There's only praise for a job well done by Ellen and her staff. The day I met Ellen she not only helped with planning out the perfect menu but it turns out she's got quite an eye for fashion and helped me pick out a beautiful dress and suit for my fiance. I saw she had talents in many other areas than running a booming catering business. She looked after and anticipated every detail that could have caused a problem and addressed it before hand. The main comment I heard through the day was "where did you find the caterer, her food is amazing." That was often from some very discerning guests that truly knew food. The Salmon was absolutely delicious and we had chosen a mushroom lasagna that was out of this world and the same can be said for the salads. I loved the little individual fruit cups also. Ellen runs her kitchen like a pro, shows up early and all you have to do is let her do her thing. Truly outstanding!!!

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.

Charly was brilliant! My husband surprised me with a private chef for our first anniversary dinner and Charly did not disappoint. He made delicious food in our tiny Brooklyn apartment. Already making plans to hire him again.

What a treat to find Chef Lauren and Bacco catering. This was our first experience with Lauren and her delightful staff but we are already coming up with excuses to hire them again. Chef Lauren worked with us to personalize the menu for my partner’s milestone birthday celebration and provided a full service dinner for 40 guests in our apartment with compelling warmth, confidence, and the utmost professionalism. The food was mouthwatering from the first tantalizing passed hors d'oeuvres all the way to the desserts which, by the way, included triple chocolate brownies with raspberries on the side. Everything was perfectly flavored; clearly prepared with great care and the finest ingredients; and presented beautifully. We are over the moon and our guests haven’t stopped talking about the flavorful food and wonderful service. On top of that, our kitchen was left sparkling clean and there was an awesome stash of irresistible leftovers waiting for us in the fridge to help keep the memory of an already unforgettable and delicious evening alive for just a little while longer. Professional, on time, everything was as promised and beyond.

Tamara and her team were absolutely spectacular! Everything was perfect, from the food to the service to every little detail we hadn't thought of but Tamara had. People raved about the food and the mixed cocktails all night long and kept asking where we found such an incredible catering team! I will look back on our engagement party as one of the best nights of my life, and I know a large part of that experience is how incredible Tamara and her team made the evening!! Cannot recommend enough!

I placed a catering order for my Conference Championship Football party this year through DeCicco's and could not be happier. I met with their event planner, Francesca, who I found to be very responsive, attentive and professional. Francesca noted any concerns I had, was quick to quote me a price for the event, and I couldn't find one complaint once the order was fulfilled. She truly is a credit to this organization, and I will definitely be ordering from them again!

Joe and his staff catered my Brooklyn wedding. The food was delicious! My guests can't stop talking about the wonderful variety and quality of the cocktail hour and the dinner. LCI Caterers is beyond fairly priced and Joe even got me in touch with a great rental company for my china and glassware. The staff was amaizingly attentive. My guests' glasses were never empty and they did a wonderful job of bussing tables. They even did the room flip between ceremony and reception and cleaned up and broke down tables at the end of the night even though they weren't the ones who brought the tables. The champagne was perfeclty timed out for toasting and everything on the catering end ran smoothly and was extremely organized. I can't rave about Joe and his amazing staff enough! They helped me have the wedding of my dreams!

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 ....

A successful summer in Southampton is a tall order and finding a great chef isn't easy. I was introduced to Chef Aless in 2016 and it was a blessing. She helped make this one of the best years to date. Her menus are consistently delicious and elegant. We have had the pleasure of her being in charge of the kitchen for 20 and 300 guests and she maintains the same cheerful disposition even when curveballs are thrown at her. I highly recommend her for all your catering needs. Lori N House Manager,Southampton NY

Working with Chef Martin was wonderful! Finding him was our first foray into Thumbtack - and it turned out marvelously! Having read the MANY 5-star reviews for Chef Martin/Mirabell Catering we were dubious... could he be THAT good? The answer is a resounding yes! We needed a caterer for an entirely gluten-free 4-hour open house for roughly 70 people - kids and adults. Chef Martin was swift in his response to our request for a caterer. He articulated a clear understanding of the menu needs, and how to avoid cross contamination - a BIG deal when you have celiac disease and have to live gluten free. He developed a menu offering a wide array of finger foods at a very reasonable price. By phone, we found him to be a gentleman - a rarity these days. He was professional and organized, calm and cool, affable and charming. (I had a feeling that our friends would want to hang out in the kitchen with Chef Martin and I was right!) Chef Martin arrived promptly and brought everything he needed. As he settled in - even putting us at ease as we hurried to finish readying for our guests - his waitstaff person arrived. From there, Chef Martin turned out hours of incredibly tasty, plentiful, finger food for a large and hungry crowd. Truly, everyone raved about the food throughout the party and after. And Chef Martin WAS as charming in person as he had been by phone. The kitchen was packed! Now here is the totally unexpected thing that happened with Chef Martin: whenever I walked through the kitchen in need of something, before I could say much of anything at all, it would be taken care of or I'd find what I had come in search of in my hand. Chef Martin knows events! His presence just made everything easier. I hope we will have the pleasure of working with him again. My husband and I are proud to say that we have held some great parties, but we enjoyed this party in our home more than any other. It was delightful to spend time with our guests - and to eat! It was a joy to not worry about the cooking or having to hustle about cleaning up throughout or face a terrible mess after. Chef Martin and his gracious and professional staff made our holiday open house easy for us, and a marvelously memorable event for our guests. If you need a personal chef/ caterer, Chef Martin is the man you want.

Everything was perfect. Alana showed up early and even though she had to park in a fire hydrant stayed until I arrived to greet me and make sure everything looked great. Catering was for private concert for 26 Upper East Side parents and everyone was blown away by the food and even commented on how great it looked and how good she did incorporating some vegetarian options. Will definitely reach out to Alana in the future for events both intimate and large.

Chef Dave was a pleasure to work with. He had a huge assortment of menu items to choose from and all of the ones we picked for our cocktail hour were delicious. He was very responsive and professional. He worked with us to make sure we got all we needed and that everything was set and ready to go on our big day. His work definitely helped to alleviate some of the stress of wedding planning. My only regret is that we didn't book him for our reception as well. We were doing a traditional Chinese wedding and the second venue already had their own catering. Otherwise, I'm sure Chef Dave would've also aced it there. Highly recommend.

I was overwhelmed with the demands and costs of a wedding and did not know how to proceed with catering services for the wedding. The costs for 50-60 people were exceedingly high and my budget was suffering because of it. I had made several calls to different caterers but to no avail. Then I tried Thumbtack.com and was very fortunate enough to speak with Yvonne Chambers from Taste of Our Legacy Caterers. She was very patient, reliable, understanding and resilient when it came to addressing the wedding menu. She held a great rapport with me and provided me with sublime customer service. She was also very negotiable with my budget and instead of turning me down like the other caterers; she worked with me until we came up with a price that was fitting. There are not too many caterers like her; she is one of a kind! On my wedding day Saturday, September 27, 2014, the food was delicious! My husband and I enjoyed the delectable arrangements of food. All of my wedding guests were commenting on how great the food tasted. Our wedding menu had a variety of dishes and even had a vegetarian dish as well (pasta primavera) which was a huge hit! If anyone out there is looking for a caterer who will meet your needs according to your budget and menu – Taste of Our Legacy Caterers is the one for you! Pamela

Last summer 2016, I had a small intimate brunch for close friends. Cornbread26, were in charge of catering and serving. My friends enjoyed a wonderful vegan spread that consisted of ; crab sliders, macaroni and cheese , and a mouth watering vegetable melody !!! Their signature guava sangria was there to seal this perfect afternoon with friends. Their services was top notch, professional and satisfying and I will be using Cornbread26, this summer for my annual brunch event.
