The best food and service!
Marcela and the team did an amazing job from start to finish. The communication with Marcela throughout the entire process was flawless and her expertise made us feel at ease. It was calming to know we were in good hands. The appetizers and dinner were the best we tried! We have only great things to say about Cocina and are so happy we went with them!

Delicious wedding food!
Simply put: the food is amazing. Our menu consisted of Spinach and Cheese Empanadas, Chipotle Meatballs, Shredded Beef Colombian Arepas, Fusion Salad, Chimichurri Steak, Stuffed Chicken w/ cream sauce, Baked Plantains, and the Puerto Rican Rice and Beans. We are still getting compliments about how good our wedding food was, even from the pickiest eaters! Marcela and team were extremely easy to work and ensured the evening ran smoothly. Our only "complaint" is that they don't have a restaurant for us to enjoy the food all over again!Sent on 01/17/2020
Cocina Fusion's reply:Gracias Nicole & Eric (: it was a pleasure being part of your big day in the best way possible...providing your first meal as Mr. & Mrs. Our best wishes today and always, Marcela.

Best wedding food ever
Some main highlights from working with Cocina Fusion/ Marcela:Sent on 01/20/2020
1. They were referred to me by three brides, so already I had high expectations.
2. For our NYE wedding, Cocina Fusion was the most all inclusive menu with the best pricing.
3. Marcela was an absolute joy to work with. She was professional, responsive, accommodating, sweet, and engaging through the whole process.
4. The waitstaff and bartenders were above and beyond. So attentive, so quick, and rolled with all of the punches.
5. I had over 20 people ask me for leftovers, told me it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. And for the record, the food was BOMB. We weren't totally surprised this was the feedback.
I recommend them over and over.
Cocina Fusion's reply:Hello newlyweds! BEST NYE wedding ever (: you had such a fun vision that entailed making sure your guests enjoyed every aspect of the night and making sure that got executed was truly a blast! Our best wishes, Marcela
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!
