  • We were very impressed with the presentation and quality of the food and service. Setting up appointments was easy. On the day of our wedding the staff was incredible. They catered to our guests and paid attention to even the smallest details. Our families and guests commented on how attentive the staff was throughout the evening. Food for Thought truly made the evening memorable. We will be recommending them to all of our friends on their upcoming weddings!

  • We weren't looking forward to the catering process AT ALL. We put it off for a month or so because of it. We were surprised at how well Food for Thought fit us. They made the process so simple for us, as we asked, but the end result was so spectacular, as we wanted. We couldn't believe the process went so smoothly from day one. We started the process on the night of December 29, knowing we wouldn't get very far before the NY's holiday. We were wrong, we got a call on the 30th (as everyone else was already shut down for the holiday), we had a quick conversatoin about what we were looking for, and then had an outline to us by January 2 (end of day). We fell in love instanlty. They were straight forward about working through the process together, openly and honestly. The other vendors we had started to talk to all seemed just a touch more "salesy". Our team was relaxed. They were extremely attentive when we had things to take care and let us go when we didn't need them. They kn... Read more

  • Our catering was superb! We had amazing individualized attention and received exactly the setup, food, linens, and service that we had hoped for. The company went out of their way to accommodate us. In fact, most of our guests remember how good the dessert was still.

  • Food For Thought covered everything! We had planned a destination Chicago wedding, which meant that we relied on our event manager Linda for most everything the day of! The servers were fantastic and attentive to our guests needs. Our glasses were never empty! FFT helped us make the most of our budget, giving us great advice when it came time for menu selection. I would highly recommend them!

  • This is one of the most elegant caterers in the Chicago area, and I was pleasently shocked at what a great value they offered us. We did a buffet luncheon for 50 guests, and everything was personalized and customized. They even developed an entire menu around our favorite French-Vietnamese cuisine from two excellent restaurants in the area. The tastings were really hands-on, and they even delivered the revised dishes to our home so we could taste them be sure all the changes were just right. They use Bittersweet bakery for the wedding cake, which was quite honestly the best I've ever had. All in all, I can't recommend them enough.

  • This caterer was one picked for me due to our choice in reception site. But I was completely surprised at how wonderful things went though them. They are impeccable about not only providing food but SERVICE! The staff was so friendly and had a flare for presenting the dishes at the tables. My main point of contact was through Rosemary, and she was such a sweetheart! After everything was over, the bakery kept hounding me about returning a silver tray they said they put the cake on. Rosemary went above and beyond trying to locate this tray, going through their stuff and even asking the table rental people if they had it. In the end, we found out the bakery didn't lend us any tray after all!

  • Our guests raved about the food -- the beef tenderloin and blue cheese mashed potatoes were most often mentioned. My bulky uncles came away from the reception "fat and happy." Food for Thought was willing to work with our suggestions and within our budget. My father said he had his best Brandy Old Fashioned ever at our reception. A great feat, considering the bartender had learned the "recipe" per our request. The service was extremely friendly and accommodating.

  • Food For Thought did an excellent job of catering, everything was taken cared of appropriately and everyone was served on time. The food options they had were lots, so it wasn't hard finding something we both liked.
