We are so thrilled to have had Ken cater our small vow renewal on Pass-a-Grille beach. He planned a simple menu based on our preferences and truly seemed to desire our input in the food options. We found the quote he initially gave us to be very reasonable and actually found the final bill to be less than we had anticipated. (What a nice surprise!) As others have previously mentioned, he can, at times, be a bit slow in responding to emails, but we realized this going in, based on researching reviews. Waiting a little longer on an email response was well worth Ken's level of service and quality of food on the day of our event. We found him to be very accommadating, agreeing to set up tables on the beach with centerpieces we provided ourselves. We would not hesitate to highly recommend Ken to anyone requiring catering services.

I wish I could eat Ken's food everyday! We chose to do a "stations" concept at our outdoor beach wedding. The stations worked out perfectly, and there was SO MUCH food! The quality and service your receive for the price is second to none. Most of the other catering quotes were double what we paid, and didn't include the quality of food we were looking for! Everyone raved about the food and how it was so different from "typical" wedding food, we are still getting comments from the guests about the chimichurri steak! We had some guests the wedding who have celiac disease, so they could not have gluten. Ken could not have been more accommodating and innovative with helping us to create a menu that had numerous gluten free options that pleased all of our guests. LOVE Chives catering and highly recommend them!

The food was great! Our guests loved the food and all of our vegetarians were very pleased. His response times on emails were not as fast as it could be but everything turned out fabulous and budget friendly.

When we first began planning our destination wedding, we knew it would be small and originally planned on just having some finger foods for our guests. Once planning got into full swing and we had a beautiful venue, with beautiful décor, and all of the bells and whistles, we knew we needed good food. Chives Catering was recommended to us by our event planner and we trusted her completely. We choose appetizers and a buffet meal, and it was AMAZING. Our guests loved their meals, and besides a little asparagus, there wasn't a thing to take home. They provided a bartender to better help serve our guests and their servers were professional, helpful and wonderful in everyway.
We are so happy that we chose Chives and 100 % recommend them to any couple who are in the planning stages :)

Chef Ken is one of a kind. He cares. Every question I had was returned with an answer. If I wanted something unique and special, he did it without hesitation. He came to our home for a tasting and prepared a feast for us and our parents. We had all heavy hors d'oeuvres, mostly passed, throughout our reception. The food was amazing. Ken is amazing. He is beyond experienced and you would be lucky to have him be your caterer.

The food that Ken provided was absolutely amazing. There is no doubt that he is a seasoned chef that works with quality ingredients. There was an issue with responsiveness and communication during the planning process. However, Ken came through in the end. Another issue was attention to detail. We had made several requests to take place before/during the reception that did not occur. More direction could have been given to the staff throughout the event. Overall, we were very happy with the food and satisfied with our experience.

I had a destination wedding on the beach and so I was planning everything from out of town and Ken with Chives Catering was great to deal with. We were able to do almost everything over the phone and email and it worked great. He really listened to exactly what we were looking for and put together a custom menu. They worked with my budget and I couldn't have been happier of how it turned out. Food was one thing that was really important to me when planning my wedding because that is one of the things that everyone remembers. The food was amazing and everyone was ranting and raving about it. On top of the food be amazing their staff was out of this world! They were so attentive to all of my guests and to myself and really made sure that I was having a good time and wasn’t worry about anything. I didn’t have to worry about anything, they had everything covered. I would recommend Chives Catering time and time again. They just really went above and beyond in every aspect.

The Chive catering team was amazing! They exceeded my expectations in every way and more and really made our evening. My biggest complaint about most weddings is that the food is just okay and that is something that I really wanted people to remember at my wedding and they defiantly did. We had a variety of food that everyone could find something to eat and it was excellent and everyone went back for seconds and even thirds. The service was incredible - I my line of work I am use to running the events so it was hard for me to step back and every time I thought of something to be done the staff was always one or two steps ahead of me and had it done and were just very pleasant to deal with. I would highly recommend Chives Catering and will be using them in the future.
