Better than we imagined!

We chose the Chef & I to cater our wedding at Soldiers & Sailors. With COVID, we postponed our wedding from December 2020 to November 2021. Through all of the worry and stress of moving our dates, Nikki at Chef & I was always responsive and accommodating throughout the whole process. When it comes to the food, we can’t fit all of the complements we received the night of the wedding into this review! The steak was cooked perfectly for over 100 of our guests, the chicken was superb, and the vegetarian was “the best they’ve ever had”. The service, set-up and cleanup were all seamless and the passed and plated appetizers all came out quickly and hot. The cookie table set up was beautiful and never left a tray empty. We can’t say enough about how much Chef & I made our wedding day even better than we imagined. Married on 11/4/2021 Elizabeth R

Incredibly Delicious!

The food was incredibly delicious! We received so many compliment of how flavorful and tender the beef and chicken were. I highly recommend the Chef and I catering for your wedding. Hands down the best! Nikki, the coordinator, was very responsive and answered all of my questions and concerns. The day before and of the wedding the staff was professional and kept things moving smoothly. We had our wedding at a venue where we were responsible for everything. They even helped cut our wedding cake for us! I can’t thank the Chef and I catering enough for the outstanding job they did! Married on 9/17/2021 Rebecca D

Great Experience!

From start to finish it was a great experience. They accommodated our tasting during covid 19 peak and it was incredible. Nikki and team were amazing, food was FANTASTIC. Everyone raved about the service and I can’t recommend enough. I was terrified my wedding plans would fall through during covid and the chef and I provided so much clarity around a great experience. THANK YOU!! Married on 9/10/2021 Alyssa H

Highly Recommended!

We had The chef and I catering for our wedding in August. The food is still talked about how amazing it was. The workers were absolutely amazing especially Tiffany! She went above and beyond! I highly recommend them to anyone! Married on 10/7/2021 Kylee S

Incredible Experience!

First of all- the tasting was incredible! Everything was done up for us to really experience the foods and try everything with our families! Then- everything leading up to the wedding was super smooth and they answered all of our questions. On our day, the food was delicious and we had to worry about 0 decisions or problems!

Professional and Well Organized!

I am so happy we were able to work with The Chef and I at our wedding. We were yet another couple who had to move our wedding date twice because of COVID, but we finally were able to have our special day September of 2021 at Soldiers and Sailors. We had our tasting months before the onset of the pandemic, and it was a great experience. The Chef and I team was prepared for us, and I was impressed at how many things we got to try. Best of all, everything was delicious. As the months passed and we were in a frenzy of new dates and changes, Nikki was always accommodating and available to answer any questions. When the day finally came, I was impressed by how professional and well organized the staff was. I did not have to worry once about anything food related. It is truly a talented team of individuals. The Chef and I always made sure we had food and water in the “getting ready room” while we were waiting for the ceremony and introductions. We enjoyed the passed appetizers so much and the dinner tasted just like we remembered from the tasting. We received so many compliments from our guests about how delicious the food was. The Chef and I also set up our our cookies and desserts on one of the tables. I was so impressed by how nicely they arranged everything (and there was a lot of cookies and desserts of all sizes). I had my 7 week old daughter with me on my wedding day (thanks COVID), and The Chef and I went above and beyond to help us wash and heat up bottles. I am truly grateful for that. Pricing was very reasonable, and all the details were always clear in any document Nikki would send us. I would highly recommend the Chef and I! Married on 9/2/2021 Audrey M

Couldn’t have been more pleased!

We chose the Chef and I catering for our wedding at Soldiers and Sailors, and we couldn’t have been more pleased! The food was delicious and all of their staff at our wedding were so kind and helpful and everything ran smoothly. Nikki at the Chef and I was extremely helpful as we planned a wedding during such a stressful time. She was quick to answer any questions we had and worked with us to have a tasting that we were comfortable with during the pandemic. We would definitely recommend the Chef and I to other couples planning a wedding. Married on 7/9/2021 Kelly M

The Very Best!

THE.VERY.BEST! The Chef & I Catering are the MVPs in Pittsburgh. Planning a wedding during a pandemic had it’s challenges, but The Chef & I, especially Kris & Nikki, made sure to always make me feel like we would pivot if needed. We got married at Soldiers & Sailors and received SO many compliments about the food and portions. We are a 100% Italian family so food is my family’s baby and my parents, my fiancé, & I couldn’t have been more pleased :). Married on 7/2/2021 Stephanie Z
