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.

Before we even chose our venue, I knew that I wanted Chowgirls to cater our wedding no matter what. They didn't disappoint. My husband and I did a full vegan wedding, and they did their best to help us plan a meal that the meat eaters wouldn't be scared to eat and enjoy. They set up and decorated the venue for us, and made sure it was clean when they left. Meghan was awesome to work with.

Chowgirls was our main contact throughout the entire planning process and so helpful all along the way.
They helped us determine the best way to execute an integrated dinner/ceremony and talked us through every aspect of the wedding.
The option to have our contact at Chowgirls also serve as event consultant and handle table/chair rental was extremely helpful and well worth the additional fee. They found reasonably priced equipment, made sure delivery/pickup and on-site setup/tear down were executed very professionally.
The courtesy of additional staff during the actual event was also very much appreciated. Our guests felt well taken care of all evening.
Most of all, the FOOD was delicious and beautifully crafted/presented!

Our food was so good! It was really important to us to support a local business who also uses local suppliers. We wanted our food to reflect the importance we put on feeding yourself well and it was perfect. We did sandwiches and appetizers. Everyone was really impressed and said it made it feel like not just any old wedding. Everyone at Chowgirls was fantastic with communication, customizing everything down to the platter tray sizes, and making it easy for our guests with allergies to partake. Only docked one star in flexibility because it was going to be extremely expensive to deliver to our venue 40 min away, much more than other caterers in the cities, but we found friends to deliver and they were really nice about helping them pick everything up and timed it perfectly, so it was worth it to us. Can't say enough good things, thank you!
