Best Wedding Food Ever! Heard this over and over from our guests.
Cocina Fusion Catering's food was out of this world. We had almost everyone of our guests we spoke with comment on how delicious the food was at our daughter's wedding reception. We had 175 guests at our wedding and reception and Cocina Fusion was hired to do appetizers, bartenders, served dinner, and late night snack, they knocked it out of the park on all counts. The food tasted excellent we had 3 choices for our guests, the beef chimichurri, stuffed chicken and vegetarian offering of a stuffed poblano pepper were all outstanding and food was hot! People were raving about their appetizers too especially the mini tacos. They were professional, well organized, generous with portions, we could not have been more pleased with the food and service. Highly recommend!Sent on 03/18/2019

Where do I even start? Marcela and her team were perfect from the moment we met them at the tasting. Upon trying the empanadas, we knew we had to have Cocina Fusion at our wedding. It was the best decision we ever made. The food with absolutely delicious and the team was so wonderful to work with. It’s only been two weeks since our wedding and we have already received sooo many compliments. We wanted to do something that wasn’t boring “wedding food” but also wasn’t too out there, oh and it had to be delicious- and that was exactly what we got!Sent on 06/05/2019

Excellent service, delicious food!
We were so happy with our decision to go with Cocina Fusion for our wedding! As my husband is Mexican, it was important for us to incorporate his culture into the day, and being able to have a Latin fusion dinner was a wonderful part of that. The food from Cocina Fusion was simply delicious, and we received compliments from our guests afterward as well. On top of the excellent food, the service that they provide is really special. We worked mainly with Marcela, who we can't recommend enough. She was so warm, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful through each step of the planning process, as well as on the day of the wedding. From start to finish, we felt like we were in such good hands. We definitely had a lot of questions early on in the planning process, and she was incredibly patient and helpful with each one, as well as wonderful in working with us on our menu selections based on our budget. As our venue allowed us to bring in our own liquor, she was also great in helping us gauge how much alcohol, mixers, etc. to bring. She even was so kind as to help with our centerpieces the day of the wedding! Additionally, all the staff that worked during our cocktail hour and reception were so professional and wonderful. My husband and I felt like we and our guests were treated so well that night. We would absolutely recommend Cocina Fusion to others for catering their wedding!Sent on 08/18/2019
Cocina Fusion is so amazing to work with! They have everything you want in a caterer in Chicago - amazing food, and even better service. I love that the owners are the ones who actually create your menu AND cook your food. It really gives them something special compared to everyone else. They have a fun flair and unique menu items but they will also CUSTOMIZE a menu to anything you want. I have seen them make blackened catfish and a biscuit bar (which was totally off menu for them!) for one of my clients and it was still incredible. I highly recommend them!
Excellent food and service! And wonderful people:)
Juliana and her team are incredible to work with! Always a seem less perfect event when Cocina Fusion is catering! Stan Mansion loves having you here and your food is awesome! Hats off to the Chef!
