I would highly recommend Renegade Outpost to my colleagues, family, and friends. I planned a cocktail party and had a short lead time to coordinate food and beverages. I reached out to 4 potential chefs and Chef Ellen's response was very prompt. She concisely outlined my options and was able to put together a diverse, seasonal food and beverage menu that fit my budget. We were able to finalize the plans in 24 hours. Her team showed up the day of the event and quickly set up. All I had to do was provide a table and they took care of all the other details. Our menu consisted of 6 passed hors-d'oeuvres and an outdoor bar. The hors-d'oeuvres were hearty and flavorful, and each one was better than the next. Many of my guests commented on how much they enjoyed the food. When hosting a party, the last thing I want to do is worry about serving my guests food and drinks. Her team was friendly, professional, and provided excellent service. I would definitely hire Chef Ellen again.
Chef Chris and his team were incredible! Chef was professional and responsive throughout the entire planning process and he was accommodating to all our requests. The food was amazing, and the staff was excellent. They left the place cleaner than when they arrived. Can't wait to work with this team again! Thanksbbb
I found Bacco Caterers on Thumbtack. I was impressed with the five stars and the reviews, so I contacted Chef Lauren to begin to see if she was the caterer for usand was she ever! Joyce and I wanted to include our friends and family in our marriage anniversary celebration in our Brooklyn home. We are novice Open House hosts and Lauren advised us re details we would never have thought of, including in our menu selections. Her staff, chef Amanda and sous chef Laura, created freshly made hors dhoeuvres in our kitchen as the party occurred, superb finger food that was varied, interesting, and delicious! People, including us, loved it. The servers Karen, Tony, and Kevin, and bartender Elroy were unobtrusively attentive and friendly to our guests. Our party took place on two floors and the yard, and the staff kept the food appearing and the empty glasses disappearing with seeming effortlessness. Many guests commented on how comfortable they made everyone feel, contributing to the general sense of joyousness. In spite of our request for no gifts, or perhaps because of it, many of our 50 guests brought flowers. As soon as I was handed the bouquets, Tony would appear and would arrange them in vases I had directed him to when flowers first arrived. I was free during the whole party to visit with my friends and family. I, who am not a party-person, enjoyed myself fully during this celebration, and I am grateful to Chef Lauren and her staff for the many ways (including a fantastic clean-up) they helped make that possible.

Tamara is simply AMAZING! She is not only an extremely capable and very talented chef, but is also a consummate professional. She knew exactly the type of food that would lend itself to our organization and the event. We had nothing to worry about. Tamara catered a 300 person event for us and people are still raving about her delicious and creative food items. She is a joy to work with and helped make our Benefit an incredible success. Thank you Tamara!
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
Do you want to know the definition of Excellence? Hire Luisa c/o De Cicco's Event Planning! I have never worked with a more professional, friendly company. Luisa has a way of catering to her client's and making them feel like they're at the top of her priority list. If you need her, drop her an E-mail and she IMMEDIATELY gets back to you. Need a personal Chef to teach you how to cook? Luisa can connect you with top of the line quality professional's that KNOW what they're doing in the kitchen. I'm currently taking lesson's from her Chef and I went from being a novice who's food was either bland, burnt and completely un-edible, to a person who can now chop, dice and make a meal so good, my family calls me asking me to cook for them again. Luisa and her staff are so friendly, so welcoming and very attentive to the needs of the client. Luisa has done a fine job in picking her staff and Im extremely happy I hired her company because it was worth every penny.
Just paid a deposit to book Melissa for my event next weekend. Yay!!!!!! This is the 1st time I have hired a professional chef to cater for our monthly dinner party and had a lot of questions and concerns before going into it. Melissa has been extremely prompt, professional and patient in addressing all of my issues and I am really looking forward to working with her. I am confident my event will be a great success and I will be sure to post some more reviews/photos thereafter.
Amazing meal and easy to work with. I have hired many chefs but Aless was one of the best. All my guests were impressed.
We had a party for my medical practice for the physicians and their spouses, chef Greg helped make the party a hit - he was professional and took care of everything and obviously the food was beyond our expectations.
We had a great time learning how to prepare some healthy dishes, the food was delicious! We highly recommend Chef Melissa
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.
Tara is fantastic! She catered an event for me at the Anthropologie Store in Short Hills. From start to finish she was extremely professional. She suggested menu items based on my theme for the event and then customized them for our esthetic. Not only did everything look good it tasted amazing. Our customers in Short HIlls, NJ have a very sophisticated palette and they raved about the food. I would certainly use Tara again for any event we would have in the store big or small. She is a talented chef, professional and easy to work with. Jennifer Burnley, Personal Stylist and Event Planner, Anthropologie
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 just hosted a very successful new year eve dinner party for 15 catered by Jeffrey. He was professional responsive, punctual and most importantly a great chef. 4 different hors d'oeuvres were served during cocktail hours before we sat down for a delicious 5 course dinner. I will definitely use Jeff again.
We were looking for an authentic Louisiana chef and Chef Rob fit the bill.....the food was amazing.....fit right into our mardi gras theme......it was delicious and everybody enjoyed it......even had people ask for MORE when there wasn't any!!!!! Fabulous
did a cooking class with the chef. He seemed very knowledgeable about technique and quality. He explained everything clearly. Me and my girlfriend had a great time learning how to make new dishes that we still use till this day. Chef Christopher is awesome!
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!
After vetting several chefs, I knew once I spoke to Germaine that she was the one I would hire. Her positive energy, patience, and level of professionalism were amazing. She held a private tasting for my husband and I at her home and it was clear how much time she put into not just preparing a great meal, but the overall presentation. Needless to stay my event was amazing, the food was delicious as was the service. I would highly recommend Germaine and will most certainly be hiring her again for any of my future events!
Kit is an amazing chef in ever sense of the word. She catered our event for two days and provided delicious meals for every palate. She was sensitive to each persons needs as to gluten intolerant, celiac, vegetarian. Everyone loved all the food.
WOW!!!! I hired Chef Maria for my event this weekend and got so much more than i expected. Chef Maria offered us a soft sampling a few days prior to the event to ensure we were pleased with the menu selected, I WAS BLOWN AWAY!!! Then the day of the event she came 30 minutes early to help set up (btw amazing eye for detail), which was great because it was only me and my best friend and it was a lot of work. Anyway, i leave to get ready and when i return i am knocked off my feet!! The place is so vibrant and the food fragrance was amazing. As my guest arrived they too were in awe. As the party progressed it got even better. Chef Maria was interactive with my guest she didn't just stand there and mechanically hand out meals, she carried light conversation, she even had a cocktail centerpiece included in her package that was just a delight to watch be served. I wish i could post pictures here!! Hands down this Chef was the best experience i've had in a while(and get this she's like soooo young), HIRE HER you can thank me later lol! Ali'Cea
What an amazing Mother's Day with Chef Red and Marco!!!! Could t have asked for a better day. Super professional and the kitchen clean before they left :) a moms dream. It was a day to repeat. Highly recommend him. The food was just as delicious as the presentation. Thank you
