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.

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!!

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.

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!!!

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.

My husband and I hosted an intimate birthday dinner party for our daughter, her boyfriend and guest visiting from Belgium and a couple of close friends. Each of them enjoyed the salmon and lamb chops, the presentation of the appetizers and salad was great. We had a great experience with Chef Aless. We would definitely consider her again for future events. Leila and Gerhard Mueller

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!! :)

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

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.

Great experience. Jo-anne from Aromas was extremely friendly and made the catering/delivery process a breeze. The waffles were a success at our event and the toppings were extremely tasty. The cards provided denoting what type of toppings there were was a great touch. Thank you for the complementary pumpkin bread!

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.

Chef Rob and his crew catered a suprise birthday dinner for me and all i can say is the service and my oh my the food was just soooooo good. Word's cannot explain it. And you get a lot of food for your money. He made cocktail shrimp as one of the appetizers and the shrimp used was the jumbo size shrimp. Who does that this days..just chef Rob. Chef Rob was very attentive to the special needs that I had to the flavor and taste of the menu item's that I choose. Outstanding. .will use this service again
