"This was the best food!" EVERYONE Ellen catered to for our dinner last evening could not get over how delicious their meals were. There are not enough words of gratitude I can share with her or any of you who are considering to hire her for your event. Ellen is concise when reaching out with her menus, her menus are organized by cuisine (making it easy to discuss), her response time is excellent, there are no hidden last minute charges, she shows up at the agreed time, is able to work in a challenging kitchen (we are in an office with a no flame policy and she made do with sternos), her food presentation is attractive and appetizing, and she is an absolute gem to work with. I have been in the food and beverage industry for 20 years, worked with many many chefs and Ellen is the real deal. Our group was falling behind and dinner service was delayed by close to 45 minutes. She made sure the main courses were still hot and of the best integrity, which is difficult to do when serving poultry and fish. Everything was seasoned beautifully with a variety of flavors with each course. Truly, the whole experience was magical and I can't wait to work with her again. Thank you so much Ellen!

We have used Bacco for three events now and I look forward to having them at our next party! Our guests rave about the delicious food and Chef Lauren and her staff could not be better to work with. I know that I do not have to worry about a thing when I hire Bacco. I would highly recommend this catering company.

Chef Charly is an amazing and talented chef. From the food presentation, menu selection to the taste buds all was perfect at my dinner. Having traveled around the world and eaten in many Michelin-starred restaurants and the best restaurants in NY, Chef Charly is at that level of talent and professionalism. I strongly recommend him for small or large group dinners. Looking forward to many more dinners with Chef Charly.

AMORACO CATERING DID AN EXCEPTIONAL JOB FOR MY PARTY! I HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF HAVING THIS COMPANY CATER TO THE GUESTS OF ABOUT 40-45 @MY HUSBAND'S BIRTHDAY PARTY. AMORACO,WHOSE EXECUTIVE CHEF IS TAMARA SHENKLE PRESENTED THE OCCASION WITH PROFESSIONALISM, COURTESY, AND, ABOVE ALL-- MOUTH-CATERING CUISINE! AMORACO TOOK CARE OF EVERYTHING: TASTEFUL DECO' (MATCH FOR THE OCCASION), TABLE LININGS, CHINA, CUTLERY ETC.BIRTHDAY CAKE WAS WELL PREPARED AND DECORATED! THE FOOD WAS VERY FRESH, DELECTABLE AND DELICATE. THE MINI LOBSTER ROLLS, CRAB CAKES, MUSHROOM WONTONS WITH BLACK TRUFFLES ARE STILL A HUGE BUZZ AMONG SOME OF MY GUESTS. FRESH HOMEMADE GOURMET DOES REALLY MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN A WELL PREPARED CUISINE. WITH AN EXECUTIVE CHEF LIKE TAMARA, I WILL STRONGLY RECOMMEND AMORACO CATERING. MY HUSBAND WAS VERY HAPPY AND CONTENT.

Chef Wayne hands down provided my " now " Fiance and I with one of the most fantastic meals we have ever had. The seared steak was cooked to perfection and the onion jam on top of it, wow, feLt like I could eat it with anything. So delicious! Chef was also generous enough to record me proposing to my girlfriend. We ended the night with our families surprises my girlfriend and the chef had dessert for 10 and champagne already prepared just waiting for the cue.5 stars around the board. Can't wait to have another meal!

Chef Dan was wonderful. We discussed dishes, presentation, and delivery method prior to the event. Preparing dinner for a large group can be challenging but Chef Dan & Brianna executed everything perfectly and in a timely manner. My guests and I loved the food. Chef Dan was very professional. I highly recommend him!

Chef Melissa and her team provided private chef services for lunch for 15 of my private clients across a two-day retreat event in New York City. Even though it was solely lunch, it was three courses which she started with a custom beverage. She provided glasses, flatware and dinnerware. She also provided a printed menu for each person for each day's menu. A full on experience. My clients LOVED her presence. I would like to also mention, two days before the event, the venue I booked had a fire and we had to move at the last minute. Chef Melissa took it all in stride, changed the menu slightly and kept right on going - a testimony to her professionalism and experience. If you want a positive experience, pay for the best.

I cannot begin to express my utmost appreciation and satisfaction for Chef Michel and Festive Food Caterers. It was such a wonderful experience working with them. Chef Michel was not only highly responsive, and professional to work with, but he is passionate, creative, and extremely sensitive to the needs of his client. He loves what he does and it shows! My now husband and I were really excited once we started working with Michel and knew we were in great hands the whole way through. There was snow storm on the day of our wedding and Chef Michel took the time to call us and reassure that everything was going to be alright. For a nervous bride, that meant so much. His staff were extremely professional during the reception, and ALL the food was delicious, well prepared and served fantastically. People are still telling us how much they enjoyed the food. Chef Michel was a joy and I fully encourage anyone to work with him. You shall not be disappointed. Thank you so much Chef!

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!

5 + Stars. Peter is an exceptional talented and skilled chef. His food and presentation are impeccable and he is lovely to work with. He prepared a unique Texas themed menu and the Texans said it was the best brisket they've ever had--that is a true compliment. Thank you Peter--Susan C.

JP catered a party for us of about 40 adults and 20 kids and we had a great experience working with him - highly recommend his services! He was responsive and flexible during the planning phase, able to modify his gameplan day-of when our rooftop venue got rained out :( and prepped and served the food efficiently, beautifully and notably, without needing anything from us as hosts, letting us truly enjoy the party. On top of all that, all the guests loved the food itself and several have inquired about contacting JP for their own events. I’m happy to make those connections because JP is truly a great chef and a consummate professional!

Excellent experience. Chef Nirva cooked a three course meal, Mediterranean inspired, for my birthday for myself and 9 guests. She made the hummus from scratch and the lamb meatballs were my favorite. The main course was a light yet flavorful rosemary chicken, followed by a chocolate dessert. Chef not only presented the dishes just like at a restaurant, but she explained to everyone how she made the dishes. Thanks so much for making my birthday a great experience!

After vetting several chefs, I knew once I spoke to Germaine that she was the one I would hire. Her positive energy, patience, and level of professionalism were amazing. She held a private tasting for my husband and I at her home and it was clear how much time she put into not just preparing a great meal, but the overall presentation. Needless to stay my event was amazing, the food was delicious as was the service. I would highly recommend Germaine and will most certainly be hiring her again for any of my future events!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
