The food was Fabulous. The caterer was late and didn't tell me that she doesn't provide heating trays or any utensils etc. I didn't ask about those things because all the other caterers supply them and I just assumed she would as well. Otherwise, Ellen is a very nice person and did a great job. I was happy with the food and service.
Kimberly was a perfect fit for our party. She was sub contracted by Matt (Santisi Catering) and we couldn't be more pleased. She was friendly and all our guests feel relaxed with a pleasant nature. She went beyond her bartending responsibilities by helping us clean dishes, clear garbage and straighten up our kitchen. We would definitely use Santisi Catering again and would love to have Kimberly return.
Charly came to my apartment to prepare a surprise birthday dinner for my wife's birthday (6 of us total). This was the first time I've booked a personal chef, so I did not know what to expect. Upon booking Charly for my event, he called to consult with me about putting together a bespoke three-course menu for her special evening. Charly took care of all the details, getting all the supplies, and even printing custom menus for our table for that extra touch. While Charly's preparation and presentation were exceptional and professional, it was his execution that truly blew us away. This is not someone who just cooks for you. Charly has an excellent command of French and Provencal cuisine, and his dishes were superbly presented and stunningly delicious. It was a real treat to have such excellent food and culinary craftsmanship in our own apartment, and I like to think I can cook pretty well! Charly's warmth, professionalism, and dedication to his art as a chef are the reasons we're excited to have him again for a future event. You won't be disappointed!
Chris assisted me with my wedding catering - on top of being such an extremely talented chef, he is so knowledgable about food & catering logistics. I have also eaten at many of the restaurants he has cooked at - amazing! So lucky to know a chef like him.
I found Bacco Caterers on Thumbtack. I was impressed with the five stars and the reviews, so I contacted Chef Lauren to begin to see if she was the caterer for usand was she ever! Joyce and I wanted to include our friends and family in our marriage anniversary celebration in our Brooklyn home. We are novice Open House hosts and Lauren advised us re details we would never have thought of, including in our menu selections. Her staff, chef Amanda and sous chef Laura, created freshly made hors dhoeuvres in our kitchen as the party occurred, superb finger food that was varied, interesting, and delicious! People, including us, loved it. The servers Karen, Tony, and Kevin, and bartender Elroy were unobtrusively attentive and friendly to our guests. Our party took place on two floors and the yard, and the staff kept the food appearing and the empty glasses disappearing with seeming effortlessness. Many guests commented on how comfortable they made everyone feel, contributing to the general sense of joyousness. In spite of our request for no gifts, or perhaps because of it, many of our 50 guests brought flowers. As soon as I was handed the bouquets, Tony would appear and would arrange them in vases I had directed him to when flowers first arrived. I was free during the whole party to visit with my friends and family. I, who am not a party-person, enjoyed myself fully during this celebration, and I am grateful to Chef Lauren and her staff for the many ways (including a fantastic clean-up) they helped make that possible.

I used Tamara for my engagement party and she was fantastic! I had about 60 people and we started with passed h'ourderves during a cocktail hour in one room (she provided the staff and a bartender). While this happened she was setting up the buffet dinner in another room. She let me know when it was ready and then (timing was flawless) we moved into the second room for dinner. My friends and family raved about the food, which included gluten-free and vegan options as many had dietary restrictions. We had a French theme as I had gotten engaged in France and Tamara worked with me on a French menu, including a delicious chocolate-hazelnut crepe desert with fresh berries. She was totally on-point with timing, presentation, and professional execution, including proactively handling things like insurance with the building so it wasn't a hassle for me. The reason I initially chose her was because she was more reasonable than the other bids I received for caterers in New York but she offered identical services to what they had proposed and she went the extra mile the day of the event. I will definitely be using her again and I would highly recommend her to anyone. I am still receiving compliments on her food and the friendliness/professionalism of her staff.
We had a party in our home for 30 colleagues. Chef Dan arrived exactly on time and brought everything he needed with him. He prepared an array of visually appealing and delectable tasting culinary creations that wowed our guests taste buds and satiated their appetites. The bartender was great and the servers did an impeccable job of constantly bringing Dan's gourmet offerings while being pleasant and unobtrusive. Many caterers provide quantity and some high quality- chef Dan did both at a reasonable price and with a smile on his face. He cooked everything fresh in our kitchen and when he and his staff finished, our kitchen looked as pristine as when he arrived. The party was great fun and a big success. Every one of our guests commented on how fabulous the food was and how outstanding the service. He is our go to guy for any future parties or affairs. kudos and thanks. Mel & Pamela Pratter
Great Caterers, great food, great setup, easy to work with.
We are so happy to have chosen Manjar to cater our New Year's Day party. Experience with a variety of caterers over the years has shown how hard it can be to find someone who is responsive during the planning process and provides excellent food and service. Everything we had on our menu was delicious! Hosting a group of well-traveled, adventurous eaters, having highly flavorful dishes, aesthetically presented, is always a goal. Thanks to Adolpho and his staff that was exactly what we got. We would order everything again but I must say that everyone agreed that the baby lamb chops were the best they ever had (and this group has had a lot!), and the tuna ceviche was exceptional. But I don't want to slight the other dishes (especially the superb mushroom risotto and vegetable "towers" which were beautiful...I could go on and on). I was impressed from the beginning with our first exchanges through Thumbtack. Adolpho mentioned doing a walk-through months before to see our physical set-up. Besides the hour I'm sure it took him to get here, we spent another hour talking and making final plans. I never felt rushed; he is a great listener. He asked questions that I wouldn't have considered and the party was all the better for that. We felt totally pampered and relaxed throughout the evening. The kitchen was left immaculate. Adolpho captures what is, to me, the best combination of professionalism and warmth. He is simply delightful to work with, as are his staff. We are so grateful to have found him and look forward to our next party with Manjar. Deborah Corbett Montclair, New Jersey
I had a great experience with LCI Caterers, Joe is amazing not only did he put my menu together he nailed it !! Everyone at the party loved the food. The staff that he sent were extremely helpful with everything ... Thank you ladies ox 100% Satisfied I will be calling again for my next event..
Erika's custom home cooking lesson was excellent, and was very flexible on menu choices. She made sure we could schedule the time and prepare with ease. She is very knowledgeable, friendly, and brings great energy. Highly recommended!
Chef Aless made our wedding party an amazing success. She was professional, responsive and kind. Not to mention the food -- which was absolutely delicious! She also worked with us on a great custom menu for our needs -- overall it was a wonderful experience.
Chef Martin is amazing! He was so communicative and set an amazing menu from the beginning. His prices are also much more reasonable fair than other caterers I’ve spoken with. We used him for our daughters birthday party, and we had 60 guests. On the day of the event, Chef went above and beyond to ensure he provided a beautiful presentation, delicious food, and professional service. I would highly recommend!
We hired Tyler to operate a small bar at our office on the final evening of our annual hackathon. The service was great, Jason who he sent over was an excellent bartender, and the transaction was seamless and easy! They even created custom drinks for us, which was a great surprise. Highly recommend this team and looking forward to using them again!
Oscar provided a custom food menu for our pop-up store's launch event as well as handling the specialty cocktail we had requested to coincide with our event. Oscar was professional and communicative throughout the entire process. His staff (sous chef and two bartenders) were friendly and professional and did an outstanding job. We received high praises for the food, both taste and presentation. Highly recommend Oscar ... as long as it doesn't overlap with when we need him for one of our future events. :)
This is the first time that I've personally worked with a caterer for a small event (15 people) and it couldn't have gone better. Chef Stenneth was very detailed when presenting me with catering options. He worked within my budget and was open to any suggestions and alterations I had. He was communicative and responsive to all my inquiries and delivered everything punctually. A true professional! The food itself was AMAZING! The guests at my event all specifically pointed out how much they enjoyed the food! Chef Stenneth's culinary skills easily rival top restaurants in the city and I feel like I've found a hidden gem with him. I would easily recommend him to anyone looking for a caterer for any party size!
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.
Brenda is amazing ! Work within our budget very professional and prompt response. Highly recommended.
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.
Nancy catered a bridal shower brunch at my house for my daughter. She was knowledgeable, helpful and accommodating, - and provided great food, too. It was pricey, but it was worth it. And the portions were extremely generous, in addition.
Little Pleasures provided an upfront and honest quote with no hidden service charges like some other caterers. Their professionalism was amazing. I felt at ease while planning my event with them!
