Bacco Catered Events is the best in the business. If you are thinking about hiring a chef for a catered party please stop wasting your time and just go with these outstanding professionals who are a joy to work with and make delicious food. I used them for the first time a few weeks ago (14 June) for an important business dinner and everything from planning a menu to clean up was expedient, professional and the food was - according to every guest - superb! In addition to world class cuisine - They even get the little things right (knowing the VIPs and serving them first, remembering drink preferences, monitoring supplies etc). Every single guest commented on the delicious food and excellent service. I entertain often personally and professionally and this was a stand out experience which ensures I will be a repeat guest. Chef Lauren was very accommodating about a couple of specific dietary restrictions and those folks were also delighted with the outcome - they felt they really had a meal customized for them. Chef Lauren and the servers really worked as a team for a flawless experience. I can not recommend this service highly enough.

Food was delicious! Wayne was great from the beginning to the end of the planning and actual dinner. His food and service were outstanding. He pays attention to detail and delivered exactly what I requested. We had a 5 star restaurant experience right in our dining room.

Tamara did an amazing job at our co-ed baby shower. We live in a NY apartment and so Tamara had to prepare in a NY-sized kitchen. The preparation and delivery was flawless and the food was delicious. At the end, she cleaned up within a half hour and left the kitchen spotless. Tamara makes sure you have zero stress when it comes to the food (and drinks if you choose!).

Do you want to know the definition of Excellence? Hire Luisa c/o De Cicco's Event Planning! I have never worked with a more professional, friendly company. Luisa has a way of catering to her client's and making them feel like they're at the top of her priority list. If you need her, drop her an E-mail and she IMMEDIATELY gets back to you. Need a personal Chef to teach you how to cook? Luisa can connect you with top of the line quality professional's that KNOW what they're doing in the kitchen. I'm currently taking lesson's from her Chef and I went from being a novice who's food was either bland, burnt and completely un-edible, to a person who can now chop, dice and make a meal so good, my family calls me asking me to cook for them again. Luisa and her staff are so friendly, so welcoming and very attentive to the needs of the client. Luisa has done a fine job in picking her staff and I’m extremely happy I hired her company because it was worth every penny.

I hired Natwerks Catering to prepare and cook the food for my Christmas Eve party at my home. The food preparation was well thought out and executed to perfection. My guests went home happy and looking forward to my next event because they know I will be hiring Chef Nate and Natwerks Catering again.

Chef Plum cooked an amazing dinner on-site for 15 friends in Southampton. He arrived on time, brought everything we needed and even improvised the menu based on my last minute suggestions. The food was delicious and incorporated all the local fall flavors. To top it off, Chef Plum and his team even cleaned the kitchen and packaged up the leftovers. He was very accommodative with my budget as well and offered more for less than some of the other chefs in the area. All in all, this was the perfect way to prepare a casual meal for a big group of friends.

My wife and I eloped in Paris, and were looking to plan a reception for friends and family with a French theme. After trading a few messages on Thumbtack, Laura came to our home with a selection of French appetizers. With only a few suggestions from us, Laura did some research and prepared a few French dishes for a tasting while we discussing a plan for the party. We talked menu, logistics and pricing while tasting Laura's fantastic creations. We went with Laura because she shared our enthusiasm for the French theme and because she has a great attention to detail. Since we didn't plan our reception before eloping, we only had a few weeks to put everything together. Laura was instrumental in helping us plan our party for ~140 guests on such short notice. She immediately put us in touch with a rental company and prepared a list of necessary items for us to order. Laura and her staff showed up ~2 hours before the start of cocktail hour. They set up all of the tables according to our floor plan and stocked three full bars. Because of her planning and her helpful, organized and polite staff, cocktail hour and dinner went off without a hitch. The guests raved about Laura's French appetizers, entrees and desserts. After supervising the food preparation throughout the night, Laura herself came out to the dessert station to make crepes hot-to-order for our guests. This was such a nice added touch and really highlights Laura's dedication to her craft. I have full confidence that Laura can prepare any menu and any dish. She is a talented chef and, with her staff, she runs a flawless party. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her for any event, and I'd especially recommend Laura if you have something specific in mind.

I would highly recommend Chef Stenneth. In addition to a great meal, he was very attentive and made sure everyone had the right meal (some people had some major dietary restrictions in my party of 5). I asked for some special wine as well and he delivered as promised. He is a true professional, and deserves all the stars available.

Chef David provided our family with a memorable Thanksgiving meal that was carefully crafted and perfectly executed. 20 guests, a mix of adults and children, enjoyed classic dishes like turkey and mashed potatoes as well as unique tastes like crab crake. Enough gushing from me... here are the 3 most important things I want future clients to know: 1) Chef David is a supreme professional - Super responsive up to the minute of delivery (and even after the meal), provided high quality product and was a general pleasure to work with. 2) Delicious down to the smallest detail - Not only were the apps, entrees and sides packed with deep flavor but the cranberry sauce and salad dressing received several compliments too. The crab cake was a standout but the entire meal was excellent. 3) Wash, Rinse, Repeat - We viewed catering Thanksgiving as a high stakes gamble. Chef David outperformed on all aspects and we plan to use his expertise again in the future.

Chef Stef is a professional Culinary Chef that teaches you step by step how to prepare different recipes. Every two weeks it's a different menu. He provides you with all the food to cook and all the utensils and dishes you need to prepare a wonderful meal. It's always a fun group and we love cooking together. His knowledge about the different products, where there from, where you can buy them and how healthy they are, is very educational. He sometimes pairs the recipes you have prepared with a tasting of different wines or beers of different regions depending on which recipe you are cooking that day. Chef Stef also provides you with containers to take whatever Recipes you have cooked home for your family and children to enjoy. I highly recommend going to Chef Stef cooking classes.

Ron and his staff did a great job catering our event. From working to create an individualized menu with various food restrictions to setting and cleaning up very efficiently. He found all of my plates and silverware before I could even tell him and was very prepared from the start. The food was delicious and definitely what we were looking for in our special New Years Eve menu. The service was wonderful. Thank you Ron for making this such a special event for our family.

Excellent experience. Chef Nirva cooked a three course meal, Mediterranean inspired, for my birthday for myself and 9 guests. She made the hummus from scratch and the lamb meatballs were my favorite. The main course was a light yet flavorful rosemary chicken, followed by a chocolate dessert. Chef not only presented the dishes just like at a restaurant, but she explained to everyone how she made the dishes. Thanks so much for making my birthday a great experience!

From beginning to end, Claudia went above and beyond to ensure our wedding experience was amazing. Our first interaction with Claudia was a wonderful meal she prepared for the two of us; Salmon and Coq au vin. The food was absolutely perfect, however it was Claudia’s personality that won us over. From day one Claudia worked hard to ensure we had everything we would need for our wedding to go smoothly. She sat down with us and went through the wedding from start to finish and took extensive notes on where things would be placed at the venue (we had a lot of DIY items) so her team could set them up with ease. She also met with us at the equipment rental place, and made sure we rented everything we would need. Had she not been there we would have missed many, many items! She also ordered beverages for us through a separate vendor, from whom we received a nice discount! On the day before the wedding Claudia managed a problem with our equipment delivery for us while we were out at our rehearsal lunch - we didn’t even have to call them! Food: The food was just wonderful. The presentation, quality and preparation was like no other. Claudia was professionally trained and her food was fantastic. The appetizers during cocktail hour were passed on long trays that looked very classy. They were petit, well put together and tasted amazing. For dinner we had a great salad, which was wrapped in thinly cut cucumber slices. Very impressive. The next course was pasta, which stunned many guests. Finally, we had a choice of coq au vin, steak or a vegetarian option. We are food addicts and have very high standards and this food not only met but exceeded our expectations. Service: Like we were saying earlier, Claudia was a lot more than a caterer; she was like our wedding planner! She made sure the day went smoothly and worked with us ahead of time to determine where things would end up in the venue, the logistics of setting up, what we would need for her staff to set them up and she helped us plan for rain. Her staff were very professional and worked hard to keep the night running smoothly. Overall impression: We can’t go on enough about how satisfied we are with Claudia’s work. She really cares about her clients and went above and beyond to ensure our happiness on our special day. Thanks so much Claudia! We hope to work with you again in the future!!

Clarendon cuisines did my wedding reception last June. It was outdoors. Everything was perfect. Cocktail hour was food stations and it looked amazing. the chef did these hand carved fruit displays which I did not know he was going to do and it was a hit with my guests. Dinner was buffet and the food tasted amazing. I received great feedback from my guests. I'm so happy I used him.

Chef Jeffrey prepared a multi-course delicious Thanksgiving meal for 8 people at my home. Every meal item was well thought out and executed. The mashed potatoes were the most amazing I have ever tasted. He brought thoughtful appetizers, prepared amazing food and was courteous and professional. I would hands-down recommend him for any ever.
