"This was the best food!" EVERYONE Ellen catered to for our dinner last evening could not get over how delicious their meals were. There are not enough words of gratitude I can share with her or any of you who are considering to hire her for your event. Ellen is concise when reaching out with her menus, her menus are organized by cuisine (making it easy to discuss), her response time is excellent, there are no hidden last minute charges, she shows up at the agreed time, is able to work in a challenging kitchen (we are in an office with a no flame policy and she made do with sternos), her food presentation is attractive and appetizing, and she is an absolute gem to work with. I have been in the food and beverage industry for 20 years, worked with many many chefs and Ellen is the real deal. Our group was falling behind and dinner service was delayed by close to 45 minutes. She made sure the main courses were still hot and of the best integrity, which is difficult to do when serving poultry and fish. Everything was seasoned beautifully with a variety of flavors with each course. Truly, the whole experience was magical and I can't wait to work with her again. Thank you so much Ellen!
Chef Chris was fantastic - had a great attitude, made things easy (from menu choice to clean up) and cooked up some amazingly delicious food! Made a reunion of some old friends into a special evening. Highly recommend!
Under Lauren's expert direction and her team's (Liz, Helen and Bob) execution we had a fantastic 70th Birthday party. Not only was Chef Lauren's food extraordinary but the setup ( arrangement of furniture, bar and buffet table ) was exquisite. Each and every guest was bowled over by the tasty food ( including passed hors d'oeuvres, entrees, side dishes and passed desserts) as well as the warm and friendly staff. If your goal is to have a memorable event, you should choose Bacco Catered Events.
Hello, I just want to mention that this is the first time I write a review. I decided to write this one because truly Charley is an outstanding chef who truly made our night memorable. There are no words to describe how great the food was and the service Charley provided. I have no doubt in my mind that I will be connecting with him again in the near future for other events. So, thank you Charley, we truly appreciated it.
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.
This was last minute, and I haven't had better from chefs who had days to prepare. The menu was well suited to the occasion, the presentation was elegant and the taste good the the last bite. Thanks Wayne
When you hire Manjar you know your event is in excellent hands! Their exquisite taste and attention to details has made our "tight budgets" into a beautiful celebration of food, decor, and specialty mocktail & cocktails. His team treats each event as if you are part of their family. Over the last 7months, I have had the pleasure of working with their event team & chefs on at least 10 events, including new product launches, corporate, wedding, and celebratory events in NJ private estates, galleries, retail environments & nyc apartments. The guests rave about the service & food. At the most recent event, my client was very demanding, last minute, with specific dietary needs... Manjar surpassed my expectations. I would recommend them for any event from a french service sit-down dinner, graduation celebration, to a summer garden cocktail party. Trust them with what you need and you will not be disappointed! Great events, all of the details attended to, and great results so you can enjoy your own event!
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 Im extremely happy I hired her company because it was worth every penny.
Amazing meal and easy to work with. I have hired many chefs but Aless was one of the best. All my guests were impressed.
Chef Martin was amazing! He is wonderful to work with, has inventive menus, a very reasonable rate and, most importantly, delicious food! The 100 guests at my 40th birthday party absolutely loved the Asian menu he prepared. It was a fantastic evening. Thank you Chef Martin! We will be sure to call you again for our next fete.
We had a wonderful time at our group cooking class at La Pulperia. Chef Carlos and his team were so gracious (accommodating of food allergies) and the food was delicious - empanadas, salmon tartar, guacamole and ricotta gnocchi (which we learned how to make). We enjoyed making one of their signature cocktails and sipped wine (and tequila). Thanks to Chef Carlos and everyone at La Pulperia for such a fun and unique time. Also, thanks so much to Tyler for setting everything up!
5 + Stars. Peter is an exceptional talented and skilled chef. His food and presentation are impeccable and he is lovely to work with. He prepared a unique Texas themed menu and the Texans said it was the best brisket they've ever had--that is a true compliment. Thank you Peter--Susan C.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Melissa! She was very responsive and supportive throughout the planning process and she was extremely helpful in creating the perfect menu and details for our event. On the night of the event Melissa professional and thoughtful as well as tons of fun. The food was outstanding and she did a amazing job of making the whole dinner feel so special! It was the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion and I can say confidently that Chef Melissa's personal touch was the key factor in making it such a success! I would highly, highly recommend Chef Melissa!!!
We had a wonderful experience with Chef Via Melissa!! Everything was delicious and it was a night to remember! We would highly recommend Melissa to all our friends!
Chef Oscar and his staff were outstanding. They pulled off dinner for 30 in a private home with the guests mingling around in the kitchen, which is no small feat. We are already booking him for our next event!
Chef daves is amazing I enjoyed my experience with him he always make sure I understand before he move to next step highly recommend
The chefs are most accomodating to my dietary needs all the while making me feel like I'm not missing out on the foods I love. I was served a delicious and completely Vegan Mexican inspired dip that was seasoned perfectly and was creamy and "meaty". Their food was amazing!
Chef Pearl is a very professional and easy to work with person! She managed to make make cake only a few days after order and made it so beautiful! She always responds fast. If you are looking for a person who will make your life easier, hire Chef Pearl! It took me 10 minutes of phone conversation with her and my wedding cake order was done. And the cake turned out beautiful and delicious!
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.
Chef Nirva was nothing short of amazing. The food was delicious, well prepared and the aroma of the food was amazing. She was professional the entire time and friendly. She arrived on time and the food was ready on time.. I would recommend her and use her again.
Delicious professionally prepared and cooked food delivered to our door! Our family receives breakfast, lunch and dinner and we can't believe we didn't do this a long time ago. Since I'm not able to make our meals anymore we struggled for a while until we spoke to Maison Prive Chefs. They understand our dietary needs and clearly strive to help people. I asked to change one thing and it was done immediately. They make sure we are happy with the food and service all the time. Maison Prive is truly a blessing for us and I would recommend it to everyone!
