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!
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.
I don’t usually dole out 5 star ratings but it is well deserved here! Eleni was a monumental part of planning my son’s first birthday party. It was a football themed party for approximately 100 people. Despite some challenges with vendors, Eleni out did herself with planning and decorating the space, in addition to making and setting up the items for the dessert table! Everyone loved it and I received so many compliments! Eleni was a pleasure to work with, she was super responsive and always kept in touch with updates (no matter what time of the day or night) I am especially grateful to have had her by my side throughout the event to give me gentle reminders to keep us on schedule with my specific timeline! Eleni’s event planning services are reasonable and I would highly recommend her for any event planning, decorating and dessert table needs! I cannot thank her enough for the excellent job! Shami
We could not have asked for a better experience. Tyler was extremely attentive prior to our event and fielded my (many) questions with diligence and patience. The day of event, he went above and beyond all expectations. He went so far as to bring little signs, candles and flower petals to make the dessert arrangement more beautiful than I could have imagined. Him and Josh, the second bartender, were incredibly personable with our guests and made sure everyone was happy and taken care of. HighLife takes absolutely all of the stress out of planning a big party at a very reasonable price. I would recommend Tyler and his team to anyone.
Awesome job you guys. Everything delivered on time and the food was delicious. You two are a pleasure to work with and will work with you again!
It was my wife's birthday dinner, and kids and I asked Chef Chris to come help us cook. Kids (ages 9.5 and 8) had a blast learning from Chef Chris! We had wonderful time and great memories were made. The kids were so excited, Chef Chris was very hands on - guiding them and keeping the excitement up, and getting them to cook several pizzas, soup, and a yummy dessert (including home made whipped cream). Highly recommend as a fun family bonding time that includes learning how to make a delicious meal and then enjoying the meal together!
I found Bacco Caterers on Thumbtack. I was impressed with the five stars and the reviews, so I contacted Chef Lauren to begin to see if she was the caterer for usand was she ever! Joyce and I wanted to include our friends and family in our marriage anniversary celebration in our Brooklyn home. We are novice Open House hosts and Lauren advised us re details we would never have thought of, including in our menu selections. Her staff, chef Amanda and sous chef Laura, created freshly made hors dhoeuvres in our kitchen as the party occurred, superb finger food that was varied, interesting, and delicious! People, including us, loved it. The servers Karen, Tony, and Kevin, and bartender Elroy were unobtrusively attentive and friendly to our guests. Our party took place on two floors and the yard, and the staff kept the food appearing and the empty glasses disappearing with seeming effortlessness. Many guests commented on how comfortable they made everyone feel, contributing to the general sense of joyousness. In spite of our request for no gifts, or perhaps because of it, many of our 50 guests brought flowers. As soon as I was handed the bouquets, Tony would appear and would arrange them in vases I had directed him to when flowers first arrived. I was free during the whole party to visit with my friends and family. I, who am not a party-person, enjoyed myself fully during this celebration, and I am grateful to Chef Lauren and her staff for the many ways (including a fantastic clean-up) they helped make that possible.

Chef David was absolutely fabulous at my dinner party of 6 people. Everyone loved the food from the appetizers all the way to the dessert. He shopped, cooked, served, explained each dish and cleaned up. It was wonderful to host a party and not have to do anything but enjoy my guests. I will absolutely use him again and highly recommend him.
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!
Couldn't have asked for better help at a small dinner party last night. He jumped in to take over the prep work when I was scrambling to finish getting ready for our guests, was a pro behind the bar, set up a great buffet dinner, added little extra touches to jazz up dessert, and then left a clean kitchen behind. Highly recommend Rich and plan to use him again in the future!
My 60th Birthday Party at Thyme exceeded my expectations. First, the room was the perfect size for my party of 50. We had the lower level of the restaurant to ourselves, and my guests enjoyed drinking and mingling near the bar and on the outdoor deck. It was perfect for good conversation, allowing people to meet or catch up. The pass-around food was delicious--especially the lamb chops, mini crab cakes and brie tarts. The dinner got rave reviews by all. The seated meal allowed for intimate tables of 4 to 9 guests. I heard positive feedback about all of the entries, but in particular the filet mignon. It was truly one of the best steaks I have had in recent memory. Great quality meat and cooked to perfection. Many, many people said the exact same thing. I think we were all surprised that such outstanding food was served to such a large group at the same time. To top it off, the service was outstanding. Pam and Nancy planned and ran a great party. I would not hesitate to recommend Thyme to anyone who is planning a party.
Chef Michel worked with us to design a "Latin Flair" menu that incorporated traditional selections with unique flavors and pairings. The steak fajitas were delicious, and a favorite for the crowd. We also thoroughly enjoyed the cake, customized with our Company colors/theme. Festive Food Caterers provided the full set-up (buffet servers, warmers, serving utensils, even disposable dinnerware for the diners) and was present to explain what was in a particular dish or replenish servers when empty. From planning all the way to teardown, Chef Michel made our corporate holiday party a delight to plan.
We hosted an in home birthday dinner evening for 10. Oscar arrived early and it felt like they weren't even there. They had all of their necessary materials, serving items etc. My son wanted to watch and they were really nice about that. My husband wanted to discuss wine pairings and Oscar was so good at discussing the options. Dinner knocked it out of the park. We dined on carrot ginger soup, octopus salad, crab stuffed some, and a decadent dessert. We served a decadent meal to meet my husbands desire for his birthday dinner and it was perfection. My 3 and 5 yr old participated and the soup and Octopus disappeared in seconds. The entire menu was more than we discussed and surpassed our expectations. Will definitely hire Oscar again!
Jennifer has been extremely responsive and accommodating in fulfilling my individual needs/wants. The meals are delicious and the right portion size, very fresh. Well done!!
Laura and her team provided an amazing Rehearsal Dinner at my home. Her staff was punctual and very friendly! The food was delicious. Laura provided exactly what I had requested. Everything was perfect from set up, to butler style cocktail hour and dinner, to dessert and clean up. Highly recommend Sunflowers Catering.
