  • Everybody that came to help with Sweet Baby Rays, was amazing! The chefs were awesome! The servers were attentive and great! The event director made sure everything went smoothly. The bartender was amazing! The whole wedding was perfect, and I contribute most of that to who we chose to cater it!!!! I literally can’t recommend them enough!

  • Many of our guests approached us to say it was the best wedding food they'd ever had! Our meals were the short ribs, BBQ chicken, and seafood pasta. The menu has great variety (traditional cuisine and BBQ!), and the whole team was so thoughtful and accommodating! We would 100% request their services again for any future catering.

  • We cannot recommend using SBR Events enough. So many guests at our wedding said it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding! The process was seamless and the girls are so kind and helpful. It was the best experience from start to finish.

    Hi Ashley! Thank so much for the wonderful review! We absolutely loved working with you and your new husband. Best of wishes!

  • We chose True Cuisine from 6 preferred caterers our venue partnered with. We were looking for food that both our families would enjoy. We ended up going with a "station" style option where guests got up to get food from different themed stations. This was decently budget friendly, allowed us to provide a nice variety of choices, and our guests LOVED it. Aside from the food, we felt very well taken care of by the catering staff. They set up and took down a lot of the decor things we brought (along with our wedding planner), and someone was always checking on us to make sure we had enough to eat and drink. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating, we really felt like we were in good hands, which we were not expecting from our caterer!

    Hi Kacie, We are truly grateful you allowed us to be a part of your special day! We really hope it was everything you could of dreamed of! Thank you!

  • I have nothing but good things to say, but I will highlight a few of the best things: - Extremely communicative - email and phone call response times within a few hours. - Very flexible - let us make lots of little changes and worked with our budget. - Day of - on time, setup perfectly, helpful and friendly staff. - Taste - our food was freaking amazing! People are still raving about it. You will regret NOT booking this company.

  • True Cuisine was the perfect choice for our wedding! There were SO many choices, and everyone we worked with was amazing! The food was absolutely delicious, and was very "us". True Cuisine took care of everything from hors d'oeuvres to late night snacks, and all of our guests raved about each part! True Cuisine was also fantastic about helping us to set our tables/centerpieces, and sent a representative to our final meeting with the venue to make sure that everyone was on the same page. The wait staff was incredibly attentive and responsive to all of our guests' needs. There was not a moment that any guest needed to wait for anything! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this company! I would recommend True Cuisine to anyone for their wedding/event!

  • We chose True Cuisine to be our caterer for the wedding, and worked with Lauren Winkler, who was extremely kind, helpful and professional throughout the entire process. The appetizers for cocktail hour were amazing, the dinner (steak, chicken and veggie options) were to die for. In addition to that the presentation of the meals were incredibly well decorated. But overall, the best part was the service. We did plated so we had several servers helping out at wedding of 200+ guests. The servers did not disappoint and were prompt all night. I can't think of anything that went wrong. If there is something that guests will always talk about it will be the food and service provided by Lauren and the rest of the True Cuisine staff. Thanks for everything!

  • My husband and I used True Cuisine to cater our wedding in Oak Park, IL and we are so incredibly grateful for them! We worked with Helina and she was absolutely amazing! They were accommodating of our budget and dietary restrictions (I have Celiac disease) and helped us so much with the planning of a lot of our wedding. True Cuisine is the perfect choice for event catering- we could not possibly recommend them enough (they’re even catering my sister’s wedding after doing such an amazing job with our wedding)! You will not be disappointed if you go with True Cuisine!

    Thank you so much Sarah! We loved working with you and can't wait to also cater your sisters big day as well! :)

  • True Cuisine catered our wedding at the Danada House in August 2018. We called most of the caterers on their preferred vendor list to ask questions and our introductory phone call with them lasted close to 45 minutes. During this time, they made many suggestions to us based on experience and also were able to answer every single question we had at the time. Because of their thoroughness and attention to detail, we went with True Cuisine to cater our wedding. A bonus was that they brought an oven to the venue since Danada House doesn't have a kitchen (we wanted to make sure our guests got their food hot) and they utilize fresh and local ingredients. They helped us every step of the way leading up to the wedding, making friendly suggestions along the way and taking care of everything they could for us. They answered our emails in a timely manner and were so patient and helpful. On our wedding day, our guests (and us of course) LOVED the food, including both the hors d'oeuvres served duri...

  • The food was great and my wedding guests are still raving about it! Staff was there on time and made everything look great. Only complaint: we had rented different flatware to use and at the end of the night it was all thrown in a box filthy so my mom was at the venue till 1am cleaning flatware. If they don't clean outside flatware, that'd fine, I just wish we would have known so we could have prepared for that. They knew we were bringing it so a heads up would have been appreciated.

    Thank you so much for the feedback Sheila! We are very happy to hear that you and your guests enjoy the food. We sincerely apologize for the miscommunication regarding the silverware. These are the type of things we need to hear to better improve our communication with clients and the overall process.

  • We used True Cuisine for our December 2018 wedding. They were extremely flexible and easy to work with especially with all of my menu changes! We hired them only about 30 days prior to the event and they managed this very short timeline with ease. The food was great and priced well. Lauren was great and super professional. The on-site staff were amazing from set up to breakdown. Mu venue allowed me to purchase my own alcohol but we used True Cuisine to staff the bar. My only complaint was that the bartenders left out a tip jar that I didn’t know about until near the end of the wedding. I was mortified as I was providing a large tip and do NOT expect my guests to tip the bar staff at my wedding. I did contact them ago and was told that tip jars are not their policy and they would follow up with the manager. Otherwise no issues and I encourage you to get the late night pretzel bar. It was a highlight!!!!!!

  • We used Sweet Baby Ray’s for our catering and bartending services for our June 2019 wedding at the Redfield Estate. The food catering service was fantastic, but the bartending services left something to be desired, and that is the reason for only 4 stars. Food: We were so thrilled with the food on our wedding night. In particular, the airline chicken with white BBQ sauce (do yourself a favor and try the white BBQ sauce) was sooooo good, even better than at our tasting, but every dish was fantastic. The staff were friendly and attentive, making sure we had a plate full of everything at the start of the dinner. Most importantly, our contact, Lauren Winkler, was incredible to work with. She was so prompt and thorough in all of her responses. She ended up on my phone’s most frequent contact lists, right alongside my husband and immediate family, she was that integral to planning! I cannot recommend her highly enough. She worked with us through myriad edits to our menu and contrac... Read more
