Ella was phenomenal. She really helped us knock our catered business lunch for 50+ people out of the park. She was easy to work with and went the extra mile with presentation.

We recently returned from a family and friends vacation in Costa Rica. We rented a beautiful 5 bedroom home (for 1 week), just off the 17th tee at the Four Seasons resort in Papagayo. We flew in the Bad Boy Chef, Chris Nirshel from New York City, to dazzle us with exotic dishes and flavors. Dazzled we were. It was obvious that Chris knew his way around the kitchen, and just watching Chris do his thing was like watching a gourmet ballet. From breakfast, to delectable snacks, lunch and dinner, Chris was the star of our Costa Rican vacation. Chris did all the shopping for the local foods, spices, fruits and vegetables and was just plane fun to hang out with. Living up to his bad boy reputation, Chis went Four Wheeling on some dangerous mountain, flipped his Four Wheeler, and came back looking like he had gone 14 rounds with Iron Mike Tyson... broken toe, ribs and covered in dirt and lacerations... but the delights from the kitchen never stopped! We are going to rename Chris The Terminator Chef. So folks, my money is on this bad boy chef as Chris made our vacation one we will not forget, ever, unless we get Alzheimer's. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

I love Bacco! I called Lauren shortly before my son's communion to inquire about catering lunch for 40. Lauren's suggested menu was perfect and didn't even compare in quality to the other samples I received. The day of the event the food was delivered and set up while we were at church. My guests and I were blown away when we got home to see the food displayed beautifully and it tasted just as great. Perfect luncheon. I can't wait to use Lauren and Bacco again. Everything was just as promised and more!

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 had a party in our home for 30 colleagues. Chef Dan arrived exactly on time and brought everything he needed with him. He prepared an array of visually appealing and delectable tasting culinary creations that wowed our guests taste buds and satiated their appetites. The bartender was great and the servers did an impeccable job of constantly bringing Dan's gourmet offerings while being pleasant and unobtrusive. Many caterers provide quantity and some high quality- chef Dan did both at a reasonable price and with a smile on his face. He cooked everything fresh in our kitchen and when he and his staff finished, our kitchen looked as pristine as when he arrived. The party was great fun and a big success. Every one of our guests commented on how fabulous the food was and how outstanding the service. He is our go to guy for any future parties or affairs. kudos and thanks. Mel & Pamela Pratter

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.

I hired Greg for a private dinner for my wife and I for her birthday. I would give a 4.5. It was an awesome experience and the food was great. Organization needs improvement. Def makes up for it w/passion for food and drive to serve his clients. Overall, had a blast and my wife was blown away. That, for me, is all what it was about. Thanks Greg!

Peter and his team were absolutely amazing. Not only was he great at communicating with me prior to the event, but he also offered many delicious options for the menu to ensure there would be something for everyone at my party. The team was on time and very respectful of the staff and the space, putting together a lovely set-up with flowers (!) that made the event feel that much more special. The food and drinks were delicious. My personal favorite were the pulled pork sliders and mojitos, but everyone raved about how delicious all of our appetizers were. Peter even sent a special plate over to me (the host) to ensure I'd have a chance both to eat and sample his delicious menu. I cannot say enough about the friendliness of him and his staff throughout the night. They were just so thoughtful and professional. I would (and will!) absolutely hire Peter and Creative Table Catering again in the future. My friends were also very impressed by him and the value of the services he offered at my event. In a city with innumerable options for caterers, I would highly recommend Peter for any event you have. He made my special night a celebration to remember.

Aromas catered a family dinner at our apartment in honor of my son's 6th birthday. They prepared a delicious sit down meal for the grown ups and perfect buffet for the children (ages 3-10). They also backed the most extraordinary "Dusty" (from the Disney Planes movie) birthday cake. I highly recommend them.

I picked Cornbread26 2 days prior for a last minute Mother’s Day Dinner and I’m So happy I did! I could not have asked for anything more. Claude and Craig did an extraordinary job. I was a little skeptical picking a caterer just from searching online and I had a combination of concerns. My family members are diabetic and have high blood pressure so cooking with certain ingredients was huge for me while keeping the flavor for others. I also had children coming to join and wasn’t sure if the food would be kid friendly but the food exceeded my expectations along with my family. Everything was delicious and tasty. Their food was the highlight of the night. I would definitely recommend this company and look forward to working with them for my future events.

Larry catered for a 400 person event for us at very short notice. He came and gave us a tasting to agree menu in advance, coped brilliantly when we upped our numbers, and on the day was highly organised, delivering fresh Colson pastries for our breakfast and a great lunch. Everyone commented on our food saying it was some of the best conference food they had tasted. We would definitely use Larry's team again and wish them great success.

It was an amazing experience having Milt, Janet and their crew as our caterers. They arrived early to set up and be prepared for our guest. The food was AMAZING!!!! I cannot get over their stuffed mushrooms, those delicious little chicken quesadilla, OMG the shrimp cocktail...I can sit here and name every single dish we ordered and tell the world what an amazing experience it was for my taste buds and my guest will say the same. I will continue to work with Studio Event Staffing for all my future events. Not only were they professional, they were very friendly and warm--they have an awesome team put together!!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
