As a vegetarian and in working with a strict and small budget, I was extremely happy when I first found Artfully Delicious. Chef Kriss met with us and explained that they are the only caterer in Chicago to work with clients on a sliding scale and can work within any budget. Pricing Artfully Delicious against other caterers and comparing their menu against other caterers (who seemed to only offer the 'chicken or fish' option), we were very excited to hire them even though they were not as experienced or had many online reviews available.

That said, I have to advise brides to only hire this caterer if you are extremely detail orientated and are OK with going through every step with this caterer. This is not someone you hire and then just trust to have everything set up the day of the event. We signed the contract with about 10 months before the wedding them but had to make quite a few adjustments to the contract (and price) only a few months before the wedding because they did not call the reception venue before writing out our contract to make sure they had the proper licensing and insurance paperwork. We also had continuously go over details such as the dish rental order and find our own ice vendor (luckily we asked about ice or we would not have had any!). Most caterers that are a little more 'by the book' would give you a lot more peace of mind but if you want something a little more interesting and are willing to be patient with going over small details, I would recommend this caterer.
