Chef Damon's reviews
Chef was so professional and the meal was excellent I definitely recommend chef Damon Henderson

I had a great booking experience with Damon! He created a menu based on my initial requests and was flexible enough to customize a few things after some back and forth via messaging and calls. He was even able to set up a small table with tablecloth and candles since we were dining outside after sunset.
Every course was on point! To start, Damon made escargot, French onion and tomato basil soup, which were all better than most restaurants My gf and I had tried in the past. The main course of lamb sirloin was flavorful without being overwhelming and cooked perfectly medium rare as requested. The coconut pie dessert was tasty without being too sweet.
Most importantly, Damon has a good personality and was a delight to have in our house. My gf and I thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary dinner experience that Damon thoughtfully creates for us. We highly recommend Damon!

I had Chef Damon come to my house for my wife’s birthday. Not only is he an excellent chef but he is a wonderful person to be around and to learn from. He has plenty of experience and fine dining and I Especially loved how well he treated us while he was here. All the courses were tasty and presented beautifully. He showed up on time as well which is important to me. I already recommended him to two of my friends and plan on continuing to use them for events going forward. Thank you so much Chef Damon, easily find a chef experience my wife and I have had.

Damon Henderson Was wonderful! He was on time, very polite and provided a great presentation.
We booked Damon for My boyfriends birthday since we can’t go to dinner. Damon handled the whole dinner while we stayed outside and relaxed. It was like being at a 5 star restaurant at home. He was so great! Definitely book him.
