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!!!

Ellen was instrumental in catering at our home for my wife's birthday event. Food was plentiful, varied and delicious. Ellen worked with our palate, our specific requirements (vegetarian) and home setup to provide an excellent spread for our us and our guests. She came up with creative ideas to add flavor and variety and worked extra hard to provide impeccable service. Both Ellen and her delicious food were stars at the party.

We have had the pleasure to work with Bacco catering a number of times, and in each instance they deliver perfectly in terms of quality of food, service, and attentiveness to client needs. Most importantly, the chef creates delicious food with a warmth and responsiveness that makes it feel like it's a friend in your home. The staff are always responsive, helpful, and savvy enough to know the right balance between making sure guests are served, and not drawing attention to themselves. I would highly recommend Bacco Catering for any special event.

I love Bacco! I called Lauren shortly before my son's communion to inquire about catering lunch for 40. Lauren's suggested menu was perfect and didn't even compare in quality to the other samples I received. The day of the event the food was delivered and set up while we were at church. My guests and I were blown away when we got home to see the food displayed beautifully and it tasted just as great. Perfect luncheon. I can't wait to use Lauren and Bacco again. Everything was just as promised and more!

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.

If you are seeking a true PROFESSIONAL for your event, do not hesitate to hire Rich! 5 stars all the way for this awesome bartender! I hired Rich Stein for my wedding at the Carousel at Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven. Approximately 100 guests and he handled them all with ease, demonstrating the professional he truly is! Totally focused, kept on top of everything! Prior to the event, he was very helpful in assisting me with liquor decisions, among other issues specific to this venue, and answered questions promptly and completely. I had certain liquors set aside for a few certain people, and that went smoothly. I felt totally stress-free knowing he was in charge of everything at the bar. I would not hesitate to hire Rich again, next time, perhaps a catering gig because I hear he is a great chef, as well! Thanks, Rich!

Initially contacted Rich to do the bartending at my 50th birthday party. After discussing my catering plans with Rich, he proposed that he stays in the kitchen and coordinates the food while he brings in additional people to help with the bar and serving the food. I am very happy with Rich in the way he managed the kitchen and the servers. In summary I would say Rich personally did an excellent job and would have no hesitation in recommending him. Rich and his crew cleaned up everything after the party. We only had a minimum amount to do the next day.

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 I’m extremely happy I hired her company because it was worth every penny.

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!

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!

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!

Joe and his team were fantastic. We could not have had the wedding we did within our budget without the dedicated work of Joe and his team. We had over 200 people and Joe had a staff of 8 (which felt like 12) to prepare food for service, serve appetizers, bus tables and serve dinner. They were incredible. The food was excellent and Joe did a tremendous job in an incredibly challenging situation. We did not have a kitchen in our venue, so Joe was forced to make due by cooking ahead of time, transporting foods in temperature controlled containers and reheating onsite. The food quality did not suffer one iota, and Joe worked with us for months in advance of the wedding to design a menu which would respond to the challenges of the venue. People still mention how good the filet was 8 months later. Beyond the quality of the food, Joe is a full service caterer. For a nominal fee (far below any rental quote), Joe provided dinner plates, salad plates and cutlery for all of our guests. Joe also provided chafing dishes and serving instruments which were not available at our venue and which would have been exorbitant had we been forced to rent them from a third party vendor. Having the same person responsible for all of the food related rental items and the catering saved us time and money. Finally, Joe will work with you to make a menu for almost any budget. He understood our cost constraints and worked with us in creative and helpful ways to achieve a delicious menu we were proud to serve while respecting our initial budget. I only gave Joe 5 stars because they don't offer a 6 star review. He is excellent and the best choice available in the New York City area for wedding catering. Thank you Joe!

f despite that it was thanksiving day, and she had her own family, Chef Aless catered my family's special day with superb attention to both the food, which was beyond delicious and plentiful, and presentation. She arrived early with a trolley full of delectable hors d'oeuvres, the best turkey ever baked, and containers full of great accompanying veggies. This was the first time I have ever needed outside catering, but the experience of having Chef Aless was so seamless, and the food was so perfect, that even if I have to invent an occasion,which I will, I know she could handle it with a touch of that marvelous French charm and expertise, and very little interference from me! I'm a cook,specifically a baker. but Chef Aless is a master, and everything was delivered expeditiously and promptly. And with heart... A truly wonderful experience. Thank you so much Alessandra.

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.

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!

Chef catered a large family gathering (24 people with 6 kids) in a home we rented in the hamptons. He and his staff were amazing. They were professional, fun to work with, and easy to work with as well! The food was delicious. He even created a cocktail of "the day" that was a smashing success! (+ he brought a bartender to help) I originally went with Chef Plum because when I put the bid out for the event Chef had the most creative ideas for menu, drinks and was great to talk to on the phone. I knew from the start that he'd be easy to work with. From day 1 to the day of the event, he was amazing. Always responsive, helpful and took a ton off our "plate" as he helped organize rentals, glassware, and a lot of other details. This was an amazing event thanks to chef and his team. I highly recommend him!!

I can't say enough about Chef Plum and his sous chef, Adam. They prepared a 7 course tasting and wine pairing for us and it was absolutely wonderful. Not only was the food delicious, clean, seasonal, local and beautifully plated, Chef's serving of each course was competed with a thorough detailing of the food, how it was prepared, why it was chosen and a lovely description of the wine accompanying it. Our meal with him transcended a simple dinner, and really was an extraordinary experience. We would 150% recommend him to any and all food lovers, those who love to smile and laugh and anyone who seeks to enjoy fine dining in the comforts of their home. We can not wait to have the opportunity to pair with him again. A+++!!!!

Peter and his team were absolutely amazing. Not only was he great at communicating with me prior to the event, but he also offered many delicious options for the menu to ensure there would be something for everyone at my party. The team was on time and very respectful of the staff and the space, putting together a lovely set-up with flowers (!) that made the event feel that much more special. The food and drinks were delicious. My personal favorite were the pulled pork sliders and mojitos, but everyone raved about how delicious all of our appetizers were. Peter even sent a special plate over to me (the host) to ensure I'd have a chance both to eat and sample his delicious menu. I cannot say enough about the friendliness of him and his staff throughout the night. They were just so thoughtful and professional. I would (and will!) absolutely hire Peter and Creative Table Catering again in the future. My friends were also very impressed by him and the value of the services he offered at my event. In a city with innumerable options for caterers, I would highly recommend Peter for any event you have. He made my special night a celebration to remember.

Flawless, beautiful and delicious. We cannot recommend Peter enough! First of all, the food was REALLY good ... I mean Jean-Georges yummy - not just tasty, but unreal good! Secondly, the presentation was visually stunning: striking - and he brought flowers, candles, striking serving platters and each course was served on a different and interesting plate. The execution was fantastic. Peter's charming assistant passed food. It made the entire evening drama free and allowed us to focus on our guests. Pulling the menu together was easy, Peter's suggestions were fantastic and he adapted to our requests without any problem. We had four different guests comment on how good the catering was ... Peter brought five cards and ran out! Last but not least, Peter was a delight to work with .... would we use him again.... without question. Thank you Peter.

For any couple taking on the overwhelming responsibility of planning a wedding themselves, this company successfully provided exceptional off-premise catering along with those special, personal touches desired to ensure a memorable DIY occasion. Laura from Sunflowers Catering helped us through every step of the way. She and her staff prepared an exquisite dining experience that fulfilled the exact culinary vision we desired. Going above and beyond the duties of a caterer, coordinated with the rental company, saved us money wherever possible. When other's tried to steer us in a more conventional direction, she encouraged us to follow through with every quirky, unorthodox idea we put forth to make our dream wedding become reality. The staff was supportive through what might have been a slightly chaotic, customized catering experience and our guests never stopped smiling. My husband and I were uncompromising foodies with unusual requests, unorganized at every moment...and now very satisfied clients! We promise you will be in good hands with Sunflowers Catering.

We utilized Sunflower catering for a baptism reception in our home. Laura, the chef/owner, came to my home to view the layout and we went over a menu that worked for our guests. The night before the event, Laura had an accident and wasn't able to manage the event herself. Still, ever the professional, she had us covered with her team of employees. They even came earlier than planned, so everything would go off without a hitch. Overall, the food was good. I'm a foodie and very particular about how food is executed and presented and while I know this would have been Laura's domain, her replacement did not execute with that same level of detail. That said, the guests were very pleased with the food and the service was amazing. The pepper steak and eggplant rollatini were delicious. I would love the opportunity to work with Laura again with her manning the helm, since I'm sure the items that fell flat, would have been stellar with her finishing touch. Overall, they get a 5 out of 5 on service (the kitchen was spotless when they finished) and a 4 on food.

Laura and Carrie were exactly what I was looking for when planning my cousins perfect bachelorette weekend in Southampton. Laura was so great to work with and detailed oriented in the whole planning process to ensure we were getting exactly what we were looking for as my guests were arriving for the weekend. She took everything I said to heart when helping plan the menu and set up for the evening. Her helper Carrie was the perfect amount of attentiveness allowing my guests and I have a bunch of laughs while still ensuring our glasses and belly's were always full!

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.

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 David provided our family with a memorable Thanksgiving meal that was carefully crafted and perfectly executed. 20 guests, a mix of adults and children, enjoyed classic dishes like turkey and mashed potatoes as well as unique tastes like crab crake. Enough gushing from me... here are the 3 most important things I want future clients to know: 1) Chef David is a supreme professional - Super responsive up to the minute of delivery (and even after the meal), provided high quality product and was a general pleasure to work with. 2) Delicious down to the smallest detail - Not only were the apps, entrees and sides packed with deep flavor but the cranberry sauce and salad dressing received several compliments too. The crab cake was a standout but the entire meal was excellent. 3) Wash, Rinse, Repeat - We viewed catering Thanksgiving as a high stakes gamble. Chef David outperformed on all aspects and we plan to use his expertise again in the future.

Outstanding hands on demonstration and lesson for my 11 year old daughters and friends. Not only did they learn to cook the meal they enjoyed, they learned proper knife skills, cutting a chicken, importance of fresh ingredients vs. store bought, sauce prep and reduction technique, homemade salad dressing, and presentation of the meal. We all enjoyed Chef's simple educational approach as well as his lively sense of humor and calm command in the kitchen! Absolutely look forward to cooking with him again as well as using his catering expertise for at home celebrations.

Oh my where do I start. I hired 3R's Catering & Eventd for a family meet & greet, for my wedding head table and chapel decor. The family dinner was a beautiful start to a memorable weekend. The food was delicious the Mac and cheese was scrumptious. The candy table was breathtaking it was all I could ask for and more. My family was speechless. Next day the wedding chapel was pretty and simple but all we needed because my wife and I were the focal points. The head table was the prettiest setup I've ever seen. It made us feel like we were the Queens of the Night. Simply Beautiful. Regina you have a talent that will take you sooo many places. I appreciate all the hard work and thought you put into making my weekend extra special.

It was a pleasure to have 3R's Catering prepare so many delicious eats & treats at my recent Lifestyle, Hair & Fashion Expo! The attendees really enjoyed it, especially the Buffalo chicken sliders & banana pudding! I look forward to working with you again soon! Thanks!

3R's Catering did a magnificent job for my daughter's 7th birthday. Her work was beautiful. I would definitely hire her again for other events.

BOOK'EM NOW!...... LIKE RIGHT NOW!!! Hands down thee best catering company I have ever experienced! I used RSVP as the owner catered a friend's engagement party in February. I have worked in the restaurant industry for several years and could not believe the attention to detail that their wait staff displayed. They were on point with everything and my glass never went empty. The whole staff was very nice and very professional. Especially the bartender . I chatted it up with him for a bit, made really good drinks and was a real friendly guy. Now, the food was outstanding! I really enjoyed the gorgonzola stuffed babybella mushrooms amongst all the other delicious dishes. I had a chance to meet the owner Renee after the dinner while everyone was dancing. Not over exaggerating at all, they were probably the kindest people I every met. SUPER COOL, totally humble, and they even gave me food to take home. I would recommend RSVP to anybody and everybody that wants their party to be a success!

Renee couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. She went above and beyond what I ever expected, and allowed me to enjoy my own party free of stress. I would certainly hire her again or recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.

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.

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.
