Chef Most Wanted prepared a delicious meal for our graduation party. I would highly recommend this catering company. Thank you!
We hired Inglenook Catering for a block party my organization had August 5, 2016. It was a very large crowd 450-600 and this catering company handled them impeccably. We were at a park in Lombard, and Joe scoped out the park in advance and was in constant communication. We told them about how we wanted our food to taste, and the Jerk Chicken receives a score of 12 on a scale of 1-10. Just absolutely delicious. The baked beans too! Oh and the hamburger, and hot dogs, and the.... well you catch my drift... Their crew was professional and they just got everything right! Everyone who attended said this was the BEST block party in the history of the conference and the catering WAS THE BEST EVER! We travel to a different city each year, but our experience with Inglenook makes us want to come back to the Chicago area or bring them along to the next city. Not related to them, but we had a negative experience when we rejected another company's proposal and went with Inglenook. I cannot speak on their work, but their attitude was off-putting. I would, without a doubt pick Inglenook again and again. I would also be willing to be a reference if need be. I wish them continued success.
Honestly, words won't do this company justice. When I say that my wedding was literally perfect, I mean literally perfect. Kim and her crew were invested in making everything easy for me and doing everything to make me happy from the very start. A little bit of advice to anyone shopping for a wedding caterer: you HAVE to find someone that you love to talk to and work with... And this is that company. I had the most elaborate and beautiful decorations for my food stations and tables-- all thanks to Sugarellas. We had four food stations themed from Italy, France, Southwest, and the American South. Every guest received a "passport" for their trip around the world. Each station had a main entree, specialized side dishes, and the most deliciously paired desserts. The food was incredible-- from the appetizers to the specially made cakes. The decorations made the room everything I could've dreamt of. Most of all, working with Sugarellas (and especially Kim) has been one of the most fun experiences ever. She took the stress right off of me and made everything a fairy tale (she even made me high heeled shoes molded from chocolate so I could feel like a princess AND eat chocolate, too!) I would highly recommend sugarellas for catering any and all events. I will never, ever need to look for another caterer again. With Sugarellas, your options are endless!
I hired Lakeshore Private Chef & Catering to cater a joint 40th and 85th birthday celebration. I couldn't have been happier with the results. The food was delicious and Chef David was a delight to work with. If I ever needed to do this again, I would definitely hire this company 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!
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!
Beyond amazing and very personal. TLC catered my bday party. Everyone loved the food!
I would hire Gracious again to cater future parties. All my guest loved the food and the presentation was great. I found Clarissa to be very accomadating.
As a fellow event and catering professional, Feast and Imbibe did stellar job of amazing my guests. Recently, Heather and Chef D'Andre created an amazing menu and wine pairings for my baby shower, an intimate dinner for 12. As my guests walked in Heather was offering the champagne we decided to serve and Chef and his team were busy in the kitchen working on plating the passed apps, D'Andre's signature Chicken and Waffle bites! OMG!! Throughout the six course dinner the F& I team was the height of professionalism. Not to mention each course Chef created was mindbendingly delicious! My guests were both satisfied with portion sizes and some woke up the next day craving more! We dined on a beautiful deconstructed salad, smoked salmon, duck confit, olive oil poached salmon and my favorite...lamb belly!! For dessert Chef created a S'more Bomb that was "smoked" with vanilla bean and once cracked open revealed the gender of my baby!! My guests laughed and screamed with delight! Even adults love playing with their food!! I can't wait to use F&I again!!
Kristen has catered a few parties for me, including a baby shower and two corporate events. Her food is spectacular as well as beautifully presented. She also has excellent cocktails recipes and ideas. After every event, my guests always request her contact information because they are so blown away by her cooking skills and her presentation. Her staff is responsive and very hard-working. I will definitely use her for all of my events going forward and would highly recommend her to others.
Hired this private chef for company retreat in Austin lakehouse. Served around 24 people. Very personable, food was fantastic. Everything was perfect. Definitely recommend Eric Daniel of Culinary Misfits.
I was very pleased with the catering process from Kitchfix. Ashley was very responsive and helpful throughout the ordering process and the food was very to most of our staff's liking. We ordered the Rosemary Beef, Falafel, Maple Shallot Chicken Breast, Caramelized Apple and Walnut Salad, and had sides including green beans, cauliflower and broccoli, and a cauliflower rice. All prepared and executed well.
I have used Four Horsemen to cater my company and client events many times with 100% satisfaction. The product is great and the price is very reasonable. Cheers is also a great place to take clients to unwind at the end of the day. I highly recommend both Cheers and Four Horseman.
We hired the Remade Kitchen to cater our church christmas party event in December 2017. We loved working with Heidi and The Remade Kitchen! She was responsive, professional, punctual and the food was great! We look forward to using her services again for any future events at our church!
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.
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.
So happy we chose Chef Val and her staff for our corporate event! The presentation was wonderful, they arrived on time, and the cost was better than any other proposal we received. Everyone loved their food, but the biggest hits were the Deviled Eggs, the Garlic Parmesan Chicken Bites, and the Triple Chocolate and Red Corvette Velvet Cupcakes! I would definitely and use them again for our next event. Thanks so much Chef Val, you were a delight to work with!
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!
