The food was delicious and plentiful. The guest were very complimentary and Denise was great. She managed the evening well and did a great job of trouble shooting a crisis that arose early in the day. I would use them agin and insist on Denise. She is very professional.

Denise and the entire Chef Brothers’ staff were exceptional. We had a small wedding with about 55 people and Denise worked with us one-on-one to make it elegant and fun. She was able to get all of the special items we requested and took care of everything for us on the day of the wedding, which included last minute guest cancellations/additions and rearranging seats at tables on the fly. All of our guests raved about the food, especially the eggplant rollatini and the honey glazed baby carrots. I would highly recommend Chef Brothers’ for any event.

Chef Brothers was amazing! The food was delicious (as I was scarfing it down on our wedding night LOL--as in, I didn't get much to eat at our wedding). Not only did they provide us with great food, but wonderful service and Denise is THE BOMB DOT COM. I gave her set-up instructions and she did everything perfectly and utilized leftover decorations in beautiful ways--she even let us pick up our stuff on our own time. We were allowed to come to two tastings because we were both sick the first one which was nice. Basically, they took care of us which is all we could ask for, and they were very sweet! Denise truly made the experience with Chef Brothers WONDERFUL.

On a side note: we were debating between Celebrations and Chef Brothers--so we ate at Cafe C twice ("same food" as Celebrations--that's what they told us) and TWICE it made me nauseated and that was the end of Celebrations in my mind. And Chef Brothers is more affordable!

Everyone at Chef Brothers -- especially Denise -- made it easy and fun to plan and celebrate our beautiful, slighty-quirky, dream wedding. Denise took SO much of the stress out of our preparations, and her experience and dedication to detail made the entire planning process incredibly smooth. Chef Peter's culinary treats were delicious... EVERYONE raved about the food. (Even those of us with special dietary needs and sensitive stomachs!) The wait staff was literally the best I have ever encountered, making us and our guests feel like royalty. And in case that weren't enough, Chef Brothers went above and beyond to recommend other top-notch vendors, who also did not disappoint.

When you book Chef Brothers, you get delectable food AND you get staff who truly care about making your event successful and joyous for everyone involved. Denise will personally ensure that you are pleased with every aspect of your day. I am so glad we used Chef Brothers, and can't imagine how we would've pulled off our wedding day without them!

From the first meeting with Denise, I felt completely relaxed about my daughter, Dallas' wedding. We had interviewed other caterers and I was very concerned about all of the "chores/tasks" that I was going to have to deal with. We are part of a very large sociable extended family and I am the ring leader for parties. I am also a notary and I do a lot of weddings but I did not want to deal with 100 guests wedding for my daughter. Denise took care of every little detail that my daughter or I mentioned from the food choices, decorations, a candy table, bar, are just a few. I know she is a "pro" at this wedding planning but I can't say enough about how at ease she made Dallas, me, and my husband feel. The weather/rain was an issue due to the wedding being outside at Kanapaha. But as with everything, Denise always had a backup plan for every detail. In addition to her taking charge of details, she also was always conscientious of price and managed in our budget. Denise made my job extremely simple -- I showed up as the mother of the bride and had fun!

I was firstly kind of worried about the food because all my guests are Asian and they usually prefer to Asian food. However, almost everyone likes the food and there is NOTHING left after the wedding when I was trying to pack some food back home. They not only did great job on catering, but also give you advice and help you do the decoration, just like event planner. It is really great and pleasant experience with them. I will definitely recommend them to my friends.

I found Denise the Coordinator very helpful and flexible. She worked well with the other vendors and the management at our venue. Chef Brothers also was helpful in setting up for the wedding and lots of little things that they didn't have to do. We were happy with the presentation and taste of the food. Our guests complimented the food and service Chef Brothers provided.

Chef Brothers was amazing! We planned a wedding reception in October for our June date. Everything was amazing -- the food was delicious, the prices were as quoted, the set up was beautiful. Denise paid close attention to all of the details to make the evening perfect. We had so many compliments on the food - not only the quality but the variety.
I would strongly recommend them to anyone planning an event of this type.

Our venue (Jolie Events) called eight days before the wedding to let us know they'd gone out of business. We had no venue, no caterer and no decorations. We were introduced to Denise an event coordinator at Chef Brothers Custom Catering who helped us put a reception together in less than 5 days! Chef Brothers had another event they were catering for that weekend but said they could do both. I can't imagine the stress level making all this happen in such a short period of time but I have to say it was magic! We had compliment after compliment saying the food was fantastic. As a wedding photographer I've had many a dinner at weddings but this was by far the best. These people get the mark of excellence from us!

Thanks to Chef Brothers custom catering our wedding was a dream come true!! The staff were absolutely fantastic and did such a great job accommodating ALL my guests (even though there ended up being more than we expected), while keeping a smile on their faces the entire time. Due to our unique situation, being that our previous reception and catering venue cancelled our event just 8 days before our big day, Chef Brothers catering was also able to beautifully put everything together last min. and you would have never known. As for the food... it was just incredibly delicious! Tons of people informed me afterwards it was the BEST catered food they've ever had, and of course I have to agree! If you are looking for perfection and trust worthy people to make it happen, I HIGHLY recommend using Chef Brothers to cater your event. You won't be disappointed!! Thanks again Chef Brothers Custom Catering for making our wedding reception so perfect!!

The food for the wedding was absolutely delicious! Everything from the hors d'ouevres, to the salads, to the main course and sides were AMAZING! Everyone RAVED about the food! We were more than pleased with the wonderful job Anna did in coordinating the event, setting out the decor perfectly, and making sure all the details were taken care of! We will be using Chef Brothers for our family company's events from now on! Thanks to Chef Peter, Anna, and the rest of the crew for doing such an outstanding job! They made the whole ordeal stress-free and were so helpful!

Chef Brothers was great! The food was delicious and the presentation was great. They were flexible and always found a way to fit us into their schedule, even when they were in the process of moving to a new location. Denise, the wedding coordinator, went above and beyond to make our day special. She went out and bought 90 plates from thrift stores because we asked once if they had an eclectic collection of china and didn't charge anything extra. She did everything we asked and went above and beyond. Fred, the chef, was great as well. For our tasting, he gave us so much food that we went home with four boxes. Everything was clear and concise and we knew exactly what we were getting and what we were being charged for. The prices were reasonable for the quality of service and food.

We used Chef Brothers for the catering at our wedding and was SO happy with them. Denise was our coordinator and she did so much more than deal with the food. She was like a wedding planner in a way and helped me with a lot of little details. You can't beat the deal that Chef Brothers offers, and the personalized service that they provide. The food was delicious! Our reception didn't start until 9 pm, so we went with heavy hors d'oeuvres. The food was so good and there was plenty. We had several guests remark about how good the food was. The wait staff was excellent as well! Thanks Chef Brothers!

Denise and Chef Brothers are wonderful! They went above and beyond to make sure every detail was taken care of for our wedding, including making centerpieces for bar tables that would match the ones that we had done for the tables the week of once we realized that we would need extras! Plus, I got multiple comments from guests about how good the food was. I definitely recommend them!

Overall I was very pleased with Chef Brothers Catering. Having prior experience in the industry has made me a bit more critical and my expectations a bit higher than most I'd assume. For a privately run small business I'd say they did a fantastic job. Probably with a few more staff on the event planning side they would have earned 5 stars. There were a few things that were overlooked the day of that made absolutely no difference in my experience but were an oversight nonetheless.

We had Chef Brothers Cater our wedding. We had the breakfast buffet for our dinner. The food was great but they only brought coffee and water for us to drink and in the contract we were supposed to have like 2-3 kinds of juices and tea. WELL we did't get them which I wasn't happy about. What really upset me was I was assured by one of the owners "Peter", that everything would be there for the wedding. When we called after the wedding and asked Peter what had happened he took no responsibility for this matter and instead blamed it on me and my husband because we should have looked over the contract. Other than that he was professional till that point.
