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.
They are great caterers. My guests loved the food and a few asked for their contact info for future events
An incredible meal by an incredible chef. I hired Chris to cook dinner for my wife's 29th birthday (it was just the two of us) at our apartment. He was right on time with all the right equipment, and he made use of our kitchen in ways we never knew our kitchen wanted to be used. He made the pasta (ricotta and Parmesan gnudi) from scratch, cooked the filet Mignon perfectly, and finished it all off with a beautiful chocolate avocado pudding. Heck, even the Caprese salad was amazing (he made the blackberry balsamic vinaigrette from scratch), and I hate salad. What's even better is that Chris worked with me to customize the menu (meat for me, spicy and vegetarian for my wife), and he really included my wife in making the pasta with him, because I told him how much she loves cooking lessons and being a part of the process. Overall, an amazing night that my wife is still bragging about to her friends and family. Guys, if you need to win some brownie points with your girl or guy, Chris is the brownie mix. The food will be great, and Chris is super friendly and fun so the entire experience will be fun, too. Highly recommend for date nights and special occassions.
Bacco Catering was a great choice for our event. We used them for a charity event at our store and they performed incredibly. Our guest were so pleased as many of them asked me " who are the caterers, this food and service is amazing". Thank you Lauren so much for such a great night.
Chef Charly was excellent. I had planned on surprising my wife for our anniversary and he proved to be an excellent choice. Every dish he made was flavorful and tasty. My wife was vegetarian and Chef Charly was able to accommodate my request that tailor the menu accordingly. He was on time, prepared the dishes promptly. His arrangement was beautiful and as I said before the food even tastier. He was a pleasure to speak too and even gave us tips on how to prepare some of these items on our own. I am glad, that I went with him and would recommend him to everyone.
Working with Tamara was terrific. She offered me several different options and helped with a referral for wine to be delivered. She also provided a bartender who helped set up and clean up after. Sliders were delicious as were shrimp dish and cheese trays with fruit. Empanadas both chicken and vegetarian were a big hit as were fresh baked brownies. I thought the chicken curry satays could have been a bit spicier and flavorful. All else was Fabulous and I would use her again and highly recommend her service. Thank you very much. Ken
The food Chef Wayne provided was phenomenal!! We had a 40th party with 26 guests, which at the last minute became 27 guests. Chef Wayne had no problems adjusting to the unexpected guest and last minute course changes by our guests. Everyone commented on how excellent the food was and how nicely everything was plated. One note though, the Chef did run later than expected because he was stuck in traffic and coming from another event. Also, the wait staff, who were very nice and very accommodating, seemed a bit inexperienced, but all in all a very very excellent meal. I am very happy I hired Chef Wayne!!
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.
Helpful sales and delivery staff. Wonderful food with vegan options. Thank you!!
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 Stenneth Grant and his business partner Shanique Walker lent their exquisite culinary and catering talents to our wedding to glittering effect. We could not have been happier with their service and the sumptuous spread they prepared for us and our guests at the dinner reception. The menu was a thoughtfully curated mix of African-American, Caribbean, and Asian inspired cuisine, with options for both non-vegetarians and vegetarians. Not only was the food flavorful and delicious, it was also beautifully garnished and presented. Our guests raved about every single dish and were practically falling over themselves to grab seconds. Not surprisingly, several of them have asked for Stenneth and Shanique's contact information and plan to hire them for their own upcoming events. It's true what they say: word-of-mouth is the best recommendation; and these satisfied guests were singing Stenneth and Shanique's praises. To top it all off, the two exude utter professionalism as well as genuine warmth and passion about what they do. Although we contacted them somewhat late in the planning process to cater our wedding, they easily accommodated us, even putting together a free tasting on relatively short notice. They were punctual in delivering the food and their set up was speedy and seamless. All in all, it was an unqualified pleasure working with Stenneth and Shainique. We're still savoring the memories of their excellent cuisine and service. I hope we'll have occasion to hire them again. It hasn't been a week since our wedding and one of our guests already has hired them to cater an event--and on short notice to boot. How's that for validation! You can't go wrong with this excellent team! Thanks, Stenneth and Shanique! You're the best!
Did fully vegetarian meal (at my request). Overall experience 5/5 (he was on time, professional, flexible, prepared: minimal work on my part and evening went seamlessly). Presentation 5/5 (everything came out perfectly plated and beautiful), food 4/5 (most was great, some just good), price 4/5 (a little more than I wanted to spend but reasonable compared to other quotes). Ask to get the leftovers!
Carol and the whole staff at T&C catering did a phenomenal job on our wedding. They provided us with a buffet, appetizers, dessert, and coffee for about 100. They were extremely accommodating of our dietary restrictions (vegan & vegetarian) and made food that even our meat-eating guests loved. They did a great job helping our largely DIY event run smoothly. Carol is very organized and coordinated really well with our DJ to make sure the dinner portion of the day ran along schedule. We could not be happier with the work that Carol and her team did.
Working with Chef Dave was great from beginning to end. He helped me throw a 50th birthday lunch. I have done many events and am all about the details and he was just the same. He came to my apartment prior to the event to see my kitchen, the set up, and discussed the rentals we would need. Together, we agreed on a menu, staff, set up, and all other details for the event. He was very easy to communicate with prior to the event, and was just as excited as I was about the party! He was on time and cost conscious. His food was delicious. Throughout the party, my guests kept going in the kitchen to get to know him and thank him. He also prepared a killer sangria for me in advance of the party which was perfectly marinated by the time we had to serve it to my guests. It was a huge hit! Our menu included everything from lamb chops to caesar salad wraps to cheesecake to of course his famous mozarella sushi. He also helped me obtain a hostess and bartender who were both so professional and gracious and all smiles all day! This was definitely a party to be remembered. Between the amazing food of Chef Dave, great service, a surprise rapper, belly dancer, singer, and a DJ on the 49th floor with amazing views of Manhattan, who wouldn't have a great time!? I definitely look forward to working with Chef Dave again. Melissa
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. :)
My firm hired David and Paglia Hospitality Inc. to provide breakfast and lunch and a platter of goodies to leave with us for a company event for our employees. One of the partners was enamored with the idea of having a food truck as the caterer for our event. So begins this culinary experience. I asked for typical breakfast fare and he delivered: Homemade corned beef hash, ricotta pancakes, Brioche French toast, and breakfast sandwiches plus more. His food was delicious and was a wonderful way to start our day! In regards to lunch, he even delivered more: Parmesan chicken wings, Tuscan BBQ wings, fried bacon rice balls, lobster rolls, fish tacos, roasted brussel sprouts with Calabrian chili, 5 different sandwiches and 3 burgers. We also had cookies and brownies. He was on time. He was professional. Most importantly: He worked fast to feed 30 people, with every order made upon request! I highly recommend Paglia Hospitality: you will not be disappointed.
Very professional, but also very personable & relaxed. Was prepared with ideas & settings. this was a small dinner party, about 20 people. the table setting had a Fall deco & was quite lovely. The food, some catered, some prepared by party planner, was delicious. The quests were very impressed. I would definitely request Mrs. Worthington's services again!
Last summer 2016, I had a small intimate brunch for close friends. Cornbread26, were in charge of catering and serving. 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.
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!
John Paul delivered the food himself insuring that I didn't serve the wrong sauce with the wrong appetizer etc. and brought everything I would need for serving as well as consuming. He was very professional, charming and the food was delicious. Thanks!
Hiring Elemental Catering was, hands down, the best decision we made throughout our wedding planning process, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. We were working on a tight budget for our wedding and had a large enough guest count that required us to hire a caterer. As we didn't know anyone who had used Elemental Catering before, we were on the fence about whether to hire them, so we asked if we could do a tasting with them. This allowed us to meet the incredible duo, Larry and Karen, and taste some of their wonderful dishes--some of which made it onto our menu. Throughout the wedding planning, they were thoughtful in their approach and kept our budget in mind, offering us more affordable, beautiful and tastier options along the way. They added their input where needed but gave us the space to make the decision and supported us every step of the way. Weddings aren't often known for having great food, but every one of the guests we've talked to have commented on how amazing the food was. Without question, we'd hire Elemental Catering again, and unreservedly recommend hiring them!
