Ellen was instrumental in catering at our home for my wife's birthday event. Food was plentiful, varied and delicious. Ellen worked with our palate, our specific requirements (vegetarian) and home setup to provide an excellent spread for our us and our guests. She came up with creative ideas to add flavor and variety and worked extra hard to provide impeccable service. Both Ellen and her delicious food were stars at the party.

My wife and I hosted around 50 Guests and 15 kids for my Daughters first birthday. Every Detail Catering had a great menu to choose from, and Chuck (the owner) had some really good recommendations that worked out great. The food arrived perfectly on time and was set up with no worries (while my wife and I ran around the house doing other things). Everyone was really happy with the food and we had plenty to go around. The garlic butter rolls where amazing. It was a good sign that the stack of business cards that Chuck left where all gone when the party was over. Would be happy to use them again or recommend every detail catering to anyone. Now its time to eat some leftovers =)

I use NY Catering Service both personally and professionally. The quality of food is always fresh and outstanding. The attentiveness, professionalism and friendliness of the staff, is always top notch. If you are looking for a catering service that will exceed your expectations each and every time, look no further! Chef Chris Nirschel and his team rock!

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.

We had a party for my wife's birthday at the house for 40 people and could not have been more pleased with Adolfo Silverio and Manjar Catering. Both the food and the service were first class. Adolfo worked with us on the menu and layout for the party and everything went off without a hitch. People were raving about the food from the duck crepes to the quesadillas and the service including set-up, passing service, and clean-up were executed flawlessly. T.G. - Stamford

Everything was perfect. Alana showed up early and even though she had to park in a fire hydrant stayed until I arrived to greet me and make sure everything looked great. Catering was for private concert for 26 Upper East Side parents and everyone was blown away by the food and even commented on how great it looked and how good she did incorporating some vegetarian options. Will definitely reach out to Alana in the future for events both intimate and large.

Chef Greg and his team did an excellent job setting up and catering yummy foods at my wedding. Greg is very passionate in cooking... you will know it after you try his food. All my guests are still raving about the foods served that day especially the fish, braised beef polenta, and oxtail. The foods were not only delicious but also, illustrated remarkable artistic culinary skills. Stephanie was great in handling all the logistic parts, love the decor and end-result of the wedding venue. It was simply beautiful and elegant. Thank you for making my wedding day extra special!

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!

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.

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!

JP catered a party for us of about 40 adults and 20 kids and we had a great experience working with him - highly recommend his services! He was responsive and flexible during the planning phase, able to modify his gameplan day-of when our rooftop venue got rained out :( and prepped and served the food efficiently, beautifully and notably, without needing anything from us as hosts, letting us truly enjoy the party. On top of all that, all the guests loved the food itself and several have inquired about contacting JP for their own events. I’m happy to make those connections because JP is truly a great chef and a consummate professional!

I dropped off something to a baby shower & BK Catering was setting up the food & bar areas. Everything was organized & well placed. Mrs Lee was pleasant & offered me a tasting of a selection. Honey Ginger wings were outstanding!
