"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!

Chef Charly is an amazing and talented chef. From the food presentation, menu selection to the taste buds all was perfect at my dinner. Having traveled around the world and eaten in many Michelin-starred restaurants and the best restaurants in NY, Chef Charly is at that level of talent and professionalism. I strongly recommend him for small or large group dinners. Looking forward to many more dinners with Chef Charly.

We have used Bacco for three events now and I look forward to having them at our next party! Our guests rave about the delicious food and Chef Lauren and her staff could not be better to work with. I know that I do not have to worry about a thing when I hire Bacco. I would highly recommend this catering company.

AMORACO CATERING DID AN EXCEPTIONAL JOB FOR MY PARTY! I HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF HAVING THIS COMPANY CATER TO THE GUESTS OF ABOUT 40-45 @MY HUSBAND'S BIRTHDAY PARTY. AMORACO,WHOSE EXECUTIVE CHEF IS TAMARA SHENKLE PRESENTED THE OCCASION WITH PROFESSIONALISM, COURTESY, AND, ABOVE ALL-- MOUTH-CATERING CUISINE! AMORACO TOOK CARE OF EVERYTHING: TASTEFUL DECO' (MATCH FOR THE OCCASION), TABLE LININGS, CHINA, CUTLERY ETC.BIRTHDAY CAKE WAS WELL PREPARED AND DECORATED! THE FOOD WAS VERY FRESH, DELECTABLE AND DELICATE. THE MINI LOBSTER ROLLS, CRAB CAKES, MUSHROOM WONTONS WITH BLACK TRUFFLES ARE STILL A HUGE BUZZ AMONG SOME OF MY GUESTS. FRESH HOMEMADE GOURMET DOES REALLY MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN A WELL PREPARED CUISINE. WITH AN EXECUTIVE CHEF LIKE TAMARA, I WILL STRONGLY RECOMMEND AMORACO CATERING. MY HUSBAND WAS VERY HAPPY AND CONTENT.

Chef Wayne hands down provided my " now " Fiance and I with one of the most fantastic meals we have ever had. The seared steak was cooked to perfection and the onion jam on top of it, wow, feLt like I could eat it with anything. So delicious! Chef was also generous enough to record me proposing to my girlfriend. We ended the night with our families surprises my girlfriend and the chef had dessert for 10 and champagne already prepared just waiting for the cue.5 stars around the board. Can't wait to have another meal!

Chef Dan was wonderful. We discussed dishes, presentation, and delivery method prior to the event. Preparing dinner for a large group can be challenging but Chef Dan & Brianna executed everything perfectly and in a timely manner. My guests and I loved the food. Chef Dan was very professional. I highly recommend him!

Chef Erika prepared not only a delicious but a healthy dinner for myself and ten guests in my home, including appetizers and desserts. She worked patiently on the menu with me beforehand offering many options for my vegans guests. In fact, even the non vegan guests found the vegan options delectable!! Chef Erika and her crew shopped for the food, prepared and served the meal and cleaned up the kitchen when they were done. The two women she brought to assist her were amazing. It was such a lovely evening I have already hired Chef Erika for another dinner party in August!

Chef Alana made our first Father’s Day a huge success! From her menu creation for our private Father’s Day BBQ to her flexibility for taking on the job despite some circumstances - Chef Alana prepared an incredible meal that tasted amazing and made sure we were taken care of throughout the evening. Her flavors and cooking techniques clearly make her an expert in her field. On top of it all, she was very easy to work with and managed dietary preferences well. Her menu was thoughtful, elevated and elegant. I couldn’t have imagined a better event!!

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!

5 + Stars. Peter is an exceptional talented and skilled chef. His food and presentation are impeccable and he is lovely to work with. He prepared a unique Texas themed menu and the Texans said it was the best brisket they've ever had--that is a true compliment. Thank you Peter--Susan C.

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!

Excellent experience. Chef Nirva cooked a three course meal, Mediterranean inspired, for my birthday for myself and 9 guests. She made the hummus from scratch and the lamb meatballs were my favorite. The main course was a light yet flavorful rosemary chicken, followed by a chocolate dessert. Chef not only presented the dishes just like at a restaurant, but she explained to everyone how she made the dishes. Thanks so much for making my birthday a great experience!

I have Dee's Dish Chef as ongoing personal chef for my husband and myself. The food is delivered to us 2x a week for 5 days worth of meals. The chef uses the finest ingredients in making our meals. We have been using this company for 8 months now and have no complaints. We have used this service also for small dinner parties with our friends and everyone was very happy with the food.

Matt was an amazing Chef Instructor for my daughter's 7th birthday! Matt was on time, professional, and a lot of fun! He has a real talent for working with kids and dealing with adults. Matt made himself right at home in my kitchen and was a pleasure to engage with. Most importantly he was able to keep a group of 6, 7 year olds completely engaged and happy. I heard him answering their questions like, "how old are you" and other age appropriate questions with a great sense of humor. Matt taught the girls to make pasta from scratch and then helped them to put it through the pasta maker and finally to enjoy the meal they created with two homemade sauces he put together at the same time! If you are looking for a great learning experience for kids, or adults, I highly recommend Matt!
