Denny and the staff at Chef and I were wonderful to work with. We got married on 09/20/14. We met and came up with a menu and schedule for our day almost a year before our wedding. As the wedding got closer, Denny was wonderful about keeping in touch, letting me know what he needed and when, and also was a big help in all of the "little things" that are easy to get missed in the craziness of the wedding. We got married at a place that Denny had never worked with before, and Denny was able to go out and see the venue prior to us even meeting to discuss. It was a big help since we did not have a wedding planner.

THE FOOD WAS AMAZING! We had so many compliments on the food. We had chicken romano, pork with cranberry/blueberry sauce, pasta with their signature sauce, potatoes, and greenbeans. Well worth the price. It was really nice to have them take care of all of the linens, silverware, and china so we did not have to worry about renting those items. Everything was also packed up after the wedding. The staff that were there during the wedding were so helpful in making sure that we knew what was going on and when they were leaving that night. I would highly recommend using their services.

Denny and his crew were a great team to work with for our wedding. We booked very early (a year and a half before the wedding) so that made it very easy come crunch time because we had pretty much every detail ironed out. Denny was a breeze to work with and had our best interests in mind when it came to budget and choice of food. We got many compliments from our guests.

On the day before our wedding, they were at our venue early already setting up tables and linens. On the day of, everything was pretty much ready to go and as the bride, that let a load off of my shoulders knowing someone was there making sure everything was to go as planned. I cannot express how great our day was and the fact that the Chef and I crew was there to help, i'm sure, had a great deal to do with that! I highly recommend Chef and I for your catering needs!

Our wedding was July 19th, 2014. We had the Chef & I as our caterer and could not have been more pleased with the services. Not only was the food and service outstanding, but they were flexible, organized and professional in all aspects. The chef even added a personal touch by cutting us a beach themed fruit appetizer that went perfect with our beach themed wedding. I highly recommend this vendor for future bride & grooms!

The Chef & I catering was fantastic! From the first time I met the staff at the tasting and tried their food, I knew I picked the perfect caterer. Denny was an absolute pleasure to work with. He made sure everything was taken care of. He was easy to get a hold of and was also so nice and funny. Chef Rey did an amazing job. Everyone absolutely loved the food and told us throughout the night how good it was. It truly was so delicious. We were able to have amazing food on our budget. Vicky did a great job making sure my venue would look perfect.
They made this whole process so simple and easy for me. I did not have to worry about a thing. They were such an important part of what helped make my wedding reception perfect. I cannot say enough good things about them. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Denny, Vicki, Chefs, and all their staff were both professional and personal when working with Jon, our parents, and myself on our wedding plans.

The Chef & I went above and beyond to make our wedding day special. They helped to customize our menu for specific food needs and did it well! They offered many unique options that soar above the typical 'wedding food'; and to top it off, their prices beat most of their competitors! Their food was delicious and our guests continue to rave about it! Denny and his crew helped us tremendously throughout the entire wedding planning process and truly showed that they cared about our day. They especially helped when it came to planning the timeline of our reception and helping us think through all the details and logistics of the whole day. The Chef & I are definitely the best out there and my husband and I are so glad we chose to use them for our wedding.

From the first meeting and the free food tasting....we knew the Chef & I Catering was for us!! Professional, helpful, and out of this world food. As the mother of the bride, I had many, many questions and all my emails and phone calls were answered promptly and I felt like I was talking to my best friend. We had approx. 380 guests at the wedding and just about everyone made their way to me just to say how good the food was! I would use The Chef & I Catering again and again!!

My husband and I used the Chef and I for our wedding in May 2014. Everything was perfect, and Denny and his team were easy to work with. My fiance is Filipino, so he wanted to have a whole roast pig at the wedding - this was non-negotiable. After going through three other caterers who said they couldn't do this, Denny and his head chef Rey were up for the challenge. They created a custom menu combining Polish and Asian cuisine in a station format that worked for all of our guests. No one went hungry, and we got so many compliments on the food and the service. I highly recommend them!

The Chef and I were absolutely wonderful for our wedding! Denny, the owner, was flexible with a meeting time and was highly recommended by Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall because he has worked with them the longest. That helped tremendously because he knew the set-up of the building and area and knew what worked the best, so that is what we went with. We also met Chef Rey, who is so bubbly and friendly, and his food was delicious! My favorite was their rigatoni with homemade tomato basil sauce...yumm!! I would recommend them for any event. The guys and their staff were wonderful that night and guests really enjoyed the food! One thing they helped us incorporate in to the food was homemade apple dumplings! Guests were able to rsvp with a cake or dumpling option and the staff was able to warm up the dumplings and sauce and serve it to our guests! Loved that! : ) Again, everything was wonderful and I thank everyone at Chef and I Catering for a fantastic night!
