We hired Ellen to serve heavy apps to 25 guests for a 40th birthday party. We absolutely recommend Ellen 110%!! She responded immediately, we were able to explain what we wanted to do and the type of food we wanted and she helped us create a menu. Her food was INCREDIBLE, flavorful, and well-balanced. Our guests were floored that we were able to arrange all of this so quickly. Ellen was so professional and fun to have chatting with guests as she prepped the food. She even wrote the birthday boy's name on one of the plates with the dips to make it extra celebratory. I wanted every recipe she had for all of the appetizers and we snuck some away from guests so we could eat them again the next day! THANK YOU for making the birthday party so fun, Ellen!
Chuck is AMAZING!!! I held a 50th birthday party at my home last Saturday evening, and I'm still receiving compliments from the guests - mostly raving about the food. Chuck was like a magician in my kitchen, cooking and pulling out of his hat an amazing glazed salmon dish, chicken francese that guests couldn't get enough of, and rolled flank steak stuffed with spinach and feta (WOW- my favorite!) --- all fresh and delicious!! Chuck looked polished and professional, was very polite and accomodating, and handled 'every detail' beautifully. Without a doubt, I plan on doing business with him again. Thank you Chuck!!
Just Hors D'Oeuvres catered my birthday party at an Art Studio in New Jersey. The food was absolutely delicious. The spread was tasty and well-prepared, each item plated and served with timeliness, and those attending us were funny and engaging, attentive and helpful. I could not have asked for a more wonderful experience!
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
I was looking for a caterer for my birthday party, a cocktail party with passed hors d'oeuvres for 35 people in my NYC apartment. I found Lauren (Bacco Catering) here on thumbtack, and decided to give her a call. I liked her immediately, and hiring her company turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made! Lauren was extremely professional and responsive throughout the entire process. She described her services accurately and was very patient and flexible while we decided on the menu and everything else. She was the only one of 4 caterers I spoke to who was willing to do a site visit prior to the party, which was very important to me. Her company is very service oriented, and it's obvious that she treats all of her clients VERY well whether its a big or small function. She delivered exactly what she promised, and my party was outstanding! Her food was delicious and beautifully presented. She put together an outstanding team for my party--they were EXTREMELY attentive to all of my guests, who are still talking about them! No one had an empty glass for long, and they were so polite and professional and operated seamlessly and efficiently, in a small space too. They cleaned up very well and left my apartment in excellent condition. Lauren and Bacco catering exceeded my expectations in every way. She is a true professional, and I would definitely hire Lauren/Bacco Catering again for future parties. I recommend them HIGHLY to anyone looking for a caterer!
Tamara and her team recently catered my sister's 30th Birthday Party. No only was the food out of this world but her team was extremely courteous and professional. It was an all around great experience!
50th Birthday party. Easy to schedule. Great menu options, Great Food. Nice people, a pleasure to work with.
We had a small wedding celebration catered by DeCicco and Sons and it was a great experience from beginning to end. From the first text I received with a quote it was clear that they are incredibly professional and easy to communicate with. On top of the great customer service the food was very delicious and everyone raved about the taste and how well they accommodated for dietary restrictions. I would recommend them in a heartbeat and am so happy we found them through thumbtack.
We catered from Manjar for my husband's 40th birthday party and I was so glad to have found them. The food was delicious and arrived hot and on time. Adolfo was very professional and willing to work with us to fit our needs. We would definitely work with him again for future events.
Chef Erika is amazing! I hosted a dinner party for 12 friends this week,,,, Chef Erika's recipes were so delicious and beautiful,,, She went the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect! Erika is a lovely person, who took the time to plan a wonderful menu with me,,,I loved my experience and will call her back for my next party! I feel very lucky to have met her,,, Thank you Chef Erika! Terri
We booked Martin for my wife's 50th Birthday Party. We couldn't have been happier. He was on time, the food was hot and delicious. Everything was as we had discussed. Many of my guests commented on Martin's outstanding food and service.
I was desperately looking for somebody to help with my daughter's 21st birthday party and only had two days to organize the entire thing. I posted a request on Thumbtack and Tyler (as well as other providers) contacted me. Based on what I read about the different options I selected Tyler's company, and I am very happy I did. He was simply outstanding. Within a few hours he came up with a menu of cocktails (named after my daughter), he took care of all the logistics (including insurance), and recruited the necessary personnel to cater the party. My daughter said that it was a memorable experience and the quality of the service was top notch. Both my daughter and I would recommend Tyler's services without any reservation.
Chef Michel put together a wonderful buffet meal for my mother's 80th birthday party. The food was excellent, the service was professional and Chef Michel was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him for any catered event you are planning.
My husband and I hosted an intimate birthday dinner party for our daughter, her boyfriend and guest visiting from Belgium and a couple of close friends. Each of them enjoyed the salmon and lamb chops, the presentation of the appetizers and salad was great. We had a great experience with Chef Aless. We would definitely consider her again for future events. Leila and Gerhard Mueller
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!! :)
Peter was a godsend for our birthday party for 70. He's calm, confident, efficient and reassuring. He's also a terrific chef and a charming host behind the serving table. I recommend him most highly!
It was a catered birthday party at a hall and unfortunately it was a snowy evening but the food was still delivered on time. I was impressed from the very beginning, from the large restaurant sized napkins to the upscale knives and forks which are the same size as your dinner (as opposed to lunch) utensils. I cannot find enough superlatives to describe the food. For appetizers we had sauteed shrimp and cocktail meatballs. The shrimp were simply wonderful, and the meatballs were beefy and substantive, they were not mushy with filler as I have tasted from other caterers. (I am not normally a big meatball fan [personal preference] but I loved these.)The entrees were fried chicken cutlets - OMG- unbelievably flavorful and perfectly seasoned, and pepper steak - tender, tasty and with a gravy that you wanted to get the last drop. One side was Spanish Rice, every grain was separate and distinct and the texture was perfect. The other side was baked macaroni and cheese - outstanding! Again, the texture was perfect and it was cheesy throughout. This was REAL baked macaroni and cheese as opposed to the saucy versions which make me think of the stove-top varieties. This reminded me of my mother's and grandmothers macaroni and cheese and they were the best. T & C Catering's serving allotments are very, very generous. My guests feasted on this food and gave rave reviews. I had looked at other caterers and I was not happy with their limited selections so I turned to the internet and stumbled upon Thumbtack, and from them I learned of T & C, a real gem of a find. My event was two counties away so don't be afraid if its not "local." T & C helped give me the 60th birthday party that I had always envisioned. I would use T & C again, in a heartbeat. And their pricing is excellent - What's not to love.
Chef David did a great job for my daughter's birthday party. All dishes were nicely presented and delicious. The portion was great. We'll definitely order from him again.
They catered my Christmas party in Las Vegas. No detail was left untouched. Most importantly, the food was so absolutely delicious.
I hired JP for a birthday dinner for my husband - he cooked a beautiful 5-course dinner for 9 people. The food was delicious and exactly what I was looking for. Everyone loved it!
I can't begin to say how pleased I was with the food!!!! Everything from the appetizers to the desserts was amazing!!! I loved the customer service. Ms. Darlene took special care in my event. Made me feel like I was the only one being catered at the time. I must say that Harvest Caterers will be my go for any event I need catered.
