Ellen, was a lot of fun to work with. We planned a cocktail party for 40-50 for my 45th Bday at the very last minute. She made over 500 pcs of appetizers, created a custom dish (which was delicous) at my request, and helped me plan the cocktails to be served. The upshot is the party was a success, the food was a hit and Ellen and her bartender/server Josh added to the party as I have an open kitchen. I would definitely work with her again and recommend her to friends.

Charly well exceeded our high expectations! I surprised my husband by hiring Charly to cook a multi course meal for our anniversary. The menu he planned was delicious, creative, perfectly plated, and visually stunning. He showed up at our home perfectly organized, poised, and professional w most courses partially prepared and left a few hours later with two very impressed, happy, sated clients and our kitchen spotlessly clean. Charly also happens to be a very charming, nice guy in addition to being a fantastic fine foods chef. We would love to hire him again for another special event or dinner party.

Tamara catered an in-store cocktail party for 70 people/ 2.5 hours. We were very impressed with all aspects of the booking and service. She gave us a fantastic menu to choose from and worked within our budget and wants even going above and beyond by providing additional menu options we did not request. Tamara was able to work in a small space and the entire event was seamless - I highly recommend Tamara for your catering needs.

Chef Wayne was incredible. He was extremely responsive in the days leading up to my dinner party. He arrived on time, was super professional and the food was AMAZING. We had various allergies and food preferences in the group and he was flexible and happily accommodated everyone to make the evening a night to remember. Will definitely use him for future events!

Dan just cooked for and catered a cocktail party for my sons engagement on the roof of my building. I was very nervous since there would be such a mix of people and ages and Dan knocked it out of the park, the foot was outstanding and the service just as good. Working with Dan and his family was an absolute pleasure and they all understand exactly what it takes to make a party successful and deliver it in spades

Brittany Arrocho, the party planner was absolutely fabulous. We had a HS and College Graduation party for our two daughters. She came to our house and perfectly figured out all the rentals that I needed based on the space. We were in constant contact in regards to the menu - she was sweet, professional and very patient! She gave me great suggestions which worked out beautifully. The staff of three promptly came two hours before the party as scheduled and set up for the party. By the time our event started at 4, they were all set up and ready to go. They replenished the appetizers, main course and beverages as necessary. They got rid of used plates and cups when needed. They had a beautiful coffee and tea service that they set up and DeCicco’s made two beautiful cakes as well. When the party was getting close to ending they quietly packed the food up and cleaned without anyone even knowing. They left all the beverages out for remaining guests and the food and plates were in a place in case anyone got hungry again. They cleaned up and even mopped the floor when they left!!! All in all, a too-notch, excellent experience!!! Thank you for making it such a beautiful party!!!!!

I contacted Adolfo Silverio of Manjar Boutique Catering to help me with a cocktail party for 80 people last weekend. Because I was planning from a distant city, I was understandably nervous about getting everything arranged and accounted for. From the very first email, Adolfo put my fears to rest. He was very professional, answered all of my questions and made suggestions of things I had not even thought of. He did two walk throughs of the venue beforehand, suggested furniture arrangement, and had everything planned before the night of the party. The party itself was a breeze for me--the food was unique and delicious, the staff was right on top of things (as hostess, the staff made sure my wine glass stayed full--I never had to excuse myself to go to the bar), and everything flowed smoothly. The whole experience was exceptional, and the best part was Adolfo's timely communication--if he said he would phone me at 5 pm, the phone rang at 5 pm. All my emails were answered promptly, and as I stated before, this all went a long way towards making me feel like the party would be a great success--and it was!

We celebrated our 1st year wedding anniversary and hosted a cocktail party for the occasion with approximately 50 guests. We hired Kulinary Kings to prepare an assortment of hors d'oeuvres that consisted of beef, chicken and seafood. In addition to dessert. Chef Gregory Evans prepared the food to perfection. Everything he prepared was so delicious. The chicken salad on gourmet black pepper cracker and the filet over sweet potato was to die for. Our guests are still raving about the food and service. He arrived on time and immediately started preparing the food. We also had two servers and one bartender. They were all professionally dressed. Our guests were very impressed and appreciative that they wore rubber gloves when handling the food. The Servers were very professional and attentive ensuring that everyone was okay. In fact, my husband and I never had to look for them, as they were always there ensuring that we were okay. Very friendly and sweet young ladies. We had a signature drink "Bohemian" (chambord, peach vodka and champagne). The Bartender wasn't familiar with this cocktail but was very eager to learn how to make it. She worked with me to get it to perfection. Our guests loved it. She was also able to make and keep up with whatever drink requests our guests had. She did not become overwhelmed by the number of requests...very friendly and professional. We will definitely hire Kulinary Kings for our next event and request to have the same young Ladies accompany him...although we're sure that his entire staff are just as friendly and professional as the three young Ladies who worked our event. We are so happy that we chose Kulinary Kings. Awesome job! Carl & Diane

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!

Peter and his professional staff made the event painless and enjoyable (at-home cocktail party wedding reception for 68 people). They worked efficiently behind the scenes during the event so I never had to worry about food and beverage serving. Beautiful presentation, impeccable service with a smile, and most importantly - tasty! They set up 4 hours in advance and cleaned up our home exactly as they found it.

Dorothy truly outdid herself! She listened to our needs, and provided an abundance of cake samples, above and beyond what we expected, and truly made the decision hard to narrow down the flavors because they were all so good! I provided her with an image of the cake we wanted and it came out perfectly. There was more than enough cake for our 120 guests and at the end of the party there was none left over which I have never seen at an event, so that just goes to tell you how tasty her cake was! We decided on chocolate cake with a chocolate mousse on one layer, and a yellow cake with golden oreos on the other; everyone loved both of them, but I must say that the chocolate cake was a true fan favorite! If you want a quality design with a moist and great tasting cake, Dees Desserts is the way to go!

My name is Marisa and I hired Harvest Specialty to cater my birthday party. I dealt directly with Jason and when I told him what I had in mind he knew just what to do and came up with the best menu to accommodate everyone. The price was extremely reasonable and Jason was always available if I had questions or concerns. The day of the event Jason arrived on time and set everything up beautifully and quickly. The food was so delicious everyone at the party was asking about the caterer. I would definitely use Harvest Specialty again and I would definitely recommend them to all my friends.

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!
