Fanfares catered my wedding with more than 145 guests and I was in complete amazement of how great they handled everything. The staff was a superb, the meals and hors d'oeuvres were delicious. The evening went over flawlessly and I cannot give them enough praise for making my special day truly special in all forms. Everyone complemented the menu and some said that it was some of the best food they had ever received from a catered event. GREAT JOB!!!!!

We got married 6 months ago, so I've waited way too long to write this, but Fanfares deserves a lot more great reviews than are here so I hope others will join in as well.

This is a great catering company in every way imaginable. They were flexible and kind about our budget and food selection from the first minute we worked with them all the way through our reception. We had a very set budget and also some specific food requests and they absolutely nailed it. They provided friendly service and our guests raved about the food. On top of it all, they are just great people. I would work with Charisse and Robert again no matter what they were selling. It just so happens they are selling great food and excellent catering service. I highly recommend them.

My husband and I got married at Promontory Point in May of 2013. Because Promontory Point is part of the Chicago Park District, we were limited to the list of caterers that were on that list. I wouldn't have thought I'd be saying this when I first started the planning process, but I'm really glad for that list. If it weren't for that list, I'm not sure I would have learned about Fanfares. We met with several caterers and found that Fanfares was the one that was most willing to work with our budget while still giving us delicious and elegant food. We weren't willing to compromise on the quality of food for our guests and Fanfares didn't make us have to do that.

Charisse and Robert are pros that understood our vision for our wedding. Renting Promontory Point means renting an empty room. Fanfares was able to transform it into a magical space filled with delicious food and friendly faces. Have I mentioned the delicious food yet?

The day of our wedding they were perfect. Just perfect. They were punctual, they did everything just as they said they would, they were friendly, and they made sure my husband and I ate that night! Everyone raved about the food of course and everyone commented on what a great job they did.

I was recommended this caterer from the people at the Stan Mansion, where I had my extremely expensive wedding. They were horrible and the fact that they were going to serve my guests wine in a damn bear mug and didnt have REAL silverware, they gave them plastic silverware..still makes my skin crawl. NEVER EVER USE THEM..EVER

I wish I could take them to court but its been so long now why even bother.

Fanfare was suggested to us by Stan Mansion. The food was absolutely phenomenal. The service and presentation was professional and on time. Fanfare took their time to help us custom design the menu to our theme. Everyone loved the food I'm still getting emails and phone calls about how good the food was.
