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!

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.

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!

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.

Just paid a deposit to book Melissa for my event next weekend. Yay!!!!!! This is the 1st time I have hired a professional chef to cater for our monthly dinner party and had a lot of questions and concerns before going into it. Melissa has been extremely prompt, professional and patient in addressing all of my issues and I am really looking forward to working with her. I am confident my event will be a great success and I will be sure to post some more reviews/photos thereafter.

We cannot say enough good things about SGS catering, especially Chef Grant. We had about 80 guests and a limited budget. But he was very accommodating in working with us. Great communications all the way till the day of our event. We also had some guests bring in food as a partial potluck. The chefs were really helpful and quick in organizing everything. We also had a vegetarian guest who inquired about vegetarian options before dinner was served. When dinner was ready an hour later, the server found her in the crowd and served her a vegetarian plate (we had a buffet style). I also made a two tiered cake myself for the event as I like to bake. As I was getting ready to assemble a tiered cake for the first time, Chef Grant pulled out his great decoration skills and made my cake look beautiful! We cannot say enough thank you for all the great help! Last but not the least, the food was amazing! The guests were all talking about how much they liked it. We are very happy there was leftovers so we can keep enjoying the food for days. We would definitely go back to them again if we ever need catering for any other events. Thank you again SGS Catering for everything!

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!

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.

We had Chef Dave here for my fiancee's 60th birthday. I admit I was nervous because I had never hired a personal chef and I didn't know Dave at all, other than the reviews I read. Dave put my fears to rest by his prompt replies, his friendly, yet professional demeanor and boy was I happy that he was early. Now for the food....we loved what he prepared. The crabcakes and Mozzarella Sushi delish and the chick and salmon entrees were fab!!! I'm not even a cheesecake lover and I couldn't get enough of that graham cracker cheesecake. And Chef Dave is personable, clean and has a wonderful attitude. I highly recommend him for any type of event or party and you will not be disappointed. Thanks Dave for making our night even more special!!

We had an amazing experience working with Chef Stef! We did appetizers for a small party and everything was perfect. The food was outstanding! And the team was so professional when setting up. Chef Stef was so easy to work with— I picked some appetizers from a set menu and then requested some others, and Chef was so accommodating and flexible. The price was also incredibly reasonable— especially for the quality! I highly recommend using Chef Stef and can’t wait to have him cater our next event. Thank you, Chef Stef!!!!!!

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.

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!

Excellent experience. Chef Nirva cooked a three course meal, Mediterranean inspired, for my birthday for myself and 9 guests. She made the hummus from scratch and the lamb meatballs were my favorite. The main course was a light yet flavorful rosemary chicken, followed by a chocolate dessert. Chef not only presented the dishes just like at a restaurant, but she explained to everyone how she made the dishes. Thanks so much for making my birthday a great experience!

John has worked for me on multiple occasions from large 100 person cocktail parties to 10 person formal dinners. He is an exquisite chef, who can cook any kind of food. His careful sourcing of food makes him truly exceptional. He is a joy to work with, humble, funny and great to have around. I would and do hire him over and over again.
