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.

We found out two days before our event the caterer failed to secure a bartender. We went on thumbtack and Matt responded in minutes. Stephanie was an excellent bar tender. She was on time, had good personality. There was never a line for drinks and she was servicing 90 adults. She even helped the food service people set up. Thanks Matt and Stephanie for bailing me out

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 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 Charly did a fantastic job catering a dinner I hosted at my home for 20 people. He cooked several delicious French dishes, delivered them on time and was very easy to work with. I highly recommend him.

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.

Adolfo and his team catered my mother's 60th Surprise Birthday Party for 15ppl in her apartment. It was an absolute success!!! the food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. the flavor profiles as each course came out complimented the ones before. it was a cohesive menu that we both worked on preparing. the favorites of the night were the mini grilled cheese with the tomato soup shot and the duck wraps. The mini lobster rolls were tasty and we took the leftover lobster and ate them as lettuce wraps. But everything was delish!! I spoke to many caterers and his level of professionalism and follow up was what truly drew me to his as I knew he could be trusted and cared for this event to be a success as much my sisters and i did. Everyone was so pleased and in awe of the service. As soon as an item was sent out - the napkins were whisked away. My sisters and I were able to enjoy my mother's party due to the prompt attention and efficiency of Adolfo's staff. I would love to hire Adolfo again for all my parties. It's well worth it and I'm so fortunate that I was able to find his services. Thank you for his team for making it so special. My mom was blown away- much success to you!! Thumbtack community - please hire them! You will not be disappointed.

We worked with Katherine Fonsella from DeCicco events and cuisine and she was WONDERFUL. We were planning a pre-wedding dinner for about 100 people in the Tarrytown area, but we live in Northern California. We did not know any venues or caterers or suppliers. Katherine helped us find a great, unusual loft venue, arranged all the decor, tables, lighting, and set up the catering from DeCiccos. The staff were excellent, the food was very good, everything went off perfectly. We are so appreciative of all that Katherine did to make our event wonderful!

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!

Tyler bartended our dear friends' engagement party - and he was excellent! He quickly whipped up a fabulous signature cocktail with ingredients I had around the house, and it was a huge hit. He even stepped in to help me finish up some last appetizers, offering helpful suggestions and proactively finding his way throughout the apartment to make sure our guests were well taken care of. We will absolutely be using The High Life Productions in the future.

Peter and his team were absolutely amazing. Not only was he great at communicating with me prior to the event, but he also offered many delicious options for the menu to ensure there would be something for everyone at my party. The team was on time and very respectful of the staff and the space, putting together a lovely set-up with flowers (!) that made the event feel that much more special. The food and drinks were delicious. My personal favorite were the pulled pork sliders and mojitos, but everyone raved about how delicious all of our appetizers were. Peter even sent a special plate over to me (the host) to ensure I'd have a chance both to eat and sample his delicious menu. I cannot say enough about the friendliness of him and his staff throughout the night. They were just so thoughtful and professional. I would (and will!) absolutely hire Peter and Creative Table Catering again in the future. My friends were also very impressed by him and the value of the services he offered at my event. In a city with innumerable options for caterers, I would highly recommend Peter for any event you have. He made my special night a celebration to remember.

Prior to working with Melissa, she was very responsive. She was comfortable responding over text, email and phone. She gave me ample time on the phone so that I could get to know her before coming to our house. Additionally, Melissa was patient as I tried to figure out the menu for the actual event. On the night of the event, Melissa came over to the house. We were staying at a rented home that had limited supplies. Melissa was not at all thrown off by this, and she had brought all of the materials she would need to cook with. While Melissa was happy to cook in the kitchen alone with her assistant, she was extremely social with the other members of the party (there were seven of us); and was happy to share what she was cooking, how she was doing it, and answering any questions people had. A mixed gender bachelorette party, Melissa was really able to understand the energy of the space, and was even willing to take pictures of our group before she left! The food she made was absolutely delicious and she was able to find a good balance between feeding everyone without having too much food left over. I would definitely hire again for another event!

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!

We have had Oscar cook for us on several occasions. As an overall general statement, I do not hesitate to say that his food is delicious (and my husband is a "foodie"). His ingredients are always fresh and the pride he takes in the kitchen is enviable. He was extremely accomodating to whatever need or desire we had and is flexible in everything from the choice of food, to the amount of money we wanted to spend, to his presence in our home. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Oscar to anyone interested in having a private or personal chef or catering for an occasion. He is skillfull in cooking many different types of dishes and will often surprise you in how delicious and unique he can make ordinary dishes taste out-of-this-world. We will definitely have him back soon.

Chef Dave just catered my wedding last Sunday 3.26.17 in NYC. First and foremost- Chef Dave is a super nice guy and very accommodating. I originally thought we would only have 40 guest, but we were wrong and ended up with 70 guest. Chef was totally flexible and adjusted the menu accordingly. He was very responsive and coordinated with my event planner seamlessly. The food was amazing! We also had so much food! Our guest had second and thirds... they loved it too. The meatballs were out of this world, the chocolate flourless torte was a crowd pleaser especially for my GF friends! Chef Dave was so easy to work with and gave me so much peace of mind! I am so grateful that I was able to connect with him via Thumbtack.

I picked Cornbread26 2 days prior for a last minute Mother’s Day Dinner and I’m So happy I did! I could not have asked for anything more. Claude and Craig did an extraordinary job. I was a little skeptical picking a caterer just from searching online and I had a combination of concerns. My family members are diabetic and have high blood pressure so cooking with certain ingredients was huge for me while keeping the flavor for others. I also had children coming to join and wasn’t sure if the food would be kid friendly but the food exceeded my expectations along with my family. Everything was delicious and tasty. Their food was the highlight of the night. I would definitely recommend this company and look forward to working with them for my future events.

BOOK'EM NOW!...... LIKE RIGHT NOW!!! Hands down thee best catering company I have ever experienced! I used RSVP as the owner catered a friend's engagement party in February. I have worked in the restaurant industry for several years and could not believe the attention to detail that their wait staff displayed. They were on point with everything and my glass never went empty. The whole staff was very nice and very professional. Especially the bartender . I chatted it up with him for a bit, made really good drinks and was a real friendly guy. Now, the food was outstanding! I really enjoyed the gorgonzola stuffed babybella mushrooms amongst all the other delicious dishes. I had a chance to meet the owner Renee after the dinner while everyone was dancing. Not over exaggerating at all, they were probably the kindest people I every met. SUPER COOL, totally humble, and they even gave me food to take home. I would recommend RSVP to anybody and everybody that wants their party to be a success!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
