Andrew F.

Personal Chef

Worked with Chef Chris to create a five course tasting menu for a bachelor party earlier this year. He was extremely responsive, flexible, helpful with suggestions on the food and wine menus, and was completely professional in his execution. From the initial message to final payment, he was communicative with his plans and transparent with his pricing. I was impressed with the quality of the food and his ability to adapt on the fly when an ingredient was no longer available or with unknown plates from an Airbnb rental. I was also impressed with his level of service. The transitions from one course to the next were seamless, and we never felt rushed or waited too long for another course. At the conclusion of the meal, everything was left spotless, with leftovers neatly placed in the fridge. It was so easy and a pleasure to work with Chef Chris.

If you’re looking to kick your feet up and enjoy an incredible dining experience then NY Catering Service is for you. Chef Chris was highly responsive via thumbtack, email, and text. He worked closely with us to curate the perfect menu for my cousin’s bachelorette weekend. Chef Chris’s hors d’oeuvres, salad, main course and dessert were all generous portions and absolutely delicious. His partner Alex served incredible cocktails as well. This duo was very professional, prompt, and cleaned up as if they were never there after the meal. I would 10/10 recommend this service.

Personal Chef

This was my first time hiring a chef and let me just say that Chef Chris exceeded all expectations. From the start he was very responsive via email and was able to accommodate a group of women, all with different dietary needs. He tailored the menu perfectly based on everyone’s diets, which was wonderful. He arrived on time and began cooking right away. We started with some passed bites then moved on to a salad and GF pasta (which was amazing), then enjoyed our main dish and dessert. Every single item was soooo delicious. We were all so impressed with everything from start to finish. It was the perfect way to end our bachelorette weekend. I am already trying to come up with another event to hire him for. 5 stars all around, highly recommend!!

Wedding and Event Catering

Oh my Goodness Chef Chris was beyond amazing. My party was over 2weeks ago and I still have family members and friends calling me asking for Chef Chris’s number. I would double the stars on this Chef if I could. He elevated the status of my party to ultra sophisticated. His professionalism was superior, his staff added to his sophistication. The food melted in my mouth, I have never tasted this level of steak in my life, woow!!! The shrimp was on a different surface. All together I had the experience of an expensive restaurant in London or Paris in my Oyster bay, NY backyard. This chef offered sophistication, class and elegance. Additionally his food is a dream. I would recommend him 100% and I am highly critical of everything, but I have to be honest Chef Chis was flawless. Best choice in a Chef I could have ever made. Thank you for the perfect party.

Personal Chef

My sister had her Bachelorette Party this past weekend out in the Hamptons and Chef Chris and Alex were amazing! Chris was extremely responsive while planning and catered to all our diet restrictions (vegan, dairy free, etc). The food was exceptional - and tons of it. The bucatini pasta, filet mignon, and chilean sea bass were a crowd favorite. The night turned out perfectly and we cannot thank them enough! For anyone looking for a private chef - this is the one for you. We will use them again for sure! 😁
