Ella was phenomenal. She really helped us knock our catered business lunch for 50+ people out of the park. She was easy to work with and went the extra mile with presentation.
We recently returned from a family and friends vacation in Costa Rica. We rented a beautiful 5 bedroom home (for 1 week), just off the 17th tee at the Four Seasons resort in Papagayo. We flew in the Bad Boy Chef, Chris Nirshel from New York City, to dazzle us with exotic dishes and flavors. Dazzled we were. It was obvious that Chris knew his way around the kitchen, and just watching Chris do his thing was like watching a gourmet ballet. From breakfast, to delectable snacks, lunch and dinner, Chris was the star of our Costa Rican vacation. Chris did all the shopping for the local foods, spices, fruits and vegetables and was just plane fun to hang out with. Living up to his bad boy reputation, Chis went Four Wheeling on some dangerous mountain, flipped his Four Wheeler, and came back looking like he had gone 14 rounds with Iron Mike Tyson... broken toe, ribs and covered in dirt and lacerations... but the delights from the kitchen never stopped! We are going to rename Chris The Terminator Chef. So folks, my money is on this bad boy chef as Chris made our vacation one we will not forget, ever, unless we get Alzheimer's. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!
Charly provided a wonderful catered lunch in our photo studio. Everyone was satisfied and he was very accommodating.
I love Bacco! I called Lauren shortly before my son's communion to inquire about catering lunch for 40. Lauren's suggested menu was perfect and didn't even compare in quality to the other samples I received. The day of the event the food was delivered and set up while we were at church. My guests and I were blown away when we got home to see the food displayed beautifully and it tasted just as great. Perfect luncheon. I can't wait to use Lauren and Bacco again. Everything was just as promised and more!
I used Tamara for my engagement party and she was fantastic! I had about 60 people and we started with passed h'ourderves during a cocktail hour in one room (she provided the staff and a bartender). While this happened she was setting up the buffet dinner in another room. She let me know when it was ready and then (timing was flawless) we moved into the second room for dinner. My friends and family raved about the food, which included gluten-free and vegan options as many had dietary restrictions. We had a French theme as I had gotten engaged in France and Tamara worked with me on a French menu, including a delicious chocolate-hazelnut crepe desert with fresh berries. She was totally on-point with timing, presentation, and professional execution, including proactively handling things like insurance with the building so it wasn't a hassle for me. The reason I initially chose her was because she was more reasonable than the other bids I received for caterers in New York but she offered identical services to what they had proposed and she went the extra mile the day of the event. I will definitely be using her again and I would highly recommend her to anyone. I am still receiving compliments on her food and the friendliness/professionalism of her staff.
Food was delicious! Wayne was great from the beginning to the end of the planning and actual dinner. His food and service were outstanding. He pays attention to detail and delivered exactly what I requested. We had a 5 star restaurant experience right in our dining room.
At the end of the meal, all of our guests applauded. I think that's the best way to sum it up. Delicious food and we didn't lift a finger!
We had a party in our home for 30 colleagues. Chef Dan arrived exactly on time and brought everything he needed with him. He prepared an array of visually appealing and delectable tasting culinary creations that wowed our guests taste buds and satiated their appetites. The bartender was great and the servers did an impeccable job of constantly bringing Dan's gourmet offerings while being pleasant and unobtrusive. Many caterers provide quantity and some high quality- chef Dan did both at a reasonable price and with a smile on his face. He cooked everything fresh in our kitchen and when he and his staff finished, our kitchen looked as pristine as when he arrived. The party was great fun and a big success. Every one of our guests commented on how fabulous the food was and how outstanding the service. He is our go to guy for any future parties or affairs. kudos and thanks. Mel & Pamela Pratter
Maria was extremely helpful in selecting options for a Baptism lunch. The food arrived on time, was beautifully plated and delicious. Will definitely use them again!
Adolfo and his team catered my mother's 60th Surprise Birthday Party for 15ppl in her apartment. It was an absolute success!!! the food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. the flavor profiles as each course came out complimented the ones before. it was a cohesive menu that we both worked on preparing. the favorites of the night were the mini grilled cheese with the tomato soup shot and the duck wraps. The mini lobster rolls were tasty and we took the leftover lobster and ate them as lettuce wraps. But everything was delish!! I spoke to many caterers and his level of professionalism and follow up was what truly drew me to his as I knew he could be trusted and cared for this event to be a success as much my sisters and i did. Everyone was so pleased and in awe of the service. As soon as an item was sent out - the napkins were whisked away. My sisters and I were able to enjoy my mother's party due to the prompt attention and efficiency of Adolfo's staff. I would love to hire Adolfo again for all my parties. It's well worth it and I'm so fortunate that I was able to find his services. Thank you for his team for making it so special. My mom was blown away- much success to you!! Thumbtack community - please hire them! You will not be disappointed.
I own a shop in Hudson, NY called Valley Variety. We have a full kitchen where we host demos, classes, dinners and other chef events. Erika a reliable resource for planning and leading classes that combine nutrition and cooking for a healthy life. We've worked together on a number of classes, including a diabetic support group, a girls getaway picnic lunch, company team building dinner and other seasonal cooking themes. You can count on Erika to develop menus that are true to her healthy eating philosophy but are achievable for a home cook. Throughout the class time, Erika engages people to discuss their nutrition concerns and provides practical tips on preparing healthy and delicious meals at home. I've had great experiences working with Erika and look forward to working with her on more events.
I had a great experience using Chef Aless (for both a dinner and a catered event for 30 people). I will definitely be hiring her in the future!
HighLife Productions planned a cooking experience team building event for my department. We prepared a cocktail and a dish and were later seated to enjoy the meal we prepared! We had a great time!
Chef Martin is amazing! He was so communicative and set an amazing menu from the beginning. His prices are also much more reasonable fair than other caterers I’ve spoken with. We used him for our daughters birthday party, and we had 60 guests. On the day of the event, Chef went above and beyond to ensure he provided a beautiful presentation, delicious food, and professional service. I would highly recommend!
Absolutely incredible! Literally everything about SGS was excellent, the food, service and the strong level of communication and attentiveness. We hired SGS for a 15 person catered birthday dinner, and Stenneth did a fantastic job. Food: DELICIOUS - everyone loved the food, especially they truffle mash potatoes, risotto, Asian glazed salmon, and tuna tartare tobiko. The presentation was also beautiful, there were decorative flowers in the dishes, and everything was arranged very neatly and professionally. Seriously better than several michelin star restaurants and obviously better than my own cooking, haha. Service: Stenneth was incredibly attentive and helpful - walking us through every step of the process from menu creation to logistics coordination to cutlery selection. He was very responsive with a near immediate response time to my inquiries. He was also very diligent and prompt in the food delivery and setup. (My only minor criticism is that the initial menu contained a few spelling errors and was inconsistently formatted - however I do not consider this a downfall at all as I easily just updated the menu format on Word myself, and was also able to customize it a bit) Overall 5/5 highly recommend and will definitely hire again! Thank you SGS!!
Peter and his team were absolutely amazing. Not only was he great at communicating with me prior to the event, but he also offered many delicious options for the menu to ensure there would be something for everyone at my party. The team was on time and very respectful of the staff and the space, putting together a lovely set-up with flowers (!) that made the event feel that much more special. The food and drinks were delicious. My personal favorite were the pulled pork sliders and mojitos, but everyone raved about how delicious all of our appetizers were. Peter even sent a special plate over to me (the host) to ensure I'd have a chance both to eat and sample his delicious menu. I cannot say enough about the friendliness of him and his staff throughout the night. They were just so thoughtful and professional. I would (and will!) absolutely hire Peter and Creative Table Catering again in the future. My friends were also very impressed by him and the value of the services he offered at my event. In a city with innumerable options for caterers, I would highly recommend Peter for any event you have. He made my special night a celebration to remember.
Carol and her staff helped us have an amazing wedding experience. The food was a hit, and the bartender did a great job too. I don't expect to get married again, but if you are looking for caterers, go with T and C!
I would rate this five star if it didn't have two little accidents. One was we couldn't find a lighter when it was time to light the candles on the cake. Another was kind of a miscommunication, I took a cake for my son but then I myself forgot to take one so the catering team thought I had one already but I guess I was the only one who didn't have the cake as the birthday girl. I don't mind that much because I'm not a cake person and this type of mistake could probably only happen to me bc I think any other person would have requested it. So I wouldn't think it's the catering team's fault. Just letting you know if you are like me who doesn't crave for cakes and will be busy running around, you better get one first, haha. Overall I think the team did a great job. The manager arrived early, the food was delicious, the team was fast and professional, the plating was nice, the manager even helped to bring special bamboo plates for the cake, which is of great quality. I didn't taste much of the wine selection but it seems my friends were happy about them. The pricing was very reasonable and communication was easy. The only possible improvement I could think of is probably adding 2-3 courses. I would highly recommend this caterer to my friends.
Rex was so lovely. He came early to set up. Brought some of his own gear. Dressed neatly and festive, Was so kind, helpful in all the cleanup too. And he even gave our caterers a hand in the kitchen, Would use Rex and his company again for sure.
I hired JP for a birthday dinner for my husband - he cooked a beautiful 5-course dinner for 9 people. The food was delicious and exactly what I was looking for. Everyone loved it!
