Chef James did an excellent job! He was able to accommodate multiple dietary restrictions and his food was above and beyond what we expected. He was very easy to work with and tolerated our high energy crew. Would definitely recommend!

Chef Caitlin was amazing. Dishes were excellent. I would highly recommend her for any occasion. We had an intimate dinner with just me and my husband and she made it very memorable. Great person, amazing chef!
