I am so glad that my husband and I decided to work with Chef Ellen for our wedding party. So many things about our experience were great: the food presentation was awesome and she took a lot of care to make sure it matched our aesthetic; Ellen's staff was super pro and worked well in a venue with no kitchen; Ellen was very responsive in her communication and I felt well taken care of. And most importantly, the FOOD was delicious! Would happily recommend Renegade Caterers to anyone.
Chris catered a dinner party at my apartment and everything was top notch. He arrived promptly, had enough time to get organized before the guests arrived, and looked very professional. The presentation of the food was as delicious as it tasted. My friend helped organize the menu and every course was more delicious than the next. I look forward to having him caterer more frequently, as well as teach cooking classes. Chris' professionalism and attentiveness was incredible. Thank you again for a wonderful evening!
Epic BBQ Wedding Reception The full menu and catering service of Just Hors D'Oeuvres goes way beyond the appetizers. With their vast selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts, its hard to imagine a combination which cannot more than please the most demanding of guests. Their grilled lamb, skirt steak and beef tenderloin exceeded high quality expectations and only unsolicited complements were received from many of the guests. The entire staff worked tirelessly for eight hours serving have passed Hors douerves, creating inventive mixed drinks, grilling and organizing the delicious buffet and desserts. The caterers are focused and busy with many events both large and small so just keep this in mind when trying to determine menu selection and coordinating with the various other vendors working your event
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 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.

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.
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.
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!
We had a party in our home for 30 colleagues. Chef Dan arrived exactly on time and brought everything he needed with him. He prepared an array of visually appealing and delectable tasting culinary creations that wowed our guests taste buds and satiated their appetites. The bartender was great and the servers did an impeccable job of constantly bringing Dan's gourmet offerings while being pleasant and unobtrusive. Many caterers provide quantity and some high quality- chef Dan did both at a reasonable price and with a smile on his face. He cooked everything fresh in our kitchen and when he and his staff finished, our kitchen looked as pristine as when he arrived. The party was great fun and a big success. Every one of our guests commented on how fabulous the food was and how outstanding the service. He is our go to guy for any future parties or affairs. kudos and thanks. Mel & Pamela Pratter
Great Caterers, great food, great setup, easy to work with.
My man Adolfo is awesome, awesome, and awesome! We had him cater our wedding on July 7, 2018. He was super considerate from the beginning. We wanted something Asian, Mexican, as well as American. Adolfo was able to come up with a menu that fulfills all these expectations and are very reasonably priced. After a few email and phone exchanges, he offered us to do a free tasting! The tasting was terrific. Whenever we cannot decide between two dishes, Adolfo offered us to do half and half for our buffet dinner. After we paid the deposit, Adolfo stopped by our venue twice to check it carefully in order to get prepared for our big day. On the wedding day, everything went smoothly and all our guests are extremely satisfied with the food, especially my aunt who is extremely picky :) Adolfo also decorated the food nicely. Food names were written on cute chalkboards :) Waitresses from Adolfo's team are also super considerate by serving my wife and I at the sweetheart table. My wife and I recommend Adolfo wholeheartedly. We especially love his hors d'oeuvres: peking duck roll ups, beef summer rolls, beef taco, and mini pizza! We felt we did not have enough of his food and really want to hire him for all our future events.
We hired Nate and his team to cater our backyard wedding party for 60 guests. They did a phenomenal job! We don't know whether we were happier with the excellent food or the superior service! We received rave reviews about the food from guests. Also, Nate and his team were proactive in helping us with set up as soon as they arrived on site and were right on time with everything: appetizers, followed by full dinner buffet, and then the cake (they even decorated and setup our cake table without any direction, beautifully). Throughout the event, Nate personally brought me and the groom plates of food, since we were so busy chatting with guests we hadn't tried any of the appetizers. Nate organized the flow of the tables for guests to approach the dinner buffet, without any instruction from us, so we didn't have to manage any of those details. Such a pro! We'd hire him again in a heartbeat!
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 Stenneth Grant and his business partner Shanique Walker lent their exquisite culinary and catering talents to our wedding to glittering effect. We could not have been happier with their service and the sumptuous spread they prepared for us and our guests at the dinner reception. The menu was a thoughtfully curated mix of African-American, Caribbean, and Asian inspired cuisine, with options for both non-vegetarians and vegetarians. Not only was the food flavorful and delicious, it was also beautifully garnished and presented. Our guests raved about every single dish and were practically falling over themselves to grab seconds. Not surprisingly, several of them have asked for Stenneth and Shanique's contact information and plan to hire them for their own upcoming events. It's true what they say: word-of-mouth is the best recommendation; and these satisfied guests were singing Stenneth and Shanique's praises. To top it all off, the two exude utter professionalism as well as genuine warmth and passion about what they do. Although we contacted them somewhat late in the planning process to cater our wedding, they easily accommodated us, even putting together a free tasting on relatively short notice. They were punctual in delivering the food and their set up was speedy and seamless. All in all, it was an unqualified pleasure working with Stenneth and Shainique. We're still savoring the memories of their excellent cuisine and service. I hope we'll have occasion to hire them again. It hasn't been a week since our wedding and one of our guests already has hired them to cater an event--and on short notice to boot. How's that for validation! You can't go wrong with this excellent team! Thanks, Stenneth and Shanique! You're the best!
For our 25-guest Thanksgiving dinner (buffet-style), Peter was terrific, and his assistant, Monika, was too. The menu included interesting, well-received, and healthful variations on thanksgiving classics along with a lovely set of finger-food sized appetizers. Everyone enjoyed the upbeat and attentive service and the food itself. We, the hosts, enjoyed a well-planned, well-executed, hassle-free gathering. We were somewhat hesitant to engage someone who we found on the Internet, and because of the late date, we did not check additional references beyond those on Thumbtack. As it turned out, everything (including pricing) was exactly as promised. I would recommend Creative Table without hesitation. Thank you Peter and thank you Thumbtack!
I hired Platter Matters Catering for my 40th Birthday Party. Ivett did a phenomenal job planning the entire event! She took care of all the rentals and flower arrangements, too. Bernadett helped me create a custom menu(many allergies in the family). The staff was very friendly and professional. All of my guests raved about their food and service. My kitchen was left spottless at the end of the event. I highly recommend them!! Emily Westport, CT
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.
I recently hired Cornbread26 to catered a cocktail party for 50 people. I was so impressed with food and overall service. They were able to meet all my needs helping make my event a true success. Thank you Cornbread26! Alan Kempske
Clarendon cuisines did my wedding reception last June. It was outdoors. Everything was perfect. Cocktail hour was food stations and it looked amazing. the chef did these hand carved fruit displays which I did not know he was going to do and it was a hit with my guests. Dinner was buffet and the food tasted amazing. I received great feedback from my guests. I'm so happy I used him.
John Paul was an excellent caterer for my daughter’s outdoor college graduation party. I contracted him only 7 days before the event and he suggested a lovely, light summer menu that my guests thoroughly enjoyed. The food was prepared with love, had a great presentation and was delicious. We had an abundant amount of food that was kept warm and fresh throughout the evening. John Paul was kind, prompt and extremely professional as were his staff of two. I highly recommend John Paul and wish him all the best in his future endeavors. Ps. I will hire him again!
I threw a catered birthday party, and upon signing up with Thumbtack, Brooklyn Kitchen got back to me in the hour. Throughout the entire process, their responsiveness was always immediate and thorough, anytime I had a question, and we were even able to set up a call to discuss the catering. The food was delivered promptly and ready to present/serve, friends raved about the wings at the party and the NEXT DAY. Highly recommend.
