The experience was fantastic. Aldo and Karen were excellent chefs, providing great service. I have a couple of items of feedback: 1 - please inquire about which wines to open when serving with dinner. We had a few bottles that were opened that we were intending to save. 2 - we did not receive daily grocery receipts to confirm the total grocery component of the total charges. Otherwise, i wonderful experience.

Mr. John Watkins - Apr 4, 2019

5/ 5

Chef Dave is absolutely INCREDIBLE! Could not possibly recommend him more. He helped curate a fantastic menu for six guests. I am vegetarian, but the other five guests are not. He easily managed my dietary restriction without sacrificing on flavor for all the other guests. We wanted quite a bit of food, and he certainly brought more than enough and offered us the leftovers. We went back and forth on the menu until we found the right mix and quantity. Our personal favorite menu items: - stuffed squash blossoms - we ended up eating two servings of this, absolutely incredible) - homemade pasta with bolognese (impossible meat for me//real for everyone else) - grouper with an incredible sauce We also asked for wine pairings the day before and he actually brought the wine with him with extra bottles, all without an extra up charge. He is also incredibly professional and knowledgeable. All around SO easy to work with. We will absolutely be booking again the next time we are in southern Florida.

Chef Kirill is simply amazing. He is a true chef, preparing and delivering great food. All the dishes that we tasted showed inventivity and were delightful. He was most professional during all our exchanges, being very diligent and clear to answer. His assistant Diana was very effective too. They are a great team and we cannot recommend enough to anyone considering a high quality cuisine experience in the Playa area.

Therefore, the freshness of the ingredients is one of the key elements of a Private Chef service.
