  • My husband and I are SO incredibly happy we chose Chef's as our wedding caterer! From the moment we emailed Jillian & Mike, we felt taken care of. Throughout the process, they were extremely responsive, answered all of our questions, were very thorough, and just amazing professionals. Jillian went above and beyond and did a site visit with me to our venue about 3 weeks before the wedding to go over the set up, speak with the venue owner, and make sure that the day would go seamlessly. You can tell they do these events ALL THE TIME and are experts at it. We chose buffet style for dinner and the food was fantastic. Oh my goodness - the mac and cheese station - to die for! Our guests were raving about the food!! They were also super accommodating to dietary restrictions, as we had a few guests who were gluten free and vegetarian. Not to mention, they fed our 180 guests probably within about 20 minutes or less (with 2 buffet lines - genius). Chef's seriously is the best and we don't know h... Read more

  • Chef's catered my wedding in October 2016, we had a sit down family style dinner. It was truly one of the highlights of the day. Having never been to a wedding in which they chose family style dinner, I wasn't sure exactly what to expect. To say that the exceeded every expectation still feels like an understatement. The service was wonderful, the staff were friendly and attentive to our guests, and people still tell me how good the food was months later. They were a joy to work with and I will absolutely be using them in the future!

  • Chefs catered my baby shower and it was one word: AMAZING. I opted for the full-service coordination and had them do everything from decorations to an amazing sweets table at the end- even had six types of cupcakes! Everyone is still raving about the food! I would highly recommend to anyone. Incredible. They really made my special day perfect.

  • My husband and I used Chef’s Catering for our wedding in October of 2015. Back when we were planning our wedding, we decided it was important to us to have food at our wedding that we could eat as we follow a Paleo diet. Mike worked with me to develop a delicious meal and invited us to his kitchen in Rochester to sample some of the items. It was wonderful to meet with a chef who understood our diet and came up with some creative dishes to surpass our expectations. A month before the wedding the event coordinator, Nik, began emailing us daily with very specific questions and follow-up. From the menu right down to salt and pepper shakers, Nik’s communication with us was OUTSTANDING, courteous, and no doubt put any of my bride fears aside. It was such a relief to find that it was a week before the wedding and we had covered all our bases with the caterers and they showed up at the right place and on time. The food that Mike and his crew prepared was beyond our expectations and somet... Read more

  • The team at Chef's Catering definitely has experience doing weddings, and they were willing to work with us on going a little out of their comfort zone to give us the experience we wanted. Cathryn was great at making sure everything was executed as planned, and they even took care of coordinating all of our rentals for us. Everyone at our wedding said the food was great, hot and cooked to perfection. We hit a couple bumps with getting our invoice and making sure everything was paid for, but it all worked out in the end.

  • I placed a big bet on Chef's Catering and it paid off. They were our cater for our rehearsal dinner and our wedding, bar service, week of coordination services and provided our cake. Their service and quality was outstanding! Everyone at our wedding raved about the food, my husband and I are foodies and we wanted to be sure we had amazing tasting food at our wedding, and Chefs did not disappoint. One of our biggest fears was cookie cutter banquet food, and we got far from that. They worked with us to develop an outstanding menu for both our rehearsal dinner and our reception. I must include a special call out to Cathryn, who was our week of coordinator from Chefs. She was outstanding, she made my experience as a bride perfect. She went above and beyond to be sure everything was exactly how I wanted. We had an unfortunate situation with our rental company, and she stayed until midnight the evening prior to the wedding to be sure everything was taken care of. We also had cra... Read more

  • Had Chef's Catering cater a baby shower and another family party for my family and not only could I not be more impressed, my family sure was thankful I made the recommendation. Beyond amazing food, beyond amazing service, everything was just amazing. I've since recommended them to everyone and their mother because I know their food will change the way they look at catering!

  • First off- the most important thing when it comes to a caterer, the food! Food was top notch, A+ for the pulled pork, loaded potato salad, and my cousin said the mac n cheese was the best she's ever had! No complaints there! I do think the cocktail hour food sat out a bit too long, as it was close to 90 degrees our wedding day, but I can get over that. I must say that I was disappointed in some of the service: everything was set up perfectly and I believe people's plates were cleared in a timely manner, but when you're paying 25 bucks an hour for bartenders, you expect them to know that wine does NOT get poured into 12 oz cups meant for beer (and get filled to the top)!! UGH. I think they learned early on in the night that we had different cups for wine. I was pleased that they reached out to my husband and I when we were getting low on wine, they actually drove my mother in law to a local liquor store to pick up more, which is highly appreciated and thoughtful. We also had beverage ... Read more
