I had the pleasure of working with Chef Ellen on catering my trade association’s annual meeting. Her responsiveness, attention to detail and presentation exceeded my expectations. The menu items received praise from attendees. I would highly recommend to anyone.
NY Catering service prepared and ran my husband's 70th birthday party and everyone who was there thought it was the best party they ever went to that was prepared in someone's home. The food was amazing and the flow of the evening went perfectly. Could not have asked for anything different. Ellen P
My wife had a large international conference in her field here in New York and we decide to invite some of her working colleagues for an evening with wine and some Hors D'Oeuvres. As our UWS apartment is rather small we actually needed to have 2 consecutive evenings with 10-12 guests and a catering for this. Marylyn was a delight to work with - very easy process to handle the various choices, 2 phone calls and few emails and all was set. Blythe and Lisa were absolute delights, they arrived punctually both nights and brought all needed things with them - including the nice variety of food menu items we had selected. They worked in the kitchen (some of the items were warm items) and made sure that we could focus on the guests (and wine pouring :). They also got special recognition from the highly international group of guests for their great preparation of food. I also appreciate the way all was cleaned afterward and the efficient way of collecting all the necessary things they brought, Being already tired late in the evening this is very much appreciated, Hint: The lamb and the zuccinis got special recognition (the latter including me :). Overall a very good experience. Thank you all!
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.
Global Chefz Catering was professional,clean, and organized. I will be calling again!
Tamara Shenkle was fantastic to work with. From start to finish, Tamara professionally brought me through the process of planning our marriage celebration NYC cocktail party. From the delicious menu (the guests raved perfectly bite sized hors d'ourves), cocktails & bar (she handled everything) to the handling of a lovely prosecco toast for fifty of our closest friends. Amoraco's food was fresh, exquisite, the glass and serving ware completely taken care of and the staff gracious, skilled and friendly. Thank you Tamara for catering our party. We and, again, the guests gave you and your team heartfelt compliments. P.S. Thank you for leaving the place so clean - our host appreciated it! I highly recommend Tamara and Amoraco for anyone reading this post.
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.
Adolfo is extremely professional and likable, he listened carefully to our brief and he delivered everything we had asked for. Our brunch menu was perfect in the amount of food, the selection and the presentation. The best part, Adolfo left our kitchen spotlessly clean! Thanks Adolfo, look forward to working with you again.
We had a 50th Anniversary party for our friends in our yard and it was perfect. From the beginning Francesca helped us plan the menu, including taking into account all dietary restrictions, coordinate the tent and all needed party rentals. She answered every question and all the changes needed. They arrived exactly on time the day of the party to set it up the whole evening was perfect, changing some placements and keeping the party going without any break. Francesca and Ashley worked the party, once the setup was complete, and were so perfect. The food was displayed beautifully, they set up the bar as requested and even though we did not ask for service directly to the tables they came around at different times to see what guests needed, especially some older ones. An unexpected very short rainfall had them bring the coffee, tea and desserts to the guests to keep it out of the rain. The cleanup was impressive and perfect, they even washed the kitchen floor at the end! We loved it as did our guests and the food was delicious!!!! Everyone requested leftovers. I have shopped at DeCiccos for years and this will only keep me coming back. Thank you!
I wanted to give a full throated endorsement to Laura and her excellent staff at Sunflowers Catering and Event Planning. My wife and I hired Laura on the good advice of a friend to cater our wedding party in the Brooklyn art district of DUMBO in the art gallery Smack Mellon. We could not be happier. First Laura was incredibly attentive and thorough making multiple site inspections ahead of the wedding and interfacing with the venue manager. Her preplanning and coordination was excellent. Laura runs a super tight ship and her staff were poised and on point. I grew up in the hospitality business on Martha’s Vineyard and I have catered many, many weddings. I know a well oiled machine when I see one and watching the hustle of the staff setting up ahead of the event immediately calmed my frayed wedding day nerves. I knew we were in excellent hands. Now the Food! The food was fantastic. We had a raw bar that people were raving about, the passed appetizers were delicious. It was a great feeling when dinner was served and word began to make it back to us that the guests were very happy and impressed. The cookies we asked for at the end of the night were also especially tasty. Our wedding came off like a charm, it was a great night and we owe a large part of it to Laura. I would recommend Sunflowers Catering without hesitation to anyone with an event to cater. Sincerely, Ryan Matta P.S. It is probably worth mentioning that they left the venue spotless.
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!
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. Thank you Thumbtack for bringing him to us.
We absolutely loved working with T&C Catering for our wedding and would recommend their services to anyone. Carol was very easy to work with, detailed oriented, and her food was great! She helped us leading up to determine what we like. We wanted something different for our wedding guests and decided to have BBQ. Carol and her team prepared an amazing meal that was exactly what we were looking for. The staff were also very attentive and friendly during the wedding. They did a great job making sure our guest were happy and full! Plus they all went above and beyond that day, literally. The venue's elevator broke the day of the wedding and they had to carry all of the food, drinks, and supplies up six flights of stairs. They did this with a great attitude and a smile. That spoke volumes to their dedication to their job. Without T&C Catering we couldn't imagine our day would have been. They helped make our special day unforgettable for our guests, which they still rave about the food. Thank you again for everything! Jamie & Audrey (photos to come soon)
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.
David and the team were extremely helpful and professional in arranging everything and accommodating our needs. Day of Philipp, Chef Albert, and the rest of the catering staff were punctual, extremely on point and were in and out with minimal fuss. All told this was an excellent experience and would love to book them again.
Platter Matters Catering & Staffing is amazing! I hired a bartender Mike through them for a house party, and he arrived early for preparation which was great. My guests really loved Mike as he makes great drinks and talkative. I highly recommend them to everyone. Thanks again! :)
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.
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!
JP catered a party for us of about 40 adults and 20 kids and we had a great experience working with him - highly recommend his services! He was responsive and flexible during the planning phase, able to modify his gameplan day-of when our rooftop venue got rained out :( and prepped and served the food efficiently, beautifully and notably, without needing anything from us as hosts, letting us truly enjoy the party. On top of all that, all the guests loved the food itself and several have inquired about contacting JP for their own events. I’m happy to make those connections because JP is truly a great chef and a consummate professional!
It was an amazing experience having Milt, Janet and their crew as our caterers. They arrived early to set up and be prepared for our guest. The food was AMAZING!!!! I cannot get over their stuffed mushrooms, those delicious little chicken quesadilla, OMG the shrimp cocktail...I can sit here and name every single dish we ordered and tell the world what an amazing experience it was for my taste buds and my guest will say the same. I will continue to work with Studio Event Staffing for all my future events. Not only were they professional, they were very friendly and warm--they have an awesome team put together!!
Jolanta of redpoppy effortlessly prepared and served our fifty guests homemade dishes representing a wide variety of cuisines--classic american, italian and indian, all expertly prepared, seasoned and as beautiful to look at as they tasted.
