Marylyn and Juste Hors D'Oeuvres is fabulous! She is everything that you want your wedding caterer to be. She was always very nice, very attentive to detail, easy to communicate with and highly professional. She and her staff were really wonderful throughout our whole event. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. Perhaps most importantly she was willing to work within our proposed budget. We cannot recommend her highly enough. You will not be disappointed.

I can not say enough great things about Rich Stein. From the moment he walked in, Rich and Paul Kane had a great energy and presence that added to the buzz of my wedding day. They were communicating and engaging. All of that would have been for nothing if the food was not good. The food was EXCELLENT. The eggplant rollatini was incredible and everyone talked about how good it was. The food was fresh and flavorful. I can't forget the broccoli rabe and sausage. Paul was great in that he put his hands to do whatever was needed to help, from appetizers to the ice to cake. I also want to throw in that, this being a backyard wedding not many people wanted this small affair but Rich took the job and made this small backyard wedding feel like a much larger wedding with the quality of food. Rich and Paul far surpassed any of the praise of previous reviews and I don't think this review can show how appreciative I am of Rich Stein for making my wedding day special. Thank you, Rich. Thank you, Paul.

We hired Nate to cater our wedding this June in Brooklyn. He was definitely willing to work with our budget and our needs and helped put together a great menu for us. He was also very friendly, punctual, and pleasant to work with. The service at the wedding was great, as was the food presentation and table settings, and the food was good, though not as good as what we had at the tasting (I guess to be expected when one is cooking for 80 people). There were definitely a few issues though, like not saving our cake for our 1st anniversary and throwing leftovers away after we asked them to be saved.

We would 100% recommend Festive Food Caterers to anyone looking for excellent food and even better service, at a great price! We hired Festive Food Caterers for our wedding with approximately 100 guests. Michel and his team are phenomenal! Michel consistently went out of his way to give us a delicious, polished menu within our price range. He was extremely communicative and offered flexible tastings leading up to our wedding. During the event, there were zero hiccups or problems and Michel and his team were meticulously preparred. On top of that, the food was absolutely amazing!! (Try the steak and chimichurri sauce!) Definitely consider Festive Food Caterers for whatever your event may be. They are fantastic!! (The food was so good we didn't have time to take photos before we ate it, but it looked and tasted delicious!)

I wanted to give a full throated endorsement to Laura and her excellent staff at Sunflowers Catering and Event Planning. My wife and I hired Laura on the good advice of a friend to cater our wedding party in the Brooklyn art district of DUMBO in the art gallery Smack Mellon. We could not be happier. First Laura was incredibly attentive and thorough making multiple site inspections ahead of the wedding and interfacing with the venue manager. Her preplanning and coordination was excellent. Laura runs a super tight ship and her staff were poised and on point. I grew up in the hospitality business on Martha’s Vineyard and I have catered many, many weddings. I know a well oiled machine when I see one and watching the hustle of the staff setting up ahead of the event immediately calmed my frayed wedding day nerves. I knew we were in excellent hands. Now the Food! The food was fantastic. We had a raw bar that people were raving about, the passed appetizers were delicious. It was a great feeling when dinner was served and word began to make it back to us that the guests were very happy and impressed. The cookies we asked for at the end of the night were also especially tasty. Our wedding came off like a charm, it was a great night and we owe a large part of it to Laura. I would recommend Sunflowers Catering without hesitation to anyone with an event to cater. Sincerely, Ryan Matta P.S. It is probably worth mentioning that they left the venue spotless.

Regina and her team were amazing! She catered a Bridal shower for me along with 5 other bridesmaid and the brides mom so you can imagine the amount of questions and wants we had! Regina was so patient and quick to respond. The day of was a gloomy day in NY with a race going on in the area but they delivered our vision beautifully!! And everyone loved the food and decor!! I would recommend 3rs to anyone looking for catering and party planning!!

FANTASTIC! We had Fatboysbbqbus cater our outdoor wedding yesterday (6/3/17) and everyone loved the food and the service of the staff. Fred is very professional with a great sense of humor ;) and made sure we had everything we wanted, he went above and beyond. The food, WELL.....the beef brisket was so tender it broke apart before you got the piece to your mouth and it wasn't dry!! The smoked turkey was delicious, not an overly smoked flavor, just enough (dip it in their homemade bbq sauce YUM) If you love mac cheese then Fatboys Smoked Gouda mac n cheese with bacon is a MUST....AMAZING! Hams & Hots, corn on the cob, macaroni salad and corn bread all delicious. My Husband and I have no complaints about anything with our dealing with Fatboysbbqbus, price was great especially for all the food you get. No one will go hungry. We wanted to do a backyard bbq wedding and have a great time with family and friends without all the fancy, dressing up, craziness of a traditional (expensive) wedding and it came perfect. Thank you Fatboysbbqbus!!

It was a pleasure to have Susan cater our daughters wedding. It was a destination wedding in Ct. She made us feel at ease with her professionalism and extensive knowledge of her culinary expertise. The service was impeccable.

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!!

The Outlaw BBQ company provided catering for our brewery wedding. They were very easy to work with and responsive leading up to the wedding. They welcomed us to sample all of their most popular dishes. They really made the event seem like a priority to their company and communicated that way with us and other vendors. The food was so good! Guests were raving about it, and although we as the bride and groom didn’t get to eat as much as we wanted to, all we ate was delicious. I would recommend their services to anyone looking for a casual, but high quality food option for any event.

I am currently working with Susan who will be catering a dinner reception for my wedding this June. I was referred to Susan by a coworker who had previously work with her and raved about how great her food is. I am so happy to have found her, she is very responsive and willing to listen to my concerns. I highly recommend Susan!

Working with Clayton and Kurt from Short Bus Catering was wonderful! From the tasting until the end of our wedding reception they provided us with spectacular food, attention and made our day completely worry free! Our guests LOVED the food and their unique way of preparing the food is amazing. It's not just your typical "wedding" food, but really a work of art. Their wait staff was extremely professional and attentive to our guests. The personalized service and attention they gave us was priceless and made our day perfect!

Being a wedding and event planner, I've dealt with a plethora of caterers, restaurants and vendors. Words cannot describe the outstanding level of service from 8 North Broadway! We hired them for our "Friendsgiving" celebration to come to our home and "chef up" a fabulous and fanciful meal! Not only were we served just that, but we were wined and dined and not one of us lifted a finger. It was the first time we actually got to sit back, relax and enjoy our company without having to cook and clean. If you've ever dined at 8NB before, then you already know how outstanding the food tastes. Whether you are in or out of the restaurant, the tastiness of the food (and the abundent amounts served) certainly fulfilled our salacious appetites! 8NB is a MUST HIRE for your next event. We already booked them for our "Secret Santa" party and can't wait to see what menu will be presented this time. Ps...the wine selection was just as fabulous as the food!

Eric and his staff provided a great menu, for a great value. Many of our wedding guests complimented the taste and variety of food, so we felt confident that we made the right choice. They presented everything in a timely manner, and were very professional the day of. Their service went above expectations, assisting with everything we requested and then some. We were very happy.

They catered our wedding and were excellent. Such a bit hit! They arrived on time and set up in a timely fashion. The chefs were excellent, professional and friendly. And of course the crepes were awesome. They served well over 150 guests very efficiently. Priced reasonably and Nick was great to work with. We definitely recommend for any wedding or event.
