Loved having my June 2018 Wedding here! The space is so beautiful - really speaks for itself allowing us to not have to over do with the decor. I was an out of state bride (Lincoln though is Home) and working with Starr, mostly virtually, was so easy. Then when I was in town she always allowed me to visit so we could plan decor. I ended up doing my ceremony in the same space and the team was amazing re-staging for the reception. The food was good, the staff was nice and again the space is just so pretty-- and a great location especially having a lot of out of town guests. Close to hotels and bars/restaurants for guests to enjoy during their visit. The minor things are there are some dings on the walls and some of the carpet is worn and threads coming loose but again over all I had a great experience and so did my guests! More...

We used Chez Hay for business purposes and we were wowed on every level. The prompt courteous communication, the professional and quick communication between the event staff, the most important - food - was more than amazing. We were able to "wow" our guests by using Chez Hay. I highly recommend them for any of your catering needs! We have found our "go to" catering company! Thank you so much Chez Hay for taking such great care of us! More...

Star and Sean are so awesome to work with. They were able to execute a complicated catering project for me without killing me. Their positive attitude and desire for excellence makes them my top choice for caterers in Lincoln. And, the food is fantastic and beautifully creative!! More...

I've been working with Chez Hay for several years. I recently had a art show in space. Amazing communication! Working with the staff was great. My photography show was based on my trip to Cuba. Chez Hay made a cuba theme for the guest and it was perfect. I would highly recommend them for any event needs. Corey More...

Beautiful place!! The Brick is Gorgeous. Very Elegant. The reason for the minus star... In the beginning of the party - the staff was not at the bar, they continued to roam around. One was outside smoking, and sitting with a guy that was trying to get money from people and claimed her as his wife and that they didn't have any money - but they had enough money for cigerettes. And the plates to eat off of were the size of my hand. People were going back for seconds because there was no room to put much food on their plates. It was the size of a "dessert" plate. More...

Had Chez Hay cater an offsite event, and had a great experience. Food delivery and clean up ran like clockwork, and everything looked great. My guests gave nothing but compliments on the food!! Highly recommend using them for your next event! More...

I've been at Chez Hay for company parties, wedding receptions and fundraisers. Every time I have been here I've had an exceptional experience! Sean and Starr have a great place with delicious food, friendly staff and a clean venue! Sean and Starr are extremely accommodating and very professional! I'd recommend Chez Hay to anyone who has an upcoming event! More...

My wife and I recently had our wedding reception at Chez Hay and it was everything we dreamed it would be. Nicole was amazing to work with and she was very knowledgeable about every aspect of the event. Nicole made sure that we felt confident and comfortable with all of our choices for food, drink, and décor. We had many comments about how good the food was and the space was plenty big enough to accommodate all of our guests. Plus, the space is beautiful! Can't say enough good things about this venue.

We had our wedding at Chez Hay on April 2nd 2016. (Sorry Starr for my late review! I feel awful! You did an amazing job, I am just the post wedding procrastinator here, lol! ) Chez Hay is a beautiful place for a wedding! The large windows and exposed brick creates a warm atmosphere. Starr is the best to work with! Starr, you ROCK and have a great business going on there :) The food is OUTSTANDING! Our guests made so many compliments on how the food was so delicious!! Starr you helped us so much and made our wedding AMAZING, just what we imagined! Thank You Starr! And Thank You to all the Chez Hay workers! :) More...

I recently attended a wedding at Chez Hay Catering's event space in downtown Lincoln. The space itself was clean and modern. Being on the second floor, there are nice views of the street life below. The wedding I attended was pretty intimate, with about 40 guests. Chez Hay's space was perfect for a group this size.The staff set up and broke down the space with ease, transforming it from wedding chapel to buffet to dance floor, all the while the bartender kept the drinks flowing. The food itself was great -- spinach salad, potatoes, green beans, and mixed vegetable with tofu -- all vegan. For the meat eaters, there was a roast and turkey breast to chomp on as an entree.All in all, I really enjoyed my time at Chez Hay. Definitely a great option if you're looking to throw a private event, catering included, in Lincoln. More...

We loved having our reception at Chez Hay! They were so accommodating and let us set everything the Friday before because the venue wasn't booked! Biggest help EVER. The food was amazing, so so many of our family and friends commented on it! They always respond to all of your crazy email requests and they respond quickly!! I would recommend the space to anyone it is so versatile and can be dressed up or down to suit any reception! We loved Everything about it and couldn't be happier! Thank you Chez Hay!!! More...

A year and half later and everyone is still ranting and raving about the food at my reception. It was absolutely wonderful! The space was beautiful, I love the lighting and the brick walls. There were some small details I would have changed the night of my wedding, but not enough to affect my rating. More...

We had my younger brother's rehearsal dinner here last summer. It was a big night for our family with lots of out-of-town guests and last minute details. Our head count shifted throughout the day, the florist had a near disaster, my table decorations almost totally failed, but no matter how chaotic things got, the staff at Chez Hay was accommodating and gracious. I think we ended up with 80 people that night and everything went off without a hitch. The food was really really tasty and the space itself was perfect---not too loud and spacious enough that all the little kids could run around without being in the way. Thank you so so much for helping make our family's big night so perfect! More...

I attend a lot of events at the University of Nebraska and have had great experiences with Chez Hay's catering each time. I also attended a wedding at their banquet space earlier this summer - the space looked amazing and the food was all phenomenal ! I can't wait for the next time I get the opportunity to have their food! More...

We have had Chez Hay cater a couple of events for us. The first was our wedding. Chez Hay did a great job of accommodating our  requests, including coming up with their own version of a German dish, Currywurst. We recently had Chez Hay cater my husband's 40th birthday party. We ordered the 6 appetizer option for 14 people. Each and every item we ordered was absolutely delicious, and the best part--we have a ton of leftovers!Our menu was: Currywurst (created especially for us by Chez Hay), Duck Skewers, Balsamic Brie Turnovers (These are sooo good!), Tofu with Coconut Red Curry Sauce (really yummy vegan/vegetarian dish), Roast beef sandwiches (beef was perfectly cooked medium rare), Saffron Shrimp with Raspberry BBQ Sauce (great saffron flavor!).Chez Hay are very easy to work with and Wendy has impeccable customer service skills. I would recommend Chez Hay to anyone that is looking to cater any type of event, but especially a wedding or high-end celebration. More...

Chez Hay is by far the best caterer in the Lincoln/Omaha area. The food is delectable, the service is outstanding and the personnel is excellent to work with. If you are looking for a banquet space, they have a great modern urban loft in downtown Lincoln that is excellent for weddings, tailgate parties, business meetings etc.As for Ingrid's response, I've personally worked with the owner numerous times and find her very pleasant and professional. I highly recommend Chez Hay. More...

I am amazed at the negative comments in the previous review! The owner of this amazing business is an honest, fair, and intelligent business woman, who's main concern is pleasing her clients. I have used her catering services for corporate lunches, holiday parties, and private events over the last several years and have always been completely satisfied. I have also been a guest at several events where her food and staff were used and have NEVER had a less than wonderful experience...in fact, I carry her business cards with me and pass them out all the time! If I did not firmly believe in the exceptional level of food and service that is always provided by Chez Hay Catering and the owner, I would not continue to use their services or recommend them! Keep up the good work Chez Hay and I look forward to our next event!!! More...

My husband and I chose the 'unconventional' wedding route when we got married.  A year after having a very small, short ceremony here in Maryland, we headed over to Nebraska to celebrate with a large group of our friends and family that otherwise would not have been able to party with us had we decided to go with the traditional wedding.  Enter Chez Hay, the catering company and banquet space located in downtown Lincoln.We wanted a place that would still look awesome with minimal decoration, and this spot fit the bill.    It's somewhat modern, with brick walls and hardwood floors, plenty of room to accommodate up to 260 people and a full service bar (woohoo!).  Most of the employees were helpful when we came in early to set up, but the owner herself seemed a bit cold....I don't know if she was having a bad day or what, but I don't remember hearing more than two words come out of her mouth the whole day we were there.In addition to using the banquet area, we took advantage of their catering services.  The prices of the services are equivalent to any other company I've looked at, and the food was pretty good, however there seemed to be a small miscommunication on their part about how long the food was able to stay out for the guests.  The party started at 630, the food was set up by 7 and taken away by 9.  I don't know about you all, but that seemed a bit short to me...the problem was they hadn't invested in any sort of warming or cooling trays to keep the eats at a certain temperature...and if they had, well, they certainly didn't use them at our party.  I thought it was a bit ridiculous...people like to munch, you know?  And what kind of catering company doesn't put their food out on temp trays?  UGH...Other than that,  the bar service was fantastic, the bathrooms clean, and the location spectacular.  I'd definitely use them again, if I needed a space to host a party.

Chez Hay Catering Incorporated provides gourmet catering services to Lincoln. It is true gourmet food, carefully prepared with the finest and freshest ingredients for unique and memorable flavors. And Chex Hay does it successfully for large groups--that is an accomplishment! OMG, their food is exquisite. They have catered parties for my work place, and people go just to eat the food from Chez Hay (and no one wants to go to work parties!) AND every year, people at work ask for Chez Hay to cater the parties again and again. If you have a difficult business meeting and want to coax people to your point of view, feed them Chez Hay. If you want to give a party and have people rave about the food a year from now, get Chez Hay. My mouth waters just writing about it.PROS: Exquisite gourmet food and professional service. Memorable.
CONS:
