Chef Mariana's reviews

4.9/ 5

I used Chef Mariana as a surprise birthday dinner for my dad. Everything was impeccably prepared and tasted delicious. This was a 5 star experience and on par with any top tier restaurant. Would definitely recommend her!

Mariana was an amazing chef! Her food was amazing, and it was perfect for the surprise anniversary dinner I planned. She adeptly created a menu to satisfy my vegetarian/omnivore requests. I felt I had so many options, and I would totally book her again!

From charcuterie plate to cheesecake, Chef Mariana went above and beyond in quality and presentation for our dinner celebrating my husband's birthday, Everything was expertly prepared, delicious, and plentiful. The kitchen was left spotless and the dishwasher running when she and her assistant left our home. Both of them were highly professional and pleasant. I also appreciate Chef Mariana's flexibility. We had to reschedule to accommodate our guests, and she had no issues with that request. Our food choices included a charcuterie plate with a wide assortment of cured meats, pate, cheeses, and the yummiest gruyere cheese tarts. We followed that with a citrus seafood salad that was so filled with seafood it could have been our entree. But then we would have missed the duck with truffle pomme frites, which was heavenly. Our chocolate cheesecake with marscapone cream proved to be wonderful finale. I would not hesitate to hire Chef Mariana again. It was a wonderful evening and experience from booking to finish.
