I hired Brenda to teach a cocktail class at the beginning of this month and could not have been more pleased with how the entire evening went. Brenda was extremely diligent throughout the planning process, keeping in constant communication ensuring the class would go off without a hitch. From proposing a cocktail menu, organizing a shopping list, and preparing materials, her attention to detail was nothing short of amazing. The day of the event, Brenda arrived in ample time to prepare, even making a welcome cocktail to start things off in a more casual and entertaining way. Throughout the evening, she went above and beyond, making the participants feel at ease. Her cocktails were well crafted, extremely balanced, and on par with some of the best cocktail programs in the city. I look forward to working with Brenda on another occasion and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a competent, personable bartender for their events!

Ellen was amazing! We had an important school function and she was able to pull it together in a matter of days. She had a wedding to go to that night and still made sure she was there to set everything up and make sure we were go to go. We also needed servers and a bartender and needed to be able to pay everything by company card (which almost no bartending company takes) and she made it all happen. Her food was great! The servers were great! We will definitely use them again!

We hired Chef Ellen to cater our wedding and were so pleased with how everything turned out! She has such a broad range of menu items to choose from and was so helpful in helping us select a cohesive, elegant menu for the occasion. The presentation was beautiful and Ellen also provided several servers and a bartender, all of whom were incredibly professional and really helped the event run smoothly. We were so happy with how everything turned out and would highly recommend!

Ellen, was a lot of fun to work with. We planned a cocktail party for 40-50 for my 45th Bday at the very last minute. She made over 500 pcs of appetizers, created a custom dish (which was delicous) at my request, and helped me plan the cocktails to be served. The upshot is the party was a success, the food was a hit and Ellen and her bartender/server Josh added to the party as I have an open kitchen. I would definitely work with her again and recommend her to friends.

I had the pleasure of hiring Kennia Ramirez as a bartender for a swanky, upscale birthday party. By the end of the night, to my surprise, the guest list for the party doubled. Kennia was able to gracefully handle the additional guests and continue to make delicious, yummy cocktails throughout the night. She was so clever by creating the perfect signature cocktails that complimented the theme of my party. Her level of professionalism is exceptional. Not only is she talented and gifted, she’s very warm and personable. My guests loved her and called her a “sweetheart.” I am so happy I hired her for that evening. I will surely be hiring her for all of my future parties and events. I’ve also recommended her to my friends, co-workers and family. What a joy to work with her! Can’t wait for the next party. 🎉🎉

Matt was an extradorinary bartender. From his initial contact with me, I could tell that he was totally on board with bringing my vision of a martini bar to life. From a quick turn around with an invoice to always responding immediately to my questions, he was very helpful! On the day of the event he showed up early and he was very nice and professional to my guests. We enjoyed his service so much that we added on an extra hour of service. Anytime we have a party we will be calling him. I was extremely satisfied with my experience!

I hired Santisi Bartending to bartend my engagement party. The party was at a catering call, but I wanted a bartender with more experience then the bartenders they had on staff. Matt did not disappoint. He helped suggest drinks, provided martini glasses, and kept the guest happy all night. Will definitely hire again.

Kinga was an amazing bartender, from our very first conversation to the last hour she spent at our party! This was the first time we had hired a bartender for an event at our home, and Kinga set a very high bar. From our first communication, she was responsive to all my questions, was very reasonably priced, and helped put together a very tasty cocktail menu for our guests. There is no doubt that Kinga has the personality and skill set for bartending any event. Without a doubt, I will request her services again when I have another party.

David was the bartender for my son's end of cancer treatment party. He arrived early and was very professional. He was able to organize the bar area quickly. He was able to keep the drinks flowing for our very large party (165 guests). I would highly recommend him for your bartending needs! He also brought a server Margarita. She was also very professional and helpful for our busy event. Our party would not have been the success it was without both of their help.

Elite Party Staffing saved us in pinch. Our regular bartender had a conflict and could not work for us.

Wow. Just wow. I can’t say enough good thing about DeCicco & Sons Events and Cuisine. They arrived on time (early even) in their DeCicco & Sons Vans. The Food was Amazing and the set up was elegant. There was so much beautifully set up food and appetizers. I ordered drop-off service for my daughter’s sweet sixteen party this yesterday. And we also had two full service bar tenders with the works. They were so attentive to our needs...from Bittany who was my contact person and our event planner, (who addressed all my questions and concerns...and worked with my budget) to the bartenders who did an amazing job and kept the party going all night long. They went above and beyond to make our dream event a reality. Good job guys! At the end of the night I had to hug both Bartenders, because I was so happy with everything. Must hire...them for your event. You won’t be disappointed.

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!

I hired Famous Bartending and Catering for my brother's 40th bday party that I hosted at my house. Jessie,was responsive to any questions I had, and answered my emails within 24 hours. Jessie selected Mimi to bartend my event and Mimi was BEYOND amazing. Mimi was very personable, professional and the drinks she made for my guest were top notch. My guest raved about Mimi!

I work with Prudential across the street from Famous and we hired Jessie and his team for a corporate event about 6 months ago. I have gone to Famous for lunch with coworkers a few times in the past and I always receive amazing service. We needed servers, bartenders, appetizers, and mixed drinks. Even with the short notice Jessie definitely delivered and was very professional. Our event went smoothly and I couldn't be happier. We will hire Jessie again for any future events!

Peter and his staff helped us throw a lovely client event in our office. We hosted 100 guests with wonderful food and beverages. Peter was instrumental in collaborating with us on our menu choices, look for the evening with floral arrangements and also helped to support special requests such as getting extra servers, bartenders and a coat check. He also really worked with me to find a perfect balance to host a high end party while staying within our budget. His staff was amazing on the day of, really giving our clients a warm welcome and making sure everyone was taken care of during our event.

Sara Elise and her team are quick to reply, professional, accommodating, and - most importantly - culinarily savvy! Bed Stuy Kitchen provided delicious and inventive appetizers for my off-site event, and did so without a kitchen, almost no light, and very little space. The team was totally flexible and had an awesome positive attitude that made my event feel warm and friendly - exactly the vibe I was hoping for. It was really easy to communicate with Sara in the preparatory period (which was about a week in total, but just a couple of days for hammering out details) and I so appreciated the professionalism with which she treated my event, and the space (which was borrowed and therefore extra-sensitive). Sara arrived on time and scouted the space with me to set up for her needs before her team arrived. I thought that was a really smart move and I appreciated her consideration of my desire to be "low impact" in a borrowed space. The team took ownership of their space so that I didn't need to micromanage, but worked within the confines of what the space allowed - a perfect balance! The food: everyone went BONKERS for the Bourbon caramel sea salt popcorn - it was ridiculously delicious and nicely balanced. The cheese and charcuterie boards were simple and delicious - and completely wiped out by the end of the night - and the passed apps flew off trays. Sara calculated the amount of food needed really well, and I appreciate having a well-fed event without lots of waste. I also requested bar service (I provided the alcohol) and her bartender was not only competent, but also warmly professional which matched the tone of my event perfectly. Basically, hire Bed Stuy Kitchen if you want an accommodating, professional, and creative caterer. They will make your event easier on you and tastier for your guests. A big thank you to Sara, Ora, and team!

Sara Elise and her team catered my housewarming party for ~40 people at my apartment on the UWS. She developed an amazing menu based on my preferences and the execution was flawless. Her team (despite battling some difficult weather/traffic and running a few minutes late) still managed to create a beautiful spread before the guests hit the door, and the food was fantastic. Her bartender was also a welcome presence at the party serving up cocktails and wine. I couldn't recommend her team more highly.

Sara was the first caterer I ever hired for a double birthday party at home. My wife was petrified the day before because we had never met her or sampled her food. Her fears were completely unfounded and the food was delicious and the staff super professional. The bartender Sara provided unfortunately served our guests faster than the food could soak up, resulting in much fun but many hangovers. Very likely to offer more business.

RSVP is our go-to company to bartend at our store headquarters, a high end clothing company, typically held for our company's president, designers, and other VIP guests. Their bartenders are super friendly and attractive. They bring all of the drinks, very nice champagne and glasses. The staff was all very professional and served cosmos, martinis, and champagne for everyone quickly. We will continue to use them in the future.
