Chuck was AMAZING to work with! I threw a lot of curve balls his way during the planning process and he was extremely flexible and accommodating. I would highly recommend Every Detail Catering based on delicious food and superb service!

Matt was great for my event. From the start, he was very responsive and helped provide the list of what to buy. He also alleviated some of the planning by catering the appetizers which made it super helpful. We hired 1 server and 1 bartender-- which we definitely should've hired one more person for the amount of guests we had-- but the two were super helpful. Even when it was down pouring, Matt continued to help and serve guests. I would absolutely recommend Matt. If you are even thinking about having servers at your event, definitely go with Santisi Catering!

All I can say is WOW! We hired chef Chris and his team at NY Catering Service super last minute, as our original caterer backed out two days before the event. We couldn’t believe what this company was able to pull together on such short notice for a large group of 150 people!! The food, staff, decor, everything was perfect and Chris was so helpful from the very start. Communicative, professional, and reassuring. I guess it was a blessing in disguise that the other guy canceled. We’ll be using Chef Chris and NY Catering Service for all our future events! Highly recommended!

Lauren and her team were unbelievable to work with. Lauren was very responsive from planning through execution. We were in constant communication and she managed to make all my requests work and then some. The food was raved about the whole day. The staff was wonderful and attentive to all my guests. Everyone could not stop complimenting them. I will definitely be using Bacco Catering and Lauren again for future events!

Tamara catered an in-store cocktail party for 70 people/ 2.5 hours. We were very impressed with all aspects of the booking and service. She gave us a fantastic menu to choose from and worked within our budget and wants even going above and beyond by providing additional menu options we did not request. Tamara was able to work in a small space and the entire event was seamless - I highly recommend Tamara for your catering needs.

We recently had a surprise birthday party for our daughter in the Armonk DeCicco’s on the mezzanine level. It was fantastic. Francesca, who organized the catering, made it very easy for us to plan the party. The staff was also very professional and took care of any of our needs. The evening was a great success due to them. They even packed up the excess food for us to take home. The food was delicious and our guests commented on how tasty it was. We are glad we chose DeCicco’s as our venue.

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

Best experience ever. We needed a bartender for a private birthday party I was organizing for my boss and took a chance on hiring HighLife. Not only did we get a bartender but we got Tyler himself - the owner of HighLife. He was amazing. Our chef we hired from a different company was a disaster and Tyler took it upon himself to help serve the meals, set the tables with wine glasses, pour water/wine throughout dinner, not to mention making the best margaritas on the planet. Extremely reasonable prices with top notch service that is so hard to find these days. Next party I organize I will simply call Tyler. Whether I need a bartender, chef, catering, etc - HighLife will be my only phone call. Thanks for everything!

Peter and his team were absolutely amazing. Not only was he great at communicating with me prior to the event, but he also offered many delicious options for the menu to ensure there would be something for everyone at my party. The team was on time and very respectful of the staff and the space, putting together a lovely set-up with flowers (!) that made the event feel that much more special. The food and drinks were delicious. My personal favorite were the pulled pork sliders and mojitos, but everyone raved about how delicious all of our appetizers were. Peter even sent a special plate over to me (the host) to ensure I'd have a chance both to eat and sample his delicious menu. I cannot say enough about the friendliness of him and his staff throughout the night. They were just so thoughtful and professional. I would (and will!) absolutely hire Peter and Creative Table Catering again in the future. My friends were also very impressed by him and the value of the services he offered at my event. In a city with innumerable options for caterers, I would highly recommend Peter for any event you have. He made my special night a celebration to remember.

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.

Harvest Speciality Catering did an amazing job at our family and friends BBQ on 5/28/17. Everyone loved the delicious food, service, and excitement of having a food truck come to our driveway. The professionalism of Jason and his assistant was truly remarkable. I highly recommend Harvest and can't wait to hire them again for another fun event!

Claude and Craig were fantastic, catering events on 3 consecutive days for me a week ago, with less than 2 weeks to do it. They were very kind, and are talented, producing a spread each day that everyone enjoyed a lot, and were punctual, swift in setting up and breaking down, which they did discretely as the party continued on around them. The well-abled duo was able to handle a somewhat complex arrangement in a short window (and popular time) with excellent communication, and offered competitive rates, especially for the use of better ingredients (organic & non-GMO). I would and have already recommended them to friends. Unique dishes, down-home style cooking, with flairs of other cultures mixed in - thoroughly enjoyable. The veggie eggplant lasagna was a big hit, among others.

It was an amazing experience having Milt, Janet and their crew as our caterers. They arrived early to set up and be prepared for our guest. The food was AMAZING!!!! I cannot get over their stuffed mushrooms, those delicious little chicken quesadilla, OMG the shrimp cocktail...I can sit here and name every single dish we ordered and tell the world what an amazing experience it was for my taste buds and my guest will say the same. I will continue to work with Studio Event Staffing for all my future events. Not only were they professional, they were very friendly and warm--they have an awesome team put together!!
