There's only praise for a job well done by Ellen and her staff. The day I met Ellen she not only helped with planning out the perfect menu but it turns out she's got quite an eye for fashion and helped me pick out a beautiful dress and suit for my fiance. I saw she had talents in many other areas than running a booming catering business. She looked after and anticipated every detail that could have caused a problem and addressed it before hand. The main comment I heard through the day was "where did you find the caterer, her food is amazing." That was often from some very discerning guests that truly knew food. The Salmon was absolutely delicious and we had chosen a mushroom lasagna that was out of this world and the same can be said for the salads. I loved the little individual fruit cups also. Ellen runs her kitchen like a pro, shows up early and all you have to do is let her do her thing. Truly outstanding!!!

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.

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.

Kimberly was a perfect fit for our party. She was sub contracted by Matt (Santisi Catering) and we couldn't be more pleased. She was friendly and all our guests feel relaxed with a pleasant nature. She went beyond her bartending responsibilities by helping us clean dishes, clear garbage and straighten up our kitchen. We would definitely use Santisi Catering again and would love to have Kimberly return.

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

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.

Chef Charly is an amazing and talented chef. From the food presentation, menu selection to the taste buds all was perfect at my dinner. Having traveled around the world and eaten in many Michelin-starred restaurants and the best restaurants in NY, Chef Charly is at that level of talent and professionalism. I strongly recommend him for small or large group dinners. Looking forward to many more dinners with Chef Charly.

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.

I was looking for a caterer for my birthday party, a cocktail party with passed hors d'oeuvres for 35 people in my NYC apartment. I found Lauren (Bacco Catering) here on thumbtack, and decided to give her a call. I liked her immediately, and hiring her company turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made! Lauren was extremely professional and responsive throughout the entire process. She described her services accurately and was very patient and flexible while we decided on the menu and everything else. She was the only one of 4 caterers I spoke to who was willing to do a site visit prior to the party, which was very important to me. Her company is very service oriented, and it's obvious that she treats all of her clients VERY well whether its a big or small function. She delivered exactly what she promised, and my party was outstanding! Her food was delicious and beautifully presented. She put together an outstanding team for my party--they were EXTREMELY attentive to all of my guests, who are still talking about them! No one had an empty glass for long, and they were so polite and professional and operated seamlessly and efficiently, in a small space too. They cleaned up very well and left my apartment in excellent condition. Lauren and Bacco catering exceeded my expectations in every way. She is a true professional, and I would definitely hire Lauren/Bacco Catering again for future parties. I recommend them HIGHLY to anyone looking for a caterer!

Chris catered a dinner party at my apartment and everything was top notch. He arrived promptly, had enough time to get organized before the guests arrived, and looked very professional. The presentation of the food was as delicious as it tasted. My friend helped organize the menu and every course was more delicious than the next. I look forward to having him caterer more frequently, as well as teach cooking classes. Chris' professionalism and attentiveness was incredible. Thank you again for a wonderful evening!

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.

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!

What a pleasure it was to have Joe cater our wedding reception last weekend. We found LCI Caterers here on yelp and checked out his menu. We were instantly drawn to the variety of items represented in his offerings. We didn't want to go with the typical 'Italian' fare of many wedding receptions these days (no offense to those who choose that but we wanted variety). On Joe's menu there was Spanish, Southern, BBQ, Jamaican, and yes, Italian too as well as a zillion other things which is just what we wanted. Joe helped us configure balanced items that worked well together. My fiancé (now husband) and I went to meet Joe for a tasting. OH MY GOSH!!! The food was incredible! His peril was off the hook! So moist and flavorful. The BBQ beef brisket was tender and melted in our mouths. Penne a la vodka - yeah an Italian dish - was incredible- flavored just right and not overly creamy which is just perfect for my taste. We left with our mouths salivating for more. Our wedding day arrived and Joe's crew set everything up beautifully. We went with all the foods at our tasting as well as rice and beans, garlic mashed potatoes, grilled veggies, - oh - and the crab cakes for appetizers with a cilantro aioli - TO DIE FOR!!!!!! Just writing this review has me hungry for more!!! Joe himself showed up with his staff and they all did an amazing job taking care of us and our guests. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the experience provided by Joe's staff. The servers went above and beyond, making sure everyone had what they needed, picking up after guests were done, and being so pleasant and professional the entire time. Joe himself was a real sweetheart from beginning to end, working out our menu, being warm and friendly on the phone as well as in person, and even doing the honors of cutting our wedding cake and figuring out the coffee maker I rented from another company and had no idea how to use! We had a wonderful experience with Joe and his crew and would highly recommend him to anyone who wants tasty food, excellent customer service, and a warm friendly yet professional catering experience. Thumbs up all the way!

I own a shop in Hudson, NY called Valley Variety. We have a full kitchen where we host demos, classes, dinners and other chef events. Erika a reliable resource for planning and leading classes that combine nutrition and cooking for a healthy life. We've worked together on a number of classes, including a diabetic support group, a girls getaway picnic lunch, company team building dinner and other seasonal cooking themes. You can count on Erika to develop menus that are true to her healthy eating philosophy but are achievable for a home cook. Throughout the class time, Erika engages people to discuss their nutrition concerns and provides practical tips on preparing healthy and delicious meals at home. I've had great experiences working with Erika and look forward to working with her on more events.

Erika's smooth and reassuring approach to nutrition and cooking have served me well, as a client with medical nutritional challenges. She has also raised my confidence as an apprentice in the kitchen, so that I have cooked a successful Thanksgiving for the extended family for 3 years in a row, under her guidance. As a diner with friends I have enjoyed many fine and unique meals cooked seemingly effortlessly by Erika. What a gift to know a gourmet European chef who is also deeply aware of healthful nutrition.

To follow up the heavy eating, she created a beautiful and tasty menu of healthy bites to finish up the weekend, that were also unbelievable.!!

Best experience ever. We needed a bartender for a private birthday party I was organizing for my boss and took a chance on hiring HighLife. Not only did we get a bartender but we got Tyler himself - the owner of HighLife. He was amazing. Our chef we hired from a different company was a disaster and Tyler took it upon himself to help serve the meals, set the tables with wine glasses, pour water/wine throughout dinner, not to mention making the best margaritas on the planet. Extremely reasonable prices with top notch service that is so hard to find these days. Next party I organize I will simply call Tyler. Whether I need a bartender, chef, catering, etc - HighLife will be my only phone call. Thanks for everything!

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.

For our 25-guest Thanksgiving dinner (buffet-style), Peter was terrific, and his assistant, Monika, was too. The menu included interesting, well-received, and healthful variations on thanksgiving classics along with a lovely set of finger-food sized appetizers. Everyone enjoyed the upbeat and attentive service and the food itself. We, the hosts, enjoyed a well-planned, well-executed, hassle-free gathering. We were somewhat hesitant to engage someone who we found on the Internet, and because of the late date, we did not check additional references beyond those on Thumbtack. As it turned out, everything (including pricing) was exactly as promised. I would recommend Creative Table without hesitation. Thank you Peter and thank you Thumbtack!

As someone who is obsessed with food, I know good from mediocre, and mediocre from just plain bad. I am also someone has ZERO capacity to cook for more than, like, 1-2 people at a time…tops 4….but I happen to have a big extended family and group of friends that LOVES to entertain and BE entertained. So, on one hand it’s great because it gives me LOTS of excuses to eat wonderful food to my heart’s content (yay cheat days!); on the other hand, I have panic attacks just THINKING about preparing for one of these parties in terms of planning menus, figuring out what and how much stuff to make, shopping, prepping, cooking, cleaning, etc My heart is actually starting to race right now just WRITING about it!!! However, about 7 years ago, I found my secret weapon. I was at an event my old job was hosting, and the food was AMAZING and so creative and delicious. The theme was gourmet comfort food, and I’ll never forget it because I LOVE comfort food, and the dishes they served at the event were such cool, delicious, creative versions of some of my favorites. I was in the restroom at some point fixing my make-up, and a Chef Alana happened to be at the sink as well. We just started chatting and I liked her instantly. She has such a great energy that you will notice right away when you meet her (and you SHOULD meet her!) As it happened, I was in the beginning stages of planning a holiday party with my sister, and we were tying to decide what to do about food. When I mentioned this to Chef Alana, she immediately threw like 3 great potential ideas at me!!! We exchanged info and I contacted her the next day. We talked about the details of the party, the types of guests they would be there, particular tastes, requirements, special dietary needs of some of the guests, etc. and she said she'd whip up a proposal and get back to me. Two days later she sent me an EPIC menu, layout of how she and her staff would work, breakdown of her price and some great tips as well! I hired her the second I was finished reading....and the rest is history. Chef Alana and her staff have done every single event I have ever needed catered,since then, as well as many for people I have referred her to. On a totally opposite note from being an obsessed foodie and big entertainer/entertainee, I happen to also be a former figure competitor (a category in the bodybuilding world). Now, while I don’t seek out the healthiest dishes when planning a party or family gathering, Chef Alana’s food almost always can be considered “healthy” in that she only uses the freshest ingredients and every single element of every dish is homemade. She skimps on NOTHING in terms of quality, freshness and authenticity. But I digress. The real point I was about to make is that for the two years I was competing, I hired Chef Alana to do all of my meal prepping and delivery. We thoroughly discussed my needs and preferences — which were VERY picky and obnoxious — and she NAILED it every single week. The amount of time and frustration she saved me during that already-stressful time was PRICELESS. I refer all of my friends and family to Chef Alana and her Most Wanted Chef staff any chance I get. She is that good. I actually hate making recommendations to people on services and products, etc. in case things don’t go well and then I’d feel responsible. In all honesty, though, I NEVER hesitate to recommend Chef Alana/Most Wanted Chef, and I will continue to tout her services and UTILIZE her services every chance I get. Do yourself a favor if you have ANY need for a caterer or a private chef - reach out to Chef Alana, be prepared to be blown away, and see why she really is the Most Wanted Chef.

Chef David provided our family with a memorable Thanksgiving meal that was carefully crafted and perfectly executed. 20 guests, a mix of adults and children, enjoyed classic dishes like turkey and mashed potatoes as well as unique tastes like crab crake. Enough gushing from me... here are the 3 most important things I want future clients to know: 1) Chef David is a supreme professional - Super responsive up to the minute of delivery (and even after the meal), provided high quality product and was a general pleasure to work with. 2) Delicious down to the smallest detail - Not only were the apps, entrees and sides packed with deep flavor but the cranberry sauce and salad dressing received several compliments too. The crab cake was a standout but the entire meal was excellent. 3) Wash, Rinse, Repeat - We viewed catering Thanksgiving as a high stakes gamble. Chef David outperformed on all aspects and we plan to use his expertise again in the future.

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 would rate this five star if it didn't have two little accidents. One was we couldn't find a lighter when it was time to light the candles on the cake. Another was kind of a miscommunication, I took a cake for my son but then I myself forgot to take one so the catering team thought I had one already but I guess I was the only one who didn't have the cake as the birthday girl. I don't mind that much because I'm not a cake person and this type of mistake could probably only happen to me bc I think any other person would have requested it. So I wouldn't think it's the catering team's fault. Just letting you know if you are like me who doesn't crave for cakes and will be busy running around, you better get one first, haha. Overall I think the team did a great job. The manager arrived early, the food was delicious, the team was fast and professional, the plating was nice, the manager even helped to bring special bamboo plates for the cake, which is of great quality. I didn't taste much of the wine selection but it seems my friends were happy about them. The pricing was very reasonable and communication was easy. The only possible improvement I could think of is probably adding 2-3 courses. I would highly recommend this caterer to my friends.

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.

The food was great and David was wonderful. My picky 1 year old even ate his green beans! Everyone asked for his contact info to use him in the future

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!

RSVP is our go-to company to bartend at our store headquarters, a high end clothing company, typically held for our company's president, designers, and other VIP guests. Their bartenders are super friendly and attractive. They bring all of the drinks, very nice champagne and glasses. The staff was all very professional and served cosmos, martinis, and champagne for everyone quickly. We will continue to use them in the future.

I have had the great pleasure of being a customer and guest on several occasions of Cornbread26's catering services. Each time I was blown away by their outstanding customer service, food quality and flavor, and beautiful execution of the event's decor. Claude and Craig work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that their clients don't have to worry about a thing except for enjoying the experience and the food.

They catered my Christmas party in Las Vegas. No detail was left untouched. Most importantly, the food was so absolutely delicious.
