I would highly recommend Chef Tony to anyone looking for a unique and wonderful dining experience. I surprised my wife with a birthday weekend getaway for herself and 5 of her friends. They all have very unique food needs and preferences varying from food allergies to vegan and just about everything in between. They also all have a taste for high quality, well cooked food. I expressed to Chef Tony all the needs of the dietary my wife and her friends as well as all of my concerns. He put my concerns at ease. The event as to take place in a hotel suite that I had reserved for the ladies. The day before the scheduled event, the hotel told they that they had changed their mind and I could not have Chef Tony cook in their hotel, but would need to use their caterer if I wanted to have such an event. At the very last moment I had to inform Chef Tony of a change in location because of this hotels last minute policy change. Chef Tony readily switched the event to the new location without a complaint or a hitch. The ladies had a 5 course meal with wine pairings for each course. I have heard nothing but great reviews from each of the ladies about their experience. Although we are currently in the midst of a record breaking low temperature winter here in PA, the women were blown away by how fresh and flavorful the fruits and vegetables were in each course. They raved about the fresh crab and perfectly cooked lobster he had prepared for them. One of my wife's friends had an additional food allergy that I was unaware of and therefore had not communicated to Chef Tony. He served a soup that she could not eat. Chef Tony took the soup away and without hesitation, prepared an entirely new entree, plated, and served it to her before the other women finished her soup. And she reports that her new entree was so tasty and well prepared she could not believe that it was not something that he had previously planned on cooking for them. Finally, the ladies were all grateful to learn a great deal about multiple wines and wine pairing. They all ended the evening full and completely satisfied and raving about their dining experience with Chef Tony. In any future engagements that I have requiring a chef, I will be sure to contact Chef Tony without a doubt!

Matt was great for my event. From the start, he was very responsive and helped provide the list of what to buy. He also alleviated some of the planning by catering the appetizers which made it super helpful. We hired 1 server and 1 bartender-- which we definitely should've hired one more person for the amount of guests we had-- but the two were super helpful. Even when it was down pouring, Matt continued to help and serve guests. I would absolutely recommend Matt. If you are even thinking about having servers at your event, definitely go with Santisi Catering!

Kim was wonderful to work with. To say she was flexible is an understatement. She was so accommodating and willing to go the extra mile to make your event exactly the way you want it. Grill Chef Chaz was a wonderful grill chef who grilled for three & 1/2 hrs straight keeping the food flowing smoothly with no bottlenecking. He was so personable and a pleasure to have at the party. My guests were so pleased they asked for the caterers card. I whole heatedly recommend they're services!

We really liked S&B's set up at our wedding to make it a beautiful reception! The staff were friendly and very professional. Sodiah was especially flexible with the plans and easy to work with which helped to make the day go perfectly. The food was also great! We are thankful that they were our caterers and would recommend them to others.

I give two thumbs up for Enjoi Catering! I made a last minute decision to throw an Anniversary Party For My In-laws and Enjoi Catering came through for me and I was able to concentrate on my guest list and decorations. I gave them my request and They handled everything else. I was even able to sample my menu. My Menu consisted of Lamb Chops, Asparagus, Lobster Maccaroni, Crab Cakes and Shrimp Salad. Everything was delicious. With the Holidays coming up I'll definitely be in touch with Enjoi Catering. 👍👍

I booked John for my wedding reception there was no buffet or plate just heavy apps and John did an awesome job. There was 180 people and everyone was completely satisfied. The team was great we had a pretty large venue and they made sure every corner was reached so that way ever guest was served. So many of my guest were curious about where I found such an amazing caterer and I did not hesitate to pass along Johns information. John really cooks his food with love and pays attention to every detail. Thank you again Elite Flavors Catering you definitely made our day much more special. John was very generous and accommodating to my inquisitive great grandmother, he answered all her questions and even served her plate personally. Again thank you so much and I look forward to working with you on the future!

Good experience.. Food arrived in time, food was still hot (we're located an hour away). My staff thought the food was very good (we chose the chicken parm, ribs, shrimp scampi, and salmon filet along with some sides)... The brownies were great, cookies a bit on the hard side. We'd use this caterer again.

Prompt and courteous responses from the staff. Very responsive to needs. Servers were not as experienced as those from other caterers I've used, but their enthusiasm helped cover the inexperience.

Tony recently catered a bridal shower for my daughter and everything from soup to nuts was top rate. Tony has catered many parties for me from business dinners to graduation parties and I can count on him to personally handle all the details.He and his staff work very hard to make sure your event is one to remember.

I ordered a variety of salads, sandwiches, deviled eggs, fruit and vegetable trays. All the food was very fresh and well prepared. Plenty of food to go around and still had leftovers to send home with our guests. Very professional!
