The service was outstanding only to be surpassed by the quality of the food. Everything was delicious and all the guests were raving about everything that was served. The quantity was likewise outstanding as we have leftovers enough for the whole week. I would recommend Chuck and his wife to anyone looking for home catering services. It was truly an incredibly lucky find and I'm so glad I hired him for this special occasion. He really made the day extra special and one to remember.

My husband and I were looking for a kind, friendly and personable bartender. After the reading the reviews for Santisi Catering, we decided to book and I am glad that we did. Our Bartender name was Kimberly(same as mine) and I said to myself " we have the same name so I know she will be wonderful". Kim was everything that we wanted in a bartender. I couldn't believe that she went into help mode from the moment she walked in the door, quickly saying "what do you need me to do" and " I will do it for you". We are already lookin forward to doing business again with Santisi Catering. Highly recommended.

Chef Charly did a fantastic job catering a dinner I hosted at my home for 20 people. He cooked several delicious French dishes, delivered them on time and was very easy to work with. I highly recommend him.

This is a first class professional catering service. You really do get what you pay for: not only was the food delicious, but Lauren and her team were superb: very sweet, but also very efficient, paying attention to every detail, and giving us precious advice when needed. Our bartender (whom we had hired separetly because we had a previous relationship with him) failed to show up and Lauren immediately and seamlessly fixed that glitch by re-organizing her staff and deploying 2 of them to tend bar. Every aspect of the service was very good. We cannot recommend them enough and will use them again. Thank you Lauren, Tony, John and all the others.

Tamara and her staff were wonderful,from beginning to the end of the event. Tamara returned every phone call and email at a lightening speed response. The food and presentation was so well done and delicious. I would highly recommend her services. I hit a home run whenI found Amoraco catering services. My daughter will never forget her 30th birthday party.

Daniel Dalessio is a very impressive chef. He made a three-course meal consisting of Caesar salad, lobster ravioli, and a Crème brûlée for my friends and I. Needless to say, we expected the food to be good, but it completely blew us away!! The ingredients were very fresh and the food was prepared perfectly. I definitely recommend Chef Dalessio to everyone and will have him catering my family's parties for years to come!!!

We were extremely happy with the catering services that Manjar provided for a small cocktail party to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. Adolfo and his team were professional and attentive and went above and beyond to make the occasion special. The passed appetizers were delicious and presented beautifully. We can't thank Adolfo enough for his attention to detail and his personalized service that allowed us to enjoy the party and not have to worry about anything.

I was planning a last minute 50th for my husband which I was planning on doing everything myself because it was so last minute. I decided to go with a BBQ even though I knew a family member would be at the grill all day and not be able to enjoy the party. During my planning, I went to a party that Joe was catering. I was so impressed with Joe that I went over and asked if he would be available for my date knowing it was a long shot. Of course he had other parties that day. However, after speaking to him for a while, he was sympathetic to my needs and asked me to give him a call that week and he will check to see if he can put together a team to work my party, but he wanted me to understand he would not be there personally. I understood and trusted his staff would do a good job. I called him that week. First let me start by saying Joe is the most friendly, stand up business man I have ever done business with. He was so helpful with planning my menu and giving me different ideas. Joe's team arrived, set up in 10 minutes and started cooking immediately. They came with some food already prepared so my guest could start while the grill was heating up. The food was delicious from the BBQ meats, the sides and the salads. Joe provided more than enough to serve people twice even three times plus I had left overs. The best part, Joe showed up to check on how everything was going which was not necessary because his staff was professional, friendly and experienced. Like I said, Joe's a great guy. When the crew left, everything was cleaned up and my left overs put to the side. I am still getting calls from my guests telling me what a great BBQ I had, complimenting the food and the staff. LCI Caterers saved me. Joe and his crew made my party a huge success. I will not only use Joe for any future BBQ parties but he will be my go to caterer for all my catering needs. Thanks again Joe.

I met Erika and savored her cooking during a private week long health retreat in Hudson, NY. Erika's cooking was mouth watering, innovative and used local and mostly organic ingredients. All the participants also lost quite a few pounds that week while not feeling deprived and celebrating food! I strongly recommend Erika for catering, health retreats and teaching ....

Chef Martin saved me this summer -- he was able to commit within a short span of time to help with a very open-ended and unorganized situation, and he was on-point, on time, and he was a top-level professional -- enabling me to pull the whole event weekend together without a hitch. I didn't get a chance to actually taste his food myself, but I heard that he didn't disappoint and that he adjusted to what the client needed quite easily. I highly recommend him and his catering services. I look forward to booking him again for my own bosses.

May 18, 2012 Chef Monterroso's services were a " 40th " birthday gift to my nephew who lives in New York. I, however, am located in Arizona and had made the arrangements over the telephone. His pleasant tone, accomodating demeanor, warmth and customer service skills are absolutely amazing. He was so intuitive regarding the menu choices and other requests that I knew immediately that he would be my choice. My nephew and his family were totally pleased. He telephoned me the moment Chef Oscar left his home. My nephew said he was totally blown away by the professionalism, warmth, customer service skills, knowledge and overall service. He could not say enough complimentary things about the food preparation, taste and choices. He and his wife are already making plans to contact him for several upcoming occasions. I would definitely recommend him to any one whether in state or out of state. You definitely get MORE than your money's worth. ONE DRAWBACK: I wish I had been there to savor all of the great food about which my nephew raved. LOL

As someone who is obsessed with food, I know good from mediocre, and mediocre from just plain bad. I am also someone has ZERO capacity to cook for more than, like, 1-2 people at a time…tops 4….but I happen to have a big extended family and group of friends that LOVES to entertain and BE entertained. So, on one hand it’s great because it gives me LOTS of excuses to eat wonderful food to my heart’s content (yay cheat days!); on the other hand, I have panic attacks just THINKING about preparing for one of these parties in terms of planning menus, figuring out what and how much stuff to make, shopping, prepping, cooking, cleaning, etc My heart is actually starting to race right now just WRITING about it!!! However, about 7 years ago, I found my secret weapon. I was at an event my old job was hosting, and the food was AMAZING and so creative and delicious. The theme was gourmet comfort food, and I’ll never forget it because I LOVE comfort food, and the dishes they served at the event were such cool, delicious, creative versions of some of my favorites. I was in the restroom at some point fixing my make-up, and a Chef Alana happened to be at the sink as well. We just started chatting and I liked her instantly. She has such a great energy that you will notice right away when you meet her (and you SHOULD meet her!) As it happened, I was in the beginning stages of planning a holiday party with my sister, and we were tying to decide what to do about food. When I mentioned this to Chef Alana, she immediately threw like 3 great potential ideas at me!!! We exchanged info and I contacted her the next day. We talked about the details of the party, the types of guests they would be there, particular tastes, requirements, special dietary needs of some of the guests, etc. and she said she'd whip up a proposal and get back to me. Two days later she sent me an EPIC menu, layout of how she and her staff would work, breakdown of her price and some great tips as well! I hired her the second I was finished reading....and the rest is history. Chef Alana and her staff have done every single event I have ever needed catered,since then, as well as many for people I have referred her to. On a totally opposite note from being an obsessed foodie and big entertainer/entertainee, I happen to also be a former figure competitor (a category in the bodybuilding world). Now, while I don’t seek out the healthiest dishes when planning a party or family gathering, Chef Alana’s food almost always can be considered “healthy” in that she only uses the freshest ingredients and every single element of every dish is homemade. She skimps on NOTHING in terms of quality, freshness and authenticity. But I digress. The real point I was about to make is that for the two years I was competing, I hired Chef Alana to do all of my meal prepping and delivery. We thoroughly discussed my needs and preferences — which were VERY picky and obnoxious — and she NAILED it every single week. The amount of time and frustration she saved me during that already-stressful time was PRICELESS. I refer all of my friends and family to Chef Alana and her Most Wanted Chef staff any chance I get. She is that good. I actually hate making recommendations to people on services and products, etc. in case things don’t go well and then I’d feel responsible. In all honesty, though, I NEVER hesitate to recommend Chef Alana/Most Wanted Chef, and I will continue to tout her services and UTILIZE her services every chance I get. Do yourself a favor if you have ANY need for a caterer or a private chef - reach out to Chef Alana, be prepared to be blown away, and see why she really is the Most Wanted Chef.

I am confident my event will be a great success and I will be sure to post some more reviews/photos thereafter.

You could not go wrong by choosing Harvest Specialty Catering! Jason and Stella took such amazing care of our guests, who were all family and close friends. They were extremely professional, prompt, courteous, and as hoped, the food was amazing. We chose Harvest Specialty Catering to cater our sons 1st Birthday and we had brunch: the omelette station was a huge hit and the chicken parm was amazing, as well as the rest of our meal. We will definitely be using them for future parties and highly recommend to anyone looking for a caterer that will not disappoint!
