Could not have had a better experience. Rich and his crew came on time, prepared a world class thanksgiving meal, helped my wife set the table, arranged the buffet, cleaned up after themselves, were polite, courteous, and brilliant. If they wrote this review themselves ( and they did not), they could not written a more effusive review. Many thanks. We WILL be using them again.
We worked with Allen for everything, we recently moved to Texas but our wedding of 150 was in the Chicagoland area. He was great to work with, extremely responsive and had great ideas for menu and serving options for us. We had a buffet appetizer and a BBQ buffet dinner, Allen even worked out a brisket carving station for us. We had rave reviews on all the food! His staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We worked out having 4 people who would man the buffets and our dessert table, clean off the tables, set up a coffee station and package all the food up for us at the end. It went so smoothly we couldn't be happier with the service and hospitality! Would definitely recommend them for any event!!
Trying to plan a banquet from a thousand miles away, in a problematic downtown Chicago location, is not an easy task. Luckily for me, I found Ravi at Chic Chef Catering here on Thumbtack. Ravi took care of everything, handling all the location's inherent difficulties competently and professionally. He stayed with his staff for the entire event, and made sure all of our 80+ guests were happy and well-fed. More importantly, I didn't need to worry about the caterers and the food and all the rest of it, because it was all in his capable hands. I could instead focus on our guests. We chose a Mediterranean menu--with a vegetarian option to meet some of our guests' needs. Everything was delicious and there was plenty of it! Many thanks and much appreciation to Ravi and his crew! We would absolutely use Chic Chef Catering again!
We used Just a Bite for our wedding reception (130 guests), and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Going into the planning, we had no idea what we wanted. Loretta was so patient and spent a lot of time helping us plan the event and make decisions. She had great suggestions and pointed out all the little details we never even thought of. She had ideas for many different types of appetizers, everything from simple favorites to unique and elegant creations. With her helpful guidance, we were able to put together a buffet menu that was fabulous AND fit our budget! She was always available to answer questions and gave us much-needed advice on various aspects of the event. Loretta and her staff are friendly, creative and reliable. It really showed that they cared about making our event perfect, and it was. The spread was beautiful and the food was amazing!! Many of our guests commented on how great the food was. We will definitely be using Just a Bite for future events!
We have had many private chefs and caterers. We have found our “go to” chef service. Food was amazing. Mike and Matt were fun. They entertained the kids at the bar as they cooked, served.. and cleaned up. If you have never had a personal chef, try them. If you have before, uplevel to them. And by the way.. the cost was a bargain. Dinner for 8 with wine and beer pairing Less than $100 per person Insanely goid!
I highly recommend Chef Aram Reed for your next event or dinner party. He worked with me to host a special Birthday party for my wife and we were absolutely delighted with him and the delicious food he prepared. He was professional, worked with me on dietary restrictions a guest had, and was personal and engaging with my friends and family at the event. His multicourse meal items tasted amazing and were beautifully presented. I really enjoyed collaborating and planning our event with Chef Aram and have already told a number of my friends and colleagues about our excellent experience with him. We are impressed by his talents and will definitely use him again when hosting a dinner party.
KIRK CHEF IS AMAZING! For Christmas our son and daughter-in-law gave us a gift certificate for a private home chef experience. Chef Kirk called us 4 days before our scheduled evening to ask us our food preferences and/or food allergies. The evening of, Chef arrived on time with everything he needed to prepare a 6 course gourmet meal. The only things we needed to provide were flatware and plates. He gave us the option of sitting at our kitchen peninsula or in our dining room. We chose the interactive experience without a second thought. We watched Chef prepare a starter of crab cakes with capers, roasted garlic, lemon and fresh herbs served with cranberry walnut bread. The next course was a salad with roasted pear and pomegranate. Then we had seared sea scallops. Keep in mind that we have not gotten to the entree yet. The main course was blackened salmon with plantains and crispy kale. Dessert was a chocolate mousse with vanilla panna cotta and mango gelato. The transitions between courses were seamless. THIS WAS A 5 STAR MEAL!
Chef Eftekhar catered tapas-style for my wedding and he was truly outstanding! Arranging the details was a rather pleasant experience in which he listened well to our wants/needs and made fabulous suggestions that fit our (relatively tight) budget. And we loved our menu! With dishes like Bruschette Tre Amici and Asian-Styled Pulled Pork Sliders, there was nothing plain or predictable about the food he served to our guests which felt very personalized and "us". My and my wife's only regret is that we didn't get to eat more of it!
Everything was perfect. All guests commented on how delicious the food was. The staff left the premises as clean as they found them . I would definitely have them cater a future event.
We used Feast & Imbibe for an 85 person buffet dinner/BBQ. The passed appetizers and dinner were excellent. They were very easy to work with and flexible in integrating with our other arrangements for the evening. We will definitely consider them for other events that we host.
Kristin has catered many events for me...from intimate family holiday dinners to a buffet for over 100 people. She is very professional and fun to work with. But most importantly her food is delicious and the presentation is outstanding. I've known Kristin for at least 10 years. I highly recommend her!
We had a wonderful experience working with Eric! He customized his menu to our needs and even learned how to use an AGA cast iron cooker for the dinner! All the guests raved about his food - we will definitely use him again soon!
Mikey has been a great addition! He's very creative, responsive, professional and is very flexible! We've enjoyed having him in our home and his meals are delicious!
It was perfect! On-time delivery and set up. A delicious, abundant, of food. Dessert was amazing. Definitely would use again!
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 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.
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.
BellaRu is wonderful to work with! Maya asks all the right questions and has an amazing attentiveness to ensure your catering is perfect. She even assists with planning the event coordination to ensure your event comes together flawlessly. BellaRu's prices are affordable and the service is professional, personalized, and smooth. I recommend BellaRu Catering for anyone looking for service in the Chicago area!
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!
