Ellen, was a lot of fun to work with. We planned a cocktail party for 40-50 for my 45th Bday at the very last minute. She made over 500 pcs of appetizers, created a custom dish (which was delicous) at my request, and helped me plan the cocktails to be served. The upshot is the party was a success, the food was a hit and Ellen and her bartender/server Josh added to the party as I have an open kitchen. I would definitely work with her again and recommend her to friends.
I hired chef Chris for my husband birthday party dinner for 18 persons! Everything was more than perfect! Amazing food, great service, professionalism, adapted easily to all the requests
Marylyn & her staff helped me throw a successful cocktail party for about 10 people. Everything went smoothly from my initial phonecall with her, during which she helped plan my menu, to the wonderful food she provided. Marylyn arrived promptly at my home and went straight to work giving me directions for finishing some of the dishes and even added some decorative pieces to display on the platters of food. I received many compliments from my guests on the food and even had enough to provide them with doggie bags! Marylyn even followed up with an email and phone all to make sure everything went as planned. I would definitely recommend Juste Horsdoeuvres and would consider using them again
Charly well exceeded our high expectations! I surprised my husband by hiring Charly to cook a multi course meal for our anniversary. The menu he planned was delicious, creative, perfectly plated, and visually stunning. He showed up at our home perfectly organized, poised, and professional w most courses partially prepared and left a few hours later with two very impressed, happy, sated clients and our kitchen spotlessly clean. Charly also happens to be a very charming, nice guy in addition to being a fantastic fine foods chef. We would love to hire him again for another special event or dinner party.
We celebrated my husband's 50th birthday yesterday. Chef Lauren of Bacco Catered Events was, from our first contact, very professional, courteous, and had an immediate response to any questions or doubts. She was very flexible and very helpful during the planning, finding solution to any problems. We planned this cocktail party for 50 people in 1 month. The execution was amazing. The food was beautiful, delicious and plentiful. The staff was poised, worked non-stop and very attentive. I heard positive comments throughout the party from my guests, and several asked me where I found this amazing caterer and staff. We had a great party thanks to Chef Lauren and her great staff I recommend her with no hesitation.
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!
Chef Wayne was incredible. He was extremely responsive in the days leading up to my dinner party. He arrived on time, was super professional and the food was AMAZING. We had various allergies and food preferences in the group and he was flexible and happily accommodated everyone to make the evening a night to remember. Will definitely use him for future events!
I’m not one to write reviews but I feel compelled to given my overwhelmingly positive experience with Rich. I hired Rich to bartend and serve/clean for a 16-person dinner party. He also assisted the chef prepare a 16-person dinner and a 30-person lunch the subsequent day. His drinks were exceptional and I was very impressed with his professionalism and punctuality. All of my guests were talking about how amazing the drinks were (yet low calories!). The chef also had extremely positive things to say about working with Rich. I will definitely be hiring Rich for my next event.
Dan just cooked for and catered a cocktail party for my sons engagement on the roof of my building. I was very nervous since there would be such a mix of people and ages and Dan knocked it out of the park, the foot was outstanding and the service just as good. Working with Dan and his family was an absolute pleasure and they all understand exactly what it takes to make a party successful and deliver it in spades
Brittany Arrocho, the party planner was absolutely fabulous. We had a HS and College Graduation party for our two daughters. She came to our house and perfectly figured out all the rentals that I needed based on the space. We were in constant contact in regards to the menu - she was sweet, professional and very patient! She gave me great suggestions which worked out beautifully. The staff of three promptly came two hours before the party as scheduled and set up for the party. By the time our event started at 4, they were all set up and ready to go. They replenished the appetizers, main course and beverages as necessary. They got rid of used plates and cups when needed. They had a beautiful coffee and tea service that they set up and DeCicco’s made two beautiful cakes as well. When the party was getting close to ending they quietly packed the food up and cleaned without anyone even knowing. They left all the beverages out for remaining guests and the food and plates were in a place in case anyone got hungry again. They cleaned up and even mopped the floor when they left!!! All in all, a too-notch, excellent experience!!! Thank you for making it such a beautiful party!!!!!
I contacted Adolfo Silverio of Manjar Boutique Catering to help me with a cocktail party for 80 people last weekend. Because I was planning from a distant city, I was understandably nervous about getting everything arranged and accounted for. From the very first email, Adolfo put my fears to rest. He was very professional, answered all of my questions and made suggestions of things I had not even thought of. He did two walk throughs of the venue beforehand, suggested furniture arrangement, and had everything planned before the night of the party. The party itself was a breeze for me--the food was unique and delicious, the staff was right on top of things (as hostess, the staff made sure my wine glass stayed full--I never had to excuse myself to go to the bar), and everything flowed smoothly. The whole experience was exceptional, and the best part was Adolfo's timely communication--if he said he would phone me at 5 pm, the phone rang at 5 pm. All my emails were answered promptly, and as I stated before, this all went a long way towards making me feel like the party would be a great success--and it was!
Words don't do Nate justice. We hired him to do our Christmas cocktail party where we wanted passed hot dishes and Nate came through with flying colors. The food was delicious, well prepped, well thought out with perfect presentation. Nate was professional, courteous and had great energy. He was also meticulous. Left kitchen spotless. I cannot say enough about Nate. We will use him again and again!
We had a great cocktail party. The staff of High life was on time, professional and very friendly.

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 professional staff made the event painless and enjoyable (at-home cocktail party wedding reception for 68 people). They worked efficiently behind the scenes during the event so I never had to worry about food and beverage serving. Beautiful presentation, impeccable service with a smile, and most importantly - tasty! They set up 4 hours in advance and cleaned up our home exactly as they found it.
Highly Recommend. Awesome Birthday Party! Platter Matters catered my Dad's Birthday Party last year in October (60 people). Bernadett and Ivett were so easy to work with and their food was delicious! Their staff was extremely professional and very organized. They made the day stress free and spectacular! I would highly recommend Platter Matters for any event!
When it came to my drinks I had not a care in the world. The staff and owner were polite, well dressed, and friendly. They made sure that everyone's glasses stayed full all night. We had about 150 guest of plus wedding party and no one had a complaint.
I recently hired Cornbread26 to catered a cocktail party for 50 people. I was so impressed with food and overall service. They were able to meet all my needs helping make my event a true success. Thank you Cornbread26! Alan Kempske
Clarendon cuisines did my wedding reception last June. It was outdoors. Everything was perfect. Cocktail hour was food stations and it looked amazing. the chef did these hand carved fruit displays which I did not know he was going to do and it was a hit with my guests. Dinner was buffet and the food tasted amazing. I received great feedback from my guests. I'm so happy I used him.
JP catered a party for us of about 40 adults and 20 kids and we had a great experience working with him - highly recommend his services! He was responsive and flexible during the planning phase, able to modify his gameplan day-of when our rooftop venue got rained out :( and prepped and served the food efficiently, beautifully and notably, without needing anything from us as hosts, letting us truly enjoy the party. On top of all that, all the guests loved the food itself and several have inquired about contacting JP for their own events. I’m happy to make those connections because JP is truly a great chef and a consummate professional!
