Sweet Basil Catering did a fantastic job catering our outdoor wedding last week. The food was amazing. We had a selection of hors d'ouvers and a couple of food stations. Everyone raved about the food. I really appreciated all the special touches they took making the food look beautiful and artistic. The planning process was smooth. We booked pretty late in the game after our initial wedding plans fell through due to covid. Amy and her team walked us through this difficult time, making it an easy process. Big thumbs up!!!

We postponed our wedding due to covid19 and instead ordered boxed meals from Sweet Basil for our wedding of 15 in central park last week. The boxed cheese tasting was adorable and all of the food was delicious. I especially enjoyed the roasted salmon and corn dish. As a foodie I definitely recommend them!!

I just wish I had another event coming up soon so that I could book Sweet Basil. The delicious food, stunning presentation, and excellent staff make them my go to caterers for events large and small.

I recently worked with Amy and her team on an event for about 120 people. Amy was a delight to work with; she was flexible and offered helpful suggestions when asked, and she was through and quick to respond to emails and calls. The food was delicious, and the guests raved about it (pulled pork sliders! bright, flavorful orzo salad! strawberries stuffed with sweet mascarpone! raspberry lemon cookies so light they practically floated away!). The staff was friendly, polished and professional, and when the event got a little stormy they remained composed and continued to help everyone at the party. They really went above and beyond the call of duty, and I would work with them again in a heartbeat. Thanks Sweet Basil!
