We couldn't have asked for a better caterer for our wedding!! Chris and his team went above and beyond to make sure our wedding reception went smoothly. My fiance and I planned our wedding from out of town, and Chris was so responsive whenever we had any questions. They are probably the best caterer for an affordable price and they even allowed us to bring in outside food since my fiance and I wanted to make sure our Korean and Chinese backgrounds were also reflected in the food. During cocktail hour and dinner, they were always bringing out food and drinks promptly, and Chris himself made sure we were comfortable throughout the reception. Chris was so open to our vision of what we wanted our signature cocktails and food to be, and so easy to work with. D'absolute was one of the best decisions of our wedding!!

D'absolute catered our wedding at The Newberry Library on 5/24/14 and did an absolutely AMAZING job. We first met we Chris early on who took our food vision and created an absolutely delicious menu! We had many comments from our guests about how great our food was. The whole team was a breeze to work with - Chris, Natalie and Mena especially. Natalie specifically was present for the entire event and made sure everything went off without a hitch. I also really liked how she always made sure my husband and I were eating and drinking. The staff in general was fantastic and even loaded up our car with the things we needed to take home at the end of the night.

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day and D'absolute is in large part to thank for that! We recommend them to everyone!!

Hands down my favorite of all my vendors! Chris and Nathalie are simply fantastic. First, not only was the food amazing at the tasting, it was just as amazing at the actual wedding (when they were cooking for 200 not 2). They made sure everything was just as we wanted it and their wait staff was just awesome. Our venue was 2 floors and they floated throughout the whole space with the apps and late night snacks. Plus, whenever we wanted to make a change or ask a question, Chris and Nathalie were so on top of things and always responded right away. On top of amazing food they really provide great service and make you feel like your wedding is the only one that matters to them. I've heard friends' horror stories over difficult caterers they've used and I can say that I never once had a stressful moment with these two- simply fantastic all around!

It took only two minutes for us to fall in love with D'Absolute. My parents drove down on a Friday from out of state where Chris prepared an private tasting for us. Needless to say we wrote a check that night without doing any other tastings. He took care of us from that point on. In the months leading up Chris did tweaks to the menu and the head count. When the big day arrived the food and the services they provided were amazing! My favorite option on our menu was the seasonal pear salad but my guests have commented to me on how they loved the entire meal as well as the appetizers. I also had guests approach me on how the team went out of their way to service the children first and provide them with a special more kid friendly dinner options. I had no idea this was going to happen and was so grateful for the extra attention to detail that Chris and the D ’Absolute team paid towards my guests. Throughout the night their hard work, professionalism, and responsiveness was very evident to me and my guests. D'Absolute did a remarkable job from start to finish! We highly recommend them for any event!!

There are no words that come to mind that I can use to accurately describe how fantastic Chris with D'Absolute is. The entire menu was delicious, the service was impeccable, the staff was friendly and attentive. And he helped assure that everything flowed seamlessly.

D'Absolute was the exclusive preferred caterer for my venue. I was a little anxious when I felt I was somewhat forced to use them. But I am so happy I was pointed in their direction! The food they created for my wedding was incredible. Their staff was so sweet and really brought a positive energy to their job. (I myself am a server at a restaurant, so I know it's not always easy to be excited to serve people food on a Saturday night, but I have to send a shout out to them for being both professional and enthusiastic). We took a short bus ride away to take photos between the ceremony and reception, so they even set up some food and drinks for us on the bus before we left so we didn't miss any of our appetizers. The food was delicious and creative - I was at a wedding two weeks later and one of the guests, who was also at ours, was still talking about the bacon wrapped dates and the goat cheese grape lollipops (Now, I don't endorse discussing other wedding details at someone's wedding, but I secretly enjoyed the compliment).

During and after the wedding, everyone said how amazing the food was and that they wanted some more. Everything from the food to the setup was absolutely perfect! Chris, the most awesome event manager, was super nice and easy to work with. You can tell that he's done this so many times that he knows all the details. Yet he still manages to make you feel like you are the only event that matters. Thanks to D'Absolute, everything came together flawlessly.

Our reception was at Room 1520. Chris and D'Absolute made our planning easy. The meals and hor dourves were inline with our taste. I have many family members with allergies and he was accommodating for them as well. The tasting night was so much fun and we got to know Chris really well in that environment at his office. We left there with full stomachs and full of ideas. He had great suggestions for us to make it top notch and stay in our budget.

He drew up the floor plan and had a great vision of how the room would work best for all our needs. And he worked great with the other vendors. Our guests have been raving about the food, bar service and dessert that D'Aboslute provided. On top of that we rented all our tables, linens and chairs through him. The room looked awesome and everything came together great.

Now I just need to plan another party so I can work with him again!
