Wonderful experience. We were celebrating my mom's 70th and my father's heath meant we couldn't handle a public restaurant so we decided to bring the dinner to them. We had a wonderful dinner experience for a total of 9 guests. From the moment the cheif entered he was working hard. Easily 6+ hours of work. Everything was made on site. It was a truly great experience and everyone was talking about the food! Each cheif may be different, but I recommend as the host making as much space available in the kitchen, prepping the table and laying out plates a head of time. When talking to the cheif be clear on desired start and finish time. It's a lot of work and these little things seemed to help out a lot.
