  • There were two things we wanted to do to make our wedding memorable: Food and Music. Fig helped us knock it out of the park AND through them we found our wonderful venue! We knew we didn't want to do a banquet hall and be locked in with the standard filet mignon and salmon protein choices and when we saw Fig's eclectic and cultural sample menus, we knew we were on the right track. My confidence in Fig doubled when they asked us "What are your favorite restaurants? We'll design a menu based off of those". Their suggestions ended up being a highly curated blend of all of our favorite cuisines (Indian, Japanese, Thai, and Mexican). I also highly suggest going with their liquor package as their bartender was simply outstanding and designed for us a signature cocktail that ALL of our attendees raved about, I would no doubt pay $15 for a similar one here in the city of Chicago! Alongside that were also stand out local beer selections from their knowledgable mixologist and wine sel... Read more

  • We spent a lot of time researching caterers for our wedding, and I couldn't be happier that we chose Fig! From the tasting, through the planning stages, to the day of, Fig raised the bar on our expectations of what a caterer can deliver. Not only was the food incredible (and we've gotten so much positive feedback from our guests about it!), but the staff was unbelievably accommodating and friendly. I can't tell you how much they added to the experience for us and our guests. We were floored by the entire experience that Fig delivered, and I would recommend them to anyone.

    Thanks, Anna! It was our pleasure helping you and Brittani celebrate your day and we're happy to have delivered on the expectations!

  • We took a lot of time to research and go to tastings before going with FIG - especially since catering is typically (and it was for us!) the largest expense of your wedding day. Initially, it got off to a rough start with our original tasting being cancelled (we know now it was due to staffing, which is now resolved, we would rather FIG cater to a current, booked wedding, so we get it), but we are SO glad we decided to reschedule post this minor hiccup. We met with Ivy, and during our tasting were able to meet the owners. Through visiting FIG, meeting the entire team, and people behind the scenes, and tasting the food, we knew we were going to sign our contract with FIG. Hands down, their food was the best - locally sourced, fresh, sustainable, and most importantly, the BEST tasting, including their drinks (wine and signature cocktails included). The fact they are members of the Green Wedding Alliance was also very important to us - as Chicagoans, we love, love, love food and the q... Read more

  • FIG was recommended to us by our venue (Greenhouse Loft) and we decided to book with them after they put together a proposal with a menu that was exactly what we were looking for. Over the year+ that we worked with the FIG team, they were incredibly accommodating and great with answering our questions and updating details. We were lucky enough to work with Laura, who is incredibly warm and detail-oriented. She answered all of our questions, helped us layout our floor plan and finalize other various other details. Each time we chatted I felt like she was a close friend who was genuinely excited to help us execute the perfect wedding. FIG offers a generous tasting prior to the wedding, and we had a great time enjoying all of the delicious food. They were more than happy to make accommodations (i.e. - we liked one sauce but wanted a little less spice to accommodate some of our guests) and included We were married on 9/8/18, and everything was absolutely perfect. We received so ... Read more

  • We had a perfect wedding at The Lytle House this past August with Fig as our caterer. Ivy was an absolute joy to work with and helped us figure out a number of issues that came up near the big day so that it all went off smoothly. There is no greater gift to a bride than having piece of mind that day of and that is what Ivy gave me. The servers were phenomenal - making sure the maid of honor had a drink in her hand the minute she finished her speech just as she requested. Our guests all noted how attentive and polished everyone was. The food is DELICIOUS as are the drinks. Such high quality and sure to impress even your foodiest of friends. Can't recommend them enough!

  • We contacted 5-7 caterers and FIG stood out immediately because they took the time to really get to know us - our likes and our dislikes - before sending over a proposal. We worked closely with Ivy, who is just a complete powerhouse and catering pro! We trusted her throughout the entire process and knew that she had our best interests at heart with every decision she made. We were able to make it to one of their cocktail tastings, which was a ton of fun, and we got to sample their appetizers and specialty cocktails, wine and beer. Originally, we did not plan on having specialty cocktails but after trying them and liking them so much, Ivy made sure we were able to fit a couple into our budget. The food was absolutely amazing! All our guests raved about the appetizers, the dinner and the cupcakes! They were super helpful with how the dinner was executed given the unique layout of our venue. They were also very accommodative of certain dietary restrictions. We loved how conscientious they... Read more

  • Where do I even begin with this review?! Peter and I looked into a number of caterers for our wedding but knew shortly after filling out the FIG survey that they were unique and, more importantly, that we wanted to work with them for our big day. They went the extra mile to really get to know us as a couple and understand not only the food we wanted to serve, but the aesthetic we were trying to achieve for the meal. Upon request, they even re-created our favorite salad for the wedding, replicating everything down to the corn-bread croutons. The night of the wedding (and days after!) we received continuous compliments on the food -- the freshness of the vegetables, the perfectly cooked meats. My mom always says the most important part of the wedding is the food and FIG NAILED IT. And now, Stephanie… Stephanie is truly one of the kindest people i’ve ever met. Throughout the entire planning process, Stephanie acted as an incredible sounding board - hearing my (sometimes not so sma... Read more

  • Catering was the one thing I knew I'd spend serious money on at my wedding, and every penny was worth it--there would be NO rubbery chicken breast and mealy potatoes on my watch. FIG put together the perfect reception at the Library at 190 S. LaSalle. Considering it's a library and doesn't allow open flame, this was a challenge, and they rose to it. Stephanie worked with me 100% on budget and personal tastes to come up with a crowd-pleasing buffet of whole roasted chicken, veggie tarts, risotto, salad, and grilled asparagus. My wife and I nixed the traditional tiered cake and had FIG bake us pies instead. It was a great and tasty choice. Guests were floored by the quality of the food and cocktails. The servers were professional, quick, and unobtrusive, and delivered on every single little request I made during the planning stages. A flawless night. Thanks FIG Crew!

  • If I could give Molly and Fig 100 stars I honestly would. The food is outstanding, they were incredibly helpful planning our brunch wedding menu and alcohol selection. In addition to some of the best food I've ever had anywhere Molly and her whole team are the nicest people to work with and honestly just hang out with. They were incredibly helpful with all the pre-wedding decisions and made everything run perfectly the day of. To top it all off they even sent me a thank you card afterward. We can not thank them enough for making our day fantastic and I would highly recommend them for any and all catering needs you have.

  • FIG catered my small wedding reception of 40 people, from drinks to dinner to desserts, and did a fantastic job of it! The tasting was lovely and Justin made sure to tell us the food could all be customized to our tastes. His recipes were so good we didn't even think to tweak them! Kati worked with us to arrange a delicious family style vegetarian-friendly dinner so that no one needed to order special meals. The cake all disappeared because everyone wanted to taste each of the three flavors!

  • Molly coordinated our wedding on 12.13.14 and was absolutely amazing. She was incredibly responsive and catered to our every need. We are huge foodies and very into craft beer and Molly made sure that the menu and beverage selection reflected that. From the linens to special glassware, Molly and her team focused on every detail of the wedding. Her team made sure that we got to try some of the hors d'oeuvres with a special plate waiting for us. They also made sure that we got our food first so that we could mingle with all of our guests. Last minute we had a change to our vegetarian menu and Molly's husband Justin (the chef) created a unique vegetarian menu that was absolutely delicious. Everything was just perfect. I would recommend FIG without any reservation!

  • Molly and Justin (husband and wife team) own FIG. Molly was our event manager and it was great to work with her on everything. My husband and I cannot say enough wonderful things about FIG. The food and drinks were spectacular, but that's not the only reason you should work with them. They are wonderful people and their team is top notch. Our wedding was 10/17/14 and we had grand plans for our food. One thing we wanted more than anything was amazing food with a great selection of options. We did not want your typical sit down dinner service, so we went with four stations of small plate food options, each with a theme. Our wedding was themed on our love of the outdoors and camping, so one of our stations was called 'Campground.' You can take a look at our menu here: amanda-daniel.com/wordpr… Molly and Justin worked with us to create a menu that speaks to our tastes (we love spice and are vegetarians) but that also would make our guests happy (we have meat eating friends and quite a fe...

  • FIG catered our August 1, 2014 wedding. Molly and her team was awesome. From the multiple menu rounds, tastings and conversations, FIG Catering was awesome and down-to-earth all along the way. Even in the final tasting, we wanted a few minor changes and they came through perfectly on our wedding day. They worked with us to create a "dinner party with friends" kind of feel with furniture and menu and we ended up getting requests for the recipe for some of the appetizers and dishes! Interestingly, we went to a high end restaurant in Downtown Chicago the night before for our "rehearsal dinner" and they could have taken some tips from FIG catering on how to serve wonderful food at one time to a large group. I would recommend you check them out.

  • FIG catered our wedding this past weekend, and their service was incredible. Too often, we've attended weddings with the "rubber chicken," where the food is clearly an afterthought. Delicious, interesting, seasonal food was important to us as we hosted our friends, and FIG totally delivered. On top of providing amazing food (chicken en mole, amazing vegetarian tamales), FIG really delivered incredible service. Their staff consistently responded to my (many) emails kindly and in a timely manner, and they seamlessly coordinated with our other vendors (band, venue, florist) to create a stress-free and beautiful day. We loved, loved working with FIG, and would recommend the to anyone. Thank you, Molly and team! PS One great perk-- we were allowed to bring in our own alcoholic beverages, which the FIG bartenders served. A very great way to save money, and Molly and her team made it work perfectly for us!

  • Stephanie was wonderful to work with! She met and exceeded all of our expectations--prompt with emailing, available for a venue walk-through, and well-informed about Chicago area vendors. She went above and beyond. We were recently married with 90 guests at the Floating World Gallery. We had a simple summer menu--cheese plates with grilled vegetables, salad, green beans with frizzled onions, chicken kabobs, potato salad (the classy kind, NOT the heavy mayo kind), ricotta tart, and gelato (fresh mint-chip, chocolate hazelnut, and vegan coconut). Our guests could not stop raving about how amazing the food was. The staff was accommodating and cordial. Fig Catering is a gem. Everything from the tasting to the service was phenomenal. They use fresh and local ingredients. They made us feel as though we were the event of the summer-- we are truly fortunate to have worked with this talented group of people!
