My expectations for wedding food is always low however I was blown away by the food from Zilli. We had an outdoor dinner with chilly temps and all anyone could talk about was how great the food was and how everything was so warm. While the event went well, I did have some struggles with them during planning. They were often very slow to respond and when they did, answers were a little unclear or only a portion of my questions were answered. Ultimately they executed a great event but I wish leading up to it went smoother

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!

Unfortunately I do not have great things to report. Zilli did my daughters wedding planning. Two weeks before the wedding we were advised that venue had fallen through. There was no time to postpone the wedding or make alternate plans, We had to trust Zilli when they said they would make it just as beautiful. Many promises were made regarding use of the alternate last minute venue, These promises were not kept. The wedding decor etc was mediocre at best, things as simple as a memory table for loved ones that had passed were omitted, or should I say were left at the DJ stand which was staged behind curtained off area away from the guests tables. Electrical cords with pink lighting were taped to the floor around the curtained off area. Many tripped over these cords, especially the kids when the tried to enter the area to dance. The food from the caterer was excellent. That is the only positive thing I can report

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.

Zilli was the most responsive out of any catering companies we talked to. We did not expect to go with a higher end catering company, but the rest of them paled in comparison and Zilli was an easy choice. From first contact through the event, they stayed in touch and answered any questions. They were also flexible in making adjustments. For us, it was worth a slightly higher price not to be worrying about service. The food is also amazing - we got nothing but compliments on its tastiness. Our only complaint with Zilli is that one of our salads was screwed up. We asked to substitute a caprese salad, which they said was not problem, and we specifically had on the contract the ingredients we wanted in the salad. On the wedding day, there were multiple additions, including things I would not eat. If they had to put fillers in the salad, they should have talked to us first. Otherwise, they are great.

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.

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!

Zilli Hospitality Group was a pleasure to work with! For our wedding reception, we knew that we wanted to work with a vendor that would offer several services and ZHG fit the bill -- they provided us with the venue, tables, linens, silverware, catering and a day-of coordinator for the reception! They also had a lot of connections to floral and DJ service providers, although we did not use them. As far as the staff, Candy and Roxann were great points of contact to us throughout the planning process, often making time to meet with us when we were in town (we live in the Chicago area). In some instances, their email responsiveness could have been quicker, but they are a very busy team and they always made sure to reply within a few days. On the day of the wedding, we could not have been happier with ZHG's food, drinks and service. All of the staff (day-of coordinator, servers, bartenders) were polite and accommodating, even when one of our guests had been rude to one of the servers (so embarassing!). We've heard from multiple guests that ours was the best wedding they had ever been to, and we know that ZHG played a big part in that!

We could not have been happier with Zilli! We used them for the dinner at our wedding reception at the Riviera in Lake Geneva. They were affordable and quite responsive throughout the entire process. Being from Chicago, we didn't know exactly what to expect with the Riviera's limited catering options. But Zilli more than exceeded our expectations. The salad and entree at the wedding were actually better than what we tried at the tasting! (When does that happen?!) And we got a lot of complements on the food from our guests. (Note that Zilli can bring in all the linens, plates, glassware, silverware, etc. to the Riviera too, so you can get pretty much everything from one vendor. That really made things easier. The only thing they don't do is cake, but they recommended Lakeland Bakery to us, which was wonderful!) If you are using the Riviera for your venue, we couldn't recommend Paula and her team any more. You won't be disappointed.
