Ellen Deluise catered a wedding reception for me for 150 people. I selected a traditional menu but Ellen provided several other menu options to choose from. She was very professional, easy to work with and was quick to respond to phone calls. The quality of the food and presentation were excellent. I would definitely hire her again in the future.

We hired Santisi to bartend a pre wedding event of about 150 people. Matt came and was able to handle the bar service alone, and everything went extremely well. He is very professional, prompt and accommodating. Would highly recommend!

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.

Everything that was served had its own amazing flavor. The service was perfect! ***** Would recommend to anyone. Thanks Lauren! It was exactly what I wanted!

Tamara and her team catered our wedding reception (about 100 guests). She also did day of coordination and set up for the event. The day and night ran smoothly and the food was delicious (one of our guests told me the appetizers were the best she had ever had). The staff was friendly and helpful. Additionally, Tamara was flexible and amenable to our requests. She responded to our questions promptly.

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

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!

I have two words for Manjar Boutique Catering - Hire Them! Adolfo and his team were nothing more than stellar. We hired them for our wedding. From the initial courtship down to the reception and after, Manjar treated us with professionalism and empathy. There was continuous communication during the months that led to our big day. We did not want your typical "wedding dinner" of mash potatoes and steamed wrapped vegetable. Since my spouse and I are from different cultures, we wanted the food to reflect us. Manjar created a customized menu that did just that. The food tasting was also an experience as well. We felt like we were in a 5-star restaurant with the chef joining us at the table. Once we tasted their food, we immediately signed the contract! On our wedding day, the service was spectacular! We decided to have a family-style dinner where guests would have to interact with each other while passing around food plates. Our guests commented during and after the wedding how good the food and the service were -- which is exactly what we wanted.

Joe and his team were fantastic. We could not have had the wedding we did within our budget without the dedicated work of Joe and his team. We had over 200 people and Joe had a staff of 8 (which felt like 12) to prepare food for service, serve appetizers, bus tables and serve dinner. They were incredible. The food was excellent and Joe did a tremendous job in an incredibly challenging situation. We did not have a kitchen in our venue, so Joe was forced to make due by cooking ahead of time, transporting foods in temperature controlled containers and reheating onsite. The food quality did not suffer one iota, and Joe worked with us for months in advance of the wedding to design a menu which would respond to the challenges of the venue. People still mention how good the filet was 8 months later. Beyond the quality of the food, Joe is a full service caterer. For a nominal fee (far below any rental quote), Joe provided dinner plates, salad plates and cutlery for all of our guests. Joe also provided chafing dishes and serving instruments which were not available at our venue and which would have been exorbitant had we been forced to rent them from a third party vendor. Having the same person responsible for all of the food related rental items and the catering saved us time and money. Finally, Joe will work with you to make a menu for almost any budget. He understood our cost constraints and worked with us in creative and helpful ways to achieve a delicious menu we were proud to serve while respecting our initial budget. I only gave Joe 5 stars because they don't offer a 6 star review. He is excellent and the best choice available in the New York City area for wedding catering. Thank you Joe!

Chef Aless is a gem. When we first met Chef Aless she immediately put us at ease. She has the perfect blend of intuitiveness, professionalism, flexibility and a wonderful attention to detail! I was so excited to have her cater for our wedding and told some of the guests beforehand to be sure that they stopped by to meet her! It is always so refreshing to work with someone so accommodating and easy to work with, and Chef Aless has those qualities in spades. The food was as beautiful as it was delicious. My personal favorites were the miniature pork taquitos! You want things to be just right for your wedding and Chef Aless ensured that they were! She brought her own servers after ours fell through shortly before the wedding. Days before the wedding I emailed to see if she could help out with “just one more thing” and it was no problem. In short, I never had to worry about her part in our wedding day, and as any bride can attest that speaks volumes. Thank you, Chef Aless! We are so grateful. We hope we will have a reason to use your services for another occasion again!

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!

I loved working with Alana. She was a joy to work with and her work was exceptional. This was my first experience with a caterer and she and her team more than met my expectations. The event was a reception for my daughter's wedding: a low key, at home affair. From the the planning process, to the party wrap-up, Alana was with me the whole way. Her experience and professionalism made it an event to remember. BTW, the food was excellent, the set-up and service classy, and being the hostess a breeze. I want an excuse to use Most Wanted Chef LLC again as soon as I can!

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.

Open Skies Hospitality has catered quite a few events for us, both large and small, and we couldn't be happier. Chef Albert is extremely talented, so food is always delicious. He adapts the menu and format to fit our needs, from a formal wedding reception for180 guests, to passed hors d'oeuvres and a buffet for 240. The whole team at Open Skies is top-notch in every way: trustworthy, honest, well-organized, kind, flexible and helpful.

Jason and his team did an excellent job with our wedding. It was a vegan wedding, and although Harvest is not a vegan-specific caterer, the food was excellent. Every guest raved about the food, and many did not realize it was all vegan. Jason was more than willing to work with us to keep the price in budget without sacrificing the things that were important to us or the overall quality. Harvest also handled many of the logistics for us. If I had another big event, I would definitely hire Harvest again.

I was overwhelmed with the demands and costs of a wedding and did not know how to proceed with catering services for the wedding. The costs for 50-60 people were exceedingly high and my budget was suffering because of it. I had made several calls to different caterers but to no avail. Then I tried Thumbtack.com and was very fortunate enough to speak with Yvonne Chambers from Taste of Our Legacy Caterers. She was very patient, reliable, understanding and resilient when it came to addressing the wedding menu. She held a great rapport with me and provided me with sublime customer service. She was also very negotiable with my budget and instead of turning me down like the other caterers; she worked with me until we came up with a price that was fitting. There are not too many caterers like her; she is one of a kind! On my wedding day Saturday, September 27, 2014, the food was delicious! My husband and I enjoyed the delectable arrangements of food. All of my wedding guests were commenting on how great the food tasted. Our wedding menu had a variety of dishes and even had a vegetarian dish as well (pasta primavera) which was a huge hit! If anyone out there is looking for a caterer who will meet your needs according to your budget and menu – Taste of Our Legacy Caterers is the one for you! Pamela

Hiring Ron and Miracle Catering for my wedding on 9/10/16 was the best decision we could have made. From the very start, Ron was very professional and quick to respond to all questions and inquiries. He set up a taste testing before the wedding at my parent's house and from that moment on, we were sold. The food was amazing! I never was that excited about a salad before. Ron was also flexible with planning a menu around our needs and style as we wanted an appetizer/station only wedding that was heavily vegetarian. Ron provided helpful suggestions to make the menu diverse and well-rounded. Ron and his team were able to manage our difficult venue setting that had little indoor space and no kitchen. The day of our wedding went so smoothly mainly due to the staff at Miracle Catering. We rented linens through them and Ron's team did a beautiful job setting up the room without any directions. The staff were so friendly and helpful the entire night. The food was beautifully displayed. All of our guests raved about the food that included brie and roasted apple crostini, tacos, mini burgers, tomato soup shooters with grilled cheese, dumplings, mini baked potatoes with goat cheese just to name a few! We had a pasta station and an Asian station (that had a beef/chicken and a tofu stir fry option). We also used Ron's baker and the cakes were delicious and went perfectly with the ice cream sundae bar. My only regret is that I did not eat more at my wedding and did not take home a doggie bag. I am actively seeking another opportunity to hire Miracle Catering again and would highly recommend them for any event.

JP and his team were fantastic and we look forward to working with him again. He catered an event for 120 guests the night before our wedding so it was pretty important to us that it went right! The food was delicious, we still have friends telling us how much they loved it. He really goes above and beyond to ensure a good experience and provided us with many more dishes than we had anticipated. I would absolutely recommend him.
