We hired Ellen to cook dinner for 14 of us for my moms 60th birthday. The food was amazing, and everyone was extremely satisfied- from the more adventurous eaters in the group to those who don't like to step outside of their comfort zone (although they did and were very happy with what they tried!) Ellen prepared a fish and a lamb option for the main course, as well as sides, a salad, several appetizers (we had decided on 5 apps, and she brought a few extra options), and dessert (also brought an extra dessert). She made it very easy to choose a menu, provided a ton of different options, and was easy to work with. The kitchen looked cleaner when she left than when she arrived, too! Everything was absolutely delicious.
We hired Every Detail Catering for a 60th Birthday dinner party that included 19 people. Chuck, Maria and Brenda were great! The food and service were excellent. I highly recommend them!
Perfect! I requested catering services very last minute since my previous caterer canceled and Chef chris came to my rescue! He was so helpful and accommodating and I felt relieved the second I spoke with him. The event was flawless and It was a blessing in disguise that the previous caterer canceled because I got to experience NY Catering Service. Can’t wait to do this again. Thanks!!
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.
This was our second time collaborating with Bacco for a catered birthday party for 55 people. Because our first experience was so extraordinary, we were immediately at ease this time, knowing that everything would be taken care of and our guests would be happy. Chef Lauren excels in every aspect of catering. Her food is delicious with subtle flavors and creative menu choices. Our guests raved about her mushroom and gruyere bread pudding hors d'oeuvres, as well as a Moroccan-spiced salmon over lentils. There were plenty of leftovers too. Chef Lauren is excellent at helping plan the perfect party. She makes smart suggestions, ones that add quality without needlessly running up the bill. Her servers are very professional and friendly. Her supplier for party rentals (eg, glasses, tables, etc.) was also outstanding. Our kitchen was spotless when she left. Chef Lauren communicates clearly and frequently from Day 1 through the final clean up. She handles everything effortlessly and joyfully, allowing *us* to enjoy the party (and, just as importantly, the weeks leading up to the party). We cannot recommend her highly enough. We look forward to having her and her crew as part of many events for years to come.
Tamara and her staff were wonderful,from beginning to the end of the event. Tamara returned every phone call and email at a lightening speed response. The food and presentation was so well done and delicious. I would highly recommend her services. I hit a home run whenI found Amoraco catering services. My daughter will never forget her 30th birthday party.
Chef Wayne Clarke and his crew catered my birthday party it was great recommend him to who ever want use his service food was great .. It was a great day he is a great chef
Daniel Dalessio is a very impressive chef. He made a three-course meal consisting of Caesar salad, lobster ravioli, and a Crème brûlée for my friends and I. Needless to say, we expected the food to be good, but it completely blew us away!! The ingredients were very fresh and the food was prepared perfectly. I definitely recommend Chef Dalessio to everyone and will have him catering my family's parties for years to come!!!
Dear Luisa, Just wanted to let you know that the Shower was a huge success. I received many compliments on the food choice and everything was delicious. Your staff was absolutely wonderful, they went up and beyond to make this event run smoothly. I love Francesca she did an amazing job. I would definitely refer your catering service to everyone I know and would definitely use you for all other events in the future.
We were extremely happy with the catering services that Manjar provided for a small cocktail party to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. Adolfo and his team were professional and attentive and went above and beyond to make the occasion special. The passed appetizers were delicious and presented beautifully. We can't thank Adolfo enough for his attention to detail and his personalized service that allowed us to enjoy the party and not have to worry about anything.
Provided great catering service under last minute pressure! Will definitely use them for future events.
I couldn't have been happier with my experience with Alana at Most Wanted Chef. She created a wonderful menu for my dinner party in honor of my mother's 70th birthday. The food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. She was incredibly professional, friendly and made everything look effortless. It was truly a pleasure to work with her and I look forward to using her again soon. She makes entertaining at home incredibly easy, graceful and fun. I would definitely recommend her for your next party.
Kulinary Kings provided services for a birthday party, food was great and the staff were patient and courteous. Thank you for helping make my birthday a successful 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!!
Peter & the Creative Table team are really great to work with. Their food, presentation, and service are top notch. They are easy to work with, professional, and get the job done- what more could you ask for. It was our second time using them to cater our holiday party, and would recommend them to anyone to use for catering and party needs! -Mary D. Marketing Manager, Financial District, NYC
I hired Melissa to prepare a birthday dinner at a townhouse we rented in NYC for a girls weekend getaway (13 of us). So glad we went this route instead of going out to dinner! Melissa and her partner were terrific and the dinner was delicious. They prepared a great meal, while we were able to enjoy some wine and laughs in the living/dining room. This was certainly better than being stuck at a table all night, only chatting with the person sitting next to you. Melissa helped make this celebration exactly what we wanted and we will definitely do it again. THANKS, MELISSA!! :)
It was a catered birthday party at a hall and unfortunately it was a snowy evening but the food was still delivered on time. I was impressed from the very beginning, from the large restaurant sized napkins to the upscale knives and forks which are the same size as your dinner (as opposed to lunch) utensils. I cannot find enough superlatives to describe the food. For appetizers we had sauteed shrimp and cocktail meatballs. The shrimp were simply wonderful, and the meatballs were beefy and substantive, they were not mushy with filler as I have tasted from other caterers. (I am not normally a big meatball fan [personal preference] but I loved these.)The entrees were fried chicken cutlets - OMG- unbelievably flavorful and perfectly seasoned, and pepper steak - tender, tasty and with a gravy that you wanted to get the last drop. One side was Spanish Rice, every grain was separate and distinct and the texture was perfect. The other side was baked macaroni and cheese - outstanding! Again, the texture was perfect and it was cheesy throughout. This was REAL baked macaroni and cheese as opposed to the saucy versions which make me think of the stove-top varieties. This reminded me of my mother's and grandmothers macaroni and cheese and they were the best. T & C Catering's serving allotments are very, very generous. My guests feasted on this food and gave rave reviews. I had looked at other caterers and I was not happy with their limited selections so I turned to the internet and stumbled upon Thumbtack, and from them I learned of T & C, a real gem of a find. My event was two counties away so don't be afraid if its not "local." T & C helped give me the 60th birthday party that I had always envisioned. I would use T & C again, in a heartbeat. And their pricing is excellent - What's not to love.
They provided catering services for a holiday luncheon. The food was delicious! Doris and her team were professional and a joy to work with!!
Nick catered my 30th birthday celebration. All of my guests loved the food, wine, and custom cocktails. The lamb and chorizo sliders were so good I've been trying to replicate them ever since!
I hired JP for a birthday dinner for my husband - he cooked a beautiful 5-course dinner for 9 people. The food was delicious and exactly what I was looking for. Everyone loved it!
I threw a catered birthday party, and upon signing up with Thumbtack, Brooklyn Kitchen got back to me in the hour. Throughout the entire process, their responsiveness was always immediate and thorough, anytime I had a question, and we were even able to set up a call to discuss the catering. The food was delivered promptly and ready to present/serve, friends raved about the wings at the party and the NEXT DAY. Highly recommend.
