we could not be more excited to use Chowgirls for our wedding next year. The food has absolutely exceeded our expectations for what catering could be for a large group!

Chowgirls were everything I could have hoped for and more. They were extremely accommodating and communicated very well throughout the process. I could not have had an easier time planning the catering from half way across the country. The staff were very friendly and responsive and even ran out to get more ice when we ran out. They ran around tirelessly in the 90 degree heat with no complaints and accommodated every request. They truly worked hard to make our wedding memorable and I would recommend them to anyone.

And that is just their service, the food was spectacular! My only regret is not being able to try more! Every dish we ordered was unique, tremendously flavorful and original. As someone who enjoys cooking and quality food, the catering I have experienced in the past was always bland and boring, Chowgirls definitely stand out from the pack. I wish I could get married again just so I can have Chowgirls cater.

Thank you Kari and the Chowgirls staff for literally spicing up our wedding!

We had a great overall wedding day with Chowgirls/Solar Arts, everyone was very nice and helpful. The issue we had was with the main course food amount. They only served half the amount of tacos/meat we paid for per person (because they knew they were running out very early on in the buffet service) and they still ran out of food before everyone went through the buffet line. They got more food to us before the end of dessert but many tables didn't know there was more food. They did refund us for some of the taco cost but running out of food left us somewhat disappointed with the overall food planning.

We loved working with Chowgirls for our wedding! They were really flexible as we discussed food options (ex: we love brunch and wanted to incorporate some of our favorite brunch foods into our dinner buffet). Eleni helped us think through the best combinations and made great suggestions along the way. During our wedding, the catering manager introduced herself to us early in the evening and checked in throughout the night. The food was awesome - we received glowing compliments about the food from guests. I'd highly recommend working with them!

Chow Girls was delicious. Our guests loved the appetizers and meals and we were very pleased with their service. They were responsive and very flexible with food allergies and could easily make many of their options gluten free. We would use them again for other family events.

We can't thank Chow Girls enough for their amazing food and staff. Our wedding was a month ago and we keep hearing how delicious the food was from friends and family and couldn't agree more! In addition to superb food, the staff were
professional and so accommodating. It was all exactly what we wanted. Specifically, it was important to me to find a company who thinks about environmental impact. I was impressed with their stewardship/mission. We wanted local (I mean it was August in MN!) and yummy. It was also important to us to meet the dietary needs of our guests. My vegan matron of honor and her family could not have been happier with the quality and variety of food they were served to meet their dietary preferences. I will add that I also love that we supported a female-owned business! Go girls! We would happily recommend Chow Girls' services to any of our friends or family in the future and hope to work with them again some day.

I can't say enough great things about ChowGirls--the food was amazing, the people were kind and friendly and a joy to work with. Best of all, everyone felt really good about eating a healthy and delicious meal (not weighed down and sluggish) and we felt great about supporting a company like this one. Hire them!

Chowgirls catered dinner for our rehearsal dinner and wedding, and they were absolutely fantastic! The food was spectacular with completely different menus for both meals. At our wedding, they grilled chicken and salmon on site, which was awesome. There were many people with dietary restrictions at our wedding (gluten free, vegan, dairy free, diary and nut allergies, etc), and they were AMAZING at accommodating their needs. We worked most directly with Meghan who was spectacular. She was organized, prompt, and enthused throughout the whole process. We couldn't have been more pleased with our experience and highly recommend Chowgirls for any event.
