"This was the best food!" EVERYONE Ellen catered to for our dinner last evening could not get over how delicious their meals were. There are not enough words of gratitude I can share with her or any of you who are considering to hire her for your event. Ellen is concise when reaching out with her menus, her menus are organized by cuisine (making it easy to discuss), her response time is excellent, there are no hidden last minute charges, she shows up at the agreed time, is able to work in a challenging kitchen (we are in an office with a no flame policy and she made do with sternos), her food presentation is attractive and appetizing, and she is an absolute gem to work with. I have been in the food and beverage industry for 20 years, worked with many many chefs and Ellen is the real deal. Our group was falling behind and dinner service was delayed by close to 45 minutes. She made sure the main courses were still hot and of the best integrity, which is difficult to do when serving poultry and fish. Everything was seasoned beautifully with a variety of flavors with each course. Truly, the whole experience was magical and I can't wait to work with her again. Thank you so much Ellen!

Charly did a wonderful job on short notice. He was prompt, very personable, and made us a delicious meal that felt more authentic than any restaurant. You take for granted eating in restaurants where you can see the food being prepared or speak with the chef. When Charly described the dish, ingredients, and how he prepared the meal I felt much more connected to what I was enjoying and I really sensed the passion Charly has for his food quality, joy of cooking, and personalized customer service. Highly recommend!

Tamara and her Amoraco team were truly exceptional. Before the event, Tamara was responsive, readily accepting our preferences and changes to the menu she proposed and very reasonable in her pricing. She, Tara and Jean arrived as scheduled one hour before the party and needed minimal guidance before taking over the kitchen and starting to prepare the food. They worked diligently, professionally and with a beaming smile throughout the four hours we had hired them for. The food was inventive and delicious, presented beautifully and in a timely fashion. When two of our guests spilled their drinks on the carpet, the quickly cleaned up the mess even though that was not easy. When they left, the kitchen was in an impeccable condition and our apartment looked as if the party had never taken place. We tip our hat (and so did our guests) to this great team, which offered excellent food, superior service and a worry-free event to the hosts.

Daniel Dalessio is a very impressive chef. He made a three-course meal consisting of Caesar salad, lobster ravioli, and a Crème brûlée for my friends and I. Needless to say, we expected the food to be good, but it completely blew us away!! The ingredients were very fresh and the food was prepared perfectly. I definitely recommend Chef Dalessio to everyone and will have him catering my family's parties for years to come!!!

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.

Erika's versatility is fantastic, ranging from classic gourmet meals, to special diets, to everyday healthy, home-cooked meals. We had the luxury of hiring her for two weeks to cook daily meals for our family while teaching our three teenage boys basic skills in the kitchen. They loved it! She also prepared a scrumptious menu and cooked for our large Christmas celebration with extended family. We cannot sing her praises enough and will be hiring Erika again for future parties and daily meals for our family.

Ms. Puentes did a spectacular job for our film's craft services this past August. The food was exceptional - she provided 3 options for each meal, with a vegetarian option as one of them. Each day the cuisine was different and coordinated throughout the meals. Our favorite was the Italian day!! She delivered on time and within budget. I would hire Ms. Puentes again for all my film shoots' craft services needs.

I would highly recommend Chef Stenneth. In addition to a great meal, he was very attentive and made sure everyone had the right meal (some people had some major dietary restrictions in my party of 5). I asked for some special wine as well and he delivered as promised. He is a true professional, and deserves all the stars available.

Our baby was born and we were totally overwhelmed, either not eating or ordering in unhealthy food. Melissa, came to our home once a week and set us up with the easiest and most delicious meals. They were healthy and she easily fit into the strictly Kosher kitchen that we have. To our surprise, she knew all the rules and was so wonderful to have around! She's a star and we wish we could have her every day but she is understandably in high demand!

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we wound up hiring Yvonne only a few weeks before our event, my husband’s 70th birthday party. The party was for 23 people and we wanted it catered in our apartment. Feeling very stressed that the planning was so last minute, Yvonne’s warm personal demeanor, her professionalism, responsiveness, and suggestions regarding the menu and even how to arrange our apartment to accommodate everyone, were extremely helpful in pulling it all together and alleviating our worries. We just had to concern ourselves with preparing our apartment while Yvonne and her assistant (who was also very pleasant and extremely capable) handled the rest. And, they did a great job. Everyone complimented us on the food and enjoyed it very much. We were able to mingle with our guests without worrying about the food being served. Yvonne even made sure my mom had her dinner prepared according to her own specific dietary needs. Yvonne is clearly very committed to doing the very best she can and aims to please her clients. We definitely recommend Yvonne.
