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 Santisi Bartending to bartend my engagement party. The party was at a catering call, but I wanted a bartender with more experience then the bartenders they had on staff. Matt did not disappoint. He helped suggest drinks, provided martini glasses, and kept the guest happy all night. Will definitely hire 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.

Chris prepared a really great dinner for a party of 12 at our apartment for my husband's 30th. The food was absolutely delicious and creative. Overall, it was all great but there were a few areas of improvement; it was a little surprising that he didn't bring with him his own knives and that the bartender he used didn't bring any equipment with him (shaker, mixer, etc.)which we were told he'd be bringing. With that said, this was not a deal breaker for us as the food was delicious, creatively prepared on site, and presented well to all our guests.

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.

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!

Tamara catered an in-store cocktail party for 70 people/ 2.5 hours. We were very impressed with all aspects of the booking and service. She gave us a fantastic menu to choose from and worked within our budget and wants even going above and beyond by providing additional menu options we did not request. Tamara was able to work in a small space and the entire event was seamless - I highly recommend Tamara for your catering needs.

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

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!

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!

Joe and his staff catered my Brooklyn wedding. The food was delicious! My guests can't stop talking about the wonderful variety and quality of the cocktail hour and the dinner. LCI Caterers is beyond fairly priced and Joe even got me in touch with a great rental company for my china and glassware. The staff was amaizingly attentive. My guests' glasses were never empty and they did a wonderful job of bussing tables. They even did the room flip between ceremony and reception and cleaned up and broke down tables at the end of the night even though they weren't the ones who brought the tables. The champagne was perfeclty timed out for toasting and everything on the catering end ran smoothly and was extremely organized. I can't rave about Joe and his amazing staff enough! They helped me have the wedding of my dreams!

Chef Martin, his delicious food, warm disposition, meticulous attention to detail and easygoing charm were probably the best part of our wedding day. Right from the start we knew he would make our day perfect in every way. He immediately understood our needs, helped us find the best solutions and always had a positive attitude and a jovial ease. The food was perfect and his staff was lovely and professional. We'd love to work with him again some time soon and are pleased to recommend him for any of your event/party catering needs.

We cannot begin to explain what a great Caterer this is. We were having a problem finding a caterer for our Holiday Party. Laura came to our rescue! Her staff was amazing and the food, OMG! I have never seen so many people go back for so many seconds! Her staff is attentive, personable and efficient. Laura is an amazing chef with great ideas and the skills to go along with it. Our guests could not compliment the entire staff enough. I will use them again in a heartbeat - and so should anyone else looking to hire a caterer. BTW - go with the crepe station!

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!

Chef David was absolutely fabulous at my dinner party of 6 people. Everyone loved the food from the appetizers all the way to the dessert. He shopped, cooked, served, explained each dish and cleaned up. It was wonderful to host a party and not have to do anything but enjoy my guests. I will absolutely use him again and highly recommend him.

Taste our Legacy, (Yvonne Chambers) catered a cocktail party at my apt. for 50 people on short notice. Party was a winner and food was, I believe, the starred attraction. There was plenty of it, beautifully presented and outrageously delicious. A very able and friendly staff work with ms. C to create a very pleasant atmosphere extending out into the party and the guests, as well.
