My company hired Ellen to prepare a breakfast spread for a client meeting we were having last week, 20 people total. Ellen was fantastic, she went above and beyond our expectations and the food she served was delicious. Everyone was very happy with how it turned out, we would absolutely recommend Ellen for any personal chef needs!

Bad boy celebrity chef Chris Nirschell is a rising star! My co-hostess and I hired Chris to be the personal chef for a small very select social group in NYC. The food was delectable, mouth watering and fabulous! His butternut squash? Puree based, no cream? It was wonderful. We also had a wonderful fall harvest salad and wild caught salmon as the entree. All (again) simply mouth watering! The last course was a mango fosters. Almond gelato and homemade whipped cream. Sweet and light. We had a wine pairing with all four courses. Chris plated the meal with artistry; he announced and described each course and was knowledgeable about the wine with which we paired each course. We will use him again. I hope our group is grandfathered into his reasonable rates for the future!! Thank you Chef Chris!

I found Bacco Caterers on Thumbtack. I was impressed with the five stars and the reviews, so I contacted Chef Lauren to begin to see if she was the caterer for us—and was she ever! Joyce and I wanted to include our friends and family in our marriage anniversary celebration in our Brooklyn home. We are novice Open House hosts and Lauren advised us re details we would never have thought of, including in our menu selections. Her staff, chef Amanda and sous chef Laura, created freshly made hors d’hoeuvres in our kitchen as the party occurred, superb finger food that was varied, interesting, and delicious! People, including us, loved it. The servers Karen, Tony, and Kevin, and bartender Elroy were unobtrusively attentive and friendly to our guests. Our party took place on two floors and the yard, and the staff kept the food appearing and the empty glasses disappearing with seeming effortlessness. Many guests commented on how comfortable they made everyone feel, contributing to the general sense of joyousness. In spite of our request for no gifts, or perhaps because of it, many of our 50 guests brought flowers. As soon as I was handed the bouquets, Tony would appear and would arrange them in vases I had directed him to when flowers first arrived. I was free during the whole party to visit with my friends and family. I, who am not a party-person, enjoyed myself fully during this celebration, and I am grateful to Chef Lauren and her staff for the many ways (including a fantastic clean-up) they helped make that possible.

I hired Chef Charly as a personal chef for my birthday celebration. Chef is a professional and has a great passion for food. A few days before my celebration we discussed menu ideas and came up with a full menu which included 3 appetizers and main course. I love black truffles so the menu included the delicious flavor of black truffle oil and black truffles. The food was delicious and the plate presentation was like I was dinning at a Top Resturant. Charly came a few hrs before the party and started his magic in my kitchen. We started with a Farmhouse tomatoes soup crime fresh with black truffle oil. Bacon tart and leeks. Cantaloupe melon,prosciutto di Parma. Followed by the main course. Half Cornish hen, wild mushrooms, truffle mash potatoes, baby zucchini and ratatouille. The food was fantastic and watching a top chef create beautiful dishes in my own kitchen is an experience that I truly enjoyed. I will defiantly hire Chef Charly again and again. I am just waiting for another occasion to celebrate. Charly, expect a call from me in 2016.

Tamara is simply AMAZING! She is not only an extremely capable and very talented chef, but is also a consummate professional. She knew exactly the type of food that would lend itself to our organization and the event. We had nothing to worry about. Tamara catered a 300 person event for us and people are still raving about her delicious and creative food items. She is a joy to work with and helped make our Benefit an incredible success. Thank you Tamara!

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.

My boyfriend and I hired Melissa for the second time this year. As to be expected, everything was perfect, and whenever we need a personal chef, she is number one in our book! I know we can both be very particular when it comes to planning these things, so it's great to have someone who understands our crazy and mixes her crazy in with ours to come up with a flawless event. Can't wait til the next one!

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!

Melissa was great. We had an in-depth conversation up front about our dietary restrictions including a shellfish allergy, a gluten sensitivity, and a dairy sensitivity within our party. Overall, we were aiming for a vegan meal. She worked with us and gave us multiple suggestions on dinner options based on our likes and dislikes. She even came by the house to provide samples of her dishes before the event. The night of the event, she did a great job executing appetizers, dinner, and dessert. The food was delicious and she left our kitchen in better shape than she found. I highly recommend Melissa as your next personal chef!

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

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!!!!!!

JP catered a party for us of about 40 adults and 20 kids and we had a great experience working with him - highly recommend his services! He was responsive and flexible during the planning phase, able to modify his gameplan day-of when our rooftop venue got rained out :( and prepped and served the food efficiently, beautifully and notably, without needing anything from us as hosts, letting us truly enjoy the party. On top of all that, all the guests loved the food itself and several have inquired about contacting JP for their own events. I’m happy to make those connections because JP is truly a great chef and a consummate professional!

Excellent experience. Chef Nirva cooked a three course meal, Mediterranean inspired, for my birthday for myself and 9 guests. She made the hummus from scratch and the lamb meatballs were my favorite. The main course was a light yet flavorful rosemary chicken, followed by a chocolate dessert. Chef not only presented the dishes just like at a restaurant, but she explained to everyone how she made the dishes. Thanks so much for making my birthday a great experience!

I have worked with Chef Germaine. Chef Germaine's work quality is exceptional. I will recommend her highly to anyone that ask me for a cater, or personal chef for their event. You could not asked for a better/talented person to work with. She is caring patient and very professional. She puts love and care into her work, and it shows. Chef Germaine You Rock!! Loretta Green
