    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!

    Best Caterer Ever!

    I can't say enough wonderful things about Cocina Fusion. We had to replan our wedding due to Covid and Juliana from Cocina Fusion was the absolute best to work with -- she's professional, organized, very responsive -- everything you dream of in a vendor . From the tasting to our wedding day, they went above and beyond. Everyone at the wedding raved about the food and a month after the wedding guests still comment on how incredible the food was! The service from the team was next level and every detail was handled including added safety precautions due to Covid. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and a huge part of that was due to Cocina Fusion! Truly above and beyond in every aspect!

    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!
