“I highly recommend Ratatouille and Evelyn Isaia for any party need you might have. First, and maybe foremost, the food is fantastic. I am still thinking about that lemon sauce on the Branzino - absolutely delicious. But as much as the food is wonderful, Evelyn delivers so much more than that. She is extremely organized, so the event goes off without a hitch thanks to careful planning and excellent communication. At the same time, her obvious design talents framed the evening - our event featured water goblets that coordinated with the flower vases and the chair cushions - all coming together in a perfect harmony. And maybe saving the best for last - her social consciousness is on a level far above the average mortal. She hires staff who are in need of developing skills to move them into productive careers. The young women who fed and served us were both professional and obviously well-trained, but more than that - they were charming, engaging, and clearly enthusiastic about the opportunities provided to them.
All in all, it was an absolute joy working with Evelyn and all the Ratatouille crew. I look forward to repeating the experience!”
“The Ratatouille employees are pleasant, professional and warm, and the food is sensational.
And you get the added plus of helping female refugees support themselves and their families.
What a delicious and soul-satisfying combination! “
“ I hired Ratatouille &Co. for a cocktail party for a board on which I serve because R&Co.’s mission aligns with that of my board. But I will hire them again for other events because the food was inventive, delicious and generous and the staff was well-trained and gracious. Working with Evelyn and Cathy to plan the party was both easy and efficient and the event was beautifully done. Thank you R&Co.! “

“Talk about a win-win! I loved everything: the delicious food, the attentive staff, the professional yet personal approach to organizing my birthday party. Besides all that, Ratatouille & Co.’s mission was a key point in making me pick them for the event. It feels good to be a small part of such a wonderful initiative. “

“Ratatouille's warm, professional staff was an integral part to a successful gathering of friends and family at an intimate gathering in NYC. In addition Evelyn's hands on approach, leading up to the event, allowed me to focus on my guests and enjoy the evening.“
“Wonderful staff. Creative and delicious dishes. As fabulous to look at as they were to eat. I could not have been happier.”
“When we are hosting an intimate cocktail party and sit-down dinner and need the finest cuisine and most impeccable service, we always reach out to our friends at Ratatouille. That the owners and staff are a joy to work with and the business has an admirable social purpose are added bonuses.”

"Fairfield County's Community Foundation was pleased to work with Ratatouille and Co. for several special donor events this past year. The quality of their food and service was extraordinary and of course the Community Foundation connected very strongly with their social mission. We would recommend them especially to fellow philanthropic organizations!"

“As part of our wedding celebration for our daughter, we needed to plan one more event. If you've ever planned a wedding, even with help, it's a labor of love and decisions! Our guests were staying at the McCarren Hotel in Brooklyn and the hotel highly recommended their caterer, Ratatouille and Co. After a conversation with the owner, Evelyn, not only did she fully understand what our expectations were for the "morning after", we discovered we were kindred spirits. Needless to say, our brunch was stunning and delicious. With both Evelyn and Cathy working, the food was constantly replenished, plates were full and guests were treated to a lovely meal of bite sized quiche, fresh fruit, homemade pastries and bagels with all the fixings. The weather beat down on us with oppressive NY August heat, but the servers smiled as they moved through the crowd clearing plates and offering their assistance. Hailing from Connecticut, we were treated to the BEST NY bagels this New Yorker has ever eaten. Thank you to the staff of Ratatouille and Co. for the perfect ending to a wonderful wedding weekend.”
'Wonderful, caring, attentive service and lovely food!"
“Ratatouille is simply the best there is. While the food is exquisitely prepared, delicious to taste and beautiful to see, the customer service exceeds expectations over and over again. From the venue selection to the table decor, Evelyn is the arbiter of fine taste and approaches each project, no matter the size, with great skill and professionalism. You will always feel like you are the only client when working with Ratatouille.”
"Thank you for making our wedding so elegant and so special"
"Ratatouille organized everything from start to finish and did not miss a single detail. The food was not only delicious but exquisitely presented.
Working with them was an absolute pleasure and alleviated the stress of hosting a party while staying within budget. Their dedication to providing culinary opportunities to women from all backgrounds is truly remarkable and unique. An incredibly talented group of women, you cannot go wrong with Ratatouille!"
"Beyond the exquisite food - the project and mission Ratatouille that drives Ratatouille is amazing and inspiring."
