Charly was brilliant! My husband surprised me with a private chef for our first anniversary dinner and Charly did not disappoint. He made delicious food in our tiny Brooklyn apartment. Already making plans to hire him again.

Bad boy celebrity chef Chris Nirschell is a rising star! My co-hostess and I hired Chris to be the personal chef for a small very select social group in NYC. The food was delectable, mouth watering and fabulous! His butternut squash? Puree based, no cream? It was wonderful. We also had a wonderful fall harvest salad and wild caught salmon as the entree. All (again) simply mouth watering! The last course was a mango fosters. Almond gelato and homemade whipped cream. Sweet and light. We had a wine pairing with all four courses. Chris plated the meal with artistry; he announced and described each course and was knowledgeable about the wine with which we paired each course. We will use him again. I hope our group is grandfathered into his reasonable rates for the future!! Thank you Chef Chris!

What a treat to find Chef Lauren and Bacco catering. This was our first experience with Lauren and her delightful staff but we are already coming up with excuses to hire them again. Chef Lauren worked with us to personalize the menu for my partner’s milestone birthday celebration and provided a full service dinner for 40 guests in our apartment with compelling warmth, confidence, and the utmost professionalism. The food was mouthwatering from the first tantalizing passed hors d'oeuvres all the way to the desserts which, by the way, included triple chocolate brownies with raspberries on the side. Everything was perfectly flavored; clearly prepared with great care and the finest ingredients; and presented beautifully. We are over the moon and our guests haven’t stopped talking about the flavorful food and wonderful service. On top of that, our kitchen was left sparkling clean and there was an awesome stash of irresistible leftovers waiting for us in the fridge to help keep the memory of an already unforgettable and delicious evening alive for just a little while longer. Professional, on time, everything was as promised and beyond.

This was last minute, and I haven't had better from chefs who had days to prepare. The menu was well suited to the occasion, the presentation was elegant and the taste good the the last bite. Thanks Wayne

From the very start, Chef Tamara and partner Josh provided outstanding customer service! Presentation for the tasting was mouth watering and every bit a delectable treat. Chef Tamara is a true talent and a joy to collaborate with. The serving staff were very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend Amoraco!

Nate and his team did an amazing job catering my son's first birthday at my home. My family is very particular about food and the fact that they were raving about it speaks very highly of his work. Nate is a true professional chef and passionate about his work. For this party, I wanted to be able to enjoy the event and concentrate on my son. Nate's team was attentive to our guests, had beautiful plater presentations, a unique menu, and cleaned up the kitchen so there was no work on my part. We also had a bartender that took care of all the drinks. My husband I highly recommend the Natwerks team!

When you hire Manjar you know your event is in excellent hands! Their exquisite taste and attention to details has made our "tight budgets" into a beautiful celebration of food, decor, and specialty mocktail & cocktails. His team treats each event as if you are part of their family. Over the last 7months, I have had the pleasure of working with their event team & chefs on at least 10 events, including new product launches, corporate, wedding, and celebratory events in NJ private estates, galleries, retail environments & nyc apartments. The guests rave about the service & food. At the most recent event, my client was very demanding, last minute, with specific dietary needs... Manjar surpassed my expectations. I would recommend them for any event from a french service sit-down dinner, graduation celebration, to a summer garden cocktail party. Trust them with what you need and you will not be disappointed! Great events, all of the details attended to, and great results so you can enjoy your own event!

I hired Erika for a custom home cooking lesson as a Christmas gift for my girlfriend and she certainly lived up to the billing as a 5 star rated chef/instructor. From scheduling to preparing the menu and lesson to being exceedingly personable and helpful in our little kitchen, Erika was extremely professional and easy to work with from beginning to end. I would highly recommend Erika to anyone looking for either a personal chef or in-house cooking lesson. She is knowledgable about a wide range of food and cooking techniques, flexible with menu choices, a friendly and outgoing presence in the kitchen, and most importantly, she is a tremendous chef! We learned a ton, had a great time, and had plenty of leftovers that we enjoyed for a week afterwards.

We had a wonderful dinner for 10 prepared by Chef Martin this weekend. The food was absolutely fantastic and we still can’t believe all of the work he did on his own. The presentation was beautiful. The whole evening ran perfectly, every course was delicious and the kitchen was spotless when he left. He is a pleasure to work with and we hope to host another evening again with him soon.

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!

Everything was delicious and the service was great; chef Oscar is super professional and a real pleasure. The guests were thrilled. My only disappointment was that the team did not bring enough serving plates and therefore randomly used ours. Also, while the food was delicious there was a strong smoke smell on the beginning which I would have liked to avoid!

Tara is an outstanding chef! Her food is well thought out to suit the needs for your special event. It is delicious and artfully presented from her own recipes. Tara creates a one of a kind, personalized menu. She listens to what your desires are for your party and works with you to achieve a fabulous result! The food is well timed enabling your event to run smoothly and on time. She is gracious and more than willing to intermingle with your guests if that is your wish. Her staff is excellent and very well presented. The entire operations was flawless and extremely professional! I had a four course dinner party for ten people at my home. Tara paired wines for each course which were excellent choices. Everything was so fresh and exquisite! Tara and her staff left my kitchen immaculate with everything in its place. Each one of my guests is now raving about Tara Ciannella and her entire operation!

I hired the chef to go to my daughter Apt. for a special birthday and wedding Anniversary and she said the experience was great and the chef was so nice and professional she would definitely refer him to anyone who wants to have a private chef. My dealing with him to get organize with surprising my daughter was also great. Thank You chef Stinnett.

I couldn't have been happier with my experience with Alana at Most Wanted Chef. She created a wonderful menu for my dinner party in honor of my mother's 70th birthday. The food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. She was incredibly professional, friendly and made everything look effortless. It was truly a pleasure to work with her and I look forward to using her again soon. She makes entertaining at home incredibly easy, graceful and fun. I would definitely recommend her for your next party.

My grilfriend and I attened one of Via Melissa cooking events here in Huntington NY. It was a great night out learning a few new things about the foods we were going to eat. Who would have thought oats as bread crumb on chicken. It was very good. Since her event I have implemented a thing or two into my cooking. Melissa deffently gives you more awareness of the food you eat and their nutritional value. I highly recommend one of her events .

We were so happy to have chosen Chef Anne to cater our Mom's 90th Birthday Party. From my first conversation with her to follow up email she was helpful professional and provided first rate service. Chef Anne made recommendations as well as guided me thru selecting Glueten Free etc type dietary concerns. I felt like Ive known her for years as she is so easy to work with, now I have a friend in the catering business. We had many positive comments how delicious everything was and I would recommend her and will be happy to call her again.

The chefs are most accomodating to my dietary needs all the while making me feel like I'm not missing out on the foods I love. I was served a delicious and completely Vegan Mexican inspired dip that was seasoned perfectly and was creamy and "meaty". Their food was amazing!
