  • I would highly recommend D'absolute, the catering company is absolutely amazing. They are very attentive to details and will make sure everything runs perfect the day of the event, Mena is absolutely great at what she is doing and Chris, the owner is very responsive and puts a lot of soul into his work. I worked with D'absolute, both Mena and Chris at Stan Mansion, and I only have great things to say. They are one of the most recommended catering companies at Stan Mansion and for a very good reason!

  • We hired D’Absolute for our wedding at Bridgeport Art Center in May and they were wonderful to work with. We knew we wanted to work with them immediately after our tasting. We previously had tastings with two other caterers and D’absolute effortlessly outshined them both. The food and presentation were excellent. Chris was also honest and direct, no fluff, and we loved that about him. We had many questions leading up to the big day and Chris was easy to reach and very responsive to all of them. When we did our final walk through at the venue, we met Mena who would be our lead on the day of our wedding. She was so wonderful to work with. She made suggestions and asked questions I had never thought of and we really appreciated that. She also shined on the wedding day. She brought us appetizers while we mingled and took photos, making sure we got to actually eat. She made sure we always had a drink. She helped with everything, even things not catering related (like looking for my bou... Read more

  • We worked with D'Absolute Catering for our wedding at Ovation. They did an amazing job. Our guests raved about the food which doesn't happen often at weddings. You spend the largest chunk of your wedding budget on catering so you better make sure you hire the best and Chris and Mena at D'Absolute are the best! We would recommend them 100x over!

  • Great service, knew my venue extremely well. Really well priced. Our guests felt that they were served a healthy portion as opposed to other weddings they had attended, so that was good feedback :) Our guests also had really great reviews of the appetizers. The team also works really well together, so it was really easy to work with D'Absolute. I would definitely work with them again - I felt like I was working with a family instead of a corporation.

  • We used D'Absolute for our September wedding. Catering was the biggest portion of our wedding budget so we wanted to make sure we loved the food that was served to our guests. Our venue provided us with a preferred catering list and D'Absolute was one of them. After completing a few other tastings, we ultimately went with D'Absolute. It wasn’t a difficult choice for us as we really clicked well with the owner Chris. He made us feel comfortable from the start and didn’t try to oversell us. He was open, honest, and responded to all our questions in a timely manner. Their prices weren't the cheapest nor the highest, but we went with our gut feeling and it was worth it! We found great value in the flavors, portions, and services that were provided. For the cocktail reception, we selected the diced beef tenderloin on a grilled crostini, mini seared ahi tuna tacos, and arancini bites. For our main dinner course, we selected the braised short ribs with truffle cabernet demi and the gr... Read more

  • We were very happy with our choice of D'Absolute Catering for our wedding reception. Providing a good dinner experience for our guests was particularly important to us, and we chose D'Absolute simply because their food tasted the best and we trusted them to provide professional service. In particular, we wanted to reflect the groom’s Macedonian roots, and D’Absolute was able to provide a number of simple yet satisfying Balkan dishes. Their versions were just like we had flown to see extended family. Additionally, their service was excellent (staff was professionally dressed, friendly, and worked quickly). We only heard positive remarks from our guests -- one guest commented it was the best food he had since arriving in Chicago. From the logistical perspective, Mena and Chris were prompt and professional. They worked with us to change the menu such that we could arrive at a price point we were comfortable with. We opted not to serve champagne, as it didn't really matter to us and th... Read more

  • We used D'Absolute to cater our October 2017 wedding at Room 1520, and couldn't be happier with how everything went. Of all the places we did tastings, not only was D'Absolute's food the tastiest, they were also the friendliest and most accommodating of what we wanted for our big day, so deciding to go with them was a no-brainer. Our wedding was on the small-ish side (70 people) so we didn't want to hire a coordinator if we didn't have to, and Chris at D'Absolute said his crew could take care of everything a coordinator would do (put favors on tables, set up the gift/place card table, put out any signage, etc.), so we happily saved a few bucks not hiring a wedding coordinator. On the big day everything came together perfectly. Chris' brother was our day-of supervisor, and the fact that my husband and I weren't even aware of everything that was going on behind the scenes speaks to how well he orchestrated things. Everything was set up perfectly at the bar and on the tables, the ho... Read more

  • One of the best wedding decisions we made was choosing D'Absolute to cater the big day! As soon as we met Chris, we knew we would be in good hands. Chris and the rest of the D'Absolute team treated all 250 of our guests with excellent service and everyone was blown away by the food. We could not be happier by how flawlessly the day went, thank you!

  • From the very start when we completed our tastings from multiple different caterers, we knew D'Absolute was going to make our wedding day even more amazing. Chris is so professional and so friendly and accommodating - we immediately felt comfortable with him. We had some dietary restrictions to work around and Chris didn't struggle with this at all - he adjusted the menu multiple times until we found something perfect for everyone. We wanted to add in unique flares to our food and Chris helped us come up with great ideas and stunning ways to present the food. We got engaged in Paris and wanted to have a Parisian touch to the night so Chris added a crepe station where his staff created different crepes on the spot! Our guests loved this unique touch! Chris and his team take catering to the next level. The food is delicious, the presentation is incredible, and the staff are professional and so friendly - they even danced onto the dance floor to serve our late night snack! :) We h... Read more

  • Our experience with D’Absolute Catering for our wedding was nothing short of perfect. Prices were extremely reasonable compared to other Chicago caterers, without falling short at all on the quality. The food was amazing, and we received tons of compliments on the food. The food was inventive, well-prepared, and well-presented. What sets D’Absolute apart from the rest is their involvement in our planning process. Mena at D’Absolute helped us with determining how to stage our cocktail hour, where guests should enter/exit, event timing, everything down to the smallest detail. They even helped us out with handling the table and chair rental with another vendor. We did not have a day of coordinator, and Mena made us feel so much more comfortable that the day would go smoothly. We even had some special requests for bar service and dessert that were handled very well. Their communication throughout the entire process was excellent. They responded in a timely manner and are great peop... Read more

  • D'Absolute did a great job catering our post-wedding celebration. Their food is delicious, better in my opinion than some of their higher priced competition. Chris also did a wonderful job of listening to our thoughts and ideas throughout the process, and made many helpful suggestions to make the evening perfect. The staff was experienced, well-prepared, and kind to our guests. Highly recommend!

  • We loved D'Absolute's food and service. Our guests very much enjoyed the food and everyone walked away satisfied including us. Chris, George, and Mena run a well-run ship and our guests were thrilled with dinner and the bar service. D'Absolute does an excellent job of providing thorough hospitality and catering services. Everyone is also very patient and helpful- great bunch!

  • We had a wonderful experience with D'Absolute Catering and especially Chris Constantine. From the beginning he was very accommodating of ever request and made special arrangements even though I was out of town to meet with my husband and I during early hours of Saturdays and Sundays before the wedding. Our wedding planner at our venue left early and we were left with no one to coordinate between our vendors and Chris Constantine stepped up and coordinated between the different vendors all night even though we did not ask him. He did above and beyond what we expected and even though it is almost two years past our wedding we are so grateful and appreciative of how he made our wedding that much more special. Thank you!!

  • Chris and his team were incredible for my wedding. He was able to take the vision my wife and I had, and put together an amazing menu. Between the passed dishes during cocktail hour and the buffet style sides/entrees, everything was delicious, and those who attended made that very clear. Leading into the wedding date, if we had the idea to add or change something, he was very accommodating. He and his team are true professionals. Chris was also very helpful with staying in contact with various vendors to make sure everything would run smoothly, which it did. Thank you so much D'Absolute

  • We got married on 8/6/16 at Room 1520. First off, the venue is amazing. If you haven't already booked a spot, check this one out. You WILL NOT be upset. Back to catering... To be honest, my wife and I never really cared that much about food for the night. We knew we had to feed our guests, but wanted more of the focus to be on the booze and dancing part of the evening. We met with a few caterers and quickly learned that food was going to be a HUGE expense. That was until we met with Chris. He and his wife, Natalie, were amazing to work with - super organized, quick to respond and genuinely nice people. We were able to work with them on a pretty spectacular menu for the night. Apps were charcuterie, tuna tacos, filo chicken cups, and bruschetta spoons. Dinner started with a salad and then guests had their choice of beef, chicken or pasta entree. My wife and I liked these dinner options so much, we asked to split a little of all three. Of course, we didn't get to eat more than a bite... Read more
