The food was Fabulous. The caterer was late and didn't tell me that she doesn't provide heating trays or any utensils etc. I didn't ask about those things because all the other caterers supply them and I just assumed she would as well. Otherwise, Ellen is a very nice person and did a great job. I was happy with the food and service.

The venue for my birthday party had limited kitchen space for the caterers to work with, but Chuck and his staff were able to be creative and make some last minute adjustments to make it all go smoothly nevertheless. My guests enjoyed the hors d'oeuvres selection. Thanks EDC!

Charly came to my apartment to prepare a surprise birthday dinner for my wife's birthday (6 of us total). This was the first time I've booked a personal chef, so I did not know what to expect. Upon booking Charly for my event, he called to consult with me about putting together a bespoke three-course menu for her special evening. Charly took care of all the details, getting all the supplies, and even printing custom menus for our table for that extra touch. While Charly's preparation and presentation were exceptional and professional, it was his execution that truly blew us away. This is not someone who just cooks for you. Charly has an excellent command of French and Provencal cuisine, and his dishes were superbly presented and stunningly delicious. It was a real treat to have such excellent food and culinary craftsmanship in our own apartment, and I like to think I can cook pretty well! Charly's warmth, professionalism, and dedication to his art as a chef are the reasons we're excited to have him again for a future event. You won't be disappointed!

Chris assisted me with my wedding catering - on top of being such an extremely talented chef, he is so knowledgable about food & catering logistics. I have also eaten at many of the restaurants he has cooked at - amazing! So lucky to know a chef like 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 us—and 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 d’hoeuvres 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.

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

We are so happy to have chosen Manjar to cater our New Year's Day party. Experience with a variety of caterers over the years has shown how hard it can be to find someone who is responsive during the planning process and provides excellent food and service. Everything we had on our menu was delicious! Hosting a group of well-traveled, adventurous eaters, having highly flavorful dishes, aesthetically presented, is always a goal. Thanks to Adolpho and his staff that was exactly what we got. We would order everything again but I must say that everyone agreed that the baby lamb chops were the best they ever had (and this group has had a lot!), and the tuna ceviche was exceptional. But I don't want to slight the other dishes (especially the superb mushroom risotto and vegetable "towers" which were beautiful...I could go on and on). I was impressed from the beginning with our first exchanges through Thumbtack. Adolpho mentioned doing a walk-through months before to see our physical set-up. Besides the hour I'm sure it took him to get here, we spent another hour talking and making final plans. I never felt rushed; he is a great listener. He asked questions that I wouldn't have considered and the party was all the better for that. We felt totally pampered and relaxed throughout the evening. The kitchen was left immaculate. Adolpho captures what is, to me, the best combination of professionalism and warmth. He is simply delightful to work with, as are his staff. We are so grateful to have found him and look forward to our next party with Manjar. Deborah Corbett Montclair, New Jersey

Chef Martin is amazing! He was so communicative and set an amazing menu from the beginning. His prices are also much more reasonable fair than other caterers I’ve spoken with. We used him for our daughters birthday party, and we had 60 guests. On the day of the event, Chef went above and beyond to ensure he provided a beautiful presentation, delicious food, and professional service. I would highly recommend!

We hired Tyler to operate a small bar at our office on the final evening of our annual hackathon. The service was great, Jason who he sent over was an excellent bartender, and the transaction was seamless and easy! They even created custom drinks for us, which was a great surprise. Highly recommend this team and looking forward to using them again!

This is the first time that I've personally worked with a caterer for a small event (15 people) and it couldn't have gone better. Chef Stenneth was very detailed when presenting me with catering options. He worked within my budget and was open to any suggestions and alterations I had. He was communicative and responsive to all my inquiries and delivered everything punctually. A true professional! The food itself was AMAZING! The guests at my event all specifically pointed out how much they enjoyed the food! Chef Stenneth's culinary skills easily rival top restaurants in the city and I feel like I've found a hidden gem with him. I would easily recommend him to anyone looking for a caterer for any party size!

Chef Dave just catered my wedding last Sunday 3.26.17 in NYC. First and foremost- Chef Dave is a super nice guy and very accommodating. I originally thought we would only have 40 guest, but we were wrong and ended up with 70 guest. Chef was totally flexible and adjusted the menu accordingly. He was very responsive and coordinated with my event planner seamlessly. The food was amazing! We also had so much food! Our guest had second and thirds... they loved it too. The meatballs were out of this world, the chocolate flourless torte was a crowd pleaser especially for my GF friends! Chef Dave was so easy to work with and gave me so much peace of mind! I am so grateful that I was able to connect with him via Thumbtack.

I was overwhelmed with the demands and costs of a wedding and did not know how to proceed with catering services for the wedding. The costs for 50-60 people were exceedingly high and my budget was suffering because of it. I had made several calls to different caterers but to no avail. Then I tried Thumbtack.com and was very fortunate enough to speak with Yvonne Chambers from Taste of Our Legacy Caterers. She was very patient, reliable, understanding and resilient when it came to addressing the wedding menu. She held a great rapport with me and provided me with sublime customer service. She was also very negotiable with my budget and instead of turning me down like the other caterers; she worked with me until we came up with a price that was fitting. There are not too many caterers like her; she is one of a kind! On my wedding day Saturday, September 27, 2014, the food was delicious! My husband and I enjoyed the delectable arrangements of food. All of my wedding guests were commenting on how great the food tasted. Our wedding menu had a variety of dishes and even had a vegetarian dish as well (pasta primavera) which was a huge hit! If anyone out there is looking for a caterer who will meet your needs according to your budget and menu – Taste of Our Legacy Caterers is the one for you! Pamela

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.

Nancy catered a bridal shower brunch at my house for my daughter. She was knowledgeable, helpful and accommodating, - and provided great food, too. It was pricey, but it was worth it. And the portions were extremely generous, in addition.
