Food was great along with service, but was upset about leftovers. They put the salad and dressing in a bad together so when we got home from our wedding it was so soggy and we had to throw away three bags!!! Also they did not include gratuity so on the night of my wedding my parents were scrambling trying to find money next time they should tell people!

I have only positive things to say about working with Mary Catherine and the whole Cuisine America Team. From the first contact to eating the plates her staff made for my husband and I to take home, the whole experience has been fabulous. It was definitely worth a couple trips out to Elgin from Chicago to meet Mary Catherine in person, do a tasting, and work out the details. She had so many great ideas and her ample experience in wedding catering and planning help me sort out some of my own details that I was stuck on (menu for each person vs. one per table, favor ideas, etc). Now on to the food. The food was delicious, which my husband and I knew it would be. We loved the food we tried at the tasting and the Cuisine America chef worked with us to help develop a unique menu. All of my guests, the DJ, the photographer, and the venue staff came up to me to tell me that it was the best wedding food they have ever had. If you pick Cuisine America, you will not be disappointed, from start to finish working with them was a dream.

Cuisine America was great! We had a tasting of the food to see how it was and the quality and deliciousness blew us away. Mary Catherine and her husband were fantastic to work with. They were flexible, accommodating, and gave us a lot of great suggestions. You can tell they have had a lot of experience. They were extremely professional and did their best to make sure that everything ran smoothly - and it did! Everyone was raving about how fluid the whole night ran. This would not have been possible without Mary Catherine and the Cuisine America staff. They were able to answer every one of our questions and/or concerns and they helped us think about situations that we didn't even know could arise. We had around 140 people at the wedding and we decided to do family style salad/homemade dressings/homemade breads, and then an entree buffet. We were a little skeptical at first about how it would go since all of the buffets that we've ever been to take a long time to get through...but Cuisine America had everyone through within 15-20 minutes!! The event could not have been better. We would highly recommend Cuisine America to everyone!!

As we began plans for our daughter's May, 2014 wedding, like everyone else I started asking friends, family-everyone-for recommendations. When it came to catering, Cuisine America was the ONLY name I kept hearing over and over. I first met with Mary Catherine myself, as well as calling several other places... It was immediately clear to me that Cuisine America would be one of my choices. It was not my wedding, however, so I returned to see Mary Catherine with my daughter and son-in-law. She, once again, took time to explain so many things to us all. The three of us came away from that meeting with a deposit down and a feeling of certainty. A few months later, after the tasting, we knew we had made the right choice-Jim is an amazing chef !

She gave us many options for pricing-things we could do to save us money, things she had available that would not need to be rented. I appreciated her honesty, flexibility, and concern for our budget. As time went on, we ended up having cuisine America cater both the wedding as well as the rehearsal dinner! In both cases the food was scrumptious, with tons left over-no one went away hungry. I want the reader to know that Cuisine America is professional, amazing at what they do, and to be trusted. I had not one concern during the entire rehearsal and wedding day-I didn't even go check on the kitchen, so certain was I that things were being handled! And indeed they were. Every single guest we spoke to-and I am not exaggerating-mentioned how delicious the food was!

I will whole heartedly recommend CA (and already have!) to any and all, and will use them again if we ever ended a caterer!

Mary Catherine and her staff were very professional and reliable. They took care of place cards, favors and all decor except the flowers. The room looked just beautiful. The food was very good, and we had several people tell us it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. We had a brunch with lots of choices, including broccoli cheddar quiche, roast sirloin of beef and homemade breads. The chef carved a gorgeous watermelon bowl and filled it with fresh berries. The staff were very efficient and not intrusive. The cost was very reasonable for the quality and variety of food.

Cuisine America did a wonderful job on my wedding day. The food was wonderful and my guests were extremely happy with everything. My caterer also helped me find my florist and she gave me wonderful suggestions on how to deal with the stress of planning a wedding.

They can cook amazing food! Anything they make is delicious! Their servers for the event were top-notch. Some of the frantic feelings in planning could have been avoided if they responded to calls or e-mails better. Trust them in terms of their recommendations for your cake vendor; but plan time to make your own centerpieces.

Working with Mary Catherine for our reception was a dream! She really knew her stuff and I felt safe letting her run the show on our big day. The food was huge portions and the guests raved about how good the food was! She did everything I requested for the design and layout of the rooms and tables, and made everything so beautiful. Working with Cuisine America could not have been better for us!

Let me start by saying the food was great, and day of service was good. My major issues with Cuisine America came in all of the planning stages. There would be long stretches when I wouldn't hear anything. Sometimes they were on vacation and had left no indication on the voice mail or email that they would be gone for more than 3 days. When I did hear back there would be no progress. We had some major communication breakdown. The chef was looking for us to give him specific recipes and we were looking for him to put a 'meal' together for us. We were stuck in this loop for about 2 and a half months. We lived in Oregon at the time and it was often hard to get a hold of someone within Cuisine America. I would set clear expectations when working with Cuisine America. If you do you will be satisfied, if not, you'll most likely end up like me, satisfied in the end, but miserable in the process.
