The food was Fabulous. The caterer was late and didn't tell me that she doesn't provide heating trays or any utensils etc. I didn't ask about those things because all the other caterers supply them and I just assumed she would as well. Otherwise, Ellen is a very nice person and did a great job. I was happy with the food and service.
They are great caterers. My guests loved the food and a few asked for their contact info for future events
Chris catered a dinner party at my apartment and everything was top notch. He arrived promptly, had enough time to get organized before the guests arrived, and looked very professional. The presentation of the food was as delicious as it tasted. My friend helped organize the menu and every course was more delicious than the next. I look forward to having him caterer more frequently, as well as teach cooking classes. Chris' professionalism and attentiveness was incredible. Thank you again for a wonderful evening!
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!
The day before my daughter's 2nd birthday, I spoke to Charly, having decided last-minute to throw a small and casual afternoon party and looking for something a notch up from warming up Trader Joe's hors d'oeuvres. It ended up being a happy miscommunication, as Charly nailed it out of the park, and in speaking to him for a few minutes, I decided to give him some license to "do his thing." We truly did not expect the level of class, quality and utmost professionalism he brought to our home the next day. Not to mention, he managed to shop for all the fresh ingredients and items with less than 24 hours' notice for 20 adults and 10 kids ranging from 1-4 years old. We and all the guests commented on the quality and freshness of food (immediate eyebrows of approval at the mention of Paisanos, where he purchased the lamb chops!). He brought all the ingredients, prepared and served invisibly and quietly while the party (chaos with the kids) raged on, and then cleaned up the kitchen impeccably before he left. This was all the more impressive given that our kitchen and resources were pretty minimal -- he was able to work with what we had in terms of serving platters and ware. Charly is great fun to work with, while being truly a top-notch professional. Thanks again, Charly.
The food Chef Wayne provided was phenomenal!! We had a 40th party with 26 guests, which at the last minute became 27 guests. Chef Wayne had no problems adjusting to the unexpected guest and last minute course changes by our guests. Everyone commented on how excellent the food was and how nicely everything was plated. One note though, the Chef did run later than expected because he was stuck in traffic and coming from another event. Also, the wait staff, who were very nice and very accommodating, seemed a bit inexperienced, but all in all a very very excellent meal. I am very happy I hired Chef Wayne!!
Tamara Shenkle was fantastic to work with. From start to finish, Tamara professionally brought me through the process of planning our marriage celebration NYC cocktail party. From the delicious menu (the guests raved perfectly bite sized hors d'ourves), cocktails & bar (she handled everything) to the handling of a lovely prosecco toast for fifty of our closest friends. Amoraco's food was fresh, exquisite, the glass and serving ware completely taken care of and the staff gracious, skilled and friendly. Thank you Tamara for catering our party. We and, again, the guests gave you and your team heartfelt compliments. P.S. Thank you for leaving the place so clean - our host appreciated it! I highly recommend Tamara and Amoraco for anyone reading this post.
I contacted Adolfo Silverio of Manjar Boutique Catering to help me with a cocktail party for 80 people last weekend. Because I was planning from a distant city, I was understandably nervous about getting everything arranged and accounted for. From the very first email, Adolfo put my fears to rest. He was very professional, answered all of my questions and made suggestions of things I had not even thought of. He did two walk throughs of the venue beforehand, suggested furniture arrangement, and had everything planned before the night of the party. The party itself was a breeze for me--the food was unique and delicious, the staff was right on top of things (as hostess, the staff made sure my wine glass stayed full--I never had to excuse myself to go to the bar), and everything flowed smoothly. The whole experience was exceptional, and the best part was Adolfo's timely communication--if he said he would phone me at 5 pm, the phone rang at 5 pm. All my emails were answered promptly, and as I stated before, this all went a long way towards making me feel like the party would be a great success--and it was!
We worked with Katherine Fonsella from DeCicco events and cuisine and she was WONDERFUL. We were planning a pre-wedding dinner for about 100 people in the Tarrytown area, but we live in Northern California. We did not know any venues or caterers or suppliers. Katherine helped us find a great, unusual loft venue, arranged all the decor, tables, lighting, and set up the catering from DeCiccos. The staff were excellent, the food was very good, everything went off perfectly. We are so appreciative of all that Katherine did to make our event wonderful!
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.
Peter was lovely - a fun person and easy to talk to/plan prior to the party but as soon as he arrived, he went straight into work mode which I appreciated. He and his team did not have to ask me any questions for the duration of the event enabling my husband and I to truly enjoy our party of 35 guests. The presentation of the food was outstanding which elevated the vibe of the party in our eyes and well as our guests eyes - we received MANY comments on the creative presentation as well as the quality of the food.
Prior to working with Melissa, she was very responsive. She was comfortable responding over text, email and phone. She gave me ample time on the phone so that I could get to know her before coming to our house. Additionally, Melissa was patient as I tried to figure out the menu for the actual event. On the night of the event, Melissa came over to the house. We were staying at a rented home that had limited supplies. Melissa was not at all thrown off by this, and she had brought all of the materials she would need to cook with. While Melissa was happy to cook in the kitchen alone with her assistant, she was extremely social with the other members of the party (there were seven of us); and was happy to share what she was cooking, how she was doing it, and answering any questions people had. A mixed gender bachelorette party, Melissa was really able to understand the energy of the space, and was even willing to take pictures of our group before she left! The food she made was absolutely delicious and she was able to find a good balance between feeding everyone without having too much food left over. I would definitely hire again for another event!
Carol Foster catered my wedding in New York in August 2, 2014.. OMG I do not know where to start, Ms.Carol and her team went above and beyond to make sure this event was successful. She catered 500 people but on that day there were more than 500 people. Mind you that I am African so we throw large party even when you do not plan for it to be that large so my max was 500 not knowing what will happen that day...However, Ms. Carol did not panic and worked successful with my coordinator. From the beginning she worked with our budget and was able to help us with some of her recommendation of the dishes. She and her team were there on time. From the reviews of family members, friends and the guests of the event stated that her food was really good and tasty. They were very professional. Ms. Carol is the best and I will use her again in a heart beat. She made my wedding dreams come through. Oh she also has a great personality and a warm nature person and will work with you no matter your budget. What attracted my coordinator and I was her personality and after the food tasting which was done by my fiancé at that time and two of my siblings since I was located in Texas. So I was praying to hear good news from the tasters and they told me her food was really good among the other caterers and her house was very organized and neat. Ms. Carol keep on with the great job you do and God bless you and your team. YOU ARE THE BEST.
Chef Dave was unbelievable. We had an engagement party in Manhattan and he cooked our party of 22 people fresh Shrimp Ravioli, Crab Cakes, Shrimp and Watermellon salad, and chicken scarpariello. All was fabulous and our guest couldn't stop raving about the food. I highly recommend him and will use his service for furture events.
Food was amazing. We hosted a party for more than 70 people and everyone raved about the food. The crew was great. Extremely professional and responsive. Chef Albert and Phillip were flexible and great to work with. We will definitely hire Chef and team again for our next event.
Five stars doesn't do them justice! Our experience with Ms. Reid-Worthington and everyone at 'Now That Was A Great Party' was outstanding. Ms. Reid-Worthington was a consummate professional from the very first email to the very last moments of our event. Their food was absolutely devoured and received rave reviews from our guests! Ms. Reid-Worthington made such an effort to create a menu that reflected our vision for the day- even taking on special requests. She was open, patient, kind and offered great and helpful suggestions. While this time around we only hired 'Now That Was A Great Party' for catering- I know that they do full event planning, and based on my experiences, I would be extremely confident having them plan my event from start to finish. We had a great feeling right from the start about 'Now That Was A Great Party', and about business owner, Ms. Reid-Worthington, and our instincts were spot on. We're looking forward to working with 'Now That Was A Great Party' for many years to come!
After speaking with two caterers who contacted me through thumbtack I was not imporessed by their professionalism and flexibility. Nick was different he never said no to any of my requests and put me at ease. I was surprised by how young he was when we first met yet he was inredibly knowledgeable and patient with my needs. The holiday party for the firm went very well even though the power went out halfway through! Nick's food was fantastic, especially the lamb slider and little raviolis! I would reccomend FIG in the future.
I recently hired Cornbread26 to catered a cocktail party for 50 people. I was so impressed with food and overall service. They were able to meet all my needs helping make my event a true success. Thank you Cornbread26! Alan Kempske
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!
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!
I hired elemental catering for my husbands 30 birthday and I struck gold! There food and presentation was absolutely stunning. Everything had a fine dining touch to it. It was very professional and elegant. I am definitely going to hire them again next time I need a caterer. Everyone at the party keeps taking about the food, and many of my friends want to hire them for their parties. Thanks again :)
