We came across Garden Gourmet's website in a search to have a catered BBQ menu for our wedding at a farm in Queens, NY. Michael, our catering coordinator was great in answering our many questions and getting the food, linens, and cake that we wanted all for a very great and reasonable price for 90 people. The day of the wedding we received so many compliments on the food, especially the BBQ chicken that was served. The appetizers went fast as well as the desserts we ordered. Everyone loved the food and the staff was beyond amazing. They were nice, pleasant, professional, and on the ball. The food came fast and the waiter that we had was a hit with all of our guests. Thanks for making our day special with great food and service.

Thank you again!


Hi Michael,
Well, I have to tell you that you have outdone yourselves once again!
Our graduation Clambake on Saturday was awesome!!!  Frank and Carlo were wonderful! Frank explained everything that would happen during the four hours and planned everything perfectly.  He was both extremely friendly, yet the perfect professional, and it was a real pleasure to meet him and Carlo both.   I can't tell you how many compliments we got about the food! There were people who would never touch a mussel, who had their plates filled after trying them...  The chowder was absolutely first class...  The chicken excellent....  Everything was perfect!!  The best part was that I didn't have to do a thing, and was able to enjoy the day!  Several people have already emailed me for your information, and I am thrilled to pass it along.  Thank you so much!!  We will be looking for excuses to host another party with you!
Warmest regards and thanks,

In a place where "good" deli's are on every corner, there's a good reason their parking lot is jammed daily;  They are Great.  Tremendous Variety. Excellent Food. Friendly Service. I absolutely go out of my way to get there. Worth it every time!

Dear Mike and NY Picnics/Garden Gourmet,
We can’t thank you enough for the wonderful job you did at our 600 Guest “Back to School Bar B Que” on September 24th. The food was delicious, hot and of high quality.

Dear Mike and Garden Gourmet,
On Tuesday 12/21, Garden Gourmet provided a wonderful catered meal for my company. I had arranged this relatively late for a holiday lunch (called the order in late Friday 12/17) but the order was complete, on time and delicious! We already knew your Eggplant Rollatini was great, but everyone could not stop talking about the Grilled Flank Steak. Thought i'd let you know. Thank you so much!

To Garden Gourmet Delicatessen,
Just a small THANK YOU for the wonderful job you did on the Nassau Community College breakfast order yesturday morning ( November 8th 2010).  Putting the names on each order was such a help to us, (how thoughtful) and we had many compliments on the food, which helped since i was getting static on my end waiting so long for all on the floor to arrive, before and hoping it wasn't to late to place the order. All in all, we had a very nice breakfast celebrating my birthday.  Thanks again and we will keep you in mind on all future plans.

Dear Garden Gourmet Staff,
Thank You all (including Fabiana) for always being so accomodatingl; Your food and service and presentation are always perfect. Happy New Year!

Dear Garden Gourmet
"THE BEST DELI!!"Your signature sandwiches and carving stations are out of this world. Make the BEST MAC-CHEESE my favorite and have even turned on 5 of my co-workers to your MAC-Cheese. It will always be a side dish for dinner that night. I will come from Queens on my day off, and have my family and friend going to the Garden Gourmet also. All employees are alway s friendly . GREAT DELI!!
