I would highly recommend Renegade Outpost to my colleagues, family, and friends. I planned a cocktail party and had a short lead time to coordinate food and beverages. I reached out to 4 potential chefs and Chef Ellen's response was very prompt. She concisely outlined my options and was able to put together a diverse, seasonal food and beverage menu that fit my budget. We were able to finalize the plans in 24 hours. Her team showed up the day of the event and quickly set up. All I had to do was provide a table and they took care of all the other details. Our menu consisted of 6 passed hors-d'oeuvres and an outdoor bar. The hors-d'oeuvres were hearty and flavorful, and each one was better than the next. Many of my guests commented on how much they enjoyed the food. When hosting a party, the last thing I want to do is worry about serving my guests food and drinks. Her team was friendly, professional, and provided excellent service. I would definitely hire Chef Ellen 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!

We have used Bacco for three events now and I look forward to having them at our next party! Our guests rave about the delicious food and Chef Lauren and her staff could not be better to work with. I know that I do not have to worry about a thing when I hire Bacco. I would highly recommend this catering company.

Chef Charly is an amazing and talented chef. From the food presentation, menu selection to the taste buds all was perfect at my dinner. Having traveled around the world and eaten in many Michelin-starred restaurants and the best restaurants in NY, Chef Charly is at that level of talent and professionalism. I strongly recommend him for small or large group dinners. Looking forward to many more dinners with Chef Charly.

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.

Chef Wayne hands down provided my " now " Fiance and I with one of the most fantastic meals we have ever had. The seared steak was cooked to perfection and the onion jam on top of it, wow, feLt like I could eat it with anything. So delicious! Chef was also generous enough to record me proposing to my girlfriend. We ended the night with our families surprises my girlfriend and the chef had dessert for 10 and champagne already prepared just waiting for the cue.5 stars around the board. Can't wait to have another meal!

Chef Dan was wonderful. We discussed dishes, presentation, and delivery method prior to the event. Preparing dinner for a large group can be challenging but Chef Dan & Brianna executed everything perfectly and in a timely manner. My guests and I loved the food. Chef Dan was very professional. I highly recommend him!

Chef Melissa and her team provided private chef services for lunch for 15 of my private clients across a two-day retreat event in New York City. Even though it was solely lunch, it was three courses which she started with a custom beverage. She provided glasses, flatware and dinnerware. She also provided a printed menu for each person for each day's menu. A full on experience. My clients LOVED her presence. I would like to also mention, two days before the event, the venue I booked had a fire and we had to move at the last minute. Chef Melissa took it all in stride, changed the menu slightly and kept right on going - a testimony to her professionalism and experience. If you want a positive experience, pay for the best.

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.

JP catered a party for us of about 40 adults and 20 kids and we had a great experience working with him - highly recommend his services! He was responsive and flexible during the planning phase, able to modify his gameplan day-of when our rooftop venue got rained out :( and prepped and served the food efficiently, beautifully and notably, without needing anything from us as hosts, letting us truly enjoy the party. On top of all that, all the guests loved the food itself and several have inquired about contacting JP for their own events. I’m happy to make those connections because JP is truly a great chef and a consummate professional!

I just hosted a very successful new year eve dinner party for 15 catered by Jeffrey. He was professional responsive, punctual and most importantly a great chef. 4 different hors d'oeuvres were served during cocktail hours before we sat down for a delicious 5 course dinner. I will definitely use Jeff again.

Chef was great to work with. Brought me and my wife great suggestions. It felt like a team effort when trying to create a menu for our anniversary party. He was at our home early to get started. He had consideration with our space, when he was done, everything was left back to the way it was. He made our guests feel like they were at 5 star restaurant. Definitely recommend!

Excellent experience. Chef Nirva cooked a three course meal, Mediterranean inspired, for my birthday for myself and 9 guests. She made the hummus from scratch and the lamb meatballs were my favorite. The main course was a light yet flavorful rosemary chicken, followed by a chocolate dessert. Chef not only presented the dishes just like at a restaurant, but she explained to everyone how she made the dishes. Thanks so much for making my birthday a great experience!

After vetting several chefs, I knew once I spoke to Germaine that she was the one I would hire. Her positive energy, patience, and level of professionalism were amazing. She held a private tasting for my husband and I at her home and it was clear how much time she put into not just preparing a great meal, but the overall presentation. Needless to stay my event was amazing, the food was delicious as was the service. I would highly recommend Germaine and will most certainly be hiring her again for any of my future events!

WOW!!!! I hired Chef Maria for my event this weekend and got so much more than i expected. Chef Maria offered us a soft sampling a few days prior to the event to ensure we were pleased with the menu selected, I WAS BLOWN AWAY!!! Then the day of the event she came 30 minutes early to help set up (btw amazing eye for detail), which was great because it was only me and my best friend and it was a lot of work. Anyway, i leave to get ready and when i return i am knocked off my feet!! The place is so vibrant and the food fragrance was amazing. As my guest arrived they too were in awe. As the party progressed it got even better. Chef Maria was interactive with my guest she didn't just stand there and mechanically hand out meals, she carried light conversation, she even had a cocktail centerpiece included in her package that was just a delight to watch be served. I wish i could post pictures here!! Hands down this Chef was the best experience i've had in a while(and get this she's like soooo young), HIRE HER you can thank me later lol! Ali'Cea
