Chef Robert was unbelievable! He was punctual, so friendly, paid attention to detail, was so attentive to our needs. The food was incredible. This was my first experience using Take a chef and I absolutely will again, hopefully with Chef Robert! Could not recommend this experience enough!

Had such an amazing New Year's Day breakfast with Robert! He created such delicious dishes and we had such fun banter. I would highly recommend him for any of your cooking/dinner/brunch party needs. He really listened to what we wanted for the menu and even went above and beyond with a signature dish! Thank you so much!
