Wedding Catered by Phantom Chef
Phantom Chef and her staff were beyond amazing at our wedding last week!!! Chef Michelle was easy to talk to throughout all of the planning leading up to our wedding. My guests loved the variety of food (shrimp, steak, chicken, & rice/bean salad) in the menu and complimented countless times on how delicious the food was! The staff was wonderful in that they came directly to my husband and I during cocktail hour to make sure we ate the appetizers!! The cocktail hour appetizers were displayed beautifully! There was also a slight hiccup in that the bartenders did not clear the glasses when they were supposed to, but Chef Michelle and her crew took on the task to save the day! I could not thank them enough for taking on the extra task allowing me not to stress about it. Thank you so so so so much and I will definitely use Phantom Chef in the future!!!Sent on 06/28/2019

Phantom Chef catered our June 2019 wedding! It was absolutely delicious and everything we asked for!Sent on 07/22/2019
After talking with a few caterers in the Binghamton, NY area, I felt as though Chef Michelle was really the only caterer that wanted to do things "our way." She has a wealth of knowledge and is great at giving advice about what will work and what won't work. She is very personable and easy to joke around with. My husband and I really wanted a station reception with three VERY different types of food. Italian, Mexican, and a carving station. At every step of the way, Michelle listened to what we wanted and our dreams became a reality at our wedding! On a side note, Michelle was absolutely wonderful about replying to our quick questions and several emails about rentals and what we needed. It was very helpful!
On the day of the wedding, Chef Michelle and her staff presented a beautiful cocktail hour feast! It was presented exactly the way we wanted and she even arranged separate trays of food for the bridal party to eat while taking pictures at a different location!
The staff serving at the stations were so polite and accommodating, and Chef Michelle's food was absolutely delicious. As my husband and I greeted and checked in with our guests, they couldn't stop talking about how wonderful the meal was!
We are SO glad we chose Phantom Chef! I would highly recommend Michelle and her food to all! We will certainly use Michelle for future parties!
Phantom Chef's reply:Thank you for the review, Kate! We loved working with you, Trevor and your wonderful families to create a customized wedding menu for your special day.

Not your standard wedding food!
After struggling to find a caterer for our big day, we stubbled across Chef Michelle's website and I am so happy that we did! From the beginning, Chef Michelle was invested in helping us to bring our vision of wedding food to life by creating a cohesive, custom, fall harvest menu. Leading up to the big day Chef helped us make decisions that ensured we had everything we needed for seamless service. It is important to know that our reception was held at a winery where all items needed to be rented. Chef made sure to support in this process which took a lot of the planning pressure off of me. I can't thank her enough for that! During and after the wedding people are still commenting on the food, especially the appetizers. I think the bacon wrapped scallops really stole the show! Her staff was kind and if there were any concerns or hiccups I honestly have/had no idea. Phantom Chef truly lived up to their name in that the food was excellent and staff, clean up, and service faded to the background. Extremely professional and exactly what you would want/expect for such an important day. Five stars all around!Sent on 11/14/2018
