The day before my daughter's 2nd birthday, I spoke to Charly, having decided last-minute to throw a small and casual afternoon party and looking for something a notch up from warming up Trader Joe's hors d'oeuvres. It ended up being a happy miscommunication, as Charly nailed it out of the park, and in speaking to him for a few minutes, I decided to give him some license to "do his thing." We truly did not expect the level of class, quality and utmost professionalism he brought to our home the next day. Not to mention, he managed to shop for all the fresh ingredients and items with less than 24 hours' notice for 20 adults and 10 kids ranging from 1-4 years old. We and all the guests commented on the quality and freshness of food (immediate eyebrows of approval at the mention of Paisanos, where he purchased the lamb chops!). He brought all the ingredients, prepared and served invisibly and quietly while the party (chaos with the kids) raged on, and then cleaned up the kitchen impeccably before he left. This was all the more impressive given that our kitchen and resources were pretty minimal -- he was able to work with what we had in terms of serving platters and ware. Charly is great fun to work with, while being truly a top-notch professional. Thanks again, Charly.
Chris catered a dinner party at my apartment and everything was top notch. He arrived promptly, had enough time to get organized before the guests arrived, and looked very professional. The presentation of the food was as delicious as it tasted. My friend helped organize the menu and every course was more delicious than the next. I look forward to having him caterer more frequently, as well as teach cooking classes. Chris' professionalism and attentiveness was incredible. Thank you again for a wonderful evening!
I wish I could give 10 stars...I would. I was a little nervous hiring Marylyn for my wife's 50th birthday party as I had never met her. The pre party planning was simple and Marylyn gave me ample food choices and walked me through the whole process. She was very responsive to return emails and answer any question I had. When she walked into my kitchen I knew I was all set. We had 70 guest, an hour and a half of cocktails and hors d' oeuvres, a full salmon and beef dinner followed by dessert. She supplied everything and never asked for anything allowing us to enjoy our guests and the party. The food was amazing with 5 different served hors d' oeuvres and then dinner. Dinner was served hot and the presentation to the guests was first class. The staff was so friendly and attentive and worked to make every guest happy. The bar staff was equally great and at the end of the night, they cleaned everything. I cant wait until next time. Thank you Marylyn. Hutch Avon, CT
I was looking for a caterer for my birthday party, a cocktail party with passed hors d'oeuvres for 35 people in my NYC apartment. I found Lauren (Bacco Catering) here on thumbtack, and decided to give her a call. I liked her immediately, and hiring her company turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made! Lauren was extremely professional and responsive throughout the entire process. She described her services accurately and was very patient and flexible while we decided on the menu and everything else. She was the only one of 4 caterers I spoke to who was willing to do a site visit prior to the party, which was very important to me. Her company is very service oriented, and it's obvious that she treats all of her clients VERY well whether its a big or small function. She delivered exactly what she promised, and my party was outstanding! Her food was delicious and beautifully presented. She put together an outstanding team for my party--they were EXTREMELY attentive to all of my guests, who are still talking about them! No one had an empty glass for long, and they were so polite and professional and operated seamlessly and efficiently, in a small space too. They cleaned up very well and left my apartment in excellent condition. Lauren and Bacco catering exceeded my expectations in every way. She is a true professional, and I would definitely hire Lauren/Bacco Catering again for future parties. I recommend them HIGHLY to anyone looking for a caterer!
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!!
Tamara Shenkle was fantastic to work with. From start to finish, Tamara professionally brought me through the process of planning our marriage celebration NYC cocktail party. From the delicious menu (the guests raved perfectly bite sized hors d'ourves), cocktails & bar (she handled everything) to the handling of a lovely prosecco toast for fifty of our closest friends. Amoraco's food was fresh, exquisite, the glass and serving ware completely taken care of and the staff gracious, skilled and friendly. Thank you Tamara for catering our party. We and, again, the guests gave you and your team heartfelt compliments. P.S. Thank you for leaving the place so clean - our host appreciated it! I highly recommend Tamara and Amoraco for anyone reading this post.
Rich was very professional and did an excellent job for the group of people at our dinner party who were vegetarians!!
We worked with Katherine Fonsella from DeCicco events and cuisine and she was WONDERFUL. We were planning a pre-wedding dinner for about 100 people in the Tarrytown area, but we live in Northern California. We did not know any venues or caterers or suppliers. Katherine helped us find a great, unusual loft venue, arranged all the decor, tables, lighting, and set up the catering from DeCiccos. The staff were excellent, the food was very good, everything went off perfectly. We are so appreciative of all that Katherine did to make our event wonderful!
Having been my first time throwing a combined kids and adult party I wasn't sure where to focus. I spoke to Nate and he gave me a quick menu that would cater to both age groups. He came in with the team and without knowing too much about him or how good he was, he was able to take care of everything and without much direction or stress on my part at all. Everything went perfect and I will be using his services much more now. People are still telling me about how good his hamburgers were !!
Festive Food Caterers (Michael) and his team went above and beyond for our party ! This was a graduation party with lots of adults and tons and tons of teenage kids until late at night! Michael and his staff were overly attentive To every need of every guest! The food was phenomenal ! If you were looking for a caterer to help take the worry off your shoulders this is the caterer you want to speak with everything I needed he did ....

There was so much food in so much variety we had enough food for 2 days!

My husband and I hosted an intimate birthday dinner party for our daughter, her boyfriend and guest visiting from Belgium and a couple of close friends. Each of them enjoyed the salmon and lamb chops, the presentation of the appetizers and salad was great. We had a great experience with Chef Aless. We would definitely consider her again for future events. Leila and Gerhard Mueller
I was desperately looking for somebody to help with my daughter's 21st birthday party and only had two days to organize the entire thing. I posted a request on Thumbtack and Tyler (as well as other providers) contacted me. Based on what I read about the different options I selected Tyler's company, and I am very happy I did. He was simply outstanding. Within a few hours he came up with a menu of cocktails (named after my daughter), he took care of all the logistics (including insurance), and recruited the necessary personnel to cater the party. My daughter said that it was a memorable experience and the quality of the service was top notch. Both my daughter and I would recommend Tyler's services without any reservation.
Laura has catered many parties for me and my family. Every meal she creates is presented beautifully and tastes amazing! We have enjoyed her specialty cakes from Communion to Graduation! Each one was personally designed. Laura recently catered a holiday party for us and once again her food was presented and served perfectly by her staff. My kitchen was left spotless and her kitchen staff and waitresses are diligent and friendly! Her expertise in party planning has been so helpful and her ideas are so creative. She pays attention to every detail and oversees every aspect from cooking to catering. Most importantly, her food is delicious!! I would definitely recommend!
Oscar and his team did a fabulous job catering our Pop-Up party! His staff was friendly and courteous to our guests and were extremely helpful. I would definitely use him again!
Chef Dave was unbelievable. We had an engagement party in Manhattan and he cooked our party of 22 people fresh Shrimp Ravioli, Crab Cakes, Shrimp and Watermellon salad, and chicken scarpariello. All was fabulous and our guest couldn't stop raving about the food. I highly recommend him and will use his service for furture events.
Prior to working with Melissa, she was very responsive. She was comfortable responding over text, email and phone. She gave me ample time on the phone so that I could get to know her before coming to our house. Additionally, Melissa was patient as I tried to figure out the menu for the actual event. On the night of the event, Melissa came over to the house. We were staying at a rented home that had limited supplies. Melissa was not at all thrown off by this, and she had brought all of the materials she would need to cook with. While Melissa was happy to cook in the kitchen alone with her assistant, she was extremely social with the other members of the party (there were seven of us); and was happy to share what she was cooking, how she was doing it, and answering any questions people had. A mixed gender bachelorette party, Melissa was really able to understand the energy of the space, and was even willing to take pictures of our group before she left! The food she made was absolutely delicious and she was able to find a good balance between feeding everyone without having too much food left over. I would definitely hire again for another event!
Ivett was the best she was reasonably priced and handle our last minute request to add 20 extra to our party. The staff was professional and punctual I'd hire them again in a heartbeat.
I recently hired Cornbread26 to catered a cocktail party for 50 people. I was so impressed with food and overall service. They were able to meet all my needs helping make my event a true success. Thank you Cornbread26! Alan Kempske
A perfect venue for an intimate cocktail party. Great service, great food, perfect space. Pam, the Catering Manager, made the planning experience stress free. Guests were extremely complimentary ... Couldn't have been more pleased!
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!!
Food quality and service is amazing! It's not always easy to get good healthy meals that kids will love; however, James and Jennifer have mastered it, and they are a pleasure to deal with.
