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!

We had a birthday party for 30 adults. Kim was the greatest - on time, prepared, professional, friendly and courteous. She came prepared knowing our featured drink ahead of time. She helped set up and clean up and kept the guests well attended to during the event. She quickly blended in and became part of the fun to help make the event a classy occasion and success. Thanks Kim!

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!

AMORACO CATERING DID AN EXCEPTIONAL JOB FOR MY PARTY! I HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF HAVING THIS COMPANY CATER TO THE GUESTS OF ABOUT 40-45 @MY HUSBAND'S BIRTHDAY PARTY. AMORACO,WHOSE EXECUTIVE CHEF IS TAMARA SHENKLE PRESENTED THE OCCASION WITH PROFESSIONALISM, COURTESY, AND, ABOVE ALL-- MOUTH-CATERING CUISINE! AMORACO TOOK CARE OF EVERYTHING: TASTEFUL DECO' (MATCH FOR THE OCCASION), TABLE LININGS, CHINA, CUTLERY ETC.BIRTHDAY CAKE WAS WELL PREPARED AND DECORATED! THE FOOD WAS VERY FRESH, DELECTABLE AND DELICATE. THE MINI LOBSTER ROLLS, CRAB CAKES, MUSHROOM WONTONS WITH BLACK TRUFFLES ARE STILL A HUGE BUZZ AMONG SOME OF MY GUESTS. FRESH HOMEMADE GOURMET DOES REALLY MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN A WELL PREPARED CUISINE. WITH AN EXECUTIVE CHEF LIKE TAMARA, I WILL STRONGLY RECOMMEND AMORACO CATERING. MY HUSBAND WAS VERY HAPPY AND CONTENT.

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.

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.

My husband and I hosted an intimate birthday dinner party for our daughter, her boyfriend and guest visiting from Belgium and a couple of close friends. Each of them enjoyed the salmon and lamb chops, the presentation of the appetizers and salad was great. We had a great experience with Chef Aless. We would definitely consider her again for future events. Leila and Gerhard Mueller

Chef Martin is amazing! He was so communicative and set an amazing menu from the beginning. His prices are also much more reasonable fair than other caterers I’ve spoken with. We used him for our daughters birthday party, and we had 60 guests. On the day of the event, Chef went above and beyond to ensure he provided a beautiful presentation, delicious food, and professional service. I would highly recommend!

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!! :)

I had a 1st Birthday Party for my daughter. The food was amazing and everything I was looking for. I had cuban cuisine and the pork shoulder just remind me of my childhood. I was so good. I truly could say I'm still craving the food and wish I didn't give left over to my guest that wanted more and keep it for myself.

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.

Brenda is the consummate caterer. For my 50th birthday party, she took the menu crafted for the event, and prepared all of the food with love and expertise. Further, the presentation and service of the menu - spectacular! Next major event I have, Brenda and crew will be a part of it!
