Ellen was instrumental in catering at our home for my wife's birthday event. Food was plentiful, varied and delicious. Ellen worked with our palate, our specific requirements (vegetarian) and home setup to provide an excellent spread for our us and our guests. She came up with creative ideas to add flavor and variety and worked extra hard to provide impeccable service. Both Ellen and her delicious food were stars at the party.

Chuck and Maria provided our party of 8 for my friend's 50th birthday with delicious food and service. He was professional, punctual, and delivered what he said, fresh quality food. We would definitely use Every detail catering again and highly recommend others to try as well.

My husband and I were looking for a kind, friendly and personable bartender. After the reading the reviews for Santisi Catering, we decided to book and I am glad that we did. Our Bartender name was Kimberly(same as mine) and I said to myself " we have the same name so I know she will be wonderful". Kim was everything that we wanted in a bartender. I couldn't believe that she went into help mode from the moment she walked in the door, quickly saying "what do you need me to do" and " I will do it for you". We are already lookin forward to doing business again with Santisi Catering. Highly recommended.

Lauren Collura catered a party for 60 people in my apartment in New York City. The event was composed of a service of hors d'oeuvres, beverage service, and a buffet dinner. Lauren is an accomplished professional who understands the multiple components that must be part of a successful catering business. Lauren worked with me to develop the plans for the party, was quickly and effectively responsive to my suggestions and concerns, and executed the plan regarding the food and service in an excellent fashion. She visited my home well before the event to assess the space and determine the set-up in my home; she arranged for the rental of all food service items, tables and chairs; and she constructed an arrangement that worked seamlessly in my home. It was a pleasure for me to work with her and, most important, the guests had a wonderful time, all around, as evidenced by the very many compliments regarding Lauren's work that I received.

Charly is a fantastic chef! I hired him to prepared a 5 course brunch for my wife and I on Mother's Day. He sent a proposed menu and then worked with us to customize it to our preferences. The food was absolutely delicious! He was friendly, professional and on time. I would definitely hire Charly again for the next special occasion and strongly recommend him to anyone thinking of hiring a personal chef. Thanks Charly!

We hired Tamara and her team for a 15 person dinner party. I wanted light bites so everyone would be able to eat as they wanted and mingle while enjoying their food. They met every one of my expectations. Tamara with Amoraco catering was so easy to work with. She was timely, responsive, and very flexible in creating the perfect menu for my dinner party. We were lucky enough to have chef Mona cook for us. Mona was so friendly and took care of everything so I did not have to worry about a single thing but enjoying the food and my guests. The food was outstanding-everything she cooked was perfect. We had 15 people and everyone commented on how awesome Mona was and how amazing the food was. Can not recommend Amoraco Catering enough! Will definitely be using them again.

Adolfo and his team were absolutely fantastic. They were professional, responsive and clean. The event was in my home and they were very good about leaving everything in perfect condition. Also, the food was absolutely amazing and far exceeded my expectations (highlights were the tuna tartar, truffled grilled cheese and spanakopita). I highly recommend!

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.

A successful summer in Southampton is a tall order and finding a great chef isn't easy. I was introduced to Chef Aless in 2016 and it was a blessing. She helped make this one of the best years to date. Her menus are consistently delicious and elegant. We have had the pleasure of her being in charge of the kitchen for 20 and 300 guests and she maintains the same cheerful disposition even when curveballs are thrown at her. I highly recommend her for all your catering needs. Lori N House Manager,Southampton NY

Chef Martin saved me this summer -- he was able to commit within a short span of time to help with a very open-ended and unorganized situation, and he was on-point, on time, and he was a top-level professional -- enabling me to pull the whole event weekend together without a hitch. I didn't get a chance to actually taste his food myself, but I heard that he didn't disappoint and that he adjusted to what the client needed quite easily. I highly recommend him and his catering services. I look forward to booking him again for my own bosses.

Chef Greg and his team did an excellent job setting up and catering yummy foods at my wedding. Greg is very passionate in cooking... you will know it after you try his food. All my guests are still raving about the foods served that day especially the fish, braised beef polenta, and oxtail. The foods were not only delicious but also, illustrated remarkable artistic culinary skills. Stephanie was great in handling all the logistic parts, love the decor and end-result of the wedding venue. It was simply beautiful and elegant. Thank you for making my wedding day extra special!

We have had Oscar cook for us on several occasions. As an overall general statement, I do not hesitate to say that his food is delicious (and my husband is a "foodie"). His ingredients are always fresh and the pride he takes in the kitchen is enviable. He was extremely accomodating to whatever need or desire we had and is flexible in everything from the choice of food, to the amount of money we wanted to spend, to his presence in our home. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Oscar to anyone interested in having a private or personal chef or catering for an occasion. He is skillfull in cooking many different types of dishes and will often surprise you in how delicious and unique he can make ordinary dishes taste out-of-this-world. We will definitely have him back soon.

Outstanding hands on demonstration and lesson for my 11 year old daughters and friends. Not only did they learn to cook the meal they enjoyed, they learned proper knife skills, cutting a chicken, importance of fresh ingredients vs. store bought, sauce prep and reduction technique, homemade salad dressing, and presentation of the meal. We all enjoyed Chef's simple educational approach as well as his lively sense of humor and calm command in the kitchen! Absolutely look forward to cooking with him again as well as using his catering expertise for at home celebrations.

The delivery was prompt and efficient. The food received rave reviews from the guests. The only two things that kept from the 5th star was that the pasta was a tad over cooked and I wish coffee were a part of the package. I highly recommend this catering company to anyone. I already have people asking me who catered the party!

I have had the great pleasure of being a customer and guest on several occasions of Cornbread26's catering services. Each time I was blown away by their outstanding customer service, food quality and flavor, and beautiful execution of the event's decor. Claude and Craig work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that their clients don't have to worry about a thing except for enjoying the experience and the food.

BOOK'EM NOW!...... LIKE RIGHT NOW!!! Hands down thee best catering company I have ever experienced! I used RSVP as the owner catered a friend's engagement party in February. I have worked in the restaurant industry for several years and could not believe the attention to detail that their wait staff displayed. They were on point with everything and my glass never went empty. The whole staff was very nice and very professional. Especially the bartender . I chatted it up with him for a bit, made really good drinks and was a real friendly guy. Now, the food was outstanding! I really enjoyed the gorgonzola stuffed babybella mushrooms amongst all the other delicious dishes. I had a chance to meet the owner Renee after the dinner while everyone was dancing. Not over exaggerating at all, they were probably the kindest people I every met. SUPER COOL, totally humble, and they even gave me food to take home. I would recommend RSVP to anybody and everybody that wants their party to be a success!
