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!!!

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.

Where do I begin!?!? This was THE best in-home cooking experience I've ever had. Charly is a master at his craft and knows exactly how to cater to you, your cuisine, and palate. He also help teaches you about the ingredients and lets you cook along side for a more intimate experience. His professionalism and ambiance makes the meal that much better. I've already referred him to another friend and plan on continuing so since I LOVE the food and service he provided. It was my girlfriend and I but he left us completely in awe (and made me look good for coming up with the idea :)). Book Charly now and you won't be disappointed!

This was our second time collaborating with Bacco for a catered birthday party for 55 people. Because our first experience was so extraordinary, we were immediately at ease this time, knowing that everything would be taken care of and our guests would be happy. Chef Lauren excels in every aspect of catering. Her food is delicious with subtle flavors and creative menu choices. Our guests raved about her mushroom and gruyere bread pudding hors d'oeuvres, as well as a Moroccan-spiced salmon over lentils. There were plenty of leftovers too. Chef Lauren is excellent at helping plan the perfect party. She makes smart suggestions, ones that add quality without needlessly running up the bill. Her servers are very professional and friendly. Her supplier for party rentals (eg, glasses, tables, etc.) was also outstanding. Our kitchen was spotless when she left. Chef Lauren communicates clearly and frequently from Day 1 through the final clean up. She handles everything effortlessly and joyfully, allowing *us* to enjoy the party (and, just as importantly, the weeks leading up to the party). We cannot recommend her highly enough. We look forward to having her and her crew as part of many events for years to come.

What a treat to find Chef Lauren and Bacco catering. This was our first experience with Lauren and her delightful staff but we are already coming up with excuses to hire them again. Chef Lauren worked with us to personalize the menu for my partner’s milestone birthday celebration and provided a full service dinner for 40 guests in our apartment with compelling warmth, confidence, and the utmost professionalism. The food was mouthwatering from the first tantalizing passed hors d'oeuvres all the way to the desserts which, by the way, included triple chocolate brownies with raspberries on the side. Everything was perfectly flavored; clearly prepared with great care and the finest ingredients; and presented beautifully. We are over the moon and our guests haven’t stopped talking about the flavorful food and wonderful service. On top of that, our kitchen was left sparkling clean and there was an awesome stash of irresistible leftovers waiting for us in the fridge to help keep the memory of an already unforgettable and delicious evening alive for just a little while longer. Professional, on time, everything was as promised and beyond.

I found out about chef Chris through a catering service. I wasn't sure what to expect because I rarely entertain at home. I wanted something special for my friends because we were celebrating my promotion but I didn't want to do anything ordinary. Chris and his team were great, we asked for some specialty wine, cocktails, and food. He went above and beyond! He even brought a personal sommelier and mixologist! Incredible! Really cannot say enough good things about his food and beverage team! I highly recommend the perfect bite. Creamy cheese, bright apple and crunchy bacon? Awesome sauce! Highly recommend for any and all occasions. Don't forget to inquire about his gnocchi, he made them right in front of us! Really cool, can't wait to have him in my home again! 5 stars!

Tamara was amazing, full stop. She essentially captained a 10-person bar-tending team as well as her expert crew for a 3-hour event that included 300+ people, 2 floors of a venue, and 3 standing bars – and she did it all while delivering a tasty, fresh array of dishes that at least one dozen guests named "amazing." (Personal favorites included the juicy apricot chicken and zesty cous cous, but it was all first-class.) Tamara is a natural event wizard. She's generous with her time and talent and, frankly, amazing to behold on site. She was prompt and professional about communicating her team's needs and even came prepared with additional supplies, showing that she anticipated needs we had not even realized we'd have. (We ultimately needed to rely on all of her resources, and she passed this pressure test with flying colors.) Thumbtack's prompt asks if Tamara went "above and beyond" – we'd say a resounding yes, such that the event would not have been half the success it was without her. She stepped into an informal leadership role over a key component of the evening (the bar and bussing management) when this was far from her stated duties. She was a courteous, engaging, and sharp-eyed director of not only the dinner service, but also the entire room. Tamara has spoiled us for any other catering service, and we can only hope she'll work with us again in the future.

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.

We had a 50th Anniversary party for our friends in our yard and it was perfect. From the beginning Francesca helped us plan the menu, including taking into account all dietary restrictions, coordinate the tent and all needed party rentals. She answered every question and all the changes needed. They arrived exactly on time the day of the party to set it up the whole evening was perfect, changing some placements and keeping the party going without any break. Francesca and Ashley worked the party, once the setup was complete, and were so perfect. The food was displayed beautifully, they set up the bar as requested and even though we did not ask for service directly to the tables they came around at different times to see what guests needed, especially some older ones. An unexpected very short rainfall had them bring the coffee, tea and desserts to the guests to keep it out of the rain. The cleanup was impressive and perfect, they even washed the kitchen floor at the end! We loved it as did our guests and the food was delicious!!!! Everyone requested leftovers. I have shopped at DeCiccos for years and this will only keep me coming back. Thank you!

Do you want to know the definition of Excellence? Hire Luisa c/o De Cicco's Event Planning! I have never worked with a more professional, friendly company. Luisa has a way of catering to her client's and making them feel like they're at the top of her priority list. If you need her, drop her an E-mail and she IMMEDIATELY gets back to you. Need a personal Chef to teach you how to cook? Luisa can connect you with top of the line quality professional's that KNOW what they're doing in the kitchen. I'm currently taking lesson's from her Chef and I went from being a novice who's food was either bland, burnt and completely un-edible, to a person who can now chop, dice and make a meal so good, my family calls me asking me to cook for them again. Luisa and her staff are so friendly, so welcoming and very attentive to the needs of the client. Luisa has done a fine job in picking her staff and I’m extremely happy I hired her company because it was worth every penny.

I was planning a last minute 50th for my husband which I was planning on doing everything myself because it was so last minute. I decided to go with a BBQ even though I knew a family member would be at the grill all day and not be able to enjoy the party. During my planning, I went to a party that Joe was catering. I was so impressed with Joe that I went over and asked if he would be available for my date knowing it was a long shot. Of course he had other parties that day. However, after speaking to him for a while, he was sympathetic to my needs and asked me to give him a call that week and he will check to see if he can put together a team to work my party, but he wanted me to understand he would not be there personally. I understood and trusted his staff would do a good job. I called him that week. First let me start by saying Joe is the most friendly, stand up business man I have ever done business with. He was so helpful with planning my menu and giving me different ideas. Joe's team arrived, set up in 10 minutes and started cooking immediately. They came with some food already prepared so my guest could start while the grill was heating up. The food was delicious from the BBQ meats, the sides and the salads. Joe provided more than enough to serve people twice even three times plus I had left overs. The best part, Joe showed up to check on how everything was going which was not necessary because his staff was professional, friendly and experienced. Like I said, Joe's a great guy. When the crew left, everything was cleaned up and my left overs put to the side. I am still getting calls from my guests telling me what a great BBQ I had, complimenting the food and the staff. LCI Caterers saved me. Joe and his crew made my party a huge success. I will not only use Joe for any future BBQ parties but he will be my go to caterer for all my catering needs. Thanks again Joe.

Joe and his team were fantastic. We could not have had the wedding we did within our budget without the dedicated work of Joe and his team. We had over 200 people and Joe had a staff of 8 (which felt like 12) to prepare food for service, serve appetizers, bus tables and serve dinner. They were incredible. The food was excellent and Joe did a tremendous job in an incredibly challenging situation. We did not have a kitchen in our venue, so Joe was forced to make due by cooking ahead of time, transporting foods in temperature controlled containers and reheating onsite. The food quality did not suffer one iota, and Joe worked with us for months in advance of the wedding to design a menu which would respond to the challenges of the venue. People still mention how good the filet was 8 months later. Beyond the quality of the food, Joe is a full service caterer. For a nominal fee (far below any rental quote), Joe provided dinner plates, salad plates and cutlery for all of our guests. Joe also provided chafing dishes and serving instruments which were not available at our venue and which would have been exorbitant had we been forced to rent them from a third party vendor. Having the same person responsible for all of the food related rental items and the catering saved us time and money. Finally, Joe will work with you to make a menu for almost any budget. He understood our cost constraints and worked with us in creative and helpful ways to achieve a delicious menu we were proud to serve while respecting our initial budget. I only gave Joe 5 stars because they don't offer a 6 star review. He is excellent and the best choice available in the New York City area for wedding catering. Thank you Joe!

f despite that it was thanksiving day, and she had her own family, Chef Aless catered my family's special day with superb attention to both the food, which was beyond delicious and plentiful, and presentation. She arrived early with a trolley full of delectable hors d'oeuvres, the best turkey ever baked, and containers full of great accompanying veggies. This was the first time I have ever needed outside catering, but the experience of having Chef Aless was so seamless, and the food was so perfect, that even if I have to invent an occasion,which I will, I know she could handle it with a touch of that marvelous French charm and expertise, and very little interference from me! I'm a cook,specifically a baker. but Chef Aless is a master, and everything was delivered expeditiously and promptly. And with heart... A truly wonderful experience. Thank you so much Alessandra.

I was desperately looking for somebody to help with my daughter's 21st birthday party and only had two days to organize the entire thing. I posted a request on Thumbtack and Tyler (as well as other providers) contacted me. Based on what I read about the different options I selected Tyler's company, and I am very happy I did. He was simply outstanding. Within a few hours he came up with a menu of cocktails (named after my daughter), he took care of all the logistics (including insurance), and recruited the necessary personnel to cater the party. My daughter said that it was a memorable experience and the quality of the service was top notch. Both my daughter and I would recommend Tyler's services without any reservation.

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!

The execution was fantastic. Peter's charming assistant passed food. It made the entire evening drama free and allowed us to focus on our guests. Pulling the menu together was easy, Peter's suggestions were fantastic and he adapted to our requests without any problem. We had four different guests comment on how good the catering was ...

Chef David provided our family with a memorable Thanksgiving meal that was carefully crafted and perfectly executed. 20 guests, a mix of adults and children, enjoyed classic dishes like turkey and mashed potatoes as well as unique tastes like crab crake. Enough gushing from me... here are the 3 most important things I want future clients to know: 1) Chef David is a supreme professional - Super responsive up to the minute of delivery (and even after the meal), provided high quality product and was a general pleasure to work with. 2) Delicious down to the smallest detail - Not only were the apps, entrees and sides packed with deep flavor but the cranberry sauce and salad dressing received several compliments too. The crab cake was a standout but the entire meal was excellent. 3) Wash, Rinse, Repeat - We viewed catering Thanksgiving as a high stakes gamble. Chef David outperformed on all aspects and we plan to use his expertise again in the future.

Chef Dave was a pleasure to work with. He had a huge assortment of menu items to choose from and all of the ones we picked for our cocktail hour were delicious. He was very responsive and professional. He worked with us to make sure we got all we needed and that everything was set and ready to go on our big day. His work definitely helped to alleviate some of the stress of wedding planning. My only regret is that we didn't book him for our reception as well. We were doing a traditional Chinese wedding and the second venue already had their own catering. Otherwise, I'm sure Chef Dave would've also aced it there. Highly recommend.

Outstanding hands on demonstration and lesson for my 11 year old daughters and friends. Not only did they learn to cook the meal they enjoyed, they learned proper knife skills, cutting a chicken, importance of fresh ingredients vs. store bought, sauce prep and reduction technique, homemade salad dressing, and presentation of the meal. We all enjoyed Chef's simple educational approach as well as his lively sense of humor and calm command in the kitchen! Absolutely look forward to cooking with him again as well as using his catering expertise for at home celebrations.

Our experience with Harvest Specialty Catering and Jason was all that I could ask for. We chose this company for our daughter's barn wedding. Initially, Jason was willing to work with us for a limited portion of our event, something many caterers are NOT willing to do. After time (and a taste testing!) we opted to use him for all but dessert (we had a friend doing the cake.) We so appreciated his flexibility and willingness to work with us. He accommodated us and our changing needs at all points of our journey, even in the midst of his own challenges with equipment issues. We never knew about his difficulties until later, and not from Jason but the venue staff, as he and his crew pulled off a wonderful dinner. Our wedding guests were very complimentary of the food. On every level, we were thrilled with our choice. I would highly recommend this company for your event, whatever it may be.

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!

My friends enjoyed a wonderful vegan spread that consisted of ; crab sliders, macaroni and cheese , and a mouth watering vegetable melody !!! Their signature guava sangria was there to seal this perfect afternoon with friends. Their services was top notch, professional and satisfying and I will be using Cornbread26, this summer for my annual brunch event.

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.

I recently hired Cornbread26 to catered a cocktail party for 50 people. I was so impressed with food and overall service. They were able to meet all my needs helping make my event a true success. Thank you Cornbread26! Alan Kempske

We would need food to be provided and served at the Glendora Fire Hall. Party is from 5-9 pm. My kids and I are throwing this 70th (surprise, we hope) Birthday Party for my husband. (Please only email, if you can. The phone is my cell, so use if necessary.) We all (7) of us live in Virginia (except 1 in San Francisco), but most of our extended family live in South Jersey. My kids already got the hall. They are talking about buying and cooking food there in NJ, but I am ready to pay for catering. We would need meat, fish, veggies on the menu. Someone else is providing the cake. We would need a small gluten-free, soy- free cake, and, most important, a sugar-free (no sugar alcohol, please) cake or pie. We expect about 100 people, but would plan for 120. Can someone do this? What cost?
