My company hired Ellen to prepare a breakfast spread for a client meeting we were having last week, 20 people total. Ellen was fantastic, she went above and beyond our expectations and the food she served was delicious. Everyone was very happy with how it turned out, we would absolutely recommend Ellen for any personal chef needs!

My husband gave me a great 50th birthday party gift of a personal chef to have a summer evening handled by Chuck with 9 of my friends. The food was fantastic, presented well and my friends raved! What I loved most was how easy Chuck was to work with and how accommodating he was. On time, prepared and best part was my kitchen and home were left in tip top shape. We were so happy- Chuck and his wife Maria were attentive yet unobtrusive at the same time. I absolutely loved my evening and would have Chuck come back for more parties!

I hired Chris to prepare a 3 course meal plus passed apps and dessert for an intimate gathering in my home this past weekend. This was my first time hiring a chef for a personal event and it couldn't have gone better. Chris is professional, yet engaging and the food was fresh and delicious. The experience was further enhanced by the personalized service and wine pairing suggestions provided by Roman. Chris brought everything he needed with him and you could eat off the floor by the time he left. Chris and Roman also worked wonders my meager dinnerware and serving utensil options (note to self to fix that for future parties). As a special touch, Chris even whipped up some homemade mac and cheese for our younger guests. I will absolutely hire Chris and again and if you are smart - you will too.

Charly is a fantastic chef! I hired him to prepared a 5 course brunch for my wife and I on Mother's Day. He sent a proposed menu and then worked with us to customize it to our preferences. The food was absolutely delicious! He was friendly, professional and on time. I would definitely hire Charly again for the next special occasion and strongly recommend him to anyone thinking of hiring a personal chef. Thanks 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.

Tamara is simply AMAZING! She is not only an extremely capable and very talented chef, but is also a consummate professional. She knew exactly the type of food that would lend itself to our organization and the event. We had nothing to worry about. Tamara catered a 300 person event for us and people are still raving about her delicious and creative food items. She is a joy to work with and helped make our Benefit an incredible success. Thank you Tamara!

From planning the menu to executing the dinner and service, Chef Daniel was very accommodating and professional. His chef services were exactly what I was looking for to add a special touch to my sister's bachelorette weekend. My guests and I continue to rave about the food!

Do you want to know the definition of Excellence? Hire Luisa c/o De Cicco's Event Planning! I have never worked with a more professional, friendly company. Luisa has a way of catering to her client's and making them feel like they're at the top of her priority list. If you need her, drop her an E-mail and she IMMEDIATELY gets back to you. Need a personal Chef to teach you how to cook? Luisa can connect you with top of the line quality professional's that KNOW what they're doing in the kitchen. I'm currently taking lesson's from her Chef and I went from being a novice who's food was either bland, burnt and completely un-edible, to a person who can now chop, dice and make a meal so good, my family calls me asking me to cook for them again. Luisa and her staff are so friendly, so welcoming and very attentive to the needs of the client. Luisa has done a fine job in picking her staff and I’m extremely happy I hired her company because it was worth every penny.

EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME! I was celebrating my 10 year wedding anniversary and I wanted to surprise my wife with a private chef. I have a hard time keeping a secret from my wife but everything worked out perfectly. Chef Gregory was prompt and the food was delicious. The presentation of his food was off the chart! He prepared my favorite dish and my wife's favorite dish. The portions were great and we had enough for the next day to enjoy. I definitely look forward to hiring him again.

It was splendid. Chef Stenneth made the party. Everyone was raving about the food, the professionalism, the decor, and of course, the bartender -- all of which Private Chef Services provided. His team was tight and deft in their service. He gave me a taste testing a week before the party right at my apartment and scoped out the location beforehand so that he knew what to bring and expect. He brought backup materials and contingency cooking paraphernalia in the case of an unforeseen event. I was celebrator and the hapless party organizer, yet Chef made it the pieces move effortlessly when I could not. He is more than just a private dining service. He is more than a turn-key food provider. Chef Stenneth is the missing piece to your next event.

Melissa was great. We had an in-depth conversation up front about our dietary restrictions including a shellfish allergy, a gluten sensitivity, and a dairy sensitivity within our party. Overall, we were aiming for a vegan meal. She worked with us and gave us multiple suggestions on dinner options based on our likes and dislikes. She even came by the house to provide samples of her dishes before the event. The night of the event, she did a great job executing appetizers, dinner, and dessert. The food was delicious and she left our kitchen in better shape than she found. I highly recommend Melissa as your next personal chef!

Chef was great to work with. Brought me and my wife great suggestions. It felt like a team effort when trying to create a menu for our anniversary party. He was at our home early to get started. He had consideration with our space, when he was done, everything was left back to the way it was. He made our guests feel like they were at 5 star restaurant. Definitely recommend!

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!

Matt was an amazing Chef Instructor for my daughter's 7th birthday! Matt was on time, professional, and a lot of fun! He has a real talent for working with kids and dealing with adults. Matt made himself right at home in my kitchen and was a pleasure to engage with. Most importantly he was able to keep a group of 6, 7 year olds completely engaged and happy. I heard him answering their questions like, "how old are you" and other age appropriate questions with a great sense of humor. Matt taught the girls to make pasta from scratch and then helped them to put it through the pasta maker and finally to enjoy the meal they created with two homemade sauces he put together at the same time! If you are looking for a great learning experience for kids, or adults, I highly recommend Matt!
