I wanted to thank you and your team for an incredible breakfast. The food and service were perfection.

Thank you for your help in making our event a success! Your generosity is truly appreciated.

My very best,

Big thanks to you and your staff for everything you did to make our wedding such a lovely occasion. Our guests told us that the food was “exceptionally good” (we agree!) and the staff was so polite and helpful. We really appreciate all your careful planning and attention to every detail. Sean and I are so happy about how it all went!

Thanks again!

We first discovered Café de Soleil as a charming bistro in the neighborhood and then sampled their elegant catering at a charity event at the Boat Basin on 79th Street. We were so impressed that we engaged Soleil Caterers for our son’s Bar Mitzvah. The locale posed a substantial challenge, as ongoing renovations meant there wouldn’t even be a working kitchen. The team made everything work beautifully, from the delicious food to the glowing dining room to the attentive, congenial service. Soleil thought through all the possibilities and anticipated all the constraints of creating a festive party in a location where the crew would be given barely a day to install everything they needed for the party. Throughout, Soliel and Company were professional, thoughtful and a pleasure to work with.

You all did so very well …. Amy and Sean were so Happy and Inspirational … I loved the ceremony … the reception, food, dancing, food, fabulous setting, food, friends and family ….ah yes, and the delicious food at the Brunch!! (^o^) A Feast indeed.

The birthday cake was such a very loving touch …. In fact there were many loving touches … the family pictures, the candles on the staircase, balloons, flowers to take home — memories that will last a long time!! (no doubt I’ll think of more at another time)

Love to you both—


I am forwarding this email from Patty Peck, sister to the father-of-the-bride, as an example of the effusive praise that we received about Amy and Sean’s wedding and about your fabulous food in particular. Everyone said how delicious and interesting all of the choices were especially the gnocchi with mushroom sauce ! If you give out that recipe, please share it. Or if you have a mail order frozen version I can order, please put me on your mailing list. It was extraordinary!

And let me add that your catering staff was just excellent. Scotty and Marcia were on top of everything, so helpful and went out of their way to look after our every need. All of the wait staff were efficient and polite and engaging. I have no suggestions on how to improve your catering service because “perfect” was the word so many of the guests used to describe the wedding celebration. I was surprised when Amy told us that Union Theological Seminary uses only one caterer and now I know why. Soliel, you’re the best!

Thanks so much for your part in making Amy and Sean’s wedding so wonderful,

Lynn And David Holmes

THANK YOU SO MUCH for this past Saturday!!!! I heard from so many people that they loved the food And your staff did such an amazing job with the setup. Everything was beyond what I imagined. I was so happy. Jason and Marcia did such a great job with the setup and the flow of everything. Please tell them thank you.

The extra amount is for a staff gratuity. They did a wonderful job. Please thank them as well for us.

Again, this couldn’t have happened without you. Thanks for putting up with my crazy emails for the last 5-6 months!! 🙂 Best of luck with your catering business.

Thank you so much for an incredible job. The food and presentation was amazing!

Again, thank you so much. The guests at the event loved the food. I look forward to working with you again on future Harlem Park to Park events!


It was a pleasure having Soleil here for Lily’s Bat Mitzvah. Your food and presentation were great and your staff was wonderful. I have already started recommending you to renters and potential renters and hope that we will have the pleasure of Soleil Caterers here again in the near future.

Last but far from least, I cannot say enough good things about Nick Swain and Soleil. Nick was there long before the ceremony and did not leave until the bitter end. He made sure that absolutely everything was perfect. It is a pleasure to recommend Soleil to anyone after our experience with Nick. Our guests were well fed and happy from beginning to end, and Nick checked in with me periodically just to make sure that all was well. – I would hire them again in a “New York minute.”
Best regards and Happy Holidays!
