Chef Tom was an incredible. It was a very last minute in change of birthday plans for my significant other and he was so attentive and helpful. He knew he had less than 24 hours to plan something great for us and he went above and beyond. He was so friendly, so thorough, the food was just beyond couldn’t have been better. While he was very engaging with us and very present he still knew just the right amount of space to give us that night so it could still be intimate and still have that special one on one feeling for us. I would highly recommend him as I know i will be requesting him myself again

Wow! Chef Thomas delivered an incredible evening for my extended family that far exceeded what I believe to be a high bar for food and service. In a time of COVID his work to provide distancing, wearing appropriate protection and food safety was flawless. He did this without compromising the experience. The food was flawless in presentation and taste. He provided plenty of variety for me to choose in determining menu and everything was made fresh onsite. Service was perfect balance of privacy enable an intimate feel to the meal and yet when we wanted to interact he was right there. Funny, great with my young daughter, informational about the food. Highly recommend this experience and Chef Thomas Baird.
