Ellen was instrumental in catering at our home for my wife's birthday event. Food was plentiful, varied and delicious. Ellen worked with our palate, our specific requirements (vegetarian) and home setup to provide an excellent spread for our us and our guests. She came up with creative ideas to add flavor and variety and worked extra hard to provide impeccable service. Both Ellen and her delicious food were stars at the party.

Every Detail Catering was the perfect choice for our new baby granddaughter's party at my house this past Sunday. The food and service were excellent! Chuck went above and beyond to make sure our event was everything we hoped it would be and more. Our server, Jenny, was very attentive and made sure all of our guests were taken care of. She even packed all the leftovers in disposable containers that they provided! If your looking for a catering company that will exceed your expectations...call Every Detail Catering!!

Every Detail Catering provided the food for my baby shower held at my home. Everything was set up and ready within 10-15 mins. The presentation was professional and included everything we needed ( Butter, dressings, syrups, salt and pepper). The food was excellent and there was definitely enough for people to have seconds and thirds. The communication throughout the entire transaction was also very smooth and easy. I would definitely consider using again for future events.

My husband and I were looking for a kind, friendly and personable bartender. After the reading the reviews for Santisi Catering, we decided to book and I am glad that we did. Our Bartender name was Kimberly(same as mine) and I said to myself " we have the same name so I know she will be wonderful". Kim was everything that we wanted in a bartender. I couldn't believe that she went into help mode from the moment she walked in the door, quickly saying "what do you need me to do" and " I will do it for you". We are already lookin forward to doing business again with Santisi Catering. Highly recommended.

I hired Santisi Bartending to bartend my engagement party. The party was at a catering call, but I wanted a bartender with more experience then the bartenders they had on staff. Matt did not disappoint. He helped suggest drinks, provided martini glasses, and kept the guest happy all night. Will definitely hire again.

After exhaustive searches for a great local caterer, I found Chef Lauren on Thumbtack. Each review of Bacco Catering had 5 stars and the comments were all outstanding. I called Lauren immediately and we had an instant connection. My husband and I were planning a backyard party for 20 friends and wanted to do something special. Lauren worked with me in putting together an amazing menu of delicious and unique hors d'oeuvres, small plates and desserts. We communicated quite a bit prior to the party about items needed for the evening, ideas and suggestions to the menu and staff requests. The party was to be outside and we were hoping to enjoy the last of summer. The evening of the party arrived and so did the rain. The weather didn't dampen the mood of the party at all.... in fact, Lauren, Carmel, Mary and Sara were amazing and accommodating- no one even noticed that we were inside! The food was delicious, plentiful and beautifully plated. Our friends raved about the food and were so impressed with the overall presentation. I felt that Lauren had a real pulse on the party and everything was totally under control. The kitchen was spotless afterwards and there was nothing for us to do but to have a glass of wine and relax!

We have had the pleasure to work with Bacco catering a number of times, and in each instance they deliver perfectly in terms of quality of food, service, and attentiveness to client needs. Most importantly, the chef creates delicious food with a warmth and responsiveness that makes it feel like it's a friend in your home. The staff are always responsive, helpful, and savvy enough to know the right balance between making sure guests are served, and not drawing attention to themselves. I would highly recommend Bacco Catering for any special event.

I love Bacco! I called Lauren shortly before my son's communion to inquire about catering lunch for 40. Lauren's suggested menu was perfect and didn't even compare in quality to the other samples I received. The day of the event the food was delivered and set up while we were at church. My guests and I were blown away when we got home to see the food displayed beautifully and it tasted just as great. Perfect luncheon. I can't wait to use Lauren and Bacco again. Everything was just as promised and more!

Tamara Shenkle was fantastic to work with. From start to finish, Tamara professionally brought me through the process of planning our marriage celebration NYC cocktail party. From the delicious menu (the guests raved perfectly bite sized hors d'ourves), cocktails & bar (she handled everything) to the handling of a lovely prosecco toast for fifty of our closest friends. Amoraco's food was fresh, exquisite, the glass and serving ware completely taken care of and the staff gracious, skilled and friendly. Thank you Tamara for catering our party.

I knew I was in capable hands with Tamara right off the bat. Her menu was eclectic and accommodating. Full service! Tamara arrived the morning of the shower 45 minutes early to set up.

We worked with Katherine Fonsella from DeCicco events and cuisine and she was WONDERFUL. We were planning a pre-wedding dinner for about 100 people in the Tarrytown area, but we live in Northern California. We did not know any venues or caterers or suppliers. Katherine helped us find a great, unusual loft venue, arranged all the decor, tables, lighting, and set up the catering from DeCiccos. The staff were excellent, the food was very good, everything went off perfectly. We are so appreciative of all that Katherine did to make our event wonderful!

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!

Joe and his staff catered my Brooklyn wedding. The food was delicious! My guests can't stop talking about the wonderful variety and quality of the cocktail hour and the dinner. LCI Caterers is beyond fairly priced and Joe even got me in touch with a great rental company for my china and glassware. The staff was amaizingly attentive. My guests' glasses were never empty and they did a wonderful job of bussing tables. They even did the room flip between ceremony and reception and cleaned up and broke down tables at the end of the night even though they weren't the ones who brought the tables. The champagne was perfeclty timed out for toasting and everything on the catering end ran smoothly and was extremely organized. I can't rave about Joe and his amazing staff enough! They helped me have the wedding of my dreams!

f despite that it was thanksiving day, and she had her own family, Chef Aless catered my family's special day with superb attention to both the food, which was beyond delicious and plentiful, and presentation. She arrived early with a trolley full of delectable hors d'oeuvres, the best turkey ever baked, and containers full of great accompanying veggies. This was the first time I have ever needed outside catering, but the experience of having Chef Aless was so seamless, and the food was so perfect, that even if I have to invent an occasion,which I will, I know she could handle it with a touch of that marvelous French charm and expertise, and very little interference from me!

Working with Chef Martin was wonderful! Finding him was our first foray into Thumbtack - and it turned out marvelously! Having read the MANY 5-star reviews for Chef Martin/Mirabell Catering we were dubious... could he be THAT good? The answer is a resounding yes! We needed a caterer for an entirely gluten-free 4-hour open house for roughly 70 people - kids and adults. Chef Martin was swift in his response to our request for a caterer. He articulated a clear understanding of the menu needs, and how to avoid cross contamination - a BIG deal when you have celiac disease and have to live gluten free. He developed a menu offering a wide array of finger foods at a very reasonable price. By phone, we found him to be a gentleman - a rarity these days. He was professional and organized, calm and cool, affable and charming. (I had a feeling that our friends would want to hang out in the kitchen with Chef Martin and I was right!) Chef Martin arrived promptly and brought everything he needed. As he settled in - even putting us at ease as we hurried to finish readying for our guests - his waitstaff person arrived. From there, Chef Martin turned out hours of incredibly tasty, plentiful, finger food for a large and hungry crowd. Truly, everyone raved about the food throughout the party and after. And Chef Martin WAS as charming in person as he had been by phone. The kitchen was packed! Now here is the totally unexpected thing that happened with Chef Martin: whenever I walked through the kitchen in need of something, before I could say much of anything at all, it would be taken care of or I'd find what I had come in search of in my hand. Chef Martin knows events! His presence just made everything easier. I hope we will have the pleasure of working with him again. My husband and I are proud to say that we have held some great parties, but we enjoyed this party in our home more than any other. It was delightful to spend time with our guests - and to eat! It was a joy to not worry about the cooking or having to hustle about cleaning up throughout or face a terrible mess after. Chef Martin and his gracious and professional staff made our holiday open house easy for us, and a marvelously memorable event for our guests. If you need a personal chef/ caterer, Chef Martin is the man you want.

Best experience ever. We needed a bartender for a private birthday party I was organizing for my boss and took a chance on hiring HighLife. Not only did we get a bartender but we got Tyler himself - the owner of HighLife. He was amazing. Our chef we hired from a different company was a disaster and Tyler took it upon himself to help serve the meals, set the tables with wine glasses, pour water/wine throughout dinner, not to mention making the best margaritas on the planet. Extremely reasonable prices with top notch service that is so hard to find these days. Next party I organize I will simply call Tyler. Whether I need a bartender, chef, catering, etc - HighLife will be my only phone call. Thanks for everything!

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.

Not only did they learn to cook the meal they enjoyed, they learned proper knife skills, cutting a chicken, importance of fresh ingredients vs. store bought, sauce prep and reduction technique, homemade salad dressing, and presentation of the meal.

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!!

I would rate this five star if it didn't have two little accidents. One was we couldn't find a lighter when it was time to light the candles on the cake. Another was kind of a miscommunication, I took a cake for my son but then I myself forgot to take one so the catering team thought I had one already but I guess I was the only one who didn't have the cake as the birthday girl. I don't mind that much because I'm not a cake person and this type of mistake could probably only happen to me bc I think any other person would have requested it. So I wouldn't think it's the catering team's fault. Just letting you know if you are like me who doesn't crave for cakes and will be busy running around, you better get one first, haha. Overall I think the team did a great job. The manager arrived early, the food was delicious, the team was fast and professional, the plating was nice, the manager even helped to bring special bamboo plates for the cake, which is of great quality. I didn't taste much of the wine selection but it seems my friends were happy about them. The pricing was very reasonable and communication was easy. The only possible improvement I could think of is probably adding 2-3 courses. I would highly recommend this caterer to my friends.

They went Above And Beyond to make our event special. Every detail was perfect!!! The food was phenomenal and very creative. You can't beat their prices either. They are very creative, original, and flexible with their party planning ideas. People are STILL talking about how it was the best party they have ever been too. I would do another party with them in a heartbeat. Just need a reason to have another elaborate affair. :)

Open Skies was incredibly responsive, professional, and more affordable than most other catering options yet their service and product was top notch.

I was overwhelmed with the demands and costs of a wedding and did not know how to proceed with catering services for the wedding. The costs for 50-60 people were exceedingly high and my budget was suffering because of it. I had made several calls to different caterers but to no avail. Then I tried Thumbtack.com and was very fortunate enough to speak with Yvonne Chambers from Taste of Our Legacy Caterers. She was very patient, reliable, understanding and resilient when it came to addressing the wedding menu. She held a great rapport with me and provided me with sublime customer service. She was also very negotiable with my budget and instead of turning me down like the other caterers; she worked with me until we came up with a price that was fitting. There are not too many caterers like her; she is one of a kind! On my wedding day Saturday, September 27, 2014, the food was delicious! My husband and I enjoyed the delectable arrangements of food. All of my wedding guests were commenting on how great the food tasted. Our wedding menu had a variety of dishes and even had a vegetarian dish as well (pasta primavera) which was a huge hit! If anyone out there is looking for a caterer who will meet your needs according to your budget and menu – Taste of Our Legacy Caterers is the one for you! Pamela

Yvonne & her team were absolutely the best catering service that I've hired for my team thus far. This was for a larger week long lunch & dinner service in Brooklyn. My guys are very critical and very hungry construction worker type men, which I warned Yvonne about. She saw it as no issue - and no issue it was. She came prepared, on-time, took pride in the food she serviced and dished up some amazing food with large enough portion sizes that even had my team saying they were full! Yvonne and her team stayed and service our dinners, just out of the kindness of her heart and because she takes so much pride in what she does. She looked for feedback each day about the food quality and quantity. I could go on and on about Yvonne, her team and their food. No doubt will use her again and will personally recommend her any day of the week!

Taste our Legacy, (Yvonne Chambers) catered a cocktail party at my apt. for 50 people on short notice. Party was a winner and food was, I believe, the starred attraction. There was plenty of it, beautifully presented and outrageously delicious. A very able and friendly staff work with ms. C to create a very pleasant atmosphere extending out into the party and the guests, as well.

Our experience with Harvest Specialty Catering and Jason was all that I could ask for. We chose this company for our daughter's barn wedding. Initially, Jason was willing to work with us for a limited portion of our event, something many caterers are NOT willing to do. After time (and a taste testing!) we opted to use him for all but dessert (we had a friend doing the cake.) We so appreciated his flexibility and willingness to work with us. He accommodated us and our changing needs at all points of our journey, even in the midst of his own challenges with equipment issues. We never knew about his difficulties until later, and not from Jason but the venue staff, as he and his crew pulled off a wonderful dinner. Our wedding guests were very complimentary of the food. On every level, we were thrilled with our choice. I would highly recommend this company for your event, whatever it may be.

It was a pleasure working with Jason and crew for our "Celebration of Life" event. Jason is extremely professional and pays attention to details. The food was hot and delicious. The crew is extremely hard working. I will be recommending Harvest Catering for future events. I am very much a foodie and the brisket and pig was to die for! Great Job Jason!

The delivery was prompt and efficient. The food received rave reviews from the guests. The only two things that kept from the 5th star was that the pasta was a tad over cooked and I wish coffee were a part of the package. I highly recommend this catering company to anyone. I already have people asking me who catered the party!

From the moment we went for our tasting, we were sold! Joanne and her sister are awesome culinary artists. Our wedding cake (vanilla cake, with Passionfruit buttercream filling) was to die for) and assorted mini-cupcakes were all gobbled up before the end of the evening. People raved, everyone had a favorite. Chocolate

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!

Aromas catered a family dinner at our apartment in honor of my son's 6th birthday. They prepared a delicious sit down meal for the grown ups and perfect buffet for the children (ages 3-10). They also backed the most extraordinary "Dusty" (from the Disney Planes movie) birthday cake. I highly recommend them.

My firm hired David and Paglia Hospitality Inc. to provide breakfast and lunch and a platter of goodies to leave with us for a company event for our employees. One of the partners was enamored with the idea of having a food truck as the caterer for our event. So begins this culinary experience. I asked for typical breakfast fare and he delivered: Homemade corned beef hash, ricotta pancakes, Brioche French toast, and breakfast sandwiches plus more. His food was delicious and was a wonderful way to start our day! In regards to lunch, he even delivered more: Parmesan chicken wings, Tuscan BBQ wings, fried bacon rice balls, lobster rolls, fish tacos, roasted brussel sprouts with Calabrian chili, 5 different sandwiches and 3 burgers. We also had cookies and brownies. He was on time. He was professional. Most importantly: He worked fast to feed 30 people, with every order made upon request! I highly recommend Paglia Hospitality: you will not be disappointed.

His breakfast sandwiches were very delicious, and had many compliments from members of the teams. Very accommodating and will definitely be bringing him back next year.

I can't even begin to express how much Platter Matters Catering was the logistical backbone of our corporate event. They are definitely NOT just another vendor but a partner and consultant to plan and execute your perfect event. They were willing to make special substitutions to fit our preferences and even shared some fun creative ideas for us. The food was simply delicious; it tasted as if made with love and pride. Our guests appreciated the attention to any serious food allergies. All staff was amazing, and Ivett (owner) was a fantastic resource and helped immensely with the planning process, logistics, and answered my questions at all hours of the day.

I recently held a launch event with an invite list of over 50 guests, and I was stressing about a caterer. Everyone I called was either too expensive, didn't have enough dishes to meet the dietary restrictions of my guests, or the menu just didn't look appetizing. I met Sara at a community event in our neighborhood (we both live in Bed Stuy), and I was complaining about how unaffordable and unhealthy the catering options were available to us in our neighborhood. After just one minute of Sara telling me about her private catering service I knew it was the perfect fit. I don't know if it was her genuine passion for healthy eating or her charisma for her work in the community, but I loved working with Sara from start to finish. She even came to the venue and gave me an in person consultation as to what dishes she thought would be best for the event, and included ingredients I told her I could not live without! (avocado please!) The result? Happy guests who could not get enough of Sara's delectable dishes. The vegans, the vegetarians, the pescatarians, gluten free, and of course the carnivores asking me who had curated such wonderful treats! I look forward to working with Sara again. She is definitely my go-to chef for all my catering needs.

I hired Bed Stuy Kitchen to provide finger foods for a cocktail party I was hosting. I didn't know exactly which foods I wanted, so I gave the owner, Sara, a simple list of some allergies a few of my guests had and allowed her to come up with a menu. Not only were the various bites delicious, they arrived early and were beautifully plated. There was something for everyone at my event and everyone continued to ask me who catered the event. Me running out of her business cards to hand out was the only disappointment!! I expect Bed Stuy Kitchen will be getting a few calls from my guests. I intend to use Bed Stuy Kitchen for any future events I host. Thanks Again Sara and all of Bed Stuy Kitchen!

Sara Elise and her team catered my housewarming party for ~40 people at my apartment on the UWS. She developed an amazing menu based on my preferences and the execution was flawless. Her team (despite battling some difficult weather/traffic and running a few minutes late) still managed to create a beautiful spread before the guests hit the door, and the food was fantastic. Her bartender was also a welcome presence at the party serving up cocktails and wine. I couldn't recommend her team more highly.

Oh my where do I start. I hired 3R's Catering & Eventd for a family meet & greet, for my wedding head table and chapel decor. The family dinner was a beautiful start to a memorable weekend. The food was delicious the Mac and cheese was scrumptious. The candy table was breathtaking it was all I could ask for and more. My family was speechless. Next day the wedding chapel was pretty and simple but all we needed because my wife and I were the focal points. The head table was the prettiest setup I've ever seen. It made us feel like we were the Queens of the Night. Simply Beautiful. Regina you have a talent that will take you sooo many places. I appreciate all the hard work and thought you put into making my weekend extra special.

BOOK'EM NOW!...... LIKE RIGHT NOW!!! Hands down thee best catering company I have ever experienced! I used RSVP as the owner catered a friend's engagement party in February. I have worked in the restaurant industry for several years and could not believe the attention to detail that their wait staff displayed. They were on point with everything and my glass never went empty. The whole staff was very nice and very professional. Especially the bartender . I chatted it up with him for a bit, made really good drinks and was a real friendly guy. Now, the food was outstanding! I really enjoyed the gorgonzola stuffed babybella mushrooms amongst all the other delicious dishes. I had a chance to meet the owner Renee after the dinner while everyone was dancing. Not over exaggerating at all, they were probably the kindest people I every met. SUPER COOL, totally humble, and they even gave me food to take home. I would recommend RSVP to anybody and everybody that wants their party to be a success!

A Fancy Thyme Catering just left after preparing our family reunion dinner. We cannot say enough positive things about Chef Carols Roa and the food he prepared. From the first time we spoke about the event, he was professional and detailed about the menu. He answered all questions ahead of time including which wines would compliment each course. At our request, he educated us and answered all our questions about the menu as he prepared each course. The food was exceptional and he we so personable. By the time he left, we felt like he was part of the family. As an added bonus, everything was cleaned up and put away. We would not hesitate to have A Fancy Thyme Catering host an event for us in the future.

We hired Carlos for a dinner at a girls getaway weekend. Carlos was great to plan with and had excellent recommendations for the menu. He was almost always quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had. On the day of the event he arrived on time. The service was great - as he and his assistant were patient and accommodating with the loud/large group. Most of the food was excellent and as described. Unfortunately he did not bring one of the main agreed upon side dishes for the night. Overall, it was a good experience and I would recommend Carlos!

I organize regular catering for my company, a tech startup that works with restaurants. Because of our work in food tech, our employees love food and are food experts. Our team is always looking for the best in taste, quality, and presentation. I was so excited when our VP handed me Jessie's card. I could tell right away by the website and mission that this would be a great fit for us! I love the company's focus on healthy food and sustainability, obvious commitment to quality, customer service, look and design, and I love the idea of convenient balanced food bowls. It was really easy for our staff to create many different bowls that work with all sorts of diets and taste preferences. They can easily enjoy at their desk or in our common spaces without any mess. And even better, our employees return to work feeling energized and good, instead of crashing as they would after eating something of lower quality.

The service and quality of Ox Verte is unparalleled in the NYC catering space. Their produce is incredibly fresh, their sauce creations are better than you can find anywhere in NYC, and best of all, they work with local farmers. Somehow... they trick you into wanting to eat healthy. I could honestly eat an Ox Verte salad everyday. Only complaint is they don't have a restaurant and I have to force my office manager to order them for catering when I have the craving!

You can't go wrong with this place. One of the hardest things about catering an event is picking items that everyone will enjoy, and Ox Verte's wide variety of healthy foods made it easy for everyone to eat what they wanted and still feel energized to go about their busy day. They also showed up right on time, provided labels with dietary information about every item on the menu, and explained where the food came from. Safe bet for any occasion.
