  • Conn’s Catering did a great job! We hired them for a wedding of about 50 guests. We utilized them for appetizers, a couple tables, table linen, ice & ice coolers, coffee, wait staff, & a bartender. Brent met with us at the venue a couple weeks before & was genuinely concerned about meeting all our needs and executing our vision. Brent worked well with our event planner getting everything organized. Brent ensured his staff knew what was coming from the food, beverage, & desserts vendors so that they could properly prepare. The day off, Conn’s staff was awesome! They were extremely professional and polite. As soon as the ceremony was over, and the two of us were taking pictures outside by ourselves, one of the staff came over and made sure to get us a beverage and food brought out to us. That was such a small thing, but went a long way for us...we were starving and thirsty. Throughout the night, the bartender new exactly how we wanted our beers & made sure to serve them up ju...

  • Conn's was incredible! We had our wedding at a venue that provided literally nothing and Conn's brought in everything, set it all up, took it all down, etc. Ivy is a goddess. She is such a hard worker and she is damn good at what she does. The owner even met with us beforehand and was there at the wedding to help Ivy and make sure everything went smoothly. I had a lot of ideas for what I wanted my wedding to look like, not all easy, and they worked with us to make it happen. It wasn't cheap by any means, but was more affordable than other caterers and you get excellent, seamless service. I would recommend Conn's to anyone looking for a caterer!

    responded with the following comments.

    Thank you so much! It was such a pleasure to work with you, Nick and Candace. You were a beautiful bride, and your wedding was so much fun! Congratulations! Ivy

  • We used Conn's to cater our June 2, 2012 wedding. We primarily dealt with Geri and Steve throughout the whole process and they were very helpful and responsive. There were a few instances when Geri had strong opinions about what should or shouldn't be done, but we just stood our ground on what we wanted and it worked out just fine. Geri also helped us remember every detail we needed to think of and frequently sent us reminders. She also completely coordinated linen rentals with an outside company with no glitches. Since they have a good relationship with the Chicago Park District, they arranged the use of grills on the property to cook our steaks. Of course, things can easily add up when you want extras, but Conn's was much more reasonably priced than the other 'approved caterers' on the Chicago Park District's list. Steve ended up coordinating the day of and everything went perfectly. The food was delicious and we received multiple compliments from our guests. They were also very a... Read more

  • We worked with Sheila & Brent for our Aug 17th, 2019 wedding at Garfield Park Conservatory. They were highly communicative and always willing to meet/call to clarify things at the venue. They never rushed us and were always willing to send us options for complementary vendors and ideas for how to make the process smoother. We appreciated that they understood the unique challenges of the venue in terms of room access/timing. The food was good and pricing was very competitive (and we definitely did our research here). We chose the duo meal of brisket & salmon with a side of potatoes and asparagus and an open premium bar. Highly recommend.

  • We worked with Conn's Catering for our wedding this past August. We were married at a Chicago Park District location and Conn's was on the preferred caterers list. We reached out to all caterers on the list and tasted a handful of them. Honestly, Conn's was the best choice based on food, prices, everything that was included, and the quick/helpful responses we received from Sheila and Brent throughout the entire process. I truly cannot say enough great things about working with Conn's. They set up a tasting for us, met with us and our planner multiple times, attended our venue walk-throughs, were always available via phone and email, and were extremely helpful/flexible with our many questions and many many changes. The food was delicious. So many of our guests complimented us on the this and said it was the best food they've had at a wedding. We had passed hors d'oeuvres, plated dinner, open bar, and towards the end of the night Conn's coordinated the delivery of Lou Malnati's pizza ... Read more

  • Brent, Sheila, and Eduardo run a tight, professional ship and we couldn't have been more pleased with the results. Leading up to the day, Brent and Sheila were communicative and helped us walk through what we needed to have figured out and when by. The food was fantastic, both appetizers (meatballs, caprese skewers, and bacon wrapped dates) and the entree (duo of chicken marsala and beef brisket, broccoli, and artichoke mashed potatoes) got rave reviews. On top of the quality of the food, it was like Eduardo and I were telepathic - he knew automatically what I was worried about, and had an answer for me anytime I gave him a worried look! The bartenders even stood their ground with my guests about the "no shot rule," and all leftover alcohol came back accounted for.

  • I had a small wedding (65pp) at an art gallery in downtown Chicago. Ivy was a pleasure to work with. I live in Northern California and coordinating the wedding from a distance was a challenge. Ivy made the process significantly less painful! The service staff was professional and courteous. Very attentive. The food was GREAT. Raves from all of my guests and Ivy made sure that me and my new husband took time to sit down and eat. We got married over the 4th of July weekend and did a BBQ theme. Fun, festive and flavorful.

  • We hired Conn's Catering to cater our June wedding at the Columbus Park Refectory. We attended one of their tastings and were pleased with their professionalism and how personable their staff was. When we described to Ivy how my husband and I had met at a summer camp, she was full of creative ideas of how we could incorporate the theme into the reception. Prior to the event, Ivy was incredibly responsive to emails and phone calls. She even met with us at the venue to discuss logistics and did a lot to problem-solve how to seat people with our large guest list. All of our vendors had nothing but confidence and positive things to say about Conn's Catering. The day of, Ivy was present (despite the 90 degree heat) and she and the staff had nothing but smiles on their faces. She made herself available and was a calm and helpful presence during all of the reception. Her energies lasted longer than my own!!!

  • We happened to meet Ivy from Conn’s Catering at an open house for the venue we ended up booking, Promontory Point. She made a great impression right away. After putting out inquiries to nearly all the vendors on the Chicago Park District approved vendors list, we ultimately selected Conn’s given their responsiveness, experience with our venue, customer service, and value. And, we definitely think we made a great choice. Ivy stayed in regular contact with us throughout planning and we took advantage of two of Conn’s tasting events in order to finalize our menu. Ivy always had useful perspectives and ideas for us – there are a lot of choices to be made when it comes to wedding catering and she helped us through the process. Conn’s also coordinated all linen and equipment rentals needed, so it was great to have them as a “one stop shop.” Up until just a few days before our wedding, they remained flexible and open as we made some last minute changes to our layout and event ...

  • Our summer 2015 wedding reception was absolutely perfect thanks to Conn's. They exceeded our every expectation: the food was delicious, the service was excellent, and--if that were not enough--Ivy did a fantastic job setting up the reception room and ensuring everything was running smoothly. She had helpful suggestions regarding color, room layout, and event timeline, and took our wedding reception to a whole new level. We could not have picked a better caterer for our event. Many thanks to Ivy & Brent for going way beyond the call of duty!

  • Conn's catering provided food and drinks for my cocktail hour as well as table and chair rentals. They were very responsive to emails and questions and willing to try to work within my budget. Even though we were able to bring the price down a little bit, it was still more than we expected to pay for a few hors d'oeurvres and drinks. Nevertheless they were very professional and timely in setting up and what I tasted was quite good. It was also less stress having furniture rental and food from the same place. I was overall very pleased with Conn's catering.

  • We had a great experience with Conn’s Catering for our June 23rd wedding at Promontory Point. We felt that Conn’s delivered the right balance of affordability while providing delicious food and great service. We received many compliments on the food, particularly on the beef brisket and salmon. We also appreciate that Brent and Sheila were committed to understanding our preferences and working with us to create a site layout that met our expectations. They really understood Promontory Point, which was tremendously helpful in making everything run smoothly. The servers and other staff were incredibly friendly and professional throughout the event.

  • Conn's Catering is the catering service I used because I wanted to stay within a budget. They were very responsive, helpful, and accomodated my requests. The only issues I had with them were that Geri the manager that handles the scheduling was very pushy and they wanted to increase the amount that I wanted to pay. I had a couple of doubts that they would mess up during my Reception, but the night turned out well and I was satisfied.
