    The Best Caterer in Chicago

    My daughter's wedding was on November 13, 2021, but my post never got from my desk to this page. So after cleaning my desk today, I found my words and I still feel the same way.

    Michele, there are no words to thank you for Saturday night. From the moment we met at our party planner's office until Saturday night and everything in between, everything was outstanding! Catering by Michael’s never disappoints! It’s amazing what happens behind closed doors that I don’t get to see. One goal that I had was to try every single appetizer. Your wonderful staff, serving them, knew my goal and helped to make sure that I tried every delicious appetizer that we had ordered. It was a success, I tried them all. Your staff was incredible. You are incredible! Thank you so much for everything you did to make my daughter and my son-in-law’s special night, even that more special. I have no idea what you did for the people with all of the special dietary needs. When I saw that list, I couldn’t believe it! But, you did it! People commented about how wonderful the food was! Thank you, thank you and thank you again!

    Amazing Experience During Covid

    It's a weird time to plan a wedding, and Moriah & Michael's took away so much of the stress of it all. I helped my sister-in-law organize her small, backyard wedding and it was a cinch with CBM. Food was amazing, everybody on staff was so friendly and nice and helpful, and their Covid precautions were really well thought out. Highly, highly, highly recommend.

    Truly the best!!!

    There are no words that can describe how happy I am that we chose to work with CBM for our wedding. Aside from the fact that the food was phenomenal, the quality of service, professionalism, and accessibility leading up to and on our wedding night far exceeded all of our expectations. Michele and her team truly thought through every detail. When our guest count doubled just a couple of weeks before the wedding (thank you Covid Vaccine!), Michele remained completely calm and executed everything flawlessly. They say brides don't eat on their wedding nights, but after my tasting I knew I had to eat everything because it was SO delicious!!!

    Catering by Michaels's reply:

    Sophia,
    Thank you for the awesome review. We are thrilled that we exceeded your expectations. You looked beautiful on your wedding day, and with your amazing smile and engaging, warm personality, you are beautiful every day (must be your amazing family 😉). Good luck to both of you in your marriage!!
