It was amazing! The food was delicious, we have leftovers, everyone said it was delicious... the eggplant parm was a HUGE hit! Everyone was saying it was a great change from our normal holiday party food. The set up and delivery was amazing and very different for us! I can not thank you enough for making the process smooth and easy. You got back to us fast and worked with us on a menu and a price. It was fantastic! It made my job a whole lot easier. Thank you THANK YOU!!! More...

Mike & Team,Thank you so much for the wonderful Moroccan themed menu you created for our holiday party at the ArtisanWorks Casablanca Room. The appetizers, entrees and desserts were not only beautiful, but left everyone talking about how delicious they were for days. Working with you and your staff for various company functions for the last seven years has been such a pleasure; you help make my job very easy! You have always been willing to try new menu items, themes, and venues. The creativity you exhibit, quality of food and presentation is beyond compare.Your staff is pleasant, personable and professional. People are very excited when they know you will be catering for us-whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner.For all of these reasons you are my go-to caterer of choice. Thank you, again, for helping me pull off another great event!Patty BascombSMP Event Coordinator More...

The Electrical Association of Western New York held our Tri-Annual Trade Show at the Dome Arena. Mike and his amazing team provided a BBQ buffet for more than 1,000 people! The food was amazing, the area was kept clean, and the service was impeccable. We truly enjoyed our experience with Chef's and we're already looking forward to our next show in 2022 when we hire Chef's again! More...

We had Chef's Catering for our wedding on 9/29/19 and it was the best decision we could have made!! We got married at the Lakefront Lodge in Webster, NY and had about 50 guests but did much of the set-up and preparation ourselves. Working with Jillian was a dream and she assured us that they would be able to help with anything we needed. On the day of our wedding her team went absolutely above and beyond!!! They helped us put the finishing touches on our venue, had me sample the wedding cocktail to make sure it was to my liking, and made sure my husband and I always had a drink in our hands are were having fun! We really can't say enough good things about them! The food and service was phenomenal! They without a doubt made our wedding extra special and I am so grateful we went with them! Thank you Chef's Catering you guys are incredible! More...

Chef's Catering catered our wedding in October 2019. We could not be more pleased with the food, service, communication .. . everything! Jill worked with us the whole way to help us customize a menu, bring our crazy ideas to life and stock the bar full of our favorite craft beers. She was always very responsive and the tools they use to produce estimates are extremely user friendly. Our guests can't stop raving about the food, the beautiful presentation and the attentive bartenders. They made everything from beef tenderloin sliders to pork belly tacos and shanghai fried noodles - everything was ON POINT delicious! Oh and the lamb lollipops at happy hour were outstanding. Everything went smoothly and if there were any hiccups day-of, we were not aware. Jill & Team, thank you so much for making our food dreams come true for our wedding! HIGHLY recommended!! More...

We have used Chef's Catering a number of times now to cater conferences (100+ people) at work. Each time it has been a great experience! Not only is their food great (attendees RAVED about a latin-style buffet we had for one conference), but the service is always exceptional. Before the event, Jillian is always very accessible and happy to answer any of my myriad of questions. The day of the event, Mike and his team are always extremely attentive and prepared. Mike checks in regularly on how things are going and even takes care of extra tasks, like putting up extra food signs I have made. And all of this for a fair price! By far our favorite caterer to use! More...

I planned am event on Father's Day (work related) I was a little concern about using a company that I didn't knew anything about it other than a friend recommendation I decided to go for it and used their services. Planning the meal, adjusting the menu a few times was very easy. They were 100% professionals and easy to get in touch and go over any concerns. The day of the event, they came and set things up and I had so many of the guesses telling how great the food was. Even one of guys that does this for a living was telling me how much he loved the pulled pork. I highly recommend this for any event that you may be planning. You won't regret it. (My menu was: pulled pork, hot dogs, hamburgers and cheeseburgers, chicken, baked beans, potatoes salad and pasta salad and everything was delicious) More...

We recently ordered from the Barbecue theme menu for our family party aboard the Sam Patch Canal Boat. Everyone enjoyed the food a great deal! Placing and picking up our order was made very easy for us. The food was well-prepared and packaged and ready to go! We were able to easily set up and serve, buffet style, with the provided containers and serving utensils. Favorites were the pulled pork, Hawaiian kabobs and pasta salad. The green salad was outstanding as well. Chef’s also prepared our selection of mini cupcakes, and these were all equally yummy and well-received. I would highly recommend this caterer. Thank you Chef’s!! More...

Chef's Catering did an awesome job for our Workshop at the University of Rochester on 4/1/2019. The food was delicious, so tasteful, and Mike Zazzaro was so easy to work with. He was very flexible when I had to make changes at the last minute. Our workshop had 164 people and many came up to me to tell he how good the food was. Mike has already received one job from our workshop at the U of R. I would recommend Chef's Catering very highly!!

Can’t say enough about Chef’s Catering. Mike, Matt and their staff did an “amazing” job on my sons I Do BBQ. Had many compliments on the food and there was plenty of it. Don’t hesitate to call them. If I could have give them 10 Stars I would have. I’ve been in the DJ business for 31 years and they were hands down the best caterers I seen. I knew that when I needed a caterer, Chef’s would be the one. Thanks again for all you did to make our event an awesome one!! More...

My husband and I are SO incredibly happy we chose Chef's as our wedding caterer! From the moment we emailed Jillian & Mike, we felt taken care of. Throughout the process, they were extremely responsive, answered all of our questions, were very thorough, and just amazing professionals. Jillian went above and beyond and did a site visit with me to our venue about 3 weeks before the wedding to go over the set up, speak with the venue owner, and make sure that the day would go seamlessly. You can tell they do these events ALL THE TIME and are experts at it. We chose buffet style for dinner and the food was fantastic. Oh my goodness - the mac and cheese station - to die for! Our guests were raving about the food!! They were also super accommodating to dietary restrictions, as we had a few guests who were gluten free and vegetarian. Not to mention, they fed our 180 guests probably within about 20 minutes or less (with 2 buffet lines - genius). Chef's seriously is the best and we don't know how we would have done it without them! We HIGHLY recommend them, not only for their delicious food, but for the incredible service delivered leading up to and on the day of our wedding! Thank you Chef's!!! More...

My wife and I hired Chef's Catering for our wedding and they were pleasant throughout the entire process! We wanted an entree that wasn't quite on their menu, but they customized things for us so we had a unique dinner. Neither of us interacted with the staff much during our big day, which is a good thing, and everything was taken care of without issue. Great food, great staff, and great prices...I'd definitely recommend them to anyone who's looking for something good or unique! More...

Chef's catered my bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, and baby shower. I would've had them do my wedding, but my venue didn't allow an outside caterer. Their food is always delicious and beautifully presented. They did all of the set up/clean up, provided everything we needed, and made my cakes too, so I was able to relax and enjoy each of these events. Food is really important to me, which is why I use chef's - it's not the dry, bland, so-so food that you usually get at a catered event or banquet hall. I highly recommend their homemade pastas, arancini (stuffed, fried rice balls), and their Italian cookie trays! More...

We handed over the reigns to our wedding weekend over to Chef's catering. The results: EVERYONE couldn't stop talking about the delicious food and the top notch service. We even took the leftovers home and made another picnic meal out of it during our gift unwrapping party!The relationship with Chef's started 9 months out after we had picked our venue (Grainger Homestead in Canandaigua). We met Chef Michael Zazzaro and his staff at their kitchen. We had queued Chef Michael ahead of time that we wanted at bbq theme for our wedding dinner. We tasted an assortment of apps and bbq meats. We were hooked. Chef's put together a bbq package for our party that was out of this world. We had a 4 item app station with 3 styles of dips concoctions. Dinner was an array of mouth watering bbq meats and MUST HAVE mac-n-cheese bar. Pair that with tableside salad and a bartending staff that was VERY professional and attentive. Our guests had a GREAT time.Chef's catering also did our three-tiered and three flavor wedding cake as well as my brothers special birthday pie!Chef's also came to the rescue with plated Italian dinner served inside the Grainger Homestead for our rehearsal. Wow...chicken parm and pasta Bolognese (off the freakin' hook!). I didn't taste the gnocchi or the veggie option, but no complaints from my guests.EVENT COORDINATION!!! Cathryn was the bomb! I can not tell you how much my bride appreciated Cathryn's day-of/night-of services. She rallied the staff during rehearsal and she stuck around til midnight to make sure our rental company had things in place. Her staff executed and had everything staged for our arrival. She was attentive to everyone's needs. Everything went off without a hitch on our wedding day. Cathryn was worth every penny. I hope she continues on with Chef's catering. This is her element and she is really really great with what she does!!I can't wait to head back to Rochester and find their food truck and gobble down their food!!!Thanks for making our important day special!

We hired Chef's Catering to cater our wedding and we could not have been more pleased with the end result. We had multiple people in our wedding that have food allergies and Chef's was more than willing to work with us to make our wedding exactly what we wanted. They were quite knowledgeable about our allergies and were also conscientious to ensure the food was prepared safely. Our Wedding meal was entirely gluten free and we had numerous people (including the band and photographers) tell us that this was one of the best wedding meals they've had. We also used got our bartenders and day of coordinator through Chef's and both were great. Cathryn Calabria, our day of coordinator, was specifically wonderful. She met with my wife and I multiple times, and coordinated with all of our vendors to ensure that everything went smoothly the day of our wedding. The only minor drawback we had with working with Chef's was that we needed to ask multiple times for our final invoice. That being said, we still received the invoice prior to the event and the only error that was made, was quickly corrected by Cathryn without issue. All in all we are very happy we went with Chef's and would certainly recommend them. More...

I would like to respond to "Cory". It seems this is not a real person. Chefs has incredible food and can run large events in an extremely professional manner.

Great food, Great experienceI do not usually do reviews, but I feel the need to let everyone know about my experience with Chef's Catering and their staff. I have had many parties and have referred them to the company I work for and they have used Chef's Catering for several events as well.The food was cooked to perfection, the service was spot on, and the professionalism of Michael and his sister Jill along with their staff was very helpful. We received multiple compliments and I have never heard a negative comment from anyone at either parties.In my opinion the negative review from Carol Samuels who I am sure is not a real person sounds like someone is very jealous, or vindictive against Chef's Catering, unfortunately that is the uncontrolled use of social media, because anyone can be anyone. I will continue to use Chef's Catering and refer them for any future event. More...
