Marylyn was an absolute miracle in helping us sort through the hurdles of planning our wedding! We live in Florida and held our wedding in CT and she spent so much time with me, over email and phone to work out every detail, she went well beyond what I expected of a catering service to ensure we had everything we needed. We got married on the first Saturday of fall and so Marylyn and her team had a busy weekend, so she had Neal, her partner take care of our party. While I'm disappointed I didn't get to actually meet Marylyn and give her an enormous, grateful hug, Neal was patient and thorough, and did a fantastic job. We had just been through hurricane Irma in Florida, so our plans and setup were chaotic/last-minute, but Neal and his team at the venue did a wonderful job catering to our late adjustments. EVERYONE came up to our table to tell us the menu options and food was fantastic. Marylyn, along with my (the bride's), experience in food service, helped us create an unusual menu of delicious selections. The cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres were excellent! We highly recommend the lamb chops with mint sauce, everybody went crazy on those! We had a lovely cookie bar next to our cake and the cookies were excellent as well. All in all, our wedding was a complete success and everyone had a great time. We're so happy we found Juste Hors D'oeuvres and we're over the moon about our special day being perfect and quirky like us. Thank you Marylyn, Neal, her team of caterers, her rental partner William and everyone who helped make our day so special. We are eternally grateful!

I found Bacco Caterers on Thumbtack. I was impressed with the five stars and the reviews, so I contacted Chef Lauren to begin to see if she was the caterer for us—and was she ever! Joyce and I wanted to include our friends and family in our marriage anniversary celebration in our Brooklyn home. We are novice Open House hosts and Lauren advised us re details we would never have thought of, including in our menu selections. Her staff, chef Amanda and sous chef Laura, created freshly made hors d’hoeuvres in our kitchen as the party occurred, superb finger food that was varied, interesting, and delicious! People, including us, loved it. The servers Karen, Tony, and Kevin, and bartender Elroy were unobtrusively attentive and friendly to our guests. Our party took place on two floors and the yard, and the staff kept the food appearing and the empty glasses disappearing with seeming effortlessness. Many guests commented on how comfortable they made everyone feel, contributing to the general sense of joyousness. In spite of our request for no gifts, or perhaps because of it, many of our 50 guests brought flowers. As soon as I was handed the bouquets, Tony would appear and would arrange them in vases I had directed him to when flowers first arrived. I was free during the whole party to visit with my friends and family. I, who am not a party-person, enjoyed myself fully during this celebration, and I am grateful to Chef Lauren and her staff for the many ways (including a fantastic clean-up) they helped make that possible.

The food Chef Wayne provided was phenomenal!! We had a 40th party with 26 guests, which at the last minute became 27 guests. Chef Wayne had no problems adjusting to the unexpected guest and last minute course changes by our guests. Everyone commented on how excellent the food was and how nicely everything was plated. One note though, the Chef did run later than expected because he was stuck in traffic and coming from another event. Also, the wait staff, who were very nice and very accommodating, seemed a bit inexperienced, but all in all a very very excellent meal. I am very happy I hired Chef Wayne!!

We had an event for 140 people at Lighthouse Point Last Night, and hired Rich and his team. Right from the moment he got in contact with us, Rich was super responsive and clear. He helped us work through what our needs would be and offered to take care of many of the little details related to the bar that you never think of but that make it very special. And, to boot, he was a great bartender and presence at the event. Warm service, great attitude, and overall a great guy to work with. Thanks, Rich!

You could do yourself a big favor and look no further for a caterer for any event, I imagine, big or small. We had a 30-person outdoor party planned, then thunderstorms, so we had a 30-person indoor party planned, and Adolfo anticipated the issues, set everything up beautifully, cooked excellent food, gave our guests a night they will remember. One important note: Adolfo came to our site days before, free of charge, which was probably an hour-plus journey for him. It was important to him that we agree on everything before he began- and when he arrived on the day of the party he just went to work, everything was settled except for the rain plan, which he solved in minutes. He brought his own staff, he did his own set up and take down. The stress level for us: zero. We just enjoyed the party knowing we were in excellent hands. If there were a six star, or eight star, or ten star rating on this site I would happily provide that feedback. I could not recommend more highly.

My experience was EXCEPTIONAL!! I believe that 35 guest at the surprise 30th birthday party would agree. The compliments about the food and staff providing the services were endless...parting words for many as they left the event. I am a true critic when it comes to taste, presentation, and professionalism.It was perfect. Every need was met with a smile and eagerness to assist in creating a magical evening. For the guest of honor it was "the best birthday ever." For the guest, it was a delightful experience prompting multiple request for the "caterers" information! I don't think Nate has it in his DNA to disappoint.

Festive Food Caterers was the best choice that i made for my dad's surprise 60th birthday. From the initial conversation that I had with Chef Michel he made it very comfortable, and really was engaged in the process. He did an AMAZING before and the day of the event as well. He was kind, professional, and truly made it feel like a family event. The guests all raved about the food, as well as, how courteous and respectful FFC staff were. This was the best decision, and know for sure that in the future i will use Festive Food Caterers for events moving forward. To add, I am skeptical about finding people online, but this was truly the best decision. I can't imagine using someone else for this event. Chef Michel you are truly amazing, and were a godsend for this event. Keep up the amazing work that you do!

If you’re a perfectionist that wants to have everything the top of the line and elegant at your party Sunflowers Catering and Event Planning is for you. Laura's attention to detail and honoring your special requests is impeccable. Laura can cook anything from appetizer finger foods to Elaborate Meals including Vegan and gluten free. Everything she prepared for my party was compliment by all my guests. The braised short ribs melted in our mouths, the Mediterranean Pasta got rave reviews, and the mini cheese burgers we so delicious you had to have three or four. I can't forget to mention that her desserts are decadent. My person favorite was her honey custard in a homemade pecan filo cups, it’s truly out of this world. Great food, friendly attentive support staff and just amazing to work with so I could enjoy my company worry free.

Tara is fantastic! She catered an event for me at the Anthropologie Store in Short Hills. From start to finish she was extremely professional. She suggested menu items based on my theme for the event and then customized them for our esthetic. Not only did everything look good it tasted amazing. Our customers in Short HIlls, NJ have a very sophisticated palette and they raved about the food. I would certainly use Tara again for any event we would have in the store big or small. She is a talented chef, professional and easy to work with. Jennifer Burnley, Personal Stylist and Event Planner, Anthropologie

It was a pleasure to work with Chef Dave and his staff, Danielle who tended bar and Lawrence who did general assist. They were prompt and did a fantastic job both setting up and cleaning up everything. Chef Dave's food is outstanding! I got so many compliments on the food and presentation - all my guests were so impressed. The sliced sirloin steak was juicy and tender; the salmon was moist and tasty; and the eggplant parmigiana was incredible - best I've ever had! The mini meatballs and lobster rolls were a big hit, too. AND to finish off the buffet meal, Chef Dave's chocolate chip cookies were scrumptious! I really enjoyed having Chef Dave cater my special event - he was professional, accommodating, an all-around great guy. I highly recommend him!

We had a wonderful experience with Anne and First Bite Catering. We held a wine tasting and spanish dinner party for 25 guests. Anne was extremely responsive and helpful during the planning process. She was open to handling many details over and above the food prep and presentation. That was very helpful. And the food was wonderful! My guests raved about it. She and her staff were punctual and professional on the night of the event and cleaned up everything so I could enjoy the party and guests. I highly recommend First Bite and I will definitely hire them again. Thanks Anne!

My pal and I hired Kendall and Gerry to cater our husbands' joint 50th birthday party in Bedford in 2008, to rave reviews from guests. They've since catered two graduation parties for me and another 50th for a friend. Such wonderful attention to detail, from designing signature cocktails to selecting a personalized menu with the freshest locally sourced food. They make sure that not only the guest of honor and guests had a good time, but the hosts as well. Most impressive to me--Kendall joined her staff in surprising our son at his ballgame themed graduation party wearing Yankees tees and caps--despite being Red Sox fans themselves. :-) Every event they've catered has been lovely from start to finish. I cannot recommend highly enough!

We absolutely LOVED everything about our experience with Outlaw BBQ as they catered our wedding. They went above and beyond when it came to feeding our guests and everything was absolutely delicious. They even made a tray of gluten free macaroni and cheese for us based on just us asking which of our dishes were gluten free for one of our guests, and she nearly cried with excitement--she hadn't had mac and cheese in years. Communicating with Rob was always easy and swift too. The catering they provided definitely was one of the major factors in our wedding celebration being a huge success. AND THE HAWAIIAN MEATBALLS!!! If all I ever ate again was their barbecue chicken, meatballs, and macaroni and cheese I would be happy. They brought their smoker on site and our guests could smell the delicious barbecue before our ceremony even started. We can't recommend Outlaw BBQ enough!!!

It was an amazing experience having Milt, Janet and their crew as our caterers. They arrived early to set up and be prepared for our guest. The food was AMAZING!!!! I cannot get over their stuffed mushrooms, those delicious little chicken quesadilla, OMG the shrimp cocktail...I can sit here and name every single dish we ordered and tell the world what an amazing experience it was for my taste buds and my guest will say the same. I will continue to work with Studio Event Staffing for all my future events. Not only were they professional, they were very friendly and warm--they have an awesome team put together!!
