There's only praise for a job well done by Ellen and her staff. The day I met Ellen she not only helped with planning out the perfect menu but it turns out she's got quite an eye for fashion and helped me pick out a beautiful dress and suit for my fiance. I saw she had talents in many other areas than running a booming catering business. She looked after and anticipated every detail that could have caused a problem and addressed it before hand. The main comment I heard through the day was "where did you find the caterer, her food is amazing." That was often from some very discerning guests that truly knew food. The Salmon was absolutely delicious and we had chosen a mushroom lasagna that was out of this world and the same can be said for the salads. I loved the little individual fruit cups also. Ellen runs her kitchen like a pro, shows up early and all you have to do is let her do her thing. Truly outstanding!!!

Chris assisted me with my wedding catering - on top of being such an extremely talented chef, he is so knowledgable about food & catering logistics. I have also eaten at many of the restaurants he has cooked at - amazing! So lucky to know a chef like him.

Bacco Catering was a great choice for our event. We used them for a charity event at our store and they performed incredibly. Our guest were so pleased as many of them asked me " who are the caterers, this food and service is amazing". Thank you Lauren so much for such a great night.

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.

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.

We are so happy to have chosen Manjar to cater our New Year's Day party. Experience with a variety of caterers over the years has shown how hard it can be to find someone who is responsive during the planning process and provides excellent food and service. Everything we had on our menu was delicious! Hosting a group of well-traveled, adventurous eaters, having highly flavorful dishes, aesthetically presented, is always a goal. Thanks to Adolpho and his staff that was exactly what we got. We would order everything again but I must say that everyone agreed that the baby lamb chops were the best they ever had (and this group has had a lot!), and the tuna ceviche was exceptional. But I don't want to slight the other dishes (especially the superb mushroom risotto and vegetable "towers" which were beautiful...I could go on and on). I was impressed from the beginning with our first exchanges through Thumbtack. Adolpho mentioned doing a walk-through months before to see our physical set-up. Besides the hour I'm sure it took him to get here, we spent another hour talking and making final plans. I never felt rushed; he is a great listener. He asked questions that I wouldn't have considered and the party was all the better for that. We felt totally pampered and relaxed throughout the evening. The kitchen was left immaculate. Adolpho captures what is, to me, the best combination of professionalism and warmth. He is simply delightful to work with, as are his staff. We are so grateful to have found him and look forward to our next party with Manjar. Deborah Corbett Montclair, New Jersey

Best experience ever. We needed a bartender for a private birthday party I was organizing for my boss and took a chance on hiring HighLife. Not only did we get a bartender but we got Tyler himself - the owner of HighLife. He was amazing. Our chef we hired from a different company was a disaster and Tyler took it upon himself to help serve the meals, set the tables with wine glasses, pour water/wine throughout dinner, not to mention making the best margaritas on the planet. Extremely reasonable prices with top notch service that is so hard to find these days. Next party I organize I will simply call Tyler. Whether I need a bartender, chef, catering, etc - HighLife will be my only phone call. Thanks for everything!

Chef Stenneth Grant and his business partner Shanique Walker lent their exquisite culinary and catering talents to our wedding to glittering effect. We could not have been happier with their service and the sumptuous spread they prepared for us and our guests at the dinner reception. The menu was a thoughtfully curated mix of African-American, Caribbean, and Asian inspired cuisine, with options for both non-vegetarians and vegetarians. Not only was the food flavorful and delicious, it was also beautifully garnished and presented. Our guests raved about every single dish and were practically falling over themselves to grab seconds. Not surprisingly, several of them have asked for Stenneth and Shanique's contact information and plan to hire them for their own upcoming events. It's true what they say: word-of-mouth is the best recommendation; and these satisfied guests were singing Stenneth and Shanique's praises. To top it all off, the two exude utter professionalism as well as genuine warmth and passion about what they do. Although we contacted them somewhat late in the planning process to cater our wedding, they easily accommodated us, even putting together a free tasting on relatively short notice. They were punctual in delivering the food and their set up was speedy and seamless. All in all, it was an unqualified pleasure working with Stenneth and Shainique. We're still savoring the memories of their excellent cuisine and service. I hope we'll have occasion to hire them again. It hasn't been a week since our wedding and one of our guests already has hired them to cater an event--and on short notice to boot. How's that for validation! You can't go wrong with this excellent team! Thanks, Stenneth and Shanique! You're the best!

Working with Chef Dave was great from beginning to end. He helped me throw a 50th birthday lunch. I have done many events and am all about the details and he was just the same. He came to my apartment prior to the event to see my kitchen, the set up, and discussed the rentals we would need. Together, we agreed on a menu, staff, set up, and all other details for the event. He was very easy to communicate with prior to the event, and was just as excited as I was about the party! He was on time and cost conscious. His food was delicious. Throughout the party, my guests kept going in the kitchen to get to know him and thank him. He also prepared a killer sangria for me in advance of the party which was perfectly marinated by the time we had to serve it to my guests. It was a huge hit! Our menu included everything from lamb chops to caesar salad wraps to cheesecake to of course his famous mozarella sushi. He also helped me obtain a hostess and bartender who were both so professional and gracious and all smiles all day! This was definitely a party to be remembered. Between the amazing food of Chef Dave, great service, a surprise rapper, belly dancer, singer, and a DJ on the 49th floor with amazing views of Manhattan, who wouldn't have a great time!? I definitely look forward to working with Chef Dave again. Melissa

We recently had a 40th birthday celebration at Liederkrantz Club catered by OpenSkies Catering. I can't say enough good things about Albert and Phillip and their entire staff. They went Above And Beyond to make our event special. Every detail was perfect!!! The food was phenomenal and very creative. You can't beat their prices either. They are very creative, original, and flexible with their party planning ideas. People are STILL talking about how it was the best party they have ever been too. I would do another party with them in a heartbeat. Just need a reason to have another elaborate affair. :)

My firm hired David and Paglia Hospitality Inc. to provide breakfast and lunch and a platter of goodies to leave with us for a company event for our employees. One of the partners was enamored with the idea of having a food truck as the caterer for our event. So begins this culinary experience. I asked for typical breakfast fare and he delivered: Homemade corned beef hash, ricotta pancakes, Brioche French toast, and breakfast sandwiches plus more. His food was delicious and was a wonderful way to start our day! In regards to lunch, he even delivered more: Parmesan chicken wings, Tuscan BBQ wings, fried bacon rice balls, lobster rolls, fish tacos, roasted brussel sprouts with Calabrian chili, 5 different sandwiches and 3 burgers. We also had cookies and brownies. He was on time. He was professional. Most importantly: He worked fast to feed 30 people, with every order made upon request! I highly recommend Paglia Hospitality: you will not be disappointed.

I have had the great pleasure of being a customer and guest on several occasions of Cornbread26's catering services. Each time I was blown away by their outstanding customer service, food quality and flavor, and beautiful execution of the event's decor. Claude and Craig work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that their clients don't have to worry about a thing except for enjoying the experience and the food.

BOOK'EM NOW!...... LIKE RIGHT NOW!!! Hands down thee best catering company I have ever experienced! I used RSVP as the owner catered a friend's engagement party in February. I have worked in the restaurant industry for several years and could not believe the attention to detail that their wait staff displayed. They were on point with everything and my glass never went empty. The whole staff was very nice and very professional. Especially the bartender . I chatted it up with him for a bit, made really good drinks and was a real friendly guy. Now, the food was outstanding! I really enjoyed the gorgonzola stuffed babybella mushrooms amongst all the other delicious dishes. I had a chance to meet the owner Renee after the dinner while everyone was dancing. Not over exaggerating at all, they were probably the kindest people I every met. SUPER COOL, totally humble, and they even gave me food to take home. I would recommend RSVP to anybody and everybody that wants their party to be a success!

Elemental Catering catered a one year birthday party for my twins. They were very professional, worked with me on creating a perfect menu. The food was delicious, and at the end they cleaned after themselves. I would definitely hire Elemental Catering for my next event.
