"This was the best food!" EVERYONE Ellen catered to for our dinner last evening could not get over how delicious their meals were. There are not enough words of gratitude I can share with her or any of you who are considering to hire her for your event. Ellen is concise when reaching out with her menus, her menus are organized by cuisine (making it easy to discuss), her response time is excellent, there are no hidden last minute charges, she shows up at the agreed time, is able to work in a challenging kitchen (we are in an office with a no flame policy and she made do with sternos), her food presentation is attractive and appetizing, and she is an absolute gem to work with. I have been in the food and beverage industry for 20 years, worked with many many chefs and Ellen is the real deal. Our group was falling behind and dinner service was delayed by close to 45 minutes. She made sure the main courses were still hot and of the best integrity, which is difficult to do when serving poultry and fish. Everything was seasoned beautifully with a variety of flavors with each course. Truly, the whole experience was magical and I can't wait to work with her again. Thank you so much Ellen!

This was my very first time hiring a Chef and Chef Chris was sooo nice, attentive, and understanding... He prepared brunch for a few friends and I... the food was amazing and the price reasonable. He was so nice to my friends, very personable, an overall great experience! Can't wait to work with him again!

Chef Lauren and her team were fantastic. The food was great, and the service was more than I could ask for. Chef Lauren worked with me to make our nonprofit's event work on our budget, and she was wonderful to collaborate with on the planning. Many of our guests commented on the food, and the host was very pleased with the care they took in her apartment.

We hired Tamara and her team for a 15 person dinner party. I wanted light bites so everyone would be able to eat as they wanted and mingle while enjoying their food. They met every one of my expectations. Tamara with Amoraco catering was so easy to work with. She was timely, responsive, and very flexible in creating the perfect menu for my dinner party. We were lucky enough to have chef Mona cook for us. Mona was so friendly and took care of everything so I did not have to worry about a single thing but enjoying the food and my guests. The food was outstanding-everything she cooked was perfect. We had 15 people and everyone commented on how awesome Mona was and how amazing the food was. Can not recommend Amoraco Catering enough! Will definitely be using them again.

This was last minute, and I haven't had better from chefs who had days to prepare. The menu was well suited to the occasion, the presentation was elegant and the taste good the the last bite. Thanks Wayne

I hired Chef Dan to cater our summer office BBQ. He was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He was professional, friendly, and did his best to accommodate a wide range of dietary restrictions. The food was great and the service unbeatable. All in all a great experience!

Adolfo was absolutely fantastic. From the very beginning, he was available for any question we had and was very prompt and helpful with all of our needs. He was prompt on day of party as well as friendly. Adolfo was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend his catering service. Most importantly, the food was delicious and our guests really enjoyed every bite.

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!

He also cleaned up my whole kitchen and left it spotless clean when he was finished. My husband and I are glad we met him and can rely with him for our next shin ding.

Melissa was great. We had an in-depth conversation up front about our dietary restrictions including a shellfish allergy, a gluten sensitivity, and a dairy sensitivity within our party. Overall, we were aiming for a vegan meal. She worked with us and gave us multiple suggestions on dinner options based on our likes and dislikes. She even came by the house to provide samples of her dishes before the event. The night of the event, she did a great job executing appetizers, dinner, and dessert. The food was delicious and she left our kitchen in better shape than she found. I highly recommend Melissa as your next personal chef!

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!
