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.

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.

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.

We have a 2 year old and had friends coming in from out of town with a 1 year old and we wanted to have a restaurant quality meal at home without the hassle of getting babysitters and doing the cooking and cleaning ourselves. Chef Aless and her team delivered a dream experience at home with amazing food and impeccable service. We were able to enjoy the evening with our friends and I am pretty sure the kitchen was cleaner when they finished then when the meal preparation started. We will definitely be enlisting her services again! Highly recommend!

Chef Stenneth Grant was amazing. I asked for an Italian meal, and he made some great suggestions to add some flare to courses for our meal. Everything had his own spin on it, but it really worked amazingly! I've never had an Italian meal like this, and will have a hard time finding it again in any restaurant. He was an absolute pro. He came in time, went right to work with all his our cooking tools and treated us with amazing service. From early drinks (he made us some amazing rum punch), antipasto, appetizers, salad, pasta and filet steak. Oh and also desert! It was all amazing, nice portions and every bite was delicious. He also cleaned up the kitchen and washed out plates, all before we finished desert. You wouldn't have known anyone had cooked in the kitchen. Thank you Chef Stenneth!

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.

Adrianne did a phenomenal job catering our daughter's baptism. Her food was delicious and the service was outstanding. She decorated the buffet table beautifully and went out of her way to purchase decorations for our theme. She also went above and beyond by creating the floor plan and dropping it off at the hall. She was punctual and set up and cleaned up. Adrianne is a true professional who cares about her work. We would use her again in a heartbeat. The food was so delicious that I am tempted to create an occasion just so I can taste it again!

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.

Rob did an excellent job catering our black tie wedding! He was extremely professional and organized and was really thoughtful in helping us achieve the type of wedding catering we wanted. Rob is very humble about his background in the catering business, but you can tell he is very well experienced in the catering industry. We loved him so much that we hired him for our wedding brunch the day after the wedding as well. He does not advertise enough his ability to do all types of weddings from casual to high end. I would highly recommend Rob to anyone else thinking of doing a wedding. Weddings can be very stressful but Rob had the right staff and coordination to pull everything we needed him for off well!

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.

We have used Maureen's services on several occasions and she is always a pleasure to have come help us! We've had her prepare several dishes for a dinner party as well as prepare meals for an entire week. On very busy weeks for us as working parents with kids it is quite a relief to not have to figure out dinner. All of the dishes are excellent, even her salad made me realize how little effort I was putting into my own creations.
