"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!
Chuck was very helpful throughout our process, always very responsive and accommodating. I of course was a little worried because this was a lunch for our entire company, but Chuck made the process seamless. He was prompt on arrival and set things up very quickly. I did feel badly because our meeting ran a bit over and he was waiting for me to come out and pay the remainder of the invoice. Even with that though, Chuck was very kind and friendly. I did notice after he left that the Assorted Cookies I had ordered were not there. I emailed him and he let me know that they were out and with all the hustle and bustle, he had forgotten to take it off the invoice. I think I would have preferred to have been made aware of the cookies being out beforehand, that way we could have substituted with something else, like the cannoli tray. I did receive the refund a couple hours later, though! Otherwise, it was a very pleasant, easy experience and I would absolutely recommend Every Detail to friends and family.
My husband and I hired Chef Chris to treat my (at the time future) in-laws to a relaxing dinner in their home as our wedding gift to them. Chris worked with them to create their ultimate menu and the results were nothing less than superb! They raved about the food, Chef Chris's skill in the kitchen, and how wonderful he was to work with. We would hire him again in a New York minute!
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.
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 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!
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.
This was a special dinner for two. Everything from start to finish was perfection. Steve (our chef) was friendly, talented, and thoughtful. I can't recommend this experience highly enough.
I had to hire a chef to come for a small bday dinner for my boyfriend. I needed one on short notice and Nate was ready and able to make this night fantastic! He provided some wonderful options for the menu, showed up on time, and executed several dishes perfectly. He and his assistant were polished and polite. All was provided for a reasonable price. Our whole party had a wonderful time and can't wait to have him back again.
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!
Just paid a deposit to book Melissa for my event next weekend. Yay!!!!!! This is the 1st time I have hired a professional chef to cater for our monthly dinner party and had a lot of questions and concerns before going into it. Melissa has been extremely prompt, professional and patient in addressing all of my issues and I am really looking forward to working with her. I am confident my event will be a great success and I will be sure to post some more reviews/photos thereafter.
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.
We had a wonderful experience with Chef Via Melissa!! Everything was delicious and it was a night to remember! We would highly recommend Melissa to all our friends!
The food was AMAZING!! I'm not easy to please and the food was above and beyond what I could have hoped for! Everything was decadent and delicious and Chef Dave went the extra mile! I couldn't say which dish was my favorite because they were all amazing... one better than the next! Definitely using him for every party and my guests couldn't stop raving about the food! A MUST USE!!
Chef Stef is a professional Culinary Chef that teaches you step by step how to prepare different recipes. Every two weeks it's a different menu. He provides you with all the food to cook and all the utensils and dishes you need to prepare a wonderful meal. It's always a fun group and we love cooking together. His knowledge about the different products, where there from, where you can buy them and how healthy they are, is very educational. He sometimes pairs the recipes you have prepared with a tasting of different wines or beers of different regions depending on which recipe you are cooking that day. Chef Stef also provides you with containers to take whatever Recipes you have cooked home for your family and children to enjoy. I highly recommend going to Chef Stef cooking classes.
It was my pleasure to work with Chef Joy. I felt special and appreciated. Her expertise goes above and beyond! Chef Joy takes the pressure out of trying to create your wedding cake....she bares all the weight and created a cake that was so exquisite that I did not want to cut it; much less eat it. THE CAKE WAS DELICIOUS!!!!!!!OMG! I did not do a tasting only because I was stressed for time. Chef Joy took the pressure off of me, I did not worry about a thing. My fiance and myself just left it in her hands and we were not disappointed. Her cake flavor combinations tickles your senses and the texture was perfect. Chef Joy has gained a client for Life. I truly mean that....thank heavens I finally found a true pastry Chef who does everything and is a keeper!!!!!!!
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!
Chef was on time and catered to the specific needs of my guests and I. The food was amazing and the experience was wonderful. He also cleaned as he went along. My guest is also a chef and he was pleased. It is an experience I would do again.
Delicious professionally prepared and cooked food delivered to our door! Our family receives breakfast, lunch and dinner and we can't believe we didn't do this a long time ago. Since I'm not able to make our meals anymore we struggled for a while until we spoke to Maison Prive Chefs. They understand our dietary needs and clearly strive to help people. I asked to change one thing and it was done immediately. They make sure we are happy with the food and service all the time. Maison Prive is truly a blessing for us and I would recommend it to everyone!
Every single dishes was just delicious! Thank's so much for making my husband's surprise party memorable Chef Perrin. She took time to work with my budget and really came through for us last minute.
