Chef Benjamin's reviews
Chef Benjamin was incredible. We had an amazing meal for my wife’s birthday celebration. The Italian cuisine was spot on. A dinner to remember for a long time. Would love to hire Chef Benjamin again in the future.

Benjamin came to our house served a private meal for our wedding anniversary. It was delightful and exceeded our expectations. He was conversational and charming during prep but gave us privacy to enjoy our moment and our meal. The food was five star, from the salad course to the dessert. I highly recommend Benjamin.

We booked Chef Benjamin for our anniversary. Every course was very good and he was extremely professional throughout the dinner.

Chef Benjamin did an incredible job. I hired him for my sister in laws bachelorette party and he navigated the party well. The food was absolutely amazing. We all enjoyed every single dish. The presentation and explanation with each dish was great as well. I would absolutely hire him for another event.
