Testimonials

 

Chez Alice was the perfect choice for the wedding my husband and I had in mind. They were very quick to respond to our initial request for information and that excellent customer service continued even after the event was finished. Since the wedding, family and friends constantly tell us how delicious the food was. The beef stew and chicken pot pie are not usual choice for a large gathering, but were both the shining stars of the night. I would definitely recommend both for any event! The chutneys and different spreads that went along with the turkey and roast pork complimented the meats perfectly. Our appetizers were fresh and consistently replenished to the guests delight. Quite simply put, the food was delectable and perfect in every way.

Jean and the staff of the day of the event were helpful, polite and excited which really set the tone for the night. I was not worried or concerned, because Jean and her team were so on top of everything. In fact, she would remind me of things that I had forgotten and take care of them immediately. I really felt like we weren't just another couple getting married, but that we were special and that Chez Alice wanted to make sure we had the wedding of our dreams.

Chez Alice was worth every penny and I will recommend Chez Alice to anyone looking for food & service that is beyond exceptional.

Chez Alice Catering was great! So helpful in the planning process with all the details on the food side and event side. They really helped make our wedding the perfect day! Everything went very smoothly and food was great! They also made sure we were taken care of that day, which was so nice since the day flew by. And they seemed just as excited about our wedding in the planning process and just as happy that day as we were! Highly recommend

Everything about Chez Alice was WONDERFUL. Kelly and Jean did an amazing job for us and were incredible throughout the entire process. Throughout the 8-9 months of planning they listened to every thought/idea/desire we had and pulled all the stops for us. They were flexible with our budget and really understood what we wanted/needed. The food was delicious and everything was on time, on point, and lovely. Jean was so attentive the day of and I think I'm one of the few brides who can say that I actually got to eat a good deal on my wedding day. I can't begin to thank them enough for everything -- all of our guests have been raving about the food, the service, and the raw bar. Highly, highly recommended from us and I very rarely give out 5 stars!!!

There are not enough adjectives in the dictionary to fully describe how wonderful, professional, helpful, responsible, flexible, accomodating, compassionate, friendly, organized, efficient, cheerful and thoughtful everyone at Chez Alice was. My daughter was a very busy bride-to-be, attending school full-time until a week before the wedding day and without the support, understanding and friendship of Kelly and Jean the reception would never have turned out to be as perfectly beautiful as it did. The tables were set beautifully. The food was just OUTSTANDING -- all our guests were raving about it, and the cake was spectacular: beautiful and delicious. We are still getting thankyous from friends and everyone without fail mentions how wonderful the food was.

There aren't enough superlatives in the English language to describe the professionalism and service provided by Chez Alice Catering Company. Kelly Hamdan and Jean Butcher are the best of the best: efficient, attentive, patient, kind, accomodating, flexible, sensitive, supportive, responsive, and utterly professional. They attend to every last detail with the utmost care, easing the bride's mind, because they truly care about their clients. The food was outstanding: the guests at our wedding couldn't stop raving about how delicious it was. The cake was incredible: beautiful and fabulously tasty! The venue looked beautiful, thanks to Kelly and Jean's amazing attention to detail: they really understood what I had envisioned my wedding to be and executed it flawlessly. On a personal level, you would be hard-pressed to find two more kind, patient, and supportive wedding professionals: Kelly and Jean will walk you through every step of the process, supporting you when you need to be supported and advising you when advice is needed, ultimately resulting in a seamless wedding day that you will remember for the rest of your life. My wedding would not have been half as amazing as it was without the incredible hard work and dedication of Kelly, Jean, Janice, and the rest of the wonderful Chez Alice staff. Five stars!!!!! Any bride searching for outstanding and elegant wedding service - look no further! It doesn't get any better than Chez Alice!

Tanya

Kelly, Jean, and all the servers were absolutely wonderful to work with. Many of my guests commented on the attentive service. Everyone was very professional and all the details were handled flawlessly. I did not even realize there was an issue with some of the rental equipment til after the fact, as Jean handled the issue discreetly. I would highly recommend Chez Alice Catering Co. to anyone!

Sue Ann

We received truly professional service from Chez Alice on our wedding day. I really have to single out Jean, their wedding coordinator. I casually mentioned in an e-mail that the groom and I were going to be at the venue one day and she called up the venue manager to find out what time we'd be there just so she could have an impromptu meeting with us. And it turned out to be a very important meeting, clearing up previous misunderstandings and working out new details. And when the day arrived, everything was exactly as we wanted it. Our own appetites were somewhat limited due to wedding excitement, but our guests tell us the food was good and the cake was excellent.

Kelly and Jean, thank you so much for an outstanding event! Our guests told us it was the best rehearsal dinner they had ever attended! The food was delicious - from the terrific pulled pork and chicken (loved the sauces) and the side dishes too (my mom loved the fresh tomatoes especially). Best of all was the amazing cake (we are still enjoying the leftover pieces!). Your servers were perfectly professional and, and the set-up inside and on the terraces was truly beautiful. Working with you was such a pleasure, and it made a truly wonderful night for our kids. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Chez Alice exceeded all of my expectations for the catering at my wedding reception at Prallsville Mills. Every bit of food was amazingly scrumptious. For the cocktail hour, they prepared a stunning spread of BBQ’ed clams, shrimp, chicken and passed appetizers including lobster rolls, quiche, and deviled eggs. For dinner, there was a buffet of roast beef, chicken and eggplant rollatini with fresh vegetables, orzo and garlic mashed potatoes to accompany it. Our guests gave the food nothing but rave reviews. We received compliment after compliment about how delicious the food was and how our guests thoroughly enjoyed every bit of what they ate. And, even beyond the food, Kelly Hamden and Jean Butcher at Chez Alice were tremendously helpful in the months prior to the wedding. They had valuable insight and advice on many aspects of the ceremony and reception. Kelly and Jean are truly masters at their trade. They thoughtfully listened to my concerns and were constantly helping me brainstorm and strategize on how to make it the most enjoyable and beautiful day possible. After the wedding and reception, I marveled to myself about how I so successfully planned an event that so many different people genuinely enjoyed. I really was giving myself too much credit, though. The real truth is that Chez Alice perfectly orchestrated my big day with just a little bit of input from me. They were so wonderful to work with and are such talented caterers. I enthusiastically recommend their services.

I loved the services provided by Chez Alice, beginning with our meeting with Kelly in her Princeton cafe, to the meeting with her at Brillman's, to the excellent tasting where I met Jean, to the FABULOUS appetizers, dinner and desserts! Everyone loved the food- I was given compliments all night by my guests!

Our favorite appetizers were the strawberry soup (which my husband was skeptical about- but boy did he change his mind once he tasted it), the brie and fruit tartletts and the salmon spoon. Apparently the create your own mu-shu was a serious hit because it was all gone by the time we made it to cocktail hour!

We also loved the beef wellington- which my husband specifically wanted and I tried for the first time- Fantastic!

And last but certainly not least- the gorgeous wedding cake! We served some the next morning to the guests that stayed over at the Marriott! I can't wait until our first anniversary when we can finish the cake top!

I want to especially thank Kelly and Jean for working so hard on the night of our wedding! Kelly- you were there super late making sure everything was perfect, and Jean, you were so attentive to making sure my husband and I got anything and everything we needed- you really made us feel like V.I.P's!!!

Thank you to you and all of your staff! We had a fabulous wedding!!!

Love,

Kate & Jon Godin

Jean and Kelly were wonderful to work with! They couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful - (in contrast to the owners of the Inn where the reception was held) - They saved the day! Would love to work with them again.

Mary R.

As mother of the bride, I was very impressed by how much the staff cared and took the time to make our daughter special day so wonderful!

I was thoroughly pleased with my decision to hire Chez Alice for a post wedding brunch that I was hosting in Skillman, NJ. Kelly Hamdan handled all of the specifics for me and was even there to supervise the event. Chef Christopher did a wonderful job. His made-to-order omelets, hot off the griddle waffles, and assortment of fruits, muffins and pastries were delicious. The servers were both pleasant and efficient and my guests raved about the brunch from start to finish. I wouldn't hesitate in hiring Chez Alice again in the future.

First - the food was great! We wanted to have a Mediterranean menu for a cocktail-style party (no sit-down). They worked with us to create a great menu. Also, Dawn, who was our planner was awesome! She knows what she is doing! She helped us pick out all the tables, chairs, plates, and all that stuff. And on the wedding day she was so amazing. She brought us water when we looked hot and just took care of everything. I had no worries at all on my wedding day. And the cake was delish!!!!!

Jerseygirl

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. Both of you and your staff did a fantastic job, before and after the reception. Everyone is still talking about the food! Word hit the streets of Newtown that very nite about how great it was. Everything was just the way I wanted it, the raw bar was a definite hit, and the butlered hors d’oeuvres never stopped. Frank & I have said more than a dozen times how we would love to redo the whole event. You made the most happiest day of my life a dream. You did all the work, with smiles on your faces and always polite and calm. You will always come highly recommended by us.

Frank & Dot

Our company planned a “Grand Opening Celebration” and when our original caterer canceled we were recommended to call Chez Alice. In the remaining six days Chez Alice saved our entire event. They made arrangements for rental, bar, flowers, ice sculptures and a piano player. Everything was exquisite, we can’t count the number of compliments we received about our white glove service and delicious menu, even six months after the fact we still receive praise. Chez Alice is highly recommended by us for the understanding, dependability, presentation and quality.

I wanted to express my appreciation for the professional manner in which you handled my husband’s 70th birthday party. All the guests raved about the food and the lovely way it was presented. Your suggestions of the type and the amounts were certainly a plus. The server did a marvelous job under trying conditions.
