Two Chefs Are Better Than One
Wow. That's a good word to describe our experience with Two Chefs. It all began when my initial catering choice cancelled on me 3 months before the big day. My planner and I immediately started a new search and I came across Two Chefs are Better than One through the web. We had a quote for our eclectic menu within days and a tasting scheduled within a week. The tasting was INCREDIBLE!!! And we got to take home all the leftovers, which was insane. Our event coordinator, Alison, was so attentive and organized - she managed to get our rentals under control in no time. The day of the wedding was no exception. They took our station style menu and worked wonders. Everyone talked about how good the food was and gave so many compliments to the Chefs. The service staff was awesome - one server heard me make a comment about how I missed the cheese table during cocktail hour - next thing I knew I had a personal cheese and cracker plate at my dinner place setting. Unreal! I could go on an on - all you really need to know is that you will not be disappointed with Two Chefs!
In actuality, I would give them 6 stars in all of these categories, because that is how I feel about them. They were more than just caterers providing excellent food - they acted as my decorators, event coordinators and handled all the details of my wedding. I'm a DIY bride, so I made decorations for the event and then Alison (Two Chefs event manager) told me that if I dropped it off, they would handle all of the decorating. I don't know how they did it since they had less than 2 hours to prepare food and decorate, but somehow, they managed to take my decorations...change them and make them EVEN BETTER than I'd even imagined. I kept thinking, "wow, these are stunning."
They took care of the rentals for my entire reception and throughout the night, there was always someone by my side, reminding me when I needed to do things like change my dress (I changed twice) and cut the cake, if I wanted something to drink or eat. I still cannot get over how incredibly organized and efficient (and kind) these people were. And it extended to their staff as well. One staff member, who I unfortunately did not get to thank, knew my theme was paper cranes and folded me a paper crane out of table napkins. I was so touched, I wanted to take it home with me.
When we were taking photos and portraits during cocktail hour, Kathy was always bringing me and my wedding party hors d'oeuvres so that we could still partake in the delicious food. You know how they say that you never get to eat during your wedding? Maybe with other caterers, but not with these - they look for every chance to make sure you have food. Steve (head chef) brought us food to eat as soon as we sat down....and then brought us seconds when we were done. And they remembered minute details like someone in my wedding party had a food allergy, so when Kathy brought hors d'oeuvres, she brought 2 extra that my friend could eat. They even remembered that I didn't eat beef (I mentioned it once during the tasting months ago), so they brought me a plate of food without beef.
This caterer is just incredible, and you know it must be true since I just had my wedding a few days ago and yet here I am writing a review because I just could not get over what an amazing experience they created for me. The process was so easy and they took such good care of me and my guests - I have a feeling they will be talked about for years to come.
great food and service
Just want to say that Alison and Steve and their crew were amazing. With helping us decide the look fo the reception. To picking out appetizers and entres that weren't the usually wedding food was great. They were open to new ideas for food options. The worked with us and our financial situation. Til this day our guests are still raving and craving the food from the wedding. I think we need to find an excuse to have naohter big event to have them cater. AMAZING FOOD and SERVICE!!!!!!!!
