Just paid a deposit to book Melissa for my event next weekend. Yay!!!!!! This is the 1st time I have hired a professional chef to cater for our monthly dinner party and had a lot of questions and concerns before going into it. Melissa has been extremely prompt, professional and patient in addressing all of my issues and I am really looking forward to working with her. I am confident my event will be a great success and I will be sure to post some more reviews/photos thereafter.

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 us—and 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 d’hoeuvres 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.

Chef Chris and his team were incredible! Chef was professional and responsive throughout the entire planning process and he was accommodating to all our requests. The food was amazing, and the staff was excellent. They left the place cleaner than when they arrived. Can't wait to work with this team again! Thanksbbb

I hired Chef Charly as a personal chef for my birthday celebration. Chef is a professional and has a great passion for food. A few days before my celebration we discussed menu ideas and came up with a full menu which included 3 appetizers and main course. I love black truffles so the menu included the delicious flavor of black truffle oil and black truffles. The food was delicious and the plate presentation was like I was dinning at a Top Resturant. Charly came a few hrs before the party and started his magic in my kitchen. We started with a Farmhouse tomatoes soup crime fresh with black truffle oil. Bacon tart and leeks. Cantaloupe melon,prosciutto di Parma. Followed by the main course. Half Cornish hen, wild mushrooms, truffle mash potatoes, baby zucchini and ratatouille. The food was fantastic and watching a top chef create beautiful dishes in my own kitchen is an experience that I truly enjoyed. I will defiantly hire Chef Charly again and again. I am just waiting for another occasion to celebrate. Charly, expect a call from me in 2016.

Overall I was pleased with her service. I liked the fact that hot food was delivered. This lets me know that it was freshly cooked. In addition every guest was pleased with the service. I would definitely recommend with a 100 percent rating.

Having the team at Be My Guest prepare and deliver our meals for us each week has been nothing but a pleasure. We used to have to go to the grocery store on the weekends (at the busiest times, it seemed), spend our time and money where we didn't want to, and somehow still have wasted food at the end of the week. Chef Manzo knows the perfect blend of taste and keeping with a clean-eating diet, and using Be My Guest has allowed our busy weeks to become less hectic. I would recommend Be My Guest to anyone who is looking for an alternative option to going grocery shopping every week, or is tired of having to prepare lunches/dinners every day!

I was hesitant to hire a personal chef online, but working with Chef Nicholas turned out to be a great experience. He was super friendly & professional. Most of all, the food was amazing. My friends couldn't stop talking about how great the food was. Thanks Chef Nicholas for making my fiancee's birthday dinner a success!

This was last minute, and I haven't had better from chefs who had days to prepare. The menu was well suited to the occasion, the presentation was elegant and the taste good the the last bite. Thanks Wayne

5 + Stars. Peter is an exceptional talented and skilled chef. His food and presentation are impeccable and he is lovely to work with. He prepared a unique Texas themed menu and the Texans said it was the best brisket they've ever had--that is a true compliment. Thank you Peter--Susan C.

Nate and his team did an amazing job catering my son's first birthday at my home. My family is very particular about food and the fact that they were raving about it speaks very highly of his work. Nate is a true professional chef and passionate about his work. For this party, I wanted to be able to enjoy the event and concentrate on my son. Nate's team was attentive to our guests, had beautiful plater presentations, a unique menu, and cleaned up the kitchen so there was no work on my part. We also had a bartender that took care of all the drinks. My husband I highly recommend the Natwerks team!

Chef Craig came to my house to cook dinner for 8 people to celebrate my mother's retirement. He sent me sample menus well in advance of the event and we chose our favorites from those menus. Chef Craig cooked to our preferences while also improvising using his creativity. He was very receptive to those of us who had dietary restrictions (vegetarian, food allergies), and adjusted the courses accordingly. He was easy to work with and the food was fantastic! He and his server left the kitchen spotless and they were both fun to talk to. I would absolutely use him again.

Tamara is simply AMAZING! She is not only an extremely capable and very talented chef, but is also a consummate professional. She knew exactly the type of food that would lend itself to our organization and the event. We had nothing to worry about. Tamara catered a 300 person event for us and people are still raving about her delicious and creative food items. She is a joy to work with and helped make our Benefit an incredible success. Thank you Tamara!
