Ravi and Chic Chef catered my wedding (the first one ever at our venue.) Chic Chef came highly recommended by the event staff of the venue, and for good reason.  They were excellent! We had a great tasting, the staff was professional from start to finish, I never saw an empty glass at the reception, and received so many compliments about how delicious everything was.  I can confidently say, I will be hiring them again next time catering is needed!

Ravi came through when I wanted to cater Easter brunch for a wide variety of palets. He is easy to work with and was vigilant on his follow-up, arrived on time to set up, and the food was delicious. I would use Chic Chef Catering again. More...

Ravi and his team were amazing from initial contact to the day of and thereafter. We were planning a 300-350 person wedding with a variety of different palates and Chic Chef was able to knock every dish out of the park and make the menu truly unique to us and our special day. What set them apart from the numerous vendors we interviewed was there above and beyond customer service. They really wanted to make our day special and went out of their way to assist even in areas that were outside their scope or not typically a caterers responsibility. They worked seamlessly with our other vendors and made sure our VIP were always well taken care of. I can't recommend Chic Chef highly enough. Food, service, and experience were beyond our expectations. More...

Chic Chef Catering went above and beyond for our wedding/reception at Stan Mansion! Leading up to the event Ravi was always accessible and his staff the day of was definitely on point. Our guests raved out his appetizers, we had chicken lollipops, stuffed mushrooms and bruschetta. More...

Ravi and his team were out of this world - TOP NOTCH! They catered my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary party in the Chicago area. It was spectacular. Most importantly they were very quick with the planning assistance, the team on site was professional and friendly, and the food was FABULOUS. I highly recommend Ravi and his team for any catering need you may have. Thank you Chic Chef for an unforgettable event! More...

Ravi and his team are simply amazing. My father passed away and we wanted to have a simple but elegant funeral meal. We decided on having hors d’oeuvres both hot and cold, desserts and beverages on site at the funeral home. Everyone said it was simply fantastic! The team was wonderful on site. They took care of everything. We had to put this event together very quickly. Ravi responded so quickly and was very thorough with recommendations of exactly how much was needed what type of food would be best and even accommodated a custom request for dessert that my dad would’ve wanted. Ravi provided tables linens everything we needed.I would highly recommend Ravi and his team for any event you’re hosting. More...

Chic Chef Catering is a must! Ravi, the owner, was born to do catering. He is professional, punctual, and perfect for your event. Chic Chef has a huge variety of menu options. We hired them for a wedding and they came right when they said they would and came ready to go. Ravi himself came to the wedding to make sure everything was perfect, and it was. Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. Ravi has high expectations for his staff and he insists on giving you a good price. He knows the ins and outs of catering and he makes sure to treat you well. Ravi puts in 110%! He went above and beyond and plated all the salads, even though we asked for them to be in the buffet line. Ravi also brewed up coffee for us without us asking him to. He took time to tell us ways that we could save money, while throwing in some things to spruce up the dinner that we forgot about. Ravi and Chic Chef Catering get a 5/5 from us. We are so glad that we hired him for our event! More...

Awesome catering experience. Ravi recently catered my baby shower for approximately 25-30 people. The food was fresh tasting, delicious and most of all the service was IMPECCABLE! ! Ravi and his team (Anna) arrived on time, setup all the food, helped service the guests with their drinks, food, etc. All together, it was a top notch experience. We will most definitely use Ravi again!!! More...

Wow, where can we begin in explaining how incredible Ravi and all the staff at Chic Chef have been to us. To start, Ravi was extremely responsive when we first contacted him. We reached out and let him know how large our wedding would be and set up a time to meet up and talk about menu options. We were first very impressed by the selection Chic Chef offers, and equally impressed by Ravi's calm, friendly, and professional demeanor. We absolutely LOVED meeting with Ravi every time we sat down to talk about details for the wedding because we always left feeling completely confident and reassured that everything was going to turn out just as we hoped it would. He removed so much stress from our lives while planning the wedding, I don't think there are words to express fully how grateful we feel.

Now, the food. The food was outrageously good. We went for our tasting, and tried three chicken items and the veggie lasagna, several sides, and appetizers. I'm not exaggerating when I say everything was outstanding, it truly was, and my wife and I can be a little picky at times. Our only question was, "Can they really do THIS for about 200 people at our reception?" Answer: why yes, yes they could, and they did. People raved to us about the food the whole evening. It was restaurant quality, at the right temperature, and the service was above and beyond. All the staff present at the reception seemed genuinely happy, were cracking jokes with us and our family members, they were tending to each table in the most sincere way. Everyone had a fantastic time at our reception, and we have the staff at Chic Chef to thank.

Going into our wedding, we didn't feel strongly at all about catering. But coming away from this experience, we get teary eyed just thinking about the work that they clearly put into making our reception perfect. One last piece to demonstrate how they go above and beyond: We ordered table clothes through an associate of Ravi the owner, and when we set up the day before we accidentally doubled up the table cloths on too many tables and we turned out being two table cloths short for our buffet tables. When I realized this, I went to Ravi in a panic, apologizing, and in the middle of everything Ravi tells me in a complete calm, "Don't worry, I've got you, this is your big day and we will take care of everything." Well turns out he paid for an uber driver to go pick up fresh linens for our massive buffet tables on the spot and had everything set up to perfection well before the reception started. I don't know what else I can say, except that I recommend Chic Chef for any event you plan on catering. This is a company run by flat out good people. And we feel amazing that we chose them for our big day. Thanks to you guys from the bottom of our hearts.

I can't say enough praise for Chic Chef Catering. I hired them for my husband's 50th birthday party & our new office grand opening event. I went from getting the Hors d'oeuvres package-- to instead requesting servers -- and as my guest list grew, requesting 2 bartenders. What a party! The Chic Chef team handled everything & was so detail oriented. Our guests raved about the food. The staff was so friendly & fun! The bartenders were awesome. Ravi & his staff are top-notch. Highly professional. I was so lucky to find them & will definitely recommend them & use them again. I wouldn't use anyone else! More...

Ravi and his staff were excellent to work with. They add the extra bit of personal touch to your event that most other catering companies do not offer. Not the mention, the food was extraordinarily tasty, we did not stop hearing from all our guests how delicious the food was! They definitely go the extra mile to make sure you can be stress-free the day of your event and make sure all the guests are happily fed! Great to work with and will definitely use them again in the future! More...

I was a Maid of Honor in a wedding last weekend in Chicago, and was so impressed with the amazing food and service of Chic Chef Catering. There were so many amazing options to choose from at the buffet and the staff was super friendly. Everything was so flavorful and hot - those of you who have been to tons of weddings know why I mentioned that it is hot! Thanks Ravi and staff, you killed it! #theroseandtheharre More...

Chic provided a full service staff including waiters for a brunch in my home. It was elegant. My guess enjoyed the food, the service and the pampering they received from the staff. Amazing.

Next I recommended them for a block club BBQ in the neighborhood park. They provided excellent high quality food, commercial cookers, coolers for the drinks and a full service team to grill, serve our senior citizens and a clean up crew. We served over 200 families that day and it was seamless with Chic Chefs coordinating the day. Excellence!

Ravi and his team at Chic Chef were the caters for my daughter's wedding at The Haight in Elgin.   I couldn't be more pleased with the results. During our planning process, we interviewed and sampled several different caters.  The food at Chic Chef was clearly the best of the group.  Ravi and his Chef, Alex were terrific to work with.  They worked closely with us through multiple tastings to tailor our menu to our needs with an amazing family style Italian dinner.  During the event, his service and staff were outstanding and the food was excellent!  How often can you day that about food at a wedding?  Ravi was even kind enough to prepare a personal meal of his famous Indian chicken curry for me.  As anyone who has planned a wedding can attest to, the process can be stressful. Ravi's attention to detail and Alex's skill made our meal part of a perfect wedding. We HIGHLY recommend Chic Chef for your catering needs.  Try the curry, you'll love it! More...

We used Chic Chef Catering for our Christmas Day dinner for 24.  Ravi worked with us to plan a wonderful meal that was different then the standard menu.  They had many orders that day, but I felt like I was their only customer.  Everything arrived as planned and all of the guest left with happy, full bellies.  Ravi always got back in touch with me if he did not answer the phone when I called.  Looking forward to having them do our next catering order.

Chic Chef is an awesome choice when planning your next party. They were easy to deal with, reasonably priced and served fabulous food. They were on time, prepared and completely accommodating. I served 25 women hors de'oeuvres, and a light supper: everyone remarked on how tasty and delicious the entire meal was. I highly recommend their services! I'm putting them in my calendar for next years party. More...

We hired Chic Chef to cater our wedding and it was a great success. Chic Chef made several changes to their standard menu items to better suite our tastes and the food was delicious. Ravi did a great job working with us to hammer out the day-of details and arranged for the needed rentals of tables, chairs, linens, etc.... When the Chic Chef crew showed up the day of they were well dressed and super attentive to our needs. Ravi did a great job coordinating with our day of coordinator to make sure everything went as we envisioned. Ravi and his crew also flipped our ceremony space over to dining very quickly. At the end of the evening Chic Chef did a great job cleaning up after the reception. Several of our friends and family have made remarks about the food being the best they have every had at a wedding and the service was excellent. We definitely recommend Chic Chef. More...

I am thrilled to bits with the food and service at Chic Chef Chicago and am giving them an enthusiastic 5 stars. They catered my wedding (passed appetizers, family style dinner, open bar) on September 17th, 2017 and everything was meticulously handled. The food: Along with traditional American fare, we included a few Indian appetizers. Our guests LOVED everything! People are still calling us to rave about the food and ask who our caterer was! One thing I really love about Chic Chef is that the food at the wedding was as good as the samples we tried at the tasting (this isn't always the case with catering vendors). The flavor, presentation, and portion sizes were all excellent. I really think the food helped put all our guests in a great mood. In addition, the bar staff provided by Chic Chef did a great job of following our signature drink recipes. I also want to give a shout out to their captain server, who gave special attention to my husband and I, AND our wedding party (parents, grandparents, bridesmaid, and groomsmen). Our families were really touched by the extra attention and care, and I loved seeing our guests so well looked after. A special note for Ravi, the owner: Ravi was present during our entire wedding and oversaw everything. He checked in regularly with my husband and I to make sure we were happy. He remembered all the small details and even had a secret stash of food/drinks for my husband and I to enjoy right after the ceremony! He adjusted the dinner serving time flawlessly (we were running almost 30 minutes behind).Anyway, I could go on and on, but in summary: Chic Chef and Ravi are a solid investment for your wedding catering, they genuinely care about their couples, and oooh-my-goodness the FOOD! :) More...

Chic Chef, I don't know where to start , so many good things to say.1.  Maya!  Super helpful and professional.  Her kitchen team for our wedding did a spectacular job too! 2.  We had fried chicken for our wedding plus a number of sides.  The chicken was tender, juicy, and crispy.  It was delicious.  The sides were great too.3. They have a wide variety of food options, will tweak what you order if needed, and will cook almost anything for you if you have the recipe.4.  I have worked FoH catering before and currently work BoH in a busy restaurant.  The servers looked clean and professional.  Also, very friendly and efficient.5.  Quick and clean set up and breakdown6.  Great food and staff!  I would highly recommend using Chic Chef for your next catering event.

Wow....what can I say. If I could give this place 10 stars I would! I ordered food well in advance for my event and at the very last minute (the day of) we had more people coming than intended. Maya was able to accommodate my needs by providing more food. So that was a great start. When the food was dropped off Ravi was so pleasant and worked really hard getting things set up. Plus, he was early! He even offered to run to the store for me to buy more of the warmers though he suggested to not leave the food out too long. The team was amazing and the food was even better!!! I kept hearing about the mac and cheese and lasagna. The GOH loved the Korean wings. I didn't get a chance to sample anything because it was ALL GONE!!! I've already decided to use them again for my birthday. More...

Ravi has been very helpful throughout the ENTIRE lengthy process of catering for our wedding. Easy to communicate with and you can tell he really wants to make your event the best it can possibly be. Everyone raved about the food we had at our wedding (meatball sliders, quesadillas, mac and cheese. We went more casual on the food). One of our friends is even going to use him for their wedding after seeing what an amazing job him and his team did. They we are all rockstars and if I ever have another event I will DEFINITELY be using them. You will not be disappointed in them at all. More...
