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!

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.

Denny and his team were a pleasure to work with. After the wedding we received many compliments on the food. If you are looking for a great caterer, look no further than Chef & I catering. I would hire their services again in a heartbeat.

Everything about Chef & I was wonderful. It absolutely added to our special day. The Staff/Food and Portions were amazing in all aspects. The options were tough, I didn't know exactly which I wanted, so I honestly ate some of it all ha ha. I made a plate and ate more later, shhhhh don't tell my wife ;)

I used Chef and I Catering for our wedding on 8/8/15, the staff there were so professional throughout the whole process. They helped with every single aspect of our wedding, including setting up the timeline of the day so that everything ran smoothly. I have had their food at many weddings that I have been to so there was no doubt that were going to choose them. I had such a nice time tasting all of the delicious foods for the tasting, it was a hard choice for what we were going to pick for the big day as everything was so good. They are very reasonable priced and set up different plans for different budgets which was a nice thing. I would highly recommend them and will be using them if an event calls for it.
