Nitro Dessert Station- Highly Recommend!

We used Polonia Catering for their Nitro Dessert Station. Instead of a dessert table, we did ice cream sundaes. That is all our families kept talking about- how cool the Ice Cream station was!

It was one of my favorite treats of the night!

When we went for our tasting at Polonia, they served us at a set and clothed table. Very nice. Also, Parmesan & Garlic Roasted Potatoes are totally awesome! Salad looked lovely. The crew did a fine job setting up, keeping the food plentiful, and putting the food away.

It was very important to us, when we were planning our wedding, that the food be fantastic. After our tasting at Polonia, we knew they were the best choice. Everything we tried was delicious! It was hard to choose just a couple entrees, but we ended up going with the short rib,... Read More wild rice stuffed chicken, and pasta for our guests to choose from. Polonia provided all the linens we needed, as well as the china settings, and serving staff. We were very appreciative that they accommodated a "secret dinner" that we, the bride and groom, had immediately after our ceremony; especially that they saved us appetizers from cocktail hour! The short ribs were delicious, the chicken was delicious, and we received so many compliments from our guests about how much they enjoyed their dinner. Polonia was also very accommodating for a few of our guests who have dietary restrictions and needed special gluten-free meals - we received rave reviews on those! We also chose to have a Sweets Table that included macarons, cream puffs, mini cheesecakes, brownies, and cookies - all to die for! We will definitely be using Polonia again for any future catered events!

My son and daughter in law wedding was so amazing that it is hard for me to put into words! Polonia Catering made the difference! Brian, the owner, gives one on one attention to his customers, everything is extremely professional and your guest will be in awe at the food they... Read More are eating. We have used Polonia for so many things in the past, celebrations from 25 to over 500 and we have never been disappointed. Something as simple as a lunch for my daughter dance team to holiday party for 500 employees (all three shifts) is seamless for this company. There were so many things that we would have left out or spent additional money on, but our initial meeting with Brian, he found us savings. Brian also customized the package so we were able to get what we wanted for the guest, he helped with the color scheme, and provided the little things. The set up and the clean up, we didn't even know it was happening, his team was in and out that quick. There was even follow up after the wedding to make sure it was exactly what we expected. I think what makes Polonia Catering stand out is that they are family owned, they know what the expectation is, you actually feel like part of their family. You cannot go wrong with Polonia Catering.

Incredible Service & Food for Bride on a Budget

Reviewed on 11/11/2015 Kaitlin F

As a bride-on-a-budget (under $15k for EVERYTHING for the wedding), it was important for me to determine the most important aspects of the wedding which deserved the most investment. My two choices for that were catering and photography. We had a unique, small wedding of 75... Read More guests on a rooftop in Chicago and hosted a cocktail style reception. All of our catered food was passed hors d'oeuvres. We chose simple foods (sliders, grilled cheese, quesadillas, mini cheese pizzas, etc.) and my favourite was the BBQ pulled pork on a corn fritter. I wouldn't say the food 'blew my mind' but it satisfied our classic tastes and I was more concerned about the quality of the cupcakes- which were purchased from a separate bakery. The service of the catering staff from Polonia was above and beyond my expectations. The catering staff at my wedding was incredibly friendly and helpful in every way possible. I couldn't have asked for a more warm and friendly crew. I also rented twenty white folding chairs, five cabaret cocktail tables, and five tall boy tables along with tablecloths and sashes chosen from a wide range of color options so that the ones I got matched my wedding colors perfectly! The staff arrived plenty early to get it all set up exactly where and how we wanted it and they did it all with a smile. My entire experience with Polonia was extremely positive and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for great service at a great price.
