"Not only was the food absolutely delicious, but the separate cocktail hours/canapé options that we decided on at the Onteora Mountain House worked out so well! The adults loved the more sophisticated tastes as well as the crowd pleasers that the kids wolfed down – in fact, I saw more than a few adults raid the kids’ cocktail hour and walk away with big plates of pigs, coconut shrimp and those YUMMY pulled pork cups! Of course, you KNOW I adore the chicken meatballs, etc…the smoked trout on blini is now my new favorite!"
"Thank you for doing such an amazing job on Saturday - the food was delicious! Everyone raved and everything was cooked to perfection. Many thanks to you and your team."
"We're so happy we decided to have Bistro-to-go cater Jake's wedding party instead of doing it ourselves. Your team was friendly and efficient and best of all, the food was terrific. Glad we have some leftovers to enjoy."
"The food and service were beyond compare...you helped give my niece the best engagement celebration. I could not have asked for a single aspect of your service to be different...perfect in every way! "
"I want to take this opportunity to extend my gratitude to you for hosting the wonderful champagne brunch at your lovely Blue Mountain Bistro and for your generous in-kind contribution to my reelection campaign. You should know I received many compliments on your behalf about how delicious the food is, and what a great place it is to hold an event. I heartily agree, and I am sure your catering venture will prove to be highly successful."
"Thank you so much for the delicious rehearsal dinner and wedding food. I enjoyed all of it but was especially thrilled to eat the steaming hot mashed potatoes! I and many of the guests, really enjoyed the collard greens and jambalaya. We would have loved to have taken the extras home to enjoy later. Many many thanks for all of your work to make the wedding a memorable event."
"So, the wild wedding craze is over and we are writing our thank yous to all participants. One very special Thank You! goes out to you and Richard and your crew - you have all been so nice and friendly and helpful with everything and the food was fantastic ("epic" as my father called it.) Thanks to your great organization everything went super smooth. Please feel free to use us as reference for prospective customers."
"Universal kudos! The food was yummy and devoured (tho I was really happy to have some leftovers for my gang, who just left last nite!) All I added were my Malayasian coconut rice and a Caesar salad (my Richard's recipe). A good time was had by all. Thanks so much."
"We could not have received a better affair if we rented the most gorgeous room at The Waldorf Astoria"
"Thank you so much. The party was fantastic. We had perfect weather. Everyone raved about the food. It was delicious. Michael and Megan were so wonderful in the way they arranged everything and their sense of timing. I could really enjoy the party too. I would be delighted to give a recommendation any time but you probably don't need it since you have such a wonderful reputation. Please thank Richard and all your staff who prepared the food."
"Hello Mary Anne: just wanted you to know the food you provided for our party at Onteora Mountain House last night was DEEEE-licious and is getting rave reviews today. As always, it is a pleasure working with you and Bistro-to-go."
"A belated thanks for the wonderful food and energetic helpers who made my party such a success. Despite the rain, everything worked out perfectly and the food was much admired. I am glad we decided on the fillet of beef, which disappeared almost immediately, despite the professed vegetarians amongst us. But it was all delicious: the appetizers were beautifully displayed, thanks to the skills of the "ladies", the cakes were scrumptious , and I am sure you have acquired new fans."
"Thank you for your creation and execution of Emily and Ben's glorious wedding celebration. Your skill and competence in arranging and composing such large wedding was extremely impressive. I enjoyed working with you both in the process of planning this memorable day."
"Thank you, thank you, thank you! The food tasted delicious and it looked like a painting. Richard, Alan and I know that you are an artist in more ways than one. Michael and his assistant ran the whole show in a professional, pleasant, personable manner. Everyone enjoyed the party."
"Rain and shine it was a great wedding. The food was scrumptuous and everything looked beautiful. When you said I didn't need a wedding planner you were absolutely correct. Your personal services made the party a success. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything."
"Matt and I just got back from Italy on Sunday night, and of course we spent much of the time on our honeymoon reminiscing about the wedding and reception. When we got back,we were inundated with notes and calls from our guests, praising every aspect of the event, and in many cases they complimented the food, the catering, your staff. It all ran so smoothly and everyone had such a great time, including Matt and myself. I just wanted to let you know that you deserve huge thanks for helping make our wedding such a success. We can't thank you enough and we are so grateful for your professionalism, calm and culinary expertise. Each characteristic contributed immensely to what in hindsight we both agree was the happiest moment of our lives."
"I can't thank you enough for your help in making my niece's engagement celebration so memorable. From the moment you helped us plan the menu until the last dish was carefully washed and put away your professionalism has been unsurpassed. The guests raved about the food, the servers were efficient and hard-working, and every detail was impeccable. We will never try another caterer...because your service is the ultimate!"
"The party was spectacular - your food, staff and service were vital to it! We were very pleased with your contribution to the event - thank you so much. The food was beautiful and perfect, the staff were fantastic. The torrential rain and floods added crazy and extremely muddy elements to the night and you were all so amazing through this. Thanks for keeping it dry and together. We couldn't have done this without each of you. We wish you many more fun and successful parties this season!"
