When I was viewing a venue, I saw staff from Chef & I setting up for a wedding that day. I found a business card on one of the tables, and gave them a call a few days later. From there, Denny and his team went above and beyond to make sure that my wedding day went without a hitch! I chose buffet style for the wedding, and the food was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend the sweet & sour meatballs for the cocktail hour - I think one of my groomsmen ate an entire bowl of them!
Chef & I Catering made sure that the head table was treated like royalty - We came in and had food from the cock tail hour waiting for us, champagne for toasting, and we were serviced by the wait staff. I was very happy with the service of the wait staff on the day of the wedding.
Denny kept in contact and made sure that we had every detail mapped out and that every question was answered. I was so grateful to have a vendor who was on top of communication! If I ever need a catering service again, I will definitely be using Chef & I!

Denny is great! He and his staff are super flexible and worked closely with us to build the perfect menu! He was also a straight shooter and didn't try to up sell us on anything. He actually helped us find ways to save money which I thought was really genuine! He was also just a super sweet guy in general. The food was INCREDIBLE- our guests were raving about it all night. They had all of our delicious leftovers packed up for us with sweet notes! I would pick them over and over again!!!

We hired The Chef and I Catering for our wedding and we couldn't have been happier with the decision! The entire process of working with "The Chef and I" was extremely easy and fun. From the time we first met for our food tasting to the day of the wedding, the caterer was very thorough in making sure we got exactly what we wanted. The food they cooked for us was absolutely delicious and we got many compliments from our guests. They even helped offer food for guests that had food allergies which was a nice touch. My wife and I highly recommend "The Chef and I" Catering!

My husband and I can honestly say that we had the best experience with The Chef & I catering for our wedding. Denny, Vikki and Chef Rey were all wonderful to work with, and people are still talking about the amazing food! Our reception was held at Laube Hall in Freeport in June, and we had approximately 250 guests to serve which we were afraid of how time consuming it would be. The Chef &I had everyone served in less than 20 minutes! The tables were set perfectly, and the linens, table settings and decor were beautiful! Denny responded quickly to any questions or concerns we had throughout the planning process, and overall made everything stress-free for that day! They were the first caterer we met with, and we enjoyed the tasting so much we didn't want to look anywhere else. I highly recommend The Chef & I to anyone who has recently been engaged because I want them to have the same wonderful experience as we did!

I cannot say enough good things about everyone at the Chef and I Catering. They were the first caterer that we met with, and we loved them so much that we never even met with anyone else. Denny was great at providing recommendations and responding to emails. When we went in for our tasting, they even remembered that I was a vegetarian and had extra things for me to try since I wouldn't be able to sample many of the menu items. We ended up going with stations and people raved about the food! The food quality was great, and their prices can't be beat. Plus, their service is exceptional. Truly the best.

We had a really fantastic experience with The Chef and I. They are very easy to work with, affordable, professional, and high quality. Upon our initial inquiry, Denny was very responsive and took the time to learn about the kind of event we wanted. We had multiple conversations throughout the planning process during which Denny reviewed details to make sure we had all of our bases covered. This was very reassuring as we were figuring out the planning process as we were going. All of the staff are very personable and professional, and my family commented on how much they enjoyed meeting and talking with Chef Rey at the event. We had a variety of dietary preferences and requirements, including meat lovers, vegetarians, and guests with Celiac Disease, and the Chef and I was able to easily accommodate all needs with one menu. We received many compliments on the food! Overall, we are extremely satisfied with The Chef and I Catering and are so happy we chose them for our event!

Chef and I catered our December 2015 wedding - and we couldn't be happier with our decision to hire them. They were super responsive and helpful through the whole process. They really went above and beyond to make the day stress free for us. Plus the food was awesome! We got lots of compliments from our guests, and we got to enjoys leftovers after - which was a nice bonus since a lot of other caterers don't offer that. I found out afterwards that they even went out of their way to make sure my sister in law with a food allergy had enough to eat (I hadn't asked for this ahead of time, figured she could fend for herself - but was super nice of them to accommodate her, totally unexpected).

Let me just start by saying my husband and I really like to eat good food. What makes or breaks most weddings for us is the menu. So given that, coupled with the fact that we had a budget on the smaller side, I was worried we weren't going to be able to afford a caterer that was also satisfying to our palate. Those worries were put to rest the first time we met with The Chef and I. Denny was wonderful to talk to at our first meeting, and we got to try every dish we were interested in. From the moment we tasted our first bite, we were hooked. The food was seriously wonderful, and our least expensive option by far! They absolutely exceeded our expectations by far on quality and taste of food, as well as budget. After our first meeting, we had everything decided except our second entree. We were able to come back a second time and try another entree for no charge. And although we were just tasting the entree, we were served an entire meal. Once we signed our contract, Denny was very responsive to emails and willing to work with us on anything. Two weeks before the wedding, he called me and we went over every single detail, which was incredibly reassuring. Once the big day arrived, I had no stress that what we had planned was going to occur without a hitch. The service was great and the food was delicious. People were raving about it all night (and still are). You will not go wrong if you choose The Chef and I for your wedding catering.
