I am so glad that my husband and I decided to work with Chef Ellen for our wedding party. So many things about our experience were great: the food presentation was awesome and she took a lot of care to make sure it matched our aesthetic; Ellen's staff was super pro and worked well in a venue with no kitchen; Ellen was very responsive in her communication and I felt well taken care of. And most importantly, the FOOD was delicious! Would happily recommend Renegade Caterers to anyone.
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.

Charly prepared a beautiful four course meal for my wife's surprise birthday dinner. We each had a beautiful tomato soup, salmon and asparagus salad, and different entrees - I had the filet mignon, my wife had the lamb chops, and her grandmother had the salmon. Everything was superb. Charly had already done some food prep when he arrived so the first course was served soon after he arrived. All courses were perfectly timed. It was unbelievable that it was only him in the kitchen! We highly recommend Charly.
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.
Global Chefz Catering was professional,clean, and organized. I will be calling again!
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!
Tyler was very responsive in our correspondence before the event and very thorough on understanding exactly what I needed and outstanding on fulfilling all of those needs. The bartender (Ben) that worked the event was very personable and definitely met/exceeded my expectations. He not only was good at making drinks, but he showed initiative on setup, busing the tables, and the final cleanup. I was overall extremely pleased with the entire experience and look forward to working with Tyler, Ben, and HighLife Productions 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!
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.
Carol Foster catered my wedding in New York in August 2, 2014.. OMG I do not know where to start, Ms.Carol and her team went above and beyond to make sure this event was successful. She catered 500 people but on that day there were more than 500 people. Mind you that I am African so we throw large party even when you do not plan for it to be that large so my max was 500 not knowing what will happen that day...However, Ms. Carol did not panic and worked successful with my coordinator. From the beginning she worked with our budget and was able to help us with some of her recommendation of the dishes. She and her team were there on time. From the reviews of family members, friends and the guests of the event stated that her food was really good and tasty. They were very professional. Ms. Carol is the best and I will use her again in a heart beat. She made my wedding dreams come through. Oh she also has a great personality and a warm nature person and will work with you no matter your budget. What attracted my coordinator and I was her personality and after the food tasting which was done by my fiancé at that time and two of my siblings since I was located in Texas. So I was praying to hear good news from the tasters and they told me her food was really good among the other caterers and her house was very organized and neat. Ms. Carol keep on with the great job you do and God bless you and your team. YOU ARE THE BEST.
Chef Dave was a pleasure to work with. He had a huge assortment of menu items to choose from and all of the ones we picked for our cocktail hour were delicious. He was very responsive and professional. He worked with us to make sure we got all we needed and that everything was set and ready to go on our big day. His work definitely helped to alleviate some of the stress of wedding planning. My only regret is that we didn't book him for our reception as well. We were doing a traditional Chinese wedding and the second venue already had their own catering. Otherwise, I'm sure Chef Dave would've also aced it there. Highly recommend.
David and the team were extremely helpful and professional in arranging everything and accommodating our needs. Day of Philipp, Chef Albert, and the rest of the catering staff were punctual, extremely on point and were in and out with minimal fuss. All told this was an excellent experience and would love to book them again.
My firm hired David and Paglia Hospitality Inc. to provide breakfast and lunch and a platter of goodies to leave with us for a company event for our employees. One of the partners was enamored with the idea of having a food truck as the caterer for our event. So begins this culinary experience. I asked for typical breakfast fare and he delivered: Homemade corned beef hash, ricotta pancakes, Brioche French toast, and breakfast sandwiches plus more. His food was delicious and was a wonderful way to start our day! In regards to lunch, he even delivered more: Parmesan chicken wings, Tuscan BBQ wings, fried bacon rice balls, lobster rolls, fish tacos, roasted brussel sprouts with Calabrian chili, 5 different sandwiches and 3 burgers. We also had cookies and brownies. He was on time. He was professional. Most importantly: He worked fast to feed 30 people, with every order made upon request! I highly recommend Paglia Hospitality: you will not be disappointed.
I hired Chef Doris Worthington and her team at "Now That Was A Great Party" to cater my sister's 75th surprise birthday party on Sunday, April 9, 2017. It was by far the best decision I could have made. I found their catering service through Thumb Tack, and took a chance to use the service, because all the coordination had to be done long distance; by telephone, text and Email. This catering service is Top Notch. They lived up to their word and their website advertisement. They were very professional and knowledgable about their customer's catering needs. Doris was able to offer several suggestions which helped to enhance the success of our party. Every detail was perfectly coordinated by the Caterer; from the table displays (which were beautiful), to the choice of colors to blend in with our color scheme; to perfecto food choices. The food was absolutely delicious. My sister was totally surprised and most pleased with the service and the food. We could not have asked for better service. We are very grateful to Chef Doris and her team at "Now That Was A Great Party". They certainly lived up to the business name. We had a great time and would not hesitate to use them again, and refer their service to others.
Rex was so lovely. He came early to set up. Brought some of his own gear. Dressed neatly and festive, Was so kind, helpful in all the cleanup too. And he even gave our caterers a hand in the kitchen, Would use Rex and his company again for sure.
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!
Everyone was very impressed, so much so that I expect JP will be hearing from our guests next time they need a caterer. We'd hire him again in a heartbeat.
I hired elemental catering for my husbands 30 birthday and I struck gold! There food and presentation was absolutely stunning. Everything had a fine dining touch to it. It was very professional and elegant. I am definitely going to hire them again next time I need a caterer. Everyone at the party keeps taking about the food, and many of my friends want to hire them for their parties. Thanks again :)
