I cannot say enough about how awesome Food Evolution is! From our tasting on, it was clear that Food Evolution is anything but a standard wedding caterer. They let us taste our food choices, plus had some extra suggested items to try, including what ended up being our signature cocktail! Their food choices are anything but the standard wedding caterer fare. Our personal favorites were the mini taco/mini margarita and mini chicken pot pie appetizers, and squash soup served in a hollowed-out squash. The food the day of the wedding tasted just as good as at our tasting. And all of our guests were just raving about the food. They also made mini pumpkin and apple pies for our dessert and supplied all of our s'mores-making supplies! Sue and her team were beyond helpful! And the food was memorable in the best way possible!

One word to describe working with Sue at Food Evolution is ‘trustworthy.’ From beginning to end I had all the confidence in the world that Sue was leading us in the right direction. That was especially important as we were planning our Chicago wedding from Connecticut. Sue and her team were great with our budget too. They really listened to us when we told them of our overall vision. Sue is also very connected to the area, so she was able to lead us to other great vendors.


As wannabe foodies, Food Evolution was the perfect caterer for us. So many choices, and they are very flexible with their menu. Everything we ate the night of our wedding was amazing, and we got a lot of compliments on the food as well. The bulgogi tacos with mini patron margaritas during cocktail hour were a huge hit.


We got married at the Harold Washington Library, so all of the food, tables, linens, ect had to be brought in and taken away (at the end of the night). No issues there either. We would highly recommend Food Evolution.

We hired Food Evolution to cater our Chicago wedding on June 4, 2016. They were outstanding! Yes, a bit expensive, but we found their price to be similar to other caterers in the area. Their tasting is really what sold us; they went above and beyond. The food was wonderful, so many of our guests made comments about how it was some of the best food they've ever had at a wedding. Sue & Tammy at Food Evolution really put our worries to rest, and their staff seemed to do a wonderful job. I would highly recommend!

Food Evolution was a preferred vendor at Salvage One that we used for our wedding caterer. They were very responsive to all of my emails and my correspondence with Tammy was of the utmost professionalism. I really enjoyed working with her.

When sitting down with Sue to discuss our menu, we chose (6) appetizers, a first course salad and burgers for the main course. The tasting session that we did was a huge help to determine the food selection, the presentation of the dishes, and the selection of the serving plates/glassware/etc. We had a specific vision for the meal and we loved how everything came together from an aesthetic perspective to compliment the space.

Also, one of my guests had a very specific dietary request so I had her reach out to Tammy directly to discuss. They were so accommodating to my friends needs and I really appreciated that. My friend sent me a note after with glowing praise of our caterer.

On the day of the wedding, the staff and service was amazing. We had cheese/fruit and drinks waiting for us in the bridal suite when we arrived at the venue and then they brought up all the appetizers so that we could sample all the food and have a celebratory toast with the bridal party prior to joining the cocktail hour. Both were really nice touches.
We received rave reviews of the appetizers and our guests just loved the mini margaritas with the Korean tacos (so yummy). I think the apps were my favorite part of the meal. Unfortunately, the presentation of the main course did not live up to our expectations and didn’t line up to what we had seen presented during our tasting so we were a bit disappointed by that.

Overall though, we had a very enjoyable experience working with and planning our wedding menu with Tammy and Sue.

We could have not have been happier with the outcome of our wedding this past weekend that was catered by Food Evolution. My husband and I wanted fall comfort food stations and the presentation and taste of the food was outstanding. The service was seamless! We received so many compliments throughout the night.

We worked with Sue, who I can't imagine not having on our day. She was conscious of our dollars, and honest but also had great input on how to make the day 100% fabulous.

Overall the service and food truly exceeded our expectations.

We had the best experience with Food Evolution!!! Our reception venue had a list of preferred catering vendors so we naturally performed our due diligence on all of them and narrowed it down to about 6 to have initial discussions with and from then scheduled tastings with 4 caterers. From the very first conversation I had with Sue I felt totally comfortable and that she had our best interest in mind she suggested talking to other caterers and gave me some pointers about wedding planning I had never thought of (hadn't done this before!). Tammy and Sue were so responsive and would get back to me quickly with any questions I had big or small (and I had a lot). I never once doubted the level of service we would get from Food Evolution. After our initial discussions we has scheduled our tasting, Food Evolution was our 3rd of 4 tastings so we had an idea of what we liked and didn't like from other vendors. From the moment we walked in and I met Sue in person for the first time she was so caring and knowledgeable she was with us every step of the way, pretty sure she almost cried when I told them our engagement story. Just shows how involved they are and invested in the success of your wedding. The food at the tasting was AMAZING!!!!! There was just more heart and soul put into their presentation, delivery and food than we felt at any other vendor. We had a few favorites ,the mini tacos and margaritas (a HUGE hit), the soup in the apple (perfect for a fall wedding). Anyway, Food Evolution was definitely the front runner after our tastings, the food was spectacular and most importantly, we LOVED the people!!!

Our experience with Food Evolution started out very well. Our tasting was great. The food tasted good and they has some unique, fun ideas that we hadn't seen anywhere else. They seemed flexible and we liked that they were customizable to suit our needs. Everything seemed to go downhill after we signed our contract. Their email response time was significantly slower than any of our other vendors and sometimes we would receive responses that only partially answered our questions. We chose Food Evolution specifically because Sue GUARANTEED us that either she or Jen would be present on the day of our wedding to make sure that everything ran smoothly. In fact, she assured me that she didn't see any reason why she herself wouldn't be there. Fast forward to the day of our wedding when a woman that I had never met before introduced herself to me as the manager and informed me that neither Sue nor Jen would be able to make it. This is unfathomable to me considering Sue promised that this exact situation would never happen.

I am giving Food Evolution 3 stars because the food was good, the drinks were good and the staff did a good job on the day of the wedding. I am shocked, however, by Sue's lack of professionalism. She never reached out to me to let me know that she wouldn't be at our wedding (apparently she was at another wedding) and she NEVER reached out to me afterwards to apologize. The dessert table was disappointing aside from the "homemade" cupcakes that would purchased from Sweet Mandy B's. Overall I am torn over whether or not I would recommend to a friend.
