Chef Ellen catered my wife's surprise 50th birthday party. She created an amazingly diverse and mouth-wateringly delicious menu. She worked around every obstacle imaginable, from the unforseen limitations of my facility to the need to hide 25 guests in her small staging area as we waited for our guest of honor (who arrived 20 min late). My father-in-law, who owned and ran four major Manhattan restaurants was extremely impressed with the food and service. His review was, "Fantastic!" We will be using her services in the future, a future that is certainly bright.

Every Detail Catering was a pleasure to work with. Chuck was extremely professional, communicated effectively, and was able to accommodate everything I asked for! He even went above and beyond to provide a special dish for my nephew with severe allergies. Would greatly recommend the shrimp cocktail (so fresh!),stuffed mushrooms and crab cake appetizers. My mom's 60th birthday party was a success because of the professionalism and hard work of Every Detail Catering!

NY Catering service prepared and ran my husband's 70th birthday party and everyone who was there thought it was the best party they ever went to that was prepared in someone's home. The food was amazing and the flow of the evening went perfectly. Could not have asked for anything different. Ellen P

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!

Adolfo and his team catered my mother's 60th Surprise Birthday Party for 15ppl in her apartment. It was an absolute success!!! the food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. the flavor profiles as each course came out complimented the ones before. it was a cohesive menu that we both worked on preparing. the favorites of the night were the mini grilled cheese with the tomato soup shot and the duck wraps. The mini lobster rolls were tasty and we took the leftover lobster and ate them as lettuce wraps. But everything was delish!! I spoke to many caterers and his level of professionalism and follow up was what truly drew me to his as I knew he could be trusted and cared for this event to be a success as much my sisters and i did. Everyone was so pleased and in awe of the service. As soon as an item was sent out - the napkins were whisked away. My sisters and I were able to enjoy my mother's party due to the prompt attention and efficiency of Adolfo's staff. I would love to hire Adolfo again for all my parties. It's well worth it and I'm so fortunate that I was able to find his services. Thank you for his team for making it so special. My mom was blown away- much success to you!! Thumbtack community - please hire them! You will not be disappointed.

Wow. Just wow. I can’t say enough good thing about DeCicco & Sons Events and Cuisine. They arrived on time (early even) in their DeCicco & Sons Vans. The Food was Amazing and the set up was elegant. There was so much beautifully set up food and appetizers. I ordered drop-off service for my daughter’s sweet sixteen party this yesterday. And we also had two full service bar tenders with the works. They were so attentive to our needs...from Bittany who was my contact person and our event planner, (who addressed all my questions and concerns...and worked with my budget) to the bartenders who did an amazing job and kept the party going all night long. They went above and beyond to make our dream event a reality. Good job guys! At the end of the night I had to hug both Bartenders, because I was so happy with everything. Must hire...them for your event. You won’t be disappointed.

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.

It was a catered birthday party at a hall and unfortunately it was a snowy evening but the food was still delivered on time. I was impressed from the very beginning, from the large restaurant sized napkins to the upscale knives and forks which are the same size as your dinner (as opposed to lunch) utensils. I cannot find enough superlatives to describe the food. For appetizers we had sauteed shrimp and cocktail meatballs. The shrimp were simply wonderful, and the meatballs were beefy and substantive, they were not mushy with filler as I have tasted from other caterers. (I am not normally a big meatball fan [personal preference] but I loved these.)The entrees were fried chicken cutlets - OMG- unbelievably flavorful and perfectly seasoned, and pepper steak - tender, tasty and with a gravy that you wanted to get the last drop. One side was Spanish Rice, every grain was separate and distinct and the texture was perfect. The other side was baked macaroni and cheese - outstanding! Again, the texture was perfect and it was cheesy throughout. This was REAL baked macaroni and cheese as opposed to the saucy versions which make me think of the stove-top varieties. This reminded me of my mother's and grandmothers macaroni and cheese and they were the best. T & C Catering's serving allotments are very, very generous. My guests feasted on this food and gave rave reviews. I had looked at other caterers and I was not happy with their limited selections so I turned to the internet and stumbled upon Thumbtack, and from them I learned of T & C, a real gem of a find. My event was two counties away so don't be afraid if its not "local." T & C helped give me the 60th birthday party that I had always envisioned. I would use T & C again, in a heartbeat. And their pricing is excellent - What's not to love.

I would rate this five star if it didn't have two little accidents. One was we couldn't find a lighter when it was time to light the candles on the cake. Another was kind of a miscommunication, I took a cake for my son but then I myself forgot to take one so the catering team thought I had one already but I guess I was the only one who didn't have the cake as the birthday girl. I don't mind that much because I'm not a cake person and this type of mistake could probably only happen to me bc I think any other person would have requested it. So I wouldn't think it's the catering team's fault. Just letting you know if you are like me who doesn't crave for cakes and will be busy running around, you better get one first, haha. Overall I think the team did a great job. The manager arrived early, the food was delicious, the team was fast and professional, the plating was nice, the manager even helped to bring special bamboo plates for the cake, which is of great quality. I didn't taste much of the wine selection but it seems my friends were happy about them. The pricing was very reasonable and communication was easy. The only possible improvement I could think of is probably adding 2-3 courses. I would highly recommend this caterer to my friends.

Exceptional, Outstanding. Two words that comes to mind. Doris planned my husband 70th birthday party at the Crystal Plaza. I could not have asked for anything more. From finding the venue, designing the invitation, decor, music, menu and yes, the 'ENTERTAINMENT". An event still being talked about by all those in attendance. If you dream it, she can do it. She is very professional with her work. Only one other thing I can say, I thought I had a fantastic 60th birthday celebration. but my husband's 70th was off the chart. "NOW THAT WAS A GREAT PARTY". I highly recommend her for your next event.

Nick catered my 28th birthday party in my home. Being a foodie myself this was the first time I left the cooking & serving in someone else's hands. Nick was such a pleasure to work with. He took my vision & ideas & brought them to life. I wanted different, fresh, & fun. He delivered that & more! I will definitely be using his services again in the future.

Renee was responsive and professional from our first contact. She provided a very competent server for our party and did not require a minimum number of hours of work. We were able to be flexible and determine how many hours we needed help at the time of the party. Very satisfied!

Elemental did a nice job for my kid's 1st birthday party. My one call out is the chef listed two items' ingredients on the menu we agreed upon differently than how they were prepared the day of the party which I didn't love, but otherwise a solid job. Just needs to communicate any menu changes.
