Chef Rodolfo's reviews
Rodolfo was AMAZING!
The food was out of this world. Even some picky eaters at our table loved everything. Chef Rodolfo was very engaging and told us a few stories about cooking for various celebrities and events. That part was really cool to listen to. The best part of the entire experience was the fact that I got to eat a wonderful meal in my own home and didn’t have to cook or clean! He hand washed all of my nice china that we had used and left our kitchen immaculate!
If you’re on the fence, definitely go for it and book chef Rodolfo Reyes.

Little car trouble and ran a little late but overall the food was great and he even had some stories that he offered to tell and the cleanup was amazing. Would definitely recommend.

We had the BEST experience with Chef Rodolfo! He was great with communication and expectations up front. We were staying at an airbnb in which the kitchen posed a few problems but he came right in and was able to adapt quickly. All 4 dishes were incredible and we enjoyed his company and conversation through out the meal. It was an intimate setting and just what we were looking for.

Superb dining experience was provided to our family for New Year’s Eve dinner by Rodolfo Reyes. His culinary expertise appealed to all our senses & was delightful. His personality is charming & humorous. His explanations of ingredients & technique inspired us to want to cook his recipes. An overall excellent dinner & dessert to celebrate the New Year. We definitely recommend hiring a personal chef for your special celebrations. It is fun to follow Rodolfo Reyes on Instagram @culinarybrigadechef.
