  • Marcela and the team did an amazing job from start to finish. The communication with Marcela throughout the entire process was flawless and her expertise made us feel at ease. It was calming to know we were in good hands. The appetizers and dinner were the best we tried! We have only great things to say about Cocina and are so happy we went with them!

  • Marcela & the Cocina Fusion team played a crucial role in a day that we will never forget. Having a creative and unique experience was something that we cared deeply about. Marcela and her team’s creativity and quality of dishes exceeded all expectations we had for what “wedding food” could be. There was never a doubt about the quality of the dishes after a personalized tasting session. But the level of communication and thoughtfulness that went into every aspect along the way was something we did not expect. The day of orchestration of all food items went flawlessly and we had many quests go out of their commenting on “how much fun” they had trying new foods and in a family style format. We cannot recommend Marcela and her team at Cocina Fusion enough. PS – Poblano Chicken. ALWAYS get the Poblano Chicken. Thank you Marcela & Cocina Fusion!!

  • Where do I even start? Marcela and her team were perfect from the moment we met them at the tasting. Upon trying the empanadas, we knew we had to have Cocina Fusion at our wedding. It was the best decision we ever made. The food with absolutely delicious and the team was so wonderful to work with. It’s only been two weeks since our wedding and we have already received sooo many compliments. We wanted to do something that wasn’t boring “wedding food” but also wasn’t too out there, oh and it had to be delicious- and that was exactly what we got!

    We are happy that everything came together beautifully for your wedding day and that everyone enjoyed your first meal as Mr. & Mrs.

  • We were so happy with our decision to go with Cocina Fusion for our wedding! As my husband is Mexican, it was important for us to incorporate his culture into the day, and being able to have a Latin fusion dinner was a wonderful part of that. The food from Cocina Fusion was simply delicious, and we received compliments from our guests afterward as well. On top of the excellent food, the service that they provide is really special. We worked mainly with Marcela, who we can't recommend enough. She was so warm, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful through each step of the planning process, as well as on the day of the wedding. From start to finish, we felt like we were in such good hands. We definitely had a lot of questions early on in the planning process, and she was incredibly patient and helpful with each one, as well as wonderful in working with us on our menu selections based on our budget. As our venue allowed us to bring in our own liquor, she was also great in helping us gauge ho... Read more

  • Cocina Fusion Catering's food was out of this world. We had almost everyone of our guests we spoke with comment on how delicious the food was at our daughter's wedding reception. We had 175 guests at our wedding and reception and Cocina Fusion was hired to do appetizers, bartenders, served dinner, and late night snack, they knocked it out of the park on all counts. The food tasted excellent we had 3 choices for our guests, the beef chimichurri, stuffed chicken and vegetarian offering of a stuffed poblano pepper were all outstanding and food was hot! People were raving about their appetizers too especially the mini tacos. They were professional, well organized, generous with portions, we could not have been more pleased with the food and service. Highly recommend!

    Hi Cheryl, The wedding was beautiful! Thanks for trusting us with such an important task. Warm regards!

  • Juliana and her entire team are amazing. They deserve every single spectacular review they get. The food was incredible-- we’ve heard at least 10 different people tell is it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had, and (though we’re biased) we totally agree! Guests raved about the chicken, steak, and the mushroom risotto cakes. Aside from executing everything perfectly, Juliana is one of the warmest people we’ve met. She was so unbelievably kind and helpful throughout our process. We said many times that we were so thankful that we had the opportunity to work with her because she just exudes a calming energy in what can be a stressful event-- you just know Juliana is going to get things done!

  • These guys are amazing! I have been so anxious to write a review for them having just had our wedding because I could go on and on about their professionalism, quality, service, and deliciousness! We have received multiple compliments that our wedding's food was the best food our guests have had; from the appetizers to the dinner, even the coffee! Marcela is a dream and her team made our day run so smoothly and efficiently with the room flip from ceremony to reception and cleanup where they literally stopped my mother from her usual tidying up and said everything would be taken care of. I could go on but really all you need to know is...look no further!

    Thank you for trusting is with one of the most important days :) It was an honor to server your first meal as Mr. & Mrs. and of course making sure everything enjoyed the night, especially mom lol

  • Best churros I have ever had- buttery, fluffy, crispy, perfect! Chimichurri steak was incredible, rise to cakes, veggie towers, everything was excellent. The only thing missing was our vegetarian option for 2 guests but they made due with the vegetables at the buffet.

    Thank you for allowing us to prepare and serve your first meal as Mr. & Mrs. :) Oh those churros, you can't just have one!

  • There’s a reason why Cocina Fusion continues to get 5 star ratings. They are phenomenal!! My wife and I primarily worked with Marcela and we can’t express enough how amazing Marcela and her team were throughout the entire process. When we went initially reached out to check their availability and pricing, we received a response right away. Their online program for quotes/invoicing is user friendly and allows for plenty of editing, which is inevitable. During our initial tasting, Marcela and Juliana were so welcoming and provided us with great information. At no point did we feel like they were trying to sell us something, it was just a natural conversation that felt like we had been friends forever. To us, this was so important because the food and service are quite possibly the most crucial part of your event. We wanted to feel like we could trust the people we hired to bring great energy and create a wonderful experience for our guests. After we had officially contracted ... Read more

  • I could not be happier with Cocina Fusion as our caterers. As everyone knows, planning a wedding is super exciting but also very stressful. I planned my entire wedding without a wedding planner and Juliana from Cocina Fusion is really one of the main reasons this was even possible. She was a huge help throughout the entire process, extremely responsive and her and her team handled everything for me the day of. She made me feel so comfortable from the beginning that I had complete confidence that I could trust her and her team on the big day. That is huge for me because I am very hands on but for once, I was able to let go and let them handle so I could enjoy our big day. Thank you again Juliana and the entire Cocina Fusion team! I would recommend them to EVERYONE!

  • Cocina Fusion was amazing to work with! Not only is their food delicious, we had so many guests comment on how great the food was,but they have extremely reasonable pricing. Marcela (catering manager) was great to work with; so friendly, very flexible, and extremely helpful. Anytime I emailed her with a question she was very quick to respond. She made sure everything ran smoothly and even made sure my husband and I ate dinner! Overall it was a fantastic experience and I would highly recommend them!

  • Cocina Fusion provided the food for our wedding at Chez Chicago and it was ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! They have both a traditional Italian menu and a less traditional Mexican menu; we went for the latter because it was SO GOOD, and we served it family style. We got a TON of compliments on how tasty the food was, how beautifully it was presented, and how attentive the wait-staff was, and they were incredibly attentive to the food-restrictions/allergies of our guests. Cocina Fusion also provided the bartenders for our wedding, and they were great as well (mixing our specialty cocktails really well!). Most importantly, Marcela was an ABSOLUTE PLEASURE to work with leading up to the wedding; she seemed to have everything under control and was very organized and clear. On the day of our actual wedding, Juliana was on site, and she was FANTASTIC! She was very organized and coordinated delivery with all of our other vendors (e.g., cake, alcohol), gently kept us on time when we lost track of ... Read more

  • Cocina Fusion is HANDS DOWN the best caterer! From scheduling the tasting, from getting the best tasting food you have ever had in your life, to ending your wedding night, you will be amazed at the phenomenal service that you receive from this company. Our wedding was June 10th, 2018 - however we began conversing with Marcela from Cocina Fusion all the way back in August 2017. Marcela, this amazing woman who keeps her availability open ALL hours of the night, literally made our wedding!! Not only did she manage the catering staff, she helped me create a wedding time line, was extremely patient with all of my questions, worked with our limits budget, helped with picking out the linen color, she was the icing on the cake! She surprised me with my favorite wine on my wedding day, and even sent me a pre wedding thank you card! Our food was phenomenal! The food was steak and salmon buffet style, which was great because our guests kept going back and forth to get more! We tried s... Read more
