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.

My husband gave me a great 50th birthday party gift of a personal chef to have a summer evening handled by Chuck with 9 of my friends. The food was fantastic, presented well and my friends raved! What I loved most was how easy Chuck was to work with and how accommodating he was. On time, prepared and best part was my kitchen and home were left in tip top shape. We were so happy- Chuck and his wife Maria were attentive yet unobtrusive at the same time. I absolutely loved my evening and would have Chuck come back for more parties!

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.

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!

We had a small wedding celebration catered by DeCicco and Sons and it was a great experience from beginning to end. From the first text I received with a quote it was clear that they are incredibly professional and easy to communicate with. On top of the great customer service the food was very delicious and everyone raved about the taste and how well they accommodated for dietary restrictions. I would recommend them in a heartbeat and am so happy we found them through thumbtack.

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.

I hired Melissa to prepare a birthday dinner at a townhouse we rented in NYC for a girls weekend getaway (13 of us). So glad we went this route instead of going out to dinner! Melissa and her partner were terrific and the dinner was delicious. They prepared a great meal, while we were able to enjoy some wine and laughs in the living/dining room. This was certainly better than being stuck at a table all night, only chatting with the person sitting next to you. Melissa helped make this celebration exactly what we wanted and we will definitely do it again. THANKS, MELISSA!! :)

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.

My name is Marisa and I hired Harvest Specialty to cater my birthday party. I dealt directly with Jason and when I told him what I had in mind he knew just what to do and came up with the best menu to accommodate everyone. The price was extremely reasonable and Jason was always available if I had questions or concerns. The day of the event Jason arrived on time and set everything up beautifully and quickly. The food was so delicious everyone at the party was asking about the caterer. I would definitely use Harvest Specialty again and I would definitely recommend them to all 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.

I threw a catered birthday party, and upon signing up with Thumbtack, Brooklyn Kitchen got back to me in the hour. Throughout the entire process, their responsiveness was always immediate and thorough, anytime I had a question, and we were even able to set up a call to discuss the catering. The food was delivered promptly and ready to present/serve, friends raved about the wings at the party and the NEXT DAY. Highly recommend.

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.

I had an awesome experience working with Frecklez! I ordered a cake and a dessert table spread for my best friends 30th birthday party and they did an amazing job. Everyone kept going back for seconds, they couldn't believe how great everything tasted. Everyone, including me was blown away when we saw they had a chocolate melting pot where people could dip things in. That wasn't expected. I could go on and on but I definitely recommend Frecklez for your next event! Thanks Ativa for an awesome experience.
