The food was Fabulous. The caterer was late and didn't tell me that she doesn't provide heating trays or any utensils etc. I didn't ask about those things because all the other caterers supply them and I just assumed she would as well. Otherwise, Ellen is a very nice person and did a great job. I was happy with the food and service.
They accommodated our need for halal and gluten free easily. Everything was very good.
Matt was great for my event. From the start, he was very responsive and helped provide the list of what to buy. He also alleviated some of the planning by catering the appetizers which made it super helpful. We hired 1 server and 1 bartender-- which we definitely should've hired one more person for the amount of guests we had-- but the two were super helpful. Even when it was down pouring, Matt continued to help and serve guests. I would absolutely recommend Matt. If you are even thinking about having servers at your event, definitely go with Santisi Catering!
Charly came to my apartment to prepare a surprise birthday dinner for my wife's birthday (6 of us total). This was the first time I've booked a personal chef, so I did not know what to expect. Upon booking Charly for my event, he called to consult with me about putting together a bespoke three-course menu for her special evening. Charly took care of all the details, getting all the supplies, and even printing custom menus for our table for that extra touch. While Charly's preparation and presentation were exceptional and professional, it was his execution that truly blew us away. This is not someone who just cooks for you. Charly has an excellent command of French and Provencal cuisine, and his dishes were superbly presented and stunningly delicious. It was a real treat to have such excellent food and culinary craftsmanship in our own apartment, and I like to think I can cook pretty well! Charly's warmth, professionalism, and dedication to his art as a chef are the reasons we're excited to have him again for a future event. You won't be disappointed!
Chris assisted me with my wedding catering - on top of being such an extremely talented chef, he is so knowledgable about food & catering logistics. I have also eaten at many of the restaurants he has cooked at - amazing! So lucky to know a chef like him.
Bacco Catering was a great choice for our event. We used them for a charity event at our store and they performed incredibly. Our guest were so pleased as many of them asked me " who are the caterers, this food and service is amazing". Thank you Lauren so much for such a great night.
I used Tamara for my engagement party and she was fantastic! I had about 60 people and we started with passed h'ourderves during a cocktail hour in one room (she provided the staff and a bartender). While this happened she was setting up the buffet dinner in another room. She let me know when it was ready and then (timing was flawless) we moved into the second room for dinner. My friends and family raved about the food, which included gluten-free and vegan options as many had dietary restrictions. We had a French theme as I had gotten engaged in France and Tamara worked with me on a French menu, including a delicious chocolate-hazelnut crepe desert with fresh berries. She was totally on-point with timing, presentation, and professional execution, including proactively handling things like insurance with the building so it wasn't a hassle for me. The reason I initially chose her was because she was more reasonable than the other bids I received for caterers in New York but she offered identical services to what they had proposed and she went the extra mile the day of the event. I will definitely be using her again and I would highly recommend her to anyone. I am still receiving compliments on her food and the friendliness/professionalism of her staff.
We had a party in our home for 30 colleagues. Chef Dan arrived exactly on time and brought everything he needed with him. He prepared an array of visually appealing and delectable tasting culinary creations that wowed our guests taste buds and satiated their appetites. The bartender was great and the servers did an impeccable job of constantly bringing Dan's gourmet offerings while being pleasant and unobtrusive. Many caterers provide quantity and some high quality- chef Dan did both at a reasonable price and with a smile on his face. He cooked everything fresh in our kitchen and when he and his staff finished, our kitchen looked as pristine as when he arrived. The party was great fun and a big success. Every one of our guests commented on how fabulous the food was and how outstanding the service. He is our go to guy for any future parties or affairs. kudos and thanks. Mel & Pamela Pratter
We worked with Katherine Fonsella from DeCicco events and cuisine and she was WONDERFUL. We were planning a pre-wedding dinner for about 100 people in the Tarrytown area, but we live in Northern California. We did not know any venues or caterers or suppliers. Katherine helped us find a great, unusual loft venue, arranged all the decor, tables, lighting, and set up the catering from DeCiccos. The staff were excellent, the food was very good, everything went off perfectly. We are so appreciative of all that Katherine did to make our event wonderful!
Adolfo and his team catered my mother's 60th Surprise Birthday Party for 15ppl in her apartment. It was an absolute success!!! the food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. the flavor profiles as each course came out complimented the ones before. it was a cohesive menu that we both worked on preparing. the favorites of the night were the mini grilled cheese with the tomato soup shot and the duck wraps. The mini lobster rolls were tasty and we took the leftover lobster and ate them as lettuce wraps. But everything was delish!! I spoke to many caterers and his level of professionalism and follow up was what truly drew me to his as I knew he could be trusted and cared for this event to be a success as much my sisters and i did. Everyone was so pleased and in awe of the service. As soon as an item was sent out - the napkins were whisked away. My sisters and I were able to enjoy my mother's party due to the prompt attention and efficiency of Adolfo's staff. I would love to hire Adolfo again for all my parties. It's well worth it and I'm so fortunate that I was able to find his services. Thank you for his team for making it so special. My mom was blown away- much success to you!! Thumbtack community - please hire them! You will not be disappointed.
What a pleasure it was to have Joe cater our wedding reception last weekend. We found LCI Caterers here on yelp and checked out his menu. We were instantly drawn to the variety of items represented in his offerings. We didn't want to go with the typical 'Italian' fare of many wedding receptions these days (no offense to those who choose that but we wanted variety). On Joe's menu there was Spanish, Southern, BBQ, Jamaican, and yes, Italian too as well as a zillion other things which is just what we wanted. Joe helped us configure balanced items that worked well together. My fiancé (now husband) and I went to meet Joe for a tasting. OH MY GOSH!!! The food was incredible! His peril was off the hook! So moist and flavorful. The BBQ beef brisket was tender and melted in our mouths. Penne a la vodka - yeah an Italian dish - was incredible- flavored just right and not overly creamy which is just perfect for my taste. We left with our mouths salivating for more. Our wedding day arrived and Joe's crew set everything up beautifully. We went with all the foods at our tasting as well as rice and beans, garlic mashed potatoes, grilled veggies, - oh - and the crab cakes for appetizers with a cilantro aioli - TO DIE FOR!!!!!! Just writing this review has me hungry for more!!! Joe himself showed up with his staff and they all did an amazing job taking care of us and our guests. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the experience provided by Joe's staff. The servers went above and beyond, making sure everyone had what they needed, picking up after guests were done, and being so pleasant and professional the entire time. Joe himself was a real sweetheart from beginning to end, working out our menu, being warm and friendly on the phone as well as in person, and even doing the honors of cutting our wedding cake and figuring out the coffee maker I rented from another company and had no idea how to use! We had a wonderful experience with Joe and his crew and would highly recommend him to anyone who wants tasty food, excellent customer service, and a warm friendly yet professional catering experience. Thumbs up all the way!
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 is amazing! He was so communicative and set an amazing menu from the beginning. His prices are also much more reasonable fair than other caterers I’ve spoken with. We used him for our daughters birthday party, and we had 60 guests. On the day of the event, Chef went above and beyond to ensure he provided a beautiful presentation, delicious food, and professional service. I would highly recommend!
Best experience ever. We needed a bartender for a private birthday party I was organizing for my boss and took a chance on hiring HighLife. Not only did we get a bartender but we got Tyler himself - the owner of HighLife. He was amazing. Our chef we hired from a different company was a disaster and Tyler took it upon himself to help serve the meals, set the tables with wine glasses, pour water/wine throughout dinner, not to mention making the best margaritas on the planet. Extremely reasonable prices with top notch service that is so hard to find these days. Next party I organize I will simply call Tyler. Whether I need a bartender, chef, catering, etc - HighLife will be my only phone call. Thanks for everything!
We have had Oscar cook for us on several occasions. As an overall general statement, I do not hesitate to say that his food is delicious (and my husband is a "foodie"). His ingredients are always fresh and the pride he takes in the kitchen is enviable. He was extremely accomodating to whatever need or desire we had and is flexible in everything from the choice of food, to the amount of money we wanted to spend, to his presence in our home. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Oscar to anyone interested in having a private or personal chef or catering for an occasion. He is skillfull in cooking many different types of dishes and will often surprise you in how delicious and unique he can make ordinary dishes taste out-of-this-world. We will definitely have him back soon.
Our experience with Harvest Specialty Catering and Jason was all that I could ask for. We chose this company for our daughter's barn wedding. Initially, Jason was willing to work with us for a limited portion of our event, something many caterers are NOT willing to do. After time (and a taste testing!) we opted to use him for all but dessert (we had a friend doing the cake.) We so appreciated his flexibility and willingness to work with us. He accommodated us and our changing needs at all points of our journey, even in the midst of his own challenges with equipment issues. We never knew about his difficulties until later, and not from Jason but the venue staff, as he and his crew pulled off a wonderful dinner. Our wedding guests were very complimentary of the food. On every level, we were thrilled with our choice. I would highly recommend this company for your event, whatever it may be.
I recently held a launch event with an invite list of over 50 guests, and I was stressing about a caterer. Everyone I called was either too expensive, didn't have enough dishes to meet the dietary restrictions of my guests, or the menu just didn't look appetizing. I met Sara at a community event in our neighborhood (we both live in Bed Stuy), and I was complaining about how unaffordable and unhealthy the catering options were available to us in our neighborhood. After just one minute of Sara telling me about her private catering service I knew it was the perfect fit. I don't know if it was her genuine passion for healthy eating or her charisma for her work in the community, but I loved working with Sara from start to finish. She even came to the venue and gave me an in person consultation as to what dishes she thought would be best for the event, and included ingredients I told her I could not live without! (avocado please!) The result? Happy guests who could not get enough of Sara's delectable dishes. The vegans, the vegetarians, the pescatarians, gluten free, and of course the carnivores asking me who had curated such wonderful treats! I look forward to working with Sara again. She is definitely my go-to chef for all my catering needs.
Brenda is amazing ! Work within our budget very professional and prompt response. Highly recommended.
I have had the great pleasure of being a customer and guest on several occasions of Cornbread26's catering services. Each time I was blown away by their outstanding customer service, food quality and flavor, and beautiful execution of the event's decor. Claude and Craig work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that their clients don't have to worry about a thing except for enjoying the experience and the food.
Elemental Catering catered a one year birthday party for my twins. They were very professional, worked with me on creating a perfect menu. The food was delicious, and at the end they cleaned after themselves. I would definitely hire Elemental Catering for my next event.
Little Pleasures provided an upfront and honest quote with no hidden service charges like some other caterers. Their professionalism was amazing. I felt at ease while planning my event with them!
