Chef Julian's reviews
Chef Julian was very accommodating and gracious. He recreated several dishes for my best friend's birthday dinner and a lifelong memory. The food and presentation was stellar - it was such pleasure working with him.

Chef Julian was very accommodating to our group. He modified his menu to meet our price range, added a new dessert, created a vegetarian option for our one guest, explained every meal in detail, provided a specialty cocktail and left the kitchen cleaner than he found it. Highest praise - hire Chef Julian for you next meal.

Chef Julian is amazing. His proposed menu beat out every other Chef's. He came early, was super friendly and professional. Before the day, he was always quick in his responses and kept in touch. He cleaned throughout the entire meal as we ate and left the kitchen spotless. Every bite was beautiful and incredibly delicious. Our bride and the party had the best time, all thanks to Chef Julian!

Chef Julian made a delicious feast for our bachelorette party. Whether it was the multiple hors d'oeuvres, or the perfectly cooked steak entree, everything tasted fresh and had so much flavor. He sourced locally grown ingredients and told us about how he prepared each dish. It was truly a night to remember and I would absolutely hire Chef Julian again!
