Review №1

We originally had booked our wedding reception at the City View Terminal in Champaign, IL, therefore were using Dish Passionate Cuisine for catering since that is their primary location. We had worked with Colleen to get everything squared away. However, we had to change our reception date and eventually the venue location due to the COVID 19 pandemic. When we had to change the date and the venue later on, we had reached out to Colleen. She was very difficult to get a hold of. She would not answer emails in a timely fashion and didn't return calls back, whether it was from myself or my parents. She would text occasionally when we called her and she was unavailable, but extremely brief and vague. We started to feel the crunch time pressure of changing the location and wasn't sure if she was going to respond. Once we heard from Colleen she was accommodating and was willing to work with us so we could change the menu to fit an outdoor location better. The day before our outdoor "I Do-BBQ" reception, Colleen's sister Liz came out to see the area and make sure all of our questions were answered. The day of the reception, Liz was the one who came out with the staff. They were super prompt and very professional. If there were questions on the food, Liz would either be able to answer right away or get the answer super quick. The staff was great. They were filling coolers, which wasn't their job, to help us out and make sure our guests were taken care of. The food was ready on time and Liz kept checking in with my parents and myself to ensure everything was going well. They had boxed up all the leftovers and made sure we knew where they were before they left. The food was outstandingly good!! So many of the guests commented on how delicious the food was! Definitely a good choice. The day of service and food was amazing. The communication during the planning was not good and definitely frustrating. Would recommend because the food was great but would warn brides to stay on top of communication. I want to give a 4-star review, except with all the stress of changing a wedding during a global pandemic and having to pretty much hunt down the caterer, while being on the verge of possibly finding a new one, was extremely frustrating.

My extended family suffered a great loss, and I was planning to take them a meal from Dish. Then I had an emergency and Dish offered to deliver. They did and the family was grateful and so was I. I heard amazing reviews about the food tonight. Thank you for everything you do!

Excellent catering options, and during the pandemic, perfect curbside pickup options for when you are tired of cooking. Highly recommended over and over!

Dish catered our wedding a couple of weeks ago and we couldn't have been happier with the buffet menu and passed appetizers. Everything was so delicious and flavorful and our guests were very complimentary of the meal!It was such a pleasure working with Colleen too. She is the friendliest and most professional there is! She helped us construct a menu that provided a great experience for our guests and fit our taste. From our initial taste test to the final menu, she made every stage of planning seamless and fun.The Dish Passionate Cuisine crew is the best there is when it comes to catering! :)
