Amazing, amazing, AMAZING! So many compliments!! Your wait staff was so wonderful! The bartenders were phenomenal! I got in a fight with 3 of my friends over the green bean casserole because we all wanted to take it home. I literally cannot thank you enough for the wonderful job everyone did! THANK YOU!!!!

From the beginning Chef’s Catering was the most accommodating vendor we had for our wedding.   Chef’s Catering didn’t have the normal buffet style food, from the salad with a twist to the pasta station made how you wanted it, to cooking the food on site at Sonnenberg Gardens made it much more appealing to all of our guest.  Everyone commented on how different and good the food was to the normal buffet food. No one except myself knew that Chef’s Catering (Mike) took full control to make sure everything went smooth.

I just wanted to thank you and your associate for making our reunion such a huge success.  Everyone commented on how good the food was; both of your positive and easy going attitudes.  Your both were extremely polite and friendly.  You were on time and that’s all that mattered.  I’m sorry that I should have sent you a map of the park and directions.    We appreciated all the effort that you did to make it special.  I would indeed recommend you to anyone and if we ever have another big event, I would easily ask for your services.

We wanted a very special luncheon for my daughter-in-law’s baby shower, and Mike Zazzaro, Chef’s Catering, did a wonderful and professional  job for us.  He listened to our needs, made great suggestions and personalized the menu to our preferences. The food was not only spectacular, but elegantly served on silver platters.  All of our guests, the aunts, cousins, friends of the mommy-to-be, raved about how delicious everything was.  Thank you so much, Mike!  We wouldn’t hesitate to use Chef’s Catering again, and would highly recommend you to our friends.

Chef's Catering creatively put together my sister's baby shower. They catered a full service brunch from 11-2. While planning the shower, we discussed our vision for the shower and Mike made it a reality! We wanted French toast and pancakes and ended up with silver dollar pancakes and a French toast casserole (which guests begged for the recipe). We also ate scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and rosemary roasted potatoes. Our guests were ecstatic about having such a satisfying brunch! Chef's Catering showed up an hour before the event and arrived before the end to clean up and pack their van. The cabin was extremely clean and Mike even packed up left overs for us to take home. Planning an event is always stressful. It was nice to be able to depend on a company that shows up on time, delivers incredible food, and cleans up at the end. We will be calling Chef's Catering in the future whenever we plan an event!

"Chef's Catering created an wonderful vegetarian menu for a couple's baby shower I was hosting. I've learned over the years to call in the professionals when you want something done right. Michael walked me through the process of creating the menu. I never felt intimidated and he graciously answered all of my questions. He gave me great suggestions, too. The food was amazing...the vegetarian three-cheese mac 'n cheese was a big hit. The mini Aranchinis were my favorite. Michael's presentation was stunning, from the veggie pinwheels to the spectacular Country Club salad. Everything tasted as good as it looked. He even brought containers for the leftovers! Our guests raved about the food. I couldn't have been more pleased. Thank you Chef's Catering for making our event extra special!"

"I am writing to give my highest recommendation to Chef's Catering.  We have requested their catering services for the past two years at most of our special events and have yet to serve their food without receiving multiple compliments on how delicious the meal is.  If you are seeking great tasting food at competitive pricing, look no further.  What I appreciate most about Chef's Catering is the high quality of food and services we receive whether we are catering for 10 people or 500 people.  Give them a try - you will not be disappointed!"

My husband and I recently hosted a fundraiser for the Rochester Community Foundation at our home.  Mike and his staff were nothing but consummate professionals.  Throughout the cocktail hour, our guests’ couldn’t stop asking who our caterers’ were because of all of the tasty, and creative, hors d'oeuvres that were being passed.  When dinner came, we were all blown away by the presentation and quality of all of the courses served!  As hosts, we were equally as thrilled with the value for such a top notch dinner service.  It was comparable to any high end restaurant we have dined at during our travels.  We will definitely be using Chef’s Catering again.  Very impressed!
