Chris did an amazing job catering an event I was at. He was charismatic and charming as well as professional and the food was exquisite! I'll never forget the cheese/Apple/prosciutto crisps, that was a culinary genius paring.

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 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.

Tamara and her team were absolutely spectacular! Everything was perfect, from the food to the service to every little detail we hadn't thought of but Tamara had. People raved about the food and the mixed cocktails all night long and kept asking where we found such an incredible catering team! I will look back on our engagement party as one of the best nights of my life, and I know a large part of that experience is how incredible Tamara and her team made the evening!! Cannot recommend enough!

I have no words to describe how overjoyed we are that we found this catering company. * Communication was direct, no hidden fees, price offer was itemized and detailed so we could see exactly what we're paying for. * Tasting was wonderfully coordinated and very (very) generous. :D * The team rolled with the punches (we had a non-standard venue, lots of small changes, and mostly questions and confusion) and was super understanding and tolerant. * Event was SUPERB. I keep getting compliments from friends who attended about every single dish. These guys are phenomenal. Hire for whatever event you need (ours was a wedding), but don't skip the tasting because it's sooooooo good :) Looking forward to working with them again!

Five stars doesn't do them justice! Our experience with Ms. Reid-Worthington and everyone at 'Now That Was A Great Party' was outstanding. Ms. Reid-Worthington was a consummate professional from the very first email to the very last moments of our event. Their food was absolutely devoured and received rave reviews from our guests! Ms. Reid-Worthington made such an effort to create a menu that reflected our vision for the day- even taking on special requests. She was open, patient, kind and offered great and helpful suggestions. While this time around we only hired 'Now That Was A Great Party' for catering- I know that they do full event planning, and based on my experiences, I would be extremely confident having them plan my event from start to finish. We had a great feeling right from the start about 'Now That Was A Great Party', and about business owner, Ms. Reid-Worthington, and our instincts were spot on. We're looking forward to working with 'Now That Was A Great Party' for many years to come!

I placed a catering order for my Conference Championship Football party this year through DeCicco's and could not be happier. I met with their event planner, Francesca, who I found to be very responsive, attentive and professional. Francesca noted any concerns I had, was quick to quote me a price for the event, and I couldn't find one complaint once the order was fulfilled. She truly is a credit to this organization, and I will definitely be ordering from them again!

Working with Ellen was wonderful. Her professionalism, courtesy and thoughtfulness were outstanding. Her food was both delicious and presented beautifully. I am so happy I went with her and will gladly call her again. So low key and genuinely a very nice person. She helped with so many things that were above and beyond her job. I highly recommend Ellen to cater your party. Mine was a small graduation party of 35 people at a community room in a NYC apartment building. It has difficult parking and drop off for all her catering materials. But Ellen made it work. She also helped me plan a very tasteful menu. Also her assistant, Alex, was so professional and diligent. They both really helped make my party a success!

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. :)

JP and his team were fantastic and we look forward to working with him again. He catered an event for 120 guests the night before our wedding so it was pretty important to us that it went right! The food was delicious, we still have friends telling us how much they loved it. He really goes above and beyond to ensure a good experience and provided us with many more dishes than we had anticipated. I would absolutely recommend him.

From start to finish, working with Adolfo was reassuring, engaging, and fun. After describing what I wanted – healthy appetizers and noshes in a public park for 30, 40, or 50 people, he sent photos of exactly what I wound up ordering, after my cousins and I studied his menu in detail, inside and out. He had me at those photos – the skewers with rich-colored dressings and edible orchids, mini-sandwiches framed in fragrant Rosemary, delicate looking shrimp rolls, the bright crudité platter not only looked gorgeous, but everyone raved at how fresh and delicious it all was. Adolfo simply made me look good – best afternoon meal I never cooked. After seeing those photos it was easy to pick a table cloths – white – his platters did all the talking. To compliment the apps, he provided a lovely selection of soft drinks – juices, iced tea, lemonade, sparkling and plain water – chilled on arrival. As my number of guests increased, he suggested what I might want to add and what to stay away from. I greatly appreciated the benefit of his experience. I am terrible at making decisions. Adolfo never pushed me, but when I asked for his suggestion, he gave it, for which I was so grateful. Dealing with me is not easy – stressed, perfectionist, indecisive on a good day, much less as the date of this difficult event drew closer. But he hung in there, editing our contract as the order changed, editing anything I suggested. He was quick to reply, and welcomed me to call, text or email with questions. On the day of the event he was there right on time, with a text in advance to let me know he was on his way. This was just supposed to be a “drop off” but he spent a lot of time with us setting up, including tips on how to make the table look all the more beautiful, with platters arranged at different heights, using the nice packaging in which he delivered them. The trays he uses are beautiful, as are the matching tongs and spoons. He made our afternoon “snack” in a NYC public park absolutely elegant. He even posted little signs in front of each of the platters describing ingredients – something every vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, paleo, kosher foodie would surely appreciate. Anyone who is investing in catering is concerned about making a nice gathering. My guest count ultimately grew to 80, and he didn’t flinch – whether 35 or 80 he showed me the same patience, and I went into the event feeling confident about the food. I was delighted that it looked and tasted as beautiful and delicious as the photos indicated. I highly recommend Adolfo. He approached my gathering with a fun, exciting, and very respectful spirit, making me feel like I was his only customer, though I knew he had others this past springtime Saturday. My guests all commented on the lovely food and drink and its presentation. My thanks and gratitude to Adolfo and everyone at Manjar for exceeding my expectations.
