  • I highly recommend Catering by Michael's! Everyone LOVED our food at the wedding! It's not your typical "wedding food." We also had lots of compliments on the waitstaff, and how they were all very friendly and accommodating for those who need special meals. Our coordinator, Moriah, was the absolute best to work with and the process was very easy and stress-free!

  • We received a lot of great feedback from our wedding guests about our food and we couldn't agree more. Every appetizer that was supposed to be hot, was hot. I know that seems like a weird thing to share, but sometimes weddings don't always even have that. Overall our experience was wonderful from the food tasting and letting us ask too many questions to when it came to the day of the wedding. Every meal was prepared great, they accommodated every person with specific dietary needs, and the taste alone was absolutely incredible. I also would like to mention the desserts and more importantly the donuts. THEY WERE INCREDIBLE. They really truly do good work and help make sure you get the menu you want for you special day and there is nothing more you could ask for. Clear eyes, full stomachs, can't lose. They were the best.

  • We had our wedding at a CBM location, but this is just speaking with regard to the food. One word: spectacular. We were nervous going with a catering company that we weren’t familiar with, but it had been well-reviewed online, and a lot of friends had said they went to CBM events that were delicious, so we decided to go for it. We were met first with a 100-plus page menu, with the further statement that the kitchen could really make anything we wanted. Our tasting was excellent; the staff was incredibly helpful when we had to start making cuts, and the woman who assisted us at the tasting actually had her wedding at the same venue, and gave us a lot of insight about the space, and how the food is cooked/will come out from the kitchen. When we were further down the line, our fabulous coordinator Marta sent us sample menus for sweet tables because we couldn’t decide on what to get. We were able to pick from all of those menus and craft a perfect sweet table for our guests to eat ther... Read more

  • We used Michaels for our Daughters wedding at a venue that had to be completely catered with a pretty large guest list. Michaels (Michele)didn't miss a beat! From the servers to the bartenders, from the food to the drinks, everything was perfect. There were a lot of moving parts and Michele made sure everything worked. The food was HOT and delicious ! :)

    We couldn't be happier that you and your guests were pleased! It was a pleasure working with you, and, most importantly, we wish your daughter unparalleled happiness!

  • We can't say enough positive things about Catering by Michaels. We had our wedding at Events at Independence Grove and we are so thankful they use them as an exclusive caterer. For a few examples... we had chicken and waffles, tomato soup with grilled cheese fingers, a flaming donut station, a late night taco bar and the best jumbo white fish I have ever had. From the tasting (which is amazing on its own) to our wedding day, all of the food was perfect. Strangers would rave about the food when they would heard about our venue... now we know why! We can't wait to be one of those strangers now!

  • Catering by Michaels did an excellent job to deliver on the best catering possible for our wedding. Jessica W. did a great job to guide us through the process and provided the best advice whenever possible. She was attentive to our needs and quick to respond to us. We also received great feedback from our guests, everyone LOVED all the Hors d'oeuvre passed during cocktail hour as well as the passed desserts. Catering by Michaels also did a great job in providing more than enough food options for our dietary restricted guests.

  • My husband and I choose Catering by Michaels to cater our wedding. This is my second time using this company for a large event and I cannot speak enough about the their staff! For both events I have worked with Stacey and her team and the entire process was seamless. Everyone pays very close attention to detail, works with your budget, and strives to match your vision. All of these qualities were very important to my husband and I, and Catering by Michaels exceeded our standards. Our guests did not stop talking about our passed apps and dinner was a hit. Wonderful people, wonderful company. Would 100% recommend.

  • The food and decor was stellar - I'm thrilled to say my wedding served one of the best steaks I've ever had, and desserts to match. But you'll be eating a lot of good food as you taste caterers - it's CBM's personal touch that was so above and beyond. We went for a dessert tasting at Catering by Michaels, and one of the chefs sat down happened to be in the office, sat down with us, and took personal customization from the bride-to-be (who has a notorious sweet tooth!). We later found out this was the VP in charge of Desserts, and frankly that was reflective of the personal attention and dedication we got from Catering by Michaels. This was important because as a couple with a long engagement, we even had a personnel change at Catering by Michaels and nothing was lost in the exchange. That, to me, is a great measure of the stability and confidence you'll be getting with Michaels.

  • From the minute we met with Michelle Gossman from Catering By Michaels we were confident that this was the catering company that we must hire to do our daughters wedding for 320 guests at the Harold Washington Library. She gave us so much time, creative energy, her thoughtful ideas, and was a great listener to our ideas. She respected our budget and always explained why we may or may not needed the caterer’s additional services. I always felt like she was client centered in catering decisions, putting our needs and wants first. There were many challenges having a wedding of this size at this venue, but Michelle was an incredible collaborator with our party planner Marcy Glink from Great Events. She put in so many extra hours doing site visits to insure the wedding day would go smoothly. As for the day and night of the wedding..........we have never seen a team of people work as hard and as professionally as the entire staff at Catering by Michaels. From the waiters to the bartenders... Read more

  • We used Catering by Michaels for our wedding and our guests raved about the food afterward and said things like "I've never been to a wedding where the food was this good!" Our main contact, Jessica, was absolutely lovely and very responsive and helped us with all of our questions. The tasting trial allowed 6 people to attend, included a glass of bubbles, and we got to take home the leftovers. The food was DELICIOUS at the tasting and DELICIOUS at the wedding. I would recommend them in a heartbeat.

  • Catering by Michaels was the sole caterer available to us for our wedding venue, and they were absolutely phenomenal. The hors d'oeuvres were probably my favorite part. We selected from their enormous menu options and were absolutely thrilled with each choice. My family joked that we should have made a scorecard so that they could confirm they tried all 5 of our butlered appetizers. We did a brunch menu wedding and wanted a "stations" feel for service. Catering by Michaels put together a wonderful buffet with a filet of beef carving station and choose your filling omelet station. Our guests were totally pleased with the meal, and there were options for everyone. Also, the brunch bar was a hit and perfect for an early afternoon reception. It's also worth noting that our tasting was beautifully done at their headquarters in Morton Grove. Now for my only criticisms--At Events at Independence Grove, it felt as though we were expected to fit into the pre-determined menus provided to us in p... Read more
