Ernesto was absolutely incredible to work with. He was professional, accommodating, and very helpful while curating the final menu. This was my first time using a private chef and loved every moment of the experience. I can't wait to do it again and will definitely be recommending him and Take A Chef's services to everyone. He cooked for a group of 6 and the dinner and service was stupendous. He made all dishes presentable and favorable. Each course was served in a timely manner and the food was so fresh and delicious! Thank you for a wonderful, restaurant-style birthday meal Ernesto!
