We wanted to have a great party, and had no connections to a caterer. Boy, did we hit a homer when we found Tamara. We described the atmosphere, and she created it. Her food was delicious, everyone had a blast. She is so easy to work with, and a professional in her service. Her helpers were upbeat and everyone was on point. Would use her again in a heartbeat.
Working with Tamara was terrific. She offered me several different options and helped with a referral for wine to be delivered. She also provided a bartender who helped set up and clean up after. Sliders were delicious as were shrimp dish and cheese trays with fruit. Empanadas both chicken and vegetarian were a big hit as were fresh baked brownies. I thought the chicken curry satays could have been a bit spicier and flavorful. All else was Fabulous and I would use her again and highly recommend her service. Thank you very much. Ken
Food was delicious, and Tamara was able to do it last minute, short turn around. Also understood exactly what we wanted and was able to get it set up with pretty much no time!
My experience with Tamara and Amoraco was nothing short of outstanding. I had 100 guests for my birthday. The food was amazing and Tamara and her staff beyond accommodating. I would rehire every time.
Tamara and her staff were true professionals and the food was outstanding. I had a birthday party for about 30 people and everyone raved about the food and service. She was extremely accommodating and friendly. I highly recommend Amoraco catering!
We are still enjoying the afterglow of our party and your fabulous food and service. You were a hit. Thanks so much to you, Lily and Tara (hope a remembered their names correctly), for making it such a great evening. We are looking forward to planning another party with you.
Tamara and her team recently catered my sister's 30th Birthday Party. No only was the food out of this world but her team was extremely courteous and professional. It was an all around great experience!
Tamara catered my 30th bday party and it was fabulous! Not only was the food delicious, her team was great! They were incredibly efficient and friendly. Thank you for making my party so memorable! All my guests asked for business cards to use Tamara and her team for their next event!
They did an amazing job, my Sister's party was a success!! Food was great and the staff was very friendly and professional. We had an awesome experience :)
Tamara and her staff were wonderful,from beginning to the end of the event. Tamara returned every phone call and email at a lightening speed response. The food and presentation was so well done and delicious. I would highly recommend her services. I hit a home run whenI found Amoraco catering services. My daughter will never forget her 30th birthday party.
Amoraco did an excellent job catering for the grand opening at our new office! They were on time and highly personable. Presentation and quality of food was amazing! Tamara was wonderful to work with on details prior to the event and gave us the best deal possible. I highly recommend hiring Amoraco for any catering needs. :)
Tamara and her Amoraco team were truly exceptional. Before the event, Tamara was responsive, readily accepting our preferences and changes to the menu she proposed and very reasonable in her pricing. She, Tara and Jean arrived as scheduled one hour before the party and needed minimal guidance before taking over the kitchen and starting to prepare the food. They worked diligently, professionally and with a beaming smile throughout the four hours we had hired them for. The food was inventive and delicious, presented beautifully and in a timely fashion. When two of our guests spilled their drinks on the carpet, the quickly cleaned up the mess even though that was not easy. When they left, the kitchen was in an impeccable condition and our apartment looked as if the party had never taken place. We tip our hat (and so did our guests) to this great team, which offered excellent food, superior service and a worry-free event to the hosts.
Tamara catered our engagement party Nov 2014 for 50 people. She was extremely easy to communicate with from the start, whipped up a great selection of appetizers for us to choose from (our guests raved about the truffled wontons!) and seamlessly provided a bartender and all the alcohol as well. She's very friendly, on time, easy to work with, and I wouldn't hesitate to use her for future events. Thanks Tamara!
Hands on, professional, great food and attentive service with smiles. An invaluable asset to my concert. Thank you, Tamara.
So I hired Tamara after looking on the internet and coming across Thumbtack. While there are many options to select from, I went with Tamara because of her speed to respond and moreover, the reviews she has received. This was an extremely important event for me and reviews matter. Tamara and staff by far went well above expectations. I thought I would drive her insane with all the changes, dates, time, food selections, you name it I had to throw it at her. She was a pro with all the changes. Folks, if you're looking for any type of event to get catered, Tamara is your woman! The event went fantastic, her food is ridiculously deliscious and all I got all night were compliments on her food and her staff's attentivemenss. They did nothing but smile, communicate with me throughout the event and make sure it went perfect. If you don't hire her, you're not hiring the best.
From start to finish, Tamara was a dream to work with!! We threw an engagement cocktail party for 45 people, and Tamara worked with us during the weeks that we spent planning, to make sure every detail was perfect along the way. Communication was extremely fast (mostly over email, which made it very easy to get some planning in during work hours). We opted for a tasting before the party, so that we could choose exactly what we wanted, and it was fantastic! Everything was absolutely delicious, and the presentation was beautiful. After that we were sure the party would be perfect. We ended up choosing the sliders, chicken tacos, pork empanadas, truffled mushroom wontons (a BIG hit), grilled cheese toasties with tomato soup (a HUGE hit), and crab cakes. As for the actual event, the before, during and after went as smoothly as we could have hoped for. Pre-party setup was quick and efficient. The food prep and distribution during the party was very professional - all of the food was served to our guests warm and fresh, and no one left hungry. In fact, there were just enough leftovers left over for me to enjoy the next day :) All in all, Tamara and her team helped make it a really special event, and I would recommend her to anyone!
Tamara was amazing, full stop. She essentially captained a 10-person bar-tending team as well as her expert crew for a 3-hour event that included 300+ people, 2 floors of a venue, and 3 standing bars � and she did it all while delivering a tasty, fresh array of dishes that at least one dozen guests named "amazing." (Personal favorites included the juicy apricot chicken and zesty cous cous, but it was all first-class.) Tamara is a natural event wizard. She's generous with her time and talent and, frankly, amazing to behold on site. She was prompt and professional about communicating her team's needs and even came prepared with additional supplies, showing that she anticipated needs we had not even realized we'd have. (We ultimately needed to rely on all of her resources, and she passed this pressure test with flying colors.) Thumbtack's prompt asks if Tamara went "above and beyond" ��we'd say a resounding yes, such that the event would not have been half the success it was without her. She stepped into an informal leadership role over a key component of the evening (the bar and bussing management) when this was far from her stated duties. She was a courteous, engaging, and sharp-eyed director of not only the dinner service, but also the entire room. Tamara has spoiled us for any other catering service, and we can only hope she'll work with us again in the future.
Hire Tamara! You will not be disappointed. Tamara and her staff executed a seamless work event for me. We had cocktails, passed hors d'oeuves, and a plated dinner for ~18 guests. Tamara was very easy to coordinate with, very accommodating with the menu, and charged a great price! I will definitely be hiring Tamara and her staff for the next event.
Tamara and her staff were nothing short of amazing. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. I can't wait to use them again!
