I picked Cornbread26 2 days prior for a last minute Mother’s Day Dinner and I’m So happy I did! I could not have asked for anything more. Claude and Craig did an extraordinary job. I was a little skeptical picking a caterer just from searching online and I had a combination of concerns. My family members are diabetic and have high blood pressure so cooking with certain ingredients was huge for me while keeping the flavor for others. I also had children coming to join and wasn’t sure if the food would be kid friendly but the food exceeded my expectations along with my family. Everything was delicious and tasty. Their food was the highlight of the night. I would definitely recommend this company and look forward to working with them for my future events.
Charly provided a wonderful catered lunch in our photo studio. Everyone was satisfied and he was very accommodating.
We recently returned from a family and friends vacation in Costa Rica. We rented a beautiful 5 bedroom home (for 1 week), just off the 17th tee at the Four Seasons resort in Papagayo. We flew in the Bad Boy Chef, Chris Nirshel from New York City, to dazzle us with exotic dishes and flavors. Dazzled we were. It was obvious that Chris knew his way around the kitchen, and just watching Chris do his thing was like watching a gourmet ballet. From breakfast, to delectable snacks, lunch and dinner, Chris was the star of our Costa Rican vacation. Chris did all the shopping for the local foods, spices, fruits and vegetables and was just plane fun to hang out with. Living up to his bad boy reputation, Chis went Four Wheeling on some dangerous mountain, flipped his Four Wheeler, and came back looking like he had gone 14 rounds with Iron Mike Tyson... broken toe, ribs and covered in dirt and lacerations... but the delights from the kitchen never stopped! We are going to rename Chris The Terminator Chef. So folks, my money is on this bad boy chef as Chris made our vacation one we will not forget, ever, unless we get Alzheimer's. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!
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!
Maria was extremely helpful in selecting options for a Baptism lunch. The food arrived on time, was beautifully plated and delicious. Will definitely use them again!
Working with Chef Dave was great from beginning to end. He helped me throw a 50th birthday lunch. I have done many events and am all about the details and he was just the same. He came to my apartment prior to the event to see my kitchen, the set up, and discussed the rentals we would need. Together, we agreed on a menu, staff, set up, and all other details for the event. He was very easy to communicate with prior to the event, and was just as excited as I was about the party! He was on time and cost conscious. His food was delicious. Throughout the party, my guests kept going in the kitchen to get to know him and thank him. He also prepared a killer sangria for me in advance of the party which was perfectly marinated by the time we had to serve it to my guests. It was a huge hit! Our menu included everything from lamb chops to caesar salad wraps to cheesecake to of course his famous mozarella sushi. He also helped me obtain a hostess and bartender who were both so professional and gracious and all smiles all day! This was definitely a party to be remembered. Between the amazing food of Chef Dave, great service, a surprise rapper, belly dancer, singer, and a DJ on the 49th floor with amazing views of Manhattan, who wouldn't have a great time!? I definitely look forward to working with Chef Dave again. Melissa
At the end of the meal, all of our guests applauded. I think that's the best way to sum it up. Delicious food and we didn't lift a finger!
I had my daughter's bridal shower at Thyme. It was outstanding. The food and service was perfect. The timing of lunch was just right. All my guests could not stop talking about how nice the event was. It was the easiest party I have held.
I cannot begin to express my utmost appreciation and satisfaction for Chef Michel and Festive Food Caterers. It was such a wonderful experience working with them. Chef Michel was not only highly responsive, and professional to work with, but he is passionate, creative, and extremely sensitive to the needs of his client. He loves what he does and it shows! My now husband and I were really excited once we started working with Michel and knew we were in great hands the whole way through. There was snow storm on the day of our wedding and Chef Michel took the time to call us and reassure that everything was going to be alright. For a nervous bride, that meant so much. His staff were extremely professional during the reception, and ALL the food was delicious, well prepared and served fantastically. People are still telling us how much they enjoyed the food. Chef Michel was a joy and I fully encourage anyone to work with him. You shall not be disappointed. Thank you so much Chef!
Chef Monterrosso provided a delicious lunch for a group of hungry military personnel. Thank you Chef for a well prepared meal!
It was a pleasure working with Sunflowers caterers. The staff couldnt have been more friendly. All my guest said the food was wonderful. I will be sure and used them again for my next party! Thank you Sunflowers!
Delicious professionally prepared and cooked food delivered to our door! Our family receives breakfast, lunch and dinner and we can't believe we didn't do this a long time ago. Since I'm not able to make our meals anymore we struggled for a while until we spoke to Maison Prive Chefs. They understand our dietary needs and clearly strive to help people. I asked to change one thing and it was done immediately. They make sure we are happy with the food and service all the time. Maison Prive is truly a blessing for us and I would recommend it to everyone!
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.
I had a great experience using Chef Aless (for both a dinner and a catered event for 30 people). I will definitely be hiring her in the future!
Food was delicious! Wayne was great from the beginning to the end of the planning and actual dinner. His food and service were outstanding. He pays attention to detail and delivered exactly what I requested. We had a 5 star restaurant experience right in our dining room.
