  • This is written from the prospective of the father of the bride. Chef Rossi, and her fantastic staff led by Charmaine were simply fantastic. What a dynamic duo!!!! The food was beyond good, service was impeccable. Chef Rossi worked with us on the budget and a menu that was not typical wedding food. Throughout the planning to the wonderful wedding Chef Rossi made us feel like we were her most important client. If you want incredible food, service and attention to detail, Chef Rossi and her amazing staff delivers more than you could ever dream.

  • We cannot say enough good things about the fabulous food and terrific service provided for our daughter's wedding at The Green Building in Brooklyn. The bride and groom live in NYC and had attended a Raging Skillet 'tasting' - they loved the creativity and freshness of the menu, and the way in which it changed with the seasons. They did not want a sit-down dinner but rather something less formal and fluid. Since we (parents of bride) were in Atlanta, we arranged for a conference call with Chef Rossi to discuss planning and answer any questions -- we were instantly sold! Chef Rossi was familiar with the venue we were using and was able to reassure us about logistics, flow, food variety and quantity. What's more, she was excited and encouraging about every aspect of wedding planning, and her confidence and enthusiasm were an inspiration for us! We had delicious passed hors d'oeuvres (including little lobster 'cones,' incredible shrimp, sweet potato pancakes, crab cakes, and macaroni ... Read more

  • The Raging Skillet! What can I say but UNBELIEVABLE. Chef Rossi and Charmaine are total rockstars. Their food is delicious, restaurant quality, and they were incredibly helpful figuring our prices and the flow of the evening. Even with a last-minute scheduling issue, all our guests went home raving about the food, especially the late-night snacks of pizza bagels and Crack Oreos! My groom and I had to leave the reception (I had to go perform in a play), and Rossi and Charmaine filled to-go boxes with appetizers and food for us, which we devoured ASAP. It was the perfect night, and never would have been so wonderufl without them. Thank you, Raging Skillet! I can't wait to throw a party just so I can hire them again. Love, love love!

  • Us: high maintenance, detail oriented, obsessed with good food. The Raging Skillet: First rate, delicious, and creative food that all of our guests raved about. If you're reading this, you probably realize that most of the reviews are positive. Making matters worse is that any competent chef can give you a good tasting, because that's cooking food for two people. What you want to know is what happens when they're scaling that food to 50-100x as many people, in a space that may not even have a conventional kitchen. so it's hard to read between the lines and determine who really is best. Listen up - reach out to Chef Rossi. You won't regret it. My husband and I love food of all kinds: haute cuisine, street food, holes in the wall in other cities and countries etc. And we'll just say, first, that Chef Rossi's tasting was indeed excellent but that the wedding food WAS EVEN BETTER. We got married a few weeks ago and we still keep hearing from our guests that it was the best we... Read more

  • Chef Rossi is amazing! We felt really safe in her hands. She was very responsive and super helpful with planning our menu. Our wedding was at the picnic house and went so smoothly thanks to her team. The real MVP is Charmaine who was with us from our final walk through and beyond. She was unbelievable to work with, and most importantly, made sure I always had a glass of prosecco in my hand. She knew when my glass was low before I did, she's like a spy. The food was really great, especially the hors d'oeuvres. People are still talking about the mac and cheese balls. As with all vendors, make sure you really read the contract and ask questions! They're more than happy to answer them.

  • My husband and I had our wedding at The Green Building in Brooklyn, and we found The Raging Skillet on their list of recommended caterers. We were looking for a caterer who could provide a full vegan wedding, and Chef Rossi had full vegan menus on her website! Sounded great -- then we read her reviews and we're blown away by how much everyone loved her! Rossi and Charmaine were both an absolute pleasure to work with. They were genuinely excited about our wedding, went right along with the Harry Potter theme, and helped make everything super special. Our guests (who were mostly meat eaters) loved the food and are still raving about her portobello mushroom steaks and newly veganized "crack balls"! Rossi and Charmaine, we love you!!!! Thank you for making our wedding perfect from appetizers to dessert! (And for giving us the extra food to eat the next day!). We are so happy and would hire them alllllll over again!

  • From our initial tasting we were sold - Chef Rossi and Charmaine are amazing! Both are quick to respond to emails, easy to work with, and always willing to help answer a question or offer a suggestion. l, and most importantly her food was delicious. Our guests raved about cocktail hour, dinner, and have even asked where to buy the Oreo Crack. We highly recommend Raging Skillet and hope our friends and family book so we can enjoy more of her creative dishes!

  • Chef Rossi and her amazing team pulled off a miracle at our wedding. We had a "my worst nightmare has come true" incident at our wedding when our rental company was running VERY late and didn't arrive until 30 minutes before our guests. We rented everything from the rental company, including tables, chairs, silverware, and almost all of the kitchen supplies that Chef Rossi needed. Chef Rossi and her team basically did things that would normally take four hours, and they managed to do it in 30 minutes. Not only were they able to get all the food out in time, the food tasted great. Chef Rossi's team also seriously hustled and set up all of the tables, chairs, and place settings in time for our guests. The guests didn't even know that we had a major problem that could have very easily devastated our wedding. Quite frankly, I wouldn't have known that we had a major problem if someone hadn't told me (my husband and our fabulous wedding planner actually didn't tell me there was an is... Read more

  • Chef Rossi and her team are phenomenal!!! One of the few things my husband and I felt strongly about for our wedding was having a floating dinner of small plates, rather than a seated dinner. Even just a tiny bit of googling shows that Rossi is an expert at this format. I contacted her and she invited us to a couples tasting event, which was not only delicious from start to finish but also super fun. We booked her pretty much the second we walked out the door and I'm so glad we did! The food at our wedding was outstanding, as was the presentation and execution. Several guests told us it was the best food they'd ever eaten at a wedding and I completely agree. Moreover, Chef Rossi brings decades of expertise to the table. She struck a great balance of helping us get everything we wanted, while also telling us when our ideas might not work out so well and proposing modifications. If you happen to be gluten free, then DEFINITELY look no further. Chef Rossi can cook anything, but I nee... Read more

  • I can't say enough about the dream team of Chef Rossi and Charmaine! From the very first meeting we knew that we were in good hands and that the food would be incredible, but they went way above and beyond and exceeded our expectations in every single way. Not only was the food ridiculously good, but the wait staff too just completely blew me away with their kindness and graciousness and attentiveness to each and every guest. They made sure that we, as the bride and groom, were taken care of and that we ate, and on top of that gave us a TON of leftovers to take home after, including dessert! The wait staff was so incredibly sweet, friendly (interacting with everyone, even our dog!), and made sure everything went smoothly and everyone was happy and well-fed. Charmaine is one of the sweetest people I've ever met, and her sheer presence, including checking in on us throughout the evening, made us feel that everything was cool, calm, and under control. She made the night incredibly smooth ... Read more

  • Best wedding decision we made! Having great food at our wedding was one of our top priorities and a non-negotiable. Both my husband and I are huge foodies so being able to enjoy our food was really important. After meeting with Chef Rossi at her tasting we had to look no further. The food was outstanding!! After a summer of weddings, we (and our family and friends) were thrilled to have something that was both delicious and not just your standard wedding fare. Its difficult to even find words to do justice for how amazing the food was. From lobster rolls, to peanut butter and bacon sandwiches, to pulled pork tacos, it was unbelievable. Equally as incredible was the service and experience we were provided! Chef Rossi and Charmaine were absolutely outstanding! Chef Rossi had a call with me to chat about what types of food we like, don’t like and what our vision was. The thoughtfulness, care, and calm attitude she had on this call was amazing and present throughout the entire proces... Read more

  • Chef Rossi and her team at the Raging Skillet were a dream to work with for our June 2016 wedding! Right from the start, my husband and I wanted the catering to reflect our respective cultures, and the Raging Skillet came highly recommended to us from the the Picnic House at Prospect Park. In the end, they were the only catering company we consulted with and we are so glad that we stuck with them! They were able to create an eclectic and custom menu that reflected both our cultures. Needless to say, the food was amazing and our guests raved about so many of the dishes. Moreover, throughout the planning process, Chef Rossi and Charmaine gave us many helpful suggestions that made our wedding run so much more smoothly. On the day of the wedding, the staff was incredibly kind, friendly, and overall, just wonderful people to work with. A special shoutout to Charmaine, who was so responsive and supportive throughout the entire wedding. In the end, both our reception and ceremony went smoothl... Read more

  • There was a tasting event at the picnic house with a half dozen vendors. I got to chat with the chef and the party planner as well as taste the yummy food. My husband and I also went to the kitchen to sample some of the food and discuss menu. The wedding was multiracial and multi cultural and we were delighted that Chef Rossi was so versatile.

  • Rossi and Charmaine are so warm and friendly and the food was amazing! We loved that Rossi invited us to dinner at her show kitchen before we booked it and that she was so flexible with our menu up to the last minute. Our only complaint was that responses to emails were sometimes a little bit slow and/or vague and as we were coming up to the wire it stressed us out a bit (but we are both anal retentive spreadsheet keepers so this may have just been a clash of styles). Rossi also recommended some other vendors - florist, etc.-- to us that we were thrilled with so overall definitely we recommend the Raging Skillet!
