when it comes to Soul food and my all time favorite is her Mixed Greens. I never get tired of them. If you are looking for a meal that will make you smile from ear to ear, this is the 5 star Soul Food Caterer of Choice!
