Ellen, was a lot of fun to work with. We planned a cocktail party for 40-50 for my 45th Bday at the very last minute. She made over 500 pcs of appetizers, created a custom dish (which was delicous) at my request, and helped me plan the cocktails to be served. The upshot is the party was a success, the food was a hit and Ellen and her bartender/server Josh added to the party as I have an open kitchen. I would definitely work with her again and recommend her to friends.
Was a small 6 person dinner party, the food was great! Would do it again!
Charly well exceeded our high expectations! I surprised my husband by hiring Charly to cook a multi course meal for our anniversary. The menu he planned was delicious, creative, perfectly plated, and visually stunning. He showed up at our home perfectly organized, poised, and professional w most courses partially prepared and left a few hours later with two very impressed, happy, sated clients and our kitchen spotlessly clean. Charly also happens to be a very charming, nice guy in addition to being a fantastic fine foods chef. We would love to hire him again for another special event or dinner party.
I hired chef Chris for my husband birthday party dinner for 18 persons! Everything was more than perfect! Amazing food, great service, professionalism, adapted easily to all the requests
Lauren and her team did a cocktail party for 50 people in our apartment. They were super professional, food was excellent, and all enjoyed. Five star experience!
Tamara catered an in-store cocktail party for 70 people/ 2.5 hours. We were very impressed with all aspects of the booking and service. She gave us a fantastic menu to choose from and worked within our budget and wants even going above and beyond by providing additional menu options we did not request. Tamara was able to work in a small space and the entire event was seamless - I highly recommend Tamara for your catering needs.
I’m not one to write reviews but I feel compelled to given my overwhelmingly positive experience with Rich. I hired Rich to bartend and serve/clean for a 16-person dinner party. He also assisted the chef prepare a 16-person dinner and a 30-person lunch the subsequent day. His drinks were exceptional and I was very impressed with his professionalism and punctuality. All of my guests were talking about how amazing the drinks were (yet low calories!). The chef also had extremely positive things to say about working with Rich. I will definitely be hiring Rich for my next event.
We worked with Katherine Fonsella from DeCicco events and cuisine and she was WONDERFUL. We were planning a pre-wedding dinner for about 100 people in the Tarrytown area, but we live in Northern California. We did not know any venues or caterers or suppliers. Katherine helped us find a great, unusual loft venue, arranged all the decor, tables, lighting, and set up the catering from DeCiccos. The staff were excellent, the food was very good, everything went off perfectly. We are so appreciative of all that Katherine did to make our event wonderful!
I contacted Adolfo Silverio of Manjar Boutique Catering to help me with a cocktail party for 80 people last weekend. Because I was planning from a distant city, I was understandably nervous about getting everything arranged and accounted for. From the very first email, Adolfo put my fears to rest. He was very professional, answered all of my questions and made suggestions of things I had not even thought of. He did two walk throughs of the venue beforehand, suggested furniture arrangement, and had everything planned before the night of the party. The party itself was a breeze for me--the food was unique and delicious, the staff was right on top of things (as hostess, the staff made sure my wine glass stayed full--I never had to excuse myself to go to the bar), and everything flowed smoothly. The whole experience was exceptional, and the best part was Adolfo's timely communication--if he said he would phone me at 5 pm, the phone rang at 5 pm. All my emails were answered promptly, and as I stated before, this all went a long way towards making me feel like the party would be a great success--and it was!

We had such a fabulous experience with Chef Alice and all of her crew. They were professional, punctual and personable. The food was outstanding! This was a corporate Cocktail party for my husbands Company and it could not have gone smoother. Thank you Chef Aless!!!!
We had a great cocktail party. The staff of High life was on time, professional and very friendly.
We cannot begin to explain what a great Caterer this is. We were having a problem finding a caterer for our Holiday Party. Laura came to our rescue! Her staff was amazing and the food, OMG! I have never seen so many people go back for so many seconds! Her staff is attentive, personable and efficient. Laura is an amazing chef with great ideas and the skills to go along with it. Our guests could not compliment the entire staff enough. I will use them again in a heartbeat - and so should anyone else looking to hire a caterer. BTW - go with the crepe station!
Peter and his professional staff made the event painless and enjoyable (at-home cocktail party wedding reception for 68 people). They worked efficiently behind the scenes during the event so I never had to worry about food and beverage serving. Beautiful presentation, impeccable service with a smile, and most importantly - tasty! They set up 4 hours in advance and cleaned up our home exactly as they found it.
Chef Oscar is amazing. He served a delicious 4 course meal for our private dinner party. He was easy to work with, adjusted on the fly as numbers changed, and is a true professional. Highly recommended
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.

I also feel the price was very fair and the quality was very good !
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
Patrick is a great bartender and a pleasure to have at a party. Great guy, great service, highly recommend!
A perfect venue for an intimate cocktail party. Great service, great food, perfect space. Pam, the Catering Manager, made the planning experience stress free. Guests were extremely complimentary ... Couldn't have been more pleased!
It was an amazing experience having Milt, Janet and their crew as our caterers. They arrived early to set up and be prepared for our guest. The food was AMAZING!!!! I cannot get over their stuffed mushrooms, those delicious little chicken quesadilla, OMG the shrimp cocktail...I can sit here and name every single dish we ordered and tell the world what an amazing experience it was for my taste buds and my guest will say the same. I will continue to work with Studio Event Staffing for all my future events. Not only were they professional, they were very friendly and warm--they have an awesome team put together!!
