Juliana and her incredible team catered my daughter's wedding this past Saturday. The event was perfect from beginning to end. The food was excellent, the venue decorated exactly the way we wanted, and the professionalism of her staff was outstanding. Everyone commented on what a great a time they had. Most importantly, we had a very happy bride and groom, and I thank Cocina Fusion for making that happen.
My wife just said it: We cannot IMAGINE another caterer that would have given such AMAZING cuisine and service at a price that is literally half of what other caterers charge. They are ALL of the professionalism at a price that makes sense. Juliana is charismatic, warm and ready to work with you and her husband is a master chef. We bombarded Juliana with a million crazy questions and she patiently responded to each one within an hour tops, and that was when she was out of the country. She's awesome. They're awesome. They really went out of their way to make sure we had nothing to worry about on our wedding day. We cannot give them a high enough recommendation.

You are an amazing couple! Best wishes!
Julianna is able to work with anyone and create a beautiful event. We were on a super tight budget and thought that having a wedding at the venue we wanted would be impossible. Julianna went above and beyond to make our reception happen at a super affordable price. And the food was great!! We really enjoyed the empanadas and meatballs! We're so grateful that we were able to work with Julianna and the team at CocIna Fusion.
I was completely wow'd by Juliana and the entire staff of Cucina Fusion. All of our friends and family are still raving about the food!! Everything was handled professionally and cooked to perfection. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone getting married in the Chicagoland area. She even opened her kitchen to have my good friend (and pastry chef) bake our wedding cake Friday before the wedding. I can't say enough about the quality and tastiness of the food. (yup, tastiness.)
I have only nice things to say about Juliana and Anaxi and our whole experience with Cocina Fusion. We planned our wedding from out of town, and Juliana was incredible about emailing. When we finally met, Juliana greeted us with hugs and a big smile.
Everything at the wedding reception went perfectly. We had some strange set up requests, and Juliana and her staff made sure everything was set beautifully before our guests arrived.
Chef Anaxi created a beautiful and delicious meal. Our guests are still raving about how delicious his pork was! My wife and I have both worked in the catering and events field for a number of years, and I have never met caterers more full of passion for their work. If I ever need a caterer for another event in Chicago, Cocina Fusion is the very company I will call.

Charles and Katherine,
Thanks so much for taking the time to review my business. It's special since we only got to meet each other a day before the wedding and didn't have much time to get to now you. Best wishes!
I cannot thank Juliana and Anaxi enough for the amazing food that they catered at our Wedding this past September 28th, 2012. Every single guest at our wedding still cant stop talking about how amazing the food was and how accommodating and super friendly they were to everyone when it also came to specific food requests. They not only provided us with excellent food which consisted of stuffed chicken breast with spinach and cheese with an amazing chipotle sauce, tender slices of steak with an amazing pasilla sauce, tilapia fish, arroz con gandules and grilled vegetables!, they also helped with all our table setup, they set up our sweet table, made sure everything was all set and ready to be wow'ed by our guests.
I am beyond thankful to their whole crew for an excellent *****5 star service! I will definitely do business with them over and over again.
Completely made my wedding day! I have had several of my guests say this was the best wedding food they have had. Staff was so helpful throughout the process. Choosing Cocina Fusion was the best decision we made.
Cocina fusion was the caterer for our wedding on September 2, 2012. Juliana and her husband (the chef) were so pleasant, fun, and professional to work with, which made my wedding planning experience a wonderful one. The price was very reasonable and the food was so delicious. The package deal they had was unbeatable and it really simplified our planning process like a one-stop shop; they provided linen, napkins, and plates, silverware, etc . We were just thrilled to have found a caterer in Chicago that was not over priced yet provided quality service and food. Juliana was always quick to responds to our requests/questions and very accommodating. One thing I remembered that made her stand her out from other caterers is she was so nice that she put a temporary hold on the date for me before I could rush to give her our deposit. Cocina fusion makes everything simple and fun for their clients. Our guests enjoyed the food very much just like we did. I would recommend them to anyone planning a wedding or a major event. I would definitely use them for my other big parties.
VERY REASONABLE AND PATIENT TO CLIENT NEEDS
Cocina Fusión not just another caterer, but a fresh approach to culinary art & services.
Finally, a fresh twist to catering! Behind us stand over 20 years of experience on the food and beverage scene; from high end hotels and traditional catering companies, to some of the most exclusive
restaurants and kitchens in Chicago.
All these years of experience summed up when our founder “Chef Anaxi” realized the industry was standardized and stagnant, so he thrived for new culinary perspectives. Following his culinary passion “Chef Anaxi” decided to rely on his own Latin roots and committed to bring Hispanic flavors out of the shadows. Our Chef developed a new spectrum of flavors, by twisting our all time favorite meals, with those traditional spices and cooking techniques from Latin America.
This resulted in a “Culinary Fusion”, an amazing profile of flavors, colors, fragrance and textures that blend together as notes do in a symphonic master piece. Our recipe for success resides on our commitment to following a consistent recipe: uncompromising personalized attention to quality and detail, combined with the finest fresh food available and stunning presentational skills. Also, Lots of sizzle and some personal flair from the chef Anaxi.
