Very, very professional. We didn't hire a wedding planner for our small event at first - and eventually we decided we needed to - but Zilli was sufficiently organized that we almost got away with it. They made sure everything for the catering was properly organized a month before the event - including the schedule. Excellent food.

Overall, we were satisfied with Zilli's level of service. The food was good, the wait staff and bartenders were professional, and the coordinators were generally cooperative. Everything went smoothly on the day of the event, and we were very happy with it.

However, we had a very difficult time communicating with the coordinators. We had many phone calls, met in person a few times, and exchanged countless emails because we had a hard time getting them to understand what we wanted. We felt like it took 10 emails to communicate one idea, which was very frustrating. In the end, we were able to come to an understanding, but it was a very exhausting process.

Zilli is a very traditional company, and it was hard to get them to do things outside their standard wedding packages.

We did semi-sit down service with Zilli's for our February wedding and were so happy with our choice. They provided excellent options for added value because we were a winter wedding. It was also very convenient to be able to use them for both catering and floral. Our wedding guests raved about the food, with many proclaiming the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding and something they would have ordered again at a restaurant. Zilli's was also very willing to work with us on our preferred menu options and always willing to answer any questions. The day-off everything went off without a hitch and I would definitely pick them if I had to make the choice all over again.

Zilli Hospitality Group, specifically Angie Majewski did a phenomonal job catering our wedding reception. From the tasting, to the timeline of the night, to the food iitself; everything was perfect! Guests raved about the food. And I loved that they brought a platter of our hand passed appetizers to the groom and myself as soon as we sat down for dinner. Since we were tryin to talk to as many guests as possible during cocktail hour we didn't have the opportunity to catch many of the hand passed h'ords. Service was also excellent - there was a server at our table throughout each course checking to see how we were doing. I wish we could do our wedding all over again, just so I could enjoy the amazing food again! Great job Angie and team!!!

Zilli was very accomodating and had such a great selection of food. Our guests were all raving about how good everything was! I would definitely recommend them to any future couple. We got married at the Milwaukee Domes which was a beautiful venue-almost like a destination wedding in your back yard.

Our food was excellent, we had several guests who told us we had the best wedding food. Candy was wonderful to work with and was very flexible. I also thought the prices were extremely fair and there were no hidden costs. Only complaint is my MOH's suitcase was stolen from the venue during the reception and never recovered. I felt little effort was put forth to search for the suitcase which held several expensive items. Other than that hiccup, everything else was wonderful and I would work with Zilli again.

Angie is amazing to say the least! I was not the easiest bride to work with and she did it with grace. She was so flexible and so accommodating to all of my wants and needs throughout the wedding planning process. She was always available and worked very hard to help
My vision come to life. Knowing she was there on my wedding day made me so relieved. Everything went seamlessly and it was all do to her skill, organization and understanding of what I wanted on my wedding day. If I could plan my wedding again, I wouldn't do it without Angie!

If you're planning on having an open bar, do NOT book with Zilli. Despite the fact that we paid $70+ a person, the bar tenders were beyond horrible. They would only give every person one drink (even if an elderly husband was getting a glass of wine for his wife) and made insanely weak drinks VERY SLOWLY. There was a line all night, and even though we were reassured that there would be 3 bartenders, there were only 2 for most of the night. As the bride, I had to yell at the bar tenders multiple times for refusing to give my bridesmaids drinks when they were ordering for each other and we had to speak to the event planner five separate times about the long lines. If my husband and I were not around, the bar tenders were rude to our guests, and even made a few extremely inapprorate comments. Zilli was wonderful to work with throughout the planning process, and the food was pretty good, but the horrible bar experience nearly ruined the evening.

Our tasting was phenomenal! We had so many samples that we didn't need dinner afterwards! The setting was peaceful, intimate, and enjoyable. We got to meet our Chef and got all our questions answered! The food, food choices, and various package options are AMAZING! You can choose from sit-down, semi sit-down, or buffet. Kids 3 and under are free, and 4-20 receive a discount, since they cannot consume alcohol. They also offer various linens and china to make your day just what you envision it to be!

Ellen Zillis Catering was a massive disappointment. When we initially met with them, we were promised we would be working with one person throughout the whole process of planning our wedding. Having one contact person was part of the reason we choose to work with them. This proved to not be the case and soon began receiving communication from multiple people. This would have been fine; however, these multiple staff from Ellens were not communicating with each other, leading to us feeling as if we needed to babysit Ellen Zillis to ensure our day was what we hoped for. The day of our wedding, they missed meals for people with special diet concerns and missed chairs for guests. Better communication and personnel work may make Ellens more wedding friendly.

I was recommended to Zilli by a friend but was still a little unsure about the quality. I will say I've been pleasantly surprised with everything. Working with them is very easy, they even ordered a bunch of linens and set up mock tables to assist me in making my decision. Food is great and the appetizer selection is wonderful.

We're in the process of booking our wedding and catering was the first turn we made after we knew our location. Jamie has been excellent to work with. She only provides bumpers to our ideas when we need to understand limits of space or time. She runs right along with us and how we want it to look, feel and taste. The specialty menu they prepared for us is out of this world--and affordable. We found food is the way to make our wedding unique and our partner, Zilli agrees. It's been an outstanding experience.
