Ellen Deluise catered a wedding reception for me for 150 people. I selected a traditional menu but Ellen provided several other menu options to choose from. She was very professional, easy to work with and was quick to respond to phone calls. The quality of the food and presentation were excellent. I would definitely hire her again in the future.

Matt was great! I hired him as the bartender for my five hour, one hundred person, full open bar wedding reception. He handled the demands of the night perfectly. Even with us making some last minute changes and additions, he took on the task. Keeping the drinks flowing for 100 guests with an extensive and diverse bar menu for five hours could get messy. It didn’t. All the guests were very happy. He’s knowledgeable and professional. Leading up to the event, he advised us on how to prepare for the night. He showed up on time, got right to work, did what was asked of him, and is very reasonably priced. I would definitely hire him again.

My husband and I hired Chef Chris to treat my (at the time future) in-laws to a relaxing dinner in their home as our wedding gift to them. Chris worked with them to create their ultimate menu and the results were nothing less than superb! They raved about the food, Chef Chris's skill in the kitchen, and how wonderful he was to work with. We would hire him again in a New York minute!

Chef Lauren and her team of artists and service providers were on time, well planned, very accommodating, incredibly kind and made everyone feel so comfortable. They are also amazingly talented, on the spot with every planned serving and presentation and very reasonable. I am so pleased with their work and they made my wedding day so very special for my entire wedding party! My guests said it was the best food they ever had at a wedding!!! Brian Fox

Tamara and her team catered our wedding reception (about 100 guests). She also did day of coordination and set up for the event. The day and night ran smoothly and the food was delicious (one of our guests told me the appetizers were the best she had ever had). The staff was friendly and helpful. Additionally, Tamara was flexible and amenable to our requests. She responded to our questions promptly.

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!

Adolfo and his team catered our wedding reception in our backyard last weekend, and everything was amazing! When we met Adolfo during the planning stages, we felt comfortable with him and knew our reception and guests would be in good hands. Everyone was so professional and kind and helpful and the food was delicious. They helped make the reception run smoothly (even when the rain changed the set up slightly), and I didn't have to think about anything once they arrived. I really could not recommend them more highly! I would definitely hire them again.

What a pleasure it was to have Joe cater our wedding reception last weekend. We found LCI Caterers here on yelp and checked out his menu. We were instantly drawn to the variety of items represented in his offerings. We didn't want to go with the typical 'Italian' fare of many wedding receptions these days (no offense to those who choose that but we wanted variety). On Joe's menu there was Spanish, Southern, BBQ, Jamaican, and yes, Italian too as well as a zillion other things which is just what we wanted. Joe helped us configure balanced items that worked well together. My fiancé (now husband) and I went to meet Joe for a tasting. OH MY GOSH!!! The food was incredible! His peril was off the hook! So moist and flavorful. The BBQ beef brisket was tender and melted in our mouths. Penne a la vodka - yeah an Italian dish - was incredible- flavored just right and not overly creamy which is just perfect for my taste. We left with our mouths salivating for more. Our wedding day arrived and Joe's crew set everything up beautifully. We went with all the foods at our tasting as well as rice and beans, garlic mashed potatoes, grilled veggies, - oh - and the crab cakes for appetizers with a cilantro aioli - TO DIE FOR!!!!!! Just writing this review has me hungry for more!!! Joe himself showed up with his staff and they all did an amazing job taking care of us and our guests. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the experience provided by Joe's staff. The servers went above and beyond, making sure everyone had what they needed, picking up after guests were done, and being so pleasant and professional the entire time. Joe himself was a real sweetheart from beginning to end, working out our menu, being warm and friendly on the phone as well as in person, and even doing the honors of cutting our wedding cake and figuring out the coffee maker I rented from another company and had no idea how to use! We had a wonderful experience with Joe and his crew and would highly recommend him to anyone who wants tasty food, excellent customer service, and a warm friendly yet professional catering experience. Thumbs up all the way!

Simply put, we couldn't have had our wedding without Ana! We did all the wedding planning, but wanted to have someone coordinate the schedule and logistics on our wedding day. Ana was absolutely perfect!! She was diligent in attending our final meeting and rehearsal, and offered invaluable advice leading up to the wedding. On the wedding day, Ana and her assistant were professional, attentive and very organized throughout the event. Before my husband and I walked out for our first dance, Ana even noticed he was chewing gum and ran over to tell Doug to spit it out! We appreciate Ana for all she contributed to our beautiful wedding, and I encourage everyone to work with her! It's one of the best investments we made for our wedding. - The Wongs

My company was throwing a last-minute cocktail reception for investors and I'd panicked worrying that we wouldn't be able to find someone to organize the event on such short notice. Tyler exceeded our expectations AND didn't break the bank! We'll definitely be reaching out to HighLife again!

Peter and his professional staff made the event painless and enjoyable (at-home cocktail party wedding reception for 68 people). They worked efficiently behind the scenes during the event so I never had to worry about food and beverage serving. Beautiful presentation, impeccable service with a smile, and most importantly - tasty! They set up 4 hours in advance and cleaned up our home exactly as they found it.

My wife and I hired Above and Beyond Hosting for our small wedding BBQ reception at our house and they exceeded all of our expectations! Jackie waited the event and Alyssa tended bar and they were a perfect team. We briefed Jackie before the event (and we did such a poor job doing so since we were preoccupied with getting ready for the wedding ceremony lol) and she totally ran with it. Every single guest of ours was so impressed at how professional and friendly they were. One of our young nieces was even tailing them throughout the event and they were both so patient and affectionate with her, in fact at one point Jackie was walking around with Melinda in arm! On top of that they even ran to the store to pickup milk!!! Alyssa made fantastic drinks, plates and clutter was cleared, left overs were wrapped and stored, glasses and stemware washed - there was nothing to cleanup at the end of the night / the next morning. Jackie and Alyssa were so on top of things that my wife and I were able to enjoy the party and interact with our guests. Jackie and Alyssa saw how busy we were with our guests, the photographer and the day in general that they even prepared us plates of food to make sure we would eat! Our reception ended up being perfect and it wouldn't have happened without them! The company name suits them well. We recommend that you use Above and Beyond for your next event as they will exceed your expectations. We will definitely use them in the future at our next event. Thank you Jackie and Alyssa!

Open Skies Hospitality has catered quite a few events for us, both large and small, and we couldn't be happier. Chef Albert is extremely talented, so food is always delicious. He adapts the menu and format to fit our needs, from a formal wedding reception for180 guests, to passed hors d'oeuvres and a buffet for 240. The whole team at Open Skies is top-notch in every way: trustworthy, honest, well-organized, kind, flexible and helpful.

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.

Brenda and the Celestial Touch Catering Team are not only friendly, and easy to get along with, they worked for my daughter's bridal shower as if they were doing hosting the event for their own daughter. During my initial consultation with Brenda, we went over food choices at which time she offered many suggestions to give me the best options within my budget. On the day of the event the food was presented beautifully, and was an epicurean's delight. We so enjoyed the food and relationship that was developed that we booked Celestial Touch for my daughter's rehersal diner and wedding reception.

Hiring Ron and Miracle Catering for my wedding on 9/10/16 was the best decision we could have made. From the very start, Ron was very professional and quick to respond to all questions and inquiries. He set up a taste testing before the wedding at my parent's house and from that moment on, we were sold. The food was amazing! I never was that excited about a salad before. Ron was also flexible with planning a menu around our needs and style as we wanted an appetizer/station only wedding that was heavily vegetarian. Ron provided helpful suggestions to make the menu diverse and well-rounded. Ron and his team were able to manage our difficult venue setting that had little indoor space and no kitchen. The day of our wedding went so smoothly mainly due to the staff at Miracle Catering. We rented linens through them and Ron's team did a beautiful job setting up the room without any directions. The staff were so friendly and helpful the entire night. The food was beautifully displayed. All of our guests raved about the food that included brie and roasted apple crostini, tacos, mini burgers, tomato soup shooters with grilled cheese, dumplings, mini baked potatoes with goat cheese just to name a few! We had a pasta station and an Asian station (that had a beef/chicken and a tofu stir fry option). We also used Ron's baker and the cakes were delicious and went perfectly with the ice cream sundae bar. My only regret is that I did not eat more at my wedding and did not take home a doggie bag. I am actively seeking another opportunity to hire Miracle Catering again and would highly recommend them for any event.

Bella Couture helped plan my wedding and provided alot of creative ideas to make the day special. They are very well organized and dealt with all my vendors. I was always secure in knowing that all the details would be taken of. The day of the wedding we were able to really enjoy the party knowing that they were present and watching the entire flow of the event. Our guests said the wedding was "perfect."
