    Best Caterer in Chicagoland!

    We were very impressed with Blue Plate Catering at every step of planning for my daughter's wedding in July. From the fabulous tasting at their offices, to the quality & service the night of the reception, Blue Plate exceeded our expectations. The food was fresh, innovative & delicious! Our guests are still talking about it.

    Would give them 10 stars if possible!

    Having been introduced to Blue Plate through work functions, I knew if there was any way we could afford to use them for our wedding, that’s who I wanted to work with. And as a pleasant surprise, they weren’t even our highest quote! And I can’t even say enough how wonderful it was to work with Nicole C. at Blue Plate, from the initial phone conversation to the big day. She immediately got the vision we had. It was so wonderful being able to have the flexibility to create a menu from the ground up to fulfill our vision of a French themed evening. From having them specifically source breakfast radishes for crudite, to recreating a salad I was set on having, and fulfilling our vision for centerpieces lush with demi baguettes and croissants, no other caterer could have done it better. And the food, as expected, was delicious and beautiful! Our venue told us that no one else is better than Blue Plate when it comes to service. I had so many guests tell me they were SO impressed with the staff’s attention to detail and efficiency of service. And I find it so endearing that every staff member I came into contact with that evening congratulated me on my marriage. They are simply the BEST!

    Amazing Wedding Caterer!

    Thank you so much for bringing our visions to life and for creating such a perfect wedding reception for our guests to enjoy. We have received so many compliments about how amazing our food and fun drinks were and that it was the prettiest reception our guests had ever seen! Thank you for working with us and helping us create personalized touches, an amazing wedding weekend, and truly unforgettable memories with all of our family and friends. You and your team went above and beyond - we cannot thank you enough! It was a weekend we will never forget, thanks to you and Blue Plate!

    We hope to see you at another event and/or wedding soon! (And 1 year tasting if that ends up working out! :))

    With Love,
    Lauren & Garret
