We hired Ellen to make appetizers for my sisters engagement party. All the food was delicious. Ellen came over and plated all the food beautifully plus she made an extra "surprise" appetizer

Bacco Catering was a great choice for our event. We used them for a charity event at our store and they performed incredibly. Our guest were so pleased as many of them asked me " who are the caterers, this food and service is amazing". Thank you Lauren so much for such a great night.

From start to finish, Tamara was a dream to work with!! We threw an engagement cocktail party for 45 people, and Tamara worked with us during the weeks that we spent planning, to make sure every detail was perfect along the way. Communication was extremely fast (mostly over email, which made it very easy to get some planning in during work hours). We opted for a tasting before the party, so that we could choose exactly what we wanted, and it was fantastic! Everything was absolutely delicious, and the presentation was beautiful. After that we were sure the party would be perfect. We ended up choosing the sliders, chicken tacos, pork empanadas, truffled mushroom wontons (a BIG hit), grilled cheese toasties with tomato soup (a HUGE hit), and crab cakes. As for the actual event, the before, during and after went as smoothly as we could have hoped for. Pre-party setup was quick and efficient. The food prep and distribution during the party was very professional - all of the food was served to our guests warm and fresh, and no one left hungry. In fact, there were just enough leftovers left over for me to enjoy the next day :) All in all, Tamara and her team helped make it a really special event, and I would recommend her to anyone!

I recently booked Chef Dan for a private dinner party. His food was amazing, not only did it taste great but the presentation was clean and forward. I have been around food my whole life and this young man is here to stay. He is a great up and coming chef ! I will be hiring him again very soon!

Joe not only has amazing food (seriously Oh my Goosh) he was one of the most easy going caterers. Not once did I worry about the food or the service. And the price was amazing.

Ericka is fantastic. I am a vegan diabetic. She comes up with interesting menus for us every week and is always conscience of all of my food requirements. Her food is healthy and delicious. She also cooks for my children, who love her food and are very picky. She encourages us to try new things which most often, we love. I would highly recommend her services.

Aless was great - communicative, flexible, and the food was delicious! We had a party for our 2-year-old and she did a fantastic job suggesting toddler-friendly hors d'oeuvres/options. The truffled french fries were a hit!

We had a wonderful time at our group cooking class at La Pulperia. Chef Carlos and his team were so gracious (accommodating of food allergies) and the food was delicious - empanadas, salmon tartar, guacamole and ricotta gnocchi (which we learned how to make). We enjoyed making one of their signature cocktails and sipped wine (and tequila). Thanks to Chef Carlos and everyone at La Pulperia for such a fun and unique time. Also, thanks so much to Tyler for setting everything up!

I had a 1st Birthday Party for my daughter. The food was amazing and everything I was looking for. I had cuban cuisine and the pork shoulder just remind me of my childhood. I was so good. I truly could say I'm still craving the food and wish I didn't give left over to my guest that wanted more and keep it for myself.

Melissa was great. We had an in-depth conversation up front about our dietary restrictions including a shellfish allergy, a gluten sensitivity, and a dairy sensitivity within our party. Overall, we were aiming for a vegan meal. She worked with us and gave us multiple suggestions on dinner options based on our likes and dislikes. She even came by the house to provide samples of her dishes before the event. The night of the event, she did a great job executing appetizers, dinner, and dessert. The food was delicious and she left our kitchen in better shape than she found. I highly recommend Melissa as your next personal chef!

My wife and I hired Above and Beyond Hosting for our small wedding BBQ reception at our house and they exceeded all of our expectations! Jackie waited the event and Alyssa tended bar and they were a perfect team. We briefed Jackie before the event (and we did such a poor job doing so since we were preoccupied with getting ready for the wedding ceremony lol) and she totally ran with it. Every single guest of ours was so impressed at how professional and friendly they were. One of our young nieces was even tailing them throughout the event and they were both so patient and affectionate with her, in fact at one point Jackie was walking around with Melinda in arm! On top of that they even ran to the store to pickup milk!!! Alyssa made fantastic drinks, plates and clutter was cleared, left overs were wrapped and stored, glasses and stemware washed - there was nothing to cleanup at the end of the night / the next morning. Jackie and Alyssa were so on top of things that my wife and I were able to enjoy the party and interact with our guests. Jackie and Alyssa saw how busy we were with our guests, the photographer and the day in general that they even prepared us plates of food to make sure we would eat! Our reception ended up being perfect and it wouldn't have happened without them! The company name suits them well. We recommend that you use Above and Beyond for your next event as they will exceed your expectations. We will definitely use them in the future at our next event. Thank you Jackie and Alyssa!

Bella Couture Events helped make my wedding epic! She went above and beyond her call of duty to insure we had an amazing and stress free night. She was super responsive from our initial contact. So responsive that we were sometimes the ones taking long to get back to her lol. We had already hired our vendors (caterer, bar services, DJ, decorator, officiant, cake) but Bella Courture coordinated everything and communicated with all the vendors. She went through a walk through a month before our event and helped create a detailed schedule of events made sure everything was on time. She spoke with vendors and helped smooth out any confusions weeks before the wedding. One the day of there were no worries. She had an assistant that was great and tended to things as well. When our MC got a flat on the way to the wedding she stepped right in and even MC’d the reception. Incredible! She was super professional and helped us with every aspect of day of coordination. She helped my bride change into her second dress and even helped clean at the the end of the night even though that wasn’t in her job description. She’s just amazing and we have been gushing about her every day. I’d hire her a million times over!

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!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
