We hired Chef Rossi and her team for our wedding and from the beginning, we could tell she was different than all of the typical caterers. She doesn't give you templated menus, she is always so accomodating and flexible and she doesn't get caught up in "traditions" of wedding catering. Whether it was the tasting, the payment schedule, the sample menu - she def. does it with her own style. If you want someone who is very rigid, structured and traditional she is not for you. If you want to have fun while working on your menu and be able to customize it in any way you want - hire her. Her commuication style is not for everyone as she is very informal, but for us, it was perfect. None of the pretentiousness that other caterers clearly came with. On the day of, the food was very good and met expectations. Charmaine, her point at the reception, was spectacular. She was always taking care of us and ensuring that everything went off perfectly. All in all, it was a bit more expensive than we expected but that was on us - not Rossi. We chose to add various elements. From a quality perspective, Rossi doesn't sacrifice a thing. Overall, we were pleased with everything.
Chef Rossi and her team (especially Charmaine!) were absolutely phenomenal. Extremely easy to work with, completely professional, but also amazingly fun and personable. Her team ran like a well-oiled machine on the day of the event, which is invaluable. That’s all apart from the food, however, which is truly in a different league from that of any other caterer. Incredibly creative, perfectly executed and utterly delicious. The number of compliments we received on the food was exceeded only by the number of people asking for Chef Rossi’s contact information. If food is important to you, The Raging Skillet is the unquestionably the go-to caterer. Simply perfect.
Before I even tasted her food, I knew Chef Rossi of the Raging Skillet was going to cater our wedding. She put my wife and I at ease with her very relaxed professionalism and her genuine interest in US and who we were and what we wanted.
Chef went over everything having to do with money up front. Even things to think about, financially speaking, that didn't have anything to do with paying the caterer. It if wasn't for her I would have had many unwanted surprises just before the wedding. She worked with our budget and helped us save money along the way.
Then came the amazing food!!! Chef invited us to not one, but two tastings and we loved everything put in front of us. Her first sample menu for us was so spot on that we only ever changed one item.
The day of the event, her staff was amazing and we received compliments about the food all day during the event. Recently, almost a month after the event, a friend of mine commented, unsolicited, "That was the best food I have ever had at a wedding."
Chef Rossi is an amazing person who loves what she does and cares about her clients. BOOK HER!!!
For weeks after the wedding, all we kept hearing from our friends and family was how FABULOUS the food was! This was gratifying to us, because my husband and I are foodies and normally don't enjoy "wedding food," but the credit all goes to Chef Rossi, who provided us not only with incredible, original, memorable food, but first rate service. Chef Rossi was instrumental in helping us plan within our budget. We had a cocktail reception with passed hors d'eurves and an artisanal meat and cheese table. The presentation was amazing - unlike anything I've ever seen. Chef Rossi's bartender did an amazing job on our specialty cocktail. Her entire staff was incredibly accommodating to all of our guests. Our experience with The Raging Skillet was outstanding and I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for the most delicious food around and the best service.
Chef Rossi & The Raging Skillet staff are awesome! Chef Rossi was so helpful throughout our entire planning of our continuous cocktail reception. The food was amazing, the presentation beautiful, and her staff extremely accommodating to all of our guests. We are still getting rave reviews from our guests about her services. Totally recommend for any catering event!!
Chef Rossi and The Raging Skillet team are great! They created beautiful and delicious treats for our cocktail hour and our wedding reception. Rossi worked with us throughout the planning process and even recommended other vendors to help us have the event of our dreams. Rossi's food was fresh, creative, and tasty. She made sure that we were all very well fed & our guests loved it! The Raging Skillet team is pleasant and everyone looks great. Her team even took the time to make our specialty cocktails and drinks and seemed to be having a great time. Everyone was very professional. I'd definitely use them again and again.
Chef Rossi was great to work with. I would recommend her especially with this venue. She was flexible as we changed some menu options during the process and was able to help us plan a great meal and cocktail hour within our budget! The guests seemed to really enjoy the food!
