"This was the best food!" EVERYONE Ellen catered to for our dinner last evening could not get over how delicious their meals were. There are not enough words of gratitude I can share with her or any of you who are considering to hire her for your event. Ellen is concise when reaching out with her menus, her menus are organized by cuisine (making it easy to discuss), her response time is excellent, there are no hidden last minute charges, she shows up at the agreed time, is able to work in a challenging kitchen (we are in an office with a no flame policy and she made do with sternos), her food presentation is attractive and appetizing, and she is an absolute gem to work with. I have been in the food and beverage industry for 20 years, worked with many many chefs and Ellen is the real deal. Our group was falling behind and dinner service was delayed by close to 45 minutes. She made sure the main courses were still hot and of the best integrity, which is difficult to do when serving poultry and fish. Everything was seasoned beautifully with a variety of flavors with each course. Truly, the whole experience was magical and I can't wait to work with her again. Thank you so much Ellen!
We just enjoyed the greatest gift - a 5 course meal prepared in our NYC coop by celebrity Chef , Chris Nirschel !!! As many awesome restaurants as there are in NYC none could match this in home extravaganza . Check him out online - 5 stars from us !
Charly did a wonderful job on short notice. He was prompt, very personable, and made us a delicious meal that felt more authentic than any restaurant. You take for granted eating in restaurants where you can see the food being prepared or speak with the chef. When Charly described the dish, ingredients, and how he prepared the meal I felt much more connected to what I was enjoying and I really sensed the passion Charly has for his food quality, joy of cooking, and personalized customer service. Highly recommend!
Absolutely loved the food prepared by Chef Wayne ! My friends and I were delightedly and pleased!
Tamara and her Amoraco team were truly exceptional. Before the event, Tamara was responsive, readily accepting our preferences and changes to the menu she proposed and very reasonable in her pricing. She, Tara and Jean arrived as scheduled one hour before the party and needed minimal guidance before taking over the kitchen and starting to prepare the food. They worked diligently, professionally and with a beaming smile throughout the four hours we had hired them for. The food was inventive and delicious, presented beautifully and in a timely fashion. When two of our guests spilled their drinks on the carpet, the quickly cleaned up the mess even though that was not easy. When they left, the kitchen was in an impeccable condition and our apartment looked as if the party had never taken place. We tip our hat (and so did our guests) to this great team, which offered excellent food, superior service and a worry-free event to the hosts.
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.
Nate Smith and his team are one of the most professional catering groups I have ever worked with. Very responsive, and the food was perfect. We did a reception and plated meal for 50 guests, and all were delighted.
Chef Martinez was excellent! He served my entire staff freshly prepared food at a great price. He communicated very well and made sure to deliver on all he promised. Would definitely recommend and will use again for profession and personal events.
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.
Melissa was absolutely amazing and was so responsive! The food she prepared was nothing but delicious. It was a pleasure to have her for our wedding. You won’t regret working with her!
I would highly recommend Chef Stenneth. In addition to a great meal, he was very attentive and made sure everyone had the right meal (some people had some major dietary restrictions in my party of 5). I asked for some special wine as well and he delivered as promised. He is a true professional, and deserves all the stars available.
Peter is not only a very talented chef, but also a lovely man and a pleasure to be around. Peter has prepared meals for myself and my family regularly over the last year and has been a huge success with us all. I unreservedly recommend anyone to try Peter's excellent work. You will be extremely happy. :)
Melissa's cooking event was incredibly informative! I learned so much about nutrition, detoxing, and food preparation. The juice and meals she prepared exceeded my expectations and were wildly delicious!
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
Chef Dave did a great job and prepared a delicious meal for our party!
Chef Stef did a wonderful job. Everything was high quality and right on Schedule. We had a buffet for 150 people and had enough food for 20 more. Entrees were fresh grilled steak, Carolina pulled pork, and BBQ chicken. Sides included yummy German style potato salad, rice with vegetables, corn on cob, tomato mozzarella salad and tossed salad, rolls, cookies and brownies. Plenty of high quality, well prepared food. Good service and cleanup and Stef bagged up the leftovers. Thanks Chef Stef. We heard no complaints.
My wife and I had a great night learning some fun meals! Then of course ate ourselves into a coma. Food was excellent and Anne was great, highly recommended!
I found Clarendon Cuisines though thumbtack for my bridal shower last night and I couldn't be more happier because my gosh the food was excellent! I had a plated meal and everyone loved the dishes I chose. His staff were very attentive to my guests and the presentation was great! I was so blown away that me and my fiancé decided to use their services for our wedding this fall!
John-Paul is a perfectionist. All of his food is beautifully prepared and tastes like it was prepared in a Michelin Star restaurant! He takes his profession seriously and it shows. I highly recommend JP’s Delicacies.
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!!
Delicious professionally prepared and cooked food delivered to our door! Our family receives breakfast, lunch and dinner and we can't believe we didn't do this a long time ago. Since I'm not able to make our meals anymore we struggled for a while until we spoke to Maison Prive Chefs. They understand our dietary needs and clearly strive to help people. I asked to change one thing and it was done immediately. They make sure we are happy with the food and service all the time. Maison Prive is truly a blessing for us and I would recommend it to everyone!
