We had Chef Rich come in and cook for us during our Girly weekend in Chicago. The food was fantastic, and plenty of leftovers. He was on time, and took care of every detail. The timing of each course was perfect. When he was done, the kitchen was spotless. I would definitely recommend Chef Rich, and I hope to have another occasion to use him again! Thank you!
It is difficult to put into words how grateful I am that I found North Island Catering. From the beginning to the end Allen and Christina were wonderful to work with. Allen went above and beyond what a good catering company should do. We needed a caterer for my daughter's wedding. North Island catering was one of the several companies that responded to my request on Thumbtack. When I contacted them they were very helpful and was able to give me a price within our budget. Our menu would consist of fajitas and tacos with all the fixings and would be buffet style setting. From the taste test to the wedding they were very professional and catered to all the dietary needs of our guests. Once we finalized the guest list we decided to do tacos for 50, fajitas for 90 and vegetarian fajitas for 10 people. They were able to accommodate for the vegetarian guests and the gluten free guests. Even when I forgot to mention one of the condiments we wanted Allen was on his toes. I had missed letting him know that we wanted hot peppers on the side. He thought ahead and got them anyways. I contacted him the day before the wedding about the peppers. He informed me that he had already purchased them. I was so impressed that he anticipated our needs ahead of time. They arrived at the reception on time and were all set up in the time frame that they had stated. Allen and his crew were very professional in letting the guests know which foods were vegetarian and which foods were gluten free. I received several comments from guests on how good the food was and how nice it was to have so many options for the different dietary needs of each of the guests. It made the guests feel like they were each thought of individually and that their dietary needs were important to North Island Catering. When everyone was finished eating they packaged up the leftover food for us to take home all without any disturbance to the rest of the reception going on. I was very impressed with how smoothly everything ran and how they helped make my daughter's special day a success. During conversations with Allen and Christina I got the impression that their specialty was Italian food. They did an outstanding job preparing the Mexican food we requested. I feel that they would do an outstanding job in preparing any type of food requested. I would definitely work with this company again in the future.
Ravi and Chic Chef Catering did an awesome job for my daughters reception. He alowed us to customize the menu as we were able to choose from many menus (Indian and Italian). The food and service were outstanding. Will use them again.
The catering went very well. We had the chicken marsala, Italian sausage with sweet peppers, mash potatoes, mostociolli, fresh fruit and grilled vegetables. The chicken was very yummy and simple for the folks that wanted flavor but not spicy. The Italian sausage were a huge hit. Folks commented on the mash potatoes and went back for thirds just for the potatoes alone. The mostociolli was mentally planned for the kids and vegetarians at the party. It was a smidge spicy for the kids but the vegetarians loved it so much they all took the leftovers home. The grilled vegetables were very nice with good flavor, fresh (not frozen) and not mushy. Even the fruit salad was fresh, no mushy or soggy melon, it even had pineapple in it. Overall the food was very good. Joseph arrived very promptly on time. He ended up holding the food because family members got lost coming to the event so that way the food was still hot when they arrived. It was painless. Whenever you book a caterer you always worry about the taste of the food and I picked Joseph based on reviews that commented about the food. The food was freshly prepared and well seasoned. I would use Joseph again.
I've used Just a Bite several times to cater parties. The owner is extremely easy to work with and made great menu suggestions. My events had themes and the food was perfectly matched to the theme. The food was beautifully presented and tasted great. I know things are made from scratch with quality ingredients and you can taste the difference. Nothing makes a hostess feel better than having guests say positive things about the food, and that happens every time I use this caterer. Most importantly, the owner delivered beyond my expectations and stayed within my budget. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this caterer to friends and family.
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
My siblings and I hired Aram for a surprise 25th wedding aniversary dinner for 2. We all live all over the country and could not be with our parents on their special day but Aram made it so. Our parents cant stop raving about how professional and personable Aram is and how his food is exceptional. Aram prepared a gluten free meal that they say was the best food they have ever had. If your thinking about hiring a person chef dont hesitate.. Hire Aram, you wont be disappointed.
One of the best chefs you will find any where.
My fiances 50th birthday party of 11 was fabulous thanks to the fact that I hired Chef Damien. From the first contact he was a pleasure to work with. We wanted a formal 4 course dinner party with French cuisine. He provided a great selection of menu options for all courses. He was great at keeping in touch over the month or more of planning and made me feel very happy and comfortable with progress and planning reports as I was apprehensive!!! His confidence was very calming and much appreciated! He arrived about 5 hours before guests arrival with all of his equipment and set to work. The tuna poke was out of this world and his foie gras dish was simply incredible. He was flexible enough to allow a (pre-chosen) duo of entrees. I had the duck which was the best I have probably ever had, while others had sea bass which was OUT OF THIS WORLD. He was calm, collected, dedicated and did not disappoint. I would highly recommend and hope to hire him again some day!
In everything- Clarissa from Gracious was amazing. From follow ups to working on helping us keep the cost of the fundraiser low. She won over team of community volunteers with food tasting. She helped us think through when we modified the vision of the event . I would recommend her!!!
I had the absolute blind luck to find the lovely Heather and D'Andre of Feast & Imbibe while looking for alternatives to typical "chicken or beef" caterers for my June 2014 wedding. I had already decided that I wanted to do an upscale cocktail reception in lieu of a seated dinner, and had quotes for over $10,000 for 80 people (and this was from a place that wanted to serve quesadillas and fried food as apps--that's fine, but not for ten grand and not at all what I was looking for). I couldn't see spending money like that on food that was impersonal and trite, and I began to look for a private chef or other alternatives to a standard wedding caterer. I honestly and truly feel lucky to have found Feast & Imbibe, as they allowed me to have everything exactly the way I wanted for an extremely reasonable price. You could really taste the thought, love and care in D'Andre's food--for real. I had some ideas in mind in terms of the feel of the menu, but I have to say that Heather and D'Andre totally blew me away and knocked it out of the park. From our first interaction, Heather was warm and professional and extremely honest about everything. I told her what I wanted and what I could spend, and she and D'Andre were willing to work with me to provide the experience I was looking for (and they ended up putting together a reception that was more than I could have asked for) for the price I wanted (I ended up spending a bit more than I envisioned, but it was purely due to MY changes--never experienced any pressure or felt like I was being pushed into anything). Heather was SO SO helpful; seeing as how I was doing most things myself, she offered herself and her services at any point she could to make things easier on me-- advice for other vendors, her own decorations, etc. AND THE FOOD...OMG D'Andre...keep on doin' what you're doin', becuase it's a month later and my guests are still talking about how amazing the food was. The food was so on point, the service was so thoughtful, and the selection was incredible. I was able to impress and please both my foodie friends and my meat and potatoes family--which is a serious feat itself. Everything about the actual day of my wedding was kind of a mess (weather, venue issues, mix-ups out of anyone's control), but the supreme service, hospitality and care that Heather and D'Andre put into catering my event absolutely made up for everything that went wrong. They were able to circumnavigate last minute issues with no problem or loss of cool, and everything down to the waitstaff and decor/signs for the food were top notch. My husband and I truly felt that they had our best interests at heart and put love into what they did for us, and we are eternally grateful. I could not have asked for more, and I will be recommending their services to anyone who will listen until I am blue in the face. Seriously, people, if you want the utmost in professionalism, care, delicious food, value for the $$--please go with Feast & Imbibe. They are amazing to say the least!! I would never even consider working with another caterer.
Kristin catered our annual holiday luncheon this year. It was the first time I was putting on together for the firm, so I really wanted to offer something special. Kristin put together a delicious, gourmet lunch that was a cut above what we have experienced in the past. So many people complimented and thanked me. The portions were generous (we had lots of leftovers) and she worked with us to get something really wonderful with the budget we had to work with. I will definitely use Kristin again!
Food was on time and tasty. Delivery person did a nice job of setting it up. Suggested that there be a little more marinara sauce on the penne, but a small thing - in general, people were very pleased with the food, esp. the shrimp and sausages.
Chez Mikey catered a 4-course Holiday luncheon for our Corporate Headquarters, and our Team couldn't have been more pleased! From the excellent customer service we received, to the delicious, beautifully prepared cuisine - Chez Mikey is a top-notch 5-Star caterer. We will most definitely contact Mike and Diana for our next catered event!
Steve and his team were great to work with - very professional and the food was delicious!
Cheffield Events & Catering has to be one of the best caterers we have hired for the office. The food smelled and tasted amazing. Everyone was going back for seconds and thirds!!! We are a picky bunch, but we will be using Cheffield's in the future. They were prompt, professional and the presentations was great. We loved that they printed up a menu for our small gathering. We would recommend Cheffield Events & Catering for catering, and we hope to do many events with them.
We used J's for a block party and he was great. Even though the weather didn't cooperate, he soldiered on and gave us an amazing meal. The tacos (steak, chicken and pork) were delicious!!! Everyone loved it. I would definitely recommend J's for any of your catering needs.
I have a close relationship with many chefs around Chicago, a number of whom are Michelin Star holders, and Mark Avila is right at the top with these chefs. He’s well rounded, creative and has the insight and components to run a high end restaurant. He’s not just a masterful chef but also a creator of memorable experiences
Chef Taryn has cooked for multiple dinner parties for me. Her creative cuisine pleases many types, definitely foodies. She’s able to cook many styles such as modern American, southern, Thai, Indian etc. She also has great knowledge of wine and pairing it with food. She can make amazing desserts as well. I’ve seen her do parties of 4 and up to parties of 50. She’s the best! I would trust her to cook for the my most important guest.
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!
