Chef Israel's reviews
Our dinner with Chef Israel was incredible. He arrived on time and with everything he needed. The dinner (we chose the Dali on My Mind menu) was one of the best we've ever eaten, and Israel was friendly and personable, explaining what he was doing with every step and how he got all the flavor into the dishes as he went. So glad we decided to book him, and we would definitely book him if we're in the Tampa Bay area again.

This was my first experience with a private chef. We rented an Airbnb and Chef Israel came to cook for my wife and I. I had high expectations however, Chef Israel exceeded those as he was friendly, easy going, informative, and genuinely easy to talk to. His food that he created was artistic visually and the taste and quality was extraordinary. We were able to have a high end five star meal without sitting at a stuffy restaurant with a bunch of people. If you’ve never had a private chef, this is the way to go and Chef Israel is the one to get. He made the entire night phenomenal and I will jump at the opportunity to do this again. I highly recommend… HIGHLY. 10 out of 5 stars for this one.
