 Chef Rey and his team were, hands-down, one of the best decisions we made at our wedding. My husband is a chef and REALLY cared about the quality of the food, as well as the dishes that were served. From the moment I spoke with Chef Rey and Vikki, they assured me that they would be able to make my husband’s vision come to life, from preparing a brand new lamb dish (we were the first couple to ever request lamb, so this was a new dish for them!) to making amazing appetizers. At the tasting, which they graciously did for us on a Sunday since we were from out of town, we knew from the very first bite that they would be our caterer. From that day forward, Chef Rey and Vikki have been an absolute delight to work with, using their experience and expertise to help us plan. Vikki captured all things logistical and was so detail-oriented, going over every part of the reception with us to ensure we had the perfect day. They even accommodated last minute details – surprising my brother and grandpa with a special milkshake, bringing out my husband’s surprise groom’s cake, and even making more cookies for our cookie table. Chef Rey is a blessing – he is both an artist with food and an incredibly kind-hearted person, which made working with him so joyous. The day of went perfectly, and the guests raved afterwards about the food and how delicious it was. We were so grateful to have Chef Rey’s Catering there because we felt like they were celebrating with us as friends, not just as our vendors. They are an excellent team, and we highly recommend their services – they are the best caterer around Pittsburgh! - Naomi Geara Lop

Rey Fernandez is indeed, the "real deal" and was committed to us as his clients. He fine-tuned every detail of our wedding meal, beginning with the initial meeting and culminating in a spread that was both elegant and affordable. Rey served our guests with a smile and a sincere desire to meet their every need. His expertise turned our simple wedding into a gala event, with a meal greatly enjoyed by us and our guests. -Mr & Mrs David Giesey (Married September 30, 2017)

Everything was awesome. Absolutely awesome. The service was perfect and the food was delicious. Everyone that I spoke to after the banquet really enjoyed the food. We will absolutely use your services in the future. Thank you. -Jamie

The catering was fantastic! From the first time I met the staff at the tasting and tried the food, I knew I picked the perfect caterer. Chef Rey did an amazing job. Everyone absolutely loved the food and told us throughout the night how good it was. It was truly delicious. We were able to have amazing food on our budget. Vicky did a great job making sure my venue looked perfect. They made this whole process so simple and easy for me. I did not have to worry about a thing. They were such an important part of what helped make my wedding reception perfect. I cannot say enough good things about them. I highly recommend them to anyone.

As I'm sure you know, bride and grooms don't get a whole lot of time to actually sit down and enjoy their meal. But the food I did get to taste was amazing and we heard all positive feedback from the guests. Everyone said how tender and delicious the meat was. Everything went off perfectly that night. I loved how we got our apps and meals plated to the table and didn't have to go through the buffet line, We received nothing but positive feedback and if we ever need a caterer again we will be sure to contact you and recommend you! :) Thanks again for everything!

 I live in FL and went by a friend who highly recommended Chef Rey. So glad I did!!! There is nothing that I can add that hasn't already been said. Every review is so true. Couldn't believe how easy you made this for me! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Only regret is that there is only 5 Stars for rating - I would give it 100 Stars if I could. 

 The Chef Rey and the manager, Vikki were so helpful and full of ideas. We sat around and discussed the wedding like a group of old friends. Needless to say, the actual event was perfect. The staff showed up and were so helpful with everything and they did a superb job of cleaning up. My husband's cousins are still talking about how delicious the ham was! If you want a professional caterer who actually cares about your wedding, go no further than "Chef Rey's Catering". -Laurie K

Awesome food it's the best! -Santa Marie Klingensmith

Chef Rey is an amazing person, chef and friend. His food is perfectly delicious and cooked with love. -John Z

Best night ever! Although it didn't start out that way. An ice storm caused some hiccups for the venue and the caterer. The venue (Renshaw Farms) lost power and had generators to overcome the power loss problem. They had heat and lights and the DJ was able to play the entire time with no problems. Chef Rey's catering cooks half a mile down from Renshaw Farms and they had no power. Luckily they had gas stoves and were still keen to cook everything perfectly. The food was amazing. And Rey & his staff were so friendly and helpful the whole night. I would not recommend anyone else. Chef Rey's Catering was absolutely the best! If you're planning a wedding, or any event, GIVE THEM A CALL! YOU WON'T REGRET IT! -Michelle P

I've been to many of Chef Rey's dinners and he puts out quite a spread. Tastes delicious. I can vouch he will do very well because he is very customer oriented. His prices are fair and his food is great. - Larry White

My fiance & I could not be any happier to have chosen Chef Rey's Catering for our upcoming wedding. We had a free food tasting where we were able to bring our parents. He prepared full size portions of the food we wanted to try (there was so much food!). He & Vikki then took the time to discuss the details of our reception. We are on a budget and there were more than willing to accommodate that. I would highly recommend using Chef Rey's Catering for your wedding. -Amanda
