Our menu consisted of Roast Beef Italian, Lemon Butter Chicken, Mostaccioli, Rice Pilaf, American Potato Salad, Fresh Fruit Salad, and Cucumber in Sour Cream. The food was out of this World, our guest had nothing but awesome raves for it. Everything was homemade, and fresh! Working with Joe Burby was the best experience I have had in a long time. He told about the different dishes and suggested some options. I would recommend "Inglenook Catering" to anyone for any affair, Dawn

The catering service Just a Bite is owned & operated by a family who has decades of experience in the Chicagoland food industry and top restaurants. They know every recipe from any restaurant and probably make it better! They've catered small birthday parties and larger surprise events for us during the last 10 years. Everything is always delicious, affordable and easy to eat while guests are milling around. They bring everything and are dressed appropriately for an event even during set up. Super friendly owner who is easy to deal with if you have guests with finicky dietary requirements or substitutions. My advice is to get a price. Just a Bite has the price we need while still wowing our guests who always ask for the name of the caterer.

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!

We hired Ravi and his team to cater our wedding and they were incredible. We had a great tasting with Ravi and his head chef and we knew their food would be a hit. When we arrived at cocktail hour, the appetizers were already gone! People loved them. Thankfully, Ravi and his servers had set some aside for the wedding party without us even asking. His staff worked hard serving our guests and tending bar. They were fun and incredibly hard working. We would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a creative catering company that is capable of customizing an unforgettable menu. The whole process was very easy and Ravi and his company were able to take care of everything we needed without hesitation. Thank you!

Chef David, I want to thank you for doing such an amazing job for our sons back lawn wedding reception. The food was fabulous, as was the service. All our guests raved how wonderful the food was. Your staff, Mike, Jasmine, Michelle and you CHEF were so hardworking and accommodating and ready to make everything perfect. We will never forget this special day in their lives and you helped make it that way. Everyone should have a Chef David 24-7 in my book. We highly recommend Lakeshore Private Chef & Catering to anyone planning a large or intimate event. Honestly it could not have been better.

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.

Divine Treats & Heavenly Eats is definitely one of the best and well organized catering services you can ask for. Ever since my first experience of DTHE sponsoring one of my college events a few years ago, I knew exactly who I wanted for my reception. Everything from Salmon ,to pasta and even Sweet tea; it is worth your time, your money and will complete your experience. Thank you so much Mrs. Vicki for assisting in completing one of the best day's of our lives
