We hired Chef Rich and his team to cater my husband's 40th birthday party. His team serviced 60 of my guests. The full catering service included delivery/pickup of rental equipment, setup , clean up, servers, & a bartendar. They're service made the day/night enjoyable as they took care of everything including picking up the ice, mixers, etc. All i had to do was ask. The food they prepared was delicious, we had a combination of meat appetizers and vegetarian appetizers. The guests thoroughly enjoyed the food. The only thing i would have changed was to have the servers pass out the food more consistently to my guests rather than having it placed on a table in the corner as it quickly got cold and perhaps didn't taste as good as it would have hot/warm. Other than that my experience with Chef's Most Wanted Catering & Chef Services was outstanding. I would definitely use their services again for both big and small events. Thank you for making the night a success!

The service, quality of food, reliability and price was outstanding! Allen was able to prepare breakfast and lunch for a crowd of approx. 500 people. The presentation was very well organized and appealing. Allen went above and beyond to make sure we were ready for the event with follow up phone calls, emails and coordinating a time to visit the location for proper set-up. It was extremely impressive how Allen was able to handle a tight timeline between breakfast and lunch. Many compliments were shared by those who enjoyed the delicious food. We highly recommend Allen for your next catering service needs! Thank you Allen for helping make our event a huge success! Look forward to working with you again.

Chic Chef Chicago catered my birthday party, and all my guests raved about the food. From the start, Ravi was attentive and provided food options in a timely manner via email. He satisfactorily answered all my questions (and I had a lot of them) and reassured me that we would not run out of food, which was a concern... blame the Italian in me! There were many appetizers from which to choose, including some gluten-free in which I was able to accommodate my gluten sensitive guests. Their pico de gallo, which came with the vegetarian quesadillas, is the best I've had. It was a pleasure working with Ravi, and I look forward to catering another event with him in the future.

They catered my 30th birthday party (with 100 guests) and did an amazing job. They showed up on time, were professional and polite, great food and quick clean up. The bartender I asked for did a fantastic job as well. I have recommended to anyone looking for a caterer, even strangers!

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.

Chef David was an absolute delight! He catered my 40th birthday party and from start to finish, everything was perfect and very professional. He responded to my many emails and questions prior to the event and created a menu that I couldn't have imagined! Given his experience, he was able to suggest what my guests would want; he was spot-on. He was incredibly friendly with a great sense of humor and the food was absolutely amazing! He worked with his own tools and we enjoyed stuffed olives, goat cheese and sundried tomato, scallops with bacon, beef skewers, curry chicken salad, and ahi tuna. He also made amazing quiches, potatoes, muffins, banana bread, and a wonderful fruit medley for brunch the following morning; all from his own fresh ingredients. The quiches melted in your mouth and I kept on wanting more the rest of the day! I would certainly love to have Chef David cater another event; he is truly marvelous!

This was my first time hiring a caterer, and I was not disappointed. This was also my first time using Thumbtack. Had never even heard of it before googling “caterers near me”. Carol of Food with Flair did a wonderful job catering a family outdoor BBQ at my home for my dad’s 90th birthday. We had 25 people in attendance, and many commented on how good the food was. She was very responsive from the moment she and I were matched through Thumbtack, all the way through my event. She helped plan the meal, making suggestions on food items that were popular at other BBQs she had catered; arrived promptly the day of the event with much of the food prep completed and the remainder completed once she arrived; provided the warming trays, serving dishes, and serving utensils; grilled the meat (hamburgers and chicken) on my Weber grill; set up the serving table; had the meal ready in a timely fashion; put away leftovers for me; and left my kitchen clean. She also was able to work with dietary restrictions. She offered to provide paper goods and make arrangements for other supplies (e.g. canopy), which I declined. She brought two pineapple upside down cakes (my Dad’s favorite), and because we had neglected to discuss which of us would provide the candles, she decided to play it safe and brought a “9” & a “0” candle for one of the cakes. For the other cake she had a friend create a diecut that read “Happy 90th Birthday” in colors that coordinated with the cake. It was a nice, thoughtful surprise. While I had thought about asking whether she offered tastings, I didn’t due to the small size of my party; the short time frame between booking the party and the event itself; and her experience as an executive chef. I trusted that the food would be good, and it was. But I can’t share whether she offers tastings or not. My husband and I were very pleased with the service Carol provided and would definitely use her again.

I hired Diana for the celebration of my husband's 50th birthday. She did a wondeful job. She arrived on time, brought all the food in nice days. Presentation was perfect and food was awsome. She made a beautifula and delicious cake. I gave her very few instructions about the cake and she nailed it. It was just perfect for my husband. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give her 11! Just perfect. I will with no doubt hire her again as well as all my guests who were asking me for her information.

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.

We live near Frato's and when our son was graduating, he wanted Frato's to cater it. We knew they have great pizza, but we never knew they have an even better catering team. I have a million questions and Michael answered every single one of them promptly and with detail! He helped me decide on a deluxe pita package, delicious Mac n Cheese and out of this world brownies when I was going to go the boring route of more traditional mostaccioli and beef. I'm glad he encouraged me to try something different. That wasn't the best part though. We learned that Frato's teaches culinary students how to run a restaurant (I'm not on facebook but I guess everyone knew about this but me). All the delivery drivers are actually culinary students. So they came in their professional chef coat and set everything up for us. I'm not used to such pleasant and professional delivery drivers. Amazing work and I wish every business was as detailed as Michael/Frato's. He told me he'd make it stress free and I'm a worrier, but it was as stress free as possible for me!

We had Black Fodder cater our wedding reception last month. Their coffee was phenomenal!! It was the best cold brew we have ever tasted. All of our guest were raving about how good it was. The high quality teas (they were phenomenal too) really added to the experience since not all of our guests were coffee drinkers. They definitely thought of all the details! Their presentation was professional yet down-to-earth, from the glass wear to the full service bar that they brought to the venue. We highly recommend them for any event. You won't be disappointed.
