She was on-time, friendly and accommodated a few off-collar hors d'oeuvre menu requests. She explained the dishes as she served them and even threw in an additional appetizer for good measure. The only minor drawback is that she had another even scheduled right after this event, so people felt a little rushed during dinner and dessert. I'd work with Ellen again in a heartbeat. Recommended? Highly.

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!

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.

Chef Chris catered the New York City Food and Wine festival for my company and to say he hit the mark is an understatement. His outgoing personality right off the bat made the overall experience absolutely incredible. He was sincere in his work and in his responsibility to get the job done. The food was beyond epic. He had this amazing appetizer that was out of this world called the Perfect Bite. And let me tell you--it was more than perfect! It had to be one of the most amazing things I have ever tasted. It was perfectly smoked crispy prosciutto, brie cheese, and granny smith apples. The combinations of flavors were mouth watering. I, along with everyone else at the festival kept on coming back for more. It was such a hit! His staff was also extremely professional and did such a tremendous job getting the food together. There was never a moment someone was not at our booth trying the food. The feedback from my team and reactions from the people at the festival were overwhelmingly wonderful. He was such a great advocate for my company and I cannot wait to book him again for another event. I truly cannot say enough about this guy.

I found Bacco Caterers on Thumbtack. I was impressed with the five stars and the reviews, so I contacted Chef Lauren to begin to see if she was the caterer for us—and was she ever! Joyce and I wanted to include our friends and family in our marriage anniversary celebration in our Brooklyn home. We are novice Open House hosts and Lauren advised us re details we would never have thought of, including in our menu selections. Her staff, chef Amanda and sous chef Laura, created freshly made hors d’hoeuvres in our kitchen as the party occurred, superb finger food that was varied, interesting, and delicious! People, including us, loved it. The servers Karen, Tony, and Kevin, and bartender Elroy were unobtrusively attentive and friendly to our guests. Our party took place on two floors and the yard, and the staff kept the food appearing and the empty glasses disappearing with seeming effortlessness. Many guests commented on how comfortable they made everyone feel, contributing to the general sense of joyousness. In spite of our request for no gifts, or perhaps because of it, many of our 50 guests brought flowers. As soon as I was handed the bouquets, Tony would appear and would arrange them in vases I had directed him to when flowers first arrived. I was free during the whole party to visit with my friends and family. I, who am not a party-person, enjoyed myself fully during this celebration, and I am grateful to Chef Lauren and her staff for the many ways (including a fantastic clean-up) they helped make that possible.

I used Tamara for my engagement party and she was fantastic! I had about 60 people and we started with passed h'ourderves during a cocktail hour in one room (she provided the staff and a bartender). While this happened she was setting up the buffet dinner in another room. She let me know when it was ready and then (timing was flawless) we moved into the second room for dinner. My friends and family raved about the food, which included gluten-free and vegan options as many had dietary restrictions. We had a French theme as I had gotten engaged in France and Tamara worked with me on a French menu, including a delicious chocolate-hazelnut crepe desert with fresh berries. She was totally on-point with timing, presentation, and professional execution, including proactively handling things like insurance with the building so it wasn't a hassle for me. The reason I initially chose her was because she was more reasonable than the other bids I received for caterers in New York but she offered identical services to what they had proposed and she went the extra mile the day of the event. I will definitely be using her again and I would highly recommend her to anyone. I am still receiving compliments on her food and the friendliness/professionalism of her staff.

Chef Dan through a family style dinner party at my house for my fifth anniversary. Having a little one doesn't make going out as fun as it use to be. I just wanted the feel of being at a restaurant without having to leave the comfort of my home especially since the kids could run around and entertain each other. We are big appetizer people so for appetizers we had spicy crab sliders, lamb sliders, tuna tartar, and duck flat bread. Everything was absolutely delicious! For the next course we had filet mignon with truffle goat cheese smashed potatoes! Also absolutely phenomenal! We opted to not go for dessert because we are not sweets people, but I have had the pleasure of sampling some of the desserts and they are also exquisite. My biggest concern prior to the party was the the price matched the quality and that no one left my table hungry (for that would be a disaster). The food exceeded our expectations and as for the amount, let's just say that all our guests came over the next day for lunch and we somehow still had left overs! I would absolutely recommend Chef Dan and know that personally, I will be using his services again!

We hosted a casual party for co-workers at our home with a pizza truck providing the main course. Luisa DeCicco Event Planning provided a salad, chips and guacamole and shrimp appetizer. Luisa and her staff were friendly, courteous and prompt. The food was delicious and the presentation was excellent. We will definitely use Luisa DeCicco Event Planning again!

Chef Erika prepared not only a delicious but a healthy dinner for myself and ten guests in my home, including appetizers and desserts. She worked patiently on the menu with me beforehand offering many options for my vegans guests. In fact, even the non vegan guests found the vegan options delectable!! Chef Erika and her crew shopped for the food, prepared and served the meal and cleaned up the kitchen when they were done. The two women she brought to assist her were amazing. It was such a lovely evening I have already hired Chef Erika for another dinner party in August!

Martin provided a lovely meal for a 9 guest dinner party at a home, and was very easy to collaborate with around the menu planning and coordination process. He arrived on time, was easy to get a hold of, and made a delicious meal! I would absolutely hire Martin for a service of this type again. My kitchen was left cleaner than when he arrived! A delight to work with and absolute professional.

Tyler bartended our dear friends' engagement party - and he was excellent! He quickly whipped up a fabulous signature cocktail with ingredients I had around the house, and it was a huge hit. He even stepped in to help me finish up some last appetizers, offering helpful suggestions and proactively finding his way throughout the apartment to make sure our guests were well taken care of. We will absolutely be using The High Life Productions in the future.

I couldn't have been happier with my experience with Alana at Most Wanted Chef. She created a wonderful menu for my dinner party in honor of my mother's 70th birthday. The food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. She was incredibly professional, friendly and made everything look effortless. It was truly a pleasure to work with her and I look forward to using her again soon. She makes entertaining at home incredibly easy, graceful and fun. I would definitely recommend her for your next party.

Melissa was great. We had an in-depth conversation up front about our dietary restrictions including a shellfish allergy, a gluten sensitivity, and a dairy sensitivity within our party. Overall, we were aiming for a vegan meal. She worked with us and gave us multiple suggestions on dinner options based on our likes and dislikes. She even came by the house to provide samples of her dishes before the event. The night of the event, she did a great job executing appetizers, dinner, and dessert. The food was delicious and she left our kitchen in better shape than she found. I highly recommend Melissa as your next personal chef!

Our daughter's shower, rehearsal dinner, post wedding refreshment hour, wedding reception, and the renewal of my husband & my 30 year renewal of vows was all catered by Brenda and the wonderful team of "Celestial Touch". Now what's amazing about all of this was not simply that the food at all the events was absolutely flavorful, fresh & delicious but each menu was inherently different-salads, light dinner, appetizers, signature drinks, full course dinner, desert bar with chocolate fountain. The food was presented beautifully, was graciously served, and was absolutely delicious. Brenda & her team promised that all would go excellently and through their prayers, diligent work, and love of what they do, each event was a marked success. Book them for your next event, you will be absolutely delighted!

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.

Little Pleasures provided an upfront and honest quote with no hidden service charges like some other caterers. Their professionalism was amazing. I felt at ease while planning my event with them!
