The dinner was absolutely fabulous! Everyone raved about the food and cheese platter! Janice was such a delight and provided impeccable service! I will certainly keep you in mind for any future events at Princeton or at my home. Thanks so much for everything!
This was not an easy venue to have a wedding. Add to this, the weather was not very good. Outside wedding at 50 degrees, is a challenge. Chez Alice made it work. Working in what I would call not ideal catering conditions, their team gave us a great wedding. They deserve 10 stars for flexibility.
Hi Jean, What can I say; the rehearsal dinner met our expectations and went beyond. It was so nice, all went smoothly and everyone enjoyed the food, surroundings and all that went into such a terrific party. Your staff was so friendly and accommodating, just can't say enough! Thank you for giving us such a great celebration, it was a special evening.

The food, the service, the clean up - perfection! Everyone told me how great the food was. It was perfect! They mixed the china so it really did look like Grandma’s house and the family style was perfect! The service could not have been better. The cocktail hour had to be relocated to a barn area and they took it in stride - the rain created mud and the entire staff helped to spread hay to keep people out of the mud. The staff was never intrusive - they were there when they were needed and anticipated every desire we had. The food was perfection and plenty of food for the guests - they replenished the sides frequently and I heard when one guest - who had been shuttling people to the reception site asked if there was another entree available because it was just so good and after all his work he was hungry again they provided it without even blinking. Everything was perfect - Kelly is GREAT and Jean is wonderful - they had a lot of curveballs to set this up and they met each one with grace and saw it to a wonderful, glorious celebration. The wedding cake was the best I've ever tasted. We had a chef as a guest and even he said the cake was the best he'd ever had at a wedding. Thank you Chez Alice - everyone there!
Kelly is fantastic and great to work with. She was super helpful with our menu planning and really understood what we were going for in terms of serving (open stations).
The food is AMAZING!!!! Everyone kept talking about how fun and delicious every item was. Amanda was our wedding coordinator and I cannot express how fabulous she is. Truly an amazing person. From emails, to phone calls and texts she was always there to answer a question, go over an idea or thought, and even to lend an ear when I had wedding stress. I knew on the day of our wedding everything was in good hands and I had not a worry in mind. When we arrived at the reception, Amanda invited us into the ballroom to view and take in the room. It was a beautiful moment to breathe and enjoy a few quiet moments as a brand new Mr & Mrs. She shortly came back with drinks and a couple plates of cocktail hour goodies for us to indulge in, just he and I. I have to say, marrying my love was the best part of my day, followed by that quiet moment, thanks to Amanda. The room was also decorated beautifully.... she really brought my vision to life. Everyone at Chez Alice is amazingly fantastic! I could go on and on (obviously)!!!!
Check them out, you'll fall in love at first bite and it just gets better.
Amazing...everything I had intuitively felt about Chez Alice from the moment they answered the phone and congratulated me on the recent engagement (the first vendor to do so!). They were in constant communication about the details, my concerns and most importantly, my high emotions surrounding our wedding. The day was amazing and I am clear that it is because of Chez Alice! Thank you!!!! People are still talking about it!!!
Jean and Kelly were the most loving and amazing people. They made my wedding planning experience very enjoyable... The food tasted amazing. It was honestly the best "wedding" food I've ever had. I will definitely use them again for another event.
Not sure what else to say that hasn't already been said about the amazing team at Chez Alice. We hired Chez Alice to cater our wedding at a very rustic venue. The food was absolutely delicious. But what really set them apart was the service the day of. Chez Alice's team really knew how to deal with the surprises and things we didn't account for. The event went seamlessly, and one of the most positive experiences of our wedding planning process. Don't hesitate to hire Chez Alice. True professionals.
Chez Alice was great!! I felt at ease and confident that the wedding would turn out great from the moment that I first contacted them. Amanda was our event coordinator and I really cannot say enough great things about her. She was friendly, easy to talk to, listened to everything I wanted and was very responsive. I like to be in control and it sometimes makes me nervous to hand over the reins to someone, but for our wedding, I was not worried or stressed AT ALL. I knew she understood my vision and would execute it perfectly - and she did!! I walked into the venue and was so excited that it turned out even better than I had imagined. Chez Alice helped me through every step of the way. They went above and beyond typical catering services to make sure that our day went perfectly. The staff was great, and my guests loved their bartenders! They had such a great time chatting with them. And of course, last but not least, the food was delicious!! We got so many compliments on how yummy everything was. I was definitely a bride on a budget and the food and cake were amazing. I would definitely recommend this company to friends or use them again in the future. Thanks again Chez Alice!
Thanks to everyone at Chez Alice, especially Jean and Kelly, my wedding was filled with wonderful (and tasty) moments. Everyone is STILL talking about the food (and I am really missing the mashed potato bar)! Thanks to Chez Alice and their eye for organization, the reception venue was transformed into an ethereal, magical place where our guests were able to relax, eat, drink and be merry. As a bride, you never get to enjoy your food. But this wasn't so with Chez Alice. I was being checked on constantly to make sure I ate enough and I was taking time to enjoy my wedding. I am so grateful to them for providing me with a reality that went beyond my early bridal visions.
One of the most important things to us when it came to planning our wedding was that our guests enjoy themselves - that they eat a great meal in a great atmosphere. It wasn't just the food that was wonderful though! Kelly worked tirelessly with us on the menu to customize it to our personal preferences and budget. Amanda, the day of coordinator took amazing care of us, was always available for anything we needed, went out of her way to help us, and found us amazing vendors for things like music, linens, and alcohol. We had a lot of DIY decorations and details for the event, and Amanda took care of making the Elk's Lodge look beautiful, going above and beyond to arrange everything we handed off to her to look absolutely beautiful. Our day was perfect, and it was only perfect because of how much Chez Alice and Amanda did for us. We can't wait for an excuse to use them again!
Everything went very well. Starting with our meeting with Kelly, she was more than willing to make Kristie and John's vegetarian wedding come true. Adjustments that were made went smoothly. Amanda and Kara were extremely helpful and friendly throughout the process. The waitstaff and Kara did a beautiful job of setting up and making sure our guests were attended to. Excellent!! What more is there to say?
I found this caterer to be very easy to work with, especially since I was planning this from out of the state. In addition we needed to coordinate with the groom's family as well as the bride and groom. Much of my part was handled by e-mail in a very timely manner. The wedding was beautiful, and the food - delicious.
Picking a caterer was no small decision for us. First, we were planning everything from across the country, and would only be able to meet in person once before the date, and second, my husband is severely gluten intolerant, so we needed to be sure he would get through the big day without worrying about the food. After reading reviews, we contacted Chez Alice, and were extremely pleased to find we could create a menu from scratch, and note the need for gluten free options for the two of us, all while keeping a budget in mind. Jean helped us through the entire process, from picking out rentals to figuring out the final floorplan, and even contacted our other vendors (cupcake baker, DJ, etc) to make sure they did not have any questions or specific needs. And when the day finally came, we were blown away with the exceptional waitstaff, and how attentive they were to the needs of all the guests. Particularly for the two of us- bringing hors d'oeuvres, drinks, and food to the table, which was the only reason we had time to eat!
Chez Alice made our day amazing. Kelly helped us create a unique menu that was totally delicious and completely “us”. She was very flexible and allowed us to do everything we wanted. On our wedding day, the food was delicious, prompt, and abundant. No one was left waiting for food, and everything everyone had was delicious. Also, our wedding cake was absolutely stunning. It was a chocolate cake with a raspberry filling, AMAZING! Jean helped coordinate many things; she was great throughout the process and really made our lives easier. On the day of, she was constantly keeping a pulse of things to make sure all of our guests were happy. I would recommend Chez Alice!
As mother of the bride, I was very impressed by how much the staff cared and took the time to make our daughter's 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!!!!!
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 night 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 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.

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.
The food was fabulous,( no surprise there! ). Your staff was both professional & friendly, which many of our quests commented upon. The recommendations you gave for rental company, flowers and DJ couldn’t have been better. Everything came together in a first class way.

We would like to thank you for doing such a great job and making our wedding wonderful. Everyone raved about the food.

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.
Thank you for helping to make our christening a huge success. The food was wonderful and the server was fabulous! I will certainly recommend you to all of our friends.
I wanted to tell you how wonderful your catering services were. The food was delicious, the presentation great and the server was a true professional.
