Kimberly was a perfect fit for our party. She was sub contracted by Matt (Santisi Catering) and we couldn't be more pleased. She was friendly and all our guests feel relaxed with a pleasant nature. She went beyond her bartending responsibilities by helping us clean dishes, clear garbage and straighten up our kitchen. We would definitely use Santisi Catering again and would love to have Kimberly return.

Chef Charly did a fantastic job catering a dinner I hosted at my home for 20 people. He cooked several delicious French dishes, delivered them on time and was very easy to work with. I highly recommend him.

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 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.

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.

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.

Woking with Adolfo was a total pleasure, he was very responsible and responsive whenever we contacted him. He came a week before to check the location which helped a lot to have a smooth and a pleasant event. The presentation and the taste of the appetizers was excellent and main course was great as well. Manjar's captain was an excellent leader he was on top of what needed to be done during the party and always with a smile which made it easy to work with and ask him questions. I will recommend Manjar's services to anyone who is looking for a catering company.

I met Erika and savored her cooking during a private week long health retreat in Hudson, NY. Erika's cooking was mouth watering, innovative and used local and mostly organic ingredients. All the participants also lost quite a few pounds that week while not feeling deprived and celebrating food! I strongly recommend Erika for catering, health retreats and teaching ....

Chef Martin, his delicious food, warm disposition, meticulous attention to detail and easygoing charm were probably the best part of our wedding day. Right from the start we knew he would make our day perfect in every way. He immediately understood our needs, helped us find the best solutions and always had a positive attitude and a jovial ease. The food was perfect and his staff was lovely and professional. We'd love to work with him again some time soon and are pleased to recommend him for any of your event/party catering needs.

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.

Our experience with Harvest Specialty Catering and Jason was all that I could ask for. We chose this company for our daughter's barn wedding. Initially, Jason was willing to work with us for a limited portion of our event, something many caterers are NOT willing to do. After time (and a taste testing!) we opted to use him for all but dessert (we had a friend doing the cake.) We so appreciated his flexibility and willingness to work with us. He accommodated us and our changing needs at all points of our journey, even in the midst of his own challenges with equipment issues. We never knew about his difficulties until later, and not from Jason but the venue staff, as he and his crew pulled off a wonderful dinner. Our wedding guests were very complimentary of the food. On every level, we were thrilled with our choice. I would highly recommend this company for your event, whatever it may be.

I recently held a launch event with an invite list of over 50 guests, and I was stressing about a caterer. Everyone I called was either too expensive, didn't have enough dishes to meet the dietary restrictions of my guests, or the menu just didn't look appetizing. I met Sara at a community event in our neighborhood (we both live in Bed Stuy), and I was complaining about how unaffordable and unhealthy the catering options were available to us in our neighborhood. After just one minute of Sara telling me about her private catering service I knew it was the perfect fit. I don't know if it was her genuine passion for healthy eating or her charisma for her work in the community, but I loved working with Sara from start to finish. She even came to the venue and gave me an in person consultation as to what dishes she thought would be best for the event, and included ingredients I told her I could not live without! (avocado please!) The result? Happy guests who could not get enough of Sara's delectable dishes. The vegans, the vegetarians, the pescatarians, gluten free, and of course the carnivores asking me who had curated such wonderful treats! I look forward to working with Sara again. She is definitely my go-to chef for all my catering needs.

Last summer 2016, I had a small intimate brunch for close friends. Cornbread26, were in charge of catering and serving. My friends enjoyed a wonderful vegan spread that consisted of ; crab sliders, macaroni and cheese , and a mouth watering vegetable melody !!! Their signature guava sangria was there to seal this perfect afternoon with friends. Their services was top notch, professional and satisfying and I will be using Cornbread26, this summer for my annual brunch event.

Elemental Catering catered a one year birthday party for my twins. They were very professional, worked with me on creating a perfect menu. The food was delicious, and at the end they cleaned after themselves. I would definitely hire Elemental Catering for my next event.
