Ellen was lovely to work with and very attentive and communicative which is essential when planning a party. My party was a small holiday one but the hors d'oeuvres she made were fabulous and the leftovers made wonderful work lunches :). Thanks Ellen!

We've been hosting our holiday party for 11 years and Kimberly made this year one of the best. She showed up early, stayed late, engaged all of our guests (at least 50 people) and was just fantastic behind the bar! Matt was also super responsive to us via email and text. This is the first time we used Santisi and it certainly won't be the last. We are definitely recommending Matt and Kimberly to all or our friends and neighbors!

We hired Charlie for our office holiday party and he was a pleasure to work with! He was very quick and communicative with his correspondences and he was very flexible with the menu. Our budget was tight but he made suggestions to still keep the quality matched with quantity. Everybody loved the food!!! Thank you very much Charlie!

Chris and his team were the perfect choice for our event. From our first conversation through execution, the process was seamless and efficient. Chris was always quick to respond and tailored a menu of hors d'oeuvres and drinks that were perfect for the occasion and within our budget. I would absolutely recommend him to others and plan to use NY Catering Service again for our holiday party.

Chef Lauren and her crew were such a pleasure to work with! I specifically chose Bacco Catered Events because of the prompt response level and highly personalized attention to detail from the very beginning. Our holiday cocktail party is the highlight of our year. However, Chef Lauren and her staff made it even more festive and decadent than we could have ever dreamed of! Not only was each member of the Bacco staff incredibly professional, but they each made our guests feel completely taken care of for the entire night. The food was not only delicious, but the presentation of both the pass around hors d'oeuvres and the stationary food was so beautiful. Additionally, the bartender created yet an additional focal point in the bar that many guests commented on how beautiful it was! I feel SO lucky to have found Chef Lauren! We have already set our date for December of 2017!

Tamara Shenkle was fantastic to work with. From start to finish, Tamara professionally brought me through the process of planning our marriage celebration NYC cocktail party. From the delicious menu (the guests raved perfectly bite sized hors d'ourves), cocktails & bar (she handled everything) to the handling of a lovely prosecco toast for fifty of our closest friends. Amoraco's food was fresh, exquisite, the glass and serving ware completely taken care of and the staff gracious, skilled and friendly. Thank you Tamara for catering our party. We and, again, the guests gave you and your team heartfelt compliments. P.S. Thank you for leaving the place so clean - our host appreciated it! I highly recommend Tamara and Amoraco for anyone reading this post.

For two years in a row, Chef Dan has catered our holiday party and both events have been a huge success with no small thanks to Dan's cooking and his partner in crime, Brianna's bartending. Amazing food, excellent service, outstanding value.

DeCicco's recently catered an office Holiday Breakfast for us. Both Luisa DeCicco and Event Planner, Francesca Sgammato were amazing to work with. They made sure we had all we wanted (and more), worked through numerous menu changes and kept us within our budget. The food was abundant and delicious and delivered hot and on time. We will definitely use DeCicco's again.

Joe catered a party for 65 people. He delivered the food to downtown Manhattan. He was friendly and efficient in explaining to me how to cater the food. He personally delivered the food - on time - and the food received many great reviews. The party was a success and Thumbtack was a life saver when I couldn't find a caterer. Thank you for helping to make our annual holiday party a success.

My husband and I hosted an intimate birthday dinner party for our daughter, her boyfriend and guest visiting from Belgium and a couple of close friends. Each of them enjoyed the salmon and lamb chops, the presentation of the appetizers and salad was great. We had a great experience with Chef Aless. We would definitely consider her again for future events. Leila and Gerhard Mueller

Chef Martin, his delicious food, warm disposition, meticulous attention to detail and easygoing charm were probably the best part of our wedding day. Right from the start we knew he would make our day perfect in every way. He immediately understood our needs, helped us find the best solutions and always had a positive attitude and a jovial ease. The food was perfect and his staff was lovely and professional. We'd love to work with him again some time soon and are pleased to recommend him for any of your event/party catering needs.

This is the first time that I've personally worked with a caterer for a small event (15 people) and it couldn't have gone better. Chef Stenneth was very detailed when presenting me with catering options. He worked within my budget and was open to any suggestions and alterations I had. He was communicative and responsive to all my inquiries and delivered everything punctually. A true professional! The food itself was AMAZING! The guests at my event all specifically pointed out how much they enjoyed the food! Chef Stenneth's culinary skills easily rival top restaurants in the city and I feel like I've found a hidden gem with him. I would easily recommend him to anyone looking for a caterer for any party size!

As someone who is obsessed with food, I know good from mediocre, and mediocre from just plain bad. I am also someone has ZERO capacity to cook for more than, like, 1-2 people at a time…tops 4….but I happen to have a big extended family and group of friends that LOVES to entertain and BE entertained. So, on one hand it’s great because it gives me LOTS of excuses to eat wonderful food to my heart’s content (yay cheat days!); on the other hand, I have panic attacks just THINKING about preparing for one of these parties in terms of planning menus, figuring out what and how much stuff to make, shopping, prepping, cooking, cleaning, etc My heart is actually starting to race right now just WRITING about it!!! However, about 7 years ago, I found my secret weapon. I was at an event my old job was hosting, and the food was AMAZING and so creative and delicious. The theme was gourmet comfort food, and I’ll never forget it because I LOVE comfort food, and the dishes they served at the event were such cool, delicious, creative versions of some of my favorites. I was in the restroom at some point fixing my make-up, and a Chef Alana happened to be at the sink as well. We just started chatting and I liked her instantly. She has such a great energy that you will notice right away when you meet her (and you SHOULD meet her!) As it happened, I was in the beginning stages of planning a holiday party with my sister, and we were tying to decide what to do about food. When I mentioned this to Chef Alana, she immediately threw like 3 great potential ideas at me!!! We exchanged info and I contacted her the next day. We talked about the details of the party, the types of guests they would be there, particular tastes, requirements, special dietary needs of some of the guests, etc. and she said she'd whip up a proposal and get back to me. Two days later she sent me an EPIC menu, layout of how she and her staff would work, breakdown of her price and some great tips as well! I hired her the second I was finished reading....and the rest is history. Chef Alana and her staff have done every single event I have ever needed catered,since then, as well as many for people I have referred her to. On a totally opposite note from being an obsessed foodie and big entertainer/entertainee, I happen to also be a former figure competitor (a category in the bodybuilding world). Now, while I don’t seek out the healthiest dishes when planning a party or family gathering, Chef Alana’s food almost always can be considered “healthy” in that she only uses the freshest ingredients and every single element of every dish is homemade. She skimps on NOTHING in terms of quality, freshness and authenticity. But I digress. The real point I was about to make is that for the two years I was competing, I hired Chef Alana to do all of my meal prepping and delivery. We thoroughly discussed my needs and preferences — which were VERY picky and obnoxious — and she NAILED it every single week. The amount of time and frustration she saved me during that already-stressful time was PRICELESS. I refer all of my friends and family to Chef Alana and her Most Wanted Chef staff any chance I get. She is that good. I actually hate making recommendations to people on services and products, etc. in case things don’t go well and then I’d feel responsible. In all honesty, though, I NEVER hesitate to recommend Chef Alana/Most Wanted Chef, and I will continue to tout her services and UTILIZE her services every chance I get. Do yourself a favor if you have ANY need for a caterer or a private chef - reach out to Chef Alana, be prepared to be blown away, and see why she really is the Most Wanted Chef.

My name is Marisa and I hired Harvest Specialty to cater my birthday party. I dealt directly with Jason and when I told him what I had in mind he knew just what to do and came up with the best menu to accommodate everyone. The price was extremely reasonable and Jason was always available if I had questions or concerns. The day of the event Jason arrived on time and set everything up beautifully and quickly. The food was so delicious everyone at the party was asking about the caterer. I would definitely use Harvest Specialty again and I would definitely recommend them to all my friends.

Brenda met with me and helped plan a special menu for my husband's 50th birthday party. The food was great and well presented. The roast beef was a crowd pleaser. The cheese and fruit platter were an elegant touch. The custom lemonade was superb. I'm pleased and highly recommend Brenda and her team.

I've used Thyme events for several personal and business functions. Most recently, they catered our firm's holiday party in our office in 2012 and 2013 and at Thyme in 2014. The food presentation and service could not have been nicer. And delicious, too. Nancy is one of the easiest people to deal with. Can't go wrong with Thyme for any event.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
