"Thank you, Ilan, for your inspired catering of both a bar mitzvah brunch and a rehearsal dinner for us. You gracefully accommodated several unique needs (including food allergies), while creating memorable dishes and turning our kitchen into venue for performance art. Altogether real contributions to the joy of the events."

"Ilan was instrumental in the success of one of the most important days of life: our wedding day! We were looking for something original, tasty, healthy, and fun on a tight budget. Ilan developed an amazingly creative and original menu, allowed us and our friends to participate in the process, and most importantly designed an engaging and interactive service experience that has our friends and guests still raving about years after the event. I was fortunate to a be part of many meals designed and prepared by Ilan over the last 8 years, and I am impressed by the passion and effort Ilan puts in all his creations. Ilan's culinary experience complemented with his business acumen makes him the ideal chef for the health conscious clients that appreciate high quality service, flexibility and reliability."

"Having Ilan cater a party to celebrate our son becoming a Bar Mitzvah was a great experience from start to finish. Ilan brought wonderful, fresh ideas to the menu, was positive and enthusiastic both before and during the event, and worked really well with the other coordinators that evening. His food was absolutely phenomenal - our guests not only commented on how great the food was at the event, but they all showed up the next night for leftovers!!"

"Ilan, I can only touch on some of your traits as a Chef and the qualities of the meals you had have prepared for us over the years. Your level of professionalism, if it is; time management, paying detailed attention to our health needs (diabetics, celiac & high blood pressure), creativity in the meal creation and adherence to budgetary requirements, are second to none. The meals that you have prepared for my family only or diner parties that you had prepared for us and 12 or 14 of our guests, had few things in common. The cooking to perfection, flavors, garnishing and the overall quality of the meals were first quality. Your hygiene and cleanliness standards are just as high as the quality of the meals you prepare for us. Those qualities mentioned above are what set you a head and shoulder above your peers."

"We had a Bat-Mitzvah for our daughter and asked Ilan to provide the catering. Once the ceremony ended and the guests were invited to eat, we realized we made the right decision by asking Ilan to cater the event. The variety of the food, its quality, and the uniqueness of some of the dishes produced compliments from everyone. The food was fresh, authentic, delicious and visually appealing. We recommend Ilan warmly and enthusiastically to anyone who wants to have their event become an instant success."

"Ilan Barniv catered a joint birthday party for me and my husband in Providence, RI. We had never really had this kind of event catered, and had a small budget, but Ilan walked us through the whole process from an affordable menu selection to service. The food was delicious and fresh; we were very happy to have him take care of the food while we entertained our guests."
