"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!
Amazing food and chef!
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.
Chef Charly was phenomenal! He was very easy to work with and accommodated all of my food allergies as well as my friends whole 30 diet. The food was delicious and the presentation was superb. He gave me ideas on how I should go about planning my surprise dinner date and it was better than I could have ever imagined. He was very professional and personable. I look forward to having him prepare several meals in the future!
The food Chef Wayne provided was phenomenal!! We had a 40th party with 26 guests, which at the last minute became 27 guests. Chef Wayne had no problems adjusting to the unexpected guest and last minute course changes by our guests. Everyone commented on how excellent the food was and how nicely everything was plated. One note though, the Chef did run later than expected because he was stuck in traffic and coming from another event. Also, the wait staff, who were very nice and very accommodating, seemed a bit inexperienced, but all in all a very very excellent meal. I am very happy I hired Chef Wayne!!
I hired Tamara and her team to take care of my Husband's 30th birthday cocktail party in our apartment. I am so impressed by the level of quality and professionalism I received. From the initial consultation to the spectacular event and with a fast and detailed cleanup, I couldn't have wanted more. Chef Tamara is a gifted Chef with creative menu options and my guests were all so impressed with the cuisine. I have several events a year and look forward to Chef Tamara and he amazing staff take care of them for me. My only regret is that I took so long to write a review as this website kept failing several times when I have tried. Thank you Chef Tamara for doing what you obviously love to do!
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.
I had to hire a chef to come for a small bday dinner for my boyfriend. I needed one on short notice and Nate was ready and able to make this night fantastic! He provided some wonderful options for the menu, showed up on time, and executed several dishes perfectly. He and his assistant were polished and polite. All was provided for a reasonable price. Our whole party had a wonderful time and can't wait to have him back again.
Erika is the onsite chef and nutritionists for our Destination Detox program. She is very knowledgeable, personable, easy to work with and her food is delicious (& healthy!).
Our elegant dinner party with close friends exceeded all my expectations. Chef Martin is a true gem! The food was amazing and the service outstanding. Everything from the appetizers to dessert was so delicious. Chef Martin’s talent and experience were evident and my guests were blown away. Thank you, Chef Martin! We look forward to welcoming you back to our home soon!
I had an amazing experience working with Melissa!! From before the event when we emailed and face timed to plan the menu, till the dinner everything was professional and high quality! We had 10 girls and a number of different dietary restrictions that she easily accommodated. We were at staying at a rental house that she had to work with what we had there and she set up a beautiful table scape, with flowers she picked up! The meal was so delicious and accommodated everybody’s eating restrictions!! Not to mention she was just fun and easy to get along with! Much appreciation to her sous chef for also being our photographer:) Can’t wait to work with Melissa again!!!
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.
Melissa `taught my daughter and me how to prepare vegan dishes. She was terrific! I would recommend her absolutely. Marcia Harris, Silvermine, CT
Chef Alanna was a dream Wonderful to work with and her food was fantastic. We had an unconventional space and she adapted and shined. Would definitely re-hire her.
Working with Chef Dave was great from beginning to end. He helped me throw a 50th birthday lunch. I have done many events and am all about the details and he was just the same. He came to my apartment prior to the event to see my kitchen, the set up, and discussed the rentals we would need. Together, we agreed on a menu, staff, set up, and all other details for the event. He was very easy to communicate with prior to the event, and was just as excited as I was about the party! He was on time and cost conscious. His food was delicious. Throughout the party, my guests kept going in the kitchen to get to know him and thank him. He also prepared a killer sangria for me in advance of the party which was perfectly marinated by the time we had to serve it to my guests. It was a huge hit! Our menu included everything from lamb chops to caesar salad wraps to cheesecake to of course his famous mozarella sushi. He also helped me obtain a hostess and bartender who were both so professional and gracious and all smiles all day! This was definitely a party to be remembered. Between the amazing food of Chef Dave, great service, a surprise rapper, belly dancer, singer, and a DJ on the 49th floor with amazing views of Manhattan, who wouldn't have a great time!? I definitely look forward to working with Chef Dave again. Melissa
Mr. Fraundorfer is a fantastic chef and instructor. Have attended a few of his classes and they all have been informative, fun, and delicious. Chef Stef clearly has a passion for cooking, and his friendly personality really makes learning enjoyable. Always looking forward to another session of cooking with Chef Stef.
JPs Delicacies is run by chef and owner, John Paul. He was experienced and was able to work around all of my special requests. Best food I have had in a long time, highly recommend!
Every single dishes was just delicious! Thank's so much for making my husband's surprise party memorable Chef Perrin. She took time to work with my budget and really came through for us last minute.
Delicious professionally prepared and cooked food delivered to our door! Our family receives breakfast, lunch and dinner and we can't believe we didn't do this a long time ago. Since I'm not able to make our meals anymore we struggled for a while until we spoke to Maison Prive Chefs. They understand our dietary needs and clearly strive to help people. I asked to change one thing and it was done immediately. They make sure we are happy with the food and service all the time. Maison Prive is truly a blessing for us and I would recommend it to everyone!
Overall I was pleased with her service. I liked the fact that hot food was delivered. This lets me know that it was freshly cooked. In addition every guest was pleased with the service. I would definitely recommend with a 100 percent rating.
