Zili's Food was really good, we had the grand buffet. We only had one issue with one of the bar tenders not wanting to serve the bride as there was a mix up with communication. The bar tenders were told that both the Bride and Groom weren't able to drink alcohol when it should have been only the Groom. Once I talked to the manager that was on staff that night everything was taken care of. Everything else was really good!

Zilli Hospitality Group will make even your rehearsal dinner an event to be talked about weeks after the event. The rehearsal dinner they catered for my son's wedding was out of this world! Every detail was perfect - food, linens, decor, station set up, service...the food was amazing, the staff was so wonderful and accommodating, and I didn't have to worry about a thing going wrong! I can't wait to use Zilli's again for my next event! Thank you to everyone from Steph, Angie, Katie, Beth, Cheyenne, Todd B, Virginia, Lisa, Bethany and the culinary team who made the awesome food...I can't thank you enough! We also used Adorn, the floral division of Zilli Hospitality Group for the wedding floral - all I can say is WOW! Everything was absolutely beautiful! Katie and Beth did an amazing job and the church and reception venue looked exactly as we had planned.

Zilli was phenomenal to work with. For my venue, I had to use Zilli for the bar services, but they made the cost for the food so competitive that we wanted to move forward with them for everything. Our wedding event planners were fantastic. I loved working with Jamie and Katy. They always got back to me usually the same day when I had questions and when I went to a wrong location for a meeting, they reorganized their schedule to come to me. My only thing I would have changed is that the girls I was working with weren't my day of event manager and I would have loved to meet them before hand, but the day of was incredibly smooth. We loved the tasting experience and they made it feel very special and any worries I had about the food were quickly gone. They were overall a great vendor and would use them again.

We had to go through Zilli's for bar services due to our reception venue contract. Because of this, we thought it would be good to use their caterer services. We did a food tasting and it was very subpar. Appetizers unimpressive. Steak and fish were both extremely overcooked, sauce on the salmon was like a heavy steak sauce. Needless to say, we went with another caterer. Did not feel they could give us good quality food for over 100 people if they couldn't deliver for 4.
We did go through bar services and were pleased that they could offer us my husband's favorite beer and a mead that they didn't usually offer for an extra fee. However, we found out 2 weeks before the wedding of an extra per person charge for glassware (I read very small fine print in the final contract- was not told)- I thought this was extremely untasteful. If I hadn't read it, I would have walked into a very formal wedding with plastic glasses. And of course had to pay extra $ that I did not budget for.

My fiancé and I are in the process of booking Zilli and we went to a tasting just a few days ago. The food was fantastic and they helped us pick the food the way we wanted it. Another great thing about Zilli is a lot is included in their prices so it ends up being even more affordable. We're excited to continue the process with Zilli and have them a part of our wedding day.

ps. The desserts we tried were delicious! We definitely went back for seconds and we know our guests will too!

My husband and I got married at the Milwaukee County War Memorial Center. They have a pre-approved catering list, and we did not know where to start! We did our research and looked at reviews, and narrowed it down to two caterers: one being Zilli. We attended our taste consultation by Zilli, and it was delicious. The food blew us out of the water. Mrs. Paula was also very personable and listened to all of our concerns. They were willing to work with our ethnic dishes, and our budget. All of this, and their ability to work with our contract (hubby is in the military and we needed to work out something in case of a deployment), made us choose Zilli. The day of the wedding, everything was set up perfectly. The coordinator of the day introduced herself, and made sure the day ran smoothly. As for the the food, we got nothing but compliments on the food. Our menu for the night consisted of Hawaiian BBQ, Mac N Cheese, Pasta, Bread etc. It was absolutely delicious. Overall, we highly recommend Zilli.

My husband and I enjoyed working with our Zilli event designer, Lori, from the moment we met her at the food tasting. She even gave us the absolutely phenomenal butternut squash risotto at no extra cost when it usually is extra. A lot of our wedding guests are still raving about the risotto to this day. Lori and her assistant Margaret worked with us to help make sure our day goes smoothly, down to the little details. There were a few instances where I thought Margaret was a bit unprofessional which I did not appreciate at the time. However, the scrumptious food and the beautiful presentation of the food on our wedding day more than made up for it because everything was perfect!
