As my guests arrived, they were impressed to see a handsome team of caterers bringing out beautifully plated foods. Only Hors d’oeuvres will be the first and only catering service I call when I have my next party! Donna L.

I attended a party and was very impressed with the whole presentation of this soiree and the food was delicious. I had a great time. I’ve already spoke with Gary and told him to get ready for me. I’m looking forward to working with him. Jeff H. Party Guest

I have had nothing but great comments about last evening. Thank you for making it a fantastic event. Glen R. S

I had the opportunity to taste Only Hors d’oeuvres’ specialties and everything was more than delicious! I was impressed with Gary’s focus on the taste and presentation of the food and making sure my guests were enjoying themselves. I’d definitely use Gary’s services again and recommend him as a great caterer. Henry S. Party Host

Gary, a Preferred Caterer at The Hudgens, did an amazing job cooking a fabulous Coconut Milk and Curried White Bean soup for our 3rd Annual Soup Bowl benefit. Not only did he provide the soup that was delicious and hugely popular but also stayed to assist us during the entire event! Consider using Only Hors d’oeuvres the next time your event calls for a great caterer. Crystal M., Special Events Coordinator The Hudgens Center for the Arts

Gary and the Only Hors d’oeuvres Catering team were fantastic to work with.  I contacted them for a last minute event, he provided us with suggestions for a menu which were all perfect and Gary made it happen.  They showed up early and served trays of delicious hors d’oeuvres throughout the course of the 4 hour event. I will absolutely be contacting Gary again for future events that we have and highly recommend his company. Kate O'Brien,

Director of Marketing,

Only Hors d’oeuvres Catering did a great job. The food was delicious and the servers polite and knowledgeable.  I loved the ingenious idea of the sliced lemon to hold the skewers. Adam Schepp

It was really nice to meet you and your team. You were very helpful on catering and other issues, as it was a new experience for me in hiring a wine catering in States.
Food was delicious. Cheese and meat plates were perfect for our wines.
We are happy to choose your company for our other events.

I hired Only Hors d’oeuvres Catering by Gary Settles to cater my 30th birthday party in my new apartment serving 30 people.  Quite a number of my friends commented that the food was delicious. Everything was homemade, hot, and came with a fancy accompanying sauce.  Gary and his staff were responsible, timely, and had everything put away after the party.  I highly recommend Only Hors d’oeuvres Catering and plan to use them for my next event.

I hired Only Hors d’oeuvres Catering & Events for a small birthday party in my Battery Park apartment.  I am a little OCD about things being “just so” and was delighted that in addition to fresh preparing and serving lovely food, Gary’s staff made sure things were continually refreshed, tidied and cleaned.

In a city with so many options, I would personally use Only Hors d’oeuvres again and Highly recommend them to others !!

My partner and I want to thank you for the excellent food and the gracious staff you provided for our recent launch event in NYC.  Organizing this event from a home base elsewhere was difficult in all respects except for one:  you were not only prompt and professional in all communications, you actually shaped a menu around the international nature of the event.  We couldn’t have been more pleased and look forward to working with you and your team again.  

Best wishes and I hope you have a happy and busy holiday season!

The Owner and staff of Only Hors D’oeuvres Catering were everything I hoped for and more!

I’ve met with many caterers but Gary really impressed me during our consultation. He was able to come up with some special menu ideas right on the spot, providing an exquisite selection of hors d’oeuvres.  Gary and the staff were extremely professional and very pleasant to work with.  The BEST part was the food! It was well presented, very delicious, abundant and my guests couldn’t stop raving about it.

I will definitely be using Only Hors D’oeuvres for my next event.

We host events that allow our staff and clients to mingle in a relaxed atmosphere.  Only Hors d’oeuvres stepped in when our previous caterer retired.  On relatively short notice, Gary provided us with a menu that provided for a variation of tastes and a presentation that was very well received by our guests.  Working with Gary and the staff was pleasant and the service was professional and nicely understated.  We also appreciate how the staff was able to fashion a very enjoyable evening working in our sub-par kitchen facilities.  We look forward to Only Hors d’oeuvres catering our next event.
