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.
We recently returned from a family and friends vacation in Costa Rica. We rented a beautiful 5 bedroom home (for 1 week), just off the 17th tee at the Four Seasons resort in Papagayo. We flew in the Bad Boy Chef, Chris Nirshel from New York City, to dazzle us with exotic dishes and flavors. Dazzled we were. It was obvious that Chris knew his way around the kitchen, and just watching Chris do his thing was like watching a gourmet ballet. From breakfast, to delectable snacks, lunch and dinner, Chris was the star of our Costa Rican vacation. Chris did all the shopping for the local foods, spices, fruits and vegetables and was just plane fun to hang out with. Living up to his bad boy reputation, Chis went Four Wheeling on some dangerous mountain, flipped his Four Wheeler, and came back looking like he had gone 14 rounds with Iron Mike Tyson... broken toe, ribs and covered in dirt and lacerations... but the delights from the kitchen never stopped! We are going to rename Chris The Terminator Chef. So folks, my money is on this bad boy chef as Chris made our vacation one we will not forget, ever, unless we get Alzheimer's. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!
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.

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.
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.
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!
Great Caterers, great food, great setup, easy to work with.
Adolfo and his team catered my mother's 60th Surprise Birthday Party for 15ppl in her apartment. It was an absolute success!!! the food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. the flavor profiles as each course came out complimented the ones before. it was a cohesive menu that we both worked on preparing. the favorites of the night were the mini grilled cheese with the tomato soup shot and the duck wraps. The mini lobster rolls were tasty and we took the leftover lobster and ate them as lettuce wraps. But everything was delish!! I spoke to many caterers and his level of professionalism and follow up was what truly drew me to his as I knew he could be trusted and cared for this event to be a success as much my sisters and i did. Everyone was so pleased and in awe of the service. As soon as an item was sent out - the napkins were whisked away. My sisters and I were able to enjoy my mother's party due to the prompt attention and efficiency of Adolfo's staff. I would love to hire Adolfo again for all my parties. It's well worth it and I'm so fortunate that I was able to find his services. Thank you for his team for making it so special. My mom was blown away- much success to you!! Thumbtack community - please hire them! You will not be disappointed.
What a pleasure it was to have Joe cater our wedding reception last weekend. We found LCI Caterers here on yelp and checked out his menu. We were instantly drawn to the variety of items represented in his offerings. We didn't want to go with the typical 'Italian' fare of many wedding receptions these days (no offense to those who choose that but we wanted variety). On Joe's menu there was Spanish, Southern, BBQ, Jamaican, and yes, Italian too as well as a zillion other things which is just what we wanted. Joe helped us configure balanced items that worked well together. My fiancé (now husband) and I went to meet Joe for a tasting. OH MY GOSH!!! The food was incredible! His peril was off the hook! So moist and flavorful. The BBQ beef brisket was tender and melted in our mouths. Penne a la vodka - yeah an Italian dish - was incredible- flavored just right and not overly creamy which is just perfect for my taste. We left with our mouths salivating for more. Our wedding day arrived and Joe's crew set everything up beautifully. We went with all the foods at our tasting as well as rice and beans, garlic mashed potatoes, grilled veggies, - oh - and the crab cakes for appetizers with a cilantro aioli - TO DIE FOR!!!!!! Just writing this review has me hungry for more!!! Joe himself showed up with his staff and they all did an amazing job taking care of us and our guests. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the experience provided by Joe's staff. The servers went above and beyond, making sure everyone had what they needed, picking up after guests were done, and being so pleasant and professional the entire time. Joe himself was a real sweetheart from beginning to end, working out our menu, being warm and friendly on the phone as well as in person, and even doing the honors of cutting our wedding cake and figuring out the coffee maker I rented from another company and had no idea how to use! We had a wonderful experience with Joe and his crew and would highly recommend him to anyone who wants tasty food, excellent customer service, and a warm friendly yet professional catering experience. Thumbs up all the way!
Erika's versatility is fantastic, ranging from classic gourmet meals, to special diets, to everyday healthy, home-cooked meals. We had the luxury of hiring her for two weeks to cook daily meals for our family while teaching our three teenage boys basic skills in the kitchen. They loved it! She also prepared a scrumptious menu and cooked for our large Christmas celebration with extended family. We cannot sing her praises enough and will be hiring Erika again for future parties and daily meals for our family.
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!
HighLife Productions planned a cooking experience team building event for my department. We prepared a cocktail and a dish and were later seated to enjoy the meal we prepared! We had a great time!
Peter and his team were absolutely amazing. Not only was he great at communicating with me prior to the event, but he also offered many delicious options for the menu to ensure there would be something for everyone at my party. The team was on time and very respectful of the staff and the space, putting together a lovely set-up with flowers (!) that made the event feel that much more special. The food and drinks were delicious. My personal favorite were the pulled pork sliders and mojitos, but everyone raved about how delicious all of our appetizers were. Peter even sent a special plate over to me (the host) to ensure I'd have a chance both to eat and sample his delicious menu. I cannot say enough about the friendliness of him and his staff throughout the night. They were just so thoughtful and professional. I would (and will!) absolutely hire Peter and Creative Table Catering again in the future. My friends were also very impressed by him and the value of the services he offered at my event. In a city with innumerable options for caterers, I would highly recommend Peter for any event you have. He made my special night a celebration to remember.
It was a pleasure working with Sunflowers caterers. The staff couldnt have been more friendly. All my guest said the food was wonderful. I will be sure and used them again for my next party! Thank you Sunflowers!
Chef Oscar and his staff were outstanding. They pulled off dinner for 30 in a private home with the guests mingling around in the kitchen, which is no small feat. We are already booking him for our next event!
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!!
BSK catered our three-day meeting, providing us with breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks. The food was delicious--fresh, nourishing and beautiful. Sara Elise was a joy to work with--flexible, prompt, and professional. I would definitely work with BSK again.
Last summer 2016, I had a small intimate brunch for close friends. Cornbread26, were in charge of catering and serving. My friends enjoyed a wonderful vegan spread that consisted of ; crab sliders, macaroni and cheese , and a mouth watering vegetable melody !!! Their signature guava sangria was there to seal this perfect afternoon with friends. Their services was top notch, professional and satisfying and I will be using Cornbread26, this summer for my annual brunch event.
Larry catered for a 400 person event for us at very short notice. He came and gave us a tasting to agree menu in advance, coped brilliantly when we upped our numbers, and on the day was highly organised, delivering fresh Colson pastries for our breakfast and a great lunch. Everyone commented on our food saying it was some of the best conference food they had tasted. We would definitely use Larry's team again and wish them great success.
We had our baby shower this past weekend at Thyme and they were fantastic! It was the best baby shower I have ever been to (and it was mine!). We maxed out the first floor at close to 65 people and I couldn't believe how organized and professional they were, without being cold and cookie-cutter with service. Everyone raved about the food, service, and view. What really impressed me was when my friend show up, true to form, an hour and a half late - just after everyone had finished eating. I was shocked when the waitress came over and happily offered him a plate! They brought it out super fast and he was able to eat. Thyme was so wonderful. I can't wait to go back for brunch/dinner and I will recommend it to anyone that needs a venue for any kind of gathering.
Little Pleasures provided an upfront and honest quote with no hidden service charges like some other caterers. Their professionalism was amazing. I felt at ease while planning my event with them!
