Melody made our wedding. With 160 guests we had passed hors d'oeuvres and a family style dinner at 501 Union, Brooklyn. Even our pickiest eaters were impressed with the quality of the food and service. Melody was not only incredibly responsive to both us and our wedding planner, but she took care of all the rental details. We would 100% recommend EventfulNYC.
Melody and her staff delivered great tasting food for us! She and her staff a delightful to work with and we cannot wait to do it all over again! Her positive cheer comes through in every dish and everything is made with such love and care. Eventfull served passed food to a crowd of 300 people and everything was presented to perfection. As an example - each beef slider done to medium with toasted buns and the cheese perfectly melted.. they were unreal!!!
Eventfull catered our wedding at the Brooklyn Historical Society this past September. Let's just say Eventfull played an important part in making our wedding day memorable.
Melody has created a most delightful menu, combining Mediterranean flavors with the most exquisite American recipes.
Melody is fantastic and detail oriented. As an event planner myself, I was nervous about all the things that could go wrong on the big day. I was able to hand things over to Melody and her staff with confidence, and that was a relief.
We hired Eventfull to cater our wedding in April 2014, and it was an absolute pleasure to work with Melody, from beginning to end. She was thorough, patient, understanding, kind, professional and went absolutely above and beyond the call of duty. She thought of every single detail, and her team was incredibly efficient and friendly, especially our manager Walter, who was calm and efficient under pressure, and made sure the evening went off without a hitch. The food on the day was absolutely delicious, exactly as it had been during the tasting. I thought working with the caterer would be one of the more stressful parts of our wedding, but Melody and her excellent team made it one of the most enjoyable. She was receptive and flexible with all our requests and suggestions, and within hours of our first meeting I trusted her judgment completely. I cannot recommend Eventfull highly enough, and wouldn't think twice about using them again. Absolutely fantastic.
Really great to work with and wonderful good. I had a last-minute, nearly no-notice event and EVENTfull pulled together an interesting, delicious menu at a reasonable price. The server was pleasant and helpful and the entire occasion was pleasant and stress-free. I happily recommend EVENTfull, and plan to use them for future events.
We had a Diwali (Festival of Lights) cocktail this past weekend. I was nervous as we have a newborn baby but eventfull took care of everything. It was a small event for 25 but the chef Melody and bartender Walter just rocked. The food was amazing, tasty, and served with elegance. I would highly recommend the team and will definitely use them again. Some of my favs were the beef sliders, wild mushroom profiteroles, lobster rolls,middle eastern chicken kababs and bacon wrapped dates. Fab evening due to a professional team and absolutely no clean up for us after the party!
Eventfull catered my daughter's bat mitzvah 4 years ago and my son's this past weekend. Melody, the business' owner and head chef, along with her manager, Matt, were creative, detail oriented (they thought of everything!) patient, professional, etc. Most catered affairs - mass-prepared plates - are nothing special. This weekend our guests were asking the waiters for their cards. Eventfull handled everything - food, flowers, linens, wine - and even made a trip uptown to get a particular challah that i had requested. The room was beautiful, tasteful and bright. The food was also beautifully presented, fresh and delicious. I cannot say enough.
Eventfull did an amazing job on my wedding. I was so impressed I had to get my feelings out there so other people could experience the same. The venue, 26th Bridge was outstanding and helped complement the catering. I would highly recommend Melody for her outstanding food and professional staff. I can't wait to use her for my other needs in the future.
Melody and her staff are absolutely wonderful. I work with her on a weekly basis for our television show and whenever I need to order something, she is always able to make it happen and provides absolutely delicious food. Our clients are always so impressed with how great tasting her food is and her presentation is always wonderful. She is very organized and is always available and there when you need her. She can make so many different types of food - from sweets to salads to sandwiches, everything is so delicious! I highly recommend Melody and her staff for any catering needs!
Melody catered our wedding in May at the Brooklyn Historical Society and I could not have been happier that we hired her. If we had to do it all over again, I would absolutely hire Melody in a heartbeat, which is not something I can say for all of our other vendors. She was organized and accommodating. I was planning our NY wedding from California, and she was always available whenever I was in town to meet me. She was responsive and I was 100% confident that the day would run smoothly with her in charge. The waitstaff the day of were prompt, well-dressed, courteous, polite, and were exceedingly professional.
We hired this company for my little sister`s wedding, I cannot say more than excellent!! Professional stuff and food was amazing, delicious, from appetizers to drinks everything was perfectly planned. And I will be hiring the same company for my own coming wedding end of this month.
Melody and Eventfull catered my graduation party and it was nothing short of amazing. I explained to Melody that as a graduating medical student I had only a small budget and instead of turning me away as so many caterers did, she worked with me to come up with an absolutely wonderful menu and service that fit my budget. Not only was her food absolutely delicious (everyone commented how tasty yet light and healthy!) she was so kind and gracious to me and my guests. I couldn't have asked for a better experience or a more special graduation. If I ever end up getting married, I'll make sure to have her cater my wedding as well!
When we decided we wanted to do a loft wedding, we initially got worried because of the sky-high prices and unfriendly attitudes we initially encountered in meeting NYC caterers. However, from the first time we met Melody, we realized that not only was the loft wedding we wanted achievable, but that Melody was on top of all of the details and coordination that makes DIY venues difficult. She always patiently answered emails and questions very quickly, she walked us through all of our options and the decisions we had to make, and the food we tried was uniformly delicious. On the day of the wedding, all of our guests commented on how great the food was and how friendly and professional the staff was. They made our event unforgettable. We would recommend them without reservations.
I cannot say enough about head chef and owner Melody Ozdenak and her catering services. She was a key component in crafting our special day. We needed to incorporate our family's Thai and Filipino cuisine and she was more than willing to tailor her menu to honor our requests. Not only was she so accommodating she was such a professional and handled every nuance of the planning and execution with expertise. She quickly responded to my emails and helped in any way she could. It was such an easy experience that I am so thankful I had the luck to choose Melody as my caterer. Her food is delicious, well prepared and her selection is abundant. She is priced very fairly and for her level of service she is in my opinion, a steal! Can I just say her wait staff was excellent and from reports of my guests, very attentive and good looking to boot! My personal wedding servers that delivered the cocktail hour food and drinks to our bridal room were also very accommodating and attentive as well. She also had a full staff of chefs and a front of the house manager that kept the night and waitstaff/bartenders moving seamlessly. I was thoroughIy impressed with how well the night progressed with no hiccups that I could perceive (blessing!). I would say of all my vendors I am the most pleased w/ Eventfull.nyc and definitely would refer them as your caterer!
Eventfull did a good job catering our wedding. The event ran smoothly, quickly, and the food was delicious. They worked well with the challenges of our venue, communicated with us daily the week of the wedding (including after hours as needed), and we were able to relax and have a good time with friends and family.
We couldn't have asked for a more capable, flexible and professional team. I will recommend Eventfull to everyone!
Thank you, Melody and the Eventfull. Nyc staff for all the support! The food was amazing! Super healthy too. Usually during film shoots sandwiches and pizza are the norm so this was such a treat!
Melody catered our Brooklyn wedding almost three years ago, and I just got another compliment on her delicious food today.
