"Excellent all the way through! Thank you!   North Island Catering made the Chicago Dental Society Foundation's Wine & Roses fundraiser a success! I could not have asked for a better partner from start to finish. Allen was great to work with and was very very responsive to my questions and our specific event needs. The fundraiser attendees raved about the food and the presentation, especially the beef tenderloin carving station. I don't think I have had a more positive catering experience and I would absolutely ask North Island to come downtown to cater any of our events. Everything was wonderful- thank you for complimenting our beautiful Michigan Avenue view with your wonderful service and food."

"Look no further for catering!   North Island Catering is awesome! We worked with Allen for our daughter's one year birthday party. From the start he was great! He really made it a great experience which was part of why we chose them! The food was delicious! I stuffed my face! It was all so good! It was just as good as I remembered!! We had so many compliments on it and that it was hot!! Not cold like most party's! Working with Allen was great! They were super easy going and accommodating. We really appreciate it and would recommend them to anyone!"

"I contacted Allen after reading many of his outstanding reviews on Thumbtack. He so impressed me with his communication and confidence that I chose North Island Catering to handle an outdoor corporate event for about 200 people with very little lead time. Throughout the very short planning time, he guided me through menu options and advice about party rentals. Even when I threw him a curveball and some last minute changes, he was never anything but positive and encouraging. Even before our event I knew that I would have nothing to worry about. I was 100% confident that he would make sure our event was enjoyable and successful. And I was right- it turned out perfectly.   There were so many compliments about the food! Everyone loved the BBQ brisket, the pulled pork and the grilled salmon. The sides, appetizers and desserts were also extremely tasty and fresh. If I had to think of one negative thing it would have to be that there was too MUCH food! But that meant everyone had delicious leftovers for lunch the next day. I’m glad we had our event on a Thursday night so everyone could enjoy the food the next day. We really appreciated it.   I recommend Allen and Christina to anyone looking for a true professional and guaranteed good food. They strive to please and will bend over backwards to make sure your event is great. In my opinion it was also an extremely good value for the price. I look forward to using them again for future events."
