There aren't enough words to express how happy we were with our catering!!! The bride had a serious food allergy (requiring gluten free) and Eric was able to modify our selections without any trouble --- and they tasted AMAZING! He was so wonderful to work with - from the phone consult to the tasting and even they day of our wedding! Our guests were very happy with the food selection and the value was remarkable for the quality he provided!!

Chef Eric did a FANTASTIC job. The food was amazing! Everyone loved it. I'm glad we went with Chef du Jour. The process was so easy and the hardest part was picking out what we wanted because they had such a wide variety of foods to choose from. Their menu had food that made the kids, the vegetarians, and the gluten-free folks happy. I would recommend them to anyone.

Eric and his team are the absolute best. We met with quite a few caterers and Eric was easily the most reasonable one of them all. His food was spectacular, and working with him made wedding planning a lot less stressful for us. Once we met with him, we didn't even consider anyone else. Highly recommend!

Eric and his team were amazing. The staff working our wedding were so polite and went out of their way to make our wedding perfect. A few things that really make Chef du Jour Catering stand out:
Pricing - plated is cheaper than buffet - as Eric points out each person is only eating one entree in a plated dinner; half price for vendor meals; no fee for doing a tasting
Flexibility - created a special meal for our young guests; searched high and low for rainbow colored carrots; and re-created an app that I had liked from another event
Alcohol - handled our kegs, champagne and hard alcohol for no additional fees and stored the leftovers while we were on our honeymoon.
If my husband and I are ever in need of a caterer, Eric will be the first person we call.

Our venue gave us a list of preferred catering companies. Eric was our first call. It was a great fit from the first meeting. The groom wanted steak and with a guest list topping 200 we didn't think this was possible. Eric made it happen. The menu, which had something for everyone (including our vegan and vegetarian guests) was delicious and represented the Northwest. We had a last minute change of plans due to rain and Eric and his amazing team were able to switch gears and deliver cocktails and appetizers 45 minutes ahead of our planned time. We also had a few problems with wine - solved by Eric and his amazing team. This is the kind of professionalism you want. Can't speak to the value compared to other vendors but will definitely state that Eric is worth every dime you spend. Thanks Eric (and staff) - our day was perfect!

I had a great experience with Eric at Chef du Jour Catering and highly recommend using his company for your wedding.

There are two VERY IMPORTANT aspects about using Eric's services that (after speaking with over 12 caterers and doing hours of research) set him apart from the competition that any bride will appreciate. Because choosing a caterer is stressful, and unless you've used their services before, you just never actually know how it's going to go.

1) He is VERY FLEXIBLE. His answer to just about every question we had about whether or not we could do something, or have something a certain way, was: "Sure, we can do that."
2) His prices are VERY reasonable and STAY very reasonable. There are NO hidden fees or extra costs. He won't tell you he can do something and then say that it costs extra. His catering bill includes the set up, the cake cutting service, the pouring of the champagne at the table, the serving of the cake etc. All these things cost EXTRA at 99% of all other catering companies. Knowing I wasn't going to get a bill with charges for little extra things was a huge weight off my mind (I once read about a bride getting her final bill and being charged for the caterer helping to move some chairs...ridiculous).

Also, the food was great and I was very impressed by his staff. They were professional and very pleasant. The waiters were cheerful and you could tell they were really trying to do a good job. That meant a lot.

Eric is very easy to work with. He is able to accommodate different budgets and he is always available via email or phone. The food was delicious, we ate leftovers the next day. His menu has plenty of options. He was not present on the wedding date but his staff was very helpful.

WOW.



What can we say. Chef du Jour catered our wedding a month ago and end to end this was a superior experience. 



This is more than just a catering company, this is a full service planning and event service. Our planner Eric Youel handled every single detail from the food to the furniture to the glassware. He managed the entire set-up of our venue from the tables to the placement of favors and all decorative elements. Not a single detail was missed, not a single mistake was made. The entire lead-up to the event and the event itself ran without a hitch. Perfection. 



Most importantly the standard of the food was superb. Chef du Jour can create any kind of menu you heart desires. We were able to incorporate personal favorites and I was able to make sure that the menu incorporated a great selection of food. 



The staffing that Chef du Jour brings in for the event is top tier. Everything moved effortlessly, every need was catered for, every guest had everything they could have wanted. It was beyond professional and just perfect all round. 



We really can't use enough superlatives to describe the experience we've had with Chef du Jour.

Also, worth noting to prospective couples - the pricing is extremely clear. There are NO hidden costs here. What you are quoted is what you pay - all tips are included, all fees are included, it's completely transparent. I found that extremely refreshing. 



We'll definitely be back for future parties and events.
