“OMG! Where do I begin? I don’t know whether to lead with the phenomenal food or your staff’s gracious service. I’ll start with food….in a word – AMAZING! To be clear, my biggest regret of the evening was that I didn’t eat more. Beginning with my grapefruit spritzer at photos right through desserts on the dance floor, no detail was overlooked. The passed hors d’oeuvres were delicious and the stations were stunning. In addition to providing big bites of your fabulous food, those stations created the exact amount of activity I know the kids were looking for. My friends went nuts for your lamb chops and my cousin is still talking about the shrimps with the Bloody Mary pipette. Somehow you captured all the tastes of my kids wanted represented and we couldn’t be happier. I don’t know how you could outdo cocktails, but then came dinner. It was absolutely perfect! And, by the way, how did you do that so fast? Desserts were fun, fun, fun and the vault with the schlagg couldn’t have been more beautiful or on point. Now to your staff…. accommodating would be an understatement. I still don’t understand how they could be everywhere and nowhere at the same time. Folks are still talking about your table service. Lowering all the plates to the table at the same time was indescribable. What a beautiful surprise that was! Let me close by saying it has been a joy getting to know you both and I know I speak for Stephanie when I say that it has been our privilege to be the recipients of your exceptional talent. How lucky are we!”

“I do not know if there are enough complementary words to describe the Thomas Preti team. First off, the food is amazing! Even though it is months after our wedding, people are still telling us that the food was the best they’ve ever eaten at a wedding. The service was incredible! During one of our many phone calls, I asked to make sure there was enough staff so the service would be excellent. For a jam packed room, I don’t think that anyone was ever waiting for a drink and each table was served dinner like it was a perfectly orchestrated performance. It was truly special to watch. Lastly, I cannot thank the team enough. From the first tasting with Tom and Ross, to hopping on phone calls to go through the menu line by line, to walking through every rental item, we truly felt taken care of throughout the process. Ross went out of his way to work with us on some extensive allergies and all of our guests could not have been more grateful. As an event planner myself, I would work with Thomas Preti and his team for every event!”

“I originally reached out to Thomas Preti right before I was about to make a decision between two other caterers. I wasn’t 100% sold on either, and just didn’t feel confident in their ability to execute my vision. Luckily, I noticed some of Thomas Preti’s events on Instagram, rang them immediately and Tom happened to answer. From the minute we began speaking I knew Tom was my guy. He understood my vision completely, we just got each other. I ended up meeting him that day and I was completely sold. Thank god for instinct! Tom, Ross and the entire TPC team are amazing. Their attention to detail is impeccable (I am type A so this speaks volume), and the food…OH MY GOD!! Our guests are still raving. Who has candied bacon on their wedding bars?? My husband and I are foodies and huge fans of mixologist/speak easy style cocktails, boy did they nail both! I highly, highly recommend TP!”

I used Thomas Preti for my 150 person wedding in Manhattan and would HIGHLY recommend them for anyone looking for incredible food, presentation, and service. Guests were beyond impressed by the food and service. Thomas Preti goes far beyond just being caterers. Our event lead Ross, walked us through every step of the process from menu selection to execution and even helped us coordinate our florals, our rentals, our event flow — you name it! He made the most helpful recommendations throughout the entire process and did a fabulous job bringing our vision to life. Ellen from their team was so helpful in terms of coordinating all logistics from floor plans to each and every rental item. I was so impressed with the level of service and attention we received from start to finish from every staff member including Thomas himself. This company was truly a pleasure to work with and made us feel like family from day 1. The perfect combination of warmth and professionalism!
