  • We used Paramount to cater for 200 people at the Chicago History Museum. Rachel Heuermann led the efforts from Paramount and was very easy to work with. We chose Paramount because we felt that the food really stood up to the 'restaurant quality' reputation that Paramount has. They did not disappoint upon serving 200 people on the day of our wedding. Multiple people commented on the appetizers and dinner - both about the quality of food and the quality/speed of service. Though they were on the pricier side due to the size of our wedding, Paramount was well worth the money spent. We've attended multiple weddings over the past few years ourselves, and Paramount was by far the best caterer.

  • Emily and the whole team at Paramount were terrific in making our wedding day perfect. They worked with us in the weeks leading up to the big day, and worked with our planner and contracted caterer to make sure everything went off without a hitch. Thank you so much for everything!

  • Rachel and her team at Paramount were so wonderful to work with! Rachel was extremely responsive and knew every answer to every one off question I asked her. After our tasting we were even more excited for the wedding because we knew the food would be absolutely amazing! We ended up doing a few different food stations and each one was better than the last. All of our guests commented on how great every piece of food was and wished they could take some home with them. The staff at the event was so wonderful to work with and truly made our wedding an unforgettable event!

  • I don't even know where to begin. The entire team at Paramount Events was absolutely fantastic to work with. Their food is incredible, but what really made a difference was their customized service. From start-to-finish, Nikki and Emily made wedding planning a breeze and offered assistance in helping me book a venue, DJ, florist, and videographer. I highly recommend the Paramount Events Team and will definitely be using their services again in the near future. A+!

  • I wish I could give more than 5 stars! Paramount Events was the most professional vendor we worked with throughout our entire wedding planning process. Our guests are still talking about how delicious dinner was at our wedding. Everyone said they felt like they were dining at a restaurant, rather than an event. Chef Devon worked with us every step of the way to plan a unique and exciting menu that was just perfect for our winter wedding. Some of the highlights were a beautiful two tone soup course, an awesome signature cocktail, creative takes on grilled cheese for a late night snack and a delicious steak and fish duet. The only thing that parallels Paramounts food is their staff and service- just the best! I can't recommend Paramount enough! Hiring them was truly the best decision we made when wedding planning.

  • I wish I could give this company more than 5 stars. Caroline was our contact for our winter wedding at Cafe Brauer and she went above and beyond helping to coordinate the day of events, give cues and even noticed I was feeling under the weather and made sure to keep the hot water with honey and lemon coming. The food and cocktail hour were incredible, food was served promptly and professionally and most guests commented on how good the food was both in taste and presentation. Caroline was responsive, worked with our budget, gave suggestions in a helpful not pushy way and was a friendly, calming face on an often stressful day. I can't wait to recommend her and her company to friends as they start wedding planning!

  • i can't say enough about this caterer. Caroline was our contact and she was terrific. Very responsive and helpful and she made sure everything was as we discussed. The food was wonderful. I had people come up to me and say how wonderful the sea bass was! When i walked around the tables to visit i noticed the plates were clean!! The late nite snacks were delicious as well.

  • Paramount did a fantastic job with our Bridgeport Art Center wedding. First of all, the food. The beautifully presented and absolutely delicious food was exactly what we had hoped for when looking for a caterer - true restaurant quality and for a large group of people. Paramount presented the food with perfect timing, at a perfect temperature, and with great consideration for guests' special needs or allergies. Fantastic. Second, working with Caroline was one of the best and luckiest decisions we made in the planning process. She was incredibly organized and went far beyond her job description in her willingness to help us with the brainstorming, timing, and overall logistics for the entire evening. It was entirely thanks to her that the ceremony, photographs, cocktail hour, and dinner progressed so smoothly. She even checked in with me during dinner to remind me to eat, to say hi to guests, and to let me know when toasts were about to begin! She's incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, an... Read more

  • Our wedding photographer and wedding planner suggested Paramount Catering to us. When I was researching caterers, I was yearning for a "farm to table," "rustic" chef who was all about the TASTE, presentation, and quality of ingredients. Paramount delivered! We thoroughlly enjoyed our pre-wedding tasting, and when we suggested we would like an "amuse bouche" to start off the seated meal, the head chef whipped up a few custom creations for us to try! Magnificent! The attention to plating and detail is to be admired from Paramount. Our guests STILL mention to us how much they LOVED our cocktail hors d'oeuvres and our seated dinner selections. (we recommend the skate wing! Oh, and the homemade donut bar!) We also were impressed by the sweet and kind professionalism of their service staff! Now, can we find an excuse to hire Paramount again for catering soon?? We love Paramount!!

  • We contacted Paramount Catering for our wedding. I worked with Carolyn on the menu and she invited us in for a tasting. The tasting room was very nice, unique decor and a very fun atmosphere. Unfortunately, we decided not to go with Paramount due to lack of flexibility and responsiveness. We needed them to work with our budget better and they just weren't really flexible with us. The menu options were awesome, but in comparison to the food taste other caterers were better. We also didn't feel a personal connection with Carolyn that we felt we had with another caterer. Another odd thing is that it took Carolyn like 3 months to follow-up with us after the tasting. Not sure if we fell off her radar or if something happened. It was strange and not professional.
