  • I cannot recommend working with True Cuisine more for your wedding or event! My wedding was October 26, 2019, and I could not have been more pleased with how everything went. I began looking at caterers in September of 2018. From the beginning, Meghann was helpful and accomodating. When she heard that I was returning to Alaska from Illinois in a few days, she quickly helped book a tasting so I could sample the catering options before I headed out of town. My dad and I were so impressed with the quality of the food and the service that we quickly booked with True Cuisine. Throughout the process, Meghann was extremely helpful whenever we had questions or concerns. She met my mother at the venue a couple months in advance to go over everything and help discuss how things should be set up. We also worked with Erin on finalizing some details, and she was extremely helpful as well. Between Meghann and Erin, I knew everything would go smoothly on the day of the wedding. On our wedding day, we... Read more

  • True Cuisine was ABSOLUTELY amazing to work with! Lauren Winkler was my main contact and not only is she a dream to work with, but she went above and beyond to ensure we were happy, even helping us build our room layout with our wedding coordinator! The food was to die for - all of our guests were raving about how amazing the food was! GO CHECK OUT TRUE CUISINE if you care about the quality of your wedding food! No dry fish or chicken here!

  • Lauren and her group were excellent from start to finish. Lauren helped me plan the food exactly how I envisioned. She was very responsive and I really recommend. You can tell she loves what she does. My only complaint is that we paid for a certain amount of people and day of we had about 20 less then what we paid and we ran out of some food. Also, the tamales were not cooked all the way. Overall though it was a pleasure working with them and they made our day a little more speacial.

    Thank you Christa for your kind and honest words! We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and surely will have this looked into by our management team. We truly hope you are enjoying this new chapter! Best Wishes from the entire team!

  • We loved all our wedding vendors, but True Cuisine truly made our wedding everything we had dreamed about. We worked with Lauren who was THE BEST from day 1. She was super fast in responding to all of my emails and questions, helped us pick and choose food/linens/silverware/etc. While staying within budget. At The Grove, we had a list of caterers to choose from and True Cuisine wasn’t the least expensive or most expensive of my options, they were right in the middle. But, out of all my options, they were the most responsive and the food at their tastings was just amazing. I feel like we were treated like royalty not just on our day, but throughout the months of planning. The days leading up to the wedding/day of, Lauren and her team were very prepared and made sure we had everything we needed. They worked with my coordinator to set up/decorate and it all looked beautiful. The venue is so small and we had a big guest list but Lauren assured me they would make it work and they defini...

  • We just had our wedding catered by True Cuisine and I cannot recommend them highly enough. We worked with Meghann, who is a straight-up life saver, especially since we were planning from 2,000 miles away. She was invaluable during the planning process, and the catering staff on the day of was superb. The food was great, they were incredibly gracious and helpful, and they even let us customize some menu options to include traditional family favorites. 11/10 would recommend!

  • True Cuisine was the PERFECT choice for our wedding. They were a bit more pricey than other caterers we had sat down with, but their food was FAR supreme. We had been to other tastings and left thinking "eh, that could work! I'm just not sure..." But as soon as we had our tasting with True Cuisine we knew we HAD to have them at the wedding. GET THE STRAWBERRY BALSAMIC SALAD. Every single guest loved it and people are still trying to recreate it in their homes!! The honey cornbread? SO GOOD. They were so easy to work with and very responsive. Sue the day of event coordinator was absolutely perfect, she helped make the day go as smooth as possible. Sarah and her husband had great ideas in what and how to make our day perfect. The whole staff was professional and kind. I truly appreciated everything they did for us! Side note, one of our favorite things was the presentation of food. They had a rustic, beautiful set up for the buffet we chose which is so different from other companies basi... Read more

  • 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 love hearing this! We would love to work with you both again! Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your special day :)

  • Lauren and True Cuisine were incredible to work with! Being an out of town Bride (living in Denver with our wedding in Chicago) Lauren and her team made it incredibly easy to communicate with and plan our wedding. Everything from our menu tasting to the timeline to the day-of details was perfect. As someone with severe food allergies, Lauren and her team made sure that I could actually eat the food and it still tasted good for our guests. I am so appreciative of all the small details they put into making sure our day was perfect and up to our expectations. Even coordinating with our vendors was incredibly helpful and appreciative. They even helped us set out our late night snack from another catering company. We highly recommend True Catering and their incredibly dedicated staff!

  • 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.

  • The overall running theme of everything we heard after our wedding, was "best food ever!". Everyone RAVED about the alabama white chicken we had and how smoothly the night went! True Cuisine worked closely with our venue (The Brix on the Fox) and the night couldn't have run any smoother! Meghan was a great contact to have and she made the whole experience from tasting, menu planning, and making sure we stayed within our budget easy! She worked so easily with our planner throughout and easily responded to all our emails as well. I was hesitant about a buffet, but everyone raved about the food and everyone got through in what seemed like minutes! It was a beautiful display and they helped turn the rooms during each change and made sure our desserts and late night snacks were out and ready! It was a great night, and True Cuisine and all their staff were wonderful!

    What a beautiful day it was indeed! Thank you so much for the review! We hope you are enjoying the newlywed life :)

  • 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 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

Therefore, we appreciate your honest feedback so that we are able to continue to improve our services! This is something that we will discuss with our entire bartending team to make sure this is corrected. We absolutely loved working with you and best wishes with this exciting new chapter!
