    Ivy and her team were fantastic!

    There were two things we wanted to do to make our wedding memorable: Food and Music. Fig helped us knock it out of the park AND through them we found our wonderful venue!

    We knew we didn't want to do a banquet hall and be locked in with the standard filet mignon and salmon protein choices and when we saw Fig's eclectic and cultural sample menus, we knew we were on the right track.

    My confidence in Fig doubled when they asked us "What are your favorite restaurants? We'll design a menu based off of those". Their suggestions ended up being a highly curated blend of all of our favorite cuisines (Indian, Japanese, Thai, and Mexican).

    I also highly suggest going with their liquor package as their bartender was simply outstanding and designed for us a signature cocktail that ALL of our attendees raved about, I would no doubt pay $15 for a similar one here in the city of Chicago! Alongside that were also stand out local beer selections from their knowledgable mixologist and wine selections from Ivy!

    AND they even had home made chocolate smores for late night bites... I still dream about those.

    Fig is the best of the best!

    We spent a lot of time researching caterers for our wedding, and I couldn't be happier that we chose Fig! From the tasting, through the planning stages, to the day of, Fig raised the bar on our expectations of what a caterer can deliver. Not only was the food incredible (and we've gotten so much positive feedback from our guests about it!), but the staff was unbelievably accommodating and friendly. I can't tell you how much they added to the experience for us and our guests. We were floored by the entire experience that Fig delivered, and I would recommend them to anyone.

    FIG - Chicago's BEST caterer!

    We took a lot of time to research and go to tastings before going with FIG - especially since catering is typically (and it was for us!) the largest expense of your wedding day. Initially, it got off to a rough start with our original tasting being cancelled (we know now it was due to staffing, which is now resolved, we would rather FIG cater to a current, booked wedding, so we get it), but we are SO glad we decided to reschedule post this minor hiccup.

    We met with Ivy, and during our tasting were able to meet the owners. Through visiting FIG, meeting the entire team, and people behind the scenes, and tasting the food, we knew we were going to sign our contract with FIG. Hands down, their food was the best - locally sourced, fresh, sustainable, and most importantly, the BEST tasting, including their drinks (wine and signature cocktails included). The fact they are members of the Green Wedding Alliance was also very important to us - as Chicagoans, we love, love, love food and the quality/source of it, so FIG ticked all of these boxes.

    Ivy was stellar in terms of communication; we will admit, FIG was pricey, but at the end of the day, was worth it. They were extremely patient going back and forth regarding quotes, adding/taking away items, working things, around, etc. The only constructive feedback we give is minor: one, they told us before signing contracts and the wedding day that getting any beer/wine was "fine, we can get it!" as getting two of our favorite local beers was exciting to us, as was wine from specific regions that had a personal connection with both us - none of these were delivered, even after saying verbally it was probably going to happen, minor bummer in the grand scheme of things. Second constructive bit was regarding the late night bites... we had to go back and ask someone to bring them back out because the father of the bride never saw them/was dying to have them, as well as friends who realized they were there, but then gone. They were packed up WAY too early, and we were looking forward to these the most! In the end, another small hiccup.

    Would we use them again? Yes! Recommend them? Yes! We hope to attend future FIG events as well, and please note, Molly, the rock star owner behind FIG, is truly amazing, kind, professional, and we felt beyond lucky for her to be there on our wedding day (which we were not expecting!). Also, Ryan, their drink master, was the best bar man! His skill in making drinks is unreal. My brother attended the drink event with us prior to the wedding and he was blown away (he's a hard man to please and impress, so well done FIG). Thank you Ivy, Molly, Ryan, and FIG team!

    Molly and her team at FIG are top-tier! They take the time to really get to know what their clients are looking for in their food experience and then exceed all expectations. The food is interesting and just as delicious at an intimate party of 5 as at a wedding for 150. Plus, they don't just claim to be "green", they have a true commitment to the environment and helping to reduce the carbon footprint of every event. You truly cannot go wrong with FIG.
