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.

Chris and his team were the perfect choice for our event. From our first conversation through execution, the process was seamless and efficient. Chris was always quick to respond and tailored a menu of hors d'oeuvres and drinks that were perfect for the occasion and within our budget. I would absolutely recommend him to others and plan to use NY Catering Service again for our holiday party.

This was our second time collaborating with Bacco for a catered birthday party for 55 people. Because our first experience was so extraordinary, we were immediately at ease this time, knowing that everything would be taken care of and our guests would be happy. Chef Lauren excels in every aspect of catering. Her food is delicious with subtle flavors and creative menu choices. Our guests raved about her mushroom and gruyere bread pudding hors d'oeuvres, as well as a Moroccan-spiced salmon over lentils. There were plenty of leftovers too. Chef Lauren is excellent at helping plan the perfect party. She makes smart suggestions, ones that add quality without needlessly running up the bill. Her servers are very professional and friendly. Her supplier for party rentals (eg, glasses, tables, etc.) was also outstanding. Our kitchen was spotless when she left. Chef Lauren communicates clearly and frequently from Day 1 through the final clean up. She handles everything effortlessly and joyfully, allowing *us* to enjoy the party (and, just as importantly, the weeks leading up to the party). We cannot recommend her highly enough. We look forward to having her and her crew as part of many events for years to come.

Tamara and her staff were wonderful,from beginning to the end of the event. Tamara returned every phone call and email at a lightening speed response. The food and presentation was so well done and delicious. I would highly recommend her services. I hit a home run whenI found Amoraco catering services. My daughter will never forget her 30th birthday party.

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. I definitely recommend Chef Dalessio to everyone and will have him catering my family's parties for years to come!!!

We had such a wonderful experience working with Rich at What's on the Menu. He was super flexible and responsive throughout the whole process, making the planning of our birthday dinner super easy and stress free. The menu was creative and the food was delicious. He made it such a special event- would definitely use him again and recommend him to others!

We were extremely happy with the catering services that Manjar provided for a small cocktail party to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. Adolfo and his team were professional and attentive and went above and beyond to make the occasion special. The passed appetizers were delicious and presented beautifully. We can't thank Adolfo enough for his attention to detail and his personalized service that allowed us to enjoy the party and not have to worry about anything.

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!

I met Erika and savored her cooking during a private week long health retreat in Hudson, NY. Erika's cooking was mouth watering, innovative and used local and mostly organic ingredients. All the participants also lost quite a few pounds that week while not feeling deprived and celebrating food! I strongly recommend Erika for catering, health retreats and teaching ....

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.

May 18, 2012 Chef Monterroso's services were a " 40th " birthday gift to my nephew who lives in New York. I, however, am located in Arizona and had made the arrangements over the telephone. His pleasant tone, accomodating demeanor, warmth and customer service skills are absolutely amazing. He was so intuitive regarding the menu choices and other requests that I knew immediately that he would be my choice. My nephew and his family were totally pleased. He telephoned me the moment Chef Oscar left his home. My nephew said he was totally blown away by the professionalism, warmth, customer service skills, knowledge and overall service. He could not say enough complimentary things about the food preparation, taste and choices. He and his wife are already making plans to contact him for several upcoming occasions. I would definitely recommend him to any one whether in state or out of state. You definitely get MORE than your money's worth. ONE DRAWBACK: I wish I had been there to savor all of the great food about which my nephew raved. LOL

Absolutely incredible! Literally everything about SGS was excellent, the food, service and the strong level of communication and attentiveness. We hired SGS for a 15 person catered birthday dinner, and Stenneth did a fantastic job. Food: DELICIOUS - everyone loved the food, especially they truffle mash potatoes, risotto, Asian glazed salmon, and tuna tartare tobiko. The presentation was also beautiful, there were decorative flowers in the dishes, and everything was arranged very neatly and professionally. Seriously better than several michelin star restaurants and obviously better than my own cooking, haha. Service: Stenneth was incredibly attentive and helpful - walking us through every step of the process from menu creation to logistics coordination to cutlery selection. He was very responsive with a near immediate response time to my inquiries. He was also very diligent and prompt in the food delivery and setup. (My only minor criticism is that the initial menu contained a few spelling errors and was inconsistently formatted - however I do not consider this a downfall at all as I easily just updated the menu format on Word myself, and was also able to customize it a bit) Overall 5/5 highly recommend and will definitely hire again! Thank you SGS!!

I hired Melissa to prepare a birthday dinner at a townhouse we rented in NYC for a girls weekend getaway (13 of us). So glad we went this route instead of going out to dinner! Melissa and her partner were terrific and the dinner was delicious. They prepared a great meal, while we were able to enjoy some wine and laughs in the living/dining room. This was certainly better than being stuck at a table all night, only chatting with the person sitting next to you. Melissa helped make this celebration exactly what we wanted and we will definitely do it again. THANKS, MELISSA!! :)

Absolutely delighted. Sara Elise and her fabulous team catered a birthday brunch for over 50 people. The menu was fresh, creative and delicious. Guests raved over "the best granola I've ever had" and the "amazing root vegetable hash." Setup and service were flawless, warm and friendly. Presentation was lovely right down to the very pretty eco-friendly tableware provided. We felt we totally lucked out by discovering Sara Elise and the responsive care from Ora, Martine and Shawn. Couldn't recommend Harvest & Revel any more highly.

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.
