"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!

This chef was out-of-this-world!! He served a three course meal and I couldn't find anything we wanted to change about it. It was simply perfection. He put his personal touch into the meal and really ensured he would allow us to enjoy the evening. His food was amazing from start to finish. You could taste his passion with every bite. And, he was so friendly, charming, and professional - a total win.

Chef Chris was super responsive which allowed us to get straight to business! After our brief telephone conversation, he immediately drafted my personal menu with the exact items I wanted! My spouse and I are really looking forward to meeting him on our scheduled upcoming date.

The Bacco team did a perfect job. The food and service were impeccable and everything was the height of professionalism. We ended up at the high end of our expected guest count and they performed magic to make the space work!

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

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!

We hired Chef Dan for my husbands birthday. It was all of our family of about 12 adults plus 6 children. From the moment our guest arrived they were in awe about the professionalism and excellent food prepared by Chef Dan. We had what seemed like endless appetizers. We felt like we were at a 5 star restaurant right at our home. The experience was definitely worth it and my guest are still talking about the food. Must have the lobster Mac and cheese!

When you hire Manjar you know your event is in excellent hands! Their exquisite taste and attention to details has made our "tight budgets" into a beautiful celebration of food, decor, and specialty mocktail & cocktails. His team treats each event as if you are part of their family. Over the last 7months, I have had the pleasure of working with their event team & chefs on at least 10 events, including new product launches, corporate, wedding, and celebratory events in NJ private estates, galleries, retail environments & nyc apartments. The guests rave about the service & food. At the most recent event, my client was very demanding, last minute, with specific dietary needs... Manjar surpassed my expectations. I would recommend them for any event from a french service sit-down dinner, graduation celebration, to a summer garden cocktail party. Trust them with what you need and you will not be disappointed! Great events, all of the details attended to, and great results so you can enjoy your own event!

Chef Erika was so easy to work with from beginning to end. I was hosting a baby shower, so there was a lot of activity -- but she just came in and quietly created the most amazing, healthy fall meal. It was the perfect way to really spend time with loved ones and not feel the pressure of having to cook all day and time everything perfectly. We couldn't have been happier with the entire experience!

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.

We had a wonderful time at our group cooking class at La Pulperia. Chef Carlos and his team were so gracious (accommodating of food allergies) and the food was delicious - empanadas, salmon tartar, guacamole and ricotta gnocchi (which we learned how to make). We enjoyed making one of their signature cocktails and sipped wine (and tequila). Thanks to Chef Carlos and everyone at La Pulperia for such a fun and unique time. Also, thanks so much to Tyler for setting everything up!

Chef Oscar is absolutely incredible and I cannot recommend him highly enough - we had him and his chef Chris do a four course dinner for a group of 10 for my fiancé's birthday dinner - Asian inspired with chicken satay, short rib, wasabi mashed potatoes... one of the best meals. He came on time, prepared and left the kitchen cleaner than before- so pleasant to work with, already planning the time we can work together!

Melissa was great. We had an in-depth conversation up front about our dietary restrictions including a shellfish allergy, a gluten sensitivity, and a dairy sensitivity within our party. Overall, we were aiming for a vegan meal. She worked with us and gave us multiple suggestions on dinner options based on our likes and dislikes. She even came by the house to provide samples of her dishes before the event. The night of the event, she did a great job executing appetizers, dinner, and dessert. The food was delicious and she left our kitchen in better shape than she found. I highly recommend Melissa as your next personal chef!

I hired BSK for a surprise birthday that I was throwing in the city, and I have to say that not only were they accommodating and really helpful during the planning, but they were absolutely spectacular at the event: Not only were they very accommodating to my guests, but they were prompt, organized, and really timely. Every part of the evening, from appetizer to dessert was so well timed, yet totally relaxed. Ora and Sara Elise were friendly, approachable, and even accommodating (as so many people loved the food, there were many questions on the recipes!) I had requested that the meal itself be vegan-accessible, with the addition of a simple protein like poultry. The food was so delicious and tasty that many of my guests (at finding out some of the options, like the cashew-ginger soup, were vegan) actually said "if I could eat like THIS every day? I would totally be vegan". The chicken was flavourful and juicy, the peach cake was light and deliciously peachy, the cheese board was a HIT... I mean, I could go on, truly, but you get the point. Overall I would not hesitate for a second to hire them again. If you are looking for some talented, responsive, friendly and personable chefs, you have found your match.

The chefs are most accomodating to my dietary needs all the while making me feel like I'm not missing out on the foods I love. I was served a delicious and completely Vegan Mexican inspired dip that was seasoned perfectly and was creamy and "meaty". Their food was amazing!

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!

JP and his team were fantastic and we look forward to working with him again. He catered an event for 120 guests the night before our wedding so it was pretty important to us that it went right! The food was delicious, we still have friends telling us how much they loved it. He really goes above and beyond to ensure a good experience and provided us with many more dishes than we had anticipated. I would absolutely recommend him.
