Incredible and Stress Free!Chef Mancini's team provided an outstanding four course meal for my holiday dinner. Their efficient handling of everything (prep, plating, serving, cleaning) made it a dream for me to focus on hosting and enjoying my guest. Truly turned my home dinner into a personal 5 star experience. Looking forward to hosting a future event with him soon.

We used North Island Catering for my husband's retirement party. The food and service was outstanding. We had the pulled pork, lasagna and Ceasar salad. They provided more than enough food to serve our 30 guests. The food was all homemade. All of the guests raved about it! The next party we host will be easy as far as food, because we will be using North Island caterers for sure!!!! If you're looking for good food and outstanding service, Dave time looking and call Northd Island Catering!!!

Ravi's menu offerings were the most interesting of the local caterers I looked at before I chose him to cater my parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary. The food was delicious, very high quality, and arrived right on time. Many of the guests commented on how good it was. I would definitely work with Chic Chef Catering again.

I happened to find Inglenook Catering and Joe on a quick search for local caterers. I wanted to try a different caterer with a different menu. My daughter picked the menu, and it was pretty traditional....Italian beef, Italian sausage, fried chicken, mostacolli, green beans almandine, and scalloped potatoes. Truly, I wanted to explore other items on the menu, but since I offered and it was her choice, that's what I went with. The Italian beef and sausage were homemade and definitely amazing! Great flavor and seasonings! The fried chicken was delicious as well! Everything was warmed and ready to serve. Would definitely order from Joe again! Thank you so very much for the prompt communication and coming to assist with the drop off. My guests throughly enjoyed your catering Joe, and I will definitely recommend you to my friends! Would love to try other entrees next time!!

Loretta was absolutely amazing as well as her small bites. Perfect for any occasion or parties! She catered for our Holiday Cocktail Party last weekend and we couldn't have asked for more. Everyone kept complimenting the food, and couldn't stop munching. She is so flexible and accommodating, and is more than willing to work with anything that you need. We are having her cater another Holiday party that we have coming up this weekend as well :)

We hired Cater-2-U Catering LLC for our Thanksgiving dinner and it was great. We had twenty-five guests and everyone raved about the food, especially the turkey and ceviche. Chef Mike and his assistant arrived right on time, set everything up, and the rest was a breeze. We have already referred him to a friend who needs a caterer for Thanksgiving. We will definitely hire Chef Mike again!!

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.

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!

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.

I was searching to hire a personal chef since I was to fly back home for the holidays but found out I had a bad herniated disc causing me severe pain in my lower back and leg which threw a wrench in my home for the holidays.. anyhow..did a search on Google and Thumbtack...services popped up and I did a search near my parents residence and found Karen through TLC... Karen was amazing to work with and understood my situation completely.. She prepared a wonderful meal for my Dad's birthday which was a gift on Christmas Eve.. Both my parents loved the overall dinner and Karen too! I would highly recommend Karen in the NW Indiana area if you are looking to hire a personal chef!

Josh was the head chef for our wedding of about 215 people and he absolutely killed it! He took care of everything, a real full service experience, so we could focus on more important things, like getting married! The food he made was absolutely incredible. Marinated chicken breast, avocado salad, chipotle roasted potatoes, you name it! Many wedding guests personally told us that it was the best wedding meal they had ever had. Some even said it was one of their favorite meals ever, and wanted the recipe. I give a complete recommendation for Josh. His professionalism, his talent, and his personality really make him one of a kind.

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.

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.

Taryn is a well organized, professional, and highly talented chef. Her food is fresh, creative, and absolutely delicious! She knows how to make healthy yet decadent food, but if you want to experience the full range of her cooking, let her use butter! I've used her for my last two dinner parties and will not go back to catering or any other private chef again. She has them all beat.

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.

Priscilla's cooking is one of the few gems I look forward to. As someone who has dined at very expensive restaurants and appreciates quality food, Priscilla's food still stands among the top ranks. I now seek for any opportunity to use to employ her culinary skills and catering abilities. If you ever get a taste for her meals, you will not be disappointed!

Look no further for the utmost professionalism and the best quality food/catering! I cannot rave enough about Michael! I hosted my baby shower at my townhouse in Lincoln Park. Most of my family is on the east coast, so the guest list was only about 20 people. I knew I didn't want myself or another guest to have to worry about cooking and a few of my guests have specific dietary restrictions so I wasn't comfortable ordering from a restaurant. One of my friends works at the law firm where Michael is the chef and passed along his information, letting me know he also caters these types of private events. Plus, she kept RAVING about how awesome his food is. Michael was so refreshing to work with from start to finish. He was responsive, detail oriented, and extremely professional (not to mention so friendly!) We had an initial phone meeting to discuss menu ideas, dietary restrictions, and theming. He got back to me with a preliminary menu (including a full ingredient list) and questions regarding what my kitchen was capable of (how big my oven is, how many burners I have, etc.) As I said, very detail oriented. He also came up with thoughtful, creative ideas for my friend's dietary restrictions so they could enjoy the "fun" treats, too! One of my favorite gluten free treats were his dark chocolate coconut tarts- totally delicious. The day of the shower he arrived right on time with everything we discussed for the final menu. He was professional and completely unobtrusive. He ensured all of the food was the correct temperature when served. He even came prepared with ingredient cards to put out with the food. Everything was DELICIOUS. But I think the best part of hiring Michael was that he left my kitchen SPOTLESS! I swear it was cleaner than when he started. Seriously, look no further for in-home catering. I already know who will do Baby Rose's first birthday party. I swear, Michael is Chicago's best kept secret.

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!
