The second I opened up Every Detail Catering's menu, I was in heaven. Communicating with Chuck Cohen by email was fast and helpful, but he was extremely helpful when we talked on the phone. He helped me plan out the menu for our event by making suggestions that improved on my original ideas. He was responsive to my need for gluten-free and vegetarian options. He and Maria showed up at my house on time. The food was hot. He gave me precise and clear directions for serving the food at the appropriate time. Everything worked like clockwork. Best of all, everything that Every Detail Catering made was delicious. Our guests were knocked out by the food! I can't wait to have an occasion to go back to Chuck for catering in the future. Worth every penny!
We discovered Bacco nearly 4 years ago and have called on Chef Lauren and her exceptional team for all of our catered events ever since. Imagine the best service you have ever had at your favorite restaurant - this is what Bacco consistently delivers, custom fit for your event. Once you've decided on the details (truly, this is the toughest part with so many mouth watering options to choose from), you don't have to worry about anything. They show up when they say, are diligently prepared and deliver beyond what was promised. I am not easy to please and my guests have all sorts of dietary restrictions (gluten, dairy, shellfish, you name it) but with Bacco I rest easy and can truly enjoy my event. They have everything covered and are wonderfully autonomous. My guests rave about the delicious food every time, I have peace of mind throughout and at the end of the night, Bacco leaves my kitchen even cleaner than they found it. You cannot ask for a better experience with a more professional, efficient and pleasant crew. We use them for all our events and will gladly continue to do so.
Tamara did a wonderful job on our in-home cocktail party for around 20 guests. The first telephone call gave me a fantastic impression of what it would be like to work with Tamara and she delivered on all fronts, in the run up to the event and during it. Highlights: 1. Open minded and collaborative on our menu. Tamara built a themed menu targeted to the reason for our event. 2. Warm and cheerful, positive and flexible at all times. 3. Delicious, delicious food including a special vegan/gluten free option for one guest. 4. Came through last-minute when we realized we needed a table (on the day). 5. Competitive pricing.
Every year, our family gets together from SF, NYC and Austin TX. Recently, we elected to source a chef to help facilitate our big saturday night evening. One this night, there are 20 people under the roof and two dogs. Chef Dan and his fiance were superb. As anyone w a large family can attest, there are usually last-second snags. Chef Dan accomodated these schedule adjustments in stride. He arrived on time (early actually). He quickly surveyed the scene and was super accomodating of the toddlers running around complicating his efforts. He took it in stride and even played with the little ones. The food was outstanding. We have many unique diets in the family and Chef Dan accomodated all of them. When the gluten-free macnchhese hit the table, my niece shrieked in joy. I didnt ask Chef Dan for gluten free macncheese, he took the initiative based on our discussions prior to the event. On that note, Chef Dan was very easy to get a hold of prior to the event. Back to the food which was on point: the food was great! My family has picky eaters and there were no bad reviews. Id be happy to highlight the dishes we selected if requested. The scallops were seared to perfection and the lamb chops were spot on. Lastly, we didnt have to lift a finger. The service was on point.
Adolfo and his team catered my mother's 60th Surprise Birthday Party for 15ppl in her apartment. It was an absolute success!!! the food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. the flavor profiles as each course came out complimented the ones before. it was a cohesive menu that we both worked on preparing. the favorites of the night were the mini grilled cheese with the tomato soup shot and the duck wraps. The mini lobster rolls were tasty and we took the leftover lobster and ate them as lettuce wraps. But everything was delish!! I spoke to many caterers and his level of professionalism and follow up was what truly drew me to his as I knew he could be trusted and cared for this event to be a success as much my sisters and i did. Everyone was so pleased and in awe of the service. As soon as an item was sent out - the napkins were whisked away. My sisters and I were able to enjoy my mother's party due to the prompt attention and efficiency of Adolfo's staff. I would love to hire Adolfo again for all my parties. It's well worth it and I'm so fortunate that I was able to find his services. Thank you for his team for making it so special. My mom was blown away- much success to you!! Thumbtack community - please hire them! You will not be disappointed.
My experience with LCI Caterers was out of this world amazing. Joe was on time his staff was diligent and professional the food was on point. All of the guests could not stop raving about how amazing the food was. If I could I would give LCI Caterers 10 Stars. I just can't think Joe enough for his amazing job and the staff we will always be thankful to you Joe
Erika cooked for our 11-person bachelorette party dinner and it was a complete delight! She really listened to all of our ideas when pulling together the menu, was quick to respond, and was a really nice presence at the dinner. We had gluten free and vegetarian restrictions, but you'd never know it! The food was amazing - and I'll be thinking of her almond cake until we work with her again! Thanks, Erika!
Working with Chef Martin was wonderful! Finding him was our first foray into Thumbtack - and it turned out marvelously! Having read the MANY 5-star reviews for Chef Martin/Mirabell Catering we were dubious... could he be THAT good? The answer is a resounding yes! We needed a caterer for an entirely gluten-free 4-hour open house for roughly 70 people - kids and adults. Chef Martin was swift in his response to our request for a caterer. He articulated a clear understanding of the menu needs, and how to avoid cross contamination - a BIG deal when you have celiac disease and have to live gluten free. He developed a menu offering a wide array of finger foods at a very reasonable price. By phone, we found him to be a gentleman - a rarity these days. He was professional and organized, calm and cool, affable and charming. (I had a feeling that our friends would want to hang out in the kitchen with Chef Martin and I was right!) Chef Martin arrived promptly and brought everything he needed. As he settled in - even putting us at ease as we hurried to finish readying for our guests - his waitstaff person arrived. From there, Chef Martin turned out hours of incredibly tasty, plentiful, finger food for a large and hungry crowd. Truly, everyone raved about the food throughout the party and after. And Chef Martin WAS as charming in person as he had been by phone. The kitchen was packed! Now here is the totally unexpected thing that happened with Chef Martin: whenever I walked through the kitchen in need of something, before I could say much of anything at all, it would be taken care of or I'd find what I had come in search of in my hand. Chef Martin knows events! His presence just made everything easier. I hope we will have the pleasure of working with him again. My husband and I are proud to say that we have held some great parties, but we enjoyed this party in our home more than any other. It was delightful to spend time with our guests - and to eat! It was a joy to not worry about the cooking or having to hustle about cleaning up throughout or face a terrible mess after. Chef Martin and his gracious and professional staff made our holiday open house easy for us, and a marvelously memorable event for our guests. If you need a personal chef/ caterer, Chef Martin is the man you want.
We had a wonderful time at our group cooking class at La Pulperia. Chef Carlos and his team were so gracious (accommodating of food allergies) and the food was delicious - empanadas, salmon tartar, guacamole and ricotta gnocchi (which we learned how to make). We enjoyed making one of their signature cocktails and sipped wine (and tequila). Thanks to Chef Carlos and everyone at La Pulperia for such a fun and unique time. Also, thanks so much to Tyler for setting everything up!
Completely hassle free, gourmet service. Peter treats clients and their events with such love. Could not be happier with the value and amazing food that was served at our event. Just perfect.
via Melissa, or "Chef Melissa" as we call her, exceeded our expectations! We took her from her usual route of healthy food and asked her to run a cooking class so that children with Celiac Disease could make and enjoy cupcakes on the morning of Super Bowl Sunday. She was really flexible and provided what felt and looked like "regular" cupcakes but modified for strict gluten-free compliance and somehow they were a little healthy too! All natural. even organic and dairy-free where possible. The ages of children who attended ranged from 4-12 and she worked really well with everyone! She set up before we (event organizers) arrived and had a friendly helper with her. They were professional but the kids related to them very well. The parents were all pleased and her rate was really reasonable! Our support group doesn't make any money from events like this, parents paid her directly and she was accepting last-minute additions without any worries. I can't think of a single negative - in fact we'd like to work with her again this year! Oh, and she even took the work of finding a location away from us (we're 2 volunteers who run this group for our children and others). Next class, we'll go a little healthier and really take advantage of ALL that via Melissa has to offer our kids! :) Oh, and she's even sending us kid-friendly, healthy and gluten-free recipes for us to share with the families in our group! She really goes above and beyond!
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.
I can't even begin to express how much Platter Matters Catering was the logistical backbone of our corporate event. They are definitely NOT just another vendor but a partner and consultant to plan and execute your perfect event. They were willing to make special substitutions to fit our preferences and even shared some fun creative ideas for us. The food was simply delicious; it tasted as if made with love and pride. Our guests appreciated the attention to any serious food allergies. All staff was amazing, and Ivett (owner) was a fantastic resource and helped immensely with the planning process, logistics, and answered my questions at all hours of the day. I highly recommend them for any event! Deborah
FIG catered an intimate gathering of friends and provided an unparalleled experience. All staff were friendly and accommodating, as well as extremely talented. The food was delicious. I would definitely use them again.
We're so thrilled to have found Larry and Elemental Catering on Thumbtack. We hired them for our wedding day and had a very specific budget. Larry and his team were SO flexible and worked with us to refine the menu and service staff to meet our needs and vision. The food is incredible! We so appreciate Elemental Catering's professionalism and customer service - impeccable and wonderful as the food! Thanks for helping make our special day stress-free and delicious for our guests. XO :)
Thyme recently catered a surprise birthday party for my wife and they did not disappoint! The food was delicious, the service was very professional and everyone had a great time! I highly recommend using Thyme for any catering needs.
We used D'Lish for my wife's surprise birthday party. Deirdre was fantastic! I had never planned an event like this before and from the my first interaction with Deirdre, I knew the event was going to be great. She handled EVERYTHING -- rentals, liquor, setup, cleanup -- in addition to the excellent food our friends and family are still raving about. Not only that, but she also went far out of her way to ensure the entire meal, including dessert, was gluten free, even finding a dedicated gluten free bakery for the cake. Trust me when I tell you that you cannot make a mistake with D'Lish. For our next event, I won't even consider looking around. I'll just call Deirdre and know everything will be great, down to the smallest detail.
Craig prepared a 5 course tasting menu, accomodating a complicated mix of food sensitivities and preferences. He worked with us to make the vegetarian, the meat eater and the gluten free diner happy.
When our office of 140 people moved to White Plains, NY we were on a mission for a new catering service that would accommodate our executives and associates. Upon a Google search we found Savory Gourmet and decided to give them a try. It's been five years and I'm happy that we are still using savory for events both large and small and the quality and presentation are still perfect. If you want really delicious food that not only tastes good but that also looks good, contact Claudia at Savory! Her and the team are fantastic...plus they offer gluten free and can meet any special needs or themes you may have. Everyone is always impressed and we are not easily pleased. Thank you Savory Gourmet for delivering 5 star food! I highly recommend them!
We had an amazing meal with Johnny!!! He is unbelievably accommodating and creative. My wife if gluten free and loves lobster, while I love steak - so he did lobster 4 ways and cooked a ribeye for me. Each of the lobster dishes was amazing with flavors that were classic but also each with its own creative twist. We were always surprised and delighted. We couldn't recommend Johnny more.
