From the tasting to going back and forth about what would be good for our guests, they were so accommodating and kind and answered every question we had. The food was wonderful and they served the cake for us and bussed the tables in such a timely manner. Seriously so so grateful for them!!

Food was AMAZING. I met with several other caterers, and Alvarez stood out far and beyond. The portions were generous, the price was a bargain, and the quality of food was top notch. It's hard to maintain that sort of restaurant quality with a larger order, but they did it. On top of that, the owners are incredibly friendly, kind and personable. They helped with dietary restrictions and were very responsive and flexible with me. Would highly recommend!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Yes we have a per person charge then tax and a service charge of 10 to20 percent depending on guest count is added. The service charge for a "drop-off" is usually $50 for serviced within Loop 1604 and $100 outside of loop 1604. For wedding caterings we usually provide a tasting at no charge, if a second tasting required a $16 to $25 per person depending on menu type is added to the final bill. We collect a 20% deposit upon hire, then the remaining balance is due two weeks prior to the event.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We submit a quote based on the customer's preferences and selections, number of guests as well as service needs. we prefer to chat with the prospective customers directly and work something out, then we take care of the rest, so that customers don't have to worry about a thing. Reaching out to customers directly to work something out is important for getting things right.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    We have over 20 years in the food industry trained under several talented chefs in many settings such as restaurants, hotels and resorts in the U.S. and the Caribbean islands, and we have produced banquet functions for large and small groups. We are able to prepare a wide variety of cuisines, anything from Barbecue to Mexican/TEX-MEX, American formal , or casual, and International Cuisine. We serve all groups such as Weddings, Funerals, Birthday and anniversary, graduations, etc..etc.. and Corporate functions.
