Chef Ellen was amazing. She is responsive and extremely professional. Her selection of appetizers was huge and she was very helpful in the selection and the amount of different appetizers I needed for the size of my party. Her presentation was sophisticated, classy and creative but the most important was that everything tasted delicious!!! She was friendly to my guests and really made an impression on them. At the end of the night, everything was cleaned up and any extras were put away in my refrigerator. i highly recommend Chef Ellen and will definitely use her for all my parties
I hired Chris to prepare a 3 course meal plus passed apps and dessert for an intimate gathering in my home this past weekend. This was my first time hiring a chef for a personal event and it couldn't have gone better. Chris is professional, yet engaging and the food was fresh and delicious. The experience was further enhanced by the personalized service and wine pairing suggestions provided by Roman. Chris brought everything he needed with him and you could eat off the floor by the time he left. Chris and Roman also worked wonders my meager dinnerware and serving utensil options (note to self to fix that for future parties). As a special touch, Chris even whipped up some homemade mac and cheese for our younger guests. I will absolutely hire Chris and again and if you are smart - you will too.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Maria Luisa. The hard work and attention to detail that she and her staff put in to my son's Communion party was extremely impressive. Everything from the centerpieces to the passed hors d'oeuvres to the amazing roasted pig(absolutely stunning how they presented the pig!!!) to the desserts! Just absolutely perfect! The wait staff did an amazing job having everything move smoothly from one course to the next! My guests (all 180 of them) loved everything. I have been getting emails and text messages from people saying how wonderful and successful the party was. It was due to you all their hard work that the party came off so phenomenal! Not only was the presentation of the food and the decorations visually appealing but the food tasted incredible! I will definitely be using them again and will recommend them to any one looking to throw an amazing, unforgettable party, no matter how small or big- they can handle it!!!!
Andrea went above and beyond our expectations. We throw many parties and she hands down was the best bartender/server ever. She was professional, so so dedicated to satisfying everyone, and a sweet lady. We tried to not let her leave because we were loved her so much. We will absolutely hire her again without hesitation. We love you Andrea!! Thank you for keeping our guests hydrated and happy!!
Ana did a spectacular job managing our son's 3rd birthday party. We did a peppa pig themed party and she was very accommodating with all of our requests, made the process seamless and the end result was stunning. All our guests commented on how beautiful the decor was and Ana and her team were extremely professional with every aspect of planning the party. We would seriously consider hiring her again for our next event.
The guys at Highlife were amazing! They made our event such a success. Victor and Jacques were extremely personable, charismatic, and fun! Loved having them a part of our party.
Peter has taken the wedding party for my son, Michael and his wife, Fate, to a highest level that anyone could ever imagine. He paid attention to all details from the moment he walked into our house to set up the food stations, the bar stations and the kitchen where he and Jennifer, his assistant, worked. The food he cooked were very creative and beautiful and his staffs were so good in learning how to say the names of our Vietnamese and Filipino food. I strongly recommend Peter to any parties, whether for a wedding event, or home dinner. Thank you, Peter, you are the greatest (may be Momofuku should pay attention to the next Pork Belly bun with Kim Chi). Best regards, Kim
As someone who is obsessed with food, I know good from mediocre, and mediocre from just plain bad. I am also someone has ZERO capacity to cook for more than, like, 1-2 people at a time tops 4 .but I happen to have a big extended family and group of friends that LOVES to entertain and BE entertained. So, on one hand its great because it gives me LOTS of excuses to eat wonderful food to my hearts content (yay cheat days!); on the other hand, I have panic attacks just THINKING about preparing for one of these parties in terms of planning menus, figuring out what and how much stuff to make, shopping, prepping, cooking, cleaning, etc My heart is actually starting to race right now just WRITING about it!!! However, about 7 years ago, I found my secret weapon. I was at an event my old job was hosting, and the food was AMAZING and so creative and delicious. The theme was gourmet comfort food, and Ill never forget it because I LOVE comfort food, and the dishes they served at the event were such cool, delicious, creative versions of some of my favorites. I was in the restroom at some point fixing my make-up, and a Chef Alana happened to be at the sink as well. We just started chatting and I liked her instantly. She has such a great energy that you will notice right away when you meet her (and you SHOULD meet her!) As it happened, I was in the beginning stages of planning a holiday party with my sister, and we were tying to decide what to do about food. When I mentioned this to Chef Alana, she immediately threw like 3 great potential ideas at me!!! We exchanged info and I contacted her the next day. We talked about the details of the party, the types of guests they would be there, particular tastes, requirements, special dietary needs of some of the guests, etc. and she said she'd whip up a proposal and get back to me. Two days later she sent me an EPIC menu, layout of how she and her staff would work, breakdown of her price and some great tips as well! I hired her the second I was finished reading....and the rest is history. Chef Alana and her staff have done every single event I have ever needed catered,since then, as well as many for people I have referred her to. On a totally opposite note from being an obsessed foodie and big entertainer/entertainee, I happen to also be a former figure competitor (a category in the bodybuilding world). Now, while I dont seek out the healthiest dishes when planning a party or family gathering, Chef Alanas food almost always can be considered healthy in that she only uses the freshest ingredients and every single element of every dish is homemade. She skimps on NOTHING in terms of quality, freshness and authenticity. But I digress. The real point I was about to make is that for the two years I was competing, I hired Chef Alana to do all of my meal prepping and delivery. We thoroughly discussed my needs and preferences which were VERY picky and obnoxious and she NAILED it every single week. The amount of time and frustration she saved me during that already-stressful time was PRICELESS. I refer all of my friends and family to Chef Alana and her Most Wanted Chef staff any chance I get. She is that good. I actually hate making recommendations to people on services and products, etc. in case things dont go well and then Id feel responsible. In all honesty, though, I NEVER hesitate to recommend Chef Alana/Most Wanted Chef, and I will continue to tout her services and UTILIZE her services every chance I get. Do yourself a favor if you have ANY need for a caterer or a private chef - reach out to Chef Alana, be prepared to be blown away, and see why she really is the Most Wanted Chef.
Anna did an Amazing job for my daughters party the adults and children loved her performance
I hired Platter Matters Catering for my 40th Birthday Party. Ivett did a phenomenal job planning the entire event! She took care of all the rentals and flower arrangements, too. Bernadett helped me create a custom menu(many allergies in the family). The staff was very friendly and professional. All of my guests raved about their food and service. My kitchen was left spottless at the end of the event. I highly recommend them!! Emily Westport, CT
Eleni got back to us right away with custom cookie ideas for our baby's 1st birthday party. She customized them to exactly our theme / colors, wrapped them nicely and they served as a great party favor. She was a pleasure to work with.
Party Center was the perfect fit for our party. They were on time, efficient and a joy to work with at out home.
Brittney has been an invaluable resource and advisor during our entire planning process. We're sort of hands-off when it comes to our wedding and our focus is more on nailing down the major elements of a good party so we can enjoy ourselves and not get bogged down with details. Brittney totally gets that. She is a fantastic listener and a true professional. She has checked in with tips to keep us on track, offered recommendations for fabulous vendors from her arsenal of partners, and is just generally a fabulous, thoughtful person. We trust her entirely and feel so much more at ease (and confident we'll enjoy our wedding day!) knowing she will be directing the flow of events. We highly recommend her to anyone who is considering wedding day guidance -- from basic service the day of to full blown planning. Brittney is amazing!
Renee was responsive and professional from our first contact. She provided a very competent server for our party and did not require a minimum number of hours of work. We were able to be flexible and determine how many hours we needed help at the time of the party. Very satisfied!
Evelin did a beautiful job decorating my baby's Birthday Party. She is great to work with as well.
Agnes was very professional, on time and very organized. My son's baptism looked Great! I will definitely be using her for future parties.
It was such a pleasure working with Rohanie and I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a very detailed, thoughtful and thorough event planner and organizer. Rohanie was hired to help plan my 40th Birthday party which had an 80s Prom theme. She immediately showed her attention to detail in her initial room selections which had strict instructions for a room with windows. Boy did she ever find that! From there her careful organization and frequent check ins, lists, budgets, searches for vendors, etc went so smoothly that I never had to worry about a thing. The night of the event, Rohanie was on top of absolutely everything which allowed me to thoroughly enjoy every minute of the party with my guests. I am very thankful to have found Rohanie to plan my birthday party. I am so confident in her and her capabilities that I have referred her to other friends and family for more events. Rohanie, thank you for making my 40th birthday party truly remarkable! It was a joy to work with you!
Amandabear Party Rentals were easy to communicate with, had many options, and even came to my house to measure before the party to make sure that the double slide would fit. Thanks so much - you made 25 kids (and many parents) very happy!
George was very communicative before the event, came half an hour early (!), incredibly professional and took initiative during our party so we did not have to worry about anything.
One Eleven Events did the decorations for my baby shower and everything came out amazing! Cambrea was great and was very detail oriented. Would definitely use this company again for my future parties.
I cannot even begin to express how fantastic it has been working with Rick with regards to planning my 40th Birthday Party! Rick is super responsive, pays close attention to your needs and the details of what you’re looking for for your event, and delivers. He is the consummate professional and I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to put together a special occasion. Thank you, Rick, and The Noise Group, for everything you’ve done to make my birthday party so memorable!
