Chef's Expressions was a dream come true for our wedding catering. Jen in particular was lovely to work with - she helped us through the process from the get-go, working with us on what we wanted for our menu, helping find all the extras we wanted, keeping in touch and answering our many questions as the day approached. On our wedding day the food that Chef's Expressions served was not only incredibly tasty and beautiful-looking, Jen also made sure all our decorations and set-up in general was executed just as we wanted it. All our guests repeatedly complimented us on the food, the service, the options provided, and the professionalism of all the staff that helped us, in particular Jen. Overall I would highly recommend Chef's Expressions for wedding catering services!

I couldn't say thank you enough for the work that chef's expressions and Jen Pellegrino did for our wedding. From the beginning stages when we were looking for a caterer to the actual wedding day - everything was perfection. People loved the food and, what's even better, we didn't need to worry about a thing the night of the wedding. Jen took care of it all, including packing up our car at the end of the night and sending home a "midnight snack" with leftovers from dinner. In need of a caterer, don't look anywhere else.

I can not say enough amazing things about Chef's expressions. Their work is incredibly flawless. We worked with Bonny Opper their senior event design consultant for our wedding on 4/26/14 in Baltimore City. She was amazing. She is so knowledgable of every aspect of a wedding reception, from the way chairs should be placed, to an outline of a room, to how guests should be greeted. She knows exactly how a party should flow and to make the maximum use out of any area. Her assistants are equally wonderful. And the food is delicious! We got amazing compliments all night about how great our food was and how uniquely set up everything was. We did a formal version on 3 food stations where the food was beautifully plated for each guest by a trained and knowledgable chef. Bonny and her staff made our wedding day flawless from the cocktail hour to the reception. She had great ideas of how to keep our guests happy and full of drinks and food. She also took care of contacting all of my other vendors and coordinated everything with them for the day of too. The linens they use and the lighting and the table/chair rentals are also perfect. I wanted chevron table linens and she found the perfect ones. Bonny also made sure my husband and I were ushered off to our own personal room at the site so we had a chance to enjoy some delicious hors d'oeuvres and a drink before jumping into the ceremony festivities. She and her assistants were very easy to get ahold of and answer questions in a very short time. And all the items I dropped off to her before the wedding (decor, guest book etc) was perfectly placed exactly where I wanted it. I can not say enough amazing things about Bonny and Chef's Expressions. I would highly HIGHLY recommend them for your wedding or any party that requires catering. You can not do any better then them.

It is no secret that Chef's Expressions is great. I hired them to cater my wedding at the suggestions of my wedding planners. My husband and I worked with Bonny, who is wonderful. We went with passed hors d'oeuvres, food stations as well as having the pastry chef make the cake. The food was fantastic, we received so many compliments! Now the cake: I wanted a cake instead of the trendy cupcakes, pies, etc because I think they're pretty and add to the wedding decor. I sent a picture to Bonny for what I wanted the cake to look like thinking it would be some version of my request. When I got to the reception I was FLOORED. The cake was absolutely stunning, it was exactly the design that I wanted - it was simple and beautiful. The cake was also delicious! Wedding cake is never good. This wedding cake was the best I've ever had and so many guests approached me telling me how much they loved the cake. My husband and I went with an open bar. The signature cocktail that Chef's created was wonderful. We were also able to substitute out the standard beers for 3 beers that we really love for, what I thought, to be a very reasonable price. The staff at the wedding was friendly, professional and efficient. I could not have been more happy with Chef's Expressions!

Chef's Expressions was the caterer for my wedding this past February and they were amazing. Before I go on I must publicly thank and praise Bonny, Christine and Chris for their professionalism, kindness, responsiveness, patience, and assistance. Literally, I could not have gotten married without them! Top-tier food was a priority for my spouse and I at our wedding and Chef's Expressions did not disappoint. They put together an amazing and customized menu for us. The meal was elegant, filling, and delicious. So many guests have told me that this was the best food they have ever eaten at a wedding; exactly what we were hoping for. The bartenders poured perfect drinks, the waiters all looked great, were quick and polite, and the setup was perfect. Bonny helped us create the customized look we wanted for the space. She sat with us patiently while we selected linens, tableware, chairs, and tables. They could not have been better and everything went perfectly. Chef's Expressions coordinated the day perfectly and did everything with ease and grace. They are worth every penny!

I got married at the George Peabody Library in Baltimore, MD and our caterer, Chef’s Expressions, delivered beyond belief. The combination of phenomenal food, stellar service, and excellent business savvy set Chef's apart from the rest. Chef's acted as our caterer, wedding-day coordinator for the ceremony/ reception, and vendor manager.

During the year of wedding planning, Chef's was always prompt in responding to my questions from budget and billing inquiries to wedding-day details such as the cake design, food tasting, menu card, floor plan, and reception setup. I always got a response to my questions within a couple of hours from either Bonny or Christine, even if just to tell me that they were out and would respond in detail the next day.

We had an excellent tasting of our menu a couple of months prior to the wedding, but the wedding-day food was even better! Both my husband and I got numerous compliments about the high quality of food and the beautiful presentation of the courses. I didn't have one guest complain about the food. Quite the opposite-one guest even said that the beef tenderloin they served was “actually steak”- the right pinkness, temperature, and tenderness. Everyone raved about the carrot cake with cream cheese icing filling, which was the perfect choice for our fall wedding. Krista was our personal server and made sure we had a taste of all of our hors d’oeuvres and that our entrees came out warm when we were seated and not greeting guests. Chef’s handled all of our guests’ dietary restrictions perfectly. We cannot stress enough the compliments we received on our food and how the quality of food will make or break your wedding.

Hiring Chef's to caterer our wedding was the best decision we made and, after seeing their spectacular delivery for our wedding, a no-brainer. Guests remember the food and venue more than anything else, so hire Chef's and make a great lasting impression!

As I started my wedding planning, food was at the top of my list of priorities. I knew I wanted it to be a fabulous meal. I am so glad we chose Chef's! Bonny and Christine did a terrific job helping us to design the meal and fit within our budget. They were great with suggestions and advice and accommodating with our special requests (including several meals that had to be customized based on severe allergies).
We received so so many compliments on the food. Many said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Our ice cream sundae bar (hand made ice cream custom flavors) was a hit!

They took really good care of us on the day of our wedding, sending out a tray of the our cocktail hour appetizers while we took photos and sending us home with a large amount of food!

Both Christine and Bonny were wonderful to work with. Christine, especially, leading up to the wedding and on the day of was just incredible. She ran the event and coordinated the major players. My fiancee and I just enjoyed the wedding and never had to worry about a thing! One of my guests had a severe allergy and needed a special meal. He is also quite the foodie :) He was so impressed with the food, said it was an excellent meal and that he had someone "watching" his service the entire night to make sure the correct plates were being delivered. That care and attention is just top notch!

our food was a complete hit at the wedding, guests are still talking about it. We had a very clear vision of what we wanted (three different stations - pierogies, salmon, sliders) and they were able to execute it despite our venue's restrictions regarding open flames. When we went to our tasting and wanted some specific changes, they were able to accomodate. Christine was very responsive and every detail we discussed was implemented beautifully. they were also able to come in at the budget we needed.

Chef's Expressions was one of two caterer's we were allowed to use at our venue and we selected them b/c they were more responsive to our questions than the other company before we signed a contract. Bonny and Christine were very easy to work with and are the reason our wedding day went smoothly. They acted as our day-of-coordinators as well as our caterer, and were much more available to answer our questions than any rep from our venue. They made sure neither of us had to worry about a thing on our wedding day. There was a small miscommunication between Chef's and the venue about storing decor overnight, but it did not create a problem.

The menu Bonny helped us create (6 apps, soup/salad, and entree) was delicious, and we were able to do a tasting a few months in advance. They also allowed us to customize our drinks package to serve beer & wine we requested. Chef's Expressions cost a lot more than we initially expected to spend on catering, but the quality and service were worth every penny!

Melanie was our caterer, and from day one was the most thoughtful, warm, helpful, reponsive professional we worked with of any of our vendors. Even though our wedding was 19 months in the making, Melanie was there for every decision, every problem, every solution! We were so very lucky to have her! That was just one positive of many. Chef's customized our menu to what we wanted, and even though they gave us a menu of options, they allowed us to make subtle changes to the recipes to make it our own, and believe us, the food was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! You will have many choices to select from in terms of caterers, but there is only one choice we would recommend (and we interviewed several), and that is Chef's Expressions!

I got married about two weeks ago at the George Peabody Library in Baltimore. Chef's Expressions was absolutely wonderful orchestrators of my wedding day. We had chosen not to hire a wedding coordinator or anything of the sort and totally relied on Bonny, Christine, and the rest of the Chef's Expressions team to keep everything running on schedule. I don't think it would be an exaggeration to say that everything ran so smoothly and perfectly at the wedding...we received many compliments to that effect from our guests... and my mom and I did not ever once have to concern ourselves with making sure the details of the day were as we had requested because everything was already set exactly how we had asked.

And, not to be left out, the food and appetizers were delish! As the bride, I was assigned a designated waitstaff person who made certain that I took sufficient time during the cocktail hour to get a bite myself, which was absolutely essential to getting through the night without feeling exhausted or starving. We also had ample time to eat our tasty dinner during the dining portion and still have plenty of time to circulate among our guests and greet everyone. In sum, you would be in great hands with Chef's Expressions on your big day!

We worked with Melanie to cater our July wedding at the American Visionary Art Museum. She was so helpful and worked to coordinate all the details of my largely DIY wedding. She was incredibly accommodating and made the experience so streamlined. The day of the wedding, the company executed everything to perfection. Feedback on our food was wonderful, and the staff was friendly and professional. We found that this was a wonderful value for the money, since Chef's Expressions didn't just serve food, but truly ran the wedding day. Melanie is a consummate professional, and her experience was evident every step of the way. Working with her was so easy, and the results were amazing!

Can't recommend Chef's Expressions strongly enough. Bonny is amazing--always professional, capable, comforting, accommodating. Everyone we interacted with on her staff was equally friendly and helpful, and Christine was particularly helpful in the run-up and on the day of the event. We're so appreciative of everything they did-- and they really did so much! They helped us stage-manage the entire wedding, and everything seemed to go perfectly smoothly.
The food and cake were absolutely delicious and really beautifully presented. We've received lots of compliments after the wedding! Very thoughtful about vegetarian and gluten-free options, too.

Bonny and the staff at Chef's Expressions are superb. She is professional, organized, means business but is very personable, and she genuinely took all the worry out of my planning. Bonny answered all of my questions quickly, offered advice when I asked and gave me the guidance I needed for my big day! I was not a lover of planning, so Bonny told me about what she'd seen and had experience with. Chef's Expressions does weddings ALL the time, and she'd done 300 weddings at my venue, so I trusted her experience! Also, she had a good relationship with all of the other vendors we used, so that made it easy for us to correspond and keep everyone in touch! While they are pricier, I am so thankful we were able to have them cater our wedding and make everything add up to the perfect day!!!

We had such a great experience working with Bonny Opper and the rest of the team at Chef's Expressions. The planning process was fun and the food was wonderful! I really feel like our menu was much more unique than most weddings. Chef's Expressions was also very accommodating for our vegetarian guests. One of the best parts of working with Chef's is that we had someone who made sure that my husband and I always had a drink and food during the cocktail hour and reception. Also, they packaged up some leftovers which was the perfect treat when we got back to our hotel room that evening! Thank you again to Bonny and Chef's Expressions for everything.

Chefs Expression catered our wedding reception at the Peabody Library. I can't say enough great things about them! From the very start, Bonny and Christine worked with us to customize the menu based on what we were looking for, and the tasting allowed us to try out the paired wines for dinner - which were excellent and quite reasonable given their quality. And the food is fantastic - we received so many compliments on the food from our guests! We had our wedding cake made by them and it was also delicious. However, though I would have hired them just for the quality of their food, I was most impressed by how well they planned, organized, and ran the event. The evening was perfectly coordinated and allowed me and my groom to relax and enjoy the evening. Chef's Expressions worked with our band to coordinate the timing for the evening, and we got to have a stress-free wedding reception. Chef's Expressions is one of the more expensive caterers in town, but in my opinion (if you can afford it) they are completely worth it. The food and the service are superb and created a beautiful evening for us and our guests.

I cannot express how pleased we were with everything about chefs expressions!!! From the day we met bonny we knew everything would be perfect. She and Christina were there for us all the way. Their attention to detail was impeccable!! They did not overlook one single thing! The food was amazing. One week later and I am still hearing how delicious everything was. The soup and salad were served at the perfect temperature. The meat was so tender. The rockfish out of this world and jakes presentation was as if he served 4 or 6 guests and not 176!!! U believable. I just don't know how you did it. The service could not of been better. The bride nd groom, my husband and I felt like there was no one else but us being served. The staff was right by our side the entire night. You should be proud of yourselves. We know how hard you worked and we appreciate everything you did for us. You made our daughters dreams all come true. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Joz

Bonnie Opper and Chef's Expressions is an incredible company. I can't tell you how many compliments I received for planning such a "gorgeous wedding"...I have to say that I created a vision and Bonnie 100% put it together and made it a reality. I showed Bonnie inspiration photos and vendor after vendor she made recommendations, contacted them all herself for day of organization and the entire event was a HUGE success. I honestly can't think of anything that went wrong! Other than the fact that I never ate the boxed up meal that I was promised the night of the wedding but that's i'm sure due to the fact that someone in my bridal party got a little hungry late night. So with that being said, take time to enjoy your tasting because it may be the only time you actually eat the food! For my tasting Chef's Expressions went out of their way and added a last minute change (my mother wanted to attend and I let Bonnie know the night before and she had the chef come in early and prepare a whole new set of courses for her so we wouldn't have to share) Just an incredible company overall...you really feel taken care of. I'd recommend this company to anyone who's fearful they may forget a major detail, anyone who works full time and fears "they don't have time to plan a wedding" or anyone who just wants an incredible meal prepared at a very reasonable price. A HUGE thank you to everyone at Chef's Expressions for making our wedding day absolutely perfect. -Chrysanthi & Tim Johnson

Hiring Chef's Expressions was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. When we first met Bonny Opper, we were so impressed with her organizational skills, enthusiasm, and talent. From the beginning she was always available to answer questions, give advice, and even served as a terrific event coordinator on the day of the wedding. In the weeks leading up the wedding, Bonny and Christine Berencz continued to be organized, responsive, and very flexible with all of the inevitable small last-minute changes. Having their support helped make the whole planning experience much more enjoyable. When it came to the wedding itself - Chef's did an outstanding job. The venue looked gorgeous, the staff was exceedingly friendly and well-organized, and the food was fantastic. We can't thank them enough for giving us the perfect wedding!

We had a small wedding reception (50) at a local winery. Paul and his staff were exceptional. They were professional, organized, and well managed. The food was excellent. Guests are still talking about it. The cake they made to our specifications was the best I have ever had. The evening reception was flawless. Their level of experience and professionalism made the event one that all the guest will remember. I and my new wife would use Chef's Expressions again with out giving others a second thought.

I can't say enough good things about Chef's Expressions and Bonny Opper in particular. We were worried about having a choice between only two vendors at our wedding location, but I absolutely think we made the right decision with Chef's.

The food was unique and delicious, the plating was elegant, the service was great, and Bonny even served as kind of an ad-hoc coordinator/planner. She obviously has tons of experience with weddings in the Baltimore area and helped us with everything from picking linens to figuring out to the order of the wedding party to making sure our guests picked up their favors and found their seats.

Highly recommended!!

We worked with Bonny Opper and Christine Berencz at Chef's Expressions for our wedding at the Peabody Library this past weekend, October 6, 2012. From our first meeting when Bonny had a sign in front of the building welcoming us and gifted us with a book of recipes for dinners for two, we knew that CE was going to take care of every detail for our reception.

They truly got our vision for our reception and CE clearly does well working "outside the box" -- we wanted a somewhat non-traditional dinner consisting of upscale comfort food, which they executed perfectly. Our guests were raving non-stop about the food and service. Bonny kept the night on schedule and did an awesome job taking care of everything without ever bothering us. There was one staff member, Brandy, who was assigned to making sure that my husband and I were never without a drink or food if we wanted it.

Bonny and CE are very experienced working weddings at the Peabody and their experience made our wedding run like a well-oiled machine. We can't thank her enough for her hard work and diligent responses to all of our questions, and would highly recommend her to anyone getting married at the Peabody or anywhere else!

I was referred to Chef's Expressions by the venue I selected from my wedding; they were one of the three approved caterers. When I researched them online, I was in love with their presentation but assumed (just from the way the food looked and was presented on their website) that they were outside of my budget. As a result, I opted for one of the other caterers listed because my brother, who had just gotten married the year before, used the other caterer's service. After meeting and receiving the estimate from the other caterer, I was convinced that I needed to do more research; I was not really impressed by their food (or their professionalism, for that matter) and was actually taken aback by the cost!

Suffering from sticker shock, I decided to check out Chef's Expressions to see if there was really a difference. After all, if I was going to pay, I may as well go with what I was most impressed with. I checked out the reviews for Chef's Expressions and was impressed with the reviews the company had already received and was particularly struck by a comment one reviewer made regarding the company's willingness to work with her/him on developing a menu that worked within their budget. Bingo!

I contacted the company and connected with Paul Kountz. The rest is history! I am so happy with the decision we made. All the positive reviews that I read were true: the quality of service, responsiveness, professionalism, and flexibility were all 5-star quality! And for value, there should be a rating of 6. Paul was amazing! He was fantastic to work with and he really helped make my event memorable! I worked to create a menu that worked within my budget and he (and Chef) offered some options that I would not have thought possible! My family and friends loved the food and the service was top-notch. I would recommend them for any event!

The CE team was the perfect caterer to help bring our vision to life. During that initial meeting, when I requested that we incorporate beets and compound butter (the latter request the chef declared a first from a Bride!) I think they knew what foodies they were working with!! We not only wanted an innovative menu that reflected our tastes, but that was going to be delicious for our 200 guests, not solely at the tasting. They delivered on this and more!!! I salivated over our wedding menu for months leading up to the BIG DAY and would happily devour those three courses again right now! Guests went gaga as well and were wishing they had leftovers the following day! Lucky for us, hubby and I did!

Bonny and Christine were always available to answer questions (so much so I even included a disclaimer not to respond if they were reading email over the weekend or a holiday!) Their personal attention throughout the entire process was exemplary and they always had the best attitudes even when last minute changes arose.

My husband and I had a dedicated staff member, Brandy, during the evening who treated us like royalty and we wanted for nothing. We were able to enjoy our favorite appetizers in our own private service and the drinks flowed freely all night.

Everything went off without a hitch as a result of the CE team's work ethic and expertise; I just kicked my heals up, ate, drank and danced the night away!!!

Chef's Expressions is the caterer to go to. Their food was superb! I still have guests commenting about how wonderful the food was and if I can find out their recipes. My favorite was an appetizer which was in a martini like glass with a small bowl attached to the bottom with real LIVE GOLDFISH swimming around! It was the coolest thing I have ever seen! Bonnie and Christine are very attentive and made the wedding planning process super easy! Their pastry chef by the by is for sure the best around! Best cake I have ever had :) Highly recommend this company

Overall, the whole company and night was way beyond my expectations! Thanks again!

My husband and i worked with Bonnie and her crew for our wedding this past June. She was great and the food was excellent. Bonnie was very helpful as we worked to plan a cocktail hour and dinner reception in our budget and Chef's also provided a beautiful wedding cake.

Our wedding occurred the day after a huge storm knocked out all of the power to our venue, but the catering went off without a snag. I would definitely recommend Chef's Expressions!

Chef's Expressions catered my wedding and they were great. When searching for and meeting with caterers, Chef's Expressions definitely stood out above the rest. My husband, mom, and I worked with Melanie throughout the planning process and she was super helpful and great to work with. Chef's Expressions was different from the other caterers in that before our tasting, we met with Melanie and the chef to talk about what were looking for and plan out a personalized menu. When we went back for the tasting, we were really impressed with the taste and presentation of the food. On the day of the wedding, the food was just as great as we remembered, and the presentation was beautiful and unique. All of the staff who were on site the day of the wedding were excellent. Melanie was also great in helping with all the little details, changes, etc. All of our guests commented on how good the food (and the cake) were at the wedding. I highly recommend Chef's Expressions!

My experience with Chef's Expression was outstanding in all regards! Paul Kountz was a joy to work with from the day we first met to the end of the actual reception. His staff were all friendly, very attentive and extremely professional.

Our day was very difficult because power was out all over the area including the church where the wedding took place. We arrived at the George Peabody Library wilted from the heat and pressure of a "unique" wedding and were amazed at the venue which was 100% organized and prepared by Paul, his staff and the wonderful staff at the Peabody.

The food was delicious and presented in the most special manner. His bar staff was excellent and he just made my daughters wedding a dream come true.

There is no higher recommendation that I can or could ever give Chef's Expression. They are simply the best company I have ever had the god fortune to deal with and that includes over 40 years of putting on 100's of events during my professional life.

Thank you Paul and thank you Chef's Expression.

To my parents, the quality of food at our wedding was definitely the most important aspect. Our wedding planner referred us to Chef's Expressions, since they are known for their delicious food and quality service! From the initial tasting to the dinner at our wedding, we loved to food and service we received. It was clear that Chef's Expressions was very experienced with our venue, and the whole meal and service was flawless.

I worked with Bonny and Jennifer. The entire catering experience from start to finish was exceptional. I loved that my fiance and I were able to design our entire menu based on our likes and dislikes rather than picking from a pre-set list of options. We are foodies and really wanted our guests to experience the flavors and presentation we would expect. We could not have been happier with the professional, experience, quality, and service from their staff. Chef's also supplied our cake which was absolutely delicious. We received so many compliments from our guests about how exceptional the food and cake were and how they couldn't believe that with the size of the wedding (170 guests) the food would be so consistent, thoughtful, and detailed. Chef's really is in a class of their own and sets the bar high. If you are looking for an experience that goes beyond the ordinary expected wedding food, then I would consider Chef's Expressions.

Our experience from the first meeting with Bonny Opper to the farewells at the end of the wedding gets an A+ rating.

I worked primarily with Paul Kountz at Chef's Expressions for my wedding. He was extremely courteous and professional throughout the planning. Chef's Expressions was the ONLY vendor who listened to what I wanted from the get go, and sent me a proposal that accurately portrayed what I was interested in. I gave five different vendors the same requests/budget/food restrictions, and the other four sent me what was clearly a careless generic menu riddled with things I had said I did not want. Paul's menu was beautifully written, very descriptive, and PROMPT. I knew we were going to work with him right away. My wedding planner, Leslie Weekes of Leslie-Manning Events, also highly recommended CE, so we knew our guests were in for a treat. CE really worked within our budget and provided us exquisite food on the wedding day. Our guests are still emailing me for a recipe for the asparagus and leek soup the chef prepared to honour my French side of the family (Paul, if you're reading this, hook me up!) We could not have asked for better food, but the icing on the proverbial cake was how fantastic the CE staff was. The servers were quick, darting in and out almost unseen. I say almost because so many guests noted how friendly and happy they looked while they were working. It really sets the mood when the waitstaff is also having a good time at the wedding. The bartenders were full of jokes and quick comebacks and remembered people's preferences throughout the evening. My wedding was a bit complicated in that my parents live overseas, so they were only here in the two weeks leading up to the ceremony. During the final walk through with the caterer, Paul really took his time to repeat things directly to them that I'm sure he would have rather skimmed over since the wedding planner and myself already knew everything. I cannot tell you how much I appreciated the way he made my parents feel like they were valued and integral members of the planning experience. He asked them questions and made sure to alter some plans to accommodate my mother's last minute wishes (Pssst, Paul, bet you've never had a 20 minute convo on how to fold napkins before, eh?). He was fantastic and always dressed to the nines when we met with him. I will always be grateful for how well that walk through went and how happy my parents were afterwards. Chef's Expressions is a vendor I will recommend to EVERYONE planning a wedding in DC. EVERYONE.

We loved working with Chef's Expressions. Bonny, Christine and Jennifer and everyone else we met on staff were wonderful. My husband and I love to eat and cook and we wanted the best caterer available at the 1840s Ballroom for our wedding. The food was one of the most important parts of the evening to us!

Our first visit to Chef's Expressions included a sit down with the Chef and he got us so excited as he made suggestions about our food for the evening. We worked with Bonny and Christine to fine-tune the menu for the cocktail hour and the dinner and then had our tasting. It was amazing! It confirmed we had made the right choice for our wedding. We had a private tasting, including my parents.

The day of the wedding went so smoothly. We started with the cocktail hour, which I didn't go to. Bonny and Jennifer were great about making sure I had some of the h'orderves while I waited. Once the ceremony was over we had a sit down dinner. There was a duo starter, a fish course, followed by a meat entree. It sounds like a lot of food, but Chef's Expressions perfectly sized each course so you can still get out on the dance floor after eating three courses!

The wait staff and bartenders were also great and very friendly. They did a beautiful job setting up the tables and spacing them so no one felt crowded and there was still enough room for people to mingle throughout the night.

My husband and I had our reception at the George Peabody Library. The first time we saw the Library, Chef's Expressions was setting up for a wedding, and we met Paul Kountz for the first time. After seeing Paul and his staff in action, there was no question that he was the caterer for us. His efficiency and professionalism was apparent to us right away. After booking the Library and Chef's Expressions, Paul could not have been more accomodating to my indecisiveness, and our two sets of out of state parents. It didn't matter what question I had, what time I emailed him, or even what time I called him. He was always there to answer my questions and reassure me that all would be fine. He was definitely our sanity throughout the planning process.

Despite the fact that we were always in contact, Paul and Chef's Expressions needed very little direction. Their expertise in every aspect of our reception was comforting and astounding. When I walked into the reception, it took my breath away. I consider myself a perfectionist and a control freak, and Paul and his team put me to shame. It was perfect in every way.

In terms of food and drink, I could not say enough good things. My guests arrived much earlier than planned and Paul and his team had the bars set up in record time, and began serving drinks 30 minutes earlier than the start of the cocktail hour. This is just one example of how they went above and beyond. The food was beautiful and delicious, and we received so many compliments from our guests. The cake, done by Chef's Expressions, was exactly like the photo I chose, and could not have been more tasty! Paul assigned Stacey as our personal attendant for the evening, and she was a life saver. Drinks and appetizers appeared out of nowhere, and any time I needed someone or something, she was right there. It was almost as if she was reading my mind!

As you can see, Chef's Expressions, Paul, Stacey, and the rest of his team made our wedding the most memorable night of our lives. So many of our guests claim that it was the most beautiful, most fun wedding they have ever attended and we owe it all to Chef's Expressions! I will use Chef's for all of my events.

My husband and I had our reception at the George Peabody Library. The first time we saw the Library, Chef's Expressions was setting up for a wedding, and we met Paul Kountz for the first time. After seeing Paul and his staff in action, there was no question that he was the caterer for us. His efficiency and professionalism was apparent to us right away. After booking the Library and Chef's Expressions, Paul could not have been more accomodating to my indecisiveness, and our two sets of out of state parents. It didn't matter what question I had, what time I emailed him, or even what time I called him. He was always there to answer my questions and reassure me that all would be fine. He was definitely our sanity throughout the planning process.

Bonny, Christine, Paul and the entire Chef's team were fabulous to work with. Chef's put 110 ten percent into making sure our wedding was perfect. They were flexible with last minute tweaks to food/drink/dessert/timeline plans. They are willing to work with you whether its on menu, timing, place settings. They worked closely and effectively with the other vendors to make the cocktail hour and reception ran smoothly. They were exceptionally responsive in communicating with us throughout the process. Thank you Chefs!

We would highly recommend you use chef's for your next party or special event.

Chef's Expressions provided excellent service and food for our daughter's wedding at the George Peabody Library on 03/03/12. It was a pleasure to work with Bonny throughout the process---she was patient, understanding, and extremely responsive to our many emails and phone calls. She and her assistant, Christine, were very detailed and organized. The company responded very professionally to each of our concerns, and we had also a chance to work with Paul. He, too, was very helpful, experienced, and professional. Chef John was delightful, and the food was wonderful! We worked closely with Bonny and John to design a menu with which our daughter and son-in-law were very pleased. Bonny also had excellent suggestions for our linens, timeline and organization of the whole evening! The wait staff and bartenders provided great service. We consider Chef's to be a wonderful vendor.

Hands down the BEST caterer in Baltimore! We could not have been more pleased with our experience. We worked with Bonny who was amazing. She is very organized, friendly and a huge help the day of the wedding. From the minute we booked them, we knew we were in good hands with Bonny and the whole team at Chef's Expression. The food is so delicious. I've found at other weddings that the food sometimes is an afterthought, but not with Chef's. The food is fresh, innovative and beautifully served. The cake is not only the best priced cake in town, but quite honestly the best cake I have ever had! The Carrot Cake is to die for! We had so many of our friends and family tell us how much they loved the food. It's certainly not the cheapest caterer in town but it is completely worth it!

There are not enough words to express how INCREDIBLE Chef's Expressions is as a catering vendor and partner.

Their service is truly top-notch. Not one mistake was made during the planning process or the day/night of the wedding; everything was impeccable. My sister and I both welled up with tears when first entering the reception - thanks to Chef's Expressions the setting was flawless.

It is important to note that, not only do they serve delicious, perfectly displayed food but they also serve as a partner and play a coordinator role throughout the planning process. They, specifically Paul Kountz in our case, help the bride and groom ensure that everything will flow correctly and go smoothly. They have several years of experience and are certainly the experts so their guidance is very valuable.

Not only did they make the event EASY and pleasurable for the bride and groom, they also make it a dream-like experience for the guests. The service could not be better, the food could not be better, and many compliments were given to us about such things on our wedding night and after.


If you're evaluating vendors, keep these key things in mind:
- Advice and guidance regarding flow of event and decor
- Great attention to detail and very responsive throughout entire process
- Decades of experience in industry to help plan the night and execute properly
- Exemplary service
- Delicious food and unique presentation

Huge THANK YOU to Paul, his staff and the Chef at Chef's Expressions!

Bonny, Christine and the whole team at Chef's Expressions were AMAZING! They were flexible and patient with us every step of the way - from figuring out our menu to putting up all our other decorations (table numbers, place cards, bar signs, etc.). John, their chef, is passionate about his food and it showed. We received rave reviews from our guests who we consider true foodies. The whole team of servers/bartenders were professional, quick and very personable. Bonny and Christine were responsive and patient - they thought of everything and served as day of coordinators for us - they coordinated with our other vendors to ensure smooth setup and takedown (flowers, dj's, venue, photographer). Chef's Expressions paid amazing attention to the details and the quality of food and service were phenomenal!

I am 62, and have been to quite a few weddings, including over-the-top affairs in NYC. Chef's Expressions catered our wedding in Baltimore, and it was the most fabulous job I have ever seen. Our friends are still commenting on what an incredible job Chef John Walsh did with the food, from planning to execution to presentation. Bonny Opper took care of everything else and the event was seamless, without a single hitch, and we are still getting calls from our friends telling us what an amazing time they had.

While Chef's is not the least expensive caterer available, they are in my opinion by far the best value given the fantastic quality, great staff, and perfect execution. Very sincerely, the event could not have been managed better - it was perfect.

We can't stop complimenting Melanie & the Chef's Expressions team...and neither can our guests. If you want excellent food brought to you by a staff of friendly professionals, look no further. We chose "plated stations" so that our guests wouldn't have to serve themselves but would have the choice of several different dishes at our reception. We worked with Chef John to create these stations and his suggestions blew away anything proposed by the competition. His ideas seemed endless and delicious with every description. Melanie handled every detail with ease and care--a rare combo. She always made us feel like what we wanted was not only possible but important to her. Our reception at the American Visionary Art Museum was perfect in every way thanks to Chef's Expressions.

Our experience with Chef's Expressions was amazing. They took care of every aspect of the setup and catering of the entire day and I did not have to worry about a thing. Most of all, many MANY of our guests commented that this was the best and most creative wedding food they have ever tasted. I completely agree. Jerry and his team came up with an innovative and delicious three course menu that really reflected my husband and my taste, as well as appealed to a wide variety of palates. The wine choices were also excellent. Chef's Expressions was a pleasure to work with and had an answer to every question (even the annoying ones!) along the way. They were accessible, responsive, and their attention to detail was fantastic. I would also like to comment that Laurel, who coordinated much of the day for us was absolutely amazing to work with. We could not have asked for a better experience. You may find in your research that Chef's Expressions is more expensive than other vendors, but what you get for your dollar is worth EVERY penny. They were more than just caterers, they were basically wedding coordinators for us. I would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone looking for an innovative, classy, and fun event. Two enthusiastic thumbs up.

It was such a pleasure to work with Bonny and Christine of Chef's Expressions. They were very friendly, helpful, professional, and always willing to give their opinions. They helped me realize everything I dreamed of for my reception and cocktail hour, decor-wise. And then they helped create the meal of my dreams! All of the food at my wedding was delicious. Every hors d'oeuvres was amazing, and they were nothing compared to the meal! All of the staff were great as well. They were very friendly towards all of the guests and always asking the Groom and I if we needed anything.

Also, we had our ceremony and reception in the same room, so it needed to be turned over during the cocktail hour. Chef's blew me away on how fast they were able to turn the room over and how amazing everything looked. Everything was exactly where they needed to be and it was beautiful! They even took the Groom and I into the space before everyone else and made sure we ate some of the hors d'oeuvres.

Chef’s Expressions catered my wedding in November, and I highly recommend them. When we began planning the wedding, we met with several caterers and after tastings with three, we were torn between two. However, in the end, Chef’s Expressions made the decision an easy one. Not only was the food delicious, but the presentation and attention to detail was phenomenal. We worked closely with Event Design Consultant Bonny Opper and Executive Chef John Walsh to design our menu and unlike other caterers, they listened to what we wanted and what we liked and then made suggestions of how to enhance our menu. My husband and I, as well as most of my family, tend to like more familiar foods - a good steak, potato and vegetable. While other caterers took this very literally and created a very simple menu, John took note of flavors we liked and asked tons of questions about what in particular we liked about certain foods and from there built a menu that was completely reflective of whom we are and what we like and it was anything but simple and boring! He created an amazing several course menu starting with a delicious shrimp and corn bisque as well as a fantastic salad. The rock fish with lemon grass beurre blanc that followed was cooked perfectly and was so tasty. Finally the beef tenderloin with the morello cherry demi glaze was scrumptious. In addition, Chef’s Expressions provided our wedding cake which was so amazingly beautiful as well as so delicious. Our guests still continue to talk about the food.
The presentation of the food was above and beyond what we could have imagined. The way the crudités were served in individual shot glasses was elegant and the shiitake mushroom stick appetizer, which was served from a bowl with fish swimming in the bottom, was a complete hit!
Bonny was there every step of the way to help make all the necessary decisions. Since our wedding was at a venue where everything, including linens and chairs, needed to be brought in, there were plenty of decisions to be made! Bonny was so helpful and never made us feel as though we were taking too much time, even when it took us 2 hours to finalize linens and napkins! Bonny always made us feel as though we were her only clients and always had time to answer our questions or give us her opinion. In addition, Bonny and her Event Specialist Christine took such great care of us the day of the wedding. They not only made sure that we had everything we needed, but they made sure our guests were well taken care of. They made sure the evening flowed perfectly and gently guided us through the night to keep us on track which was so helpful considering at that point I had no concept of time! We can’t thank them enough.
We continue to hear from our guests about how wonderful our wedding was, from the food to the décor to the drinks. We simply cannot thank Bonny and everyone at Chef’s Expressions enough for helping to make our wedding a truly wonderful and memorable event. Thank you so much!

I cannot say enough about Chef's Expressions and how highly I would recommend them for your wedding. Bonnie was the main coordinator and Christine was her assistant and they were both extremely responsive and flexible throughout the entire process.

When doing research for caterers, I immediately saw Chef's Expressions as the cream of the crop. I however ruled them out because I assumed they would be out of our price range. When we weren't completely happy with the other caterers we spoke to, I contacted Bonnie and was ecstatic to find out that they were very flexible and willing to work within our price range.

Not only is the food legitimately amazing (I am a foodie and would classify this food as "great." Not "great for a wedding", but just plain "great!"), and not only does the food LOOK amazing (their plating is phenomenal and they can do special things with each hors d'oeuvres tray and served plate), but the main reason I truly love Chef's Expressions is the day of wedding coordination. Bonnie was very familiar with our venue and very familiar with our DJ, and made us 100% comfortable that everything would go smoothly. They provided us with a suggested timeline and once we tweaked it in the days leading up to the wedding, had full confidence that we didn't need to worry about things running smoothly. If there is one thing I can complain about (and I am really nitpicking here), it's that we were supposed to have one of our hors d'oeuvres served on top of a mini bowl containing a live goldfish, and they forgot that detail, but that is honestly the only thing negative I can say about them. In the weeks since the wedding, I have had multiple guests mention to me that our food was the best food they have ever had at any wedding. I would agree!

Bonnie and her staff consistently made sure that not only were we (the bride & groom) fed well when we had time to eat, but regularly refilled our drinks and personally waited on the entire head table to make sure everyone had what they needed. She even packaged up 2 of every course for us to take home, assuming that we probably didnt get a chance to enjoy our meals with all the ongoing time demands of talking to the guests.

OH! And the cake! So good! I wasn't expecting much since they aren't a specialty cake boutique but the cake was AMAZING, and beautiful and they can work with you on appearance to cater to what you want it to look like.

Wedding planning and the day of can be stressful, but I can't stress enough how highly I recommend choosing Chef's Expressions as your caterer. Guaranteed amazing food with amazing presentation, but also guaranteed flawless execution of the day of, going beyond what most catering companies would do. With Bonnie and Chef's Expressions, you pretty much get food AND a day-of wedding planner for the price of one. That's many less things that you have to worry about when you should be enjoying your night.

Not "great for a wedding", but just plain "great!"), and not only does the food LOOK amazing (their plating is phenomenal and they can do special things with each hors d'oeuvres tray and served plate), but the main reason I truly love Chef's Expressions is the day of wedding coordination. Bonnie was very familiar with our venue and very familiar with our DJ, and made us 100% comfortable that everything would go smoothly. They provided us with a suggested timeline and once we tweaked it in the days leading up to the wedding, had full confidence that we didn't need to worry about things running smoothly. If there is one thing I can complain about (and I am really nitpicking here), it's that we were supposed to have one of our hors d'oeuvres served on top of a mini bowl containing a live goldfish, and they forgot that detail, but that is honestly the only thing negative I can say about them. In the weeks since the wedding, I have had multiple guests mention to me that our food was the best food they have ever had at any wedding. I would agree!

Bonnie and her staff consistently made sure that not only were we (the bride & groom) fed well when we had time to eat, but regularly refilled our drinks and personally waited on the entire head table to make sure everyone had what they needed. She even packaged up 2 of every course for us to take home, assuming that we probably didnt get a chance to enjoy our meals with all the ongoing time demands of talking to the guests.

OH! And the cake! So good! I wasn't expecting much since they aren't a specialty cake boutique but the cake was AMAZING, and beautiful and they can work with you on appearance to cater to what you want it to look like.

Wedding planning and the day of can be stressful, but I can't stress enough how highly I recommend choosing Chef's Expressions as your caterer. Guaranteed amazing food with amazing presentation, but also guaranteed flawless execution of the day of, going beyond what most catering companies would do. With Bonnie and Chef's Expressions, you pretty much get food AND a day-of wedding planner for the price of one. That's many less things that you have to worry about when you should be enjoying your night. Read less

Chef's Expressions was the caterer that my husband and I selected for our wedding at Gramercy Mansion and we could not have been happier with them. Throughout the entire process, Bonny and Christine were friendly, easy to work with, very responsive, and extremely knowledgeable (of both the food/wine and the space at Gramercy Mansion). We fully trusted them in helping us to create a spectacular menu that suited our tastes, and they did not disappoint. So many of our guests raved about how wonderful the food and service were at the reception.

More than anything, as the bride, I was so grateful for the impeccable service that was provided that evening. Bonny and Christine handled the flow and timeline of the night- I never once had to worry about when the next "step" was supposed to occur. Everyone on their staff seemed organized and knew their roles. Bonny, Christine, the waitstaff, and the chefs really are there to provide the best meal and overall experience for everyone. They receive very high recommendations from us!!!

From the moment that we first met with Bonny at Chef's Expression, there was no doubt in our mind that we would use them as our caterer. We were very unsure of what we wanted for out catering, but Bonny and the rest of her team were able to assist us to make our day perfect. The food that was served at our wedding was the best food I have ever eaten at a wedding, and we have had numerous guests tell us that. The food was creative and different, but also comforting and appealling to all of our guests. Bonny and Christine were there to help us with every stage of the planning and helped make keep us calm. We have talked about our wedding and have said over and over again that we would not change a thing! Bonny and her staff were always able to answer ever question that we could come up with and provide us with amazing recommendations for all of our wedding needs! They even made a special fruit tart for the bride! Thanks for making our dreams come true!

If you want a stress-free wedding, then look no further than Chef's Expressions!! From our initial interaction with Paul, Chef John, and the wonderful staff, my husband and I were instantly impressed by their enthusiasm and professionalism. I truly cannot say enough good things about Chef's Expressions. They were hands-down the best wedding vendor that we hired! Paul and the amazing team at Chef's didn't miss a beat from planning our menu to overseeing the smallest of details. We hired them to cater our wedding but Paul and team provided so much more. Not only was the food AMAZING but we felt that the team went above and beyond expectations to deliver what was the most amazing day of our lives!

I'll be the first to admit that I have a Type A personality and sometimes have trouble giving up control. But when Paul says it's gonna be okay - TRUST HIM!Paul was always quick to respond to my incessant emails and phone calls and remained the consummate professional through it all.

Our guests were truly blown away by everything and are still raving about the excellent four-course meal that Chef's provided that evening. Planning a wedding can definitely be stressful, and hiring trustworthy vendors is of the utmost importance to ensure your day is unforgettable. Therefore, I can say with absolute confidence that you will not be disappointed in your decision to hire Chef's Expressions.

We used Chef's Expressions as our wedding caterer and could not have been happier! Bonnie and her team were extremely professional, always prompt to respond to me, and the food was the best wedding food I have ever eaten. Bonnie basically doubled as my wedding day coordinator making sure the timeline ran smoothly and that I was always happy. They even boxed up two extra dinners and sent them to our hotel since we didn't have a chance to eat very much. Bonnie and her team made the entire wedding planning experience as easy for me as possible and I would strongly recommend Chef's Expressions for a wedding caterer.

I am so grateful that he waited to decide, as the weather cleared and our cocktail hour was held outside as the bride and groom had wished. It was absolutely beautiful. The food was fantastic. The servers were professional and efficient. The evening was absolutely perfect. I would highly recommend Chef's Expression's.

We were overwhelmingly impressed by Bonny Opper's team at Chef's Expressions. From Day 1 of our wedding planning with them, they offered warm, personalized, and highly professional services. On the evening of our wedding, everything flowed perfectly. Staff were friendly and dependable, service was impeccable, and the food was delicious...many of our guests have since commented that the food (including the carrot cake!) was the best they've experienced at a wedding reception. In addition to coordinating the catering, Bonny was kind enough to help us coordinate the ceremony processional and the timing of things like toasts and first dance. Her energy and enthusiasm (and that of her team) are amazing.

We could go on and on with praise for Chef's Expressions, and would highly recommend them to anyone planning an event.

Chef's Expressions really made our wedding spectacular. From the start and throughout the year leading up to our wedding, Bonny Opper and Christine Berencz made us feel like our wedding was the only one they were catering (even though they were always busy planning and attending many events). They acted not only as caterers but also as event coordinators, working with all of our other vendors to make sure everything was running smoothly. Bonny and Christine were quick to respond to any questions we had and were always pleasant and helpful. Chef's Expressions worked with our budget to create an innovative, gourmet menu that was artfully presented—and all of it was made from scratch! The food was prepared fresh and was truly delicious. Many guests said it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding and I agree, adding that it was some of the best food I've ever tasted. And our wedding cake was to die for - I am counting the days until I can dig into the rest of it. I highly recommend Chef's Expressions and can't thank them enough.

Paul and his team at Chef's Expressions were a pivotal part of making our wedding reception a success. Paul helped with everything from setting the timeline, to selecting a mouth-watering menu. We got nothing but rave reviews from our guests about the food!

We felt totally spoiled by Chef's at the reception. They paid attention to every detail, and addressed any minor issues that came up without bothering us with them. They made sure that our drinks were never more than half full, and at the end of the night they packed us up some extra entrees and desserts in case we hadn't had a chance to eat. That's just one example of how they were incredibly attentive to us. I would highly recommend Chef's for your next event.

What can I say...these guys are a bride's dream. They think about and take care of all the little details for you (and every little detail is important to a bride, right?).

Paul is a friendly guy to work with, very prompt with responses to our millions of questions. His assistants and catering staff are great too. On the day of our wedding, one of his assistants basically took care of just the two of us, making sure we actually got a chance to eat during cocktail hour, got us drinks, basically did whatever we asked them to do. THANK YOU! Saved me from going nuts.

These guys cut us a great deal because we got married in late February, so definitely ask what sort of specials they've got going on. Our reception venue (Peabody Library) only allowed us the option of working with one of two caterers -- Chef's Expressions or Classic Catering People. They were both great but the difference was on price. Paul made it work for us.

These guys also work with other third party vendors to make the planning a little easier. Chef's Expressions handled our linen rental and cake as well. Linens cost a lot less than what I was quoted from other vendors, again because of the season. And Chef's Expressions has an in-house baker who makes wedding cakes. We didn't know what we wanted so we told Paul to just "make it pretty" and it turned out very nice.

And the food...oh man, the food! We had braised short ribs, grilled asparagus, and potato timbale and it was fantastic! One of my friends who goes to 10 weddings per year told us that this was one of the best wedding meals he's ever had. And guests only ever remember the dress and the food, right? :)

We could not have been happier with Chef's Expressions! Melanie Brzozowski is wonderful! She was so accommodating, responsive and remained highly interested and involved throughout the planning process. With Melanie, we knew that our entire wedding was in good hands.
The food was amazingly delicious and was displayed beautifully in fun, unique ways. We received so many compliments (even from picky eaters)! It was great working directly with Chef to create our own wedding menu. There are not many catering companies that allow the clients to meet the head chef, share ideas with him and plan each item. Even the tasting was a great experience!!
We loved every aspect of our wedding and owe so much to Chef's Expressions for a most memorable event. The food, servers, decorations, flowers and overall set-up were perfect! We would not hesitate to recommend Chefs Expressions to our friends and family.

Chef's Expressions catered our wedding reception at the George Peabody Library. The food was delicious, everyone has been raving about it! Bonny Opper and Christine Berencz are the best at what they do. They helped us create a unique menu that was seasonal. Each course was presented beautifully, and more tasty than the last. The chefs created some interesting, original Indian hors d'oeuvres which added some traditional flavors to the meal for my husband's family from India. I can't say enough about the service of the entire staff on the evening of our wedding. They were flexible when unexpected guests arrived and found room for them at the tables. They handled the challenge of 27 children's meals smoothly and gracefully! Bonny and Christine managed every detail and made the night relaxing and enjoyable for everyone. They really took the place of wedding planners and treated us at all times like family. Many guests commented that the staff went out of their way to make our wedding an extraordinarily warm and special event. We couldn't be more pleased with Chef's Expressions...they are an absolute must have for any wedding!!

Chef’s Expressions was everything we could have wanted from a caterer and more, and there was never any question after we contacted them that they would be our caterer. My now-husband and I knew that we wanted to do fall-themed food stations at our wedding, ideally with a wine pairing for each. From the very first time that we spoke to Bonny at Chef’s Expressions, she immediately “got it” and knew exactly what we were looking for. Chef John similarly had great ideas for dishes and wines that would pair well with them.

Everyone at Chef’s Expressions was incredibly responsive from the first time that we called right up through the reception. (When planning a wedding, responsiveness is SO important and not to be underestimated.) In the weeks prior to the wedding, we worked primarily with Christine, and she answered each one of my ridiculous, stressed-out questions with patience and knowledge. She had good intuition for how to set up our tables and seat our guests, so that everything worked out perfectly.

On the day of the wedding, the staff from Chef’s Expressions was incredibly efficient in setting up our centerpieces, place cards, and favors. We didn’t have to do a thing. At the cocktail hour and reception the service was attentive and professional, and of course the food was wonderful. So many of our guests complimented the food profusely – my father said that the short ribs were one of the best dishes he’s ever had. Everything went so smoothly, and the event was even better than my fiancé and I had envisioned it in no small part due to the expertise of Chef’s Expressions. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

Wow! That's all I can say about this bunch. I have never been so impressed with a group of people before. They are fantastic caterers and so professional. People are still talking about our food weeks later. Bonny and her assistant Christine were amazing. They not only handled everything related to the food, they coordinated all our vendors for us and were always there with every stupid question I had. They could not have been more pleasant to work with and they really made all the planning so easy and so much fun. Our photographer (who has done over 400 weddings) said that it was hands down the prettiest presentation she's ever seen for wedding food. You all are great and we appreciate everything you did for us!

Wow! That's all I can say about this bunch. I have never been so impressed with a group of people before. They are fantastic caterers and so professional. People are still talking about our food weeks later. Bonny and her assistant Christine were amazing.

I can't say enough. First of all, the food was outstanding. I sat down with the chef and manager to design a menu and they were extremely creative and put together an amazing reception. Guests were raving about it. And the chef, John Walsh, is a master of his craft, no doubt about it. Throughout all of the planning my event manager Bonny and Christine were always reachable by phone, and responded promptly to emails. During the ceremony and reception Bonny was on top of everything, and also personally making sure me and my husband and parents had everything we needed, food, drinks etc. Bonny went above and beyond the call of the duty. I am so grateful to her. And the cake was also one of the tastiest wedding cakes I've had! Highly, highly recommended.

I worked with Paul and him and his team were AMAZING! We told him what type of cuisine we wanted and the Chef completely customized a menu for us. (e.g. shrimp tempura, thai chicken lettuce wraps, jerk chicken, southern collard greens etc.)
They also baked our delicious wedding cake and 6 types of desserts. All of our guests raved about the food and said it was the best food and cake they ever had. We also a private tasting where we were able to update the menu and provide feedback.

More than the food, what was most impressive is that Paul acted as my event manager - handling every detail of the evening. Chef's set up everything beforehand, including photo frames we displayed during the cocktail hour and a special rum cake we brought in. We had an adult reception and the only child at the reception was the flower girl. One of the staff members (on their own) told her that they would be her personal server for the night and brought her juice and dessert all evening. This was a highlight of the night for her and made her feel so special. Throughout the night Paul checked on the mother of the bride and even brought her cocktails! That was truly above and beyond.

There's a reason why everyone says that Chef's Expressions is the best. It gave me peace of mind knowing that my wedding was in their hands. Food and service are two of the most important elements of a wedding and Chef's is a bargain for 5 star service.

My suggestion for brides would be to make sure that you get some cake and dessert wrapped up for the next day. Everyone raved about how delicious they were and unfortunately we didn't get to taste everything because we were so busy mingling.

We could not have been more impressed or happier with the service that Chef Expressions provided. The entire team was so professional and really made us feel so special on our wedding day. Bonny from Chef Expression was better than any wedding coordinator that we could have hired. She did an excellent job coordinating set-up times with our other vendors and helped keep everything running so smoothly the day of the wedding. On top of it all the food was absolutely phenomenal. We were told repeatedly by our guests that it was the best food that they have ever had at a wedding. The presentation, quality, and the flavors were all world-class. Chef Expression's attention to detail, service, and professionalism cannot be rivaled by any other caterer in the Baltimore area.

Chef's Expressions did an AMAZING job catering my recent wedding of 167. I would definitely recommend them to anyone hosting a catered event. Not only was the food incredible, but all of the employees were very pleasant and accommodating. Pricing was also reasonable given the quality of the food they serve and their attention to detail when it comes to presentation. I can't say enough good things about my experience with them!
When planning such an important (and stressful) event it was nice to know that I could count on the food and service being outstanding.
It was really a pleasure to deal with such a first class vendor.

The menu was catered to meet our tastes and budget, and we have been flooded with compliments from friends and family about the high quality of the food and excellent service. The one "complaint" was that the bartenders were "too good" at making their drinks and they kept on going back for just one more!

I can’t thank Chef’s Expression enough for making my wedding day a wonderful evening! Bonny is my main contact since beginning. I just love Bonny. She is so responsive, makes you feel at ease and you know you are in good hands. The food on the day of the wedding was even better than the tasting we had. I had so many friends telling me that this was one of the best wedding meals they’ve ever had. I didn’t get to sit down and enjoy the dinner until I went back to work the next week and I had the leftovers that Bonny and the staff packed for me. OMG, the food was really great! On top of that, the staffs that worked at my wedding were all super friendly and professional. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate everything Bonny and the team have done for me. They really did a great job and made the night memorable. Thank you so much!

Incredible! Easiest decision of the entire wedding planning process! The other vendor for the Peabody did little but complain about how difficult the venue is while offering the same old tired parade of cliche wedding food. Chef's Expressions blew them out of the water. Every aspect from planning to execution was amazing. They did a personal tasting for us and were enthusiastically open to our suggestions. I'm a chef and I wanted the food to pair well with the wines that we selected. They nailed it. The food was beautiful and it tasted even better than it looked.

Chef's Expressions was FABULOUS! From start to finish, Bonny Opper (my contact) was on top of it. She responded to all my inquiries right away and did a great job of meeting our hopes and dreams, while also providing valuable insights. The menu, cuisine, and presentation were all stunning (of course!), but Bonny also acted as an event planner of sorts and worked with all my vendors, executed on-site at the wedding, and took so much responsibility off my shoulders as the bride. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Chef's Expressions and Bonny: they are both truly the best!

Chef's Expressions was excellent in all respects--from the creative process to the finished product. I was able to rely on them for ALL of my catering needs. While the cost was higher than the other vendors I interviewed, it was well worth it! I did not have to worry about anything as far as they were concerned. At the wedding, I received numerous compliments on the food and how outstanding it was...and I had a tough crowd to please. Some people commented it was the best wedding food they had ever had. Also, working in the hospitality industry for a 5-star establishment, I can assure anyone that the service was outstanding as well. I felt pampered the entire evening.

Paul was excellent from the first meeting, to congratulating me on my wedding day! I made some picky requests, like having beet soup, and Paul made the simplest wish into a formal dinner party. Every guest appreciated the personal attention at their sit-down service. Paul was also ready for anything, even my last minute request to change the number of tables (which I was so grateful for!). More than that, when you hire Chef's Expressions for your wedding, you are not just getting a caterer, but a wedding coordinator and friend who is genuinely interested in the quality of your event as if it was his own family affair. I would also recommend Chef's Expressions for your cake, my 4 tier raspberry and white chocolate dessert was delicious. I hope it is obvious from these comments why Paul and those at Chef's Expressions are a notch above the rest and completely deserving of all 5 stars.

Although they are more costly than other companies, you get more than you pay for. The entire process was fun to work with them. I could not have gotten throught the day without Bonny. She told me where I was supposed to be and kept everything running smoothly. It was perfect!

The food was excellent. I had many guests compliment the food- prime angus loin with blueberry merlot sauce and potato pave! We wanted to do a beer and wine pairing with dinner, and they had no problems working with us on the menu. The cake was beautiful and also tasted wonderful. My aunts kept saying this was the best cake they ever had at a wedding. Beyond the food, the service was excellent. We felt like royalty and our wine glasses were never empty. You can not go wrong with Chef's and we are looking forward to other events they put on.

He even handled a problem with my valet service without even involving me. I drew out a scetch of the cake we wanted, and the result looked and tasted amazing. It definitely exceeded all my expectaions. If you want the best service you have ever had on th emost importnat day of your life, go with Chef's Expressions. You won't have one complaint.

Chef's Expressions exceeded all our expectations. Paul Kountz, the manager, not only made sure everything went perfectly with the meal and bar service, but he stepped in and frixed the floral displays that the florist misplaced.

Paul worked with us every step of the way, always responding quickly to any concerns, and stepping in to help guide us when we had questions. The serving staff was courteous and very professional. The food was deliscious and served beautifully. I wholeheartedly endorse Chef's Exprssions, and would use them again.

Chef's Expressions made a great impression on us from day one. When we first went to their office, they had put a sign out front welcoming us, and when we first left their office they sent us home with a delicious pecan pie. These small details go a long way, and it inspired confidence in us that this was a company that recognizes the importance in the details - details being so important in an event like a wedding.

Our first time in their office, we met with Paul Kountz, the VP, and the executive chef John Walsh. Paul did an excellent job of actively listening to our vision while at the same time having lots of great suggestions for turning it into a reality. We felt that he understood what we were looking for and he displayed the confidence that they could deliver it without being overly aggressive or sales-y.

There really was no question that Chef's would be the caterer we wanted for our wedding. It was just a matter of fitting it into our budget. To this end, Paul, as usual, was very accommodating - suggesting a number of things we could do to bring the price down. He never did this grudgingly, and was perfectly happy and ready to make these suggestions to us.

On the day of the event, we could not have asked for better people to help run the show. Paul and Chef's Expressions provided so much more than food, they provided a level of comfort and confidence that is absolutely invaluable on such a momentous occasion. Paul was on site himself for the event, and clearly showed that he was a professional and knew how to make his team run smoothly. The on site team was both always readily available and also never intrusive or invasive - which is a fine line to walk. Every aspect of our event from start to finish went completely smoothly, and we owe a great amount of gratitude to Paul and his team for their contribution.

And, of course, the food was amazing! It was everything we had dreamed of. It was artistic without pretension, it was simple but full of flavor, the ingredients were fresh and delicious; it was simply perfect. I think the most difficult time we had with Chef's Expressions was picking out our appetizers and our menu, because we struggled over it for weeks! It all just looked so good and sounded so delicious to hear John speak about it.

Chef's Expressions is absolutely a fantastic choice, and we will be speaking well of them, their food, and their performance at our wedding for many years to come.

Chef's Expressions provided us with a wedding reception we really felt that conveyed a sense of who we are as a couple as well as an opportunity to bring our families together. In fact, we constantly hear how great their service, attention to detail, and quality of food is. We wish we could seamlessly pass along the compliments to Chef's Expressions as we hear them.

At no point of the process of selecting a caterer, to selecting a menu, or to selecting other details did we feel pressured at all. We worked with Paul throughout the majority of the process and he really helped us design a reception around what we felt represented who we were and would create an enjoyable environment for our friends and families. The staff at Chef's Expressions (their chefs and service people) provided us, as a couple, with fantastic service from their office and, for our guests during the wedding day, exquisite service and attention to detail that is second-to-none.

We and our guests constantly rave about everything Chef's Expressions provided us. The passed hors d'œuvre were fantastic. Instead of dinner service, we decided on three stations that represented some important parts of our lives and brining our friends and family together (they were a Thanksgiving Station, a Hawaiian Station, and an Asian Station). The presentation of the plates and the service at these stations could not have been better. Our guests keep telling us what their favorite stations were, but couldn't help tell us that they really enjoyed everything. We were also amazed at the quality of the wedding cake Chef's Expression's staff created. Not only did people keep taking pictures of the cake, they in fact ate one or more plates worth of cake.

Together, with our guests, we cannot express how gratious we are to have had Chef's Expressions as our caterer. They helped create an environment that our guests enjoyed.

Chef's Expressions went above and beyond our expectations for our wedding. We had a strict budget but really wanted our food to be great. We met Bonnie while visiting another wedding vendor and when she mentioned that her favorite wedding location was the one we finally chose, we know we'd made the right decision.

While we were woo'd by the chef during our first meeting and impressed with all the food, I was still skeptical how any caterer could serve 100 people food cooked just as perfect. Well the food served at our wedding was even better than it had been at the tasting. We had numerous people (some big foodies) comment on how great everyting was, from the home-made breads to the perfect fish.

The place was set up beautifully and Bonnie made sure the night ran smoothly without it seeming rushed or procedural. I would recommend Chef's Expressions with no hesitation to anyone looking for an outstanding event. Even if they're on a budget.

The catering staff helped us with so many small details that truly made up the night from setting up placecards to breaking down cupcake stations. We simply cannot praise Chef's Expressions enough. Our compliments to Chef John, our sincere gratitude to Kate, and many thanks to the amazing staff!

I would highly recommend Chef's Expressions Caterers for your catering needs. Bonny Opper, Dave Venable, and Chef John Walsh were awesome!!! The food was aboslutely delectable; the dinner service was prompt, professional, and curteous; and the bar service and selection got rave reviews. The Caeser salad, mixed bread basket, and Yukon mashed potatoes with sweet potatoes for dinner were to die for, not to mention the buttlered crab ball hors d'oeuvres.

Bonny took the reigns and made sure that everything was absolutely perfect, including a doggie bag for the bride and groom for the next day. We even had some unexpected guests show up for the reception and everything was taken care of so that it was seamless.

All last minute changes, additions, and coordinations were handled by Bonny and Dave and made my life so easy. She kept us on point for the timeline of the reception so that we did not miss a beat.

I can't express in enough words how perfect our reception was!!! Thanks to you all!!!! Can you guys magically appear in my kitchen?

I woke up the morning after my wedding... wishing I could do it all over again! My cheeks hurt from smiling, my feet hurt from dancing and I could remember hundreds of amazing moments with my loved ones and my new husband. The icing on the cake was that I had leftover white chocolate cheesecake lollipops for breakfast, which were every bit as delicious as I remembered.

Thanks to Paul and John, we not only had a day that I will remember FOREVER but a feeling that I still can’t shake. On my wedding day, I never worried about a thing and vividly remember everything. John Walsh created a meal that left everyone smiling from the inside out. We mixed family style food with a served four-course meal. Cheeses that melted in your mouth and fresh breads, fruits and veggies started it all. We had the best soup and a fish course that made wolfish my favorite fish of all time! The steak was so tender we cut it with our dinner forks. Even though we had a fabulous wedding cake, the desserts that Chef’s prepared stole the show. White chocolate lollipops (as already mentioned), dark chocolate cakes, and hazelnut mousse… Everyone left stuffed. I have some of the most critical family members in the world and two of them independently sent Chef’s Expressions thank you letters for serving them some of the best food they have ever eaten – wedding or not.

Paul Kountz handled every detail with finesse. My confidence in him gave me invaluable extra time with friends and family. I was amazed at how he reviewed every detail. Even at the cocktail hour, as Paul met our friends and family and re-read our table assignments, he realized I screwed up the table numbers and fixed it all before the doors opened for dinner. I could thank him a hundred times over for all the little fires that he put out… like the baskets he found us for the wedding cards, or the family members that showed up early and the fact that he brought my second course back three times because I kept being asked to dance during dinner and he wanted to make sure my food was hot when I got a chance to eat.

They let us personalize everything. It was picture perfect because it was a pure representation of Adam and I. I didn’t worry about anything, and I have more warm memories then I thought possible. We could have danced into the night if the Peabody library didn’t close at midnight. If you couldn’t tell by now, I LOVE Chef’s Expressions. We will continue using them for all the most special events in our lives.

Chef’s Expressions makes all their food from scratch. They buy from local farmers and their work shines because it is made with love. All I have to say is -- Don’t sell your love short. For your wedding day, create a day that represents yourselves. If you do then you won’t regret it. If you work with people that you connect with and who are passionate about their work then nothing can go wrong (even if the organist at the church falls asleep in the middle of mass). Oh yea, and when picking a caterer find someone who actually likes cooking and someone that you are proud to support. I am proud that my husband and I were lucky enough to have Chef’s Expression make our wedding dreams come true. What a party!

Chef's Expressions provided the catering for our wedding. We had passed Hors Dourves and stations. The food was exceptional! Everything was top notch and really met our "foodie" desires. We had many compliments such as: "Not only is this the best wedding food I've ever had, but the best food I've had in years", "Where did you ever find these guys", "Who is your caterer" and "I had to go ask the kitchen what these green things were they were soo good!" - answer "corn shoots". The food was the talk of our wedding and weeks afterward.
Kate was our coordinator with Chef's Expressions and not only did she make sure that the food was above our expectations, she took charge and filled in since we didn't have a coordinator and made sure the entire reception was perfect!
The entire experience from the planning, tasting, to the final reception was exceptional!
It's hard to pick a favorite but the shrimp and grits with the Chef's plum tomato sauce and applewood smoked bacon was to die for.

I had used Chef's Expressions for two large business functions, so it was an easy decision using them for my wedding. I worked closely with them to create a menu that would satisfy a large number of vegetarians, and at the same time, be diverse enough to make all of our guests happy. I continue to hear comments from our guests regarding how much they enjoyed the food.

I was on a budget and probably not one of Chef Expressions higher-end clients, however, I would have never known the difference. My wedding was very D.I.Y., and they were extremely accommodating to my needs. The staff was, as always, really great to work with. They even stayed until the bitter end, helping us get wedding gifts packed up in cars.

Most importantly, my wedding coordinator was top rate! She brought all of the above together and helped me execute my D.I.Y. ideas. Working with her, I knew I would not have to stress on my wedding day. As expected, everything was perfect.

I hire out tens of thousands of dollars per year for events but when it came to my own daughter's wedding I was paralyzed. I needed not just catering but someone who could stay one step ahead of me and do it with panache so I would not seem like I needed the help. Paul Kountz stepped up, brought tactful closure to indecisiveness, made stunningly accurate design decisions for finishing touches and right down to "the last dance" brought inventive solutions to last minute surprises. Paul's tolerance for this very old, single mom's desperate need to get it right all by herself was beyond graceful. As for the food? In less than a week I heard from every single one of the 150 guests, including the large # of discerning "vegetarians", that the food was as memorable as the occasion. The largely NY based crowd lauded presentation to the ultimate test - the taste. I wish I had another daughter so I could do it all over again.

I was recently referred to this website by my wedding coordinator Paul Kountz with Chef's Expressions (I hadn't heard of it before), and while checking it out was completely shocked to see any negative reviews, let alone two. Chef's Expressions was one of the best vendor decisions I made for my wedding - they were wonderful!!! I can't recommend them enough! I consider myself a "foodie" of sorts (or at least a huge fan of delicious food), and can imagine that I was not the easiest client to please :) Needless to say, Paul and the rest of the team far exceeded my expectations for the perfect day. The menu was creative and fresh, deliciously prepared and beautifully presented... and the staff outstanding. It was truly amazing - our guests called my parents for weeks after the wedding, complementing them on the reception. Definitely worth every penny! Great luck with your planning - call them, I promise you won't be disappointed!

Everyone on the Chefs team was excellent - they thought through all of the details and helped us plan our special day. They are more like wedding planners than just a caterer.

Our guests loved the food and the team was busy all night to make sure everyone was taken care of and never had an empty glass.

Bonny and Christine were excellent. Would recommend them to anyone!

Everyone at Chef's Expressions from beginning to end was terrific! We were pleased with the passed appetizers that we had chosen as well as the plated station entrees and sides.
Also, the pies (in lieu of a wedding cake) were delicious! The Chef even agreed to use a family recipe for the apple pie. The entire evening was executed as planned by a staff who made it look easy.

We wanted something a little different from your typical wedding food - comfort food with a twist and set up in stations. Chef's Expressions worked with us to develop our menu and pairings to make the food concept sing. We had started off with some simple ideas of comfort foods that we wanted served, and they took it and ran with it, and added some "fancy" to dress it up a bit. When we were in town with both of our families, they even provided a tasting for all 5 of us.

Working back and forth with them throughout the course of the year to pin down the details, was effortless. They were extremely responsive and provided professional opinions at our request which really helped. They coordinated a lot with the other vendors too.

The set up the evening of the wedding, looked perfect. There was some adjustments to the set-up during the event as we transitioned from ceremony to cocktails to dinner and beyond, and it was so seamless. Nobody even realized anything was moving around. The food and service was outstanding. Everything tasted so good, beyond our expectations, and all of the guests were raving about the menu and the presentation. Definitely not your typical wedding food (thank god!).

The only thing that was somewhat bothersome was that 3 days before the wedding, we were notified that the chairs that we had ordered (a year in advance) were not available. Paul was able to provide the same chairs but in a different wood tone (actually did work better with the space). It was just frustrating to have something like that pop up so close to the event date.

Bonny Opper and her team at Chef's Expressions are true professionals. They go above and beyond to provide you with more than you ask for. After tasting many catering options, Chef's Expressions food stood out as being the best of the best in Baltimore. But, it's not just food, it's art. Each plate was perfectly decorated, and each table setting was placed to perfection. Bonny literally acted as a wedding coordinator, in a regard. She was on top of EVERYTHING... the ceremony, the cocktail hour, the band, the cake cutting, the toasts. You name it, she did it. They tend to be a bit pricey, but your guests will have a truly unique experience. All of our guests left our wedding saying it was one of the most elegant weddings they have been to in a long time, and they were just RAVING about the food.

They are a MUST for a Baltimore bride.

So here's the thing. We were on a budget (who isn't these days??). We met with three separate caterers, and right from the start, we could tell that Chef's Expressions was a cut above the rest. We didn't think that we could afford them, but they were incredibly flexible regarding meal selections and other options to help keep things within our budget. I especially appreciated the fact that they used local fare whenever possible, and I was told by the chef that they didn't use factory-farmed meat.

They were incredibly professional throughout our experience with them, and the night of the wedding, they really made sure that we were taken care of especially. And the food. THE FOOD! I've had people go out of their way to tell me how good the food was (like I didn't know -- we definitely aren't that couple who didn't eat at their own wedding!) . . . it wasn't like the stereotypical wedding food at all. Again, they're quite flexible regarding what kind of food you like, what kind of food you wish to serve, and if you want to incorporate anything particular into the menu.

Perhaps what was most important to us, however, is the fact that we knew we didn't have to worry about a single thing the day of the wedding. Melanie couldn't have been more incredible if she tried. Any kind of request, any changes that were made, any of the zillion questions I asked, she was on top of everything 100%. It was truly a pleasure working with her.

I already recommended Chef's Expressions to someone else, and would, without a moment's hesitation, recommend them to anyone who's having a catered event.

Chef's Expressions is your dream of the perfect caterer! They are well organised and pay close attention to detail in their preparation and creation of your vision. I can say they brought the expected beauty, class and elegance to our wedding and even more than just the display and service, the food tasted amazing! We particularly loved that their chefs are well travelled and were able to make foods from our backgrounds/ upbringing that weren't originally on the menu and even surpassed our expectations. And Yes I'm one of those brides that researched every catering company in my area and would recommend that you definitely have a visit with Chef's Expressions, your decision for caterer will be pleasantly easy.

Chef's Expressions is phenomenal! The food and service are excellent and Paul, our catering manager, went above and beyond the call of duty by essentially acting as our wedding coordinator. He got in touch with our other vendors who weren't familiar with the venue to make sure they knew when to arrive and where to go. He also provided excellent recommendations for other vendors, including a wine/liquor store when we decided to buy alcohol on our own. Our cocktail hour and dinner were slightly delayed because of issues with our shuttles and Chef's Expressions adjusted its timeline without skipping a beat. The company was very accommodating when it came to our work schedules, meeting with us late in the evening during weeknights for tastings, etc. Our guests raved about the food and we loved the wide selection of hors d'oeuvres and entrees we could choose from. I actually spent very little time thinking about the cake, but Chef's Expressions made it beautiful and it tasted incredible too!

Ahhh, Chef's Expressions. Love them! I have to tell you that at first I was looking at less expensive wedding caterers and was left feeling totally uninspired. Then I said, "that's it, we gotta step it up!" and made an appt to meet with Paul at Chef's Expressions. After discussing exciting menu options and hearing about their attention to detail, it was a no-brainer...we were in. Melanie then took over our account and continued the excellent customer service. Everyone, including Chef himself, was a true pleasure to work with. They made the process so fun and the menu we came up with together was so marvelous that I wished I were having more than one wedding for them to cater! =) I couldn't wait for all of our guests to try the exquisite cuisine we had planned.

When the day arrived, everyone was blown away with how sensational the food was. Creative, elegant & modern. I can't even remember how many people said it was the best food they ever had at a wedding. The passed hors d'eouvres were perfect. My favorite was the Smoked Salmon Maki Rolls...heavenly! The Mini Lump Crab Cakes were so good that they really didn't need the big cracker they were served on. And I really appreciated that they made sure the bride & groom had our own tray and server to ensure that we got to enjoy the hors d'eouvres. That was important to me. Of course the main courses were out of this world too. People are still talking about the delicious wolfish w/ basil edamame! It was outstanding. Oh and the cake...are you kidding me? We had alternating layers of chocolate/chocolate cake & lemon/blueberry cake. The chocolate lovers were in heaven and the lemon/blueberry was perhaps the best cake I've ever had. Ok, I have to stop before I bust open the top layer that's been relegated to the freezer until our 1-year anniversary. One whole year?! How about 6 months? Ok, ok, I'll be good. ;)

Of course the main courses were out of this world too. People are still talking about the delicious wolfish w/ basil edamame! It was outstanding. Oh and the cake...are you kidding me? We had alternating layers of chocolate/chocolate cake & lemon/blueberry cake. The chocolate lovers were in heaven and the lemon/blueberry was perhaps the best cake I've ever had. Ok, I have to stop before I bust open the top layer that's been relegated to the freezer until our 1-year anniversary. One whole year?! How about 6 months? Ok, ok, I'll be good. ;) Read less

Chef's Expressions was the easiest vendor I had to work with. They are experienced and were very flexible on creating the menu I wanted. At every turn, they gave me choices that fit within my budget, but nothing ever looked like costs were cut. Their service was unbelievable and they made everything look seamless.

We recently had our wedding at the Peabody Library in Baltimore. Bonny, Christine, and the rest of the Chef's Expressions staff were wonderful. They were incredibly organized which made wedding planning easier on us. So many small decisions were made and Bonny and Christine provided such helpful insight through their experiences without steering us too much in any one direction. Their organization and attention to detail is what really stands out to us thinking back to the planning process during the months leading up to the wedding. I had so many random questions regarding the details of the night and they were always so responsive and sweet.The quality of food that was prepared at our wedding was top notch and we received many compliments during the event and for weeks afterward. The staff were professional in their attire and manner, which was also very important. We would definitely recommend Chef's Expressions to anyone who is looking for a reliable catering company. Thanks C.E. for such a positive and stress-free wedding planning experience!

Not being from the Baltimore area I had no idea where to look for a caterer for my son's rehearsal dinner - by luck I ran across Chef's Expressions website, read the reviews, called to get specific information and the rest is history. I worked with Jennifer and she fully took care of every question or need I had. She and the staff made my the night problem and stress free. I absolutely did not have to do one thing and was able to enjoy the friends and family that had come. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it - rave reviews from everyone attending. Thank you Chef's Expressions and especially Jennifer!

Chef's Expressions really delivered on our wedding needs! They are 1 of 2 approved caterers for our venue (The George Peabody Library), and after we met with both, there was no comparison. The quality, attention to detail and friendliness of Chef's Expressions was perfect. The food is excellent, not bland like a lot of weddings I have been to. Our only complaint would be the pricing becomes confusing with what seem to be hidden service fees (i.e., open bar really means open bar with liquor and beer but there is a serving fee for wine per glass and a consumption charge per bottle at the dinner). Maybe these fees are transparent to some but did not seem so to us.

Aside from this Chef's Expressions did an excellent job at our wedding with no issues at all. All dietary restricted/kosher meals were accurately distributed and the quality of food great. We received so many compliments from our guests on all of the service and food selections. They also helped with the decor setup for our cocktail hour and reception. Everything was beautiful.

When we first started working with Chef's Expressions we worked with Paul Kountz but he ended up leaving the company so we worked with Christine Berencz and Bonny Opper towards the actual wedding day. All were very helpful and responsive to our wedding needs!

Definitely a pricy choice, but quality of services, food, and staff is evident. Christine and Bonny were always quick to respond and accomodated all of our requests. Because of the expertise these 2 have, our wedding was a well-oiled machine. Wait staff and bartenders were professional at all times. Food was delicious, but the only complaint received was the lack of hors d'oeurves circulating during cocktail hour. For the price paid, expectations were high. Overall, Chef's always went the extra mile to make our wedding exceptional and it was a pleasure working with this team.

Chef's Expressions catered our wedding at the AVAM on 10/27/12 and they were wonderful! We got so many compliments on the food. We had a cocktail style reception with 10 different passed hor d'oeuvres and 3 stations and everything was delicious. Although Chef's is one of the more expensive caterers it is worth it- their food is very high quality and they have fabulous service. Melanie acted as a a de facto day of organizer- she coordinated the arrival and set up of our various vendors. They even packed us food to take home so we could try everything the next day. The one con is that up until the week before our wedding it would sometimes take a while for Melanie to get back to me, but she would always respond. We highly recommend Chef's Expression.

Bonny, Christine and the entire Chef's Expressions Team helped make our wedding perfect. The food was delicious, elegant, and refined, but not stuffy. People came up to us and raved about how it was the best wedding food they had ever had. Aside from the food, Bonny and Christine are extremely organized, responsive and professional. They always promptly responded to any questions or requests. They knew our venue inside and out (the Peabody) and worked with us during our relatively short wedding planning time frame. We dropped off decorative items the day before the wedding with a description of set-up, and when we arrived for the wedding, everything was executed flawlessly. Even other vendors we worked with commented on how they loved working with Chef's Expressions. The only very minor thing I would suggest is a more itemized invoice. I know they probably keep this more general so as not to confuse people, but I am a numbers person and like to see exactly how much each hors d'oeuvre, etc. is costing us. Regardless, I would wholeheartedly recommend Chef's Expression to any brides!

I am so happy that we chose CE for our wedding. Bonnie and Christine were very attentive and responsive, as they took care of the entire day. We were able to design our menu to what we cook at home and they are so many choices. Bonnie is so accomodating, which is a major relief in the wedding industry. All of our guests are still raving around the food. As a bride, the last thing you want to worry about on your wedding day are the decoration details. All I had to do was provide them with my decorations I put together and they took care of setting up. Everything looked so lovely. When you hire CE you also hire a very attentive wedding planning team. They took care of the timeline, the flow of the wedding, along with the alcohol, cake and dinner. We were so pleased with the kindness of CE, as well as the efficiency and professionalism that provided on the most important day of our lives!

If you want to know the secret to a perfect wedding day, it's putting the right people in charge. After 3 meetings with Bonny and Christine, I knew they understood my vision, not only with regards to food, but seating charts, decor, timeline, etc. Our guests, the DJ, the venue, everyone came to me to express their admiration of C.E. Not only was the food classy and tastey, but the service was outstanding. My wedding day was a lovely, perfect wedding day, and I'm eternally grateful to C.E.

Bonny and her team were a pleasure to work with. Their love of food and understanding of what my husband I wanted gave us a wedding that provided exactly what we wanted....excellent, fun food with a gourmet touch. Everyone commented on the quality of the food, the variety, as well as the unique presentation. As a bride, I was hesitant to let my caterer handle my wedding cake. I thought that only a fancy bakery would do what I wanted justice. I was overwhelmed by how beautiful my cake was, not to mention how delicious. Service was wonderful and despite temperatures well over 100 degrees, a fabulous night was had by all. Thanks Bonny and everyone at Chef's for giving us a truly special evening.

We worked with Chef's Expressions for our October 29, 2011 wedding, and are very glad we did. Everyone we talked to said we had the best wedding food ever, and everything we were able to taste that night was stellar. More important, however, was the level of professionalism displayed by everyone at Chef's. First, the wait staff working the night of our wedding was friendly, polite, and extremely helpful. They repeatedly asked us if there was anything we needed or that they could do, and the service over-all was beautiful. Second, the management at Chef's was extremely patient and flexible-- when we had an unexpected family emergency and greatly reduced our guest list, Paul Kountz in particular worked with us to totally redesign our menu, and he could not have been more gracious. We highly recommend Chef's Expressions.

Chef's Expressions (Melanie and Chef John Walsh) were wonderful to work with. Our guests still rave about the AMAZING food! And food was probably one of the most important elements to us in our wedding. We both have quite a love of food and all things gourmet, so our standards were high.

Our venue, Evergreen Museum & Library, had a select number of caterers to choose from. We sampled four of them and Chef's was really top notch. We also liked Linwoods; however, they could not get within our budget but Chef's was great at working with our budget and needs.

Although most of our interaction was through our wedding planner, I could tell Chef's /Melanie responded quickly to any questions or concerns. Chef's was also great at tweaking all of the items to fit exactly what we wanted. Take off here or add here. Chef John Walsh was especially great at coming up with delicious ideas. At both our tastings his creativity really shined through as he brainstormed dishes and presentation ideas. We really felt like we had food that no one else has had.

Chef's also came up with a unique idea of having a seated first course (soup and salad) but then have small plate dinner stations. We did not want a formal seated meal, but didn't want a full-on buffet line either. It was so great having four different small plate entrees to taste! And each was plated on the spot, so spooning food out of chafing dishes was avoided and the whole reception just felt casual and elegant. The only downside to this system was probably that there were a lot of plates to keep cleaning up and turning over. So, the tables did get a little piled up as it was difficult for staff to keep up with all of the empty dishes. But a good sign that guests just kept eating and eating!

Overall service at our reception was great. Chef's picked up our cupcakes for us down in DC. The staff were knowledgeable about all the dishes. And Chef's made sure we ate, bringing us a sample of all the hors d'oeuvres as well as asking us for drink orders. They even compiled a to go set of almost every dish (which really came in handy later that night when we realized we hardly ate anything at dinner).

We would strongly recommend using Chef's for your wedding or any special event!

I have worked with many caterers in professional and personal capacities and I am absolutely delighted that we picked Chef's Expressions to cater our wedding. From the very moment we arrived at their office we felt like Chef's Expressions really wanted our business and make us feel like we were valued clients. I truly commend the professional staff at Chef's who made sure that our planning went smoothly and that the event was seamless and picture perfect. The food was delicious and many of our guests made a point to tell us how much they enjoyed our selections.

Our special thanks go to Bonny Opper and Christine Berenz for making sure that we covered every little detail together and for sharing their collective experience which made our event that much better. They really went above and beyond to make our guests feel special and cared for.

The entire staff that evening was fabulous and we appreciated their friendly and professional demeanor. Their customer service is tremendous and we would highly recommend Chef's Expressions to anyone.

Paul and the team did a fabulous job at our wedding. The room was gorgeous, the service was fantastic, and the food was really good. Overall I was very pleased and would not hesitate to book them again.

The only negatives were a few things with the cost/billing. After sending us several contracts over a year, Paul sent us a final bill that was nearly 2,000 more than all of the other contracts. When I asked him about this, he apologized and said it was a mistake, and sent a revised one.

The other thing was that he had initially waived the gratuity, along with a few other charges, which got the contract into our budget. Then, close to the wedding, he informed us that it was customary (not required, though) to tip the staff in the range of 1200-2000 total. We just felt a bit misled, as we were already at the very high end of our budget to afford this caterer (they are definitely expensive).

The only service related complaint is several guests told us that their cake was cleared from their places when they left it for a second, so they never got a chance to eat it.

On the whole though--as I said--we were very happy with Chef's Expressions and would book them again for future events. The service was excellent and it was priceless having a caterer I could trust to do an outstanding job!

Chef's Expressions is a professional and fine tuned service provider. While not low cost, you get more than you pay for and I was impressed by their adaptability. During set up (which was extensive and in a short time, It was clear that the team led by Paul Kountz was exercising a finely tuned orchestration of setting up and delivering a transformation of an amazing Library into a beautiful ball room. In the middle of that I threw in a twist they didn't plan on to help with a little project I concocted. They never lost a beat. Throughout the event Paul and team where on the spot and able to constantly adapt. The Chef's creation was amazing and enjoyed by everyone. The presentation and taste exquisite. Deserts where great and had everyone talking... All-in-all the company name is an understatement. The event ended and the team was eqaully proficient and felxible in the tear-down (my only hiccup was that I failed to have a plan for transporting the gifts, extra wine and bar supplies provided by a different vendor which if I left to Chef's Experessions, might have cost a little more but would have been less a stressor at what was otherwise a flawless event. I just didn't anticipate the post event logistics for moving gifts, extra wine, etc...) Again, They did great and appreciate the effort and flexibility. Its always the little things! Would highly recommend.

Chef's Expressions did a wonderful job making sure I had nothing to worry about. They took care of more than just the food and wine, they also served as "wedding planner." The food was beautifully presented and the service was outstanding. They are very expensive. I preferred the hors d'oeuvres to the meal.

I worked with Melanie and chefs expressions and she was awesome. We went out for one tasting and chose a few things we liked but changed a lot around. She had a lot to handle because my husband is a chef and is very picky. We went with stations and could not have been happier. I know, for sure, the food was one of the highlights of the night. We had so many complements on how unique the food was and how much everyone enjoyed trying everything. Melanie was able to work around our craziness and include every thing we wanted (including an Indian station, Mexican station, whoopie pies and milkshakes!). I couldn't be happier and this was one of the most important parts of the wedding for me and my husband!

Chef's Expressions went above and beyond to provide delicious unique food and service for our wedding and rehearsal dinner. You owe it to yourself to book Chef's! They are tried and true in the area and know what they are doing. Their crab appetizers especially got rave reviews from our guests. Bonny and her team were so easy to work with and made planning our Maryland wedding a breeze--and we did it mostly via email and phone from 3,000 miles away in California in just a few months! Chef's accommodated our tight schedule for tasting, were so helpful in putting together a menu for our rehearsal dinner (even using a family recipe), stayed long hours to make sure everything was perfect, made sure all of our requested craft beers were available, and put together a few new dishes for our wedding reception including a great salad! The service was impeccable and no one was ever left wanting anything. Many thanks to owner and head chef Jerry for stopping by our sweetheart table to say hi. We are foodies and evn though Chef's food was pricey, we are so glad we went with them. Highly recommended!

positives: There was open, direct and honest communication with Chef's Expression (CE) during the planning process and it resulted in an outstanding event. CE was flexible, honest and ultimately there were no hidden surprises - they delivered on everything they promised. During the event, many of our gusts commented on the professional staff that was very attentive, friendly and responsive, yet seemingly unobtrusive. Also, the wedding cake (chef's choice) was a hit - both taste and presentation

constructive feedback: The meals were very tasty and well presented, but most of the kids commented that thier food was cold. The adult meals could have been a bit warmer (realize the off-site preparation has its challenges)

All in all, CE gets very high marks and we would highly recommend CE to others

When searching for a caterer for our wedding, we were looking for someone who is flexible and would provide food that everyone would enjoy. I am a vegetarian and we wanted the option for the guests to choose between a meat or meatless meal that would be almost identical save for the protein. Chef's Expressions came through with flying colors. We chose chicken for the meat option and quorn chicken cutlets for the meatless option. I was delighted how they were able to make the quorn chicken cutlets juicy instead of the drier version that I was accustomed to. From the food to the decorations and the service our wedding was everything that we wanted it to be. One of our more particular guests remarked "Usually the food at a wedding is bland and the chicken is dry but that food was really good, I'd eat it again" and coming from them this was a HUGE compliment.

We originally selected Chef's Expressions from a list of approved caterers required by our reception venue, the Gramercy Mansion, but were quickly impressed with the originality and quality of the food. We are aspiring foodies and the food was one of the most important aspects of wedding planning for us. We wanted to find a caterer who would go beyond traditional dishes, incorporate flavors from our respective cultures, and make something that would please our guests, but also be fun, creative, and memorable. Chef's was incredibly inventive when designing our menu, which consisted of six appetizers during cocktail hour and three dinner stations, as well as wedding cake, fruit, and an “action” ice-cream station, with ice-cream made on-the-spot using dry ice. This definitely added a wow factor to the reception! It is clear that John Walsh, their Executive Chef, truly enjoys his work. He personally came to speak with us at our tasting (which Chef’s provides complimentary for four people), which was phenomenal and got us very excited for our wedding.

At our wedding, many people complimented us on the food. The presentation of the food on the plate was beautiful and servers were discrete and efficient. Our beef station was definitely the most popular, and they actually ran out of mashed potatoes. Our wedding cake, particularly the carrot cake and yellow cake with lemon curd, was also amazing, moist, and flavorful. We did have a few issues with the food on the wedding day, however. Guests told us afterwards that most of them only got to sample one or two of the six appetizers during cocktail hour, and that food ran out quickly. This was a concern of ours from the beginning, which we had made Chef’s aware of. Also – and perhaps this was because we were the last ones to the stations – when we took plates from the pasta and fish stations, the food was cold. Not room temperature, but cold. This was a little disappointing, particularly since the food at the tasting had been so spectacular.

Admittedly, Chef’s is not the cheapest caterer in the area, but they were more than willing to work within our budget and were extremely flexible. They reduced many of the service fees and as a bonus for signing with them, they provided our wedding cake (for which we would have normally paid $3.50 per slice), with multiple flavored tiers and basic buttercream decorations, for free. They also permitted us to supply our own alcohol and provided the mix-ins and servers. Overall, we feel we received a very good value.

We worked with Bonny Opper as our wedding coordinator. Bonny was a fantastic contact and generally very responsive. She also doubled as a day-of-coordinator, which made things run so smoothly on our wedding day. We provided her with a list of our vendors and Bonny took the initiative to contact them and schedule their arrivals. I didn’t have to do a thing! She coordinated the ceremony and signaled each member of the wedding party when it was time to process to the ceremony site. She also wisely advised the bride and groom to take a few private minutes during the cocktail hour for ourselves in our room, to be happy together and reflect on the ceremony, and assigned us a wonderful personal attendant who made sure that we had plenty of hors d’oeuvres and drinks. Chef’s also left several meals and cake in our fridge at the end of the night, in case we hadn’t gotten a chance to eat during the reception.

We believed that our caterer was one of our most important vendors and in the end, beyond some minor issues, we would recommend Chef’s Expressions and particularly Bonny for any Baltimore wedding.

An upscale caterer. You can expect exquisite, impressive-looking, tasty food from Chef John. The food looks as good as it tastes. Chef John loves what he does and his exuberance for creating dishes is infectious. The event staff was excellent. If you are having an elegant, upscale event, then look no further.

You may want to inquire more than I did about how they keep the food hot if you are doing a buffet. They tend to do sit-downs, but I wanted a buffet. They don't like to use warming trays and prefer platters, which is nicer but does not keep the food hot enough.

One recommendation, however, if you are detail-oriented, is to hire a day of coordinator to handle the details for you. I was asked not to hire a day of coordinator and that the event planner would handle those details. However, she kept forgetting details I had told her and did not seem to be taking direction well. She was a very nice woman, but I really needed someone that was paying a bit more attention in the weeks leading up to the wedding.

Additional Comments from Bride above;
Bonny,
I am finally getting o the end of my thank you notes, but did not want to forget to thank you. I can not tell you what a wonderful job you did w/ me wedding & how wildly impressed I was. Everyone raved about the food & the presentation, it was flawless. The leftovers you packaged where the only good thing about heading back to work the next week! Of the million things I had to choose for the wedding, you & Chef's was absolutely the best choice I made, you gave me exactly what I wanted & then some. From the tasting (which was such a fun & relaxing evening, my parents loved it), to your easy guidance in getting things organized (love the 2 page to the point sheet), to the set up/transition of the evening(happened w/o me even noticing), to the presentation of the food(WOW!), really wonderful. Thank you again, I can't say enough, you made my evening stress free and memorable. I have already started passing your name along.

Working with Chef's was really wonderful and Paul became an integral part of our wedding team. It was a joy to have him at our wedding and the service and quality provided that day exceeded our expectations.

I would recommend having a clear plan for settling all debts with the caterers and other vendors. It gets extremely stressful in the days leading up to the wedding and the last thing you want to worry about is paying your caterer the day before your wedding.

All in all, everything went very well. Positives were that everyone had a great time, the staff was attentive, the schedule was stuck to, and the food was good. Melanie was easy to work with, had great suggestions, and worked with our many "opinions" at the table. The appetizers were amazing, and the service was excellent, and very attentive.
Downsides were at time it took a while for Melanie to get back to us on answers to things (but I think it was more of an indication that she has a lot of clients and she knew she'd get to it, but it made me a bit uneasy when days would pass without response... but I also chose a very busy season to get married). We made some menu changes during the tasting, and then the fish was really bland on the day of because we hadn't tried it during the tasting. The potatoes and meat were not made "right" during the tasting, and so we were worried going into the dinner that they wouldn't be right then.... but they were both delicious.

Again, all in all, everything was great! The food was fun and creative. We expected a few bumps in the road, and that's all it was! I'd recommend Chef's Expressions, and Melanie!

Chef's Expressions was a wonderful company to work with. It was pricey, but our wedding turned out to be the personal, creative, elegant, and beautiful event due in no small part to the role that chef's played. Bonny facilitated a smooth evening, and the wait staff was good. The setup of the room was flawless. It was never difficult to get in touch during the planning process to make changes and seek ideas or assistance with aspects of the planning even unrelated to food and beverage.

Chef's expressions did a great job at my wedding. Paul Kountz oversaw every detail and I got great remarks on him and his staff. The only thing I felt was slightly short was the food. They did estimate how much to bring based on my head count, but unfortunately because I did buffet style, some people got left with just salad, even when two of my guests couldn't come. I think they should have stocked more food, because I assume that some people took more than what they felt was one person's serving. But other than that, the staff was very friendly, professional and quick at setting up, serving the guests and cleaning up. The food was great. Just wish there was more for what we paid. The cake was also done by their staff, which they did an excellent job on. Matched the photo I had sent. The great thing about Chef's expressions it that most of their stuff is locally shopped or organic, which is what was important to me.

I have to say, based on all of the reviews on here, I really had high hopes for Chefs Expressions, but I can only offer a mixed review.

Pro: We got rave reviews on the food

Pro: They assigned a server specifically to me (the bride) during the cocktail hour, who was great! She was very very nice, very responsive. It was a nice touch.

Con: We ordered 3 desserts to supplement the cake. I don't know of a single table that got all 3. Some didn't get any! Why at least the staff didn't ensure that every table got at least one, I have no idea.

The day after the wedding we emailed Paul, and he quickly looked into it and determined that they didn't order enough desserts and immediately offered a partial refund. Which was nice (relatively), except after repeatedly promising to mail it out, it's 3 weeks later and we haven't received it. The whole situation is really disappointing. I honestly expected more from CE.

Con: I was told there would be extra veggie meals to accommodate last-minute requests, but when a cousin requested one, she was told there weren’t any extras prepared.

Con: Only some tables, regardless of whether they were seated or not, got the cake.

All in all, people loved the food. But Chef's Expressions didn't deliver completely on what was expected and I'm left kinda disappointed.

Check to make sure your menu tasting will be included, as we were invited as "guests" to a wine dinner, before even signing a contract, and then told later that once a couple has attended a wine dinner you have to pay to have a tasting of the food that's going to be served at your event. Had we been told this up front, clearly we would have chosen to taste the food that they would actually be serving at our wedding. Additionally, we may not have even signed the contract in the first place having never sampled any of their product. Considering the cost of their services, we were shocked that they tried to get us to pay more for a menu tasting. I've heard that Chef's has changed their policy on this, so it shouldn't be a problem for anyone in the future but it came as quite a surprise in our situation.

That being said, all of my guests said the food was great but my husband and I didn't really get to try much of it and nothing was put aside for us for later. I did notice that the presentation of some of the dishes was not nearly as nice as it was at our tasting. Overall, I would say we were happy, but not exactly blown away.

I also need to mention that Kate Beck, our planner with Chef's, was fantastic! I wish I had the opportunity to review her services alone because she really went out of her way to make sure we got what we wanted. I would work with Kate again in a heartbeat!

I do not recommend them. They will say and do anything to get your money and once they have a signed contract, they ignore your wishes. The buffet dinner for my wedding did not have all the items we requested or had incorrect items. They even made changes to our menu without bothering to inform us! Moreover, the food was either undercooked or overcooked. My aunts said afterwards that they should have cooked the food themselves - that's how bad it was. They don't pay attention to details and their customer service is lacking. When I called to complain, the VP Paul said I was being petty and the chef John became defensive (I should have known better than to expect a French-trained chef to know how to make any other cuisine). They make promises in the beginning ("you will get to taste the entire menu," "it will be exactly how you want it," "everything will be perfect," etc.) and then don't deliver. Stay away!

Notice the flippant remarks below - this is the level of customer service you can expect. And the omission of the primary complaints - undercooked potatoes, dry overcooked chicken, incorrect bread hard as cardboard. If you can't cook chickpeas according to specific recipe directions, might as well use canned (unless you like eating food the consistency of pebbles). Of course, if the recipes had actually been read, simple mistakes would have been avoided. But wait, they said they've made this ethnic cuisine several times. Yeah, okay. They're not interested in the facts - if their staff thinks everything was fine, then your comments are belittled. Nevermind the dozens of people who would testify to my complaints, under oath if necessary. Making false claims - that's called false advertising. And making substitutions to a contract without a simple check with the client - breach of contract. A bad experience might be rare, but do you really want to risk that for your wedding?

The food on our day wasn’t exactly the food we had at our tasting. There was some confusion around the type of fish and it would be prepared, but our guests were happy and at the end of the day, that’s all that mattered. The first tasting we had wasn’t perfect, but the 2nd tasting was a HOME RUN. Selecting a caterer can be one of the most difficult vendor choices for your wedding, but the staff at CE is very nice and accommodating.
