These folks were terrific! We looked at a couple of other caterers before settling on Chef's Expressions and were very glad we did our research and shopped around. In the end, we couldn't have been happier with their food, their service, or their responsiveness. Sorting out the details of the event was surprisingly easy. Bonny and Alicia were very willing to work with us to make the day exactly what we wanted, and they had good suggestions to help us make informed decisions. The tasting was fun (and delicious), and they were happy to modify particular items as requested and to accommodate our vegan guests. Chef's Expressions provided a proposed floor plan for the reception hall and even took care of small items like striped straws in our colors for the specialty drinks.

On the day of the wedding, their team exhibited a level of professionalism that was really hard to believe. The set-up went like clockwork, and during the event itself, the servers were charming and efficient and seemed only too happy to be part of the day. We had one server assigned just to us, and he helped to ensure that we got to enjoy the food and drink as much as possible. The tables and buffet looked very elegant, and Chef's Expressions even arranged for a tent over the terrace, which was a nice touch.

Our reception was an afternoon tea with passed hors d'oeuvres beforehand and cake afterwards. The caterer's chef is English and understood exactly what we wanted. The lobster rolls and crab "spoons" were absolutely delicious, and the scones and cucumber sandwiches won praise from our English and American guests alike. With lemon curd and blueberries between the layers, the cake was the best I had ever eaten at a wedding.

I suppose Chef's Expressions is a little more expensive than some caterers, but we got excellent value for our money. Our guests couldn't say enough nice things about the day. I only wish I had another big event in the offing so I could use this caterer again!

Working with Bonny and Alicia was amazing. We planned a wedding in Maryland from San Diego and I only met with them once to do a tasting. Everything else was coordinated via email and Chefs Expressions delivered. Every detail we had coordinated was perfect. Everything went well and as a result, we had an amazing wedding. The food was amazing and tasted exactly the same as it did when I had a tasting. I heard nothing but positive feedback on the food from our guests.

Chef's Expressions catered my sister's Wedding and a Brunch that I gave. The food was delicious, beautifully presented, included ingredients we wanted and none of what we didn't, they were aware of our food allergies, and the staff was fabulous - professional, understated, fully accommodated our family & guests. After both events I looked for a chance to entertain again so that they could come back. All we had to do was enjoy! Highly recommend for top-shelf cuisine and service. - p.s. Alicia is awesome!

Wonderful food! Careful planning and personal attention from start to finish. A first-rate caterer! Bonny Opper, Alicia Strawderman and their team put on a beautiful wedding reception and dinner for us. Everything looked and tasted delicious and the chef did a great job customizing the menu for guests with special diets. The wait staff made sure that we took time to eat when we weren't mingling with guests, and they stocked our room with goodies for later, too. Chef's Expressions also catered our farewell brunch, which was another beautifully-presented and sumptuous meal.

Bonny, Alicia, and Lauren from Chef's Expressions are FABULOUS! They had our backs the entire time planing this wedding, and the day of. I will forever thank them for helping us execute our dream wedding. And THANK YOU to the entire serving and kitchen staff! I tried to shake all of their hands and learn their names but there were so many hard working people at my wedding, I could not get to them all. Amelia was the server for our sweetheart table and she was such a sweetheart herself. The food was excellent, the service was so friendly, and our guests said the entire thing was so classy. We told them that my now husband is half Hawaiian and they modified some of their existing dishes to add an "island flair". They even decorated the dishes with hibiscus flowers - such a sweet surprise for us. The cake tasted amazing, and the table set ups were beyond what we could have imagined. I never got the chance to meet the owner but he really helped us manage our costs to stay to our budget. He also picked our white and red wines for the night - amazing! My husband asked to take a picture of the bottles during dinner because they were so great. We are searching for the wines now so we can start drinking them at home! There were a few engaged couples at our wedding, one of which has already asked me for Chef's Expressions contact information because she wants to look into having them do her wedding as well. I cannot thank everyone at Chef's Expressions enough. They are so professional, talented, and kind. Thank you!!!!

Bonny and the Chef's Expressions team provided an incredible menu for our wedding in November 2015! Bonny was a pleasure to work with. She was accommodating for in-person meetings and also quick to respond to emails. After a tasting at their office, we knew Chef's was the best option for our wedding. They designed an incredible menu of a fall harvest salad and butternut squash soup duo, a second course of mushroom ravioli, and braised beef short ribs for the third course--each course was delicious! The hors d'oeuvres at cocktail hour were also great. Our guests are still raving about the food.

Chef's also made us a beautifully decorated and delicious four-tier wedding cake (we had alternating tiers of yellow cake with lemon curd and blueberries and chocolate cake with hazelnut mousse). We opted for passed desserts in addition to cake, and they were a big hit with our guests.

During our reception, Bonny assigned one of her waitstaff to tend to us and make sure we had enough to eat and drink, which we greatly appreciated. Bonny also worked with our wedding planner and venue coordinator to keep the reception on schedule. Additionally, Bonny was flexible with building our bar menu and we arranged to have a champagne toast for guests when they entered the cocktail hour room after the ceremony.

Chef's excellent food and customer service made our wedding day!

I first had contact with this vendor at the Gramercy's open house. The woman who attended the event was very friendly and knowledgable. I told her that I planned to do a "caramel apple bar" and she said that it was not on their menu, but they could make it happen. I was MORE than excited. The food they brought with them to the open house was amazing! The decision was instant.

We met with them not too long ago to plan a menu and pick out the linens. The staff is very helpful and Bonnie is awesome!

I knew from the moment we pulled up to Chef’s Expression and there was a reserved parking spot for us this catering company was not like others we met with. We worked with Jen and she could not have been more helpful. She was extremely familiar with our venue and was able to paint a picture in our mind that was even more beautiful when the real day came around. Throughout the process Jen acted as more than an event design consultant, she helped as a wedding planner would. Jen answered ALL my emails in a timely manner and always offered superb assistance. We attended one of their monthly wine dinners and had the opportunity to meet the owner who was just as lovely as Jen. As for the food and the service, it could not have been more spot on. Our appetizers were the most AMAZING wedding apps I have ever had. Our guests were so impressed. The meals came out quickly and were delicious. We had a special attended who catered to my husband and I all night. The cake was beautiful and tasty! At the end of the night I was sad to say bye to Jen since we had been in close contact for a year and she helped make sure everything was as I wished that night. I would highly recommend Chef’s Expressions! They single handedly made our wedding perfect.
