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 Im extremely happy I hired her company because it was worth every penny.
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 cannot say enough good things about SGS catering, especially Chef Grant. We had about 80 guests and a limited budget. But he was very accommodating in working with us. Great communications all the way till the day of our event. We also had some guests bring in food as a partial potluck. The chefs were really helpful and quick in organizing everything. We also had a vegetarian guest who inquired about vegetarian options before dinner was served. When dinner was ready an hour later, the server found her in the crowd and served her a vegetarian plate (we had a buffet style). I also made a two tiered cake myself for the event as I like to bake. As I was getting ready to assemble a tiered cake for the first time, Chef Grant pulled out his great decoration skills and made my cake look beautiful! We cannot say enough thank you for all the great help! Last but not the least, the food was amazing! The guests were all talking about how much they liked it. We are very happy there was leftovers so we can keep enjoying the food for days. We would definitely go back to them again if we ever need catering for any other events. Thank you again SGS Catering for everything!
Chef Michel put together a wonderful buffet meal for my mother's 80th birthday party. The food was excellent, the service was professional and Chef Michel was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him for any catered event you are planning.
Gordon is an extremely creative and innately talented chef. Since becoming aware of a severe gluten sensitivity, I have been eating healthy at home thanks to him-I am happy to say no more restaurants for me! When planning my meals, Gordon is very attentive to my requests. His patients and versatility keep even gluten free food interesting and tasty. I have noticed that he uses only fresh ingredients and takes pride in using them to create and present an incredibly delicious gluten free meal every time. It is apparent that he loves seeing people enjoy his food. Though I am amazed at how easily Gordon has been able to adapt my favorite dishes to a gluten free alternative, I am most delighted with the yummy and elaborate desserts that one would never guess are GF! If you or a family member have dietary restrictions (and even if you don't) there's no doubt that you will want Gordon to be your personal chef! Don't hesitate to call and ask what he can do for you.🍴😃🍴 Sent from my iPad
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

We had an amazing experience working with Chef Stef! We did appetizers for a small party and everything was perfect. The food was outstanding! And the team was so professional when setting up. Chef Stef was so easy to work with— I picked some appetizers from a set menu and then requested some others, and Chef was so accommodating and flexible. The price was also incredibly reasonable— especially for the quality! I highly recommend using Chef Stef and can’t wait to have him cater our next event. Thank you, Chef Stef!!!!!!
Chef Diana catered a pool party at my home in Aug. 2013. I received quotes from other chefs but Diana was the only one who really paid attention to my menu requests and delivered an exceptional customized menu. An hour before the start of the party, the grill guy goes to light the grill and . I forgot to double check the propane tank as she had suggested during the walk thru. Thankfully she was so well prepared that she was able to send the grill guy to Home Depot for a replacement tank. Dianas staff treated my guests like royalty. The food was both delicious and beautifully presented. Thank you Diana!!! See you in August. Mr. Rivera
Gerry provided personal chef services for my family and friends who were staying at my home for a week; he provided breakfast and dinner for 10-12 people. I was really impressed from the beginning for his level of professionalism, punctuality, and the high quality of the meals he provided for us.You can tell he really loves what he does. Everyone was delighted and I am sure we will be asking him to help us again in the very near future. I highly recommend him.
Chef was great to work with. Brought me and my wife great suggestions. It felt like a team effort when trying to create a menu for our anniversary party. He was at our home early to get started. He had consideration with our space, when he was done, everything was left back to the way it was. He made our guests feel like they were at 5 star restaurant. Definitely recommend!
Chef was on time and catered to the specific needs of my guests and I. The food was amazing and the experience was wonderful. He also cleaned as he went along. My guest is also a chef and he was pleased. It is an experience I would do again.
Chef Kylene was a pleasure to work with and easy to contact. Her menu was interesting, well executed, and delicious. She worked well with me in the planning, arrived exactly on time, was flexible with meal timing and did a terrific job overall. My friends and I couldn't be more pleased and would be delighted to recommend her. We wouldn't hesitate to hire her for another party.
Chef Paty is a phenomenal chef and professional, her knowledge about food allergies is more than I expected. Having a family with multiples types of allergies I have always struggle to be creative in my kitchen but now I don't have to worry anymore Paty does all the work, from building the menu, grocery shopping high end products, cooking, packing, labeling and storage the food. She is very organized and clean and i can't say enough about much she contributed to our family to have a better life with healthy and nutritious meals everyday. I highly recommend chef Paty.
We couldn't have asked for a better party--the bride to be was overwhelmed with the food and effort that Kim, our chef, provided. From start to finish Kim offered excellent menu suggestions, and planned to whole party for us. The appetizers, entree and desserts were par excellence!! The food presentation was beautiful. She even typed up the menu, which we placed at each setting. The appetizers were placed on platters with fresh flowers that matched the color of the bridal party. Our party of 24 had more than enough food, with each bite better the the last. We started off with a shrimp on a homemade wonton with green goddess dressing, Homemade hummus and guac with chips/crackers, then some meatball sliders ( the bride's fav!) and a beautiful crudite. The main course offered both chicken and steak Indonesian style with delicious sides. Kim even made a delicious carrot cake sundae for the bride to be, knowing that carrot cake was her favorite. The whole even was perfect and elegant from start to finish....we couldn't have asked for anything more. Chef Kim is wonderful!!! Thanks Kim for a fantastic night!!!
Happiness is having a first class chef prepare a dinner feast in your own home. Robert was responsive and very responsible. After listening attentively to our food preferences, he came back with several choices. He brought all the food and everything he needed with him. He left his satisfied diners with happy memories and a very clean kitchen. We felt very pampered and so will you.
Chef Sterling put together a variety of platters for us for my son's graduation. They were just what we wanted and more. Delicious food! I will definitely use his services again to cater our next event.
Lisa catered a holiday party of 50 guests for us, cocktail food and dinner. She is the best caterer I have EVER hired. Lisa is professional, creative, knows her stuff and uses high-quality fresh ingredients. I recommend her without qualification.
