Marylyn, her partner Neal, and her waitstaff catered our wedding on October 5th of 2018 in Brooklyn, NY and it turned out great. In the months leading up to our wedding, Marylyn was extremely responsive and professional, helping guide us through this tumultuous period called "wedding planning"! She provided us with a comprehensive list of Hors D´Oeuvres, Main Courses, and Deserts, all of which were reasonably priced and generous in terms of the portion. She also helped us source some of the rentals and facilitate the communication with the 3rd party vendors. Finally on our wedding day everything went off without a hitch, food was great, staff were very professional, and we were in extremely good hands. My wife and I consider ourselves quite lucky for having chosen such a great vendor to cater our wedding, and would recommend Marylyn and her team to anyone looking for delicious food, tremendous service, and most importantly a great value!

Epic BBQ Wedding Reception The full menu and catering service of Just Hors D'Oeuvres goes way beyond the appetizers. With their vast selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts, its hard to imagine a combination which cannot more than please the most demanding of guests. Their grilled lamb, skirt steak and beef tenderloin exceeded high quality expectations and only unsolicited complements were received from many of the guests. The entire staff worked tirelessly for eight hours serving have passed Hors douerves, creating inventive mixed drinks, grilling and organizing the delicious buffet and desserts. The caterers are focused and busy with many events both large and small so just keep this in mind when trying to determine menu selection and coordinating with the various other vendors working your event

This team provided a custom made traditional west African meal for my father's surprise 70th birthday party. Everyone raved about the food and the excellent service. People continued to ask about where I found them well into the next day. Sensing my nervousness, the entire team made it a seamless process for me upon arrival. I was provided with full catering as well as bartending service. They are definitely a group I'll use again for my upcoming 35th birthday party this summer. I cannot thank them enough for a wonderful event!

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!

I hired Natwerks Catering to prepare and cook the food for my Christmas Eve party at my home. The food preparation was well thought out and executed to perfection. My guests went home happy and looking forward to my next event because they know I will be hiring Chef Nate and Natwerks Catering again.

Chef catered a large family gathering (24 people with 6 kids) in a home we rented in the hamptons. He and his staff were amazing. They were professional, fun to work with, and easy to work with as well! The food was delicious. He even created a cocktail of "the day" that was a smashing success! (+ he brought a bartender to help) I originally went with Chef Plum because when I put the bid out for the event Chef had the most creative ideas for menu, drinks and was great to talk to on the phone. I knew from the start that he'd be easy to work with. From day 1 to the day of the event, he was amazing. Always responsive, helpful and took a ton off our "plate" as he helped organize rentals, glassware, and a lot of other details. This was an amazing event thanks to chef and his team. I highly recommend him!!

I can't say enough about Chef Plum and his sous chef, Adam. They prepared a 7 course tasting and wine pairing for us and it was absolutely wonderful. Not only was the food delicious, clean, seasonal, local and beautifully plated, Chef's serving of each course was competed with a thorough detailing of the food, how it was prepared, why it was chosen and a lovely description of the wine accompanying it. Our meal with him transcended a simple dinner, and really was an extraordinary experience. We would 150% recommend him to any and all food lovers, those who love to smile and laugh and anyone who seeks to enjoy fine dining in the comforts of their home. We can not wait to have the opportunity to pair with him again. A+++!!!!

We hired Chef Stef to cater our office holiday party (around 9 people). His prices were reasonable. He was prompt and very responsive to any communication. He arrived early to set-up and was very friendly. The food was great! We got chicken marsala, salmon, salads, rice, vegetables and sandwiches. All the food was fresh and delicious. I would recommend his services and will use him again in the future.

FANTASTIC! I hired Cultivated Tastes to cater my birthday party for approximately 20 people at my house and both Chef Gerry and Kendall exceeded our expectations in every way! I started planning the event with Cultivated Tastes a few months prior to the event and they were very helpful with food suggestions and other ideas to make sure this party was going to be a success - and it was!! Chef Gerry and Kendall were very professional and friendly. The quality of food and service was definitely 5 STAR!! We decided on having passed hors d'oeuvres and stationed platters. The food was beyond delicious and all my guests and I raved about every dish!! I absolutely loved having Chef Gerry and Kendall cater my party and I will definitely be hiring them again. Thank you Cultivated Tastes!!!

My pal and I hired Kendall and Gerry to cater our husbands' joint 50th birthday party in Bedford in 2008, to rave reviews from guests. They've since catered two graduation parties for me and another 50th for a friend. Such wonderful attention to detail, from designing signature cocktails to selecting a personalized menu with the freshest locally sourced food. They make sure that not only the guest of honor and guests had a good time, but the hosts as well. Most impressive to me--Kendall joined her staff in surprising our son at his ballgame themed graduation party wearing Yankees tees and caps--despite being Red Sox fans themselves. :-) Every event they've catered has been lovely from start to finish. I cannot recommend highly enough!

Hired Cultivated Tastes (Gerry & Kendall Herrfurth) twice, once for our son's baby shower and once for his baptism. They were absolutely outstanding. Service was professional, on time and all around top notch. They catered both stationary and passed hordourves, in our home, along with creative and very tasty speciality drinks. Communication before each event was also fantastic. Of course, the food was out-of-this world amazing. All of the guests commented on what wonderful events we've had at our home - due in no small part to Gerry and Kendall. I would and will hire them again.

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.

I cannot recommend Marianne highly enough. Not only was the wedding catering wonderful and delicious, but her attention to detail, creativity, flexibility, and consistent communication made the entire process a joy. Marianne worked with us to design a comprehensive and original menu that worked with our tastes, our budget, and the theme of our event (1930's french lawn party). Not only that, but she is charming, friendly, and goes far above and beyond to help plan details that we, the bride and groom, were so happy to have someone else think of. In the process she became a creative collaborator and a friend. We are incredibly grateful to have found her here on Thumbtack. If you're doing an event in the area (especially at the Gallaher or Lockwood estates!) do yourself a favor and hire Marianne. Let her do her thing and feel secure knowing it will be great!

I would strongly recommend Marianne Wilson's catering. Marianne catered our son's wedding and her food, (and all her help) made the event. We all still talking about the medallions of beef tenderloin and lobster with lemon sauce in phyllo cups. The 3 tier wedding cake with cascading orchards was exquisite and absolutely delicious. Without asking Marianne kept aside a small fourth tier of cake for the couple to save for their 1 year anniversary. We were offered tastings of the food to help make our selections and Marianne always had time for any questions I had. In addition her staff was exceptional.

Marianne was recommended to me by a friend who had been to a party she catered. Based on her experience, I called Marianne. It was a match made in heaven!! She catered our 25th anniversary party, at our home. She and her staff made sure the evening was perfect! Delicious food, and the most beautiful anniversary cake. Several years later Marianne was back to cater my daughter's graduation party in our backyard. Perfection again. You cannot go wrong when you call Marianne Wilson!!

Ms. bartholomew's love of food and cooking food reflect in her very meticulous way of preparing all food from appetizers to desserts. She prepared all the food for my small party of twenty five for my son's birthday party. Everyone wanted to know who i catered from and of course gave Mrs. B's name. the food is prepared under sanitary conditions and it is farm to table fresh. i was especially impressed with the way Mrs. B asked my input for each course and what i would like served and any other ideas. She is extremely competent and definitely knows her way around the kitchen. She will be doing my next catering job for work and the neighborhood Christmas party. Rock on Gerry

There is probably nothing more that I could possibly add to everyone's positive reviews about The Clubhouse at Patriot Hills. However, I will talk about my/our own personal experience there. I have been to many events held here, as well as one I ran for my son's Tricky Tray for school in March of 2015. The Staff from beginning to end was phenomenal. Then May 6th, 2015, John and I got engaged. We were looking to have an outdoor wedding, at home, just a few months later. With being busy with our kids, time just flew and there was no way we can plan something like that. John then suggested that we speak to Gina Kelly about having our wedding at The Clubhouse at Patriot Hills since I had raved about it in my prior experience with them. He said, " you already know that we will be in GREAT hands. The food and service is top notch". Without hesitation, I contacted Gina immediately. In less than four to five months, we planned to have our ceremony there followed by an amazing Cocktail Reception on May 6, 2016. We did NOT want the traditional wedding. John and I wanted continuous food and music, where our children and our guests, felt as if it was one BIG party. With that being said, we got EXACTLY what we wanted. We were to have our ceremony on the beautiful patio, but mother nature did not work out for us. We decided to not take the risk and that morning, chose to have the ceremony indoors, which was just as beautiful, in front of the picture window, overlooking the grounds. People were still able to hang out outside during the evening as the rain held off, although a little chilly. I can not say enough about The Clubhouse at Patriot Hills, Inn Credible Caterers, Gina Kelly, our Maitre D (Mary), our bartenders, including Jenn Aherne and all the other wonderful Staff there. The food and service are MOST certainly top notch and you will not be disappointed if you choose to have your wedding or any event there. Even though it's been only 2.5 weeks, our guests have been commenting on what a beautiful wedding we had and can NOT stop raving about the food. They LOVED what we had chosen to do for the evening. Everything was perfect and with that, we thank you, again, for helping us make one of our most important memories of blending or family together, one of the MOST unforgettable nights for us all. XO

Hired them for our daughter's wedding at the Brotherhood winery last year. They stand up to their name "Incredible". How they were able to do what they did without a kitchen is just amazing. Frank and his staff went above and beyond and are true professionals. We didn't have to worry about a thing, they took care of everything. I would not hesitate to hire them again. We are so grateful we hired them.

Rob and his staff were amazing to work with from start to finish. We had 125 people at our wedding on a horse farm with little to no space for him to work. And yet, he delivered delicious food, excellent service and, all in all, he helped us create an absolutely amazing wedding! From our first email, to the day of, Rob was quick to respond and worked diligently to make sure we got everything we wanted. We have crazy work schedules and he always made a point to come to us for meetings and even for our tasting! Which was an awesome experience in and of itself. Rob creates amazing food and worked with us to create a delicious menu that all of our guests are still raving about. In some ways, our wedding was a caterer's nightmare. But Rob never flinched (at least not around us...lol) and when all was said and done, Rob and his staff delivered a dream come true! Thank you Rob and the staff at Rob's Kitchen Caravan!

Rob did an excellent job catering our black tie wedding! He was extremely professional and organized and was really thoughtful in helping us achieve the type of wedding catering we wanted. Rob is very humble about his background in the catering business, but you can tell he is very well experienced in the catering industry. We loved him so much that we hired him for our wedding brunch the day after the wedding as well. He does not advertise enough his ability to do all types of weddings from casual to high end. I would highly recommend Rob to anyone else thinking of doing a wedding. Weddings can be very stressful but Rob had the right staff and coordination to pull everything we needed him for off well!
