  • We had a wonderful experience working with Kristin and her team for our wedding. Designing the menu with them was fun and they were easy to work with. My husband is lactose intolerant and the whole team did a wonderful job making sure our menu fit our taste preferences as well as dietary needs. Our guests complimented the food A LOT!

  • The food Jewell made for our wedding was incredible! Everything from the appetizers to the sheet cake was unforgettable. Kirstin was truly one of the heroes of our day, helping with everything from the seating chart, to fixing the bustle on my dress when it broke! She went above and beyond to ensure that our day was perfect. We highly recommend Jewell to anyone who is planning their big day.

  • We are so happy we chose Jewell Events Catering to cater our wedding reception. The food was absolutely delicious. We had a pretty unconventional reception on a charter boat and did not have a sit down dinner, but rather a taco bar. We received so many compliments from our guests who said the food was fantastic. The staff were very helpful, friendly and I received such great service from the time of quote to the actual wedding day. I would definitely recommend.

  • Jenna and the Jewell team delivered the best wedding food our friends have ever had. Even two months after our big day, friends and family continue to ask about our caterer. Jenna was a dream to work with, the price was very affordable, and the delivery was exquisite. Would highly recommend to all!

  • I cannot say enough great things about Jewell Catering, and neither can our guests! I worked with Jessica and Kristin and they are truly the dream team. From the food tasting, to cake tasting, to final walk through they were our biggest supports and made us so comfortable with how our day would turn out. They went above and beyond just organizing our meals, they contributed to executing our vision for the day. Our guests are still talking about how great the food was, three months later. So much thought and detail were put into each item and were fantastic. And there was no better way to end the night then with a chicago dog. I can not imagine ever working with a different group and will continue to praise them.

  • I couldn't give higher praise of Jewell Catering. They were incredibly responsive, took care of all of our requests including having a chocolate fountain and we were able to drop off our table settings/wedding favors to their location ahead of time so they were able to set it all up for us when we got there. They were amazing and I hope to get a chance to work with them again.

  • ewell catered our wedding at the Cheney Mansion in Oak Park in June 2018, and they were absolutely perfect! The food and drinks were delicious and the service was incredible, both day-of and during the year-long planning. Dana was consistently so thoughtful and responsive and really went the extra mile in taking care of every detail and special request. I loved working with her, and because of her and the Jewell team, did not have to worry about anything the day of my wedding except to have fun! I cannot recommend them enough. You can tell even from the initial contact and first tasting, Jewell really stands out as exceptional.

  • Jewell one one of our favorites vendors to work with. Their food was amazing, but the service was even better. Jenna and Melanie were incredible every step of the way. They had an answer for all of our questions, and they made everything flow seamlessly. They are so much more than just a caterer! They helped coordinate with all of our vendors and set the day-of schedule. On the big day they provided an incredible calming presence and made sure everything ran smoothly, down to managing the lighting level and cuing everyone in the bridal party down the aisle. We HIGHLY recommend Jewell Events Catering to anyone getting married in Chicago!

  • George Jewell Catering was absolutely amazing. We worked with Les Chandler, and I wouldn't have trusted anyone else with this job. From the tasting to the day-of, it was an unforgettable experience working with him and his team. During the tasting, we were fed until we couldn't take one more bite. We tried so many amazing appetizers, small bites, salads, entrees and desserts, and late night snacks, we didn't even know what to pick it was so good! We had so much fun at the tasting, it was one of our favorite "wedding planning" days. Then came the wedding. It is no easy task serving a plated meal for 300 people in an outdoor tent, but they made this look effortless. Les and his team went above and beyond to ensure all of our guests needs were met. The wine pours were endless, the food was piping hot, and everyone raved to us about how they wanted more of that amazing tenderloin. Their team was so well organized, and was able to handle our rowdy crowd with ease. Les and the George Je... Read more

  • I had an absolutely amazing experience with Jewell Events Catering and, more specifically, with Kristin! She was extremely patient throughout the entire process, with us changing our menu options a few times and the end product being exactly what we were looking for - an upscale, urban BBQ. We received tons of compliments on the food! Kristin went above and beyond, providing priceless advice throughout, helping us set up decorations, handing out ice cream at our ice cream cart and much much more. I highly recommend!

  • Jewell was a delight to work with and the food was delicious for our wedding at the Newberry Library in November 2016! Kristin and Jenna provided great communication and coordination both on our actual wedding day and leading up to it. Their organization made the logistics and last minute changes easy to deal with – they are truly pros. The servers and bar tenders were on top of things all night long. We have received multiple compliments on the food (particularly the salad and beef). We were thrilled with Jewell from beginning to end and highly recommend them!

  • I highly recommend Jewell for your next event! I worked with Jenna for my wedding and she helped to pull off the perfect day. She was incredibly easy to work with and made accommodations for us throughout the entire planning process and attended to our families, my husband and myself the night of the reception. The service was seamless and the food was delicious. Everything was very well timed, organized, and professional. After multiple catering tastings Jewell was the only caterer in Chicago that met all of our needs and I am happy to say they exceeded our expectations!

  • I am a Wedding Planner with Storybook Weddings and Events here in Chicago, and I had the pleasure of working with Katherine back in October. The wedding was at Chez Event Space, where Jewell works often. Working with Katherine was so great, she was quick to respond to questions that my couple had, and she was also quick with solutions to any concerns that we had. On wedding day their team executed everything wonderfully... you could tell that they were true pros and great service comes naturally! Thank you for everything, I can't wait to work with you all again soon!

  • Kristin at Jewell was amazing to work with! From the initial tasting to meeting me at the venue (Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum) to pick out linens (I didn't know what I was doing and wasn't sure I particularly cared, but she was so helpful in steering me in the right direction!) to the day-of, she was calm and organized. The timing of our wedding was a bit off because of weather and a shift of dinner to the indoor space, but Kristin and her staff kept cocktail hour flowing right into dinner without seeming frantic or anything. They also set up a delicious s'more station for us to fit our ourdoorsy theme. The guests had no idea we were off our timeline. In addition, my husband and I are "pescatarian" and wanted a vegetarian meal with fish option. They had no problem working with us to fit the bill!

  • I initially began working with another vendor, but Stephanie's persistence and willingness to work with our budget definitely won us over. i was a little shy about explaining catering was not top on our list with priorities, but Stephanie definitely understood and we began deconstructing what was important and how we can incorporate that into our menu. The tasting was the BEST part! The waiting area had an LCD welcoming us (by name) as well as delicious champagne (which we used for our cocktail hour). They are very detailed and I can tell they listened to every word I said as it clearly showed in the presentation and food items. Definitely go with them if you're on a budget. **Adding on, post wedding** If I can give more stars, I would!! Again, their attention to detail is impeccable! When I arrived for the cocktail hour, there were a few things that weren't running as smoothly as I thought (band was missing, seating arrangement questions, etc.), but Stephanie and my day of c...
