  • Thank you so much to Dana and her team for making our wedding a perfect day! Dana, Malik, and Izzy helped with everything leading up to our wedding and were super stars on the day of. I know we probably were not the easiest people to work with (crazy parents) but Dana and her team went out of the way to answer all the millions of questions we had. The food we had at our wedding was absolutely delicious. All of our guests raved how good and pretty the food was. I was also very impressed with all the servers and how the food was presented to our guests. I also wanted to give a huge shout out to Malik, who would check on our table and make sure that my husband and I were eating and drinking enough and just generally making sure that we were doing ok. I cannot recommend them enough for anyone hosting a party at their venues.

  • We used FFT for our two-day wedding celebration blending both American and Indian cultures. My spouse is also a foodie which made the stakes high but FFT was beyond accommodating and creative with the menu. We were very impressed with the taste and presentation from tasting to day of. All of our guests raved about the food! Erica was so nice to work with, very responsive and worked hard to make our vision a reality.

  • Just had our reception at the SAIC ballroom 7/13/19 and everything was absolutely perfect. From the beginning of the planning process a year ago, Dana has been super helpful and available with all the questions/modifications we needed. I felt that FFT was more than just a catering company, at our specific venue, Dana and Malik took special care to organize the table arrangements/seating charts/decorations as we wanted. Everything flowed smoothly, from the cocktail hour to seated dinner, everyone was RAVING about the food! We also got late night food which was such a good idea, and delicious! The bar options were awesome too, and they give you tons of options to customize however you want. We even had a personal waiter who made sure my husband and I ate our dinner and served us drinks (which was AMAZING). We were allowed to keep all of our decorations in a secured office room and picked up everything a few days later without an issue. I truly enjoyed everything about our wedding at SAI... Read more

  • We had the most amazing experience working with Food for Thought for our wedding. Everything that they did for our wedding from the tasting, to the wedding walk through, and the day of was incredibly organized. Annie was willing to answer my countless e-mails. I heard from so many guest that the food was spectacular, the drinks were great, and all of the extra details were so special. I can't imagine any way that our experience could have been better. Food for Thought made our day amazing and I can't recommend them enough!

  • I was a bit nervous because when you book Adler, you have to use FFT. The monopoly made me nervous, but I got so many compliments on the food. The carving station was a huge hit in particular. Annie, our contact, was great to work with! Sper professional and prompt.

  • We worked with FFT for our wedding at the Planetarium. They blew us away in every aspect. Their staff (Annie Schey was a goddess) are all over everything, always going the extra mile. Food was delicious, we received dozens of compliments. No-brainer decision to hire them again - they were a complete delght!

  • Working with Food for Thought was our best decision. We used them for caterering as well as for many of our rentals for our reception. The food was SO good. I have had the experience where wedding food isn’t always that tasty but we were blown away by how delicious everything was. Anna was a dream to work with. She was very responsive and accommodating to making sure we were getting exactly what we wanted for our wedding. We received so many compliments about how delicious the food was-which was so important to us. We had a fairly large wedding (about 260) and to prepare that many meals and still be delicious says something. We are so happy with our decision to use FFT and would recommend them to everyone!

Her attention to detail, response time, and communication style creates an everlasting memory for her clients! The same communication is used with our kitchen staff to produce such perfect events with beauty and taste! We are so happy with your decision to use FFT and wish you the very best! We look forward to the opportunity to serve you in the future!

  • My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Adler Planetarium, where Food For Thought is the exclusive vendor. We are so happy we were able to utilize them as the service of the staff, the setup of the room, and the food were all incredible. We never could have imagined that our wedding would be so perfect and FFT was the main reason for that. Working with Elyssa as our FFT sales consultant she made the entire process as easy as possible for us, providing us with help tips and suggestions in order to make sure our wedding was what we had hoped for. We can’t thank FFT and Elyssa enough for making our special day even more special then we could have ever imagined. We would definitely recommend FFT for anyone’s catering needs!

    Meghan, Thank you so much for your review! We are so proud of our staff from kitchen to sales and their service they provide to make events like yours unforgettable! Elyssa is one of our greatest assets at the Adler Planetarium due to her fine attention to detail and really thinking it through for her clients and their guests! We are so happy to hear you were able to experience her expertise for your special day! Congratulations again! We wish you the very best in your marriage!

  • Food for Thought seriously provided the best food for our wedding. The FFT team was very accommodating regarding our and our guests' dietary preferences, and created stunning dishes out of those restrictions. We and our guests also loved the specialty cocktails FFT provided at our wedding. We will say one thing regarding organization: our planner mentioned that working with FFT was at times trying, but it was all handled by the planner behind-the-scenes, so my now-spouse and I never saw any of this.

    William, Thank you so much for your feedback and kind words! We are very happy to hear you had a wonderful experience with Food For Thought! As a custom caterer, we take pleasure in creating custom menus with dietary restrictions and preferences, which some may find challenging! We strive to provide you with a meal that is just perfect to compliment you on your special day! We appreciate the opportunity to have served you and we look forward to serving you again!

  • If you are thinking of using Food For Thought, which you should do, make sure you contact Annie Schey. My daughter's wedding was at the Adler Planetarium, which was a spectacular venue. The food was very good, it was presented beautifully, and the night went off without a hitch. I think the most important part, however, was how Annie kept us on track throughout the process. We chose not to have a wedding coordinator, and in many ways, Annie filled the role.

    William, Thank you so much for your feedback and kind words! We are so fortunate to have Annie as part of the Food For Thought Family! She really goes above and beyond to make the process from start to finish an easy for you as possible so you can really kick back and enjoy! We appreciate the opportunity to have served your daughter's wedding! We look forward to serving you again in the future!

  • We had our wedding at the Adler Planetarium where FFT is the exclusive vendor- and we can see why! They know all the ins- and outs- of the venue and are very thoughtful, thorough, and creative. We gave tons of ideas for what we wanted and FFT followed through on all of them. They gave us an original menu (the chef even designed some new plates for us), great guidance on other vendors, and made sure to keep track of all the tiny details along the way. Elyssa was great to work with! I would highly recommend this caterer.

    Hi Emily! We truly appreciate your feedback on your big day! We are so happy to hear your wedding day was complimented with the beautiful Adler Planetarium and FFT catering! Our chefs really enjoyed putting some new dishes together to really make your day complete. Elyssa is one of our greatest assets and does a phenomenal job with caring for each and every detail possible when it comes to planning someone's special day! We are so happy to have been part of your wedding day and hope to work with you on future milestones !

  • So it’s been just over a week since my daughter’s wedding catered by FFT and I had some time to reflect as well as hear from guests. While the food was great, the services was below average, in fact, horrible. May guests waited a long time for their food (example, first table to receive salads was the last table to receive dinner, almost 1 1/2 hours and after I went to the kitchen to find out what was going on. Wait staff were in the kitchen most of the time and I had to go back again to ask them to serve coffee to tables that were waiting (response, we went to the table but no one was there at the time). Shortly after receiving their dinner, The bride, groom and maid of honor left the table for a few minutes and when they returned their untouched dinner was gone. Had a 160 guests and paid for 3 pieces per person for late night snack. FFT told me this was a lot of food however I went forward. I was shocked to hear from so many people that they had no idea there was late ... Read more
